Southwest has turned very unreliable on meeting flight times
No second pilot scheduled. Flight delayed for quite a bit. There was discussion about the flight not happening loud enough we could hear without actually announcing that fact
Pros: "boarding was exactly on time and take off was just on time and flight was shorter than anticipated."
Pros: "Amazing crew and service"
Cons: "Seats are too close and cramped"
Cons: "I like to choose my seat before boardiing"
Cons: "There was a 30min delay loading luggage"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic"
Pros: "The flight crew was AMAZING & extremely hospitable. They truly went above and beyond, even on such a short flight."
Cons: "All was well - best flight I've had in a looooong time.."
Cons: "WN had no control over the wind delays so discounting that it was a fine flight. Where they fell short was the lack of sympathy from the first customer service agent working C concourse where this flight came in at. She had no experience dealing with people asking for for help. Her response basically was it it way at it is deal with it. No offer of anything unlike Michelle work gate B10. She was very helpful and offered to buy me on standby for an earlier flight"
Cons: "There was a 30 minute delay on second leg of my trip but it was no problem getting to Scaramento early"
Pros: "Fast convenient flight great staff"
Pros: "No frills, cheap and straight forward"
Cons: "Seat assign without add-on cost, interior condition, smoother flying technique"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was essentially nonexistent. WiFi connection kept cutting out. The seats were extremely narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "My 2 flights had less than 1 hour in between. The St Louis flight was delayed 20 mins initially then while waiting on board while carry-on bag checking delayed us further. My layover was down to 20 mins. Once we arrived to Vegas, the sky bridge wasn’t ready, my next flight was done boarding."
Pros: "Pretty good legroom but this flight is otherwise bare bones. You don't even get a cup of water. Staff were rude. We were delayed three hours. No compensation was given for anyone missing their events or connecting flights. My large medical assist dog was shoved under the seat. Never again. Expensive"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. I'll never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and pilot was friendly to passengers and took time to greet and talk to some of the passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3.25 hours. But no explanation from staff at the gates plus gates being moved from one to the other. In our case about 3 times and one of the gates doen't even exist. Had to cancel plans for nice Mother's Day dinner with my family since we're already tired sitting in the airport."
Pros: "The whole experience was perfect"
Cons: "There was no WiFi"
Pros: "Had only 1/3 of my seat because the neighbor was a huge guy. Extremely uncomfortable 4+ hour flight"
Cons: "They should have some type of screening to make sure that a passenger can fit in the chair."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No WiFi = no movies, TV, etc. on longest flight of the day."
Cons: "Not cancelling my flight"
Cons: "Delayed 45 minutes. Horrible turbulence. Got our drinks late and then had to chug them so the crew could clean up, and landing was terrible."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Delays due to equipment"
Pros: "Crew SDF to LAS entertaiing"
Cons: "Flight Delays LAS to SJC were longer than the flight time from LAS to SJC; and not well explained."
Pros: "They did not service any drinks. There was no reason for drinks to not be served and I was not feeling good. When I asked for a drink, the attendance scowled at me and said no. I asked a second time and she said she couldn't to give me one. Very disappointing. :("
Pros: "Wasn’t a full flight so was able to be comfortable in exit row"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Full flight without room in seats."
Pros: "I like southwest. I fly them about 50 trips a year. My airline"
Cons: "On this leg we were delayed, it happens. I’m aggravated because they boarded us a hour ahead of the pilot being available. After a three hour flight we get to St. Louis and they have a piece of equipment blocking the gate. Flight was fine, both ends were poor."
Pros: "The crew makes the flight! Friendly, entertaining."
Cons: "Half hour delay."
Pros: "Southwest is cheap"
Cons: "you get what you pay for."
Cons: "attendant blocked a great emergency exit, only to later give it to someone else even after I asked. Singing was way too loud. Could tolerate, but the last 5 minutes (literally) he talked about credit cards, airport, jokes, schedule, though passengers and more singing. Get a job entertaining, or at least turn down the audio so it doesn’t blast us out of the plane!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! We even landed on time. And the guy who was doing all the announcements probably has to get another job; he would be a great comedian!"
Pros: "Efficient, 2 free bags"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The Flight attendant who showed the safety briefing did so in an amusing way."
Cons: "It was 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Boarding is easy. Friendly service."
Cons: "My bags never made it on the plane, and it wasn't specifically located because you don't scan bags until they arrive at their destination. It's more than a little inconvenient because I couldn't change clothes, but I also didn't have to drag my bag to the hotel."
Pros: "Everything was satisfactory..boarding process, crew and flight.biggest advantage that first two bags fly free."
Pros: "There is no parallel to Southwest Airlines. We do all our travel with this company, even if the price is higher. It usually isn’t, but even if it is. With free baggage, free last-minute rescheduling, never losing your flight credits for another flight, always a great crew, and the list goes on – – crazy to fly any other way."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight had a lingering smell of body odor. It was very off putting the whole flight and then the flight attendants interrupted everyone’s sleep to sing happy birthday to a 30 year old."
Pros: "On time - clean - friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight time was shorter than normal"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "We got their early"
Cons: "No foid purchase"
Cons: "Again, They lost my f&@!king luggage."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and professional."
Cons: "Older cramp older plane."
Pros: "Our emotional support dog flew many times in south west. Treated like a Real passenger"
Cons: "Well, they made me buy a ticket and a kennel because we did not have the letter from the physician although we had the tag from USAR/ USDR. It's okay"
Pros: "The crew on our flight was great. Very friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost two hours... We arrived in Vegas and they only delayed the connection by ten minutes. We got to watch our plane roll away. They lost our luggage even though the next flight we went on didn't leave until 45 minutes later. Our luggage finally arrived late that night and we got it the next day, albeit with about an hour of phone calls as they didn't give my phone number to the delivery service. I called the next morning in response to the voice message. The Southwest folks had trouble finding our ticket as they had put it under my girlfriend's name and entered my address incorrectly. I got the delivery service number and called them. I was told that they'd call me when the driver got in as we were staying at an AirBnb and it was a locked apartment building. They didn't call and I had to make two more calls to finally arrange to be at the apartment to obtain our luggage. So, all told we lost about 10 hours of our vacation having to deal with all of the above."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Provided required safety information and kept us informed of what was going on. Especially our arrival and departure times. Very important. Boarding was efficient but different."
Cons: "The food selection left a lot to be desired but it's southwest where the prices are awesome for the flights. Also the lack of entertainment options but I fly to the entertainment. Not to be entertained."
Pros: "Got to sit in an exit row, and I could stretch out my legs!! Crew was very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "People complaining about air pockets and turbulence and not getting their drink on, and posting about it. Yes, I agree, YOUR flight was probably the only one with a rough ride that day, and it was Southwest's fault!"
Pros: "Got here early"
Pros: "The crew. Customer service."
Cons: "Snacks other than the cookie they always offer."
Cons: "Temperature on ground and in air...stuffy and warm"
Pros: "The crew member did a good helping me"
Cons: "If Alaska didn’t overbook my flight then bump me off"
Cons: "We got awful seats and sat nowhere close to each other"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing & super friendly. They have a 20 minute bag guarantee so you get your checked luggage super fast."
Cons: "On one my flights I had to sit in an isle seat & people kept bumping me while I was trying to sleep but that's really out of anybody's control so I can't fault the airline for it!"
Pros: "Seats had decent leg space."
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault 100% but getting a bag checked in Honolulu was a nightmare. Kiosks didn’t turn on until 9:30a and no desk assistance until shortly thereafter then immediately overwhelmed by issues with the kiosks. Needed my full 4hrs transfer, everything took a very long time."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPads for rent. No in seat tv screens Seats are hard"
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "Simple ways that make the atmosphere in the air a little more welcoming and friendlier."
Pros: "The only positives were that the flight was on time and crew members were reliable."
Cons: "The seat was very dirty. I even felt the need to wipe it before I sat down, and the tissue I used became black. Otherwise, I felt like the plane was tight and uncomfortable for a 5.5 hour flight. At the end, one crew member was complaining about how slow we were to disembark to the people on the plane."
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight"
Cons: "Dirty tray table, crappy snack"
Pros: "I always love flying Alaska and the flight attendants are always super nice!"
Pros: "Clean airplane, great customer service, cheap tickets, carryon is free, airplane has plenty of carryon space, provide free inflight drink service and inflight movies. Never Fly Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "I loved how helpful everyone was. It was our first time flying with a baby but everyone answered all of our questions and helped us."
Cons: "The only bad thing was on one of flights there was no changing table in the bathroom I used."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"
Pros: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Cons: "The person next to me missed their connection due to sitting on the tarmak."
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "Flight was really packed and I was traveling with a baby and ended up sitting next to a heavier person who kept bumping into me and baby. Felt very constricted and tense but the passenger was very nice. I just paid a lot for ticket."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "Flight was fine - can't really say much real good or bad - we slept most of the time. Left tablet on board and a crew member retrieved it for me and did so with a smile. Pretty happy with the flight."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
Cons: "All legs of my trip from San Jose to Seattle to Philadelphia and back were all delayed; so much so that on the trip to Philadelphia, I had to be rebooked on Delta; and on the trip back to Seattle, I almost missed my flight due to a 50 minute delay on the runway waiting. I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "The short flight was made especially nice with one flight attendant offering to give a free drink for showing Seattle seahawk pride! Either wearing a jersey or showing a picture with seahawk pride. Very friendly and fun! The views were very beautiful also! Love Alaska airlines and LOVE the seahawks!!"
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, loved the charging port on seatbacks, kind staff."
Cons: "Could've used more options on the entertainment website, or at least shown a movie for everyone"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late for no reason which ended up costing me $1500 and two days to rebook my return flight. Thanks, Alaska."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Generally clean. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wish there was more complimentary meals. Though they did offer us free cheese plate due to Christmas which was nice!"
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
Cons: "It's always a let down when transferring from an international airline to a domestic one that nickels and dimes you for food and drink"
Pros: "Great airline that gets you to where you need to go on time and with comfort."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and simple. Fill from the back to the front, now weird zones and scattered boarding process"
Cons: "Considering that gas prices have seriously dropped and the airline continues to charge me an extra $25 to travel with luggage, you'd think they would offer passengers more than a single micro bag of pretzels and a cup a soda as complimentary item on a four hour flight."
Excellent service and comfort!
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was good, legroom barely adequate but we flew economy...."
Cons: "Late departure because of a seat on the plane was broken.... late arrival because they was already a plane parked at our gate. Otherwise not bad for holiday travel"
Pros: "Crew was outstanding! Relaxed yet professional vibe"
Cons: "Online seat check in was confusing"
Pros: "Was a short flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Part way through boarding they opened up a second line to scan tickets. So everyone that was in line behind us ran up up to the front of the new line. Extremely frustrating for all of us that now had to wait longer."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good seat assignment"
Cons: "Felt bullied by Hawaiian Airline from beginning of the trip as they picked me as a subject for TSA to check me thoroughly in Tokyo then Honolulu, missed my flight as the result. Will definitely avoid Hawaiian Airlines at all costs"
Cons: "We were 1.5 hr delayed"
Pros: "An entirely unexceptional airline that provides zero amenities for such a long flight."
Cons: "Charge me $20 more a seat and provide a meal and in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The only reason I gave a “good” rating for this flight is because the crew & staff were courteous and patient, given the chaos."
Cons: "A lot happened. First system was down in SJC so it delayed boarding. Also passengers without seat assigned (and for some reason there were a lot of us) had to wait until all other passengers boarded before seats were assigned. Then in HNL we had to wait over 30 minutes before baggage came out."
Pros: "La atención !!! Excelente"
Pros: "Great crew...helpful and friendly! They also provided a good meal, snack and complimentary wine for those of us in coach. No other domestic airline does that."
Cons: "While they say it has entertainment unit they don’t tell you that you have to pay for it and you have to purchase ear phones as well. Had seat 43E it doesn’t recline, pocket at back of seat broken, delayed 2hrs due to faulty PA system and compensation was a free punch cocktail."
Pros: "The breakfast on the way to Honolulu and the lunch on the way back to the mainland. The food was very tasty and made the long flight seem shorter."
Cons: "The seats are too small. There was also no way to update the seat, to pay for a closer seat, nothing. The booking should have allowed me to do this."
Pros: "great flight attendants. good food and snacks."
Cons: "the movies were all for purchase."
Pros: "Complimentary Guava Cocktail at the end of the flight, friendly crew staff, excellent boarding system, great pilot"
Cons: "Most movies were “paid” selections so I didn’t even bother, seats were very narrow even for a shinny person like myself. It seems that they installed more row of seats than much needed restrooms. They only had two in the back, only two in the middle of the economy section, I don’t know about the coach class and the first class cabin but as far as the economy class that was it, and that’s terrible. That is less than a half restrooms normally available on other carrier I’ve known. They should learn from ANA or Canada Air. The cabin temperature seems to be rather cold throughout the flight, yet there was no pillow (only paid one) nor blanket available."
Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"
Pros: "I was able to charge my phone and the staff were very respectful and helpful."
Cons: "No WiFi for an 11+ hour flight... No vegetarian option for food."
Cons: "We purchased tickets with assigned seats and when checking in we did not have assigned seats. Had to spend an additional $80 per seat to get an assigned seats."
Pros: "Airbus. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."
Pros: "The staff were above and beyond. Organized, on-time boarding. The pilots were great. The seats were nice. The tropical beverage offered was lovely. We had a toddler on board a few rows up who either screeched or cried the whole time, as in 5 of the almost 6 hour flight. A REMINDER TO BRING YOUR EARPLUGS. The parents did their best, and at one point I was in the aisle with mom and baby during some turbulence and the child got sick. I let the attendant who was serving drinks know about the situation and he didn't miss a beat and helped mom and baby recover, and got the area cleaned up. It might not sound like much but it was the above and beyond that most people don't realize flight attendants take care of routinely. I appreciated that."
Cons: "The sugary breakfast. I was so surprised that literally nothing in the breakfast did not contain lots of sugar. The bread was inedibly sweet, the nonfat yogurt was overly sweet and had a weird chemical taste. Please at least low fat. Grapes, one of the highest sugar fruits, were the only thing I was able to eat. Please consider offering low/no sugar breakfast options, and wheat free options. I would have loved a hard boiled egg and some cheese and fruit. Couldn't really figure out the entertainment screen. Couldn't get the movies to load. I wasn't that interested in the screen but others might be. Tip: the jack is in the armrest."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "aircraft was old and small for the distance and seats had zero legroom. Nothing good to watch in way of movies."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, quick beverage service"
Cons: "It is not nice to sell a window seat that actually doesn't have a window (row 27)"
Cons: "When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid."
Pros: "games on the monitor were fun to play. food was good and filled me up Attendants were all very nice ar the end of our flight, the attendant complimented my son and I for being very good passengers"
Pros: "No food for Vegetarians have to starve for six to 7 hours flight ( Two people-2 Travellers)"
Cons: "No vegetarian food"
Pros: "That there were movies to watch, even though not such great options"
Cons: "Lost luggage that was gate checked, paid $600 extra for upgraded seats and they weren't great. We had a window seat but there was barely a window."
Pros: "The food and hospitability"
Cons: "Entertainment options were few and outdated"
Pros: "Acomadations were ok food and drink service were consistant good entertainment and hospitality"
Cons: "The only thing that I didnt like was due to my own actions with scheduling and non transferable tickets the insurance didnt cover anything complete waste of money and I had to cancel my charter due to issues with my flight and didnt recieve much help trying to rectify the situation all in all I lost a lot of money"
Pros: "The blanket and inflatable pillow were a home run with my wife and row mates."
Cons: "Rock hard seats and after 6 hours we were done. May need to get fat?"
Pros: "Honolulu to San Fran left on time and arrived a little early. My hip had started to hurt so they gave me assistance and arranged for assistance to meet me at my final destination. I had roughly 1 1/2 hrs between my three flights and it all flowed like butter."
Cons: "No coffee when we woke up in San Fran, but once in the terminal I used one of the excellent concession stands. Perhaps a compromise could be serving the coffee that comes in 12oz cans. Ito- En? is the brand. Simple choice- comes with or without milk.Ice coffee is better than NO coffee."
Pros: "it got me there"
Cons: "paid entertainment, very little food"
Pros: "Served food, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Entertainment expensive"
Pros: "Outlet at the seat in comfort section. Service, staff, boarding on/off, and inflight was great. Food was fresh and edible. Soothing sounds music channel. Playing Golf and numbers game. Blanket & pillow."
Cons: "The price to bid for upgrade to First Class was expensive. Doesn't allow you to select your own dollar amount as it's preset. Upgraded to extra comfort seating and not enough padding on the seat cusions. Not many tv and complementary movies to select from."
Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "The seats felt bigger in coach than Alaska, Overhead bins seem larger too. Gave food for the longer trips. Not bad either. The crew was very friendly and looked like they enjoyed their job. Boarding was fast, and plane on time. Liked having the small screen monitor at the seat."
Cons: "Like having 24 no penalty cancellation that other airlines have. If have a full flight like having a no charge to put your carry on luggage for free into cargo."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service"
Cons: "Only the coffee - too weak."
Pros: "Gate agents were very nice, I had very little time because of TSA being very slow. They helped me get to my flight with a few minutes to spare."
Cons: "There was not much of an option to adjust a cold draft near my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1+ hour. The ticketing agents were rude when we inquired about re-scheduling a connecting flight. They were not accommodating at all. They required purchase of in-flight movies. Next time I'm flying Alaska, at least the movies are free."
Pros: "Kind stewardesses, good food and snacks, and friendly people. This being a long awaited visit with my daughter, my flight was a great transition for which I am so thankful!"
Cons: "The flight was long and my back gets tired but none of that has any reflection on the high quality of service I received."
Cons: "The fact that flight attendant just left food on my tray when I didn't ask for it. I get motion-sickness very easily, so I would like to avoid food if possible. Would appreciate more consideration towards that, like leaving a note instead of leaving the food without asking me first."
Pros: "It was a long 12h flight from NY to HI, I requested change of seat. They arranged it so so got one in empty row since I were by myself. Food is good too!"
Cons: "Paid 1500 for a flight from California to Kona, and Hawaiian airlines wouldn't give me a seat assignment until I arrived at gate. Very stressful and spent hours getting run around in the phone for months beforehand. Bought ticket 6 months early. Will not fly with this airline again"
Cons: "Didn't see seat assignments during check in. Hawaiian airline agent at the gate was super rude when I asked to get seat assignments for my family."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier."
Cons: "I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and the captain made a landing so perfect we didn't know we had landed!"
Cons: "The food was disappointing. The sandwich in particular was dry and tasteless. Other passengers mentioned this too."
Pros: "Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price."
Cons: "Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome."
Pros: "Crew was unbelievably helpful and kind. My grandmother had heart issues on our flight. They took excellent care of us, and checked on her often, even crew members not assigned to our area. Aside from that, various entertainment options, both free and paid. Meal was good and I still crave their trail mix!"
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "I never boarding this flight."
Cons: "Better communication skills."
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Cons: "Middle seat, last row. In a full flight, and the passenger in fronf reclines, its difficult to watch monitor, eat, or move"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Cons: "Cheerless stewards could perk up."
Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "You can add bkfst for A.M flights"
Pros: "I appreciate how Delta always takes care of their passengers. Comfortable seating and accessible entertainment"
Pros: "nothing- the plane took of late and AGAIN with no reason given why - pilot blamed it on ATC"
Cons: "TAKING OFF ON TIME!! AN entertainment screen that actually worked, and not the very last seat in the plane (last row)."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Crew and generous pours of wine"
Cons: "The food was at best edible"
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Plane was too warm,"
Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."
Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Cons: "My friend and I was switched to an even worse seating when boarding. Very uncomfortable especially for my friend since he had crutches."
Pros: "Surprised to see the hostess serving food on a domestic flight. Were courteous when we were sitting on the tarmac for 3 hrs waiting for clearance."
Cons: "Folks at the boarding counter were rude. Had one bag as a carry on, and was forced to check it in. Whereas saw other folks stow their two personal items in the overhead cabin."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Too cramped. No leg room"
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "No puedo opinar mucho del proceso de abordaje, ya que para el procedimiento de ingreso a la terminal fue bastante tardado. Pero la atencion por parte del personal fue bastante amable, las bebidas fueron abundantes y justas."
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "A pretty well-run flight, till we landed and waited on the tarmac for a gate. Otherwise, uneventful. Lunch was decent. Crew was good."
Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."
Cons: "Bad turbulence"
Pros: "Free meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?!"
Pros: "great flight - easy and quick as always"
Cons: "the power on the plane didn't work and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "We upgraded to Delta Comfort, since the flight was a bit longer. I'm glad we did; it made a great deal of difference to have the extra space. The in-flight entertainment (individual displays on the backs of each seat) was excellent, the crew was excellent, and the flight was extremely smooth."
Pros: "Ease of it all!"
Cons: "The jerk behind me who kept kicking my seat and kept coughing obnoxiously like he had never been on a plane"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "I was starving because of my short connection time and couldn't have lunch - wanted to eat something solid and they just had boxes with fruits and cheese."
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Pros: "Service was ok food also crew was friendly"
Cons: "Check in bags and carry on policy and space on airplane is stupid"
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "I liked the service. It was incredible."
Cons: "I did not like the delay or the continued delay on the runway"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, easy access to entertainment, charging station at the chair, staff made accommodation for vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Maybe this is a China issue and not the airline but I wasn't able to bring an unopened bottle of water that I purchased in the security area. This made the 10 hour flight very uncomfortable as I went hours without water. Also, use of iPad for reading books wasn't allowed after the flight was established, I'm not sure who came up with these regulations but after spending a month on various flights in Asia, this was the only flight where I encountered these issues. Also, there was no vegetarian option in economy. Fortunatly, the staff brought a left over dinner from business class but I find it hard to believe that flight to the US would not have a vegetarian option."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Pros: "Having window seat"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Second flight was sold out and it was hot inside the plane the entire time."
Pros: "Sadly, nothing"
Cons: "Big bulky guy next to me insisted on using all of the armrest, all the time. Crew only greeted white passengers with a smile - which is something I'm noticing in many Delta flights (don't see that happen on Virgin or Alaska) I could see the luggage handlers throwing each bag onto the conveyor belt like they had a personal vendetta against each bag. They made an extra effort to toss each bag IN THE AIR so it lands with a thud. Seriously apalling!"
I made it to gate right before they closed the gates and still got put on the next available flight BUT let two other people go in who were behind me on the line. So disappointed.
Cons: "There are too many announcements on the screen before you can start watching entertainment. It takes about 15 minutes."
Cons: "Short flight, would have appreciated if when asking for pretzels the flaggt attendant didn't hand me the spare bag of his pockets."
Pros: "Really enjoy flying first class."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat with insufficient legroom wouldn't recline. Inadequate overhead storage (full flight)"
Cons: "The seat went back three inches. I was about to spasm after 4 hours. No movement whatsoever. The flight crew could have moved me but I suppose they were told not to as I had a cheap ticket."
Pros: "It was standard AA service"
Cons: "After flying in Delta Comfort+, American’s forward economy section is just nothing."
Pros: "Crew was tight, friendly, flight comfortable & painless."
Cons: "Sat waiting for gate for 30 min"
Cons: "There was literally no entertainment for over three hour flight and our flight was delayed an hour while we were on the plane."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We paid for assigned seating for our almost 85 yo mom. And the change in flight no one asked for to get seated in the front of plane. Instead she was seated all the way in the back. It was physically exhausting for her."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "At Miami check in, American had 40-60 automated terminals available for self check, but only had EIGHT open for use. Caused a needless bottleneck and the transition from there to the bag drop was also poorly laid out and did not provide a logical nor efficient route from one to the other. fix it!"
Pros: "On time flight. We were even a little early."
Cons: "Those seats are just crammed in there aren’t they?"
Pros: "The notifications regarding my connection and baggage claim."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no accommodation for seat assignments and the lady at the gate was so rude for even just asking to sit next to my fiancé even though there were tons of single people on the flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was on time"
Cons: "Old plane, no TVs"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. They did a gate change and I almost missed the flight because nothing was announced and when I looked at my phone app it had the previous gate."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so had to drive to connecting city just to make it home."
Cons: "My bags were not checked all the way to my destination, I had to get them re-tagged and checked for this part of the trip and the American Agent was EXTREMELY rude and made us pay oversized bagge fees even though our baggage was within the Qantas allowance, the main carrier for our flight."
Pros: "The plane looks like new. Great seats, phone and tablet holders at the seat back, USB outlet and a smooth flight."
Cons: "The WiFi did not work and so no entertainment for a flight of almost 4 hours."
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system in my seat didn't work well. Also, the flight was really late getting in to Denver."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tight seating leg room non existent."
Pros: "Fine for a domestic flight. Normally, American Airlines offer a small snack to go with the drinks. But on this particular flight, they went the United way and offered nothing but drinks. Crew was pleasant enough during the flight, although they didn't greet half of the passengers entering or exiting the plane."
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off and therefore getting to Denver. But there was no announcement about it. There was one announcement from the captain, but it was so soft that I couldn't hear anything. Upon landing and arriving at the gate, we stood there for a while with no lights on and seatbelt sign on, but no explanation of what was going on. There was no welcome to Denver message either. Maybe their announcement system was down."
Pros: "Landing and deplaning"
Cons: "Literally everything else"
Pros: "Our plane was given to another group going to Orlando so we were delayed almost 4 hours. This after a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "Gate lady was funny about being pissed about the delay."
Pros: "Great service in first class"
Pros: "Movie and tv selection was good. Boarding was a cinch, we took off exactly on time, seats were comfortable, too."
Cons: "Airline misplaced my boyfriend's checked back with our duty free Portuguese wine in it. It still hasn't been delivered to him the next day. They had three hours to get the bag on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Outlet did not work"
Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 90 minutes because the incflight mint flight was late"
Cons: "3rd flight in two weeks suck sitting next to a morbidly obese person. They should be forced to purchase two seats."
Cons: "the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies."
Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Seats were really uncomfortable up and reclined. Overhead baggage was full by the time I boarded and there was no enforcement of the carry-on baggage sizes... This needs to be addressed and contributed to our lack of comfort, noting this was the last leg of an 18 hour journey. My body still hurts today after a good nights sleep."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Pros: "The onboard entertainment selection was excellent; great movie selection, wifi connection, and flight details. A winner! So much so that I chose to binge watch movies and not sleep!!"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Pros: "No excuse on a night flight does the temperature to be 80 plus degrees on the plane."
Cons: "The plastic seats and extreme temperature was brutal. They shut the AC off of down somehow."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Pros: "I fly this route with American pretty often. The cabin crew was good. Everything else seemed sub par."
Cons: "Our take off was delayed, officially due to fueling the plane, but if the plane wasn't fueled ahead of time, someone failed to do their job properly. Also, while I'm starting to think that A320s just suck mechanically for landing (they always seem to land harder than a 737), this one seemed a little extra rough."
Cons: "Unexplained delay in leaving but only arrived about 10 min later than scheduled. Took an hour from pulling into the gate for bags to arrive though which caused me to miss my shuttle. Never had to wait more than 15 min for any other airline at DIA."
Cons: "They did not check the toilets before we left so we were diverted to St. Louis and I arrived in charlotte 3 hours late"
Pros: "Flight not entirely sold out. So they let my 14 month grandson have an empty seat between my daughter and I. That was a great gift since he doesn't sleep and is jumping and crawling all over the place. And I'm sure the other passengers were breathing sighs of relief!! Also super smooth landing and nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Flying with an active 14 month old toddler boy and of his "stuff" is nothing less than anxiety provoking. Not much the airline can do.."
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."
Cons: "When your on your honeymoon it sure would be nice to have a seat next to my husband like we requested."
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"
