Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Nothing it’s was great"
Cons: "Alaska is unreliable. You either have an hour and a half+ delay, to wait on the tarmac after landing for 25+ minutes bc another Alaska plane is in your spot, they change your seat on you at the last second, break your suitcase, etc. All these things happened to me in the last 4 days w/ Alaska."
Cons: "The flight to San Diego was late. The flight back to SFO was also late. Never flying Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Friendly crew, comfortable for a short flight. Timely departure and arrival."
Cons: "Schedule change. Flight was cancelled and replaced with one 3 hrs earlie, which strained my schedule quite a bit."
Pros: "People were friendly and super helpful."
Pros: "good, free movies"
Cons: "couldn't get on standby for earlier flight because of my "cheap" ticket. I didn't know this until I got to the gate 5 hours early. I understand it was probably obvious somewhere when I bought the ticket, but it was a bit irritating."
Cons: "We ended up missing our flight. No information was given regarding the terminal and gate for our flight. Even when checking in online, we had no direction where to go. In San Diego, Alaska is terminal one. We walked in and asked the lady at the Alaska desk if we had everything correct and she quickly pushed us along. After going through security we were unable to find our flight info. We asked multiple workers who did not know. We asked a rep for another flight who told us we needed to go to the other terminal. We ran to the other terminal, went through security again and looked for our flight. This terminal had zero Alaska identification and no one could tell us where our flight was. After combing though the entire second terminal looking on the flight deck for any Alaska planes, we saw none. Ready to give up, we finally found the gate which was not one of the standard gates. We run over with 7 minutes left and are told the door is closed and there's nothing they can do. We rehash the entire story and the ladies at the desk rather than express empathy for our situation, question the validity of our story to which I asked the lady to please come with us to show us how we are wrong. She later informed us that Alaska was moving terminals and was only partially moved (hence the lack of signage). They booked us a flight 4 hours later. Luckily, we found our own flight on another airline and we were completely satisfied with United and their ability to fit us onboard with seconds to spare. I will add that Alaska's twitter service team was far more helpful than anyone in the actual airport."
Pros: "They did find for us another flight at no extra fee. An agent stayed with us on the line to the bitter end, it took some 3 hours on the phone to sort it out."

I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait.

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was a short flight. Didn’t dislike anything other than paying for TV/movies."
Cons: "Not only was boarding delayed almost 2 hours. Once we were on the plane, we sat on the tarmac for over an hour. We landed in SFO at 12:45 and missed my connector to Bend. United was not willing to do anything for me for the inconvenience (except hand out blankets)...so I slept in the airport until the next available flight at 8 a.m. the next more...I hope."

Pros: "They gave us free tv since we had to wait so long and they made us wait for an hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "We had a connecting flight from San Francisco that we missed due to their delays. We still don't know why it was delayed. They didnt give a clear or concise reason for the delays. Our flight landed a few minutes before our connecting flight departed and instead of holding the plane like they have done in other reviews I've read they actually took off early. We were automatically given tickets to the next flight out to our final destination (which was 6 hours later.) This was sucky but we didn't have control over it so we dealt with it. However when we went to customer service to print our new tickets we were "greeted" with two apathetic employees. The first one we didn't actually get to interact with because after waiting in line for 10 minutes when it was finally our turn he held his hand up to stop us from walking up to the counter and just left. No explanation just headed out. So we headed over to the "premier" line for a procedure that should literally take 3 minutes to interact with the next employee who made it somehow our fault that we were mildly upset with the situation. My father always told me United "sucks" we gave them a chance but we should have heeded his fatherly advice. Oh and a bonus my traveling partner has a broken pelvis so sitting around for hours on end was just salt to the wound."
Pros: "I am lucky to check-in earlier with United, staffs at counter is very nice and courtesy, he was able to book an earlier flight so I could catch up on time with my scheduled flight to China, I was boarding the United 9:45 but its departure was roughly around 11:15 am"
Cons: "Flight delay that could affect my international flight connection Which I had only 1:05 between flight"
Pros: "Easy on ! Organized"
Cons: "I paid $50 extra for a flight to leave at 5 instead of 8 and they ended up so late that the cheaper flight left before we did. Overbooked and packed to the point of immobility."
Pros: "Friendly, cheerful cabin crew."
Cons: "If I wanted to check my bag I wouldn't have dragged it through the airport. Boarding was a mess. Too many people put both their personal item and their bag up top. The whole boarding process stopped when people with bags there was no space for ran into people trying to get to the back of the plane. It was stuck still for a good five minutes while we figured out how to un-jam the space. I blame airline policies that discourage checking a bag, at any weight. I really dislike gate checking a bag."
Pros: "The staff were very freindly"
Cons: "They had a setup if you wanted to watch a movie you had to log onto your computer or other device, but you had to down load the United airlines app, but my IPad would not connect to download."
Cons: "From flight attendants who shouted, rather than help sort out seat assignments, to repeatedly announcing the luggage was on the empty, stopped carousel 4 when it was really over on 2, the service on the red eye was irritating from start to finish."
Cons: "Didn't happen"
Pros: "Your reminders!"
Pros: "The employees."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "the rest"
Pros: "Bad weather caused my flights to be re-routed, but United did wonderful in arranging for an similar arrival time to my final destination. I am very grateful for that. I can't judge the airline on something they have no control over."
Cons: "The bad weather that caused my flights to be re-routed!"
Pros: "Everything was quick and convenient! No hassles! Smooth sailing"
Pros: "We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Bathroom is too small. Announcements were anxiety inducing. Sick people on the airplane spreading germs."
Cons: "On my flight back during taking off, I was throwing a trash away into a little bag that is also designed for vomiting. When I pushed a trash into the bag, I felt that it was already wet. Somebody vomited into it at the previous flight and placed it back to the seat's packet. I am not telling that it was the cleaning crew's mistake because it looked like unused until I pushed my hand into it, but it was still a very unpleasant experience and could be also a health hazard."
Pros: "Missed connection in SF to Medford due to other planes at our gate not allowing us to de-board on time to make my connection to Medford ...!!"
Pros: "The United Club Lounge is the best."
Pros: "Pre-check was fast Ride was pleasant Crew friendly."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Everything, except one thing"
Cons: "Little kid screaming the whole flight, kicking my seat. Parent threatened me and yelled at me."
Cons: "They did not let my daughter board to safely get home to my mother because she was to tall for a two year old and even after they were provided a birth certificate they still gave her seat up and wouldn't put her on a plane home until I bought another ticket. I am military I only flew with united because we have a contract with them"
Pros: "We were making an emergency trip to S.F. and everything thing was on time."
Cons: "Though we travel on United and have a United card the price of getting a last minute flight on a plane that was almost half empty was absurd. We will rent a car to return home."
Cons: "the whole experience was horrible."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Plane was really noisy and made a weird noise during takeoff and landing. Sad thing was I had to board the saw plane from San Francisco to St. Louis as well!"
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "Seats, lines, late"
Pros: "Plane leaving SFO never showed. Airlines called for a replacement plane 4 hours after scheduled dep time. Never using United again if it can be helped."

Pros: "I was content"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me"
Pros: "I saw a really good sunset"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time."
Cons: "Spicy snack. Same snack on all 4 legs of our trip"
Cons: "My flight got delayed almost two hours and nothing to was offered like it's very normal to be delayed"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Cons: "crew members could have been friendlier"
Pros: "flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "-The service at the gate was really slow and really rude. They tried to convince me that my bag was too big for the overhead and wouldn't be able to go on the flight, even though it fit easily into their test bin, and when I got on, there was PLENTY of room for everyones bag. -The seats were really narrow. More narrow than other airlines. -The back of seat video monitors don't turn off, and if you want to watch them, it's expensive. So basically, you're inundated with ads the entire flight. -there wasn't full drink service on my flight, and not everyone was offered the same thing. some people got juice, the rest of us just got water."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the pilot kept us well informed on our flight."
Cons: "I didn't like how the tv screens flashed from one screen to another throughout the whole flight. I would have just liked them off. The other thing was one of the stewardesses walked up and down the isle like a bull in a china shop. She hit my shoulder at least 4 times as she walked by and never slowed down."
Pros: "Every time the winds shift south they get delayed or cancel flights to smaller airports."
Cons: "Multiple gate shifts, lack of communication with customer. Blaming flight cancellation on weather at destination when that wasn't the case at all. Geez don't lie it's not necessary! Had to take flight to Portland extra two hours of ground travel. No reimbursement. Weather issue you can't blame us. Funny the 737 had no issues departing SFO to PDX."
Pros: "Cheap, you travel from point A to point B"
Cons: "They don't even serve water!"
Cons: "The change of flights. Had to stay in airport overnight!"
Cons: "Everything is an upcharge - carryon, a seat that reclines, etc."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for a gate"
Pros: "Friendly attitude"
Cons: "Should be an agent helping people in line at ticket counter. More ticket counter agents."
Cons: "took 5 flights on a XC trip in two weeks. 4 of the 5 flights were late/delayed."
Pros: "the low fares"
Cons: "the delays and carry on charges"

Cons: "trash airline"
Cons: "Seat extremely uncomfortable for a person my height (6') and not adjustable in any way. Not a ton of leg room either, though not noticeably less legroom than other airlines."
Pros: "Delay for too long. It took so long after landing! What are the ground crews doing?"
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
