Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding and timelines"
Cons: "The seating was small and tightly packed"
Cons: "Flight was hot"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a heads up about needing to shuttle to the remote parked aircraft at the Seattle airport. The process itself was fine but everyone was just confused on what was happening and it’s always hard to hear the announcements via PA"
Pros: "Flight from New Orleans to Seattle was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "Since Alaska Air used an aircraft from Seattle to return to Seattle, mechanical issues created a seven-hour delay in departure. Alaska expected us to remain at the gate, even though they had no intention of replacing the aircraft that would take 5 hours to arrive ONCE it eventually left Seattle. Upon arrival in Seattle, we were told we could only continue to Anchorage by splitting up, each of us taking a different flight. I checked with gate agent because had received notification of ONE of my three bags being on the carousel at Seattle, rather than going to Anchorage. She assured me all three bags were going to Anchorage. Arriving there 19 hours after our appearance at New Orleans Airport, we found one of our bags had indeed been left in Seattle. 8 hours later, still no bag or call. Good thing there are a dozen Seattle to Anchorage flights per day."

Pros: "Flying home"
Cons: "Drunk passengers"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."

Cons: "They cancelled my flight 2 days before departure and attempted to book me on another one that was unrealistic for me to make. This forced me to drive the 10 hours home-resulting in me missing a half day of work.

Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"

Best they could they could do was get me on and next to the 4 year. Dad and 9 year old separated. Get on the he flight and the wifi is down so no on fl Got entertainment. Just really bad all the way around."

Pros: "Newer plane, extra overhead storage."
Cons: "Alaska's free inflight entertainment options are poor."

Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered.

Cons: "I was shy about 45 min of boarding my flight. I didn't want to do self check out because I wanted to make sure my Itinerary was right so I went to a clerk. She did my boarding pass by verifying who I was and by my Id and printed out. I then go to security they asked for my Id and boarding pass. I gave it to them and she was like Ingrad is not your name doesn't match your ID. I said no it doesn't your going to have to go back up and get my boarding pass redone again. I was Furious and frustrated because I didn't want to miss my flight over a mix up from one of your Clerks and at the time she never asked me if I wanted a window seat or not . This made for a bad experience going to Atlanta but I was grateful that I didn't miss my flight."

Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!!

Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."

Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."

Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."

Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"
Pros: "We didn’t crash"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Pros: "On time departure, no kinks, good seats."
Cons: "Gate changes"
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."

Pros: "I had an excellent flight, really US NAVY we all fly awesomely. Thank You."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "The United flight out of LaFayette left late. We told them we had a connecting flight to Phoenix. They told us to "run". We ran about a half mile to the other gate for them to say we were too late. So yeah stuck overnight in Houston and not sleeping in my own bed tonight and missing work tomorrow morning. Not acceptable."
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "I'm not a frequent flyer so I can only compare to my 2 United trips (1 last year and the most recent) but the experience was great. Thanks"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."
Pros: "The flights were all on time, we had no problem getting through TSA, despite the fact that the airport tonight open until 4 AM for our 530 departure from Lafayette, Louisiana . United agents were there to get us through quickly at 4:15 AM. Because we were being met in Managua at noon and moving in with families that afternoon, there was a little margin for error."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "The time of departure was 5:30 AM, and I was concerned that we'd have trouble with TSA, competing with other early morning flights at a small airport whose terminal only opens at 4 AM. But the United ticket counter handled us efficiently and we were seated in the boarding area at 4:25."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Everything went smoothly and we arrived in Nicaragua on time and the rest of our complicated plans for the day went perfectly. And that wouldn't have happened if we had run into glitches."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
Cons: "The rush of services provided was unbearable. The passenger seated next to me spilled his drink trying to move sudden as to make sure i wouldn't miss my short window of opportunity to dispose of drink containers. The passengers being prodded on almost as if herded on three plane were rushing everyone down the aisle. The frantic seating procedure caused me to bash my head into the overhead causing now days later a bloody scrape on my forehead."
Pros: "Leg room was extremely Worth the seating upgrade. I’ve honestly never had that much leg room before. It was totally worth paying extra!"
Pros: "Regular airplane, with a but > average leg room."
Cons: "Nickle & Dimed for everything, including ADS! when trying to print boarding passes."
Pros: "$29 upgrade to bigger seat."
