Cons: "On one my flights I had to sit in an isle seat & people kept bumping me while I was trying to sleep but that's really out of anybody's control so I can't fault the airline for it!"

Pros: "Fast boarding and flight. Food couldn’t really be rated as it was a couple cookies and a drink. Comfort was average for economy class seating. There was ample room to move your feet as long as there was room to stow your bags up top. On this flight there wasn’t much room. Too many people bring carry on baggage vice checking it in."
Cons: "Not enough room to stow carry on baggage."

Pros: "The captain was the only nice person on the crew."
Cons: "Flight attendants were extremely rude. Made a simple request for a second cup of water two times. Both times I was meet with an ugly looks d a “we’ll see, you have to wait!” Water never came and neither did the flight attendants. They were too busy talking to each other in the back of the plane. Worst flight attendants ever!! Glad I fly Delta twice a month!"

Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

Pros: "trip overall very good"
Cons: "It didn't have on board wi-fi"

Pros: "We got a flat tire on the way to the airport. Left the car on the side of the road, hopped on a quick uber ride to the Bozeman airport and we made it with literally one minute to spare. we wouldn't have if the girl helping us hadn't been so determined to get us on our flight."
Cons: "It was all great. No complaints."

Pros: "The flight and crew were great. I loved the quick boarding."
Cons: "However, the other passengers were not considering others. There were several different families that let their kids run and scream up the walkway. Some passengers did not use headphones and conflicted with all the other sounds and made hearing the annoucements very difficult."

Pros: "I liked the crew on my flights."
Cons: "My Connecting flight SEA to PDX. "CANCELLED!""

Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"

Pros: "We were on and off the plane quickly. Luggable arrived very promptly. Nice choice for beer and wine which is complimentary."
Cons: "Very efficient and friendly."

Pros: "One stewardess was very nice."
Cons: "My flight was late and I was not notified through any media, not Kayak not Alaska Airlines. I arrived early to the airport, asked the luggage check in and was told it was 30 minutes behind. Then burn up a little time, go through security only to find that it was 50 minutes late. None of the signage was updated at the terminal to say how late, it still said on time until I got on the plane. My flight was stressful due to being sat next to someone with no sense of personal space and in the two other seats next to me was a fussy baby with his father. Got to Portland, and had to run to the other half if the airport. I decided to postpone my flight until later due to that stress."

Pros: "GREAT job"

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Bozeman because the pilot had too many hours so plane was late missed flight from Seattle to Walla Walla. Horizon terminal crew was clueless. Hope to never have to fly on Horizon if trying to get somewhere on time."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Turbulance Small seats"

Pros: "Timeliness, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Overhead bins just a little too small, waited a long time to board due to late crew, I believe. That is understandable, but would have appreciated a bit more communication at the gate"

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."

Pros: "Flights not cancelled"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats at all"

Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."

Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."

Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"

Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Cons: "I was switch to an other air line .then it took them so long .that the plane left 've for they could find me on the list,so I was not able to leave. So then then booked me in the Alaska air line for the next day and gave e me a best western hotel to stay at, but I waited an hour and twenty minutes and know one came to take me to the motel. So I finally was shelled back to the gate , cause I was not able to stay there any longer cause I wouldn't ha e have had much time to be in the m politely be for having to Came back to the airport port. . Should have been in Las Vegas Wednesday night did get there till the next day . I spent a very UN comfortable night at the airport."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "It was very difficult to eat due to the close proximity to the other seats. The flight was delayed by over two hours which led to other problems for myself and my family."

Pros: "It was decent"

Pros: "When I checked in to get my boarding pass and load my bags, the lady was extremely friendly and nice."

Pros: "The snacks"

Pros: "FA were ok"
Cons: "No entertainment"

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

Cons: "Hour late and no wifi!"

Pros: "The crew was good. Now fast but good."
Cons: "The food was pretty basic."

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Cons: "Ran 2 1/2 hours late, poor customer communication"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"

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

Pros: "Crew was very professional. Seat uncomfortable. No entertainment. did get water or coffee."
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew; excellent service with a smile. Food was good considering, and Magnum ice cream bar a delightful treat. Cabin crew paid good attention to benefits of hydration and served water continuously. Seats and leg room were comfortable considering economy and no extra cost."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow one free bag check in on transatlantic flights"

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "Getting off the plane in Los Angeles"
Cons: "3 small children put in the row behind the exit row kicking the seat backs and slamming the tray tables"

Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."

Pros: "The crew was very nice. Quite helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The only small item is the gate size in MSP. Always a bit crowded but still departed on time so it’s not a large issue."

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

Pros: "Friendly"

Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."

Pros: "Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best.."
Cons: "We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating."

Pros: "There was a medical emergency and the crew responded quickly and asked for onboard medical personnels. Wi-Fi was fast."
Cons: "Lack of snacks."

Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."

Pros: "Got to destination safely and on time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant, tight seats"

Cons: "Flight delayed, nearly missed connecting flight"

Pros: "Time of the flight"
Cons: "Space in the plane"

Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Boarding process. Paying to check bag when people with roll-on bags were allowed to check them at the gate for free."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Kayak should know that. I got about 15 message s from you about a flight that was cancelled 24 hrs ago. That is not helpful."

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."

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"

Cons: "The two hour delay"

Pros: "The staff was excellent, and very patient with the customers"
Cons: "Being 6'2", the leg room left a lot to be desired, and I was cramping after approximately 9 hours flight time (flight to Tokyo)."

Pros: "I fist and most importantly, I liked the price of the flight. The airports were very helpful with guiding and helping speed up the checkin, boarding, and safe travel through my only stop in Mexico City."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."

Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."

Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"

Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"

Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."

Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."

Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."

Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."

Pros: "It was only a 30 minute flight."

Cons: "Announcements were difficult to hear. ?static"

Cons: "I have MS so I always select an aisle seat because I can't sit still and if I try I end up with a lot of pain. They want us by our seats during the flight. I selected our seating at the time of purchase, checked 24 hours in advance & checked at the front desk before going to our terminal and we still had the seats I selected at all those points. I heard names being called while we waited for our plane, but ours was never called. It wasn't till we boarded that bells started going off & our seating was changed. I spent 8 1/2 hours in pain!"

Pros: "Flights were on-time, luggage arrived as expected. Nice job Delta."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was great! Aircraft had the tv’s in the back of the seats, so we got to watch movies and be entertained. Flight was smooth and landing was perfect. Couldn’t ask for better!"
Cons: "Everything went great!"

Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing."
Cons: "EVERYTHING!! Packed like sardines with ZERO distancing for a four hour flight. Flight attendants were horrible and did nothing to mandate mask wearing. Literally watched a guy sleep nearly the entire flight with his mask off and the FA walked by him multiple times without saying anything. Will never fly with American after their abysmal attempt to keep us safe. I did not feel safe for a second on that horrendous flight. Definitely getting a COVID test and I will know where I got it from if I test positive. Also the seats are uncomfortable and it was a very bumpy flight (I understand that part cannot be avoided). I don’t understand how you cancel flights and bump people to other flights only for them to be SUPER packed. I thought at the rate of cases rising airlines should be doing a better job at taking safety precautions. Not American. Why do they think it’s a safe idea at this time to have my wife and I packed in with a total stranger for four hours? No social distancing whatsoever! Overall I cannot say a single good thing about this flight. Worst in my entire life"

Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"

Pros: "Efficient"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class??? Cost cutting measure?"

Cons: "Delayed 6 hours"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating but all three of us passengers were very close together, Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other."
Cons: ", Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other.Just need a little more elbow room for a comfortable flight."

Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."
Cons: "Customer service didn't even try to find connecting flights and informed us that there were no other flights going to Phoenix. Which was a lie. I will never book with American again."

Pros: "More entertainment options, plugs for charging electronics, and better food"
Cons: "Pretty much everything could have been better, including the plane"

Cons: "Flight had a/c that didn’t cool - everyone was incredibly hot and complaining. Flight delayed for an hour and a half with no reason."

Pros: "Only the food on this trip was good. Everything else had issues."
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding at Miami. Agent did NOT speak clearly. Uncomfortable long walk outside uphill ramps and steps to board on the a tarmac. Purser’s PA system only worked occasionally. Most communications relayed from rear. My first class seat in row 3 was broken partially reclined."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, comfortable and staff was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Every thing! Healthier food needed"

Pros: "Nothing, was a very old airplane very uncomfortable for a long trip."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment, uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."

Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"

Pros: "Couldn't get own crew closed gate and would not open door."
Cons: "Crew closed gate before the 10 min delayed time, knowing connecting passengers would not be able to make it. From a flight 10 min late."

Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Informed in cell phone about flight delays."
Cons: "Delayed flight. I was informed of the three-timed delays. Eventually, the flight met the 2nd one."

Cons: "lack . of service from crew ( business class) crew attitude... seats uncomfortable/lack of storage for personal items"

Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and genuine"
Cons: "They didn’t load enough “for purchase” food. This was a six hour flight! They has no options left excepthummus and chips. This is second flight on American this year where they don’t supply the plane appropriately."

Cons: "Entertainment options were great"

Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."

Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."

Cons: "At 6'1" the seats are too small and close together."

Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"

Cons: "Not able to check luggage all the way through"

Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Walking out in rain to board the plane"

Pros: "Crew very helpful. Screen broken, crew attempted to fix. When unable to fix, moved seat. Followed up and made sure I was taken care of."
Cons: "Entertainment screen broken."

Pros: "There was quite a large selection of movies. New releases to old classics. All free."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."

Pros: "1/2 empty"

Pros: "Entertainment: individual tv screens, free current movies, flight tracking, music, etc."
Cons: "Not all food items were available when they got to us. The food was not that good. After landing we sat idle for about 15 minutes because another plane was at our gate..this resulted in us almost missing our connecting flight."

Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "1 hour late"

Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."

Pros: "Very friendly. Quick & semi efficient."
Cons: "Need bigger chairs for bigger people."

Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth ride On time"

Pros: "Easy connections"

Cons: "No Free Wi-Fi"

Pros: "My flight was delayed and this is the second time Emerican airline will not give us at least food vouchers to help us out. The receptionist act careless about your situation, I'm still Stuck in Phili where I wa supposed to meet my connection flight, I had to spent the night at the airport!!! American air line is know for this type of dilemma, I will never again fly with American again. I just don't understand how they are not liable for anything at all!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and fairly efficient, I imagine thanks to ground crew at PHX."
Cons: "Plane was seriously dated. Interior seems to be untouched in the last ten years. Seats creaked and squeaked, easily could have been remedied with a few man hours of care to the plane. I pray that the state of the interior of this American Airlines flight does not reflect the condition of the plane's vital flight systems."

Pros: "It’s been a while since I have flown United, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great the crew on both of my flights were. I flew basic economy and was treated better and had as much leg room as with “upgraded service” from another carrier with an American name. After this experience I’ll go out of my way to book on United. Thanks"

Pros: "What mede this trip so poor was that the agent at the desk informed me that as I was boarding the plane my carry on suitcase had to be checked due to limited space in the overhead bins. This is the same carry on that I have stored in overheads on literally over 100 flights including a United flight 4 days earlier. I was the approximately the fith passenger to board in group 3 and after I let her check my bag I walked on to the plane to see not only was it only one quarter full of passengers, most of the overhead bins were completely empty. So I had to go to baggage claim to get my checked bag after we landed which took almost 40 minutes. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "See above!"

Pros: "The crew was magnificent"
Cons: "Be nice to offer a glass of water to your clients!!"

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"

Cons: "Mechanical issues caused delay, unavoidable. Crew was friendly and kept us updated."

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: "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: "You had us leaving from Dallas...we were on flight from Houston to Amsterdam"

Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes, got on runway then determined we were low on fuel. Back to gate, refuel, two hour delay"

Cons: "This plane was awful. I don't know how anyone who is not miniature sized could be comfortable on this plane. I am 6' 1" and ~ 200 lbs, not huge by any means, but not tiny. I legitimately could not stand up (so I had to sort of slouch walk down the aisle to find my seat at the back of the plane), then the seats themselves were so narrow that I ached terribly when seated in any position for more than acouple of minutes."

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: "The crew did a good job with the sick woman."

Pros: "i slept for all but the last 30 min, where i read my book till we landed."

Cons: "Too long delayed"

Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."

Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"

Cons: "Boarding process makes no sense to the flying public and is just another money making deal for the airline."

Pros: "We upgraded to more leg room since our flight to LA was terrible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They were not on schedule and I missed my connection. They said it was not their problem and can't compensate me. On top of all that they were rude!"

Cons: "Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way."

Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I was in comfort plus so I had more leg room but in middle seat."
Cons: "Being in middle seat Stewards rude Everything (food and snacks, enertainment- wifi wasn't working so we couldn't view on our personal devices) needed to be purchased. Even delta and Hawaiian airlines give free meals. Didn't get seat assignment till I got to gate. Not allowed to say if I wanted window or aisle seat."

Cons: "Was stuck in a middle seat on a full flight"

Pros: "Good functioning audio visual system and seat was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Same computer glitch problem. Agents even needed help with my ticket and boarding passes. I was in the system but something was scrambled in the computer confirmation codes. Lufthansa said United failed to update their code key. Scary."

Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."

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."

Pros: "Missed connection to RDU"
Cons: "Had to pay out of pocket for a hotel to catch next flight to RDU"

Pros: "Need say thank you to Nathan Robinson at Palm Beach Airport for his kindness and compassion towards me.Exceptional service rendered.Thanks to him I will definitely refer all my friends and colleagues to fly with United Airlines.Pilot and all crew were super.we even arrived earlier.Thanks United Airline Staff."

Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"

Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."

Pros: "Excellent attentive care."
Cons: "My first 5 hour long flight did not have a complimentary snack."

Pros: "Space for legs"
Cons: "Took 30 minutes to get out from aircraft after landing"

Pros: "Clean. Punctual."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Original flight was rebooked, and I almost missed seeing my dying grandmother. Got no apology for this huge inconvenience and stress."

Pros: "I broke my arm and all of the gate agents were wonderful trying and succeeding in getting me A seats for my comfort."

Pros: "I paid to DIRECT TV..... 3 sets of earplugs did not work. No one offered as to how I get my money back. The connection perhaps was not good. However no one tried to help"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable - there was ample leg room. The attendant that was handing out drinks and snacks was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, which I suppose wasn't the worst thing. I've had nicer attendants. Many people had to check bags due to there not being ample room in the overhead compartments, however when I was walking to my seat I couldn't help but notice that many people had stored their purses, backpacks, and jackets in the overhead compartments. Many people in the front didn't have anything at their feet which could have saved at least some people the hassel of having to check their bags when they hadn't planned on checking any at all. When I offered this idea to the flight attendant to see if he couldnt possibly make an announcement or if he could ask if anyone could move their stuff he simple answered "Well you know what? No one cares." Although I can understand that must be very frustrating for him and the other flight attendants, I thought the situation could have been handled a little bit better, perhaps there should be a better plan for a situation like this to make sure the room in the overhead compartments is used in the most efficient way."

Pros: "It was very quick boarding, it may have been a bit confusing though."

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful"
Cons: "all pretty good"

Pros: "Everything went better than expected, no line, easy flights , short layovers. Everything just went smooth."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "The leg room and away sz and low cost of the upgrade"
Cons: "The economy seats are horrible and it was rather hot on the flight"

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: "Getting through the airport was a breeze"
Cons: "My wifi didn't work on board I was completely counting on it to work and I paid for it and it never actually connected me (so I wasted the money and didn't get a refund and I also missed an important online meeting!"

Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."
