Pros: "Every thing"
Read more about Alaska Airlines
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Plenty of space since flight was empty."
Cons: "I have flown Alaska many many times and this was by far the worst service I ever received. The flight attendants were so very inattentive. I actually had to take my garbage, plastic cups and recyclables to the back where the flight attendant was sitting down, reading a magazine as she was eating her yogurt. I asked her if I could dispose of the items and she reluctantly answered without taking her eyes of the celebrity gossip magazine ... really??? Omg!! I couldn’t believe it!!"
Cons: "I love Alaska"
Pros: "Boarding was unsatisfactory. I and my family were the initial few people who boarded the flight. We were asked to check in the bag saying the bag was little big while many people who boarded after us had bigger bags. We had a carry on roller bag, small carryon bag and a back pack for the 5 people from the family and we were asked to check in the bag. While people who had 2 bags per person with the carry on roller bags bigger than ours was allowed to carry the bags inside."
Cons: "Boarding experience could have been better"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seat, IFE, leaving on time"
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were very kind and super attentive!"

Cons: "There were no tv monitors on the board of the plane."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient. First class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The airport terminal at KOA belongs in the stone age. It's not air conditioned. Its sound system is overwhelmed by ambient noise. We walk across the tarmac in the blazing sun and climb rickety ladders to board the plane. Hard wooden benches for seats while waiting. Too few schedules boards."
Cons: "Delay Part not available"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "They changed our seats from the original ones. We ended up in the last seats. No way to recline. Very noisy."
Cons: "We have been stuck on the plane for an hour and have not received any exact communication as to why. The flight attendants were also giving people a hard time about using the restroom when the plane was not even moving. Worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Left on time, boarded early"
Cons: "No snacks!"
Pros: "It was the most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. Plus most of the passengers were walking constantly up and down the aisle and stepping or bumping into me. I sat in the last row of the plane."

Pros: "more leg room in the main cabin than on other airlines"
Pros: "Your airline gave us drinks and NO snacks on a almost 5 hour flight. The food I had to purchase was horrible."

Pros: "Flying with Alaska Airlines was great. The flight was on time and the staff were super professional and courteous. One of the passengers was sick and the flight attendants handle the situation very well. I definitely recommend flying with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "The stewardess was exceptionally kind to two small boys - gave them co-pilot pins."
Cons: "It was a good flight."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I don't appreciate paying $200 to fly for 5 hours and not get more than a cookie to eat or a monitor for entertainment."
Pros: "I missed my flight because Alaska asked me a transit visa for Togo. I call the ambassador's office in Us they told me the don't require a transit visa."

Cons: "Nothing I did not like."

Cons: "5 hour flight and no comp meal served. Hot / stuffy / no air flow coming out of vents. Aircraft: 737 -900."

Cons: "They don't give you much to complain about, the planes are a little dated."
Cons: "USB port in the flight to charge my phone. But flight didn't have WIFI"
Pros: "The cheese platter was delicious and I like the gogo entertainment. Boarding was very quick, the crew was hepful and kind."
Pros: "The flight crew..."
Cons: "You lost my bag, and it still hasn't come, its a big hassle. Customer service for paying customers is more important than transporting fish. Then entire plane saw the boxes of fish getting loaded on the plane, and half the customers had their bags delayed. Priorities please."
Pros: "I liked the drink service and the general boarding process and flight."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not notified that I was in a section where my seat could not lean back during a cross country flight. I also did not like that the only snacks were super sugary cookies. I would have preferred pretzels."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "People were nice and made good time on the trip"
Cons: "Wifi was terrible, could not even do basic email work on both my flights to and from Portland. Waste of money and very disappointing. Did not have this issue with Jetblue on my last trip. -sm"
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."

Pros: "Delayed BC of Pilots schedule, boarded the knowing the pilots weren't even there yet waited 30 mins for pilots with no air-conditioning til the stewards called someone to turn on air... finally checking the plane and during that found there was something wrong with waited an extra 45 mins til we finally took out ...were supposed to arrive in Newark at 5:55 pm did land til 7:15pm that messed up my pick and the schedule"
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: "Very nice flight and helpful agents"
Cons: "Free drinks? No they didnt have them but that would've been nice"
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats for such a long flight were so close together and uncomfortable. The flight attendant skipped us twice with beverage services"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Hawaiian has great crew."
Cons: "I thought I had upgraded to premium economy, but when I checked in, there was no seat assigned. I have to go back and check my records. No option for gluten free."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good seat assignment"
Cons: "Movies in a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "When I got there"
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 2 hours and they had to wait for another plane. I’m sure the original plane could have made it even if it wasn’t running great. It was only a 40 minute flight. And planes have 2 motors."
Pros: "The crew! And the meals provided."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "The use of an ipad along with the special built in stand for entertainment was innovative and effective. I found the food to be delicious."
Cons: "Though the seats were nice, they were not as nice as some of the other first or business class international flights I have taken."
Pros: "In flight crew was good and emergency exit row seat was very roomy. Ticket counter agent was able to fix the computer errors on my reservation."
Cons: "Constant issues with reserving and paying for premium seats and the system releasing them. Each incident took almost one hour of phone conversation or 30 to 40 minutes of waiting at the check in counter to resolve."
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "Limited outlets for a 9 hr flight. Have to pay for a movie"
Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Short flight so no food"
Pros: "Overall one of the best fights I’ve been on in a while."
Cons: "My tray was broken which made my drink spill all over my lap, glad it was only water. My friends screen didn’t work the entire flight even after the flight attendants tried re-booting the system, no luck with fixing it."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly and patient. It was my first time flying Hawaiian and I would definitely fly again. Our flight was delayed at the start, but the crew handled the stress seamlessly! Great guest service."
Pros: "The ride was smooth and schedule Is on time."
Pros: "Guava juice"
Cons: "There was no entertainment or food. We did get some guava juice, but the flight was so short it did not matter, I feel I am not applicable for those ratings."
Pros: "A kind Hawaiian, noting my obvious age and lack of mobility, obtained a wheelchair and porter for me, who took me to the head of a very long TSA line, and took me to my gate. Later he returned and pushed me up the boarding ramp, and onto the plane. So much appreciated!"
Cons: "No drinks served."
Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew friendly, and all the usual. The little prop plane was nimble and with the short hop over scenic islands, it felt almost like a paid tour."
Cons: "The $200 change fee for a different flight was pretty harsh. It's not really the airline's fault, but the TSA screening really makes it feel like we aren't free."
Pros: "Complimentary sandwich was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Despite being a 5 hr long flight, there were no individual entertainment screens for seats. Plane was old."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air has a direct flight from Honolulu which makes the 5000 trip bearable. The Hawaiian crew is really good-natured and warm, always w/a smile, even in the middle of the night. In these days of budget cuts, Hawaiian serves you too much food and even offers a complementary glass of wine. The only unfortunate thing is that you have to pay for all types of on board entertainment. All in all it’s a really great flight in economy."
Pros: "Very nice staff, very decent food (a little bit small, but tasty), good entertainment options, comfortable and quiet cabin"
Cons: "Was reassigned aisle seats with no explanation for both legs of my journey despite paying for window seats."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, quick beverage service"
Cons: "It is not nice to sell a window seat that actually doesn't have a window (row 27)"
Cons: "out of food choices and the fish they had available was not interesting to me"
Pros: "Hawaiian Chocolate (Only 1 piece though)"
Cons: "Entire food service is just a joke. I think they should tell the passengers straightforwardly that there is going to be no food served on this flight."
Pros: "Nothing- they really do suck."
Cons: "There crew sucks"
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful even though one of them got to the airplane 20 minutes late, however we arrived on time, surprisingly..."
Cons: "Nothing really other than having to wait for a crewmember to arrive."
Pros: "No food or entertainment options available, but you do get a beverage of juice or water. The flight is very quick (under 1 hour) so it's nothing fancy."
Pros: "Friendly. On time. Small meals on long flight."
Cons: "You shouldn't have to pay to watch a movie"
Pros: "We were Platinum so we could use the Premier Club room."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "I bought these tickets about two months ago. There was no option for seat selection. Despite the fact I bought two tickets when we finally got our boarding passes we were twelve rows apart. I tried to call Jet Blue (the actual airline) and they said they couldn't do anything over the phone. I went up to the gate and they said sorry, it was a full flight. When the cabin door closed, the seat next to me was empty, but we were taking off so I couldn't at that time move my wife. When they reached cruising altitude and they turned off the fasten seatbelts sign, I went back to where my was sitting but she was asleep."
Pros: "Friendly staff and personnel. The ride was smooth and good. I will definitely book Hawaiian airline in my next travel to Hawaii ..."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "everything was fine but flight on Thursday from Kona to Maui"

Pros: "options for vegetarians"
Cons: "the food, there was no vegetarian option. The first plane was very small and uncomfortable but the return was good."
Cons: "My flight got delayed and I got stuck waiting for two and a half hours. Then my luggage didn't follow me and I had to drive an hour out of my way to pick it up from a different airport. Not a happy customer"
Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"
Pros: "I needed to get to Oakland for the business deal of my life. A head-on crash on the hwy haunted all traffic and prevented me from making the first flight. The agent at the porter desk, stepped up and really helped out. AWESOME wish I knew her name.. she got me on another flight and I made it in that night. HOWEVER... the next flight... no so much."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was pretty good. Hit some turbulence and it was handled smoothly as possible."
Cons: "Touchscreen display barely responded to touch, would randomly turn on while I was trying to sleep."
Cons: "Cancelled our flight, after that we didn't get our luggages ☹️ That's why we didn't take part of our trip to Polynesian Cultural Center, the flight was delayed 9 hours"
Pros: "A passenger in the row next to mine needed medical care, and the crew administered to her needs without disrupting the comfort of the rest of us."
Pros: "Check-in counter was really helpful."
Cons: "They charge you everything they can. Want to check in your bag? $25 for the 1st bag. You got married and want to change your name on the ticket? $35. Want another juice on your flight, they'll think about it and not come back."
Cons: "Paid 1500 for a flight from California to Kona, and Hawaiian airlines wouldn't give me a seat assignment until I arrived at gate. Very stressful and spent hours getting run around in the phone for months beforehand. Bought ticket 6 months early. Will not fly with this airline again"
Pros: "They actually had a complimentary meal"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was a long line to TSI check in. We almost miss our flight."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was very nice. The seats/blanket/pillows were comfortable."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work for the entire flight and they were not able to fix it or place me in a different seat. This was not good."

Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."

Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "It was lovely. It was my flight from nyc to dc that was terrible."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"

Cons: "the worst thing that I've traveled in my life I do not travel again by delta 3 hours without food and without taking or water we were not given that service is the worst its employees are a disaster"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "The people were all really nice and helpful and fun. Food was great. Watched a fun movie."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit unpleasant when we had to stand in a crowd before the shuttle came."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Cons: "N!A"

Cons: "Did not like being assigned a seat next to the bathroom and having an aisle full of people waiting to get in."
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "Great movies...."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Cons: "Basic economy has way too many restrictions"
Pros: "Loved the customer service & movie options"
Cons: "The flight only had snacks for free; wish sandwiches would be given for lunch"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Plane was late getting in so boarding was an hour late"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was maintenance happening on the plane after everyone boarded. It was a long wait on the plane and it could have been better if that was done before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"
Pros: "On time, good boarding process."
Pros: "Nothing I was traveling with my to kids and I ask if they can please provide me the setting for us together and they told us they can’t do it. I end up doing it by my self this is not good and didn’t get the help I need"
Cons: "Overall I didn’t like this flight at all"
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant closed all the overhead bin doors...even though there was room in them and she INDICATED as much...so why did she close them DURING the ongoing boarding process. Very strange and very dumb!"
Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre."
Cons: "The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight TO Charlotte was cancelled on Wednesday morning and AA couldn’t find me a flight to CLT on Wednesday so I had to spend 22 hours in the car driving to NC and back. I huge pain!!!"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."
Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."
Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to be given a boxed Snack on our overnight flight from Kona to Dallas."
Cons: "The ride was a little bumpy but not too bad. Can’t think of much we didn’t like."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "Crew very quick and efficient in service"
Cons: "Over crowding, boarding is a jungle,"
Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour. The plane was uncomfortably hot while we taxied. They could have waited to board the flight or served drinks while we waited."

Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Ecerything from the boarding to the seating assignment"
Cons: "Just have to be organize as they do the boarding process"
Pros: "One of the smoothest flights and landings ever."
Cons: "Each seat doesn't have its own screen. Plane feels older than JetBlue by a lot. First checked bag is not free like JetBlue. WiFi is another additional charge. Overall cost was significantly higher than JetBlue for less value."
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "I made it safe to the mainland"
Cons: "We had some Change of plans and we're going to just get off in Phoenix and not take it straight to San Diego, we called American they said no big deal they would ticket our bags to Phoenix, got to the airport and the American Airlines gal stated in no way shape or form could they do that, I tried explaining the whole situation and her response always ended in 'and your bags will be in San Diego'. By the grace of God we were able to cram two checked bags worth of stuff into our carry ons which I still do not know how we did that, and were fine. On the flight we had a decently nice lady and a horrible male. When passing out drinks he seemed almost irritated that we had asked for water and rudely gave it to us which was room temperature. He totally skipped the lady in the row with us and got irritated when she asked for a water as well."

Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "emtertinment screens in the front Row couldn’t turn Iran’s it was a midnight flight."
Cons: "Flight 1039 dec 16 was delayed due to late inbound arrival to Aruba. United gave the reason "delayed Maintenance" which United denied as mechanical failure. We missed connected flight to Albany. United gave us only option: morning flight to Washington and then To Albany which is inacceptable option. We took rental car. Also: Workers at Newark do not coordinate. Super Slow and give disinformation."

Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Pros: "That it was over"
Cons: "Dallas to Newark worst flight I ever had crew was rude they did not control the guest well they pretty much let them do whatever they wanted not safe."
Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."
Pros: "I would like to have movies shown during long flights."
Cons: "I do not like satellite TV option. No one seemed to even use it. The internet and the TV are only availlible for certain periods during the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was great and loved being able to board first with my baby without paying extra."
Cons: "The five hour delay was insane and unorganized."
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "Everything !"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Lounge in Santo Domingo was very nice. Fair price for ticket."
Cons: "Upgraded to business class for flight home. I had aisle seat last row. Cart left in aisle to keep cabin class from constantly using the bathroom by the cockpit. But they kept coming just pushing the cart aside and rubbing their butts on my arms and shoulders to squeeze by. I understand why they did it. Many times their was a long line and people bothering the guests in business class. I eventually complained and the cart was removed. The attendants really tried hard to minimize the traffic through that section. But to little success."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."

Pros: "Everything about my whole trip was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Pros: "Flight was nearly three hours late taking off"
Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."
Cons: "United's inefficient practices resulted in a missed connection for which they did nothing to compensate me."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Pros: "Great flight. Pilot flew away from hurricane."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that not only was my flight cancelled but so was its replacement with no explanation."
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. I liked the wifi option to watch movies"
Cons: "Didn't like that I paid to upgrade my seat for more legroom but another person saw the empty seat next to me moved into it without paying and crew did nothing about it. Also paid $50 extra for priority boarding and security but was informed by the airport staff in Aruba that it didn't apply for that airport. Seats are a little tight"
Pros: "I was happy to have leg room on this flight. My first one was way too cramp"
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "1)Arrived early from Savannah (9pm) 2)Waited 3+ hours for a delayed aircraft to arrive 3)Told after midnight that the flight was canceled 4)Only ONE agent working the desk to handle all of the displaced passengers. (Three agents arrived about 15 min later) 5)Would have appreciated earlier notification if the flight crew could not/would not fly when they arrived at Dulles. I had to be to work in NJ at 8am. I was forced to sleep for only 2 hours before getting up to rent a car to drive to NJ in order to make it to my appointment. Now I need to chase United around to get a refund--UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1"
