Pros: "Crew. Service."
Read more about Alaska Airlines
Pros: "Crew. Service."
Pros: "Enough room in the seats / not too squished rows."
Cons: "Window shades couldn't be closed / they were stuck. Inside walls of the plane were peeling, scratched up, clogged sinks in restrooms. It was pretty grim looking all things considered."
Pros: "The flight attendant was so amazing and observant that she noticed myself and classmates all wearing our alma maters sweatshirt and gave us the loveliest a shout out!! We were headed for our college reunion and had unintentionally been on the same flight. That was so much fun!!"
Cons: "Free headphones"
Pros: "Friendly crew Free movies helped pass the time"
Pros: "Delayed flight, 4th times changing gates, airplane is too cold and no blanket offered, 5.5 flight with only biscoff and drinks offered."
Cons: "They should at least offered blanket and small meal included with the fare"
Pros: "Super comfortable seats, crew was amazing very tentative."
Pros: "Overall pleasant experience"
Pros: "The crew was very good, caring and concerned."
Cons: "I don't think anything, this was another amazing flight with Alasks"
Cons: "More plentiful food selections? Everything served had dairy which I can’t do."
Pros: "Short boarding, extra seat, arrived early"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Modernized flight, no delays, military member service"
Pros: "Service always good!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of yet."
Pros: "There was plenty of legroom, cabin crew came often for drinks, snacks and trash, power outlets easy to access (below tray table)."
Pros: "Every aspect of the trip was above our expectations, comfortable seats, delightful staff, good food and on time service."
Cons: "Sony handycam and cables were stolen out of my carry-on suitcase during TSA screening. on Sept. 29th, about 8:00 - 8:30 time frame. This was to be used for my Dad's full honors funeral service at Arlington Cemetery on Oct. 1. I had gone through Alaska Airline check in, then to TSA screening where the crime took place."
Pros: "The plane was on-time. Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were very helpful. They helped passengers get to their seats, find places for their luggage. Entertainment options were good. Bags arrived within a reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more food options or at least stock a few more of the ones they have. The fruit and cheese tray sells out early making it a long flight without real food. I don’t consider chips and cookies lunch food."
Pros: "One beverage cart pass during a very long flight. No food available unless preordered. Not even the obligatory mini pretzels."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The Red system makes the flight much easier. It has entertainment, you can order your food and keep track of the flight stats"
Cons: "The plane had problems delaying the flight by 3hrs. Alaska really should change how they load the plane. After all the special people (first class, mvps, etc.) then passengers without carryons then people with carryons. This would speed up the process and keep people from getting stuck behind people who are messing with their bags."
Pros: "Room on the plane so I could spread out a bit-not filled in my room. Free Gogo WiFi ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The new TV program choices. I miss the Direct TV live program choices. It made the flights go so much faster! The few episode choices was a huge disappointment. This was one of the things that made Virgin America flights special!"
Pros: "Crew were attentive and professional but very friendly and appeared to genuinely enjoy interacting with passenger - something you don’t always see on airlines."
Cons: "Seats are a little worn but honestly, we boarded a flight that was half empty and each had a row to ourselves so really have nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I have been flying for many years, and must admit that the flight cabin crew was incredible. Professional, attentive and on their feet for 95 % of the time. Thank you"
Pros: "Drinks were complimentary once the flight finally got underway. The staff were lovely despite being exhausted and frustrated."
Cons: "The flight was turned back due to an officer’s medical concern. The individual was standing in the gangway laughing and looking healthy while the passengers had to debark the plane and wait for 2 more hours before resuming the flight to Hawaii. When we arrived the majority of shops were closed; it was 7 hours late. Alaska offered a $200 voucher to make up for this."
Pros: "Customer service both on the phone and in person wede professional, friendly, and accommodating. They went out of their way to make our trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I, honestly, have no complaints about this flight."
Pros: "I would like to possibly see some better food options maybe for people who can not consume dairy. With the many different cheese platters, I was very uninterested. I had an early flight and thought I'd be able to eat something with a sort of substance. I was quite disappointed, I guess I'll have to be the annoying customer who brings chipotle on the plane next time."
Pros: "Great food. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Rough ride."
Pros: "The service the last time I called"
Pros: "The flight to Maui was great. The crew was nice and friendly. I only wish they could have helped with the weather once I got there!"
Pros: "Travel time, good flt crew and flt."
Cons: "Seats were to short"
Pros: "Worth it"
Cons: "good vacation experience with Alaska Airlines"
Pros: "She was cute, really acted like she liked her job! Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "I wanted a candy bar instead of the mai tai"
Pros: "Loved how smooth it ran,such a professional crew,really made the time pleasant.i really wish all my flying times could be like this one,I would highly recommend this airline to all my friends,family and work partners,the crew was well verse in key Hawaiian words and very polite on departure."
Cons: "I think it would be to difficult to try and come up with anything,maybe I could say that the chicken was a little over cooked but that's it"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Cheap seats, food, everything we mediocre..."
Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, and the flight on the way home was not overbooked, which was lovely!"
Cons: "One flight attendant told me not to pack my bag so much if I wanted to take it on the plane, and I had to check it at the gate. Once on board, there were bigger suitcases than mine on board. I was happy to do what they said, but it would be nice if they were more consistent about the bag sizes. I didn't have this problem on the way back to Seattle though."
Pros: "leg room on premier seats. Entertainment had big variety and high quality."
Cons: "No food on 5 hour flight unless you pay"
Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."
Pros: "Nice crew and yum cheese plate"
Cons: "Late boarding and late arrival."
Cons: "Ok, crew was ok, we arrived an hour early. Everything else was terrible to bad. No food in 6 hr flight?! Given a single tiny bite sized cookie, and only 2 small glasses of water, soda or juice. I'm a tall size 0, who still found the seats uncomfortably tight. WIFI was not included. We had to pay & pre load their app before the flight. Costumer service gets 2 out of 5 rating, giving 1 for showing up 2 for being dolled up"
Pros: "efficient boarding"
Cons: "not readily providing pens to fill out declaration forms. felt pressure to ask someone else for a pen to fill out form. It is airline requirement so it shouldn't be passenger's responsibility to find a pen. if a problem for airlines then they should takecare of the requirement at gate when there is time and they could easily provide the pens."
Cons: "The whole boarding process by the time my group was boarded there was no overhead bin space for either my wife's or mine one carry on piece. The flight amendments did nothing to try and help me find room for any of them even though there were coats backpacks and purses filling the overhead bins. So we had to ride with both our carryon jammed under our seats and no legroom for 5 plus hours. Miserable never again!"
Pros: "Our ticket handler at Alaska Airlines ( Sep 21- SMF Airport) was the most helpful and patient person we have ever encountered! The tickets we had purchased through Kayak were charged but not booked. Juan did everything in his power to get us on that flight. And when the kayak company failed to book in time Juan got us on the next available flight, being to sure to find us the best price and a direct flight, versus the one we had booked earlier. Over all Alaska Airlines will be the standard my future experiences will be based off of if I am unable to travel through them"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Charging for food is lame."
Pros: "noting they suck"
Cons: "they where late taking off because one of there stewardess was late one hour ....HORRIBLE SERVICE....."
Pros: "The flight attendants were light hearted, engaging, and very funny"
Cons: "Everything was good. Had the extra legroom which made it very comfortable on the long flight"
Pros: "Great flight with Alaskan Airlines as always."
Cons: "No free movies or any other free forms of entertainment despite a long cross country flight. One of the male crew members - don't know his name - was rather rude and would only allow me to have one cup of water and no coffee despite my having purchased a cheese platter."

Boarding was fast and efficient. Best I’ve seen.

Pleasant staff, easy checking in. No problems

The plane was so late, I missed a family dinner.

My flight was changed without notifying me. I used the code for the 830 flight I had scheduled and was surprised when a boarding time of 7:05 was present. Called and told that there were issues and there were no seats left on the 830 flight even though I had a seat assignment. I should have been notified when this change was made.

I was earlier than expected, so they got me on the earlier flight!

I was told the boarding gate was changed and I had to run across the airport to get to the new gate. Then the flight had a delay because it was full and they tried to convince people to change flight. After I board the aircraft, it was further delayed for another 2 hours with some strange excuses (no pull back crew available?)

Everything went smoothly I cannot think of anything to improve at the moment

There were 3 travelers in my party, including myself. I attempted to do the check in via the app and website the day prior to our flight. I kept receiving a message of error and to contact via a one 800 phone number, which I did, with no success. I spoke to a couple different representatives, neither of which could figure out how to deal with the error, and told me to take care of it when we arrived at the airport the next day. Upon arrival I could check in two members of my party but not myself at the kiosk. There was an extremely long line for talking with a counter agent. Many people in line were actually purchasing tickets, combined with others who were trying to check in. We were quite concerned that we might miss our flight. The line was not moving, moved extremely slowly. There was a Hawaiian airline representative floating around trying to encourage people to move to the international line, mainly because there was much confusion about where people were supposed to get into line. When I presented my issue to her, she pretty much ignored me, said thank you and walked away. I was confused as to whether she was going to help me or not. It was very strange. So we got in the long line, got to the counter, and the agent told me my name was incorrectly put into the system as my name is a hyphenated last name. I quickly pulled up the email confirmation where my name was actually correct at purchase. After a very long process, she tells me it was their error, the person I spoke to on the phone the day prior made the mistake. However the entire time we were dealing with this at the counter, we were made to feel like we had made a mistake, and I might not be able to fly. To add insult to injury, I was ignored, and treated as if our business didn’t matter to them. Not a good experience.

It

Overall it was fantastic. Would have been even better of the crew had come down the aisle again to offer water. And to give a warning announcement when they were closing the drinks upon arrival.

Bought tickets 2 1/2 months before flight and could not chose seats. Tried to check in 24 hours prior but got "error, see gate agent". Tried again and showed only one passenger had a seat assignment, other passenger had to see a gate agent for seat assignment. Went to assigned gate and agent said he is not assigned to my flight, wait for next flight's agents. While waiting, I walked around and saw a customer service kiosk. Customer Service Agent, Yoko was very attentive and helpful. She said we had seats assigned to us. Seats were in the last row next to flight attendants. Apparently on flight attendant was not working, flying "dead head". The two flight attendants were talking, and reminiscing throughout the whole flight. Every Hawaiian Airlines worker, except to Yoko, could have been more helpful, thoughtful, and more attentive to senior citizens.

Boarding was a mess. Everyone was in zone 4.

Pros: "The crew was ok the seats were not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Always a good ride."

Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"

Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."

Cons: "Flight delayed and bot enough overhead space."
Cons: "Tecnical problems dellay no good american arlines i dont recomended"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."

Cons: "X"

Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service."
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"

Pros: "On time, good service."

Cons: "Lost my luggage and flight delayed"
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
Pros: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"
Cons: "planes were really old and uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all, the seats are ridiculously small and not fit for a grown up. One of the worst flights ever for sure"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "As I boarded the plane, they were trying to get me to check my carry on item when my bag fit the dimensions. It clearly fit in the luggage sizer, but the representative was quick to want to take my bag."
Cons: "My flight was changed to later time; however I didn't receive any notification. Flight was later and didn't get seat I requested on original flight."

Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "A little crowded"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag. Brought only a carry on to avoid baggage claim, but was forced to check it anyway. There is NO organization to the boarding process, so in the free-for-all at boarding, people in any boarding group are let through with WAY MORE than 1 carry on and 1 personal item, leaving no room for my bag and I was in group 2 (not sure how many groups there are). Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."
Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Quick, efficient flight"
Cons: "Packed light with no toiletries in our carry on to avoid having to go to baggage claim. They announced anyone in groups 3 or 4 had to check their bags. We checked our bag, boarded the plane, and there was PLENTY of overhead space. Wasted 35 minutes at baggage claim."
Cons: "We were never offered our drink or snack. Then the male attendant called my wife "sir" when asking her to put up the tray table"
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Everything could be better. From the boarding process to the on board service."
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "6 hours of delay"
Pros: "Good flight, decent crew. Food was okay."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "The staff and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Legroom was far too tight, by at least an inch. Entertainment such as recent movies, available on other airlines for free, was available only for pay."
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."
Pros: "Crew was responsive to an engine circuit breaker issue while taxiing and returned to the gate to have it addressed. Took off two hours late, but secure in the knowledge that the problem was not a flight safety issue. Kudos to the crew."
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "We bought this on swiss air with the terms that included free skis. When we arrived at the airport, Unites airlines informed us that skis would be $200 to check. A pretty awful surprise to start our vacation. Perhaps it should be made more clear that the operating airline’s fees with predominant - not the fees we originally agreed to at purchase. United’s planes are awfully old and small."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."
Pros: "All of it was good."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "2 short a trip to serve food"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "It was hot...the whole flight"
Cons: "Hot hot hot"
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Greenville at 6:41 pm, we never arrived until after 11 am."
Cons: "- The flight out of IAD was overbooked and left late. - My hand luggage was taken from me with promise of delivery at final destination - Staff in EWR was unhelpful and just short of rude - My luggage did not make the connection at EWR - There was no United staff in PoS to take my report of lost luggage -"
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."
Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold. Even with numerous empty seats I was assigned a seat in the last row next to the laboratory and not permitted to change. Flight attendant had a poor attitude and was generally not helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My husband, sister, brother-in-law and myself flew into STL. We thought we had booked the same flight but when we got there found out our departure flight was different. We asked about moving them to our floght but it was over booked so we asked if we could move to there flight. They had 15 open seats. They told us no. There would be a charge of 500 dollars if we wanted to change. We decided to just fly out first and meet them there. We stood by the counter to speak about meeting. As we did we could hear them telling the next couple that they would have to move to the later flight. It was a huge problem for them as they would miss there connection. We then offered again to take the later flight so they could take our place on the over booked flight and make there connection. They where unwilling. Then we get on the flight and the plane was nasty and dirty. We put out tray table down and there was drink and dirt all over it. When asked if they could be cleaned we got an attitude. They never came back to do it. Luckily I had a wet wipe to do it. The plan smelled like urine. Same was true for our return flight. The plane was very old and not taken care of. This is not the first problem is we have had with United. We will not be flying with them any longer."
