Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fllight landed early and departed a few minutes early too - YAY!"
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty. Got a whole row to myself, in an otherwise packed flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Sandwich was pricey. Got glared at and eyeballed, for having a whole row to myself. LOL"
Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Pros: "The logo on the plane"
Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"
Pros: "Flight attendant were super nice and friendly"
Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"
Pros: "Their services m"
Cons: "There was no tv and it was a bit chilly in the flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome!"
Pros: "Great level of service."
Pros: "On time, within 5 minutes. Great customer service."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very cold in beginning of flight but warmed up!"
Pros: "Convenient. On time. Polite service. Easy to book."
Cons: "No meal service is fine. But serving meals a la carte for extra money and other add on services for additional charges is similar to Ryanair. And Ryanair is much much cheaper fares."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"
Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked was my seats. Closer to the main door. The faster I get off this plane the faster my vacation starts. Maybe your employees need a vacation too!"
Cons: "The stewardess were quit rude made the whole experience horrible thanks Alaskaairline"
Pros: "Plane was clean, Mediterranean snack box tasted great and my Jack on the rocks was almost perfect. Put it in a real glass and I'd feel like king of the world."
Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board the plane were amazing and I'm sure equally as frustrated as the passengers. The gates were mixed up at the airport. We were told we had to move gates and would be delayed one hour. One hour turned into two and just before noon they told us to rush boarding. If we didn't take off by noon the pilots would time out. They timed out and we had to deplane. Alaskan was not telling us very much information and we were again delayed until 2:15. We started boarding at about 1:35 and we sat on the plane until well after 2:15. Apparently there were mechanical issues and again we had to deplane. We, as were all of the other passengers, were extremely upset. They couldn't tell us what was going to happen. A supervisor came out and basically said I can refund you, you can rebook, or you can wait it out. There were limited spaces on flights for the next day. Finally, at 4:30, they boarded us again and took off at 5. The whole experience was extremely upsetting. Overall, we were delayed 7 and a half hours. We missed a whole day of vacation and lost money, with very little remorse or compensation from Alaskan airlines."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "No usb cords."
Pros: "Flight was smooth for most of it. Free Mai tai at the end was a bonus!"
Cons: "It may have been because I was next to an engine... :) but I couldn't hear them on the speaker. I missed all the announcements."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "It was disappointed that I paid to upgrade to first class and there was a cat next to me... I bonded with a group of other passengers over our cat allergys. Thankfully there was another passenger giving out beadryl. many people sneezing the whole flight. The passenger with the cat was nice, giving chocolate to all the flight attendants. At one point he had the cat out on His lap petting it... I was waken from my sleep with my eyes swollen shut and sneezing. you will see other complaints about this flight... As for me, I want my upgrade refunded. I did not eat, I did not watch movies.... I did not get to enjoy my flight."
Pros: "Service, seats, boarding time and lack of delays"
Cons: "I wasn't aware that in flight entertainment options were available in tablet form."
Cons: "The flight back was delayed over 1 hour and I had friends waiting to pick me up."
Pros: "Smooth and great crew!"
Pros: "The boarding process was good... and we got in early."
Cons: "The food was expensive. And no entertainment system."
Pros: "the friendliness of the stewards returning home to Hawaii."
Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."
Pros: "Organized boarding and arrived early."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "got there"
Cons: "the brat in front of me screaming"
Pros: "I liked how relatively quick the boarding process was. The flight was short and sweet."
Cons: "Not at the fault of the airline but I was seated in front of a family with two small children. They were loud and kicked my seat on several occasions. Very unpleasant. But no major complaints about the crew."
Pros: "We were able to leave a little early, the flight was fast, and we arrived about 30 mins ahead of schedule."
Pros: "The flight attendants on flight 833 from PDX to Honolulu were memorable. They genuinely looked as if they were happy to be there and enjoyed serving us. They went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable and made many rounds to ask if anyone needed more water, food, pens to fill out the customs forms, etc."
Pros: "Nothing too much money for a two hour flight with no amenities. Get rid of the awful snack pack."
Cons: "We checked our bags at the request of airport staff to help with overhead storage and by the time we boarded there was no overhead space and we had to place backpacks under seat leaving no leg space because of silver box under the middle seat."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, junk food, junk entertainment"
Pros: "On time. Good price no frills flight."
Pros: "Tablet for $10 with movies was a good deal."
Cons: "Paid for gogo Internet day pass when there was no service and no internet once we were 20 min into flight.... They should make a point to let people know the service is not available and that tablets replace it. Also the fact that the Internet was $16 and did not come with any movies or ability to stream is a ripoff. Also there was a time I asked an attendant for a ginger ale and the response was "yeah this a the trash cart" with an attitude was upsetting. It's a very long flight."
Pros: "I like the airplane."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and I was so comfortable. The seats were squishy and I had more space for my back AND my feet under the seat I front of me. I really enjoyed how the captain would point out different mountain ranges or land marks as we flew over them. Even though we started a little late and had some turbulence we still arrived on time!"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful!"
Pros: "Arrived safely. Price was average. Experience was average. Legroom was average. Nice flower taped to toilet."
Cons: "Crew member made many sarcastic comments about passengers aloud. Snacks were bad."
Pros: "This was a great flight too."
Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."
Pros: "On time and comfortable seating. The onboard WiFi is an interesting feature. I like it, but the onboard entertainment selection is rather lacking."
Cons: "kids crying for 90% of the flight a couple rows away. pilot would keep fasten seatbelt sign lit for long periods even though there was no turbulence. Then when the slightest turbulence arrived he/she would turn it back on immediately. Makes for going to bathroom a gambling proposition and snarky comments from flight attendants for those who decided to stay in line for bathrooms."
Pros: "Great flight attendants! I traveled with a 1yr old and a 5 yr old both boys and our flight was 5 hrs. My son had to use the bathroom quite a few times and my 1 yr old was asleep the attendants helped my son walk to the bath and walked him back to his seat! I'm thankful they could help because moving through the seats just seemed impossible with my sleeping toddler!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth- the seats are ok."
Cons: "Don't mess with Donna the flight attendant."
Pros: "Unfortunately our flight that we paid for premium economy seats gave us the opportunity to spend 3 years with a sick family behind us that did not understand what germ control was. Leaving us with coughing and sneezing into the back of us. That teamed up with their inability to not sleep while their 2 small children screamed and kicked the back of our seats was atrocious. We ended up in Iceland sick with a cold and exhausted from the entire experience. Staff was ok and had no issues but passengers really should be handled that need education in common courtesy."
Pros: "The attentive and pleasant flight attendants and crew. The flight time was much shorter than scheduled."
Cons: "Main cabin amenities such as snacks and entertainment remain bare without the premium service. Why isn't the lower fuel cost benefiting the fare payers yet?"
Pros: "Very smooth no issues."
Cons: "Would've liked to have gotten in earlier."
Pros: "The boarding was fast quick and the staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The bathrooms were very dirty and there was not enough food and drink supplies."
Pros: "Fueron muy amables en el aeropuerto y en el avión"
Cons: "La atención de las personas a cargo"
Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"

Cons: "Delayed for an hour because of changing tire"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing. I was HORRIBLY ILL the entire 6.5hour flight, vomiting LITERALLY every 15minutes in the bathroom. They took care of me in every way possible. You have no idea how THANKFUL I WAS AND AM FOR THEM. SO MUCH ALOHA FROM HAWAII, best flight crew EVER!!! PLEASE reward them"
Cons: "If I wasn't deathly ill right before I had to get on the flight!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! They were all so nice and helpful"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience"
Pros: "Crew was great. Always attentive to needs of the passengers."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Pros: "Crew was really great."
Cons: "Electrical outlets didn't work. Wi-fi didn't work. Flight was delayed. Wasn't a lot of leg room even in first class."
Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"
Cons: "Why use old planes for such a long flight? Toilet overflowed, poor quality tv, and only peanuts?"
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Cons: "The attitude of the employees."
Pros: "On time. Quick and easy flight!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that were were able to watch movies complementary, staff was very kind and looked good and for the most part the air craft was spacious than United Airlines"
Cons: "I disliked the fact that their weren’t any charging station, I wasn’t able to to charge my telephone device previously but I thought I would be okay sonce air crafts that I have boarded have out lets to charge devices, was an inconviencesince I wasn’t anle to contact family. Also there was complementary movies to watch but there werent any head phones that were given, united aire lines provided us with head phones for entertainment."
Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."
Pros: "clean. friendly. decent snacks."
Cons: "warm cabin. small seats with no head support. not enough drink cart passes."
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "Short flight so no food, drink or entertainment."
Pros: "Good service smooth flight"
Cons: "The food on bosrd"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Pros: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Cons: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pros: "Early boarding for family. Flight crew was decent"
Cons: "Super cramped seats. Entertainment system was broken. Only small snacks and drinks for a 5.5 hour flight"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."
Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Pros: "There were no problems at all, the only thing some times the entertainment would go out or slow, nothing else."
Pros: "I liked everything."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Cons: "Not knowing where our seat was until the very last was disconcerting. My wife and I did not get to sit together"
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat is the smallest business seat I have ever encountered. First and last time I fly the 767 with Delta. Can't believe the designers where so stupid"
Pros: "A very pleasant experience, nice crew."
Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."
Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Great no complaints"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. I don’t recall the fair but this was a bargain and we were safe."
Cons: "Not enough water served. More snacks please"
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Cons: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Pros: "Decent amount of bathrooms"
Cons: "I was shocked that we weren't provided better and more food for an expensive and lengthy flight. Also there were no head rest tv's. They plane seemed very old"
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Pros: "thay we didn't crash"
Cons: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Checkin was a nightmare! Not clearly marked and very confusing at LAX."
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."
Cons: "It was terrible. A missing flight attendant caused an extra delay in departure. Missed connecting flight. American Airlines was not prepared to assist all the stranded travelers. Had to spend night in the airport until I could get on a flight the next day. This was not what I paid for."
Pros: "COMFORTABLE SEATS EVEN FIR A BIG GUY LIKE ME, FRIENDLY STAFF."
Cons: "LAST RED EYE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Food was good but had to purchase on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Delays.... The crew didn't know our gate was changed until we told him. Some of the crew were very rude."
Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"
Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."
Pros: "I loved the flight, the service, and the whole experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. That's the best part."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."
Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "I couldn't believe that this long flight had NOTHING in the form of entertainment. No wifi to watch on your own device and no inflight entertainment. I was stuck in the middle of 2 people with a baby with nothing to pass the hours. Unbelievable!!!"
Cons: "4 hr delayed departure. fine... better safe than sorry when there's a mechanical problem. BUT-- there was no compensation.. no free drinks, no free food worse: the flight left after lunch but there was only breakfast food (since it had been a morning flight). and THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD FOR SALE. despite the 4 hour delay. we were starving. then... we FINALLY arrive... and wait another full HOUR for the gate to be opened. because it had "timed out" (because we were so late?) and apparently, they have to call someone in from who knows where to unlock the gate... it took an hour! we basically lost a full day of our Hawaiian vacation"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"
Cons: "There's very little room between sest rows."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"
Cons: "Very rude lady working at United desk at LAX. I am a veteran and I have very bad anxiety and PTSD and my wife (who is active duty) were split up for the flight so we had asked to be seated next to one another since we had picked our seats online prior to flying. The lady was very rude rolling her eyes saying that there was nothing she could do for us besides us asking people to possibly switch seats even though my spouse had the United app open and showed two seats to upgrade too and she didn't even ask if we wanted to upgrade to be next to each other. At this point I had to take my anxiety medication and as we were taking off one of the flight attendants said we could ask about upgrading but yet the lady at the desk said nothing."
Pros: "service was superb. Our stewardesses were great"
Cons: "The meal was horrible. Never a good idea to serve a breaded dish if the dish will end up soaking the steam and be soggy by the time the passenger gets it. Bread was too hard for the plastic ware to be able to cut through it. Entertainment system was down too."
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "Over 1 hour late. We sat on the plane after boarding all that time. Late for things that should have been done before boarding ( fueling and more food). The movie and TV shows froze and skipped, so we're hard to follow."
Pros: "I had two seats to myself because it was a small flight. I was able to sleep most of the flight"
Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."
Pros: "Outlets at all the seats."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, which would be fine if they tell people ahead of time. This is a long flight if you don't come prepared."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin was hot the entire flight. It was a red eye but the lights were kept on bright for most of the flight."
Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"
Pros: "I upgraded to first class so the food and service was very good. Loved the super adjustable lay flat seats."
Cons: "Even in first class, it was clear United doesn't care about repairing anything that won't keep the plane from flying. The entertainment console was damaged to the point it wouldn't even fit back together and none of the headphone jacks were operational on an 8 hour flight. We were also understandably delayed by a medical emergency onboard but United saw fit to further inconvenience the entire plane of passengers by searching the cargo hold for the the deplaned passengers luggage long after they were gone, rather than send it back on the next return flight. The crew said the decision came from corporate and clearly thought it was as ridiculous as we did. Given that United was valuing this seat at well over $2k, I think it's reasonable to expect the amenities to be in good repair."
Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."
Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."
Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."
Pros: "The service was much more friendly and polite than the last time I flew united."
Cons: "Cramped seating very high food prices. Electric phone sockets didn't work AGAIN even though the green light was on. Couldn't charge my phone at all..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over one hour. I had to ask to flight attendant to ask the pilot if they could wave the TV/movie entertainment fees due to the delay with the flight, which was approved. I did not like the fact that I had to ask about that when that offer should had been automatic. In the past, when flying and a delay happens, other airlines like Hawaiian and Delta have waved their entertainment fees. The baggage claim took over 45 minutes to release the flights luggage."
Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"
Pros: "On board entertainment did not work but otherwise a good flight."
Pros: "Roomy seats & leg room, free movies, arrived 30min early."
Cons: "That one attendant, that prob should look for another job, she does not enjoy that line of work, just the paycheck. No fault of United: 2 crying babies..."
Pros: "Thank you."
Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"
Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."
Pros: "Crew was great entertainment was poor"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was two younger female crew on the flight. They were friendly"
Cons: "Horrible ground crew service. I was assigned to seat 33B, when boarding the computer printed out a new boarding pass with new seat 30B for me without any kind of notices in advance. I wasn't traveling alone, of course we would like to sit next to each other. When got on the plane, the new seat I got 30B was already taken by another older lady which her boarding pass has exact same seat as mine "30B". I had to walk to the very front of the plane to talk to someone and he was no help because he said "I had to wait for the agent to talk to me". I stood there by the door for 20 minutes or so, telling him my seat got change and there's someone sitting there and I would prefer to go back to the seat o was originated to the first time as it was exit row seat. The ground crew said I can't and I need to sit at 30B which there's another person sitting. He left, came back 10 minutes later saying the same thing. How am I supposed to sit on 30B when there's someone with exact same boarding pass, same seat sitting. He said "no one is sitting there. She moved. You need to go sit at that seat", I walked there and nope, she's still there. I wasn't gonna waste my time arguing because obviously United ground crew member were no help and rude. I went back to seat 33 where I was supposed to sit and of course it was empty. They kept telling me it was a FULL flight with no open seat but that wasn't true at all. Seat 33 was open so the seat 2 seats away from me on the same row. No wonder why asian airlines have better rating in services compare to American. Your crew members are rude and just not smiley. Not even an apologize was once said to me when I had to deal with YOUR mistake United airline."
Cons: "No food during long flights"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Received a window seat. No one was sitting in the middle, so it was an extremely comfortable flight."
Cons: "No wifi available."
Pros: "I liked the space in the economy plus and drinks were served often."
Cons: "It's was a 9 hour flight and the only snacks that were offered were the ones you had to pay for. I had a headache getting off the plane because I almost starved the entire ride. The staff was helpful but dead no character to them or atleast they didn't show it. Also as long as this flight was my screen froze for the last 5 hours but I didn't miss anything because I couldnt listen to the TV from the start. The female end where u put the headphone plug had something jammed in it so I watched watever my neighbor was watching and clued together what they were saying in the movie. Needless to say I was bored out of my mind and my stomach was not very happy with me. Hopefully my flight in 9 days is a lot better."
Pros: "Nothing. Pretty gross plane."
Cons: "Coffee spilled in my seat."
