Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Pros: "service and accommodations."
Cons: "Ran out of a meal that I wanted. One flight attendant forgot to hand me utensils with my dinner meal."

Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, I didn't eat anything but the snacks are fine. I don't think there is any "entertainment" unless you pay for it but that's okay."

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"

Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."

Pros: "Late taking off. Pretty much on time for arrival. The pilots made up an hour."

Pros: "Quick flight. Took longer boarding than air time!"

Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Cons: "Kept the lights on for too long serving dinner. Forgot to serve the middle section beverages during breakfast."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight, causing me to be much further delayed coming home. Spent all today miserably tired at work. I also sat in front of a very obnoxious man who was very loud and no body was telling him anything about video chatting on his speaker phone during take off."

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "Great flight, no issues."
Cons: "Dont have any issues"

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "They brought lots of water"
Cons: "Crew member threw mini pretzels on my lap when I was dozing off no protein for vegetarian lots of carbs why not to give some yogurt for protein for vegetarian it's not that we are vegan have more space for middle seat Teach crew not to throw food on somebody's lap and startle them"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

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."

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."

Cons: "Will never fly American again"

Pros: "On time, no issues, friendly and professional staff."

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "Tuve 2 paradas antes de llegar a destino y realmente estaba asustada de que la maleta no llegará junto conmigo a destino pero lo hizo! Además todos los vuelos salieron a tiempo, todo funcionó muy sincronizado"
Cons: "La comida no me gusto tanto, aunque no estaba tan mal tampoco, quizás un menú para niños estaría bien que tuvieran."

Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"

Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."

Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."

Pros: "Free snack and drink"

Cons: "Roomier seats"

Pros: "Good job"

Cons: "The seats are too narrow"

Cons: "Bigger seats and food service"

Pros: "Worst experience I’ve ever had traveling and I travel a lot. United needs some better works and to compensate for my 14 hours of sitting in the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Everything that happened was completely shitty...."

Cons: "Seat was insanely small"

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."

Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""

Pros: "crew was SO pleasant! respectful of sleeping passengers came around with snacks and drinks then came around a bit later with coffee and water in case anyone needed a refill or missed it the first time"

Cons: "Never enough food selections"

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"

Cons: "This is the fourth time that I've been bumped off of a flight because United overbooked. I'm in the military and each time I was trying to get home to family or fly family to me. I will never fly with United again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"

Pros: "I had window seat"

Pros: "Everyone associated with ensuring customer satisfaction are to be commended."
Cons: "Not Applicable...................................."

Pros: "This was the final leg of our Toronto to Orange County trip. It was 1 ½ hours. We got on fast and took off on time. I slept through most of it..."
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services..."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours. Moved gates 3X's to a different terminal twice. Landed at different airport with a 1hr bus ride. Nothing good. No compecompensation. Booooo."

Cons: "Extra for carry on extra for movie,extra to eat,cramped sitting for 4 hours,earphone jack broken,screen control broken,keep paying more for less,sucked"

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Cons: "Couldn't make"

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Pros: "no delays"

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accomodating. What a great experience!!"

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."

Pros: "-Avoided the foul toilet -No overbooked passenger was clubbed into submission & dragged off.. although the threat hung in the air..."
Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"

Pros: "Superb crew With lights dimmed steward found me and brought me a drink Just a mention about how I would like one during routine service I felt got special service but they probably do that for everyone Very nice Felt crew went out of their way to make sure all nerds taken care of!"

Cons: "So crowded it was unbelievable. The seats are jammed together way too tight"

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"

Pros: "Ditto"

Cons: "I think United is all about themselves and not the customer that group boarding is the worse and I travel first class and there was no food on the plane they had the nerve to announce it did not get a meal I do not think that is fair for $159 the company that I work for is about fifty of us and I will not be recommending any of them to you guys your special seats is only about who wants to pay for it like I said only about yourself United"

Pros: "On time, new plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "2 hour plus delay. After we boarded an additional delay due to maintenance paperwork. I missed part of a work meeting because of this."

Pros: "Everything ran on time in a smoothly Manor..."

Pros: "I ALWAYS LOVE THE SMILING FACES OF THE CREW"
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"

Cons: "Short-staffed, so short tempered workers.kiosks did not work. Nickled and dimed on everything. Like flying in prison. No light and a cold hard bench seat. Awful."

Cons: "Computer systems were down and delayed boarding by almost 45 minutes."

Pros: "The staff was surprisingly welcoming for a budget airline. Everything went very smoothely and both my flights on this round trip arrived early. Well done!"

Pros: "When we landed and exited the plane"
Cons: "Charging for carryines just ain't worth it. I'm not ever flying frontier or spirit. The extra cost for no hassle will be worth it."

Cons: "Look like frontier is always late"

Pros: "Attendants were friendly, plane was clean, and the experience was overall great."
