Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. 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: "Staff is always helpful and pleasant - text messages about flight changes/departures/gate changes, etc - always updated! And love the usb for charging phone."
Pros: "They're the best airline out there. Affordable, friendly and respectful with fair prices."
Cons: "We boarded, then were told to exit after sitting for close to 40 minutes on the jetway with NO AC. It was close to 2 hours until a flight could take us to SFO. It ruined my plans and I will be requesting a full refund from Alaska."
Cons: "Was told to go to international terminal but flight was leaving from terminal 2. I even called the reservation line to confirm. As a result, I Parked at the wrong terminal and added 30 mins to travel time!"

Cons: "Couldn't get pre check on my boarding pass despite multiple attempts"
Pros: "On time flight. Pilot did great."
Cons: "Drunk men seated on each side of me that were loud and disruptive and cursed the whole 3 hour flight. They were even readily supplied more alcohol by the flight attendant twice which was really in poor taste considering how rude and clearly drunk they already were. They never should have been allowed to fly because their behavior was disruptive before we even left the gate in Palm Springs. Drunk people should not be allowed to fly if they cannot be quiet and certainly should not be allowed to purchase more alcohol once on board."
Pros: "Friendly staff, free WiFi."
Pros: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "Smooth flight and service --easy boarding and pleasant and professional flight crew. Alaska is a fabulous airline. New plane with extra legroom (free until January!)."
Cons: "Gross coffee --get some Philz !"
Pros: "Staff on ground and on board were very pleasant and accomadating!"

Pros: "The crew were very accommodating as they were able to get me a wheel chair on short notice....thank you, thank you. The seat was not the best because the seat-back did not recline (we were seated in front of the EXIT row)....not good."

Pros: "Quiet flight. Great landing. Excellent staff on board"
Cons: "Aisle seat did not recline on my first flight"
Pros: "Gate agents wonderful - helped with a Passport issue and seating."
Cons: "Onboard flight attendant not happy with a seat change request (as recommended by gate agent) and then remained sullen (to me only) for duration of the flight. Childish."
Pros: "For some reason, we found ourselves in the Premium section for our return flight from Palm Springs. So we got fed!! Which was nice. And we had a little more legroom, “spare seat” between us, etc."
Cons: "It was a short flight, only 2 1/2 hours, so you can’t really expect much. It’s the long flights where service really makes a difference."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Friendly staff; A relatively painless check-in and boarding procedure; Flight arrived a bit earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "No power outlet at seat on 4+ hour flight meant dead phone on arrival when used for in-flight entertainment; Now have to pay extra for basic seat selection even after check-in opens at 24-hours prior to departure (I opted not to pay, and got literally the worst seat on the plane... back row, middle seat by the lavatory); Even the for-purchase snacks taste terrible."
Cons: "Seats were a very strange shape. They forced me to sit in a hunchback position the entire time. next to no leg room. A very tight uncomfortable space. The three hour flight was about the most I would have been able to handle. Worst seats I’ve seen in a while."
Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"
Cons: "The non-ability to change seats to unoccupied seats with early check-in, without paying a $35USD upcharge! Plus the cost of checking a bag at $30. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful stewardess. When they found out how stressful our day was with delays and being bumped around they offered us a free drink. Nothing crazy but it was kind of them."
Cons: "When our flights were delayed then changed we were left with no options other then being left with a 19 hr layover in Vancouver and missing the wedding. No apologies or vouchers offered. Air Canada gave $200 for a two hour delay to our friends, we were screwed over and offered nothing. So disappointed. We ended up flying to Vegas and renting a car and driving through the night to be on time. So sad!!"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "People were cramped in the plane, hardly any room for bags. People from other seats were packing their bags on top of other peoples stuff"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "Haven't taken it yet"
Cons: "Well I'm not on the plane yet cause you left.me stuck in Vancouver"
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"

Pros: "Boarded early and flight left ahead of schedule. Plane was clean and ample leg room in economy for a 6+ footer. Flight crew were amazing and friendly with a full flight. Will be watching for WestJet deals on all our vacations."

Cons: "Late take off late arrival"
Pros: "No hassles, friendly folks, on time and baggage wait ok"
Pros: "Short flight at a great price!"

Pros: "Newer plane so more leg room. Left on time."
Cons: "No inseat entertainment."
Cons: "We waited almost an hour to get our luggage"
Pros: "Plane was clean"

Pros: "Very friendly flight staff; the peal of laughter throughout the plane that ensued when the staff offered us the inflight magazine in our seat pocket as an alternative to the defunct entertainment system."

Cons: "Internet didn’t really work."
Pros: "The staff were friendly as they had to deal with many annoyed customers. I thought the staff handled the constant delays and cancellations well."
Cons: "My flight to Calgary never happened. In fact due to weather conditions, many, many flights were delayed, some cancelled. No more flights to Penticton, so I had to take a flight to Kelowna after 6:00pm or fly the next day. I met a couple to share a ride to Penticton once I reached Kelowna. My luggage was lost in Calgary and so I went on to Penticton, to Osoyoos. The next day, West Jet delivered my suitcase to me. I appreciate the voucher I was given to buy a few things and the promptness of my luggage. We live in Canada, the weather in the winter can be quite an annoyance and so it was last week."

Cons: "No entertainment center on plane"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "Flight was for the most part on time"
Cons: "Flight attendant was mean and nasty. She asked me to take my headphones off, to which I complied but shook my head as I took them off.

I don’t think I will travel WestJet ever again."

Cons: "We sat on the runway after we landed for over an hour and I missed my connecting flight. No one offered to help or apologized for the delay. No compensation was provided"
Cons: "We fly in 777 plane, but the crew member already occupied all of my overhead baggage space. I need to move two seat back for my bag. I am already the first passenger on board of the plane. That also cost the other passenger think I occupied their baggage space and be not too friendly with me during the trip. The notice board in the airport is confuse, we know the gate and the depart time, but no one show up until 120 min before the plane depart. And finally the plane delay and no information show the plane will delay for how long. Bad information in the counter My handle of the sit is broken I have photo to proof if you would need it, I save it with me. The lighting system in the plane is very stupid or may be the crew don't know how to operate, every time they just turn on all the light no matter we are sleep or not! This is a red eye flight passenger should have a choice to not get disturb, when the light on I need to turn it off every time! And the next passenger don't really know how to turn the light off that always on during the flight! Super bad flying experience. Not comfortable at all. Can't sleep much!"
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Cons: "No veg option in food menu"
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Pros: "The staff on the flights were very nice."
Cons: "I will never book through this airline again. My flight was delayed and no gate information was available to me. I had to ask several people where to go and was told several different answers. This resulted in a lot of excess walking with my luggage. The airport signs have tiny information for non Spanish speaking passengers. Never again."
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
Cons: "The fly was delayed for more then 30 minutes with no explanation,I paid for the Saturday rate and end flying on Sunday what I thing is not fear . Why I have to pay more? About the food we didn't receive a meal ,they give us only some peanut and cup of water since I am a diabetic person I need to eat frequently,"

Pros: "attention, service , time"
Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this airline!"

Pros: "All the airplane attendants were super helpful and friendly. And the complementary food and drinks were s delicious and refreshing, which is surprising for an airplane company."
Cons: "The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because in Mexico City due to the Mexican government we had to transfer our bags manually. Nothing due to Aeromexico's doing."
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Every time I fly out of Scranton I’m delayed horribly this time it was so bad I’m stuck in a hotel for the night."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating, personable and the communication was good."
Cons: "It's not really fair to blame the crew or the airline forother nature, but my biggest frustration with flying is that the flights always seem to get delayed for one reason or another."

Pros: "Empty flight, got whole row to myself, nice staff, on time, smooth travel."

Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The chairs are hard and no lumbar support"

UNACCEPTABLE"

Cons: "I am vegan. So I guess I am minority for now, but I hope some of the food in the futures also cater to those of us that don't eat any type of animal product. One only can hope!."
Cons: "My seat was considered "Premium." The pull out table was dirty and broken. Was not able to use it for eating or holding a drink. Food was inedible. Plane was old so there were a few screens for the whole cabin. The screen was poorly located so unable to watch programs offered."
Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable"
Pros: "Smooth flight, good crew, no other problems."
Cons: "Several video system restarts and my arm rest USB and audio jack randomly stopped working for the whole flight. Lots of people had no video screen working too. Food tasted good but had so many chemicals in it that I had digestive issues the whole flight from both meals."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "After everyone boarded they said they had a 2 hour delay and if you got off the plane your flight would be cancelled. After an hour of sitting on the plane they got everyone off so a different plane could board and take off and then everyone got back on the plane and continued to wait. We left 2.5 hours late and when we arrived at the destination the plane couldn't contact the tower?!?! So we waited another 30 mins...ridiculous, rude, and rather fly southwest"
Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"
Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."
Cons: "No tvs for a long international flight. No wifi. Come on, your competitors offer much more at the same price. Not flying BA again."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding agent was unpleasant. Crew was incompetent. Asked for Woodford Reserve. She gave us Jack Daniels. Asked for Gingerale. She Made an inappropriate comment as to why she was depleted of Gingerale. She offered it to us only after we pointed it out to her on her cart. Man in seat next to me did not get served a drink at all. Did not offer headphones. No wifi for 3/4 of trip."
Pros: "A good value. We were only going to nyc for 3 days so we only had carry on luggage which they courtesy loaded for us."
Cons: "Seats are narrow, hard and the tray table of the person traveling with me, was broken. Gave entertainment a o because there was none."
Pros: "Assigned seats"
Cons: "The flight was actually on their smaller airline I think Mesa. The plane was really small with no amenities."
Cons: "The only negative aspect of the three hopswas a couple of gate changes prior to boarding... one at Dallas and one at Charlotte and the could not have been much further apart, new gate from the original gate... but it made for a leg-stretcher during a long day of sitting"
Cons: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "A choice between pretzels and other snacks."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Pros: "Clean plane, nice staff"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Cons: "My seatmates and I were frozen for the whole flight, especially our feet - even with socks on."
Pros: "Free movies and TV shows through the United app"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "I was happy to be able to get a flight on a flight that offered free entertainment through the United Mobile app. I just don't understand why your airline doesn't offer free internet and entertainment. It seems like a small price to pay to keep your passengers comfortable. Get with the program and the rest of the industry."
Cons: "Once again, United first changed my flight which increased my layover from a little over an hour to three hours, and then our flight was delayed by three hours, making our total layover time over six hours. United does this more than any other major airline. I am actually considering switching my United Mileage plus credit account to one of your competitors."
Cons: "the wait time. Sitting on the tarmac for 20-25 minutes in PSP waiting for LAX reaffix to clear. The worst is arriving at LAX at 8;39AM which is earlier than anticipated and not getting a gate opened until 9:25AM (approx) sitting on the runway not being told what is going on and when the captain does make an announcement it is to tell us he apologizes for the delay but then proceeds to announce that he and the crew have to go back and to PSP and LAX four more times. I found that inappropriate to tell us about his work schedule when Im trying to get to the gate for my connecting flight"
Cons: "Very limited leg room, very expesive entertainment - even for flight information ($US4/hour), no need to follow TSA rules (number and size of carry-on, placing carry-on under the seat, storing bags in overhead close to where you sit, etc.)."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "Easy, fast service. Arrived early."
Cons: "Sweet snack wasn't as good as savory snacks in the past."
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "The fact that they over sell their flights but when you order them they say there are 3 seats left. So you show up to the airport and your flight lands with way more then enough time to get to work that day and younprint your ticket to find out you have no seat. That's because they sold more seats than they have incase someone didn't show up. But everyone did show up. So of course they find you another flight in LA which is a good 3+ hours away so you can spend another 3 hours to get to your gate to wait 2 more hours to go to take of so you can reach your destination making you late for work and making you call out. Just because they wanted to make sure every single seat was filled."
Pros: "Charging availability for my devices on board."
Cons: "No wifi available!"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Delayed leaving PSP. Delayed landing at SFO. THREE AND A HALF HOUR delay leaving SFO!!! FINALLY landed in RDD at 7:30 PM!!! Rental car counter CLOSED AT 5:30! STRANDED AT AIRPORT TIL AFTER 9 PM, when hotel shuttle could come get me! Missed seeing my mother, who is in a Skilled Nursing Facility here -- THE ENTIRE REASON FOR MY TRIP! And now I can't see her this morning either, because I have to take the hotel shuttle BACK TO THE AIRPORT to pick up the rental car that I PAID IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE BEGINNING YESTERDAY!!!"
Cons: "Flight got delay and we went back to hotel and get back to airport delayed again. I wish they could of tell earlier so we could do something better than waiting 5 hours in the airport. They were really rude when we try to talk to them Steven was the person"
Pros: "Nice seat space (upgraded) Good flying into Chicago"
Cons: "Our plane and seats were changed by United (originally thru SFO) and we ended up in front of the exit rows so seats did not recline. The crew announced that this was not a full flight but asked that and movement await all boarding. I waited until airborne and moved into the empty seat in back of me. It actually was comparable to my own but I remained now that I moved. Several hours into the flight a male attendent told me I had to return to my original seat. No explanation. This did not present a hardship but very unnecessary and possibly risky not to have manpower in the emergency row."
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat even when I checked in (flight was overbooked)so I felt a lot of stress that I wouldn't get a seat on the flight I had booked a few weeks prior. I called United and they could not guarantee that I would definitely have a seat."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "That I made it alive"
Cons: "That the seats were very small and the person next to me could not fit into their seat"
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "Gate attendant came and told us that our luggage made the close connection. Less than 30 min."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Would like more food options"
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."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Big delay due to weather but flight was good"
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: "Isle seat as empty but when i asked to move they told me i would have to pay over $100 and we were ready to take off so no one ever used the seat and i was smushed by the window the whole time."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "United did very little to accommodate our cancelation"
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: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "No help to reroute."
Pros: "comfortable seating."
Cons: "Having to pay for one piece of luggage Plus on small plane announcement should be made to watch heads when getting out of seat. I got up from window seat and smacked my head hard on overhead bulkhead. Got a big sore bump from that."
Pros: "ease of into airport"
Cons: "Nothing in.patticular"
