Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "My bag was lost, but I think that was more of an American Airlines issue than a Alaska one."
Pros: "The crew was professional in every way,"
Cons: "There were a couple of individuals with oversized carry-ons that held up boarding as they tried repeatedly to get the carry-ons into the overhead bins. Utilizing a carry-on sizing tool in the gate area would have identified these two oversized carry-ons PRIOR to boarding and could have kept everyone safer. Instead, passengers behind the offenders were waiting while the bags were opened, items removed, and another attempt made at stuffing them into the overhead bins, all while passengers already seated were subjected to even more compromised social distancing in enclosed spaces."
Pros: "IT was ok, for a 45 flight"
Cons: "The crew was so rude!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good crew on this leg. While not always the case, they left the lights off for the entire flight and only had them dimly on when doing their final checks. It was also nice that everybody was handed water bottles that wanted one."

I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "On time and can check in at least two bags each passenger !"
Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No reclining capability"
Cons: "Downloading an app to watch the movies does not work out if you're already in flight bc the wifi connection won't let you access the App Store. A little counter productive!"

Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "The beer."

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Delay due to maintenance"
Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. Even though I am only a coach passenger, when I spend $400+ on a flight I expect at least a little bit of attention to be paid to the comfort and ergonomics of the seat."
Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Cons: "need more space"
Pros: "All of the above. The round trip was a pleasure"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and then postponed to 3 hours later but at least they reaccommodated the passengers as good as they could."
Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."
Cons: "A small credit for miles as the Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "We are just tired of spending a lot on tickets and receiving the most minimum of a snack and drink on flights."

Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thankyou so much."
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing Best flight"
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Cons: "Middle seat, last row. In a full flight, and the passenger in fronf reclines, its difficult to watch monitor, eat, or move"
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Pre-Boarding was very good"
Cons: "Meal service and trash pickup was poor. When meals were served, within 15 minutes food tray pickup was rushed making me feel like I had to cram the food down my throat. I did not and there was no further trash pickup for several hours. I initiated the attendant lamp and no crew responded."
Pros: "Don't know yet, because I have not left Korea."
Cons: "Not happy that DELTA changed my flight again and now I arrive (6) hours later in Philly. Longer layover in Detroit is not comforting! Hoping/praying that DELTA doesn't change more on this flight going home!"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "the flight was delayed by about 90 minutes and the gate was changed two times."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Cons: "LATE ARRIVAL from Amsterdam. Missed my connecting flight to Atlanta at 5:30pm. Changed to 6:35pm "departure" Still departed late and arrived in Atlanta at 9:00pm+. I should be home by then."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Frontier canceled the flight. Delta delayed the flight that I rescheduled. One of the worst traveling experiences I have had in a long time. My day started at 3:30am. I’m just now going to my hotel at 12:40 am"
Pros: "Fairbanks airport small and cozy, very easy to hear boarding announcements. There were two seats in our row and behind us that had been assigned to more than one person. The flight attendants were very quick and resourceful in solving the issue to everyone’s satisfaction."
Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
Cons: "Food was terrible, for first class they need to up the standards"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Pros: "Liked choice of Biscuit, almonds or pretzel"
Cons: "I used mobile checking and did not get seat assignment till Boarding started"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."
Pros: "I loved his pilot. His take of and landing were so smooth. I wish I could request him and his co-pilot for every trip I take. The flight attendants served and did not hang around and harass you like some do. They were efficient."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
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."
Cons: "Announcements at the gate could be more clear."
Cons: "One lavatory didn't work and we had to use the nathroom for first class..couldnt access bathroom half of the flight"
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Pros: "Delta crews are the best in the US, very competent and they know how to take care of you."
Cons: "Flight delays. And their lousy air miles program which has become very difficult to redeem for travel. Sky miles has become very terrible. Planning to switch my loyalty program"
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
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."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Pros: "Good selection of movies available, but right half of touch screen was broken..."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed almost 30 minutes for "baggage," but Delta still managed to leave many passengers' luggage in Amsterdam. Desk agent guaranteed baggage delivery within 24 hours. 4 days and 3 airports later, my bag reached my hotel. Fly Air France instead. The food is better and they won't lose your luggage."
Cons: "We were almost 2 hour delay inside the hot plan..."
Pros: "Entertainment options for a long flight. Room seats."
Cons: "Only one crew member ensured passengers had plenty of hydration. A couple crew spent time on their phones & casually chatting while the one was doing her job. No light snacks on a 5.5 hr flight? I thoroughly am disappointed with the extra charges Sun Country throws at passengers for carry ons?"
Pros: "Much better than Spirit. Things were cramped but not unbearable and I was on a 5.75 hour flight. Plane was new and clean. I liked that the armrests were thin."
Cons: "Ok. So you aren’t allowed to check in before you get to the airport unless you pick your seat - which costs money. Very sneaky. But then I wanted to pay for a bag without checking in. Let. Me. Just. Say. - this was possibly more difficult than hacking into the pentagon. Lort."
Pros: "Even though we departed a little late, we arrived close to on time."
Pros: "I got from point A to B on a non-stop flight. Desk staff and flight attendants were polite and accommodating."
Cons: ""Lowest fairs!!" and then on check in they nickel and dime you with extra costs for even a carry on AND to choose a seat that you already bought!! I mean, you don't have to. You could always just wait until check in at the airport and get thrown into a middle seat. Saving extra money was what pushed me over the edge here, but after all the fees after booking was paid for and experience, I would have gladly paid the extra money to fly Alaska Airlines. Also, you would think on a 5.5 hr flight that occurs over/near dinner time there would be more food options than just snack packs. Even that was mediocre."
Pros: "I loved how, once the aircraft was there they updated us and got everyone organized during the boarding process and we left in a reasonable amount of time after the aircraft arrived. I didn't have any problems with the flight, and it was nice to be notified in advanced about the upcoming turbulence."
Cons: "It was late, and with my long layover, I couldn't check-in without exiting the secure area. They are understaffed, and they don't have anyone in the secured area to even ask questions too, let along check in passengers that are transferring from other airlines. Also, there wasn't anything showing the passengers that the flight was delayed until 10 minutes before the flight was supposed to leave. I knew it was late, only after the agent from a different airline did many searches into my connecting flight, and I also asked my check-in agent at Sun Country, I had to ask! That information was not given willingly."
Cons: "There are fees for carry on and checked luggage, there is a fee for entertainment, and there are no complementary snacks or meals. My luggage didn't make my connection, even with an hour layover."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed by an hour and two hours. Customer service refused to help me out even though I completely missed my connecting flight and wasn’t able to get home in time to make me sons birthday party."
Pros: "I made it to my destination along with my checked bag."
Cons: "Plane was 45 minutes late taking off. Plane is very crowded and cramped. Gate ataff is either untrained or apothetic"
Pros: "We chose this flight as it was a direct flight from MSP to Anchorage. Takeoff was just slightly behind schedule, maybe 25 minutes or so. We were only 15 minutes behind on arrival. We were given beverages a few times during the flight."
Cons: "Did not like the long lines at the check in counter. They need to hire more people. I don’t like when we board and then are not able to get up into the sky for some time. Then they expect people who have been waiting on the plane to not need to use the restrooms. “The pilot has not turned off the seat-belt sign yet” is true, but also you boarded us late and then couldn’t get up into the air right away. Also, our checked bag didn’t arrive with us. We’re waiting to here if it was lost or not."
Cons: "Ticket agents Zahara and Consuelo decided I had to pay $40 to carry on a bag on return flight that I had carried on on my destination flight for no charge, as I was steps away from boarding the plane. Very same agents that checked me in at ticketing and said nothing about my carry on bag. This airline extorts money from passengers, pay up or miss your flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 and 1/2 hours. The plane was a mess. One of the seats was broken causing more delays. To top it off my golf clubs never arrived. The final straw was listening to the customer service recording tell me for 30 minutes how seriously they take luggage issues. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The plane wasn’t full so there was room to stretch out."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late in taking off - no problem for me but I’m sure there were others who may have missed connections or had relatives/friends inconvenienced by this delay."
Pros: "Our first flight was canceled due to snowstorm. Once we were rebooked and ready both flights were great! That’s why we choose Sun Country!!!"
Cons: "During a severe snowstorm Sun Country would not make the call to cancel our flight! Almost everything was canceled at 1pm when they shut down the airport...but our flight and 2 other Sun Country flights. So we had to fight the storm to get there in unsafe conditions!!!! As we watched the storm get worse, we actually had to board the plane! Then we had to deboard when the airport shut down again.. I felt very unsafe! By the time they finally canceled at 5:30 we were barely able to get the last cab from the airport. Sun Country put us in a dangerous situation to save a few dollars by not canceling the flight!! I was a flight attendant for Sun Country for a short time and thought I had seen a lot, but this was a very poor judgement call!!"
Pros: "On timeflight. Even arrived early"
Pros: "Good Service, Flight arrived ahead of schedule, hassle free, good value"
Cons: "Wish they had a Mobile App, Online checkin on website using phone was cumbersome"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accomodating!"
Pros: "Same comment as above."
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Pros: "5+ hours Minneapolis to Anchorage was great"
Cons: "Seats a bit small"
Pros: "Again good pilot"
Cons: "Again super cheap but there was slightly mor leg room which seemed the normal amount this time"
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Long flight ( 5 hrs) not even a complimentary snack offered"
Pros: "Great service, made good timing, no issues"
Cons: "No tablets in back of seat, had to request for use"
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st class"
Pros: "The headrest were nice, no neck pillow was needed because of how I could adjust it. Checking in was very quick and painless, something I appreciate very much. Drink service was nice, they did come around more then expected. The staff was very nice an accommodating , very friendly when we boarded the plane."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. I brought my husband for his first flight and I had told him how comfortable flying was, but when we boarded the plane he was a little horrified about the seats. He said, "they look like metal skeletons with pleather stretched over them." Yikes, I was a little embarrassed for telling him how comfortable he would be. I usually fly coach and I guess I was surprised not to find better seats and screens for movies attached to the back of the headrest (that sounds terribly spoiled, sorry)."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, sat by rest rooms very busy at times"
Pros: "On time departures, friendly service"
Cons: "seats not the most comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Clean plane, roomy, easy on off, nice staff"
Cons: "No free snacks, no free entertainment"
Pros: "Flew first class because it was a 6 hour flight. The flight attendants were not helpful and didn't pickup trash, empty cups etc from anyone in the first class cabin. Never made eye contact to see if anything else was needed. Disappointing service."
Pros: "Lucked out with no one in the middle seat again.."
Cons: "I was in row 9 so my seat didn't recline because the exit row was behind me which literally made me furious. I was so uncomfortable I asked a flight attendant for a pillow & she said they didn't have any when I in fact saw the overhead compartment in the front of the plane with pillows in it while boarding... I found that super rude."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport about 50 minutes prior to departure due to an unexpected delay. After a poor experience with the online check-in tool (it failed to allow us to check in & wouldn't let me purchase a checked bag), my girlfriend & I made it to the check-in desk about 40 minutes before departure (which has never been a problem with any other airline). The receptionists practically laughed at me when I asked to check in, and without missing a beat or even checking anything on the computer, they told me that the plane was already on the runway waiting to depart. We asked if they could help us book a make-up flight, and they practically laughed again and said, "Yeah, for next Sunday." I found this hard to believe that the plane was on the runway so early. The whole experience was very unpleasant, and we received little help from them. After a half-hour wait on the phone, I was offered a voucher for another Sun Country flight. Very dissatisfied with this. I appreciate the direct flight from MSP-SAV, as I don't think any other airline offers it. But I don't think I'll fly with Sun Country again."
Pros: "The seats"
Pros: "No frills"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. I had no issues there. The crew was great and I was comfortable."
Cons: "I repeatedly had issues with their website and I couldn't checkin online or update any of my information, even when I called them. I also had to connect flights at the airport and I asked the airline beforehand if I had enough time, as I flew into a different terminal. They said that I did, but I almost missed my flight, even though I had two hours. The signage was poor as MSP, which isn't Sun Country's fault, however they made the transfer sound easier than it was."
Pros: "The flight attendants were moderately polite"
Cons: "The flight was 8 hours late. The stated reason "weather" was not credible and we not informed. There was no offer of a meal or any other accommodation at all. I will NEVER fly Sun Country again!"
Pros: "A good price for non-stop flight. It flies out of terminal 2 which has easier access than terminal 1 at the MSP airport. The afternoon fly out time worked well with my schedule."
Cons: "The seats could always be a little larger."
Pros: "Treated great and upgraded with no questions asked. Handled system being doing fantastically."
Cons: "No concerns great service"
Cons: "When I checked in for the flight, I was told that I would not be charged the $25 baggage fee because I was given a seat ( and the responsibility) for sitting in the emergency evacuation row. Imagine my surprise when you charged me the fee anyway! Disappointed....."
Pros: "everything good would fly again"
Cons: "Had to CALL airline to get seat assignment. No was to check in online otherwise."
Cons: "we could have gotten chips, pretzels or something lite for a snack"
Pros: "It was smooth. Great takeoff and a good landing."
Cons: "The seats are to hard to sit on."
Pros: "Very caring and friendly crew."
Pros: "Boarding went well and so did getting off the plane."
Cons: "Two of the flight attendants that we dealt with at the back of the plane were for rude not only to my husband and I but to our 7 year old child who was seated in a different row."
Pros: "The crew at the check-in changed my parent's seat so that they can sit next to each other."
Cons: "We called Sun Country to changed seat but music played for 20 min, we couldn't talk to customer service through phone call."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. We were served multiple beverages on this flight."
Cons: "They do not give you complimentary snacks. We have a 6 hour flight no snacks and no entertainment. But both are available for extra charges."
Cons: "There seems to have been a mix up. Several parties were scattered throughout the plan. My husband and I were on opposite sides of the plane. Another woman was 20 rows behind her husband. There was a family with four kids, each was in a different row- though they were able to corral them with assistance. We booked several months earlier, so I'm not sure why it happened."
Pros: "We enjoy flying Sun Country and find it comfortable. The staff is very courteous and it's very good value for the money."
Pros: "Courteous staff, smooth flight"
Cons: "Online check-in does not work."
Pros: "That you have Surly products"
Cons: "I am not a terribly large person. But my space for sitting was constricted."
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Cons: "We need food"
Cons: "Lack of social distancing with American Airlines"
Cons: "No social distancing due to all of the seats being booked. My significant other was moved from her seat to another one across from me which was unfortunate."
Cons: "First time wearing face mask all the time. It was okay."
Pros: "On time, only one gate change!"
Cons: "Cheaper. Ran out of food on the incoming flight. Should have planned better"
Cons: "I have never been on an AA flight where the entertainment system has worked all the way through. Additionally, when willl there be plugs on these planes? In a six and half hour flight where you need to use your device (when the system is working), this seems like it is a little old school"
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."
Pros: "Customer Service was acceptable."
Cons: "Flights were cancelled and bags were lost!"
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Pros: "They were very apologetic about all of the delays and they tried to make it up to us the best they could."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Lemoncello Cream and tape measure."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "The crew was great, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "I was seated in the middle seat between two other fully grown men. That’s three fully grown men in seats in the back of the plane. These seats are typically uncomfortable, but can be bearable if not all three seats are filled."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Negative leg room. If the seat next to me had not been vacant, my legs would have lost circulation."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."
Cons: "They switched planes last minute in Chicago that delayed us by 55 minute which led to us missing our connecting flight in London. That connecting flight,4 1/2 hours later, was delayed, twice! We had to rearrange everything waiing for us at our final destination. BTW there was no explanation nor bad weather to cause this problem."
Cons: "Boarding crew did not realize I had priority boarding and split me up from my wife. Not a big deal, just annoying."
Cons: "Since it left without me."
Cons: "A huge queue due to AA policy to un respect BA policy of free 23 kg checked luggage of Int’l flights. A scandal, a shame. Won’t travel anymore with BA & AA."
Cons: "Old overhead monitors for movies. Audio did not work at my seat."
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, staff appeared very tired, food service was missed twice on one side of our class section like they didn't have assigned sections. Also, the food and drink options do not compare to British Airways who we originally purchased our tickets from. All alcohol is free with BA."
Pros: "It got me here."
Cons: "Apparently codeshare purchases are non upgradable, so my airline status was irrelevant."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "WIfI didn't work"
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was good, they had live TV and other TV shows."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic with passengers fighting over the overhead compartment spaces, security measures were overbearing with around 2 hours of going thru checks between terminals at Heathrow Airport. The seat selection is a joke since we could never select our seat not even 24 hours before the flight, so buyers be aware. The food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Cons: "Our audio did not work for movies. The food was super cheap"
Cons: "There were 2 flights going to Roanoke at almost the same time. The other one was delayed by a lot; ours by a little. But personnel DIDN'T TELL US WHAT WAS GOING ON. We were all standing around wondering what was happening.It's the NOT KNOWING that is so horrible. We could tell from the screen that it was delayed, but it was clear the flight would leave much later than the screen said, but they wouldn't tell us anything!"
Cons: "There was just an announcement that the refreshments will be served shortly but there were no refreshments. Take off and landing was horrible. Flight was shaking way more than usual."
Cons: "The seat I had reserved was given away even though I paid extra for it back in February. American Airlines rep said it was because when i book through a 3rd party like Kayak, they can't guarantee my seat assignment."
Cons: "We didnt managed to get on that flight due to the delay from precious flight from philadelphia"
Pros: "Like the clean, comfortable seating. Great crew service and in time!"
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the seats were extra comfortable"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was pleasant."
Cons: "When I checked in I wasn't given a seat assignment. I had to wait until I got to the gate."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding wasn't an issue, and the flight was smooth."

Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Cons: "Plane was full!"

Pros: "The flight was nice and easy. Great food and service."
Cons: "Plane is still yet to be upgraded to full Polaris experience"
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."
Cons: "The WiFi system is very slow"
Pros: "overall great flights"
Cons: "food could've been a bit better."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Cons: "Don’t use United out of Charlotte"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Pros: "As always with United you know what to expect being a Silver Star Alliance member."
Cons: "It was a normal United flight, good, but not outstanding - in coach class - it is one of the most reliable national carriers."
Pros: "The front desk was able to change our seats so that my husband and I were able to sit together and we were very appreciative for this."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable, too long and they were unable to provide meals and ran out of plastic cups."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "priority boarding; seat;"
Cons: "snacks selection was limited"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."

Pros: "I liked that I personally wasn't beaten in the face"
Cons: "I don't like United. They can suck a fat one."
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Pros: "Crew. Pilot did an excellent job getting us back to Chicago. Flight attendants were friendly. Couldn't rate food or entertainment,there wasn't any."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable...fold-down tray was too low..seats too narrow."
Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "How can they keep on squeezing people in a plane... this is becoming ridiculous"
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, less leg room and had to use your own tablet or phone for entertainment. Flight was late. Large plane."
Pros: "Seats are to small but fortunately sat directly behind first class and had plenty of leg room. The new entertainment system worked well."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Pros: "Updated plane, free movies"
Cons: "Only 1 little snack for 8-10 hour flight"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."

Cons: "food is so bad, low quality and small portion looong period before main meal and last meal"
Pros: "I liked the movies on the seat."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay because they didn't know how to manage the weight of the plane. We waited 2 hours on the plane to take off, and ended up missing our next flight"
Cons: "Airlines asking the economy customers to upgrade the seats . Without the upgrade they are giving random seats numbers to the family"
Pros: "I was on an exit row so I had a lot of room and could sleep comfortably. The luggage came quickly and both pieces were there!"
Cons: "Noisy children kept waking me up but I know that was beyond the control of the airline."
Cons: "They canceled my flight, lost my luggage made me miss events in my life on my vacation and only comped me 20$ food ticket which is nothing in an airport. And I was stuck in an unfamiliar airport for 10 hours waiting for a new flight through another airline. Oh and dod I mention the bag they lost for a whole day was 50lbs of fresh Alaskan seafood and yes it all was thawed.... I will never fly United airlines again."
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: "Very good"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly. Jumped at any and all requests. Always looking for ways to assist all flyers. Boarding was quick and easy. Plane was on time, boarded quickly, AC worked perfectly, plenty of blankets and food was spectacular. Crew made the 6 hour flight feel like an hour of comfort."
Cons: "No wifi because we traveled through Canada, and the tv was no working"
Pros: "I liked the friendly smiles everywhere. I was lucky to score a window seat with no one in the middle."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay $25 to check one bag and the Wi-fi didn't work all flight."
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"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no TVs, no free wifi"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Pros: "Outlets at all the seats."
