This is one of the better domestic carriers. I seem to always get a little more customer service. They are easy to do business with.

No individual TV screens. So you must have a device like an iPad or a phone or a laptop to connect to their media service. Movie selection was mediocre at best. A lot of useless programming in my opinion. Also had a first, was asked to put my mask on between sips of a drink. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that! We ate out every meal for a week straight and no one asked us wants to mask up between bites or sips. Nor did other Alaska flights ask us to mask up between sips. Thought it was pretty ridiculous.

Flight attendant in first class could be more friendly .. she looked annoyed throughout the flight and didn’t seem like she wanted to be. Need work in the customer service department. Same for my outbound flight. Otherwise the flight was on time and got to where I needed to go.

The food definitely could be better the flight attendant nicer, then Lisbon to Paris the had the nerves to charge for snacks. Lisbon customers service at the airport for the most part terrible, upiddy, rude,. I waited at lease 2 or more in custom lane trying to get throught security, miss my flight to Paris it was hot, to cheap to give customers AC while you wait in long lines. The worst experience avoid Lison Portugal, they charge for a rapid covid test 275.00 when I had a CDC shot record I've had both my shots rip off. And lost my luggage.

Charcuterie box was great and priced right. Staff was professional and helpful. App and communication before the flight helped make logistics easy.

Pros: "Fast, efficient, comfortable."
Pros: "Ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Easy to board, fast arrival"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "First class in an airplane this size is a bit limited (especially legroom) when in the first row."
Cons: "Less people on the plane, the social distance is NOT followed inside the plane."
Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines!"
Pros: "crew was great and the landing was like a paper airplane!!!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Organización y rapidez"
Cons: "Un cafe"
Pros: "Great crew and in-flight movies. Really nice airline."
Pros: "yes"
Pros: "Nothing because there was no social distancing. I did not think that airlines were allowed to completely fill flights and I had no choice once I was boarded."
Cons: "Please observe social distancing and DO NOT book completely full flights where seats can’t be left open. Irresponsible and stupid."
Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "Lost baggage in Kathmundu"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "High price for mediocre seat"
Pros: "The communication was impeccable. The flight was smooth and efficient. Everything about this experience, from booking it, to getting home was great."
Cons: "Nothing about thus experience was bad. It was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Pilots were 50 mins late"
Pros: "good food and good movie selection."
Pros: "Great crew, a lot of space in the aircraft"
Cons: "More entertainment"
Pros: "I loved how accommodating the crew was for having a late departure."
Cons: "Maybe update the passengers as you find out the plane will be later than expected"
Cons: "Premium charges to change seat First checked is $30"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The crew did it’s best but there was 2 hours delay due to issues at San Francisco airport."
Pros: "Crew did a great job with full, delayed flight. Alaska kept delay under control."
Pros: "After the purchase, Alaska is using Virgin planes, which are very nice - comfy, well appointed, and with the fun lighting."
Cons: "This is the second time in 3 flights with Alaska that they’ve bumped my seat at boarding time from a nice aisle near the front to a window near the restrooms. I’d gladly have volunteered if asked, but they didn’t ask. This most recent flight, the beverage service was extremely slow - it took nearly an hour for them to get down to my relocated seat. By then, it was nearly time to land, so I barely had time to finish. I’ve noticed the cups are smaller now as well. I usually fly rather than drive for the holidays, I think I’m done with flying."
Pros: "The plane was on-time. Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were very helpful. They helped passengers get to their seats, find places for their luggage. Entertainment options were good. Bags arrived within a reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more food options or at least stock a few more of the ones they have. The fruit and cheese tray sells out early making it a long flight without real food. I don’t consider chips and cookies lunch food."
Pros: "Very faster arrived."
Cons: "No meals."
Pros: "Excellent take off and landing."
Cons: "They had ressigned seats and put me in the middle of a full row, in front of the emergency exit, so the seat would not recline. The head rest was made for a tall man, and its position made me lean forward until my neck hurt. The movie selections were good, but the earphone jack didn't work well enough to hear the dialog. They let me move to another seat and the earphones didn't work there either. After trying two different earphones they concluded the jack was bad. Also the seats were smaller and there was less leg room than the Alaska flight going out."
Pros: "Crews and service are nice"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 5 hours. My all schedule had to be changed. I had to wait at Newark airport for 6 hours with my two little children. I want denied board compensation. Alaska has to fix it. I am very upset about this flight."
Pros: "Liked the seats. Liked the service. The food on my previous flight HX60 was better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Like I said, ordinary flight."
Cons: "I was forced to check my bag Right before boarding the plane. And then when I landed my back was lost. Let me also add that I do you like Alaska air and I am a member however I may think twice before booking again with them."
Pros: "The food order concept"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks, despite the long fligjt"
Pros: "It was excellent. They even waived the baggage fee!"
Cons: "Nil"
Cons: "We have been sitting in the plane after landing one hour ,because no gate available"
Pros: "My chair was broken the entire plane and there was no where to move me to. I was uncomfortable the entire flight"
Cons: "Update your planes"
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Cons: "There was no way to change journey date, excepting by additionally paying almost twice the fare amount as change fee plus difference in fares between travel dates. So was forced to miss the flight and forfeit fare amount."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Wasn’t given the opportunity to choose my seat and was put in last row."
Cons: "1st, promised to email a $100 travel voucher for an inconvenience in the reservation, but never did! 2nd, signage misguided us to take train to wrong terminal in airport, causing us to miss flight! 3rd, successfully changed first leg of our flight, but gave us a connection that was impossible to make! (20 minutes, but they "forgot" we had to go through customs!) 4th, double-charged us for our bags for second leg of flight! 5th, said they could do nothing about the impossible second leg of flight, claiming that their partner airline (Virgin) should resolve it, and Virgin then said the same thing and sent us back to Alaska! 6th, I discovered that Alaska reps wrote lies in the notes in the computer to try and cover their back! 7th, meanwhile, between the two companies, they wasted so much time that the next flight passed and we had to wait until next day for a flight! 8th, were not willing to cover a hotel, leaving us to sleep in airport! We are currently in airport still waiting for flight, so this sad testimony to Alaska Air may still get even worse! We'll see."
Pros: "Team very nice and polite."
Cons: "All the airplanes should have screens"
Pros: "My girlfriend and I had another 6 hours to bond on our drive home from Medford to San Francisco. And I got home way earlier than I would have if we flew."
Cons: "Because our flight from Medford to Portland was cancelled without notice, I never boarded a plane on Sunday. I rented a car and drove back instead. The cost is almost a wash with what Alaska is reimbursing me, but we'll see what I get refunded since their customer care department is closed on Sundays."
Cons: "Economy is always cramped, not just an Alaska comment. My computer almost got destroyed because the guy in front leaned his seat back"
Cons: "My emotional therapy dog of 7 pounds got part of her paw ripped off on an airport escalator. Though she was bleeding profusely all over me, I was not allowed to use the first aid kit to bandage her. I had to bring her to an emergency vet upon landing in Minneapolis"

Great flight attendants and overall experience. Will definitely continue to choose Hawaiian airlines for future trips to the islands!

Pros: "Friendly onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding and Departure was delayed without explanation. But not a big deal."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane had no fuel so we had to wait 2 hours For it to refuel elsewhere. Then the crew ran overtime so we had to wait 3.5 hours for a new crew. From exactly where the plane had refuelled"
Pros: "Friendly staff and excellent service"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, great service"
Pros: "Nice touch to have a blanket and pillow placed on each seat for our red eye flight from Honolulu to SF."
Cons: "Couldn’t select our seats online when checking in. Had to wait in a long line at the gate to get our seat assignments from the gate agent."
Cons: "I don’t like how they brought a snack cart thru where you could buy things, making it appear like it was the ONLY option. However, shortly after that, they gave everyone a free sandwich, bag of chips and drinks.... was pissed I spent $14 on snacks that I didn’t need to. Also, the flight originally was scheduled to leave Kauai at 1:45 and somewhere along the line it got changed to 1:15 but I didn’t know that somehow... glad we made it on time... Did not like how you had to have your own device in order to have movies or entertainment... pretty lame. This airline has so much potential! It was just little things that could have been much better"
Cons: "The food really sucked. And what I didn’t like was that if you buy through Kayak you don’t get to pick seats so I was thrown in a middle seat when I requested aisle or window. It was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment and seats"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was slow."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, so was check in agent."
Cons: "What would have been a great flight experience was marred by having to wait close to1 hour for bags to arrive...longer than flight time. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "First class! Never done it before but was pretty amazing. The extra comfort are great too"
Cons: "The food options were severely limited; NO vegetarian/vegan options."
Pros: "i will fill Hawaiian again"
Cons: "Seat assignment available only at the gate despite online check in 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "Non stop very good"
Cons: "Served no vegetarian lunch just chicken"
Pros: "I love the energy of Hawaiian Airlines I truly feel the Aloha"
Cons: "My bag was lost ~ that's frustrating. This is an aspect of my travel, but overall my flight & experience was groovy."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Why have video monitors if you aren't going to offer TV at no cost??? There was no option for live TV and to view previous episodes of a series, there was a charge. Other airlines offer some sort of free option. This is important to me. In the future, I will use a different airline that offers free in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I loved my experience with HA. The flight attendants and airport staff are so friendly and welcoming. The Hawaiian music and informative video are lovely touches. 1) I do NOT appreciate the $25 charge for luggage. Southwest does not charge for checked bags, and they are thriving. I think it's greedy to charge for luggage. 2) I wish they'd offer a meatless option when serving meals. So many people are plant-based now and I wish HA offered that to patrons. 3) Movies and TV in-flight should be free, as in...gratis. Other carriers offer free in-flight entertainment and HA should not charge. 4) The planes are nice, the crew is FABULOUS; truly a standout in the industry. They have that beautiful Aloha spirit."
Pros: "Fantastic attendants, clean, overal A+"
Cons: "Major delayed flight and only Compensation was free promo code for shitty entertainment app which doesn’t even work. Had a family emergency and needed to make a connecting flight which I missed and the flight attendant completed ignored my request to assist getting off the plane as fast as possible. My crew assistance button was on for over an hour and they completely ignore you."
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new (an A321 Neo), the seats were comfortable, and the crew was great."
Cons: "My wife and I had our seats changed by the airline after we had already made seat assignments, so we were not together on either of the round trip flight to Kauai from Los Angeles. Flights were both full so no way to change seats once at the airport. Aircraft did not change from when we booked our flight and made seat assignments, to the day of the flights. The food served was okay, but I don't eat carbos and all the food served was full of carbos. I choose to not utilize a smart phone, or other electronic devices, and the plane had no entertainment services if you don't have a smart phone or pad."
Pros: "The incoming flight was a bit late, but the crew wasted NO time getting the next passengers onboard. They were extremely efficient and I was impressed."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It just a quick flight from Kihue to Honolulu so you can’t expect much. You go up, you come down. Not much time for comfort or for. At least we got juice."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Hawaiian Airlines changed our seats both to and from Lihu'e. My wife and I were traveling with another couple. We booked our flights together and chose our seats so we could sit together. On both flights we were separated. Why give the purchaser an option to pick seats if the airlines changes them with no warning? Also, the in-flight entertainment was non-existent."
Cons: "When we knew that we were going to miss our flight because of the slide by Honale,i we tried to contact someone about changing our flight time for over 3 hours and never got to talk to anyone. So we had to book with another airline and had to spend an extra night in a very expensive motel. This was a very frustrating experience and very stressful. We are not very happy with Hawaiian Airlines customer service."
Pros: "Equipment was clean and comfortable. Flight crew was extremely pleasant and willing to work the cabin price was very competitive"
Cons: "Airport terminal inLihue needs upgrades and more seating."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane showed up 2 1/2 hours late. Seats in terminal were very uncomfortable and staff had no clue what was going on. They had 3 flights trying to leave from same gate at same time. Plane seats were also very uncomfortable. Once plane was boarded and on way pilot came on and blamed the delay on maintenance issues and weather. Airline delay caused 2 hour delay getting our rental car. We didn't get to our lodging until midnight and should have been there by 7 pm."
Pros: "No food for Vegetarians have to starve for six to 7 hours flight ( Two people-2 Travellers)"
Cons: "No vegetarian food"
Pros: "I had a good flight"
Cons: "It was really cold"
Pros: "In flight meal during dinner. Meal was just ok but it was nice to get some food. Got to sleep most of the way thankfully because the cabin lights were dimmed a bit."
Cons: "Credit card offer was announced on the PA system about 45 minutes before landing. Felt like I was being sold something and it woke me up."
Cons: "They destroyed us a new samsonite suitcase"
Pros: "Plane was fine once boarded"
Cons: "Seemed like workers didn't know what they exactly where doing got told several different things by different employees . They also had people doing some what seemened to be really Unnecessary stuff."
Pros: "Food was good, but because of the hour and a half waiting on the plane to take off, we got no snack."
Cons: "We were seated in a row where we had to pull up the entertainment panel from the right side of our seat leg area. The steward seemed frustrated with us for not knowing how to work it. I never could raise mine because it did not work whatever I tried and was afraid to ask for help because of how my husband had been treated. Also we had never used the tray tables from the right arm rest before and needed help to get those up as well."
Pros: "Very nice people and they didn't hassle us about carry on bags like the other inter-island airlines"
Cons: "Staff wan not friendly Plane was not clean Food was plain First time ever on Hawaiian airlines and unless it's the only flight avail I prob will not choose Hawaiian airlines again"
Pros: "it was cool to get a read meal during the flight"
Cons: "- The seats were very worn and i could feel the reading material in the pocket behind me. There was no padding on the lower back of the seat. - The airline moved the flight up by 25 minutes. Being late is one thing, but if we didn't arrive early, the plane would have left without us. Moving the flight time up as late as they did is just asking for people to be left behind. - THEY PLAYED A REALLY ANNOYING VIDEO AT THE END OF THE FLIGHT AT VERY HIGH VOLUME OVER THE PA AT 10PM. THIS WAS VERY RUDE, AND THE SAME VIDEO WAS PLAYED AT THE BEGINNING OF FLIGHT. IT WAS NOT AT ALL ENTERTAINING, AND SHOULD BE ELIMINATED FROM THE FLIGHT."
Cons: "We bought the tickets (2) together but when was the time to check in and select our seats there were no seats next to each other. This is the first time I see this!!! We had to pay extra $160 to upgrade and get two seats next to each other."
Cons: "We had a 3 hours delay and no one could explain what was going on"
Pros: "I enjoyed the food service."
Cons: "The plane landed late and then we drove around the tarmac for an hour! This was frustrating"
Pros: "I had wheelchair service & the staff was very good."
Cons: "One of our two checked bags did not arrive. After many problems we were finally told it would be delivered to our home between 10 & 11 p.m. It did not happen & I kept phoning the 2 numbers we had, no one ever answered. There were 10 of us celebrating our 50th Anniversary. AT 2.30 am I finally went to bed pretty upset It was left at my door at 5.30 a.m the next day. Poor communications after a wonderful celebration in Hawaii."
Pros: "Friendly agents fixed seating issue when wife and I were seated separately."
Cons: "Charge for checked bag ($25 each way). Charge for snacks, bottled water, & beer. Charge for entertainment ($8 for unlimited TV or one movie). After charges, nearly $100 more expensive than advertised price for round trip ticket."
Pros: "My wife recently had bypass surgery and Hawaii Airlines took exceptional care of us. They went that extra mile. Really appreciated them."
Pros: "The fold-able headrests that allow you to fall asleep."
Cons: "Arrived late due to an accident on the road. In Kauai, there is some kind of policy where they shut down the road for 3 hours if there's a bad accident. There's only one road to the airport from the north to the south shore. We were stuck due to this and therefore barely made it on time. We tried to explain this to the staff and asked if they could get us through quicker or check us in so we wouldn't miss the flight, and they just said we were out of luck. Weren't helpful at all. After having to scan our bags a second time by the airline (after TSA), we were dead last in line, and were told we lost our seats because we didn't check in on time. Therefore we were seated apart, and I was put further back in the plane very close to the pregnant woman with gas and the babies who screamed the entire flight. I had a window seat originally and lost it due to no fault of my own. Someone else was also sitting in my newly assigned seat and when I asked the staff to help us sort it out, they actually asked me to move since he was with his wife. After getting on the plane, we were forced to check our bags that we just got on with and it was a major hold up for everyone trying to get seated. Then, after landing, exhausted, and ready to go home, we had to wait for the bags to come out of the checked baggage claim area. We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes to get our bags because they were dead last and there was some issue with the conveyor belt. This is really poor planning on their part and made the trip even more unenjoyable. To top it off, my girlfriend left her phone on the plane and it was turned in to the staff. When we drove an hour back to get it the next day we were able, we were turned away because they have some new and separate office that is only open during obscure hours that the staff weren't even aware of. We are still trying to figure out how to get the phone back and have called several numbers telling us to call other numbers. It shouldn't be this difficult. I know the phone is in there somewhere. Lastly, food was gross. Don't think airlines will ever get this right. It'd be better to just serve quality mixed greens salads as you don't have to microwave them and they'd be fresh."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, and the rest of the experience felt like it was designed around us being as comfortable and happy as possible."
Cons: "My sister and I were not assigned seats on our boarding passes. There was another gentleman there with us who also didn't have an assigned seat on his boarding pass. We were all waiting at the gate for half an hour but there were no Hawaiian Airline employees to help us. They started boarding people on the flight and we were just standing there at the gate with nobody to help us. Finally I ran over to the adjacent gate that was also run by Hawaiian and asked if they could help. Initially they told me to go back to the gate but I expressed my concern that our flight was already boarding and I needed a seat so they finally helped. The gentleman tried doing the same thing but came back saying "They yelled at me and told me to come back to this gate". This is so rude, unprofessional and disorganized. It certainly left me with a bad impression of Hawaiian Airlines, which is too bad because I will be traveling to Hawaii quite a bit this year."
Cons: "The security guard made me go through security twice and then pointed me in the wrong direction to the gate and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "Once on the plane the seats were comfortable and the meal was good. Nice to get a meal for no extra charge."
Cons: "Flight out Airline gave me a standard seat although paid for extra room. I have a bad back so needed the room to sit forward in my seat. The row in front of me was extra room and the family sitting there said had booked their reservation the day before the flight. Same thing happened on return flight but I was smart enough to call ahead and fix. but got bounced around on the phone to 3 people including tech support to confirm seats. Bery frustrating. Boarded us 30 minutes late, no one knew what row was called as could not hear the announcements. People were being sent to the back of the line. Complete chaos. Then the unprofessional gate crew told about 200 of us that the captain wanted to leave and the door would close in one minute so hurry up. Not a fan of the airline."
Pros: "Staff was amazing and the flight reminded me of "the old days" lol. ezceptional.in flight service and comfort"

I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received.

The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience.

Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again.

Pros: "Very friendly thank you!"
Cons: "The wifi login experience could be improved. I purchased wifi as a guest when I had an account and had to spend extra time chatting with an agent to get it resolved. They were very helpful but having the option to login to my account at the start would be ideal!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."
Pros: "Crew was polite and very helpful."
Cons: "It would have been great to reiterate to passengers to remain seated when deplaning, until the passenger in the row ahead were approximately 6 Ft away."
Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"
Cons: "Smelled like poop the entire flight. Actual poop in the lavatory."
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing!"
Cons: "Not a thing! It was perfect"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"
Cons: "More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delta always delivers!"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "great crew"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"
Cons: "We were delayed like crazy."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "We took off and landed early. The crew was wonderful and the snacks were exactly what I needed."
Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"

Compared to other US airlines, American is the worst. The planes are tight. Seats are uncomfortable and there was no option to buy food on a 6 hour flight. Also the free wifi didn’t work.

Cons: "1ST CLASS IS WAY OVERRATED Uncomfortable seats, very rude flight attendants they should not be in the service/hospitality industry!"
Pros: "Bast trips!!"
Cons: "Evriting is good!!!"
Cons: "Enforcement of federal rules requiring children two and over too wear a mask. Flight attendant did not believe it was her responsibility to ask the age of the child sitting next to us, sneezing and coughing."
Pros: "The crew.was so rude, even from the check in process"
Cons: "Everything,"
Cons: "Sick joke of an airline they treat you like cattle even in first class if you can even call it that. It’s more like premium economy and the staff is not friendly they act like they are put out when you ask for anything."
Pros: "Crew and service was solid given the covid restrictions."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for over an hour we had to change planes. Notice that our aircraft isn’t working properly before you board it would be helpful so we aren’t 2 hours behind schedule having to sit on a hot airplane during covid"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Pros: "Again the flight did not happen since my flight from Munich to Dallas was cancelled without informing me why and so on."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating for seats due to virus."
Cons: "Delays could've been prevented or let passengers know, instead of being on the plane for 2 hours without moving."
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off, so punctuality could have been a little better"
Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Provide coffee at least"
Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Slight delay in leaving"
Cons: "Baggage claim took 30-45 minutes after deplaning"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "I have an injury so I paid extra for 'extra leg room" but there's a wall between economy and business class so very little legroom. My leg was hurting a lot and the flight attendants had to find me a different seat because I could not stay there for 5 hours. I wouldn't have paid extra for this seat."
Cons: "4 hour delay for no reason! I’m never flying with American Airlines again!"
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: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."
Cons: "salt free option for snacks; flight could have not been delayed but that’s not the flight crew’s fault. winds at sfo caused us to delay our takeoff"
Cons: "if the crew/flight wasn’t filled with racist tendencies that forced a black man and his partner to take a new flight because his “tone” wasn’t to their liking when he responded to accidentally being the wrong seat, costing us 90 minutes at least of delays because they deplaned us all when all."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you."
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "That you have to pay extra for entertainment, that you have to have your own device, and that the food was mediocre"
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable. On time departure, early arrival. Gate crews not ready in SF"
Cons: "Entertainment options good, but require download of a proprietary app. Quit trying to sell us credit cards! Should get more than a pack of cookies for a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Cons: "If you get to the airport too early and there aren't any American Airlines flight before yours you have to wait for the crew to get there to open the counter and check you in. Just a couple pounds over the 50lbs and you get screwed with a $100 fee. There is very little AC in the airport and very few outlets so if you have to wait for a flight make sure to charge your devices prior to getting to the airport. WiFi on this an all other American Airlines flights I've recently taken has been useless - almost impossible to use."
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendants were very patient and efficient. Flight was very smooth and surprisingly not overcrowded. For the first time, in a long time, when getting off of the plane it was very organized and not everyone rushing and pushing to get off. Everyone followed suit and did row by row, and no one pushing or shoving which is always nice."
Cons: "The only this I would suggest is that on a longer flight you should offer better deals on food/snacks."
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No arm room when someone the size of an NFL player sits next to you and falls asleep with their arms relaxing into your space. Then they sleep open-mouthed with bad breath. I paid extra for that?"
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."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "The crew was able to seat my husband and I together at the last minute as my husband has mobility issures"
Cons: "The crew seemed like they could care less about the passengers. Choice of either one snack bag of pretzels or a biscotti ~ very minimal. No headphones were offered for the movies."
Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and competent and obbiously embarrased by whoever in operations screwed this flight up good."
Cons: "Pleane departed two hours and thirty minutes after original schedule because of operational and equipment problems. Plane wasn't even in Philadelphia unti 6:00 pm. The guy at boarding (unlike the boarding in SFO) called way too many groupss individually, First Class, Diamond, Premium, Gold, Priority. This led to many people being refused boarding and told to wait. In SF they simply call first class and then all the rest or the Aadvantage members together before the land boarding. Much faster and more efficeint. Even though the flight was full there less than 12 people in the Diamond, Premium, whatever classes. And the guy taking the boarding passes was a jerk. He actuallly seemed to take pleasure in telling people they couldn't board. Might not ever fly AA again. At least never from Philadelfphia."
Cons: "Due to the delay which caused us to miss our connection we had to get a hotel, which we had to pay for. It also caused me to miss work the following day."

Everything was well from checking to landing. Only thing would be the entertainment. A lot of outdated Tv shows and movies.

I do not like that United Airlines charges you an extra $100 to get seats together. Our family of five was separated on every flight and it was really hard with an eight year old. Will definitely be flying a different airline

Pros: "Crew was amazing very clean"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. With a flight over three hours I would have thought there would be seatback mini-screens at least with a few movies to choose from. Also there was only one cart serving drinks which took forever because we had a seat towards the back and because it took so long we only had the one drink. It was so full of ice that really there was hardly any fluid and the ice pieces were too large to even chew them up. I felt very dehydrated during the flight. Since we can't bring our own water I feel like more should be provided."
Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."
Pros: "The crew were friendly & efficient, the flights were on time, & the gate staff kept us well informed of any changes."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Pros: "Very friendly crew that empathized with the plight of the passengers on board. The poor experiences throughout the journey could have been avoided if United changed it's policies and processes to become more customer focused."
Cons: "So many small things add up to an overall poor experience on a flight, and it doesn't seem like United understands this. 1) WiFI was down. 2) Entertainment screens for several of the passengers on board were not working. The poor lady next to me had a broken screen, and combined with the broken WiFi, she literally just sat in her seat looking forward for several hours (after she finished the podcasts on her phone). 3) For a 5-6 hour flight, food (more than just snacks) were available for only about half the passengers on board. Apparently its an intentional policy of United to only have food available for a portion of the passengers. It wasn't even possible to purchase it if I wanted to because by the time the crew got to me, they were all out. 4) Baggage space under the seat varies wildly depending on your seat. For some reason, the aisle seat has the smallest space I have ever seen in my life (about the size of a shoe box). It was the first flight I have ever been on where I was literally not able to fit a small backpack underneath my seat."
Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"
Cons: "2 hr layover-got off plane and walked to new terminal-went through carry on bag and person security scans and checks. At the gate 30 mins before flight, boarding started. Directed to go to 1of3 stand up desks located in the open away from the gate and boarding lines. Desks were attended by one United employee each. All 3 of us;wife, husband, child passports, boarding passes were checked, and then we were told to get in line to board the plane. About one minute after getting in line, wife name was called over the boarding desk loud speaker to see the boarding desk attendant. At the boarding desk, the boarding desk attendant instructed wife to go back to one of the open area desks to have documents checked again. The attendant then instructed wife that her and her bag would need to go through a secondary search before wife would be alloyed to board the plane. Wife was then accompanied by open area desk attendant and walked down terminal 8 gates to private type room where personnel quickly checked contents of single carry on bag focusing on phone and computer. Wife then directed to go ahead and go back to gate to board plane. Wife quickly walked to gate and met husband and child to present passports and boarding passes. At this time the wife and child began being verbally rushed by a male united employee to hurry up down the pedway, and told the plane needed to leave so hurry up. Needless so say wife, husband and child were the few last guests to be seated. Well, when trying to get seated, all the overhead space had been taken in the area around the assigned seats. When husband briefly described the secondary search situation and thus the current predicament with no space in the overhead for carry on, the attendant asked husband to follow attendant to front of plane with your bag in order to stow there. After speaking with some other attendants, space was made available in an overhead compartment near wife, husband and child seat. ***Please be aware when flying united.... While waiting in the boarding line after multiple security checks where you and your carryon have been scanned and more than one document check has been done, you may to be asked to take a walk to go through yet another bag check, and then be rushed to board a plane that needs to leave, and then find no room for your carry on, and then be asked to put your carry on in a remote location and deal with getting to it and back to your seat for the next 11 hrs if you want to access the contents of your carry on."
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Cons: "we received email for the take off schedule changed to one hour early. End up when we arrived LAX and it got delayed 1 hr for take off due to air traffic. So when we arrived at SF, originally we only have 50 mins to catch on the next route to Osaka. There was no gate # provided on our boarding pass and we have to look for the international terminal for boarding. Due to first delay in SF, the time was so tight and the international terminal was so far away, we had to run like HELL and we almost suffered from heart attack. We barely made it and there was no one to help ever. we had to figure out on our own. This was very bad experience and was not acceptable with such poor arrangement."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight."
Cons: "— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options."
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Pros: "overall very pleasant and relaxing food good able to sleep due to luckily extra space! very pleased"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Chief flight attendant was nice and attentive."
Cons: "Our section of the plane was very warm. When we mentioned it to one of the attendants, she pointed to the overhead vents and told us to use them. (We already knew this and had them open all the way!) Then the chief flight attendant came by and she was VERY responsive and went to tell the pilots. It got a little better but still stayed on the warm side the rest of the way. Your boarding process makes no sense and does nothing to get passengers settled faster. After priority seating is done, let the people in the BACK of the plane board first, then the middle section passengers, then the Eco Plus passengers."
Pros: "We had an aisle each! The staff were friendly too."
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our international connection. Flight attendants did not care, did not attempt to get us out faster, or put on a different flight. Asked for an announcement to be made on board or to be moved to seats closer to the front so we could get off the plane quicker, did not happen. Offboarded and sprinted across the airport for our international connection and was notified by gate attendents that the gate closed five minutes ago and that they could not let us on the plane. Meanwhile, the plane sat there for an additional 30 minutes while it fueled and waited for release from air traffic control. There were six travelers total stuck there in San Fran at that gate, all of us begging to be let on the plane to Beijing, the last one for over 24 hours. Zero compassion from staff at the the airline gate. They did not care about us and did not care about leaving their travelers stranded. Our total travel was Denver to Bangkok, 26 hours of travel including layovers in San Fran and Beijing. In San Fran (after missing the gate connection), United rerouted us through Haiwaii and the customer service agent that did this reroute did not finish the reroute to our final destination. We got to Haiwaii and were stranded again, at the United service desk for four hours having to once again provide documentation of our initial travel plans to Bangkok, having them build a new itinerary to our final destination. Overall, 20 additional travel hours have been added to our itinerary, almost double our initial travel time. We have had to call and cancel pre-arranged bookings in Thailand as we are now missing two full days off our trip. I am absolutely disappointed and heart broken as I write this still stuck in the Beijing airport waiting another six hours to connect to Bangkok. My fiancé and I were traveling to Thailand to get married and have received no compassion from anyone at this airline to try and get us there. I fly United for work quite frequently and have never experienced such horrendous service and lack of basic human compassion. I am flat out disgusted by United and will not be using them again, for personal travel or work related trips, because of this horrendous experience."
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "At boarding there were delays which the boarding personnel updated as they had information. After boarding flight crew passed out water while we waited on the tarmac for hours while a maintenance issue was reviewed. Safety protocols that had a engine issue looked at on the ground prior to putting us in the air. Curry chicken was good."
Cons: "Several issues that caused this flight to be late. Part of the issue was the plane was not available to be in the gate on time. The longest delay was on the tarmac for over 2 hours as an engine was analyzed. Does this suggest need for more regular maintenance? I don't know. Given the delays I think United could have done more in recognition of the delay to its customers on the flight such as not charging for some of the services they normally charge for like wifi access and such. As it was I was delayed on both legs of my trip by a minimum of an hour. United should do better."
Pros: "The male flight attendant who was in the rear respectfully listened to me."
Cons: "The United passenger agent that talked to me at the gate when the other one, who was scanning the boarding passes put me on the side because I could not board with two items was disrespectful. She used a discriminating tone and embarrassed me in front of other people. She made it sound as if it were a shame to purchase a cheap ticket. She was arguing with another passenger before helping me over the same subject, so when I tried to explain that the smallest backpack was almost empty and fit inside the other, she was impatient, upset ignored me and was already demanding my credit card with the bag tag in her hand rushing me. I paid extra $60.00 after I had paid $25,00 for the first bag when I could have put the flexible kipling inside the Jansport if she had listened to me. The flight delayed after I was unable to defend myself and paid an unfair feer."
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Pros: "Customer service was very professional even after dealing with MANY delayed customers."
Cons: "First leg delayed as was the flight getting there. Had to rebook flying all night on 3 flights with 2 children. My daughter saw that second original flight out of San Francisco was also delayed. We went back to customer service and got back on our original flight arriving home later than planned but if we hadn't of noticed it we would gave been 4 hours later getting in and transferring from 3 planes. Blamed on sf construnction...why would you 's hedule a flight into an area that is under construction. Huge delays of all planes really made me wonder what the heck united is doing. No confidence!"
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. New plane I think - no window shades, it's tinted windows that change colors! They came by many times to offer water, pick up trash. We even got ice cream for dessert! Also, I have a special meal which they brought correctly (have had airlines mess it up which is crummy on a long plane ride). Also, great in flight entertainment on the screens (no need to use personal devices), lots of recent movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them. Was also surprised to find guided meditations from Headspace which helped me get to sleep! Overall, loved it and would definitely fly again."
Cons: "My bag did not show up at my destination, but I think it will soon. I like that their automated system is sending updates every 6 hours and I can call anytime as well. Fingers crossed it turns up :)"
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Pros: "Really friendly staff, communicative, helpful. Gave good directions. Plenty of leg room on flight."
Cons: "Beyond the control of United, but LAX is a nightmare of an airport. Traffic control caused delays, airport staff more of a hindrance than helpful. Border control mumbling and barking orders at people like they're cattle. Not the best way to welcome tourists, but at least United Airlines crew made up for it with their smiles."
Pros: "The flight was not full, so we had extra space."
Cons: "First, UA flight attendant forgot to serve us (and few more sitting on the same area) lunch. By the time we asked why we are not served, we didn't have a choice, but to take whatever left. Second, we had about only 1 - 1 1/2 hours of in-flight entertainment available in Economy class out of 10 1/2 hour flight. Of course, entertainment was available for first, business and premier class. Why? Satellite problem supposedly. Third, ok. There was a entertainment on a big screen in the front. However, system on the armrest was not working. What's the point? My husband and I have been in long distance flight over 25 year with various airline companies, BUT THIS UNITED FLIGHT WAS ONE OF THE WORST FLIGHT EVER. When I booked this vacation, I chose Lufthansa on purpose as I know their quality of service and professionalism. I didn't notice that the return flight was a code share with UA. Only thing they can say was that they can provide us more mileage as a compensation if we write to UA on their website... We had a great vacation until were on this flight."
Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."
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: "The first plane had enough leg room"
Cons: "That the plane needed to be changed due to something being wrong with it. On our flight from cancun, Mexico to SFO we had to stop in Houston to change planes. One of the guys working at the security check point was very mean, raising his voice to people, grabbing their and also my stuff out of their hands, some of my stuff fell on the floor and got stuck in the rolling thingies. I hope I found all of it, not sure. I'm not sure how this happened, shouldn't planes be checked thoroughly before heading out!?!? This all is a big mess and very upsetting (literally just cried for 20 minutes). Sincerely, Sabrina Jungclaus S.jungclaus@gmail.com"
Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"
Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."
Pros: "These days we can all admit flying is not what it used to be before 9/11. It's still professional and curtious, but the awareness and appreciation of passengers has dwindled. Stewards and stewardesses go through the motions and do just what they need to do not more. The pilots got the plane to its destination well within the time sometimes even a half an hour early. But sometimes being that early means sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes which cut it close to missing my next flight. Flights used to offer blankets if passengers were cold. If the plane is not full they do allow passengers to move seats to be more comfortable. The complementary beverage is still always a nice touch but seconds aren't offered and cups are often taken before they're finished. It would be nice to see our country's airlines go back to a little more awareness and appreciation for one another, and work to improving their levels to above satisfactory. The flight was supposed to have entertainment viewable on personal devices but going through the app to select something was told this flight didn't have access. Overall it was satisfactory."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane. Blankets weren't offered. The food while it looked delicious needed to be warmed and the only option was coffee for warming it."
Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"
Cons: "I cannot believe United Airlines flies an 11-hour international flight and does not provide each seat with an individual television for entertainment. I fly quite frequently and EVERY other international flight has individual televisions. It made the experience long and horrible. I am a minimalist and travel with as few items as possible. So even though United offered me the ability to use my own device, I don't have one! Also, the instructions to download the app before take off was not clear. During the entire flight, I kept getting the message "no internet connection; unable to connect to satellite." So I couldn't even use my phone. Very annoying and I will never fly United for international flights again."
Cons: "Heavily delayed, kept getting later"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing! My flight was scheduled for takeoff at 8:15 pm on Wednesday.I boarded my flight on two different occasions only to be informed that there were mechanical issues.that first delayed & eventually cancelled my flight. I was kept waiting and inconvenienced until 5am, when I was finally offered an alternate 12noon flight later that day as well as a comped room at a nearby hotel. My time is very valuable & limited and because of this experience my itinerary was adversely affected. I will be hard pressed to ever fly United again. Michael Aponte- Very Disappointed!"
Cons: "Please read above comments"
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Pros: "The attendants were very kind, polite and efficient"
Cons: "1) Seats barely recline beyond 90 degrees. 2) person behind me had knees jamming against my seat the entire flight. 3) Food was unimpressive. was on British Airways a week before and it was great. 4) Paying for cocktails on a long haul flight is absurd. 5) Instructed to "download a ridiculous app" for entertainment. 6) I couldn't get WiFi in the airport to function!!! so was at a loss. I was traveling overseas for God's sake. IN a foreign country. 7) Outlet to plug my power sources for mobile devices into was not functioning."
