Quiet and able to sleep.

Pros: "Great crew with a excellent personalities, nice clean plane, and just great service all around!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"
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: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great!! On time departure, great crew!! Bravo!!"
Pros: "It was on time."

Pros: "great staff and service"
Cons: "Nothing, all good"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "There were no in seat screens for entertainment."
Pros: "Awesome !"
Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."
Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."
Pros: "Really appreciated the staff at the ticket counter!"
Pros: "way more comfy seats than United or American"
Cons: "No movies or screens"
Pros: "The available movies and TV shows via wifi"
Cons: "Bathroom paper products"
Pros: "Affordable straight shot"
Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane, was wearing a winter coat scarf and mittens and was still freezing. Also, I paid for internet that didn't even work, I'm pretty pissed about that. I'll be sticking to Delta until you figure out your amenities."
Pros: "Great pilot, made up for delays caused by gate crew."
Pros: "The room, it was clean, great staff"
Pros: "Very good flight and great price."
Pros: "It was on time from Detroit to Portland."
Cons: "They broke my bag. The flight attendants were less than friendly, not much for food or drinks when the flight was almost 5 hours."
Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "no complaints!"
Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"
Pros: "I love the ability to stream movies on your own devices."
Cons: "The movies would 'skip' missing whole scenes at times."
Pros: "Eveything in the plane looked fantastic. But still a tight fit. Drinks and food were offered often and the employees retrieved the garbage prompty. Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit. (It took forever"
Cons: "They couldn't land in Ketchikan due to fog so they flew up to Sitka and got back 3 hours later, missed my connection in Seattle and spent the night at the airport, the I got charged 50 dollars for switching my tickets, are you kidding me, Alaska airlines sucks big time"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Dirty window"
Pros: "That I can charge my phone on the flight. Loved the leg room and really enjoyed the flight attendants. The pilot was really funny and he kept us in the loop"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."
Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."
Pros: "Plane was late to the terminal. Crew got it turned over, boarded, and off the ground in a very small amount of time."
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment despite booking the tickets months ahead of time, and checking in 24 hours before the flight. The plane was already mostly boarded by the time I was finally assigned a seat."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"
Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "While traveling recently with Alaska Airlines, my traveling partner and I were offered seats in the exit row, by the lady who checks your boarding pass at the gate. We gladly excepted the roomier seating. We were issued new boarding passes, and made our way to our seats. Once we settled in, a flight attendant asked to see my boarding pass. She looked at it and said, "Yep Amber so-and-so, seat 17B." Apparently, the airline had combined 2 flights, so people were all crammed into a new tighter space. There was even a bumped "first class" customer all squabbling over the seats. My traveling partner and I, eventually just asked them to please give us our old seats back. Finally, we were seated in our original seats. We never asked to be moved in the first place, it was offered to us. The whole thing was humiliating, and unnecessary."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."
Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."
Pros: "It was decent"
Pros: "fast and efficient boarding process, with plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row, next to the bathrooms. Since they did 4 in-flight beverages during the 5 hr flight, people kept getting stuck by the bathroom unable to get back to their seats. This seemed like an excessive amount of beverage services (contributed towards people needing to use the bathroom so much) and contributed to a bunch of people covering over my seat for most of the flight."
Pros: "We were very satisfied overall."
Cons: "To cramped for the tall"
Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Need free movies"
Pros: "I loved the humor of the hostess. I was originally booked on a later flight but the kind and helpful staff got me a earlier flight that got me home much sooner"
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin attendants. Especially Irene."
Cons: "Food was poor. I would prefer a good piece of cheese or fruit."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "Crew not so much!"
Cons: "A bit friendlier ...had no ice??"
Cons: "On board entertainment was inop, making for a long (4) hours flight."
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Pros: "Safe and fast journey."
Cons: "Vegan options for everything."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Enjoy flying with Delta, crew was great."
Cons: "disappointed they didn't have a few more snacks available."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"
Cons: "I’m tired of Delta gate agents “requiring” those in Main cabin 3 gate checking bags!! Both legs of the trip it came to a point they said it’s mandatory to gate check all remaining bags. We get on board and there’s plenty of overhead space. Even a flight attendant mentioned how empty the bins were!"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"
Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"
Cons: "I did not like that they would not assign me a seat because the flight appeared to be oversold. Finally I was allowed to board (and it was a good seat location but the seat back was locked in the upright position and I wanted to knap)"
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent. Friendly, helpful, efficient"
Cons: "Having to wait till almost boarding time to have seat assignment . If the ticket was confirmed already st the time of purchase why make people wait until the last minute for a seat???"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Even though I was disappointed by not being able to get the boarding passes from Delta for Aeromexico’s connecting flight to Bogota, I had an agent greet me after customs in Mexico to issue the boarding pass so I could use the transfer flight line. Excellent service throughout the entire trip."
Cons: "Confusion over my boarding pass at the Delta terminal in Detroit."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Cons: "Layover"
Cons: "Hurricane Irma, I was lucky enough to get a refund do to the natural disaster."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "The crew were incredibly friendly. The copilot helped me gate-check my bag before he boarded when the bag didn't fit into the overhead bin."
Pros: "Flight was quick, Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was older with no power connections"
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "Very fast boarding process."
Cons: "Once boarded we sat at the gate for probably 15-20 minutes with no explanation but different crew members were getting on and off. Plane was very hot the entire time. No airflow on such a small plane made it a very uncomfortable flight. Stewardess was impossible to understand and could barely make it through the required announcements. What words you could make out, she could barely pronounce them. Stewardess also served many people incorrectly."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"

Plane EXTREMELY CLEAN. STAFF FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT

Cons: "Nice"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Pros: "The snacks."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever been on. Delayed 7 hours. Made it to deicing pad only to be told we needed to turn back to the gate due to technical issues. Kept being told 15 more minutes until departure."
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Pros: "Nothing I travel with service animal had to sit in my lap as plane is so small people are packed in like sardines"
Cons: "This is my 3rd time on this same flight and the last two times have been miserable due to plane being small and flight full there is no room to move your legs and my service animal is so stressed from not being able to move for a 5 hour flight that it's become unimaginable to fly this trip again on this carrier"
Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"
Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."
Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to family illness. And I guess that is not acceptable to United Airlines for a refund or reschedule without a fee that I could actually buy a new ticket for the cost of their fee. So I am losing out $578.00 Not happy."
Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."
Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected. The flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes due to air control in Newark."
Pros: "Comfy seats and a smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited to taxi for almost an hour."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."
Pros: "Safe flight. Short."
Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."
Pros: "Smooth and friendly efficient crew."
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Almost didn't get a seat."
Pros: "It's annoying that you pay for seat upgrades and they stick ya in group5 boarding. It's just reminds people that they want to charge you for every little thing they can these days!"
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: "They changed my flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but they did put me on an empty flight leaving earlier but never switched my luggage to the new flight"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"
Pros: "Smooth flights"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. Staff seemed uninterested in passengers. Not compassionate."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"
Cons: "More leg room and on time!"
Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."
Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "On point"
Cons: "Everything on point"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Notthing"
Pros: "NOTHING!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "Nothing."
