Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"The whole process sucked very unorganized and not enough I do available"
Pros: "Check in in Hawaii was excellent"
Pros: "It was quick, simple, not too crowded, and easy."
Cons: "The WiFi could have worked."
Pros: "Although departure was delayed, we arrived early!"
Pros: "Nothing at all memorable Nothing bad Standard didn’t see much of them honestly"
Cons: "Beverage and movie player service was quite a while after when I expected. Movies were very limited compared to other airlines, and a $10 fee. The beverage/ food sales service did need to stop because of turbulence and didn’t restart fast enough for the passengers at the back of the plane that missed out. No water offered before landing, FYI. No blankie and pillow either."
Cons: "Nice job and thanks for waiting."
Cons: "Flight attendants too fast in aisle. Not around enough"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not particularly friendly. Food had some odd textures."
Cons: "Seat not very comfortable."
Pros: "The leg room. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Paid an extra $200 to sit in the front only to have the back be let out first. Charge for entertainment and no WiFi until the last 20 min of the flight. False advertising."
Cons: "Hour early with tail winds - all fabulous"
Pros: "Easy on, easy off! Departed and arrived on time. Crew were cheery and bright! Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!"
Cons: "Some of these survey questions need to be NA- my flight was too short for food service or entertainment."
Pros: "On time, always well informed, decent snack and drinks, nice attendants, plenty of legroom in premier and I like the way we can use our own devices for entertainment. If you forgot yours Alaska has something you can use for a small fee."
Cons: "We sat in premier and would have liked to use the restroom in front instead of going all the way to the back. Using a restroom should never be an issue."
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean. Appreciated the care of the phone agent when we needed to make a change."
Cons: "Husbands upgraded seat 6C was terribly uncomfortable. My row and one other were completely skipped with food services I’m mean completely, no cracker no offer of food for purchase nothing. When I asked if there would be an opportunity to purchase food I was told that there would be three more carts....nope just nope. First time I ever have needed to purchase something to eat and it was complete unavailable. When the last cart came by I asked again and was treated rather bruskly of course I was just too “hangry” to care. First truly horrid trip I’ve ever experienced. This was not a full flight. Not sure what the heck was up but I’ve never been so glad to get off a flight."
Pros: "Comfortable, up to date plane, appreciated entertainment. And internet options."
Cons: "Captain was cheerful; rest of crew was polite and efficient but no smiles! ( Mid cabin lav was a smelly mess.)"
Pros: "I splurged and purchased the first class upgrade as i am tall and it was a very long flight. Loved the legroom and service i received."
Cons: "Went through the boarding process and then we all waited in the line outside the plane for some time. They obviously were not ready to board the plane which was difficult for some of the elderly now standing in line. I had a planned dinner in sacramento which was a main reason i took this long layover and due to leaving 2 hours late i missed the dinner which had to be canceled. This was very important to me. The 75$ discount given to me on a future flight is not going to replace the time off work and the dinner which will now have to wait for anither trip to the mainland."
Pros: "I love Alaska Airlines!! They are always so nice and very accommodating. I travel with my dog and they are great. The only airline I fly with my dog."
Cons: "The new planes on Alaska don’t have enough air flow coming out of the vent above the seat"
Cons: "Seats need more padding."
Cons: "I was informed we'd get some kind of voucher for the 5 hour delay but never recieved anything."
Pros: "Crew and boarding process"
Cons: "No international choice in entertainment and food"
Pros: "Efficient and competent. One of the better airlines out there."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"
Pros: "The pilot was very good...he landed in Bellingham in a rain storm that really rocked the plane. Great job!"
Cons: "The man next to me left his phone on so he could text."
Pros: "After we boarded, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Although we booked the flight months before, and I'm both an Alaska and American frequent flyer, they would not assign us seats until when boarding started. In fact, unless I went to the agent's desk, I'm not sure they would have even remembered. Then my husband and I were split on the plane, and even worse, assigned in middle seats. Unacceptable. Last, unlike Hawaiian, they served no food. I'm flying Hawaiian in the future."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous service. Different from other airlines, the flight crew did not seem exhausted and overworked."
Pros: "Everything went so smoothly. I was surprised at all the food options available and how nice the people were. The plane was comfortable."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding Walking outside to get into the plane The flight attendant"
Cons: "Asked at check-in if my barcode was ok to use bc I did not receive an automated email for return check-in, she said "Let me see, yes that's good, but hurry up because you have 40min before your plane departs". Low and behold, security said my barcode was not valid and had to run back and forth to get a new one printed. What made it worse was the check in clerk wanted to argue her point and there was only one flight attendant available and boarding closed 12min prior to departure, I was standing and waiving through the gates window trying to get all the flight attendants attention. I could have made it but missed my flight. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "Since we were delayed, the crew gave some complimentary refreshments"
Cons: "We were delayed, the boarding was ridiculous since half the flight boarded with "priority" and then another 1/4 boarded for their elite and first class, so the rest of us in the back had nowhere to put our things. My husband and I were separated even though I had picked my seats months prior. No seatback entertainment whatsoever for a 6 hour flight. I am disappointed--I hold Alaska to a much higher standard based on past experience."
Pros: "The 52 year old airline assistant, who looks about 32 was very nice to us and understanding when she knew we had so much travel ahead of us. She was very nice."
Cons: "So uncomfortable. We had a 25 hour traveling day ahead of us and needed some sleep. It's just soooo uncomfortable and squished. It's painful to sit for long periods of time, let alone try to get some sleep. The girl in front of me adjusted in her seat and totally smacked me in the head when I was trying to lay my head on the table to give my poor back a break. Babies, a lot of babies, and dogs, not good for trying to catch some z's either."
Cons: "Only one movie in 5 hours because the network does not work properly. . A second movie could not be selected after the first movie was chosen"
Pros: "Alaska is one of the best airlines to fly these days, and I've flown most. I have my mileage program on another airlines but I'd switch to them all the time if I could."
Pros: "Terrible that I had to carry my carry on down the stairs to plane, lucky it wasn't raining, & then up a flight of stairs to plane with a torn rotator cuff. I felt like I was flying in the 70's. Coming back, a bald headed attendant was very rude. I did not get any refreshments on the way to Portland which they said was a rough ride but ride was smooth. That was ok, that didn't matter if our safety was involved. Also $25 for one bag is a lot to carry hair spray or a few things you can't carry on."
Cons: "I did like the refreshments served on the way back from Portland to Reno. That was nice. A different attendant served us & he was very nice."
Pros: "The staff is awesome, the ride is always so comfortable"
Cons: "Not flying more often"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and weren't overbearing or rude like I frequently experience on other airlines. They offered tablets to passbook the time with our kids and offered lots of chances for drinks and food. We felt well taken care of. Would definitely fly with Alaska again and hope to get row 6 again!"
Pros: "The flight was very good! The ground and flight crews were very courteous and took the time to answer our questions and help us to move through the flight process very quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "The only complaint is the additional cost for luggage on the aircraft. My wife and I both had a suitcase and we were charged accordingly. I'm confident that this is a requirement of the airline but it should all be doable if within the 50lb weight limit. Thank you for everything, Randy Patchett"
Pros: "The flight took one hour less than was predicted!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "The Airline did not notify via text/email that the flight was delayed for 2 hours."
Pros: "I booked my flight through Alaska airlines. On the flight to CA it was required my 5 year old sit on her booster seat which we loved. The stewardess on the way back (this flight) refused to let my daughter sit on it and tried to tell me I didn't know what I was talking about. I pulled up policy and it stated the child was in fact supposed to sit in her booster. The woman was rude and snotty about it. Lost my business just from her attitude."
Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, upgrades to plane made it average--USB ports, outlets, etc. Move selection on rentals was average at best."
Pros: "I liked the direct flight."
Cons: "We returned to Sacramento, and my bag was "lost". The bag attendant suggested it was hung up on the belt. Our neighbors had to circle the airport while we dealt with her. We went home without my bag. Thirty minutes after we were home, the bag attendant called and said they had my bag. We returned to the airport to pick it up because they could/would not guarantee that it would be delivered safely. The attendant said that it was there on another belt. NOT, because I actually checked before we left. Then, she didn't want to give us the Measly $50 voucher. Ugh, still upset a week later."
Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Wish bags were free"
Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."
Pros: "Staff was excellent. They were courteous, professional and inviting."
Cons: "Even though I booked all three fares together, we were not given the seats I selected online nor were we even seated together."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1h, you had to pay for food and entertainment for a 5h flight"
"Flight crew was friendly and professional"
Pros: "Absolutely ridiculous ... sat on the runway longer than the flight."
Cons: "Reason we sat on the runway longer than the flight is they were understaffed. Unacceptable."
Pros: "I had been travelling for 2 days with a bad back & everyone was so helpful with my situation."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Honestly everything."
Pros: "Nothing. I’ll never do business with Delta again. Not even to make use of the $80.00 voucher credit they extended. Delta San Antonio manager Delphine is an awful representative of customer service, and a horrible person!"
Cons: "I should have never flown Delta."
Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Pros: "The gate crew were very responsive and told us accurate estimates about the delayed departure time. They even distributed snacks for us."
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."
Cons: "Check your planes thoroughly before placing passengers on it. The pressurized cabin almost killed us!!"
Pros: "One crew member was especially amazing"
Cons: "The rest of the crew were meh. This time there was no food. I pillows. Water leaking from the ceiling."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Cons: "Seats did not match seat map"
Pros: "arrived a bit early"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Cons: "Seating was cramped in economy, but you get what you pay for!"
Cons: "Basic economy is just another way for the airlines to provide low service and nickel and dime everyone while charging the same prices."
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off. The crew tried to make it up but it was 90 minutes late in the end - I almost missed a connection. Seats were ok."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Plane was too warm,"
Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "My flight to Atlanta was delayed which caused me to miss my flight to Seattle. The next earliest flight was booked so had to catch another flight several hours later. No one from Delta offered any sort of compensation."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."
Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was to hard. Food should have an Asian option, the touch panel display of entertainment system worked very slow and poorly, was hard to navigate."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."
Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."
Pros: "Flight was fine. They were especially generous with the snacks."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "Nothing Special"
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: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Quick trip and relaxing --- no high way traffic issues, accidents or construction hold ups."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I did not like."
Cons: "No blankets or pillows. Froze"
Cons: "Delayed four hours"
Cons: "Food and entertainment as always."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Pros: "Flight left on time despite the problems"
Cons: "We waited for one hour to be able to board. The system crashed so we were very lucky to arrive very early to the airport"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Old plane especially in first, no TV s"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Very kind staff."
Pros: "Great Delta crew at check in and boarding!"
Cons: "Rear of plane very hot after passing through a very cool front. Service without a smile. "Don't have that" monitors on seats were almost useless."
Pros: "I was able to sleep on the late night flight"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "Better social distancing standards. People are still getting sick even with the vaccine."
Cons: "We need more drinks, water or food on flights over 3 hours!"
Pros: "The crew was super polite, even with the delay."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable."
Cons: "Maui to LAX GOOD. LAX to Phx crowded for Covid19 situation. Sat in middle seat between two other passengers. PHX to Santa Ana no one sat in the middle seat. It concerns me that such cheek to jowels seating could backfire"
Pros: "Nice to fly again!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 3 hours and I still don’t know why."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "19 minute flight wheels up to wheels down!"
Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Pros: "Even though we left late, we made up time in the air."
Cons: "My aisle seat didn’t recline."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The seat was tiny. It took forever. I hate you people."
Pros: "Great plane"
Cons: "ATC delayed us 2 hours IN THE PLANE. Luggage was delivered to the wrong baggage terminal. LAX is the worst."
Pros: "Didn't have any entertainment so I was able to sleep."
Cons: "Equipment not functioning so couldn't watch movies or listen to music."
Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"
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!!!!!"
Cons: "See above. I like Kayak"
Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."
Cons: "Delays. Crew were rude. Down graded seats separated from spouse"
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."
Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination alive."
Cons: "It was my first time taking Virgin America and I didn't know movies weren't free. I used to travel a lot and I've never had to pay for movies. I ended up watching 12 episodes of Big Bang Theory because it was the only free thing to watch that wasn't LinkedIn videos or Disney, which really sucked. Comfort level wasn't any better than any of the other airlines and service was the same as well. I've heard good things about Virgin but my experience was just mediocre."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."
Pros: "I slept the whole way and we even landed a bit early. It was a great flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was out, and the a/c was barely working-not good for a four hour flight. Instead of addressing the issues the flight crew was more interested in chatting with each other. No pre-flight drink service in first class, they rarely even passed through the canin."
Cons: "Ride flight attendants"
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "The boarded quickly and had our flight arrive back to Toronto a little earlier than expected"
Cons: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment systems and the app they said you need to watch movies wouldn't download. Pretty boring over all"
Pros: "It’s been a while since I have flown United, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great the crew on both of my flights were. I flew basic economy and was treated better and had as much leg room as with “upgraded service” from another carrier with an American name. After this experience I’ll go out of my way to book on United. Thanks"
Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Bad baggage claim info"
Pros: "Super fast, easy overnight flight. They kept the announcements short to allow us to sleep."
Cons: "Not as comfy as some planes I’ve been on, and no TVs but they did have WiFi available."
Cons: "The delays, gate changes in a massive airport, and general lack of information made this trip excruciating."
Pros: "Nice and clean than past old metal."
Cons: "Close captioning or English subtitling didn’t work with the app."
Pros: "Crew was great seats are small"
Cons: "Bigger seats! Very good overall"
Pros: "The plane was a newer one with a bit more leg room."
Cons: "The snack was lousy - a very small pack of pretzels. For example, I’ve been on United flights when they gave us maple crisp cookies that were delicious. You would think for a five hour flight they could give you better snack! Drink service was very good."
Cons: "Rudest employees ever and a serious incident. Never flying United again"
Cons: "In flight entertainment was a phone/tablet holder in the headrest. This would have been okay except it required to have the United app installed on the devices which my kids did not have set up. The seats were tight and uncomfortable, plus the flight was completely full."
Pros: "Haven't flown United, now we remember why. Paid extra for comfort and the seats we had were actually more cramped than those around our seating. A long trip with no food, unless you want to pay more than a high end restaurant in Maui. No entertainment made a long, uncomfortable flight unbearable."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Poor food"
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
Pros: "Felt like the pilot was experienced and skilled because It was very smooth in departing and landing."
Cons: "There was a lady sitting on my assigned seat. She said flight attendance told her that is ok to do. I wouldn't mind if she or staff asked me with legitimate reasons. It happened at mt last trip; ending up sitting next to big person instead of sitting with my 12 year old daughter."
Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"
Pros: "THEY WERE VERY CAUTIOUS ABOUT LEAVING ON TIME"
Cons: "coshared flight UA and AC always have issues with printing boarding passes and online check in"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, we were in first class. United provided a good selection of recent movies."
Cons: "United stewardesses have little to no interest in their duties. Questions were clearly an annoyance to them. The leg of flight from Denver to Des Moines was very uncomfortable, seats much to tigh, no leg room. Gate staff in Denver were exceptional. United needs to revisit their time for loading. We preloaded, I had a broken leg, I was traveling with a special needs woman. We just reached our seats when other passengers were prodding us to sit so they could board no time to settle. Not impressed"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Pros: "Staff was very good at their jobs/duties."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Sexy eyes on that one"
Pros: "Overall good, timely flight."
Cons: "United app, with the entertainment options did not work on any of our Android devices. App was up to date, frustrating."
Cons: "Paying for TV when first flight let Us watch app on our iPad for free. Also - lackluster food choices."
Pros: "Enjoyed watching DIRECTV and sleeping"
Pros: "4 hour 15 min."
Cons: "Bring your own entertainment"
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Entertainment system would not go off, no crew attention, we had 2 young kids and they could not sleep with the flashing TV in front of their eyes. Crew did not have the technical chops to even reset the system or try to. To add to the misery, we were seated in the last row where seats won't recline. If after flying 200k miles on United, I get this, I don't know what's worse! Very poor experience on United. Will just donate my miles."
Cons: "No food is lame"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Very clean. Decent room in economy plus. On board food is expensive but tastes ok. Free soft drinks served a couple of times during the flight (4.5 hours)"
Cons: "No in seat screen for movies. Only if you had your own personal device e.g. iPad. Also access was not working consistently across the plane. Was told that only a certain a certain number of seats could access the in flight entertainment system at one time and "to keep trying" and "hopefully someone will drop off soon". In the end they acknowledged the issue and told all passengers to go online for compensation which they honored immediately."
Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."
Pros: "Economy Plus saves a bit New plane"
Cons: "VERY narrow seats Stupid buttons in the arm rest, constant beeping from people pushing them by mistake"
Cons: "The United agent at the gate in Maui was terribly rude. She didn't even acknowledge that I was waiting in line to be helped for about 5 minutes. She went on the plane to check something for me and didn't return until 10 minutes later. When she came back to the counter, where I was still waiting, she started to talk to her coworker about chocolate and how great the crew was. She then turned to me and said, "can I help you?" She didn't even remember that she was in the middle of helping me! When I reminded her she was like "oh that's right" but didn't even apologize. The flight was delayed 2 hours which was pretty annoying too."
Cons: "Didn't take the plane!"
Pros: "Lights were dimmed in the cabin"
Cons: "So many things. My complaints wouldn't change this company's plans. It's clear what United values"
Pros: "The seats we're ok"
Cons: "Delayed, bad service, bad boarding technique, bad cabin crew, and when we landed we spent another 30min taxiing and sitting. My connector flight was delayed two hours and by time I got to San Diego my rental car company was already closed."
Cons: "AFTER boarding, you endeavored to remove 41 passengers. Only interaction was through an overwhelmed flight attendant, who barely spoke english. Was an experience that eroded confidence in safety, something one would imagine from a third world airline. Unacceptable. No direction. Only instruction was to call United."
Cons: "I came up with some pretty bad bruising on my stomach from the seat belt during the landing."
Pros: "Boarding was organized. When we wanted to check in our cabin baggage afraid that the overhead bins may be full by the time we board, we were properly guided that there is ample space, so there was no need to check them in. This saved us waiting time at LAX."
Cons: "We were not allowed to do online check-in because of codeshare, which was not very convenient."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived much earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "An eighty-five mile an hour tailwind got us from Los Angeles to Denver twenty-five minutes early. At LAX, our departure gate was only three gates from the arrival gate of our connecting flight, so no long trek through LAX. Seats on our 737-900 were tight and didn't recline far but, hey, United is the Wal-Mart of modern air travel. What do you expect?!"
Cons: "Business class needs better seats for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The a/c on the plain was not very cold and it needs to blow more air"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
Pros: "The crew was very thoughtful, and courteous."
Cons: "The monitor for my viewing was out of order. There was no complimentary food offered, but there was a nice selection of beverages offered."
Pros: "every thing"
Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
