Cons: "WiFi was on and off the entire trip"
Pros: "Seat was great. Nice they kept the Virgin size seating"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "On board entertainment"
Cons: "Delays galore"
Pros: "In seat entertainment. Great crew."
Cons: "An hour and 15 minutes late departing"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to non-working APU, had to wait for another gate due to late arrival. 8:25 scheduled arrival, now at a gate at 9:54."
Pros: "The individual checking folks in at RDU was extremely positive even after the flight had been delayed for hours. The flight crew was very positive as well."
Cons: "The plane had just been cleaned so smelled strange on arrival. It would have been better had we not been delayed for hour after hour, then delayed to get to a gate even once we landed."
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane"
Cons: "More varieties of snacks"
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "Smooth experience"
Cons: "Gogoinflight wifi can be erratic"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment system down."
Pros: "On time, not bumpy, new chocolate snack, clean, easy boarding -- you did it all!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Unremarkable customer service. Very 'blah.'"
Pros: "The Alaska crew were great even with a full aircraft and some rowdy kids. Everyone got along"
Cons: "No free snacks anymore, that’s a bummer."
Cons: "They can’t regulate temperatures in the front half of the plane. Don’t fly Alaska anymore."
Pros: "Crew was great. Gogo flight entertainment was very good. Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "I upgraded to row 6 because I thought it would be more comfortable. I have now learned that the seats in row 6 are narrower due to the tray having to be the flip up type housed in the arm rest. This makes the seat narrower and quite tight for sized large people. 5 hours is a long time to sit in an uncomfortable seat. It did not compensate for the slightly longer leg room."
Pros: "Staff go above and beyond to be friendly and they truly do have a serve with a smile attitude."
Pros: "I felt a great pleasure that there was a changing table in one of the bathrooms. This made things so much easier with a child. The staff was friendly for the most part and allowed us to stretch."
Cons: "The stewards dropped empty plastic cups on me three times and never once said sorry. It was kind of odd from a customer service aspect."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered."
Pros: "I love the service! Incredible flight attendants. On time take offs, early arrivals, so many entertainment options. Clean flight! Friendly service!"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Pros: "Flight good and luckily for passengers, not full so more space!! Bought hot meal, and was good ."
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."
Pros: "Little bit more leg room in the Premier seats. Not sure if it was worth the extra cost though-$69...little more legroom, kinda early boarding, a teeny, tiny snack box and free alcoholic drinks (drink service wasn’t speedy so you maybe got a chance for 2)."
Cons: "It was a long flight. No fault of the airline, just a long flight. The food is ridiculously overpriced so you should plan ahead for your own meals."
Pros: "The flight was great - The attendants were friendly with good customer service. However, the evening before my flight I called customer service and spoke with a customer service rep. Having never flown condor before I had questions with check in. The customer service rep online was rude - so rude that I had determined I would never fly condo again. However, the flight and the experience on board was great. The flight changed my mind and made me realize the customer service rep is one person. If you can track the call made I would recommend the that condo speak with this rep. He is a bad representation of condor airlines. I will fly condor again. The flight and attendants on flight were fantastic. To"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Leg room in premium"
Cons: "No free food or entertainment"
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful. There was a half way blind man sitting behind us and they made sure he had everything he needed the whole flight. I wish Alaska flew everywhere because I would never fly anything else."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "Flying from the East Coast to the West Coast can be painful, but the airline provided access to free movies & TV shows. The flight attendant making the announcements was entertaining and engaging. She was a good presenter, even when giving directions. The seats were also comfortable, and we each had a charging port at our seat. It was very convenient and thoughtful."
Cons: "The free coffee flavored biscuit/cookie was not particularly tasty and a little too dry. Maybe they should consider another cookie option or offer an alternative snack."
Pros: "I'm glad it was a short flight!"
Cons: "It was hot. Really, really hot. They were talking about taking us back to our destination, but that call, positive or negative, should have been made before the flight as we didn't have equipment failure post-boarding. The idea that we'd go back is ludicrous if we'd already pushed from the gate. Get it together, Alaska."
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Over all our trip was great. We had early boarding, the flight attendants we're very helpful. They checked to see if you needed anything thru the entire trip. The food was good. Both flights were on time."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great."
Pros: "I got there and home safely. Relatively smooth flight both ways. Liked the fact we were on time, or even early."
Cons: "Flying in general."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Cons: "Hour long wait on the tarmac at SJC was uncomfortable at best"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Pros: "Free texting! Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight was very warm"
Pros: "Everyone was incredibly friendly!!"
Cons: "Screaming 2 year old. No one can control that...."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and seemed happy."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline. We were moved to an over-wing exit, and the seats don't lay back there. In fact, it looked as though none of the seats in Economy could be reclined. This was an awful discovery on an over-night flight. The plane was a Boeing 737-900, which seemed like a new, clean and quiet piece of equipment, but Economy had Recaro seats that were fixed in the upright position. I'll try to avoid this in the future."
Cons: "Got to the gate about 20 min before flight. The gate attendant got a bad customer service attitude when I questioned why we couldn't board flight. We were a little late because our flight from Taipei was an hour late. She did schedule us at 6 am on another flight which made an interesting (painful) night with 3 boys under the age of 6. Nowhere did it state that boarding was closed 30 minutes prior to the flight. Bad experience - late night ...small kids... no food or drink available...surley gate person..no notice of the boarding policy...just a very bad experience."
Pros: "Pilot was always keeping everyone posted about time and turbulence"
Pros: "Fairly new plane"
Cons: "The two people next to me each had a loose chihuahua. The plane was full and there was no other seat available."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "They suspect the tail of the plane scraped the ground on take off. We hit severe turbulence just after take off that cause the plane to lose cabin pressure. We were routed right back to RDU. After a check of systems we were put back on the plane."
Cons: "There was not much of a vote of confidence that getting back in the plane was a good idea but just the best option at the time! They could have communicated better and more professionally."
Pros: "The Captain was skilled, made you feel comfortable. Kept us informed. From take off to landing all were smooth. Prefer Alaska Airline over all others."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."
Pros: "Most everything besides them seats being to close in proximity."
Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Very small tray table space. Carry on fee should have been easier to see during purchase. If I'd noticed, I would have planned differently."
Cons: "Much shorter delay. A replacement plane brought in much sooner."
Pros: "The flight was okay but then they lost my bag and have not been helpful"
Cons: "They lost my bag that they made me gate check!!!"
Pros: "Crew as great and very accommodating."
Cons: "I responded to an emergency during flight descent. The crew was great but EMS did not pay any attention to me when trying to report off. I had important patient information and they didn’t listen well. I am a trained emergency and cardiac care nurse for the heart attack team, disappointed in EMS."
Cons: "They still have TV’s from 20 years ago. They need to update to wide screen TVs"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless opposed to having a 40 min delay."
Cons: "Leaving at the scheduled time."
Pros: "Professional & on time"
Cons: "They needed to run the air conditioning more during boarding. It was hot & smelly."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late departing because of a light in the cockpit- that was the reason that was given."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled by Jet Blue for no apparent reason and I was rebooked for 2 days later, which would result in missing the flight from BOS to Malaga on TAP Air Portugal. Getting the run around from all sides about a refund, especially CS Airfare, who have lied to me several times already."
Pros: "Delay. Poor overhead storage"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "Staff was very informative."
Pros: "On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "THIS WAS CANCELLED AT ALMOST THE SAME TIME IT WAS BOOKED."
Pros: "Crew was professional and nice."
Cons: "They had to check my carry on even though it was so small. Instead of checking tiny carry on, why not check larger and heavier carry one. That matter upset me because I specifically had placed everything that is fragile in that carry on because I get to take it with me so I can be careful with it and it ended up thrown with the rest of the bags."
Pros: "is how comforting that the pilot spoke to us in a generous + friendly way \ 'twas reassuring as the flight attendant seemed disinterested + less able to exude a fruendly manner / I get it - short trip, wknd which she may wish she had had off BUT there may be one person really uncomfortable+not travel savvy that she couldve noticed...Also why review soda+salty snax?"
Pros: "comfortable-best flight in years"
Cons: "why no charge for carry on overhead? this activity is disruptive and slows everything down."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Couldn’t get internet to work."
Pros: "I loved Zach. He made me laugh and he was so excited about life. He loves his job and he deserves a raise."
Pros: "The plane left on time, the staff members were attentive and there was more leg room than on other planes."
Cons: "We were very happy when we got seats in rows 3 and 4 but by the time we boarded only 3 of the 4 carry on bags we had made it into the overhead compartments. We had no other checked bags so we had to go to baggage claim for one carry on. People were putting small bags that should go under the seats in the upper compartments."
Pros: "Flight attendant great. Seats comfortable. Flight on time."
Pros: "I have not received my refund after 2 hours on hold"

Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"
Pros: "Seats and leg space"
Pros: "i liked the seats and legroom"

Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "The airplane was freezing cold. I had on a sweater and jacket and was unbearably cold. The entire plane was miserable. There weren’t any blankets either...this is not the"
Pros: "Space in seats was better than most airlines"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The snacks and sandwich were good. The staff was very friendly, helpful and nice."
Cons: "We were unable to connect to the airplane WiFi, so we couldn't enjoy the onboard entertainment. The plane was not as clean as we would like it to be. There was old food under my seat."

Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."

Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Service was meh."
Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Cons: "Delays and more delays"
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Cons: "Comfort is ok."

Cons: "delayed, missed connection, no assistance automatically booked for 24 hrs later connection, no accomodation travelling with infant, had to spend the night (total >12 hrs) at security post, no AA employee available to assist, horrible customer service actually AA does not know if there is such a thing as customer service exist!"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"

Pros: "The entertainment was excellent! Flight was top notch! A+++ , very friendly people and nice to talk to!"
Cons: "A hippie beside me opened up his homemade fish and garlic hummus! But excellent on American Airlines end!"
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"
Pros: "Smooth, left on time. About an hour flight."
Pros: "The flight arrived on time with my luggage, and although I booked through BA, for the first time ever, they managaged to get my special meal request correct."
Cons: "I order a vegetarian meal in the hope I will get something edible. This was the worst airline food I have ever had. The plane was old so the economy class seats were larger than normal. There was, however, no in-seat entertainment. On the upside, I'm glad I didn't fly business class. Compared to the standard set by other airlines, the seats appeared to be from the 80's."
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Cons: "Boarding started almost an hour late but the status never went to delayed (they just said it was on time but kept pushing the boarding time back). Arrived in CLT with only 20 min before the next flight departure."

Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Cons: "Flight attendants barely made eye contact and certainly didn't make us feel welcome in business class."

Pros: "On time. Helpful at check-in and friendly staff on board."
Pros: "Worst customer service I have ever experience"
Cons: "They canceled my flight to Florida due to hurricane then refused to refund my return flight ticket. How can I fly back if I never made it there. Bunch of thiefs kept my money and they never got me to my destination."
Cons: "They left my bag in RDU.."
Cons: "For an airline that has been around as long as they have, their customer service is lacking signicantly. Communication was lacking to the passengers. As far as helpful, I cannot say they I witnessed anyone being helpful or trying to make a pleasant experience. The flight attendants seemed lacking in knowledge, friendliness, consideration, or empathy."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."

Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."

Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "I didnt like customer service at all"
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "Rude and un friendly stewards"
