It would have been nice if it was Alaska Airlines, but it was United Express

One of the hardest landings I’ve been a part of. Also seats are terribly uncomfortable and we sat on the taxiway for 30 extra minutes because there were no gates available.

Cons: "Great trip, thank you 😊"
Cons: "Such great staff!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The flight was nearly full. They announced this and said that if anyone was uncomfortable being seated next to someone not in their party (due to COVID concerns) they would book them on the next available flight. At that point, you're really kinda stuck hoping the person your seated next to is taking the proper precautions, but you are not "social distanced" during the flight. I don't consider myself a COVID prude, but I will stick with Southwest Airlines during this pandemic. They are keeping their flights at 2/3 capacity in order to maintain distance among passengers on their flights."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Friendly professional crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were cool"
Cons: "Lady who accepted boarding passes was rude, seats were snug"
Cons: "There was no one at the front desks when we arrived for at least 30mins."
Cons: "This sucks due to delay"
Cons: "Landing can be better."
Pros: "Everything good !"
Cons: "Cheaper"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing & super friendly. They have a 20 minute bag guarantee so you get your checked luggage super fast."
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: "Seats were comfy"
Cons: "Not having to switch planes"
Pros: "I do quite a bit of traveling, and experience different airlines both domesticat and international. Alaska continues to impress me, and over-delivers highly on all fronts! I always look forward to my trips when I get to travel on Alaskan Air!"
Pros: "Friendly crew Hard cider Easy loading, organized Cart for carry on luggage"
Cons: "Small storage area on board at seat & for carry-ons Seats were crowded , small , close together Noisy sitting in row 4 or 5 near propellers/ engines"
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: "This is the worst day of the year to travel. Hundreds of people waiting to catch flights to Seattle, which were delayed with no news of when they might fly. Alaska Airlines staff had way too to handle, but still found time to help a disabled person/passenger in need. Thank you."
Cons: "TSA had no time to help a disabled person, rather abruptly sending me from line to line to line, because I was disqualified from going through walk-through a certain scanner. Then was un-necessarilly angry with me for putting my Kindle on top of my laptop, to go through the scanner. If TSA had given clearer directions, I would have known how to place electronic devices in the plastic tub. Also they took my wallet from me to go through the scanned by itself. As TSA staff pushed belongings down the conveyor, the little dish holding my wallet turned over, credit cards and the like started to fall all over and under the machine. I started to collect my congtents and was told to stay put, and hold out my hands so they could swab my hands for explosives, and to not move while they put the swab in their sensing machine. Makes me want to not fly in the future."
Pros: "Please be advised entertainment and food should have an NA next to them in my case"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "On time, always well informed, decent snack and drinks, nice attendants, plenty of legroom in premier and I like the way we can use our own devices for entertainment. If you forgot yours Alaska has something you can use for a small fee."
Cons: "We sat in premier and would have liked to use the restroom in front instead of going all the way to the back. Using a restroom should never be an issue."
Pros: "My flight was great. The flight attendants were very good. I How they enforced the rules. They did it in a professional way that was direct but not bossy. The pilots were great. The landing was so good. My son called it “buttering the bread”."
Cons: "My only complaint was that my complimentary alcoholic beverage was a very small pour. I had a glass of Chardonnay and for the price I paid to upgrade my seat to premium, it should have been a larger pour or at least a refill!"
Pros: "I splurged and purchased the first class upgrade as i am tall and it was a very long flight. Loved the legroom and service i received."
Cons: "Went through the boarding process and then we all waited in the line outside the plane for some time. They obviously were not ready to board the plane which was difficult for some of the elderly now standing in line. I had a planned dinner in sacramento which was a main reason i took this long layover and due to leaving 2 hours late i missed the dinner which had to be canceled. This was very important to me. The 75$ discount given to me on a future flight is not going to replace the time off work and the dinner which will now have to wait for anither trip to the mainland."
Pros: "Everyone is so friendly, flights on time, flight info updates sent to my phone."
Cons: "Would love phone charging capabilities at our seat."
Pros: "Staff is always helpful"
Cons: "seats too tight"
Pros: "I ended up with a free premium seat, which mean free wine and snacks. Free in flight chat on Facebook messenger was great, and I appreciated the extra legroom. It would be been worth the extra 30 bucks if I had paid for it."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous service. Different from other airlines, the flight crew did not seem exhausted and overworked."
Pros: "It was smooth flying and made my wife at ease specially it was her very first time flying ever. Will fly Alaska airlines again."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "All the staff member were really kind and helpful. The boarding and the unboarding was made smoothly."
Cons: "The seat are a bit uncomfortable and theres not much leg room for tall people."
Pros: "The flights were on time. You get to try a local North West beer or glass of wine. And you can ship a case of wine free."
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: "Love Alaska, generally. Service is great, love that you get perks with their credit card."
Cons: "Our direct flight was canceled the night before (less than 12 hours prior to the flight. Did get rescheduled on an acceptable 1 stop flight plan, but I'm always upset there is never any sort of concession or discount or any sort of compensation for these types of inconveniences. Bad business -- this isn't a knock on Alaska, really, as it's true of all airlines, as far as I know. But it still sucks."
Cons: "$25 per checked bag then you offer people a chance to check them for free? now that I have been hoodwinked out of money, I'll know how to play the game"
Cons: "Snack two slim cookie wafers. Would prefer choice of salty or sweet snack that is slightly larger than those offered."
Cons: "The return flight was late, the walk way to board the plan was wet, many people were asked to check their bags because the returning plane was smaller."
Pros: "This was one of the best flights I have taken! It was smooth start to finish, the plane was clean, and the staff was excellent! Thank you Alaska Airlines!"
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: "Alaska Airline personal are professional and helpful."
Cons: "TSA is a disgusting experience, though I understand it's importance in this unsafe time in history. But, the TSA personell often seem to be bickering among themselves while they are suppose to be working."
Pros: "After custom, I put my check-in luggages to connecting flight conveyer, I was told to go to gate without boarding pass. I was concerned about availability of seat. I was waiting more than 1 hour at gate but no crew showed up. It was about 1 hour before scheduled flight to Sacramento. So I asked nearby crew again, I was told then to go to Alaska Airline customer service. The crew was very helpful to give me a boarding pass there."
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: "I like that the pilot is in the cabin doorway to greet the people. PERSONALIZES it. NOT like Wizard of Oz behind the curtain. I APPRECIATED THAT HE ANNOUNCED WHEN WE FLEW OVER MT RANIER AND MT ST HELENS. I wish other pilots would tell us the landmarks...thank you to all!!"
Pros: "I liked the direct flight."
Cons: "We returned to Sacramento, and my bag was "lost". The bag attendant suggested it was hung up on the belt. Our neighbors had to circle the airport while we dealt with her. We went home without my bag. Thirty minutes after we were home, the bag attendant called and said they had my bag. We returned to the airport to pick it up because they could/would not guarantee that it would be delivered safely. The attendant said that it was there on another belt. NOT, because I actually checked before we left. Then, she didn't want to give us the Measly $50 voucher. Ugh, still upset a week later."
Pros: "Her flight in to Seattle from Sacramento went very smoothly."
Cons: "She missed her flight after several Alaska Airlines employees directed her to wrong lines to check her bags, she does not have a credit card so she just wanted to pay cash but no one seemed to know how to help her for over an hour. Just really put a damper on a Birthday trip to visit me."
Pros: "The entertainment portion was very nice easy to navigate. The staff was attentive and the food was ok and plentiful."
Cons: "The staff did not speak very good English and certainly lacked any smiles. Both flights where late arriving. Bathrooms half way through definitely needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "It was a great flight. The attendants were great. The captive was informative."
Cons: "They needed a little more space in the seats and the Isle could be a bit wider also. When the carts were going threw it did limit the restrooms. But overall it was a great experience."
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: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."
Pros: "On the ground ..TSA said I needed a new boarding pass..3 kiosck wouldn't. Work. Friendly re sent me to Alaska desk where they printed me a new boarding pass but when I went to TSA. I had no passport. Sooooo..back to t he Alaska desk and a wonderful rep named Diane helped me hunt through all my "stuff"...then began talking to all reps helping process passengers. She never gave up. And found my passport at the desk that had made me a new boarding pass. I was so upset I couldn't think straight but she did!, many thanks to this kind lady."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I they had negetive stars I would use them. From Jessica at check-in in Maui to the flight attendants. Alaska air needs to retrain their employees on customer service. I'm not sure if something was going on or the employees don't like their jobs but what's horrible experience."

Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"

Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."

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: "nothing"
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"
Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
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"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed because there was a mechanical issue on the plane. We sat and waited on the plane for 1 hour while the Maintenance crew tried fixing the problem. After sitting there for one hour, they told us the problem wasn’t fixed and we have to change aircrafts. The other aircraft was all the way in terminal D (we were in terminal A) and the boarding process took a long time. Overall it was an awful flight and experience with American Airlines. I missed my mother’s birthday party because of the 2 hour delay."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Everything was great. I especially liked the enter active map that showed some towns and lakes we flew over and the speed and elevation of the aircraft."
Cons: "More details on the map, for example, show landforms, mountain ranges, major roadways, rivers, etc."
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Horrible !!!"
Cons: "Be on time !!!!"
Pros: "I didn’t interact with the crew but they seems nice."
Cons: "The trip from HonoluIu to Los Angeles was too warm."
Cons: "The WiFi I was terrible other than that great flight"
Cons: "Be on time. Plus we were in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passenger more seat room."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, comfortable and staff was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Andres was so nice. Amazing actually"
Cons: "They boarded us then we had to switch planes. Delayed an hour"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"
Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "Late on hour"
Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff by 1 hour waiting for a crew to fly in. Upon crew arrival, new crew member states that there are standby crew available and he's not sure why they didn't call on them. Then we continued to wait for 3 more passengers who were delayed and now had a chance to board our flight. Once landed, gate was occupied by yet another flight running late so we waited for 15 minutes to get to the gate."
Cons: "Hour delay"
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
Cons: "Because of airline delay and increased immigration wait time, we missed our flight. No compensation but we were connected to another flight to Sac. 1-1/2 hours later, which worked out okay, except we got home very late at night."
Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."
Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"
Cons: "Left with plenty of time but: -Terrible traffic! More than 3 hrs -Had to wait 30 min for shuttle -At airport they said flight was via American, other terminal. My paper from Kayak says Air Alaska -Terminal for flight uses separate bldg so shuttles to terminal , more time needed."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Pros: "Dunno"
Cons: "Dunno"
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "I could not change the flight with less payment so I missed the flight and booked another one."
Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"
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: "yes"
Cons: "the plane's seating"
Pros: "Great service. Attendants were very kind."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the WiFi to work"
Pros: "Lot of space nice flight professional crews"
Cons: "N/A"
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!"
Cons: "Again United ugh! They took us to the gate where we had a 4 hour layover. We watched an emergency happening at the gate (not their fault) which caused delays at that gate. When it was getting close to the time for our flight and they were still boarding an earlier flight, I checked with them to see if ours would be delayed. They had changed the gate without making an announcement. We had to get ourselves to the new gate with barely time to spare. They never turned the seatbelt light off for the trip so we could not use the restroom"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I loved going through US customs in Ireland, so that it made my connection to my USA flight a breeze."
Cons: "Too many crying babies and children. (Flights need a section for young children and infants.) I can handle a 2 hour flight, but not 6+ hours of constant noise) I did not use it, but the entertainment system kept locking up and the flight attendants needed to reboot. If I had been depending on this entertainment it would not have been good. The flight attendants did not come through the cabin enough to pick up trash."
Cons: "Temp was way too hot. Made for a long flight."
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: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarded on the tarmac when it was cold and windy and in no particular order so it was a long time standing in the cold"
Pros: "Being a nonstop flight."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Luggage delay"
Pros: "We arrive a half hour early."
Pros: "Greed and sensitive environment....Airlines should ask for height/weight to better assign seating. Airlines could charge two large adults extra space fee and thus split the cost of the middle seat so that way they have more room and share the cost of breathing room and a consumer is not wedged between them."
Cons: "Greed and sensitive environment....Airlines should ask for height/weight to better assign seating. Airlines could charge two large adults extra space fee and thus split the cost of the middle seat so that way they have more room and share the cost of breathing room and a consumer is not wedged between them."
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Plane was hot. Light sweat almost whole flight"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long walk to gate"
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!"
Pros: "Great crew, boarding process, drink service"
Cons: "No entertainment or food served on flight for free"
Cons: "Flights from SMF to ORD to IND included on board flight entertainment at no cost. Flight from IND to ORD it was included. However from ORD back to SMF there was a fee. For the amount of money paid for the flight and for someone on a tight budget, this was extremely disappointing."
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: "Customer service was terrible. I was told I was not their customer and they wouldn't help me. When the agents sent me away for the 2nd time, after promising to hold the door, I returned and the agent closed it in my face."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smaller plane enhanced comfort"
Cons: "Did not use entertainment app"
Pros: "Close gate our connection."
Cons: "More trouble and delay on take off."
Pros: "Same as above. I miss the old days of magazines as some of us cannot pay for the Wi-Fi"
Cons: "You have very good crew people. There was a male flight Ttendant Chicago to Sac whoncalmlynand deftly handled a grouchy passenger People get testy on long uncomfortable flights. He handled this guy very well."
Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Staff in main cabin was nasty"
Cons: "Understandable they could not help about weather, but was terrible about keeping us updated."
Pros: "Quick flight, beautiful day, interesting company sitting next to me very pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and they were offering vouchers for later flights, wasn't a bad thing, though, I'd have done it."
Pros: "No bad weather, no bad experiences, all good."
Cons: "Again, N/A"
Pros: "I got another window seat and the refreshments were good."
Cons: "I wasnt able to recline my seat and not much leg room."
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful"
Cons: "all pretty good"
Pros: "Consistenty"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and we took a small bus instead. It took over 2 hours after the flight was cancelled for us to be on a bus to make the 90 min drive to Sacramento. Horrible, I wish I would have paid for a bus ticket instead of paying for a flight."
Cons: "My family member and I were separated and both stuck with a middle seat--no option to pick your own seat; unable to precheck online."
Pros: "Nice and smooth. There was an issue with the plane but they transitioned us quickly and I was impressed that we were hardly delayed."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"
Cons: "The running to the next plane in 15 min because of the delay the landing was hard"
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."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation or communication."
Pros: "The attendant was very nice, professional and friendly. My flight was only an hour."
Pros: "The seats on the E175 were more comfortable than those on other RJs."
Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"
Cons: "Our seats and boarding passes were given to two other people! How can someone else board a plane with our names on the boarding passes?!"
Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."
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: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
