Cons: "They switched gates and were a half an hour late, it’s was chaotic"
Pros: "The snack was a whole sandwich that was quite tasty and in my opinion far better than the two meals I was served on my US to Europe flight on Condor.

Cons: "Neck massage would be nice :)"

Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."
Pros: "Didn't utilize food or entertainment"

Cons: "There wasn't anything I disliked."
Pros: "I enjoyed it :)"
Pros: "The space, seat, cleanliness,friendly pilot, airport assistance, tsa wh helped me approx 4::30 pm at Ontario Airport but not the snotty one who tried to take my water bottle after flight delayed teo hours & had special permission to go back thru security to eat. Needed water bottle because diabetic & recovering from pneumania. Did not like the patting down because I had a Kotex pad on. Wierd. Love flying Alaska Air."

Pros: "My first time on Alaska. I usually fly JetBlue or Virgin. They had great entertainment options (you have to use your laptop or cellphone) and free wifi for messaging. They staff were especially accommodating and hospitable."
Pros: "Flight on time and not over booked. Informative captain. Excellent prices."
Cons: "Lacking elbow room."
Cons: "Delay on the front in. When we finally arrived in Seattle, they didn't even have the jetway pulled up due to a miscommunication. This required many more minutes of waiting."

Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating. Flight was good and on time."
Cons: "I had arrived from Ft. McMurray more than 3 hours before my connection, but was was paged for a search just 30 minutes before my flight boarded.

Cons: "The drink men I had to set with"
Pros: "Despite the poor rating because of the mechanical issue, I will say the pilots did a fantastic job with some pretty choppy air conditions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour while we were already on the plane. Minor mechanical issue that could’ve been handled at destination. The seat was super uncomfortable and I would’ve appreciated at least some more from the crew, like maybe even a bottle of water or something."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."

Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."
Cons: "This flight was completely messed up and ultimately ruined my connection and subsequent travel plans. We were told there was a 30 minute delay because of the pilot and shortly after we were told to deplane. I had to cancel. rebook with another airline while my bag traveled to Boston"
Pros: "Front area had nice amount of leg room. Back was so tight i couldnt even reach my bag under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "$20 for wifi is a rip off!! Delta includes free wifi on international flights. Some prople need to work and paying for internet on an 8.5 hour trip was ridiculous. Food options were not that great either. Pasta was supposed to be vegetable pasta but no veggies to be found. Not healthy options."
Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."

Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine and the inflight entertainment provided good entertainment."
Cons: "From the begining the trip was plagued by delays. I was supposed to leave Monterey at 0600, we didnt leave until 0630. Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection. Lastly, they had to change a break on the plane leaving Charlotte so instead of getting home at 7 like i was supposed to, i got into Norfolk at 1139 pm."

Cons: "Had to wait for pilot coming from Mexico flight for 20 mins after everyone boarded"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Pros: "This wasn't a British Airlines flight! We ended up being on a crappy, ancient American Airlines flight instead of the BA flight we had booked. It is very duplicitous to purchase a ticket for an airline with a great reputation and end up on a genuinely lousy flight on a totally different airline (especially one like American, that I would never book!)."
Pros: "It was a great flight. We took off right away and were able to get off the plane immediately at LAX."
Cons: "We were delated in leaving, which made my connecting flight a little tight. It was stressful."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."
Cons: "The gate the flight was originally on changed, however there was never an announcement made over the intercom advising of the change. When the gate I was waiting at finally showed the flight information to Toledo, I had to find what gate I my flight was now on and had fifteen minutes to make it to the correct gate. Had the original gate displayed the new information any later I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "No TVs in the seats to entertain the kids."
Cons: "When I got to the terminal there was no Iberia flight. Stuff from other flight company told me Iberia does not operate anymore. Shocked. I asked the stuff what to do, they called on the phone for me and told me their flights was transferred to American Airlines instead in another terminal. When I walked to the other terminal I was already too late. Paid $300 extra for rebooking. No one picked up the phone when I called service either. Never trusting this company again. Worst experience had."
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Cons: "Surly, bossy manner of gate crew"
Cons: "Did not get to finish the movie I was watching on my first flight and movies were not offered on this flight."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."

Pros: "Easy not very busy airports makes boarding easy. Pay extra for seat but I can choose where to sit+++ Cost was very favorable for flight"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There was a ton of turbulence"
Cons: "Taking 48 hours to get home and it would have taken longer if I didn't insist on being put on standby. Being told it was probably "god's will" that my flightless canceled."
Pros: "I like that they had a TV show showing at no extra cost"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable, I've been on planes before but after an hours I couldn't get comfortable at all."
Pros: "Wasn't over booked"
Cons: "No entertainment no offer to up grade"
Cons: "When I noticed on the itinerary that the layover only gave me 35 minutes I knew it would be a problem. I missed my flight and never got to Pensacola . AA staff were not very Empathetic. It seems to happen often. I'm in a hotel and praying that my flight leaves today."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Took forever to get plane boarded and we left late for no reason. Seat is like a brick."
Pros: "Only one word can be used to describe my experiences with American Airlines: seamless. From beginning to end, my trip with American Airlines was a relaxing experience."
