Pros: "Fun crew!"
Pros: "Alaska consistently provides an organized pleasant flying experience."
Cons: "One of the flight crew today was a bit on the grumpy side and made several negative comments about Alaska and about customers. Totally not typical for Alaska. Also - In Seattle had to load onto a bus and drive out to the plane.... another layer to a journey. They were well organized BUT"

Pros: "Crew was great, seat was ok"
Cons: "Everything was groovy"
Pros: "Loved the new menu in1st. class."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and beverage service quick. Really hot coffee the best! Great arrival time. I would consider flying Alaska Airlines again."
Cons: "Alaska reassigned my seat to the back wall. Did not recline. Next to the restroom so an intrusive situation. Only 2 items available for PURCHACE on a 745AM departure. Alaska did not tell us baggage claim is in two different terminals or which terminal to use. Seems it could be better organized."
Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "Courteous crew, quick boarding and roght time flight"
Cons: "No free snacks for a six jour flight. Restrooms were too small."
Cons: "Haven’t had it yet"
Cons: "Went to ticket counter at 5:33 and talked with Tyler L, whose boss Jerry had instructed him to not let passengers check in after 5:30. The flight was at 6:10. Tyler smugly smiled while refusing to print a boarding pass, then was unable/uninterested in helping me rebook. I had gone through security and couldn't find boarding pass email. I went through checkin the night before but apparently it didn't finish. Talked with security about getting back to front of the line. I had 30 minutes to walk 600 ft and absolutely could have made that flight. Called 800 number to book a new flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding and take off, arrived early and didn’t have to wait for bags."
Pros: "love direct flight from Omaha to Seattle. timely in getting us off. Crew very responsive. coming through several times to offer us water which is great for a 3 hour flight. thanks."
Cons: "we both bought food. Mine was great. his was mediocre. through no fault of Alaska airlines. we were in row with 3 seats. the other gentleman had a very high weight. He struggled to get his seatbelt to close. Not sure what you can do to fix that. Just a growing USA problem. Where he needed a seat and a half."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Cons: "Entertainment options limited."
Pros: "Seeing me seated next to a young person big enough to need more than one seat (couldn't lower the arm rest), a flight attendant found another seat for me without me asking."
Cons: "If a person needs two seats, maybe they should buy two seats. The streaming movie only came it fitful bits, far inferior to previous provided screens. It also took about twice as long to play as a result. And of course, checking a bag should not be an additional cost, nor should a meal on long flights."
Cons: "Rude people. Guy next tp me was offered food. I'm pregnsnt and wasn't offered food"
Cons: "Waiting for a gate to deboard for almost an hour- poor service!"
Pros: "Every Alaska Airlines employee went above and beyond to make sure our family had a great travel experience. Our seats were assigned together, we were not charged for checking smaller bags, and the beverage/snack service was fast and they checked back often. Seats on this plane were roomy and the flight was not over-crowded. Boarding and de-boarding were easy and relaxed. Arrived ahead of schedule."

Pros: "great job."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "Wanted to pay for a first class upgrade, when seats were available, that those were for free upgrades for perk members. Why offer to sell them if they are free for frequent flyers?"
Pros: "From checking in to my arrival to getting my bag at my destination, everyone was so kind and helpful. Best customer service I have had in an airline. The cheese plate was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine was not the best quality."

Cons: "Pilot error of a few inches off when parking after landing. Could slow down and pronunciation more clearly"
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "The crew and the onboard entertainment were great."
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Cons: "The flight that I booked is from Omaha to Guangzhou, but you guys gave me the ticket shows that there has one stop by Canada, and I don't have the ETA so that the stuffs wouldn't let me get in the flight and I can't make my trip on time! I don't think that is my bad because as a customer YOU( this APP) should be able to let me know I need to get the ETA to support me stop by Canada before I book the ticket from YOU GUYS, and I don't know that, so that I can't get in the flight which is make me feels really tough! And I know that it is not just happen to me but also it happen to other people, there has some people has the same problem as I do, so I don't think you guys should do that! DO NOT sales us the ticket that can't let us get in the flight! As a public APP. You guys should make the notes when you sale the ticket, say" there has a one stop by Canada, IF U don't have ETA, pls don't book it!" Let the people know so that we won't get any trouble OK?!?!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Didn't have to wait long if I asked for refreshments."
Cons: "Needed more instructions on making your cell phone work to get movies, especially that you had to do it before you took off."
Pros: "Really you can't beat a non-stop flight. I travel to Nebraska from Seattle several times a year - I have been stranded in Denver, laid over in Phoenix, routed to the Twin Cities, Vegas, Salt Lake - Alaska non-stop to Omaha has made my lfe a lot better! Friendly service; hassle free boarding - your Omaha ticket counter staff are the best."
Pros: "I was impressed with the friendly stewardesses. They boarded us quickly. It was nice to being a bag for free too. This was my first Alaska Air trip. The seats were more reasonable with space for my knees. Thank you."
Cons: "I requested a wheelchair ahead of time when i booked my flight and asked at omaha airport to make sure i would have one in seattle. No one was there with a wheelchair. I was on a time crunch and couldnt wait until they located one. This caused me discomfort and aggravation."
Pros: "Trip was pretty delayed and they weren't great about communicating that. The inflight entertainment is nice though. Also fly bigger planes 2x2 for a 3.5hr flight is alittle cramped"
Pros: "The crew seemed knowledgeable. The flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The seats are too narrow. I am a normal sized person, sitting in the middle seat, and had to keep me arms as close to myself as possible or bump the people on either side."
Pros: "Smooth, wasy ride. The gal in Omaha, on my return trip, who helped me check in, was so helpful!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."

Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."
Pros: "Pilots were good"
Cons: "Slow drink service"
Pros: "Comfortable and safe flight."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was awesome. I was able to watch NFL games the entire flight which made the flight go by super quick. Our flight was also ahead of schedule which was great as well."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight together. I didn't even have enough room to put my laptop on my lap."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."
Cons: "Having food & being on time would’ve been nice?"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, efficient and friendly crew. On time performance"
Pros: "Crew was nice. The tv/movie technology was fantastic!! Huge selection of movies that made the time fly by, and very easy to use as opposed to my other flight over. Food was good. I love that you get tons of food and drinks (more food than I could eat actually)."
Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "Air conditioning was very loud"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "The movies"
Pros: "I asked twice for a second declaration form as I made a mistake on the first and both requests were ignored by cabin crew. 2 crew members said that they would accommodate me but neither delivered."
Cons: "Not enough searband leg room"
Pros: "Got to destination safely and on time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant, tight seats"
Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."
Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Pros: "I liked that we got to my return destination early"
Cons: "The were no outlets and the wifi was not working. That's a big deal for me because I needed to do work on the plane!"
Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."
Cons: "2 hr delay"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "My comfort zone seat"
Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"

Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"

Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"
Cons: "The restaurant in CHS took 15 minutes to tell me they didn't have what I'd ordered thereby denying me the chance to a real meal all day. I wish they'd put real meals back on the flights"
Pros: "Delta employees knew what they were doing in PV"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "Check in, gate, and plane staff all friendly and efficient. Plane clean and flight on time. Overhead space with full plane was no problem. Service inflight was quick and cheerful."
Cons: "Drop off in San Antonio always a mess. Traffic delays driving up to drop off. Security check 20 minute with no pre approval. Seats crowded. Snack choices predictable."
Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."
Pros: "Flight was short and the pilot informed us quickly when we were starting to decend."
Cons: "Flight was a little over crowded."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Cons: "Not gotten cancelled on August 18 and delayed for 24 hours with no compensation for hotel we had to get. Then would be nice to not get delayed 4 times on today’s flight arriving home at 2 in the morning on a day we HAVE to go to work because we already are in trouble for missing previous day."
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Pros: "Short and great"
Cons: "Everything ok"

Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Pros: "Boarding went well. The service was good. The seats were pretty solid. I like the 2-4-2 seating on the A-332. AA check-in went very smoothly."
Cons: "The touch screens were fairly poor on the entertainment centers. The meals were just OK. The headrests on the seats weren't as supportive as I'd have like on a long flight."
Cons: "Such tiny seats."
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "I am handicapped so I was concerned about my walker and ability to use stairs etc. The crew on the plant and boarding area couldn’t have been more helpful. I was impressed by the comfortable seats and friendly stewardesses. After the plane landed the first officer went to get my walker so I didn’t have to wait."
Cons: "Taxied for two hours, then returned for fuel and discovered an engine problem. Had to change aircraft. No food or entertainment system."
Cons: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. Love American!!"
Cons: "Everything was outstanding!!"
Pros: "My flights were booked through British Airways, but these segments were operated by American. Madrid to Dallas was on a 787 (a very nice ride). Entertainment options were very good (although not as diverse as on British Airways). Food was excellent. The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "There is not enough waiting space at Madrid Terminal 4S for passengers on large aircraft. Boarding was not as fast and orderly as it should have been. Customs and passport control at DFW is very time consuming (much slower than at many other comparable airports). To change terminals, it is necessary to go back through security and then take a train. It took more than 1.5 hours for me to clear customs and get to another terminal for my connection."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Cons: "Kiosk sign-in tried to sell several upgrades prior to issuing boarding pass. Very irritating! Seating was very cramped"
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airline I’ve ever traveled with. They canceled both of my flights and scheduled me for flights the next day each time. Customer service pretty poor. I opted to take a train instead. They didn’t reimburse me either. Awful"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lost my flight and for next avaulable flight was left over by just seeing how other passengers were given priority before me."
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "Great flight crew price was right and I will travel American again!"
Pros: "The crew were helpful and as I have a disability they gave me a chair with moreegroom and closer to the exit."
Cons: "It took a long time before they offered beverages, we were in the air for more than 1.5 hours before they came by to offer drinks"
Pros: "The first leg of trip had a newer aircraft......potentially due to the "mechanical delay" that started the fiasco."
Cons: "I don't usually do reviews, but this experience has prompted me too. I usually pick American over other airlines even if the price is slightly higher but after this last fiasco I doubt I will fly with them again. From the start of the trip there was a delay. I was told that I would have to stay in a hotel in Charlotte because I would miss my connecting flight. I agreed and waited for my flight that was nearly 2 hours late. I arrived in Charlotte and retrieved my bag as instructed and went to the counter. The lady then stated that it was probably best if I tried to get on the last remaining flight even though it showed sold out because "there have been delays all day and plenty of people have been missing their connecting flights". So I rechecked my bag and headed to the game. This flight was delayed, as it was the last for the night, so that all the connecting flights could be made. Okay, that is fair enough....even though I didn't get to board and now I no longer had my bag as this is now on the plane. 30 minutes after the plane left I finally get my voucher for motel along with a $12 voucher for food that can only be used in the terminal restaurants......which are now closed for the night. After 30 minutes of trying to contact the hotel for shuttle information I was advised that they were no longer taking airline vouchers. I , again, approached the ticket counter and I was advised that I "would just have to wait because there are no rooms in the system at this time." And none of this instruction seemed professional or accommodating. After another hour I was approached that now there are no other options in their system for accommodations and I would have to pursue options on my own. So......the higher priced one way ticket just became $100 more at no fault of my own."

Pros: "people were polite and nice"
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "You pay for everything- including wi fi. Cheapest, saddest flights I've ever had. Never again flying United."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Why do all the employees at United try to make you feel like your "putting them out" whenever you ask them anything. I have never experienced how an entire company can walk around with a chip on their shoulder. No life-threatening we are done."
Pros: "Boarded on time"
Cons: "Late to mke!"
Cons: "I never made it to Helena. Flight was delayed 2 hours so I missed my connection and had to fly to an alternate airport and buy myself a rental car and hotel room."

Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that my bag got sent to LAX."
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Cons: "Checkin process was poor - unable to use kiosks; required personnel to check in. Customer rep was alone and line was long. Poor process and lots of angry customers"
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Almost didn't make my connection."
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Everyone was beyond helpful and wonderfully nice."
Pros: "I like the many options that I had to choose from for my filghts"
Cons: "That I could get my seat assignment when I place the reservation"

Pros: "View out the window"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The older female attendant was extremely rude . Noted her inability to communicate with an obvious mentally challenge teenager. This attenders needs to retire she appears to be very tired of her job giving United a very poor image."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."
