Cons: "Alaska gate agents blamed us for our Supersaver tickets (that were not cheap) for the reason they had our young children sitting on their own in middle seats with strangers. It wasn't until I insisted it wasn't safe that they found a pair of two seats together so each child could be with a parent."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very hectic. This caused the plane to be delayed"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "Everything except ATL maneuvering nightmare. When I deplaned Delta I mistakenly got the Delta flight to Seattle gate info. OK. It turned into a very hard time after that just to obtain correct GATE location for ALASKA AIRLINES flight to Seattle. The mobile check- info was incorrect. Would have saved me the struggle to change terminals and ride escalators with luggage for what seemed like forever."
Cons: "The above"
Pros: "Attendants treat passengers with respect and a smile. A seasoned crew that worked hard the entire flight."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 3 hours. But once it finally got in air flight and service was better than most. Fortunately we have a one day layover so we didn,t miss any connections like others on the flight."
Pros: "On board entertainment options"
Cons: "Limited complimentary snacks, only cookies for a 5 hr flight"
Pros: "Cleanliness, everything at my seat worked, staff were cordial and helpful, plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was too warm. Otherwise it was a wonderful flight!"
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered."
Pros: "Smooth flight, no issues."
Cons: "Wi-Fi options"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "The planes were amazing so comfortable like a brand new car .."
Cons: "OMG scariest flight I had ever been on .... Windy and terrible weather . It’s like a free Mr Toads Wild Ride .. Thanks for getting us home in one piece !!!"
Pros: "One senior flight attendant provided exceptional and memorable customer service. She was extremely positive, professional and reached out to all passengers to ensure their needs were meet. I've been managing customer service experiences for 20+ years and the level of service she provided is invaluable."
Pros: "Checkin was a breeze."
Cons: "The fact I sat in a row with a 15month old little girl who could not say one word plainly. She yelled constantly and when her Mom would say no, she would start crying. Finally fell asleep thirty minutes from destination she fell asleep.?"
Pros: "Once we got on board, The service and flight attendants were great. I liked the snack options - fairly health and non-processed."
Cons: "The two gate agents were quite flustered by our 2.8 hour weather delay. When asked for information or options, one agent completely shut down and just stopped talking / answering questions. What the heck."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "I loved how we got there ahead of schedule by 20 minutes"
Cons: "For a 4.5 hour flight they didn't feed me or anything. Only a drink."
Pros: "Polite cabin crew"
Cons: "No forewarning that you need your own device and an app to watch movies. For flights over 4 hours, airlines should provide as a part of the cost of the flight, a meal."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "food and modern planes , service of staff is very good ."
Cons: "actually nothing"
Pros: "I like the fact that the airline had a very clean plane the flight was wonderful it wasn't a bumpy ride for the days that we flew didn't much like the layovers were too long took away from my time for my vacation so I didn't get the full benefit out of my vacation so I wish that they would offer a straight flight and I may consider Flying Alaska again"
Cons: "The flight from Atlanta to Seattle Washington the flight attendants were very nice except for when we switch planes and from Seattle to Honolulu the flight attendant was very rude that would play a factor if I fly with Alaska again but with that being said I don't think anything would be said to the flight attendants about their attitudes but it plays a big part in your Service"
Pros: "It was early on arrival even. The pilot let us know what was going on all during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was sincerely nice. Breakfast was OK but a bit too simple for a 5plus hour flight. The entertainment system is a tablet you get in first class or you can pay for it in coach. Is loaded with many movies and tv shows"
Cons: "The seats in the first class cabin felt old and some have the cushions so worn that is like seating in a flat chair."
Pros: "They see you as you, not as just another customer."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "It is competitive with other major airlines in quality at a reasonable price."
Cons: "I blame unprofessional attitudes of check in counter staff as the reason for our lost bag. Entertainment required a download on own device, but was not well communicated and on board option was expensive to rent. Food seemed great quality, but I would y know because I wasn't about to pay the outrageous price."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Connection flight was cutting it just a bit too close. It was a 30 minute gap."
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."
Cons: "All legs of my trip from San Jose to Seattle to Philadelphia and back were all delayed; so much so that on the trip to Philadelphia, I had to be rebooked on Delta; and on the trip back to Seattle, I almost missed my flight due to a 50 minute delay on the runway waiting. I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly and funny, gave us extra pretzels:) Also aircraft were new and clean."
Cons: "Not enough gluten free options"
Cons: "When changing planes, my suitcase did not come with me"
Pros: "Flying with Alaska Airlines brings back the sense of how flying is an extraordinary, dignified experience, the feeling of back in the day you would give the pilot an applause for a smooth landing just like at a concert opera."
Pros: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "Attentive staff. Generally clean. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wish there was more complimentary meals. Though they did offer us free cheese plate due to Christmas which was nice!"
Pros: "Moved quickly and in orderly fashion served in the air timely manner"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was to hot and air vents did not work as well as other airlines. With so many on board the heat gets hotter over long periods of time Like with this 5+ hr flight"
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
Pros: "Charging ports were helpful"
Cons: "Flights attendant was rude"
Cons: "The wifi was ridiculously expensive and the free entertainment options were a joke. Add that to the fact that even without the flight being completely full we were all super tightly packed and the absent-minded crew it was a disappointing experience. Unfortunately this time of year there aren't really any other options to connect through to Juneau without going through two separate airlines."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."
Pros: "Food was close by."
Cons: "The chargers in the chairs didn't work."
Pros: "I'm not normally an avid traveller, but in this last week, I've had the opportunity to fly on four different airlines. By far, the best airline ive flown upon was alaska. customer service was so friendly from start to finish, the employee who checked in our luggage (who was incredibly professional with an very frustrated guest behind me in line, while managing to not alienate my wife and i), ro the flight attendants who were prompt, responsive, and efficient in hydrating the passengers. My wife is uncomfortable with flying, and their demeanor with every aspect of their work made her feel safer and, at least, a little bit more relaxed. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing, every point of my intreactions with Alaska Airlines were excellent or better."
Pros: "The over all experience was great!! The only drawback was the connecting flights were so close we literally had to run to the gate and they had already begun to board the plane. But we made it, just was very stressful."
Cons: "The close connection flight times."
Pros: "Seats and service is great in business class"
Cons: "Longue could be better in Seattle"
Cons: "Boarding members kept me for no reason to my Cary on bag"
Pros: "Great crew. Quick service."
Cons: "Plane is a bit older with tiny tv screens."
Pros: "Nothing really. It was as expected, but not more."
Cons: "Seats were cramped for all the talk of legroom"
Pros: "The general experience was mostly the same as usual except for the extremely long delay caused by weather (out of the airline's control)."
Cons: "JetBlue staff at ATL never once updated passengers on the delay. The overhead space filled up too quickly during boarding and I was forced to check carry-on without time to secure or gather my effects. JetBlue baggage claim staff at JFK were then purposefully misleading and evasive."
Pros: "This time within the last couple months the trip a lot better."
Cons: "Not taking over 5 hours to get to my destination."
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not experience any disturbance."
Pros: "All my needs were met, but at times I did feel like staff were perhaps “inconvenienced/annoyed” by my frequent requests for water. I drank alcohol and thus wanted to stay as hydrated as possible. Also, the seat belt thing/issue. FAA or someone needs to review and update the bathroom policy. Consuming water is vital for our bodies and we need to be in situations that allow us to do so and also allow us easy access to flush out our toxins/liquids."
Cons: "Entertainment System wasn’t working properly. Movies were down as were many of the channels. Although a disappointment, JetBlue is still amazing!"
Cons: "Nobody speaks english. Announcement also in Portuguese. Very difficult for foreigners. Gate people are awful."
Cons: "Our flight out of Atlanta was delayed twice, and eventually cancelled due to mechanical problems - this caused us to miss our connecting flight from JFK to TLV. We had to rescheduled our flights (slow and convoluted route): Atlanta, Boston, Newark, Tel Aviv. We are presently in Boston."
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "The entertainment system was missing at my seat. It was also down for the entire plane. The crew missed my row for drinks."
Pros: "Comfort in seats and friendly service"
Cons: "TV movie music"
Cons: "There was no one sitting on the chairs behind us. We asked the attendant if we could sit since our sits were full. Anyways hope next time if the door is closed and passengers are tight they could sit on empty sits ."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was freezing for the first hour it was only when passengers had to ask it to warm up"
Cons: "The door wouldn’t open once we arrived in Detroit"
Pros: "Nice plane, amenities"
Cons: "Better information about perpetual delays - honesty about delay. Information to respond appropriately."
Pros: "Loved the movie and tv show selections available"
Cons: "Direct TV did not work for me. Really wanted to watch the AFC championship football game but I couldnt because direct tv wasnt working."
Pros: "The landing was excellent. The crew just okay , not warm or serving well."
Cons: "The movie too old movie and the device hard to use e.g. change the movie from channel 1 from first movie to the second movie. The attendant not give my request (water) until I need to walk myself to the back."
Pros: "I boarded fast"
Cons: "flight attendant was moddy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"
Pros: "Wi fi and the tv made the time pass quick , seats were big , flight was quick"
Pros: "The seating space was just right, and thanks for the complimentary Sprite."
Cons: "The wifi/ flyfi did not work. The directv screen kept going offline. The complementary cookies ran out"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "We wasnt told how to use the tvs and where to put earbuds."
Pros: "Good snacks, was switched to an “even more space” seat"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification, got at email with delay notification but no information that the gate was moved from 5 to 25 until I went up to ask the desk staff since my departure wasn’t showing on the screen. Very loud engine for some reason. No USB a chargers on plane is old school"
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight. I generally fly Delta but I was really impressed with so many features this flight had to offer. Free television with movies and free WiFi. The staff was very friendly and the snacks actually were some of the things I get at home. I will fly jet blue in the future!"
Pros: "We upgraded to the “extra legroom” seats and they were so comfortable. The free entertainment was very nice and made the flight time pass quickly. The crew was friendly, attentive, and kind. We are looking forward to flying with them again."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The usual negatives with discount airlines- pay for seats, food, ear buds etc. free snacks available and excellent."
Pros: "JetBlue has always been decent. I like that this trip the flight was an easy board on and off."
Cons: "With all Planes now it seems the seats are for quantity and less quality. So it's fairly uncomfortable to sit in them. Plus when you have back problems that doesn't help. Cheap ticket will equal a cheap seat."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, on time and efficient. The crew was friendly and they moved quickly in the cabin so not to disturb people sleeping on such an early flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "There wasn’t a thing that needed to be fixed. Future airlines."
Pros: "Legroom, free movies, and the crew members were courteous, and professional."
Cons: "They only offered chips as snacks; I wish there were really foods I could order."
Cons: "We were delayed due to poor weather on takeoff and on landing due to airport traffic."
Pros: "Jet Blue was GREAT- as usual. I want you to know that getting through security in ATL airport was an ordeal. Incredibly long lines, disorganized (a sign clearly said, TSA Pre-check- line up here) and then the people managing the lines yelling at us (and this is an observation) because they wanted us lined up further back. This was baffling because the actual line into the TSA space was empty at that point. I think the ATL security staff could all benefit from some further training about to work with people effectively AND ATL airport needs to look at their systems. I know it's a busy airport, but there has to be something better than what they are doing now!"
Pros: "My partner and I bought extra legroom seats we could sit together. They were expensive but nice. The crew was very friendly and tried to help with my broken screen/entertainment system. When the attendant couldn't fix it, she said she could offer me a cocktail but since it was 10:30 am, it was kind of hard to justify."
Cons: "It's a first world problem to have a broken personal entertainment system at your jet seat so, of course, one keeps these things in perspective. I mention it only because this flight was relatively expensive ... and I was really looking forward to watching The Greatest Showman. :-)"
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "By the time we boarded in row 8 all overhead bins were full thru row 16. Made getting off more difficult when we had to get our carryons"
Pros: "I like the new collaborative coffee option at the gate and the get-your-own-snacks option upon boarding."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and we arrived early with no problems. Wasn't expecting even snacks/drinks on a 45 minute flight, but they served them. Crew was even more friendly and helpful than usual."
Cons: "E-mailed me advertising a free drink on BOS-->LGA flights, but I didn't see that."
Pros: "Landed early and safe"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 80 mins and then we had to taxi for an additional 45 mins. We were supposed to arrive at 9:40, we did not get off the flight until 11:45pm."
Pros: "Polite crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Smell in the air"
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good wifi most of the flight. Usual JetBlue professionalism."
Cons: "Not JetBlue's fault but we had to wait on the runway about 45 minutes because of weather issues up north. Otherwise a great flight."
Staff was super nice, helpful and funny. Wish they provided headphones
Checked luggage took really really long - like an hour or more after landing - to get to baggage claim
Cons: "My sister’s checked in luggage was in poor shape when we got it in Albany. We noticed an outside compartment was unzipped. So we checked to see if anything was missing and a souvenir from Mexico was gone. Then we realized a zipper was missing from the luggage and then decided to check all the other compartments and realized her bag of jewelry was gone. The woman at baggage services in Albany told us Delta is not responsible for lost belongings. Also tried to tell us theft is not an issue because there are cameras everywhere. Well you are telling someone that is missing a bag of jewelry that theft is not a problem. Also, there may be cameras everywhere but I doubt anyone is going to review those cameras to see what happened. I will never fly Delta again."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "48 hours travel from Europe Thanks to sucky Delta airlines that are absolutely the most horrible company Never ever again"
Pros: "Crew was gr8, seats comfy and space between seats was great, great space for legs"
Cons: "The quality of the forks and knife, I had meat for dinner and the fork broke two times. Coffee needs to be a little more stronger. Keep it up!"
Pros: "Like the “lanes” for boarding; however, there was no announcement so some people did not know and did not line up and just cut in between those who had. Biscoff cookies are always appreciated."
Cons: "The WiFi was very cumbersome to use, despite the instructions. The monitors had a marked delay when touched, making the entertainment a challenge to use."
Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day. I bought the whole international business ticket to Peru together, I don't understand why Delta consider my first portion not part of my international ticket!"
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful!"
Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Cons: "We shared beverages The bathroom was barely big enough for a small person There isn’t enough room per passenger seat"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Cons: "We landed hours late and sat on runway for 1 hour. On top of that this plane was our 3rd equipment change."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Beautiful new plane with large overhead storage, comforable seats and moveable aisle armrest."
Pros: "Nice equipment for the ride and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make sure they got the plane ready as quickly as possible and get us to Jacksonville as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Delta lost the plane for over an hour. After already spending 10 hours in ATL because of an earlier delay due to human error I was extremely disappointed in Delta that my flight out of Atlanta was delayed by an hour because they LOST the plane and couldn’t find it or the truck to bring it to the gate. This kind of error on Xmas eve is embarrassing. Delta didn’t do anything for the passengers affected by this. I was dumbstruck by the apathy of the Delta employees at the gate (the exception was the flight crew, who tried to get the aircraft there earlier). Because Delta did nothing but make error after error I arrived at home 11 hours later than my original flight was booked for on Christmas Eve, missing Christmas Eve Services and family traditions. When I need to get somewhere on time I’ll never rely on Delta after this experience."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Cons: "I understand delays happen, but Delta delayed the flight significantly and only informed customers around the time they had arrived at the airport - especially for an early morning flight, where you are counting on being able to sleep on the plane ASAP, that is absolute hell. If they had messaged even 30 mins earlier, we could have rescheduled our cab and slept at the hotel given we were on 2 hours sleep. We received the text 3 minutes before we arrived at the airport and tried to sleep on benches as the front desk kept delaying the boarding time by 20 minutes 4 times, each time exactly at the previously extended ETD, which is far more frustrating than if they had just extended it once by 80 minutes so we could legitimately relax."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Very friendly crew - clear communication & updates regarding delays."
Cons: "No tv, which is okay, but if you offer wifi to watch movies/shows on your phone, really need outlets to charge the phone! Or at least a few radio station to plug headphones into."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"
Pros: "Flight late 46 minutes, they forgot I asked for a vegetarian meal, my business class round ticket to Peru did not gave me acceds"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Pros: "Nothing to like -- didn't fly"
Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Pros: "Flight crew were good."
Cons: "My checked baggage did not make it on this flight even though it was checked in over an hour before the flight. I have been getting the runaround at the Baggage Claim area and on the phone. It may be delivered tomorrow afternoon and I have food items in the baggage and it may not be delivered until the afternoon of the next day. They don’t have a good baggage tracking system."
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "On time departure. Meal service."
Cons: "on time departure"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, some staff I dealt with to rebook had some attitude issues, others where fine. Overall not very transparent throughout the process. Definitely could've been much more helpful."
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "The greatest part of the trip for me was the smooth landing."
Cons: "I wanted a voucher ride but they only needed a few volunteers."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"
Cons: "At 12:40 p.m. we boarded American Airlines flight 1350 in ATL, just to SIT on plane for 1 1/2 hours (half the time with NO AIR). Computer problems. Had to get off plane, then had to wait in 3 lines. Agents were so UNPROFESSIONAL! Kept saying flight would go... DID NOT go until another plane came in at 9:00 PM! We, needless to say missed our connecting flight to SYDNEY and had to wait til next day and fly to SAN FRANCISCO, then to MELBOURNE, then on to Christchurch. We MISSED out on TWO DAYS of our short trip! which included missed reservations!!"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Pros: "Size of the plane and smooth ride"
Cons: "Enormous delay"
Pros: "We took off on time and landed about 45 minutes early. That was great"
Cons: "My bags were lost and didn't arrive in New York with. They were not delivered until 1am that night."
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "Quickness of flight once up in the air"
Cons: "Getting stuck at gate waiting for air traffic control to find/make the flight a new flight plan"
Pros: "The actual crew on the plane were great"
Cons: "On my trip to Atlanta from new York the gate staff were horrible. Nasty attitudes and forced me to check in a bag that is made and approved by airlines to be considered a carry-on making me miss my 6 am flight to then book me on a 930am flight that was delayed for about an hour. I've never experienced this with any other airline before. Very disappointed"
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "For the most part the trip was wonderful."
Cons: "I was unhappy because every leg of my journey I was being charged for my baggage. I thought this was unfair. Those working with customer service was not helpful either. They were frustrated and thus frustrated me. In addition my flight was late leaving the airport and the captain nor the stewardesses gave an explanation. This was unacceptable. We were late over hour."
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "The flight staff had an amazing energy about them especially for 7am. They didn't do anything above or beyond but they extremely pleasant, energetic, and courteous. The pilots also pulled off the one of the smoothest landings ever."
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
Cons: "The crew was late arriving to the gate which delayed boarding and then the plane had an electrical problem that could not be quickly fixed so had to deplane, go to another gate and board another plane. We were an hour and a half late leaving."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "We couldn't go to the bathroom. That's right, you read that right, the bathroom on the plane was broken. Also, we left ATL 30min late."
Pros: "The female flight attendant attempted to fill the shortcoming of her coworker"
Cons: "Condescending attitude towards bodies on the flight from the male flight attendant"
Pros: "I like that the crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "That I was there and hour before my flight and my seat was given up. I didn't like that people are allowed to retract all the way making my flight uncomfortable."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The flight board on time, the crew was hospitable and seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Respesv your promise for the bording time"
Cons: "When the crew bothering me"
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "We didn't leave on time"
Cons: "Take off could have been better. It was delayed, but pilot helped resolve the problem; so, it was fine."
Pros: "Crew was above and beyond. Really helpful and kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Did not really like it."
Cons: "More communication from the boarding staff. The delays kept increasing. Due to weather, we were delayed 4 hrs. They only decided to accommodate everyone with water and snacks 3 hrs into the delay."
Pros: "The seat for United First is really comfortable and the in-flight dinner for the route was pretty good."
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with adequate cushioning."
Cons: "The drinks served in plastic cups were tiny."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed, staff wasn’t very helpful when I was getting rebooked"
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service. Flight was on time. Crew was very nice. Food was great too."
Pros: "The gate staff really worked to re-route the whole passenger group after a missing part grounded the plane for the whole day. They kept their cool and were great."
Cons: "How could it be that United could not even find a single airplane part in Atlanta for a whole day, making us miss our flight to Honolulu and stranding us in San Francisco overnight. Then finally on arrival at SF one member of United’s Customer Service was rude, causing me to totally lose my temper, which I never do. I always try to avoid United, made an exception, and paid for it."
Pros: "Not many passengers on plane."
Cons: "Three hours late taking off."
Pros: "Flight crew was polite"
Cons: "Took forever to board and exit the plane"
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Pros: "United did a great job keeping us informed of where the plane was and why we were being delayed. Only 15 minutes late. But staff explained why and I think this helps ease people's anxiety. Inflight wifi was awesome!"
Pros: "Smooth flight esp getting people in and out"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "Good crew."
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Cons: "I have pictures and video of how dirty the plane was from the air vent all the way to the floor so disgusting do you guys ever clean the planes"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight didn't offer PDE"
Cons: "It was not a good experience at all. Honestly, I wanted my money back. I sent United this letter, but no one is gotten back to me yet. Hello, my name is David Larkins. I have had literally the worst airline experience of my life today with United airlines. With confirmation number BS2EL9, my flight was set to go from Atlanta to Burbank, with a connection in San Francisco. The flight from Atlanta was delayed about 10 minutes, however, they assured us that we would arrive in San Francisco at the correct time of 9:39 AM with enough time to get to our connecting flights. They lied. Whereas we did arrive in San Francisco at around 9:39 AM, the plane taxied for approximately 15 or more minutes before letting anyone off of the plane. Still, I ran to my connecting flight before it left the runway at 10:10am. However, I was not permitted to step onto the plane by the fellow at the gate at the time. He told me that because boarding time was over at 9:55a, he would not let me step on the plane even though it was still on the runway. I was upset. I went to customer service and explained my situation to them. Speaking with a girl named Krystin S., I explained that I really needed to get to Burbank on time, before 2 o'clock. Today, I had a final for school, a meeting, and interview with a job, and I had to drop my dog off at the vet for an appointment which costed around $150. Krystin told me that there was nothing she could do, and offered me only a meal voucher. I was offended, and declined the voucher. I then spoke to customer service and they told me there was nothing they could do after informing me that the flight that they switched my flight to was delayed yet another hour and I would not arrive until 350pm. This is absolutely unacceptable, and I need a remedy. Far larger than a simple meal voucher. I have lost more money by missing my flight to Burbank because of the Atlanta airport lying to me then the flight was even worth. Also, I requested to speak to someone, but the representative on the phone said they didn't have a phone number to speak to anyone which adds to the cumbersome nature of this issue. Please contact me back, as soon as possible. I'm very upset at the situation. David Larkins"
Pros: "Everyone working the flight was wonderful"
Cons: "United, once again, was late and delayed."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, courteous, and welcoming."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating. Fell straight to sleep"
Pros: "They let people get on with oversize bags when sequence 4&5 get on there's no room left"
Pros: "This regional airplane was extremely comfortable! The flight was comfortable and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation."
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable than the regional jet and I was able to get some rest."
Cons: "The staff member in the boarding gate was very unorganised she was announcing incorrectly two times , which make the passengers confused. Leg room inside the flight was to tight."
Pros: "I appreciated the seat assigned to me was directly behind first class; gave me more leg room."
Pros: "It got to me to Atlanta fine. But going back to Newark was a nightmare."
Cons: "When I checked in at Newark, I upgraded my seat from 22 B to 7B for $55. I also paid $25 for my small piece of luggage. I was told there may be a lot of suitcases and it was better to check it. When on the plane, a stewardess came up to me and asked to see my boarding pass (which was scanned when I got onto the plane.) I gave it to her and she never returned it to me. I get an EMAIL while in Atlanta, saying my seat on the flight was canceled because I was a NO SHOW on the 27th to go down to Atlanta. I had the receipt of my seat upgrade, my receipt for the checked luggage, and the tag on the luggage. I called United who said I wasn't on the plane. After a long conversation, she said she fixed it. I get to the Atlanta airport on 10/31, and I was not in the system. I had to get a supervisor and they said my seat was gone and I may not be able to get back to NJ that day. After the agent called United Headquarters, they finally got me on the plane. I was told once again I should check my luggage and shelled out another $25. I then get to the gate, and the agent at the gate was asking for 10-20 people to check their luggage for FREE. That was it for me. I will not fly United again, and have already requested that my Executive Admin's not use United and use other airlines when they book business trips because I would hate for anyone to have to go through what I did. I am 44, have been flying since I was 5, and have never had anything like this happen and don't want it to happen to anyone else I know. I was disgusted by the whole situation."
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and very early for arrival."
Cons: "Boarding agents and cabin crew didn't convey a friendly tone. Multiple announcements made about keeping the boarding lanes clear and roller bags needing to be checked though some space in the overheads remained available. A full flight in the same plane from Denver seems to have plenty of overhead space, but a full plane leaving Atlanta runs out early?"
Cons: "In general, all the crew and counter people are not able to say "good morning" or smile, besides a delayed flight made a really bad experience"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and lots of leg room. I was not crowded at all. It was so nice to not feel cramped and to have plenty of room around me. It was one of the most comfortable flights I have experienced in years!"
Cons: "I did not like the idea of having passengers wait so long to board the plane. I already had a stressful day before arriving the airport and did not need any more delays."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "The flight attendant at the door when boarding didn't smile or say anything to me, I was the one that greeted her!! Plus she was the same the whole flight like she had somewhere better to be!!"
Pros: "I really liked the United Staff in Houston."
Cons: "My flight to San Francisco was delayed and the gate agents were frustrated overwhelmed and provided poor customer service."
Pros: "I hadn't been on a United flight in quite some time but gosh this flight was awesome. Very comfortable lots of overhead bin space even had in flight entertainment. Would love to start back flying United more frequently"
Cons: "I truly have no dislikes so I can't come up with 50 characters I don't think"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to not enough staff and it caused me to miss out on money and I wasted my time because I was not informed until 7hours later"
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Pros: "I liked the staff. Everyone was nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The ride was a bit bumpy, but sometimes that's uncontrollable."
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
Pros: "Being upgraded"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Pros: "The boarding process was very simple and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There are great entertainment options for in flight viewing, but there is no warning ahead of time that additional applications have to be downloaded in order to use them. At 30,000 feet it is impossible without paying for wifi. Also, I was actually looking forward to the little snack sized peanuts. Instead, you're given a salty trail mixed something that's seasoned very heavily. It just made me want to sneak water from the drink cart rather than curbing my hunger."
Pros: "you guys have tvs in the headrest and its spacious in the seating area. you all treated me way better than spirit airlines!"
