Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Clean plane and punctual flight"
Cons: "Overall no complaints"
Pros: "The flight crew was great, and the flight itself was smooth. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "There was an issue that was beyond the control of the ground staff (the ladies and gentlemen at the check-in counter) that resulted in a three hour delay. I think they could have been a little more forthcoming about the whole situation instead of just saying “we’re working on it, safety is our number one concern at Alaska Airlines.” They however give us a voucher for $75 credit toward our next flight with Alaska Airlines, and that notification came through before we had even disembarked at our destination. I appreciate their understanding and willingness to try to make an undesirable situation better. I would fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and they were all really polite and helpful!"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken so I couldn't listen to all the great movies they were offering. It's a little thing that changes the whole experience."
Pros: "Nice to have pre reserved food ready for me on the flight. The entertainment options were excellent! So many free movies to choose from."
Cons: "The bathroom smell in the back of the plane for 5 hours was awful. Plane wasn’t cleaned before boarding. Food crumbs in seat and on floor."
Cons: "We missed our flight because customs in San Fran airport was severely under staffed. The tunnel to get in didn’t have lighting, people had to use flash lights on the phone. We had a connecting flight from once we landed in San Fran from Puerto Vallarta, maybe there should be an expedited line"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 2 hours and when we finally boarded, we were delayed almost another hour because the lights weren’t working. I was trying to get home with my twin two year olds so they could see their grandfather who has brain cancer and not much time left. Besides the very nice flight attendant, it was probably the worst flight experience I’ve had."
Pros: "On time and the flight crew kept everyone well in formed."
Cons: "The plane was too hot...way too hot...for most of the flight. The cabin crew was very polite but not very attentive. It took forever just to get a glass of water...plain water."
Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."
Pros: "Staff was lovely, load the plane and left pretty quickly, and was overall comfortable"
Cons: "Little bit of turbulence, and our plane took some time getting to the gate."
Pros: "Great movie and entertainment selection!"
Cons: "The plane was really cold at night. I wish they could offer economy blankets and pillows"
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 10pm. We all boarded only to be told that some ground crew vehicle ran into the cargo door and scratched it so badly it had to be reported. The report must be filled out and sent to Seattle for review. We were told by the air crew this would take a few more minutes. It took over almost an hour and a half. Screaming babies and a FULL plane. We finally changed planes to the other end of the Terminal. I got no sleep and missed a very special Labor Day Holiday with my daughter because I am sleeping now. I dont understand how your own ground crew can damage your plane and it take so long for you to decide to change planes AFTER BOARDING A FULL PLANE!?!?"
Cons: "Well besides spending a good amount of money. 7 hour delay because the plane was busted. Ruined not just my night but everyone else who flew southwest I was supposed to meet up with. Supposed to arrive at 7. Had to take a uber because it’s now 3am. First and last time EVER fly with them"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Pros: "I had no problems with my pet"
Cons: "Great flight fast Only thing was I didn’t get my boarding pass for my second flight and I had to go through security all over again"
Pros: "The entertainment ward top notch!"
Cons: "Bluetooth headphones didn't work. Would like to see that as a possibility."
Pros: "The mood lighting on the plane."
Cons: "Not applicable; everything about this flight was great!"

Pros: "Love Alaska airline!"
Pros: "The flight attendants went above and beyond to find my family seats together. Entertainment was great. Wish food options for purchase were better."
Pros: "good straightforward flight"
Cons: "Priority boarding is wonky and was ignored whole flight pass onboarding. plus, more legroom needed WITHOUT an upcharge."
Pros: "The direct flight"
Cons: "Our flight attendants were rude and didn’t serve enough water"
Pros: "This was a completely booked flight during Xmas week, and the flight was delayed an hour. Alaska Air did a great job of accommodating these difficulties. When I checked in online they had a notice asking if we would volunteer to check bags for free because they knew overhead space would be tight. Once the flight was underway they announced they'd been able to reroute to save us some of that time. And the Alaska Air/Horizon connecting flight was also delayed, most likely to accommodate this large flight. The aircraft is wonderful--the plugs for devices at every seat plus free entertainment piped to our devices really helps to pass the time."
Cons: "Person announcing the boarding needs some enunciation lessons. She spoke too quickly and on top of (or below) other announcements and even kept talking when she was doing something beneath the podium, so no chance to read lips."
Pros: "Quick flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "The chicken salad sandwich was okay."
Pros: "I felt like there was ample leg room, and liked that the back of the plane boarded before the middle of the plane."
Cons: "The scripts didn't sound well rehearsed, and disrupted my audiobook longer than. Necessary"
Pros: "Prompt easy quick"
Pros: "The crew and especially a certain male flight attendant were absolutely wonderful! Great sense of humor and personality. As this was my first time flying with Alaska, I feel very positive about future travels with them."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Alaska is always a great airline. New, clean, spacious airplane - even for a 737. Crew was professional and courteous. Seat back electrical connections are great. Definitely the best non-widebody flyer to Hawaii."
Cons: "Prefer (seatback) screens with content vice tablets to hand out. HNL to mainland is a long flight."
Cons: "Plane issues kept us on the tarmac for 2.5 hours before we took off"
Pros: "fast, little layover, good snacks."
Cons: "noise level, crowded spaces, leg room, crew was a bit worn down looked annoyed."
Cons: "Better vegan snacks available for purchase would be great."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The unexpected turbulence"
Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."
Pros: "Complimentary wine Entertaining crew Quick & free gate check baggage clean & well air conditioned plane"
Cons: "Flying on an old tiny jet"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi and entertainment was great."
Cons: "We left 4 hours later than expected. Didn't get home until the wee hours."
Pros: "We were on our way to a bachlorette party and the crew was really fun and adding to the whole experience."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew members."
Cons: "Boarding just takes a while to get started."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "I was made to feel comfortable right from Bangalore by the checkin people, because I indicated to them that I had a fear of missing my connecting flight from Seattle to Denver. My connection to Denver went smoothly,however the flight attendants on Air Alaska need to be more courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Did not like the flight attendants but the pilot made up for the humour that was lacking. Never seen a pilot interacting the way this one did."
Pros: "I received updates on the many delays this flight had."
Cons: "When flight was delayed, a snack or something additional would have been nice for the children."
Pros: "Movie selection Food options Flight attendants"
Pros: "• Quick to board plane and take off • Flight arrived sooner than expected • built in plugs so you can charge your computer or phone."
Cons: "They have a 20 minute policy for baggage claim. At the 19 minute mark they sent up about 20 bags and stoped. It took them another 30 minutes to start sending more bags. One of the airline attendants spelt a fruit package on the floor in front of me. The juice from the package got all over my bag below the seat in front of me, getting important military paperwork damaged and she didn't even apologize."
Pros: "On board service was terrific."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour delayed and then there was no gate available upon arrival!"
Pros: "On time, nice staff."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and large overhead for belongings"
Cons: "WAY TOO HOT!! Both flights to and from SLC had way too much talking. Captain would come on and then the flight attendant would say the exact same thing. Couldn't sleep more than 20 min without someone coming on the speakers which were super loud."
Pros: "Wow what a difference! My first flight to Portland was not a good experience, but it was with Spirit Airline, who charges you for everything! I'm surprised they didn't charge us to use the bathroom and the landing:/ I felt so much safer and welcomed on Alaska!!"
Pros: "The upgrade to 1st class was nice."
Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "Everything was just fine"
Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but not much room"

Cons: "It would be nice to have an enforced carry on rule as people bring multiple large bags on and tie up the storage space."
Pros: "Amazing SLC Skyclub crew"
Pros: "Myself and my wife were rebooked and arrived home the same day. Albeit 7 hours late."
Cons: "Flight left gate on time, yet departed 1 hr late because deicing took almost 1 hour. There was only one truck working."

Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile.

Pros: "As poltronas estavam OK."
Cons: "No voo MEX-GRU o Sistema de Entretenimento nao funcionou por quase 3hs. A refeicao foi muito fraca, tamto no jantar quanto no café da manhã. Onde ja se viu comer feijão preto com onelete no cafe da manhã??? Deveriam pensar no tipo de passageiro q estao atendendo."
Pros: "Generally everything went smoothly on this leg of my trip."
Pros: "Easy to board."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather."
Pros: "The flights were smooth, it was an easy process"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, professional and overall excellent."
Cons: "I don't care for the MD planes."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "Columbus airport is very nice. Security was quick. Boarding the plane was smooth and no problems. Staff was very nice too!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."
Pros: "Quick and Easy"
Cons: "It would be nice to over drinks at least. I know its a short flight but coffee would have been nice."
Pros: "30 min. early!"
Cons: "Only pretzels"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "LaGuardia is always delayed...this time was only about 15 minutes."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Booked as Delta but flew WestJet. Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Only minimal snacks available due to shorter flight."
Pros: "Delta Club"
Cons: "Beverages fir 1st class"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and they gave us free sandwiches since the flight was so delayed. I really like how nice they were in greeting everyone and asking if you needed more drinks or food."
Cons: "Due to some kind of mechanical problems, the flight was delayed for over an hour. And also the gate changed several times, which was a little bit confusing for me."
Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Pros: "Tim was great!"
Cons: "The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight."
Pros: "The air hostess didn’t smile while offering cookies, but she wasn’t rude. She later asked my fellow passenger to move to another window seat and I had the comfort of 2 seats."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic. Very helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our layover. The only way they initially could correct the issue was by booking us a flight 5 days later. Finally found a helpful person at the gate after calling American Airlines and getting no help. We lost day of our trip, but it’s better than 5."
Cons: "Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault)."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "short flight"
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"
Cons: "WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work."
Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Pros: "Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Cons: "Could have been given more snacks for 3 hr flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra."
Cons: "It was delayed."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment and the seats were old and uncomfortable and it was ridiculously cold"
Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"
Cons: "All was good, flight attendants were exceptional"
Cons: "After waiting for the plane to receive some kind of maintenance for hours on end and missing our connecting flight, they finally sent us to another city to catch a different plane to our final destination."
Pros: "Everything was excellent about the flight. I had no issues"
Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"
Pros: "Boarded on time. You should let only executive Platinum board after 1st class. The value is diluted when ALL advantage members board at the same time."
Cons: "Boarding. See above."
Pros: "As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"
Cons: "2 hour Delay"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Left on time. Arrived a little early. Flight attendants were friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight. Wasn't expecting food or entertainment."
Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Customer service was good, I also liked the text updates."
Cons: "I really dislike that the make you check your carry on now. Most airlines let you take your carry on so I’m used to that. It also originally said $25 but at the check in it was $30. Plus I prefer not to check in my bag because it is faster, but since I did I had to stay at the airport an extra hour."
Pros: "Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time."
Cons: "If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport."
Pros: "Generally efficient, clean"
Cons: "Crew seemed hurried - when asking if people wanted coffee walked by so quickly I did not have a chance to reply"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew was very friendly on all legs and provided excellent service. The good was actually good."
Cons: "The seat could have been more comfortable for a long trip but still better than your typical American airlines."
Cons: "Extremely poor communication. Arrived in Bozeman almost two hours behind schedule. Sat on the runway FOREVER waiting to get to the gate after landing. Flight attendant gave reason but couldn’t understand her. Rude flight attendants. Just overall not a good experience. It’ll be my last with United."
Pros: "Everyone was nice, boarding was smooth, and we even landed early. Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the trip really. Crew did a fine job."
Pros: "Pretty good leg room and nice refreshments, but the flight was delayed quite a bit and caused to me to miss my connecting flight, which I was told I had plenty of time to get to."
Cons: "See what I liked*"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The flight from Columbus to Chicago was originally suppose to leave at 6pm we had a 3 hour delay and did not leave until 9pm. This delay caused anxiety because there was a connecting flight ahead and we were afraid we would miss it."
Pros: "The boarding and waiting area at Houston's airport is very nice"
Cons: "I believe United is now giving advance grumpyness training to thier flight attendants. I have rarely meet anyone in a service position vibrate such intense waves of superiority and condensention out side of the perhpas the DMV."
Cons: "Sat in the very back row. Seemingly had less space than any other row and got hit by every person walking to the bathroom. I know united can’t control how often ppl go to the bathroom but this was a rough flight with constantly having ppl out of their seats. Crew was great!"
Cons: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"
Pros: "Less than an hour in the air- commuter shuttle"
Pros: "Excellent crew."

Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."
Cons: "The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both."
Cons: "Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way."

Pros: "They offered us a $50 E-certificate for a future flight to compensate us for the long delay."
Cons: "It made a long day even longer, and, even though they didn't have anything positive to tell us, I would've liked more frequent updates from the flight crew about how long we had to wait."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedures by groups. I also was forced to check my carry-on, even though after boarding there was plenty of room in overhead storage. Because I was in group 5, they assumed it would be full. They didn't check or allow me to check."

Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
Pros: "Great service on first and third flights, customer service did an excellent job getting me on a new flight itinerary at the last minute when my original was delayed. Overall I only arrived about 3 hours later than I was supposed to."
Cons: "Being delayed in the first place--bummer, but not huge deal. 2nd flight seemed badly organized and not dealt with very well. Multiple people were booked in the same seats, etc. Not impressed."
Cons: "On my flight from Columbus to Houston on Dec 24 flight UA4938. I had a very unpleasant episode with one female attendant which yelled at me and talked in an un appropriate tone when I needed to use the toilet. There are manners and ways to say things and anyone would listened to them. As a customer I deserve respect, as they deserve respect from me. I am a frequent traveler and been flying basically all my life. And never encountered a flight attendant with such a bad attitude. I travel abroad the US several times a year. After this incident I am not sure if I want to fly with United again, if they make poor choices when they select their crew ."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "4 hrs late. Lack of clear update at airport. You have to pay for even water."

Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"
Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"

Pros: "The humor of the pilot, really was a surprising experience"

Cons: "MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST!!!"
Pros: "NOTHING!!! Worse customer service I've ever experienced. 2 canceled flights and no email notification for either. Hell in one instance they counter never opened to explain the issues. NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "Good deal"
Cons: "Easy board ing"
Cons: "Constant waiting and delays and ridiculous fees. Would be better to charge more instead of deceptive charges."
Pros: "We were informed well of equipment delay. Boarded quickly after plane passengers deplaned and plane was cleaned"

Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Cons: "3hours delay"
Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."

Pros: "Very disorganized and service is pathetic."
Cons: "They weren't upfront about the cancellation. They delayed it 4 times and kept pushing it back before they finally came out and Said it was cancelled. I could have stayes in my hotel if they would have just said upfront."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised. They loaded back to front and folks were not carrying on much. You might give us a free soda. Overall excellent."
Pros: "Early arrival into destination"
Cons: "Having to pay for every service"
Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"
Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
