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 don't fly Alaska much but I might make more of an effort to do so after this past experience."

Cons: "Having to pay for own transportation and time to San Jose when flight was supposed to be out of San Francisco."

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Cons: "I called and wanted exchange my flight purchase for a credit for another flight as I had gone into the hospital the day before and received a doctors note regarding an infection of the ear and I was instructed by my physician to be weary of flying immediately and I have the note from my physician to provide if necessary. After speaking with multiple people they said they do not have a medical clause and I could not get my money back or even a credit to reschedule a flight."

Cons: "Did not like the rates for wifi. First r such a short flight it should be FREE."

Cons: "My 4:30 pm flight leg to San Jose was cancelled, rebooked at 5:30 AM the following day through Seattle."

Pros: "Clean new planes. Good service."

Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "sat in a middle seat"

Pros: "1st class and iMessage"
Cons: "No tv/wifi to watch anything"

Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."

Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."

Pros: "The crew was really nice & the Alaska check in was really helpful tp make sure I went to the right area."
Cons: "Was one of the first ones there. When boarding they started to to load from backto front. After they called the back from rows 20 & beyond a few mins later a whole group of people came running over & got in line, then another wave of people came running over & got in line. Then they called for the rest to board but there was only about 5 people. So we ended up being the last one on."

Pros: "Everything else was standard"
Cons: "The jumbled mess of a line getting on the plane. I would much prefer an organized line without crowding"

Pros: "Check in was fast. Airport was hassle free. Uber was easy."

Pros: "Everyone was incredibly friendly!!"
Cons: "Screaming 2 year old. No one can control that...."

Cons: "Departure happened when we were supposed to arrive"

Pros: "New plane. On board USB charging."
Cons: "Flight was late"

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: "Nine was great."

Cons: "Delay boarding"

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."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "did not supply pens to fill out the US custom form and they don't ask if you need one, I never carry a pen on me"

Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "On time. Big space. Friendly attendance"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

Pros: "I was running late but was already checked in, the flight boarded at 5:30am and was schedule to take off at 6:15. They were nice enough to keep the cabin doors open as I finally boarded at 6:05am, making the flight. Not to mention we even arrived about a couple minutes earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "It is a very nice touch to be offered a complimentary beer. What a treat."
Cons: "The bathroom was not nice. No sink to wash hands seems unreasonable"

Cons: "So professional during this pandemic. I felt safe the whole time. Slept like a baby, the flight was so smooth."

Cons: "Mechanical issue put us out late, then weather kept us circleing for another 45 minutes. Spent the night at msp had to fly out the next day to final destination."

Pros: "Slept the whole way. Served wine."

Pros: "Comfort plus is a nice upgrade"
Cons: "Having a clear gate to take advantage of being early."

Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"

Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."

Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"

Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."

Pros: "Boarding so efficient we left early and arrived super early."
Cons: "WiFi on plane dropped out a lot."

Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."

Pros: "Clean Washroom"
Cons: "N A"

Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"

Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"

Cons: "Late arrival"

Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"

Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"

Pros: "Late as usual"

Pros: "No air conditioning. Sat at the terminal in 95+weather, many elderly on the plane in hot weather. Attendants said oh well well at least your not in the back of the plane. Also intercom was set to blaring with a high pitched squealing sound."

Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"

Pros: "Excellent seat assignment good leg room plane on time staff friendly"

Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."

Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."

Cons: "No Gluten free option"

Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."

Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"

Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."

Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "The flight attendants were incredible the flight was great the movies for good great for our flight"

Pros: "On Tim and friendly"

Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."

Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."

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: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Pros: "Overall great experience"

Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."

Cons: "Passenger that sat next to me occupied part of my seat."

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"

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

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

Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Nothing."

Cons: "Comfort is ok."

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

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

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

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 and very professional"

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"

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

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: "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."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

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

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."

Cons: "Computer systems were down and delayed boarding by almost 45 minutes."

Pros: "Planes are newer, seat backs are thinner which gives the impression of more leg room, not very comfortable though unfortunately."
Cons: "For what looks like a competitive airfare consumers get up charged when it's time to get your seat assignment (ie. pay $9 or $15 or $30 MORE for a seat on the plane when it's time to check in - not disclosed when you book through Kayak of course). To be fair, there was 1 seat available for $0, it was in the last row in the middle...1 seat. I also experienced a first...getting charged $30 to bring my backpack on board as a carry-on. Airlines are now charging to put luggage in the overhead compartment. Same carry-on luggage you'd bring with you on any other airline for free, apparently not on Frontier. $30 for a backpack, wow. Apparently Frontier also claims 'we don't participate in TSA Pre-Check', meaning it's great if you have TSA Pre-check, but given Frontier doesn't 'participate' in this program even if the consumer has paid the $100 and cleared to checks to use this program (which is awesome), if you fly Frontier, you can't use it, they won't put the 'TSA Pre-Check' denotation on your boarding pass. Huh? I get companies like this shooting for operational efficiency, scaling lean, profit maximization et al, however this airline feels like a total money suck from top to bottom. 'We have snacks available for purchase'! Of course you do Frontier, of course you do."

Pros: "The plane was clean and the attendants very nice"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac in Denver for a gate from almost 45 minutes. We waited for 1.5 hours for our luggage to reach the baggage claim area."

Cons: "I didn't like how it was delayed for 2 hours. I bought this ticket to get home to see my fiancé because he was coming home from deployment. Then with it being delayed caused problems"

Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "Ala cart pricing, the sales pitch of the Frontier credit card."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Everything I hated"

Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the plane to take off due to a luggage loading problem. I was over an hour late getting home."

Cons: "Prices to high"

Cons: "The pilot seemed inexperienced . Felt like on the job training during the decent and landing in OC"

Cons: "Charge for cabin lugguage and soft drinks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The 4hr delay that wasn't told until post check in. I was forced to rent a car and made it faster than the plane."

Pros: "that they make you buy food - i hate the waste of food that people don't need or don't eat / so having people pay for whatever they want is awesome"
Cons: "paying for check-in bag"

Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "Boarded quickly to sit forever. We taxied in Chicago for 30 min..."

Pros: "Frontier is not what it used to be. Your nickled and dimed. I will avoid using Frontier in the future."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "No water or any beverage offered. A new low even for Frontier."

Cons: "Everything"
