Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was on schedule."

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Seat could have been better. More room. In flight internet and movies would have make the flight great"

Cons: "I was downgraded from first class with no answer and no cash or credit"

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!!!"

Cons: "The movies would 'skip' missing whole scenes at times."

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: "They couldn't land in Ketchikan due to fog so they flew up to Sitka and got back 3 hours later, missed my connection in Seattle and spent the night at the airport, the I got charged 50 dollars for switching my tickets, are you kidding me, Alaska airlines sucks big time"

Pros: "Always good"

Pros: "Plane was late to the terminal. Crew got it turned over, boarded, and off the ground in a very small amount of time."
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment despite booking the tickets months ahead of time, and checking in 24 hours before the flight. The plane was already mostly boarded by the time I was finally assigned a seat."

Pros: "1st, I got upgraded to TSA precheck so security was a breeze. Was able to change my middle seat to a window seat in an exit row at 24hr check. It was a full flight, but no fight to get suitcase space. And the flight attendants were very clear & concise in their directions & food/drinks went very fast. Thanks, Alaska Airlines"

Pros: "Due to the bad weather, the turbulence was terrible. However, the flight attendants were nice and their job were very efficient."

Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "While traveling recently with Alaska Airlines, my traveling partner and I were offered seats in the exit row, by the lady who checks your boarding pass at the gate. We gladly excepted the roomier seating. We were issued new boarding passes, and made our way to our seats. Once we settled in, a flight attendant asked to see my boarding pass. She looked at it and said, "Yep Amber so-and-so, seat 17B." Apparently, the airline had combined 2 flights, so people were all crammed into a new tighter space. There was even a bumped "first class" customer all squabbling over the seats. My traveling partner and I, eventually just asked them to please give us our old seats back. Finally, we were seated in our original seats. We never asked to be moved in the first place, it was offered to us. The whole thing was humiliating, and unnecessary."

Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."

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: "Staff was friendly and boarding and unboarding was swift."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable and not much leg room."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing that would be worth mentioning, I don't fly very much so I'm not comfortable doing it yet"

Pros: "We were very satisfied overall."

Pros: "Always great service"
Cons: "Somehow I ended not sitting next to my companion. In my head if you purchase two tickets, they should automatically assume you want to sit together. I guess I needed to select seats before the flight."

Cons: "To cramped for the tall"

Cons: "They were out of almost everything to eat as well as alcoholic beverages."

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."

Pros: "Crew was extremely hostile and rude"
Cons: "Smile and treat black individuals better"

Cons: "Tightly packed seats made for discomfort. My knees were touching the seat in front of me."

Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."

Pros: "no very poor , terrible plans and plane service"
Cons: "better aircraft, better trained staff from delta service in tei cities wonderful fred"

Pros: "The pilot did an awesome job of welcoming travelers and keeping them updated on the flight status."
Cons: "I sat almost to the back and there was not enough lunch by the time the crew made it back there so I had to eat breakfast instead of lunch."

Cons: "My screen wasn’t working. It would have been great if it was."

Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."

Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "My suitcase arrived damaged."

Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive the entertainment was good. Every thing else was pretty disappointing. The bathrooms onboard were pretty Dirty. The flight was delayed and no overhead baggage space. For such a long and delayed flight they gave me one pack of cheez it. Terrible value for money :("
Cons: "More snacks considering the delay. Maybe even a some sort of credit for my time wasted."

Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"

Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."

Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."

Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "i likes that drinks were free"
Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."

Pros: "Basic flight... likedthe tomato juice and snack mix"
Cons: "Announcements startled me every time due to volume"

Pros: "This flight is always on time and flying on Sunday is a great option."

Cons: "Connection time was very short and arrival and departure gates were very far apart. The gate attendant at the arrival gate wasn’t very helpful or sympathetic."

Pros: "The movies kept my daughter busy."

Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "The waiting area at gate 47 is a joke. Doesn't anyone care that it was filthy and had 10 seats for passenger waiting to board their flight?"

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"

Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."

Pros: "Everything was great from boarding to landing."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."

Pros: "This was probably the best flight I’ve ever been on. The staff had a great sense of humor, as well as openly honored our military by bumping up an active member to first class."

Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"

Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."

Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."

Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."

Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."

Cons: "Missed original flight. I have been a premier customer of United for years. The only thing I've seen so far is extra baggage. When we first got our Amex Delta cards we boarded with sky. Now we are on much later."

Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"

Pros: "Easy ride back home."
Cons: "Limited options for closed captions video. Any announcement was not mentioned in writing."

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "once we left Ewr everything went smooth"
Cons: "Late taking off. had to hurry to catch final leg"

Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."

Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."

Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seating in ecomony class is very tight, restricting, and uncomfortable."

Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "Wobbly, tight seating. Broken tv/entertainment system. No legroom. No warning before turbulence."

Pros: "First flight I have ever flown that offered free beverages of all kinds. Food wasn't too bad. Entertainment choices were outstanding. Pilot was like a tour guide."
Cons: "Cramped space for 14 hours. Some crew were somewhat grumpy and seemed rushed, even though we had plenty of time."

Pros: "Same as previous flight."

Pros: "Quick flight time even though we left late."
Cons: "Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats."

Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."

Cons: "DCA poorly organized"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Boarding was average. Cabin crew was very nice and attentive when needed. Flight was on-time. Luggage arrived quickly and unharmed."
Cons: "When will airlines end cramming in as many sardines/passengers in the plane? The seating for me (6"1") was too close to the seat in front. Luckily, the passenger in front of me did not recline."

Cons: "No window at the window seat"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant!!!"

Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."

Cons: "Very poor communication with multiple delays. Boarding was 2 hours late, and yet flight was still showing as on time. Then when finally boarded, sat at the gate much longer due to no push back crew. Sloppy and disrespectful of peoles time!"

Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."

Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"

Pros: "Crew aircraft and was given an exit window seat no charge"

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Cons: "So. Many. Screaming. Children."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "The entertainment factor of people with huge bags being told they have to check them at the gate!"

Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"

Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes are very old, for a transatlantic flight to have monitors showing one movie in the middle of the plane is ridiculous. Even my 2 hours Delta flight had personalized screens and entertainment on demand. Really disappointing especially on return as we flew 8 hours during daytime"

Pros: "Food. There was dinner (and wine) and breakfast. Check-in was quick, flight departure was on time."

Pros: "Headphones provided. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Exhausting overseas flight. Seats barely recline, impossible to get any sleep. The system was broken so no wifi, movies, maps etc. Power was intermittent so it was difficult to charge devices."

Cons: "Be on time!!"

Cons: "Wifi/entertainment didn’t work."

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: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

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: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

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."

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

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: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Great flight."

Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

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."

Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
