Pros: "Very well looked after, couldn’t ask for more."
Cons: "Nothing, perfection."
Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."
Cons: "The flight crew, check-in agent everyone was awesome and the flight was a real pleasure."
Pros: "The crew was friendly :)"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and beverage service quick. Really hot coffee the best! Great arrival time. I would consider flying Alaska Airlines again."
Cons: "Alaska reassigned my seat to the back wall. Did not recline. Next to the restroom so an intrusive situation. Only 2 items available for PURCHACE on a 745AM departure. Alaska did not tell us baggage claim is in two different terminals or which terminal to use. Seems it could be better organized."
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: "They were friendly."
Cons: "All pluses."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Leg room"

Cons: "Temp was warm"
Pros: "Again I had premium sitting, very comfortable. I did have a meal, coconut chicken and jasmine rice. It was tasty but I wish they had given out a packet of soy sauce."
Cons: "There were fewer people on this flight and I had the whole row to my self. Unfortunately I was in row 6 behind 1st class that had the pullout trays. So I was not able to lift the arms in between the seats and stretch out."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was so great. Really friendly so helpful. I wish I could remember all their names but Ken really stood out. He was such a happy and kind steward."

Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer.. highly recommend"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "You had to pay for food for a 6 hour flight, come on. You had to pay for a tablet to watch movies or tv, Come on. The seats felt thin and for a 6 hour flight, Come on. This is from Sea-tac to Kona."
Cons: "I made the mistake of wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Would have loved a blanket but they don't have any. The crew did ask for the temperature to be increased a bit though. Just a quibble...."
Pros: "Exceptional flight crew - attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Punctuality was excellent! Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There is no entertainment provided and the Wi Fi didn't work at all!"
Pros: "I loved the extra room for feet. And the size of the overhead storage I loved the chocolate treat And the cheery steward chatter on the overhead speaker Best flight experience in many moons Looking forward to next Alaska experience"
Cons: "My seat 12 A. Had no window"
Pros: "The staff was very attentive, friendly, and accommodating! Getting free mai tais half way through the flight was a pleasant surprise."
Pros: "The power outlet..."
Cons: "that it didn't have tight enough holes to hold the plug in place (it would keep falling)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
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: "tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time"
Cons: "flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good seating I didnt assign. Quick in flight beverages offered food,entertainment."
Cons: "Had to purchase food,entertainment, 2/3bathrooms for coach all in the back of cabin none in middle or front."
Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."
Pros: "more legroom, agent allowed me to move to a row with an empty seat."
Cons: "I think the "free" maitai was pretty awful.....would skip it next time. Hardly representative of island quality."
Pros: "Overall the flight was wonderful. Meal and service was good. Checkin was easy!there"
Cons: "There was no one thing that I did not like but noted the boarding pass is used for both segments. Not an issue just did not expect it."
Pros: "I paid for first class and was pulled out of line and told was being moved not asked this happens so many times when I fly alone is embarrassing and not comfortable as I pay the same as them they should have done earlier. also first class wasn't much different as people were coming up non stop for bathroom not sure why.... not to be picky but is not like that on other"

The constant droning on and on about masks is tiring. STOP!

Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"
Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was helpful but left you alone unless you needed something."
Cons: "Travelers who have already had covid need to stop wearing masks!"
Pros: "Clear announcements, nicely stated mask rem8nders, center seats open"
Pros: "Very clean, kind w mask instructions, like boarding back to front"
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"
Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"

Cons: "Didn’t give us seats together"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was clean."
Cons: "No Tvs"
Cons: "1. Board the plane from back to front! It is ridiculous the way it is currently done. 2. Get people to announce boarding who speak CLEAR English. 3. Further limit carry-on luggage."
Cons: "I had a small window for my transfer and Delta gate agents, knowing I was on the way to the gate, closed the gate early now I'm stuck in Detroit for the night at low end economy hotel."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
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: "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: "Departure was right on time and we actually arrived 15 minutes early."
Cons: "The inflight monitor worked but none of the data (GPS altitude or speed) was working."

Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
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."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
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"
Pros: "NothIng"
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: "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: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"
Cons: "I was on the way to the airport when I was notified of the 1st delay. I am sure Delta knew there were issues already and should have let me know earlier in the day. The delays kept increasing. We were offered snacks at the gate. That is it. No free drinks on the plane, no free premium movies. Very bad customer service. More explanations were needed as to the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and uneventful, comfort plus seat was comfy and sky priority lines were nice perk."
Cons: "No food / no entertainment at all. Not that I cared. Ran out of overhead compartment space fast."

Our flight was delayed by 7 hours

Cons: "I don’t think so. Thank you!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, chargers and device holders at search station, very clean and great leg room."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Miami based cabin crew were nice, but they sat in the back of the plane and talked to each other then whole flight. Pretty unprofessional. Chicago based crew from start to finish were fantastic."
Cons: "Miami crew from checkin to boarding were rude, demeaning and unhelpful in this extreme situation. Really rude, particularly the gate boarding pass girl. Haven't you learned your lesson about being rude to passengers yet? I won't be choosing AA again. Your loss, I fly a lot."
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival were on time"
Pros: "They seated my husband and I together. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I’m always in Group 9"

Cons: "Entertainment."
Pros: "Seating had more space, the crew very relaxed and good humour as well as professionalism."
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: "Seat was ok because we paid more or has a “status”"
Cons: "Nothing has changed and nothing will-services is nothing to write home about, with yr little pack of pretzels-i am happy to get safely to my destination and that’s all that matters"
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: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"
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: "The delayed flight was an issue, this caused me to miss my connecting flight. Punctuality is very important to me and should be to your airline."
Pros: "Aircraft looks brand new and it had ton of entertainment videos, games, tv etc."
Cons: "Why did you remove T-Mobile!?? It was the best, bring it back"
Pros: "Because the flight was delayed the captain and crew did everything in their power to get us to Charlotte without any more delay than there already was."
Cons: "Only issue we had is that the flight was delayed, other than it was an okay flight."
Cons: "The airline left my luggage behind at dfw"
Pros: "Boarding is orderly."
Cons: "Why aren’t seniors and parents with little kids allowed extra time to board? You have to pay for WiFi after the first hour? No kosher options for purchase in the food menu, clearly not looking out for all Americans."
Pros: "I like everything ."
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by two hours leaving Fort Lauderdale. As a result of that delay I miss my connecting flight to Palm Springs. 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: "Great service"
Cons: "Canceled flight. Moved us to another flight IN ANOTHER CITY. Changed our second reschedule flight gate from one end of the airport to the other. NONE of the walkways worked. Total unorganized mess - this airline is run like idiots are running it! Very challenging as I have CHF."
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."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Some crew were not very welcoming (smile)."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Seats are getting more and more uncomfortable"
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 seats new"
Cons: "Had to pay for upgrade in order to get a seat. The seat didn't even have extra legroom. Did not get early boardingveitger and I'm even a an advantage cc program holder!!"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with the snacks. I recommend changing to different snack options; perhaps fruit snacks or nuts."
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: "Everything went very smoothly & I plan to book more trips on Kayak in the future."
Pros: "American Airline flight was on time, actually, early departure and early arrival. Crew was friendly and helpful, and I arrived safely. There was room overhead for my carry-on. And I got a great deal thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Crew was excellent on both legs. Pleasant, accommodating. Good overhead storage space. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Cramped! I'm 5'2" and could barely get my underseat bag in and out. Very late boarding and departure. Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. And, of course, we boarded very late."
Cons: "No space in the overhead bin for my section because they were filled with bags that were much bigger than carryon size."
Pros: "On time, pleasant experience."
Cons: "A couple of slightly bumpy patches due to weather, but it was tolerable."
Pros: "On time, good serv in first class."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed over 6 hours for a two hour flight. The only compensation provided was to offer a cup of water. Sad"

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: "Coke"
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."
Cons: "We weren't accommodated when asked to be seated next to each other."
Cons: "Gate person was not friendly or very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything ABOUT THIS AIRLINE SUCKS.. the staff was the worst... no one knew the correct information and I suffered from that... my flight was delayed and a crew member decided that she wanted me to miss my flight... 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."
Pros: "Safe landing in windy conditions."
Cons: "Air-con failure delayed departure. No complimentary food or OH. Poor legroom. Nothing"
Pros: "The seats in premium economy are comfortable and the the entertainment is good"
Cons: "Their was a 3 hour delay but is was for weather conditions in Newark"
Pros: "Nothing at all literaly"
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"
Cons: "Turbulence"
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: "Everything."
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: "The entire crew was so nice! They engaged with everyone!"
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"
