Cons: "A baby on board was screaming and crying the entire flight"

Pros: "the seat was comfortable and the plan appeared to be clean"
Cons: "an entire can of soda instead of just 1/2 glass, entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew was attentive to a couple of issues with families (not my issues, but could have affected customers traveling alone adversely)."
Cons: "Plane was delayed in Seattle, but there was no notification from Alaska. I found out through Kayak and didn't have as short a connection as I thought I would."

Cons: "We got in later than estimated."

Pros: "Pilots did a great job flying the approach to minimums and landing on a slick runway without missing a beat!"
Cons: "The snack. A salty alternative to those so-so cookies would be great. Maybe a high quality dark chocolate dipped pretzel? Vegan, please! Thanks!"

Pros: "Everything went very well, no food or entertainment so can’t rate. Left early and arrived early, great flight"

Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "would have loved a soda not juice and it seems like the turbulance is always bad"

Cons: "Plane was freezing!"

Pros: "Crew great. Flight on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Appreciated the complimentary beer/wine"
Cons: "Scrunched seats"

Pros: "Everything was smoothe from the time I got to the airport from check in to boarding. Flight was short and pilot warned us about a possible bit of rough air before we ever took off."
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller and smaller while prices are growing exponentially. These seats are even smaller than United flights, and they had next to no padding."

Pros: "New plane"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants...quick service for beverage."
Cons: "Plane was loud and small"

Pros: "Short and sweet."

Pros: "Friendly, punctual"
Cons: "Small seats"

Cons: "Great short flight."

Pros: "Alaska tried to keep us informed after technical issues forced a three-hour delay in the flight. This included communication, snacks, and compensation. Given the circumstances, the ground crew performed well. The cabin crew did a great job."
Cons: "The technical issues, which caused a number of follow-on issues (over-fueling the plane), was preventable. But ultimately, they solved the problem and got us safely to Spokane."

Cons: "3 times in the last 10 years i have had flights with this airline from portland twice an seattle once everytime they have some excuse about air crews an the flights leave 2 hours late after a long layover this has been a problem for a long time if i knew the right people like in the faa to call i would . honestly i seriously recommend to do not fly this air line to spokane unless you are desperate .once ok twice wait a second three times two different citys there is something here an it need fixed yesterday"

Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Weather and pilot delays kept us in Seattle about an hour and a half longer than we were supposed to be. 1120pm flight actually left at 1am. Tried to find an earlier flight once we knew it was delayed the first time. No other options and then it delayed again. Part of travel I suppose and the crew was nice, just was ready to be home."

Pros: "On time. Friendly staff."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was oversold from the get go so there was a constant request for volunteers to take a later flight and voucher. At boarding time it was announced there was a mechanical delay for 30 min. Then another 30 min. Then another 30 min. Eventually it was announced that another plane with 20 fewer seats would be used and volunteers were requested again. After being awake over 24 hours a very miserable end to a trip."

Pros: "The staff was great."
Cons: "We went through very serious turbulence. The landing was very rough."

Cons: "Traveling alone with my 7 mo infant. Boarded the plane and got all settled for our quick flight, just to be told that we all had to deplane due to mechanical issues. So, had to pack up all our baby stuff, grab our gate checked car seat and stroller, go to another gate, and board again. After taxiing for about 40 min, we finally took off (when we should have been landing). Definitely prepped bottles and diaper bag for a one hour flight and had an antsy baby by the time we landed. Totally understand that mechanical issues come up and am glad we were safe, but would have been much appreciated if we didn't have to board, deplane, and then board again."

Pros: "freq of flights"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Everyone was so friendly."

Pros: "Even though there was a delay because incoming plane was delayed, the staff kept us updated and boarded the passengers as soon as possible."

Cons: "Flying on an old tiny jet"

Pros: "The gate agents, flight attendants and flight crew were polite, professional and efficient."

Pros: "Stop"
Cons: "MY BAG IS GONE"

Pros: "um...I got home?"
Cons: "Ugh where to start. First my flight from Oakland was delayed an hour, and while they did rebook me a flight (with a 3-hour layover in Seattle), they couldn't keep me in a first-class seat and didn't offer anything to compensate for that. This was my first time (and probably last time) treating myself to a first-class flight, and I was kind of looking forward to that seat...although I understand if flights are full.. When I arrived (an hour late) in Seattle, the gate was shown as N2, about ten thousand miles away from my debarking gate in the C section. After walking halfway there, I stopped at an Alaska desk to AGAIN verify info and ask if someone could PLEASE CHECK and see if I could keep my first-class seating, since I PAID for one originally and the delay was airline-based. They blandly told me the flights were full and everyone had checked in already, and then mentioned that the gate had been changed BACK to C section, so hike back another 5000 miles to where I started. Wait three hours. I did check in at the gate as well, yet again, to beg with my best smiley-face and see if the girls could find me a first class spot or put me on standby, since I PAID for it. They said, sadly, no it's all full and checked in. Wait and wait. When I finally did board, I noticed that the info board said that "two upgrade requests" had been filled. What? Seriously? Is that MY FIRST CLASS SEAT YOU JUST GAVE SOMEONE? *frowns slightly* Walked through the already-seated first-class cabin, noticing that TWO OF THEM are empty. I was seated in the middle between a regular dude and this woman who is apparently running her company and having a conference call loudly on her phone, right in my ear. So yes, we understand: She's important. After sitting for a few minutes, I finally buzzed an attendant, who finally arrived, and asked her AGAIN, if she could please check if there any first class seats open, because that is what I PAID FOR and I'd appreciate finishing my trip as it was origanally booked. She said she'd check. AND THEN DISAPPEARED FOREVER. Never did see her again. A few minutes later, yet another attendant walked down the aisle with a clipboard, checking for open seats and I'm thinking she's coming to tell me that yes, there's been an opening and one of those 2 empty seats is mine and please go ahead and move. But no. She walks on by and says something about adding more standby people to some empty seats. I'm literally biting my tongue. Then, before I can say anything, these TWO GUYS come flailing down the gangway and bail into the two lovely EMPTY first-class seats in front of me. *scowl* I'm sorry, but unless they were late getting to the plane, and those were actually their seats (could be true), this whole thing was handled very strangely. I never fly first class anyway, and I understand delays and full flights, but it would have been nice to have anyone even attempt to help me finish my trip in the class that I had PAID FOR."

Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "No service. The chime in the cabin is obnoxiously loud - startling at times."

Pros: "It was fast."
Cons: "The crew was rude, it was so unpleasant"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothink"

Pros: "Flight was on time and everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Everything went exactly on schedule, all good."
Cons: "Captain said they were expecting heavy turbulence, no service that flight. It was actually one of the more smooth flights I've taken in the last 20 years. I guess it's hard to know exactly what to expect weather wise."

Cons: "30 min delay"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I"

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "Fellow passenger that would not shut up"

Pros: "Very smooth process."

Pros: "Let me tell you , I could not say enough good about these two ladies on this flight. By the time I got to Spokane they had restored my faith that , there are people who work on the airlines that are kind not grumpy! And know how to make you feel welcome. I am an auctioneer and travel doing sales , and when you only cater to your (FIRST CLASS) people as on the first leg of this flight it is pretty sad!"

Pros: "It was great, professional, short."

Cons: "I was really surprised that economy seats were not blocked off for COVID. They are tight enough as it is and I used SkyMiles to upgrade my seat and sat in a seat that was no different from economy and sat next to someone as well."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and very clear about masks."

Pros: "Wouldn’t know about the crew. Short flight and didn’t see them enough to comment"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Boarding was a fast and smooth process. Flight attendants were there to help with carry on luggage if needed. Always nice and do their best."

Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "It was a good expiriance traveling with delta!"

Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"

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

Pros: "The crew served things exactly as scheduled. They went out of their way to help passengers individually."
Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."

Pros: "Everything was as expected. Few delays but weather related and was only about 90 minutes"
Cons: "Reclining seats"

Pros: "United Airlines culturally has a very big issue. The crews are not friendly and the seating is awful."

Pros: "That there were TVs on the seats to watch and it was quick boarding"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything it’s perfect"

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"

Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing with seats not being assigned ahead of time"

Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"

Cons: "Upgraded to comfort, I’ve never sat in a better seat. The crew was all very polite, informative and friendly. Quick and easy flight. Thank you!!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The pplane was two hours late to depart due to technical issues."

Pros: "Got me there Safely"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements... at all! By flight attendant or pilot"

Cons: "SeAts"

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: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was anything I didn’t like about the flight, everything was great!"

Cons: "The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor"

Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"

Pros: "Personnel was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Delayed half hour and no leg room"

Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"

Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."

Pros: "SLC ground gate crew was awesome."

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: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."

Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"

Cons: "We were delayed due to the air conditioning not working. So, it was a tad warm in the cabin. It would've been nice to have someone coming around with water making our delay a little more comfortable."

Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"

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

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: "On Time"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"
Cons: "Inwasny aware my small pocket knife wouldn't be accepted at the airport even though it has been cleared before and the staff was a bit rude about it.the food"

Cons: "Never again!"

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: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."

Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"

Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"

Pros: "Relatively painless."
Cons: "I do not like the seating and the need to be on a regional jet for more than an hour. Delta should think about passenger comfort when they consider their bottom line. You'll lose me as a customer."

Cons: "Sat in the plane for 90 minutes due to door issue. No snacks offered."

Pros: "Very comfy, roomy seats. Helpful, welcoming staff. Great take-off and landing—very smooth."
Cons: "It would be nice to have TV’s in the seats for longer flights."

Pros: "I had a middle seat and I was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "This was a 4 hour flight and they had no food -- really????"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding. Nice crew"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose a seat with suncountry, which I chose not to do. Also have to pay for food, which I did not do so unable to attest for the quality"

Cons: "It now costs money to select ANY seat, to have ANY luggage whether it is carry-on or checked. The plains are old and poorly maintained (if I wasn't moved, the person in the seat in front of me would have crushed me by his constant backward leanings.) No longer a viable option to fly."

Pros: "I WILL LIKE TO PROVIDE THE AIRLINES SMALL SNACKS."

Cons: "No free snack"

Pros: "Service was great everything was easily taken care of absolutely no complaints"

Pros: "Charges on everything"
Cons: "I got charged money for everything luggage to selecting a seat online. Prices should be included on the initial pricing and not charge customer money to select seating online. Online check in is for the inconvenience and is a way to not overwhelm gate check agents. Not for airlines to make money ."

Cons: "Bags take for.......ever to comeout, 20 mins is crazy compared to other airlines, alaska has your bags waiting for you when you get to the carousel. I guess We get what you pay for"

Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "No tv or charging port for phones"

Pros: "Carry on luggage is now $40 per"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."

Cons: "Waiting almost two hours for agents for boarding to appear!!"

Pros: "The crew was great. I only gave 5 stars for comfort because the was one empty seat and I could stretch out a bit. I didn't have any food or rent a digital player. The flight was smooth and I loved that it was nonstop."
Cons: "Boarding was quite long and everybody was backed up the whole length of the jetway."

Cons: "Not being able to choose seats"

Cons: "Our plane was at the gate well ahead of boarding. We boarded the plane on time and were actually ahead of schedule. We started taxing out to the runway and had to return to the gate because of a warning light. We had to stay on the plane for an extra hour while the light was fixed. These sorts of things should be fixed while at the gate, even before we board. The comfortability of sitting on a plane during boarding is not good."

Cons: "Both entertainment rental and food cost high. Need to be consistent enforcing luggage bag size allowed as carry on."

Cons: "Handheld device rental too expensive and tv show selection to limited for my interests. I brought my own device and just wanted wifi to watch my shows on netflix."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by 2 hours with no notification, missed connecting flight, no apology given and worst seats on plane were booked for us. Had to wait over 5 hours for next flight which also ended up being delayed and no option of discounted upgrade even though 9 of the 12 first class seats were available."

Pros: "On time as scheduled"
Cons: "No entertainment and snacks"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No peanuts"

Pros: "Landing."

Pros: "Seating in first class."
Cons: "Food: need vegetarian option"

Pros: "Efficient on boarding."
Cons: "Few Flights statements are too push. People are shutting down their device and told shut off now when they're in a middle of doing it. One person told her I am doing it now. Stop making Sdumtion. Really look and listen."

Pros: "From the check in desk to the flight crew, every employee we came in contact with was friendly, knowledgeable and made our travel experience enjoyable. At a time when customer service isn't always consistent or a priority, it was nice to experience it from all of the Sun Country employees we came across."

Pros: "seats are comfortable, foot room good"

Pros: "Couldn't be smoother. Ahead of schedule."
Cons: "No meal"

Pros: "The last three times I've taken suncountry, I have not been able to check in online. I had to come to the airport early, and stand in a line to get my boarding pass. I wonder if this is some way to get you to buy an upgrade seat?? They said they were having computer trouble, but after three months and three tries, I'm not planning on flying them again."

Pros: "Service, very nice attendants, availability of entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm"

Cons: "The gates switched and if the plane could be loaded from the back that would be awesome."

Pros: "We like flying Sun Country generally because they use the Humphrey terminal and the crew are usually very pleasant"
Cons: "Seats are way too close together - computer site wouldn't let us pick seats and we were placed right in front of exit row so we couldn't lean seatbacks rearward - took us 2 days to recover from back pain"

Pros: "The assistance and person driving wheelchair was vry good n helpful in Minneapolis airport."
Cons: "There was no one to assist with pushed the wheelchair. After leaving us till the Gate, we kept waiting for half an hour. Nobody turned up so I had to push the wheelchair myself. That was a really sad and unfortunate experience!"

Pros: "On time!"

Pros: "Inexpensive."
Cons: "Dirty plane. Small overhead bins."

Pros: "We enjoy flying Sun Country and find it comfortable. The staff is very courteous and it's very good value for the money."

Pros: "Thank you for no carry on luggage fees! And I also appreciate to boarding process - straightforward and simple as it should be!"
Cons: "My only compliant us their Iano free food and food options are limited and expensive."

Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Check in staff and flight crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were awful."

Pros: "Quick Flight."
Cons: "Little to no amenities."

Pros: "My name was incorrect on my passenger details, and when I called customer service, the reservation rep was very helpful in clearing the matter."
Cons: "It was a 20 minute wait to get through to a rep, but it's undertstandable for an airline."

Cons: "The website offers exit row for purchase then has an error message when you try to do so. I tried about 12 times. Then I called and was able to get an exit row seat and complete my check in for the flight. But that was a hassle."

Cons: "Can't do online check in without picking a seat, why don't airplanes board from back to front? There would be fewer traffic jams."

Pros: "Overall the trip was excellent! Service, timeliness, staff, ... All excellent!"

Pros: "The flight was turbulent and the seatbelt sign was on most the way to Seattle, but passengers kept getting up. The crew did a terrific job of reminding the passengers of the safety issue involved in moving around the cabin when the seatbelt sign was on. They had a lot more patience than I would have."

Pros: "-Speed of service -Food at the terminal -friendly service of flight staff"

Cons: "I had to cancel my flight due to a medical emergency and Sun Country Air would not refund. They basically said "too bad", sorry to hear that, and I ate the cost of my entire ticket. I will never fly this airline again nor will I recommend it to anyone."

Pros: "OK but should always make sure the plane delays are minimal."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic with a near capacity passenger load, but did not delay flight; that was due to a civil disturbance at HHH."

Cons: "I would like to have a wifi capability, I also would prefer the ability to print boarding passes at home."

Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"

Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."

Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More drinks"

Cons: "Better snacks."

Cons: "Wider seating"

Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."

Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."

Cons: "Everything. My first leg of this trip was the worst flight I had ever been on and this leg lived up to that standard"

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

Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"

Pros: "Boarding process was really unsmooth here as well. Little delayed. Thankfully this crew was really polite. And not screaming at people this one flight."
Cons: "Ether bursting process."

Cons: "One crew member is not particularly helpful when passengers needed assistance."

Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"

Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "We sat on the taxi runway for almost an hour waiting for our turn. Then some rain came and the captain didn’t want to take off. I can understand snow, but rain?"

Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."

Pros: "The fight was not over crowded."

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."

Pros: "Flight was great. Crew was very attentive and the flight was under booked giving my wife and I an empty middle seat. The entertainment was vast consisting of movies and TV shows to pass the time."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"

Cons: "No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to."

Pros: "We got there safe"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour because of a flat tire."

Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."

Cons: "no charging station"

Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"

Pros: "Lovely service, but less comfortable plane... nothing terrible though"

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"

Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to power up digital devices"

Pros: "Delayed"

Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."

Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"

Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."

Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."

Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "1 hour late"

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."

Pros: "left and arrived on time. helpful staff. no glitches. reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "i did not rate food and entertainment because i did not partake."

Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."

Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"

Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"

Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."

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

Cons: "2 different attendants spilled drinks all over me and my carry on"

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.”"

Cons: "Super small and crowded flight, no safe distance whatsoever. A particular older flight attendant was cranky."

Cons: "Way too crowded on the plane"

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"

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: "This was the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had. The plane was so hot we were sitting there sweating the entire time. It made it impossible to sleep or focus on a movie or anything, and it made the flight feel 10 times longer."

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

Pros: "Able to use my frequent flier miles."
Cons: "Boarding, comfort, de-planing."

Pros: "made it home safe"
Cons: "Boarding protocol. we were traveling together and were placed on opposite ends of the aircraft. very cramped seats. would prefer not to fly them again."

Pros: "No problems and the crew was friendly and helpful."

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

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment. I like when the planes have the TV's so you can watch."

Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptionally great! Gave out free drinks and snacks for no reason."

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."

Cons: "I was very cold!"

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: "kept on delaying and didn't take off until almost 3 hrs later"

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"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "IF A PASSENGER CANT FIT IN ONE SEAT MAKE THEM BUY A SECOND. I SPENT 2 HOURS WITH SHREK SITTING ON TOP OF ME"

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: "Very nice crew who were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours for this flight, after a very long overseas flight just about did me in. Wish they had more than one or two flights a day from Denver to Spokane."

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

Pros: "Our departure was delayed by a pump problem of some kind. Then the pilot aborted a takeoff because of another error. Needless to say, we were a bit nervous."

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: "The flight was quick and painless"
Cons: "Yeah, it was a bit frustrating trying to rush and hustle from gate to gate with how many times they changed the location!!"

Pros: "Delays seem to be frequent with united and the staff is always in a bad mood. Will not fly again with them, I flew one leg on a different airline so I wouldn't miss my international connection as they wanted to delay 6 hours!!!"

Cons: "Didn't happen"

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

Pros: "It was Great Thank you"

Pros: "There was nothing good to like about this leg of my trip."
Cons: "I paid for first class and It was the worst flight I have ever been on, sat in the plane at the gate for over an hour with a huge women that was brought up to1st class from economy, she smelled, she was a lush. There was a child that did not quit crying the entire flight, I could not get off the plane fast enough, there was nothing1st class about the flight, we needed fuel after we boarded, then it was a cargo issue,and then it was airport, we should not have been on the plane until the plane was ready for flight.very poor planning you should be embarrassed about the flight."

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

Pros: "Pretty typical domestic flight. The crew on this flight definitely seemed tired and "over it". The one attendant stood blankly, staring off to the back of the plane robotically going through the safety. Far cry from the staff on my previous 10+ hour flight from Munich."
Cons: "No free entertainment whatsoever, and even though the screen reads that flights under 2 hours are $5.99, and our flight was a few minutes under 2 hours, the price was still the regular $7.99. Not worth it."

Cons: "It was so cold on this flight. Like ice cold. It wasn't just me, I traveled with 3 other people who were spread out on the plane and all of them noted the sub zero temperatures."

Pros: "On time..nice staff"

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

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and that's really all that matters. The crew was great."
Cons: "Don't know why we have to pay for entertainment. It used to be free."

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: "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."
