Pros: "Landing 40 min ahead of schedule"

Cons: "i didn't like the fact that we did the plane did not take off on time from LA making the arrival time very late to DC."

Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Cons: "Baggage fees."

Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."

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: "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."

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

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. :("

Cons: "Had to change my flight- $125 cancellation fee is almost as much as the flight itself. At least let people use their credit on Alaska like Southwest does! Makes me hesitant to ever book with them again."

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "The food, the service, the ability to charge my phone"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."

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: "I liked how quickly I was able to board."
Cons: "I disliked the temperature on the plane because it was too cold. I also don't understand how TSA determines how one gets pre-boarding status. Families were split up. For example, a husband was separated from his wife & child. Is this done on a random basis?"

Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."

Cons: "we boarded on time and were on tarmac for over an hour and a half with no explanation, no beverages."

Pros: "Crew ok ... not engaging"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible flight experience from delta"

Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."

Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."

Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."

Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."

Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."

Pros: "The service, free entertainment."

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"

Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."

Pros: "The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight."

Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"

Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Delta is terrible!!! $100 extra for everything!!! Terrible!!"

Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."

Pros: "Easy boarding, not a full flight, had plenty of room to stretch out, friendly flight crew, extra snacks!"
Cons: "Not much to say I didn't like, few problems with in-flight WiFi but otherwise good."

Cons: "Being late"

Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."

Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."

Cons: "No entertainment. Wifi didn't work."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "no access to sky club"

Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."

Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."

Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"

Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Cons: "Food service and better social distancing"

Cons: "Everything was on time great"

Cons: "Feeling of being cramped"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."

Cons: "Nothing, great job"

Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Cons: "Delayed multiple times"

Cons: "Extraordinarily rude staff, no information, mess with gates, staff not willing to help. Really rude and awful-worst experience ever!"

Pros: "Nice comfortable plane"
Cons: "Takes to long to get off the ground but that really can’t be avoided... still left and arrived at destination on time"

Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Flying these days is no better than taking a local bus."

Pros: "it was fine."
Cons: "annoying to be forced to check our carry ons when there is clearly still room in the overhead bins."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Hard landing!"

Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"

Cons: "Three of my five most recent flights with American have been delayed. Champs."

Cons: "Baggage lost."

Pros: "The entertainment system was very nice. The seats were comfortable!! The crew friendly!!!"
Cons: "Food was lacking!!!"

Pros: "We are safe"
Cons: "Late. I am still on the plane. Did not seem to matter we were late."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and on flight service was on point."

Cons: "The plane was delayed about 3 hours because of mechanical difficulties. After several hours we were moved to another plane...should have been done way earlier."

Cons: "Flight was fine but took 20 minutes to find a gate agent at DCA to let us off the plane."

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"

Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable space, good snacks."

Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Excellent for a short flight. Good entertainment and a smooth ride."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."

Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"

Pros: "Grew was amazing."

Pros: "Getting a meal and drink"

Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Ontime departure."
Cons: "Very small servings of food."

Pros: "Checked baggage was delivered quickly and not damaged. comfortable flight"

Cons: "THere was no entertainment"

Cons: "The crew were harsh and abrupt. The seats were uncomfortable and tilted too far toward to be able to sit in the upright position. The "reclined" position was a more reasonable upright position."

Pros: "Super nice crew and kept us informed of the unfortunate delays."
Cons: "Delay leaving. Relatively hot flight. Also see previous comment for the flight the day before."

Pros: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Cons: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"

Pros: "Economy Basic check-in was easier than I'd expected it to be, security was quick and seamless. Once on board the aircraft, the flight crew kept us informed about possible weather issues (e.g. turbulence), including the approximate time to expect it, how long it might last, and that it would probably preclude in-flight beverage service. Flight attendants offered to provide one-at-a-time beverage service to those "really in need of a drink." I thought that was pretty gracious under the circumstances, and was happy to see that passengers didn't take advantage of the option :-). Looks like United is doing its best to counteract its recent negative publicity. Well done!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"

Cons: "Bag didn't arrive on my flight"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."

Pros: "Staff at airport and cabin crew were mostly nice. At airport, the ticket agent helped correct a mistake and was very helpful."
Cons: "There are TVs on the backs of chairs where they advertise that you can pay to watch shows or movies and play the safety video. That would be fine if you could just turn it off once that's done. But it was too hard to turn off, and after the safety video, they played three ads (you couldn't turn the ads off). At the end of the flight the tvs camenon again. It was also a night time flight - how can you sleep with the screen on. Also, the seat space seemed smaller than usual so the screen was in my face. I hated this flight."

Pros: "Flight attendant was personable and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, and seat belts were super short. I have never had to ask for an extender, but I did on this plane."

Pros: "Ir was good experíence"

Cons: "Delayed because of mechanical problems and did not announce gate changes."

Cons: "It was very delayed"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, loaded/unloaded quickly, free online entertainment was great"

Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."

Pros: "."
Cons: "Crew did not communicate well with ground crew on maintenance issue, causing us to sit on plane for 2:20 hours."

Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."

Pros: "The plane is new and it was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "They change the gate and no one told us anything, just when someone asked they told us, flight was delayed but fortunately we arrived on time. You have to pay for al the entertainment."

Pros: "Standard 2 hour flight. Efficient with no frills."
Cons: "Standard 2 hour flight. Efficient with no frills."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays sand discomfort!"

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "We made it with all our luggage"
Cons: "LONG walk at ORD from gate to gate. Very confusing boarding process."

Cons: "I'm 5"10 and sat in a middle seat. I had zero leg room. Never a prob on other airlines. Thank god flight was short."

Pros: "The crew tried"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of row 38. The last one between 2 tall broad melus there was no room to even put the tray table down.it was the worst flight I ever had. Never United again"

Cons: "There are 2 maintenance problems on 2 different planes that caused major delays in Chicago. This is the last time I'm taking United."

Pros: "Tv, seats"
Cons: "Boarding. I was forced to check a carry on sized bag"

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "We arrived with 10 minutes to make our next flight at ORD. The flight crew could have requested that folks who did NOT have tight connections wait a few minutes so the rest of us could get off the plane efficiently. This did not happen. Folks who lived in Chicago just took their sweet time gathering their stuff while we waited."

Cons: "Arrived at 1:30 AM"

Cons: "Seating on the plane for about 2 1/2 hours"

Pros: "I did not like anything .We had four hours of delay. They did not even have the curtesy of giving us something to eat."
Cons: "At Chicago they charged me # 25(dollars) for my bag that weighed Twenty Five pounds. Why? When I left D.C. I had the same bag with me in the plane. When I asked the people at the United Counter no body could give an answer."

Cons: "Departure was delayed for five hours. Gate changes 4 different times to opposite sides of the terminal. Weren't told honest reason of the delay until two hours in. They boarded half of the plane and stopped when the pilots radioed in that there was a severe hydraulic fluid leak. Updates were supposed to happen every thirty minutes but more than three times they were longer than thirty minute intervals and at one point more than ninety minutes without an update. The representatives at the Chicago gate told us we were all set then the rest of the passengers boarded the plane. The pilot said they were waiting on maintenance paperwork to print off but then we waited an extra hour at the gate on board while we could still hear very loud tests of the hydraulic system. Once we finally left the gate and headed out on the runway for takeoff we stopped just before takeoff and the pilot said we were waiting on PAPERWORK AGAIN! This was another 30 minute delay and we finally took off. We were supposed to arrive home at 10:00pm and instead arrived at 3:00am..."

Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."

Cons: "The only thing that was not good was the wifi-- we used it on our first flight from LAX to Chicago, but from Chicago to DCA we were unable to connect."

Pros: "Boarded and left on time, arrived early."
Cons: "On board media could be upgraded."

Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"

Cons: "Prices to watch Tv"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Very unusual for a US airline. Thank you!"
Cons: "Not enough time between transit. Barely made the connecting flight. Boarding pass did not list which terminal I needed to go so when you hop in the train at O'hare, you are not exactly sure. O'hare is not well-organized. The 1 stop immigration/custom check actually was very slow. The regular check was very chaotic, with officers yelling info everywhere. Felt like I was in the market."

Pros: "Was never in Chicago."
Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "My flight to O'hare from Reagan international was fine but my returning trip was just terrible. After spending extra hours waiting due to a delay, we were about 30 min from DCA and our flight was redirected to N.C where we spend an extra 2 hrs waiting for the plane to re fuel and the reason the airline's flew us to N.C is supposedly due to weather in D.C but i was told by locals that its hardly rained. I had spent 11hrs total in airports yesterday. I could have taken that trip via car in 12hrs and saved myself $300 bucks or more. I am beyond unsatisfied with how my travel experience was. From rude united employees to a bad flying experience i will not use united anymore and frankly, me and all the other passengers on that flight should be compensated somehow for that experience. The only easy thing about this trip was purchasing my tickets through kayak and how well there service is. Thank you"
Cons: ".."

Cons: "Seat was in the middle of the isle, flight attendant kept bumping into me. The guy sitting next to me didn't fit in his seat so he took up most of the room. Very unpleasant experience, especially after spending money to upgrade to more comfort."

Pros: "left on time, the wireless service on the plane is a great idea."
Cons: "they should serve free snacks"

Pros: "Pleasant"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s garbage."
