Cons: "Seats hard and didn’t recline. No food."
Cons: "Dumped out in cargo to take a bus? Late late late"
Pros: "Only one lady on the crew was working so hard and very nice. She was doing everything the other lady who was a bit younger did nothing but walk up and down the isle. If it was up to the younger lady the people who have suffered."
Cons: "Plane is old and noisy, the first class was something from the 90’s I have flow premium economy on other airlines which was better."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and very pleasant"
Pros: "Everything goes so smoothly.friendly crew. Good coffee."
Cons: "Nothing. Tight squeeze."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and did not feel confining. Takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "Having a male flight attendant wearing makeup was off-putting. A gluten free option for snacks would be nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over 2 hours. No explanation except it was being towed to the gate that took over an hour. Then the pilot came on to explain it was an issue with the potable water system. They didn’t have enough breakfast sandwiches ran out before row 16."
Pros: "The only enjoyable thing about my flight was the couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "We weren’t served drinks until nearly 2 hours in. They kept making announcements saying “it’s really turbulent and not safe” but I’ve flown a lot and we barely had any turbulence the entire flight and at no point was it unsafe. When it was calm they were hanging out and taking in the back."
Pros: "All the ladies (and the pilot) who helped us were so lovely and helpful! Thanks for such a wonderful experience ❤"
Cons: "Not that the airline had any control, but the turbulence was the worst I'd experienced (and longest-lasting) in the 40 years I'd been flying. The crew kept everyone comfortable, informed, and safe."
Pros: "Staff was professional but not warm. Boarding was easy and the timing was great."
Cons: "Cramped. Absolutely no leg room and I’m 5 foot 2 inches. The bathroom filled up so no one could use the facilities for the last hour of flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the service was good."
Cons: "Stuck next to self obsessed millenial who couldn't stop taking selfies of himself and he kept rubbing against me (apparently not noticing I was there?). He had plenty of space so it was weird."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really great and nice."
Cons: "That I’m still stuck on this damn plane and we landed 30 minutes ago."
Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."
Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Cons: "Our flight was changed to a later time. I selected new seTs but when we check in our seats had been changed and we were not sitting together. The internet was difficult to navigate For more than just my husband and myself"
Pros: "Staff/Crew were all very friendly. Plane was clean and air temperature was comfortable."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device. This is horrible for such a long flight, when you happen to be one of those people who do not have a device for this. I will not fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Every single flight left extremely late which meant I was running through the airport to catch my connections."
Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."
Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."
Pros: "I'll let you know after we get on the one they pushed us to. Completely unacceptable service."
Cons: "We don't think that we will be flying an airline with such poor management teams in place again."
Cons: "I upgraded seats for $99. Compared to Hawaiian Airlines upgrade for $80 return trip from Honolulu to Oakland, Alaskan was disappointing. One older stewardess with long blk/grey hair and glasses was rude. I asked her a question and she told me to sit down. I was waiting to use the restroom. Must have been a bad day for her. We were fed on Hawaiian which was a treat."
Pros: "The crew members were fantastic. They had to go up and down the skinny little isle but they made everyone happy!"
Cons: "The plane had no room. the seats were very tight and our shoulders were way bigger than the seat. We are not overly large people. my husband in the isle seat kept getting booty bumped. You need better planes. Took Hawaiian home (much more space) and will never take alaska again, for the sole reason that i don't want to feel like a sardine anymore."
Pros: "The staff were very patient with very large group traveling. The staff were very cautious of them not burning themselves with the coffee. If when having large groups of non-speaking passengers, place their group leaders separate so that they can help translate for the crew and then not have to take so long to help them out."
Cons: "Allergies to dogs and there was a dog on the plane. Couldn’t stop sneezing and had an aweful time trying to pressurize my ears from allergies. Very difficult when air circulation can’t be controlled at seat. It was freezing and no way to close vent or stop air from hitting directly onto me."
Pros: "As always, the Alaska crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Food just is what it is. Free mai tai’s at the end of the flight we’re great!"
Pros: "nice plane and crew."
Pros: "I alway love flying Alaska airlines. Their flights are on time and their staff is friendly and professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that you have to pay to rent a movie. It's provided through most airline carriers and I was shocked they were renting out tablets to view movies."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome! Very helpful and attentive.`"
Cons: "I was told that I would have internet onboard the flight. I was very much looking forward to that. When time came to connect, all I got was inflight onboard local network. No texting, no watching of football games. I would not complain had I been told up front there was no internet access."
Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."
Pros: "Rick was probably the best flight attendant I've ever encountered! Granted it was First Class, but he went absolve and beyond with our family."
Cons: "Plane was a tad run down, i.e.: cosmetically things were broken or falling apart."
Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."
Cons: "I don't the seating arrangement in a 737-800. Three rows on each side makes the window and middle passenger very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very friendly crew that understood customer service and safety"
Cons: "On a long flight would like to have known of option to purpurchase hot meal"
Pros: "First flight (out of 5) they didn't run out of hot meals before they got to me."
Cons: "Delay for more than an hour due to malfunction in the cockpit with no explanation for a very long time. Seats would not recline even an inch and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was great and even though we were delayed in leaving Seattle we got in on time."
Cons: "Couldn't get the wifi to work dispite trying several times. I had even uploaded the gogo app previous to leaving Seattle. Seats were uncomfortable too, very little cushion left on them."
Pros: "Friendly crew, free mai tai."
Cons: "Pay for baggage."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines treats their customers as kings and queens and not a burden like other airlines. My flights were on time, comfortable, peaceful, and most of all welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing at this time."
Pros: "I loved that on the way home to Hawaii there was an option to get an app to access free movies and TV shows. It was awesome!"
Cons: "I tried going from the Entertainment link to the free chat link but it didn't work. Maybe I was at the wrong altitude or something but it would have been nice if I could switch between the two option of chatting and watching the movies and TV."
Cons: "My daughter missed her first two days back at college because of your cancelled flight. You refused to even attempt to book her on another airline. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "I paid for a window seat and the seat next to it. I ended up with two aisle seats. This meant my grand-daughter and I were not sitting next to each other. NOT ACCEPTABLE"
Pros: "Fruit and cheese platter was perfect."
Cons: "Felt very cramped. Kept getting bumped by passenger next to me and by the stewardess every single time she went up and down the isle."
Pros: "On board service was terrific."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour delayed and then there was no gate available upon arrival!"
Pros: "I had a connecting flight in Seattle and the gates were conveniently right next to each other which was great. The crew was awesome very friendly & helpful!"
Cons: "Just the oldness of the upolstery."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"
Pros: "Courteous crew, short flight, free drink, space still available in overhead compartment for my item, although boarded last"
Cons: "Other passenger seated in my seat had to move when I boarded, leak of water between inner& outer window panes Loose fixed wing bottom airflow closest to fuselage wiggled on takeoff& landing"
Cons: "The flight attendants on board the plane were amazing and I'm sure equally as frustrated as the passengers. The gates were mixed up at the airport. We were told we had to move gates and would be delayed one hour. One hour turned into two and just before noon they told us to rush boarding. If we didn't take off by noon the pilots would time out. They timed out and we had to deplane. Alaskan was not telling us very much information and we were again delayed until 2:15. We started boarding at about 1:35 and we sat on the plane until well after 2:15. Apparently there were mechanical issues and again we had to deplane. We, as were all of the other passengers, were extremely upset. They couldn't tell us what was going to happen. A supervisor came out and basically said I can refund you, you can rebook, or you can wait it out. There were limited spaces on flights for the next day. Finally, at 4:30, they boarded us again and took off at 5. The whole experience was extremely upsetting. Overall, we were delayed 7 and a half hours. We missed a whole day of vacation and lost money, with very little remorse or compensation from Alaskan airlines."
Pros: "All was as expected, lights were out for a late night flight, and attendants were quiet and nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours, so that had it's normal difficulties. This was I believe due to the weather, and not a fault of the airlines."
Cons: "Nothing! it was great! I was especially impressed with the crew’s politeness."
Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "I used frequent flyer miles for the tickets."
Cons: "The crew was late getting to the gate. All of them talked to me like I was a child they were disappointed in. No one smiled. I thought all of the crew was mad at us for using their airline."
Cons: "Overbooked and crowded, on a Sunday."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lots of empty seats... during covid/social distancing there should only be 2 ppl in a row especially if there is room...it was crowded and not consistent with signs posted saying stay 6 ft apart"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They couldn’t have done anything better, I guess their protocol was a bit different because of covid-19 but they did very good and I’m not sick!"
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Denver airport boarding crew was really Good. Flight attendants not so much. I’m sure they were as tired as the clients after the 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Better communication and resolve Maintenance issues or change the aircraft sooner. Which is what finally happened. Delay started in L.A."
Pros: "Staff was great. Very nice."
Cons: "We were 2 hours late. Missed our rental car. Sat on the tarmac for a very long time with no information."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Could have not delayed the flight 3 times."
Cons: "We did not board until 2 hours after original schedule"
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Pros: "Nothing extraordinary, just solid positive experience from checking in on my phone thtough disembarking"
Cons: "I like the convenience of the built-in multifunctional screens (like on Alaska flights) that AA are lacking"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Had to change our plans, and AA wouldn't give us a refund. We never got on the plane but had to pay for the tickets anyway. I'll never fly AA again."
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Cons: "I never made it... I had a trip interruption and got stuck in Chicago and would of had to wait another full 24hrs to take the flight to Denver. tired and nauseated after being all day at the airport that at midnight, i knew that I couldn't hold off till the next evening, took the next flight back."
Pros: "Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight left late and arrived late making my connection in Philadelphia for a flight to Budapest a very close call."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Pilots need to do a better job of communicating delays. Especially the ones piloting this particular flight."
Cons: "Checked baggage untimely, causing me to miss the train"
Cons: "We are delayed 7.5 hours dues to mechanical issues with our plane and told we would have to wait or book another flight the following day. American Airlines sucks!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are absolutely horrible. I feel crammed like a sardine in the plane. Seriously, can we adjust the seat widths and distance to the seat in front and make them a couple inches bigger?"
Cons: "Less boarding groups"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats that worked"
Pros: "The crew is good and attention"
Cons: "They need to prevent to inconvenience or un conformity towards to the people or customers becouse they don't give information in time"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the way this sudden last minute cancellation was handled."
Cons: "I expected at least an offer of some kind of compensation for the inconvenience. it didn’t and hasn’t happened thus far."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was very old (from the 90s?), cabin kept freezing all night. Now my husband's luggage has been lost and we are getting conflicting information on how to retrieve it."
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff. Plenty of in-flight entertainment options"
Pros: "Free in-flight entertainment. Like that in-flight entertainment is available on users device, rather than screens in headrests. Staff were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed d/t computer glitches and problems in NC. Once we eventually boarded, we were forced to check our carryon luggage d/t lack of space."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Pros: "The crew on both legs were attentive, especially in helping people with connections deplane in Dallas. Boarding was easy. Checking one suitcase for free was good."
Cons: "the first leg of the flight was delayed. The information about when it would leave kept changing at the gate. I would have appreciated some extra food due to the delay... I was unable to get food in Dallas, which my scheduled layover time would have allowed."
Pros: "Good movie selection, there’s new titles available to see and it’s perfect for flight time from Denver to Dallas"
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Cons: "We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Boarding moved along well, even though there wasn’t special boarding for families with young children. The plane was really comfortable (new 2x2) and the staff was really friendly."
Pros: "I hope I never fly American again!!! We were supposed to leave at 2.pm, but dud not until 11 pm. The AA customer service staff wanted to charge me $ for my carry on! We missed our connection of course! Had to wait 2 hrs at next airport for a hotel. Did receive food vouchers and luggage was checked in right away (good thing). But overall ridiculous! Missed an entire day due to AA not having another plain? Or not finding another way to put passengers in other flights."
Cons: "Customer treatment and lack of interest on custmer satisfaction. The Denver staff was changed so often they had no clue about customers needs and it was all about making the bucks for the airline."
Cons: "Getting to the airport early and waiting an additional ten minutes on the tarmac."
Pros: "Loved entertainment system need bring wireless headset however they will handout some later in flight."
Cons: "Seats were leather didn't let back air out."
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hours for mechanical issues and they were not able to do anything. Since booking with Kayak neither Alaska airlines or American Airlines would help in getting us an earlier flight and both airlines said they couldn't help after repeated calls. Won't be booking any American Airlines flights throug Kayak again."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly despite turbulence and bad weather, thanks to the crew."
Cons: "Seating is even more cramped than I'm used to, and everything outside of a drink and a biscuit is extra money."
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Cons: "Older A321 plane, WIFI horrible and no seat back entertainment as on newer A321s"
Pros: "Overall flight was satisfactory experience."
Cons: "Movie selection for entertainment"
Pros: "Cancelled my flight offered hotel vouchers thru 1800 united said they can't at the airport then 1800 united so it can only give vouchers at the airport"
Cons: "Service was surprisingly lacking for first class. No refreshments offered prior to takeoff. Dinner was mediocre, what you would get in economy. Beverage served was a glass of wine and small bottle of water and that was it for the entire flight. On an earlier flight in economy, there were two times we were served refreshments. No one bothered to collect my empty water bottle the entire flight. And this is first class ??"
Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"
Cons: "Stewardess was mean when I asked for a mask"
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Cons: "My son was flying on United from Colorado Springs to Denver, then on to Seattle for Thanksgiving. He rushed through as quickly as he could, but the door to the place was closing and it left 10 minutes early. United recorded him as a 'No Show', and there policy now is to cancel the entire ticket is you miss any segment of a round trip ticket. Thus, his entire $900 was forfeited, he couldn't even pay a change fee to catch a later flight. I hate American, and now I hate United just as much. These airlines shills have been allowed to go out of business when they last filled for bankruptcy. We fly in quite a few international airlines, and outside of Alaska, Jet Blue and Delta, maybe Southwest, US carriers are absolutely bottom of the barrel and it's clear that their employees don't care whatsoever. Will never book again in United or American. I'll try Amtrak before either of those carriers."
Cons: "Our BOS-SFO flight was delayed several times that would have caused us to miss our connection to HNL. Instead we were diverted to IAH where we spent the night at our expense. We are still in Houston awaiting our return to HNL. Too long a delay."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"
Pros: "Was offered complimentary food item and I am not sure why, perhaps my Star Alliance Gold status?"
Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."
Pros: "Food was good but had to purchase on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Delays.... The crew didn't know our gate was changed until we told him. Some of the crew were very rude."
Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."
Pros: "Great service! Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Really great service! Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful"
Cons: "Dinner was not provided, only 1 bag of pretzels & 1 drink. You did have the option of purchasing a dinner, but why would I purchase a plane meal that was supposed to be free to begin with? The flight was from 3:30pm - 8pm."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Why can’t the plane be boarded from the back to the front. Seems like that would be easier for all passengers. Also, I picked assigned seats when I purchased the tickets and my husband and I where separated in different rows."
Pros: "I typically dont fly with united, and this was a typical experience, staff was not friendly, terminal and gate change at last minute after I walking all the way to the gate, then another delay after we were boarded, now this was more airport related then United, but after they told us it was a 45min delay someone asked if we can use our phone or computer and the answer was a stern no with no explanation until someone got really upset, just not a professional experience, and this was why I don't fly united. But I had no choice this time."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants except for Linda were nice and friendly. The entertainment selection was great and made a 10 hour flight go quickly."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant named Linda on the flight who was very condescending. I tapped her on the shoulder for a request and she told me it was not appropriate to do so because “as flight attendants, we get tapped so often.” Then she skipped over me when serving the snack options because she didn’t make “eye contact” with me although my tray was down and I had my wallet and credit card ready for payment. I have been flying with United to go home to Hawaii for over a decade and have never been treated so poorly by a flight attendant on this airline. I am seriously considering flying with Delta, Southwest, and JetBlue exclusively from now on after this experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."
Pros: "We had arrived a little ahead of schedule"
Cons: "For an almost 6 hour flight, they chose a very small plane. Probably because they didn't sell enough seats on the flight so they downsized. Anyway, lots of people who boarded towards the end weren't able to store any carryon luggage. And as I listened to the crew talk to them, they weren't very nice about it. Sounded as if they were saying it's the passengers fault. We are allowed 1 carryon and 1 personal bag. For any flight that is longer than 3 hours, I believe the airlines should at least allow passengers to have 1 free check in. Then maybe we wouldn't be trying to carry everything on with us. Our flight to Hawaii wasn't very comfortable either. We had purchased economy plus but it didn't seem all that comfortable. Maybe because it was a smaller plane. I think it was a 737, not really sure but it had 3 seats on each side with no middle row. Food is for purchase! Outrageous."
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency."
Cons: "Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier."
Cons: "I actually flew on a different flight to HNL because my flight to SFO was delayed and would have caused me to miss my connection. So I actually flew from LAX to HNL."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"
Pros: "Everyone was gracious and friendly"
Cons: "Again in this second segment of my long trip, the Wi-Fi entertainment network went down with a couple of hours left in the trip. For a long trip, having something to view is helpful in passing g the time."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Water and drinks were offered regularly. For those who had the app there was inflight entertainment. We paid for plus size seats and had enough leg room."
Cons: "I believe that on the long flights built in entertainment screens should be standard. Most people did not have the app and many spent 8.5 hours without anything to do. Food is not offered on this long flight unless you pay for it. You must walk to the very back of the plane where the food is in warmers. I got a hamburger and it was a bit dried out. Could have been worse...just hard to handle since tomato, lettuce and condiments were on the side. A larger person sat next to me and took use of the armrest between us which made me feel like I lost 4 inches of my personal space."
Pros: "Thanks for the ONE toffee cookie at the beginning of the 8 hour long flight."
Cons: "I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. There was one younger African American flight attendant with a light brown, long curl wig that didn't look like she wanted to be there. You can tell by all her eye rolls, sighs and not responding back to numerous thank yous given to her. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. Food was just ok. I had the omelet which was mostly cheese. You had access to the entertainment only if you had your own system that would tie into the United app. For most people, it was probably not a big deal but I had to download the app before taking off (they did warn you numerous times) and if you didn't do it, you were out of luck."
Pros: "COS airport security was friendly, cooperative, helpful. With first flight since knee replacement I was worried about getting through security. TSA personnel were very patient."
Cons: "Seating was tight. Not sure how anyone could watch movies because the screen is so close to face."
Pros: "Flew to Austin instead of Houston because of weather. Then flew to Houston after 4 hours chilling on a plane in Austin!"
Cons: "Flight missed and now sitting here in an empty airport waiting for my next day flight at 650PM. Btw all local hotels are booked. Thank you United for stranding an active duty Soldier!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly for the most part."
Cons: "On both flghts we requested a bassinet for our 3 month old. We were told on the phone if one was available we were able to have it. Both flights had bassinets but we weren't allowed access to them. On our first leg the bassinet was in economy plus and we were economy. On the way home our fight was downsized to a smaller plane and the airline was too busy trying to cut 25 people off the fight they weren't able to give us a seat where the bassinet would be. We asked several flight attendants and got different answers from each one."
Pros: "The crew on board the flights were always friendly and Stern with unruly customers. Very good job in that department."
Cons: "I am 5'10 and 155 lbs I wasn't so cramped in the sets that when the person infront of me put there seat back I couldn't cross my leg or sit comfortable. I can't imagine what a person any taller or larger then me felt. Oh also the average size man sitting extra to me was spilling over my seat. Luckily he did not smell and was very apologetic. The only reason I booked through united was because of how cheap they were. But with Lon delays. Rude check in emoployees, bad snacks, zero in flight entertainment 7.99 to watch tv? Come on you have us trapped already. (returning to Hawaii) and one of the worst seating set ups of my life. Yeah I'll gladly go back to delta."
Cons: "Honestly, the customer service with United was in need of serious improvement, from the moment we checked our bags to the time we were in flight, we were given very poor service, the man at baggage check in was extremely condescending, acting like we should know everything about United's processing instead of just helping us with our needs in the first place and it added unnecessary extra stress to our travels from Colorado to Hawaii. I don't even want to blame the employees as it was very obvious that they hated their jobs and just wanted the shift to be done with; something needs to be addressed about how they can accommodate both employees and paying customers alike. Let's just say I can't wait until Hawaiian Airlines expands to Denver flights so we never have to deal with United again, as this is the only reason we used this airline."
Pros: "They offered complementary snacks and water at the gate when the flight was delayed by 2 hours for mechanical reasons. After such a long and tiring day, when I went to buy a drink onboard, the flight attendant didn't charge me. It was done as a courtesy for the lengthy delays. This was much appreciated and honestly made the irritation with the delays disappear. It's amazing what a little thing like that can do for a person. All the flight attendants were gracious and helpful. Overall, they made the flight good."
Cons: "I had to run to make this connecting flight due to the previous flight leaving an hour late, only to learn the flight was delayed. It was delayed 2.5 hours for maintenance."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "I had to RUN through the airport to get connecting flight. I had to pay and check a carry-on because my first flight was delayed and there wasn't time to wait for my bag. If I'd have known I'd have taken a regular sized suitcase."
Pros: "Boarding was a smooth process. Seating was comfortable for economy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to maintenance issues. My entertainment screen did not work the entire flight. FA stated that the issue couldn't be fixed since i didn't notify them while we were still on the ground. Granted he was a friendly FA, I was only offered a "wine" for my troubles. One FA was very rude. Seem like she didn't like her job."
Cons: "having to sit in an aircraft for more than 2 and a half hours after push back from the gate and unable to take-off due to a computer problem at their Chicago headquarters. If the captain knew about the problem, he should not have let passengers board so early. This flight was operated by United Airlines so Lufthansa should not get any blame for this."
Cons: "Over 3-hour delay. Various text messages including one that indicated the flight was leaving 5 minutes earlier; then it was delayed again!"
Pros: "We had economy plus seats, so I could still feel my legs and didn't have a near panic occurrence. Good news! The dents in my husband's knees from the previous flight are gone! A/C worked great."
Cons: "United flight attendants could use a good Dale Carnegie course. The attendants on our flight exuded "GO AWAY!" Our row mate (aisle) had a broken seat that she paid extra $$ for & she asked to be seated elsewhere. Attendant said there are no more seats. There was at least one seat in first-class; we could see it. She also asked for more pretzels......2 1/2 hours into the flight...the attendant said I gave them out already. One pack of pretzels? I wasn't offered any pretzels at all. And the movie choices....what?!?!?!?! I can't even begin to describe the disappointment that your "selection" of movies caused. This isn't a hop to Hawaii. It's long haul. Oh. And my feelings are still a little hurt I at being subjected to the SMELL of baking chocolate chip cookies that were being served in 1st class. Really? Superman vs Batman, Captain America, Barbershop II, Jungle Book, etc., AND having to smell cookies I can't have? It's just too much to take in on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "The flight landed safely and was only a few minutes late after delayed departure of 25 minutes."
Cons: "A problem passenger ruined the flight for me and several others. He continually left his seat when the seat belt sign was on. I figured he was back smoking or vaping in the lavatory as he came back smelling strongly of after shave, bit seeing him weave around he must've been drinking. Then he stood in the aisle and poured more after shave down his shirt and outside his shirt. The smell was so strong it gave me a headache and make me sick to my stomach. Then he left his seat and sat behind us somewhere with a woman. A flight attendant told another man to come up and sit where he had been sitting. After the man went to sleep this guy came up and kicked him out of his seat. Then he asked the guy by the windows to switch seats with him which the guy did Kama then he proceeded to make him move several times as he had to get out and get out of his seat looking for something. I'm not sure how these things are handled normally but this guy really ruined for me. Aren't there consequences for ignoring all the rules? I probably won't fly United again."
Pros: "My flight wasn't full so I had no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good"
Pros: "The spacious seats and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "The cost of food products on the plane. Could have been better food for the price."
Cons: "my seat had some trouble then my TV didnt work at all i asked the flight attended for some help she said oh yea that doesn't work then walked away ..5 1/2 hr flight i will not flight this airline again"
Cons: "I Purchased 2 round trip tickets for myself and my son. My son had a change of plans and purchased another one way ticket to leave a week earlier. So his first leg of my purchase was not used. They resold that seat on May 27. So they made money Twice on that seat. Then when we checked in to return on 15 June. We were told his ticket had been cancelled and I had to purchase another ticket for his return. The flight was NOT sold out. My entire row of seats was empty. So I paid for 2 seats for the same flight. This is theft, coming and going and I am calling my lawyer!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."
