Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "great flight - easy and quick as always"
Cons: "the power on the plane didn't work and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "We upgraded to Delta Comfort, since the flight was a bit longer. I'm glad we did; it made a great deal of difference to have the extra space. The in-flight entertainment (individual displays on the backs of each seat) was excellent, the crew was excellent, and the flight was extremely smooth."
Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit backwards. They board by zones with the front of the plane going first, so if you're in the back you get stuck in the aisles waiting for these people to sit down. They should board the back of the plane first."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."
Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."
Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."
Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Pros: "Very nice, comfortable plane, everything went smoothly in spite of our little airport being overrun with eclipse tourists."
Cons: "We paid extra to be able to pick our seat ahead of time but when we got there we were told that in the first leg of our trip the flight was oversold and therefore we didn't have seat assignments anymore. The delta folks blamed Kayak. We did get seat together, but not the ones I had previously chosen. Also there was no beverage service on this flight."
Pros: "How can airlines help screaming children?"
Cons: "Screaming child on plane for 30 minutes have me a headache- perhaps flight attendants could offer something like coloring books or stickers to help in the future. When I got too baggage claim the baggage claim not listed. Ticket agents declined to help, so I was walking all over try g to find which claim area to go to which was frustrating."
Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"
Cons: "One lavatory didn't work and we had to use the nathroom for first class..couldnt access bathroom half of the flight"
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "your seating is ridiculous, to the point of dangerous! People could never get out of the seat rows let alone the isles. I will seriously avoid flying Delta again as there is no concern for safety or comfort. It is obvious they are more concerned with money than costumer service!"
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "I would never fly Delta again! What you have done to the leg room, seating reminds of living in a third world country!"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and available."
Pros: "Transfer from SAT flight. Bathrooms clean. Short walk to new gate. Food or snacks available. Plug in for phone available. Boarding staff friendly. Plenty of overhead. On time. Service inflight friendly and prompt. Baggage prompt and pickup by family with no problem. Staff helpful and friendly. Crew efficient despite full plane. On time."
Cons: "Seats with no power. Boring and predictable snacks."
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."
Pros: "Delta gave me a free rum. It helped. We arrived on time. Thank you."
Cons: "I am not sure why, but this was one of the most chaotic boardings I have ever witnessed in all my years of flying. 5 hours in a middle seat that did not recline. Need I say more? Cold tasteless chicken sandwich a a stale muffin for breakfast."
Pros: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Cons: "I was starving because of my short connection time and couldn't have lunch - wanted to eat something solid and they just had boxes with fruits and cheese."
Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Cons: "Unkindness of gate agent"
Cons: "So so food. Terrible delay leaving Beijing. Gatemoccupied in SEA."
Cons: "Had trouble with entertainment console are 36d"
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient 2. Carry on bags were mandatorily checked at the gate when there was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Time and service were excellent."
Cons: "Food. I don’t mía be to pay"
Pros: "I wi not use aeromexico again"
Cons: "Everything, see prior notes"
Pros: "The seat was super confortable"
Cons: "Need water"
Cons: "Was not allowed to board the plane, this causing me to miss my flight."
Pros: "Were able to fly first class. Enjoyed VIP lounge, and the spacious seats on the plane"
Cons: "Due to a computer auto correct mistake, I had to buy another ticket because Aeromexico would not change the name on the original ticket....3 tickets for 2 people. They did however move us up to first class for the long flight which was appreciated."
Pros: "We were given 100 different excuses for our overnight delay and processing all the passengers took much too long."
Cons: "Tell the truth and be prepared to resolve it quickly. We waited on the plane for more than an hour and then again in the airport to get our new tickets and vouchers that no restaurant would accept."
Cons: "I have nothing to complaint about Aeromexico is truly a good airline, friendly and. Has good customer service. We were very satisfied with our flight. Thank you"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Getting seat assignments at front desk was confusing and a little hectic"
Cons: "So late all the time"
Cons: "Will not travel with this airline again"
Cons: "The boarding unfortunately the Quito airport it’s too small"
Pros: "One of the meal options was vegetarian. When I asked the flight attendant about it (I’d forgotten to request a veggie meal) they mentioned there was an extra vegetarian meal and got me that instead, which was even cooler."
Cons: "My screen didn’t work / worked erratically. Luckily there was nobody in the middle seat next to me and I could use that one."
Cons: "No access to video No leg room"
Pros: "The food, space and movies!"
Pros: "Service was good! Didn’t have problem"
Cons: "Flight was on time nothing to say went bad"
Cons: "Check in took more than 1.5 hrs. Traveling with two kids an a baby is challenging enough and adding all sorts of incompetente and lack of help makes traveling a nightmare Also crew allocated seating all in diferentes rows which is not acceptable when traveling with small kids. Once we went to the boarding gate we forgot a piece luggage and we ask Assistance after boarding still at the gate and crew told us they could not do anything as they are user of gate space not the owners #WTH"
Pros: "We think the upgrade to AM Plus was worth it."
Cons: "Crew not attentive. Announcements in English were almost impossible to hear - need to be louder. Video screens were very limited: no games to play, no instructions on how to use it, and map of route was inflexible."
Pros: "Very friendly staff/crew, sufficient leg room even in a regular seat. Hot meal."
Cons: "Zero entertainment options available - the computer screens didn’t work at all, no movies, music, map. Also no functioning WiFi as advertised (on either flight) and the machine would only barely and intermittently charge my phone."
Pros: "Both international flights to and from Mexico City were exceptional. The staff was very nice and the plane was very comfortable. I will choose them again next time I fly to Mexico."
Pros: "I had plenty of leg room."
Pros: "I like that I and my luggage arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Flight Delays: It happens, BUT every flight, but 1 was severely delayed leaving, arriving, and then departing again. The only flight that left and arrived on time was Guatemala to Mexico City. Mis information from Flight Crew: Aero Mexico flight crew put everyone in a panic on flight from LAX to MEX and Guatemala to MEX by saying that everyone had to pick up their luggarge.. even if you were just in transit to another country. Once I went down and asked Information, they stated that I did not need to pick up my bags as they would in fact be transportated to my final destination. When I told AeroMexico about this.. they didn’t seem to care that they were saying something completely different to everyone on their planes. In the future I will avoid booking with Aero Mexico.. I felt vulnerable and that Mexico didn’t have its clients in their best interest. Additionally, their lack of WiFi is embarrassingly cheap of them. Guatemala has free wifi, I assumed everywhere provides wifi for its visitors. Mexico supposedly gives you 5 min free and they don’t make that easy to access."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "A long story short, I had to check my carry-on bag in order to get sealed duty free liquor through the Mexico city airport. I was able to eventually get the bag checked gratis due to the circumstances. It took half a dozen AeroMexico staff to get there, but I did."
Cons: "Flight was too hot, like they forgot to turn the AC on"
Cons: "El vuelo es helado. Es tarde en la noche y sin mantas!"
Pros: "Aeromexico was very accommodating even though I was late, got great seat and even food!"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Part of my poor experience was because of lack of knowledge of the staff. 1) We had a round trip from Houston. Our destination was Quito Ecuador with a connection in Mexico city. In Houston we were told that we were suppose to pick up our luggage in Mexico City and take it through immigration (we were told that this was very important) We waited for our luggage but in never arrived. After asking around at the airport we were told that the rule had changed and we did not need to pick up our luggage 2) The planes were old with no entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was great. It was a red eye so only snacks and drinks were served but they were sufficient. The flight had plenty of room"
Cons: "There was nothing about the flight that I didn’t enjoy"
Pros: "Having a direct flight from Mexico City at a great price with excellent service, what's not to like about it!"
Pros: "The crew is great, and the comfort of the airplane was outstanding!! Really happy with the whole experience."
Pros: "Aeromexico’s staff went above and beyond to provide a world class experience. I highly recommend giving Aeromexico your business. Five stars all the way!"
Cons: "I loved the First Class upgrade for being a frequent flyer."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "They offer food and entertainment its good. Also is amazing to flight none stop to Mexico City"
Cons: "Getting to Mexico or leaving Mexico is a hassle if you are in a wheelchair. They have a really poor service, I really struggle since I was flying by myself."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good, everyone was profesional"
Cons: "The waiting time when boarding"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food"
Pros: "Good service, decent meals. Good to very good beverage service."
Cons: "Changing planes in Mexico requires immigration, screen hassles,. I will fly direct to US next time. Terminal info was very poor. Delayed second flight had no gate info until last minute."
Pros: "I like everything about, food was good, entertainment was good crew was good. They give you free beer or wine"
Pros: "Everything went fine. The on-board entertainment was good."
Pros: "Nothing they cancelled my connecting flight"
Cons: "First time flying with Aeromexico and it will be my last. The cancelled the flight just when we are about to board and have not responded or compensated me for my substitute flight to get home."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, it was awesome!!"
Cons: "Amazing flight"
Cons: "It was a horrible flight because the plane did not land in Mexico city due to fog. The plane was about 600 feet from the ground and then diverted to Acapulo. We sat on the plane for 3 hours then waited in line for an additional 4 hours to get another flight. Then when we got to Mexico city, our next flight was canceled after boarding the plane. Again their excuse was due to weather. All other airlines were landing and taking off just fine. Aeromexico did not compensate us and we ended up spending the night in the airport. We will never fly Aeromexico again!"
Pros: "Most everything was fine, on time, nice crew, good entertainment..."
Cons: "Avoid this food like the plague, disgusting."
Pros: "The crew it’s the best"
Pros: "The comfort level on Aeromexico's planes to Mexico City and beyond is beyond belief, in this age of shrinking passenger space. In an ordinary ("back of the bus") seat in coach there was more than ample legroom for a more-than-six-footer, and row 28 has two windows to look out at the scenery aft of the wings. And food was even provided at no extra charge! In this situation there certainly was no need to purchase at an additional cost whatever Aeromexico calls its "premium economy" seating."
Cons: "The entertainment system is limited --- there are no games on the seat-back installed machinery. In addition, the earphones provided are only ear-buds, which don't work well in my ears. (I prefer the miniature headphones other airlines provide.) The volume controls were also poorly scaled. The lowest three levels of volume weren't enough to even hear a single sound, the next level up was a little soft or quiet and the highest level far to loud to preserve a listener's hearing."
Pros: "Again, the seating is more than adequate. I discovered a person who couldn't read her ticket stub correctly had taken my seat, but instead of insisting that she move, I asked if I could have an emergency exit row seat and was told "Yes," I could. I had to whole row to myself. Those seats, while as comfortable as the rest, made the screen mounted on the back of the seat ahead of me a little hard to see because of the greater than usual distance between the seats. But there certainly was a lot of legroom!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was an aspect not totally in Aeromexico's control - the disembarkation system and the ugly process of Mexican immigration. The plane was left parked on the tarmac somewhere in nowhere'sville, making a trip to the terminal by bus necessary. The bus waited and waited and waited for a wheelchair to arrive from the main terminal to allow two elderly passengers to be removed from the plane. All in all that process took more than a half-hour (making the two-hour connection time more anxiety producing). Then the bus sat outside the terminal for another 10 minutes with no explanation being provided to the passengers worried about making their connection. To top it off, once the bus doors opened the passengers were ushered into a large hall filled with hundreds of passengers all having to get through Mexican immigration - during lunch hour or something, for there were only six officials actually asking questions and several empty inquiry windows that could have been operational. I finally got to an immigration clerk just 15 minutes before my connecting flight was to take off - breezed through the interview and got the passport stamped, and then had to run to dump the luggage onto another conveyor belt leading I hoped to the connecting flight. An Aeromexico staff person asked me "Seattle?" and when I answered "YES!" was ushered to a waiting electric golf cart that whisked me close to the ramp to Gate 57. Without that additional help I'd never had made the flight. Mexico City is NOT a place to try to do a plane connection in less than 3 hours!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. They kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "I expected more from the in-flight entertainment on a 6 hour flight. If I had known I would have brought my own tablet and watched the free in-flight movies that were offered via free Wi-Fi."
Cons: "Flight left early on top of us arriving in Philadelphia late. Hadw the staff been more helpful we would've made the connecting flight. This occurred to multiple people on our flight from Rome."
Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"
Pros: "Food, cleanliness"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "There’s nothing better than a non-stop."
Cons: "Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!"
Pros: "seemed more comfortable on this plane, still squishy."
Cons: "really.. a 6 hour flight with just a cookie.."
Cons: "it was not BA flight American Airlines. For a 6-hour cross-country flight, there was no entertainment of any kind. More than that, no blanket or a pillow was available which made the trip so much worse. Worst of all, the last 90 minutes of the flight all the toilets ran out of water so they can't even be flushed. First time I have ever come across such a problem. Absolutely terrible."
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "Had good bathroom access and place to stand in the back galley so you could exercise and stretch as this was a connecting flight and I had been in the air a long time."
Cons: "The older woman stewardess was rude. I tried to give her my papers and she ignored me. So I put them in the pocket and the man next to me saw what happened and she responded to him. Curt. The plane is old and no individual TV. The food choices were very limited. I felt like cattle rather than a relaxing flight. Flying use to be fun and exciting and part of a great trip. Now it is endured to get on a trip."
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "I loved how sweet the crew was. I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "The seat was completely uncomfortable. My feet are swollen and my back hurts still."
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Pros: "The young woman running the admirals club front desk was excellent Friday July 29"
Pros: "Crew was apologetic"
Cons: "No automated safety briefing after 2 hour delay at gate due to congestion at seatac."
Pros: "The standard seating had good leg room."
Cons: "The seat didn't have enough padding for a 5 hour flight, I don't think I'll take another long flight on an A320."
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was luxurious and comfortable, even in coach. Great flight."
Cons: "They must have switched my gate four or five times and delayed my flight a whole hour"
Cons: "Flight was about 20 mins late"
Cons: "Out of certain food items that should have been available"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendlier than on the earlier flight"
Cons: "That I had to pay so much for an upgraded seat which I needed due to recent shoulder surgery."
Cons: "There was no flight entertainment for a cross country flight! The only option was to stream via my personally device. This would have been fine if there were outlets to charge personal devices at each set!"
Cons: "Very conjusted seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed twice. We got to Seattle three hours later than we were supposed to."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and efficient. Personal entertainment provided on every seat back."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if airline would start boarding passengers seated in the rear of the plane first."
Pros: "Quick and easy commute from desert to PNW"
Cons: "My seat was right next to the toilet. On this red eye flight it was terrible trying to sleep but randomly having a bright light on my face because someone opened the bathroom door. This is terrible design."
Cons: "United, along with American, is a horrible carrier, and the next time it files for bankruptcy, needed to be allowed to remain our of business. The employees don't care about service at all, it's no longer part of their culture."
Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."
Cons: "Flight was already scheduled to get in late--around midnight. Didn't get in until ~2 am."
Pros: "I would suggest upgrading to a bigger seat for this 4.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...excellent choices in entertainment...and I appreciate the perk of Preferred Boarding in group 2."
Cons: "We had to deplane 2X for maintenance issues. It was frustrating because it caused a 3-hour delay...however, we do appreciate the safety aspect and would rather be safe than sorry. You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix."
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Limited space."
Pros: "it was very comfortable"
Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "Booked on kayak, assigned a middle seat with a lap infant (ridiculous!) There were no aisle or window seats available but gate agent was able to move us to a bulkhead so at least we had enough leg room to accommodate us both. Thank you United, but thumbs down to auto seat assignments."
Pros: "I would like to have a movie for free"
Pros: "The seats were perfect, a lot of leg room. Comfortable side pillows on the seats"
Cons: "All the rest including the absence of food"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, another oversold United flight. I was forced to gate check my carry-on by the time my group boarded, though there was plenty of overhead space once I was on the plane."
Pros: "Crew helped make the best out of out nearly 2 hour weather delayed flight."
Cons: "SFO to SEA is always prone to weather delays. Wish United would fly more from SJC."
Pros: "Lining up in groups"
Pros: "Large plane very comfortable"
Pros: "The check in was very easy. The staff was friendly."
Pros: "Though a little expensive the snack boxes had a good selection of items."
Cons: "There were no complementary movies or tv shows or even music."
Pros: "Nice big plane and great staff"
Cons: "45 minute delay"
Pros: "Crew was a little more enthusiastic. There was wifi on the flight. I fell asleep for half of the ride, so we had a smooth ride for the most part."
Cons: "Asian style snacks need a little help. I was assigned to a middle seat again and my back started aching from the seats. Just little things though."
Pros: "I just missed my flight by a few minutes. The crew was very helpful for booking me in the next flight."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. United took care of my hotel when mechanical issues caused a missed connection. I really appreciate them taking care of that."
Cons: "Mechanical problems resulted in a 3 hr delay. When I inquired about Overnight accommodations, the flights delay had been incorrectly listed as a weather delay... I worry it might be common practice to incorrectly list the cause of delay to improve their stats. This could also cause a problem for people on the landing side when they need accommodations... luckily, a CSR got to the bottom of the discreptancy for me."
Cons: "Delays caused missed connections in not directions and terrible rerouting plus lost luggage"
Cons: "I was seated next to a morbidly obese man that smelled of feces so bad people many seats away had to cover their noses, overflowed his seat, taking up half of mine, and was watching disgusting pornography on his phone for half the flight, not that I was looking, but it was a bit hard to not notice, he wasn't trying to hide it. The power outlet under my seat did not work, so my phone died, and my armrest(left) was missing it's headphone jack so I couldn't use the in-flight entertainment, not that it would have mattered anyway, the fat man beside me was so huge, his fat covered my armrest so I had no access to the remote. The guy on my right, in the window seat, while not fat, wasn't small either and hogged two armrests, leaving me with none. I had to hold my seatback with my left hand the entire flight because there was nowhere to put my left arm without either holding it straight out in front of me, or laying them on the fat mans stomach which was folded over the armrest to my left. At one point I called a flight attendant and asked if they had any kind of a pillow or something to help my situation because the position I was forced to sit in was horribly uncomfortable and did not support my back, she looked at me confused, said they have nothing like that, and immediately vanished without any suggestion of a seat change or anything, just confused stare and then bolted away. All in all a pretty traumatizing experience, worst flight of my life."
Pros: "The crew and staff were patient with so many situations out of their control. The Huston maintenance are on top of their game."
Cons: "1st plane was taken out of commission because there were loose/missing rivets from panels 2nd plane was taken out of commission because hot air was was coming through the vents and causing sensors to go off 3rd plane was taken put of commission because there was issues with cabin pressure. 4th plane had a row of oxygen masks down. The flight was delayed until a tech could come in and service it. The flight was further delayed because there was a missing receptacle in one of the lavatories."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed. Missed our connecting flight. Ruined my plans and trip"
Cons: "Seats, no signs indicating to dl app b4 flight. No charging station to charge personal devices if using to watch entertainment on a long flight"
Pros: "The seating was way to tight, the leg room cramped absolutely most uncomfortable. It was over booked and people were left behind. It was also very bumpy ( I know not your fault) so therefore seatbelt lights were on for most of the flight"
Cons: "Most everything"
Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. There was stuff on the window, the tray table. I get you run a tight schedule but if I didn't have Purell and a Kleenex I would have been really disgusted with the food and coffee or pop splatters all over the window and tray table."
Cons: "All my flights were delayed due to weather in airports that were not a part of either my destination or point of origin. Not a single United employee apologized. There was no one to talk to on the 800 number, no one in the airport. No offers for any sort of vouchers or compensation was offered. The United website did my give accurate updates for when the flights would be rescheduled and there were two representatives in the airport to handle several hundred customers. When I finally did get on a flight, the flight attendants pushes the beverage cart right past my seat without offering anything. I asked one of them if I could have a cup of water and her reply was a very curt 'no'. Rude flight attendants on top of everything else? And the final straw came when a mechanical error delayed my flight home and I missed my ride from the airport and had to pay for an expensive cab ride. The airline representative I spoke to once we landed told me "you should be grateful you even got home. I don't care if you have to spend money on a can, you look like you can afford it." There are no words for how absolutely unacceptable your employees behaved, and how unaccountable and disorganized your airline is. I don't care if it costs me hundreds of dollars more, I will NEVER give your company another dollar."
Cons: "Everything. United is the worst everytime. I will never fly them again!!"
Pros: "The ticket agent boarded military service men and women with priority. For the delayed flight, free in-flight entertainment and wifi was offered."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off two hours. Once boarded we sat for an additional amount of time. The flight attendant offered the option for those that wanted to deplane at some point and when asked how much longer we would be sitting she said it was another 30 minutes waiting on 15 people."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Seats are small and cramped."
Pros: "Had a lot of leg room"
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat and the line to talk to the agents was long with only one guy and the he didn't help anyone til it was almost time to board. Probably one of the most stressful flights"
Pros: "Was in first class and food was good however I don't think the crew knew when to set the alcohol off to a few people"
Cons: "What I didn't like about the first class was the fact of the crew gave out a little bit too much alcohol to a few people and at which point they became belligerent and bumping into people and Isles just a little to satisfied with that and would hope that would change in future"
Cons: "Man at security made me check my bag even though it fit in the test structure. My suitcase handle was then ripped off and the fabric was ripped when I picked up at baggage claim. Additionally, another person on my flight had the same first and last name as me and we had been assigned the same seats. Luckily there was another seat but it was obviously a bit mistake on uniteds part. I really dislike united. Their employees are stressed, rude, and entitled. There's no need to say things like "hurry up" or make people check bags when they don't need to...I used to fly United a lot but I will now make every effort to not fly this airline again."
Cons: "Router tracker"
Pros: "Flight was excellent."
Cons: "Same as above. In the future I will be bringing my own snacks."
Pros: "I liked the distance between my seat the seat in front of me. Hands down, this is one of the most spacious planes to fly on in economy class. I also appreciated the attendant giving me the entire can of club soda rather than pouring it over ice. Staff was communicative, and the pilot provided us periodic updates on our speedy progress and early arrival. Cleanliness of the plane was also well appreciated. Even the bathroom towards the end of the flight was in satisfactory condition. Above all, I loved that there wasn't a television in my face the entire flight. Nice to have a break from seeing screens."
Cons: "There were signs on our tray tables indicating that charging stations were under our seats. They weren't working. Although the flight attendant came on the intercom with the pilot stating the charging happened in a wave around the cabin, this was a lie. Both my neighbors in my row had devices plugged in the entire 5+ hour flight and they didn't charge a bit. It's disappointing that a small half ounce bag of peanuts is too much of an expense for the airline nowadays. Given the amount of time in the air, I believe a full meal provided by the airline would have been closer to meeting basic needs of your average metabolism. United fell far from expectations on this aspect."
Cons: "I had a carry on but they said the over head compartments were too full. So they grabbed the bag from as I was boarding. They then lost my bag. Now United is refusing to send my bag even though it has been found by the airport lost and found police in a city that was not my destination."
Pros: "Overall flight N/A good"
Cons: "While the tv on the plane is something that I could see people enjoying, the controls are located right where an arm rest is resulting in flipping channels changing contrast and all other things I had no idea what was going on, as nobody passed that information."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was clean. Pilots provided rapid updates"
Cons: "Waiting to leave because of engine problems"
