Cons: "The plane doesn't have TV's"

Cons: "The pilot didn’t seem to know why maintenance reports were taking so long, which he was very vocal about.

Pros: "The crew was really nice & the Alaska check in was really helpful tp make sure I went to the right area."

After they called the back from rows 20 & beyond a few mins later a whole group of people came running over & got in line, then another wave of people came running over & got in line. Then they called for the rest to board but there was only about 5 people. So we ended up being the last one on."

Cons: "55min wait on the after landing. Another hr to get bags. Roughly 2 hr delay. Also, having the return to SeaTac after taking off due to mechanical failure. Rrrr! 4 cancellations thanks to the snow and the port of Seattle with their "Regulations""

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I did not receive notice or a page of my flight leaving Boise. I was not in the airport long after arriving from Reno and I missed my original flight and I was right in front of the gate."

Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding. Flight crew was great. Everything was on time!"

Pros: "The flight was great and very relaxing."
Cons: "There actually wasn't anything I could say I dislike about it."

Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."

Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."

Cons: "Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side."

Cons: "Both Copenhagen and New York need to go a better job on the flow of passengers through Passport control."

Pros: "The service on plane was great and so was the opportunity to check luggage, although I was happy I didn't have to."
Cons: "Boarding from DTW to LAX, we had to stand for a long time on the jetway and it was really cold. It was the holding place after they checked my ticket. Otherwise, it was a great experience flying Delta."

Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said. It was a beautiful day and the crew was ready to go, but we all sat for a long time before being allowed to leave Madison. It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"
Cons: "on time departure"

Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."

Cons: "... on top of that I kindly requested to speak with a supervisor and i was denied it. As a customer I deserved that. I would a ticket with Aerolineas and nowhere it said it was delta. I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."

Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Could not get the delta Wi-Fi to work. Also my seat nearphone jack was broken."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine, boarded on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "A pet peeve of mine is having to check my carry on. They said the overhead bins were all completely full, so I checked my bag at the gate. Come to find out, there were a few spaces left and it wasn't necessary. Really annoying."

Pros: "Everything went as planned!"

Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."

Pros: "I dont like that you change my flight and I have to wait 8 hours at the airport to flight to Mexico City"

Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"

Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."

Cons: "They wouldn’t accommodate with seating and I couldn’t sit with the people I came with. Also they served almonds and I’m allergic. The guy sitting next to me requested almonds causing my eyes to swell and my throat to close"

Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay for bags and headphones."

Pros: "Good in general."

Pros: "Boarding and staff were excellent. Plane was clean."
Cons: "I was unhappy with the seating arrangements. I could not upgrade my seats because I booked through a third party. If I’m willing to pay for my upgrade then it should be allowable. I don’t like seating in the rear of the plane!"

Pros: "Nothing Special"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"

Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"

Cons: "3.5 hours late."

Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."

Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."

Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."

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

Pros: "Great flight!"

Pros: "I always feel that the flight attendants on Delta truly care about your flight experience. The smile, the attentiveness, the thoroughness and giving you the attention you desire."
Cons: "Ran out of bananas before they got to me, no big deal and it looks like Delta is getting healthier options every year."

Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."

Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."

Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."

Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"
Cons: "Good staff on the plane very sweet like. Actually arrived early. Thought we would get breakfast on the flight from Madison Wisconsin to New York City."

Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Pros: "Nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Both legs of the flight were delayed, requiring long stays on the tarmac."

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."

Cons: "Second flight was sold out and it was hot inside the plane the entire time."

Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."
Cons: "Paying first class fare buys a couple of additional inches of space, but nothing more. There's nothing really first class about it."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Plane was too warm. Once again I was next to a larger person in a middle seat. This is as much airlines fault as it is the person. As Americans get bigger seats keep getting smaller. Internet stopped working on the flight."

Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Be on time. Run planes that aren’t constantly breaking down."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Not run late, have entertainment on board and provide better snacks."

Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"

Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."

Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."

Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 1/2 hrs causing missed meetings"

Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."

Pros: "Everything was good. Bear in mind flight was under 1 hour and I slept the whole time."

Cons: "No food on the International flight from Kingston to Miami."

Pros: "Service and boarding was smooth and friendly."

Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."

Cons: "My flight was 7:45AM from JFK to ANU I got into airport at 6:30AM But AA refused to me take on board. They said flight gate is closed."

Pros: "On time, kept informed."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"

Cons: "No in seat entertainment. Just drop down lCD panels for shows."

Cons: "Need to change up the videos accessable by WiFi."

Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."

Cons: "Seat space very narrow and uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."

Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."

Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"

Cons: "Lots of time changes. 1 piece of luggage sent wrong destination."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seats are too small!!!"

Cons: "I am million miler in Korean air. It's a seven star airlines"

Pros: "Gave us plenty of food and entertainment"
Cons: "the touchscreen for the inflight entertainment wasn't working properly - slow/unresponsive on the right side - and the announcements were deafening over headphones"

Pros: "The entire plane crew to the ground crew did their best with a situation that was out of their control. The luggage door would not close, so we had an apps 4 hour delay"
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "The flight out of Dallas was delayed. We hustled to our last gate and the person was incredibly rude about last call a d is just arriving to the gate..."

Cons: "As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water."

Cons: "seating was very uncomfortable crew was extremely rude no entertainment at all for the 5 hours flight"

Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "When your on your honeymoon it sure would be nice to have a seat next to my husband like we requested."

Pros: "at least flights were on time. 20 minutes delay is not bad."

Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"

Pros: "I like that they have complimentary snacks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above comments"

Pros: "on time..."

Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth. But apparently not enough and then she was loudly talking to the other flight attendants about it. One told me “I was perfectly fine.”"

Pros: "The crew was helpful accommodating, the flight was smooth and it was just a very pleasant experience overall"

Cons: "Seats are REALLY small"

Pros: "Boarded on time in challenging weather in Chicago. Got to Orlando on a day we could well have had problems getting a plane with the weather."
Cons: "The seat was the usual uncomfortable coach seat."

Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "no crew to unload plane, ended up sitting on runway for 1 hour + at RDU, at 1:00 AM"

Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "Just a couple passengers slow to get suitcases in overhead slowed people down. Nothing United needed to fix. You all were great. Loved the flight attendants’s humor too."

Cons: "Not on time, flight got cancelled and they just rebooked to the next day with no support for overnight stay, rental, etc."

Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."

Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"

Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Every time I paused my movie, it was difficult to resume it. I couldn't watch the last half at all."

Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."

Pros: "Cheap tix"

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 8 hours. We boarded and unboarded the plane 3 times. Why didn't they just cancel the flight? I missed my connecting flight. No food or beverage service. Didn't even let us use the airplane bathroom after a long delay. I paid to check my luggage and they LOST it and sent it to the wrong airport."

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "Half-hour flight, early to destination, which gave us plenty of time for our connecting flight."
Cons: "Why pay extra for baggage? This should be included in the ticket price -- which incidentally was not cheap!"

Pros: "Short flight"

Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."

Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."

Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"

Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"

Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."

Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"

Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."

Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."

Pros: "Getting a seat in economy plus! (But I think that happened because I had trouble using the online seat booking process and couldn't get a seat assignment till I got to the gate for my Albany flight, probably the only seat available) also liked arriving early in Albany."
Cons: "Arriving at the end of terminal C and having to trek to the end of terminal B for my connecting flight. Supposedly a one hour window, but by the time I got off, and made that enormous trek, no time to get a meal. Going to Madison flights left from almost adjoining gates. Lovely!"

Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"

Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"

Cons: "Missed it due to delays"

Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."

Pros: "On time..nice staff"

Cons: "no outlets, no tv, no wifi"

Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. Flight attendant has a rock star!! Did her job above and beyond what I have seen in the past."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Convinunce"
Cons: "United airlines crew said that the plane had on board computer problems and then the crew said they couldn't fly because they were timed out on hours and we sat for 3 hrs in the plane only to here that they cancelled the flight and I had to scramble to find another flight to get to my destination"

Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"

Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."

Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."

Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"

Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."

Pros: "The price, fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Both flights had mechanical problems, causing delays, the wait for luggage back in New York, over25 minutes"

Pros: "Got to check 2 carry on pieces for free because too many people had carry on bags. We had paid to check one bag and would have to pick it up anyway, so checking extra pieces was not a problem and actually was very much appreciated."
Cons: "15 minutes late in taking off because an airline associate failed to close out a screen on the computer. It took too long to figure out the problem."
