Pros: "Ground staff and crew were great"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Food and entertainment system"
Pros: "Didn't go."
Pros: "I liked the schedule and frequency."
Cons: "Oh...where to begin?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and food for purchase was reasonably priced."
Cons: "There was no In Flight Entertainment seat back screens, which is unusual for a 5+ hour flight so the only way to watch anything was to download the GoGo app, which can only be downloaded on the ground and wasn’t even mentioned until after takeoff."
Pros: "Food was excellent service was good"
Cons: "Boarding was too slow we sat at gate for almost an hour for baggage to be loaded"
Pros: "Premium economy seat was tolerable"
Cons: "Plane was too warm for comfort. Hell was getting from concourse N to C at SeaTac with the train OOC."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth landing."
Cons: "The “Mediterranean tapas” meal is basically a tiny tiny school lunch, minus the comfort of PB&J. Want dried apricots? You get FOUR. All in all not too bad though. The entertainment/WiFi system is limiting- maybe REMIND us to bring headphones? And no WiFi unless you have T-Mobile? Tease."
Pros: "We had exit rows so had extra leg room. Makes a long flight more comfortable"
Cons: "Our overall experience was pleasant and without incident. Flights also left on time"
Pros: "Crew was not amazing, no service offerd (not even water), only snacks and no beverage service. When I went to restroom, I asked crew who were watching TV and chatting for a glass of water, got a nasty stare, the water, and no acknowledgement of my thank you. Captain very open with taxi info."
Cons: "Polite flight attendant, at least service for those of us who can't sleep even on overnight flights. Middle seat not great but okay, everything else on ground in Kona lovely as usual."
Pros: "Crew and seating was comfortable"
Pros: "Last flight I had they didn’t charge for my luggage and this one it was $30 and it was the same luggage bag from last time don’t under why"
Cons: "Why did they charge me in this flight for the same bag"
Pros: "The plane was warm"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for almost an hour"
Pros: "Updates on flight"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "If there was a less than one star that is what they deserve. SFO flight was late. They gave away my seat on my connection to Kalispell. They basically blamed me for being late and not being there on time. Two others from my flight were allowed to make the connection but told me that they gave my seat away because I was late. We all showed up at the same time from the late flight. I talked to 3 people including customer service and did not get a single “I’m Sorry”. Do they not communicate with each other when a flight is late and they have passengers for connections running late? They told me they don’t talk. The best they can do is put me standby for 9:30 flight and if I cannot get on that flight I have to wait until morning. My daughter is in a competition tomorrow morning and thanks to Alaska Airlines I’m going to miss it. I’m sitting here writing this review, paying for a dinner I should not be paying for and probably searching out a hotel room until morning when I can catch a flight. Unbelievable the lack of empathy."
Pros: "more leg room in the main cabin than on other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was so darn efficient and the pilot was so funny over the speaker! Thank you Alaska for slaying this flight"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and professional"
Cons: "We had to make an emergency medical landing which is fine it had to be done. But then we had to wait a while for catering to come and bring us food. Most of us had already gotten off the plane to use the restrooms and get food. Then because the caterers took to long they cancelled the food order and told us they were having fingers out food vouchers. It was annoying g cause we had already gone and gotten food and spent our own money. Now everyone booked it off the plan to get food and we now waited another hour for people to come back. So altogether the plane was delayed 4 hours they could have just given us the food on the plane for free."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Every single flight left extremely late which meant I was running through the airport to catch my connections."
Pros: "The ground service"
Cons: "One Flight Attendant who continually made NO attempt to NOT hit passengers as she walked down the aisle. I don’t think she liked her job."
Pros: "Comfortable seating but I paid for it"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bogged down. The one from first class came into premium seating to help some people"
Pros: "Living in Seattle, there is no other choice. Alaska gets me where I need to go with great service, great planes and direct flights to my most important destinations. Considering I have banned United, Southwest, and Spirit from my travel searches, it's nice to know my hometown airline is so damned good."
Cons: "Dogs on the plane. had to smell farts & puke the whole time, could hardly breathe. am alergic"
Pros: "That I had a whole row to myself"
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly. Est landing i have had in years."
Cons: "The seats are lime sitting on wood."
Pros: "The baggage and check in went smoothly."
Cons: "The original flight was booked as a nonstop flight and was changed to add a stop in Seattle and then fly back to Oakland. It added additional time and inconvenience to our original booking."
Pros: "Multiple beverage services"
Cons: "Stuck next to a large person again that over flowed there seat into my seat"
Pros: "We finely got there"
Cons: "Getting on and off plane then waiting then getting back on plane then waiting to get the count right. Then leaving."
Cons: "Only food available on a flight that was 5 1/2 hours was food that had to be purchased. I think this is ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything is good. Service Excellence all around!"
Cons: "More options in snacks."
Pros: "I really appreciated that Alaska Airlines called me in advance to let me know that my original flight would be substantially delayed. They reseated me on a direct flight to Portland. Otherwise, I would have missed the wedding I was attending. I appreciate how proactive Alaska is."
Pros: "Charging capabilities with easy access!"
Pros: "Poor experience"
Cons: "Flight cancelled at the last minute."
Pros: "Nice short flight with no turbulence, comfortable temperature made it easy to sleep."
Pros: "The flight attendants were cheerful and helpful. They like adds the back of the plane right after the first class which aided in getting everyone to their seats quickly. The plane was clean and up to date."
Pros: "Flight staff very attentive and friendly - I love flying Alaska!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Maintenance issues caused extensive delays. Ran out of food options by the time they got to my row."
Pros: "Really good flight with great crew"
Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
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: "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: "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: "Crew was great under bad circumstances...they held their heads up."
Cons: "The crew miscounted the passengers on 3 occasions forcing them to come row by row to confirm our last names twice. This delay caused us to almost miss our window to get to Seattle (which was already delayed by almost 2 hours). Luckily we had a 3 1/2 hour layover or we would have missed our only connection. There was also a communication breakdown between our crew and Seattle, almost causing us to deplane...luckily avoided at the last minute when Seattle changed their minds...ugh. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT ALL."
Pros: "I missed all my appointments"
Cons: "I have to pay $200 for a ride . I'm very hungry and very tired."
Cons: "Flight schedule is what I did not like. It would have been good if there was a straight flight from Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks) to LA and LA to Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks)"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "A 5 1/2 flight and just a tiny bag of pretzels. Bring back meals to flights, with NO extra charge up front or on flight. Planes with tv's built into seats are better. On cross-country trips, movies should be free as well as WiFi. These extra charges are proposterous."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and charismatic. The lady at the check-in desk moved our flight up to help us avoid delays. Everybody was extremely helpful about getting my wife a wheelchair and getting her on and off the plane. Everybody always had a smile. The flight itself was smooth...barely any turbulence and good landing."
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: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "I know it was a night flight but the food choice Was very limited."
Cons: "Not sufficient time between flights - catching next leg to Atlanta. Had to literally run to another concourse to make flight even though the arrival from Anchorage was on time."
Pros: "Take off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "I am writing on behalf of my mom. She said it would be nice to be inform ahead of time that she had to take a train/shuttle in order to get to baggage claim. She was very nervous as she was traveling alone for the first time."

automated check in machines were down so had to wait in line for checkin. Then, even though we were listed as Gate 10 it was really gate 11 in a separate area which was never announced. Very confusing. Flight was bare basic but for such a short flight what can you expect

Several delays, couldn’t be seated with wife on half the flights

Everything was smooth as silk. The plane and the ride were excellent.

Best airline in the sky!!!! Hands down

Very efficient boarding. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Pros: "The temperature was comfortable. I liked the movies provided."
Cons: "I didn't like having to use my own device for on flight entertainment. My phone is too small for the space provided making it a little awkward to watch a movie. I also felt very cramped and didn't know there wouldn't be a window in the seat ahead of the emergency exit row. Also, I have food allergies so the food provided I could not eat. The main meal hit 2 major allergens (wheat and eggs) and even the first snack, potato chips, had wheat in them!"
Cons: "Super helpful because I was in a wheelchair"
Pros: "Great crew even for such a short flight."
Cons: "More snacks"
Pros: "The crew opening up two lanes for boarding."
Cons: "We were 45 min. delayed. I got updates so no big deal, really."
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for almost an hour after arriving and the pilot totally lied about the expected wait, “About 10 minutes” when we first arrived and then no update for 45 minutes."
Cons: "Movies in a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Most everything was great - crew was super friendly, seats were comfortable, flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "Seemed odd to a lot of my friends (who were also on the flight) that there was no WiFi on the plane, and it was disappointing that there was literally zero free entertainment."
Pros: "It was a Boeing 717. Short hop. Loaded quickly. Took off on time. Bags made it to our connecting flight. :)"
Cons: "Nothing really. Just a short hop connection flight."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like, all went well."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Cons: "Four hour delay..."
Pros: "This is, by far, the superior way to travel! I'm choosing Hawaiian for all my future flights, if I can afford it. You don't feel like a canned sardine."
Pros: "The crew"
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: "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: "Comfort"
Pros: "Service on board plane was good."
Cons: "Too warm in the plane. Not the greatest thing with a full flight and lots of body heat!"
Cons: "no vegetarian food options so all the other passengers ate except for me and my travel partner"
Pros: "Truly friendly stewards More leg room Aloha energy Free tropical rum drink! Relaxed energy"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Update to inflight services, a little outdated and would like to see more selection."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane looked well maintained."
Pros: "Crew was both friendly and professional. Boarding was handled well. We left/ arrived on time."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "They changed the flight time on my return from OGG to SJC and I missed my Southwest connecting flight to SNA. I had to fly into LAX arriving after 11pm and had to take Uber home which cost me $40. I tried to have me fly direct from OGG to LAX but they wanted to charge me $235. I had made reservations way in advance and did not anticipate changed flight times."
Pros: "I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights."
Cons: "This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going."
Pros: "We had 1 hour delays on 1st departure and 2.5 hours delay on second. the seats are ex-termly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Service, movies are numer one"
Cons: "Nothing to not like on this flight"
Pros: "We were Platinum so we could use the Premier Club room."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Since I bought my ticket from kayak I didn't get a reminder from kayak to check in- nor did Hawaiian Airlines -"
Pros: "Crew was kind and efficient. Flying any airline is not much fun anymore and all airlines tend to offer less and less. Hawaiian at least tries to make the experience fun. I appreciate that."
Pros: "everything was fine but flight on Thursday from Kona to Maui"
Cons: "Kayak info about our flight on Thursday 7/16 was incorrect. Flight departed at 12:10 not 12:45 almost missed flight. Still on vacation so don't know if flight info is correct on departure on 7/15"
Pros: "Loved the free guava-oj, real props for safety features, and friendly flight attendants. Smooth flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "The employees and crew were incredibly helpful and nice. This alone means we will likely fly Hawaiian again. Also, the plane was large enough for a 2x4x2 seat arrangement so my family of four was able to sit next to each other (versus the common 3x3 on other domestic flights)."
Cons: "Food options were very limited, meal food was borderline terrible and the in-flight "free" entertainment was non-existent. Since everyone around us (including us) had iPads and tablets, we weren't that concerned about a lack of in-flight entertainment."
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"
Cons: "The long wait to get through the TSA line as I was in a wheelchair. It took over 15 minutes to get a female attendate."
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: "Quick boarding Very supportive staff"
Cons: "None"
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."
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: "Gate attendent was very nice and kept us informed about the delay. Mostly I was pleased with my experience."
Cons: "The delay. I was meeting friends in Kahului and they had to wait for me."
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: "The plane needed more leg room."
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"

Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Cleaner window"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"

Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks and movies on point."
Cons: "No cheese its."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Cons: "Small airplane, noissy"
Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "Delta is professional and safe. The best fares ever."
Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"
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: "I LIKED EVERYTHING,SERVICE AND ATENTION WAS EXELLENT ,PERSONAL WAS GREAT, MY BEST FLIGHT EVER..."
Cons: "WELL,ALL TV SCRENS ON THE RIGHT SIDE WASN'T WORKING,BUT NOT A BIG DEAL..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost baggage. No one told us anything till after an hour"
Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"
Pros: "I liked that we got to my return destination early"
Cons: "The were no outlets and the wifi was not working. That's a big deal for me because I needed to do work on the plane!"
Pros: "Love the hospitality and the staffs kindness"
Pros: "Customer service was great"
Pros: "Delta’s crew were professional"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, reclining only about an inch is not enough for a 5+ hr trip"

Pros: "The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me."
Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple cancellations and a total of THIRTY HOURS OF TRAVEL TIME for what was supposed to be 5 hours of travel in the beginning. I am still sitting in a god damn airport as we speak."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Pros: "Nothing"

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: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."

Cons: "Free wifi, free upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Nice crew. Very smooth flight."
Pros: "They had the AC on while we were waiting on the plane at the gate for 1.5hours"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed for 2 hours, information was inaccurate/missing, they knew we'd miss our connections but did nothing except, "they'll deal with it in San Francisco" and when we landed there was no one in sight to help us--no escorts/expedite to gates, no one to tell us where to get rebooked, and after going back and forth between terminals, waited in line an hour to get rebooked on a series of flights that would get me in 22hrs later after my original flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "My belongings stolen"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Cons: "Aircraft at least in our section was very cold the whole flight. My young son was very cold even in a sweatshirt. I was very cold in a sweater, shirt, and jeans. I asked a crew member if they might have a blanket to cover my son, he brusquely replied “No blankets, no pillows!” So we just froze for 5.5 hours."
Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty goid"
Cons: "They made a horrible mistake by getting the bag count or weight wrong and we had to go back to the gate and it cost us 2 1/2 hours."

Pros: "Quick boarding, near empty flight."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Internet slow to access."

Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
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."
Cons: "I didn't get ANY flight status reports until I had arrived and was at my destination for the night!! American did a fine job. I got updates TODAY on my flight and baggage claim for yesterdays flight form you!!! Your service sucked balls!!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "Routine flight. No issues on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row seats, felt they were not worth the extra money. The extra legroom was great but the armrest did it move and I felt like I was sitting in a box."
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
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: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"
Cons: "Flight didn't exist"
Cons: "the airline requires you to download their app and add your card details before boarding in order to order food. Same for entertainment, need to download the app on the ground. Too much faff"

Arriving and departing passengers sadly get mingled due to the location of the gates (and how the place is arranged). Caused low level stress. We got through Checked bags and TSA quickly. Do not get to the airport too early! United did not open bag check-in until 11:30 local time and it's not posted anywhere! United's website said they are open KOA from 7:30 AM to 1 PM and 5 PM to 9PM (which is incorrect). No seating on the insecure side of TSA!

Cons: "Small seats. Uncomfortable. Limited and expensive food."
Cons: "More water, drinks. The food was absolutely horrible."
Pros: "Good communication between once we had to re route for technical difficulty and united gave us 100$ coupon to fly with them again after our trip changed from 9hrs to 18 hrs"
Cons: "No TVs, no charger points, not a lot of knee space/leg room, not enough luggage storage at back of plane, can’t sleep in isle seat due to people constantly bumping into you while walking by"
Pros: "It ended up being united not Lufthansa and they were delayed 45 minutes so they rerouted me through Munich which made me miss a free bus to my destination outside of Rome"
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: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
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: "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."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Timely flight. Smooth and easy check in."
Pros: "Nonstop is the greatest."
Pros: "Uncomfortable"
Cons: "A few more inches of seating"
Cons: "More room for your knees"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable in first class. Very happy with that experience for short haul flight. Enjoyed the service. Flight attendant checked on me multiple times and offered beverages."
Cons: "Snack/food choices."
Pros: "I was in first class and talked some w/ the pilot during our massive and enjoyed that. But not the almost 3 hr wait. The lunch, a choice of brisket or spinach ravioli - I took the pasta - was quite good. Amazing for an airline now known for service. The wine was also pretty good."
Cons: "The wait, the wait and the wait. Economy passengers - my friend Tanya was in econ - got not much during the wait. At least she had the whole row 38 D-E to herself. I sent her the cheese plate from my meal. Even though the crew kept us informed, it was too little and too late. When I asked the Captain when the missing part blew off he had no answer. Not impressive..."
Pros: "Nice, clean plane. Boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Air traffic delay at FRA for almost an hour sitting in the boarded plane. Terrible food - almost threw up after the flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the food was excellent. I was provided with plenty of snacks and drinks and I felt like I never went without!"
Cons: "I could’ve used more direction once we landed on where to go and what to do."
Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."
Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."
Pros: "Our flight home was Great. At kona airport the flight crew was Amazing, the captain even let my daughter set in the driver seat, which is something she will never forget."
Cons: "Downside there was no onboard t.v.s which makes 4 hours seem long."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and the movie choices were good"
Cons: "The seats were pretty tight and there were only pretzel snacks"
Pros: "There were no positives to this flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. The crew stood at the airport gate for a good hour chatting with each other completely disregarding the fact they had a plane full of people around them waiting to board. They were drinking coffee taking selfies it was ridiculous."
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."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and sat next to someone who was real sick.Should make sick people wear a mask.I got sick the next day."
Cons: "When did a garment bag become a third luggage. Terrible company"
Pros: "On time, quick boarding, smooth flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "No one let the children on their flight. Should have never been able to be booked on this site in the first place. Thanks. We just lost 600!!! Never using again"
Cons: "There were no tvs on the diet flight you had to use your own device. On the second flight you had to pay to watch tv. It's free to watch movies in American Airlines!"
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."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Pros: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Pros: "the layover waiting time was relatively fast! Also, the united airlines staff was very helpful in answering any questions I had."
Cons: "I did not like that my first plane coming out of eugen had about an hour delay and I had to rush to my second flight. If it hadn't been for me being guided and me basically running I might have missed my second flight."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The a/c on the plain was not very cold and it needs to blow more air"
Pros: "The flight was good. Little bumpy but that was to be expected with a hurricane near by"
Cons: "An old plane with only public TV. American crew is not too pleasant compared to the English crew on our other flight"
Pros: "Newer planes"
Cons: "More and better snacks, should provide pillows"
Pros: "We ended up getting a free bag check because the flight was full."
Cons: "One free bag check not included. Both legs of our flight were delayed. Even though I had brought an iPad, I couldn't figure out the entertainment system and couldn't download the entertainment app from the Apple app store (I couldn't get the store to open on the onboard wireless system to download the app)."
