Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew noticeably friendly and interactive."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Didn’t like sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes after arriving. Got very warm and uncomfortable to breathe"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and very pleasant"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "All the ladies (and the pilot) who helped us were so lovely and helpful! Thanks for such a wonderful experience ❤"

Pros: "The flight attendants were really great and nice."
Cons: "That I’m still stuck on this damn plane and we landed 30 minutes ago."

Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."

Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."

Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."

Pros: "Early arrival and smooth landing."
Cons: "No more complimentary glass of wine or beer. Early arrival and unfortunately couldn’t get to a gate. Baggage claim carousel was broken and had to be moved to another. Meanwhile my friend was being hassled by security for waiting for me."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "I upgraded seats for $99. Compared to Hawaiian Airlines upgrade for $80 return trip from Honolulu to Oakland, Alaskan was disappointing. One older stewardess with long blk/grey hair and glasses was rude. I asked her a question and she told me to sit down. I was waiting to use the restroom. Must have been a bad day for her. We were fed on Hawaiian which was a treat."

Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was great. Nice app onboard for watching movies...free!"

Pros: "I liked that they have Danny devito has a mascot"

Pros: "great flight and crew. efficient. plenty of leg room."

Pros: "Better than United and no stopover in SFO."

Pros: "First flight (out of 5) they didn't run out of hot meals before they got to me."

Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was great and even though we were delayed in leaving Seattle we got in on time."
Cons: "Couldn't get the wifi to work dispite trying several times. I had even uploaded the gogo app previous to leaving Seattle. Seats were uncomfortable too, very little cushion left on them."

Pros: "There was more leg room than usual which was very nice. Free mimosa was fun."
Cons: "Service cart was in the aisle too much. Passengers couldn't get to the bathroom"

Pros: "flight attendants came in spaced out time to give water"
Cons: "very hot on the plane no buttons to get flight attendants attention very long wait for only one bathroom"

Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "Maybe a little racist? I could be taking it wrong but every asian person boarding was glared at?"

Cons: "A long line for the aft toilets, and crew told us we couldn't use the empty toilet at the front because first class passengers pay more. This was TWO attendants making people wait when at least one other toilet was open up front on a five hour flight. Is this even legal? Very disappointed in lack of consideration for health and comfort. Thanks for listening."

Pros: "boarding and disembark were good for premier as was seating comfort"
Cons: "There is no substitute for a wide body aircraft"

Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and personable. Food was excellent."

Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants"

Pros: "Convenient. On time. Polite service. Easy to book."
Cons: "No meal service is fine. But serving meals a la carte for extra money and other add on services for additional charges is similar to Ryanair. And Ryanair is much much cheaper fares."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of legroom in coach"
Cons: "No airplane at the gate. One had to be towed from the hangar, and it put us an hour behind leaving Seattle and arriving in Honolulu. I'm surprised that there was a lack of knowledge about where the plane was. It seems people should have been a little more on their toes about if a plane should have been at the gate, and why it wasn't there."

Pros: "Courteous crew, short flight, free drink, space still available in overhead compartment for my item, although boarded last"
Cons: "Other passenger seated in my seat had to move when I boarded, leak of water between inner& outer window panes Loose fixed wing bottom airflow closest to fuselage wiggled on takeoff& landing"

Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."

Pros: "We were treated with respect and kindness throughout the flight. There were 5 of us traveling together, two being 7 year olds, and they enjoyed watching movies and playing games to pass the time."

Pros: "Charging station in the seat"

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."

Cons: "No delays and more room"

Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"

Pros: "That it got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew, the food, the tv capability, the amenities. Overall it was the worst international flight I have ever been on. They confiscated my unopened beer I purchased after security point. They had me assigned to a wrong seat, so I had to fight my way 20 rows up as people are filing into their seats. The hot towel to clean your hands was dry and cold. The roll was hard as a rock and cold. The crew was rude and unapproachable. It took almost 3 hours to get them to reset my tv and when she finally did it glitched the whole time I tried watching it. The croissant was literally cooked to the paper and had to rip apart Croissant to get the paper off. They didn't serve the cocktail as promised. It was a pretty poor performance on all levels, and if this survey truly means anything, I hope this gets remedied."

Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"

Cons: "90 minute delay"

Pros: "You know what you are getting with Delta"
Cons: "The economy seats were really tiny, this made the flight fairly uncomfortable"

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The fact that we left on time given the thunderstorms in the area, and landed on time in Atlanta was amazing. Congratulations to the crew!"
Cons: "Not surprised there was no WiFi, but it would have been nice as more aircraft of all sizes are now equipped with WiFi."

Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."

Pros: "Television"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"

Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Napkins stuffed in the overhead to fix presumably the rattles."

Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"

Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"

Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."

Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."

Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."

Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."

Cons: "Irregular serbice"

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."

Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"

Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Landed early!"

Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."

Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."

Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."

Pros: "Quick flight time even though we left late."
Cons: "Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats."

Cons: "Social distancing"

Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Pros: "The same answers apply as did the flight from Richmond to Miami."
Cons: "Same answers apply as the flight from Richmond to Miami."

Pros: "M"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"

Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Pros: "My seat location and comfort was good"
Cons: "The flight attendant preformed her duties as if it was a chore and she was too good for this job or she has been doing it so long that she dislikes providing service."

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "Nice quick, timely flight."
Cons: "BARELY made the flight..delays leading to it. Ridiculous waiting on the Tarmac."

Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"

Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"

Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"

Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment selection was excellent; great movie selection, wifi connection, and flight details. A winner! So much so that I chose to binge watch movies and not sleep!!"

Pros: "Airline crew was good. Attendant was appreciative for my daughter translating for her. There were two passengers who did not speak English. One spoke french and the other Spanish. The food provided was tasty."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, not enough leg room, too small ( I am a smaller person.). Did not like that could not reserve seats in advance without paying $50. Spent almost an hour with agent to get two bags checked for free. Iberia flight operated by American allowed two free bags. Agent took awhile to discover this was correct then she got locked out system. There was no regard that we had a flight to catch. No individual TV's."

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"

Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."

Cons: "."

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The 10:50 PM flight was delayed beyond midnight with no prior indication. The reason given was the flight from Dallas delayed due to weather. This looks childish. Why not pay for inconvenience. Is our time and hardship so invaluable?"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."

Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"

Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."

Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."

Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"

Cons: "Stewardess was mean when I asked for a mask"

Pros: "I really love Hawaii it was beautiful."
Cons: "It was perfect"

Cons: "There was no lunch"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"

Cons: "Service could be better. Bathrooms need to be clean periodically. Your cut back of restrooms - sucks. I guess the offer of free drinks and a small snack is all United can offer for the price we pay."

Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."

Cons: "Very turbulent day."

Pros: "Everything was very nice."

Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"

Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"

Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."

Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."

Cons: "No screens in seat back; WiFi not working"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"

Pros: "I like the food and the movies you could watch on your phone. The United app."
Cons: "Don't have a negative feedback."

Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."

Pros: "Cell phone holder and power outlets that actually work"
Cons: "Basic economy pricing"

Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bathroom smelled terrible after multiple passengers made a BM! Should be cleaned and deodorant spray should be available. Had to use some body spray and cologne to neutralize the smell."

Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"

Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"

Pros: "They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency."
Cons: "Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier."

Pros: "All the crews are very friendly,service was great!"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Ay a connecting gate too far away!"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""

Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."

Cons: "Didn't really like the food plane that was offered, seating are so uncomfortable, had a child crying the whole way, wifi didn't work, there was a magazine in my sitting area with ink where I got ink on me, board was late"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."

Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"

Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"

Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."

Pros: "It was not overbooked and had plenty of space"
Cons: "Wifi and food prices were a little too expensive"

Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."

Pros: "Delayed 3hrs due to awaiting the aircraft. Was given the option to change flights with no more flights to HNL tonight"

Pros: "We flew in comfort the entire trip! Plenty to drink and eat. Too much actually. The business class cabin was clean, seats ample and comfortable. It definitely made the 6-7 hours of flying more bearable."
Cons: "Poor wifi service."
