The crew was fabulous! I lost my reading glasses and the flight attendants actually found me a pair to use on the flight. They were soooo kind!!

I wish there was a tv on the flight

Seats have a lot of room and staff is great.

No coffee or tea available on second beverage service on BOTH FLIGHTS. Announced as "coffee heater broken". (on both flights?!) Very limited food for purchase on board.

Everything poor

I loved having an empty seat next to me. Everything was fine on flight. But bathrooms could have been cleaner

There was a passenger on our flight with a peanut allergy so no one was allowed to eat any nuts throughout the 5+ hour flight. As that was most of the food we brought on with us, that limited what we were able to have or get from the snack cart and no additional food options were offered instead. I am pregnant and can’t go that long without eating and was told I had needed to order food 20 hours ahead of the flight. This policy should be made more to obvious to passengers in the future.

Clean new airplane. Efficient service. Took off and landed on time.

4+ hour flight delay, lack of updates in ever lengthening delays

Easy flight. Left on time. Arrived prime. Crew was informative when we hit turbulence.

I missed the flight and no one could help. I had to wait 9 hours in the airport and buy a new ticket

Plane was old. Bathroom dirty. Wifi not working.

Cons: "We sat onboard for two hours not being told at first what the holdup was. We were then told there was an issue getting a motorized wheelchair stored in cargo. The only indication about the delay was this. If a customer is traveling with this need I would presume the airline knows in advance so why was it a problem and a surprise which delayed a plane full of people for two hours. People missed connections etc. Not good! And barely any updates"
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice and helpful"

Pros: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports. And the flight attendants were so rude, a simple question was met with short, hostile replies and rhetorical questions instead of friendly respnoses. I WILL NEVER FLY ALASKA AIR AGAIN."
Cons: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports.

Pros: "I'm an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters."
Cons: "Late departure, no headphones on board (thus no access to movies etc), and while waiting at gate to depart, plane became very hot with no airflow, Electronic ordering system for drinks also was not working And it’s absurd that a 6.5 hour flight has no snacks or food offered. Cheap Branson."

Pros: "The seat was good, snacks is good."
Cons: "I wish the crew would did a little more to ask the people behind me stop playing the loud music and talking loud. Also rap music with bad language with children next to it is not a good idea.

Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "The crew and ground staff were accomodating."
Pros: "I liked that they offered quality and complimentary snacks and how they didn't make a big deal if we wanted like 2 tob4 servings of water as i get extremely dehydrated. Staff was friendly and their boarding times and door closing times were clearly printed on the b pass which i appreciated. If only their frequent flier numbers were partnered with more programs. Seats were clean and were connected so you cpukd watch tv and recharge your phone. Good variety of movies!"
Cons: "I think they charged for blankets but at least it wasnt freezing like AA"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew Fairly comfortable seats (14E/F)"

Pros: "Had everything you need to keep you occupied for a long trip. Plenty ful snacks. Great service"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Delayed for too long"
Pros: "Kindness all around from gate agent who gave us lovely seats even though my husband caught in morass of pre-holiday TSA line to flight attendant who we saw first hand give superlative care to man traveling with 2 children, one of whom had very high medical needs and required lots of accessible supplies. Comfy seats and great communication just seem to go without saying at Jet Blue."
Cons: "TSA at JFK was having a rough night"
Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Entertainment and timeliness of the departure and arrival."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Great choice of movies Terra blue chips Crew"
Cons: "Seats are too cramp, but all airlines seem to be like this now. Food options were very limited on our flights which were a letdown. Only snacks available for 5-6 hour flights, no meals like advertised in the pamphlets."
Pros: "The good news is that the width and legroom, even for a middle seat, was better than most airlines. The bad news is that the seat was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in. My partner and I both had backaches after our flight across the country."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The single terminal that seemed only for JetBlue. The staff were friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour and a half. The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in. Bucket seats are the norm on planes but they are so bad for the back. Even a seat that was straight up & down would be better than a back rest that has the exact opposite curves on it to totally not match the spine."
Cons: "Tv didn't work"
Pros: "On schedule"
Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"
Cons: "Information on the flight delay as communication was. at least very poor. Also A 220 was ok but First Class was so so"

Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "The crew was great."

Pros: "Awesome crew!"
Cons: "Faster lines at check-in. More courteous security personnel"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom.

Pros: "Choice of Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Bigger snacks - 2 small cookies or small pack of almonds was indigenous 2 hr flight"
Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "entertainment and leg room on regular seats"
Cons: "delay, boarding process"
Pros: "No delay and friendly crew!"
Cons: "Not much leg room and the coffee was horrific."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I was in first class. Neither food option sounded appealing. Recommend keeping things a bit simpler to appeal to more people. Flight was 90 minutes later"
Pros: "It was everything you look for on a plane. Friendly crew. Lots of space. Clean. Lots of entertainment. Plenty of space for luggage."
Cons: "I loved it all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed longer than the actual flight time. Smallest plane I have ever been in in my life."

Cons: "like to see a bit better snacks"
Cons: "My seat was taken by another person and the crew member was not very helpful with getting the issue resolved"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "No meal service in first class."
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Pros: "Plane is great. Comfortable."
Cons: "The staff at the gate at LGA were not too friendly."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."

Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."

Cons: "no screens to watch movies. the plane was delayed for a repair and we had to sit on the plane for two hours before we took off. they should of let us off the plane during this time. because of this the flight felt longer. there was no choice of movie because there was only the screen in the isle. the food was horrible for dinner. the smell made me feel sick and the taste was worse. a sandwich might of been better than that disgusting hot food."
Pros: "The crew were amazing! The flight was smooth"
Cons: "I was on row 24 and my seat did not recline and the person in front of me seemed to recline more than anyone else did. Could not Get comfortable"
Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Pros: "Excellent check in and access to plane food and entertainment great"
Cons: "Bed seat too short for a 6 ft 3 in guy made for an uncomfortable night"
Pros: "Entertainment on the newer AA planes is great. Meals are sparse but tasty (chicken wrap)"
Cons: "Middle seat always stinks - flight attendants on AA always seem like they hate their jobs"
Pros: "The only positive thing to be said for the flight was that the seat was not uncomfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work during entire flight; crew (stewards) lied to passengers on the ground that it would work after takeoff, only admitting after we were in the air that they had been told by the technicians it would not work at all. Crew did not respond to call lights when pressed (in First Class), nor did they know how to operate the power system."
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."
Pros: "Crew was great. Courteous and efficient."
Cons: "For a long flight the entertainment options were pathetic. Also the flight was 2 hours late. And there were no chargers at the seats so that also limited the entertainment options. The food was too salty and fatty."
Pros: "Almost everything. Only the food was lacking. I like their new planes. The outlet at the seat in coach. The magazine options at the seat as well. I did not look at the entertainment so I will not rate that. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Just the food options. Ginger snaps was what was served for food and a beverage. I suppose this is what obtains on most airlines these days but can't I hope for something more like maybe a sandwich? AA has the opportunity to set themselves apart in this area."
Pros: "On time, no problems, free food"
Cons: "3 & 3 configuration"
Cons: "No personal TV for entertainment"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Pros: "I'm gluten free & I don't eat pork so I would like a gluten free no pork option!"
Cons: "I was expecting to fly British Airways but instead I was booked on a American Airlines which flew me on an old shitty airplane. Never again."
Pros: "smooth flight, great crew, decent food with beverages, good entertainment selection with nice screens to watch movies"
Cons: "just a tiny bit cramped"
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Cons: "No power outlets in seats Poor viewing options off the 3 monitors Seat back was broken (when sitting up straight, it reclined on its own"
Pros: "I haven't flown AA in a while, I was impressed with the entertainment and food!!! They had a variety of movies. Also, the food was simply but delicious! I had the pasta and it was good!"
Cons: "I feel like they are cramming more seats on a plane. I am 5'2 and I felt I had no leg room!!!! It's an international flight, they should be some roominess!!! I rather chose an Asian airline than a USA airline. I can't believe the space!"
Cons: "Strange thing: my wife and I were in business class. The stewardess going down my isle said all dinner choices were already used up and I only had a choice of pasta or chicken. Later the stewardess went down the isle for my wife and she had all choices available! Weird. And the stewardess said this was as it was supposed to be."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Pros: "1. Let me check in online but NOT my wife ... we are both Advantage Gold & TSA pre .... wasted 2 hours on the phone with idiots in their Manila call center 2. An ancient plane, cramped seating, wretched food. 3. An hour late departing JFK & arriving CDG so right in the middle of Paris rush hour !!"
Pros: "The food was actually really good and not just by airline standards. The entertainment choices were excellent and by the time i finished viewing " the comedisn" and 12 years a slave", the pilot was descending inyo Heathrow.."
Cons: "The aisles are very narrow with the food carts constantly banging into my arm as I was seated in an aisle seat. . One of the 2 nearby bathrooms was out of order, which led to a rather long line awaiting to use same."
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight is that I eventually made it to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times - blamed on Chicago ATC. The food offered was not suitable for First Class - there was chicken and vegetarian option. The FA was rather slow in serving and clearing trays. She was not interested in going around and asking for refills - when I inquired about it at dessert time, she didn't come back for 15 minutes and I had to ring the call button - she informed me they didn't have my drink of choice, so it was OK for her not to come back and tell me that. Service was terrible in First Class. American should seriously do something about that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and had good foot space."
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "More water, drinks. The food was absolutely horrible."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "On my San Francisco to Panama City flight my vegetarian meal was not there. It wasn't a big deal in the end because I slept through most of the flight. I do find it odd though that on all of the other legs of my trip I had my vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Timely flight. Smooth and easy check in."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable in first class. Very happy with that experience for short haul flight. Enjoyed the service. Flight attendant checked on me multiple times and offered beverages."
Cons: "Snack/food choices."
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"
Pros: "Safe flight. Also, I was offered a different flight from Boise, ID, in order to make my connection in San Francisco. Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Legroom, bin space, food"
Pros: "Nice, clean plane. Boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Air traffic delay at FRA for almost an hour sitting in the boarded plane. Terrible food - almost threw up after the flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the food was excellent. I was provided with plenty of snacks and drinks and I felt like I never went without!"
Cons: "I could’ve used more direction once we landed on where to go and what to do."
Cons: "However flight from Athens to Munich sucked. Charged for carry on at check in , even thou others before boarding were checked there’s for free since flight was full. If that was the case I should of gotten mine free. Wish United would drop Lufthansa airlines."
Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."
Pros: "But the amenities were terrible. I couldn’t figure out how to operate the in-seat video feature plus there was no food. Leg room was too cramped also."
Cons: "See above. Amenities were terrible as was leg and seat room."
Pros: "Everything about customer service was great, unfortunately both fights got delayed making it for an extremely long day."
Pros: "Good rate"
Cons: "Didn’t like that I had to check my own bag in and still pay a fee. If your going to charge me then your staff should check my bag. Also I’m not a heavy person i workout so my shoulders are big. Your seats are to small"
Pros: "Not a good wifi connection. Could not access wifi using my united mileage plus account. System wouldn't accept or recognize my account number and I was locked out of my own account. Also wanted to access both my laptop and cellphone email acct but was locked out. Very irritating. Unable to get the work done that I had scheduled."
Pros: "On time, quick boarding, smooth flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "Crew was rude and seemed to be in a constant rush big lack of customer service"
Pros: "Ordered the Protein Box, it was ok.. crew members nice."
Cons: "The Smell on the flight was unacceptable, I was sitting about a couple rows across the middle bathroom, and it smelled horrible, I had never had an experience like this on any other flight, I fly United many times a year, and this had me really uncomfortable for almost 5 hours, since the flight was delayed almost 1.5 hours while we sat onboard the aircraft at the gate, that had me miss dinner plans too in San Francisco as well. I really hope they can fix that, For the good of the passengers, felt like I was going to be nauseous all the time, and I'm really not someone that complains or takes time to review badly."
Cons: "Old plane even though we upgraded to first class it was just bigger seats no entertainment cold draft just horrible felt like we were flying back in the 80s. Lastly our luggage didn't come with our flight it came with the next flight. Horrible horrible experience"
Cons: "There were no tvs on the diet flight you had to use your own device. On the second flight you had to pay to watch tv. It's free to watch movies in American Airlines!"
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 5:30 did not depart until around 7:20!!! Had to sit on plane for almost 2 hrs!! We were NOT OFFERED anything to drink Not even water!! Jet Blue would NEVER be neglectful, they are very service oriented. Plane was full & 2 babies on board one was fussy crying at times. It was s nightmare!! I was exhausted from traveling to NYC & Philly! & the delay & lack of service was AWFUL!! Could not watch TV, bc It either connects to phone, I could not connect it or I think you had to pay! Unheard of!!!I love to watch CNN, MSNBC & Fox it makes the time fly!! Hopefully will Never have to fly United Again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Pros: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "The day we were to return to San Francisco United cancelled our flight making us scramble to get another flight. Thank goodness for Alaska. They got us a return flight and went to Seattle instead of San Fransico. United and San Francisco is a joke. Never again."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "Flight on time and efficient"
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours early and checked our bags in with priority. Somehow, they still managed to get our bags stuck in Houston on a direct flight from Cancun to San Francisco. Makes absolutely no sense."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Pros: "the layover waiting time was relatively fast! Also, the united airlines staff was very helpful in answering any questions I had."
Cons: "I did not like that my first plane coming out of eugen had about an hour delay and I had to rush to my second flight. If it hadn't been for me being guided and me basically running I might have missed my second flight."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "the crew , the services ."
Cons: "They don't respect their seats . And they let seat a strong smoker on my side and his seat was begin me . 3 costumers don't seat on their own seat all mix it aaaggghhhh"
Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The a/c on the plain was not very cold and it needs to blow more air"
Cons: "TINY seats! I'm 5'11 and I had a hard time being comfortable and I find it incredibly unfair to have to now pay more for the exit row??? The person in front kicks back their seat and suddenly the TV screen on the back of the seat is in my lap"
Cons: "An old plane with only public TV. American crew is not too pleasant compared to the English crew on our other flight"
Cons: "Were held up by TSA in San Francisco because we were not given receipt for our dog who traveled with us. (We had a 2 hour layover in SF and took dog outside the security area for relief). Then the ticket counter in SF was understaffed and it took a long time to get the receipt printed (Once at the counter the agent was very helpful, efficient and quick). Should have a pet area inside the security of airports, like Palm Springs does."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class on our connecting flight and my husband and i sat together. That made up for the first flight, because our seating separated us three, which I didn't like."
Cons: "Delayed flight to Denver and our seats were not together."
Cons: "Had to sprint through the airport to make a connection because the flight was delayed and then went to a gate in the international terminal which was far across the airport from my connection."
Pros: "PROS: easy boarding, flights on-time or early, helpful staff, let us pre-board to wipe seats for our nut-allergic child, ERW airport less hectic than JFK and similar driving times to Manhattan."
Cons: "CONS: one of our screens didn't work, wish planes were nut-free and served more allergy friendly snacks,"
Pros: "We ended up getting a free bag check because the flight was full."
Cons: "One free bag check not included. Both legs of our flight were delayed. Even though I had brought an iPad, I couldn't figure out the entertainment system and couldn't download the entertainment app from the Apple app store (I couldn't get the store to open on the onboard wireless system to download the app)."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Cons: "Old plane - no build in screen/entertainment system! Only access would have been thru WiFi, but servers were down pretty much all the time. Most movies would have required a specific app, which was also not accessible."
Pros: "Flight was nice, clean and crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was pathetic, entertainment system was old, no independent entertainment system on board, aircraft looked outdated."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Four hour delay to leave SF"
Pros: "Pilot was wonderful and did a fabulous job landing in the windy conditions."
Cons: "The flight attendant was dismissive and rude. The united terminal at DFW was terrible. Dirty, old and just plain disgusting. Craft was a bit run down and dirty as well"
