Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. The loading went smoothly."
Cons: "The free snack maybe could be a sweet or salt option that is the only thing I could think of."
Pros: "Direct flight! And essentially on time arrival!"
Cons: "Refreshments served not close enough to start of flight. Boarding delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great! Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"
Pros: "Each seat had its own built in free movie option."
Cons: "We were delayed for three hours and they really had no other options and didn't offer any apology gifts in condolence. I had two small children and they didn't even offer a snack."
Cons: "We were packed like sardines in economy class but the in-flight entertainment selection made it bearable."
Pros: "I specifically book with Alaska Airlines bc in all my flights I have never had bad service. Delta, Continental, not so much. The crew was great. We hit quite a bit of turbulence but everyone was calm and the pilot sounded in control so no problem."
Cons: "Tons of empty seats but airfare was still on the high side"
Pros: "How they saw my needs comfort me. She even came from around the desk to hung me. I am so thankful for all who assisted in this time of need . They are great."
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "Fast baggage delivery"
Cons: "Seats too small. Lavatory too small. Sink in lavatory too small"
Pros: "overall great flight - service was over the top flight early arrival"
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and responsive to questions when we were trying to figure out how long it would take to actually leave."
Cons: "We had to wait over an hour and a half to fly out of Nashville due to waiting for fuel to be brought to the plane. It would've been nice to know that we'd be delayed because I was traveling with a pet and I would've preferred to have her walk around the airport before having to place her in her carrier under the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours more than I anticipated."
Pros: "Crew was very good and respectful. The pilot constantly kept informing us of flight route and possible changes. Even made the passengers aware of an amazing light storm outside the aircraft that was impressive sight to see."
Cons: "The seat I sat in felt as though I was slipping off of it. i was constantly having to reposition and get comfortable. My lone issue."
Cons: "No food!!"
Pros: "Flying on a Virgin America plane during the transition and it was a nice comfortable 4 hour flight. No complaints."
Pros: "Smooth. Peaceful. Easy. On time."
Pros: "There seemed to be more legroom than usual and the flight attendants were responsive. There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from and passengers could order from a small selection of free beverages during the flight."
Cons: "A small snack of some sort would have been nice, as would headphones. Despite the selection of films to watch, they had to be viewed as close captioned (which not all were) unless passengers had brought their own headohones. It would also have been pleasant to see even one of the flight attendants smile at least once."
Pros: "Everything and everyone was awesome"
Cons: "You have to purchase snacks. Such a big company and it can’t offer free snack(cookies or pretzels)???"
Pros: "Everyone is so helpful and cheery"
Cons: "Cramped seats not much room. Kisok to check bags hard to use or did work at all"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Not excited about the sausage & egg skillet for breakfast."
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "Direct flighy"
Pros: "Overall excellent service, friendly and professional"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, flight crew was awesome, engaging..."
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Cons: "the meanest most rude racist hostess ever! her insinuations and degrading way of speaking to me left me speechless. i will file a format complaint and might even take it further."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Pros: "Cheese plate was great as always"
Cons: "Late and chaotic boarding. No clear lines and just a mob herding toward the counter to board."
Pros: "Got us to SeaTac on time uneventfully. Flying Q400s now, so smoother ride than previous puddle-jumpers. Quick and easy security screening. Good coffee. Free beer & wine offered. At least one person took 'em up on the offer"
Cons: "5am departure."
Pros: "Crew always kind, professional and efficient."
Pros: "People were friendly doing their jobs."

Pros: "Overall great."
Pros: "Most everything besides them seats being to close in proximity."
Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."
Pros: "Well organized. Efficient. Good round trip BNA-SEA. My first experience with Alaska, but definitely not my last."
Cons: "Very rough landing :("
Pros: "As long as the boarding and crew are professional, and the plane is clean, I'm satisfied. It would be nice if the food wasn't outrageously expensive."
Cons: "Had to check carry on and go to baggage carousel delaying my getting out of the airport"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"
Pros: "it was fine, unremarkable in all ways."
Pros: "Once boarding began, things were fine"

Pros: "Quick dmooth service"
Pros: "The quality of the JetBlue team was the best I have experienced in years on ANY airline, domestic or international!"
Cons: "Nothing, it could not have gone better."
Cons: "The first flight was severely delayed, leaving me only 2 minutes to catch my connecting flight. There was no warning or good explanation for the hour delay on the tarmac. The original connection would have left me with about an hour for a layover, which I was fine with. Thankfully, the assigned gate for the second flight was close to the entrance. I almost didn’t make it, though."
Pros: "When the flight finally boarded it was quick"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours with no explanation of why... Flight attendants were rude and annoyed."
Pros: "I love flying JetBlue great job to all you were employees"
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like is that it didn’t stop in West Palm Beach and that could cause a problem with my next trip to Florida Bluejay take a couple of times a year to take care of my 89-year-old mother"
Cons: "I am an no carbs diet and I was hoping for low carb snack but nothing was available"
Pros: "The steward had a sense of humor which always helps."
Cons: "There wasn’t anyone at the JetBlue check in area to take bags when I arrived about two hours before the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Got home at 3am. Ruined the next day getting in so late"
Pros: "Although inconvenient, Capt kept us fully appraised. Excellent crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good legroom. Big delay so I did not get to sleep at hotel until 2 am. The flight was very bumpy. The delay was not posted in the airport monitors. Only found out when I got to gate. Flight attendants had blankets to sell on a cold plane that warmed up as the flight progresses."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "staff not telling the truth to the passengers"
Pros: "Great service from the crew and in flight snacks and entertaininment."

Pros: "Everything was great. Very pleased, couldn’t have been better."
Pros: "Having an A320 on a 2 hour nonstop"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Pros: "The flight was normal. The crew was nice and the flight itself was painless."
Cons: "There were only two flights, one to my and one to Boston. My bag went to the wrong place and the way they handled it was disgusting. Making us run around the airport with no answers and nobody wanting to check the conveyer belt. Then they said if they found it they would let me know. They found the bag and they said by 6:30. Well, 6:30 passed and they had my bag but they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered and they use a third party company who they didn't have a contact number for or any answer as to when it would be delivered (I needed several things for work so it was a rush). Lastly, the lady I spoke to on the phone said it was my fault that I would not be there to receive the bag the following day as they did what they are supposed to. I was really surprised with how bad this customer service was as a whole. No communication and just nasty."
Pros: "My daughter has a very severe peanut allergy. She was treated very well on her flight yesterday. Even though Jet Blue doesn't serve peanuts on their flights, they still gave her a pre-boarding pass so she could wipe down her area just in case someone on an earlier flight had something that could have caused a reaction. They also created a "barrier" around her by specifically talking to people in the seats around her and asking that they not open their own snacks that may contain peanut or peanut products. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jet Blue!!! We will definitely use you again!!"
Pros: "Departure was almost on time, but they made up for it by arriving early. All in all an excellent flight."
Cons: "Really don't have a complaint, crew was excellent, only thing I could nitpick would be slightly late departure.. But again we more than made up for that in flight"
Pros: "I missed the flight as my first flight got delayed. When I got to the gate there was no Turkishairlines representative. 12 hours after the flight still at airport without any clear answer from Turkish airways."
Cons: "Zero costumer service. Knowing that I might miss my first leg I checked the possible next flights and even though there are two flights next day, the prices tripled in 2 hour (from 1300 to 3900 USD). When I asked for rebook I was told that there is no available seat in any of those two flights. Did a quick search and found out there are seats but are left to milk desperate passengers."
Pros: "average trip: boarding, timeliness, uneventful (what you wish for on a flight)"
Cons: "-Entertainment system wasn't working, so made for a long 6 hours. -Flight crew weren't self-aware - had conversations with each other in loud voices at the back of the plane that could be heard by passengers several rows away. Many people were trying to sleep with no entertainment system working."
Cons: "Crew not so pleasant No food"
Pros: "Everything about Jet Blue was excellent. Especially impressive was their baggage handling. In Ft. Meyers, my bag was on the baggage claim before I got there. In Newark, where baggage claim in usually lousy, my bag was there in less than 5 minutes. I'm definitely going to fly Jet Blue more. Lew"
Pros: "I like the boarding process which they board the end of the aircraft first (row 20-25) then move up (15-25) then up. I think it's very sufficient. The entertainment was good even though I thought more choices can be available"
Cons: "The seat is super uncomfortable... I couldn't sleep at all even though I was very tired...."
Pros: "Smooth event the entire way"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, going out of their way to find spots for the few people left who still had carry on baggage. They tried very hard to make sure everyone had their luggage with them, which I thought was very nice as I have not seen that in any other airplane. They were also very polite and generous with the snacks and drinks, and came around multiple times with garbage bags."
Cons: "The plane itself was incredibly old and the seats were worn down with marks and smudges. It smelled quite bad but at least the TV's still worked."
Pros: "Great service... excellent smooth flight."
Cons: "Rows of seats are too close together and small seats for an international flight and I am a small person!"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Cons: "Seats that don't recline especially when the person in front of you can recline. They end up in your lap"
Cons: "This delay made me miss my rental car reservation so I have to find another car for the night. Which cost me 100$ when I already had a car booked. Then since I didn't get there in time they canceled my reservation and find a new rental for the week. First bad experience with jet blue"
Cons: "The positioning of the TV controls on the top of the armrest means that it becomes useless as an armrest. I had to hold my right arm in the air so the passenger next to Me could use his controls. I was in a middle seat. The fix would Be to have the controls on the side Of the armrest like on most other airlines"
Cons: "Flight attendants and First mate didn't show up on time, they called in the reserves, Then got on plane with them and the planes logs weren't up to date, the grounds crew then left to do another plane. Once we got off, we were informed that NJ airspace was restricted at the later departure time, and had to fly extremely out of the way. 1:45 later and arrived to destination, Missed train and and stuck now."
Pros: "The customer service was great. They compensated me for the delay. The seats were spacious."
Cons: "A 6 hour flight delay. Luckily me for my connecting flight wasn't until the following afternoon. Had it been earlier I would have been extremely upset because it could have derailed my entire travel plans."
Pros: "Crew were great, loved having spare seats....Just a very welcoming flight."
Cons: "My screen on the Nashville to LA wouldn't let me watch the movie I wanted too but everything else was great. Glad they were there to get me home to Australia when other airlines weren't!"
Pros: "The snacks and water were great. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Middle seat was empty"
Pros: "Funny. Kind. attentive."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Very attentive and engaging crew."
Cons: "really nothing!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, our connecting flight was at the same gate!"
Cons: "Would always love more room in comfort class."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The plane was an outdated jalopy. I thought the exit doors were going to fly off. This was in vast contrast to the 737 plane that we had taken earlier in the day for a flight from BNA to ATL."
Cons: "My hard shell suitcase was broken during the process not sure when or where. Items in my suitcase were also damaged. The seats are so close together that it was very hard. If you are a bigger person I recommend flying first class."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "They lost my bags in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment behind the seat"
Cons: "Overall it was a great fight on time boarding. Earlier arrival to norfolk than advertised Excellent crew. This is my 3rd time flying Delta I’m impressed."
Pros: "Getting to my destination."
Cons: "Leg room, more room for carry on bags, coats, etc."
Pros: "Amazing crew & comfortable seats."
Cons: "Flight Delayed > Pilot on Connecting Flight"
Pros: "Excelent flight excelent service.."
Cons: "The entrance in the gate to the plane always disorganized"
Pros: "There was no flight booked by Kayak although I paid for my trip. I’ve addressed this 3 times & still have yet to receive a call from customer Service."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Everything was excellent . The food was good The crews were friendly courteous and professional. The planes were well maintained and comfortable. Everything but one thing was excellent"
Cons: "The one thing that I didn’t like is that I have a disability and cant walk very well so I requested a wheelchair and assistance to the plane. Everywhere the service was impeccable except for Nashville I never did get the wheelchair and had to walk to the gate My back hurt me for most of the next 24 hours. In my own country I was treated the worst."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"
Cons: "Really rough landing"
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "First time back in about 15 years and what an improvement. Customer service is important to Delta and it shows."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work for me at first."
Cons: "Gas fume on the back seats are horrible"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive crew and attendants."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit rushed and the gate agent was visibly irritated by some passengers who didn’t check their bags."
Pros: "The plane had mechanical so we had a long delay. No fun"
Cons: "My luggage was sent to another city"
Pros: "It’s was super smooth! Fast service and great customer service."
Cons: "The intercom was a little messed up."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess at MCO with too many gates close together all boarding at the same time and no seating."
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "I got to fly where I needed to go."
Cons: "The vents above my entire row of seats did not work, meaning there was never any air coming out even when they were fully open. This made for a long, hot, claustrophobic ride. The flight attendants seemed first disbelieving and later unconcerned that no air came out of our vents. I doubt they even reported them as broken after the flight. Delta's new boarding process is absolute chaos. More than half the plane had no seats assigned until 20 minutes before boarding, and the seats were displayed on a screen a good 25 feet away from the gate, meaning people had to constantly walk back and forth between the doorway and the screen. The gate agents were clearly overwhelmed. If this is how Delta is organized now, I won't be flying on them again."
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Cons: "Delta staff taking care of rude/beligerant guests first vedore guests patiently/kindly waiting in line ... children watched that behavior and the jerks recieved special treatment. Flight staff ripped up guests boarding pass in face. Staff allowed ys to board plane and put our bags under plane and then crew timed out before take off. Never will use Delta again."
Pros: "Seating and boarding were fine. That process was relatively quick/straightforward"
Cons: "I have never had an on time Delta flight, and hopefully, it will happen one day"
Pros: "Happy with the choices of movies available"
Cons: "All was good, possibly add healthier food options"
Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Cons: "Delta's entertainment app does not work with Kindle Fire"
Pros: "It was good"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Delta customer service- terrible when I called about reservation. Agent upon arrival at airport clearly not happy about 5am shift."
Cons: "727 modern plane free movie free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Pros: "When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond."
Cons: "The airport crew at the check-in desk was rude"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"
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."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Cons: "Waiting for luggage"
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "The crew was great. The plane was clean. Both flights were on time and went very well."
Cons: "The one thing I must say could be better is limiting people to one carry on bag. There were a few people that held up the boarding process because they had more than one bag and they were trying to find a open slot in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "very organized boarding process"
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew barrels down the isle with the cart on am already cramped plane. LAX construction consistently causes ridiculous waits on the tarmac after landing. The deplaning process was super slow."
Cons: "The landing was very rough from Nashville to Dallas"
Cons: "Didn’t get my whole can of soda and pretzels are cardboard."
Cons: "No seat power, poor connection for movies and they kept freezing"
Pros: "Great flying great time"

Cons: "Everything was good, no complaints."
Cons: "Customer service was AWFUL after our flight was delayed from Nashville to Dallas causing us to miss our connecting flight to Bozeman. I will definitely NOT be coming back to American Airlines after that experience."

Pros: "Great crew very friendly"
Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Everything else"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "I miss friendly Southwest. Even the assigned seat is kit enough for me to use AA again. People smile at Southwest and seem to enjoy their job."
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Cons: "Need to change up the videos accessable by WiFi."
Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."
Cons: "No audio in business. No working electric outlet."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Cons: "I bought through an affiliate (bought British, flew American) and was not redirected properly to the check in process. In fact I was locked out of the check in process for "unsuccessful attempts""
Cons: "As always, just too many damn people on the plane. Who are all of these people? What are they doing?"
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "That's it."
Pros: "Narrow aisle and seating. Attendant looking at his phone the entire time we were getting ready to take off as well during taxiing and takeoff. Unbelievable!"
Pros: "Well done again!"
Pros: "Everything lined up perfectly"
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Cons: "Late late late"
Pros: "I got an upgrade which was nice. The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Ran out of popcorn but really nothing"

Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "There is not enough room in economy seats for a comfortable ride. I think there should be more free snack options on flights."
Cons: "Very crowded and had to take the rear seats but otherwise OK."
Pros: "On time. Efficient on and off plane. Didn’t hassle me about my carry on."
Cons: "The flight crew’s non challent attitude"
Pros: "There were too many people. It seems United is trying to put more seats to make more money. Giving more uncomfortable to passengers."
Cons: "The company forced me to put my luggage out of the plane, which I found strange. On my first flight in this roundtrip they let me have my carry-on without any problems. If they are going to have policies, they should be standards and they should stick to one thing instead of doing different things in different flights."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"

Pros: "The second lady that helped me, Michelle Reilly, was SUPER helpful. I am so thankful for her"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines"
Pros: "Plane travel is not my favorite, but I was impressed at how smoothly everything went. Had some decent coffee and a delicious caramel-filled cookie during flight that made me very happy. Loved having a female pilot and power receptacles in each row, too."

Pros: "The flight crew and staff in Nashville were great about the delay"
Cons: "That it was delayed but out of United control"
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."

Pros: "Nonstop BNA-SFO"
Cons: "United Economy Plus bulkhead was awful. I was seated in seat 7D - there was no bulkhead for me or middle seat - just a curtain. The screens and tiny pockets were only accessible over another passenger. The seat stuck out into the aisle so I was bumped by 200 other passengers at least once - not to mention the flight crew. Finally I had my emotional support dog with me and the crew told me I should. It be in that seat - the seat was assigned by the United Accessibikity Desk as a good one for a service animal - and I had zero choice in the matter. Baggage claim at SFO took over 45 minutes to start -I was home in San Francisco in only 20 minutes after getting my bag."
Pros: "Snack pack, Direct TV, more leg room"
Cons: "Flight was a little rocky on landing"
Cons: "Mechanical problems made flight late. Got to connecting gate 1 min before scheduled departure. Doors closed. Agent said they close doors 10 minutes before flight leaves, so I had no chance. United not overly helpful with alternate flights and arrangements. To make business mtgs, I asked to fly to alternate airport and drive in. United no help with rental car. Had to be very persistent to get a hotel room covered."

Pros: "The option to control my personal tv."
Cons: "Bad service. I was ignored when I it was time to order a drink. The attendant scolded me for using my service button. I wouldn't have used it if they hadn't entirely skipped my row. There were three of us sitting debit cards in hand to order drinks. The same attendant was very rude to a family with a small child and a man trying to put away his baggage at the start of the flight. I will avoid united in the future if possible."
