Airline reviews

Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."

Pros: "Sturdest were very kind"
Cons: "There was 2 choices for food either pork or chicken But when I asked for chicken they told us no more chicken Then they took the pork from the tray and I had to eat the rest without the main course. Also all the seats were taken by the people who bought the tickets directly from JAL,but there was few seats left all in the middle for people who purchase tickets from travel agents."

Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "Great crew. I easy transfer!"
Cons: "Food was not great."

Pros: "everything went well. food and service was great."
Cons: "the return flight had a guy next to me that would keep putting his feet in front of me. he would spill over to my side so much. pretty rude person."

Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Respect for people at a level I haven’t seen on domestic US airlines. Seat configuration of 2-4-2 in economy was great. Food and entertainment was really good. Flight arrived on time with no issues."
Cons: "That the level of service on other airlines isn’t at this level. Don’t go to AA looking for a good example."

Pros: "The staff are always very polite and professional. Food was fine (better the past years). Everything was punctual and orderly."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. The gray ones were much better (San Diego to Narita) in comparison."

Pros: "Courteous and professional flight attendants"
Cons: "Long gap between meals. At least they could have provided juice or snacks in between meals"

Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."

Pros: "Quick boarding, great staff, and a smooth ride on 787 dreamliner."
Cons: "Entertainment system went down but the staff fixed it."

Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."

Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."

Pros: "The staff helping to check in was amazing. There was an error which checking in at LAX, we didn’t have our seats assigned. Ali was able to get us seats together, and by a window at that! She was incredible and super helpful. I knew it would be a great flight just from her service at the beginning."
Cons: "I wish there was a paper that showed you options for food/drinks. The language barrier was a bit difficult at times but the crew was incredibly patience and made sure we got what we asked for."

Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly kind and attentive"

Pros: "Ok seats but not quite lay flats. Lay at an angle. Great service by staff"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was outdated. Very dated. The food selection was limited. The cabin was noisy"

Pros: "The on board service was very pleasant. Enjoyed the movies on my seat's TV screen. Enjoyed the food very much!"
Cons: "First time on a 787 so was a little disappointed the economy class seating was still a little cramped, the in-flight entertainment and service made up for it though."

Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight attendants were very..attentive!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, movie selection was great and the 787 is a nice plane"

Pros: "Great flight, great food (Hagendaus Ice Cream was a great treat)"

Pros: "Very nice , good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "When I checked in for my flight it was fast, efficient and friendly. Their Manila staff is awesome! I was very impressed and happy with their service. I will be using JAL again."

Pros: "They were good at helping with problems being it was my first time on a plane."
Cons: "The food was ok but not very good for as the meals go but they did fill me up with drinks lol"

Pros: "The food on this flight was horrible. Big disappointment. Usually, the food on Japan Airlines is wonderful. However, on this flight, the food was a crab/mayo sandwich with yogurt. However, the service was wonderful, as always."

Pros: "The service is excellent and the quality of food is much better than most international airlines. Haven't used Japan Airlines in years but their service has been exceptionally consistent."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system and the not-so-clean restrooms (perhaps due to a full flight or that passengers are just plain dirty)."

Pros: "The aircraft was excellent."
Cons: "The service could be bit more personal for a long 13 hour flight."

Pros: "Clean and nice staff"
Cons: "Seats separated from my friend for 14hrs."

Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."

Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"

Pros: "Great service. Great in flight entertainment. Served a meal. Had USB charge port. Spacious even though I was in the last row."

Pros: "Great flight, great staff. The food wasn't bad either."

Pros: "Curteous and pleasant."
Cons: "All packed the plane. Tight."

Pros: "The service Japan Airlines gives is always the best service possible.They treat you like they need you and not the other way around.I will fly with them again."

Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."

Pros: "Flight crew was very professional and courteous. The food was excellent! It was like eating at an awesome Japanese restaurant! There were toothbrush kits w/small tubes of toothpaste in the bathrooms, which was a nice touch. Bathrooms were very clean. Entertainment was very good and had many choices. Would love to fly them again any chance I get! Probably the best flight experience I've ever had."

Pros: "The service on this flight was excellent.First class service in the economy section."

Pros: "prompt check in , ample baggages allowances, food and overall steward services."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."

Pros: "The seat have enough legs room,I'm 181cm usually feel uncomfortable when I take airplane to somewhere, however Japan Airline offer really good service and comfortable seat."

Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."

Pros: "checking in at chicago ohare ord was a nightmare.there were only 12 of us in line yet the wait exceeded 1 hour , we watched as the airlines next to us processed well over 150 passenger's while the japan airline moved slower than snail sex. it was painfully beyond slow."

Pros: "Boarding!"
Cons: "Food was below standard."

Pros: "great service and help with everything!!"

Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."

Pros: "All are professional."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Some announcements were only made in Korean. Would have been nice to have it in English for international flight."

Pros: "Yes, crews were excellent"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers should be clear"

Pros: "Preference given for those requiring extra help boarding"
Cons: "Very narrow seats with very very limited leg room. I’m only 5’4” tall and had no leg room. My sister is 5’11” and had leg cramps from the 4.5 hour flight because of the lack of leg room. Probably time to replace this plane."

Pros: "Same as the first flight. Korean flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. Foods ok. We couldn’t afford first or prestige class so we have to trade in our comfort in economy."
Cons: "Flight wasn’t as long but if you add up the lay over time, it end up being long."

Pros: "Nice bathhroom size"

Pros: "Accomodating the cew"

Cons: "I would have given a 5 Stars for comfort if the cabin temperature is at least cooler not dry. Please please look into it."

Cons: "Everything was going well until our bags didn’t show up at our final destination. Big no-no. Just ruined the otherwise pleasant experience"

Pros: "Again the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The 747-400 flight had some metal box mounted on the floor under the seat in front of me. I have a bad left hip and was in pain the whole flight because all I could do is keep my left leg in one position. If these boxes are necessary then get those seats more space so it will not be a problem. Put new Monitor screens into the seats."

Cons: "Just the more than one hour departure delay. Reason given was that they were still waiting for passengers on a connect connecting flight. Then what was unusual was a manual head count of passengers which was out of the ordinary in this high tech world of modern air transportation"

Pros: "The service and especially the flight stewart, he has to be the best one EVER!!!"
Cons: "I was too distracted by the professionalism, friendliness and care of the fight stewart to see anything bad."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Kayak used a sub company to reserve flights. My husband was involved in a collision at sea and was not able to make the flight due to military deployment status. I tried continuously to contact the sub company to request a waiver or hold on the flight. The number provided kept me on a hold . There were no answers to phone calls from information provided on receipt. Emails only stated the fees that would be imposed for any action I conducted. I will never use kayak again."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "The omelette, I received horrible food poisoning and all my friends had upset stomachs. Bad experience due to that... Everyone around me also wasn't happy, due to gaseous stomach / farting, poor people."

Pros: "Bibimbap not available. Crew checked in our carry-on despite having space above our seats (Carry-on was not checked in during Chicago to Seoul trip). Unresponsive entertainment system. If this was only a ICN - MNL flight this is overpriced since it feels like a budget airline."

Pros: "First of all, you should not be charging a cancelation fee for unforeseen circumstance such as health problems. Second of all, I have not received a response yet from the emails I have been sending. It is extremely hard to call your hotline for foreigners."
Cons: "Refund policy"

Cons: "I bought my ticket last minute not realizing that my lay over in Korea was 12 hours I arrived in Korea at 5:30 am, stayed at the airport , slept , walked, ate, sleep patiently waited for my 1930 boarding I finally boarded and was told in their broken English that I am going to be inspected I was thoroughly searched, my pursed was inspected, my body was inspected ,the asked me to open both of my hands and they run a white strips into my palm( I'm a nurse ) and the first thing that entered my mind was they were checking me for drug screen I am very bothered with what happened , Korean airlines makes their passenger have a long lay over and at the end will be thoroughly searched because she stayed in the airport too long How is Korean airlines going to support this insult!!! Anyone tell ne"

Cons: "We are delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "Everything was very good. I really enjoyed the korean music on the entertainment device."

Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat on line and ended up in a window seat. With the seats in front of my row reclined all the way back, I could not get out of my seat to use the restroom. Having just transferred from Korean Airlines and taken other asian airlines on my trip, it's a hard comparison to a domestic airline, although Hawaiian is among one of the better domestics. On my food tray, there was a bowl of miso soup, that the attendant was trying to hand me, while there was turbulence. The bowl of miso was smiling all over the tray, and on my napkin, and since I was on the inside seat, almost spilled all over me. On a previous Korean airline fight, also with turbulence, the attendant had taken the bowl off the tray, and covered it with a saran, and then handed it to me to make sure it wouldn't spill all over me. There's a bit of difference there."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "long wait for our baggage to be released to the conveyors after we had arrived"

Pros: "My special meal request was honored and was quite tasty! The plane was comfortable--seats to lavatory!"

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "Everything!"

Pros: "Boarding process was pretty smooth. Food was OK and the on-flight entertainment was good. I liked having the camera on the plane where you could see over where we were flying as well as the frontal camera. Also liked the map views."
Cons: "I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters..."

Pros: "Everything was great. The only suggestion I would like to make on another topic is the cost of an extra luggage. Compared to another airline I use (Eva Air), I find the Korean Air extra luggage cost much higher."

Cons: "The food was a little strange, I had salmon and rice as “breakfast” with iceberg lettuce side salad. The pieces of salmon were little shreds with a funky taste. Not bad, but not what I wanted on a long red eye flight. Also I wish there’d been more Hollywood movie selections."

Pros: "Service, entertainment , drinks, everything! Very good!"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "A bit warm"

Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"

I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."

Pros: "Service, great customer service."

Pros: "Gate agent was very friendly and was able to changes seats so my parents can sit together."
Cons: "None of the entertainment was free and the provided food was not good at all."

Pros: "Free maitai on economy! Sandwich was unusually tasty! Friendly staff!"

Pros: "Tail wind"
Cons: "The crew professional."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The plane maintenance for the video equipment seems to be lacking and the plane interior was dated."

Pros: "where I was sitting in the back"
Cons: "The leg space...a little tight"

Pros: "Food service was a suprise. My wife is gluten free and she brought stuff for herself."
Cons: "Seemed like everything was extra. Radio was all I could listen to for free. Even old tv was a charge."

Cons: "It was a red eye flight, the lights were on for most of it the announcements were non stop. there were so many empty seats some upgrade and some just economy blocked of by a curtain. Allow people to move and spread out in these cases it's just rude and greedy to keep these seats empty when everyone is crammed in tight through out the plane."

Pros: "When you board a Hawaiian flight, your Hawaii trip has begun. In-flight magazine is impressively high quality. Meal with wine included is great. USB charging port for phone helpful."
Cons: "Could not select seat when booked flight, or was moved. Would prefer meal be poultry, not beef, since a lot of people don't eat beef. Charging for blanket and entertainment seems odd when meal included. No power outlet for laptop."

Cons: "Would like to see complementary movies on flights especially for children on flights over 2 hrs."

Pros: "Lunch included with airfare. Overall feeling of the flight was relaxed, smiling Aloha. Getting us in the frame of mind for Hawaii. Really liked our seats, just the two of us on the outside row. No 3 across."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "We need wheelchair service and the porters were first rate. The airline was more than accommodating, offered a free lunch and you can either order new movies on demand for $7.99 each or watch unlimited TV and older movies for $7.99 (which I did). I liked the value."
Cons: "Drink prices are steep."

Pros: "Love the fact that they served complimentary lunch on the plane. It's a perk you don't get anymore on flights. It was a great surprise. Also, there were 4 of us traveling but one person bought her ticket later so her seat was away from us. Without our asking, by the time we got to the gate, they had moved her to sit on the same row with us. The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice if they offered some of the tv shows for free. I understand paying for movies but tv should be complimentary. And as with most planes, it felt cramped once the person in front of me let his seat back."

Pros: "We were Platinum so we could use the Premier Club room."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Service, aircraft, food, complimentary glass of wine"

Pros: "Non stop flight, better leg room than most airlines"
Cons: "No freeentertainment to speak of"

Pros: "Excellent seats! Friendly flight attendant and lots of snacks plus a gift bag."
Cons: "A little bumpy"

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth"
Cons: "The free entertainment is very poor"

Pros: "Crew was very mice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Hawaiian has great schedules"
Cons: "Way way way too many screaming infants and toddlers. I'd pay more for a flight w all 13 and over pax"

Pros: "service is excellent. Airline personnel very accommodating, very helpful especially for seniors. I'll fly with them again."

Pros: "The crew were very professional. The food was delicious."

Pros: "The crew was knowledgable, professional and curtious to all on board."
Cons: "We left 45 min late."

Pros: "Great service, plane was very clean."
Cons: "No vegan or vegetarian special meal options. Plane was TOO cold!"

Pros: "I dropped my wallet just outside the terminal gate boarding the plane and a very handsome steward, introduced by his co-stewardesses as "Pretty Boy Brandon" was kind enough to find me to return my wallet. I appreciated all the kindness recieved by the entire staff at Hawaiian Airlines. Thank you for offering genuine customer service."

Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. Excellent customer service and the pilot did a great job of updating us with the flight schedule, tour guide swag, and the weather."
Cons: "No comment."

Pros: "Boarded on time, Fight attendants positive attitude."
Cons: "Did not take off on time. Landed 50 minutes late. Food (pasta dish) tasted like reheated TV dinner with pasta stuck together in one large reheated mess. Everything is a la carte. On a flight that was over six hours, each movie was 7.99. Two movies,two people, adds up. On Alaska Air, you rent a small entertainment unit (like an iPad) for one fee and watch several movies throughout the flight."

Pros: "Compared to Alaska Air, Hawaiian was way better."

Pros: "The statistics of where we were and when to arrive on the screen. Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight changed from Alaska to Hawaiian airlines in San Diego. They were in different terminals way to close in time to each other. We had to leave security and go back through tsa to get to the connecting flight and missed boarding. We got to the gate at 10:05 with a flight of 10:15. They knew we were coming but still have our seats away. They told us that they couldn't delay the flight and let us on the plane. We had to wait 24 hours for the next flight with no way to get anywhere and no hotel. We slept in the airport and had to go through security again just to get to our flight. Once we boarded and were seated the gangway moved away from the plane. We waited and then the gangway came back to the plane and 4 passengers were taken off the flight. How can they delay the flight to take people off but not to let us on the plane the previous day?! My mother was born in Hawaii and our family was going to get birth place where she lived and I missed that opportunity because they wouldn't let us board because it would delay the flight. It would have delayed a 6 hour fligh for 10 minutes. Our luggage made it on the flight but we didn't. I'm extremely disappointed in the way it was handled by the ticket counter agents."

Pros: "The seats are better than anything I've experienced in the cattle car, which doesn't make them great, and the leg room was OK (I'm 6"). I was pleased to find out they included a meal for free, as I hadn't bought anything to eat for the 5 1/2 hr flight. Overall a better than average flight, and it was on time."

Cons: "3 hour delay meant no train was given a voucher that didn't cover the fare I would have plane leave Hawaii earlier so 300people are left to sleep in the terminal until train runs again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "$200 change fee..."

Pros: "First class seating"
Cons: "How short the flight was. Wish I had more time to enjoy first class"

Pros: "I like having a meal with a free glass of wine."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay for a blanket."

Pros: "Friendly, welcoming crew."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "Amazing crew very good service ."
Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."

Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."

Pros: "Crew, exit row seat"
Cons: "Bathroom"

Pros: "Crew and plane are great"

Cons: "Boarding took a long time"

Pros: "Great flight"

Cons: "Boarding the plane was a hassle as well as delays to Clean up and fix seat belts. Very u coordinated crew as well no one paying attention to what one was doing."

Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "Nothing more to say!"

Pros: "Departing"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"

Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "No will fi"

Pros: "Movies, baggage price, snacks, friendly! And check carry on when full fir free"

Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."

Pros: "Are usually fly international, and I really enjoy it. Flying domestic inside the US is bad because you never know when you will get flight delays, like we got. It wasn’t the fault of Delta, but it sucked."
Cons: "Small seeds, no food, the flight delay"

Pros: "Great crew on board!"

Pros: "Courteous staff."

Cons: "They charged $300 for 3 bags"

Pros: "On time. Good customer service. Easy route, no hassles."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."
Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"

Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"
Cons: "It didn't fly fast enough. Jk. Not much to say"

Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."

Pros: "Flight attrndants on delta are mostly ok-- but there are several with bad attitudes who cannot communicate They will just point at things and mumble incoherently with incomplete sentences They will not turn there hips when walking down the aisle to avoid hitting people & they"
Cons: "Flight attendants are miserable"

Pros: "What is the issue?"

Cons: "They delayed the takeoff because of catering, really over a half hour because you wanted to sell more sandwiches. So you make us late and the poor people who had connecting flight, it just does not make sense."

Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"

Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"

Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"

Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"

Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."

Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."

Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"

Pros: "Very easy flight & process"

Pros: "Liked the entertainment option. I was able to watch most of a movie on the first flight, then pick up the end on the second. B737-900 ER is a nice plane"
