"No individual TV screens. So you must have a device like an iPad or a phone or a laptop to connect to their media service. Movie selection was mediocre at best. A lot of useless programming in my opinion. Also had a first, was asked to put my mask on between sips of a drink. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that! We ate out every meal for a week straight and no one asked us wants to mask up between bites or sips. Nor did other Alaska flights ask us to mask up between sips. Thought it was pretty ridiculous."

"I missed a connection due to a 4 hour maintenance delay. The worst part is that I can't even attempt to rebook the flight because there is no way to contact Iberia. The desks were closed because there were no more flights that day. They never answer the help line or facebook. I simply cannot, in any way, even get ahold of a person to help me rebook this flight that cost 1000 dollars and was ruined by the fault of the airline. So I am stranded in LA right now, frantically trying to get ahold of anyone from Iberia to help me get to Spain."

"The food definitely could be better the flight attendant nicer, then Lisbon to Paris the had the nerves to charge for snacks. Lisbon customers service at the airport for the most part terrible, upiddy, rude,. I waited at lease 2 or more in custom lane trying to get throught security, miss my flight to Paris it was hot, to cheap to give customers AC while you wait in long lines. The worst experience avoid Lison Portugal, they charge for a rapid covid test 275.00 when I had a CDC shot record I've had both my shots rip off. And lost my luggage."

"Thank you for giving us new planes and plenty of storage space."

Cons: "Refundable tickets"

Pros: "The flight wasn't full which is always nice and they served full size cans which is also a nice little note."
Cons: "The plane was pretty old and people just started sitting wherever. It was chaos as my wife and I sat in our assigned seating and just watched people wander like animals."

Pros: "Easy boarding. No issues."

Cons: "Better business class seating, better food and in seat entertainment as it isn’t enjoyable watching movies on an iPhone."

Pros: "Comfortable seat and free drink"
Cons: "Probably if they offer few snack like a chip or nuts."

Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "Crew, efficiency, movie/show options"
Cons: "No alcohol, food options (vegan), tv screens in seats"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"

Pros: "Seats comfy, plenty of room as there was an open seat next to us."
Cons: "Nicer, friendlier staff. Alaska airlines staff doesn’t even compare to the nice staff on Delta flights!"

Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines!"

Cons: "I never received the flight. It did not exist. I had to buy another ticket."

Pros: "Ok crew, not the best planes and service but good enough to get from A to B. Was I happy with the flight? No, will I use them again? If the price is right for sure."
Cons: "Friendlier crew and better service"

Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was clean and updated, the in-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "On both of my Alaska Airlines flights we took off later than scheduled, by over 15 minutes. It could have been due to the congestion at LAX. And the seats were comfortable if not a little cramped. I also wish we would have been offered adult beverages on my late flight into SFO -- helps for sleep."

Cons: "Luggage space issue could have been handled prior to flight not on a volunteer basis."

Cons: "My bag arrived with a huge gob of grease on it which ruined my shirt It also appeared to have been run over or dragged which damaged the strap and plastic buckle The bag also now has a hole in it The baggage service personnel were very friendly and accommodating"

Pros: "The crew at Alaska is top tier! They are always the friendliest, on the phone or in person. I was stuck in the Seattle snow storm and they were so helpful with flight changes"
Cons: "There was no tv on the plane and no complimentary snack/drink"

Pros: "Nice new plane with good entertainment."

Cons: "My experience: Animal Abuse during boarding, cancellation of flights every single time I’ve booked flights, horrible mess with customer service, just don’t care about people..."

Cons: "Changed gates twice, boarded late, sat ont he runway, waited for a gate on arrival and then waited for baorrding ramp."

Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."

Cons: "My luggage did not arrive. We were asked to volunteer to check any carryons we did not need to take into the cabin. I volunteered and my luggage did not arrive. I had thousands of dollars worth of items. Submitted a claim."

Pros: "All staff were professional and efficient. I liked how fast it was getting my bag checked."
Cons: "Didn't care for the net pockets on seat in front of me, my stuff fell out. Guy next to me was really rude and kept bumping me and talking really loud."

Pros: "Everything!!!! Especially The Flight Attendant Staff. And For The Price, From Departing From JFK-NYC To LAX-Los Angeles Is Fantastic!!!! I Would Definitely Recommend This Airline To Anyone Who Wants "Great Service" At A "Great Price";-D!!!!"

Pros: "The assistance by the San Jose CR Alaska office re; my misplaced carry on and their super help in the return exchange of backpacks"
Cons: "Meal on board charges"

Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."

Cons: "Had to deplane cause your pilot exceeded his flying hours. Can be easily avoided if you have better management and not cutting things so close."

Pros: "...but I upgraded to premium and it’s got more offerings than other airlines, like alcoholic drinks, but..."
Cons: "1. Flight delays. My fam flew a week ago with a 2 hour delay so this may be par for the course. 2. WiFi was out. If you’re gonna try to differentiate yourself then make sure that differentiating factor works flawlessly. 3. Seat wouldn’t recline. In Premium seating, which people choose for better comfort, make sure they can get it."

Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."

Pros: "Plane clean, boarding efficient, pilot cordial, flight confortable, arrived early despite delayed departure."
Cons: "Because video playback system was inoperable (not an issue for me—I am happy to read during the flight) the young crew had to perform safety announcements manually but were obviously ill-practiced and inexperienced at this, bungling their reading and even seeming not fully to understand the words. (They also botched announcing introductions of the pilot and crew, not seeming confident who was on board or as if they in fact knew their names.) This was of course unprofessional but also introduced doubt how reliable they would be in an actual emergency."

Cons: "Asked Flight Attendant for help she gave an attitude with a hissing sound pointed at the directed I need to go."

Pros: "I liked watching the fact that I was able to finish a movie that i began on a previous Alaska flight. I’m trying to reach towards MVP, so I was unfortunately disappointed in other aspects."
Cons: "Well other than the fact that the flight was delayed by two hours, I was given incorrect info. When I asked the staff member at the gate about what group I was boarding with, he told me to line up with the first group only to be asked to turn around when I reached the front. Also my seat did not recline back and it wasn’t a seat up against a wall. I’m leaving the plane with a sore neck."

Pros: "A little confused they gave us a virgin America plane but having a movie selection at our disposal and drinks it was excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was 30 min behind, then after boarding it took a while to take off and then when landing it took a while to de plane. Probably not Alaska’s fault"

Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."

Cons: "I fell and broke my collarbone, called to change my ticket and no one would help me. Terrible customer service."

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "I thought I had reserved an aisle seat but I was in the middle when I boarded."

Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"

Pros: "Flight attendants, good service goodies , On time flight and smooth flight !! I been using Alaska for many years and is one of the best airlines ... even to book my flights"
Cons: "No words"

Cons: "You gave my flight away and I was still there 20 min before my flight!"

Pros: "Love everything!"
Cons: "The only issue I had was that we were delayed about 40 minutes after being in the plane because the pilots weren't there and the AC wasn't working yet so we were roasting while waiting for them to arrive. The attendants were very apologetic and kind though, passing out water and helping guests be as comfortable as possible. The only issue I've ever come across with this airline and it was still handled with kindness and efficiency, so DONT let this discourage you, Alaska is great!!!"

Pros: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"

Pros: "The person next to my wife was snoring for three and half hours and spilled coffee on her, besides that it was OK. I have had way better from your Alaska Airlines ..."
Cons: "I just told you..."

Pros: "Free hour of wifi as a T-mobile customer. The ability to change seats right up to the moment of boarding. It was my first flight ever and The Captain and crew did a great job to make the flight enjoyable and comfortable."
Cons: "As someone who has meticulously traveled the world over on Google Earth, i was enthralled to finally get to do it in real life. I was looking to bring up a GPs trackers or some kind of map application so i knew where i was flying over. I couldn't gain any access to any type of application due to GPS restrictions. This might be a rule for plane rides that i'm not aware of however."

Cons: "Lost my biggest piece of luggage and they ripped another one , absolutely ridiculous !"

Cons: "I carry photo equipment in a carry on bag because of expense, damage control and temperature control. Unfortunately I can not leave it for baggage people to handle (although I would love to.) When I got my carry on to the greeting flight attendant I explained I had just finished a shoot and I was sorry that I needed to keep the bag as carry on. Flight Attendant: there was nothing she could do and I needed to go back down the stairs, even though people were still boarding and leave it with the baggage people. Me: "In the past the flight attendant put the bag in that closet." (I pointed to the locked closet where they keep their bags.) Flight Attendant: I cant open it because it's locked. Me: "The key is kept there." (I pointed to where the key is kept. I know because I've done this trip so many times before.) Flight Attendant: "See if it will fit under your seat." It did... but I had my knees in my chin for the entire flight. Thanks, Ann"

Pros: "the crew was very attentive , i liked that they board the back of the plane first"
Cons: "my in flight internet services didnt work at all and the food options were awful . we need a little more leg and aisle room"

"Couldn’t have done anything better."

"The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!"

"Don’t seat 500lb people on regular seats. Miserable flight and will be asking for a refund. Horrendous sat on the floor half the flight"

Pros: "The crew and the quick boarding"
Cons: "There still needs to be more room in the cabin and comfort plus. And not only just for leg room but also arm room"

Pros: "Crew was very efficient"

Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "Gate team at PHX departure was a bit short and delayed the flight by over 40 minutes while offloading passengers from the previous flight. Also boarded most of the flight before they boarded the Comfort+ area. If I would have known that, I would not have paid for the upgrade."

"The flight back from Cabo was excellent however the flight from LAX was terrible. I was happy by accident to get to LAX 4 hours,early. It took almost all 4 hours. I dont think I will fly with Delta out of LAX anytime soon."

Pros: "Nothing, I'm tired of the changing policies every time i fly with no heads up from the airline"
Cons: "Consistency, customer service, customer service, customer service"

Pros: "Sitting in the exit row"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Headphone availability"

Cons: "Enforcing covid restrictions"

Pros: "Middle seats not booked. Cabin very clean, bathrooms kept tidy throughout trip. Very friendly crew. Appreciated cold drinks and selection of snacks,"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Mask enforcement"

Cons: "The plane change in LA was confusing & not very clear."

Cons: "No good on flight Crew don’t have any idea what day are doing on the flight Way the WiFi don’t work I don’t know"

Cons: "The snacks were good, but they should have offered some drink selections."

Cons: "No leg room on this plane"

Cons: "Customer service, the app defies the laws of physics, it blows and sucks at the same time, and email says expect a reply in 3 weeks. United thanks you Delta, they just gained 2 new customers!"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Nos trataron con mucha seguridad de higiene y nos sentimos muy seguras de viajar con ustedes muchas gracias"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Crew were great, loved having spare seats....Just a very welcoming flight."
Cons: "My screen on the Nashville to LA wouldn't let me watch the movie I wanted too but everything else was great. Glad they were there to get me home to Australia when other airlines weren't!"

Cons: "More cushion in exit row seats."

Pros: "Never went on the flight."
Cons: "Awful customer service"

Pros: "I appreciate the care Delta has for their passengers during this pandemic. From the seat spacing to the boarding process great measures were taken."

Pros: "The crew really was amazing. Friendly. Communicative."

Cons: "It was a 4+ hr flight, so some food would have been good. Could have given protein shakes or something."

Pros: "Seat was average"

Cons: "Zero PPE or social distancing by crew"

Cons: "Felt unsafe. Guy with guns and how delta employees handled it blew my mind!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and appreciate gate agent's enforcement of the two personal bags per person."

Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "Everything. Can it please leave on time for once"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "N/A. No food was served due to turbulence which is uncontrollable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."

Pros: "I, as a tall man, was allowed to move into an exit row with no additional charge. The flights were not full."

Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"

Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."

Pros: "I am on stand by after 24 hours. Because delta airlines was late.im stuck in LA"

Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."

Cons: "It was cold"

Pros: "Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "Food and food."

Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."

Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Poor service Poor air craft space The is my worst cattle transport Shame on Delta"

Pros: "Nothing to like about this leg"
Cons: "The cramped real cramped space, shame on the US Poor service Delta should be ashamed of itself for this kind of poor cattle transport"

Cons: "Connection flight from LAX to Seattle was dropped off of booking completely. When Delta was able to fix the changes in Sydney Australia they put my husbands ticket as a standby instead of putting him in an assigned seat and reported that they couldn't fix it that we would have to wait and get to LAX before the changes could be made again. There was a one and a half hour flight delay from LAX to Seattle. From Sydney Australia to LAX entertainment system didn't work the whole entire flight, they were screaming children the entire flight, and Delta had double booked seats on several different people. There were no apologies and no compensation for any of the incidences."

Pros: "I loved the service provided by the flight attendants as as well as the gate attendant who poked, prodded and did what he could to ensure our already late flight took off before it got stuck waiting for a gate at LAX. Thanks to him and the work of the crew, not only did the flight leave ASAP, our flight arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that the monitor for my seat was on the fritz and inoperable, which became a huge issue because of what follows. Making matters exponentially worse was the roughly 30-minute delay we experienced when we landed. Although our flight arrived at LAX early - in spite of the late departure from SLC - we were left waiting for a gate and were forced to wait for a gate. Inexplicably, the AC was turned off and the passengers all began to virtually cook while stuck in our seats. Also, due to another asinine snafu (the grounds crew didn't push a flight far out enough and blocked our plane along with eight others, which delayed our flight further. Adding insult to injury, my baggage was over 30 minutes late, too."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast"
Cons: "Seats were cramped"

Pros: "The crew was professional and efficient. This includes the ground personnel that had to cope with a grossly overbooked flight. I was upgraded to comfort+ at the gate."
Cons: "Fed up with the .4 oz pretzels. The arrival in LAX was chaotic. We had left on-time and were told that we would arrive approx. 20 minutes early. Ha! First landing attempt had to be aborted, the landing not being cleared by the control tower. Then we cruised, circling over the Ocean, and the lights of the city again. Finally we landed. Taxiing on the tarmac was interrupted many times, and took overall 30 minutes. The pilot kept informing us. I was probably not the only passenger that had and urgent need to reach a bathroom... Of course, Delta should not be blamed"

Cons: "The attendants on this flight were gossiping right behind us and we heard them talk about ignoring calls from people during our wait on the tarmac at LAX. Again we were in the last seats in the plane and this time it was stinky."

Cons: "No more plastic cups in first class - and offer packaged nuts."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was also dirty and I had to whipe down my own area"

Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "extremely racist crew made flight uncomfortable for everyone."

Cons: "Maybe some water"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean and new."

Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "The flight was packed full despite the ongoing pandemic. I will avoid flying American Airlines at all costs in the future. I was disgusted with how many people were jammed into this plane. The woman next to me was sniffling. I was so uncomfortable the entire time."

Pros: "Unlike other AA planes, the plane that flew this particular route was at least updated with seat-back screens."
Cons: "Unfriendly service. A sandwich wrapped in plastic wrap is an absolutely horrible excuse for first class meal service."

Cons: "More sanitation efforts. Stop overselling flight to help stop the spread of COVID-19"

Cons: "Flight was rerouted to another airport due to poor weather at Philly. 3 hours later we arrived at Philly, but I missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Ended up with a row to myself since flight wasn't full and people were able to move to different seats to provide for social distancing."

Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "They could start by not allowing a non-compliant passenger ON THE PLANE. When he was already not compliant in the damn terminal. (Dude didn’t wanna wear a mask) forced the captain to circle back and screw our timing for our connecting flight. You might say, how can we blame AA, well, because they chose to allow him to become a problem and then exasperated it by allowing him in the damn door of the plane. Now we got stuck in Charlotte for the night. Nothing like being late for your Grandma’s funeral. Pathetic AA! PATHETIC!"

Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "More spacing with the whole Covid-19 thing going on"

Cons: "Lots of turbulence, but well-handled by the pilot. All lights in cabin were left on from takeoff to cruising, which made two infants cry that entire hour."

Cons: "Food options that arent flour carbs or flour carbs."

Cons: "After booking about 6 months ago we got seated inBACK ROW against the wall. Couldn’t seat recline over 3 inches and right next to bathroom. Why can’t you give these seats to passengers that fly STANDBY"

Pros: "I got there in one piece."
Cons: "More legroom"

Pros: "The seat was comfy, even though the flight was delayed in takeoff by 45 min. It was nice to hear from the captain. It makes you feel more like you're having a good experience."
Cons: "Delays happen. But snacks offered during a delay known to be longer than 30 min would've made many passengers happier. It's hard to stay happy when other people around you are complaining."

Cons: "The 2 hour delay."

Pros: "Flight, Plane, and Customer Service was incredible. There was a woman at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Michelle, who saved my bacon in a crazy change of flights. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!!"
Cons: "American Airlines texted me at 6 AM saying that my 10 AM flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked for a flight that DEPARTED at 7:35 AM. I was and am livid. Thank goodness everyone at the airport did an incredible job and I made the flight, but what a terrible way to start the trip to Tahiti. I will be using American as a last and final option from now on. Changing flights last minute like that, especially when making an international connection, is hateful. Never again."

Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."

Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."

Pros: "Staff was fantastic"

Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."

Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese foods"

Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally  9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty good on the flight. That is my only positive experience."
Cons: "The seats were incredible jam-packed together. We had a 9 1/2 hour flight from Tokyo and could not even sit without our knees touching the seat in front of us. My tray table couldn't even properly extend -- the seats are so tight my tray just folded up on top of me. The food was BAD. 1/3 edible out of each course, consistently. I saw other passengers also dumping untouched trays of mystery meat that came as a side. They handed out egg-tomato-cucumber sandwiches which were inedible. The tomato had gone bad and the egg had a sour taste -- I gagged when I took the first bite. I'm especially disappointed with the seat spacing, though. I had a really difficult time getting in/out of the seating aisle to use the restroom. Even with our bags stored under the seat, I couldn't get in without tripping on/getting my foot caught in the strap of our purses/backpack. I couldn't even turn on one side without my arms or legs touching the passenger next to me -- sore neck, sore back, and still couldn't even get a wink of sleep. I will not be flying internationally with American Airlines again. They are the epitome of an airline trying to cash in on as many seats as possible. Save yourself the trouble and fly Japan Airlines directly -- their food was great and their seats were very comfortable."

Pros: "Always prefer American air over most other airlines do the service of staff. Thanks for the extra effort."

Pros: "nothing horrible flight"
Cons: "This was almost a six hour flight there were no televisions available the flight was oversold and there were people on standby there was very little Lego room we were only offered snacks and drinks the crew was stressed we left late because we were instructed to check our carry-ons but that was not enforced until people were already on the plane getting on the plane and getting off the plane took a very long time there was very little leg room it was difficult to move around the plane because it was such a small plane the crew was very stressed out. I am very upset about this flight and will not fly with American ever again."

Pros: "The only reason I was able to make this flight was that it, too, was delayed. We received ZERO notification - as we were running from one plane to another from Concourse A to B - that the Phoenix-LA flight was delayed. I mean how difficult is that to do?"
Cons: "We took off. We landed. We didn't crash. We sat on the runway for nearly an hour. So much fun!"

Cons: "Hot on plane."

Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"

Cons: "On the last leg from Abu Dhabi to A'bad, upon boarding the plane, my wife requested the stuardess that she could not order the Vege food online for some strange reasons and that if they can provide it to her, she bluntly refused and said if it wasn't ordered earlier she won't get it. She could have easily said that she will see what can be done. No need to be that rude for a reputable airline staff."

Cons: "Waited an hour in the plane after we landed at lax to get off the plane."

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "My flight was great! Pilot did an amazing smooth landing"

Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"

Cons: "Long flight for a short distance. Slow getting people on and off. Delayed on arrival getting to gate and then delays getting people off. Baggage took a long time."

Pros: "The crew and boarding"
Cons: "That the WiFi wasn't free"

Pros: "I love hoe comfortable the seats are! And the staff was very friendly and helping!"
Cons: "I didnt have a problem with anything. I enjoyed my flight and will be flying again with this airline!"

Pros: "comfortable seating"

Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"

Cons: "Crew was grumpy and tired! No energy. Plane was hot no AC when we boarded."

Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Nothing stood out"

Pros: "Old plane, smelly and dirty, spent twenty minutes on each Tarmac waiting. We felt like a bunch of losers."

Cons: "No entertainment on the flight at all."

Pros: "I'm grateful for Kayak's policy of fully refunding tickets purchased and not used within 24 hours. Were it not for Kayak, I'd be out my money for a flight I couldn't take."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket to attend my cousin's funeral. Sadly, the flight was delayed so far beyond its original departure that I missed his funeral and could not take the flight."

Pros: "The pilot was very helpful And his crew extremely nice to me with much patients thank god for that crew"
Cons: "I never was looking forward to not having the help I solely deserved when in dallis as I needed help with my wheel Cheer there was no help available to me so I had to do everything completely alone as the pilot and his crew helped me out of the Aircraft entering into Chicago I thank god for that crew I fliy often however this was so unreal what I had to indure when headed back home to Scottsdale' AZ after visiting my husband in Columbus Ohio perhaps I'll find another airline to use hopefully ii will get the help I truly need"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everything happened as planed"
Cons: "Covid testing and requirements was stressful"

Cons: "On board Mask enforcement - was not done. The video controller buttons were on the arm rest. This presented a challenge to actually USE the arm rest for myself and my seat mates - we were constantly and inadvertently turning the monitor on."

Cons: "On time yes. Every seat sold. Overhead baggage full had to check luggage. Dinner time flight no food. No beer."

Cons: "Terrible process for check-in. Unable to check in online for basic economy. If issue is with a bag then have customer take picture of carryon"

Pros: "Entertainment movies"
Cons: "Never will I fly on them Again! No protective measures in regard to Covid! Terrible!"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "Everything! Jam packed flight. and no Covid measures taken. Aweful!!! I will Never fly on them Again! Shame on the Airline!"

Cons: "Social distancing in the seating, the flight was booked every seat."

Pros: "The was helpful and friendly and was able to take care of problems."
Cons: "Notifying me when a flight was being canceled before getting to the airport not where. You are supposed to be boarding the plane."

Cons: "Many other travelers were not wearing their masks and the flight was completely packed."

Pros: "Flight smooth. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Cons: "The 5 hour flight was extremely full. No chance of social distancing. Did not feel safe for my family."

Pros: "Great airline. Easy flight."
Cons: "Nothing, I love flying United."

Pros: "That the flight wasn't any longer than it was"
Cons: "A bit hot n stuffy"

Pros: "the flight attendants were a breath of fresh air. truly great client service, genuinely friendly. every person working at the airport that i encountered on my way to my flight was rude, disassociated, and honestly seemed to enjoy being petty while at their job. the moment i arrived onto the plane, the male flight attendant that greeted me was so kind, made sure i was okay, and was a source of much needed sincerety during the entire experience, as were the rest of the crew. thank you thank you."

Pros: "Nothing, and I’m a very agreeable person.... Always"
Cons: "Every person employed by United is either overworked until the point of jadedness is issued with their first paycheck, or they get paid in Monopoly money. There were flight delays, and really I was good with that, but when I approached a staff member, he literally said “what do you want?!” Before I even opened my mouth. The phone lines are operated by someone in a foreign country. And after the flight caused me an overnight layover, they offer you a measly discount voucher for a place to stay. I can only hope that someone out there is getting better treatment than the poor people I saw on this flight, or at any united desk I attempted to get help from."

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Pros: "We got earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "There is no food to offer unless you pay for it when you are asked. I got a bag of chips that isually goes for 1.99 at the store but they sell it for 4.99. They only give you 2 cookies and a drink for a 5 hour flight. The entertaiment was not present for 98% of the flight even when it says that wifi is available and to choose the movies or shows from their website. There's no disclaimer saying wifi does not work over the sea which was thru almost the entire flight. When you could finally connect to it, it wouldn't load. Most airplanes have an entertainment system in the back of the seat even for less than 3 hour flights but not on this one. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Ease of boarding. Friendly and tolerant staff. Good seating for an economy short flight. Smooth flight, professional pilots."
Cons: "Having to check my carry-on at the gate. Tooooooo many children...Consider adult only flights!!!!! Tooooooo many overweight, ill mannered, bourgeoisie passengers....Consider better social screening of passengers. Hurried beverage service on a short flight....people don't need to eat and drink every 58 minutes."

Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"

Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."

Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "Well no movie screens, and when you get on the plane they say there is internet movies, but you need to download the ultimate app for United to have it work!! The internet was so slow I could not download on my iPhone 7 Plus with 256 gigabytes and well No Movie!!!! It is the first time that I have not watched or played something in maybe 40yrs!! Also I asked for a seat that would recline and they gave me the only seats that do not because the emergency exit was behind!! The had no sandwiches or salads, they only had chips, crackers, etc"

Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Pros: "The desk people were nice in Phoenix, AZ"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 6 hours so United rebooked the whole flight, however they made no attempt to inform us before we arrived at the airport. We found out when we arrived to our gate to board. So because we did not know about the delay until the time of boarding, we missed all other flights out because it was 8pm and no more flights could take us to our final destination. We did receive a hotel voucher but we had to pay for a taxi back to the airport as well as we had to pay extra for our car that had been sitting in the airport garage overnight. It should have been $2.50, but because it sat in the garage overnight we had to pay $20."

Cons: "Decent"

Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."

Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"

Cons: "We're all aware of the national "glitch" the delayed flights a couple of hours. While our plane was available for an on-time departure (UA1976) @11:35, the crew was inbound on one of the delayed flights (UA1611). United could have known as early as 7:30pm that 1611 wasn't going to make it on time to turn around the crew and would hold up 1976 as a result. Instead United didn't update passengers of 1976 until 11:55 (20 minutes after it was obvious that it was delayed and 4.5 hours after they could have known). Maybe I'm missing something, would love for someone at United to explain it."

Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I was told it was due to "weather issues", and that i'd more than likely miss my flight, and that there was nothing they could do about it. I ask the guy to print me some sort of itinerary to show my work, and it shows "mechanicall issues", not weather. Confirmed this with their website. I was told I'd probably be arriving in Seattle around 1-1:30AM. By pure chance, my flight from San Fran to Seattle was ALSO delayed (due to a late incoming flight), so I was able to board my original connecting flight. However, this still put me in a bad situation. I use public transportation, which wont be running by the time I arrive. LooKS like I'll be forking out $50+ for an Uber or Lyft home. Thanks, United. I only ever get delays when I fly United."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled!!!"

Pros: "On board shows were good."
Cons: "Flight left about 3-3.5 hours late. Add that to the time you have to show up early to the airport and I could've been almost home in my car. We were boarded and left to sit for a long time then the pilot came on saying the mechanic needed more time to look at the tire which might need to be changed. After another 15-20 min sitting, pilot comes on and says we need to get off the plane so the maintenance could be done. Ok I'd rather fly safe than be on time but really? Why doesn't this airline have enough planes that the maintenance can be done when the plane isn't scheduled to fly? So many people missed connections and we ended up getting home so much later than we had expected! Honestly I would rather the airline have emailed saying flight delayed 3 hours so I could have had more time in SF rather than sitting in an airport eating a mediocre airport meal for dinner. They had to have known the tire was almost to the point of changing right? I mean I would hope it's checked each flight. Just all together inconvenient. Like they book all theses flights to make money and yet if they had fewer but didn't make anyone waste the day or night at the airport so they could perform routine maintenance it may be worth an extra few bucks in my book. My time is valuable too, and I don't think I was the only one on the flight who thought so. Maybe United doesn't value anyone else's time other than theirs. Guess this is why we have several airlines to choose from and we will not likely fly United again."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The terminal number on my ticket was wrong and when me and some other customers asked the flight lady what was going on she was of very little help. Not only that but she was making a personal phone call. So I had to rush to the other end and then just to find out that they didn't have enough room to put my carry on so I had to place it enbetween my legs which made for an even more uncomfortable flight. Also one of the flight attendant was particularly rude and kept saying she had to do her job in a very rude tone to the point were an older retired man told her he's worked too hard in his life time to be talked to like that. Overall the poorest plane experience I've ever had and I fly quite a bit."

Pros: "They definitely had more viewing choices in their entertainment than anyone could watch."
Cons: "The two big complaints are the food which was quite pathetic for a 14 hour flight - half of a cold sandwich and one cookie!!! Really?? They need to fly their competition and see how it should be done! The biggest complaint of all is their slight of hand baggage charges. If they're going to partner with another airline, they need some communication and agreement about pricing and allowances. Even though we are United Club members and credit card holders, we were charged nearly $400 to bring our luggage home, after paying just $30., yes, thirty, on Air New Zealand to take two extra bags! United's own overseas policy allows two bags, but they charged us anyway on return because we came on an airline that only allows one even though we paid ANZ to bring extra. Extremely illogical."

Cons: "We were connecting to this flight after flying in from Rome. Initially we were scheduled for an 8:30pm flight, but after landing early asked if we could change to an earlier flight. They graciously bumped us up to a 7:30pm flight, which trimmed our 4-hour layover down to 3pm. Cut to 6:15pm...we find out that the flight is not delayed AN HOUR due to a "late inbound flight." Long story short, the 7:30pm flight ended up departed later than the 8:30pm flight we were originally scheduled on so we didn't get to LA until after we were originally supposed to!!"

Cons: "Our flight arrived at LAX 20 minutes early so expected to get my connecting flight on time. Boy was I wrong, we sat inside the plane on the runway for over an hour. It was getting hot inside and people were getting upset about missing their connecting flights. We went around in circles on the runway, about 3 times. As people were getting agitated, so was the stewardess. Also people had to use the restroom, and the stewardess kept asking people to stay in there seats and she begin to lose her cool. What do you expect when your on the runway for over an hour. When people got to go, they got to go. So after finally arriving at the gate, "late" United did get me on another flight thru Alaska which was great. Will I fly United again, hmm I'm sure I will, One bad experience won't scratch them off my list, but I will choose other airlines first and United will be my last resort."

Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."

Pros: "Efficient crew, friendly service,"
Cons: "Delayed flight both ways. Free program wasn't watchable on my device because I didn't have their app downloaded."

Pros: "Great entertainment system with lots of selections. Electrical outlets and USB port also great amenities but mine didn't work on the return flight."
Cons: "I am a small person and found the legroom to be inadequate. I paid $50 to upgrade the seats to economy plus to give us a bit more space but it wasn't any better. For a long, overseas flight, more space is needed. I had more legroom on my domestic flight with United. Also, the airline attendants for Air NZ were unpleasant and downright grumpy at times. It made a long, uncomfortable flight seem a whole lot longer. Attendants on my United Airlines leg was phenomenally more professional. Makes for a much happier passenger. Plane temperature was freezing on the return flight to LAX and oppressive on the flight from LAX to Auckland."

Pros: "refund"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Airplane was damaged and united wouldn't rebook us until the flight was officially cancelled hours later. Then United provided only one service person to address all of the passengers needs so we had to stand in line for a couple hours longer. Then they had no hotel rooms to put anybody up for the night that couldn't get a flight until the next day. Then they gave us a measly $10 food voucher. Then our luggage was mishandled has still has not shown up to my house. Then because of the change in flights I had to rearrange transportation home at 1130 pm that cost me an extra $125. A very miserable day because of United's lack of being proactive and poor decision making given the situation and circumstances."

Cons: "Tooooo small"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "had a 1 hour lay over at LAX. I travel with a Service Dog. I had taken him out to the doggie poddy area. I came back in and had to have my Boarding Pass checked. They informed me that I would need to have my Boarding pass stamped for my dog. It took them 20 minutes to take care of it, by now I was running short on time to get to my flight. As I went through Security, I saw the TSA agent remove my laptop from the bin on the conveyer belt. I saw him lower it to the floor (I thought he was putting it in my bag). It wasn't until I got to Abq. that I realized my computer wasn't in my bag. I have contacted United, TSA, and LAX police. None of them have done a thing."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."

Pros: "The food actually was good, entertainment option were good."
Cons: "I encountered some of the worst staff ever on this flight. I was skipped over and completely ignored during more than once. I even told the guy I wanted water with ice when he asked me and then he starting socializing with others and skipped me. When I brought it to his attention he got all pissy with me. The other crew man was older and made me very uncomfortable. He was yelling at people constantly and made it very clear that he hates his job. This was the coldest flight I've even been on. Literally everyone was wrapped in their blankets and it still wasn't enough. The staff was told several times but refused to do anything. The guy in front of me had his seat row 39 middle left fully reclined back for the whole flight. Not once did anyone tell him to put it up during takeoff and meal times. He kept rocking the seat and spilled my drink in my lap."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed coming in from Oslo, so boarding was pushed back due to customs clearance of the plane. TVs weren't working properly and needed to reboot before take off. Then while viewing movies, there was constant skipping throughout the flight. Then after landing, we sat on the runway for over 40 minutes waiting for a gate. Leg room not great. Overhead compartments were too small for the average rolling carry on so I was forced to check my bag at the gate, and then deal with baggage claim at LAX."

Pros: "I got a super cheap fare for this short flight from PHX to LAX. Staff was courteous and the flight went smoothly from start to finish."
Cons: "Was unable to figure out the free entertainment offered. Was a short flight so I didn't really worry about it."

Pros: "Brought us safe to Hawaii and back home home."
Cons: "My brother accidentally left his passport, ring and chain inside the plain which was very expensive and he called after he noticed he didn't have it with him. He left it inside of the pocket holder of the seat on the plain where the magazine are. He called and was told nothing was there. On our way back home, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours behinds. At no moment did the co pilot excused himself nor did he apologized for the the delay. We deserved at least a free meal or some kind of compensation. Instead, the pilot and flight attendants just told us to rich it because we had to leave to L.A! We (8) family members came and this includes an elderly person (my mother who has been fighting cancer for about 2 years, along with diabetes) came to see her grandaughter get married. Now they were rushing her as well? Uncalled for. Now my other brother and his family which was a party of 10 on another flight, also flew to Hawaii. Now that alone tells you how much money was spent. The stay in Hawaii was amazing! We would visit again but the way we were treated on this airline, I don't think we would fly again and choose this airline. To be honest, not even recommend it. I'm ashamed to let others know such as friends and co workers know of this airline's service. To top it off one flight attendant was very rude! She saw us when she handed the other passengers pretzels and skipped my mother, my sister and I. I asked her nicely if we may have some and told her she had skipped us. She said, "I did?" Came back with 6 bags of thenm and was like, "Here!" Like shoving them to me. I felt humiliated! I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarrass her. But it was extremely rude!!! I read some reviews and I guess it's normal on your end to be the way you treat your customers. We even asked before abording from Hawaii to L.A, what can you do to make up for all this and we were told, "nothing could". So ashamed."

Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"

Pros: "Everything was fine in anorak sense."
Cons: "Extremely turbulent and the landing was very bumpy and scary. Very windy conditions caused this but it was still a little frightening"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. Flights departed on time. Flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Arrival: Both flights arrived on time, BUT the plane remained on the runway for extended periods to await a gate. I know delays happen, but to wait on two out of two fights isn't a good average... Seats: I'm very small, and was very glad in these seats. I found the seats quite uncomfortable because they don't recline at all! Food/Beverage: Nothing is provided - not even water. Baggage Check: When making reservations, $30/bag to check didn't seem too bad. However, when pre-registering my luggage, in order to receive the $30/bag rate, I would have needed to spend $50 additional for a membership. I don't fly enough to make that worthwhile."

Pros: "Efficient service, spacious plane"

Cons: "Unprepared"

Pros: "Pleasant personnel, very comfortable spacious seats, lots of leg room"

Pros: "The price"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever! Have booked 3 flights and somehow it has either gotten cancelled or some other issue. The worst is their customer service representatives. They're not willing to help, will give you half info and I even got wrong info from a manager. And after all the bag fees they're not even the cheapest flights. I will never fly with them and will save myself the trouble in the future."

Pros: "Cheap flight"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Fees for all check-in and carry-ons Fees for water onboard Seats uncomfortable A warning before booking through kayak."

Pros: "I like that everything was bare minimum."

Pros: "Super easy, friendly and very comfortable!! I upgraded to the BIG seats"
Cons: "What is there not to like!!!"

Cons: "HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!! HORRIBLE !!!"

Pros: "The crew was funny and made my flight go fast."
Cons: "A lot. Spirit does not accept cash for your drinks. What place doesn't accept cash??? Also on the link to the website that gives info about how many bags your allowed to check-in it said 2 and 1 carry-on. I flew to L.A. for work so I had some tools in my check-in bag. They charged me $130 for checking in 2 bags. I showed them the Web page and she told me it has not been updated. I was upset. The checking of the bags cost me more than my flight. Both bags did not exceed 30 lbs. I'm flying Southwest from now on."

Pros: "However they gave FULL refund and a voucher. Much appreciated."

Pros: "Plenty of room on plane. Clean plane."
Cons: "1hr delay when landed. 2hrs for a1hr flight :-( Bud light beer only! Whatta!? Really? Charging for everything! Seats, bags, a drink and a snack! Tried to "save money" flying Spirit... Ended up saving only 20% vs southwest and that 20% was def not worth the aggravation,delay, and lack of any real customer service. All we heard was "sorry for the inconvenience" from the pilot on the intercom lol.. Did not seem authentic. Truly disappointed as a consumer. Will not fly Spirit again even if it were free. I'd rather drive."

Pros: "The "seemingly low price" was very low, and is what sucked me in in the first place."
Cons: "The fact that my baggage cost more to ship them than the price of the ticket in the first place was a huge surprise. That will not happen again! The seats are cramped and comfortable only for a flight lasting less than 90 minutes. If your flight time is longer, be ready for a very sore bottom."

Pros: "Early arrival. Cheap."
Cons: "No customer service to speak of"

Pros: "I liked the flight attendants - the flight was delayed by an hour but they were very quick with the turnaround."

Pros: "i lost my fly because this is not a serious company. the worst ever."

Pros: "It was quick and easy to board. I was surprised at the amount of people that got in, in such a short."
Cons: "That I had to pau for my carry on."

Pros: "At the end the stewardess announces over the PDA: About that bumpy landing, it was not the pilot's fault. Heck it was not even my fault. It was the asphalt. Good one!"
Cons: "1. Boarding was late both ways because they were "looking" for an aircraft: translate: poor management. 2. Only one lavatory and they say since it is a short flight, use the facility in the airport! 3. Total lack of transparency in price when booking. All the bells and whistles scream after the fact. I will never use Spirit again."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Spirit will charge you extra for almost anything imaginable. There is no free carry on luggage except a small personal item. No free printing of boarding passes at the airport. Prepare to be nickel and dimed for anything extra. Spirit fares are ok but other airlines can offer fares just as cheap or even cheaper if you are flexible with the date and time. None of the Spirit planes I've ever been on have charging outlets or entertainment screens which are becoming standard comforts on most other airlines. Not to mention, Spirit gave me hassle for using an e-boarding pass. Really, Spirit? All other major airlines accept electronic boarding passes via mobile phone. Requiring printed boarding passes is so outdated. I would choose any other airline than Spirit if at all possible."

Cons: "Didn't like the 3 hour delay due to a "staff" issue. Then to hear the flight crew talking to each other about another pilot getting kicked off planes because of his alcohol problem."

Pros: "Great rate!"
Cons: "No free soda lol"

Cons: "Yet another delayed flight with Spirit..."

Cons: "This is not abnormal for Phoenix airport to have flights delayed a little ridiculous! Figure it out fix it that's what you are supposed to do!"

Pros: "Plane had good to excellent leg room. Flight crew gave good service."
Cons: "Plane was half full, but still charged extra $20.00 in each direction for my wife and I to sit together. Just ridiculous. Also Spirit airlines posted flight delay so my wife decided to eat while waiting. Later we heard a last call for flight. So delay had been taken off and passengers loaded without announcements.only announcement was last call and my wife and I running to get to gate. Lousy shifty service."

Pros: "I loved that it was clean, on time, and the flight crew was nice and very hilarious! Made it very fun!"

Pros: "Efficient and cost effective, if you can pack light. Very light."
Cons: "Insane amount of nickel and diming. Would have been nice to have a heads up about all the extra charges."

Pros: "Fast and simple boarding. Great crew"
Cons: "Took an hour to get a gate. No room for my legs."

Cons: "I made a mistake with selecting carry on I got charge 50 dollars for carry on and no one can fix it and refund my money"

Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time"
Cons: "You have to pay for soda, but the fare is great, luggage has to fit underneath the seat in front of you, my original flight was cancelled due to lack of crew."

Pros: "Not a single thing"
Cons: "Everything about this airline was bargain bin trash. The website is horrible, the seats are awful, the flight crew couldn't care less, and the prices are insane. $36 to carry on, $42 to check a bag? I guess I'm the only one who travels with extra clothes and shoes. The cheap fair isn't cheap at all after the fees, and the customer service is non-existent. I used this airline to save $100, didn't even end up saving money and the experience is horrible."

Cons: "We are LIVID that flight was canceled and we're not contacted until we went through security! My husband is handicapped and you have no idea what a nightmare it became because we had 3 connecting flights from PHX to OGG (Hawaii)! Then you have the stupidity to send out this survey for s flight that never existed! We will never fly Spirit again and we are cancelling both of our credit cards because we never want anything to do with Spirit....the phone agent said to go to any ticket agent and they would comp amd reschedule our flight with another airline. Ticket agent refused! The Maui trip we saved 40 years for to celebrate our 40th anniversary was totally ruined! Patricia A Carlini Carlinip114@gmail.con"

Cons: "Second leg of the Flight cancelled ten minutes before board with no warning -- I incidentally checked the flight status online where I found out. Full refund was given, but the staff was generally unhelpful to other passengers who could not immediately book another flight. Would not book with Spirit again."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Fees were exceptionally high for a bag. Flight was delayed due to a computer issue with the newest fleet of planes?? Then due to the delay we had to wait another 30 minutes to get to our gate. What a mistake this was."

Pros: "My seat was comfortable"
Cons: "1) Flight delayed by 45 minutes 2) The people behind me were very loud and the flight attendent did not ask them to lower their voices even though it was midnight. 3) We had to wait on the plane for almost 40 minutes when we landed for them to prepare a gate and the air was turned off so it got very warm on the plane"

Pros: "Professional service, clean and comfortable plans, smooth flying experience, helpful crew members and good overall cost for flights."
Cons: "That I haven't flown with them sooner."

Pros: "Lots of leg room, friendly crew, and very cheap!"
Cons: "Boarding process like every other airline boards inside seats to window seats. This means everyone that boards first needs to stand back up to let other passengers get to their seats. My flight was delayed but the crew was very professional about handling the situation."

Pros: "Flight was 2 hours plus late. Stager was not even around to explain it. Nothing on board no drinks snacks or wifi."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad website. Old dirty grimy airplane. Diversion while boarding the plane. Horrible experience."

Pros: "I loved that I could get a cheap plane ticket last minute (two weeks out) staff seamed nice and the boarding is fast."
Cons: "Nothing really, make sure to be super early because they lock the doors 20min before hand and I did miss my flight ha!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Horrible service. Thank god for Southwest"

Cons: "No WATER!! The least mercy you can show a person is to give him water. If you cant even provide a glass of water without charging, you're not worth serving."

Pros: "The service was very easy to use, loved it."

Pros: "The service person at the counter. She was very nice! The plane was big enough to fit my bag without a problem."

Cons: "boarding crew very bad attitude regarding checking bags"

Pros: "Low cost ticket"
Cons: "Higher cost of checked bag than other commercial airlines. Higher cost of normal sized carry-on bag where other commercial airlines are free. Different high charges of baggage purchases from ticket purchase, before online check-in, counter check-in and at gate which could be surprises for many non season travelers as well as online travel agents do not seems to provide enough info and alerts of the different charges of baggages, etc. Also charges for at the counter check-in is an absolute no no for travelers who may not be internet or computer literate."

Cons: "My flight for May 1st to depart at 9:40 flight NK623 was canceled and I never got a refund. To add to the trama of not knowing how to get home, the people that were supposed to board us, were rude, uncommunicative and really did not care. They acted as if our being upset was giving them a headache. If anyone reads this, please prove it by giving me back my money that I never received service for, but insults instead. Thank you."

Pros: "$45 Phoenix to LAX. Can't go wrong. My carry on easily met the requirements for the free bag. If you're going away for more than a long weekend probably makes more sense to fly another airline."
