"Alaska Airlines staff members are super friendly and helpful!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding was a little messy."

Cons: "Better snacks. No cost for checked first luggage"

Pros: "Crew was nice enough. Boarding was easy and allowed pre boarding for kids up to 5years (other airlines do only up to 2 years)."
Cons: "I had come off a long international flight with 2 small children. We had a lot of luggage, which was checked all the way through to our final destination (Portland). No bag drop for Alaska in the international terminal then Alaska would not let me check bags back in for another 3 hrs"

Pros: "Alaska is a great airline."
Cons: "Free food would be awesome."

Pros: "Average"
Cons: "Seat back screens. More space."

Cons: "I really wish you guys told me that in permium seating that the snacks you guys offer had nuts. You guys up sold me by telling me how much I'm going to enjoy the free drinks and snacks on the phone. So I said screw these people seemed nice and not pushy. Very upset that this wasn't giving to me."

Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"

Pros: "Leg room seems a bit more spacious than other flights. Very comfortable. Nice experience."

Pros: "Chargers at the seat, in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The taxi and wait to take off, but not necessarily the airline’s fault"

Pros: "Free WiFi for texting, can watch movies on your phone with their app or rent tablets from the airline. Great service overall!!"
Cons: "Could use a heartier snack, they gave cookies and drinks"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and gave the kids extra cookies!"

Cons: "They did not provide sanck for 4 hr flight and they should keep a few spare head phone"

Pros: "Nice, quick flight"

Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"

Pros: "This was a completely booked flight during Xmas week, and the flight was delayed an hour. Alaska Air did a great job of accommodating these difficulties. When I checked in online they had a notice asking if we would volunteer to check bags for free because they knew overhead space would be tight. Once the flight was underway they announced they'd been able to reroute to save us some of that time. And the Alaska Air/Horizon connecting flight was also delayed, most likely to accommodate this large flight. The aircraft is wonderful--the plugs for devices at every seat plus free entertainment piped to our devices really helps to pass the time."
Cons: "Person announcing the boarding needs some enunciation lessons. She spoke too quickly and on top of (or below) other announcements and even kept talking when she was doing something beneath the podium, so no chance to read lips."

Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."

Pros: "Professional flight attendants"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Efficient. Quick short flight. Everything went smoothly. (Very short flight, so no beverage or entertainment service.)"

Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."

Pros: "Great flight. On time, good weather"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "no services offered on board"

Pros: "The flight attendants made quite a few passes through to make sure everyone had drinks."
Cons: "We were very delayed in taking off because the copilot wasn't there. Many people had connecting flights and the crew did nothing to help them get off the plane first or give any kind of reasrrances that they could make the flight."

Pros: "Luckily the flight is a short flight."
Cons: "No plane available for the scheduled flight. Had to bring one from the hangar. Seems they can anticipate these issues in advance a little better and be more efficient in resolving them as this is what they do on a daily basis. Once plane available, no crew was available. What happened to our original crew? Attendants @ the desk would mumble "updates" in the overhead phone which were inaudible, prompting passengers to constantly approach the desk to ask about flight status. The whole process seemed unprofessional."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Smelled like someone snuck a long-dead rodent into the cabin. Hard to endure for a 4+ hour flight."

Pros: "LOVE the free WiFi for messaging."

Pros: "Smooth take-off and landing. More leg room than American."
Cons: "The plane leaving Chicago was delayed, causing me to worry that I might miss my connection at PDX...which ended up not being an issue because that flight was over an hour delayed."

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Cons: "I will never fly with Alaska again."

Pros: "The plane was new but with no bells let alone whistles."
Cons: "No monitors/screens at all on plane."

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Plenty of leg room. Departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Captain's flight commentary good Crew fine. Plane fine."
Cons: "slow, untimely, disorganized boarding Couldn't get seat assignment online or at airport."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Space between the rows is narrow, I understand it has nothing to do with the flight itself."

Pros: "The flight crew supplied plenty of drinks throughout the flight."
Cons: "Those seats are just never comfortable in economy class. They need lumbar adjustment."

Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Pros: "My flight out of Chicago was delayed for about 3 hours and was no way I was going to catch my connecting flight in Seattle. I called Alaska airlines customer service and they were able to get me rescheduled on two new flights from Chicago to Fairbanks the very next day!! Excellent!!"

Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."

"They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty"

Pros: "Flight canceled without notification"

Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"

Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"

Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."
Cons: "The trip was great"

Pros: "The crew very professional. My flight was on time."

Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats really comfortable!"
Cons: "Headphones sold for $ 2. Headphones preferably free"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were traveling international in Twitter after contacting we were told we can carry one checked baggage but then we were not allowed and at gate they didn’t know the procedure and repeatedly checked our passport Poor customer service"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."

Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."

Pros: "Short lines"
Cons: "Seating arrangements"

Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."

Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."

Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."

Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."

Pros: "No"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."

Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Price"

Cons: "My suitcase was broke at some point and also items in my suitcase."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."

Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."

Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"

Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."

Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."

Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "We had a 2 1/2 delay due to mechanical issues but the crews, flight and ground, did a great job. Thanks."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."

Pros: "The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing."
Cons: "This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating."

Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."

Pros: "I needed to run real fast to the connection flight and gladly got there on time."

Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "Short flight with great views"
Cons: "I was not asked to check my bag, but there was no space for it so I had to take it back off after everyone boarded. No drink or food. Ground crew forgot to get bags at end of fliggt for those of us who checked at the gate. Had to wait quite a while."

"I need to go back to waterloo this week"

"From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!"

"There was no entertainment and again, the seats were very cramped and uncomfortable."

"I left my phone in seat 6C or B where I sat with my husband. The lady with the oxygen tank needed help coming back from the bathroom as we were ready to land. We stopped the movie we were watching on my phone to help her and I guess I forgot it. Please, please return my phone. Samsung note galaxy 20 ultra. It is on airplane mode. Thanks so much"

"Too busy trying to sell AA credit cards"

Pros: "The plane was really clean and they had lots of overhead storage."
Cons: "It was too crowded and cramped and UNCOMFORTABLE and there was a REALLY LOUD kid that would not shut up and nothing was done about it."

Cons: "On time take off would be nice"

Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."

Pros: "The plane is amazing and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was all good."

Cons: "We didn’t even have a pilot, had to call and find one because our pilot that was scheduled “forgot to call in sick”. We were already delayed by 4 hrs so this made it delayed by an hour more!"

Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."

Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"

Pros: "Fell asleep"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like the ability to watch movies"
Cons: "The cabin was hot... air didn’t blow well... the crew was abrasive and rude. I asked simple questions and got long explanations for no reason"

Pros: "Crew was excellent especially the first class attendant very attentive and always checking on you"
Cons: "The food needs to be back to normal for first class and also baggage is very slow almost over 30 min wait"

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean, neat and well maintained. The crew was friendly. Process of checked-in luggage was seamless and straightforward."
Cons: "I found the istructions on some restricted items to be confusing and contradictory between instructions at the airport, the AA website and the TSA website. The agent at the counter was well-informed, though, and it all ended up going well."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."

Pros: "The fact that no one sat next to me believe me it was not a my choice there was just not a body to put in the seat"
Cons: "The staff was not friendly or say hello or goodbye"

Cons: "None of the USB outlets were working in isle 7 A-C"

Cons: "More comfortable seats you can sleep in"

Cons: "Leave a seat empty in the middle could be good for social distancing"

Pros: "Roomy, comfy seats. Thanks for the snack and bottle water provided during covid"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."

Cons: "Plane had to land in a different city due to inclement weather. Very disorganized process, huge traveling setback, never got my travel voucher."

Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"

Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."

Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The crew skipped me for breakfast and i had to ask for food."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Bread rolls stale and inedible. The rest of the flight was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."

Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"

Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Pros: "Eventually, the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Initially delayed by 3hours (mechanical) which was American Eagle couldn’t get their “bucket of bolts” to Springfield, MO on time so we missed our flight out of Charlotte to Barcelona. Then we were rerouted through Chicago, but lost our first class seats and were bumped back to coach. This was after I had bought first class tickets for the entire trip only to be told 3 months before leaving that AA decided to switch planes on our domestic flight so there’s were no first class seats. THEN, in Chicago we tried to get first class seats on British Airways which would have been fine but After being sent to another terminal (after the bus to that terminal had stopped running) we were turned back because British Airways wouldn’t accept the boarding pass that AA had issued us. Now, having to go back to the first terminal to DISCUSS all this, we miss that flight and wind up stuck in Chicago for another 24 hours. Then, that flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we lost a day and a half of our vacation."

Pros: "I got here."
Cons: "Everything else. American cancelled my first flight from MSP to ORD. And when I got to Chicago, it cancelled my next flight to Nashville. The flight I managed to get on departed two hours late. There was no explanation for each of these cancellations/delays. There was virtually zero inclement weather anywhere, save for most of the country’s temperature being nearly equivalent to the surface of Neptune. And, the surly, clueless Chicago-based gate agent was the coupe de grace in my search for a reasonable explanation after which I waited impatiently for this episode to conclude. American get your act together."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"

Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."

Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"

Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."

Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."

Pros: "I have nothing good to say about the flight to LA or the flight back to Chicago from LA."
Cons: "3 of the 4 flights were late, and the 4th was canceled. The canceled flight was due to weather, but AA's response was to connect those of us stranded with a 3rd party vendor - Travelliance - with the promise of a SUBSTANTIAL discount for a hotel (SINCE THE NEXT FLIGHT I WAS GIVEN WAS 17 HOURS LATER!) - and there was, effectively, NO DISCOUNT. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars with you over the years, but this was a bucker of water in the face. I'm sure I'll fly with you again, but any sort of good will I held for AA is gone."

Pros: "we landed. flight was on time"
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude. I think that if they would have smiled, their faces would have cracked. Even a complete stranger said to me, while waiting for the restroom, "I think that they hate us". One young male attendant was friendly and I believe that he was training. I fear for his training experience with this group of women. One of the lavatories was out of order {....on an international flight! Are you kidding!?!}. I think that they searched for the most antiquated plane that could limp across the ocean for this flight. Nine hours of pure discomfort. My poor 71 year old mother! Zero leg room. Tiny little screen for movies on the ceiling of the middle row. trays were not clean. We paid extra for our seats and wondered how bad the seats were for those that didn't. My mother and I determined that this was ranked as one of the worst flight experiences we have ever had. We are grateful for an amazing experience for our return flight or we would have reconsidered ever flying AA again."

Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."

Pros: "First flight from STL to ORD was amazing. I was upgraded to 1st class...not sure why. Robert was a fantastic flight attendant."
Cons: "There was a delay on my second flight from ord to gsp bc there was some type of miscommunication/altercation with some passengers not wearing masks. I have been traveling since 11 am and it was annoying to have to wait another hour."

Cons: "The internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"

Pros: "I eventually got where I was going"
Cons: "Everything? Every single flight was canceled or delayed with really weak excuses. Really shameful customer service too."

Cons: "Not delayed every leg of this trip and extend the travel time from 16 hours to 30 hours!"

Cons: "No Wi-Fi and no food"

Pros: "Flight left on time. There was plenty of room. Nice staff."
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane because the valve for the heat was frozen."

Pros: "Very good service"

Pros: "The boarding was quick due to the size of the plane/amount of people. The flight was short- less than 50 minutes."
Cons: "It was a 2x2 charter flight with very tight seating. There were some seating issues, and the attendant was a little rude about them to some customers."

Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "Temperature was way too warm."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No flight"

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."

Pros: "He was the epitome of the Friendly Skies. Chatted with whom wished to chat was quite near those that wanted to snooze on this early morning flight."

Pros: "Boarding and flight went smoothly and on time. Too short for food or entertainment"

Pros: "My wife was happy"
Cons: "Fixing my own supper"

Pros: "That I didn't have to walk to Fargo. I wasn't dragged off a plane."
Cons: "3 flights to Fargo were cancelled. I was told I would not get to Fargo until 32 hours after my original time I was suppose to land in Fargo. After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."

Cons: "Never on time"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was CRAAAAABY!!"

Pros: "Smooth and positive communication."

Pros: "Gate attendant helped reseat my 2yo so that he wasn't across the aisle from me. Enjoyed the comped food in the Economy Plus seats."

Pros: "Seats felt roomy, in comparison to many other regional planes."
Cons: "Vinyl seats made my back really sweaty on a relatively short flight."

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Pros: "I managed not to use toilet."
Cons: "An epic storm (April 27-May 4) caused my bicycle tour across MO to flood out during our trip. Rescheduling my flight back to CA cost &230..same price as RT. Gouging people leaving a massive flood! The governor of MO declared a State of Emergency yet my trip cancellation insurance didn't cover what was clearly beyond my control. I'm left with some hard feelings."

Pros: "Crew members were awesome and very attentive both at the airport and on board."

Pros: "smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "hold up to board family with 2 much luggage, overhead bins 2 small"

Pros: "Download the United app, it makes the flight better."
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "Too damn small of plane, cramped in and treated like cattle, not valued customers"

Pros: "For the most part the ride was nice."
Cons: "Seats were so small"

Pros: "Because of a 10 minute fix, we had to wait an additional 40 minutes for paperwork. I missed my connecting flight because of this."

Cons: "My friends dad passed away and was unable to get money back to go to his funeral. Plane was a small express plane which was never mentioned. Had to check bag because overhead bins were too small. No wifi. Dad and Kid took my assigned seat."

Pros: "Friendly few, clean plane, and on time"
Cons: "It was way too hot on the plane. I understand it's hard to find a happy medium with people on temperature but this flight was too warm, especially with people traveling with winter wear on."

Pros: "Legroom was a bit tight."

Pros: "Pilot and plane crew seemed good"
Cons: "Takeoff scheduled for 7:45pm, didn't happen until after midnight. Only one agent provided at airline counter to help so stood in line for a very very long time."

Pros: "I'm always comfortable when riding UA. The staff is professional and helpful!"

Pros: "Easy"

Pros: "Both flights left on time and arrived at least 20 minutes early. My bag arrived at the baggage claim ten minutes after I arrived, and all went very well. I'm grateful."
Cons: "All was perfect"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same.as above."

Pros: "The service was prompt and professional. The plane on this trip was clean and in good repair. The snack was simple and tasty. It was a pleasure flying United."
Cons: "The first flight from St. Louis to Chicago was very small. While I don't have concerns about flying in a small plane, I can imagine those nervous about air travel would feel concerned with the size of the aircraft."

Pros: "On time, smooth ride and fantastic landing in a small plane."
Cons: "There is apparently nothing between the floor and the outside of the plane because it was very cold upon entering the plane and it got considerably colder on the route. The cabin temperature was fine but the floor was freezing on both outbound from Bend and inbound."

Pros: "Good communication and helpful."
Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."

Pros: "Everything was great on the flight- we even got a snack ( stroopwafel cookie reminiscent of when I lived in Amsterdam ) and a drink. I haven't flown united in a while and was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Nothing but my flights were short ( under 1 hours)"

Cons: "Completely missed meeting due to 6 changes made during flight - Ask for a refund of some sort and non was given - not even air-miles or ticket recognition. Customer service from United was almost non existent. Will not be flying with united ever again."

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I am still stranded and was given no accommodations so had to pay for a hotel in addition to costing me a full day's wages in missed work. The United staff I spoke with by phone and in person were neither helpful not pleasant. I will go out of my way to never fly United again."

Pros: "The crew. Short and sweet flight."
Cons: "Small seats. Bad coffee."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Delay in air"

Pros: "Glad they waited for me."

Pros: "New (to me) lime sparkling soda And a cookie too! Seemed to be a little more seat and leg room."
Cons: "I only wish your branded credit card did not cost$95.00 after first year."

Pros: "we were 10 minutes early to the gate"
Cons: "super cramped quarters, like touching legs to the next person the whole squirmy flight close... the plane was made for little people."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"
Cons: "Forced to check our carry on suitcase even though there was plenty of room above the seats."
