Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "There was someone who worked at the ticket counter on gate B9 who was so sweet, friendly and competent. Not only was she pleasant and quick to everyone she encountered but she helped my daughter and I get seated together. Unfortunately I didn’t get her name...."
Cons: "Not much really. It was a great flight."
Pros: "Was one of the best flights I’ve had. Service was really good and enjoyed the complimentary cocktails"
Cons: "We would have loved more of a meal during the flight."
Pros: "I like the options they provide for food and love the charging stations on the seats."
Cons: "I found the aisle seats to be more uncomfortable than the inner seats. There was less room under the seat for baggage and feet and I got my elbow banged pretty bad by a cart (I had fallen asleep). I also think it is lame to be charged for basically everything but a drink and a cracker on a 5+ hour flight. We get nickle and dimed for everything. $10 for each food item, $10 for a movie screen (what happened to the good old days with free in flight movies?). We have to pay to check luggage ($25 bucks). We normally avoid flying if humanly possible because it is in general too much stress and too expensive but we prefer Southwest airlines if they will go to our destination. Bags are included with their tickets!"
Pros: "The flight was OK except that they ran out of food to sell and apparently you could order ahead of time but at least for us in the back of the plane was nothing left."
Pros: "What did I like about my flight?...Not much! Was not allowed to pick seat assignment during reservations.Called two days before returning for seat assignment...Told must do at airport day of. Arrived at airport 6 hours early day of and was assigned 31F (only32rows) tried to change as I really wanted near front, isle seat... was turned down but guy and wife in line behind me changed thier's from back to row 6.... I endured 31F surrounded by sick coughing, sniffing, snotty nosed, sneezing people and crying children for next 6 hours...I've been back almost a week and just now feeling well enough to venture out...I will never travel Alaska airlines if they won't give me an acceptable seat assignment... Hawaiian Airlines trip there was wonderful!"
Pros: "As always, your staff were courteous, and professional. I appreciate how some flight attendants add personal flair to the safety briefings. Some would say it's unprofessional, but I think it is very valuable, because the more entertaining the attendants are, the more people pay attention to the safety briefing. I loved it. It also builds a trust relationship where passengers are more likely to follow instructions if there was an emergency."
Cons: "I don't like paying $25 to check my luggage, and then see people checking their bags at the gate for free. I don't care for pretzels, so I wish there was another option for a complimentary snack. Not a huge deal, though."
Pros: "We sat in the emergency exit row. There is much more leg room."
Cons: "The seats only recline 2 inches."
Pros: "We have been traveling to Hawaii and especially Kauai for years. We love the fact that we don't have to fly into Honolulu and transfer to the Inter-Island Terminal with Alaska. This saves a lot of time and there is a lot less hassle. We upgraded to Preferred Seats which are in the Exit Rows and with the extra leg room, it is really nice especially if you have someone in the window seat. We don't eat anything on the plane because we usually head to our favorite restaurant once we land."
Cons: "The only thing I don't like is that the seats are not as padded as they use to be. With a 4-1/2 hr. flight, they become really hard. I am planning on taking a seat cushion with me the next time I fly."
Cons: "No free movies anymore"
Pros: "price and schedule; about as short a flight as you can get with one stop"
Cons: "on board entertainment was pretty light unless you rented one of their digital devices"
Pros: "Clean plane. Friendly accommodating staff."
Pros: "Efficient and comfortable. I cannot rank food or entertainment as I slept this entire leg. The crew appeared to do a marvelous job jockeying passengers with all there carry-ons during the boarding process. Quite professional."
Pros: "Totally Everything About Alaska Airlines Was Awesome !"
Cons: "First off the back flight attendants were rude. When I got up to use the restroom unfortunately it was while they were still serving drinks, I was in seat 6F and I said excuse me to see if I can pass them to use the restroom but I was ignored. So I patiently stand behind them until about row 20 and at this point the lady says oh just use first classes restrooms so I go. While in first class that attendant says I can't use this one and then another one tells me just go ahead by time I get back to my seat the cpatian comes on the intercom to tell everyone rows 6-30 something to only use the back 3 lavatories.. On top of that the hot plates made me and my husband sick!"
Pros: "Personal entertainment iPads are nice options to rent for the flight duration."
Cons: "I had a window seat - 10A, except there was no window, just s blank wall space. Needless to say, 5 hr flight felt very long."
Pros: "They were able to switch me to a aisle seat last minute. Clean plane."
Cons: "Female flight attendant ( don't know her name but she was wearing little eyeglasses,) was not very nice. I asked her what kind of juice she had and she grabbed the card from the seat in front of me and without saying a word stuck it in my face. Very impatient. she seem to be in a hurry so I was irritated and asked her to just give me a water. When I asked for water, she replied by saying "After all of that, that's all you want? ". Very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "On time (or early). Very friendly service. Power outlets for each seat. Free Mai Tai on return to Honolulu. Chicken meal for purchase was tasty and appropriate value. Fast baggage service. Ticket fare was below other airlines."
Cons: "No included entertainment. I know it's the norm for the industry, but beverage service is infrequent and pretzels hardly do much to curb appetite. Offering drinks for purchase more frequently would be nice. Coach seats were not uncomfortable but they are rarely wide or have enough leg room to score a 5 on comfort."
Pros: "Lots of legroom and seats seemed roomier than other airlines in coach, staff was friendly, good price for tickets"
Cons: "Snack box I bought was nothing to get excited about, though the Mediterranean might have been the healthiest option, it wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. The crackers were the best part of the box. I did not want to pay $10 to watch movies on a tiny tablet, so opted out of he entertainment."
Pros: "Overall good trip"
Cons: "that there were no blankets available"
Pros: "All real good price"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food. you can have better service for the same price in another airline"
Pros: "I always love the food in first class on Alaska. Great crew."
Cons: "Rattle and vibration noise on lift off in plane. Don't know where it came from but as much as I fly, I've never heard it before."
Pros: "I was allowed to change my seat online before flight to a preferred location."
Cons: "Players handed out on plane- I think they ran out before they got to me, or not offered- was unaware of price, etc... Unclear that snack tray contained other than snacks, may have purchased food if aware of offerings- maybe should have read AK air mag in seat pocket?"
Pros: "I was able to sneak onto this flight thanks to the crew. I was booked for a later flight that day and got to the airport early enough to jump on a much earlier one. Those snack packs you sell are just amazing. I wish I had one right now!"
Cons: "I was stuck next to someone who stank already without having a bad problem with passing gas later in the flight, but that's not the airline's fault. Still, made the ride a bit rough for me. After a while I became less discreet about covering my nose."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Old plane - small and cramped."
Pros: "Pilot was fantastic and explained everything clearly."
Cons: "Chairs were small not enough elbow room"
Pros: "Friendly, charging outlets at every seat"
Pros: "The flight attendants service was on point since the plane was delay."
Cons: "The plane was delay for over 2 hours. Thank god my lay over 10 hours. I could image how bad it was for the ones who missed there connecting flight."
Pros: "I slept most the time and occasionally woke up to eat (you gonna pay FYI) and drinks (complimentary) not liquor Overall it was a pleasant flight...I ate...I went to sleep no issues but I was late to my plans in San Diego due to the delays..."
Cons: "Delayed on boarding and than delayed on landing...if you have an Apple iPad or phone you would've to download an app on the ground so before take off in order to watch movies while flying so basically I wasn't able to view any of the entertainment inflight because I didn't have the gogo app on my phone/ipad and my flight was at least 5 to 6 hr HI to San Diego...plus internet was unavailable throughout entire flight...woke up and first thing I saw was a flight attendant picking of her food from her teeth using her fingers not just for a few seconds but minutes and it didn't even phase her loll smh"
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants and the customer service that was provided to me before I boarded the flight. They did an excellent job."
Cons: "I did not like having to ride the middle seat. Hopefully next time I travel alone I'm lucky enough to get the window or aisle seat."
Cons: "It's too packed in the main cabin lose a vertical row so there is more space. It's just overwhelming"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "I found nothing to disparage on this flight."
Cons: "1 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Changed gate, very late."
Pros: "The grew"
Pros: "Phone chargers! Best idea ever"
Cons: "When the flight attendants came thru with dinner offers I was not offered a dinner. When they came thru with drinks I said yes but I also wanted a dinner but wss not offered one. The attendant was very hostile and said well there are a lot of you and only a few of us. We're gonna miss some people. What do you want I can get it. But it wasn't a friendly offer, it sounded more resentful. This was an almost 6 hour flight. Later when they went thru again to offer snacks they made a big production to ask me loudly if I wanted one. Even opening her eyes very widely and saying are you sure? I could tell it was because I had complained earlier. But I didn't even really complain. I just said I didn't get offered a meal, on an almost 6 hour flight, and I wanted one."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the row where I was placed at didn't have reclinable chairs."
Pros: "I like how the flights don't get over booked."
Cons: "I got and am still very sick from a whole family that was sitting to the side of me. They were coughing and choking and looked miserable I feel sorry for the people that were sitting in front of them that were getting coughed on I feel when someone showing that much sickness the flight attendants should I have them wear masks because now me and who knows how many other people got sick because of them or at least offer the healthy people the masks Nothing bad on the airline part but for the sake of their passengers that would have been nice ."
Pros: "Comfortable seats for sleeping/built in headrests. Free entertainment. American codeshare plane."
Pros: "The fact that I was able to sleep part of the flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, appreciated the text updates letting me know the flight was delayed, crew was friendly and awesome."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a pillow and blanket on such a long flight, but no complaints. Will make sure I take one next time."
Pros: "I noticed some flight crews did real good jobs as much as they can within limited resource to help sick woman passenger during the flight."
Cons: "I understand that all things that happened during the flight is NOT crews fault or they had control of the situations. Here are some I have experienced: 1. Plane took off almost two hour later/delay due mechanical, paper works and refueling problems according to the captain. 2. During the over 5 hours flight, passengers had to suffer almost 3 hours of hard air turbulence. 3. A passenger with medical problem during the flight had to treated by another passenger (doctor) and our plane landed in emergency. The flight was one of the worst I have had so far. I will rethink before choose Alaska next time."
Pros: "The Alaska flight was on time and arrived in Bellingham on time. They was no delays or hitches. The flight was very full and one of the bathroom did not work. Some of the attendants was not very professional."
Pros: "Quick flight. Other then takeoff smooth flight."
Cons: "Picked seats in 20's but got seat on back and accross from rest rooms. Flight attendants were right behind me and their family's were on the flight and they were loud the hole time talking and laughing in the back or the plane. Also in and out of overhead bumping into me over and over. Also had people bump into me so they could walk by. Totally disrespectful and rude to a lot of the people on board. Also had family in back of plane talking to them and takeing up room and being loud in the rest room in back of plane."
Pros: "Check-in at the Honolulu Airport was good and ground crew were very helpful. It was a red-eye flight, so did not eat or use any onboard entertainment. Overall a very good experience with Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."
Pros: "When I asked for a seat change the crew was very accommodating"

Cons: "Drink service"
Cons: "movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "Space on airplanes"
Pros: "Wonderful hospitality, excellent service!! Clean, well thought meal service."

Cons: "The audio jack of the movie is not good It's on & off seems loose"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn't get to continue the series I started watching on an earlier flight, as this plane had more limited options. We also waited on the tarmac an long time before take-off, waiting for a part to be delivered to our plane so we could take it to Indianapolis with us."
Pros: "Good crew, my seat did NOT recline."
Cons: "Plane was somewhat crowded."
Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."
Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth take-off and landing, and gluten-free meal available (ordered before through Delta.com). Alcohol was available at each drink service."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks, lack of gluten-free awareness by crew, and gluten-free meal had an apple instead of the (gluten-free) ice cream bar the other meals included for the dessert."
Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "The service on our flight was absolutely amazing, the food was surprisingly great, and the long ride was as comfortable as it could have been in an economy booking."
Cons: "My entertainment pad malfunctioned the whole time, even after it was reset. Thankfully I had enough things to keep me busy on my own, but it still would have been nice to have."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Pros: "1000s of movies and shows to watch. Plenty of overhead bin storage. Alcohol beverage service included. Crew was great."
Cons: "Baked chicken dinner was gross."
Pros: "staff was good, flight was not so good"
Cons: "Hated the storm we flew through, luggage came out of overheads....ugh"
Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."
Cons: "Bad turbulence"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "I'll chalk it up to the insanely high travel demands coincident with Labor Day."
Pros: "The staff was so friendly, and funny!! Loved the movies offered and snack choices. Updated aircraft"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Pros: "Delta has always be a step above the rest. Traveling with my children is not a problem and frowned upon with Delta. I rarely choose competitive airlines and will continue to use Delta as much as possible."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and quick. I like the coffee when I pair it with a biscoff."
Cons: "The boarding process seems a bit chaotic, but it didn't really detract from the overall experience."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Gate rep helped us kindly and then the flight attendant was very friendly."
Pros: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Pros: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."
Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "Had to buy a one-way ticket on American, as Delta would not move me to another airline,"
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."
Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."
Pros: "1st class service was excellent."
Cons: "The food in 1st class does not compare to some competitor airlines. the leather seats do not breath and can sometimes get hot."
Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."
Pros: "Easy boarding, good wifi."
Cons: "Two hour mechanical delay, seemed like they waited forever for paperwork. Then rough weather, so bouncing all over. And on top of it, no peanuts."
Pros: "Flight attendant was really funny!"
Pros: "Crew was VERY friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No changing table in restroom made it hard to change infant."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly during the very short flight."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable - not a lot of padding."
Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "I didn't fly from LA to Indianapolis"
Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."
Pros: "Smooth. We will definitely fly AA again."
Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."
Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"
Cons: "Why are seats so small?"
Cons: "Charlotte lost my bag and will not answer"
Cons: "The flight was late with no explanation. The incoming equipment was at the gate in time."
Cons: "All Excellent"
Cons: "Sat on the ramp for an hour with no A/C, no water. Jaded crew. Not good overall."
Cons: "see above."
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
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: "We had some light turbulence but other than flight was great."
Pros: "Power kept me working, big value to me"
Pros: "Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early"
Cons: "Runway time in New York"
Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."
Pros: "unAnnounced gate change"
Cons: "Running in airport"
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly - which is something I have noticed between AA and United. United seems to be much more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "On time Friendly attendants Great service Mike in First Class was awesome"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Stewardess were not very friendly. Plane apparence inside was not updated needs overall refurbish Having to pay extra for 1st luggage and seat selection"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Cons: "The gate the flight was originally on changed, however there was never an announcement made over the intercom advising of the change. When the gate I was waiting at finally showed the flight information to Toledo, I had to find what gate I my flight was now on and had fifteen minutes to make it to the correct gate. Had the original gate displayed the new information any later I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Except for comments under what I didn't like. AA experience was O.K."
Cons: "The restrooms needed cleaned better. Big airplane lots of people, needs cleaned before, during, and after. Had to pay for the Wi-Fi, that I used for 30 min, basically for E-Mail."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was how polite and helpful the staff was at the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants both seemed unhappy and we're not very polite. They hardly came through the cabin at all. It took a while to get anything. They mostly just stayed in the back talking to each other. The pilot didn't greet us. Just stood there when we walked in. And there was a kid screaming for most of the trip. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. This was my first trip flying, and on the trip to Miami I flew with Delta. The service with them was tremendously better. I was really disappointed."
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."
Pros: "I was shocked to finally get a snack. Seems like years since that happened. And we arrived in Indy thirty minutes early!"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly delayed."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding was not good!"
Pros: "I really like the crew on this flight, they were very polite and very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding again same comment as above. Comfort was good because I had paid for an upgrade which I actually thought I was paying for the international flight but found out it was actually for the Charlotte flight which was a surprise it was not very clear from the tool. So hence the Comfort was great on this flight. But the tool needs to make it much more clear as to what you are selecting the upgrade for. Food, there has got to be something else out there other than pretzels, I understand why we do not have peanuts, but a little bit more variety would be very nice. I understand there's a cost tractor, but often pretzels tend to be fairly stale. Short flights entertainment."
Pros: "I missed my flight due to LA traffic. American Airlines was very accommodating. They put me at ease and helped reach my destination. I wasn't treated like it was my fault. They totally understood and were very compassionate. Thank you."
Pros: "I made it safe to the mainland"
Cons: "We had some Change of plans and we're going to just get off in Phoenix and not take it straight to San Diego, we called American they said no big deal they would ticket our bags to Phoenix, got to the airport and the American Airlines gal stated in no way shape or form could they do that, I tried explaining the whole situation and her response always ended in 'and your bags will be in San Diego'. By the grace of God we were able to cram two checked bags worth of stuff into our carry ons which I still do not know how we did that, and were fine. On the flight we had a decently nice lady and a horrible male. When passing out drinks he seemed almost irritated that we had asked for water and rudely gave it to us which was room temperature. He totally skipped the lady in the row with us and got irritated when she asked for a water as well."
Pros: "No complaints. Love American!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was high spirited, funny, and very attentive!"
Cons: "Delayed due to crew member not arriving. They boarded half the plane before realizing and then made those individuals de-plane and re-board again."
Pros: "Trip was quick bags came quickly also and everyone very nice!!"
Cons: "Cost of everything in airports!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "The crews not responsible for AAs garbage corporate policies, and were empathetic"
Cons: "No pilots, and mechanical issues."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the plane was new."
Cons: "The seats are entirely too close together. If I wanted to be crammed in uncomfortably close to the seat in front of me, I would have chosen a budget airline like Spirit. I am not a large person by any means in terms of height or weight, and I cannot imagine how anyone who is relatively tall could ever be comfortable on your airline. Will not likely book again."
Cons: "this was the first time a I have traveled to the US and I was stranded at the Louisville airport after the flight diverted due to bad weather. I was offered no alternative transportation to Indianapolis. I was totally lost being in a strange city without support. finally I had to take a taxi which was very expensive"
Pros: "I somehow made it to IND"
Cons: "Everything. I had to be transported by an old unsafe looking bus to a separate terminal and had to climb up and down emergency stairs (not handicap friendly), also I have 2 roller bags I carry on to every flight I have ever taken without issue and they charged me $25 per bag to check because it was a "snug" fit into their dimension box. Also gave no snacks and only half can refreshments, no entertainment."
Pros: "Great service with low prices!"
Pros: "Service by the ANA crew was excellent"
Pros: "The flight from Honolulu to San Francisco was great! Staff was amazing. Trip was smooth and very enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight from San Francisco to Washington was horrible. Terribly overcrowded and i wasn’t offered a thing until 40 minutes till landing. Then the flight from Washington to Chattanooga was delayed over 2 hours. Which i understand safety comes first but it made for a very long two day trip back from Hawaii."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"
Pros: "Lufthansa crew and service made the long trip not just bearable,but enjoyable!"
Cons: "The seats are super squeezed together. My daughter and I weigh no more than 130 lbs each and We were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I like the price"
Cons: "The seats isn’t made for a big person which is my main complain for ALL Airlines. The charger for my phone wasn’t a USB charger"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence due to weather"
Cons: "It was operated by United Airlines. Absolutely no food oe entertainment, limited comfort."
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Upgrade and lay flat seats."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "They were nice. Speak different languages to cover travelers all over the world. But food wasn't that great."
Pros: "Flight was only about 25% full so we have lots of room to stretch out. Appreciated the vegetarian option for the meal. It was tasty."
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "No wifi, so no entertainment. But we did get 2 packets of snacks!"
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Pros: "Quick boarding/deplaning and super friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The fact that I had to download an app for onboard entertainment prior o my flight is farcical."
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "Everything else was fine. I was even able to access my luggage in LAX to retrieve my medication, which I accidentally had left in there. Thanks for that."
Cons: "Stewardess was so big and clumsy, that she had to hold on to the overhead bins and wake me up every time she squeezed through aisle and scraped by me. I know you cannot discriminate against big staff, but you have to make the aisle wider if you want your passengers to be comfortable and undisturbed."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "Cramped and overcrowded"
Pros: "Finding the flight I needed"
Cons: "Found the flight on the United site but couldn't buy it because it wouldn't let me enter my birthday. Called to book over the phone right then and the price was $100 more. Went online to check and the price was 100 suddenly. Went to kayak and they still had the original price. Games like that make choose United last"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "I like that the flight was quick and convenient!"
Cons: "There should have been free entertainment considering the short length of the flight. There was no beverage service."
Cons: "It would be nice to see a smile and enthusiasm from the attendants. Service? Waited almost two hours before my empty bottle was removed from my tray top. Asian airline attendants can teach UAL's a thing or two about the art of service."
Pros: "The ground crew gave ZERO guidance. Never made announcements. Until they finally told us they found a plane and we would be boarding after safety check. Then announced 10 minutes later flight crew had timed out and flight was canceled."
Cons: "NO COMMUNICATION."
Cons: "It was ok. We had to connect to the their wifi in order to watch movies, yet the wifi continued to buffer. So it wasn't the best."
Pros: "Pilots did a good job comforting passengers about duration of flight, weather and safety. Smooth flight for all 8 hours. Sevice was good."
Pros: "I like the o assemblers that rode with me. Two individuals that were extremely kind to me Jim and Ethan Farley that were in the same situation I was in."
Cons: "After a rough start in Honolulu we landed in San Francisco to catch our connecting flight to Chicago but when arriving to the gate before the plane left I along with the other passengers were ignored and given no information as to why we couldn't board the plane. The best they could do was St Louis. Frustrated is an understatement."
Pros: "The flight seemed to go by a lot quicker than I expected"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline back so I could not sleep on my REDEYE flight!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour on take off. Had to wait 1 hour for bags at my destination because the cargo door was stuck."
Cons: "Plane old , no music, no tv, no plug in"
Pros: "Really great price!! Less than 200.00 round trip. No delays ant the steward was super nice."
Pros: "It was a short and direct flight. That was what I was looking for and got. The only delay was back up in Indianapolis do to fog."
Cons: "My husband & I booked seats together and you separated us to opposite sides! There was not a single movie since there weren't any TV screens. There were no USB plug ins."
Pros: "communication is good inside the plane."
Cons: "You have to pay for food , entertainment and music."
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable. I asked to upgrade to economy plus, they said they could do it then had problems with the computer. When we boarded the flight, they called another couple up from the back of the plane to take the seats we offered to upgrade to. We flew from Hawaii back to SF for an uncomfortable 5 hour ride. The crew was also especially rude, asking my partner "what do you want?" with disdain. He had to ask twice to be helped. I'm a very frequent flyer...I fly just about every other week for work and I've never experienced this. it made me not want to fly United again."
