Cons: "Had to sit next to someone that was so big she had to put up the arm seat and sit on half my seat. Thank god I’m 110 but sitting next to the window made me very claustrophobic."

Cons: "They boarded us then we had to switch planes. Delayed an hour"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"

Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "Late on hour"
Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff by 1 hour waiting for a crew to fly in. Upon crew arrival, new crew member states that there are standby crew available and he's not sure why they didn't call on them. Then we continued to wait for 3 more passengers who were delayed and now had a chance to board our flight. Once landed, gate was occupied by yet another flight running late so we waited for 15 minutes to get to the gate."
Cons: "Hour delay"
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"

Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "The crew managed to serve a glass of water. No snack, not even a bag of pretzels. They managed to collect trash four times. Again, they barely acknowledged the passengers. What happened to customer service?"
Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"
Cons: "Left with plenty of time but: -Terrible traffic! More than 3 hrs -Had to wait 30 min for shuttle -At airport they said flight was via American, other terminal. My paper from Kayak says Air Alaska -Terminal for flight uses separate bldg so shuttles to terminal , more time needed."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"
Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."

Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"
Cons: "Started with waiting in the terminal, only way to get anything to eat is through United self checkout. Bought a veggie burger paid for it then told at the pick up counter they don’t have any. Need to track down a manager to get a refund. He says he issues me a refund but it never came through. Then on the flight WiFi isn’t working, no entertainment on a cross country flight of 6 hours. Not a word mentioned, no credit offered. Was offered credit by delta for the same issue on a flight half the length of time. Super uncomfortable seats. Also no current to charge devices. My friend moved up to a different seat that was empty to try to get power for her phone and told she needs to pay 160$ to sit in that seat even though the plane is half empty. Just really poor experience overall.."
Cons: "Flight left 8 hours late because they couldn’t find a tire."
Pros: "United flight left without me! I was there in time...45 minutes early... but sitting in another one of their planes waiting to get off the connecting flight!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I loved going through US customs in Ireland, so that it made my connection to my USA flight a breeze."
Cons: "Too many crying babies and children. (Flights need a section for young children and infants.) I can handle a 2 hour flight, but not 6+ hours of constant noise) I did not use it, but the entertainment system kept locking up and the flight attendants needed to reboot. If I had been depending on this entertainment it would not have been good. The flight attendants did not come through the cabin enough to pick up trash."
Cons: "DEN security line was long and slow"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 90 mins; I was not concerned but understandably some folks were not so happy. Everything else was great."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarded on the tarmac when it was cold and windy and in no particular order so it was a long time standing in the cold"
Cons: "Luggage delay"
Pros: "Great crew, boarding process, drink service"
Cons: "No entertainment or food served on flight for free"
Cons: "Customer service was terrible. I was told I was not their customer and they wouldn't help me. When the agents sent me away for the 2nd time, after promising to hold the door, I returned and the agent closed it in my face."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Fell asleep right as the plane took off and was not disturbed by anybody for the duration of the flight. As a result I do not know whether food and drinks were served and their quality."

Pros: "The attendant was very nice, professional and friendly. My flight was only an hour."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for over an hour we were told by the pilot that we had to go back to the gate to get more fuel! All this because the plane's computer did not agree with the central computer. So: 1) Why didn't the pilot check and fix this discrepancy at the gate? 2) Why did it take more than hour for them to decide what to do? 3) Why did the pilot and cabin crew take over an hour to inform us what was going on? There were many angry people on this flight, including me."
Cons: "Hard landing, puking passenger that started at boarding til landing. Bags were smashed up, that's just the beginning."
Pros: "The seats on the E175 were more comfortable than those on other RJs."
Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"
Cons: "Our seats and boarding passes were given to two other people! How can someone else board a plane with our names on the boarding passes?!"
Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"
Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."
Pros: "Getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "Hate LAX. Hate the empowered TSA. LAX seems to be forever under construction. Avoid if possible."
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour, so they didn't charge for TV."
Cons: "Flight "attendant" bumped into my shoulder every time she walked by. Splashed with liquids (ice/soda) multiple times by the flight "attendant" running the drink cart, then they skipped past me when it came my turn for a drink. Very cramped cabin."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Cons: "not offered any break on food or beverage, or wifi."
Pros: "Flight from LA to Sacramento was one hour delayed! No heartfelt apology, almost like this happens all the time."
Cons: "We're treated like livestock!"
Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Pros: "Crew and workers were all pleasant and polite"
Cons: "United knows they can't fly into Orange County after curfew. This was handled terrible. After 4 delays. All weather related we were finally boarded. Yay hope. Not even to our destination. Boarded to LAX. Now we are seated. The announcement pilots won't fly. No. It is illegal for them to fly. Why not tell customers. Don't blame pilots. Also you know the rules why board us. Even if we flew we still needed a two hour ride to SNA. It was sheer luck I called and was told another flight leaving in 8 min at gate 14 ten gates away. My running to catch that flight was not good. I made it panting. Arrived in LAX at 2:00 a m Not my destination. If nothing else people should be compensated by United don't you think?"
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
