Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Twice we sat on the ramp waiting for a gate agent to open the gate (for more than 15 minutes). They cancelled my flight and rescheduled me on an earlier one then waiting for the gate on arrival meant that they were calling me on the PA to report to the next gate when we got off of the first plane. The wifi entertainment glitched out every time the flight crew made an announcement. There was no food on either flight and only four beverage choices on a 1 hour flight. The lines were crazy long at the ticket counter in PDX (where I went to try to sort out my cancelled flight). The text assistance first said wait 30-35 minutes and then, after 20 minutes or so said that it was going to close my chat due to inactivity (but no one had responded yet, of course there was no activity). Overall, it was a very lousy experience. Pre-pandemic Alaska was usually a pleasure to fly, post-pandemic Alaska was excruciating at every turn. Quite a disappointment."

Pros: "The crew was amazing but I have to say the seats were very tiny and very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The crew was amazing but I have to say the seats were very tiny and very uncomfortable.I guess just start with you would have to give a little bit more room on your seats the seats itself and of course around the seats so we can at least be able to stretch our legs and our backs"

Pros: "On time, early, even"

Pros: "Nice service deck people and flyt crew. Good clean cabin and seats."

Pros: "Everyone pleasant"
Cons: "No GFSnack or almonds"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "I’m tired of every airline nickel and diming flyers to death with fees for checking bags, extra inches for reasonable leg room, boarding options, etc."

Pros: "Great help at the front desk at the boarding atea"
Cons: "Cramped seating"

Cons: "The flight attendants passed my row and didn’t offer drinks. When I asked 10 minutes later the FA later they said they were done with beverage service. Also I specifically picked a seat in the last row when i bought my ticket. When i got to the gate the agent took my ticket and crossed off the seat I chose online. She wrote in seat 17B because they gave me seat away without asking me."

Pros: "Clean airplane. Seats are leather which I prefer to fabric ones. I like the adjustable head rest."
Cons: "Not crazy about having to take the shuttle to airport after deplaning."

Pros: "The only perk was the complementary drink while flying."
Cons: "Basically everything. This was for a connecting flight. We had to go through customs and security twice at the Portland airport because the employees gave us wrong information. They offered us a shuttle to our gate since we were running late, and then the shuttle dropped us off on the completely opposite end of the airport. We literally had to sprint across the airport with 15 minutes until our plane left, and go through security our second time where the employees were rude and not even slightly helpful. While on the plane the crew was less than friendly and short with passengers. After we landed, someone from our group was also missing their bag and was informed it was left behind in Oregon and wasn't even loaded onto the plane. Seriously the worst airport, worst crew, and worst flying experience I've ever had."

Pros: "It was comfortable clean pleasant and well priced"
Cons: "noise of the engines but you can't fly with out them"

Pros: "The chardany was wonderful. Also easy boarding process."

Pros: "Great crew and good service"
Cons: "Flight was late. Seats were small and cramped. At LAX, had to wait on board 20 minutes for bus to immigration. Then had to stand on bus for 15 minutes while drivers chatted outside. Immigration was a nightmare at LAX. Never again."

Pros: "Crew onboard was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The plane was late, then it was broken. The delay was a moving target. Finally after an hour a new plane was available. The plane itself was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "My carry on was simply put underneath with the checked baggage. Then it was easily ready for me to grab for the next flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "6 hour delay with no compensation"

Pros: "The crew was concerned a late arrival in SLC would inconvenience some passengers. They requested several times that others make way"

Pros: "Crew was humourous and friendly"
Cons: "Boarding area was very congested with several other flights leaving within minutes of our flight."

Pros: "Love flying w you guys!"
Cons: "Completely satisfied"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Person who checked my bag in our wrong sticker on bag and flew it to another place. Was very disappointed. Did not have my bag and had Togo out late at night and buy things I needed. Got my bag later the next day. Very stressful for me and couldn't afford to buy new stuff but had to."

Pros: "Leaving early is nice, unless you are a ticketed passenger left waving at the pilot as they back away from the gate 11 minutes early."
Cons: "This 6:00 am flight consistently leaves the gate more than 10 minutes early. The ticket counter shuts down promptly (and in some cases even earlier) 40 minutes prior to departure. If you don't have your boarding pass in hand, you are out of luck even though the ground crew is about 10 feet from you and can see you through the glass. The airport clocks at Lewiston airport are all 3 minutes slow, except for the clocks in the TSA area which are all 5 minutes fast. Reported to the airline and to the Airport manager, Robin Turner, who was extremely condescending and rude to our party, even though we were trying to pass on information that the Airline employees had complained about the issue for months."

Pros: "No problems, got me on an earlier flight"

Pros: "Biscotti"
Cons: "Rough landing Limited beverage selection"

Pros: "I appreciated the boarding order, the large overhead space for carryons, the ample leg room, the quietness of the engines, & the friendliness of the staff."

Cons: "Too crowded!!"

Pros: "You are asking for a review while I am still waiting for the plane that is an hour and a half late. Hard to give a positive review."

Pros: "Best cheeseburger ever. Who would have thought..."
Cons: "The length of the flight. Maybe shorten it to less than 2 hours... >; ^) Ok... Really the only complaint was I was unaware of the non-reclining seats in front of the emergency row when booking the flight in. If the website notifies your when picking seats, it is very inconspicuous."

Pros: "When the customs process was too slow for our connection time, the Alaska rep met us and moved us to a later flight without us even having to ask!!!!"

Pros: "0"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "On time, no worries"

Pros: "The complimentary beer and wine was a very nice option. The crew was very polit"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly, from check-in to the flight attendants. Great service."
Cons: "Planes are always cold, but usually (other) airlines provide free blankets and/or pillows. I asked, but there were no blankets. Also, some rows didn't have windows! Not sure if this is for safety reasons, but it was not a Emergency row...Very odd, and when picking seats ahead of time, one wouldn't know! Imagine picking a window seat for the view and only to realize there isn't one."

"My luggage was left behind from the initial destination due a weight limitation. I have no idea when I will get my items but this is a huge disappointment. Luckily, I didn't have anything urgent in that bag. I wish they were clear with passengers before the flight took off."

Pros: "Delta is great and made everything easy and comfortable. Loved having the middle seat open. Flight attendants did a wonderful job! This is a great nonstop flight!"
Cons: "Do not like the high baggage fees!"

Pros: "Quick Boarding Awesome staff"

Cons: "Pay close attention when boarding in Cabo as they board multiple flights out of the same gate and it could be easy to get on the wrong bus."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Seats, leg space, noise. The seats in coach were too close together and the entertainment system was slow and seemed outdated."

Pros: "That there were TVs on the seats to watch and it was quick boarding"

Pros: "Nice suites though they feel a little cramped. Good for privacy"
Cons: "lounge in PEK was under renovation, temp lounge was not very nice"

Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Cons: "Upgraded to comfort, I’ve never sat in a better seat. The crew was all very polite, informative and friendly. Quick and easy flight. Thank you!!"

Cons: "All was good"

Cons: "The pplane was two hours late to depart due to technical issues."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "SeAts"

Pros: "First time back in about 15 years and what an improvement. Customer service is important to Delta and it shows."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work for me at first."

Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."

Cons: "Dripped on!!!!!!"

Cons: "There was anything I didn’t like about the flight, everything was great!"

Cons: "On time, free upgrade."

Cons: "Didn't leave on time."

Pros: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."

Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"

Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"

Cons: "We were delayed due to the air conditioning not working. So, it was a tad warm in the cabin. It would've been nice to have someone coming around with water making our delay a little more comfortable."

Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Pros: "On Time"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"

Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"

Cons: "Never again!"

Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "The tv in the back of every seat makes any seat a good seat."

Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."

Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"

Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."

"Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines."

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."

Pros: "The crew was fine and was thankful they found a way to get back to Detroit (but, it required a stop in Dallas and an overnight in Chicago)"
Cons: "There was no social distancing or enforcement for wearing masks. I saw no sanitizing on any of the three flights I had to take to get to Detroit. of the four airports only the one in Guadalajara asked any health questions and could be seen sanitizing the waiting room and eliminating seats to keep spacing."

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Offer some type of meal for cross country domestic"

Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"

Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."

Pros: "The plane didn’t crash"
Cons: "The air smelled like a dirty diaper, seats are over priced for the very little improvement over basic economy"

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and personable. Boarding and seating went smoothly. The flights all departed and landed on time. The cookies were tasty."
Cons: "The seats are pretty small, not much leg or elbow room. The coffee could have tasted better."

Cons: "The WiFi I was terrible other than that great flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "My seatbelt was installed incorrectly."

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Cons: "The whole flight from Philadelphia to Rome was on American Airlines, not British Air. This was confusing at first and made it difficult to know what airline desk I needed to check into, but once that was clear it all went smoothly. The dinner was mediocre and the breakfast terrible."

Pros: "Snack service was the quickest I have seen in a while.Very smooth landing."

Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."

Pros: "Entertainment System loaded with movies Optional WIFI at cost Aisle seat Air quality / temp control was comfortable Passport control through JFK was straight forward and short for USA citizens"
Cons: "Food: Better to just serve a fresh panini than to go through hassle of heated mystery meal... Seat Assignment: I went to Malpensa airport the night before to assign seat, but there was no American Airlines gate agent nor partner airline that could help me...Even though this was AA199 purchased through British Airways. The B.A. check in said that they couldn't help"

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Pros: "The entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative. They were very helpful. The"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. They were hard and so narrow I had to sit crooked in the seat to keep from getting banged into by the service carts and every person going by to the bathrooms. I'm not tiny, but I'm not huge either, it was just overcrowded. It was also very hot in the airplane the entire way from Phoenix to Spokane. My husband, who is always cold, was even hot."

Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Cons: "Food could have been better. Plane was 1/2 full. WiFi was not giving all the movies. Only 6 or 7 to choose from."

Pros: "Real nice people at check in and flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "We liked the effiency and politeness of the staff. We enjoyed the movies, the food was better than normal."
Cons: "We were very unhappy at having to pay extra for our seats after we had booked the airfare. Especially on the way to Paris when there were so many extra available seats! I counted 50 available seats!"

Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Pros: "The direct flight, less time"
Cons: "The seats aren't comfortable on any flight, the was tv only, no movies, snack aren't healthy for someone with food sensitivities"

Pros: "The only good thing about the flight is that it was nonstop."
Cons: "This four-hour flight had no movie and no seatback entertainment system. It didn't even offer SiriusXM to listen to. How old exactly was this plane?!"

Pros: "left early and arrived early. cabin staff was friendly"

Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"

Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems. Had to check my carry on due to lack of space but my bag arrived quickly at my destination so this was not a big deal."
Cons: "Boarding is always a free for all. Even though passengers are called in groups no one listens and the boarding process never seems very efficient."

Pros: "crew was good"

Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."

Cons: "Boarded 3 timres and flight delayed 5 hours"

Pros: "Why put a 6ft plus 200lb person between two smaller strangers. By far the worst part"

Cons: "Super small and crowded flight, no safe distance whatsoever. A particular older flight attendant was cranky."

Cons: "Way too crowded on the plane"

Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"

Pros: "Quick boarding, no delays."
Cons: "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."

Pros: "Leg room was good in economy plus but no entertainment. Flight ran on time though."
Cons: "WiFi was broken and only refreshments offered! No meals for purchase only snack boxes that were horrible."

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."

Pros: "made it home safe"
Cons: "Boarding protocol. we were traveling together and were placed on opposite ends of the aircraft. very cramped seats. would prefer not to fly them again."

Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

Pros: "No problems and the crew was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment. I like when the planes have the TV's so you can watch."

Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."

Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptionally great! Gave out free drinks and snacks for no reason."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."

Cons: "I was very cold!"

Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "IF A PASSENGER CANT FIT IN ONE SEAT MAKE THEM BUY A SECOND. I SPENT 2 HOURS WITH SHREK SITTING ON TOP OF ME"

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Our departure was delayed by a pump problem of some kind. Then the pilot aborted a takeoff because of another error. Needless to say, we were a bit nervous."

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "The flight was quick and painless"
Cons: "Yeah, it was a bit frustrating trying to rush and hustle from gate to gate with how many times they changed the location!!"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "Delays seem to be frequent with united and the staff is always in a bad mood. Will not fly again with them, I flew one leg on a different airline so I wouldn't miss my international connection as they wanted to delay 6 hours!!!"

Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."

Cons: "Didn't happen"

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"

Pros: "It was Great Thank you"

Pros: "There was nothing good to like about this leg of my trip."
Cons: "I paid for first class and It was the worst flight I have ever been on, sat in the plane at the gate for over an hour with a huge women that was brought up to1st class from economy, she smelled, she was a lush. There was a child that did not quit crying the entire flight, I could not get off the plane fast enough, there was nothing1st class about the flight, we needed fuel after we boarded, then it was a cargo issue,and then it was airport, we should not have been on the plane until the plane was ready for flight.very poor planning you should be embarrassed about the flight."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
