Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "Warm greeting at KCI airport from the attendants of Alaska Airlines. Short flight from Seattle to Portland."

I really like that all I have to do is print my bag tag and drop my luggage at the desk. I don't ever have to wait in long lines except for security at PDX. I fly often and will continue to fly Alaska!"

Cons: "I had two different trips planned with Alaska. I ended up staying in Kansas City, and Alaska cancelled my flight. Said the only option I had was to pay $500 for a new flight. I found a delta flight form $300. Not the kind of service I had expected from this airline"

Cons: "announcements in Turkish is interrupted your screen in front of every passenger and you have to listen to it even if you have no idea of what they taking about because it will block everything your are doing .. The solution is very easy as you can setup the screen to your language and the computer can choose to show you only the announcements that is in your language that make sense to you."

Pros: "On time, friendly, good food"

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are so small, no leg room at all. I'm 5'7 so I'm not that tall but my knees were very close to the seat in front of me. The mans sitting next to me had broad shoulders so during the entire flight he was on my seat. Which I didn't mind because I know he could not help it since the seats were so narrow. I would never fly Turkish airlines international again and would tell people not to as well."

Pros: "The crew are very friendly and in general and the flight was very nice"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Weeks before the flight, Turkish Airways denied giving me a seat. In the day before the flight their on-line computer system did not recognize my ticket number all though it has for the previous three legs of the ticket. When I arrive at the airport I was told the flight was over booked and giving a stand by boarding card. There were about 15 of us with stand by. Only two were denied boarding. Although they did not say so it was clear it was because it was a Kayak reservation. It took 3 1/2 hours in Istanbul airport to get a boarding pass on the next flight. I spoke to eight Turkish Airway representatives. None of them were helpful. Each shifted me to another office elsewhere in the airport without giving me clear direction. Apparently the issue was that they did not want o pay compensation although I never asked for this. In the final office back outside passport control I said I was looking for a boarding pass not compensation.. They gave me on on the 6:10 pm flight and had me sign a statement that I had received 600 Euros in compensation. When I arrive at JFK, my bag was not on the flight. They say they will deliver it today."

Cons: "The entertainment system touch is poor. Unable to use when it does not respond correctly"

Pros: "Service. Very professional staff. Great food and drinks."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very courteous. Aircraft was clean, nice and spacious. In flight entertainment was very good"

Pros: "Food is decent. Entertainment is above par."
Cons: "This was 2nd out of three Turkish flights I've taken that was delayed causing me to run to catch my connection. Also, there was some sort of dilemma or drama with the in flight staff. It took an hour at least from when the drink cart came out until I was actually served a glass of water. The staff kept discussing something at the cart, then leaving the cart, then returning for another discussion, etc..."

Pros: "Good food"

Pros: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They changed my flight date so many times, I was unable to fly"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Excellent air lines overall. From the hospitality of the crew and all their efforts did not go unnoticed. The food was great and the selection of entertainment that was available was much needed for a 10 hr flight."
Cons: "The only issue I had was the WIFI. I was unsuccessful in logging on after a couple of hours and a million attempts. Trying everything but was unable to get my a lot of work done, so it was unproductive time for me."

Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."

Cons: "Basically the wifi doesn't work on these long haul flights. It's either not connected or extremely slow. I finally gave up and didn't bother"

Pros: "Leg rooms are much smaller compare to other airlines."

Pros: "There was a lot of service. The crew were attentive or helpful if asked."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and sat for two hours on the plane without taking off.

Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew courteous and everything was ok until I got to my destination."
Cons: "It turns out my checked luggage never made it to Budapest and the people at the airport did nothing to help with the fact that I had nothing on me because of that. They took my information to deliver the suitcase but since the luggage would not reach me for at least a week they did nothing to compensate for the fact that all I had on me were some books and my computer. I had to buy all new toiletries and since I am travelling for work basically had nothing to wear for my meetings. This was a really bad experience"

Pros: "Very helpful and professional crew, despite some pretty snarky passengers. Seemed to go out of their way to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "Bigger seats would have been nice, but these were okay. Changing planes at JFK was tight due to late departure from Atlanta, but it worked out. Overall, no complaints and I would fly Delta again given the opportunity and choice. Thanks!"

Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."

Cons: "Multiple delays made us miss 4th July celebrations"

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."

Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"

Cons: "If there could have been some sort of service at DTW to take customers to the gate of their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."

Cons: "seat need to be more comfortable"

Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"

Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"

Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."

Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."

Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Row 40 was uncomfortable due to inability of seat adjustments."
Cons: "Couldn't adjust seat"

Pros: "The overall flight was good."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not anything"

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."

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"

Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"

Pros: "I appreciated the helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "On the flight to Kansas City we had movie screens which spoiled me and made me think we would have them on the way back to Atlanta."

Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."

Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"

Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."

Pros: "Good uneven full flight"

Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted.

Cons: "Better snacks"

Cons: "The wifi didn't work. No seatback everyone's screens, only a screen over there middle row of seats. Maybe update your 20 year old livery."

Pros: "Help with check-in"
Cons: "More friendly staff on airplane"

Cons: "Thank reserved seats at time of purchase for a British airways plane and paid for extra legroom. When I checked in, I was routed to American Airlines and the seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. Why did I pay and shouldn’t I get a refund?"

Pros: "Trip was wonderful."

Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation. That kind of upset me. Just a short explanation would be fine."

Pros: "The flight attendants were able to find a place for my carry-on luggage when the overhead bins were filling up. I got a seat with extra leg room by chance (without having to pay the extra fees)."

Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth on time flight. Easy access to DC from Reagan airport"

Pros: "The whole experience was stress free and comfortable."

Cons: "We booked our airline tickets at the same time and our seats were separate. This was the first time flying for my wife so she was very upset when we found out our seats were not together. We had to pay an extra $60 to have the seats moved to an exit seat."

Cons: "It was canceled and our trip has been delayed a day."

Pros: "On time. No delays. Smooth landing"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very small aircraft that didn’t even have a working bathroom. All roll-ons had to be checked because overhead bins were too small to hold. Seats didn’t recline and rows were too close. Very uncomfortable aircraft."

Pros: "On time, non stop"
Cons: "New higher prices for less service."

Cons: "The boarding process."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."

Cons: "- The entertainment system was not working - needed few restarts - on many seats - Food - horrible - Air hostess dropped water on me - not a problem by itself as accidents do happen. However her comment was more annoying - no sorries - not apologies - just said - "oh it's just water - it is refreshing" - Seats pushback was almost broken - it would break your thumb to push the button and then almost stand to push the seat back. - This was transatlantic flight and you charge for liquor? It is not free - you have to purchase - They ran out of red wine (which was free) by the end of the first meal. Do you keep just one bottle for this big 777 fight. - Overall experience was horrible."

Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Cons: "Small crew at Santa Fe airport so luggage took a while"

Pros: "No issues. The whole trip went well."
Cons: "The little lady sitting next to me took my seat but it just let her have the window seat because she could not speak english"

Pros: "It was on time, crew was very polite and attentive."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"
Cons: "I didn't like that it took so long for us to actually get on the plane. My flight was supposed to leave around 4pm but it didn't actually leave till around 9pm so I had to sleep overnight when we landed in Dallas"

Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I haven't gotten it yet"

Pros: "Everything was smooth, even the getting through TSA process. I had minimal wait time."

Pros: "The plane we new and amazing, loved all the extra features."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."

Cons: "This was my 5th American flight in 3 days, four of which were significantly delayed. I was supposed to meet relatives for dinner; instead I got there at bed time"

Cons: "That my earlier flight was cancelled."

Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly"

Cons: "An hour delay"

Pros: "Easy on and off"

Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"

Pros: "The captain was wonderful"
Cons: "The crew were jerks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."

Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."

Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."

Pros: "Thanks for the free cocktail"

Cons: "Gate personnel was unable to direct my 77 year old mother where package claim was. Being unable to go to the gate without a ticket I was unable to assist her. She wandered for about 35 minutes before I could decipher where she was at and was able to direct her by phone. The gate personnel just told her to follow everyone else. What a thing to say to someone."

Pros: "Forthright on giving out informatiom"

Pros: "Security was quick and easy to get through."
Cons: "There were only 2 stalls in the bathroom in our gate area."

Cons: "More room space between seats"

Cons: "Not enough room!"

Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"

Pros: "Flight was delayed by mechanical difficulties and weather in Newark. Boarding was confused, and the announcements in KC were muffled. Once in the air, The crew was exceptional, explaining what the strategy was for avoiding as much turbulence as they could."

Cons: "Late."

Pros: "Great flight! On time. Pleasant crew. Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went perfectly! Check-in easy, security line fast...gate support was professional and pleasant, flight attendants great, pilot very friendly & it was a jammed packed flight!"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Free movies/TV with an app"
Cons: "Very small plane, felt every bump as well as every passenger that walked by"

Pros: "Online movies and TV"

Pros: "Easy to board friendly"
Cons: "The snack food selection, price on wifi"

Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."

Pros: "No turbulence. Easy-in, easy-out"
Cons: "Not much leg room or seat space. Also for over 2 hour flight, no food was offered."

Pros: "Good flight. On time. Good crew. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough room for suitcases in overhead bins. Crew could tell people not to put jackets in overhead bins but did not. Food selection - would be nice to have a choice of 2-3 snacks."

Pros: "Both flights were delayed."

Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."

Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."

Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"

Cons: "there was no outlets on the flight for me to conduct business and to use my laptop to access wifi."

Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"

Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"

Pros: "Considerate crew"
Cons: "Late, plane problem, replacement needed hasmat, blood, missed connection, sent to hotel, two hours sleep before I had to spend $60 for taxi to get back to airport, baggage mishandled, baggage arrived two days late."

Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."

Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."

Pros: "It eventually ended"
Cons: "Spent almost an hour before actually taking off. Terrible service. No"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."

Pros: "The stewardess that tended to me was extremely nice and had a wonderful attitude. Effortlessly, she accomplished her job and made myself and everyone around feel comfortable with limited means."
Cons: "Flight delay. Some flights have phone chargers-This flight did not. no pillows"

Pros: "Leg room on the flight was better than expected."
Cons: "I slept most the way. So which I had my pillow and blanket. Lol"

Cons: "Seat in back of plane from Houston to Tampa horrible seats would not incline foot space barely big enough for legs <9 inches. Those seats should never be assigned I feel like I wasted $ by the horrible seating!"

Cons: "Seat cushion uncomfortable, seat back wouldn't stay forward"

Cons: "I don't like small crowded planes. You get off at gate 50 and have to race to gate 20 to catch your next flight."

Cons: "Service. Flight attendant negative attitude and disrespect for customers."

Pros: "I have no compliants at all. :)"

Cons: "Three gate changes prior to departure"
