Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"

Pros: "Horrible. Airlane changed Gates at least 5 times. Delayed for hours. Waited more than 1 hour to get our bags at Chicago."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "All good with Alaska and Virgin America"

Pros: "Appreciated the outlet at each seat to easily charge phone/ tablet. Often not enough time seated in airport to allow much charging. Pilot got us to destination almost 30 minutes early, so that was also nice."
Cons: "I absolutely hate having to pay for even the 1st checked bag. 1st bag should fly free; I have to remember to take Southwest whenever possible in the future to avoid that added cost! The baggage fee added $100 to our roundtrip cost, thus making it MORE expensive than my usual others."

Pros: "Straightforward. Love that Starbucks coffee is offered! Also love that you can charge devices. The inflight entertainment option works for me; I usually come prepared but I was happy to pay to watch a movie, although the cost seemed unnecessarily high."
Cons: "There was quite a bit of wait at boarding time while standby seating was sorted out. I wasn't sure why ticketed customers could not board on schedule; instead, everyone was standing around at the scheduled board time while names were announced, etc."

Pros: "I have become a major fan of Alaska Airlines. Check In is so easy, the attendants are friendly, the food is worth purchasing (although a bit too spicy for me), the choices of flight times is impressive. I have flown with Alaska three times in the past year and every flight was booked solid. Must be lots of others who feel the same way I do."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff, tablet movies on plane, good snacks, on time."
Cons: "In a word: Kayak. A few days before my trip i found out that Kayak had not actually booked my seats as promised. What ensued was very stressful as I get very anxious having to be in a middle seat. In the future I will research on Kayak and book on an airline."

Pros: "Having an exit row"

Pros: "I liked having plugs at each seat. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I also think the boarding process could be improved."

Pros: "I liked that randomly despite being booked as a full flight, the seat was empty next to me. other than that everything else was pretty sub-par"
Cons: "I didn't like the flight being delayed over an hour for a mystery reason. I didn't like that once we finally boarded our late plane, we had to wait another half an hour for a pilot to even get on to fly it. The whole thing was just wack"

Pros: "Crew always has a smile. Smooth boarding process"

Pros: "Plane was new, seemed clean, staff was ok, attentive. Comfortable for the most part. Restroom was clean."
Cons: "For the very high price, they didn't even assign me a seat. I received an electronic notification to go to the ticketing counter. I carry-on always, and I had to check in formally. Which was a waste of time, they told me they overbooked me and there should be a seat, but I would have to check at the gate for a seat. Needing to get on this flight, I hurried to the gate. An hour and a half of wondering later...No one was at the gate until right before boarding. A little frustrating. The rep was very nice, but I got that lovely middle seat."

Pros: "On Time, polite staff."
Cons: "Tablets for entertainment for additional cost. THe most significant point is that nobody can hear the announcements when listening to their tablets."

Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."

Pros: "I got almost a full Alaskan Amber to myself because no one else had any"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and 40 minutes due to weather in Seattle which was not the airlines fault but I was sick and crabby"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Pre-check, loaded and landed on time. Great pilot on the way home back to O'Hare. All flight attendants were super to work with...no hassles/problems."
Cons: "No pillows for 6.25 hour flight:("

Pros: "Seats, beer selection, very friendly staff I will be flying again if I get the chance and I never say that anymore about other carriers."

Pros: "On time - baggage claim was quick. Liked the second offer of beverages"
Cons: "USB port hard to find"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "Pilot information/anoucements."

Pros: "Not much at all really. Getting off the plane was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like being at the airport all day to be within 15 minutes of boarding and all of the sudden the flight was delayed 5+ hours. I could have gotten a hotel for the night again. Then after we get on the flight we have to sit in Seattle for an hour and a half because they had to fuel the plane up and switch crews. Not impressed."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being between two big men, I felt squished in the middle, so I don't know if the seats are smaller than other airlines, or just my situation, but sleeping was pretty much out of the question, as I could barely move."

Pros: "Leg room was good. Seats and airplane was tidy. Provided complimentary snacks and drinks on time Boarding process was fast and easy. Crew service was excellent."
Cons: "for red-eye flights -recliner will be better than normal seats."

Pros: "Very clean, on time, smooth flight. Overall, really great, thanks."

Pros: "Boarding was fast, seats were rather comfortable, the crew was attentive"

Pros: "The flight was fine. Typical of any other airline company."
Cons: "They managed to lose my box of fish on a Direct flight from Anchorage to Chicago. I might be more understanding if I had connecting flights. Unacceptable..."

Pros: "Every airline has the same basic situation to manage. When I fly Alaska, I always feel that everyone who works for Alaska works to do the best that they can and pass it on to their customers. I hope that they continue growing. They would be my first choice to fly everywhere."

Pros: "sat in exit row"
Cons: "no blanket available"

Cons: "I plan to tell all of my friends and family in the Pacific Northwest about the mistreatment I suffered at the hands of Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "Great service from the crew on the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."

Cons: "For such a long flight at night we weren't offered a pillow to use or blanket and the seats are so small and cramped it was hard to get comfortable.one snack was offered the whole flight and the prices were too expensive to order."

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is great."
Cons: "I didn't realize I didn't pick a seat, so I had to sit in the middle. For a redeye flight, I really wasn't happy that Kayak didn't mention to reserve a seat on Alaska's website or when I checked in to my flight."

Cons: "The longest, bumpiest flight I have ever been on. The fasten seatbelt slight was on all but about 20 minutes of a four-and-a-half-hour flight. I know the crew is not responsible for the weather, but it did not appear that the pilot was trying very hard to find smoother air."

Pros: "Cheap fares, painless boarding, friendly staff and a clean plane"
Cons: "Not very many free entertainment options."

Cons: "Should not have to pay for movies other air line movies are free"

Cons: "Was unfamiliar with Seattle airport .. no one around during the wee hours in the morn when I arrived .. finally saw a worker who directed me to the Alaska airlines gate. Had to take three trains to get there, Not the fault of the airlines, just an annoying experience for me."

Pros: "Exelente"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly! The pilot kept us informed and was very friendly as well! The flight was early!"
Cons: "There wasn't really many good options on entertainment. The gogo inflight Internet options are over priced. The free options were very ecclectic in genre but weren't anything too interesting. Also, if they offer tablets at 8$ for a rental it should be free internet and entertainment with access to all of it. Other than that, good flight"

Pros: "Customer service, friendliness, comfort. Great staff on this flight in particular, although Alaska clearly hires for this as I always find staff to be helpful, courteous, and friendly."
Cons: "GoGo wireless might be interesting. I have no idea, because there is no way to download the Video app while you are on the plane. How many people know to do that ahead of time?"

Pros: "The well-organized systems at Alaskan Air made for a relaxing trip. From the app (with well-timed in-airport prompts), to the lovely crew, to the amazing way the pilot "made up" time so that we arrived a bit early despite a lengthy runway delay due to another plane's mechanical issue (during which the pilot frequently and kindly gave the passengers updates), I was impressed and satisfied."

Pros: "Everything went great, unlike my trip home, which was not on Alaska! Next time I'll try to stick with Alaska Air both ways!"

Pros: "Nothing. This has been an absolutely terrible experience and Alaska airlines is to blame."

Pros: "clean plane - timely - good crew - flight rough but pilot was communicative about it. Arrived on time. could not have been better"

Pros: "I had a wonderful time on board. The crew made feel happy."

Pros: "Alaska was so incredibly helpful and patient! We flew out on December 23, with all of the other holiday travelers. Even though it was busy, the people working the check in were great and were able to move the line quickly. They even helped us to get free bags because we are military. Flight attendants were friendly as well! Will definitely be flying Alaksa again!"

Pros: "If you're flying to Alaska, Alaska Airlines is the best option. The cabin lights were dimmed enough for people to rest, and the flight itself was pretty smooth -- we made good time."
Cons: "I travel quite a bit and it's exhausting to be on the same size plane for this flight as you'd be for a 1-2 hour flight. I had the middle seat falling asleep on my shoulder, the guy in front of me leaned back from take off to landing (literally), and the aisle is so narrow that you get banged into every time someone goes to use the facilities, or even when the flight attendants walk back and forth. It makes for a very long 6.5 hour flight. Alaska Airlines should be the front runner on making travel to Alaska as comfortable and easy as possible, but definitely the worst part of the trip."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The plane ride was smooth!"
Cons: "You should load the plane from back to front since everybody exits the plane from front to back. It is simple school bus rules"

Pros: "The crew at Missoula airport was amazing, and most friendly"

Cons: "Smelled like poop the entire flight. Actual poop in the lavatory."

Cons: "delay due to lack of deicing equipment"

Cons: "thin seat cushions"

Pros: "Nice short flight, crew was nice."

Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"

Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"

Cons: "It was canceled"

Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More water offered by crew"

Cons: "Way crowded even in comfort plus Flight very late leaving Missoula Got to SLC just as flight was boarding for LA"

Pros: "Yummy snack! Funny crew member who acknowledged seats in landing position are uncomfortable. Sing songy welcoming voices :)"
Cons: "Aww. The movie I wanted to watch wouldn’t play.."

Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "seats and entertainment was great"

Pros: "The flight crew did an excellent job communicating the weather expectations for the flight. I appreciate that information although the actual flight turned out to be very smooth."

Pros: "see above"

Pros: "Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Need more than 1 option for breakfast"

Cons: "Additude of some of the crew. After a long talked off delay ,Rod would not give me a glass of water to take my evening medicines."

Pros: "Friendly"

Cons: "3 hours delay"

Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"

Pros: "Delta....ticket counter...gate agents....flight attendants....pilots...amazing customer service with a smile! Very attentive and everyone thanked me ( and other passengers as well for flying with Delta."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"

Pros: "Delta could not help FAA regulations, so it was not their fault our initial flight was delayed an hour and 50 minutes. The gate agents in Missoula were fantastic in trying to help us figure out connection options to Baltimore."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."

Pros: "Easy to board."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather."

Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."

Cons: "Delays!"

Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"

Pros: "On time. Most important"

Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"

Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."

Pros: "On time and courteous staff"

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."

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

Pros: "delays for a long time to get to the gate than delays for more than 2 hours for a crew to come in..."

Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."

Pros: "Delta crew are always attentive."
Cons: "Snack quantity and choices."

Cons: "2 of my 4 bags, which I checked in, were broken during my travel."

Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "The seat was not a flatbed. It was an old fashioned first class seat but with absolutely awful knee room---possibly as little as 28-30 inches. It was very difficult for the person next to the window to get out to the aisle, even when the person in the aisle seat was not sitting there. The biz class cabin was shared with economy comfort. The crew gave no explanation for the switch in aircraft, and no apology either."

Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."

Pros: "Boarding was on time, free entertainment, choice of free snack with our drink, free extra serving of complementary coffee, and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing in this experience"

Pros: "Same as Boston to Minneapolis."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."

Pros: "We had to have the plane de-iced before we left but we still arrived in Houston earlier than originally planned. The flight was smooth and quick and with a flight that wasn't packed full I was very comfortable without a seat mate."

Pros: "need to feed people more often and make the seats alittle more comfier but other then everything came out good looking forward in flying with delta again"

Pros: "The flight was good. Takeoff and landing were great. Service in flight great."
Cons: "The online safety show didn’t work. They started it several times, then did it in Edson. The overhead reading lights flashed on and off periodically making me a bit concerned about the electricals. Our main piece of luggage was sent on a different flight. It took us over an hour to locate that had happened. We waited at the distribution point. We got one Piecebut not the other. After all we’re taken from the belt we went in search and found it."

Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."

Pros: "All crew very friendly & helpful. Went out of their way to help elderly gentleman traveling alone"

Pros: "The flight was on time, cabin crew looked nice and professional, AA stuff at the airport of departure was very helpful with complicated check-in procedure."
Cons: "It was a short flight (less than an hour) and only complimentary drinks were offered, no little snacks (like pretzels, peanuts or cookies)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "More than 24 passengers on the flight from LAX to Chicago lost their connection to Venice After we landed in Chicago with 2 hours delays we all run to catch our flight to Venice and we got there 5 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave but was still there instead but we were denied access and send back to customer service"

Pros: "British Airways seats"
Cons: "If we did not arrive at the airport 3hours ahead, and get on an earlier flight we would have missed our connecting flight to England. Do Not book such shoes time between flights because often they are delayed."

Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."

Cons: "3 boarding doors less than 50 feet apart with departures leaving within 15 min of each other created a difficult to penetrate gaggle."

Pros: "There is not much to like when you over charge for seats and have staff who don’t accomodate for family to sit together or someone with a disability who needs to use the restroom often to sit on an aisle seat."
Cons: "Staff has horrible attitude. Price for seats and luggage is ridiculous."

Pros: "Flights reached the destination before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Chicago airport is a mess. It took us about 3 hours from exiting international terminal to domestic We managed to board a flight just before the gate close. Literally running in the airport. I believe there are people who missed the flight"

Pros: "Great entertanment system and nice complimentary drinks including liqour."
Cons: "Seats a little cramped in coach"

Pros: "Best landing I’ve experienced recently!"

Pros: "the Bowing 787 was wonderful"
Cons: "flight had been delay and delay. we are very disappoint because we always think we are fly with British airway, we even went to check in counter of British airway but find out America airline are the solo airline.you guys can't advertized like that."

Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."

Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "I had to run for all its worth."

Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."

Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."

Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."

Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"

Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"

Pros: "Should have booked AA instead of BA."
Cons: "AA couldn't find BA reservation. poor integration of services"

Pros: "Flight was on-time and crew was pleasant. This flight had movies available to watch!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Fast reliable two thumbs up!!!"

Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."

Pros: "Good and entertainment"
Cons: "I have short legs so the long flight was uncomfortable. A stop of some sort would helpnif offered"

Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"

Pros: "excellent flight. on time and no issues"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."

Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"

Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."

Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."

Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"

Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"

Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"

Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"

Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That it got cancelled"

Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."

Pros: "Flight was fine"

Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"

Pros: "The flight was good and the crew was great the flight attendants were very professional and down to earth the gate agent helped me with my seat due to I did not have a assigned one confusing. Overall it was good"
Cons: "Did not like the way the entertainment had to be watched."

Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"

Pros: "Appreciated the boarding style, more organized crowds"
Cons: "Seats are getting too small, not enough room for elbows"

Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."

Cons: "When sitting straight up in the seat, my knees hit the seat in front of me. United seems to be making the space between each seat terribly close."

Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."

Pros: "We didn't crash?"
Cons: "After much concerns and inquiries made bag did NOT make the plane! There is as no one to h love me to n white Planes for 45 minutes! No one at the counter? Wow! Finally supervisor Jill was able to track it down in Chicago where th y took it off the he plane as my carry on because they had no room l ft from the h limited space. After working very hard to get my bag of o White Plains that evening, supervisor Jill hung out an hour past her shift ended to get it on the last transport to my hotel. The transport blew herself by ft and never showed up or called the o say he wasn't coming back! I got my bag on he next morning just in tim for my event! I also was not credited my frequent flyer miles. Some glitch in the system. Overall I must rate my experience as a one star simply because the pilots got us there safely."

Cons: "Very late."

Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."

Pros: "Our seats weren't changed on us, as it was going to Florida"

Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "How they wouldn't even hand out a cup of water to anyone....."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."

Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."

Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane didn't leave until 2.5 hours after expected departure time and we never got an actual reason why. This also made me miss my connecting flight so I had to spend an additional 6 hours in the airport waiting."

Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."

Pros: "Nothing about 9 HOURS in an Airport is great! I walked from where I landed coming from Calgary, to terminal 2 Gate F 17 because that was where the flight to Lexington was to leave from. Then I got notice it was leaving from terminal 1 Gate B 24 so (I'm sure I walked a mile there) to get there. Waited for a number of hours checked my phone and found the departure was back again at terminal 1 Gate F 17!?!?! So I walked another mile back to where I started. At no point was I offered a drink or meal voucher for the 9 hour delay/inconvenience in my flight to Lexington ky. Suffice to say that I will NEVER go on any flight if I have to go back through this airport. I also have horrible knees, which all the walking did not help."
Cons: "I would like to say that as a person with a disability, there is not any support for help getting around. They have plenty of for lack of a better term "golf carts"; but no one utilizing them. Not that I am a world traveler; but this airport could take more than a page from Calgary international in terms of support to those with disabilities. I will NEVER and I do mean NEVER go through something like this again. I expected to be home in Lexington at 5:00pm and did NOT arrive until midnight.??!! This is in my opinion quite unacceptable! What a way to spend a hard earned vacation day! Thanks Luanne Steele"

Pros: "The long haul from Latvia to Oregon is usually a pain but the SAS employees worked to make it as positive as possible. Everything was great from the seats and accommodation to the food and staff."

Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."

Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."

Pros: "Boarding was much more organized with lines marked for each boarding group. The crew was super friendly. Also, I received a whole can of cran-apple juice, which was much nicer than just a small cup. The tv options were also fairly priced for the options available."

Pros: "Great customer service.. Comfortable flight and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Paying for one check in bag..."

Pros: "Even though i wasn't able to choose my own seat I was given a fairly good seat near the front of economy"
Cons: "The entertainment system was lacking compared to the system on the Lufthansa flight from Riyadh. The touch screen wasn't easy to manipulate and the choice of movies wasn't the same. I know it was united coming to Chicago but the actual Lufthansa airline flight exceeded expectations over united by far!"

Pros: "I liked it that you got a little snack even though it was just a short flight! The boarding was very fast!"
Cons: "There was not very much space for the legs! The seats were very close!"

Cons: "United delayed the flight. This information became available about an hour in advance- well after we drove two hours (We live in Montana) to get to the airport. The attendants said / not our problem. I called United's Customer Service number to discuss ways of mediating the delay that resulted in us missing the wedding venue and entire reason we booked the $1400 flight. I again got a "not my problem" response- no the flights can be modified, no we will not provide vouchers, no we really don't care that our poor quality and service cost you and your family tremendously in time, effort, and lost memories. I know we are at the mercy of airlines, but what a painful disappointment. My experience with Delta has been better and I suggest avoiding United Airlines if other flight options exist.... Even consider a very long drive over the use of the airline."

Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."

Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."

Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."

Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."

Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."

Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"

Cons: "The seats didn't bend back to be comfortable. Only 1 inch!!! The back was restless"

Pros: "Nice flight and on time."

Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Your Crew!!!! From the lady who checked me in to the last flight attendant saying thank you for flying with us... you should really be proud of your staff!"

Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."

Pros: "Flights took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Flight home was moved an hour early when I checked in. Gate attendant offered me a $500 voucher for taking the next flight...and then ended up putting me on the early flight anyway and gate checking my luggage. I really wish I got both the voucher AND to hold onto my carry-on. And then, leg room on that flight was so bad. I am only 6ft tall and was squished in like a sardine."

Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."

Pros: "Excellent service."

Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."

Pros: "Economy Plus is OK and crew is fine."
Cons: "Food is absolutely atrocious on US airlines."

Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"

Cons: "I would like to see free movies added to the flight like American Airlines have."

Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "power outlets were present but not functional. A real pity as I counted on it for my long trip to keep my portable devices. Lounge in Chicago does not have many outlets either and the next plane to Brussels either. This prevented me to keep my devices up along my trip preventing to work or watch movie as I wanted."

Pros: "Checking in at ticket counter was easy, service was accomdating for mom w disability. Love the option abt free ck bag for carryon. Very happy with change of flight option when original lay over was canceled. Love the text message update"

Cons: "Flight attendant "China" - needs to be doing something else - she was not interested in her job."
