Pros: "Got here early"
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. Customer service."
Cons: "Snacks other than the cookie they always offer."
Cons: "Temperature on ground and in air...stuffy and warm"
Pros: "The crew member did a good helping me"
Cons: "If Alaska didn’t overbook my flight then bump me off"
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 got awful seats and sat nowhere close to each other"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing & super friendly. They have a 20 minute bag guarantee so you get your checked luggage super fast."
Cons: "On one my flights I had to sit in an isle seat & people kept bumping me while I was trying to sleep but that's really out of anybody's control so I can't fault the airline for it!"
Pros: "Seats had decent leg space."
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault 100% but getting a bag checked in Honolulu was a nightmare. Kiosks didn’t turn on until 9:30a and no desk assistance until shortly thereafter then immediately overwhelmed by issues with the kiosks. Needed my full 4hrs transfer, everything took a very long time."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPads for rent. No in seat tv screens Seats are hard"
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "Simple ways that make the atmosphere in the air a little more welcoming and friendlier."
Pros: "The only positives were that the flight was on time and crew members were reliable."
Cons: "The seat was very dirty. I even felt the need to wipe it before I sat down, and the tissue I used became black. Otherwise, I felt like the plane was tight and uncomfortable for a 5.5 hour flight. At the end, one crew member was complaining about how slow we were to disembark to the people on the plane."
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight"
Cons: "Dirty tray table, crappy snack"
Pros: "I always love flying Alaska and the flight attendants are always super nice!"
Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "I loved how helpful everyone was. It was our first time flying with a baby but everyone answered all of our questions and helped us."
Cons: "The only bad thing was on one of flights there was no changing table in the bathroom I used."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"
Pros: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Cons: "The person next to me missed their connection due to sitting on the tarmak."
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "Flight was really packed and I was traveling with a baby and ended up sitting next to a heavier person who kept bumping into me and baby. Felt very constricted and tense but the passenger was very nice. I just paid a lot for ticket."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "Flight was fine - can't really say much real good or bad - we slept most of the time. Left tablet on board and a crew member retrieved it for me and did so with a smile. Pretty happy with the flight."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
Cons: "All legs of my trip from San Jose to Seattle to Philadelphia and back were all delayed; so much so that on the trip to Philadelphia, I had to be rebooked on Delta; and on the trip back to Seattle, I almost missed my flight due to a 50 minute delay on the runway waiting. I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "The short flight was made especially nice with one flight attendant offering to give a free drink for showing Seattle seahawk pride! Either wearing a jersey or showing a picture with seahawk pride. Very friendly and fun! The views were very beautiful also! Love Alaska airlines and LOVE the seahawks!!"
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, loved the charging port on seatbacks, kind staff."
Cons: "Could've used more options on the entertainment website, or at least shown a movie for everyone"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late for no reason which ended up costing me $1500 and two days to rebook my return flight. Thanks, Alaska."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Generally clean. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wish there was more complimentary meals. Though they did offer us free cheese plate due to Christmas which was nice!"
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
Pros: "Great airline that gets you to where you need to go on time and with comfort."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and simple. Fill from the back to the front, now weird zones and scattered boarding process"
Cons: "Considering that gas prices have seriously dropped and the airline continues to charge me an extra $25 to travel with luggage, you'd think they would offer passengers more than a single micro bag of pretzels and a cup a soda as complimentary item on a four hour flight."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work well, tv had to be reset"
Pros: "Lots of room. Great crew. We left early. We arrived early."
Cons: "Food ok."
Pros: "This time within the last couple months the trip a lot better."
Cons: "Not taking over 5 hours to get to my destination."
Cons: "There was a woman with a small dog who did not have a carrier and was being difficult- at boarding and on website it should have been made clear what the regulations were regarding pets"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "The entertainment system was missing at my seat. It was also down for the entire plane. The crew missed my row for drinks."
Pros: "Comfort and food"
Cons: "The delays before entering the airplane so that we aren’t stuck"
Pros: "Staff was amazing loved every minute of flight"
Pros: "Loved the movie and tv show selections available"
Cons: "Direct TV did not work for me. Really wanted to watch the AFC championship football game but I couldnt because direct tv wasnt working."
Pros: "I boarded fast"
Cons: "flight attendant was moddy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"
Pros: "Free wine , free coffee, quick flight"
Pros: "Wi fi and the tv made the time pass quick , seats were big , flight was quick"
Pros: "The seating space was just right, and thanks for the complimentary Sprite."
Cons: "The wifi/ flyfi did not work. The directv screen kept going offline. The complementary cookies ran out"
Pros: "Good snacks, was switched to an “even more space” seat"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification, got at email with delay notification but no information that the gate was moved from 5 to 25 until I went up to ask the desk staff since my departure wasn’t showing on the screen. Very loud engine for some reason. No USB a chargers on plane is old school"
Pros: "My wife were satisfied with everything."
Cons: "No reason to say anything, we were grateful to be there."
Pros: "Normal good flight otherwise."
Cons: "Notification only 2 hrs or so before flight departure. Delayed 3hrs. Had to return rental car on time, so could not use to fill time during waiting period. Other fights to NY area already filled."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, on time and efficient. The crew was friendly and they moved quickly in the cabin so not to disturb people sleeping on such an early flight."
Cons: "Flight was way delayed. :("
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "We were delayed due to poor weather on takeoff and on landing due to airport traffic."
Cons: "Not acceptable for plane to be 100 minutes for no real reason"
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "By the time we boarded in row 8 all overhead bins were full thru row 16. Made getting off more difficult when we had to get our carryons"
Cons: "Staff, legroom bterra chips"
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The people on the flight not so much. Barking dogs and screaming babies."
Pros: "Quick service no complaints."
Cons: "Tv service was weird."
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "I like the new collaborative coffee option at the gate and the get-your-own-snacks option upon boarding."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and we arrived early with no problems. Wasn't expecting even snacks/drinks on a 45 minute flight, but they served them. Crew was even more friendly and helpful than usual."
Cons: "E-mailed me advertising a free drink on BOS-->LGA flights, but I didn't see that."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and respectful even when some passengers were rude."
Cons: "Paying for headphones."
Cons: "The boarding pass machine was broken, almost missed my flight. The customer services was rude."
Pros: "Free beer!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was excellent!"
Cons: "Onboarding crew was a bit rude and rushing everyone. Forcing people to check in bags even though there was still space in the overhead bins."
Cons: "My overhead light didn’t work. My seat mates tv didn’t work. We were in 13 A & C"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process. Flight Attendants happy to be on board with you."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 80 mins and then we had to taxi for an additional 45 mins. We were supposed to arrive at 9:40, we did not get off the flight until 11:45pm."
Pros: "Polite crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Smell in the air"
Pros: "In flight TV service, snack options and free carry-on"
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good wifi most of the flight. Usual JetBlue professionalism."
Cons: "Not JetBlue's fault but we had to wait on the runway about 45 minutes because of weather issues up north. Otherwise a great flight."
Cons: "My flight was delay more than hour it wasn't pleasing experience"
Pros: "the food options and staff"
Cons: "i reserved two seats together and when we checked in we were sitting apart."
Pros: "Overhead space"
Cons: "departure was very late same thing happen coming back they were late,but the most upsetting was that they lie insulting our inteligent."
Pros: "miss the flight, plane was at the tarmic, door was not close, supperson supervisor was in the plane but gate was close, person at the gate did not try to contect the supervisor, thats not helpful at all"
Pros: "I actually enjoy riding with JetBlue all the time. This flight would've been excellent if it weren't for the children being overly loud, thankfully I had a set of headphones. This flight had a lot of children on it. Other than that I couldn't really complain."
Cons: "Front right lav door hard to latch, headphones worked on one side only, gap in middle of lie-flat bed."
Cons: "just an old plane. still had ashtrays in it. but overall ok because arrived safely and professionalism of staff was quite commendable"
Pros: "Myself and my wife were rebooked and arrived home the same day. Albeit 7 hours late."

Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Late flight due to ground hold EWR. Two screaming kids immediately behind me."

Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."

Pros: "The food was good Flight was on time plane was clean loved the crew! Flew out with them, and returned with them... so that was nice!"
Cons: "Not knowing we were being bused to plane from Terminal Boarded early because of it, created a bit of chaos and panic My tv was broken- worked intermittently need connector for iphone ear buds - should have universal ports"
Cons: "Need vegetarian meal in first class"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable, plan wasn’t too full"
Cons: "No charging port for cellphone."
Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Pros: "The staff was efficient and kind"
Cons: "The plane was late for weather reasons and they overbooked the flight they had to offer $400 for next flight wasn’t until the next morning.. no entertainment system on plane"
Cons: "No LCD screen for entertainment."

Cons: "45 minute delay (due to airport, not airline"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "Convince of the online apps and the TSA precheck"
Cons: "The aircraft was noisy, and the seats were very uncomfortable and extremely close together.."
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: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Coffee was bad and was luke warm!! It was very cold in the cabin and then really warm."
Cons: "Delay and inoperative Sattelite TV"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "the inflight service and the quality of food was outstanding."
Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
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: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."
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."
Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"

Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Delta is focused on customer service, especially in the business class. Great airline. Love the crew attitude."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Unable to get seat assignments until check-in (overbooked); therefore, my wife and I sat in middle seats on different rows. Boarding is an exercise to continue the "caste system" between 1st class passengers and coach with the "priority boarding" line and the "general boarding" side of the turnstile...what a joke! Richard Anderson, CEO comes on the recording and tells us how great Delta is and then every Delta employee on the flight try to disprove his flowery speech. We paid $50 to pre check luggage then have to fight for a place in the overhead storage for a small backpack and a coat because of all the possessions priority passengers bring onboard. Thanks for the coke..."
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
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."
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Pros: "Everything. The entertainment was ok. I think a movie would be better than the shows"
Cons: "if I would’ve been in first :)"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger."
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Plane too cold hard to sleep, no blankets or pillows"
Cons: "late cold plane"
Pros: "Wi-Fi was adequate"
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, but it still felt cramped. The tray was crooked and I had no priority boarding."
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "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."
Cons: "Time consuming during check in. Was not allowed to do the pre check in, so arrived to airport, waited around 20 minutes to check in, including my luggage. After that, had to wait around 45 minutes to drop my suitcase. After that, process was good and efficient. Plane left on time LIMA to Miami, and then Miami to NYC."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Cons: "Boarded the plane and had to wait on the runway for almost 3 hours after being delayed at the gate. Absolutely horrible with no compensation for our time whatsoever."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
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: "Also quick and painless flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants where kind of rude."
Cons: "I paid extra money to sit in the front of the plane due to traveling with my dog... when I looked at my boarding pass I realized I was sitting in the last row of the plane ... the cabin was booked and they could not move my seat! Really upsetting and frustrating!"
Pros: "On time departure/early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"
Cons: "The crew was late arriving to the gate which delayed boarding and then the plane had an electrical problem that could not be quickly fixed so had to deplane, go to another gate and board another plane. We were an hour and a half late leaving."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
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"
Pros: "boarding was in time, and comfort."
Cons: "comfort was very good"
Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "I’m handicapped and requested wheelchair assistance when I booked flight. Not once was it ready I had to ask for it at every leg of trip, going and returning. Took morning flight home to connection and when landed was told that flight was cancelled and rebooked my on another flight which was fine but didn’t have the seat available that was originally designated and the woman at customer service didn’t care. New flight delayed 3 times and I ended up being in Newark for 9 hours and got a total of $30 in vouchers, had anyone that gives these vouchers out bought anything in an airport before? And the $30 I did get I had to beg for as well. No more united for me thanks."
Cons: "Got to airport, no gate assigned. Waiting in line for 37 mins. To have the gate staff walk away and help other customers. Than got a gate with notice of a 2 hour delay. Got to gate and got another notice with another delay. Our 8:45p flight left at 12:40am. Plus had another gate change."
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."
Cons: "Broken video monitor on my seat and window seat. Ripped and dirty pockets on all the back of the seats in the row in front of me. Just a feeling of disrepair."
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were professional, efficient and very accommodating. The pilot was also excellent. He kept us informed of the status of the flight throughout the trip."
Cons: "The plane was terrible. The seats are so close together that you cannot move. The aisle is so narrow that one person can barely down it. Forget it if you have to pass by someone. The bathroom too is so small that you cannot move in it. It’s so uncomfortable. The new boarding process is just dumb. And to make matters worse they don’t even bother to check the boarding groups when you board. I had a person in a later boarding group in front of me and they let her on anyway — so what’s the point of having boarding groups. They should just go back to boarding from the rear of the plane first - that is the most efficient and quick way to do it. The so called entertainment is a joke. There is a very small choice of movies/TV shows to watch and that’s it. The free wi-fi gets you nowhere."
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Air traffic control delay."
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Long delay in Knoxville because of atc clearance issues and there is not much to do in the terminal. Only give snacks and water would of rathered a sandwich"
Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."
Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"
Pros: "very kind crew members and flight was an hour early."
Cons: "The worst food on an airline ever...witnessed so much waste all around me. No one could eat it. Entertainment broken and sound quality awful."
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"
Pros: "Decent leg room. Wonderful to do the flight non-stop from NYC to Delhi."
Cons: "United. September 14 Newark to Delhi Premium Economy Entertainment screen didn't work for 1st hour of the flight. the movie list was mediocre at best. The screen was smeared with some substance. The list of movies on the United entertainment app is great (via internet) but connectivity on this type of flight is spotty so the traveler is forced back to the antique screen plane system. Dinner. Butter chicken or vegetable options. Food was bland and very small portions for the length of flight. The snack was delivered immediately after dinner was picked up. I did not open it. Looked like a hard roll with something on it. Style of service is abrupt, bordering on rude. Uses terminology that non-US travelers from different cultures would not understand, for instance do you want "white" coffee. Asked me if I had someone at home to pick up after me as she felt she was cleaning too much off the floor. Her comments appeared to be directed at me but it was not my trash (and even if it was, a better approach would be recommended). The flight attendant realized she had gone too far and apologized. Then complained about this "route" being difficult, with no one listening. She concluded by wishing me a good flight and saying that she hoped that she had not offended me. I assured her that she had. Breakfast was mediocre. Egg with soggy potatoes and an inedible sausage. Did not see what they were offering in the veggie dish. Staff seems tired and not culturally sensitive. There needs to be some retraining and consideration given to long haul menus and entertainment. I take this flight at least once a year. It continues to deteriorate."
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"
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: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Cons: "Southwest has much better experience."
Pros: "The flight was delayed serial times."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times."
Pros: "So I made and didn't get assaulted. So I guess it went well."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Cons: "Lots of delays, not so friendly flight attendants..."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."
Pros: "United now has small mattresses to put on your lay flat bed in business class. Very comfortable! For once they had my first choice for lunch and it was delicious."
Cons: "The seats are lay flat beds. However they are very narrow especially where the feet are resting. If you are over 5ft10 it's too short a bed. You feel that your feet are pressed together when you sleep. Also no seat level storage space. Seats are narrow and are almost impossible to sleep in resting on your side. Would suggest united try out the Emirates airline business class seats on the A380. The British Airways business class seats and New Zealand business class lay flat seats are also much nicer."
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Cons: "They turned the flight around, getting us home hours later than what was supposed to be"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Cons: "First when seated there was no room for even my purse in the overhead storage. I had to hold everything in my lap. My ticket seats were separated when I was sure I booked the seats together. The blanket given to my seat was in package but was used and very vile smelling. The flight attendant was very rude, had an attitude when I asked for a drink after I wasn't offered one. When landing and I was asleep, flight attendant hit my head to wake me up to adjust my seat to the correct position rather then in a polite way. Also luggage was not with the rest of the planes luggage and on a differnt carousel. I travel often and are use to glitches, but when cleanliness and attitude come into the picture those are things that can be controlled. I wish to no longer travel with United again."
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "It was pretty cheap"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the pilot wasn't there. I feel like this sort of thing always happens with united. When I went to ask for help about my connecting flights I was treated like I was the one inconveniencing them. And the response I got was there's nothing we can do if you miss your connecting flight the only one going out today is at 10 pm but it's completely full already. I feel like it was the worst customer service and while I realize the lady I spoke to was probably not the one responsible for the captain being Mia she could have been more kind and more helpful by 100%"
Pros: "Quick and efficient"
Cons: "Very small and hard to sleep if you are a tall human. Ended up with neck ache"
Pros: "Depart was organized and the flight arrived before the time."
Cons: "Snack is horrible even water is very difficult to get."
