Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Bad coffee"
Pros: "The crew and seats!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was better than expected"
Pros: "Although both flights were slightly delayed, ease of boarding and the courtesy of the Alaska Airlines staff were appealing as usual. Their aircraft had a malodorous quality, and the headrests and seat pockets could use a good cleaning, getting to and from on Alaska is generally a great way to travel."
Cons: "Could have been cleaner/ better smelling in general."
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty. Got a whole row to myself, in an otherwise packed flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Sandwich was pricey. Got glared at and eyeballed, for having a whole row to myself. LOL"
Pros: "Quick and simple flight. I appreciated the free beer to get me thru it"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable! Smallest prop plane ever. It rattled and bumped the whole way and seemed very old and busted. Not what I expect from Alaska"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats don't recline Freezing on plane No food"
Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Pros: "The logo on the plane"
Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"
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"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Heat and no air in cabin"
Pros: "Alecarte and free wine."
Pros: "I think you need to adjust the cabin pressure as my legs and feet swelled and they've never done that on another flight. I even hydrated and tried exercises prior and through the flight. Please look into - I really think there is something to investigate. Thank you."
Cons: "It took me 2 days to get the swelling to subside. Not something I've EVER had to think about let alone do. I'm wearing compression tights...dreading the flight home tomorrow."
Pros: "Our ticket handler at Alaska Airlines ( Sep 21- SMF Airport) was the most helpful and patient person we have ever encountered! The tickets we had purchased through Kayak were charged but not booked. Juan did everything in his power to get us on that flight. And when the kayak company failed to book in time Juan got us on the next available flight, being to sure to find us the best price and a direct flight, versus the one we had booked earlier. Over all Alaska Airlines will be the standard my future experiences will be based off of if I am unable to travel through them"
Pros: "Best airline I've flown on. Curtis staff, comfortable accommodations and just an overall positive experience. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Had to purchase second ticket because my wife and I couldn't get thru TSA. Name on boarding pass didnt match my wife's licence. Married vs maiden name. Alaska could change boarding pass. Passed the buck to kayak. Spent 1 hour on phone and was unable to do anything. Had to buy a separate ticket, last minute, for my wife and barely made the flight."
Pros: "Flight was quiet"
Cons: "They did not offer to board military personnel with ID."
Pros: "I was moving from California to Washington and had four checked bags. The check in lady didn't charge me for the fourth bag and moved me on to an earlier flight! On the plane, the service was excellent. They even have me cookies when they were serving pretzels for free."
Cons: "Absolutely perfect flight."
Pros: "Everything went smooth, it was a short trip. I would fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "Flight to SEA/TAC had USB outlets but the flight back to SAC didn't"

Cons: "Having mechanical difficulties and there being no way they could get us home that night."
Pros: "Had a great flight. Please incorporate a n/a choice in the survey as there was no entertainment for my one hour flight."
Cons: "Seats incredibly uncomfortable even in premium economy. Prefer to fly Delta any day. Charged for extra bag on the way back when there was no charge on the way there. Confusing."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Staff was friendly."
Pros: "Cheap prices,"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines."
Pros: "The flight attendants on flight 833 from PDX to Honolulu were memorable. They genuinely looked as if they were happy to be there and enjoyed serving us. They went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable and made many rounds to ask if anyone needed more water, food, pens to fill out the customs forms, etc."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, junk food, junk entertainment"
Pros: "On time. Good price no frills flight."
Pros: "Tablet for $10 with movies was a good deal."
Cons: "Paid for gogo Internet day pass when there was no service and no internet once we were 20 min into flight.... They should make a point to let people know the service is not available and that tablets replace it. Also the fact that the Internet was $16 and did not come with any movies or ability to stream is a ripoff. Also there was a time I asked an attendant for a ginger ale and the response was "yeah this a the trash cart" with an attitude was upsetting. It's a very long flight."
Pros: "They boarded the plane quickly and efficiently and it was clean and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "They announced they were late due to mechanical problems with the plane, which I didn't need to hear that. They they didn't finish in flight service so a lot of people didn't get drinks or snacks because they didn't time it right. Also they told us the copilot was landing the plane for the first time, also something I felt the passengers didn't need to hear as it made myself and others very nervous."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was super small worth the money to buy two tickets so you have room"
Pros: "Almost everything was pleasant, easy. The crew was especially nice and very helpful."
Cons: "I realize you are doing your best to make the cost of traveling as reasonable as possible and that making the seats quite narrow plays a big part in this goal however, I am very grateful the gentleman sitting next to me on the way to Maui was not only pleasant but was not offensive in any way. He did, however, kind of overlap the armrest so that I was squished against the other armrest. A very slender lady sat next to me on the way home. Made it a more comfortable trip. Jan"
Pros: "Arrived safely. Price was average. Experience was average. Legroom was average. Nice flower taped to toilet."
Cons: "Crew member made many sarcastic comments about passengers aloud. Snacks were bad."
Pros: "This was a great flight too."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines had a very comfortable flight with great attendants and power to charge all your devices."
Cons: "The wifi service was really poor. I paid 49.99 for Gogo and I got the service of less than a 56.k modem."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants flight got to destination early"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The fruit and cheese snack"
Cons: "I had to walk down stairs into tar Mack then all the way to the back of the plane and back up another flight of stairs. I am 8 months pregnate"
Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."
Pros: "Boarding and seating were good."
Cons: "I did not make it to that flight. The attended sent me back to Portland."
Cons: "kids crying for 90% of the flight a couple rows away. pilot would keep fasten seatbelt sign lit for long periods even though there was no turbulence. Then when the slightest turbulence arrived he/she would turn it back on immediately. Makes for going to bathroom a gambling proposition and snarky comments from flight attendants for those who decided to stay in line for bathrooms."
Pros: "Great flight attendants! I traveled with a 1yr old and a 5 yr old both boys and our flight was 5 hrs. My son had to use the bathroom quite a few times and my 1 yr old was asleep the attendants helped my son walk to the bath and walked him back to his seat! I'm thankful they could help because moving through the seats just seemed impossible with my sleeping toddler!"
Cons: "Lack of space and narrow isles"
Pros: "The attentive and pleasant flight attendants and crew. The flight time was much shorter than scheduled."
Cons: "Main cabin amenities such as snacks and entertainment remain bare without the premium service. Why isn't the lower fuel cost benefiting the fare payers yet?"
Pros: "They are pleasant, try to fix what isn't quite right quickly."
Pros: "Left on time. Sensible boarding procedure: last seats on the plane board through the rear exit, shorter boarding time without standing in the aisle while everyone tries to stuff their luggage into the overhead bins. Attentive but not intrusive flight attendants. When I forgot to stow my briefcase during landing, I got gently kidded instead of reprimanded. I have never had a bad experience with this airline in the 5 or so times I have flown with them. If I didn't have so many miles with another airline, I would use them all the time."
Cons: "I have nothing to object to."
Pros: "Very smooth no issues."
Cons: "Would've liked to have gotten in earlier."
Pros: "Everyone was cheerful and helpful. Impressive!"
Cons: "Would love more room!"
Cons: "If we took the flight. It never happened"
Pros: "I liked how welcoming the environment was. I also liked the wide variety of entertainment."
Cons: "I have many food allergies which meant I couldn't eat a single thing that was served. Also, there was a lot of advertisement."
Pros: "Appreciate it was a direct flight. The crew was friendly. However on the return flight after my checked baggage with checked my electric Clippers were not return to buy bag. I wrote several emails and made several phone calls and received no response. I bought a replacement pair but they're not nearly as good. I'm very disappointed."
Pros: "seating and personal TV screens was good"
Cons: "limitation of family seating for traveling with kids under 2 is not helpful. I would argue that kids >2 can take more time and effort... I was a single mom traveling with a 3 and 6 year old and there were no accommodations made such as earlier boarding or helping us sit together"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "Poor seat. 5 hour flight"
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Easy boarding at Sacramento, easy."
Cons: "Location of the baggage claim at Honolulu airport, other side of the airport."
Cons: "There were food crumbs on my seat that I had to pick up with my bear hands. Luckily, I brought sanitizer wipes to wipe my hands. I was traveling with my 89 year old Dad and allowed us to board first."
Pros: "Have always enjoyed Hawaiian Air in the past, but not so much this time.i"
Cons: "I had requested an asile seat, and was assured that I had one. When I boarded I found out I was in the middle of the middle section. It was very uncomfortable and I did not want to disturb my seat mates to use the restroom. Needless to say it was a very, long uncomfortable flight! Babies in front of us, babies behind us, and a large teenage group that kept the bathrooms occupied, and were very noisy.! The food was not nearly as good as it has been in the past!"
Cons: "Lost checked luggage; loud, drunk passengers yelling to each other (no crew intervention); constant bumping and jostling (made worse by rocking seats); beverage spilled on my head and down my back"
Pros: "Professional, on-time, good overhead space, courteous staff!"
Pros: "Flight staff was pleasant. Ticket agent at the gate got my mom and I a seat together closer up."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours leaving Sacramento, I booked seats together for myself and my mom but when I checked in they had us across the plane from each other. In order to get seats together we had to move from row 17 to row 43. The plane was freezing."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful it was a very pleasant flight. Food was good and movie & TV choices were amazing."
Pros: "Hawaiian air always makes you feel like you are already on the islands the first moment you step on the plane. All went smooth and as always on time"
Cons: "Limited entertainment on the upgraded comfort seat program"
Pros: "SMF is easy to get in but rental shuttles are slow to arrive early in the morning. HA crew was very good, left gate on time."
Cons: "Online check-in was a disaster, HA’s web site is not easy to navigate. Some how KAYAK messed up the data transfer and our first and middle names were joined together. HA”s web site will not allow the user to charge personal information within 24 hours of travel. Check-in for overseas travel requires passport information, if it does not match your HA profile then you cannot pre-check-in. Calling HA support was no help. Even airport agents could not fix the issue they could at least over ride the information."
Pros: "Quick problem solving and excellent service when my assigned seats were not the same on the boarding pass. The awesome safety video from around the islands. The crew was very efficient and kind. The breakfast mea was just right. Milk with good coffee! Especially liked that HA offers plenty of water! Mahalo nui loa!"
Pros: "All of the flight staff had wonderful customer service!"
Pros: "Quick inter island hop, no problems."

Cons: "just the biscoff cookies? what happened to pretzels?"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and very helpful getting us to our connecting flight to Kona since we arrived late, due to equipment problems leaving Sacramento. A free meal was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Seats too cramped together."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious enough in economy. Pretty much always on time. Nothing much else impresses me anymore with Hawaiian Airlines."
Cons: "Everything is a charge. Especially don't like that they "offer souvenir blankets for sale" and they keep the cabin especially cold. All movie/TV show options required an $8 charge on a 6hour (!) flight across the Pacific Ocean. Food was awful! Living in Hawaii I often fly Hawaiian, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal on HA. The crew on the LAX-HNL flight was not very friendly either..."
Cons: "Cancelled our flight, after that we didn't get our luggages ☹️ That's why we didn't take part of our trip to Polynesian Cultural Center, the flight was delayed 9 hours"
Cons: "2 hrs delayed. HA said they sent an email but I never received"
Pros: "Clean plane, good service"
Cons: "Only the coffee - too weak."
Pros: "Gate agents were very nice, I had very little time because of TSA being very slow. They helped me get to my flight with a few minutes to spare."
Cons: "There was not much of an option to adjust a cold draft near my seat."
Pros: "I like the overall services that were provided to me going and returning , Hawaiian airline personnel are truly the greatest of the fleet. Mahalo"
Cons: "I miss the time when Hawaiian was the only airline that still offered inflight entertainment without charging their flyers."
Pros: "The crew were very professional. The food was delicious."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding & exiting quick and easy."
Cons: "Small airport, but not much staff to help you either. Getting boarding pass & baggage tags was a bit of a disorganized mess."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "Very helpful customer service rep."
Pros: "Flight crew were very nice and accomodating! From moment i arrived at Sac international airport everyone was very friendly and helpful id definately go hawaiian again"
Cons: "I am 40 year resident. The Hawaiian themed safety instructions are corny as I hear them so often...An"
Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hrs!!"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "New safety video featuring sites and activities all over the isles Free breakfast and complimentary alcoholic drink. "I lava you" video before landing."
Cons: "No movie or even tv entertainment during flight, only tablets for rent."
Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "No movie......for a flight that long and no wi-fi........that would have been a plus"
Pros: "Hawaiian has a little more leg room."
Pros: "Friendly staff, departed on time. Clean plane, nice touch screen (pointless unless you paid extra for movies). Nice little Kahlua punch drink on return flights to Hawaii."
Cons: "Flight back to Hawaii (which was longer!) had no movies or TV shows unless you shelled out the extra money, kinda uncool. Food was a too-small sort of breakfast hot pocket kinda thing, not bad but not enough. Glad I had bought a sub sandwich at the Vegas airport. Fairly long (40ish minute) wait at HNL for some other plane to leave our gate."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and boarding was quick"
Cons: "The crew kept assuming I was with the passenger next to me despite repeatedly correcting them and was skipped numerous times for water, collection of survey etc. It is the most expensive entertainment I have experienced on an airline, especially for such a long flight. The meal could have been substituted for any type of legitimate entertainment option."
Cons: "The Hawaiian airlines employess were rude and unhelpful. The lady who checked me in seemed to have a problem with my service dog and demanded documentation that is not federally required and have me attitude. She was totally rude. When boarding the plane, the attendant made zero effort to help me locate my seat. Worst Hawaiian flight ever. No aloha. The woman in the seat next to me had a similar rude experience."
Pros: "The rum punch was good."
Cons: "We sat on the Tarmac 3 hours due to a mechanical issue."
Pros: "They serve food on flights, snack selection was good."
Cons: "Touch screen was not calibrated right."
Pros: "I'm time"
Cons: "Too cold Food bad No free blankets.. Had to keep ordering hot water to keep my hands warm Stewardess spilled cold water on me No free movies"
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"
Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"
Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."
Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
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."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "entertainment options are great. The flights are plentiful, so lots of options."
Cons: "No options for vegans on 10 hour flight!! Shame on you!! Our needs should be considered."
Pros: "On my last 4 trips in 6 mos I've flown United, Delta, and Hawaiian, to Cancun Mexico on United Aug 2015' , to Puerto Vallarta on Delta December 2015, Hawaiian to Honolulu December 2015, and Again on Delta to Honolulu Feb 2015. Hands down Delta IS THE BEST, there nothing better then having Free movies to pass the time, from TV to HBO and SHOWTIME and Current Movies in the theaters TODAY music, games, etc even free headsets any eye cover to rest ALL FOR FREE Delta isn't so worried about charging for eveything, a happy traveler is a repeat traveler, that is DELTAS GOAL Happy repeat travelers I voiced my displeasure with Hawaiian after finding out on my Day flight over I get charged $10 for blanket n pillow and free ( bad ) meal. Then on red eye home it's free blanket and no food, I can bring my own better food, and blanket which I do, but to charge for entertainment is the worst thing ever, AND EVEN FOR SIMPLE MUSIC WAS A CHARGE, SUCH POOR SERVICE Delta hands down IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ORIENTED PERIOD DELTA DELTA DELTA I'M FOREVER YOUR HAPPY TRAVELER,"
Cons: "The snack boxs are kinda unappealing, I bought both and they were jost OK, But that's fine I can bring food simply enough and would have but I was running late, Happy traveler"
Cons: "My seat choice was ignored on one flight"
Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."
Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"
Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
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: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
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: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"
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"
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
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: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on flight. No movies on flight. Plane was older. Seats were uncomfortable."
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"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind"
Cons: "Comfort level was very low. I'm 6'0 y'all and with my seat in an upright posistion my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. My chair barely reclined which cause me to not get any sleep. These two comfort factors made it a restless uncomfortable flight."
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."
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
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"
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Pros: "Food was good but had to purchase on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Delays.... The crew didn't know our gate was changed until we told him. Some of the crew were very rude."
Pros: "On time. Made connecting international flight ok."
Pros: "I loved the flight, the service, and the whole experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. That's the best part."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "Everything was fine, there was nothing exceptional about the flight."
Cons: "Just that it was rather cramped but that's pretty much flying on any airline these days, so I can't say that they're at fault."
Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Cons: "No drinks on the flight, even in first class. They should tell customers before they purchase the update!"
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."
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: "Flight quick, everything went smooth. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "No negative comments."
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "I couldn't believe that this long flight had NOTHING in the form of entertainment. No wifi to watch on your own device and no inflight entertainment. I was stuck in the middle of 2 people with a baby with nothing to pass the hours. Unbelievable!!!"
Pros: "Outlets at all the seats."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, which would be fine if they tell people ahead of time. This is a long flight if you don't come prepared."
Pros: "Our attendant Andrea M was a breath of fresh air. Always smiling and attentive to our needs . She was great! Ah, if only all UAL and other US airlines flight attendants were like her. Kudos to her!!!"
Pros: "On time and good a short flight"
Pros: "They put me on a taxi to SF"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 2 hours"
Cons: "Spent $13 for Internet but it didn't even work"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay"
Pros: "The Economy Section Flight crew on the LA to Honolulu 2/18/16 flight lived up to UA's advertised flight service Good job - you made a frequent flier want to return to another UA flight soon."
Cons: "I have no complain."
Cons: "Old planes, blanket with hair, no complimentary meals"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times resulting in connecting flight being missed."
Pros: "They moved my connecting flight as my first flight was delayed and there wouldn't be enough time to make the connection. They initiated it so I didn't even have to ask the question and they put me on a better flight."
Cons: "I was hoping that they had wifi for video streaming but they didn't so there was no entertainment, however it was only an hour flight so I didn't mind much"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over one hour. I had to ask to flight attendant to ask the pilot if they could wave the TV/movie entertainment fees due to the delay with the flight, which was approved. I did not like the fact that I had to ask about that when that offer should had been automatic. In the past, when flying and a delay happens, other airlines like Hawaiian and Delta have waved their entertainment fees. The baggage claim took over 45 minutes to release the flights luggage."
Pros: "On board entertainment did not work but otherwise a good flight."
Pros: "Roomy seats & leg room, free movies, arrived 30min early."
Cons: "That one attendant, that prob should look for another job, she does not enjoy that line of work, just the paycheck. No fault of United: 2 crying babies..."
Pros: "The stewardesses were polite and helpful."
Cons: "United does not take care of military. They have terrible customer service and charged me for my bags when Delta waives my baggage fees. The baggage people were so rude and didn't want to help anyone in line."
Pros: "My first flight was cancelled....had a 3 hour wait for next flight on a diffrent airline..Got booked on a over booked flight at my connection in LA were there was another 2 hour layover, but a young lady at the United podeum in Sacramento got me on a flight from LA to SD, for whatever reason no one else could. Thank you who ever you were"
Cons: "Thank you United lady whoever you were."
Pros: "Crew was great entertainment was poor"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. I really like the new seats United has in their new planes too. They seem really thin and light, but surprisingly more comfy."
Cons: "I didn't like that fact that with United Airlines there is a $25 fee to check in your bag or how inconsistent the company is from airport to airport. The boarding process is slow and unorganized. You guys don't offer a comimentary snack like other airlines and your crew members aren't that friendly. Extremely dissatisfied."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was two younger female crew on the flight. They were friendly"
Cons: "Horrible ground crew service. I was assigned to seat 33B, when boarding the computer printed out a new boarding pass with new seat 30B for me without any kind of notices in advance. I wasn't traveling alone, of course we would like to sit next to each other. When got on the plane, the new seat I got 30B was already taken by another older lady which her boarding pass has exact same seat as mine "30B". I had to walk to the very front of the plane to talk to someone and he was no help because he said "I had to wait for the agent to talk to me". I stood there by the door for 20 minutes or so, telling him my seat got change and there's someone sitting there and I would prefer to go back to the seat o was originated to the first time as it was exit row seat. The ground crew said I can't and I need to sit at 30B which there's another person sitting. He left, came back 10 minutes later saying the same thing. How am I supposed to sit on 30B when there's someone with exact same boarding pass, same seat sitting. He said "no one is sitting there. She moved. You need to go sit at that seat", I walked there and nope, she's still there. I wasn't gonna waste my time arguing because obviously United ground crew member were no help and rude. I went back to seat 33 where I was supposed to sit and of course it was empty. They kept telling me it was a FULL flight with no open seat but that wasn't true at all. Seat 33 was open so the seat 2 seats away from me on the same row. No wonder why asian airlines have better rating in services compare to American. Your crew members are rude and just not smiley. Not even an apologize was once said to me when I had to deal with YOUR mistake United airline."
Cons: "No food during long flights"
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour so there's not much rank, it was delayed at first but only 15 minutes, the stuard was was kinda just there bc she worked that day and we had to wait to take off for a while but otherwise it was pretty basic."
Pros: "The second leg was a bit more comfortable. We arrived to our destination on time and safely. Thank you to the pilots."
Cons: "Sac to Houston, felt like we were jammed in like sardines, narrow seats, very little wiggle room between rows. As if a five-seat row had been altered to squeeze in a sixth seat, to be able to squeeze more people onto an already full plane. There is no entertainment unless one has an app of some sort on an electronic device of some sort. Nothing is about the paying customer anymore. It's all about how much money can be made....sad Second leg, a flight attendant was rude to my husband, and the boarding was confusing, as zones 1-3 were all called at once, and the attendant quit using the mic, so no one could hear her. Oh, well, hope the flight home is better. Sac to Houston, felt like we were jammed in like sardines, narrow seats, very little wiggle room between rows.

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Received a window seat. No one was sitting in the middle, so it was an extremely comfortable flight."
Cons: "No wifi available."
Pros: "I liked the space in the economy plus and drinks were served often."
Cons: "It's was a 9 hour flight and the only snacks that were offered were the ones you had to pay for. I had a headache getting off the plane because I almost starved the entire ride. The staff was helpful but dead no character to them or atleast they didn't show it. Also as long as this flight was my screen froze for the last 5 hours but I didn't miss anything because I couldnt listen to the TV from the start. The female end where u put the headphone plug had something jammed in it so I watched watever my neighbor was watching and clued together what they were saying in the movie. Needless to say I was bored out of my mind and my stomach was not very happy with me. Hopefully my flight in 9 days is a lot better."
Pros: "Free tv."
Cons: "Super delayed. Require passengers to be there at original time but not the crew!?! Who delayed us even more for being late."
Pros: "I had to change my flight at the last minute. I flew to Huston and from there to Mn. Customer service representatives got me on an even earlier flight!! Altogether great, flying United is the way to go!"
Pros: "Had a very nice stewardess"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth and quick. Pilot kept informing us on the conditions and staff was very friendly. The seats in economy were decent and I enjoyed having the head rest fold in on the sides since I forgot my neck pillow."
Cons: "How tight the seats are from the rows in front and back."
Pros: "The pilots were awesome landing and take offs were GREAT!!"
Cons: "I was delayed twice on my way to Sacramento didn't get to my hotel until after midnight or 3am Ohio time after sitting in the airport since 7am. And was told they had to get an override on the 2nd delay because they never experienced 2 delays on the same person and wasn't OFFERED anything for my time or patience"
