Cons: "WiFi was on and off the entire trip"

Pros: "The pilot went around to passengers and apologized foe delay."
Cons: "3 plus hours of delay????"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked getting the $75 credit due to the extreme lateness of the flight."
Cons: "The passengers seemed a bit wound up after a 3 hour delay. When it was time for the safety review, several passengers were not listening to the attendants, and one attendant shouted "Hey, you need to listen. This is important. This is not a party bus." I understand her frustration, but her behavior was really unprofessional. I've been in customer service for years, and you never let your personal frustration show. She should have brought the behavior to the attention of the flight deck for the pilot to make an announcement, etc. Southwest attendants are always cool, calm and collected. I'll bear that in mind the next time I book."

Cons: "Plane delayed"

Cons: "Pilots were 50 mins late"

Cons: "Delays galore"

Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"

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: "Boarding and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Power outlet was loose and allowed plug to drop out of outlet. USB didn’t work"

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."

Cons: "delayed leaving, delayed arriving, sat on tarmac on both ends..."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and well trained"
Cons: "Delayed, due to smoke conditions"

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!"
Cons: "Flying."

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: "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: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"

Pros: "Staff go above and beyond to be friendly and they truly do have a serve with a smile attitude."
Cons: "Nothing!"

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 good and luckily for passengers, not full so more space!! Bought hot meal, and was good ."

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: "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: "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: "Quick flight. Relatively comfortable for a small plane. Service was quick and timely. Plane was on time"

Pros: "Everything is good. Service Excellence all around!"
Cons: "More options in snacks."

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 always fly with Alaska because they always have a great crew, very friendly and if you have an issue they are very helpful in solving it."
Cons: "I didn't like that some older airplanes dont have the upgrades yet. I can actually tell the difference in seat size in the older model planes and the new ones. the new ones are a lot bigger seats. while the older planes the seats make me feel so big and not comfy at all"

Pros: "Great customer service on the flight"
Cons: "First class seat was not very comfortable."

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."

Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And the gate was not clearly marked. Had to take a bus to the plane and wait in it for like 15?'inutes. With no AC and it was HOT"

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: "Pilot was always keeping everyone posted about time and turbulence"
Cons: "N/A"

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: "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: "chargers at seats"

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

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: "Cancelled"
Cons: "Cancelled"

Pros: "Most of the crew were great. Responded to requests promptly. Wifi and movies I could watch on my phone."
Cons: "Seating was tight and my set back was broken. Individual screens for movies."

Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"

Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"

Cons: "I sat in a middle seat, sandwiched in between a passenger who had an aisle seat on my left and another passenger who had a window seat on my right. It would have been okay, but both were much larger than me and with the seat already a bit narrow, I felt like a sardine on this flight."

Cons: "Stewardess very rude"

Pros: "Helpful staff and located us at the front of the plane. Easy checkin and friendly attendants."
Cons: "The in flight sandwich was so so but overall good, Turkey sandwich and pepper mayonnaise, for airline food. They included kettle chips and a brownie which was a nice touch."

Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."

Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"

Pros: "The movie selection was great!"

Pros: "We were delayed, but still arrived almost on time at our destination"
Cons: "Delay due to weather."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"

Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Service was meh."
Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"

Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."

Pros: "Nothing."
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: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."

Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."

Cons: "Oh Gina, I would have checked my bag if only you had looked up from your phone for a second!"

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: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."
Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"

Pros: "- Great entertainment system and choices - Timely departure and arrival"

Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"

Pros: "Everything was great. Comfortable seats & good service."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."

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."

Pros: "We made it home safely"
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: "The aircraft was not well maintained, middle holds were small and could not accommodate a normal hand bag. A side hold had to be taped to close it."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "On time. Helpful at check-in and friendly staff on board."

Cons: "They left my bag in RDU.."

Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."

Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"

Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."

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: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."

Cons: "Wifi. Cleaning out back pocket of seat"

Pros: "The gate counter gentleman was fantastic. I was seated at the window and I had lost my compression socks on the flight just a couple days before so I wanted to be able to get up and stand without climbing over a passenger. Since I am over 60 years of age, I asked if there was an opportunity in the very back to have an empty seat next to me. Me did find me one and I TOTALLY appreciated it. I used to have the status to have the better seats and it was hard to lose that...this was wonderful. Thanks for making me feel valued."
Cons: "The communication while we were awaiting the delay due to thunderstorm. We did get 2 updates, but I feel over communication better than under ;)"

Pros: "Very nice crew"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "My baggage got lost. Don’t lose it."

Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."

Pros: "All was perfect!"

Cons: "Clean"

Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Late arrival of aircraft. Mechanical problems with navigation able to get through that but took off one hour late. The usual."

Pros: "I’m thankful for the non-stop route between Raleigh and San Francisco. I think I’m being disrespected by the Econ Plus fee of $92 for what??— 6 more inches of legroom?? There’s no way to make a 6-7 hour flight enjoyable beyond first class, so there you go..."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks. For some of us, it’s not just a trendy fad but an actual allergy with severe consequences."

Cons: "The breakfast could have been more substantial than just a muffin. But everything else was very good!"

Cons: "Plane was delayed due to weather from other places. More than 100 people were missing their connections. Crew was irritated with so many questions and seemed bothered to give out flight info to worried customers."

Once sweaty on board the flight was turned back to the terminal delayed three hours and I missed my flight home that day. I then spent from 11pm to 8am in the terminal"

Cons: "We were 3 hrs delayed getting out of RDU because a 'test button' wasn't working. Missed my original connecting flight and the two connecting flights they had me on standby for. got to ohare, the united customer 'service' rep said "there are no more flights to Madison today - I don't even have to look. If you want to get there today, you need to go get on the bus". They didn't even offer to pay for the bus ticket ! Just rude and no customer 'service' at all !"

Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
