This is one of the better domestic carriers. I seem to always get a little more customer service. They are easy to do business with.
Pros: "The crew was friendly and made sure we were comfortable at all times. Loved the warm cookie. A nice touch! We were offered coffee immediately on entering the plane. Perfect for a early morning flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing it was cold no blankets."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. Delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "A full complément of movies to choose from"
Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."
Cons: "The flight lasted about 5 hours, but they only offered limited small snack (chip or granola bar) and some drinks. They have sandwich and other real food but it costs around $9.5. Some other airlines provide free full meal even the flight time was only 3 hours."
Pros: "Fast flight; clean cabin: tv screens at every seat"
Pros: "Everything went super smoothly"
Cons: "Wouldn’t change a thing"
Cons: "Change gate not done properly"
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: "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: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The crew was helpful, and attentive. The aircraft seemed new with very comfortable seats and personal screen entertainment."
Cons: "The check in process was very poorly organized. We arrived more than 3 hours early for our flight but there wasn’t anyone at the counter service and only one attendant giving information. We were told they would not start the check in services until an hour more. We still waited another 30 minutes. They need to change their check in process. Another suggestion is making the last row seats able to recline as well. Other than that, It would have made the flight perfect."
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: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. We were stuck on the plane after landing waiting for a set of stairs. We had to take a bus to customs area. Not sure if it’s the airline or airport but terrible customer service."
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: "Boarding smooth"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."
Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "They boarded quickly and left a little early to make sure we could use the Terminal 6 Customs - instead of Bradley!"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "All airlines where professional and on time, my trip was comfortable, I will use kayak again."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Entertainment, free movies"
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."
Cons: "Gate was occupied, made us 10 minutes late. Had to wait 30 min for buses to shuttle to Bradley / took another 20 for bags"
Cons: "We only had one drink for a 5 hour flight! Took two hours until we were finally able to get a glass of water."
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"
Cons: "We were separated...we had to try to negotiate with other passengers to trade seats so we could sit as a family. We purchased our tickets 4 months in advance, there’s no reason for us to not be sitting together!!!"
Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."
Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"
Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "When we arrived in Seattle it took over 20 min to get ramp to the plane. Long wait..."
Cons: "Gogo movie flights didnt work"
Pros: "Fly Alaska for the best servicethey upgraded us to first class because of my husband's military service"
Cons: "they upgraded us to first class because of my husband's military service"
Cons: "I requested a bag of ice because I had intense sciatica pain. I think it was caused by the hard seats, The bag of ice melted, and because it did not have a double bag the water leaked causing me to get all wet. I requested a towel and got a pack of paper napkins which were not enough to dry anything at all. I was told by staff that there were not any real towels on board. I think this is a serious problem. All this made the trip unpleasant and I got off the airplane all wet. All my clothes and coat were very wet.' Marta"
Cons: "Problems with check in took nearly an hour to resolve and I almost missed the flight as a result."
Pros: "Non stop flight from Puerto Vallarta to Portland, that is a great deal to me. I love it."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and decent legroom in Economy. Very friendly staff on flight."

Pros: "I ENJOY MY FLY AND FLY ATTENDANTS VERY NICE THANK YOU I AM HAPPY TO HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF A NICE FLY"
Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.
Check in in Cancun took at least 2 1/2hours standing in line at Delta.
Pros: "Quick flight with basic service."
Cons: "Cancun airport terrible. Take off line was 20 planes deep on run way. Horrible experience"

Pros: "Crew was great, cabin was clean"
Cons: "Wi-Fi was very spotty."

Pros: "A330 plane. I love widebodies"
Cons: "Be ontime"
Cons: "Cabin too cold and poor snacks so 1980’s."
Pros: "Had a great professional crew even the pilot walked through the plane to answer questions"
Cons: "Nothing delta returns to the top"
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Pros: "Delta service is amazing"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Do not lie to the passengers and make a lot of people check their bags when it’s empty overhead bins."
Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."
Cons: "Delta needs air conditioning on their flights"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Crew was good. It was great to be able to watch a movie, TV, or play a game to pass the time."
Cons: "More let room when someone puts back their seat."
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Really nice flight crew who braved the storm to get us home when everyone else was getting cancelled."
Pros: "Plane was nice and clean. Staff attendants were great & respectful."
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "The check-in agent was very nice and patient"
Cons: "Our flight kept on getting delays, we were seated separated, a kid was hitting my seat during the whole flight even after skiing the mother to stop her child, not sure what is the solution there but I would suggest that in your announcements in the beginning you could mention a rule of respect to others like in the movies a little subtle regulation about other passengers space respect."
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"
Pros: "Seats were very Comfortable"
Cons: "Rudeness of one of the crew members"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight attendants were very nice and professional."
Pros: "The ticket agents and other airport personnel were tremendously understanding and helpful! As a matter of fact, a few said this happens more often than it should, which is sad and shocking! Had it not been for their help this would have been much worse!!!"
Cons: "Our original flight included a connection that overlapped and needed to be changed. I brought this to the attention of Kayak/Aeromexico and the flight appeared to changed for our entire party of six. When we arrived to depart from Akron-Canton there were MAJOR issues with Delta acknowledging the change on their end. We waited at check-in for an hour and half before this was resolved. This also happened when we left Cancun and almost missed our flight. Our daughter also had to put on stand-by in Atlanta due to this fiasco. We spent another two hours working with Delta customer service trying to get her a seat on our flight back to Akron-Canton. Had we not been to Cancun airport extra early AND had our flight delayed in Atlanta we would have missed both flights. This was without a doubt the worse experience we have ever had!! It should have been caught and resolved before I ever had to get involved. I am very disappointed and unhappy with the service offered for the tickets we purchased. This was extremely stressful for my wife and kids and tarnished our vacation. This was totally and completely avoidable!!! You can and should do better to service your customers!!"
Pros: "Everything went fast & smooth"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Friendly staff. :)"
Cons: "Longer flight with no WiFi or video. :("
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: "Delayed 15 hours because of a mechanical issue, spent the night in Cancun. Customer service and communication throughout was terrible."
Pros: "We flew Delta. My husband fractured his ankle and got a cast the day before our flight to Cancun. No turning back Our seat assignments had us separated on some segments and also at window and middle seats. On all flights we were bumped up to comfort seats with an empty seat next to us for his cast and the final flight home put in an earlier flight home to avoid a six hour layover! Delta really went over and beyond expected."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an alert to our flight telling us we left from Terminal S in Atlanta. After several joyvrides on the tram we found out there is no Terminal S!"
Pros: "First class service and seats"
Cons: "Lost my bag... very frustrated. Nobody at the baggage claim would give us an answer, they said there might be more bags coming... Then they ran away. We finally wind up at the last bag office and they began the process... We still are waiting for our bag, 14 hours after reporting it missing."
Pros: "I loved that I was able to get home! The crew was nice."
Cons: "It was very very warm in the plane. The entertainment unit was lacking."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Media kept freezing. They had to reboot the system several times."
Pros: "Delta seats are comfortable and media ststem is good."
Cons: "Flight was late and the staff wasn't kind Neither at JFK gate neither on both flights. Looks like they are doing you a favor to listen to you when you ask them something."
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Cons: "Everything, I will never going to use this software anymore."
Pros: "Flight was late, lost my conection and gave me a flight for next day"

Pros: "On plane entertainment was great, along with the charger port for phones. Leg room was great, seats comfortable and even served free breakfast and gave complimentary headphones. Very nice trip."
Cons: "Not organized enough. Had to rush to second flight because 1st flight was delayed"
Pros: "Everything but the screaming babies was great."
Pros: "On time flights Boarding process Online checking"
Cons: "Seat. Seat option charges Luggage charges Food options long lines at Mexico Airport Counters"
Pros: "No hassle."
Cons: "Food was awful...did not even eat it."
Pros: "we upgraded to emergency row for free which gave us a lot of extra legroom. The flight attendants were always available. Basic drinks were complementary."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Did not have the immigration form. Had to pay panelty to get another. A checklist of documents required displayed would have been helpful. Immigration Office only accepted Pesos. I was willing to pay $40USD but they insisted on $533 Pesos, which was $31USD. Aeromexico seemed stingy on baggage weight. 22lbs max check-in."
Pros: "Sales rep understanding"
Cons: "Sales rep unable to provide compensation when company delays flight for many hours or a day"
Cons: "El vuelo fue cancelado y se tardo 5 horas en salir. Nos hicieron dormir en las bancas del aeropuerto sin indemnizacion!"
Pros: "Organized and professional instructions always in both English and Spanish. The Cancun airport is the cleanest airport you will ever see."
Cons: "Immigration in Mexico City was way too long 2+ hours in line with backed up restrooms the entire airport smelled like sewage."
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff Good beverage variety as well as food."
Cons: "The sound for the entertainment was of very low quality thus unable for us to ascertain much of the dialogues."
Cons: "The flight attendent gave my seat away and placed me in a seat where the tv was broke. The. Later I was ignored when I tried to ask for water."
Pros: "Landed safely :-)"
Cons: "No veg food option at all. I had to survive the whole journey on peanuts. Audio sockets were broken, couldn't watch TV. The tiny TV screen was too far to see as well :-("
Pros: "I found out there were no bags included after I paid, never using kayak again"
Cons: "Our terminal changed the same day we left. We got off at terminal 2 in Cancun only to pay for a taxi to take us to terminal 4. Then we left 1 hour and 45 minutes late, therefore, extending the total trip."
Pros: "I️ likedthe attention of the flight attendants in flight"
Cons: "The check in at the counter was a nightmare. While we had checked in online already we had to wait in line for over 2 hours! We arrived at the airport and got in line right away. They started calling people’s flights that were leaving in less than 20 mins and that’s when everything became a nightmare. Everyone was so disorganized and people that were leaving in less than 20 mins were put on a different line. The line we had been waiting on was put on hold but the line next to us was not so now we had to wait for all the people (which was about 70) to get checked in. As my patience ran out i went up to the counter and tried to just get my bags checked so we can be on our way to our gate and of course i get the answer that i have to wait because i still have enough time (our flight was leaving in 40 minutes). then they brought a supervisor over to tell me the same thing- there was absolutely no help. By the time we were able to go on to our gate we had exactly 20 mins until our flight left. Very unacceptable. It looked like it was everyone’s first day at work and no one knew what they were doing. we fly delta all the time and i know Aeromexico now works with delta but they need a lot more training on what customer service is all about"
Pros: "Aeromexico is great air company"
Cons: "The waiting at the airport for 3 hours when it was only for a 30 minutes flight"
Pros: "Aeromexico's fare was competitive, and they got me to my destination on time."
Cons: "Aeromexico's online check in system needs a total revamp. Trying to check in online was a nightmare. I eventually gave up. Also, they charge extra for checked luggage, like most airlines today. What's different is that they make it really difficult to pay for your bag. After I waited in line to check in and the agent confirmed my reservation, I was sent across the concourse to a separate Aeromexico office to pay for my bag, rather than simply paying at the check in desk. I was lucky I had the extra time to make it to the gate to catch my flight."
Pros: "U can watch movies for free"
Cons: "Plane was dirty"
Cons: "My nephews got to the airport 1 1/2 early to check in. They were Not promitted to board the plane. I had to buy new tickets or fly out Monday. I have insurance and was not reimbursed."
Cons: "the second part departed late ...."
Cons: "*Seat was broken and seat cushion was hard. No one in our row was comfortable. Was not aware that the row before exit row does not recline. We were in row 14. Fortunately there were some empty seats so we could move. Would not have chosen that seat if website shared that information. The TV screens came done from the ceiling so everyone had to watch same thing. Music channels only played a few songs over and over again. This plane needs to be retired or have major upgrades. Definitely an older plane."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Plane was old, seats were uncomfortable, no leg room, my seat was broken (tilted forward and when I asked if it could be fixed staff did nothing), songs repested themselves, and customs was a nightmare."
Cons: "Read comments above. The flight was tbe worst ever."
Pros: "The staff on the flights were very nice."
Cons: "I will never book through this airline again. My flight was delayed and no gate information was available to me. I had to ask several people where to go and was told several different answers. This resulted in a lot of excess walking with my luggage. The airport signs have tiny information for non Spanish speaking passengers. Never again."
Cons: "For starters, the air conditioning either wasn't working or was super slow making the flight uncomfortably hot. This is the second flight on this trip where a flight has been delayed and there is just TOO much confusion. You guys don't have enough employees guiding us to the right direction. Which caused me to miss my flight. Making me spend an awful night over night at the airport, missing work, and overall just an INCONVENIENCE. Delayed flights seem to be a common thing with your airline son ADD MORE STAFF! So ridiculous, the staff in Mexico City are useless at helping people out!!! I'm not one to complain but this was so unprofessional!"
Pros: "Service by the crew."
Cons: "The plane from Cancun to Guadalajara being extremely late. I was unable to shop in the duty free shops."
Pros: "Movie selection was pretty decent"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, flight attendant had an attitude because i asked her to help me out with my head phones. Had to ask twice because she told me to give her a minute mean while she was running her mouth with the other flight attendants in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Aeromexico is a scam. I will never travel with Aeromexico again. When we arrived in Mexico City, MX the airline changed their boarding gate without notification. We were sitting at the original gate for 2 hours only to realize they never called us to board. By the time we got to the correct gate, we were not allowed to board the plane because they said we were late. The plane left at 5:00 p.m and we arrived at the gate at 4:50 p.m. They informed us that we had to purchase new tickets which cost $370 per person. There were 4 of us. After arguing with the Aeromexico representatives and supervisor for over 5 hours and having them check their flight boards they admitted to making the mistake so they changed our flights without charging us, but now our flight leaves the next day at 6:20 a.m. and we will not get to our final destination until 4:15 p.m. So, we have to spend our night sleeping in the airport until our morning flight at no fault of our own. Their customer service is the worse and I've never ever had this kind of travel experience with any other flight. I am fed up, tired, and will be reporting this airline for fraud because many other customers have had the same experience. Never again will I travel with Aeromexico and Kayak should be ashamed to partner with this airline."
Pros: "Great staff and comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Late and no communication"
Pros: "The pilots seem to be very skilled at landing. All planes touched down very smoothly. This may be an odd observation, and no one would really mention this - but it's important to point this out."
Cons: "Overall, Aeromexico is a very poor quality airline. Flight delays meant we lost a day in Cancun - and there was little or no communication from anyone regarding next steps. There is no coordination, no organization, food and coffee were of poor quality, and it an airline to be avoided at any cost."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour waiting on connecting passengers to clear customs. Boarding was disorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "I enjoyed that my kids had a great movie selection and food."
Cons: "I absolutely found it ridiculous how they board the plane. They did it both times coming and going. They didn't call anyone by zone they just allowed anyone to board at any time so I was in row 9 and people in row 20 boarded before me. What sense did that make."
We were delayed for 4 hours and no one was giving any explanation why until I finally called. AA wasn’t updating the time on the board. The handling of boarding people was messy. Everyone coming in and taking forever to load their carry on. Just overall bad experience
Pros: "Comfort and organized"
Cons: "Entertainment, there was no tv"
Cons: "Nothing was offered or included, not even water! The crew never passed asking or offering anything. Not even when you saw them face to face. I recently took a flight of the same length with Frontier and even though you had to pay for carry on and buy the water at least they cared"
Pros: "Crews were good, seats was ok. Didn't liked the fact that we were seated way in the back of the plane, since we are an advantage members"
Cons: "If we boarded and left on time"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "They need sub titles for the movies for deaf people !!!and they need to work on there social distancing way more smh delta has no one sitting in the middle seats but American Airlines just packs the whole plane out! Smh"
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Pros: "Crew was great and tried to accommodate the best they could"
Cons: "It was really cold on both flights, they had blankets for only first class and business class. We had an open seat as well next to us and they put a person in the open seat that was drunk and 22. Not cool"
Cons: "We were early arriving on both legs of our flight, which was nice. Charlotte Airport staff was rude as usual, so nothing new there. Overall, we had a great trip."
Cons: "We left an hour late ."
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: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "The crew was slow. Granted, the plane was full and the crew had many passengers but service was slow and cursory."
Cons: "Flying economy on American Airlines is very unpleasant. The seats are too small-the aisles too narrow and the bathrooms incredibly tiny. Only 2 bathrooms in economy for a tremendous amount of passengers. I had requested a bulkhead seat because of hip surgery. I had to purchase it."
Pros: "I liked the big 787 plane and the in flight entertainment with individual TVs!"
Cons: "Not a huge fan of the captive audience announcements for the credit card and the meal pre-orders"
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The weather was terrible and the pilots crafted an excellent landing. Flight attendant was hilarious!!"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Pros: "The crew members had a good attitude, pilot in particular"
Cons: "Two cancelled flights, a dozen delays, and 14 hours of travel later I finally had to rent a car and drive home."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi"
Cons: "The crews aren’t very kind. Average service."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing extraordinary, just solid and fine"
Cons: "Nothing bad in particular. The passengers could've been more friendly, but that's not the airline's fault"
Pros: "Nice staff. Seats are comfy."
Cons: "A lot of pushy people. I think it always happens on the flights back from vacation destinations, people are burnt out and want to get home. The American airlines staff were fine, though."
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
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: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment at all, no even TV."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Pros: "Crew were relatively friendly"
Cons: "No notification that boarding was delayed No in seat entertainment Older seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Cons: "My husband is 6'5" and sitting next to him the whole flight was barely bearable."
Cons: "We bought the tickets with 1 luggage included. In the check in, the y charged us!"
Pros: "I think they should learn from other asian airlines, about Special veg meal.also more one cleans levatory."
Cons: "Nothing Other than dservice provided by Korean crew members"
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
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: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"
Pros: "It was a flight, it got me from point A to point B, but everything in between could've been much better."
Cons: "When first boarding the plane, the person I was with tried to close the shade on the window, the with frame and the first 2 pieces of glass popped out. We notified the flight attendant and his response was "can you stick your arm out the window and wave? No... ok you're fine" then we were notified the bathrooms in the middle of the plane were out of order and we could only use the bathrooms at the rear of the plane. There was no WiFi, and the audio system for the on board movies wasn't working. The flight attendants were only giving out cups of beverages and not the full can, which isnt a big deal but still looks bad on the airline considering everywhere flight with American has handed out full cans of soda. The perception was American dropped the ball on the his plane, and just didn't care to do the necessary maintenance. For the his head priced paid for the his hehe see tickets I would've expected better from a reputable airline. Needless to say we were a little disappointed."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Cons: "Ticketing agent was rude"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Cons: "Do not bring blankets!! And the staff not nice"
Pros: "Flight was early both ways. Pleasant experience"
United is on par with Spirit only l pay 4 times the amount
I really enjoyed everything
No food in this flight, should have n/a option
For an international flight back to the US. I think it went perfect, arrived on time, had a meal after take off and before arrival. Thank you.
Cons: "seats are terrible."
Pros: "Always good movies"
Cons: "Overall everything is good , with the actual situation I font think is a problem with the airline or employee"
Cons: "Boarding was extremely slow and we arrived 1 hour late"
Pros: "Crew is good"
Cons: "Delay is a problem, am late for second fly"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Security staff short with passengers"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "It was a mess from start to finish. Ridiculous lines. Ridiculous covid rules. They have us all shoulder to shoulder in tiny waiting areas then suddenly we get on line to board and have to stand six feet apart and then on the plane we are squashed all together anyway. It’s all so stupid. Not having the ability to get a boarding pass from the online app or printed made me have to wait in a line 300 people long to access the kiosk and then half of them were down. Then another line maybe 500 people long just to be allowed up the escalator to where there is another line to go through exuding checks. Nuts!!! My flight was an hour and I spent three hours online getting to it!!!"
Cons: "The boarding and social distancing being funny with the process"
Cons: "Less people because of COVID"
Cons: "The plane was extremely full. No chance of social distancing."
Cons: "Hire better competent people"
Pros: "There were only snacks, no setback entertainment"
Cons: "Add a meal and seatback entertainment"
Cons: "Counter at Asheville, point of origin for the flight, was unattended at recommended arrival time. Attendant, when he finally appeared, seemed, to this traveler at least, unengaged, abrupt, even rude, certainly not as welcoming and helpful ad other UA counter attendants at busier airports and at more demanding times. The word lazy comes to mind. The same individual handled the gate. His demeanor there was similar. If it is UA policy to leave counters unattended, an explanation should be posted; if present policy requires one individual to handle counter and gate duties, perhaps more help is needed. This experience, all the more frustrating when a passenger ruses early so as to comply with recommended arrival and boarding times, combined with the fact that the incoming flight significantly delayed AVL to Washington depart setting the tone for a mostly mediocre experience crowned by a painful trek from terminal A to terminal C to catch the connection to PVD. Not a best effort by UA. Outstanding flight and cabin crews saved the day."
Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for carry on bags as well as both flights was really bumpy."
Pros: "United is amazing. We got upgraded to business. They take good care of their frequent fliers!!"
Cons: "Nothing. Was perfect"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very friendly, very attentive and always smiling. They took great care of the passengers and in particular a woman with a crying baby. It didn't bother me at all, but I know the parents were concerned and the flight attendants were so kind and helpful. The food was truly fantastic, and served hot and with a smile. They repeatedly asked us about water, as the cabin was dry. I would give the crew an A+!"
Cons: "My husband and I have not flown for several years and have always enjoyed past flights. However, it seems as if the seats have much less leg room than years ago. I am only 5 foot 4 inches, and was very uncomfortable. My husband is 6 feet tall and he was miserable. Sleeping on this 9 hour flight would have been helpful, but due to the cramped seating, it was pretty much impossible. The little pillow and blanket did help with some back support, but I guess making more money per flight is more important than comfort."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "United has a system glitch and we were delayed. I got in around 1 am instead of 11 pm. I decide to order a glass of wine and since they don’t give receipts. I found out i was charged for 2 glasses instead of one. To top it off the co-worker i was traveling with didn’t get charged due to the inconvenience and delay. i travel a lot with United (higher status than him) and would have liked that offer (and not get charged one i didn’t order) being a mileage plus and credit card holder. I did go on line and ask for a credit and they did make it right and give me a credit."
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "They staff was friendly and they boarded efficiently."
Cons: "The worst part of the flight was the fact that they have redesigned their planes. They have put the seats even closer together and their new seats are horribly uncomfortable. The seats are made out of a hard molded plastic. There is no give and they don’t form to you back at all. Their comfort level I would rank at a zero! I had thought they may not be bad for a domestic flight as mine was international, however, I also had them for a domestic and they were equally uncomfortable. I will be checking off of United on my next flight as I can not sit in a seat this uncomfortable ever again! Try again United!!! #UnitedSeatsUncomfortable, #HorridSeats,"
Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"
Pros: "The flight actually had hot food for sale! The cheeseburger was pretty good."
Cons: "I had a really hard time getting the cabin crews' attention during boarding for a piece of safety equipment. I hit the call light, tried to catch them as the crew was distributing headphones, and the light got turned off by an off-duty flight attendant without checking that we needed something. I got it in the end with an apology from crew but I still don't feel terribly safe Also, the paid entertainment system that my neighbors purchased seemed to be down with static for a portion of the flight."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and receptive to needs on the flight."
Cons: "Baggage Claim was a nightmare. I did not receive a baggage ticket when I checked my bag in London. Part of that is my fault. I should have made sure I had one. It took an extra long time to get my bag. Everyone else had left the area from my flight and I approached the counter. The attendant at the counter was rude. She said she couldn't help me unless I had the baggage claim ticket. Which I get that, but it all comes down to how she said it to me. She went over to the carousel and said that my flights bags were still going around and at that time I saw my bag. I said there it is to her and she responds, well you can go get it yourself then. Just completely rude. It all came down to how she responded to me. I was freaking out at the prospect of my bag being lost and she responded as clipped and uncompassionately as possible."
Pros: "The movies were good - glad it was free and nice selection"
Cons: "US Pre-clearance in Dublin was ridiculous. I don't know what else to say about it. They were even holding us going down the escalator to the actual screening part. It was just one crazy queue to another. Will definitely make me think about ever going through Dublin again."
Pros: "The boarding was pretty good for this flight, seemed simple enough, everyone was pleasant. And I was near an exit, which offered sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I was disappointed by a few things... 1. The staff didn't much care to be there. They seemed distant and unconcerned, although their words were supportive. I just got off a flight from Seoul to SF, with United (892) and they admittedly stated that they were understaffed (which was completely fine) and their attitudes were much more supportive than that of the following team (486), a flight from SF to IAD. 2. I was surprised, that on a 5hr flight, they only offered a half bag of mixed items and two rounds of beverages. I was sure that they would feed us something. However, if it's not the policy, I get it...but I asked if they had anything I could purchase, the flight attendant points me to the menu pamphlet and says that I could choose from there. I asked for the Chilled Chicken with Slaw and she promptly lets me know that they only have cheeseburgers, a protein box and Cheese. For a person who's lactose intolerant, I was again disappointed by the service--why ask me to go to the menu, if you knew there were only three items you were offering?? So I didn't order anything. 3. The entertainment blows my mind. I've flown with you guys like 8 times this year, and the app still does not work properly, however, before every flight, someone mentions over the intercom to be sure to download the app...but if it doesn't work...why offer it? Also, if there are tvs at the back of every headrest, the least you could offer is a random movie, versus the commercials about how great the app is, or whatever was scrolling along. Lastly, please note, I was trying to figure out a way to make a comment to United...but didn't want to sound TOOO disgruntled. I'm not opposed to flying with UA, absolutely not, but if any of these things are addressed, I definitely feel you will be making a massive improvement on what seems to be an airline that I'd think twice about taking. Feel free to e-mail or call me. I don't mean to sound rude...but having flown other airlines, and knowing that UA has been around for a while, i just hoped the experience would be better."
Pros: "The cabin crew themselves were great. The pilots offered my child to go see the cabin and everyone on the actual plane was great."
Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding process; arrived early; no wait to get luggage."
Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"
Pros: "Always loved United, always will! The bad rap going around about them unfortunate but people won't understand the airline industry if they don't try."
Pros: "The people were very nice! The entertainment although not easy to access was free. snacks were meh but ok. They did what they could to make us comfortable after flight was delayed 2.5 hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours was out of the control of the crew. They did what they could. But the plane was cramped. Not enough space. Everyone was cramped. We missed our connecting flight they put us up in a hotel and booked alternate flights. We had to stand out in the cold waiting for a shuttle to take us to the hotel. The hotel staff said more than once they were not prepared for all of us and getting us from airport to hotel and in rooms was almost another 2 hours. That gave us 3.5 hours to sleep before we started in the next journey. Of 4 hours from take off to landing in our home city. I had to pay for my baggage to go onto another airline."
Pros: "The first plane had enough leg room"
Cons: "That the plane needed to be changed due to something being wrong with it. On our flight from cancun, Mexico to SFO we had to stop in Houston to change planes. One of the guys working at the security check point was very mean, raising his voice to people, grabbing their and also my stuff out of their hands, some of my stuff fell on the floor and got stuck in the rolling thingies. I hope I found all of it, not sure. I'm not sure how this happened, shouldn't planes be checked thoroughly before heading out!?!? This all is a big mess and very upsetting (literally just cried for 20 minutes). Sincerely, Sabrina Jungclaus S.firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight crew was kind, informative, and helpful. Very professional."
Pros: "Found what was expected from the flight. Hats up to the take off that happened on time in a busy airport."
Cons: "Aircraft is tiny and seats are narrow."
Pros: "They held the plane due to delays in customs"
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Comfortable and enjoyable flight, efficient crew without delays."
Cons: "Poor food - even going for the safe pasta option. Very disappointing & not enjoyable."
Pros: "The fly was good and the captain as well."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess and I got the worst seat."
Cons: "Recent airline corporation consolidation has greatly reduced consumer choice. The surviving major airlines, in their effort to cut costs, sacrifice quality control and assurance. Pittsburgh's status as "no longer a major hub" was on full display here. United needed to have customer service agents available on site, but they did not. The review could easily turn into an essay on United's complete failure (ask the remaining passengers who were supposed to be on the PIT-IAD), but such a review would not change the state of affairs in the airline industry. I will be contacting United reps to lodge an official complaint."
Pros: "Depart was organized and the flight arrived before the time."
Cons: "Snack is horrible even water is very difficult to get."
Cons: "After having several flights with international airlines while in Thailand for the last 2 weeks, it was quite a disappointment to spent 12 hours on this UA flight. There was a 6-8 hour period during our flight were flight attendants did not ask or even consider walking the isles and asking the passengers if they needed any water or anything else. During several flights in Thailand, the attendants were constantly catering to every passengers' needs. The difference between the flight attendants from Bangkok to Tokyo compared to Tokyo to DC was worlds apart. The Japanese attendants were as friendly as ever and took care of all the passengers needs. The flight attendants were flat out rude. There was once event on this flight that I could not believe. A child of 5-7 years old had to go to the restroom with his mother. The flight attendant was collecting trash from our meal. Even though she knew the child was behind her and needed to go to the restroom, she would not stop collecting trash, move her cart so that the boy and his mother could get to the restroom. Instead, she continued collecting trash and made the boy wait until she was done. I feel embarrassed for the foreigners who were on this flight and this was their first impression of America and Americans. The main meal that was served was a breaded chicken patty served with a slurry of questionable gravy, rice, and a roll. I received better food on multiple 1 hour flights while in Thailand. The comfort level was what you would expect from most American airlines-tight and cramped. I will never book with United for another international flight."
