Read more about Alaska Airlines
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Timing of the flight was always good. Efficient flying. Crew was super helpful too even when passengers were a bit too much."
Cons: "WiFi sucked"
Cons: "A little more room."
Pros: "Crew did a fantastic job"
Cons: "All was well"
Cons: "It was a little chilly."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Better snacks. No cost for checked first luggage"
Cons: "Nothing. I've flown on worse."
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: "Selection of entertainment on a BYO-device was good, especially in the movies category"
Cons: "Weather-related delay is certainly not Alaska’s fault, but the 10-minutes waiting for a gate after landing was excruciating after such a long delay in the first place"
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."
Pros: "Price, itinerary, time of day."
Cons: "The gate at PDX was at least a block away from the airplane, and the customers had to walk outside to the plane in drizzling cold weather. The elderly passengers had a hard time getting to the plane under those conditions! At least at Tucson there were covered mobile concorses."
Pros: "The Crew from check in to flight was amazing! Service with a Big huge smile."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Timing-Fasrer than scheduled"
Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"
Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"
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: "I missed my initial flight to Portland and people with Alaska immediately booked me for the next flight out. It was incredibly reassuring to have their help and patience. Even when there was a mixup with seating, the stewardesses took care of me and made sure I had a seat. Thank you Alaska, you made it right."
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "The customer services of the flight crew and ensuring I had a wheelchair waiting for me I didn’t use any entertainment choices."
Cons: "Having to “tag” my own baggage especially getting a kiosk that had quit printing for other customers. Even though I selected “start over” it didn’t! And since I was a wheelchair passenger with no wheelchair, I was a miserable mess!!! I have never used a bag check kiosk! And paying $50 for 2 bags made this an insult! Rest of service was great!"
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Cons: "The flight attendant went on and on and ON about how turbulent air was reported ahead, just because we're in a smooth stretch doesn't mean we're out of it yet, and so on. Must have been every 10-20 minutes. She just would not stop talking; while her voice was fine in person, over the PA it sounded like a cheese grater taken to my inner ear. I barely slept that flight; it was miserable."
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Cons: "The USB charger on my seat was broken"
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "No comment."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! I was on my way to my bachelorette party in Portland and they were so sweet, congratulating me and even giving my friends and I free drinks! I would definitely fly them again! LOVED IT! :)"
Pros: "Everyone was so kind, thoughtful and timely."
Cons: "Our seats didn't recline, making it hard to rest."

Pros: "Plane had a delayed boarding and no explanation for the delay eas given"
Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."

Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "Very accommodating staff"
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."

Pros: "After we got off the airplane, the flight attendants went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble understanding English find and get to the baggage claim. The service and kindness exemplified by the staff really made the whole experience wonderful."
Pros: "One of the flight crew sang us an original song just before landing. It included directions on safety etc. and it was delightful, funny and sweet. Then when I was in the terminal two of the same crew helped me figure out how to get to baggage claim."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great airline and service!"
Cons: "Small overhead bins. If your carry on is slightly larger you will have to check it."

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and attentive. There were few of us on the plane and they made sure to make us feel safe."

Cons: "Free WiFi."
Cons: "Nothing boarded right onto the plane without any problems"
Pros: "Free checked bags are such a great perk. Complimentary beverages and snacks are nice."
Cons: "Crew was courteous but lacked that spark/ energy you generally get on a Southwest flight. Also, seating is extremely tight and uncomfortable. It’s bearable for a short flight but would be horrid for anything more than a couple of hours."

Cons: "The pre-boarding was very chaotic."
Cons: "Very friendly and attentive flight attendants."
Pros: "We arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule!"

Cons: "Very late - kept pushing the departure and the final departure info quoted arrival a t 7:40pm but in fact we arrived at 8:09pm"
Pros: "Live Tv and Movies"
Cons: "Southwest flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation. Crew members were rude."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seat was just a seat"
Cons: "Nothing! The flight was great. The crew was very friendly, helpful, and courtesy!"
Pros: "Seats new plane."
Cons: "Delayed loading really badly managed little info on problem."
Cons: "Love Southwest, never had delays and the staff are very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding area was in a very cramped area. Flight delayed."
Cons: "No WiFi and no one notified us we were delayed."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "No phone chargers on the plane. WiFi was not available for that particular flight. We sat on the plane at the gate for almost an hour before the plane started moving and the crew said the delays were due to “paperwork”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes after push back and collected cups/drinks within 3 minutes of giving them out."
Pros: "I forgot the guy's name buy one of the crew members was especially funny! Good snacks, comfy seats, solid entertainment."
Cons: "Had a 1.5 hour delay due to a mechanical issue."
Cons: "Even with the air vent open, it was a bit warm. Traveling with my dog, had to pick the case up so she could get some fresh air."

Cons: "Cup of hot tea was very small."
Pros: "Service was great! On-time departure."
Pros: "Flight was amazing!"

Pros: "The flights were in time, boarding was well coordinated."
Cons: "No announcements were made after SW028 landed to inform passengers regarding the long wait on the tarmac."
Pros: "I appreciate that the crew did their best to make everyone happy and comfortable. I also appreciated that since the flight was delayed the crew did their best to make sure the boarding process was quick and as painless as possible."
Cons: "The connection in St. Louis was tight and unfortunately the departure gate was on the other side of the terminal so the Austin passengers had to hustle to make sure to make the flight. I’m not sure why my KTN did not connect to the tickets and so I was not able to utilize the pre-check security, which is a bummer. I have my number on my SW account so I’m not sure why this time it did not connect automatically as it as done in the past."
Pros: "Once again, a Southwest flight crew made the discomfort of flying a little less onerous by being friendly and funny. People were actually laughing out loud. The seats are so small you’re packed in like sardines, the food offering is a lousy bag of pretzels. But the flight crew? They were truly pros."
Cons: "See above — it’s just misery to fly in tiny seats."
Pros: "Had an early morning flight, boarding started on time and was very quick and easy. I was able to get a good seat on the plane pretty easily. Also, deboarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "The planes are always too cold."
Cons: "Very cold!"
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "In wheelchair and needed assistance boarding. In fact there were 3 of us and no assistance. They started boarding others and then that made it difficult to board. I felt neglected and in everyone's way. No food available on flight to purchase. Because of time difference, after landing and customs check, I was hungry but didn't think I had enough time to get anything. If I had known the plane was delayed, I would have gotten something to take on board. I arrived at Ontario Airport at 10 45pm which was 12:45pm by my stomachs time and I hadn't eaten anything since lunch."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "I had to get another ticket at the counter even though I had a ticket already? This put me to the back of the line again."
Pros: "I like the boarding method a lot, everyone should do it that way. The staff is kind and polite overall. Their baggage policy is what brings me back every time."
Cons: "I wish they weren't so stingy with the soda drinks. I was feeling very thirsty and they give you a tiny cup. I tried to get up to get another drink only to get chastised back into my seat to anxiously wait for them to come around again."
Cons: "Almost never used to have a delayed SWA flight. Now it is commonplace. Gate attendants rarely say anything of explanation or apology, as if you will always just be there. Not necessarily so."
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay, not leaving until 8:35."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "the boarding agent was hilarious"
Pros: "Southwest is now my favorite airline. They have the best crew ever and they got the process of boarding downpack."

Cons: "Cramped seating flight was just about sold out"
Pros: "Well organized. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Delayed by 2.5 hours - every 30 minutes or so we got an update saying it'd be another 30 minutes"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Zero entertainment; zero meals (snacks only); cup of soda; couldn't sit with family because boarding pass was at the end of the "Bs." Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Professional crew, even when the obviously drunk woman and her husband in front of us made a stink about 'water service only' on the 23-minute flight."
Cons: "Very crowded flight. The plan sat with no circulating air on the tarmac for 40 minutes waiting to take off. Apologetic pilot kept us in the loop, though."
Pros: "Notifications on time changes, rapid check in"
Pros: "free snacks, comfortable seat, friendly crew."
Cons: "limited channels on free tv there used to be more when they had a different partner. I did watch ESPN for the first time on a flight. The stream was a little choppy on my device"
Cons: "I was disappointed about not getting any consideration on my last two flights after two solid weeks of travel that had me on 12 flights in 14 days. So much for that legendary southwest customer service."
Pros: "Crew were entertaining"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized"

Despite the terrible weather situation, the crew made sure that all passengers were safe before taking off. We were all thankful that Delta made sure to take all precautions to insure a safe flight. Even though the flight was delayed, we were able to still make our connection in Atlanta We're thankful for the effort that Delta and the crew made to get us in the air, but making sure that everything was safe. Being a GA private pilot myself, I know all of the procedures that must be followed in order to get that flight safely off the ground.

Pros: "Flight canceled without notification"
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"
Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."
Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"

Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Jeff was our flight attendant in first class. He is an excellent flight attendant. He has an amazing attitude and his manner made us feel as if we had been friends with him for years."
Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
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: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "The bag service"
Cons: "The flight delays"
Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"
Pros: "We had a 2 1/2 delay due to mechanical issues but the crews, flight and ground, did a great job. Thanks."
Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Cons: "Layover"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
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."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets about 5 weeks before my trip and got to the airport 2 hrs prior. I recieved no seat assignment, just a boarding pass that said request seat. So I requested a seat. Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
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: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. The plane was half full, so the attendants allowed us to move."
Cons: "Terrible landing in Charlotte. The plane was rattling and had an annoying whistle."
Pros: "A comedy of errors that really wasn't funny. My poor elderly parents are exhausted by what should have been an easy non-stop flight in good weather."
Cons: "The service and equipment problems."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "crew was great, plane seemed newer and clean. individual screens worked better than others I've used in flights."
Cons: "newer touch screens were great except viewing angle couldn't be adjusted. standard food was horrible, esp for an international flight; not sure if specialty diets have better meals. kid movies were dubbed into many language options but Chinese was not one for ANY kid films. bathrooms with the same crappy mini sinks that you can't really wash your hands in, esp if someone pukes in it. they should all learn from Japan's ANA airliners with the motion sensor sinks with faucets raised up high enough for you to wash your hands without touching the gross basin."
Cons: "Food, connecting flight long time waiting"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Pros: "Today's trip.was ontime with a great crew. A big turnaround from our last trip."
Cons: "Zip"
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Seat was tiny. Felt crammed in there. I'm just 6ft tall, but couldn't even use the headrest...it was a back rest. No individual inflight entertainment on a 3 hour flight? I've had screens in front of me for hour long flights. Left 30 minutes late with no indication as to why. Just one of the most uncomfortable flights I've had in a long time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "Finally had power outlets. 1 for 3. First class crew great."
Cons: "Didn't honor priority luggage tags. Small seats for 1st class."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, boarding was smooth, made good time in the air despite slight delay"
Cons: "We sat on the plane at the gate and then on the tarmac for quite awhile after some delays, but the air conditioning wasn't working. It was incredibly hot, uncomfortable, and I felt sick due to the temperature in the cabin It's just unacceptable to have to sit there in that condition!"
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Cons: "When we arrived to Chicago we discovered that the airline had tried to "fix" out connecting flight and in the process I was accidentally removed from the same flight as my husband and we were both forced to take detours through London since we had missed our direct flight. Our checked baggage was lost for 2 days. The London airport has more strict rules for carry-on bags and liquids so much of our items were confiscated and the worst part of all was being told at the gate in Chicago that they didn't know why I was removed from the flight but that I would not be allowed to board because they couldn't reach anyone at the American Airlines desk. We pleaded for help for over an hour and were basically asked to sit down and be ignored. I was sobbing when my husband and I were separated and we were worried we might not find eachother in London or in our final destination of Dublin since we had no cell service."
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Cons: "Three hour delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "Crew was nice; not out of their way, though."
Cons: "Food, movies, space"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Cons: "Delayed Swiss flight 8 tue 12 dec 2017 led to catastrophe"
Pros: "Quick"
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Pros: "Nothing! I will make sure to never use United for any flight from now on."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Cons: "The United mobile app as well as my emails stated that the gate was B3. Upon arriving at gate B3 and attempting to board, I was alerted that I was at the incorrect gate. The gate was switched to C11. However, my app did not alert me nore did it reflect the gate change. I didn't receive a text or email update. I had to run to the different concourse nearly missing the fling."
Pros: "They were kind enough to hold the flight as it was the only one today to Tucson!!"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
