Pros: "Alaska airlines is terrific!!"

Pros: "The crew on Alaska is always great. They always engage in conversation and seem to be in good moods, and not cranky. I like the little prop planes. Plus the complimentary beer and wine is fantastic. What happened to giving the consumer a little something on any other airline? I mean I feel like I have to fight for a cookie."
Cons: "We were rushed on both flights I took this week with Alaska. It was to make up for lost time. It just was a jumble at the gate. It made up for the time but it feels like cattle being herded. And I hate that. But I was happy with being on time so, good and bad I guess."
Pros: "Your typical airlines for check-in, baggage etc but I was pleasantly surprised when our seat assignments were together for the return trip w/out having to select them. Baggage was extremely fast on the outbound flight but took a few minutes on the return flight."
Cons: "Again, as with most airlines, the seating room leaves a little bit to be desired but the leg room was adequate for a 6'4" man."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes gate attendant was not informing us of what was wrong... it caused a lot of confusion and chaos. They didn't have beverage service and announced, " with the tailwind and the bumps we've decided there's no time for the beverage service ". The flight took the same as usually and the bumps we hit were on decent and the service would have been completed by then.... Horizon is lame, they give the Alaska Airlines name a black eye!"
Pros: "Great new modern plane with power at every seat!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."

Cons: "No wifi on-board."

Pros: "It was fast and friendly. They took a lot of guesswork out and made us feel safe."
Cons: "The planes were a bit small for flying 6+ hours. I started getting restless at having to sit in the same position for that long."
Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "Flight were on time"

Pros: "Very courteous and pleasant"
Pros: "Nothing too much money for a two hour flight with no amenities. Get rid of the awful snack pack."

Pros: "Great flight attendants. First Class food left a lot to be desired. Chicken pasta was lukewarm & only small amount of chicken"
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Dirty greasy window & trash in the seat pocket."
Pros: "I love upgrading into the better seats. I love the leg room, and the flight was uneventful, which always makes me feel safe."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't as nice as most flights I've been on. I wish there were more/better snacks. The plane was REALLY cold on both my flights. I even brought a blanket on the second flight and I was still freezing. I did have the air turned off, if you're wondering."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "The crew had an amazing personality. They definitely enhanced my experience"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight crew could have been more attentive. Jackets and coats were not collected during preboarding until last minute, by then I had already put mine away."

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "3 hours late!!!"
Cons: "It felt like the flight attendant had a long day. Chairs weren't super comfortable."
Pros: "Departure dealyed more than 2h."

Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule.

They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "ATL-JAX quick flight, comfy seats and you could actually roll your suitcase down the middle aisle. No entertainment on either flight. Drink service was available."
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Loved the TVs"
Cons: "The space was too small"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row and the bathroom smell was hard to deal with."
Pros: "Cabin service was coffee or water. Short flight tome of 45 minuted."
Cons: "Only offered cookies...would have liked nuts."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late flt"
Cons: "The hard landing did not inspire confidence."
Pros: "depart and arrived on time"
Cons: "cramped in coach"
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
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: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I get picky. Crew was awesome. Helpful and friendly. The wifi was horrendous and wouldn't connect"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Boarded, day on the runway for nearly 3 hours, and then cancelled. No hotel allowance and all hotels near LGA full."
Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."
Cons: "Easy boarding. On time departure and arrival. Great entertainment (watched Sports Center the whole way) so the flight seemed to be faster than it was."
Cons: "After flying all night from EZE to ATL the flight to JAX was delayed multiple times until DL changed aircraft. We were exhausted and ended up arriving hours late. The gate agent said we shouldn't take an earlier offered flight if we wanted to collect our luggage when we arrived because the luggage would stay with our original flight, yet it was already in JAX when we arrived. They lied."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay after delay, then missed connection."
Pros: "It was a great experience and the overall trip was great. I'm glad they made us change planes because there was something wrong with the plane. We had a delay and had to get a new plane. I'm glad they found the problem with their check up a on the ground than us be in the plane in the sky."
Cons: "Nothing really everything was well. Any problems all had a reason and the overall experience was great. Thank you for bringing me safe to my destination :)."
Pros: "Check in was great. TSA was a breeze"
Cons: "Everything went wrong at the Delta gate. I got there an hour before my flight was to leave. Had a conversation about my seating arrangement with the gate supervisor. Went to the restroom and when I came back maybe five minutes later he closes the gate doors as he sees me walking back. Long story short, I missed my flight and they refused to put me on another. Even after I offered to pay for a new one. He claimed my card was declined which was impossible given that I had bought some items at the snack bar and opened my bank app to verify. even as I try to keep calm they stand there and laugh in my face. It was the worst experience ever. Never flying Delta again."
Pros: "Terminal was easy to get through and security had no line. Much better than other Delta terminal at JFK."
Cons: "Flight attendants took a long time to come after I pressed call button. I could see they weren't doing anything too important."

No drinks or snacks. Otherwise good flight.

Everything was ok , .

Cons: "Missed my connection due to excessive delay at Heathrow"
Pros: "I didn’t like the crew on board .. everyone else was good, there was a flight attendant on my flight very rude, I asked if it was possible to get an additional snack, and she looked at me, she told me something that I didn’t understand , she placed an extra snack on my tray.. then she picked it up and took it away from me … that was extremely rude .. I am a 71 years old woman and I was never treated the way the attendant treated me"
Cons: "You need to provide a better customer service to your passengers, you need to train them and evaluate them to treat passengers with respect, if they have a job it is because we people use your airline not the other way around"
Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Someone stole flight attendants wallet, the plane was fairly empty but they still crammed us in the back. Had to wait for police to board plane to find out who stole wallet."
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "crew was miserable, they should retire, seems as if they do not like working with people, do not like their job. I have had many many flights with aa to know the difference"

Cons: "The hostess was a little short but she was working alone, Thank you for sitting in front of plane."
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "We arrived early and everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "Seats were really tight. Made worse by the person in front who had him s seat back."
Pros: "Everything no complain"
Cons: "Everything no complain"
Pros: "We arrived in Charlotte early and I had enough time to grab a quick meal and hit the road."
Cons: "None. Americans Airlines has the best airline service."
Pros: "Couldn't get own crew closed gate and would not open door."
Cons: "Crew closed gate before the 10 min delayed time, knowing connecting passengers would not be able to make it. From a flight 10 min late."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "The crew did try to make us feel comfortable considering the air challenges"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely hot and it took a extraordinary long time to resolve the issue. Dont understand why the aircraft was not checked prior to the flight so alternate plans could be made. Upon connecting the crew in the terminal and at the gate was not very accommodating. Very disappointed with American airlines and this experience"
Pros: "Snack service was the quickest I have seen in a while.Very smooth landing."
Pros: "Planes were clean and spacious"
Cons: "Airline didn't seem prepared with crews. Both legs had crew mgmt issues."
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."
Pros: "Smooth ride and free wine"
Cons: "3 hour delay waiting for pilots"
Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Easy changes to my first flight reservations to avoid catastrophe."
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Cons: "Didn't like the way the flight attendant attitude was to me. No politeness what so ever. Turbulence was scary, from the hurricane coming in. And they no complimentary drinks or snack because we landed go quickly. It makes no sense to even have an in service flight with it only being 45 min fight."
Pros: "Flight was good. No delays. No hassle"
Cons: "I boarded in group 2. A lot of the overhead space was already full due to the large number of priority passengers. This led to people having to go to the back to find space for bags. That creates a lot of jams at the end of the flight. Also, younger passengers often try to rush out of the plane rather than waiting for their row. This should be stopped."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."
Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."
Pros: "The Jacksonville airport"
Cons: "The whole Reagan expierence from check in thru boarding the staff was rude and inefficient"
Cons: "It was a narrow, regional aircraft, so I was squeezed into my row next to a large man. My seat was the first in economy, so I was bumped everytime the beverage cart made the jog in the path from First Class. The flight attendant never apologized."

On time departure and arrival.

Flight was cancelled because they didn’t have a plane. Waited in the airport for hours after being delayed 4 hours initially. Had to drive 15 hours to Florida. Never flying Allegiant again and will never in a million years recommend this poorly constructed airline.

Pros: "Everything (except the minimal seats)"
Cons: "Cushioned seats"
Pros: "This was my first time flying out of South Bend and I loved the smallness of the airport and the option to take a direct flight to Vegas to cost family. No long lines and crowds made it easy to social distance."
Cons: "I would have liked it the seat reclined slightly or had the adjustable headrest so my head wouldn't flop back and forth while I took a nap."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."
Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."
Cons: "The padding on these seats."
Cons: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Allegiant plays games with seating to try to milk more money from passengers."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. It made me sick thinking that im stuck on this plane that they never clean..in the peak of sick season."
Cons: "More space under the seat in front of me for my carryon"
Pros: "Crew unfriendly, unprofessional, and not courteous,"
Cons: "Small seats, flight was late"
Cons: "Built in headrests on the seats."
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"
Pros: "Nothing is good on this flight. It was delayed by 7 hours and the communication is not proper"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "A free beverage and snack."
Pros: "Our trip to Knoxville was great- no complaints. A/c cool— flight on time."
Cons: "Trip back to FLL air was not working well. Plane dirty as well."
Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."
Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by hours, with no explanation given. It was coming from Florida, with no bad weather in between. It caused us to arrive at 1 am."
Pros: "Arrived on time after boarding was delayed. Great price/ you get what you pay for."
Cons: "No diaper changing station in any of the 3 bathrooms.flight attendants could have been friendlier"
Pros: "The pilot landed smooth."
Cons: "We were boarded and waiting on the stuffy hot plane with no air. The seats were so small and tight and then we had to get off the plane and take all of our belongings and waited another 3 hours to get back on the plane after they had told us something was wrong with the plane. It was a horrible experience. And we received nothing for the inconvenience when I had to cancel my work day so I had no compensation and lost clients because of cancelling last minute on them."
Pros: "People in my row."
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "After the delay, we were treated to complimentary soft drinks and snack mix. This was after sitting in the plane for over an hour, though."
Cons: "We spent two hours of the delay in the airport and then eventually boarded. However, another problem with the plane developed and we waited for at least an hour more in the incredibly cramped plane. The seats are bearable for a short flight, but they’re hard to endure with multiple delays. The boarding was also disorganized. There were two announcements: one for people who needed extra time to board and another for the final call. Nothing in between."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "I fly this airline airline quite a bit because I have family in the mountains of North Carolina. I have never had a problem with them, I fly out of Fort Lauderdale to Asheville, it's a quick one and a half hour flight. The flight crew is always professional and courteous."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Cons: "No compliment"
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Price, service"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"
Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."
Pros: "Very smooth ride and attentive friendly staff"
Cons: "Snacks were over charged."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."
Pros: "friendly crew clean plane, speedy service"
Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."
Cons: "The LA to Eugene leg was delayed in departing, but this was an improvement on the cancelled flight from Eugene to LA. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."
Pros: "The flight was fast, and direct."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "They opened the door when my friend was late"
Cons: "Nothing they are great"
Pros: "The crew was very kind. Plane loaded very quickly, every flight we've had on allegiant has left on time! Overall - very good experience!"
Cons: "Seats are TOO small!"
Pros: "No issues. Responsive flight attendants, on time"
Cons: "$5 to print my boarding pass at airport. and using online tools to print was not intuitive Seats that don't recline."
Cons: "The weather blizzard and freeways being closed. I missed my flight"
Pros: "I needed a one way flight last min and booked this flight the day before. Every other airline was over $300 and this one only cost me $127."
Cons: "This is an "a la carte" airline. Be prepared for hidden fees for choosing a seat, carry one bag, etc. Luckily I didn't need the ticket counter because the line was literally around the corner and out the door. they do not have any self serve kiosks at the ticket counter. Also, the plane was half empty but they didn't want us moving seats--I suppose because a lot of people had already paid an additional fee to pick their seat."

United makes Spirit look great

Entertainment sucked. Wi-fi bad. Horrible snacks. Just was happy to get off the plane.

Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you I needed to change 3 months ago due to an emergency at home."
Pros: "There was only one flight attendant but he was very friendly and worked very hard"
Cons: "The checkin process is awful if you fly basic economy. This is the second time I have flown basic economy on United and you have to wait in line for 20 minutes to get a boarding pass and then have someone inspect the size of your personal item. You cannot check in and get a boarding pass online."
Pros: "Found a replacement aircraft and worked hard to get bags from original scheduled aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment, no power outlet"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Long flight Very very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Pros: "Quick and efficient."
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "Pilot made up time"
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours delayed due to winds"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi entertainment was a complete joke. This was the first time that I used it but the speed of the connection was intolerable. I was only able to watch 22 minutes of a movie on a 2 hour flight due to buffering. Also, the gate agent never announced my boarding group. It was only because of the monitor that I knew I could board."
Cons: "All was great!"
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Pros: "???"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because of "weather" so no financial liability for keeping me in Chicago for an extra day - Flights going in and out like crazy!!! As far as I am concerned, United are big fat liars."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "so uncomfortable seating. united website wofirst offered us $200.00 each because flight was overbooked.we declined. united would not let us check in online due to having no bags. we had to go to airport desk who then sent us to kiosk. we used the kiosk and machine said we had to talk to an agent, who inturn had to see the see the size of our bags. (she was miserable). then she printed our a boarding pass without seat assignment. we then had to go to gate agent who told us we had to wait a couple of minutes. we returned to the gate agent who again said we had to wait .(she was miserable too!!) all the while, for 2 days, we thought of that poor man assaulted on the united flight as they forced him out of his seat and off the plane. was this going to happen to us??? we sat and watched many many crew members board, crew that did not work on the flight. finally we were given out boarding pass with a seat assignment . HATE UNITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Flight staff was fantastic!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Pros: "The pilot was friendly and made an effort to keep us informed"
Cons: "Same as the previous flight, but the space between the seats doesn't give room to climb over two people to go to the lavatory. Also, SLC said they would send the message ahead notifying Houston and JAX that I needed wheelchair assistance, but I had to request it and wait at each location ."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Pros: "It's was a straight threw flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on the way there and on the way back. I checked the flights to see if they where running on time they said they where. Then I'm told the flight was delayed first 15 min then an hour. The Flight back was even worse the flight was suppose to leave Saint Louis at 3:30 to Newark was delayed 2hours and 50 minutes I checked the flight status said it was going to be on time. If I had know it wasn't going to be on time My son wouldn't have had to wait at the air port as long as He did"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The seating space to compact. And too many delays on all my flights from Friday and Sunday."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "again the crew was great."
Cons: "nothing, it was a very smooth flight."
Pros: "Small seats flight did not depart in time due to ground crew check in counter wanted to give a wheel chair after I asked for assistance locating my terminal because I am legally blind"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight UA 6270 was initially delayed due to incoming plane delayed for weather. After boarding 2 planes at IAD, we were told after 5 + hrs that the flight to JAX was cancelled. UA Customer Service Agent was slow and not well trained. Other passengers were easily and promptly placed on other flights (UA & other airlines)...we were told that the next available UA flight from IAD to JAX was more than 24 hrs wait. Eventually placed on a UA Flt to CLT at 11 PM. Upon arrival in CLT, we asked the gate Agent for assistance on a Voucher because we had to stay overnight in CLT...we were told that the IAD Agent did not designate us as eligible for a voucher and yet, people next to us flying coach were given a voucher. The Gentleman Agent at our arrival gate was trying to help us but his Madam Supervisor was arrogant and unwilling to help. In an exasperated tone, I asked both individuals if flying First Class would help us get a voucher and her arrogant answer was "do you want me to call the police?" Obviously we left for our Marriott Hotel which was a wonderful customer service experience. Plus our UA Flt from IAD to CLT placed us in Coach (is a refund coming???) We paid for 1st Class for our 12/22 flight and our 12/26 flight. After 3 hrs in a Marriott in CLT we took an AA Flt from CLT to JAX. Also, the UA communication on the status of our baggage was unclear and misleading. Plan to fly American or Delta for future travel."
Pros: "A little late leaving the airport but it made us feel like they checked the plane well"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight it was a good flight. The crew was friendly and very polite. Broading went very well. We actually got there about 15 minutes early. I would definitely fly again with them"
Cons: "In all honesty there wasn't much I didn't like everything went good and easy so like I said there wasn't much I did not like about it"
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "The snack"
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight to Houston was delayed so long and nobody cared to notify me"
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight never left after waiting hours..cancelled flight in the middle of the night"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours with late warning didn't get home till after 1am where I could have stayed some more in jersey with my family spending those 2 extra hours instead of boring airport."
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Pros: "Never got on"
Cons: "Never had a chance to find out if I would like it or not."
Pros: "The flight itself was great and loved the inflight entertainment via the app."
Cons: "2 screaming and kicking little kids behind me the entire flight. Would be nice if the flight had something for kids to stay busy or protect their ears from the change in pressure that tends to make them cry and scream non stop."
