Pros: "The crew was very attentive."

Pros: "Crew did a fantastic job"
Cons: "All was well"
Cons: "It was a little chilly."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Better snacks. No cost for checked first luggage"
Cons: "Nothing. I've flown on worse."
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."
Pros: "Selection of entertainment on a BYO-device was good, especially in the movies category"
Cons: "Weather-related delay is certainly not Alaska’s fault, but the 10-minutes waiting for a gate after landing was excruciating after such a long delay in the first place"
Pros: "Good communication re: the delay, comfy seats, super friendly gate staff, great free movie selection"
Cons: "Not sitting at the gate on the plane for 2+ hours:("
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."
Pros: "The Crew from check in to flight was amazing! Service with a Big huge smile."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Timing-Fasrer than scheduled"
Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"
Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"
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: "Dog allowed to sit next to me. It should be ina crate or at least on the lap of the owner"
Pros: "I missed my initial flight to Portland and people with Alaska immediately booked me for the next flight out. It was incredibly reassuring to have their help and patience. Even when there was a mixup with seating, the stewardesses took care of me and made sure I had a seat. Thank you Alaska, you made it right."
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
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: "I'm not sure who did it but I got bumped up to First Class. In the plane I was greeted by one of the pilots and an attendant that offered me a bottle of water and a hot towel. I just finished a long hot day in Texas, and the courtesy and comfort I received on the flight just made my day."
Cons: "Too comfortable to notice anything"
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I missed my flight by mere minutes. It was my responsibility to make it to the airport with ample time, but the doors closed on me with 7 min until scheduled take off. I understand the rule is that the doors close at 10 min before take off. The gate agent immediately put me on standby for the next flight and notified me that there was a good chance I could get on that flight."
Cons: "Did not get to sample the food as I fell asleep as soon as we got into the air. I kept waking up however because the seats were not very comfortable. There was not any space to recline the seats so my back was upright and it was difficult to be in a comfortable position. I have been in worse seats with other airlines, so the seats on this plane were not terrible, but travelers would benefit from an ability to recline, even slightly, and an adjustable neck padding."
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."
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!"
Cons: "The flight attendant went on and on and ON about how turbulent air was reported ahead, just because we're in a smooth stretch doesn't mean we're out of it yet, and so on. Must have been every 10-20 minutes. She just would not stop talking; while her voice was fine in person, over the PA it sounded like a cheese grater taken to my inner ear. I barely slept that flight; it was miserable."
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No overhead space Uncomfortable"
Cons: "The USB charger on my seat was broken"
Pros: "Professional flight attendants"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "check in at ohare was super easy. Also no security line. Friendly Staff."
Cons: "After push back we waited for about half an hour before we moved to the runway."
Pros: "Crew gave us updates"
Cons: "We were told it would take 5 minutes to deplane, fix the problem and reboard when it actually took an hour"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! I was on my way to my bachelorette party in Portland and they were so sweet, congratulating me and even giving my friends and I free drinks! I would definitely fly them again! LOVED IT! :)"
Pros: "Everyone was so kind, thoughtful and timely."
Cons: "Our seats didn't recline, making it hard to rest."
Cons: "There was no entertainment (movies) on this long flight. Not an issue for me, but I know other airlines typically do have them."
Pros: "Plane had a delayed boarding and no explanation for the delay eas given"
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: "Very accommodating staff"
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"
Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."
Pros: "After we got off the airplane, the flight attendants went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble understanding English find and get to the baggage claim. The service and kindness exemplified by the staff really made the whole experience wonderful."
Pros: "One of the flight crew sang us an original song just before landing. It included directions on safety etc. and it was delightful, funny and sweet. Then when I was in the terminal two of the same crew helped me figure out how to get to baggage claim."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great airline and service!"
Cons: "Small overhead bins. If your carry on is slightly larger you will have to check it."
Pros: "More legroom than expected."
Cons: "Movies were not free."
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"
Cons: "Coffee was super week No movies ORD-JFK"
Cons: "The seats were awful and uncomfortable. Payed 100 dollars extra for even more leg room and barely had any. Such an old plane for such a long flight. The seats in the first row barely fit a female with hips. The in-flight entertainment was staticky and you could barely see the TVs. Overall, one of the worst flights I have taken on JetBlue."
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Pros: "Complimentary snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Broken seat back, broken tray table, audio input didn't work."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."
Pros: "Service was awesome, 100% recommended"
Cons: "The food can be better."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good, especially the beef at dinner"
Cons: "Breakfast omelette was rubbery and really not good. Layover was way too long (4h). Not looking forward to my 11h layover on the way back, but at least JFK is a nice airport and I have lounge access through one of my credit cards"
Cons: "Jetblue the best"
Pros: "Everything was smooth, great service, friendly staff and captain. Arrived ahead of time. Free Wifi. Great inflight entertainment."
Pros: "You can always count on JetBlue for good snacks and free WiFi."
Cons: "But the snacks and free WiFi is not enough to payback the delayed departure experience. Just a week prior, my JetBlue flight was scheduled on time and then three things delayed thre flight for three hours right before we took off and now this! I was told it was due to needing to replace a crew member from another delayed flight. How can that affect so many people? The seat was also super uncomfortable and the back of the cushion was rolling forward, which made it hard to sit for that long. we also didn’t have a gate when we landed so that added on an extra 30minutes. Really disappointed."
Pros: "The rescheduling of my flight via a phone call"
Cons: "The delay of course"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Took 3+ hours to get in the plane"
Pros: "It was a great trip for the cost."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Free WiFi. Cute vids for Holloween"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I appreciate that they let families with strollers board after Group A, there seems to be more space than the major carriers, and the snacks are good!"
Cons: "My Satellite XM radio didn’t seem to be working."
Pros: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Cons: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly A lot of options from direct tv and other entertainment programs The seats were wide enough Free Wifi"
Cons: "The plane got 2 hours delayed The screen was too small There was no charger on the plane Food option was limited"
Pros: "That Harry Potter was playing"
Cons: "That our flight got delayed so many times, they changed the departure time to sooner at the last minute and we had to book it to the gate from security, we missed our connecting flight and had to sleep in the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we would have missed our connection in NYC. So we had to cancel the trip."
Pros: "Good snacks, entertainment and excellent WiFi. Boarding was efficient and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Loudest airplane I've ever flown on! All though there is excellent leg room the seats were the most uncomfortable!!!!"
Pros: "Per usual crew and plan itself were nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours from scheduled take off"
Cons: "my flight was delayed for 2 hours and there was no compensation for it"
Cons: "The seat was worn out into a bowl and very uncomfortable. They also forced me to gate check my bag. Why not check for free if you are always forcing us to hate Check?"
Pros: "Bring her own earphones as then u can listen to their varied entertainment channels. Gave free snacks & there was quite an assortment so I wasn’t stuck w pretzels again. Free soft drinks; nice flight attendants & smooth ride from Chicago to NY"
Cons: "Late boarding with little communication. Equipment failure delayed the flight after pushing from the gate. Additional delay of 10 mins one we got to the destination gate."
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "The headphone jack wasn’t working properly, sound was muffled and fuzzy. Couldn’t enjoy any entertainment provided. The flight was full so I couldn’t ask for another seat either."
Pros: "Free in-flight WiFi service for all travelers on the plane. Many onboard entertainment choices available using individual LCD screen display. Many selections of in-flight meals and beverages available for purchase during your flight. Online seat selection and online check-in were fast and efficient. Additional perks for travelers available online."
Cons: "There was no food included in my flight."
Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Pros: "Crew was happy and friendly"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Seats were comfy."
Cons: "No coffee. Snacks were smashed."
Pros: "They refund me the money"
Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"
Pros: "Ez check in with kiosk"
Cons: "I would like to see an organic food option, even with a fee if necessary. Recommendation, fruit like banana or apple. Certified organic."
Pros: "I liked my face mask. overnight flight"
Cons: "I don't think there is the option to turn off the TV"
Pros: "Boarding system efficient. Lots of leg room. Choice of snacks. Good service."
Pros: "The check in line was a little long, but moved quickly. Then the unthinkable happened and we got wind of our friend passing just as we got to the front. The woman working at the counter felt so bad for us that she actually moved us into our own row so that we could have the space to grieve. We were also traveling with a dog so that in itself was so kind and accommodating."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "My flights was delayed"
Pros: "Gave me my refund!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 times without sufficient reason. Weather was clear. Had to ask for a refund after the 6th delay. Missed an important event."
Cons: "The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead."
Pros: "Friendly staff and the on board entertainment and snacks"
Cons: "The last time I took JetBlue the flight was delayed by almost 3 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed for over two hours and then missed the connecting flight. Arrived at destination 2 days later via Cathay and the airlines lost my luggage. Until now my luggage is missing and no one has a friggin clue where it's at."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable, good selections"
Cons: "Tv wasn't working well. Sound was crunchy."
Pros: "the plane was good!"
Cons: "the plane boarded late"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, the airline wouldn't provide me with a refund. They also had no other flights to my final destination so I was stranded in Beijing. They also lost my bag in the airport - I fortunately found that. I won't fly air china again"

Boarding took a long time. Taking off took a long time. I spent over an hour connecting, disconnecting repeatedly from the Wifi just to watch the last 15 mins of the movie I watched on my first flight. Wasn’t offered ice with my drink. They passed me twice to throw out my garbage. And the guy next to me had his arm in my ribs the whole time.

This flight was excellent. Left and arrives ahead of schedule. The plane was only half full and they actually let people lay down in rows of empty seats. The crew was super kind to a large family with a bunch of kids who wanted to be closer together. I think Delta purposely avoids turbulence more than other airlines because I never experience jarring flights, even the red eyes. They served two meals onboard (which were honestly pretty gross but they are doing their best). Also the newer planes have really cool lighting that helps with jet lag because they mimic the sunset and sunrise colors, and have polarized windows that extend “night time” until they are ready to land in the morning. Pretty cool.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were traveling international in Twitter after contacting we were told we can carry one checked baggage but then we were not allowed and at gate they didn’t know the procedure and repeatedly checked our passport Poor customer service"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "Very nice, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Extended turbulence was very uncomfortable. One toilet out of service. Otherwise good flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to first class and the crew was so attentive."
Cons: "Nothing, glad this was a better experience than the trip to Miami."
Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Seats a lil tight"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."
Pros: "Crew was good seat comfortable"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Cons: "It was lovely. It was my flight from nyc to dc that was terrible."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"
Cons: "Friendly crew and lots of good free snacks!"
Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"
Pros: "the worst thing that I've traveled in my life I do not travel again by delta 3 hours without food and without taking or water we were not given that service is the worst its employees are a disaster"
Cons: "the worst thing that I've traveled in my life I do not travel again by delta 3 hours without food and without taking or water we were not given that service is the worst its employees are a disaster"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Pros: "Great movies...."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "Loved the customer service & movie options"
Cons: "The flight only had snacks for free; wish sandwiches would be given for lunch"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "N/A"

Two hour delay for no reason

Snacks must also be offered on late night flights!!

Super experienced pilot flew a steady flight out of a huge snow storm in Chicago ( no flights were landing and few were leaving) and landed like a feather in a driving rain storm in NYC LaGuardia which is usually a hard, difficult landing airport. Didn't see the flight attendants the entire flight except for boarding. New plane was a dream. Seats comfortable, tons of room for carry- ons and electric at each seat.

From timely boarding and announcements, to handing out sanitizing wipes (did not happen on my outbound flight on Friday) to handing out snacks to good customer service, all good.

Cons: "On time take off would be nice"
Pros: "Despite the poor rating because of the mechanical issue, I will say the pilots did a fantastic job with some pretty choppy air conditions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour while we were already on the plane. Minor mechanical issue that could’ve been handled at destination. The seat was super uncomfortable and I would’ve appreciated at least some more from the crew, like maybe even a bottle of water or something."
Pros: "AA is always a good time:) I loved the crew, the complimentary service and the comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "A bit more legroom than united airlines. Tvs were a plus. The service was excellent and they give you a full can of soda instead of just a dram."
Cons: "Nothing really it was a great value for the price."
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Service from crew was fine"
Cons: "No delay! Got notification that our flight was one half hour earlier. Then boarded aircraft, and it had electrical problems. Delayed. We had to get off. Then board another aircraft."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "Didn’t know basic economy has 1 personal item and 1 hand carry and I was told my the staff to pay for baggage my bag was canon soxe btw"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Pros: "Good service in-flight. Pretty comfortable seats and decent in-flight food/beverage options."
Cons: "Crew was slamming overhead compartments before take-off and would ignore questions from passengers. Late take-off, very late gate change and late arrival. No help from crew on the plan to get bags taken care of so boarding took forever."
Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
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: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "I was able to choose a seat in Cabin with more leg room and complimentary alcoholic beverage."
Cons: "It was late going to Chicago and late returning to NYC. There were no crackers. I don't like pretzels. The ONLY reason I flew American is because my company paid for it. I absolutely hate LaGuardia. It has a bad spirit."
Pros: "I'm glad they didn't fly an airplane that didn't pass the mechanic's evaluation."
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "Gates, delays, changes"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No opportunity for priority boarding. Flight crew no help. Just another hum drum experience."
Pros: "Very quick fight. Faster than anticipated arrival"
Pros: "The available movies and games in personal screen"
Cons: "Seat selection"
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "The plane was very old."
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "Personal TVs with many movie and game options. I also liked that I could view the flight map and timing details. Meals and crew were great too!"
Pros: "A flight that actually had extra seats? I couldn't believe it. Plus the entertainment options made the 8 hour flight "fly" by (no pun intended)"
Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays! A few hours. There were liars among their staff!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
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: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Pros: "On the 2nd flight it must've been a new airplane because this was the first time my knees weren't jammed into the seat in front of me flying coach. Most comfortable flight I've been on in a decade."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service and late departures."
Pros: "Overall it was a fine flight we were delayed an hour boarding. But this is good because apparently they didn't have a place for us to unload in Boston and we would rather be walking around the terminal in Chicago than sitting on the plane on the runway"
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "My luggage was lost!!! People were sympathetic but no apologies or compensation Also, we were forced to pay extra for our seats before we were able to print boarding passes. My husband and I were not able to sit together which was upsetting to me."
Pros: "Almost always on time, captain keeps us updated, friendly airline staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
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 entered the airport from the beginning everything is fine.On board service is also very thoughtful"
Cons: "I feel I have been treated unfairly. Boarding time. Crew many times took the Americans boarding pass 。when my hands was in half the time。Just because I'm not American?"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dislikes"
Cons: "The flight was super late."
Pros: "on time no problems"
Pros: "The crew was cordial but could have been more pleasant. Seats were horrible and the bathroom was smelly."
Cons: "Some type of air deodorizer in the bathroom and crew with a smile."
Cons: "A little more shoulder room and a spot where I can charge my phone on flight to be able to watch a movie."
Cons: "Longer seat belts"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No support for Amazon fire he tablets"
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "Unending crying children, non reclining seats,"
Pros: "Smooth ride and easy boarding"
Cons: "We started to print our boarding pass and needed some help, we had to wait for the staff because of the limited staff helping in the floor"
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."
Pros: "I'm sure this flight would have been fine if it wasn't missed due to mechanicals from previous connecting leg."
Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "Customer Service"
Cons: "Flight Late"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If you aren't going to turn on the air AT ALL for a 4.5 hour flight, at least don't lie to us and patronize us. After the SIXTH person asks you for air, don't continue to say, "Oh, are you really hot?" YES we were hot!! We were packed in like cattle with no air!!"
Pros: "New planes were more comfortable and I love the entertainment being free and with own devices"
Cons: "Basic economy should not be an option for mileage plus members"
Pros: "From what I encountered at the crack of dawn this morning... The staff handled somnolent, irratable passengers in a full capacity 757, with nothing but unwaivering efforts and kindness. (shrieking baby temper-tantrums, service dogs, and people allergic to service dogs included) Even while dealing with the most self-entitled, disappointingly inconsiderate individuals, the flight attendants kept their composure and remained understanding, professional and accomadating. As for that rude, pompous pig of a woman up in front.. try and remember we're all human here and you should attempt to treat others like so. I can't imagine the staff being particularly fond of the idea of spending an hour delay with your continuous, huffy bitching in their ear. (as if they have any control over the situation"
Cons: "Me and my boyfriend's seats were separated on both flights.. apparently it was in the fine print.. I don't know :/ kind of sleasey, kind of lame. Be transparent. Luckily, met a great guy who had no issues switching! :)"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."
Cons: "I was in a window seat with my leg next to a vent that was pumping out extremely hot air the entire trip. I was told nothing could be done. They give $1k vouchers to passengers that move to later flights bc of oversold flights. What should I get?!"
Cons: "I paid 7.99 to watch movies and it didn't work the first 2 hours. I end up watching one movie and we landed before I finished it"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and pilots."
Pros: "The steward was very helpful, when we were stuck on tarmac for thirty minutes, she helped with my next flight showing me how to reach next gate in time to board."
Cons: "Stuffed into seats. The three seats where there is only room for two is absolutely terrible. Average people have shoulders not of a nine year old. The middle seat is ridiculous."
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Pros: "Comfort"
Pros: "Due to technical difficulties, the entire flight received DIRECTV service at no charge."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed without notice and we had to scramble to a new gate. Turbulence over the Rockies added time to the flight."
Cons: "Male attendant is very poor"
Cons: "Food and crew could be better"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "flight was safe and on time"
Cons: "I could not find any free options on the entertainment system to watch"
Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "Flight delayed 3.5 hours due to server error. I tried to grab another flight from customer service, got a rescheduled flight but now their hotel reservation system crashed. Now I'm laying on a bench in OHare by United Customer Service- unable to board the original delayed flight and no hotel room for the night. I'm so anxiety ridden and exhausted that l am physically ill. I finally got a room at the Hilton OHare at 12:30am. So much for that 9pm flight."
Cons: "This was the worst flight delays of my life. I have lost all faith in United. Tech is such an important factor to a successful airline and United needs to ensure performance and proper maintenance across the board."
Pros: "Spacious seats, crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "It took a long time to get everyone on board even after the crew kept paging that they were closing the door. After running to catch the flight it would have been nice to stop before getting on the plane for food. Food service etc was almost 2 hours after getting on the flight."
Cons: "our flight was delayed more than 2 hours due to weather. Of course, not a pleasure to have, after flying so far, but I appreciated how apologetic the crew and pilot was, under the circumstances"
Pros: "Was a generally smooth flight."
Cons: "No plug outlets in my row, no availability of entertainment via their app."
Pros: "For the past two years my travel has increased tremendously. United is the preferred airline: On Time Smooth check-in Friendly Leg room Wifi"
Cons: "United Airline's App could be more user friendly. Challenging to add my mileage to the MileagePlus program. Eventually had to go to the main website and navigate my way around."
Pros: "Crew were friendly."
Cons: "stuck on a 4 hour flight with a seat where the cushioning is worn out, you would think on a longer flight they could include some in-flight entertainment, but that's an extra $8."
Cons: "Delays can happen but gate changes were way too much. And the lady at the gate desk was very unkind. When I ask some info she almost yelled at me! She said she just announced, but some ppl might have been at the gate and some might have not. God, I was not there to get a lecture."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, was suppose to depart at 10:50pm, did not take off until around 2am. Constantly changing gates. Tiring experience."
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Flight Attendants"
Cons: "No movies Cramped seating"
Cons: "Seats were hard, worst I've ever experienced. Seat power outlets were inconvenient."
Cons: "The plane was late, filled to capacity, and I spent over 4 hours getting bumped on both elbows. The temperature of the aircraft was about one degree below sweltering."
Cons: "Absence of leg room."
Pros: "The flight was good..."
Cons: "No entertainment was available ... even do they announced ..."
Cons: "It seems a bit ridiculous to have to pay $8 for any television/entertainment options. We did it anyway, and by the time we were able to get headphones from the flight attendant all of the movies were about an hour in. Our only option was to watch the end, and then watch the beginning after. If I'm paying extra, I would expect the type of system where I can select my movie and watch it from the beginning. On top of that, once we did start watching, the headphones were terrible quality. We had to turn the volume all the way up, and still couldn't hear over the static. Disappointing."
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Second delay in a row"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Had several delays also a mechanical issue, I've had the same problem a few other times with United in the past, most likely not booking a flight with them again."
