I overheard flight attendants bad mouthing a passenger in the back. Was unprofessional. Otherwise, flight was good.

Me encanta esta aerolínea Los asiento tienen mas espacio

There was a broken door on one of the lavatories. Other than that.., excellent

There was no entertainment on the flight. Excellent boarding and crew.

Pros: "yes"
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was on schedule."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating during the long delays boarding and deplaning:"
Cons: "Delays were extremely long to the destination and upon arrival no gate was available for our plane which caused another long delay."
Cons: "When we landed they parked the plane a foot from where it needed to be. We all had to be reseated while they moved the plane a foot. It still didn't seem to work. It took 20 minutes before the door was opened to deplane."
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were very kind and super attentive!"
Pros: "Fast flight; clean cabin: tv screens at every seat"
Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Change gate not done properly"
Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Cons: "Having a gate at ORD. Waited on runway for 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "We had a delay in departure"
Cons: "Movie options and better food variety"
Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "first class service"
Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."
Pros: "Crew Entertainment"
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "The staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was late."
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: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."
Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."
Cons: "The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen."
Pros: "Nothing, didn’t fly"
Cons: "I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying. When I contacted Alaskan, they “reimbursed” me for the flight but simultaneously charged me $125 as a change fee. The result was no benefit from the insurance, and a loss of my money as a result."
Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Pros: "Excellent boarding arrangements. Great selection of entertainment shows. Crew were good hospitable."
Cons: "Seats were too bad. Half the seats on the flight were not able to be pushed back. Uncomfortable journey. Food selection wasn't the best. Also the quality could be questioned."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "gate change and no display text on digital display that the updated gate was indeed the flight to SFO"
Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers."
Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"
Pros: "Very warm and pleasant crew with great service while the ticket price is reasonable."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport 5 minutes (NO more than that) after the one hour check in time to fly international going to Mexico. We were told we had to wait in line to speak with someone to print a boarding pass. There was an extremely long line with only two employees helping. We then asked if we could get our money back being that if someone has specially helped us with our case only being 5 minutes late to check in, but they declined. We had to book an entirely different flight and still have not gotten our money back. It was very stressful and unprofessional and had someone actually helped us, we would’ve arrived at our destination at the proper time we worked so hard for. I know my boyfriend and I weren’t the only people with his problem because two other families ran into the exact same avoidable problem. It felt very unprofessional. It ruined a familys vacation and caused the poor children to cry because of the lack of accommodation. We would love our money back but not sure you guys will even do so. Very disappointing."
Cons: "I didn't make it because the flight to LAX was late and despite being told by an Avianca employee there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Small, hard seats."
Pros: "Getting to my destination on time. No lost luggage. The crew was very good about finding me when left camera behind on plane. Excellent service. I travel on Alaska and. Irvin America frequently and have never had an unpleasant experience on either one. They are always pretty much on time."
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "Crew was great. I was carrying a tuxedo and a suite and one of the crew offered to take them from me and hang them instead of folding them in the overhead. Everyone was very please t."
Cons: "1. Entertainment was a small tablet that you rent to see movies. I can’t believe it has reached that extent. 2. Food. We ordered a chicken sandwich and the veggies that go in the sandwich came separately in. ZIPLOCK bag. The shredded carrots were all over the place. Really bad idea."
Pros: "I love the upgrade option to Premium class and the snack box that comes with it is great! Staff was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Only one thing: when using the kiosk to get my boarding pass and upgrade, it doesn't specifically state to insert and quickly remove my credit card, so I'm waiting waiting waiting and nothing is happening and I start over and still nothing, so I go wait in line at the desk that solves problems only to learn that small detail and then the clerk said he couldn't take care of it for me and sent me back to the kiosk! What a pain! I'm sure I'm not the only one this has happened to. How hard is it to put clear instructions on the screen? please and thank you!"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines continues to do it rite! To my surprise, while checking in my 60 lb bag of surfboards, I was only charged $25, not the already low price of $75 I am usually charged. This new discounted price enabled me to save $100 round trip on board charges. Unlike other airlines that charge $100 Per surfboard, Alaska Airlines has implemented a program that serves the sports enthusiasts. From surfers, golfers, hunters, fisherman, and so on. Our gear goes with us for a fantastic price. Also, the food is actually pretty tasty too & the flight attendants treat you well."
Cons: "Got to the gate about 20 min before flight. The gate attendant got a bad customer service attitude when I questioned why we couldn't board flight. We were a little late because our flight from Taipei was an hour late. She did schedule us at 6 am on another flight which made an interesting (painful) night with 3 boys under the age of 6. Nowhere did it state that boarding was closed 30 minutes prior to the flight. Bad experience - late night ...small kids... no food or drink available...surley gate person..no notice of the boarding policy...just a very bad experience."
Pros: "This was our first time using Alaska Airlines and they were great! Checking in online was easy. Flight attendants and other staff were friendly and seemed to have your best interest in mind. My husband and I had a 20 hour layover in LA coming back from Costa Rica and we asked if we would have to pay another fee to recheck our bag for the second flight. They were very understanding and waived the fee since our overnight stay in LA was technically a layover and we had previously made the whole reservation for both flights at once using their company. Overall we liked our experience with Alaska and would definitely use them again!"
Pros: "Ground and in flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late because of a suddent issue with the designated pilot's health but then they also gave me a good discount coupon."
Cons: "Got in later than expected into Seattle, so had to rebook my shuttle and delay it an hour. Not awful but certainly an inconvenience."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Seats are abhorring, No space for knees. Horrible food."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Flight came with free entertainment. That's a plus."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Check in was very good. The seats can be more space."
Cons: "I think the breakfast should be better."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Pros: "That I arrived on time"
Cons: "Without any kind of entertainment, Some soft music will be better than the aircraft noise.."
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "many movies"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, and movie selection was great. Flight got was smooth, too."
Cons: "The Tiny seats. I’m smaller (5’7 135 lbs) and was sitting next to a regular sized man (6’ 175lbs) and we had no room."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Poor communication with passengers during the process."
Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."
Pros: "seat was comfortable. flight almost on time food was poor"
Cons: "food was poor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."
Pros: "Price, new plane, interactive system"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on and pay for it. I was not charged on my way to lax or my trip to Hawaii. Sad. And person was rude"
Cons: "Missed flight"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, no problems or hassles. Seat reclined and was reasonably comfortable. Left early, arrived even earlier."
Cons: "Crew was more robotic than human, which is bexoming a trend on AA. No smiles, no acknowledgment, just doing the job of handing out food and picking up trash. No personal touch whatsoever. Food was subpar for an AA flight, especially international. Entertainment system has many defects and problems, for example "search" is useless. Uninspiring and forgettable film choices as well. The knob to control air flow was broken which made it chilly. To finish as I started, a more engaged and pleasant crew could have made all the other things more palpable and acceptable. They were just too cold, like the temperature in the cabin and distant."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Easy and customer service at lax was awesome and very helpful!!!"
Cons: "The 45 minute bag time that's it may or may not be able to go 45 mins within boarding ."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "The chicken dinner was not good. Also the sound on seat computer was not working and on a 11 hour flight it is terrible."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "The TV entertainment built in the seat."
Cons: "The baggage check in process, the 6 hour delay of my flight, wasting the majority of my day in the airport due to plane inspection. De-planing after boarding. The unorganized line/crowd during the boarding process."
Pros: "New plane with leather like seats and good entertainment system."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Upgraded from Business to First on a transcend A321. Seats amazing, hard product is just superb on these planes. Crew good but a bit animatronic as always with AA."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "I could not change the flight with less payment so I missed the flight and booked another one."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It cost me $86 dollars to supposedly upgrade my seat to an exit row with tons of leg room. Granted there was plenty of leg room but the seat was extra narrow to give room for an emergency exit if necessary. I'm not huge but I barely fit in the seat. It was an uncomfortable squeeze which of course got worse as the flight continued. I complained to an attendant that the seat was too small and he had no remedy. If I was a few pounds heavier it would have been impossible. You'd think they would warn a customer of the narrower seat. It's so obvious that it's all about profit for the airlines which sickens me."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "On time departure and landed a little early"
Cons: "Seats should recline more More food options"
Pros: "the ground crew gave me an express pass to navigate pass the Summer Holiday TSA queues. Was worried I was going to miss flight. So that’s was super good of ANA ground staff at LAX!"
Cons: "The WiFI did not work the whole flight."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Cons: "Overall a good flight LAX- IAD"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable in economy plus."
Cons: "Bigger screens. More options for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "How much do United Engineers get paid? They can’t figure out how to make the last row recline? And why was this particular flight not able to let me select a seat?"
Pros: "The crew was there when I needed them. And out of the way to help sleep. Nice service on departure with wide range of drinks and snacks. Really like entertainment on devices. Many more options of movies to watch. Easy access to restrooms with one in the front and two in the rear."
Cons: "Baggage collection at Dulles can be improved. It took over 30 minutes for the bag to arrive."
Pros: "Did not have any food so an N/A option for this category is needed."
Cons: "The exit, economy plus seat I chose was described as limited recline when it fact the chairs do not recline at all. I was so disappointed. Had I known this, I would have chosen a different seat. My neck was hurting by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Seats with little cushion that make you sit virtually upright for over 5 hours."
Cons: "Would not allow upgrade even thought seats available because my economy ticket was not appropriate for upgrade. Seems that if all those who could upgrade hf upgraded had done so, why not allow the upgrade. Would have been more money for airlines and I would have enjoyed the trip more."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable, they force you to slouch. They should support your lower back instead."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My seat was changed without my knowledge or consent and no one was able to tell me why or fix it. I spoke with a united customer service supervisor and have yet to hear from anyome about it."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful; I purchased a business class seat, which was comfortable (although I could not tell the difference between business class and coach seats)."
Cons: "The food was horrible - nothing fit for a person who is diabetic or vegan or non-dairy. And the price was outrageously high for what one received."
Pros: "Excellent experience."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Pros: "Flight was %60 full, had the last 6 rows to myself."
Cons: "Ran out of food (dinner) before they got to my row."
Pros: "Lots of beverages offered. Boarding was fine"
Cons: "Lack of food choices and cramped seating"
Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule arriving at IAD"
Pros: "Nothing, I hope they at least served some snacks."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats , struggled to sleep during my whole journey."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late and the internet did not work very well"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew were pleasant and polite. I was a little surprised that the pilot announced they wanted to leave early; there were a couple of announcements about that while we were boarding. When we arrived at LAX there wasn't a gate available, because we were early, so I don't think we gained anything other than a feeling of being herded quickly."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited; Friends and Big Bang reruns plus some music videos. According to the app, these don't work on Windows 8, which is what I had. The seats are cramped with very little tilt. I had an aisle seat and was hit by nearly everyone walking by, even though it wasn't a rough flight. I would rather not fly with this airline; I don't see anything that they do that would encourage my return business. Frankly, I've had better flights on Southwest!"
Pros: "That the pilots and plane made the trip safely."
Cons: "Most of the crew was unfriendly. A cross country flight with not a meal covered by an exorbitant ticket fare! One way did not offer any video entertainment except for extra charges!"
Pros: "No complaints really. The staff was incredible. The snacks were great. (Free & otherwise) Free non alcoholic beverages. It was a smooth ride I got on and off quickly. (15 min"
Cons: "The price of Wi-Fi. The price of on flight entertainment. Nothing for free, but that's no big deal cause I came prepared."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "We had a long delay with the cabin so I missed my next flight."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing all travel is ok."
Pros: "The crew loading us didn't prepare properly before loading passengers. They called group #s together instead of one at a time. Which resulting in someone with a lower boarding # having to check their bag because their wasn't enough overhead space. Flight attendants were very rude when approached by the problem."
Pros: "From the time of my arrival at LAX the staff was great and kept things moving right alone for me. Almost no waiting at all. The in flight staff was awsome and cheerful and very helpful and observant."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat. I choose my seat too late so that was all that was available."
Cons: "The overhead bins were so full that I needed to put my backpack under the seat. That meant that the already-cramped seat was even more cramped. In addition the seat did not recline because it was next to an exit row. It was a red eye and I could not get comfortable enough to sleep. Also, the fact that the screen brightness control was located on top of the seat arm meant that my neighbor's arm kept turning my screen on and increasing the brightness while my neighbor was asleep."
Cons: "selection of tv and movie options on the flight"
Pros: "The plane boarded smoothly and on time"
Cons: "The flight attendants ran over my foot with the cart and they kept bumping people as they went down the isle. I don't blame them for bumping into the passengers as much as the aisles being too narrow. The worst part, however, was the television. On my flight to California two weeks ago we had free television and movies. On the flight today we couldn't get anything without paying eight dollars. Ridiculous!!!"
Pros: "Free movies!"
Cons: "Inside the cabin still have rooms but they force me to checked the cabin bag in. And it has deep scars on it. Try to fix it but cannot!!"
Cons: "Letting a passenger who is vomitting in the waiting area on the flight."
Pros: "It was comfortable and crew was friendly."
Cons: "The tv screens were so bright it was hard to sleep."
Pros: "...I got the standby flight....I guess that's cool..."
Cons: "My red eye was delayed35 minutes because of wheel replacement making it impossible for me to make my40 some odd minute layover and I had to burn up hours of my vaca in an airport and reschedule a pick up."
Pros: "I liked everything overall Service Attention Boarding Crew Food, snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Price should include WiFi or at least mention it at ticket purchase so that WiFi service can be purchased. Some trips are budget based and any extra expenditures may unbalance a vacation. I don't mind paying upfront when purchasing tickets but having my wife look at me while I'm about to purchase WiFi for the trip made me uneasy. Thanks"
Pros: "I liked the plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The first TSA lady was confused and caused us to stand in 3 different lines for check in. Another TSA person stepped in and helped us get through quick and we were able to make it on time to our gate."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Pros: "They did not care"
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Cons: "Bad Service over all."
Pros: "the flight was fine, not too turbulent,"
Cons: "the amount of space was limiting on the return flight, I'm 5'11" and its just not enough room."
Cons: "Excellent 5 star"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Spicy food and messy bathroom"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
