Pros: "Fly monthly with Alaska and never let me down."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."

Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer.. highly recommend"

Cons: "My seat 12 A. Had no window"
Pros: "The power outlet..."
Cons: "that it didn't have tight enough holes to hold the plug in place (it would keep falling)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time"
Cons: "flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good seating I didnt assign. Quick in flight beverages offered food,entertainment."
Cons: "Had to purchase food,entertainment, 2/3bathrooms for coach all in the back of cabin none in middle or front."
Pros: "Accommodating to pets on board. Very helpful attendants and friendly staff overall. Always pleasant to call Alaska bc they are personable."
Cons: "I spoke with someone a month in advance and reserved seats, and booked a pet. The night before our flight I requested wheelchair assistance online. When we arrived they didn't have us down for assistance, didn't have record of the dog and had switched all our seats so we no longer were together or had an aisle. They rectified as best they could and were, again, very friendly. Just somehow miscommunication between the lines."
Pros: "Loading was fast."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little cramped, but it was a smaller plane."
Cons: "There was not food service nor any entertainment on the flight this the one star setting. You really need an n/a rating in your scale. The lack there of makes your survey inaccurate."
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"
Cons: "Wrapped glassware in checked in luggage. Glassware looked so broken as if someone jumped on the suitcase. Never saw crushed glass like that."
Pros: "I paid for first class and was pulled out of line and told was being moved not asked this happens so many times when I fly alone is embarrassing and not comfortable as I pay the same as them they should have done earlier. also first class wasn't much different as people were coming up non stop for bathroom not sure why.... not to be picky but is not like that on other"
Pros: "Direct flight. Yummy ginger cookies"
Cons: "Limited food choices on a flight that was not really late."

The Gate (26C) at LaGuardia was outside. We had to walk in 30 Degree Farenheit weather outside and wait to be checked in. This was not a Delta policy, but the LaGuardia Airport is undergoing renovations. An Airport Shuttle to the plane would have been so much better!

Took forever for checked bags to get to baggage claims

👍

Cons: "Way crowded even in comfort plus Flight very late leaving Missoula Got to SLC just as flight was boarding for LA"
Pros: "Being that I needed to book last minute due to my other carrier only having one flight headed back to my destination, of which they weren't even sure if it would be taking off...Delta came through in a pinch. It was my first time flying with them but the ticket agent was helpful and attentive"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"

Pros: "Friendly"
Pros: "The flight crew was so nice! Roomy seats and plenty of snacks!"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Never on time"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was super late, I’m hearing impaired and there’s no apparent closed captioning option for anything I was trying to watch"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat.

Cons: "My suitcase was damage"
Pros: "I got home"

Pros: "Seating was very nice and a free move was a plus"

Pros: "Great entertainment offering plus liked that I was able to charge my phone at the same time."
Cons: "Nothing to add"

Pros: "Confort"

Cons: "Mechanical failure had to switch planes an hour and 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Personnel were pleasant and welcomeing at the gate and onboard."
Cons: "Service overall and pleasant disposition of the crew."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Since I am a Silver Medallion Skymiles member, I asked about an upgrade. All seats in First Class were taken, but the agent at the gate seated me in a seat in the front of coach with more legroom (comfort plus? I don't know what they call it). That was great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and onetime aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in perticular"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful assisting my last minute boarding needs. Staff was friendly and polite."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."
Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"
Pros: "Seats are crowded together, nowhere to move, no storage, reclined seat is in your face for 10 hrs!"
Cons: "The plane, the seats the food"

Terrible hit Ding noise at take off and landing. Needs to be checked!!!

Pros: "A very new Eagle plane. AA staff was good about updating us re: departure delays. Waited to inform us of gate valet plans until the last minute."
Cons: "BTV Airport is very small so prepare to be in crowded waiting areas."
Cons: "The wifi was never turned on so we never had any entertainment available. This made the flight less enjoyable."
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Pros: "Power outlets by each seat, and movie options."
Cons: "Delayed take off time, but made it up during flight."
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."
Pros: "Missed the flight due to delays so I am stuck in MIA until tomorrow evening"
Cons: "Have flights be on time"
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
Cons: "Your staff needs to utilize better communication. I scheduled the first flight of the day, and it was delayed. We were stuck on the tarmac for an hour without anyone telling us what was going on. We had to return to the gate to refuel and we left at the time we were suppose to arrive to Charlotte."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accomodating."
Pros: "Flight was delayed multiple times, which was understandable. However, communication was so poor we nearly missed it when it finally took off. Wed received notice it was cancelled then were told we had to go to a different gate to rebook. We just happened to go back to recheck the gate as the last group was boarding. Very poorly handled. See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"
Cons: "same as above. Was not on this flight"
Pros: "The entertaining, the aircraft"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "American Airlines was fantastic. ALL personnel were professional yet friendly. They will be my airline of choice in the future."
Cons: "WEATHER! Any problem we experienced was weather related."
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding, on time, when I asked at the gate for a window seat, I was accommodated. The food was very tasty and the flight attendants pleasant. Overall happy with this flight!"
Cons: "It is impossible to sit comfortably due to the headrest that pushed my head forward regardless how I positioned it and removing it was impossible. There were no individual screens with in-flight entertainment and although I usually read or sleep, I can see how it would bother someone."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, amenities such as USB charger and outlets were convenient. Flight departed about 10 minutes early and arrived early as well! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Cons: "Took off late and arrived late. Took15 minutes to taxi to gate"
Pros: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "Quiet flight"
Cons: "Very old plane with zero on board entertainment. Seats in front of exit row barely recline."
Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Pros: "The service was fantastic and so was the food!!!!! Loved the movie options as well."
Cons: "this flight was delayed going both directions."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Pros: "fly was on time, good service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "That all the passengers were rechecked at the Gate by TSA without offering any explanation as to why, if it was a domestic flight, why were they requiring ID again. And checking bags."
Pros: "This was probably one of the best flights I've had. Attentive flight attendants and the seats were very comfortable. I would definitely fly again."
Pros: "Food was okay for airplane food"
Cons: "I was overlooked multiple times during beverage distribution and kept getting bumped in the head even though I did not rest my head outside the headrests. Makes it difficult to get some sleep on long flights."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "No problems-good flight."
Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Delayed for about 15 minutes on arrival, something about maintenance and the entry door."
Cons: "The seats in first class were actually pretty uncomfortable. The backrest has a strange curve. I think economy would have been better."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, on-time departure, early arrival, pleasant crew, plenty of refreshments. Bravo!"
Cons: "Old entertainment system with screens overhead. Kind of a shame. When will American have in-seat entertainment systems on transatlantic flights?"
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "Very old plane. Seats uncomfortable. Miserable. Would never fly them again. This was an American Airlines flight through British Airlines."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "having people trying to shove baggage in overhead storage, this is ridiculous, shifting baggage from one bin to another just to make it fit, why not just store it all below. this would be a great idea, free baggage like it used to be."
Cons: "They need to update their planes. No tvs, no ports to charge phone, not many food options for longer flights."
Pros: "Overall great flight and great service. No complaints!"

Great flight!

Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"
Pros: "Seats and layout was updated. More room in economy. Staff was personable 3 bathrooms in economy rather than just 2."
Cons: "Offer dinner service for a six hour flight."
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable and badly maintained. Seatback stowage netting was detached and useless. There was an equipment change (new larger aircraft) I had a B (aisle seat) on the original aircraft and on the new plane my "B" seat became a middle seat. This was completely unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Lack of communication from flight deck or cabin crew as to engine shutdown and takeoff delay at MSO. Just plain irritating and completely unnecessary"
Pros: "The entertainment is amazing. Did not expect it. Just download the UA app and it is connected to your device"
Cons: "Not their fault but we were detailed total of 3 hrs from Ontario to SFO and SFO to HNL due to aie traffiv in SFO. They handled it well"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Cons: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Could have had a polite crew, ran on time, or had internet that lasted more than 10 minutes after I paid for it. I'll never fly united again."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Pros: "These people have no idea who or what United Airlines is. They work for Delta, and make sure they tell everyone about it."
Cons: "See above. The flight itself was fantastic. Larger planes are the best! Thank you!"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
Pros: "The flight from MSO to DEN on United always involves small planes. Almost always the crew and attendant() are efficient and friendly. Tonight though our attendant made us all feel like we were in 1st class. She called everyone by their names when serving (Mr. O'Connor could I get you a beverage?), checked on us multiple times and was so friendly that she stood way out!"
Cons: "Squealing brake pads need some attention"
Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptional. Loading was quick and easy. The flight left the gate on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I am old enough that I still feel insulted getting a tiny bag of pretzels on a flight."
Pros: "The gate was right next to the one I flew in from."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "The entertainment onboard was good"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly"
Cons: "Small plane, bumpy ride is to be expected. This one was a bit more than even I’m used to."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Cons: "two separate long lines to re-book and then retrieve boarding pass because one airline was lufthansa and one was united. united plane was very old, poor quality, I had horrible seat assignment, no leg room, wifi did not work, united app did not work so there was no in flight entertainment on an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Very friendly & accommodating crew. Pilot kept up informed. Personable disposition exuded across the board."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "That it was only a 5/6 hour flight"

Cons: "First time using 1st class, now I am spoiled. United coach seats are to small"

Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus, my seat didnt recline"
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: "Need more free snacks"
Pros: "Crew"

Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."

Cons: "Original flight was rebooked, and I almost missed seeing my dying grandmother. Got no apology for this huge inconvenience and stress."
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "Service/flight attendants were great. Flight was smooth mostly. Space was good as nobody next to me. Flt from YYZ via ORD to SFO misplaced my luggage and got it the next day."

Pros: "Everything went better than expected, no line, easy flights , short layovers. Everything just went smooth."
Cons: "The seats in coach were curved in a weird way. The seats made my posture bad."
Pros: "The layovers that I had in Denver were the perfect amount of time. Boarding and baggage was a breeze."
Cons: "It's flying so there isn't much room in the seats but that is to be expected."
Pros: "staff very professional"
Cons: "small seats"
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "Zero."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more then 2 hours"
