Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding was a little messy."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Seats and leg room keep getting smaller"

Pros: "Phenomenal free entertainment options including free Wi-Fi"

Cons: "No problems at all but flight was rerouted to San Jose"

Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPad to rent or on seat tv screen"

Pros: "Awesome staff and plane. I Miss virgin!! well done to Alaska for keeping the spirit alive."

Cons: "No food, just snacks."

Pros: "Professional service."
Cons: "No xfiles"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, patient, and helpful."

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was my sixth or seventh flight in 14 days and was a little stressed watching the crew try to get everybody’s bag into the new container which was really small. The The container was to check the size of all carry-on luggage. They were letting people go but telling them in the future that they have to check their luggage at the gate. Which would mean most people would be paying for extra luggage. Just think that is a bad idea. In addition this flight wasn’t even halfway full so there was plenty of room anyway. I was lucky they didn’t ask me about my backpack when I got there.. Otherwise a beautiful Evening flight was a great into my trip."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "The only downside was the plane had no food and the announcement wasn’t made until we were already boarding (they didn’t know either - not their fault). I was expecting lunch since I was in first class, but the crew did as well as they could to provide us with snacks."

Cons: "Our flight was changed to a later time. I selected new seTs but when we check in our seats had been changed and we were not sitting together. The internet was difficult to navigate For more than just my husband and myself"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours They changed our gate with no explanation My chair did no work They do not give any complimentary snack or offer head phone"

Pros: "Getting my bags quick was definitely the highlight f the trip"

Cons: "The online entertainment didn’t reload"

Cons: "Late leaving"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."

Pros: "Consistently beat the “your bags at luggage claim within 20 minutes of arrival” goal. Bravo Alaska"

Pros: "I like that you can take 2 carry-on for free. So many other airlines restrict and/or charge."
Cons: "Airflow wasn't sufficient. Had a very long wait on tarmac for our gate to free up."

Pros: "Overall I would say I was pretty impressed with Alaska, their crew and their service. I would say that the part I most enjoyed about your flight services was the gogo inflight internet. On my iPhone 6 it worked perfectly and i happily enjoyed multiple free movies on my flight. My wife did experience some troubles connecting with her LG 6. Hopefully as you go along you will continue to work to get better support for all phone types."
Cons: "I think mostly it is because the world has become so allergy sensitive that these things must be avoided at all cost, but I'd say my least favorite part about the flight was the inflight "snack" service. I don't know where these biscotts came from, but I miss the old days of peanuts and pretzels. I will commend you that the drink cart came around 2 times during our flight. I think that is great. But the drink cart was definitely missing Dr. Pepper."

Cons: "The Christmas music played on the plane while sitting at the gate was awful. I felt like I was in a torture chamber being subjected to disorienting noise. Actual flight was totally fine."

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines upgraded my seat to first class. Everything was on time and went very well"

Pros: "Courteous crew & good take off/landing job of pilot, courteous & great crew."

Pros: "The people who work for Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."

Pros: "Quick service, great views out the window."
Cons: "Stingy with the wine."

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"

Cons: "Policy of not allowing check in within 40 minutes of flying flight. This policy maybe Makes sense in LAX Or chicago but not in tiny airports like fresno. I had already checked in online but becAuse of a glitch couldnt access it. I went to customer service desk and Asked for a hard copy boarding pass but Alaska Would not help me , it was Too late. So I waited for 38 minutes, watching an empty TSA line and then listened as my flight pre-boarded, , boarded and took Off without me. Then I had to buy an American airlines Ticket to reach san diego via LAX 5 hours Later. Alaska was a big let down this time."

Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"

Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"

Pros: "I leg room with the new seats. Boarded front and rear simultaneously that cut overall boarding time considerably. Front boarded through the usual door and rear boarded out to the tarmac and up the stairs to the rear door!"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. ..."
Cons: "I gave up my seat for a family to sit all together and attendant at the counter said that I would get an email & money.... So far have not received anything."

Pros: "The whole experience was great,very easy No stress"

Pros: "Crew was fine and great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we had to sit on the runway after boarding for about 45 minutes before takeoff. Arrived to LA over 1.5 hours late."

Cons: "Delay boarding"

Pros: "I've always had a good experience with Alaska Air"

Pros: "Was okay"

Pros: "Wonderful staff, roomy seats for a 6'4" guy. Other airlines cramp my style (legs, knees)"

Pros: "We didn't miss our connection"

Pros: "Leg room in economy. Cheerfulness and thoughtfulness of flight crew. Check-in fast."
Cons: "I was surprised at turboprop!"

Cons: "I had a hard time logging onto the wi-fi. It was my first time flying Alaska Airlines, I don't know if I needed an account or if the wi-fi was complimentary, would have been nice if the flight crew announced the amenities prior to take off."

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Paid for particular seat within 2-3 rows of back galley as unaccompanied minor for my son. For his comfort, he chose an aisle seat. Flight attendants onboard moved him to farthest back row in window seat and he was not able to get out to use the lavatory easily."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delta’s boarding process is based on how much you paid for ticket/loyalty. It would be better for everyone if seating was done in a way that window people were seated first, then aisle."

Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."

Pros: "good service"

Pros: "The flight attendees were nice and attentive. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "The boarding crew was less than pleasant and had an attitude. They changed my assigned seat and when I asked why, they rushed me to board offering no explanation except “your seat is no longer available”."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Don’t change my chosen seat that I paid for as I am entering the plane without my knowledge and acceptance"

Pros: "The gate agent in Medford for delta was awesome"

Pros: "Crew was nice and took care of us. We respected them and got it right back."
Cons: "It was no fault of the airline, but we got his with some weather delays which dampered our very long trip. Also, the leg room on the flight from Detroit to PDX was very small, we got lucky that we only had two people for our row of three seats. Let us stretch some."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "WiFi on board."

Pros: "i likes that drinks were free"
Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Pros: "Delta - best airline"
Cons: "Airbus - entertainment systems never work."

Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."

Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."

Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."

Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Cons: "Nada"

Cons: "Flight was delayed longer than the actual flight time. Smallest plane I have ever been in in my life."

Pros: "The flight crew was so polite and willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be looked at. Maybe creating better zone style lanes might work, it's always a hassle and always a pain in the a** trying to navigate my way to the boarding door."

Pros: "Airline was clean and upgraded, flight departed and arrived on time. Crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The space"
Cons: "No TVs"

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Cons: "It was cold"

Pros: "We traveled first class. Plane needs an update. Seats were not comfortable and did not work correctly. the crew had to continually pull the seat cushions up and reset the elec mechanism b"

Pros: "flight was canceled"

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

Cons: "the older stuardess on my flight from Cancun to Atlanta was very misinformed- told me my carry on wouldn't fit in the over head bin... it did. Told me I had to check my duty free liquor.. I didn't. Told me I couldn't bring all of my liquor in to the US... I could. I just kept saying ok to her just to shut her up, but she ensued with her comments and wrong info as if I don't travel as often as I do. Perhaps she was attempting to be helpful, but it came off as obnoxious and rude especially since she was wrong on every accord. Humbleness and customer service training would do her very good. All other DELTA staff have been great."

Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The flight was rough. The coffee was horrible though."

Cons: "Bad"

Pros: "I was able to get a gluten free snack"
Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."

Cons: "My row didn't have sound on our entertainment system. I was able to move to another seat and they did compensate the couple that was next tho new with beverages and miles to their account."

Pros: "Finally got upgraded!"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment system was good, great crew, great food, great service"

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"

Pros: "Very Comfy plane."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."

Pros: "Everything was just right"

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Pros: "Like the smaller plane: less craziness!"
Cons: "Would've been better without the delay, but the aircraft was late getting to Atlanta."

Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"

Pros: "The flight actually took off."
Cons: "No forewarning of weather impacting flights 3 days later, allowing passengers to potentially change flights. Two hour delay became a four delay which became a five hour delay. Delta reps entirely unhelpful when I asked if anything could be done, "Atlanta is a disaster right now." I get that these things happen from time to time, but Delta is handling this very poorly. I'm actually waiting for my flight out of Atlanta and it's also been delayed, luckily only for 30 minute this time."

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

Pros: "Flight late 46 minutes, they forgot I asked for a vegetarian meal, my business class round ticket to Peru did not gave me acceds"

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"

Pros: "Flight was slightly delayed (20 min). However, boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was full so no option to distance."

Pros: "The staff was friendly, the available entertainment was good, and the seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Our final connecting flight was late because the plane and the crew had not yet arrived at our airport before we were supposed to start boarding. The airline did not announce this until we were scheduled to start boarding. We had to go to a different gate and wait nearly two more hours for our flight to depart."

Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"

Pros: "Crew mediocre, a bit odd. Old plane, no power, WiFi, nor entertainment."
Cons: "WiFi and entertainment"

Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."

Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight, but the pilot was on our side and we made it just in time!"

Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "No food offered. Premium seating that I paid for was so narrow there was no way I could sit next to the person next to me and not have their elbows on me."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"

Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."

Pros: "Upgraded seat on the Boeing 777 was near the exit, and I had plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Although British Airways and American Airlines are alliance partner companies, their systems don’t behave as such. It took me too many attempts to mention in order to simply upgrade my seat. The booking locator number is different for both airlines, and no one ever informed me of that critical information"

Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."

Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."

Pros: "The flight left Tallahassee and arrived in Charlotte on time. Better yet, I received an upgrade to first class. The flight attendant was attentive and the pilot wasn't too verbose."
Cons: "There were no cookies among the offered snacks!"

Pros: "Great staff and crew. Keep you posted and informed. Good service."

Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"

Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"

Pros: "The employee who checked me in was very helpful - found my frequent flyer number for another airline and give me a free checked bag."

Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"

Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."

Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"

Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Was asked to keep moving to another check in line. By the time we got to an open kiosk it was too late and the machine said we could no longer check our bags! Just Awful"

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

Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"

Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."

Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."

Cons: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."

Pros: "I have been traveling several times with this airline and think they are good overall."
Cons: "Reclining chair sometime is not working."

Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth. Some of the planes were fairly new."
Cons: "Paid for each bag, on one regional flight the.plane was falling apart on the inside with no padding on the seat, armrest padding coming off the seats in multiple seats."

Pros: "The crew and all employees were very nice and did their best to ensure that my travels went smoothly. The flight was not so comfortable but I didn't mind much. Over all good flight"

Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Thendelays"

Pros: "I received help from the staff at the airport when I wasn't sure what to do."
Cons: "My flight was changed a few times so I was sitting in the airport for seven hours before I was even informed on which flight I would actually be on. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seat 40, noisy space"

Cons: "Flight delayed. Seats are not very comfortable."

Cons: "There was no air conditioner on the airplane . made it very uncomfortable ."

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The price for flight was great. Layover was perfectly timed and didn’t have to wait long before boarding."

Pros: "It was a mediocre flight. No frills."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Pros: "Flight attendant hooked it up with a whole open isle of seating and free drinks!"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Cons: "It was repeatedly delayed."

Cons: "Taggged carry-on bag, claimed A/C had no space, when I boarded saw lots of bin space not used. I am on a transfer to Intl. fight, so in sFO had to claim baggage and go through all of security again"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "Curtial personnel"
Cons: "Late departures both ways."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Cons: "This is about my 3rd FC experience where the 2nd meal option was not availbale for everyone. other than that drink service was prompt and bountiful!"

Pros: "Staff was friendly. And,Handicap assistance was good."
Cons: "Check in was very complicated & inconvienent! They wouldn't accept my gift bank card. Then we had to pay for a card because they didnt accept cash either,& nowhere,to get,cash. My husband had to leave &get money out,which took a,half hour-no easy way to check in."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Too tight to sit in seat"

Pros: "Friendly atmosphere"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "'Nuff said"
Cons: "Everything else was great!!!"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Cons: "lack of storage space overhead. cramped seating. old plane. no wifi or entertainment."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Our first leg of the flight was great."
Cons: "My husband was upgraded to first class, but they wouldn't upgrade me. The rep at the boarding station was very, very rude as well. We will reconsider when it's time for the next trip. We do have a choice on who we fly with."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Quick bording, organized. Smooth flight."
Cons: "On board entertainment lacked horribly unless you are willing to pay extra. And the on flight snack was a joke."
