Cons: "Crowded plane TBH lmao...But overall thal I can REALLY complain about."

Pros: "Basically on time, fast luggage retrieval, clean bathrooms, great coffee, especially the brewed decaf."
Cons: "Should load plane from rear first Takes too long to load from front to back. Biscuits are awful."

Pros: "The people who work for Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."

Pros: "On time and efficient service, Alaska made the entire journey easy and terrific. I will continue to use this airline it is a mile above the rest."

Pros: "Clean new planes. Good service."

Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "sat in a middle seat"

Pros: "1st class and iMessage"
Cons: "No tv/wifi to watch anything"

Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."

Pros: "Comfortable for long flight with pleasant staff. No issues!"

Pros: "The service was fine."
Cons: "On the airline website it said that flights to OC flew out of the international terminal but they don't. Then the flight took off 1/2 hour late at least."

Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."

Pros: "The crew was really nice & the Alaska check in was really helpful tp make sure I went to the right area."
Cons: "Was one of the first ones there. When boarding they started to to load from backto front. After they called the back from rows 20 & beyond a few mins later a whole group of people came running over & got in line, then another wave of people came running over & got in line. Then they called for the rest to board but there was only about 5 people. So we ended up being the last one on."

Pros: "Overall, this flight was excellent. Customer service was great from the attendants to the lady scanning our boarding passes. Flight was on-time, not over-packed, and had free wi-fi with a good connection. I'll try to fly Alaska when possible in the future."
Cons: "The seats were a little squeaky and there was little to no leg room, but I really wasn't to disappointed about this since that's just the way airplanes are today. Comfort was average."

Pros: "The crew were even more friendly and chatted with me, the flight was more empty so I had an entire row to myself and was able to sit near the lavatory. I was ablessed to watch "Hidden Figures" during the flight, a movie I had been anxious to watch but had not had the time. And the coffee was delicious! Whenever I make my own travel arrangements I always fly with Alaska!"
Cons: "Bit of a bumpy ride due to some turbulence, however that cannot be helped."

Cons: "It was a bit cold on the plane but it was a smooth flight."

Pros: "Nine was great."

Cons: "Delay boarding"

Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"

Cons: "No wifi or entertainment, minimal snacks, some turbulence which made crew very rude/curse. They were not nice."

Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful.

Pros: "Sandee was an outstanding Flight Attendant. In between the safe take-off and landing, Sandee made my wife and I feel like Family. We were in First Class, and it was worth every penny with Sandee In our section. She had a great sense of humor, was very responsive to our needs, and made the trip home just as pleasurable as our Resort Vacation."
Cons: "There could have been more pens available for the Immigration/Customs forms. I seem to forget to bring my own sharpened pencils, ballpoint pens, awls, screwdrivers, ice-picks, and quills when I fly. Sandee loaned me hers, but there were several people scrambling to complete the forms."

Pros: "The crew and cleanliness was great!"
Cons: "No usb sockets to charge my phone"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew, and blocked the middle seat for our infant."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."

Cons: "No wifi available and The video entertainment service was bad: my video screen didn’t work- I asked for head phones and no one ever came back to me with some- luckily I had already Dwnld my own you tube and videos so I watch’s dmh own. I hope going home to hawaii these won’t be issue again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Seats are in humane"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work (network wouldn't show up)."

Pros: "attendant frienliness, and communication."
Cons: "The plane. it is an unsuitable for more than one hour flight. The value for the money is down in the bottom."

Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"

Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."

Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."

Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "Pretty much nothing"

Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Pros: "Everything was pretty smooth, on time, as expected, no problems."
Cons: "The entertainment access from my device was unusable due to unavailability of downloading the proprietary American Airlines APP. I had the GoGo In Flight app installed but that wasn’t enough. A better system should be in place."

Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"

Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."

Cons: "The cabin was way too cold."

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: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

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: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "Drink service was good"

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "Good service and excellent crew"
Cons: "Food choice are few by the time they reach the back of the plane."

Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."

Cons: "Cramped seating. As per usual."

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The ticketing staff in Lihue was excellent!"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."

Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"

Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No phone charging at seats, no personal video in setback..."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."

Pros: "The flights weren't delayed and were right on time."
Cons: "Both flights were on time."

Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"

Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours. Moved gates 3X's to a different terminal twice. Landed at different airport with a 1hr bus ride. Nothing good. No compecompensation. Booooo."

Cons: "Extra for carry on extra for movie,extra to eat,cramped sitting for 4 hours,earphone jack broken,screen control broken,keep paying more for less,sucked"

Cons: "Couldn't make"

Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."

Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "What entertainment system? This was terrible. While so many airplanes have personal screens and entertainment systems, this flight was a find your own connection and good luck. Not very helpful and on a VERY late flight (due to weather)."

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."

Pros: "Flight was super delayed and everyone was way to unorganized."

Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't lean back on this flight, it was able to I think it was just jammed."

Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare."

Pros: "The free pass to united club lounge"
Cons: "They change my seat to the very last one. Flight attendants are old wrinkled and grumpy. The plane looked and smelled old. The pilot took 30 minutes to take off. Bumpy take off and it seem like the plane was struggling to gain altitude."

Pros: "Makes such a difference with the crew is smiling and friendly. What a nice change from the overall attitude you normally get flying united."
Cons: "Entertainment system"

Cons: "The free in-flight wifi entertainment did not work. The cabin was too warm the whole flight. I was sweating in a Tshirt."

Pros: "Superb crew With lights dimmed steward found me and brought me a drink Just a mention about how I would like one during routine service I felt got special service but they probably do that for everyone Very nice Felt crew went out of their way to make sure all nerds taken care of!"
Cons: "Baggage claim in different terminal than where we landed No signage"

Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."

Pros: "perfect"
Cons: "thank you"

Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."

Cons: "Being required to sit in middle seat and I'm deaf so I could not see what was going on in the isle like watching the flight attendants deliver their message."

Pros: "I really love the customer service of wheel chair for my mom , he was super nice , could not believe that he took care of my mom untile her seat , amazing . His name was Brooks Vestal , I will never forget 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."

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: "Flight attendants were nice, the plane had wifi"
Cons: "We were sat against the bathroom in the very back and there is no leg room or any chance to lean back, mine and my wife's backs were very sore after the flight. The plane was outdated, I was really hoping for TV but it didn't have it."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very friendly"
Cons: "Since I could not check in the day before I was not able to change my seat. The gate agent was not helpful"

Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."

Pros: "Everything ran on time in a smoothly Manor..."
Cons: "Not to comfortable need more space between People"

Cons: "Other than the flight being delayed it was a good flight"

Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."

Cons: "Boarding was a little rough. I use a walker and I had to board last. It was difficult for me to get to my seat."

Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"

Pros: "The plane being on time. Next time would prefer to be able to choose seats. I like the window"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The cabins was remarkably clean and the pilot on the second leg was very entertaining, pointing out landmarks."
Cons: "The video selection on the second leg."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"

Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."

Cons: "I did not make it on time to a wedding because of the delay & problem with the plane."

Cons: "Poor management of delayed flight and boarding"

Cons: "There was a one hour delay in our boarding and departure times which cut into our travel times."

Cons: "Never made it to Sna. Whiched me to lax because that was fastest time back. Wasted more money on uber to get home from la"

Pros: "Efficient boarding and exiting"
Cons: "Spoke to united agent night before light. Re distance between gates in in Houston. Wasn't sure that I was only two gates away and I would not need wheelchair transportation. However when I re-arrived in Houston not only was I at the far end of the terminal I landed in I had to go all the way out and catch a train to a different turn on and the and the gate was not there, was train ride to different terminal, I just made the flight, but my hip is still hurting"

Pros: "Clean new airplane. pleasant staff. On time."
Cons: "United charges 8 bucks for you to just see where you are now. Worse yet, the entertainment system loops with sound off even if you dont choose it. Taunting you to "just swipe" so you can join the club. I HATE this experience and feel the airline has made a very bad call. I'm sure some bean counter is looking at the "swipes" as proof of his brilliance. but i will pay more to fly on other airlines after this...so screw you guys."

Pros: "Plane left on time, arrived early, wasn't completely full."

Pros: "I had a mobility issue and was given preboarding and extra legroom seats, which helped my overall satisfaction. The temperature in the plane started very cold and then sometimes would go really warm. Other than that, good flight, nonstop and fast, and pleasant crew."
Cons: "I put poor for food & entertainment, because there were none (for free)."

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "My flight got canceled 3 hours before take off. Had to wait for over an hour on hold to reschedule it. The flight that was rescheduled was not direct and turned a 1.5 hour trip into a 6 hour trip. Also every time I was in boarding group 4 but was at the front of the plane and ALL OF THE OVERHEAD SPACE WAS TAKEN ALREADY so I had to walk further back in the plane to find overhead space so when the plane landed I got to WAIT FOR EVERYONE TO GET OFF so that I could walk TO THE BACK OF THE PLANE to get my bag!!! Ridiculous never flying United airlines ever ever ever again."

Pros: "The in flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The people at the ticket counter were rude and not helpful when my boarding pass wouldn't print. When I bought my airline ticket, I was not informed that I would have a checked bag fee, and it was expensive. The flight was late coming into Denver as well. The flight was delayed multiple times for reasons the airline would not tell anyone why. After we were able to board the plane, the gate attendants were rude. The in flight crew was nice, but they were not helpful with people trying to figure out seating. After everyone was on the plane, we were delayed once again. Once we finally got in the air, I tried to watch a movie. The movies were expensive also. The movie would not play for some reason. There was no leg room or room for me, or the person next to me. I would not recommend flying with this airline. This was the first time I have flown with them, and will be my last time. I don't like to write bad reviews but I have to with as many problems as I had with this airline."

Cons: "I never made this flight because the previous flight's delay caused me to miss it completely."
