Pros: "After my evening flight on Air Canada was cancelled and I was so anxious that I would not make it to Vancouver the next morning in time for my cruise, Taeao at Alaska airline was an Angel in disguise!! She helped me get booked on a flight that would arrive in time and was so comforting! In fact, all employees that evening were so helpful. Even when the engine wouldn't start on connecting flight in Seattle and we had to return to gate, delaying flight quite a while,?Captain kept us well informed of what was going on and was very apologetic and very quickly, Alaska airlines sent me an email with a credit towards another flight because of the inconvenience!! THANK YOU Alaska Airline, Taeao and employees working on the evening of June 20 at HNL!!!!!"

Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Do not like the biscuit cookies. They taste awful."
Pros: "The first-class flight attendants would sometimes help the main cabin passengers and were generally in a better attitude and much more helpful."
Cons: "The plane was changed and my "Premium" seat was downgraded. The seats were uncomfortable and much too cramped. I paid $89 extra for premium seating, and when cancelled upon, was only offered a $25 credit for future travel plans. Since I cannot count on Alaska, I'm not sure how soon my "future," travel plans will be ..."
Cons: "$25 checked bag fee!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, not too long, but always seems to happen when I fly Alaska out of Sea-Tac!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that I could charge my mobile device in flight. I also liked the fact that there were allergy-sensitive menu choices. Menu prices were OK, about the same that I could buy from a restaurant in Honolulu."
Cons: "I didn't know that in order to watch the entertainment, you need to download an app first. I also didn't know that you could reserve meals beforehand. Happily, that wasn't an issue; the only thing I was interested in eating was still available when they got to me, even tho I was sitting at the very back of the plane. The meal was not delicious."
Pros: "-The tablet entertainment option was great since there was no inseat entertainment. The cost of of the tablet was cheap and allowed you access to everything, which is different from other airline a-la-carte purchasing of different entertainment. -Crew was great, food/beverage service was also great."
Cons: "-At HNL there was poor signage to get from the rental car return to the airline. Once we got into the terminal it really wasn't clear if we should go left or right, We wound up asking an American employee where Alaska was. -After the checked bag agriculture inspection it was not clear that you go to the kiosks there right after the inspection. I think it partially wasn't clear because there were multiple large groups traveling with tons of luggage and you go straight to the kiosks and then back track to hand over your checked bag. The line for checking the bag vs needing help wasn't clear either. Luckily there were Alaska employee's there helping at the kiosks and with the bag checking so it did go smooth but could definitely be better."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Flight on time"
Cons: "Alaska has scaled back seats, not as comfortable as Hawaiian. No meal included even on the long flight to Hawaii. Hawaiian has a meal and seats seem to be more roomy in coach. I am not a big person and o thought it was more cramped than my Hawaiian Coach seating."

Cons: "Cramped really hot felt like a sardine for 5 hours. will not fly alaska"
Pros: "Amazing plane and crew for a short trip"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Loved the charging ports in premium economy;"
Cons: "didn't realize you needed a download for entertainment until I was on the plane, and no wifi from Hawaii, so that was a wash... maybe send an email or something to remind before the flight?"
Pros: "Staff was polite, and flight attended were also nice."
Cons: "I understand short distance flights don't get a lot of selection for food, but it would be nice to have a better selection. This is more so on late night flights."
Pros: "Good food comfortable seating friendly staff"
Cons: "You would not accept cash only debit or credit card"
Pros: "The flight attendants and gate agent were outstanding."
Cons: "The food choice (a cookie)."

Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Small plane."
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."

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: "Didn’t get the seat I booked"

Cons: "Electrical problems kept us from the entertainment and lighting for reading."
Pros: "The Crew was very accomidating and friendly."
Cons: "5.5 hour flight with no entertainment provided. $16 to $18 if you rented an Ipad for 4 hours. There was no option for lunch which was a slimy, tasteless chicken sandwich. No special diet options. 1 bag of chips with the sandwich and late in the flight a 1/2 oz.( yes .5 oz.) bag of snack mix. A 4 oz. glass of water, juice or soft drinks were offered about every hour."
Pros: "Good food and beverage service for coach. 767 plane has more isle seats so more comfortable for longer flight. Flight crew excellent."
Cons: "HA has older 767s that have few entertainment options for the long flights, bring your own. Honolulu airport is immense and the distance from the gate to the baggage is very long and there is only one small stretch of moving walkway and no assistance carts. If you have trouble walking a mile, get a wheelchair. Same thing at Phoenix terminal 3. Long walk from gate to baggage without any assistance whatsoever."
Pros: "One stewardess was fantastic. I changed seats twice so a parent could sit with a child. Prices for extras was too high for us poor folk."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good and was not enough for a meal. Somehow this could be more substantial and a little bit of a choice."

Pros: "There is complimentary food and wine, which is a big step up from other airlines."
Cons: "I purchased this flight through kayak via Expedia, and I selected seats on the Expedia website for all my flight legs. For some reason, my seat selections did not communicate with Hawaiian Airlines. As a result, during boarding, I was assigned a random seat. The flight from HNL-PHX was completely full, and I got stuck with a seat which had no windows in the row right in front of the galley and bathrooms. I suggest that Expedia communicate better with HA on seat assignments."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, service was ok"
Cons: "Ants were crawling all over seat & flight tray. My seat pocketbhad leftover food smushed into it. We informed thr stewardess & tge people in front of us had the same issue with ants"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Cabin temperature to cold."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."
Pros: "The airline still serves a free meal"
Cons: "The airport in Honolulu is too small for the number of tourists going through!! We were TSA precheck and it still took 45 minutes to get through. We went online to choose our seats for our trip home and the site said see agent on arrival to airport so we got to the airport and no agents just the kiosk which assigned our seating ."
Pros: "Hawaiian as usual had wonderful crew, on time and efficient. Still love the free meal with a glass of wine in coach!"
Cons: "The plane was ancient, cramped and in poor repair. There was no extra comfort section and zero chance of an upgrade to the tiny 1st class cabin."
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Pros: "The fact the a meal is provided in coach, is certainly a bonus for the airline. The flight crew is friendly and moves quickly."
Cons: "For a flight that is gaurenteed to be 6 hrs or more, I think Hawaiian should consider some options of entertainment beyond a limited number of iPads at a charge. I'm okay paying for something like wifi or an iPad, but maybe some heads up when buying a ticket. My Japan Air flight from HI to Japan had great wifi, so don't tell me that over ocean flights don't work. I think they ought to treat the flight as an international flight when it comes to beverage and snacks..."
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 4 hours prior to departing for Phoenix. This was absolutely ridiculous! No communication or updates as to the situation."

Pros: "Just a very nice flight, great service, very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Left you alone if you wanted to sleep. Flight was uneventful and that's good."

Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "Service was great."
Pros: "Great service... good meal... and free wine! Yeeeew!"

Cons: "Leg room. Also, I was unable to select seats when making the reservation."

Cons: "Long wait during boatding"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable for a 3hr flight. Was very disappointed"
Cons: "Seat, tv, choices, flight attendants speech articulation."

Cons: "The flight crew was subpar. We had been delayed by 2 hours and they did nothing to assuage anyone’s frustrations. Service was minimal and lacklustre. In flight WiFi didn’t work with any streaming service. Plane was noisy and old. Seat was about worn through. Truly the worst in flight experience I can remember having domestically."
Pros: "It was a safe journey good rest and a very smooth operation"
Cons: "More vegan options"
Pros: "Service was ok not a big deal. Could've had a accommodate us for the 2 hour delay"

Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Pros: "Great service by crew!"
Cons: "Took too long to get on board."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to econ comfort"
Cons: "WIFI wasn’t working. USB charging port wasn’t working either"
Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Poor customer service, panicking customers for nothing and just general lack of consideration for paying customers. Definite turn off to Delta. Not planning to use this airline agaon"
Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."

Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."
Pros: "Boarding went well, departed on time and arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."

Pros: "Great staff, quick service."

Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."

Pros: "Row to myself"
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"

Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "Aisle seat; leaving on time"
Cons: "Sat next to family with 3 small children; kids and parents did very well. Wished Delta could have arrange for family to have 3 seats together. Would have been family friendly."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"

Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Tom threatened to have me ARRESTED after inquiring as to why he was unusually and much more than personally and intentionally. I hope he’s enjoye his Career w AA. My Mom has worked there 30 yrs & he finished after messin w the WRONG SPICY Cajun Woman Who’s been oppressed and abused ENOUGH!!!!!"

AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."

Pros: "Great crew!"

My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Pros: "None at all. Poor customer service"
Cons: ". My flight from Maui to Phoenix was not good. I was at the back near where they store foods and drinks. I had a bad stomach pain. I requested a hot tea. Flight attendant declined. Was a horrible flight because of my stomach pain. If I only knew American Airlines flight attendant are very rude. I will not book this airline again. Very poor customer service. The flight attendant was white , male, older."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."
Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Cons: "There was.a constant flow of cold air which was VERY uncomfortable. Everyone around my area had covers over their heads to keep warm."
Pros: "The FA was great, she was always checking on us and ensured we were taken care off."
Cons: "The seats were old and didn't recline. The food basket is a joke as it mainly has snacks for mid day or evening flights. Popcorn isn't a breakfast time snack."
Pros: "Quick service. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."
Pros: "Mechanically safe Entertainment monitor and USB charging"
Cons: "Loading up a plane to sit in for >1.5 hrs waiting for a pilot and de-icing rushed service"
Pros: "Nothing. THis airline is the pits. Stay far far away."
Cons: "Everything. Desk agents are rude and unhelpful, airlines break regularly, flights always delayed, baggage always lost, awful."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and the in-flight movie was great!"
Cons: "A teenager sitting behind me kept putting her feet and knees at the back of my chair making it very uncomfortable for me the entire flight."
Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Nice crew, plane was decent"
Cons: "Delayed waiting on a crew person to get to the airport to fly to Dallas. We had to wait an hour at the gate. They didn't tell us what the delay was for until we had been waiting 30m."
Cons: "There was a snow delay in Chicago, but nobody offered assistance when we were on the ground. We felt abandoned by American Airlines because we asked three different people for assistance and they didn't seem to want to take on the problem. They were like Pontius Pilate, and "washed their hands" of us!!!"
Pros: "Good experience."
Pros: "On the way there, it was a newer plane in nicecondition, comfortable, entertainment was ok."
Cons: "AA IOS app - always problems getting the mobile boarding passes. This time is just like every other. Never a problem before with US Air or Southwest Food - There and back, sandwiches and non-snack items were sold out by the time crew could get to the rows in the back Plane on the way back was a certified POS. Seats were ancient and broken, Engine couldn't start - twice, and no entertainment"
Cons: "The scheduled departure time was moved forward, thus creating confusion and inconvenience."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
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: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."
Pros: "Nice new interior"
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."
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: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."
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."
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."
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
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: "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."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Cons: "Cramped and overcrowded"
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants & the pilots kept us posted on everything which made me feel extra comfortable!"
Pros: "i didnot like any thing"
Cons: "they cancle the flight time so meny and i got other flight cancled"
Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"
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: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."
Cons: "4 hour delay because of scheduling"
Cons: "Plane old , no music, no tv, no plug in"
Pros: "The crew and pilot was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. It was two hours behind schedule. Then there was a delay in boarding, no entertainment on board unless you buy wifi or previously downloaded the united app to watch selected shows on your mobile device! Appalling to say the least! Whatever happened to the days when you get on an airplane and food and entertainment was a part of your ticket price! Another thing that bothered me was the fact that I had to pay $25 for my suitcase! Really United! Am I not allowed one piece of luggage? I don't like carry my bags around with me so now I have to pay to check it! Shouldn't that be the other way around! Charge for carry on luggage, it's such a hassle and also slows down boarding time, cases congestion in the hallway with everyone reaching for their luggage in the overhead bins! I can keep going, but what good is it gonna do. United airlines suck!"
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: "Even though it was a larger plane it boarded rather quickly for the number of passengers on board"
Cons: "The United Express spoiled me because of its smaller size but being roomier then the second half of my trip"
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."
Cons: "Paying extra for a nicer seat and boarding last."
Pros: "TV service in plane was awesome feature"
Pros: "Theflight out was early and the stsff on both planes pleasent."
Cons: "The seats on flight out had no room and i was on top of my husband in order to give the poor man next to me room."
