Cons: "All was great, wish the checked bag was $25 instead of $30"

Pros: "Super friendly staff, on time , Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient. First class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The airport terminal at KOA belongs in the stone age. It's not air conditioned. Its sound system is overwhelmed by ambient noise. We walk across the tarmac in the blazing sun and climb rickety ladders to board the plane. Hard wooden benches for seats while waiting. Too few schedules boards."
Pros: "The nicest flight attendants in a long time. In-flight entertainment options good."
Cons: "I prefer Delta’s snack options and overall generosity within the limits of today’s stripped down hospitality."
Pros: "Not much to say hear. I would expect better service since they aquired virgin America"
Cons: "Crew didn't have a friendly approach to passengers they all seemed rude Not enough food on board or even drinks. I asked for water and she made it seem an inconvenience. Barely any legroom. Also the passenger that was reassigned to the seat next to me was not happy as they would not help her switch seats with anyone as she had a need for assisted care."
Pros: "I was unable to catch my flight and I called and the lady kn the phone was not helpful and rather rude. Was unwilling to help me figure out a solution to changing my flight plans"
Cons: "was unable to catch my flight and I called and the lady on the phone was not helpful and rather rude. Was unwilling to help me figure out a solution to changing my flight plans"
Pros: "I paid for seat. Hainan airlines charged me, but told me was not successful. I spent a lot of time and energy on it."
Cons: "At Xian Xiangyang Airport, I was asked to provid a address. They did not know how which is street name and which is city name. I taught them. They scanned with my green card, however, their system could not recognize green card. I was forced to sign an agreement to take all responsibilities if I can not go abroad."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and professional"
Cons: "We had to make an emergency medical landing which is fine it had to be done. But then we had to wait a while for catering to come and bring us food. Most of us had already gotten off the plane to use the restrooms and get food. Then because the caterers took to long they cancelled the food order and told us they were having fingers out food vouchers. It was annoying g cause we had already gone and gotten food and spent our own money. Now everyone booked it off the plan to get food and we now waited another hour for people to come back. So altogether the plane was delayed 4 hours they could have just given us the food on the plane for free."
Pros: "The ground service"
Cons: "One Flight Attendant who continually made NO attempt to NOT hit passengers as she walked down the aisle. I don’t think she liked her job."
Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "3-4 hours flying and you just have cookies ? Coffee ? And the tablets to watch movies for real $30 bucks come on guys"
Cons: "The flights were fine, but I will never fly Alaska to Minneapolis and transfer to Iceland Air again. Transferring from the Main Terminal to the HumphRey Terminal was a huge, grossly unpleasant inconvenience. Fly direct, use a carrier that connects at the Humphrey terminal, but by all means do not connect with Iceland Air using Alaska in Minneapolis."
Cons: "The plane had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu because 2 of the 4 navigation systems were not operating correctly. We had 2 wait in Honolulu approx. 6hrs to catch a flight to Seattle. They gave me a $12 voucher for food but my dinner (only dinning in the terminal) cost me $20. Was forced to take an additional day of leave & had to make arrangements for my pets. Was only given (3) $600 vouchers for my 3 tickets."
Cons: "They charged for food and entertainment. Next they will charge for bathrooms and water."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seemed like a new plane so everything was slick and clean."
Cons: "I wished they had a savory option for snacks (not just cookies but pretzels as well)."
Pros: "Free Maitai on arrival, on time departure and landing, friendly crew, decent food. Big overhead bins also a plus."
Pros: "The baggage and check in went smoothly."
Cons: "The original flight was booked as a nonstop flight and was changed to add a stop in Seattle and then fly back to Oakland. It added additional time and inconvenience to our original booking."
Pros: "Multiple beverage services"
Cons: "Stuck next to a large person again that over flowed there seat into my seat"
Cons: "The food is just terrible and we sat in first class. There was an only one choice and if you're a vegetarian, forget it, you won't be eating. The choice was a chicken salad that had a fishy taste. Your choices are better if you purchase a meal."
Pros: "Was a nightmare at Seattle to board for Minneapolis. Was delayed, didn't call for boarding and crew looked annoyed the whole time. Not the type of service I expect for the price I pay."
Pros: "Free movies!"
Cons: "Not enough time to finish the movie"
Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."
Cons: "Only 1 flight attendant in first class for 16 passengers, as the other one disappeared most of the time, and when asked for help she actually refused, saying she was only helping coach class! Dinner service took almost 3 hours. Never asked if we wanted wine or another drink with dinner."
Cons: "I paid for my ticket full price through kayak but my ticket was apparently what the industry calls a non-revenue ticket meaning I was on the standby list and had to Hope people didn't come. I ended up getting the last seat on the plane and was in serious Jeopardy being left behind"
Pros: "Leg room! Snack options! Service! I never really leave reviews- one of the best flights I've been on"
Pros: "POG was available from the beverage cart. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "We were assigned two middle seats in different rows for a five hour flight! Flight attendants were rude. The bathrooms were a mess. Complimentary food for a five hour flight is a bag with nine, dime-sized pretzels."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and helpful. The flight left late but arrived at the destination early. I have flown Alaska for years and other than the food I have no complaints."
Cons: "The food choices are Chicken or Cheese and fruit. On a 6 hour flight the only free food is a very small package of pretzels. For people who do not eat chicken there is very limited food."
Pros: "Fast flight. Friendly crew. Switched me to a sooner flight so I wouldn't have to drive home real late."
Cons: "Wasn't too much to dislike. Was a very good flight."

Cons: "No free baggage, unclear coomunication about check in and choosing seats, was not offered my free drink."
Cons: "Only thing was we had to wait longer than 20 min for our luggage in mpls which was guarenteed. Will I get $25 gift card for future use. Will use AA again when I get the chance."
Cons: "They changed the departure gate 3 times and I missed my flight to MSP. I had to pay 600usd or a flight 13 hours later, spend the night in the airport and rearrange transport from MSP to my home in Duluth. I wonder if I could get reimbursed for the 600usd due to the irregularities in changing the departure gate so often; it caused me to miss the flight.."
Pros: "crew did there best to help with passenger on board that needed medical attention they handled the situation luckily a passenger was a nurse and was able to help them"
Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"
Pros: "Friendly staff and very helpful at getting our boarding passes and luggage checked."
Cons: "The need to clean their planes before letting passengers board. Food stuck on trays and spilled drink and food on seat. Don't bother using your own device (ie. ipad). There really isn't much to see without paying for it. No internet on this flight."
"1/2 late for no reason"
"Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!"
Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "Gate team at PHX departure was a bit short and delayed the flight by over 40 minutes while offloading passengers from the previous flight. Also boarded most of the flight before they boarded the Comfort+ area. If I would have known that, I would not have paid for the upgrade."
Pros: "Yes, turned out perfect"
Cons: "Awesome accomodations, delta really cares about your needs. Thank you!"
Pros: "On time and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were great. Cookie was good. Seat was comfy to sit in upright."
Cons: "Leg room was poor, flight was overcrowded, seatback wouldn't recline, there simply isn't enough width to the seats in the middle of each row. This should be a perk to balance the perk of a window on one side and extra leg room in the aisle on the other."
Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "no covid-19 precautions were taken. It was a packed airplane didn't feel comfortable"
Pros: "Plane was new and equipped"

Pros: "I had been travelling for 2 days with a bad back & everyone was so helpful with my situation."
Pros: "Crew was amazing once again. Friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Atlanta concourse and gates need more work for cleanliness! This is just respecting your customers safety and wellbeing. Unfortunately having customers not being respectful with how they leave the area they were sitting a mess can make your jobs that much more challenging. Trash cans are not far away!!!"

Cons: "No leg room on this plane"
Cons: "Loved it!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"

Cons: "I didn't flight because I was tested Covid-19 positive ! I am waiting for AeroMexico to contact me to get and flight back to Minneapolis !"

Cons: "This was a great short flight."
Pros: "Seat average for a small jet"
Cons: "The AC was not cool enough, but tolerable"

Cons: "No milk available."
Pros: "Not enough toom between rows of seats."
Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was jovial and very pleasant. Smiles all around. Flight attendant at the very beginning said, "Welcome to flight --- to Bahamas. . . just kidding." It made people chuckle."
Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "I fly regular this was an excellent flight"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and seemed genuinely nice. The seats felt a little narrow"
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Boarding on time and announcing changes to the bowrding schedule instead of leaving customers guessing."
Pros: "Crew was extremly helpful, friendly and happy."
Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Late pickup, then no gate at stopover causing is to miss our flight as we sat on the tarmac. Got on next flight, 5 hours later, the literal last row of the plane right in front of the bathroom, you know, those seats that don't recline? Travelling with a cranky two year old, made pains to select seats for maximum child comfort and it all flew out the window. Arrived at destination and sat, again, waiting for a gate. Signed up for sky miles previously based on good experiences, but this was one lane thing after another. Advice? Don't act like you're doing me a favor when asking people to check bags cause then it's "free"."
"Check-in was a nightmare. At least half the self-serve kiosks were out of printer paper so were out of service. It was chaos. No one was directing traffic, so you had to hope you were in the right line. We finally got to a kiosk and checked in, and printed one bag tag for checked baggage. We were in line to drop off the checked bag, and the lady working that station just walked away and didn’t come back. After we waited a bit, another person in line went to ask at the nearby counter if the bag check person was coming back, and she wasn’t, so we had to find a new line and wait all over again. Once we got our bag dropped off and our tickets, the rest was easy. The security line went quickly, and the terminal was clean and nice. Our flight was great and the flight crew was excellent. I think if someone had kept up with the kiosk printers, a lot of the check-in headaches and stress would have been solved."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "We were packed in during coronavirus. I am never flying American again. Profits over health"
Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"
Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."
Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Cons: "App continued to crash. Couldnt watch movies."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Crew (one member in particular) was rather short and rude to passengers who may have been unaware about the device holders on the back of seats. These are new for some. Use it as a teachable moment."
Cons: "5 hour delay including multiple gate changes, being pulled off the runway and poor communication"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Grabbed me a blanket. Did not mind the small plane."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."
Pros: "This is such a quick flight, and the staff made it quite easy."
Cons: "My in Flight Wi-Fi did not work. Not a huge deal, because it's such a quick flight, but it is a little Annoying, and may have just been a bad day for the system."
Pros: "On time, not completely full, good staff at gate & on plane"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "not much, on time, but that is a low standard of something to like"
Cons: "Crew attitude,"
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket (although I spent over $65 on cabs to and from the airport)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost two hours - I knew I was going to miss my connection before I even left my airport. They told me they could not put my family and myself in a hotel and that we would need to take another flight the next day that had ANOTHER layover."
Cons: "The desk people were aggressively unhelpful when I asked for advice on getting a jacket back that I had left my previous flight (less than an hour earlier). They treated me with derision and ridicule because my previous flight was with a different airline, an airline that is closely enough associated with American that they booked me on an American flight. It should have been possible to at least talk to someone that could address my situation but now I'm stuck with the likely loss of something important to me and a strong dislike of American airlines. I'm probably just salty because it happened yesterday though. I'll get over the jacket eventually and probably fly with American again. But I will always resent them."
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "Crew; snacks are okay, but could be better."
Cons: "Coffee is always burnt; overhead compartments too small; too little space for legs."
Pros: "Nothing. Still waiting on New Years to see if AA get us back to MSP"
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
Cons: "Made me check my carry-on because they claimed the bones were full and they weren't. Not even close."
Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
"They came around with snacks so many times they might as well have served a meal. They had a pretty limited selection of TV shows/movies compared to other airlines, and it played their COVID safety ads every. single. time. you started a new episode or show, even if you got disconnected partway through. I also had issues with the charger in my seat - it was loose and my phone would be charging on and off. However, it was a well-priced flight, comfortable, and staff was nice. No complaints on getting to my destination on time!"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "There were no phone chargers and no snacks."
Pros: "Typical flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "There wasn’t much for social distancing. Was kind of disappointed."
Pros: "The airline tried to keep us as comfortable as possible in the airport. The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Since we were in DC, I don't know why it took four hours to bring in another plane, since we were so close to major cities."
Pros: "It ended up being united not Lufthansa and they were delayed 45 minutes so they rerouted me through Munich which made me miss a free bus to my destination outside of Rome"
Cons: "More time in Chicago in case of a delay I only missed my flight by 5 minutes"
Pros: "efficient and communicative"
Cons: "Not necessarily United's problem, but I feel like the design of the seating could be more efficient. The 3 or 4 in a row seats can be super problematic if you have to use the bathroom and need to climb over a stranger to do it and they're asleep/3 times your size. Holding for 5 hours is not fun."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Very helpful to the best of their abilities."
Cons: "To start off with. Next time they change the gates, all passengers should get a email. Maybe an ounce it over loud speaker in airport. So we won't miss our flight. secondly. Our flight was stuck on msp runway for 1 hour n 45 minutes before we were able to pull in to a gate to get off. No open gat"
Pros: "Nonstop is the greatest."
Cons: "Out plane showed up late due to weather - understandable. We didn't have anyone to pilot the plane for over 5 hours - unacceptable. I was due to be home by 8PM CT on Sunday; didn't get home until 4AM Monday. Very poor job by United."
Pros: "Everything but the temperature"
Cons: "Too cold on plane. It's better than too hot, but it seemed like it was all or nothing."
Pros: "Respect and support"
Pros: "Standard beverage and small snack service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."
Pros: "The whole flight was fine. It was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In particular, the head rests are not high enough for me to use and are not adjustable."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was more than half empty and instead of allowing customers to move forward to the “premium” seats, the flight crew keep everyone all bunched up in the back of the plane. It would have been a nice customer service gesture to allow people to move forward. And, hey, maybe next time people would have bought those seats if they could have experienced them. Guess I should have felt lucky to remain on the plane and not get punched in the face..."
Pros: "Our flight home was Great. At kona airport the flight crew was Amazing, the captain even let my daughter set in the driver seat, which is something she will never forget."
Cons: "Downside there was no onboard t.v.s which makes 4 hours seem long."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "There were no positives to this flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. The crew stood at the airport gate for a good hour chatting with each other completely disregarding the fact they had a plane full of people around them waiting to board. They were drinking coffee taking selfies it was ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Wi-Fi dropped for an extended period of time during the flight. Seat was not comfortable."
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Cons: "The plane had mechanical issues. they flew the plane that had mechanical issues to a Honolulu. spent eight hours in a Honolulu. had to catch a redeye to San Francisco. 12 hour layover caused us to have to pay for a rental car to get to our final destination Of Reno. I would hope that there would be some sort of compensation."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."
Cons: "You cannot check in online so you have to wait in line for an agent to check you in. The fare only allows you a middle seat. There is really not much good about this low fare. I'd rather take a low cost airline then get treated like you get treated on the basic economy fare."
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That was the part I liked."
Cons: "No one cares what coach customers think of "their in-flight experience" so im not sure why I'm bothering. I got a cheap ticket and packed a tiny backpack. Was reminded of my lowly state by being made to wait till the last second to board. Last row of plane. 2 inches of leg room. Leave it to United to figure out a way to create a class of customer so low that you envy all the other cattle. MOOOOO!"
Pros: "Pilot and flight attendant communication"
Cons: "Seats too close. No food available for last 10 rows of plane. Way too long of a flight for there to be limited food availability."
Pros: "The crew was Friendly. I like the streaming to personal device option & in flight app usage."
Cons: "Getting delayed in Denver, again. IT'S THE airport, not the airline, I swear. But to have a delay at the very last min due to technical issues, was not well received, albeit, out of my control, of course."
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy, quick boarding. I had gate checked my bag. Upon arrival, it wasn't brought up with the others. A ground crewman said he would find it. After a few minutes he returned with my bag, thanked him profusely, he saved the day for United"
Cons: "I am tall and don't fit the curvature of the seatback plus the padding of the seat pan was too hard"
Pros: "Prompt, organized boarding. Professional, pleasant staff."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. My adult son and I had tickets to "see agent" and given seats together. But they'd also assigned his seat a another person, who was already settled. Luckily, there was a seat left, and both arrived at out destination. Their solution was to move him, even tho we were traveling together."
Pros: "Never took it"
Cons: "Never took this flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The economy seats are TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. Attendants NEED to be more aware of the size of carry-on items and the amount each person brings onto the plane. People in the front 10 rows of the plane should not be putting their luggage in the back, taking up space so people in groups 3-5 have space to put their luggage."
Cons: "There was a very large couple sitting in seat to my right. I'm 6'3 250 so not small. It had a rear bathroom and I had people banging on me the whole flight!!!!!! She could have moved some people around!!!! The worst flight of my life!!!! It's about customer service."
Pros: "Roomy seats. Good leg room."
Cons: "Seat comfort is ok, they do not recline very much. You can only watch movies if you have an app on your phone or tablet."
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, and the boarding was quick."
Cons: "There was no snacks or anything to eat during the flight ."
Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
Pros: "This was a nonstop flight with Air Canada, in cooperation with United Airlines"
Cons: "A small plane, crowded and full, for a non stop, international flight. Obviously, United prefers to use the larger, more comfortable planes for flights through their hub in Chicago- which is always a hot mess!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the in cabin experience went smoothly."
Cons: "It took over half an hour, for the plane to depart from the runway. In addition, the gate was changed three times without overhead announcements from O'Hare."
Pros: "The flight attendant, Elizabeth, was great! She was friendly and helpful. She made our flight more enjoyable."
Cons: "The ranch snack mix was kinda spicy and had a couple of weird things in with the pretzels. I would've liked it better if it was just regular pretzels. In fact, both my boyfriend and I only ate the pretzels part of it, because we didn't like the other parts."
Pros: "It was my grandson's first plane ride. They let us board early because I was managing two carry on suitcases. The flight was smooth and he loved the apple juice. He learned so much by looking out the window and seeing the ground and the clouds."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
Pros: "Easy flight , no fuss no muss . Great snacks ."
Cons: "More seating area in the airport near the gate , flight itself was great ."
Cons: "seat size is getting pretty small give us passengers a break here! we're not cattle n deserve a little room-especiall when Airlines are making record profits!!!"
Pros: "Price was good. Flight attendant was particularly good and promptly checked and verified I had a wheelchair secured for Mpls. Alll flight attendants held positive personable attitude. Arrived on time"
