Cons: "I booked this flight from Kayak with check in luggage, then when I was in the airport I paid 60 dollars for mu check in luggages... why?"

Pros: "Staff was kind"
Cons: "Flight Delay"

Cons: "Turbulence, delayed takeoff due to weather, had to circle back on landing because other planes hadn’t cleared runway"

Pros: "It"

Cons: "U can’t complain with price. I like it."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Second time in a row flight status (delayed) was not updated until slightly before boarding was scheduled to begin."

Cons: "Blankets"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."

Pros: "I did not like anything. The worst experience. I checked in through your site and got 11F seat which was changed when I took boarding card at airport to 32F. Later I came to know that they sold my seat even after my check in. So pathetic behavior. Never recommend this airline. They should learn from some of the Asian airlines."

Pros: "great landing"

Pros: "The only positives were that the flight was on time and crew members were reliable."
Cons: "The seat was very dirty. I even felt the need to wipe it before I sat down, and the tissue I used became black. Otherwise, I felt like the plane was tight and uncomfortable for a 5.5 hour flight. At the end, one crew member was complaining about how slow we were to disembark to the people on the plane."

Pros: "Alaska airlines is a very good airline!"
Cons: "Need better food items"

Cons: "Crew was very unpleasant."

Pros: "That we took off on time and landed early"
Cons: "Seating was cramped"

Pros: "Lots of room, both legroom and overhead luggage room."

Pros: "This survey is great because it lets customers have a say in the airline industry’s practices and operations and the above question should have an N/A option because I neither consumed food nor used entertainment so I didn’t experience those two features on my flight and it would be misleading for me to give either item a rating of more or less than three"
Cons: "I buzzed the flight attendant and asked her to bring me water and I detected surprise and perhaps mild annoyance at my request and to make matters worse she brought back a half-full water cup as opposed to a full one"

Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "Mileage points wouldn’t give me my free bags happened multiple times"

Pros: "...but I upgraded to premium and it’s got more offerings than other airlines, like alcoholic drinks, but..."
Cons: "1. Flight delays. My fam flew a week ago with a 2 hour delay so this may be par for the course. 2. WiFi was out. If you’re gonna try to differentiate yourself then make sure that differentiating factor works flawlessly. 3. Seat wouldn’t recline. In Premium seating, which people choose for better comfort, make sure they can get it."

Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."

Cons: "No comfort given to passengers despite 2.5 hr delay in leaving and another 1 hr on the ground after landing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "A little confused they gave us a virgin America plane but having a movie selection at our disposal and drinks it was excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was 30 min behind, then after boarding it took a while to take off and then when landing it took a while to de plane. Probably not Alaska’s fault"

Pros: "Awesome !"

Cons: "Keep it up"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Cons: "Felt much longer than it needed to be - 7 hours?"

Pros: "I like the fact you can keep chats on board for free"
Cons: "Alaska Airlines as usual as American companies won’t provide with snacks for free just water. Flight attendants passed by and didn’t get my order or seems to notice my interest in the menu"

Pros: "Everyone was lovely and to be honest it was the best plane experience I’ve ever had. I’ll take a polite and friendly crew over silly marketing gimmicks any day, which is what it feels like you give your travelers."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."

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

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

Pros: "Loved the fact that there was an empty seat beside me."
Cons: "Could not get to see the movie. Need better instruction on how to link up to the system."

Pros: "Flight was good but my first flight was cancelled which gave me a 6 hour layover in Seattle."
Cons: "6 hr delay and arrive at Newark at 7:30 am and have to fight traffic to get home"

Pros: "I like everything from this company"

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Pros: "Very Happy with Hot food"

Cons: "Limited choice of movies and my movie discontinued part way through and I did not have time to replay."

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

Pros: "This turned into the perfect flight, exit row seat with an empty middle seat and the flight from New Jersey to San Jose came in an hour early."

Cons: "Didn't get to thank the whole crew!"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "Good pilot, helpful announcements"
Cons: "Sat in front of emergency row so couldn't recline"

Cons: "The fact that the shampoo from one bathroom was not available so had to wait to use the other one to just wash your hands or entirely"

Pros: "I enjoyed a special offer of upgrade to the first class."

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

Pros: "Online wifi"
Cons: "They ran out of hot meals for purchase one row ahead of me"

Pros: "The flight from EWR to MSP was extremely quiet. No loud engine noises."
Cons: "We were vert disappointed at the Newark Airport - the Delta Club was closed and there had been no notification prior to arriving at the airport. I certainly missed that early morning coffee."

Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."

Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."

Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Pros: "Awesome"

Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"

Pros: "Crew very efficient. Greeted us with a smile. Movies sere good but hard to hear."
Cons: "Tried to get comfort seats but sold out way ahead. Long trip for not much leg room."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."

Pros: "Yeah...spacious leg rooms."
Cons: "Too bumpy landing at Jackson."

Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."

Pros: "Amazing crew & comfortable seats."

Pros: "Crew was excellent, pilots informative, and a very smooth and on time departure and arrival!"

Cons: "To many screaming kids"

Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"

Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Late departure. Almost missed connection. Even though we planned a decent amount of time between flights. Always something causing delays when we leave from Newark."

Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "no vegetarian food in flight, the layover for connecting flight was not sufficient,"

Pros: "I earned miles for it."
Cons: "It was an old 767 that either needs to be gutted and redone, or sold to FedEx for cargo. The entertainment systems were relics from 2002, and barely worked. USB port, nope. Then they ran out of food and booze (wine mostly), so they made the nonrev employees go without, which was awkward gif the rest. But the kicker was that they lost my luggage. I told them that it hadn’t been boarded ten minutes prior to pushback. The Venice folks were very excited to be able to show me exactly where they list it (because of the RFID bag tags)... doesn’t do me much good... 10 miles away or 10,000 miles away, I still don’t have my “stuff”"

Cons: "Boarding issues cause delay after plane had to be replaced People were double booked Then land awaited on tarmac because of no ground crew Caused me to miss my next flight"

Pros: "Air crew was excellent"

Cons: "Our flight was changed/delayed because of smoke detector problems!! We lost a whole day on the trip and we are very upset"

Cons: "Couldn't recline in my emergency exit row"

Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Pros: "Flight team were wonderful!"

Cons: "the short connection screwed me"

Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."

Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Worst"

Pros: "I liked the plane being on time & a smooth flight. The crew was great too."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I flew with Delta"
Cons: "Your information was Aeroméxico"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Late taking off. had to hurry to catch final leg"

Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."

Cons: "Super small plane"

Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."

Pros: "There were pretzels. Wifi but I brought my own entertainment."

Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"

Pros: "After 4 delayed and missed flights they did put me in a motel"
Cons: "Trying to make arrangements and being on hold for 30 to 53 minutes several times all while trying to second guess flights. Not being allowed on a flight after being bumped several times because only 1st class seats were available . Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."

Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"

Pros: "On time. Nice crew. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "More entertainment variety."

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Everything was as to be expected"

Cons: "Well, you could have felt that when there is an unprecedented pandemic illness and federal guidance against travel that you don't doubly penalize customers who (1) cannot travel due to the extraordinary public health crisis of COVID 19 and, (2) are devastated that he cannot celebrate his best friend's 40th birthday despite being the thing he looked forward to for months and would love to use a travel voucher in the future when this whole thing eventually blows over. Imagine what your company could gain by being good."

Cons: "Timely communication"

Pros: "My special needs son wasn’t seated with us, crew was very kind and accommodating. And even though we managed to shuffle the rest of the family ourselves, they came back to check to make sure he wasn’t by himself."

Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed at take off and at deplaning and we were never told why or even that we were delayed. We just sat there"

Pros: "New plane, very comfortable. Crew handled weather delay well."
Cons: "EWR Terminal B3 has the worst TSA capacity I’ve seen in a long time - understaffed, no TSA PreCheck (& no option to go through a different security check point), resulting in very slow lines from inadequately shepherded inexperienced international travelers. I won’t take Sun Country again thru’ EWR"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No free snack. $40 for a carry on!"

Pros: "Boarding the plane went quickly, so was getting off. Also temperature inside was ideal for how hot and humid it was outside- I know some passengers complained about it being cold but I actually preferred it considering how cramped it was."
Cons: "More leg room! I’m thankful I’m short, but I feel like if I were any taller i would’ve had a hard time being comfortable the whole flight."

Pros: "It landed early."
Cons: "Some complimentary snacks. No extra fee for online check-in. It’s cheaper to you to allow people to check themselves in online than make people check in at the desk that was woefully understaffed. Made it a terrible experience for all"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for five hours with no communication from sun country reps"

Cons: "Terrible delays. Charged me $400 for canceling the flight although it’s their mistake for delays. Then i booked Sun Country flight and didn’t make it. They harmed me $200 and gave me vouchers. Spent $1600 in one day to make it to my destination. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Terrible online check in process 10 hour delay!"

Pros: "It was utilitarian and got me from point a to be at a very good price."
Cons: "Smaller seats, no entertainment to speak of. No complimentary snacks."

Cons: "Delay. Second time I’ve had this."

Pros: "Staff."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Late departure by 1 hour. Then had to wait 55 minutes at the luggage pick up in SFO"

Pros: "I liked the crew and the fact that I could reserve a seat. I also like that they use terminal A in the DEN airport and terminal 2 at MSP."
Cons: "The legroom was none existent, my seat was hard as rock, and it did not recline. Also, aisle seats have smaller under seat space than the other seats."

Cons: "I felt like I was being robbed with paying $40 for carryon fees..... Jeeez!!!!"

Pros: "Not a full flight so i could stretch out in my own row."
Cons: "Group of loud obnoxious drunks in the back getting fed more drinks by flight attendants."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Hot as hell .... heat on to night th whole flight"

Pros: "On time departure, about 10 minutes early landing. Leg room OK."
Cons: "Way too many charges and too expensive. Not a bargain when carry on bag and assigned seat add $90to the fare. Kind of ridiculous."

Pros: "Employees were fairly nice. The ride wasn’t too bumpy."
Cons: "Nothing in particular. The airlines have reduced service to such a barebones minimum that it’s difficult to feel anything about the process."

Pros: "Everything we Experienced was awful. Upgrated Seats, baggage check sucked!!"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was a little crabby. Not tome but to a neighbor passenger"

Pros: "Great service, made good timing, no issues"
Cons: "No tablets in back of seat, had to request for use"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "no snacks"

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "50 minutes late"

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and friendly, very professional. Would fly Sun Country again."

Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Older planes but everything worked fine and we had excellent leg room. Great value"
Cons: "No real complaints. I think it's an excellent value."

Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours.....uncomfortable seating. Powerful cold draft from outside after take off"

Pros: "The flight was seamless from start to finish. The flight attendants were professional, quick and personal. I highly recommend Suncountry for flights from Seattle to Minneapolis."
Cons: "trash pick up sonner and often"

Pros: "Employees were courteous."
Cons: "Difficult to book seats because computer was malfunctioning; flight was one hour late, so we arrived at about midnight. Baggage was late coming off plane."

Cons: "small seats and when we go into the air there were plenty of seats to spread out. The crew should have announced that it would okay to disberse."

Pros: "Fast and courteous service definitely makes a difference when traveling. I had no issues on my trip, looking forward to next trip."

Cons: "Seats to darn hard."

Pros: "Genuine and kind flight attendants. Very personable and made the experience delightful!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Being able to board first because I am retired military and had no carry on baggage."

Pros: "I liked the boarding process"
Cons: "Would be nice if they had wifi."

Pros: "The Security at both Logan and Minn. where first class. Suncountry had its own section which allowed for a quick and efficient security process. The food options, though paid for, are reasonable in price and much greater in variety. I do wish they had some free snack options."
Cons: "No entertainment, well they had hand held devices you could rent but that was not ideal. The room in the seats was the worst in the industry. I am 6' tall and I could barely fit my legs under the seat in front of me with a small bag there. For the price it is well worth it and I would do it again for a short flight but nothing of length."

Pros: "Punctuality, flight was on time."

Pros: "Can't really complain re: a direct flight for less than other airlines charge for a flight with layovers. Large, comfortable plane with good food. $25 for an exit row seat was worthwhile as I had 4 rows(!) to myself. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment. When I chose my seat online, I was made to believe it was basically a full flight (only ~3 seats were available and they were all middle seats) so I spent $25 on an exit row seat. Once we boarded, it became apparent that there were a TON of open seats and I would have been able to get an aisle. Kind of sketchy for them to misrepresent the seating like that."

Pros: "The flight was right on time and the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendants could try a bit more to serve the passengers"

Pros: "Most aspects of the experience were without flaw for mishap. The entire flight was comfortable. Boarding was easy and we were not nickled and dimed throughout the trip. The luggage accommodations were reasonable and transparent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour. Baggage service at JFK was not good."

Pros: "Very Friendly Crew both on the ground and in the air."

Pros: "Last minute trip to MN and back to Bay Area. Went for a funeral. Flew Sun country for the first time both ways. Best experience I've/we've had flying in a while. Thank you. We'll be back - especially if y'all go to the east coast."

Pros: "For only $15 more I upgraded to a seat with more space and was very comfortable. With the baggage fee only $20 (not $25 like other airlines), I was very happy with the affordable upgrade."

Pros: "I enjoyed their boarding process, since I check my bag and only have a small personal sack, no real carry-on. After boarding first class, and people who have small children or need more assistance, and their elite loyalty members, people who checked a bag or have no carry-on get to board next."
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for any snack. They don't give out any complimentary snacks. However, their foods do include hot items like a cheeseburger, though my flights didn't include meal-time travel, so I didn't try the hot foods."

Pros: "Liked that it was non stop and crew was very nice &friendly"
Cons: "Was cramped"

Pros: "Quiet, not bothered by crew. Arrived very close to on time"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't stay reclined"

Pros: "the crew was amazing. Seats needs to be more comfortable."
Cons: "seat needs to be more comfortable."

Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi would not connect for two of my flights. I wanted to watch movies"

Pros: "I was very appreciative that the cabin crew went through the cabin prior to take off to check that everyone was wearing a mask properly (covering mouth AND nose). I flew United a few weeks ago and had to politely ask the person next to me both on return and departing flight to make sure the mask covered thier nose. A lot of people in the cabin weren't wearing masks properly and the crew didn't seem to care."

Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly American again"
Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."

Cons: "there was no social distancing"

Pros: "Yes the crow was good"
Cons: "The wifi should be free to use without paying for it"

Pros: "One member of the crew who focused on the back of the plane was pleasant and kind during a one hour delay on the tarmac."
Cons: "One member of the crew who focused on first class passengers complained about having to pick up trash, having to stay in Birmingham, and was just unpleasant. The AA system was down in Charlotte which effected everything. The attendant at the gate was very, very short with several passengers. There was not enough AA ground crew at our destination to allow us to embark. They couldn’t move the jetway and unload bags at the same time so we just had to sit there for 30 minutes. At 12:30am."

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"

Pros: "Nothing. It’s a terrible airline. Seriously, don’t book with them unless you’re desperate or you want to have an anxiety attack."
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."

Pros: "I pay $30 more for my bags"
Cons: "I pay $30 more for my bags,"

Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"

Pros: "Great first class cabin crew."

Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."

Cons: "I was annoyed when I was told I would have to check my carry on because there was no more room in the overhead compartments. Then as I was walking down the aisle to get to my seat I saw a lot of room in the overheads."

Pros: "More space in these seats than in other flights I’ve taken"

Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."

Cons: "Service was excellent"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Flight left on time. Pilot had a sense of humor."
Cons: "Entertainment seemed canned"

Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."

Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"

Pros: "Fast and easy service"

Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."

Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."

Pros: "Rude staff at the check in counter both flights. Very disappointed in American"
Cons: "Rude agent at first check in and again at second check in"

Pros: "Nothing aside from that the flight wasn’t crowded so I didn’t have someone next to me which was a plus."
Cons: "Funky smell in plane something like artificial strawberry, farts and mildew. Crappy plane overall. Old and no power at seats. Horrible in flight entertainment for a long haul with no individual screens. American used to be so good and now it’s aweful."

Pros: "Smooth flying and lots of respects to the pilots for their dedicated work. The entertainment really works very well."
Cons: "Poor Service. The service of drinks is done very poorly. Really concerned with the attitude. Never need those complimentary drinks."

Pros: "Got me to where I'm going safely. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flying is painful"

Pros: "Not much"

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

Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."

Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."

Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."

Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."

Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"

Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."

Cons: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "Stewardesses tried to make up for disastrous management mistakes. One customer service rep was helpful when Kiosk refused to give me boarding pass or seat assignment or pay for baggage check--ALL USING MY AMERICAN AIRLINES ADVANTAGE MASTERCARD!"
Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."

Pros: "I liked the seating on the first part of the flight and the snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The exit row seats were very confining g..way to narrow due to type of seat used..had the tray in the arm"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"

Pros: "i was delayed first for 2 and a half hours in newark which changed to 4 hours and were told because of refueling. which made me miss my connecting flight in phoenix. then the new flight i was put on in phoenix i was rushed onto the plane only to sit and wait on it for another 2 hour before taking off. terrible experience"

Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "1 hour on the runway for a 1 hour flight"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nono"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "How easy everything was"
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "diverted due to weather but send to Stephenville!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"

Cons: "No screaming babies but that’s out of their hands ;)"

Pros: "Great job."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Keep on doing what u r doing"

Cons: "The pilot to be on time"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "Super"

Cons: "Short trip , WiFi was out but not an issue. Again I was so pleased not to have to climb narrow stairs to board. It was excellent and glad to be home. Maybe some peanuts."

Cons: "Again, left stranded in SC."

Pros: "We had a wheel chair person and they made it very easy to drop off at the gate and get it at the destination gate. Also they drove us over to the baggage area due to many elevation changes required to reach this area."
Cons: "The obtaining of the boarding pass in Newark needed more people to help get the boarding pass. I like the option to use a machine if I want to generate a boarding pass but there were issues with the machines and not enough people to help alleviate the backup of people having to wait."

Pros: "Legroom in the exit seat was sufficient"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty and our power outlets did not work"

Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."

Pros: "Space is tight but not expensive so it’s to be expected."
Cons: "Cheaper Wifi! I couldn’t even message without paying full price for wifi"

Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."

Cons: "No drink service And no free tv"

Pros: "Smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working."

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Pros: "Staff was on point!!! Awesome"

Pros: "The plane window seat"

Pros: "Nonstop"

Cons: "The sit isn't recliner"

Cons: "The seat table was badly stained andlooked like it hadn't been wiped in ages. The sack in front had garbage from previous passengers. It was also freezing cold. Food inedible"

Cons: "That United had NO remorse for our inconvenience and offered NO compensations."

Pros: "Movie selection!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "Never happened"

Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"

Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"

Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."

Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."

Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"

Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"

Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."

Cons: "Free wifi access"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."

Pros: "No issues. Quick and painless."

Pros: "On time Smooth ride Actually slept"

Pros: "Tight seating funky food"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
