Pros: "Left on time, smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Was in first class front row. I was offered only one drink the entire 6.5 hour flight. The flight attendant in first class never came around and asked if i would like anything else. The potatoes served with the meal were not cooked completely and they let the entire coach section use the forward bathroom so it was like sitting at the very back. Had to wait several times for several others before i could use the first class lavatory. They didn't turn off the cabin lights until very late in the flight so we could sleep. The flight attendant(s) in first class were not friendly. Wifi was horrible and almost not useable. Definitely not worth the $29 I had to pay. I fly this trip regularly and are almost always delighted but this trip was disappointing to say the least."

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: "Travel time, good flt crew and flt."
Cons: "Seats were to short"
Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly. Flight on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Extra cramped. Very uncomfortable for 5 hour flight. Not even enough room to work on 13" laptop. Wanted extra $80 for 4" extra legroom. Seems steep for not really much difference. Airlines getting too cheap and cramming people in. Had to lean against window just to keep from bumping person next to me."
Pros: "Great flight staff, great boarding organization, comfortable flight. Awesome that gogoinflight is offered free."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was great, media entertainment with gogoinflight worked fine on my laptop, food was good by airplane standards (got Ono bowl)."
Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."
Pros: "The hand held pc's loaded with movies was very cool. The crew was exceptional The sequence of the meal service was very good"
Cons: "The first class seats were not very comfortable, have traveled on various competitors in first and these seat were the first to cause me shoulder and neck discomfort (note this is the first time that Ive traveled in first on AS) The lunch main meal meat were over done, my wife had the chicken and I the pork both were dry as a desert."
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: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
Pros: "Nice crew and yum cheese plate"
Cons: "Late boarding and late arrival."
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."
Pros: "Good flight, attendants were great! I would definitely fly Alaska Airlines 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: "Not being able to fly first class"
Pros: "Military, Alaska airlines was awesome allowing active duty members to bring up to 6 bags up to 70lbs each witch helped us a lot since we when transferring to another state. Boarding was fast, and the crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was delicious, but I couldn't give a five stars just because I had to pay for it. 6 hours flight it was necessary to eat something, it was just $6 and drinks were free. So I give a 4 start for that reason. Entertainment was good if you bring your own tablet or laptop. Some shows are free and some you have to pay for. They also had tablets for rent for $10. Confort, it was a pretty big plane. I had the bad luck to get the seat in front of the emergency exit so I couldn't reclined my sit but it wasn't that bad."
"The constant droning on and on about masks is tiring. STOP!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"

Cons: "Broken tray table literally off its hinges and unusable."
Pros: "Very clean and safe. Practicing social distancing. Provided hand sanitizer wipes and snacks in a bag"
Cons: "When disembarking the plane there should have been more organization for social distancing. There shouldn’t be people standing over your trying to hurry and get off the plane. Everyone should stay seated until it’s time for your row to get off. None of the flight staff made people do this"
Pros: "Baggage handlers extremely fast"
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was great , also being able to watch live tv. Cabin crew were good"

Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Woman next to me with crying baby didn’t care that her baby’s head and arms where pretty much in my seat the whole flight. And the girl in front of me was wildly dancing the whole flight in her seat with headphones on and she get pushing back in her seat hitting my knees And every announcement the flight attendant made during the flight sounded like he was stoned and obviously didn’t care what he was saying"
Pros: "Timing of the flight and the luggage step by step notification"
Pros: "The quickness of boarding n the crew"
Cons: "the landin n small seats"
Pros: "Plane was clean and updated"
Cons: "No negative opinions"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "There was an issue when taxing to the runway and we had to be towed back for repairs. The problem was as we waited there was no AC for too long. The staff was also very unfriendly. 2 times they hit my seat with their cart. I was just not a great experience"
Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."

Pros: "Food and nice crew"
Cons: "No tvs and bad WiFi"

Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "New plane with knight entertainment screens at all seats!"
Cons: "Delayed, bit crew was friendly and efficient!"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
"Our flight was delayed by 7 hours"
Cons: "I don’t think so. Thank you!"
Pros: "timing and services"

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew."

Cons: "Well the flight was short, so not much more could be done on this particular flight. The restroom could be a tad larger but think was on an older aircraft."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Pros: "Wasn’t horrible."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be on time. Not packed so every single seat was filled. But it was as expected which is the best we can expect."

Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."

I was rebooked for a flight to smile Palm Springs the next day which I did not except. Then I was booked to leave Dallas to Los Angeles that flight was delayed also. To make matters worse my bags ended up in LA when they were supposed to be route it all the way to Palm Springs. I still don’t have my bags yet. Called three times and the representatives cannot reassure me of my bags on the way."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The crew were attentive."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The boarding should start from back to front."

Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"

Pros: "Clean boarding area."
Cons: "American airline agent who checked us in at the curb side asked for the money. Will not use curb side check-in."
Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly"
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"

Pros: "not much they gave us snacks"
Cons: "how long i had to wait"

"Less over zealous woke flight attendants. Never again ! I felt more like a prisoner than a passenger."
Pros: "The crew was great and the first class experience was what I expected"
Cons: "The plane was late, there were no boarding group lanes set up at the gate so even though I had first class seats and priority boarding I had to make my way through a large group of people in an unorganized fashion to get on the plane."
"If you plan to fly United and want to watch a movie, plan to bring both types of headsets. ( 1 for smart phones, 1 old school headset). My flight going required the old school headset, except the seat I was in had a broken port and since subtitles were not available, I had to watch my movie without sound(fun!). On the way back, United offered the United app where you can access movies from your smart phone, except I didn’t bring smart head phones. Since I watched a silent movie going, how much worse could it get? Well, it got worse since no movie would even load. The crew explained that we were traveling over water and that was the reason, but I tried on and off for the whole flight and the movie never loaded so that reason sounds like bullshit."
Pros: "Non combatants."
Cons: "Screaming babies who’s parents let’s the run around, people listening to movies without head phones"
Pros: "crew were great."
Pros: "United Airline is lying to its guests. United advertise they will be middle seat between pesengers and we board a packed flight today. United is irresponsible and putting pessengers at risk of covid-19 exposure! This is unacceptable. False advertising - people paid for social distance on the plane bit encounter the opposite !!"
Cons: "United Airline need to be HONEST! United broke my trust. United need to update its message online and be honest - that they only care about profit during this pandemic!!"
Pros: "Stewardesses were pleasant"
Cons: "I had a basic economy so there was nothing I could have changed. The flight was good and captain alerted us frequently of status. Overall good"
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Cons: "Had to wait over 20 minutes to check in. Right before boarding i was forced to pay $25 to check in my handbag otherwise i was not going to be able to board."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Cons: "Had to pay for Direct TV."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "Nothing really stands out as exceptional"
Cons: "The snack mix... that was absolutely disgusting. It was an Asian-style snack mix and I was just hoping for something like pretzels, or peanuts. Not a ball of wasabi"
Pros: "Boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "One of our tv's didnt work on the flight. All flights should have free movies. Flying into Florida we were able to enjoy a movie but on the flight back home everything (even a regular tv channel) had to be purchased."
Cons: "Layoverof 3 hours"
Pros: "Professionalisam, friendliness and smiles of United stewards."

I had the worst experience with this airline... it was my first time traveling with u guys and it was so terrible that I would never travel again with u guys.... I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "My first class seat would not recline and I had a broken leg in casting, it was absolutely difficult for me to stay up the 6 hours flight. The food choice was only one choice since the run out of the other selection."
Cons: "Flight delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."

Cons: "Walked in with 45 mins to spare my girlfriend took JetBlue we got there at the same time they put my girlfriend on united put me on a flight a hour later on stand by I didn't know what this meant I don't fly often come to find out the man at the front basically just screwed me they tell me there are no more seats I need to go on a flight that was originally for 5 but delayed to 6 obviously now I am upset I am admittedly easing my voice who wouldn't to speak to a manager a man tells me to come down or he is getting security and I will be removed I say once more I want a manger he gets security THEN GET THIS THAT WAS THE MANAGER LOL who just did not want to help because he is lazy and dosent like his job then when 6 30 finally rolls around the temperature in the plane had to be on 80 at the end of my flight my shorts were soaked in sweat DONOT EVER FLY UNITES EVER"
Pros: "I have no complaints. On time, easy peasy!"
Pros: "Timely boarding"
Pros: "The people that work for the company are good, professional...But: No leg room if over 6'; Everything extra $--water, $45 for a CARRY ON! $59.00 membership to save $9.00 off your bag; can you do the math? YELLOW advertising is just to make you hungry--but no food!"
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Feeling like a sardine"
Cons: "I was in Group 5, and by the time boarding was complete with group 2, there was no more room in the overhead bins for carry on luggage. This meant that Groups 3-5 needed to gate check carry on bags and then pick them up in the Baggage Claim at ORD. This added unnecessary time to the end of my journey. I'll look around at other airlines before I fly United again. Jet Blue, on the other hand (from ORD to FLL) was great!!"
Pros: "Both flights overbooked so finding space on overhead bin was impossible. They boarded us last though we bought the tickets weeks in advance. Could not get seats online, at the kiosks or at the desk. Really fruatrating! My wife and I had to sit apart for the return flight. Will not fly United again unless no choice."
Cons: "We have been members of Star Alliance for over 20 years with millions of miles in the book, and though I have avoid flying with the US companies of the Alliance, we too United round trip to Miami via Fort Lauderdale, flying down I was surprised that with the short flight the in flight entertainment was not free? We paid extra for extra leg room and exit seats, though what was left was given away free, which felt a bit unfair for those who paid in advance extra? Most traumatic was on the return trip, at the gate as we were removed from our prepaid seats, due to the fact that the ground crew checking us in asked us abruptly weather we could assist in the case of emergency, I replied, "Yes", but my partner was confused and did not understood the question nor the context as to what or why she was being asked! As I tried to explained that she was German and that the question had confused her and didn't primped reply, the crew stope us from boarding the flight, and demanded that our seats be changed for someone who could understand English! We explained that we both understood and spoke English perfectly well... But no one was going to reason with us and quickly removed us from our seats and had us put into the back sectioned which was without extralegal room and proceeded to give our seat out to another couple who volunteered... Without charging extra... It was appalling their behavior and unreasonable gestures towards their customers and at that a Gold member of the Alliance. We will no longer book flights with United no matter what comes, even if we have to fly around the world to get there pay triple etc. It felt a hint of racism and with the state of things, I do hope others take heed in consideration of flying with this airline. Thank you"
Pros: "crew, takeoff, landing and flight were good on each flight. no complaints there."
Cons: "from COS to FLL: first flight was late taking off. connecting flight was on time. this is a bad combination. i was literally seconds from missing my connecting flight, and that was after sprinting from one terminal to another. captain on the first flight announced that takeoff was delayed because they were waiting for flight charts to finish downloading. really? WELL THEN GET THERE 20 MINUTES EARLIER AND BE PREPARED TO LEAVE *ON TIME* SO THAT PASSENGERS DON'T MISS (OR NEARLY MISS) THEIR CONNECTIONS!!!"
Pros: "We left bfore time and we arrive befor schedule"
Cons: "Row boarding i was group 5 which boarded last and they forced every one to check his carry on due to no space even if the carry on is small."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "On Friday I was unable to fly to Fort Lauderdale Florida due to airport close due to hurricane. United Airlines refused to refund my money even them knowing there was no way I was able to use the ticket because I never made it to Florida. Airline companies are bunch of thiefs."

Pros: "Efficient, well run. Early ."
Pros: "The gate agent @ Fort Lauderdale was very professional and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly stewardesses, and decent leg room"
Cons: "Terrible experience with my baggage and your company's customer service, or lack thereof of."
Pros: "San Diego to San Fran, San Fran to Fort Laudrrdale great! Flying back thru Houston and San Diego not as good"
Cons: "Flying and landing great Flight attendants not smiling or as attentive as they should be. Seemed to be faking pleasantries getting on and off plane."
Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "I faxed in my companion animal information for approval 2 weeks prior. When I checked in I was told it was never approved. I had to stay on the phone for15 minutes. Then ther screeners delayed me 25 minutes going through my carryon looking at some food items. Because of these delays I missed my flight. Horrible service..."
Pros: "Crew was very cooperative."
Cons: "Seats were not together we were 3 kids and 2 adults all seats were separate. Crew solve the problem anyway."
Pros: "I liked that I had an assigned seat."
Cons: "The teams of employees walking up and down the gangway to check people's carry on baggage. The carry on baggage police. They have a whole system set up to harass customers and strong arm them into paying more fees. So lame. Also we are all sick of baggage fees, paying for wifi and paying extra if you don't want an aisle seat."
Pros: "Clean! Comfortable seats. Crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie choices limited, but even worse was that most of the machines were not working properly (could not read credit card info - so useless!!). And when they did the earphone connection was so poor you could only rarely understand what was being said. Very discouraging for a 5-6 hour flight!!! Fortunately the flight was only half full so I eventually found a monitor that would take my credit card ( after upsetting many folks, including myself, with all the moves ). My ears were mush trying to hear something that made sense ( work fine with my iPod). In the end the stewardess admitted the system was poor and they would be replacing it with a new service. At least then I stopped being frustrated with United. Wish I knew the system name and manufacturer so I could berate them for an inferior product. So sick of this in US. Products that are designed to fail after use - or not built to withstand the use they will be getting."
Cons: "Not having outlets on plane and no TV screens"
