Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."
Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"
Pros: "Flight staff very attentive and friendly - I love flying Alaska!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight delayed by two and half hours. And then luggage delivered after 25 minutes of landing."
Cons: "Only 1 flight attendant in first class for 16 passengers, as the other one disappeared most of the time, and when asked for help she actually refused, saying she was only helping coach class! Dinner service took almost 3 hours. Never asked if we wanted wine or another drink with dinner."
Pros: "The pilot was excellent Softest landing ever We hovered down from the sky"
Cons: "The chicken teriyaki was awful Vegitables crunchy Should have small packet of soy sauce"
Cons: "I paid for my ticket full price through kayak but my ticket was apparently what the industry calls a non-revenue ticket meaning I was on the standby list and had to Hope people didn't come. I ended up getting the last seat on the plane and was in serious Jeopardy being left behind"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Pros: "Finally, a plane designed with some comfort in mind! It was easy to move and find a comfortable way to sleep."
Cons: "No pillows to purchase!"
Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The airline changed flights and somehow lost my original seats, staying on the flight cost additional money beyond the original price so that we could sit together as a family. Every time I fly I have another reason to tell friends and family not to fly."
Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on-time, onboard service was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."
Cons: "terrible flight, very unfriendly flight attendants."
Pros: "I generally prefer to fly with Alaska Airlines. Reasonable fares, good service, good flight itineraries from PDX. My mobile carrier provides complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi. I'm no Starbucks fan but grudgingly admit to enjoying the coffee service."
Cons: "It would be good to see fewer disposals used in the food service but the cabin crew must be given kudos for separating recyclables as they collect waste from passengers."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional; boarding was rushed; cabin was clean, but seating was very cramped; entertainment was v good (and currently free) using own tablet, phone, or smart phone."
Pros: "The flight offered was a direct flight. They offer preboarding for families with children under 2."
Cons: "The seats on this flight are so close together your shoulders literally touch your neighbors shoulders while sitting normally in your seat. This is unacceptable. When will airlines finally get it? People deserve to sit in their own seat without being on top of their neighbor."
Pros: "It was my first time flying with Alaska. I was pleasantly surprised with the boarding times, organization, super-friendly crew, free entertainment (a few select movies with complimentary tablets to view them on), and outlets for charging mobile devices in every seat. Easily the best flight I've had in a couple years. I will fly with Aaska again."
Cons: "I felt like the aisle was unusually small ( I was sitting in an aisle seat and was occasionally bumped by people walking by me. Then again, I was in a deep sleep most of the time and could have easily been leaning into the aisle....I'm not really sure. Overall though, best flight I've had in a while. They really do a great job."
Pros: "POG was available from the beverage cart. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "We were assigned two middle seats in different rows for a five hour flight! Flight attendants were rude. The bathrooms were a mess. Complimentary food for a five hour flight is a bag with nine, dime-sized pretzels."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Everything was just fine."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and helpful. The flight left late but arrived at the destination early. I have flown Alaska for years and other than the food I have no complaints."
Cons: "The food choices are Chicken or Cheese and fruit. On a 6 hour flight the only free food is a very small package of pretzels. For people who do not eat chicken there is very limited food."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"
Pros: "Fast flight. Friendly crew. Switched me to a sooner flight so I wouldn't have to drive home real late."
Cons: "Wasn't too much to dislike. Was a very good flight."
Pros: "Short and direct flight from kona to anchorage, love it"
Cons: "Internet was down at the airport, caused delays, but all good , I have always hsd pretty good experience with alaska air"
Pros: "They had a limited selection of free WiFi TV programs you could watch and charging ports on the seats."
Cons: "The only snack option was pretzels, take off was delayed on both departure and the connecting flights. The seats were OK for comfort, but the plane was HOT while sitting on the tarmac during boarding and waiting and waiting to take off."
Pros: "We were lucky and had a seat open between us. Comfortable, and crew were great."
Pros: "I missed all my appointments"
Cons: "I have to pay $200 for a ride . I'm very hungry and very tired."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."
Pros: "To be able to upgrade, charging stations at my seat, generous beverages"
Cons: "No free baggage, unclear coomunication about check in and choosing seats, was not offered my free drink."
Cons: "pretty cold and no blankets in economy"
Pros: "It was decent"
Pros: "crew did there best to help with passenger on board that needed medical attention they handled the situation luckily a passenger was a nurse and was able to help them"
Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"
Pros: "I liked how there was a bigger selection of free entertainment on the flight through the wifi stream. Some airlines don't have any free entertainment. Also the staff was helpful with bag check in."
Cons: "There were a couple of children who were crying and screaming almost the whole time, but that isn't the airlines fault and I realize that. Other than that, the flight was good."
Pros: "Friendly staff and very helpful at getting our boarding passes and luggage checked."
Cons: "The need to clean their planes before letting passengers board. Food stuck on trays and spilled drink and food on seat. Don't bother using your own device (ie. ipad). There really isn't much to see without paying for it. No internet on this flight."
Pros: "They were on time. We went economy. We got what we paid for. Brought our own lunch. I would recommend it. Flight attendants were good. No surprises!"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "I know it was a night flight but the food choice Was very limited."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Needs more amenities, free in flight movies perhaps, a better smack"
Pros: "The time and effort the Kona ground crew spent looking for and finding my drivers license that I had lost on the plane, without it I could not have rented a vehicle in Kona. Exceeded my wife and I's expectations. Very enjoyable experience."
Cons: "We arrived at the Kona airport more than an hour before departure and the Alaska agent seemed irritated that we didn't arrive earlier. Admittedly most of the flight's passengers had already been checked in and were already in the boarding area."
Cons: "Need free movies"
Pros: "flight was on time, good crew, good flight overall"
Cons: "it was a red eye flight so i expected to be offered a blanket or pillow. there were none of either so i was cold and had a hard time trying to sleep."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great , so kind and helped us pick out snacks/drinks."
Cons: "How rude the people were around us. I felt really bad for the flight attendants and clean up crew :( . no one on that flight seemed to listen to the illuminated signs except for flight attendants and my row ."
Pros: "I loved the humor of the hostess. I was originally booked on a later flight but the kind and helpful staff got me a earlier flight that got me home much sooner"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "Lack of service from flight attendance"
Cons: "That I am trapped in Seattle because an active volcano exploded, and now my very limited funds are being sucked away because the airline won't pay for hotel fees because " active volcano" doesn't fall under things they will pay for. I am stuck in Seattle with a service dog who I might not be able to purchase more dog food for because of hotel fees, I probably won't be able to pay for rent at home, and my flight has been changed THREE TIMES IN ONE DAY. I was supposed to leave yesterday, then I was supposed to leave 3 hours from now, and now I don't leave for another 24 hours, and will have to pay ANOTHER DAYS WORTH of hotel fees. Thank you for sending me to the poorhouse, and possibly getting me evicted from my apartment, Alaska Airlines. My service dog and I get to spend 8 hours in an airport tomorrow morning, because checkout is at 1 PM. UNLESS THE FLIGHT CHANGES AGAIN AND I HAVE TO PAY FOR ANOTHER NIGHT."
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Took extreme measures for COVID prevention. It felt very safe"
Cons: "Four hour delay, rude gate agent, seat in front of me was broken making my already small space smaller, the plane smelled."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Pros: "The check in process was smooth and the flight crew were pleasant"
Cons: "some of the TSA crew were rude/seemed to be doing a lazy job with helping load items on the belt"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "It was too cold on the feet during the night. The blanket was not enough. The food lacked good vegetables. The asparagus was too tough. If you wanted to avoid sugar, you could not eat breakfast."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "Rude stewardesses; I was traveling with 3 children onanovernight flight. I just wanted the simplest things- blankets and headphones for them. I cannot believe that an overnight flight wouldn’t be stocked with pillows and blankets. We froze al the way across the Pacific."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "In flight Wi-Fi and entertainment is nice and helps pass the time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and contributed to a delayed take off to ATL. Flight arrived late and caused a missed connecting flight."
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"
Pros: "Convince of the online apps and the TSA precheck"
Cons: "The aircraft was noisy, and the seats were very uncomfortable and extremely close together.."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movie, all else was good"
Cons: "Did nt get to finish the movie, arrived at destination early. Thank you Delta, great trip."
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Pros: "Free ear phones"
Cons: "Late boarding Late take off Maintenance after boarding Two hours before refreshments Boring movie Bumpy flight Very hard landing Home an hour late"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Cons: "Delay on return flight"
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Cons: "There was a loud ringing sound at boarding & it continued through the flight. Very annoying. Hurtful to my ears."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"

Cons: "Trying to board was a mess. It was disorganised and inefficient."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good price. Upgraded to comfort seating without charge since I'm a Delta sky priority flier"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "The service with a smile. They brought water and snacks while we were waiting for our luggage, that was very thoughtful."
Cons: "The screens weren´t working, so there was no entertainment for the 3 hours long flight."
Pros: "The customer service of the middle aged White frmale FA"
Cons: "The seats were small"
Pros: "I like the promptness of the service Delta offers. The planes typically are not delayed due to mechanical difficulties."
Cons: "I have MS so I always select an aisle seat because I can't sit still and if I try I end up with a lot of pain. They want us by our seats during the flight. I selected our seating at the time of purchase, checked 24 hours in advance & checked at the front desk before going to our terminal and we still had the seats I selected at all those points. I heard names being called while we waited for our plane, but ours was never called. It wasn't till we boarded that bells started going off & our seating was changed. I spent 8 1/2 hours in pain!"
Cons: "There were too many people on the flight. The middle seat was occupied."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."
Pros: "Clean. Rough landing- felt like slamming on the breaks too hard"
Pros: "The early boarding and charging ports accesbility?"
Cons: "Just one snack option maybe a few more comps. Also it didn’t have any info on the new airplane. The ride was nice."
Cons: "Tiny seats..."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. A nice, calm trip."
Cons: "It would have been nice if members of my group could have flown together instead of being scattered around the airplane."
Cons: "I know this flight was considered local so they get away with no serving food but Phoenix to Honolulu is 7 hours long. they need to consider that other passengers took that flight as connection to a previous flight mine was Charlotte to Phoenix 4:45 duration"
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Cons: "Seemed disorganized getting on"
Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."
Cons: "Very bad operation at the gate i was ticketed with a new ticket because the flight was late and others and i miss a connection the agent who was at the end of her shift gave me a ticket in error i was pulled off the plane and not permited to fly until the next day"
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
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: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."
Pros: "We arrived to LAX at the same scheduled time and the pilots were very informative when we might have turbulence."
Cons: "Head phone jack was broken, was told by one attendant that they would fix it. He never came back, told someone else and they said sorry, there was an open seat 6 rows back. Was not going to have my son sitting by himself. Knowing that you have to check many things prior to the flight, maybe have a back up plan for something like this."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the plane was sparkling clean"
Pros: "friendly crew, good leg room, on time dperature and arrival. entertainment"
Cons: "one of the food items (beef sandwich) has alcohol in it but I was't told so I ordered from my child then discovered it after reading the label."
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The gate attendant did not wish me a good flight by name even though she wishes other passengers a good flight by name. I was disappointed with being singled out like that."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "Having flown many international airlines, I was proud to give American the highest ratings for quality and general hospital."
Cons: "More up to date movies would help"
Pros: "Crew not very interested in passengers. Lot of sitting and reading magazines or socializing with each other"
Pros: "Flight on time ."
Pros: "There was surprisingly a great amount of legroom"
Pros: "AA canceled our flight on 9/13 and rescheduled us to 9/15 for no apparent reason. There were flights leaving Orlando. When I called to ask why since all I received was a text message the customer service rep was rude. Then I received another text message on 9/13 at 4:30 am saying my flight was canceled and we were rebooked again!!! After calling again I was told if I want to leave on Friday we would have to leave from another airport that was over an hour away which means $225 in transportation to get us there! This is on top of the 2 additional hotel nights we paid for and additional meals. When I asked if we would be compensated for all the additional expenses we were incurring I was told it's weather related so probably not. I informed the rep that flights have been leaving Orlando since Tuesday 9/12 so that cannot be the case. She said to try to contact them online. UNACCEPTABLE. I will not fly AA again and I will not recommend them to family or friends. If I could give zero stars I would but the survey defaults to one star."
Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination alive."
Cons: "It was my first time taking Virgin America and I didn't know movies weren't free. I used to travel a lot and I've never had to pay for movies. I ended up watching 12 episodes of Big Bang Theory because it was the only free thing to watch that wasn't LinkedIn videos or Disney, which really sucked. Comfort level wasn't any better than any of the other airlines and service was the same as well. I've heard good things about Virgin but my experience was just mediocre."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."
Pros: "smooth disembarking"
Cons: "30 mins delay"
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Pros: "That I got home safely"
Cons: "From the get go it was an awful experience ... I travel with an emotional support animal as does my husband because we don't do well with flying. I have anxiety to the max about it & my husband gets ulcerative colitis flare ups any time he's stressed out which is usually while we fly and having our dogs with us turkey makes us feel better. When I called to tell them over the phone we would have our emotional support animal I got an attitude as if I hadn't been doing this for the last 4 years. She reiterated to me that we needed in addition to the letterhead from the doctor a form filled out (which we both did ) . Brought to the airport and sit had to sit at the counter like the girl didn't know what she was doing. Fast forward to finally getting to the gate after being stressed and our flight was delayed. This now only made our 50 min layover in DC 20 min by the time we landed. We ran from one gate to the next hoping we wouldn't miss our flight and when we got there they wouldn't let us on the plane saying things like "your dogs are not on this flight" "there is no documentation" "well then you must not have the right paperwork" ... in front of a bunch of people in line, out of breath, and now embarrassed I am forced to take out my folder and give them all the paperwork I had just given to the customer service desk before our first flight. They let everyone on the plane and still made us stand there and finally said "just go but your dogs aren't on this flight". Fast forward AGAIN to sitting on the flight the flight attendant comes over and says "guys where's you carrier the dogs need to be under the seats" .. we peoceeded again to explain for the seventh time that they were emotional support animals ... she then proceeded "no they are not they are not even listed on this flight" at this point I'm EXTREMLY embarrassed because people on the plane are paying attention and drawing attention to us but not only that ... I have been doing this for years .. I ALWAYS have the proper documentation as does my husband and we have never ran into this kind of disappointment and embarrassment from any airline until now. I was so stressed out to begin with and this deffinately didn't help ... nor did it make us wants to fly on American again. I felt pushed aside, embarrassed, and belittled by multiples employees ... all because the first employee clearly made a mistake and didn't document things correctly ... that should have never been put on us ."

Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Pros: "The Crew was really kind!"

Cons: "More time in Chicago in case of a delay I only missed my flight by 5 minutes"
Pros: "efficient and communicative"
Cons: "Not necessarily United's problem, but I feel like the design of the seating could be more efficient. The 3 or 4 in a row seats can be super problematic if you have to use the bathroom and need to climb over a stranger to do it and they're asleep/3 times your size. Holding for 5 hours is not fun."
Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Free snacks and tv and charging sockets"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly.. a little delayed but that's ok..."
Cons: "These days, to get these kinds of "First class" doesn't seem so first class for the price. Lower the price or up your first class game..."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "We paid for extra leg room but did not receive it. Our complaint to the staff was dismissed without a care. We will be taking our business to Alaska Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."

Cons: "Late start"
Cons: "The plane had mechanical issues. they flew the plane that had mechanical issues to a Honolulu. spent eight hours in a Honolulu. had to catch a redeye to San Francisco. 12 hour layover caused us to have to pay for a rental car to get to our final destination Of Reno. I would hope that there would be some sort of compensation."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."

Cons: "As usual with all flights, tight seating"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"

With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault).

Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
