Pros: "The cabin crew on Alaska Air was great. Efficient, helpful, and even on holiday flights! The food selection was average."
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"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and so was the flight. No entertainment or food on short flights, that should be a N/A"

Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Cons: "Late flt"

Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."

Pros: "I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket from Costa Rica to Panama in order to comply with laws stating non-resident aliens must leave Costa Rica every 90 days for a period of at least three days. When it came time to return to Costa Rica, I understood that I had not purchased ANOTHER ticket to "prove" my intent to leave Costa Rica again three months in the future. I told the ticket agent I wishes to purchase a "fully refundable" ticket for a future flight, but she was (or professed to be) unable to assure me the ticket she was selling me was refundable. Upon return to Costa Rica, as before, immigration did not ask to see any such proof nor did they even ask my intentions. Isn't this called fraud? I did not need the ticket and, of course, in contacting Copa Airlines, I would have to return to Panama in order to even get a partial refund, which they won't guarantee. Not doing this again."

La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."

Cons: "HOW CAN YOU NOT OFFER COFFEE ON AN AM FLIGHT??? THAT's CRAZY!!!"

Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"

Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"

Pros: "Ha mejorado la comida que dan en económica, en especial par un vuelo tan corto. Las tripulaciones colombianas son más amigables y orientadas al servicio que las panameñas. Panameños: Wake Up!!"

Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."

Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline, they will over sell their tickets and then expect you to give yours away. Boarding was messy."

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: "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: "- 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: "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: "Not enough room!"

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

Cons: "Late."

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

Pros: "Traveling fast"
Cons: "To pricey"

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: "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."
