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."

I had to re-enter all my information again."

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

Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."

Cons: "Seats too narrow...would like to see wider seats to be included when you pay a premium for leg room"

Pros: "Honestly. Nothing."
Cons: "Internet was down and no entertainment on a transcontinental flight. That’s absurd. Overhead luggage packing was not regulated so made intentionally difficult. Assignment of bags to be checked should be based on size not who is last. Grossly disappointed with service"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"

Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."

Cons: "delayed/not on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, bumpy and staff didn’t look for headphones"

Pros: "Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "Pilot's skill level and ability - lots of maneuvering and a very poor landing"

Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"

Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"

Cons: "The crew looked very bored."

Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Not accessible. The tv wasn’t captioned"

Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."

Pros: "Flight was great. Seats were roomy and comfortable. There was a free in flight movie. It was easy to go to the restroom."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful and friendly, the seats are so comfortable and the free tv is such a perk!"
Cons: "I wish the flight crew could more strongly enforce the storage issue. When I have to check my bag, adding another 40 mins to my airport experience, because someone puts their purse in the overhead storage it peeves me a bit."

Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."

Pros: "Flight was pretty much what you'd expect, pretty basic"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight I woulda been nice to have more than just two cookies for a snack. Luckily I brought me own. Also there's no entertainment except for 1 magazine, so again, if you're flying American you better supply yourself with whatever you'll want before boarding"

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Cons: "Fat ads sitting next to me should have purchased 2 seats"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The people seated to the left and right of me."
Cons: "United 'nickel and dimes' you for everything. Baggage, but the worst is the space between rows. Just horribly uncomfortable. Money hungry corporate greed. $7.99 for the equivalent of an Egg McMuffin. You think the big airlines would learn from Southwest airlines. I'll avoid United as much as I can in the future."
