Pros: "The price was good...initially."
Cons: "My Fiji flights between Honolulu and Auckland were cancelled so they rebooked me on Jetstar and New Zealand Airways Apparently the international date line was not taken into account and I arrived in Sydney hours after my connecting flight to Auckland had already left! I talked to 7 different people in all corners of Sydney airport and no one knew what to do with me. My attempts to call Fiji Airways from my cell phone and then a landline at the airport didn't go through so I ended up messaging a friend in the States and she was able to call and get me booked on a NZ Air flight to Auckland that left the next morning. Both Jetstar and NZ Air gave me different information on what paperwork I needed and what my baggage and carry-on allowance was, which was frustrating. I finally arrived in Auckland 26 hours later than scheduled. I understand the cyclone cancelling the Fiji flights but the rescheduling error caused some significant expenses and a great deal of hassle."

Cons: "The button to call a flight steward means nothing. I pushed the button over 5 times and saw others do the same and no one came - it took 15 minutes! In any airline 2 rings and no matter what someone would come if to say wait please. I experienced this 3 out of the 4 flights I had with Fiji Airways. Terrible!

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"
Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Pros: "flight was on time!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."
Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."
Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."
Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."
Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."

Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"
Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."
Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"
Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"
Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"
Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"
Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."
Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"
Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."
Cons: "2 days late"
Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."
Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."
Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"
Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."
Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("
Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"
Cons: "4 hr. Layover"
Cons: "A few crew members was rude"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"
Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."
Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"
Cons: "Despite having a purchased ticket and a seat, I showed up to the airport because I was having problems checking in online. When I arrived at the kiosk it did not print a boarding pass, instead a slip stating I had missed my check-in timeframe and head to the front. I went to the front assuming the counter clerk would resolve the issue but she advised that the only thing she could do is book me on the next flight since the flight was over booked. I was really upset about the situation since I had to be at an event at a specific time. Just make sure you check in as soon as you can. If you are having issues on your phone, call the airline or head to the airport about an hour and a half to two hours early to get your boarding pass."
Cons: "The connection time at the Dulles airport was ridiculous. To get from gate C to A in 20 minutes was difficult and I almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Cons: "I couldn’t check in for my flights ahead of time because the check in system from United and Copa airlines didn’t accept my reservation details. My first flight from Sacramento to San Francisco with United was cancelled and I was not informed until I arrived at the gate for check in. United wanted to rebook me on a flight to Los Angeles and Newark which would have been a delay of 10 hours. After security I had to go to the gate of a delayed flight to San Francisco and ask that they put me back on my original itinerary"
Pros: "On time, smooth"
Cons: "Arriving in LAX with no gate to pull up to. When will United fix this decades-long defficiency?"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "My baggage was lost."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Plan on wearing your running shoes. United is bad at giving you a lay over that is almost impossible to make. 45 minutes or less for a layover is going to give u a pretty good chance to miss your flights. We went to LAX and had to run from terminal 8 to 7. If it were long we would have missed it.."
Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There was absolutlely no food. Not eve a bag of peanuts."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"

Pros: "Great stewardess"
Cons: "Entirely too hot in the plane"
Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"
Pros: "On time, baggage was handled well."
Cons: "Seats were way too crowded, especially for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Love business class on the 757"
Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "The first class experience was very sub par we did not feel we got our money's worth"
Cons: "No drinks on the flight, even in first class. They should tell customers before they purchase the update!"
Pros: "Getting to my destination. Other than that.. it feels like I'm just a sack of meat being herded and potentially lead to slaughter. Nothing elegany, exciting or glamorous about flying these days. Just trying to not get sick, die or break the bank to get to my deatination and do so with dignity. Flying United I felt like I had little to no dignity by the time I arrived at my destination. But, I have to admit, you get what you pay for...."
Cons: "Every single aspect. From checking in to boarding, to in flight to disembarking.. it's not all United's fault. The entire industry really.."
Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."
Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."
Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"
Cons: "We were delayed"
Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."
Cons: "I didn't like hearing the overhead storage will soon cost."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Have to pay for movies/ shows"
Cons: "WIFI was a rip-off. Paid for an hour, only got 15 minutes"
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Ran on time."
Cons: "Sitting next to a larger gentleman which boxed out my own personal space. Having to stow my suitbag in an overhead bin several rows behind me."
Cons: "Scheduled for 7:20pm, but delayed until 8:20pm. Very disorganized way of handling carry on baggage. Not worth the $208 I paid for this one way flight."
Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "Plane was full. Legroom poor, as I am 6'2". But I was give an isle seat as requested , so able to stretch a little."
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Space between aeats"
Pros: "I can't really rate the food or entertainment. The flight was a red-eye so I slept. However, I slept well in First Class after upgrading several hours prior to take off."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour 30 minutes late taking off."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Won't let you check in in advance so they can give you a terrible seat for a 12 hour flight. They won't even let you check in from the point of departure if it's with one of their partners. They also will do everything in their power to not give award miles to pattern airline clubs. It doesn't matter if you give them your United number and even register your United number with the flight for United. They will apply it to the Lufthansa Club and pretend it was just in the state and never actually give you the miles no matter how many times you try. This is not from one experience with Lufthansa / Austrian. I've had this experience many times with every flight I take with these terrible Airlines. I would never fly lifthansa unless it's at least $200 cheaper than any of their competitors."
Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."
Pros: "that they warned me the plane was extra small and checked my carry-on at the gate for free."
Cons: "that they didn't really advertise how small of a plane I would be flying. I guess you're supposed to research every plane before purchasing tickets now."
Cons: "we were an hour late"
Pros: "Flight quick, everything went smooth. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "No negative comments."
Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Pros: "Easy booking. Good flight. Amazing price"
Cons: "Everything was really pleasant."
Pros: "For a coach seat, it was ok since I sat with my wife in a 3 seats row."
Cons: "The fact that you couldn't upgrade with miles."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"
Pros: "Overall, good. The champagne pre-take off was probably the worst I've ever tried. Service was variable. The seat and in flight entertainment are good."
