Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was one of the best flights I’ve had. Service was really good and enjoyed the complimentary cocktails"
Cons: "We would have loved more of a meal during the flight."
Pros: "Although we were a little behind schedule to leave Seattle, the flight crew thoroughly explained the delay to us and got us on the way as soon as they could."
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it. Everyone I dealt with, apart from the gentleman that changed my flight to the next one, was rude. I will likely try to avoid Alaska Airlines in the future for fear of having to deal with them in the airport."
Pros: "I like the options they provide for food and love the charging stations on the seats."
Cons: "I found the aisle seats to be more uncomfortable than the inner seats. There was less room under the seat for baggage and feet and I got my elbow banged pretty bad by a cart (I had fallen asleep). I also think it is lame to be charged for basically everything but a drink and a cracker on a 5+ hour flight. We get nickle and dimed for everything. $10 for each food item, $10 for a movie screen (what happened to the good old days with free in flight movies?). We have to pay to check luggage ($25 bucks). We normally avoid flying if humanly possible because it is in general too much stress and too expensive but we prefer Southwest airlines if they will go to our destination. Bags are included with their tickets!"
Pros: "The flight was OK except that they ran out of food to sell and apparently you could order ahead of time but at least for us in the back of the plane was nothing left."
Pros: "What did I like about my flight?...Not much! Was not allowed to pick seat assignment during reservations.Called two days before returning for seat assignment...Told must do at airport day of. Arrived at airport 6 hours early day of and was assigned 31F (only32rows) tried to change as I really wanted near front, isle seat... was turned down but guy and wife in line behind me changed thier's from back to row 6.... I endured 31F surrounded by sick coughing, sniffing, snotty nosed, sneezing people and crying children for next 6 hours...I've been back almost a week and just now feeling well enough to venture out...I will never travel Alaska airlines if they won't give me an acceptable seat assignment... Hawaiian Airlines trip there was wonderful!"
Pros: "Overall good trip"
Cons: "The flight was wonderful but there was a little girl traveling by herself that was slightly misbehaving throughout the flight. Everyone around thought that was sibling or daughter of a passenger nearby until the last duration of the flight. She was very cute and it wasn't a big deal, but if there was a way for people around her to know I'm sure we would have helped her out a lot earlier in the flight with all her stuff."
Pros: "I liked the power outlet and free sodas"
Cons: "that there were no blankets available"
Pros: "All real good price"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food. you can have better service for the same price in another airline"

Cons: "Rattle and vibration noise on lift off in plane. Don't know where it came from but as much as I fly, I've never heard it before."
Pros: "I was allowed to change my seat online before flight to a preferred location."
Cons: "Players handed out on plane- I think they ran out before they got to me, or not offered- was unaware of price, etc... Unclear that snack tray contained other than snacks, may have purchased food if aware of offerings- maybe should have read AK air mag in seat pocket?"
Pros: "I had to change planes twice and the second time barely made it before they closed the door. But it was all good, made it to my destination."
Pros: "I was able to sneak onto this flight thanks to the crew. I was booked for a later flight that day and got to the airport early enough to jump on a much earlier one. Those snack packs you sell are just amazing. I wish I had one right now!"
Cons: "I was stuck next to someone who stank already without having a bad problem with passing gas later in the flight, but that's not the airline's fault. Still, made the ride a bit rough for me. After a while I became less discreet about covering my nose."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Old plane - small and cramped."
Pros: "Pilot was fantastic and explained everything clearly."
Cons: "Chairs were small not enough elbow room"
Pros: "Friendly, charging outlets at every seat"

Pros: "I slept most the time and occasionally woke up to eat (you gonna pay FYI) and drinks (complimentary) not liquor Overall it was a pleasant flight...I ate...I went to sleep no issues but I was late to my plans in San Diego due to the delays..."
Cons: "Delayed on boarding and than delayed on landing...if you have an Apple iPad or phone you would've to download an app on the ground so before take off in order to watch movies while flying so basically I wasn't able to view any of the entertainment inflight because I didn't have the gogo app on my phone/ipad and my flight was at least 5 to 6 hr HI to San Diego...plus internet was unavailable throughout entire flight...woke up and first thing I saw was a flight attendant picking of her food from her teeth using her fingers not just for a few seconds but minutes and it didn't even phase her loll smh"
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants and the customer service that was provided to me before I boarded the flight. They did an excellent job."
Cons: "I did not like having to ride the middle seat. Hopefully next time I travel alone I'm lucky enough to get the window or aisle seat."
Cons: "It's too packed in the main cabin lose a vertical row so there is more space. It's just overwhelming"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "I found nothing to disparage on this flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very accommodating and friendly, not only to me but, to some passengers that needed a little extra assistance. In the Coach section there was plenty of legroom."

Cons: "1 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Changed gate, very late."
Pros: "Quiet plane. Crew was genuine, and interested. Trip was on time. These simple services, done with a smile exceeded my expectations, which is sad but deeply appreciated."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Got the captions to take a picture with flat Stanley for my little cousin."
Pros: "Phone chargers! Best idea ever"
Cons: "When the flight attendants came thru with dinner offers I was not offered a dinner. When they came thru with drinks I said yes but I also wanted a dinner but wss not offered one. The attendant was very hostile and said well there are a lot of you and only a few of us. We're gonna miss some people. What do you want I can get it. But it wasn't a friendly offer, it sounded more resentful. This was an almost 6 hour flight. Later when they went thru again to offer snacks they made a big production to ask me loudly if I wanted one. Even opening her eyes very widely and saying are you sure? I could tell it was because I had complained earlier. But I didn't even really complain. I just said I didn't get offered a meal, on an almost 6 hour flight, and I wanted one."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the row where I was placed at didn't have reclinable chairs."
Pros: "I like how the flights don't get over booked."
Cons: "I got and am still very sick from a whole family that was sitting to the side of me. They were coughing and choking and looked miserable I feel sorry for the people that were sitting in front of them that were getting coughed on I feel when someone showing that much sickness the flight attendants should I have them wear masks because now me and who knows how many other people got sick because of them or at least offer the healthy people the masks Nothing bad on the airline part but for the sake of their passengers that would have been nice ."
Pros: "Comfortable seats for sleeping/built in headrests. Free entertainment. American codeshare plane."
Pros: "The fact that I was able to sleep part of the flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, appreciated the text updates letting me know the flight was delayed, crew was friendly and awesome."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a pillow and blanket on such a long flight, but no complaints. Will make sure I take one next time."
Pros: "I noticed some flight crews did real good jobs as much as they can within limited resource to help sick woman passenger during the flight."
Cons: "I understand that all things that happened during the flight is NOT crews fault or they had control of the situations. Here are some I have experienced: 1. Plane took off almost two hour later/delay due mechanical, paper works and refueling problems according to the captain. 2. During the over 5 hours flight, passengers had to suffer almost 3 hours of hard air turbulence. 3. A passenger with medical problem during the flight had to treated by another passenger (doctor) and our plane landed in emergency. The flight was one of the worst I have had so far. I will rethink before choose Alaska next time."
Pros: "The Alaska flight was on time and arrived in Bellingham on time. They was no delays or hitches. The flight was very full and one of the bathroom did not work. Some of the attendants was not very professional."
Pros: "Felt a bit dupped. Alaska is amazing. This flight was run by American. I hate flying American. Rude personnel. Older seats. Ugly terminals. Gaps for our feet were not set below the chairs evenly. I had the middle seat but my floor space went into what should have been the aisle seat's space. I felt bad for the guy. Chair support landed right were his foot would have naturally slide forward."
Pros: "Plane arrived on time"
Cons: "Disorganized baggage claim. Someone pulled my bags off to the side and here I was looking at the carousel. Not very organized."
Pros: "Quick flight. Other then takeoff smooth flight."
Cons: "Picked seats in 20's but got seat on back and accross from rest rooms. Flight attendants were right behind me and their family's were on the flight and they were loud the hole time talking and laughing in the back or the plane. Also in and out of overhead bumping into me over and over. Also had people bump into me so they could walk by. Totally disrespectful and rude to a lot of the people on board. Also had family in back of plane talking to them and takeing up room and being loud in the rest room in back of plane."
Pros: "Check-in at the Honolulu Airport was good and ground crew were very helpful. It was a red-eye flight, so did not eat or use any onboard entertainment. Overall a very good experience with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Awesome support when I missed my flight, courteous professional and hassle free rescheduled for the next day!"
Cons: "WI did not like the crew of American Airlines from Hawaii to la. Not very friendly or even smilingly?.... Long way toward fly without much to really watch Not even peanuts or a snack without having to pay"
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was very organized. Chairs had many customizable features."
Cons: "You have to pay for WiFi and we didn't get beverages until almost the end of our two and a half hour flight."
Pros: "More informed ticket agents .or more current seating plan for the particular aircraft. The seating chart I viewed on the kiosk did not match the actual aircraft .."
Cons: "None, everything was awsom"
Pros: "Smooth ride and got in a little early that’s always a plus!"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great! Keep up the good work!!"

Cons: "Food options were very limited; no vegetarian/vegan options."
Pros: "I will fly Hawaiian again."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Wide, comfortable seats (in regular economy)."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good service"
Cons: "No entertainment options on flight except overpriced ipad rental."
Cons: "Didn’t get the seat I booked"
Cons: "We finally arrived back in Phoenix. Again we have no bags."

Cons: "Electrical problems kept us from the entertainment and lighting for reading."
Pros: "The Crew was very accomidating and friendly."
Cons: "5.5 hour flight with no entertainment provided. $16 to $18 if you rented an Ipad for 4 hours. There was no option for lunch which was a slimy, tasteless chicken sandwich. No special diet options. 1 bag of chips with the sandwich and late in the flight a 1/2 oz.( yes .5 oz.) bag of snack mix. A 4 oz. glass of water, juice or soft drinks were offered about every hour."
Pros: "Good food and beverage service for coach. 767 plane has more isle seats so more comfortable for longer flight. Flight crew excellent."
Cons: "HA has older 767s that have few entertainment options for the long flights, bring your own. Honolulu airport is immense and the distance from the gate to the baggage is very long and there is only one small stretch of moving walkway and no assistance carts. If you have trouble walking a mile, get a wheelchair. Same thing at Phoenix terminal 3. Long walk from gate to baggage without any assistance whatsoever."
Pros: "One stewardess was fantastic. I changed seats twice so a parent could sit with a child. Prices for extras was too high for us poor folk."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good and was not enough for a meal. Somehow this could be more substantial and a little bit of a choice."
Pros: "Staff super friendly & nice."

Cons: "Windshield wiper broken delayed the plane"
Pros: "There is complimentary food and wine, which is a big step up from other airlines."
Cons: "I purchased this flight through kayak via Expedia, and I selected seats on the Expedia website for all my flight legs. For some reason, my seat selections did not communicate with Hawaiian Airlines. As a result, during boarding, I was assigned a random seat. The flight from HNL-PHX was completely full, and I got stuck with a seat which had no windows in the row right in front of the galley and bathrooms. I suggest that Expedia communicate better with HA on seat assignments."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, service was ok"
Cons: "Ants were crawling all over seat & flight tray. My seat pocketbhad leftover food smushed into it. We informed thr stewardess & tge people in front of us had the same issue with ants"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Cabin temperature to cold."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The airline still serves a free meal"
Cons: "The airport in Honolulu is too small for the number of tourists going through!! We were TSA precheck and it still took 45 minutes to get through. We went online to choose our seats for our trip home and the site said see agent on arrival to airport so we got to the airport and no agents just the kiosk which assigned our seating ."
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Pros: "Hawaiian as usual had wonderful crew, on time and efficient. Still love the free meal with a glass of wine in coach!"
Cons: "The plane was ancient, cramped and in poor repair. There was no extra comfort section and zero chance of an upgrade to the tiny 1st class cabin."
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Pros: "The fact the a meal is provided in coach, is certainly a bonus for the airline. The flight crew is friendly and moves quickly."
Cons: "For a flight that is gaurenteed to be 6 hrs or more, I think Hawaiian should consider some options of entertainment beyond a limited number of iPads at a charge. I'm okay paying for something like wifi or an iPad, but maybe some heads up when buying a ticket. My Japan Air flight from HI to Japan had great wifi, so don't tell me that over ocean flights don't work. I think they ought to treat the flight as an international flight when it comes to beverage and snacks..."
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 4 hours prior to departing for Phoenix. This was absolutely ridiculous! No communication or updates as to the situation."
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "The staff was efficient and personable."
Pros: "Just a very nice flight, great service, very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Left you alone if you wanted to sleep. Flight was uneventful and that's good."
Cons: "No wifi in the airport or on the plane?! So on a 6+ hour flight no entertainment unless you rent a $15 dollar tablet."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."
Pros: "The beverage service was excellent. Departure and Arrival were on time."
Cons: "Dinner is typical airline food, nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The food was not a good value and the free meal was poor."
Pros: "Food and snacks on all flights."
Cons: "No Movies unless you paid for the IPad."
Cons: "The food was very rubbery. It was some kind of chicken something. Although the cookie was fabulous."

Cons: "Leg room. Also, I was unable to select seats when making the reservation."
Pros: "Complimentary meal in coach!"
Cons: "Long wait during boatding"
Pros: "More leg room."
Pros: "Smooth flight, with premium video somehow! No delays. Good array of movies, new and old."
Cons: "1 food 'option' of "sweet and sour bits of stuff with rice." Felt like public school cafeteria at best. Also not enough of it for a 6 hour flight (and I'm a skinny guy). Knee room in economy is killer for us tall guys (6'3). Swear it gets smaller every year."
Cons: "Pay for ipad"
Pros: "Wonderful hospitality, excellent service!! Clean, well thought meal service."
Cons: "Hoping that this will continue!!"
Pros: "It was a safe journey good rest and a very smooth operation"
Cons: "More vegan options"
Pros: "Service was ok not a big deal. Could've had a accommodate us for the 2 hour delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay...and once in seat it was too hot with traffic of planes in front of us."
Cons: "Was not offered a drink in first class prior to take off."
Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"
Cons: "Terminal 2 security at LAX is awful and inefficient Also plane had a malfunctioning switch and it took them 1.5 hrs to fix while we are on the plane. This was 1.5 hrs delay on a 58 minutes flight. :("
Pros: "Crew, chairs, entertainment"
Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."
Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"
Pros: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."
Pros: "Clean & modern aircraft Comfortable seat Proactive customer service"
Cons: "Delayed departure (due to Air Traffic Control) Finding my bag damaged on arrival More refreshments would have been nice"
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Pros: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."
Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Got a window seat, my luggage arrived with me"
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."
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: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."
Pros: "Great staff, quick service."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Pros: "Row to myself"
Pros: "1st class service was excellent."
Cons: "The food in 1st class does not compare to some competitor airlines. the leather seats do not breath and can sometimes get hot."
Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "Aisle seat; leaving on time"
Cons: "Sat next to family with 3 small children; kids and parents did very well. Wished Delta could have arrange for family to have 3 seats together. Would have been family friendly."
Pros: "The plane ROCKED"
Cons: "The crew on this flight were very "eh", no smiles or anything, just handing coffee and snacks out to burdensome passengers"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly during the very short flight."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable - not a lot of padding."
Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Cons: "Ct for. R"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Pros: "The flight between WA D.C. And Phoenix went well. Very nice staff, orderly onboarding"
Cons: "Arrived in Phoenix and hurried to my next gate for the flight to Palm Springs only to discover a delay in the flight. No marguees were updated, no explanation just the plane had not arrived. Soon after we were told of a gate change, the marquee then said the flight would not arrive until 11 pm it is a one hour flight, so we actually arrived at 10 pm."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Cons: "Got to the airline to a 50+ people line where people were checking in flights and baggage. My boarding pass didn't print so I was put in a main customer service line where I was 5th from the front. It took the two agents 35 minutes to get to me...which seems way to long. Employees seem irritable and unfriendly, non helpful attitude. Plane does not have entertainment unless you purchase tablet on a 6 hour flight. No meal service.. Each time I fly American it feels like an inconvience."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed and we would have missed our connecting flight to BOS. The next flight out was the following day. We took it upon ourselves to get re-booked on United Airlines. The American travel agent was pleasant but we would have been out of luck if we weren't proactive and frequent travelers trying every flight option available. Finally, after over an hour on the phone we resolved the issue through another carrier."
Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."
Pros: "Good looking flight attendants and coffee"
Cons: "When I was boarding they made me put my carry on baggage in with the luggage."
Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Pros: "Well the captain got us there in 4 hours instead of 4 hours and 40 minutes."
Cons: "Level of comfort was terrible"
Cons: "Our plane ended up being delayed in Hermosillo for 2+ hours which caused us to miss our connections in Phoenix. The Mexican military gave American a very precise window in which they needed to take off from Hermosillo by, because of planned military maneuvers. The plan arrived on time but we missed our take-off window by 8 minutes. The ground crew and flt. crew showed no sense of urgency in getting the plane prepared to take off, the boarding of the plan etc. We could have easily taken off within the allotted window, except there was no sense of urgency or advance notice to any of the passengers. American in Phoenix made no attempt to accommodate us and we ended up having to buy tickets on Southwest in order to get home. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"
Pros: "Lufthansa crew and service made the long trip not just bearable,but enjoyable!"
Cons: "The seats are super squeezed together. My daughter and I weigh no more than 130 lbs each and We were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I like the price"
Cons: "The seats isn’t made for a big person which is my main complain for ALL Airlines. The charger for my phone wasn’t a USB charger"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Cons: "Need to pay for everything... internet, tv, and snack. Long flight when you cant fork out more money for what was free with canadian airline"
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Upgrade and lay flat seats."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "They were nice. Speak different languages to cover travelers all over the world. But food wasn't that great."
Pros: "Flight was only about 25% full so we have lots of room to stretch out. Appreciated the vegetarian option for the meal. It was tasty."
Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "No wifi, so no entertainment. But we did get 2 packets of snacks!"
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Pros: "Quick boarding/deplaning and super friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The fact that I had to download an app for onboard entertainment prior o my flight is farcical."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "Everything else was fine. I was even able to access my luggage in LAX to retrieve my medication, which I accidentally had left in there. Thanks for that."
Cons: "Stewardess was so big and clumsy, that she had to hold on to the overhead bins and wake me up every time she squeezed through aisle and scraped by me. I know you cannot discriminate against big staff, but you have to make the aisle wider if you want your passengers to be comfortable and undisturbed."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Cons: "Cramped and overcrowded"
Pros: "Finding the flight I needed"
Cons: "Found the flight on the United site but couldn't buy it because it wouldn't let me enter my birthday. Called to book over the phone right then and the price was $100 more. Went online to check and the price was 100 suddenly. Went to kayak and they still had the original price. Games like that make choose United last"
Pros: "Flight was early!"
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"
Pros: "On time, clean newer plane"
Cons: "No entertainment options, were promised free wifi to watch superbowl at the gate only to be told later there were ZERO options for entertainment, no tv, movie or wifi let alone free."
Cons: "It would be nice to see a smile and enthusiasm from the attendants. Service? Waited almost two hours before my empty bottle was removed from my tray top. Asian airline attendants can teach UAL's a thing or two about the art of service."
Pros: "That's it was fast and organized"
Pros: "I liked the coffee."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least 45 minutes, making me miss my connecting flight. After that I had to wait 7 hours for the next available flight. Also the connecting flight was all the way on the other side of the airport. No one at the airport would help with directions to the next boarding area."
Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"
Cons: "It was ok. We had to connect to the their wifi in order to watch movies, yet the wifi continued to buffer. So it wasn't the best."
Pros: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."
Pros: "-Flight Departed On Time From Newark To Phoenix Sunday 1/3/2016. -Flight Arrived 30 Minutes Early In Phoenix AZ. -United A.L. Fight Staff Is 1st Rate!"
Cons: "-United Airlines Check In Procedure @ Terminal C Newark International, Bag Drop Off & Colridinated TSA Check In System Was OverCrowded, Seemed Un-Organized, And Inefficient! -United Airlines Would Be Better Served To Assign Two Ajirline Agents To Assisit United Passengers With Bag Drop Offs & Flight/Seat Assignmnets. -Also The Fact That United A.L. Charges $25.00 Additional For Each Bag Is Ridiculous! Just Build The Cost Into Each Ticket Peice. Southwest Airlines Is Ahead Of The Curve On This! That's One Reason Why Southwest Is So Successful'"
Pros: "Excellent and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Pilots did a good job comforting passengers about duration of flight, weather and safety. Smooth flight for all 8 hours. Sevice was good."
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."
Pros: "No turbulence smooth flight. Friendly pleasant pilot. Quickly landed parked and unloaded passengers."
Cons: "Longest security line I've ever seen. I almost missed my flight though I was 3 hours early. Weird set up at departures. At gate warned flight overbookedso we were all stressed we may not even get seat though mine was booked months in advance. I was in zone 4 and they only allowed zones 1-3 to stow carry on items that we had to already lug around the airport for hours. I was forced to check my regulation sized bag in the passageway to the plane as well as everyone else in my zone. Economy seat especially tiny and cramped. Unpleasant flight attendents."
Pros: "I like the o assemblers that rode with me. Two individuals that were extremely kind to me Jim and Ethan Farley that were in the same situation I was in."
Cons: "After a rough start in Honolulu we landed in San Francisco to catch our connecting flight to Chicago but when arriving to the gate before the plane left I along with the other passengers were ignored and given no information as to why we couldn't board the plane. The best they could do was St Louis. Frustrated is an understatement."
