Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Not like...... I lost some Metal items that I put under the seat in front of me and in the rush forgot to pick them up. Oops this was a dislike. Was unable to collect them as I can't describe them."
Cons: "The whole trip was good other than above item. I really like Alaska and especially the crew."
Cons: "I didn’t know my seat on my 3rd flight and had to move 3 times"
Pros: "Straight flight"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours waiting for “catering.” When we were about to pull out, we had to go back to the gate because of a passenger fight. Very unpleasant flight. This could have all been avoided."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the leg room for a 5 ft 10 inch man was fine in the main cabin. Pre ordered food and that was good."
Cons: "If people understood how to get off the plane"
Cons: "If flight 339 from Orlando to San Diego is not delayed by one hour. It was hot and uncomfortable waiting in the plane for one hour before taking off.."
Pros: "Loved the new menu in1st. class."
Cons: "I didn’t like about not knowing your seats and being blocked by the airline."
Pros: "I'm an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters."
Pros: "It was a smoooth good flight. Flight attendants were great and helpful"
Cons: "My luggage is somewhere else and I have fishing trip tomorrow and no cloths to keep warm."
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight no entertainment. Food prices too high."
Cons: "food is terrible !!! need improvement"
Pros: "I generally love Virgin/Alaska. The crew is friendly and the flights are generally on time."
Cons: "The WiFi was inoperable for the duration of the 5-6 hour flight."
Pros: "Overall, good flight."
Cons: "I pay for first class because I want a higher level of peace and quiet and a lower level of distractions. On two instances, first during the mid flight cockpit bathroom break, and second during the 30 min final descent, the crew engaged in conversations between themselves in such load and animated voices that it was impossible for passengers sitting in the first four - five rows to ignore them. During the cockpit break, the young handsome pilot flirted with the young beautiful flight attendant who had positioned herself to block access to the forward bathroom. They chatted for what seemed like 10 min, her standing and facing us, him standing directly behind her, also facing us. We felt like we were on a soap opera set. And during the final 30 descent into Seatte, when we from Florida were extremely tired, the two forward flight attendants talked with each other in such load voices that it was impossible to keep reading my book. Admittedly, they were just chatting, but doing so in such a load voice that we could not escape."
Pros: "I didn’t have any problem at all everything worked perfectly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to a maintenance issue. We were put on a different plane and departed. Staff was very helpful."
Cons: "I really wish the airline could sort out the whole "check at the gate for seating" because I don't think anyone wants to buy a plane ticket just to deal with the uncertainty of if they are going to be able to fly or not."
Cons: "We had a specific situation on our flight tonight that was especially disruptive. Shortly after take-off, my fiancé who was traveling with me, felt the teenager (most likely a minor) directly behind him pushing his seat. My fiancé turned around to ask her to stop. Rather than apologizing and stopping, the teenager immediately began complaining about how my fiancé was encroaching on her space. My fiancé replied that it was well within his rights to lean his seat back. The teenager responded with further complaints. Her comments were out of line and rude. It was clear that she was not satisfied with my fiancé having his seat leaning back. My fiancé eventually put his seat back, and the teenager stopped complaining. We believed that the situation had been resolved, but apparently the teenager was not satisfied. Instead, she went to a flight attendant and lodged a complaint against my fiancé. Rather than hear our side, the flight attendant immediately asked us to move to a different seat. We were forced to move, against our will, to two separate middle seats further forward in the plane. We no longer were able to sit next to each other for the remaining five hours of the flight. And this was all because one particular teenager did not want my fiancé to put his seat back, which he is certainly allowed to do. Overall, the situation was handled poorly. We paid to sit together on a flight, but due to one other passenger's attitude, we were forced to sit in seats that we did not choose apart from one another. The flight attendant should have at least heard our side of the story and offered us an alternative. Instead, we were forced to accommodate another passenger who was in the wrong. Not to mention, throughout this entire process - which lasted about 30 minutes - I was not able to use the GoGo Inflight Internet Package I had just paid for. That was money wasted. The experience was embarrassing, disruptive, and awkward. We love Alaska Airlines, and we are usually pleased with their customer service. However, tonight, the customer service we received did not meet our needs; instead the flight attendant exacerbated the situation and we left our flight feeling frazzled, angry and disappointed."

Cons: "middle seat, my 13 yo son was in a different row and we couldn't communicate in flight.

There were enough seats avail when I booked, but not once I arrived to the airport."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great during the flight. Prices from Orlando to San Diego were very good."

Cons: "New plane lots of leg room quick flight"
Cons: "Unfortunately I was at the airport 5hrs before my flight and had to wait at the ticket counter 2hrs before they opened. I feel that customers should be aware before they arrive that the ticket counter is going to be the only one that wasn't open. We could've made different accommodations where we wouldn't have to sit at the ticketing counter for 2hrs. When the staff arrived though they were really helpful and made sure to get us out to our gate with haste."

Cons: "Seats did not match seat map"

Cons: "I wasn't aware of fees being in place to change for earlier or later flights. But the fees don't apply when the airline needs your seat. I value my time and was unpleasantly surprised that I had to wait 4hrs for my scheduled fligh bc I didn't have the fee to change to an earlier time"
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."

Cons: "At the Orlando airport, the LACK OF SEATING BY the gate!"
Pros: "Decent food . On time arrival !"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. We landed early and the crew was lovely to fly with."

Pros: "The Delta planes on both legs were comfortable and the crew very pleasant."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."

Pros: "The seats were comfy. Crew pleasant. All was good"

We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Pros: "The cookies were great, the captain was very good and gave good excuse's On why we we were behind."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Sandwiched between 2 big guys 1 of which should be made to buy 2 seats!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."
Cons: "Serve cofee"
Cons: "The connection in Miami didn’t happen - the flights crew on the ORLANDO yo to Miami flight were rude and unhelpful - the plane sat in the tarmac waiting for a gate so flight arrived 15 minutes before planned departure - we inquired as to whether the plane would be held - response- despite having internet access was “ I don’t know “ you’ll have to check with gate agent - oh and by the way the flight attendant was virtually laying on the front seats - she as grossly obese and was so large as he walked the aisles she would hit passengers every time she turned around - we ran to the gate arriving 8 minutes before departure - gate was shut two gate agents were reading social media posts on their phones - we inquired about the flight - the gate agent said “ you missed the flight “ and then sat down and continued on her phone - the other one at least looked up and told us where to them go for assistance - eventually we were assisted and offferd 1 to wait u til the next day to go or to go through London - we took the London option. 1. I was informed by anAA employee they the connection is frequently missed due to similar problems. 2. Flight attendants and gate agents will bankrupt the airline with their horrible attitude. - they should be fired."
Cons: "The food was pretty terrible, especially the egg breakfast."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Not as friendly as I hoped"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."

Pros: "The aircraft, the entertaining"
Cons: "Food service"
Pros: "Customer service"

Cons: "The plane boarded and left gate a little late but had a maintenance issue with one of its doors so plane had to return to gate. We finally got off the ground almost three hours late but staff tried to be as helpful as possible though they didn’t know much. It was good the passengers seemed fairly patient and accepting. The horror was at the airport in Venice where it took over two hours in very long line just to get through passport check."
Pros: "Fast reliable two thumbs up!!!"
Pros: "The flight was too short for food or drink"
Pros: "Plane on time plane in reasonable condition"
Cons: "American airlines keep increasing their greediness by charging for everything, provide fewer benefits to frequent flyers and have poor customer service They acting like United as if they are a monopoly that can charge what they want and treat customers like they feel like Hoping for small airlines that get a better service and price"
Cons: "There was a 3 hour flight delay in JFK but to be honest there is a lot to do in the airport and Nice bars and shops next to the gate so I was occupied. Annoying for family picking me up in Scotland however."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and we had a safe trip in general"
Cons: "2 hours of delay to take the airplane in Orlando and they changed the flight to Charlotte when it was planned it would go to Philadelphia but it was not a big deal to me."
Pros: "Readiness for take off was well organized and quick"
Pros: "The options for entertainment were great."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. I received errors when trying to access gogoinflight on my tablet, even when I had the most updated app. Therefore I was unable to use the app during my flight to Philadelphia. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane. So we waited in the plane for the whole hour and half while a maintenance issue was being resolved. The delay almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport kiosks, service desks, and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Pros: "The service AA provides is very constant in time and that is good"
Cons: "Chairs could have more comfort"
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "food was cold and the soda I had had no gas."
Cons: "Plane was very warm upon boarding due to issues with auxiliary cooling but informed it would change as engines turned on . I sat in row 20 and it was very cold during flight. Flight attendant inquired about comfort. It improved for about 10 minutes and returned to cold state . Noticed that one attendant put on some kind of jacket due to coldness . Nearby passengers retrieved blankets from their carry on baggage. Glad I had at least a light jacket to throw over me and that my legs were partially covered. Guess it's better to be too cool than too hot. Otherwise. It was s great flight ."
Pros: "I landed"
Cons: "Flight was changed which left me with five minutes to get off one plane and onto another. I got to my first gate early and attempted to ask the person there about the timing. She walked away without looking at. On her way down the hall says it will be open in an hour. An hour later I go to the gate. A woman is there and finishing up with another customer. When it was my turn, she said she was closed, yet she helped the joy behind me for over an hour. I know this because I got In the generic questions line and stood there for an hour watching the woman who was "closed" help this guy. When I was FINALLY able to talk to someone, the only thing he told me was to walk fast. That was well worth the 2 hour wait. I will never fly with American again."
Pros: "That I finally arrived and got off the plane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for three hours, we landed and sat in the plane for another hour to wait for a gate to open up. After apparently being hbaged three times. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."
Pros: "Check in was done on my phone, boarding passes there too. Very convenient. On time, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment. Asked for a cup of hot tea and got a cup of of coffee with a tea bag in it. Must have been because it was such an early morning flight! Didn't get biscuiit either! When I gave full cup to attendant collecting them and told her what was in the cup she never said a word or offered fresh cup."
Cons: "There was an hour delay and this was a very noisy flight and way too much movement. People constantly getting up and down to talk with their friend or family members."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late because co-pilot was late. Totally unprofessional."
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Pros: "The crew was super sweet"
Cons: "There were a crazy amount of delays to deal with."
Pros: "That it reassured me that American is one of the worst airlines"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to the fact that it was an old plane that had problems with the engine. All the passengers were on the plane while they were trying to fix the problem. Then all 250+ passengers had to go to the worst ticket agents ever to try to get new flights. Terrible. Awful. The worst."
Pros: "Everything other than the entertainment system was fine. Boarding process was very smooth!"
Cons: "The entertainment system -- touch screen interface through which you can usually listen to music, watch tv shows and movies -- was down for the entire flight. Not fun."
Cons: "I did not get to go on my trip because I was told that I couldn't travel outside of country on a one-way ticket and when I call the airline customer service number they were not helpful either. I lost my money and flight, they wouldn't even let suspend the ticket for later used. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "Ticket price is reasonable when I bought it 6 weeks before my trip."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane is old and crowded. Boarding was very late. The rest was just ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice which caused me to miss my connection flight to kingston and i was not given hotel accodation because the hotels affiliated with American Airlines were filled"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that if you're cold on the flight unless you're flying first class, you're subject to freeze the entire ride to your next destination. I was told " we only have blankets for 1st class boarding only". So my economy class is not expensive enough to be comfortable and warm on our trips as we'll. I think its very ridiculous, and immature that because I fly a different class of flight im subject to be very uncomfortable the rest of my flight. Someone should do something about this prejudice rule against flyers."
Cons: "I have to many delays. And luggage missing"
Cons: "The lack of communication, I received an email about my flight changing at 9am but I did not see it because I was at the airport. No one at the gate said anything to us until we started going to the counter. I was switched to a standby flight which the employee thought it was more important to get an employees husband on and offered me a seat for $1,300 in first class if I wanted to get on "that bad" or another flight 3 1/2 hours later that would not qualify me for a lunch ticket. That 1:40 flight was delayed and we stayed sitting in the plane waiting for permission to leave at 2:56pm. I was to be in NY at 3pm to meet my family on other flights but I got there at 6:30pm while they waited for hours!!! Communication is very important, I know that incidents happen, but this was ridiculous! The flight attendants even ran out of free pretzel snacks and offered items for purchase. Will not forget this experience for a while."
Pros: "STAFF WAS VERY WELCOMING"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed, service was bad. Seating tight."
Cons: "Hi - My flight from Orlando to Charlotte was delayed due to mechanical issues. This caused me to miss my connecting flight from Charlotte to Seattle. I was supposed to get home to Seattle by 5:45pm but I actually made it home at 12 midnight. There was no flight entertainment for a cross country flight! The only option was to stream via my personally device. This would have been fine if there were outlets to charge personal devices at each set! The crew at the ticketing counter was VERY rude. The lady who finally helped me was nice. that was after standing in several lines!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The service is horrible overall horrible, will never travel with American Airlines"

Cons: "Orlando airport and security checkin was horrific. The most disorganized I've ever experienced. Horrific!!!"

Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly. Pilot was nice."
Cons: "My bag did not make it to my destination and was sent to another airport."
Cons: "Pecan Chicken was cold!"
Cons: "Just wish they had electricity to charge gadgets on the flight (even Megabus has that these days!)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. Not fun."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "The only issue that would have improved the trip would be if tickets were free Lol"
Cons: "United lost my bags, flight itself was standard."
Pros: "The flight was on time... that is about all..."
Cons: "Too late to download app once on plane so stuck for hours without entertainment on a long flight. They wanted to charge for most everything. First class was not as good as economy on other airlines. I have no idea why anyone would select United on purpose. I know I will not pick them again..."
Pros: "787 is a great plane"
Cons: "My flight was rescheduled, so I ended up waiting about a 12 hour delay in Germany"
Cons: "Wasted time at Orlando, missed my direct flight from Washington to Accra. I had to be re routed through Europe to Accra and spent more than 12 hrs more"
Pros: "Economy Plus was well worth the small up charge."
Cons: "Took a long time to remove your dishes after the meal; never offered a mid flight snack."
Cons: "Connecting flight from Orlando, FL to San Francisco, CA. Departed on time but still arrive 40 minutes after schedule. Need to have more accurate time. Almost cause me to miss my next flight."
Pros: "Amazing flight."
Pros: "Mebbe UA learned its lesson after being skewed for a couple of customer horror stories. My domestic flight from MCO to ORD was entirely pleasant. The plane left on time & arrived on time. I noticed quite a few airport employees at O’Hare had a chip on their shoulders, as if they hated their job but needed it to live. There’s better jobs out there if you don’t like dealing w the public."
Pros: "everythinf was geeat ! on time Departure and early arrival"
Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy + (more legroom) , I even did not know why I have been cerdited toget it, bit I definitely lieked it. I also liked the option to volunteer for check our carry-on at the gate. Coffe and snck quite adequte for th short journey"
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - courteous/aware/friendly. The flight, although 2 hours delayed (9;20pm scheduled departure) was pleasant and smooth. Also, the de-boarding process was surprisingly quick."
Cons: "A 2 hour delay at 9:20pm at night is unfortunate yet frustrating experience, especially when we moved our flight up due to a travel warning for EWR (ironically enough, our originally scheduled flight (1922 MCO-EWR). I'm giving an overall OK (instead of good) due to the fact that there were no snacks (although I did not want anything, it didn't go unnoticed) and although there was free inflight entertainment for personal devices, I feel the passengers should have been given free internet access - in my opinion, it would have been the appropriate thing to do. In any case, this experience doesn't change my positive opinion of United."
Pros: "The boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were too crowded and not comfortable even for only 3 hours flight."
Pros: "The flight got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "The check in process was a zoo. Stood in line for 45 minutes to check in with United. Only 2 reps were working manual check ins. About 6 reps were accepting bags but mostly just chit chatting between themselves. They pointed anyone with a question to the very long manual check in line. It was very obvious they did not care. The plane was packed solid and it was uncomfortably warm on the flight."
Pros: "Flight departed on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "United baggage check in at Orlando Airport was chaotic with huge crowds, inattentive United staff ignoring passengers, and a baggage conveyor belt that was broken down."
Pros: "Dreadful flight and landing. No TVs and couldn't order veg meal for connecting long haul flight, check in staff were efficient at least."
Cons: "The landing was erratic and very bumpy"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."
Pros: "First overseas flight to Europe. Very impressed with everything with the flight. Comfortable, great crew, great food. Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "The exit seat was extremely uncomfortable. ..you can not set up your back"
Pros: "In seat entertainment was pretty good. Food was also surprisingly good, though it would have been nice if bigger. To be fair, it was typical sized for an airline meal."
Cons: "They ran out of wine in economy. I had two tiny cups and then was told they were all out. Seats in economy plus only barely reclined. I just can't sleep on an overnight flight when sitting virtually vertical. I was seated in economy plus so the legroom was reasonable."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Very rough flight but pilot did a good job of keeping passengers informed"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Pros: "United was very accommodating and the flight was lovely. The ticketing agent Tim at MCO was super professional and very helpful in changing our flight. Very pleased with the United Staff and crew on the plane."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They feed us when we first sat down and then they didn't offer anything else until 13 hours later."
Pros: "Weather was bad hence flight landed late by 30 minutes"
Pros: "why they don't board from back of the plane to front.... zoning not ver efficient!"
Cons: "Left late, small seating, almost didnt make the flight overall terrible experience will never fly to denver again"
Cons: "The fact that the airline was running late. Made me late for my arrival and I had to change my plans. They need to work on their time management skills. I don't think I'll be using United again."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The seats were comfortable. The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Much better than frontier airlines However they don't charge for carry on and drink and they are punctuated"
Pros: "I loved the price and it was quick. Awesome"
Pros: "I was treated like a king. Thank you."
Pros: "There was one flight attendant that was really nice and funny and tried very hard to make everyone have a pleasant flight. But there was no movies or tv on a 5 hour flight and the United app will not let you watch anything even if you buy the internet. I won't be flying united again."
Pros: "One of the staff asked me for my boarding pass when I was already seated! She was not kind about it as I was White she was not? Then proceeded to tell me to move when a man was in my seat(she said nothing to him) so I moved across the aisle! After awhile a young staff came up to me kindly said I'm sorry she did that to you there was no reason you had to be moved!"
Pros: "Flight was better than expected ! Flight was 2 in a half hours but all the movies were complimentary for the day which was really nice. It helps me be distracted I was on a plane. I've always took united airlines"
Pros: "For once on United, flight attendants were very attentive over the entire flight. They could not have been more pleasant or more willing to serve. I can give the 5 stars for this flight."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "Was great they gave us the option to move our original flight to avoid the bad weather in Chicago. Friends traveling on American at the same time didn't get a chance to do this. It was very much appreciated and saved us from a very frustrating travel day. Also Offered free entertainment the whole flight because we departed only 10 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight on time!!"
Cons: "Get people to leave their larger carry-on's at the bottom of the gate instead of walking them on the plane only to slow things down when they have to go against traffic to take I back off because it won't fit on these smaller planes. The St George airport staff does a very good job of this. You can't even walk up the ramp with it because someone is there taking your bags."
Cons: "I've never flown with this company before this trip and there's a lot that I learned: 1) Expect cancelled or delayed flights 2) Do not expect any form of compensation for lost time (unless you are aggressive and demand it, but I'm not good at being mean) 3) Do not expect friendly costumer service 4) Flight >5 hours, only expect 1 drink 5) Do not expect your Gate listed on your ticket to be correct. Always check the airport TVs, since they don't announce gate changes at your terminal. 6) You will have plenty of miserable stories to share with your fellow miserable airplane companions. 7) Just don't do it. Save yourself travel stress and go with another airline. 8) I'm not kidding... I was stranded in an airport for 11.5 hours, and lost 1 full day of my vacation due to 2 cancellations."
Cons: "Ride counter people. Being lied to about our luggage. Will no longer fly united."
Cons: "The crew were ok. Didn't feel special"
Pros: "on time smooth flight"
Cons: "seats very small & uncomfortable"
Cons: "All passangers had to de-plane due to technical problems with the aircraft. The captain kept us abreast , but updates were sparse. When we de-planed, NO ONE at United's ticket counters offered any information or directions on what we were supposed to do. We were like sheep; just following the crowd, hoping that other passengers knew what they were doing and where they were going! I specifically asked a "customer service" rep to make an announcement so that we would know what was going on...her reply? "didn't they make one before you got off?" Service was horrible!!! When we landed in DC, we missed our connecting flight and again, United representatives were non responsive and very uncaring about the passengers they are suppose to serve. My party and I (along with other passengers) kept being routed to different gates and told to get information from that gate. After the 3rd reroute, I demanded that we all get better treatment and better communication and information about how to connect for our final destination. That response was met with "I can keep you here until tomorrow morning if you don't like it!" This was from a United Supervisor. My party and I were then routed to San Francisco...our destination was Seattle. When we arrived in S.F. I complained about the service received thus far and was given a $14.00 voucher for my "troubles and inconvenience." We were finally routed to and boarded a plane for our final destination of Seattle, arriving after 1:00 AM in the morning, when we were originally scheduled to arrive at 8pm, the evening prior. I understand that technical problems often times occur, but the crew and United's customer service reps could have done a better job of showing compassion and appreciation for our journey's disruption, inconvenience and missed connections. It was the poor attitudes of these individuals in the CUSTOMER SERVICE industry that really surprised and disappointed me. Their attitudes seemed to be pervasive throughout the company and not the attitudes of a select few employees. The flying experience is not what it use to be. I am on travel again in the next two weeks and actively and deliberately looked for flights on ANY airline OTHER than United. Never again will I fly this airline. Hope this answers your question about my experience. Thomas Moss...A very unhappy and dissatisfied former customer of united."
Pros: "The flight wasn't booked. I got to spread out."
Cons: "The seats still aren't very comfortable."
