Day after our flight my wife and I tested positive for COVID. Cannot rule out nor ignore the fact that Alaska Airlines clearly does not hold safety as a priority since the entire flight crew was unmasked. Will never be flying Alaska airlines again.

Day after our flight my wife and I tested positive for COVID. Cannot rule out nor ignore the fact that Alaska Airlines clearly does not hold safety as a priority since the entire flight crew was unmasked. Will never be flying Alaska airlines again.

Pros: "Upgrade to premium was amazing. Crew was perfect"
Cons: "Flight on time and not wait 30 min on the runway to get to a gate once landed"
Cons: "This was about as uncomfortable as a Spirit flight. The seats felt like fold out chairs and they didn’t even recline."
Cons: "Flight attendants too fast in aisle. Not around enough"
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and hospitable to the crew. I have been flying ASIANA many times and enjoy the flight as well."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for nearly an hour."
Pros: "NOTHING ㅗ"
Cons: "GROUND SERVICE. The flight was delayed causing me to miss my connecting flight. The ground staff at BWI said they could do nothing about it. I spent an extra $1000."
Cons: "Really old plane. Not well cleaned. Bring sanitary wipes for seat and tray tables. But cabin crew is top notch."
Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."
Pros: "Ride was nice, friendly staff"
Cons: "Comfort can always be better"
Pros: "We got stuck with the very back seats, that don’t recline. Was rough as it was an overnight flight. I liked that we had an early arrival!"
Pros: "I love everything about Alaska! The vibe, the Stewardess, good pilot, a good amount of room, good entertainment."
Cons: "Have the available food options that are in your magazine on all flights. Access to Internet faster."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable. Online wifi/entertainment on personal devices is glitchy."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "They took away our seats and then gave us new ones but we were separated. My son is 2 and I was t able to sit with him and my wife."
Pros: "Roomier enough seats, polite crew"
Cons: "We were on the last flight of the night and they made us deplane out on the tarmac and take a shuttle into the terminal. It added extra 15-20 minutes to the trip"
Cons: "Hour early with tail winds - all fabulous"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Crew was great. Easy on and off plane."
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight. No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"
Pros: "The female attendant went above and beyond. She was kind, thorough, and helped make the flight the best I’ve been on with Alaska Airlines so far!"
Pros: "Nice comfy seats, leg room"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Pros: "The plane was on-time. Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were very helpful. They helped passengers get to their seats, find places for their luggage. Entertainment options were good. Bags arrived within a reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more food options or at least stock a few more of the ones they have. The fruit and cheese tray sells out early making it a long flight without real food. I don’t consider chips and cookies lunch food."
Pros: "One beverage cart pass during a very long flight. No food available unless preordered. Not even the obligatory mini pretzels."
Pros: "Free movies, comfy seats"
Cons: "The WiFi doesn’t work. They didn’t give out any snacks just drinks."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and apologetic that I couldn’t watch movies."
Cons: "Would have loved to have a working headphone jack for the movies...5 1/2 hrs with no other entertainment makes for a very VERY long flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Go go Wi-Fi was terrible...spotty service for about 20 minutes, but ultimately the crew just shut off the Wi-Fi. Ran out of food 1 hour into the 5 hour flight. were they not expecting a full flight?"
Cons: "No soft drinks. Really."
Cons: "alaska was just running behind today. boarded 15 mjnutes late and touched down 40 mjnutes behind schedule. should have gone southwest"
Pros: "I would have to get the machine that the crew already tried to fix on a prior flight! My bad luck, for sure. And the2 people next to me talked the entire trip. So I thought I could just listen to music, but no. The flight attendant said that was gone together with the games. Not a good flight for me. I even moved to the bank of the plane, to read my book in peace, only to end up hearing 1 very loud FA talking!"
Cons: "Read above."
Pros: "I'm an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters."
Cons: "We were bumped and downgraded because staff routed us to the wrong terminal. What a mess the Virgin takeover is at San Diego."
Pros: "I loved the mood lighting on he plane, as well as the in seat media and food ordering functionality. I’m blown away and will be flying Alaska any time I can get. Probably the most comfortable economy seat I’ve ever sat in."
Cons: "Entertainment system 40H not operational. This is not the first time. Overall the plane seemed a little run-down and in need of maintenance. Crew had a “couldn’t care less” attitude about passengers, very unusual in TK flights."
Pros: "Alaska is great don’t become united or American"
Pros: "I was sitting next to a couple that were all over each other the whole flight. The flight crew provided them with alcohol throughout the flight, even though they were loud and disruptive."
Cons: "Shady business practices, to change a flight there is a 125.00 charge. Unethical and I will never fly with them again. Many other options, including driving or Amtrak. Most airlines suck, Alaska is another crappy, money-hungry airline."
Cons: "My entire checked bag was full of my tattoo equipment which is my livelihood. Most of my equipment was destroyed and now I have to spend money to replace it all ASAP or I can’t work! I’m more than upset!"
Cons: "Seats need more padding."
Pros: "Good seat in exit row."
Cons: "The delays @ SFO never fail to ruin a trip."
Pros: "Efficient and competent. One of the better airlines out there."
Pros: "All the staff was friendly and did the best they could"
Cons: "Had the last seets in row 32 Very uncomfortable. Was not given anything to drink for over an hour. When the meal trays reached us in the last row of seats, no more hot meals available..... We were by the bathrooms in the back of the plane. Every time someone use the bathroom the doors kept slamming and there was really no peace to close your eyes or sleep if needed on the long trip Very disappointed. Jerry"
Pros: "The people I sat with made for great company."
Cons: "Flight was changed, so my premium seat was canceled. Luggage was delayed significantly. No technology availability."
Pros: "Alright, just a normal flight"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service. I needed a wheelchair and I was treated exceptionally well."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "We were awakened at 130am for breakfast!!!!!! Who eats in the middle of their sleep."
Cons: "Issue with first plane meant 20 passengers bumped to later flight. I volunteered and that flight was delayed upon arrival. :/"
Pros: "Relaxing environment"
Cons: "Occasional wafts of restroom smell"
Pros: "Will try to avoid Alaskan airline at all cost"
Cons: "They forced me to take my luggage in San Francisco. My flight was to HK. I bought that as one ticket with transfers and they treat my Asian travel as a separate ticket even though it was suppose to be as one. Very disappointed. At the gate in SLC lady harassed me about my passport bag on my neck. Something wrong with their heads! How about harassing passengers if they have hats or coats?"
Cons: "Of the 4 my flights between SFO and SEA in the last 3 weeks exactly none departed on time."

Flight attendant in our cabin is excellent!

flight was delay, pilot was keep saying optimistic messages that were misleading. Like "refueling will take 10min" but he forget to say they will also inspect engines that will take much longer. and at the end we were 2h later :(

The hot pockets provided as meal gave me terrible acid refluxes. Everything else was good.

The cheap seats are unbearably cramped. I'm 5'7 and my knees hit the seat in front. Turned a five hour flight into a back breaking disaster.

Had to call customer service prior to the trip (for Hawaiian airlines). Utterly horrible experience

upgraded my seat 100$$ apiece so 200 bucks had a child kicking my chair for 4 hours snd the strraming video kept going out . fligjt there was great 👍

Flight attendants had a little more attitude then expected, once they handed out food they came back literally within 5 minutes with a garbage bag, my advice would be to come in 10 min after people start eating and drinking.

Pros: "Crew was amazing, great service"
Pros: "The views from the plane"
Cons: "A bit more room"
Pros: "Short island hop but still great staff is just HAPPY"
Cons: "Hawaiian airlines is good , United is the worst airline ever"
Pros: "They helped me with my little suitcases. As carry on."
Cons: "The system couldn’t charge my phone. And the crew showed me to use the back seat."
Pros: "It was on time leaving OGG and landing at SFO. Our luggage was delivered intact."
Cons: "Once at the gate, we had to wait ~20 minutes for it to become available. Did they not know we were coming?"
Pros: "Very friendly attendants, ran on time, comfortable, cute safety videos."
Pros: "I liked the plane design in the interior. The extra room ecumenic seats were great. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The free beverage drinks were good. Sandwich was ok but not as good as meals we get from foreign airlines. You really should have at least from free TV shows or documents besides offering to show movies for a free. Fortunately I'm more of a book reader but I know many would appreciate some improvement in this area."
Cons: "Being stuck on the tarmac for 40 minutes with screaming children was not the best :("
Pros: "Flight arrived early, I upgraded to an extra comfort seat and it was SO worth it!!! The flight attendants were all very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Snacks are expensive, but I guess that’s expected"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in the front of the plane. Very attentive and quick flight attendants."
Pros: "only airline which servers meal but not for vegetarian reserved seating but not much available option to buy expensive economy plus"
Cons: "-- Meals were non-vegetarian only. That is not caring about customers who are vegetarian. -- there were only single seats and not for couple. -- add on for economy plus is outrageous $0 for each segment. I would consider $40-50 reasonable. -- it is silly that there was not a single show or movie free for economy. such a waste."
Pros: "Friendlier-than-average flight attendants and complimentary meal."
Cons: "NO vegetarian meal options."
Pros: "Mostly empty flight, able to lay down. Rum punch"
Cons: "Paying for shows and movies"
Pros: "No"
Cons: "Hawaiian airlines has constant interruptions of their in flight entertainment.....Super long commercials and ads for Hawaii and then constant interruptions- at least 10, to tell you whenever the attendants are walking down the aisle to deliver a napkin or whatnot. It's a bit excessive compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Food and service was great! Cannot believe they served food for free!"
Cons: "They charged way too much for entertainment. Charge one price to watch any movie or want, not $8 per movie!"
Pros: "nice crew, clean plane, free meal."
Cons: "no wifi, and not communicated in advance. made it seem like we'd selected our economy seats in advance when really, we'd only "requested" those seats, and didn't sit together. this was misleading at time of booking and very frustrating. no wifi + no free entertainment = mildy frustration."
Pros: "Very good, free upgrade and flight landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "We bought the tickets (2) together but when was the time to check in and select our seats there were no seats next to each other. This is the first time I see this!!! We had to pay extra $160 to upgrade and get two seats next to each other."
Cons: "We had a 3 hours delay and no one could explain what was going on"
Pros: "Wow, still serving snacks and a meal. Who else does that? And complementary wine. Left on time, arrived early, bags came right away. Why haven't I been flying Hawaiian?"
Pros: "I had wheelchair service & the staff was very good."
Cons: "One of our two checked bags did not arrive. After many problems we were finally told it would be delivered to our home between 10 & 11 p.m. It did not happen & I kept phoning the 2 numbers we had, no one ever answered. There were 10 of us celebrating our 50th Anniversary. AT 2.30 am I finally went to bed pretty upset It was left at my door at 5.30 a.m the next day. Poor communications after a wonderful celebration in Hawaii."
Pros: "When we checked in it would have been helpful to have a crew member tell my husband and I that we were not sitting together so we could have tried to address. We didn't notice until we were boarding. The service cart was busy more than our flight to HI."
Pros: "FOOD AND DRINK SERVICE"
Pros: "Seat upgrade (to comfort class), very friendly flight attendant, decent food / hot meal"
Cons: "Rude personnel at gate"
Cons: "My sister and I were not assigned seats on our boarding passes. There was another gentleman there with us who also didn't have an assigned seat on his boarding pass. We were all waiting at the gate for half an hour but there were no Hawaiian Airline employees to help us. They started boarding people on the flight and we were just standing there at the gate with nobody to help us. Finally I ran over to the adjacent gate that was also run by Hawaiian and asked if they could help. Initially they told me to go back to the gate but I expressed my concern that our flight was already boarding and I needed a seat so they finally helped. The gentleman tried doing the same thing but came back saying "They yelled at me and told me to come back to this gate". This is so rude, unprofessional and disorganized. It certainly left me with a bad impression of Hawaiian Airlines, which is too bad because I will be traveling to Hawaii quite a bit this year."
Pros: "- Food was decent - Staff was kind and seemed happy"
Cons: "- Headphone jack was out of service. - All entertainment for the long flights is pay per use - Touch screens very frustrating - Flight status page was unavailable during the last 30 mins of the flight (the most interesting part)"
Pros: "Well maintained plane, frequent service including complimentary drinks and meal."
Pros: "Once on the plane the seats were comfortable and the meal was good. Nice to get a meal for no extra charge."
Cons: "Flight out Airline gave me a standard seat although paid for extra room. I have a bad back so needed the room to sit forward in my seat. The row in front of me was extra room and the family sitting there said had booked their reservation the day before the flight. Same thing happened on return flight but I was smart enough to call ahead and fix. but got bounced around on the phone to 3 people including tech support to confirm seats. Bery frustrating. Boarded us 30 minutes late, no one knew what row was called as could not hear the announcements. People were being sent to the back of the line. Complete chaos. Then the unprofessional gate crew told about 200 of us that the captain wanted to leave and the door would close in one minute so hurry up. Not a fan of the airline."
Pros: "Staff was amazing and the flight reminded me of "the old days" lol. ezceptional.in flight service and comfort"
Pros: "everyhing seeme o g smoothly. th service was good and I enjoyed h business class. on trp ck to sfo, i agin ttrVELLED BUSNESS class. Unfortunately there was a crying baby 4 seats over. it cried for over 2 hours and I felt sorry or the eole who had paid for first class tickets to be so disturbed. Baby not HGawaiian's fault but wis they would put all young fhildre together in bak of play. or have flights that exclude children under 2 yars old."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. Some crew memebets very nice others not. All in all it was an okay experience. I don't usually complain but there were a few things that seemed a little off about the service. Not expecting anything special but a little kindness and thoughfullness when possible is appreciated."
Cons: "No food option for vegetarians on flight. Crew member said I may have had an option when I booked the ticket but if I didn't want chicken I should just not eat. I would hope they would have a few extra vegetarian meals on hand for passengers who may stupidly and mistakenly not selected that during booking.. The touch screens are poor quality, not a huge deal but frustrating to have to tap so many times. With most of the extra comfort seats around me empty I was not allowed to move to one of them from my economy seat. Not asking for extra service but it seems like it should be fine to move if there are completely empty rows all around. Not sure if the crew members are not allowed to give extra treatment to passengers or what."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines does a really good job in the very competitive market of the airline industry. In-flight entertainment and food is a huge bonus. My only suggestion would be to board from the back of the plane first. Both of our flights, other passengers had used our overhead space as we were the last boarding section."
Pros: "Besides the 15 minute delay which was pretty much made up, everything was wonderful."
Pros: "Loved the customer service all the way. All of the employees were very attentive and were genuinely interested in helping everyone."
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like. I really liked everything."
Pros: "The seat I was given was so nice. Appreciate being given an aisle seat with more room. Appreciated the meal and snacks."
Cons: "Purchased the ear phones to watch a movie. There is no complimentary movies. Seems kinda cheap. But over all experience was good. Thank you."
Pros: "they fed us dinner and gave us a free glass of wine!"
Pros: "Modern plane, plenty of leg room, free meal, friendly staff."
Cons: "Screaming children."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Pros: "Service was great and food was good,"
Cons: "Really cramped and were surrounded by 5 screaming babies the entire flight. Would be nice if the babies could be kept to a certain part of the plane."
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Nice service, decent food."
Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. And service was good."
Cons: "TV controls didn’t work. So I couldn’t watch anything for the 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Cons: "Got in early"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "Being on time."
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: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Both flights were on-time, no gate changes. Staff was friendly enough, and seat back entertainment was appreciated. Everything went as you always hope it does for flights!"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 3 hours and I still don’t know why."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Provide coffee at least"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Free wifi, free upgrade to first class"
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."
Pros: "Nice crew. Very smooth flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "My belongings stolen"
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: "Nothing. Just the pilot"
Cons: "Everything. Bad communication. 1 h delay. Then 3 hs in the plane. We ran out of gas. 2 more hours taxiing Never seen something similar. I really hope my mileage refund."
Pros: "Made it home."
Cons: "delays."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty goid"
Cons: "They made a horrible mistake by getting the bag count or weight wrong and we had to go back to the gate and it cost us 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."
Pros: "I love your entertainment selection. also the comfort of seat and it's on time."
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Sightsee"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Cons: "No personal TV for entertainment"
Pros: "The boarding was done well"
Cons: "This was a 6 hour flight so American could at least have offered a better choice of in flight food purchases"
Pros: "Quick boarding, near empty flight."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "extra leg room but I had to pay for it"
Cons: "This should only be used for important communications. And to not offer food on a 6 hour flight is horrible."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Internet slow to access."
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Pros: "Old plane"
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: "Sits were not comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ride flight attendants"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Cons: "Food was expensive and not well put together."
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
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."
Pros: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"

Check in and boarding were very smooth. Our crew took care of us. The seat back entertainment was poor. The ones that are better are the touch screens that have movies and games and most importantly, content for kids. This was a rather long flight (OGG to SFO) for a bunch of kids to deal without interesting in flight entertainment.

Pros: "Nice and clean than past old metal."
Cons: "Close captioning or English subtitling didn’t work with the app."
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
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."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Almost full flight. By the time the food cart reached the back if the plane, it was damn near empty (nothing decent to eat)."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Seats were very comfortable in first class. Very happy with that experience for short haul flight. Enjoyed the service. Flight attendant checked on me multiple times and offered beverages."
Cons: "Snack/food choices."
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
Pros: "Friendly attendants and a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight and poor food choice"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the food was excellent. I was provided with plenty of snacks and drinks and I felt like I never went without!"
Cons: "I could’ve used more direction once we landed on where to go and what to do."
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: "Customer svc was able assist us so we can all sit together since our original seats we were all separate."
Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their jobs/duties."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Sexy eyes on that one"
Pros: "Lots of space and please take attendants"
Cons: "I didn’t have the vegan meal I ordered however they did give me a replacement"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. I got to watch 2 movies which made the time fly by."
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
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 fare"
Cons: "Flight attendant chided me for not reading menu beforehand. On one of the flights I had to shout out to thrm to even get a drink since they didnt stop at my seat. No space for a bag on the aisle seat on the 777."
Cons: "There were no tvs on the diet flight you had to use your own device. On the second flight you had to pay to watch tv. It's free to watch movies in American Airlines!"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
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: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Cons: "never flying united."
Cons: "I came up with some pretty bad bruising on my stomach from the seat belt during the landing."
Pros: "Everything was fast"
Pros: "the layover waiting time was relatively fast! Also, the united airlines staff was very helpful in answering any questions I had."
Cons: "I did not like that my first plane coming out of eugen had about an hour delay and I had to rush to my second flight. If it hadn't been for me being guided and me basically running I might have missed my second flight."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."
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: "legroom"
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."
Cons: "An old plane with only public TV. American crew is not too pleasant compared to the English crew on our other flight"
Pros: "We ended up getting a free bag check because the flight was full."
Cons: "One free bag check not included. Both legs of our flight were delayed. Even though I had brought an iPad, I couldn't figure out the entertainment system and couldn't download the entertainment app from the Apple app store (I couldn't get the store to open on the onboard wireless system to download the app)."
Cons: "Old plane - no build in screen/entertainment system! Only access would have been thru WiFi, but servers were down pretty much all the time. Most movies would have required a specific app, which was also not accessible."
Pros: "Plane was only one-third full, it yook off on time and we got in ahead of schedule. What's not to like?"
Cons: "I was Pre TSA approved one way, but not the other. Why?"
