Cons: "This is the second time in 3 flights with Alaska that they’ve bumped my seat at boarding time from a nice aisle near the front to a window near the restrooms. I’d gladly have volunteered if asked, but they didn’t ask. This most recent flight, the beverage service was extremely slow - it took nearly an hour for them to get down to my relocated seat. By then, it was nearly time to land, so I barely had time to finish. I’ve noticed the cups are smaller now as well. I usually fly rather than drive for the holidays, I think I’m done with flying."

In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third.

Cons: "long lines through security"

Pros: "I love Delta. Smooth boarding. Quality service. Keep it up!"

Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "COURTESY"

Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."

Cons: "50 minute wait for a gate to deplane. How could there not be a gate at 10:30 pm? It’s not like our arrival was a surprise!?"

Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."

Cons: "Delays sucked."

Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"

Pros: "The free movie"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"

Pros: "No"

Cons: "Never made it"

Pros: "entertaining system"

Cons: "very little service"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"

Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty goid"

Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Cons: "Holding pattern over Dallas for 45 minutes."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Cons: "Bad smell"

Pros: "The flight attendants were smiling & seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. Quick flight, on time, for a good value."
Cons: "The United app does not support my phone, so no entertainment for me. It was a short flight & I use audio books, so no big deal. I imagine other Samsung owners are less than happy. Is there a glich in the link? Does it send android users to Mac platforms?"

Pros: "I think give better instructions"
Cons: "Never I have experience like this in my trips. They canceled the flight they were not helpful in what to do The assistant wasn’t helpful just answering to some people, I don’t think I will let have another experience like these because even I wound suggest this company. Las Time the we’re dela 9 hours my husband was so tired."

Cons: "Being so late"

Pros: "Leg space. Comfortable."

Pros: "It was a new plane ...but the same old rules..."

Cons: "Plane was hot no air and super uncomfortable"

Cons: "Had to circle 3 time before landing due to air traffic."

Pros: "Arriving to my destination is what I liked about this experience."
Cons: "The flight crew was rude, walking through the aisle acting bossy, not courteous. I've flown united in the past and not had issues but on both united flights this trip, highly disappointed in the experience. The commercial ads blasting in my face without the option to turn down the volume is insulting."

Pros: "The sunrise"
Cons: "I was on the wrong side of the plane!"

Pros: "I got to fly with friends. It was a short enough flight."
Cons: "You have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The tv screen's controls look over a decade old. I hate watching nothing but advertisements so i can buy into United's overpriced entertainment. The plane itself looked and felt ancient. I couldnt sleep to save my life. And the pilots voice was non existent."

Pros: "The exit isles were comfortable"
Cons: "No free food service and the menu was unappealing and extraordinarily overprice! The bathroom was dirty and toilet unflusable...garbage can overflowing and dirty paper towels everywhere !"

Pros: "Nothing, please..."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."

Pros: "Everything from check in to breakfast to boarding was smooth and effortless at PDX. The restaurants are layed out in a smart configuration with plenty of options on either side of security. The staff are friendly and the travelers in the airport are generally personable and in a good mood, which is a stark contrast to the majority of the nation's airports."

Cons: "I had a exit seat...but paying for a seat is totally bogus!!"

Cons: "Horrible line at bag drop. A representative told everyone to combine lines, and then suddenly opened up a new line allowing people to pass by or skip the entire line. Very frustrating."
