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."

The seats seemed thin when we got on the plane and I was worried at first but they were actually reasonably comfortable! The crew was very friendly and helpful! And free wifi for messaging services was awesome as I was able to iMessage my family during the flight! Didn't try any of the good while on board."

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: "That they seats weren't wide enough."

Pros: "The A330 was comfortable and the crew was efficient and cheerful."
Cons: "Delta is the best experience we've had of late."

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

Pros: "All the attention bestowed upon me"

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: "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."

Pros: "Crew were ok. Not that comfortable."
Cons: "seat need to be more comfortable"

Pros: "Food and service was amazing."

Pros: "Good flight overall"
Cons: "Although I have priority status -The ground crew in Amsterdam gave me hard time with 7 extra Pounds, and I was trying to take it out of the suitcase to no avail. Eventually the agent I was checking in with got busy, I went to a new agent, and with a flick of a keyboard he approved the extra rate based on my status, without even have my to request it."

Pros: "On time, clean cabin, attentive and professional flight attendants, plenty of overhead storage."
Cons: "Nothing. No complaints."

Pros: "Everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!!!!!!!!!11111!!!!1111111!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Horrible seats. Scraped up my knees on a screwhead on the seat in front of me. Way too cramped."

Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."

Pros: "Too crowded overhead storage got filled right away. Had to place my bag under seat. Could not extend my legs."

Pros: "Rare, the flight wasn’t so full that everyone was uncomfortable. The flight attendant staff were friendly."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Late bumby ride"

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Pros: "Every one was nice"
Cons: "No problems"

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: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"

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: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."

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: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

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. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"

Cons: "No alcohol was available"

Pros: "Delicious pretzels and sparkling water."
Cons: "Horrible at customer service and those travelers with no status."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Not canceling the flight with no reason given."

Pros: "Good service and great customer service"
Cons: "App functionality"

Pros: "The ground crew is helpful in fixing our seats. Boarding procedures are smooth and overall journey is comfortable"
Cons: "the airline can provide more options for us to selecting seat at self help counter. Provide options for food. There are 2 vegan meals out of 3"

Cons: "Better snacks"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."

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)."
Cons: "There are no snacks served on the flight. The Philadelphia Airport was overcrowded. There was hardly any room to navigate and there was a long line at nearly every women's bathroom."

Pros: "I liked boarding first and the additional leg room that I purchased"
Cons: "My TSA Pre was not on my boarding pass even though I have had a KTN since this past May!!"

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: "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."

Pros: "Seats were mildly more comfortable than DELTA seats."
Cons: "Passengers with small children weren't offered to board early like with every other airline I've traveled with... Delta, spirit, united, etc. So I ended up being humiliated because we held up the line trying to get situated with the baby."

Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"

Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."

Cons: "I sat at tha airport for over 9 hours before my flight left. Very poor communication and customer service."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Dirty plane. DIFFICULTY hearing which baggage kiosk to use. Should have a board with postings"

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: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"

Cons: "Internet wasn't working."

Pros: "Easy on and off"

Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"

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."

Cons: "Everything was good"

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: "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: "Got us here early, smooth ride"

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"

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No jetway, long walk to the next gate and then the same long walk back down to board the plane for the second leg of the trip."

Pros: "The new planes are great."

Pros: "It was seamless. Everyone excellent and flights on time."
Cons: "Still would like a snack choice."

Pros: "uneventful - great pilots, made effort to correct for turbulence when they could."
Cons: "no food or entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing. One flight attendant gave me a gingere when I was sick from landing and that was helpful."
Cons: "Compeltly ridiculous that you had to pay for every single thing. I think the only complimentary thing was cranberry juice and water. Paying for entertainment and wifi with seperate fees felt really cheap and tacky along with the plane itself. It was run down and looked and felt even more that way when you're competing with flights from companies like JetBlue where they work to make you feel comfortable and provide free entertainment. We also were an hour delayed and sat on the runway for an hour before we left due to too much traffic over Cuba. It felt as a customer that it was poor planning on the companies part and that that could have been avoided earlier. Companies that put effort into a comfortable flying experience and care about customer satisfaction will be getting my money in the future. United would be my last choice when make travel plans in the future."

Cons: "Better bag prices"

Pros: "Excelent cree"
Cons: "They are overbooking flights."

Cons: "At checking the machine wasn't reading our passports and then we also got charged for luggage at security while the desk rep said that was not applicable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Use American Airlines"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Complimentary drinks and snacks"

Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."

Cons: "- they call for parents and children’s and later they forgot us at the side. - No AC... - Bad Actitud from the stewardess. - 1:30 waiting for my baggage. - Incomplete luggage."

Pros: "Everyone"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was chaotic, but fast."
Cons: "The cost for checking my one oversized bag was literally robbery for the fee."

Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"

Pros: "The pilot was a hottie"

Pros: "Everything- each employee i encountered were friendly"
Cons: "I never like flying- so just being in the air"

Pros: "It was a smooth ride all the way around."
Cons: "High price of food. Have to have credit cards to purchase food or drink."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everyone was so nice! Liked having my puppy being able to ride in cabin with me."

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

Cons: "Delay, delay and more delay"

Pros: "The food options"
Cons: "the employees at the gate desk"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Easy check in ! So glad I could print my boarding pass! I couldn't print it at home. Nice staff."
Cons: "The lady screaming constantly at security! Good grief! Gate 77 she was an employee. It rang out across all the gates. Felt like cattle being herded to slaughter. Everyone else was very courteous."

Cons: "All"

Pros: "No delays"

Cons: "Delayed, poor service"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

Pros: "From boarding to landing to eveytjing3!! Top 3 fkughta of my life and I've flown over 65 times"

Pros: "On the outbound seat I was able to purchase a big seat up front. Nice wide comfortable seat up front for an extra $40. Not so lucky on the return. Setting in the regular seat offered plenty of legroom, but not much padding and don't recline."
Cons: "After paying $50 for a checked bag each way it really wasn't a bargain! Snacks are expensive and not allowed to put my backpack in the overhead bin, had to be at my feet."

Cons: "Exorbitant orices for checked luggage, no complimentary snacks/drinks, stewards sub-par"

Cons: "Tight fit paid too much for baggage and the flatulent person next to me."

Pros: "The staff was super friendly and professional. Easily approachable and informative. The plane was clean and welcoming."

Cons: "too many rules and regulations to remember in order to avoid paying exorbitant fees. They seemed to allow the 1 personal item carry on to be larger than their stated size but I was not willing to gamble and therefore could not even take a backpack on board."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Raise ticket price and don't charge for first suitcase"

Pros: "I liked that the prices for tickets were very affordable."
Cons: "I hated that upon arriving to airport to check in with my one small carry on bag, I had to pay $100 to take the bag with me on the plane. The ticket was only $89 and they charged me $100 for the small carry on bag. how is that logical? I could maybe understand charging $50 since they need to make all this extra money I guess, but charging more than the ticket is just absurd and not logical. This left a very bad taste in my mouth and I will not use them ever again. I feel fooled by them cause there were no messages or warnings about the cost of carry one. Very disappointed"

Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All gw"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "the was cancelled"

Pros: "I like their no nonsense about bags."
Cons: "they force us register."

Cons: "Narrow seats"

Pros: "Exit row seat"
Cons: "Almost everything else"

Cons: "All drinks were $6"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "cancelled flight and not enough customer service to deal with people"

Pros: "The price of the ticket or fare"
Cons: "Unable to pay for my bank online. Then had to pay a higher fee at the airport"

Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
