Pros: "Crew did a fantastic job"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Flight crew and attendants did very well"
Cons: "Gate changes in Seattle needs to be better communicated to travelers"
Pros: "Great crew again"
Cons: "After running from my last flight to make it to this one, the aircraft taxied out and we waited another 30 minutes before departing without any updates. Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was great as always"
Cons: "I can’t think of much."
Cons: "Correct gate information. The Yakutat to Cordova (#61) flight was delayed, which caused me to rush to the departing gate (told C2). Arrived at gate C8. Retraced my steps and made it in time for the connecting flight. Thanks to the crew."
Pros: "In a 3 hour flight with no food service, drinks only, not too much the crew can do besides to smile at you when they welcome you to the plane and when you leave"
Pros: "Crew was amazing / helpful and kind"
Pros: "Crew was kind, friendly and funny. Gogo inflight entertainment was great, and made the trip go by faster."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "They didn’t wake us up in the middle of the night for anything so we could sleep well."
Cons: "It would’ve been nice to have a pillow and blanket since it was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Older flight attendant charged me fir my drink even tho I was in premium seating and the flight was extremely late"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Pros: "Even a short period of travel they are helpful and entertaining people"
Cons: "I just don’t like giving only a 1 pc of biscuit and a 1cup of soda or drinks for almost 6 hrs of travel. At least they must give a 1meal dinner or lunch and or breakfast"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothings"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight due to turbulence. Hard seats. Majority of passengers checked in baggage were taken off in Honolulu before take off and did not make it to Anchorage."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "super uncomfortable. They charge for everything except breathing oxygen."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Screaming baby (not your fault--maybe flight attendants could have offered something to help calm kid, juice or crackers or something--it was a REALLY bad screaming baby!!). Slow drink service."
Cons: "In Orlando there were no Alaska Airlines Agents until 1:30 in the afternoon. There was a very long line of customers by the time they got there. The kiosks would not print baggage tags, there was no one to drop your bags with. We waited 2 1/2 hours, having to sit on the floor because there are no chairs in the terminal. When we finally got on the plane I witnessed the miss handling of pets being loaded by the baggage handlers. They had 3 pet carriers on the cart. Two were set apart on the bottom with the third tipped diagonally in the the space between on top of the other 2. Then the picked up and plunked down on the belt. That animal would have had no water for the 5.5 hour flight as the dishes in the carrier were spilled over."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow"
Cons: "I didn't like having a 7 hour lay over from Seattle to Anchorage. I would have enjoyed more time with my family before flying out rather than sitting in an airport for 7 hours."
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and still had not been found so I was in Alaska without most of my winter clothes."
Pros: "It was great to have fewer people on the flight so we could all spread out on the seats"
Pros: "my flight was from fairbanks to seattle and then to orlando. i was very comfortable and the attendants were caring when someone felt ill. not a medical emergency just a woman who felt odd."
Cons: "the on board thing to do with the tablet didnt work. when we landed in seattle i asked the customer service booth for help and they ould not offer any suggestions except to rent thier equipment"
Pros: "Good as well. I made it home in a fair amount of time and even better there was plenty of leg room in the plane. Yeahh"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "This flight is reliable and is staffed by very competent staff. Even in bad weather the flight goes. There is a sense of family and community on the flight as a lot of people know each other."
Cons: "If you were looking for a luxury for really good food even in first class this is not the place."
Pros: "Pleasant flight. Seemed to have more leg room. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "New approach to entertaiment, which requires you to have your own devices to view"
Pros: "Eveything in the plane looked fantastic. But still a tight fit. Drinks and food were offered often and the employees retrieved the garbage prompty. Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit. (It took forever"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "In my flight form ANC to FAI the check in was seemless. I was given a bag for my car seat. I was able to check my pack n play no issues. Checking my bag"
Cons: "My flight back my cab driver was late. I got there at 530 first of all the baggage drop lady was rude and looked me up and down before choosing to talk to me. I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nice flight and crew."
Cons: "I got spoiled by the first flight with new plane and great crew, but no complaints really."
Pros: "The gate agent accommodated my husband and I without any issues any issues. We were able to get on a flight three hours earlier than our original scheduled one. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "No tv screens built into seats ( as we had just been on a flight prior to this one which had them and they afforded a great way to pass the time)."
Pros: "Alaska to Seattle was a great flight, the crew was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "The two hour delay from Seattle to Pasco was rediculous."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No reclining capability"
Cons: "Downloading an app to watch the movies does not work out if you're already in flight bc the wifi connection won't let you access the App Store. A little counter productive!"
Cons: "The flight was oversold by at least 12 people, so even though I paid almost $600 I almost didn't get on because they wouldn't give me a seat assignment."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but they need to recline or have foot rest. When I missed the flight your CS was excellent her name was Whitney and she was in Seattle.."
Cons: "Should not charge for WIFI service in the air"
Pros: "New seat configuration is nice. Like the option of a forward cabin upgrade."
Cons: "Flight attendants were goofing around on the PA system and not giving the full briefing. We all know it by heart now, but it was unprofessional and the one gal Mimi you could barely understand. Seemed like they had all been having a night out before coming to work. Not Alaskas usual standard."
Pros: "The beer."
Cons: "No blankets."
Pros: "Just whole trip was great."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The wifi was really nice."
Cons: "It's a tight fit. There is very little leg room and I was put in a seat that didn't recline."
Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. Even though I am only a coach passenger, when I spend $400+ on a flight I expect at least a little bit of attention to be paid to the comfort and ergonomics of the seat."
Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Cons: "need more space"
Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"
Pros: "Power connection"
Cons: "seat was not comfortable. Back and legs ached."
Pros: "Pre check in at home made security check through very fast. I highly recommend doing this."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "fast and efficient boarding process, with plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row, next to the bathrooms. Since they did 4 in-flight beverages during the 5 hr flight, people kept getting stuck by the bathroom unable to get back to their seats. This seemed like an excessive amount of beverage services (contributed towards people needing to use the bathroom so much) and contributed to a bunch of people covering over my seat for most of the flight."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin attendants. Especially Irene."
Cons: "Food was poor. I would prefer a good piece of cheese or fruit."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "Crew not so much!"
Cons: "A bit friendlier ...had no ice??"
Cons: "On board entertainment was inop, making for a long (4) hours flight."
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Pros: "Safe and fast journey."
Cons: "Vegan options for everything."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Enjoy flying with Delta, crew was great."
Cons: "disappointed they didn't have a few more snacks available."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"
Cons: "I’m tired of Delta gate agents “requiring” those in Main cabin 3 gate checking bags!! Both legs of the trip it came to a point they said it’s mandatory to gate check all remaining bags. We get on board and there’s plenty of overhead space. Even a flight attendant mentioned how empty the bins were!"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"
Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"
Cons: "I did not like that they would not assign me a seat because the flight appeared to be oversold. Finally I was allowed to board (and it was a good seat location but the seat back was locked in the upright position and I wanted to knap)"
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent. Friendly, helpful, efficient"
Cons: "Having to wait till almost boarding time to have seat assignment . If the ticket was confirmed already st the time of purchase why make people wait until the last minute for a seat???"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Even though I was disappointed by not being able to get the boarding passes from Delta for Aeromexico’s connecting flight to Bogota, I had an agent greet me after customs in Mexico to issue the boarding pass so I could use the transfer flight line. Excellent service throughout the entire trip."
Cons: "Confusion over my boarding pass at the Delta terminal in Detroit."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Cons: "Layover"
Cons: "Hurricane Irma, I was lucky enough to get a refund do to the natural disaster."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "The crew were incredibly friendly. The copilot helped me gate-check my bag before he boarded when the bag didn't fit into the overhead bin."
Pros: "Flight was quick, Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was older with no power connections"
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "Very fast boarding process."
Cons: "Once boarded we sat at the gate for probably 15-20 minutes with no explanation but different crew members were getting on and off. Plane was very hot the entire time. No airflow on such a small plane made it a very uncomfortable flight. Stewardess was impossible to understand and could barely make it through the required announcements. What words you could make out, she could barely pronounce them. Stewardess also served many people incorrectly."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Cons: "Nice"
Cons: "I bought WiFi for my iPhone on the flight and could barely use it because it kept kicking me off and was super slow."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Pros: "The snacks."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever been on. Delayed 7 hours. Made it to deicing pad only to be told we needed to turn back to the gate due to technical issues. Kept being told 15 more minutes until departure."
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Pros: "Nothing I travel with service animal had to sit in my lap as plane is so small people are packed in like sardines"
Cons: "This is my 3rd time on this same flight and the last two times have been miserable due to plane being small and flight full there is no room to move your legs and my service animal is so stressed from not being able to move for a 5 hour flight that it's become unimaginable to fly this trip again on this carrier"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Cons: "Be on time!!"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "The crew did their best considering we were 3 hrs delayed and there were no snacks for any of the passengers."
Cons: "Three hr delay with a 15 month old never good and not having snacks for passengers never good."
Pros: "Smooth flight, early arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment Sytem was down for 2/3 of the flight."

Pros: "Boarded on time. Smooth boarding. Departed on time. Landed on time."
Pros: "Easy going all the way"
Cons: "Having to run from one side of Denver International to the complete other side"
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "Comfy roomy seats, free WiFi, free coffee"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Short flight so not all questions applied"
Cons: "Too small seats"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Each flight I was on, the seats were roomy and comfortable. I don't like to fly, but I have to admit, I felt pretty good on these flights. I get scared when it's bumpy, but I guess that's just life in the air."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Ear phone jack didnt work,paying more every time i travel for less,extra to check just one bag,extra to watch a movie,uncomfortable conditions for 4 hours,extra to eat anything,becoming a joke"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we were offered to get on an "earlier" flight. The "earlier" flight never left until 40 minutes AFTER our originally scheduled flight."
Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."
Pros: "The flight from New Jersey to Michigan is short."
Cons: "My flight in January was delayed because mechanical issues with the plane. My flight in February was delayed because of mechanical issues on the plane. Each time we were delayed about the amount of time the actual flight takes. The bathrooms on both planes smelled like a sewer."
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "Nkthing"
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Pros: "I liked I got notified of the delay."
Cons: "The flight kept getting pushed back and no alternatives were provided. I was able to get on a different flight after sitting at the airport for 6 hours because the delay text came after I was just about to the airport. Very inconveniencing for traveling."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Never will fly United again. First flight left early and we missed it.second re-flight arrived late to get us so we arrived too late to get our next flight. Here we are spending all our money in airports and a cheap motel in Chicago in the rain instead of being in Florida with our family."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"
Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."
Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."
Pros: "Non stop service Friendly, courteous personnel"
Cons: "Cost of the flight"
Pros: "Great staff"
