Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Oh...where to begin?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and food for purchase was reasonably priced."

Cons: "Wish it was a longer flight."
Cons: "45 minute delayed departure due to maintenance documentation issue"
Pros: "Crew was great and understanding with a screaming baby"
Cons: "On time departure also Kona airport is an open airport with no place to hide from the heat. 90 degrees and humid. Nothing like being sweaty and gross felling then being packed in a plane.

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."

Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight delayed by two and half hours. And then luggage delivered after 25 minutes of landing."

Cons: "No pillows to purchase!"
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: "Flight was smooth and on-time, onboard service was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "Nothing...the seats were to small"
Cons: "I am a retired Veteran and they made me pay for luggage--versus Active Duty which got free luggage...ridiculous"
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: "Everything was just fine."
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: "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: "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: "I purchased an Am Airlines ticket operated by Alaska Airlines. This created some issues in check-in, etc/ process. I was given an American conf # but was not able to check-in online on either American or Alaska airlines. Once I called to get the Alaskan conf # I was still unable to check-in with anyone other than an agent F2F as airport. Additionally, no Alaska flight number information was provide on tickets or confirmation so finding appropriate baggage claim, etc became a hunting exercise. Limited food options or in-flight enteratainment for a long flight (5+hours). Inflight entertainment options were limited. You can use your own device with limited free TV programming. Movie rentals and popular TV shows are $3-6 a piece. Device rental is $10."
Cons: "pretty cold and no blankets in economy"
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."
Cons: "I don't particularly like the cookies they hand out. I also don't like the fact that food has to be purchased on a five hour flight."
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."
Pros: "The entertainment options are good as well as free messaging on wifi"
Cons: "The boarding was late, the take off was late (weather), then arriving in rdu was delayed because the bridge was broken. All around, I’ve had better experiences but I’ve had much worse on SW."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Pros: "Crew professionalism."
Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of the gate from ATL. No one was available for at least 15 minutes to move the jetway to let us off the plane when we arrived in RDU."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
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."
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding and service."
Cons: "Food mediocre, coffee bitter like pots weren't cleaned, frigid cabin temperatures while in flight."
Cons: "Crew could have been nicer and everything could have been on time"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They kept us updated."
Cons: "Not wearing masked, but I understand the requirement to wear one."
Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"
Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."
Cons: "You could have been on time. You negatively impacts ppls lives and don’t give af."
Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."
Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Cons: "It was hot"
Cons: "I was in 10C a So I was able to hear a disgruntled AA employee. Just like office politics. But up in the air. I didn’t need to hear"
Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Pros: "Good flight with a little turbulence."
Cons: "Better entertainment options."
Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
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: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."
Pros: "NOTHING !! I lost my flight because in the email I received you all put the wrong airline on it and nobody took responsability for it . I ended up paying $311.00 to get the next flight back to Austin ."
Cons: "In the email it was stated that my first flight was with British Airways, so i wasted time making the wrong line . Only to get to the counter and waste more tome trying to find me in the system to then tell me my flight is with American Airline . I double check my email where it clearly shows: 1st flight-British Airway and 2nd flight-American Airline . This is not acceptable, nobody wants to take responsability for sending me the wrong information in the email. Had I know both of my flights were with American Airline I wouldn’t lost my plane because I would make the right line to begin with ."
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: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "La organización para abordar y salir del avión es excelente. Muy buena atención de los empleados. Avión limpio y con opción para entretenimiento y cargar los equipos electrónicos. Muy buen vuelo."
Cons: "Nothing bad."
Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
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."
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "Easy boarding, nice & quiet customers & crew & darkness made it easy to sleep a bit on this red-eye flight."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Traveling out was easy"
Cons: "Coming back was harder. As this was booked via Alaska but flown with partner American - coming back American's website would not allow me to print my boarding pass. A note said I had to check with customer service when I got to the airport. Which took 40 min to get to a rep. Once there they had trouble printing. Had to call corp - then finally a boarding pass with 25 min to get though TSA and to the gate. #stressfull"
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Pros: "Arrives early Always on time Quick flight"
Cons: "Small plane No beverage service"
Cons: "To many delays"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were rough and I didn't understand the process of selecting seating for the return trip, so my wife and I had to sit 10 rows apart a few days after we got married."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
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: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Pros: "Check-in, crew and food were good...."
Cons: "Watching movies on a drop-down screen is very dated and entertainment selection was lacking.... It took FOREVER for the luggage to be unloaded!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service was great. Clean plane wonderful crew. We left our gate 10 early, and landed 30 minutes before our estimated time."
Cons: "It was not AA fault, but since we arrived so early we waited more than an hour for a new gate. Ours was occupied by a cancelled flight because something was wrong with the plane and couldn't move it."
Cons: "last minute seat change to front of eco cabin (no foot room or small bag allowed)"
Pros: "One of the attendants was nice the other lady was mean."
Cons: "We had to wait over 40 min before we can get out of the airplane. It ruined my whole flight, they didn't have a gate for us to exit. Most likely I will not be flying with American Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew did a great job of keeping the passengers taken care of."
Cons: "Flight delays and almost missed the checkout of our rental car"
Cons: "Seats weren't comfy, plus no entertainment and Wi-Fi."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "Efficiency was great!"
Cons: "Seats somewhat uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nice seats and lots of space"
Cons: "Rude crew on board"
Pros: "The seats were way to small. Nearly every feature costs money. The crew was rude."
Cons: "Seat size us the top comaint."
Pros: "On time, happy and efficient crew."
Cons: "No food, but beverages offered, understandable due to the quick flight."
Pros: "We were upgraded to seats with more room. After a 8+ hour flight before this one, it was welcome. We had to deal with the hurricane. After delays, the pilot filed a different flight plan. The gate people kept us updated and you had the feeling they were trying to get us to our destination. We left a couple hours late and had a very skillful landing into some pretty stiff winds but landed safely."
Pros: "Lots of room in the seats and for legs. Clean. Friendly staff."
Cons: "That I couldneed watch TV without paying for it. Such a short flight to pay 7.99."
Cons: "Nothing is provided: you have to pay for everything, food and movies, paying a return ticket at 1000$ between Indy and Hawaii, I was expecting much more!!"
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very small seats, no leg room."
Cons: "The gentleman beside me had 2 children with him but only purchased 2 seats. He and his children were in my lap and kicking me the entire time. It was a full flight so I couldn't change seats. I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."
Pros: "Good just hate middle seat."
Cons: "The 2 people in front of me were told they'd have to check their bags, as was I. They boarded with the bags and I saw that there was plenty of room in the overhead bins for mine too. I could have avoided the baggage claim wait. If you make this determination then it should be enforced. Next time I too will carry on my tagged bag"
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
Pros: "Good service, helped me make my connection"
Cons: "I'm 5'0 tall and the seats are tiny even for me. Which is pretty bad."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."
Cons: "Boarding took so long between all the kids which i think could have moved faster. The seats are always tight without much room. I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "My husband and I were upgraded (without our asking) from Economy to Economy Plus....Yea more leg room for tall husband."
Cons: "With the automatic Upgrade from Economy to Economy Plus, we gained a little more leg room for taller husband, however our seat would not recline. We asked the Attendant and she said that row 15 was just ahead of the Escape seats and they don't recline. I felt like my head was being pushed forward the entire flight home... Most uncomfortable and we had the night flight... no sleep... too uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Pros: "Convenient to home... More,direct flight"
Cons: "Leg/knee room was poor... With a rear row seat, reclining was limited. Trying to bend down to loosen my shoelaces, it was barely possible, and tying shoes,on landing was impossible... No room to lean forward to reach down to get to the shoes. Not the most cramped flight I've had (that record was in a CASA124 from Friendly Island Airway from PPG to Vava'u, Tonga) While I attempted to sleep, my partner was interested in the entertainment, but was shocked to find it was all watch for $$$. Perhaps we are so used to international carriers with free movies on demand, with a choice of 30-40"
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. New plane but seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, in fact, arrival was early."
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight."
