They forgot about me, then I went up 10 minutes before departure to board, and they told me I was late. It was a mess with overbooking too."

Pros: "Super friendly staff. Smooth easy flight."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Coffee refills"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "The plane was nice and clean and the staff friendly...good in flight movies and tv selection"
Cons: "The flight left 1 1/2 hours late..I know it happens but would been nice to have been offered a free snack maybe... I feel like they should have a few free snack options..regardless..even if it is just peanuts or trail mix, pretzels etc.."

Pros: "Not much to say hear. I would expect better service since they aquired virgin America"
Cons: "Crew didn't have a friendly approach to passengers they all seemed rude Not enough food on board or even drinks. I asked for water and she made it seem an inconvenience. Barely any legroom. Also the passenger that was reassigned to the seat next to me was not happy as they would not help her switch seats with anyone as she had a need for assisted care."

Pros: "I loved that they boarded Active Duty military early."
Cons: "They asked if we wanted to buy a snack before they offered a free snack."

Pros: "Arrived 5 min early and bags at bag claim in less than 20 min"

Pros: "Flight time"
Cons: "Behavior of Stewardess Barbara extremely rude. I had gone to the restroom at the back of the aircraft at the beginning of service. I went up and wanted to sit on my 7C seat but she refused to move the cart to accommodate me to pass and made me stand at the back of the flight for 2 hour of the 1 hr 45 mins flight time"

Pros: "Consistently beat the “your bags at luggage claim within 20 minutes of arrival” goal. Bravo Alaska"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They charged for food and entertainment. Next they will charge for bathrooms and water."

Cons: "Delays Alaska claimed no responsibility for meant my connecting flight landed two hours later than scheduled. Because it "wasn't [their] fault" I was given the option to stay 24 hours in city I never asked for, to "try again", without my baggage, the next day. No mention of compensation, no attempt to work with another carrier to find a flight because, as they claimed their flight being late to connect to their other flight is not their fault."

Pros: "After we boarded, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Although we booked the flight months before, and I'm both an Alaska and American frequent flyer, they would not assign us seats until when boarding started. In fact, unless I went to the agent's desk, I'm not sure they would have even remembered. Then my husband and I were split on the plane, and even worse, assigned in middle seats. Unacceptable. Last, unlike Hawaiian, they served no food. I'm flying Hawaiian in the future."

Pros: "That I get a free carry on"
Cons: "That I didn't know about the flight being delayed till I got there and didn't know exactly when we would board."

Pros: "The cabin crew was sufficient and delightful."
Cons: "I decided to try Alaska Airlines for my travels up and down the Pacific Coast, and I'm disappointed. Maybe my expects of on time and reliable flights are too much."

Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight arrived early Not full flight, more comfortable that way Boarding moved quickly, adequate overhead space Plane exit moved quickly"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as I switched into an empty seat following her count. Called out my move on front of other passengers with negative tone, but did not make me move, so OK overall. Without sale of open seat, the only way for Alaska to capitalize on that seat is to allow someone else to have a more positive flight experience with more personal space, so honestly she shouldn't have been rude. Tomato juice was hot from being outside, normally cool even without ice. Snack was fine, but minimal and snack boxes not available on short flight, so less stars for that. Entertainment nonexistent - film/tv access not available in flight without something in mobile device that was not explained, no plugs for charging."

Pros: "I always fly with Alaska Airlines when I need to go to LA. Fantastic flight attendants and good services."
Cons: "But on my last flight with them, it was delayed for more than an hour and a half, which was longer than the time I flew back to SJC from Burbank. That mixed up my schedule for the whole day."

Pros: "Loved the fact they had shows that you could watch through your phone just connect with their internet, they were very nice and fast at giving drinks."
Cons: "Plane was not the most comfortable, and super cold (could also be the fact I forgot my jacket and was wearing tank top) you have to download app to watch movies before actually watching them on plane. There's no way you can download app in airplane."

Cons: "The ice falling from the AC was so annoying. It kept falling on my skin and it was jarring and uncomfortable. I won't be using Alaska airlines again until you get that resolved."

Cons: "had difficulty finding how to input known-traveller number; missed out on the TSA PreCheck line... but the airport wasn't very busy so..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Only 1 flight attendant in first class for 16 passengers, as the other one disappeared most of the time, and when asked for help she actually refused, saying she was only helping coach class! Dinner service took almost 3 hours. Never asked if we wanted wine or another drink with dinner."

Pros: "Flight ahead of schedule, staff pleasant, and good price."
Cons: "I pre confirmed my flight online & checked in, along with a friend. I didn't realize I had to reconfirm when I got to the airport again, since my friend already knew the gate number. I had my mobile boarding pass on my iPhone, and got to my departure gate. When it got close to boarding time, my email boarding pass disappeared! Luckily I was able to get a paper boarding pass from the boarding desk. If I had not looked previously on my phone-I would have been delayed. Learning lesson on my part. Check in at airport too!"

Pros: "Online wifi"
Cons: "They ran out of hot meals for purchase one row ahead of me"

Pros: "Comparing Alaska 2 hr flight to transpacific etc may be fair, but this quick flight had the flavor of the best long flights. I have already recommended these folks to some of my friends."
Cons: "No negatives whatever.. Excellent"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."

Cons: "The Airline did not notify via text/email that the flight was delayed for 2 hours."

Pros: "The sites were great the flight was good departed on time and arrived on time mostly all the crew was nice"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses in first class was a little rude to some of the people on the flight. Ex. (the person next to me asked for a water in first class and was given a glass of water and told that's all we have) it was said in a really rude way and almost thrown at him not cool Ex. ( old couple was in need to use the restroom and asked for some assistance and she was really rude to them cause they needed here help to get up. again not cool if she was not having a good day then she should not have came in to work."

"Love the flight to NY. It was amazing. Just did not like the boarding. It was more than a hassle"

"JetBlue doesn’t inform their passengers of why the flight is delayed. If you land it and don’t get out of the plane yet they don’t tell you what you are still sanding in the plane. JerBlue doesn’t keep their passenger inform of anything. They really should be thankful that they are still in business and is that is to all their customers but they don’t value that at all."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, entertainment was excellent, the inflight crew was goo"
Cons: "Food was terrible, there were no options. Tha airport crew was horrible, I was more than an hour in the line, what could perceive is that there is not enough personnel, also what I consider disrespectful is that although people for Puerto Rico flight was standing on the line on time, they were trying to cope with their delay on other flights, and they had all the line waiting until they finished with the other flights. THAT was absolutely disrespectful of others time, I was there carrying my carry on baggage. Abdul rely HORRIBLE. When they finally called me there was no education to say even Hello, she only spoke to me to say I had to pay for one bag, and the overweight price, I tried to explain I purchased a different fare, but she didn’t care she just kept repeating the same. Ground crew was horrible and the complete procedure is horrible, I’ve never had such experience with JetBlue. To improve you should start putting kiosks, and mobile check-in URGENTLY please"

Cons: "Baggage check in, some idea of meal choice and availability."

Pros: "Nice leg room, I like the option to watch TV for free"

Pros: "Crew attitude. Ease of boarding. Price. Free snacks. Free WiFi."

Pros: "Every single JetBlue flight I have ever taken has been delayed. I can’t fly JetBlue anymore. You are unreliable and waste peoples time."

Cons: "Everything was great! There was a small delay, and that’s all."

Pros: "The staff consistently went above and beyond what I have experienced flying other airlines. The superior service began with the ticketing agent at Cleveland Hopkins airport and extended through to the flight crew. I am a convert. Whenever I can fly Jet Blue I will. I’ll tell all my friends and family that they should too."

Pros: "They unloaded the entire plane and put me on a flight 5 hours later"
Cons: "Avoid Jet Blue the employees have not ever taken curtesy training"

Cons: "6 hour flight and crew only came down once for drink/food. I feel like there should be at least two passes on a flight this long! (Especially when it flies over dinner time). My reading light didn’t work so that was also a negative on a long flight."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Got in very late, but the crew kept us informed of what was going on."

Pros: "the older gentleman who scanned our boarding passes was so very nice."
Cons: "the steward on the plane was mediocre - not the norm for jet blue. He was hard to understand, did not greet us, and brought me the wrong drink. I did not say anything, but not what I've come to expect from jet blue"

Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."

Pros: "So much leg room and free WiFi and DirecTV. United, take a lesson!"
Cons: "Compared to all the others, JetBlue was the best."

Pros: "I like what i always like, ro ok my seating in economy, crew who are friendly, good entertainment. I also lije that in boarding, peopke who tried to jump on early were asked to wait until their group was called."

Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."

Pros: "Was gud"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."

Pros: "Comfy seats, quick service."
Cons: "If you are in Zone 3 or 4 you pretty much have to check in your bag back there is no more room. Which I don’t understand and is highly incovienent."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"

Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."

Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."

Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"

Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."

Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"

Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."

Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."

Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"

Cons: "Alhamdoulillah"

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"

Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"

Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"

Pros: "On time. Most important"

Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."

Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"

Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."

Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."

Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."

Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"

Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."

Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."

Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."

Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"

Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."

Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 6 pm flight left at 8:19. Debris wasn't cleaned from plane between flights. Want some French fries? Lady had two barking dogs in first class. I was in first class. It wasn't worth the extra money we paid to be in first class."

Pros: "the aircraft was fine. leg room was slightly larger than other commercial flight i took recently."
Cons: "the crew at the boarding counter was unhelpful. my girlfriend and i were rescheduled to a later flight and were randomly assigned to 2 separate seats. online seat selecting did not work at all."

"Newer airplane!"

"Connecting flight missed due to 3.30 hour delay at Orlando"

Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."

Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."

Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"

Cons: "The attendants attitude."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "6 hour delay"

Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."

Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."

Pros: "They had the AC on while we were waiting on the plane at the gate for 1.5hours"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed for 2 hours, information was inaccurate/missing, they knew we'd miss our connections but did nothing except, "they'll deal with it in San Francisco" and when we landed there was no one in sight to help us--no escorts/expedite to gates, no one to tell us where to get rebooked, and after going back and forth between terminals, waited in line an hour to get rebooked on a series of flights that would get me in 22hrs later after my original flight."

Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"

Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not sitting on the runway for 2 hours"

Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"

Pros: "The food was pretty good and they served lots of wine."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment on a 9 hour international flight (only live news), so we had to use whatever entertainment we brought ourselves. Also, there was no place to charge our phones. I guess next time I should prepare better for something like this."

Cons: "I was forced to chance airlines, because, AA knew about an issue with the plane but still tried to used it."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"

Cons: "They charge for coffee."

Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"

Cons: "1. Crew on the PHI leg was not very friendly. 2. No entertainment on the PHI leg, but I did get to know my two neighbours which I wouldn't have if there had been entertainment. 3. Of course, the seats in economy were poor. My feet became very swollen."

Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"

Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."

Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."

Pros: "Crew was nicw"

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."

Pros: "not much, on time, but that is a low standard of something to like"
Cons: "Crew attitude,"

Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."

Pros: "The staff was very helpful in assisting nearby patrons, attentive to the people with disabilities, and carried through smoothly."
Cons: "Few staff people were clearly having an off day and seemed very unfriendly and crabby, especially obvious when almost everyone else was so friendly and attentive. Makes them stick out like a sore thumb."

Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"

Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."

Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."

Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"

Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."

Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."

Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"

Pros: "Pretty much on time departure and arrival. Comfortable, larger aircraft than usual."
Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"

Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."

Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."

Cons: "No seemed happy at all."

Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."

Cons: "See all comments in first leg section"

Cons: "Still haven’t left after two maintenance issues on two different planes, one of which aborted takeoff."

Pros: "Crew was ok they seemed disconnected from the passengers"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Serve drinks faster we didn't get a drink until we was 20 min into flight. I pay for first class expect a drink before we take off."

Pros: "The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not sticking me next to a 400 pound man"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room!"

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was nice."
Cons: "No charger at seat."

Cons: "Crew was late. Delayed the flight by 45 minutes."

Pros: "Customer service started from the gate agent. Both ladies were very helpful and extremely patient. They had a good community of work. Morning was efficient. The flight crew was very helpful. The gentleman and the young women were always smiling and checking in on customer service started from the gate agents. Both ladies were very helpful and extremely patient. They had a good community of work. Morning was efficient. The flight crew was very helpful. The gentleman and young woman were always smiling and checking in on us the passengers."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was 2 hrs late"

Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"

Cons: "Couldn’t understand what the crew was saying. Had to wait 29 minutes on plane after landing for a gate. The entertainment was annoying and the screen would not shut off. I did not purchase direct tv because I do not was to buy a product to watch advertisements. If you offer it then there should be an option to TURN OFF THE SCREEN it is super annoying"

Pros: "Power ports at the seats basically worked, thank goodness. If you pay for Economy Plus, there's a basic, humane amount of leg room."
Cons: "The bathrooms have been narrowed so that an average male can't turn around without contortions. The conditions, overall, are subhuman."

Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Snug srating"

Cons: "power plug didn't work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At the last minute outside my control I could not fly. I tried to get a refund or a voucher and I could not. Well I could but the cost of changing or exchanging the ticket was more than the face value of the ticket."

Cons: "I would like to have a response from United Airline , my email address is pamm. strickland @ gmail.com"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After the gates closed, an exit light broke and the staff took over an hour to fix it. Flight delayed."

Pros: "Delayed outbound so I got to CA much later than I needed to be."

Pros: "staff friendly"
Cons: "Could not check in on app due to basic economy . Made me what until last to board . I had no seat assigned until last second"

Cons: "Not a fan of the snack"

Pros: "Mints at the end of the flight! Leg room adequate! Professional attendants."
Cons: "During Boarding process we blocked the entire concourse making it awkward for non passengers of the flight walking to and fro who had to squeeze between us. Has to be a better way. Otherwise very smooth."

Pros: "Male flight attendant was so genuinely kind to an elderly couple next to me. Female was nice as well. Seat more comfortable than last flight. Flight on time."
Cons: "Cannot connect to wifi. No entertainment. Need stronger signal. No charging spot for electronic device in my seat."

Cons: "3 hour delay."

Cons: "Great flight crew"

Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"

Pros: "The service & how comfortable I was."
Cons: "That you have to pay for everything but I guess now a days every airline is doing the same thing."

Cons: "I was forced to rent a van with other people booked on a 9:40 PM flight from Newark to Hartford because one and 1/2 hours after the flight should have left we didn't know if it would leave in 1 and 1/2 hours or be cancelled United was trying new software or something that Sunday night and hundreds of flights were affected."

Pros: "First a long wait for plane repairs in Chicago. Then the plane couldn't be repaired so we had to wheel our heavy bags to a new gate and wait, again. Finally a new plane arrived and we finally got on. Nothing free but pretzels and water, etc. No compensation. No movies so I had nothing to do, since I planned to watch a movie. Didn't bring my book."

Pros: "The crew was awesome."

Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."

Cons: "Total flight was cancelled got trapped in Denver next flight was going to be out 3 days later. Customer care locations were closed. Still lost baggage. Had to rent a car in Denver and drive 2 Durango on icy roads. Totally terrible Airline and a terrible experience."

Pros: "Was shocked they still offered drinks on such a short and small flight."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "late> 6 hours, with an entire cast of characters that could not possibly care any less than they do."

Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."

Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."

Pros: "Average experience. Mostly pleasant enough."
Cons: "United changed our flight with No chance to object. Then reassigned us to separate seats. We asked to be moved next to each other. We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."

Pros: "The Inited Club"
Cons: "Flight never took off due to engine problems, That is understandable. What was not fun was the "every man for himself" trying to get to an agent to get alternate flights out. If you were sitting at the back the of the plane you obviously we're at the back of a long line and had no good options by the time you got to someone"

Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"

Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"

Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connection. United made no effort to help find a new flight. They stranded my at an airport for 12 and never even apologized."

Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"

Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."

Pros: "The seats were roomy enough. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight within itself was not a problem. However there was a hold up because on weather which is not a problem better safe than sorry. But trying to make our connecting flight was the problem we asked over and over for information on if we were to make our connecting flight and no one seem to be able to give us a relatively fair answer on what we were to do because of the delays. Needless to say we missed our connecting flight in New Jersey they shut the door and said we could not board, that's OK if that was the rules but what to do next was the problem, no one could seemingly help us.We had to walk around to find someone to help us to only be told that we can just get the next flight but we had to go to customer service to get re-ticketed which was making us missed even another flight the lines in customer service were extremely long and they were going extremely slow so I had to jump out of line and go to a gate in which someone help me get re-ticketed to catch the next flight. We were to have someone to meet us in London in which we had no way to connect with them to tell them we were going to be 2 to 3 hours late. Once we got on a flight the plane was clean, the seats were spacious enough for economy and the staff was friendly but coming through New Jersey was not what I would want to do again but I had a flight back coming through. The horror!"

Pros: "Nice cozy seat, but seatbelt was about 6" shorter than most planes-wouldnt fit a medium-large person."
Cons: "Paid a lot for an upgrade, and our bathroom was out of order, the stewardess was snippy, and my expectations were less than met."

Pros: "Everyone was kind and on time"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats were too cramped..knees hit seat in front and I felt like I couldn't use the arm rest cause my hand would be on the knee of the person next to me"

Pros: "That it was direct form Cleveland to LA and it left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Chairs are so tight and hardly move back enough. Why can't they have some form of lumbar support?"
