Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was one of the best flights I’ve had. Service was really good and enjoyed the complimentary cocktails"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "No headsets available for borrow or purchase on a 6-hour flight, extremely limited overhead bin space, seats did not recline"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I paid to upgrade to a larger seat and it wasn’t much better . The flight had no WiFi and pretty much no entertainment on the iPad they had us pay for either . I will stick with Hawaiian Airlines ."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and the in flight entertainment was perfect. I didn't have headphones so I was ready to purchase some, but Alaska gives them out for FREE. The seats were also one of the most comfortable (for coach standards) I've been in."
Cons: "Not a huge deal but I'm one of those people who are alwayscold and got cold on the flight. Unfortunately they don't have blankets but I had a hoodie that flight attend got down for me that worked just fine. Also, no complimentary food, so just make sure to stock up before boarding."
Pros: "Seemed roomy, crew was nice."
Pros: "the fly was really smooth"
Cons: "i was not very happy about them leaving all 4 of my luggage Hawaii.. did received them the next day but still not happy about it."
Pros: "Alaska really cares about their customers. The Gate Agents, Flight Attendants, and Pilots are all awesome. I really enjoy the Alaska credit card benefits too."
Cons: "My wife and I are allergic to dairy and the snack on this flight was Cheese Its. It would have been nice to have another option that was dairy free."
Pros: "Going through TSA was horrible!! Honolulu airport definitely needs more help to get people through the lines. We are both in our 70's and had to wait way to long of time to get through security!!!"
Cons: "The flight was good but when we landed at Sea-Tac airport, we had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to our gate!!! It was 2 hours before we got off the plane. We missed our Sea-Tac shuttle to take us to Oak Harbor and had to reschedule. We just made the next one and it cost us to reschedule. Thank goodness they had room for us on the next shuttle!!! Not very happy!!! It was no fault of the Alaska pilots or crew but the management of the airlines!!"
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: "Quick flight. Made a new friend. Loved the view"
Pros: "The crew was upbeat and very entertaining !!!"
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."
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"
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."
Pros: "Awesome support when I missed my flight, courteous professional and hassle free rescheduled for the next day!"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, empty middle seats. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Snacks lacked variety and nutritional value."
Cons: "100% as always.. delta has never disappointed! Keep up the good work guys"

Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Pros: "Hmm pilots safety records paid over 2500 for comfort eats wanting to feel a bit more special"
Cons: "Food was awful service main cabin mediocre at best I don’t think delta realizes how important all the customers are not just business class as we do have choice out there throwing the piece of chocolate out there at the end to a horrible experience doesn’t make it ok"
Pros: "comfort plus really makes a difference"
Cons: "include at least 1 checked back with comfort plus or some kind of discount."
Cons: "It was well executed flight"
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "Not very crowded"
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived as scheduled. Just as it should be."
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "Rude stewardesses; I was traveling with 3 children onanovernight flight. I just wanted the simplest things- blankets and headphones for them. I cannot believe that an overnight flight wouldn’t be stocked with pillows and blankets. We froze al the way across the Pacific."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Cons: "Seat did not recline."
Pros: "Equipment was nice and well maintained. Seats are comfortable for coach. Video at each seat. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The customer service and the strict nonsense rules"
Cons: "Mechanical repair on nose wheel"
Cons: "Before was better no now"
Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"
Pros: "on time, good service,"
Cons: "i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim"
Pros: "Very comfortable seat and nice boarding and exit."
Cons: "Not clear at all on what was complimentary, etc. Had a very large man next to me, practically sharing my seat so getting any needed work done was out of the question unfortunately."
Pros: "Even though I was disappointed by not being able to get the boarding passes from Delta for Aeromexico’s connecting flight to Bogota, I had an agent greet me after customs in Mexico to issue the boarding pass so I could use the transfer flight line. Excellent service throughout the entire trip."
Cons: "Confusion over my boarding pass at the Delta terminal in Detroit."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flight Attendant and great Boeing 737-800 was amazing"
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super."
Cons: "Delta is just another cattle car"
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I'm 6'6" and used to having my knees jammed hard against the seat in front of me (right into the metal frame). The knee room on this flight was better, they weren't even touching the seat!"
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"
Pros: "The plane was not very full and I was selected to move be from row 30 to row 16. All seats in that row were empty. That was very nice."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Cons: "No food or beverage service"
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Columbus airport is very nice. Security was quick. Boarding the plane was smooth and no problems. Staff was very nice too!"

Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."
Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Cons: "Boarding procedure could have been a bit more organized as we had trouble hearing what seats were boarding."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Pros: "Direct flight. Larger drink serving."
Cons: "Our seat row didn’t recline. Row in front of emergency exit."
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."
Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Getting home safely"
Cons: "Finding damage to my luggage"
Cons: "After flying from Denver to Philly, I had anticipated an hour and a half layover. First email came speaking of a delay, then second, then about five emails later American Airlines notified me that there will be a 4 hour delay. To get from Philly to avoca on a flight is half an hour. On a bus, its two hours. If an airline knows there will be a four hour delay, how do you not provide that service? I watched plent of other flights go to AVP and even to Allentown, no one could offer one of those options to me? Cold, compressed and miserable experience."
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Pros: "I loved that they gave us a pillow and a blanket for travel. They also had free on screen entertainment with some of the best movies on there to watch and even provided free earphones if you did not have any."
Cons: "Nothing, I loved it all."
Pros: "The OJ."
Cons: "How come COPA airlines can afford serving meals??"
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Pros: "Crew was service oriented and friendly and food was good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating; ran out of water on an 8 hour flight, and no individualized entertainment"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."
Pros: "I thought the crew was friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane did not have personal TVs, which means they showed a handful of bad movies overhead and on a nine hour flight, it's hard not to be able to pick a movie or pick a TV show."
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
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."
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: "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: "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."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 2 times"
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"

Pros: "It look less time than stated. The flight was smooth. The scenery was beautiful."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane."
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: "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: "Boarding long lines in Honolulu"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The plane got almost 1/2 way to SFO before having to return to honolulu bc they didn't have enough fuel. We spent 5 hrs in the air over th pacific for nothing and wasted a while day of our life. No weather issues, no mechanical issues, just they didn't have enough fuel widen it turned out there were strong headwinds."
Cons: "Cramped and overcrowded"
Pros: "The only thing good was the flight attendants were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "No free food or alcohol. This is the first international flight that I flew that didn't offer free food and alcohol. Never flying United again"
Pros: "Boarding and in boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "My gate kept changing even after I was already at the airport."
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable. There was a slight delay but we were kept well informed."
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: "Extra legroom in premier economy was great. Entertainment made the long flight quite enjoyable."
Cons: "I liked the 2-5-2 seat arrangement better than this new 3-3-3."
Pros: "The staff was really nice! Flight was on time and clerk changed my flight to a more efficient itinerary"
Cons: "I had alittle trouble with the entertainment/technology aspect but eventually got it. I had to download the united app and then went around and around till i got the movie i wanted to watch. It would be good to have an outlet to power the device also."
Pros: "That we got there earlier than expected."
Cons: "The shakedown to buy food or rent a tablet was beyond me. On the way to Honolulu. The young lady next to me had not eaten and it was the third flight on her journey, she had one more flight to go. the pressure from the flight attendant was similar to a very bad used car salesman. Tacky. When the same thing happened to another young person on my flight back, I suspected this is the way United runs its flights. I'm guessing United doesn't treat their employees well. They did just enough to be barely pleasant. I won't fly United again."
Pros: "Almost missed flight. Ran from chicago flight and Medford was already boarding"
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: "Plane old , no music, no tv, no plug in"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say in this box."
Cons: "7 am flight cancelled and re booked for 4pm flight on standby until then. 4pm flight didn't finish boarding until 5pm. No compensation offered on top of all of that, turbulence was terrible during descent. Been on easily over 100 flights and this was the worst"
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."
