Airline reviews

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "45 minute delay pilot said it was because a lot of planes fly into Seattle. The plane was obviously late coming into San diego. 3 day old tuna can smell in airplane. No food. I hate this airlines."

Cons: "Only negative was we were Early and our gate wasn’t ready and we sat on the runway for over 20 minutes"

Pros: "Flights were on time--thank you!"
Cons: "I wish the gate wouldn't change from boarding pass to actual boarding--especially if the change is far apart (a C gate to an N gate). I landed in N, went to C because that's what my pass said, had to run back to N because it changed. Drink service seems very slow--either a new system is slow or did you used to start more carts? It's frustrating when you're thirsty and the cart is right in front of you but still takes 15 min to get to you."

Pros: "Very accommodating staff at the gate, helped move a seat on a full flight to help get my to the front on a tight window for a connecting flight."

Pros: "The flight was great and comfortable"

Pros: "Flight was fine and on time."

Pros: "Friendly staff, quick to get on the plane after a long wait in the security line. TSA is very inefficient in SAN."
Cons: "The cabin crew didn’t let us know we got free drinks on the premium seating area. Hey should invite us proactively to order our drinks. The menu does not contain info on what is included on the premium seating purchased. The seats are too narrow."

Cons: "Bag did not arrive at arrival gate and was late"

Cons: "Didn't like running out of fuel and being rerouted to Palm Springs to refuel. Why didn't they fill up before leaving Seattle for San Diego on Wed. Dec. 27th? I am claustrophobic and hearing the news that we were low on fuel was the worst for me. Then they didn't even offer some bonus flight for the fuel oversight. Dale Bunge PO Box 572 Monroe, WA 98272."

Pros: "I like the internet for text being free, and staff is nice."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit backwards. They board by zones with the front of the plane going first, so if you're in the back you get stuck in the aisles waiting for these people to sit down. They should board the back of the plane first."

Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."

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.

Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."

Cons: "We paid extra to be able to pick our seat ahead of time but when we got there we were told that in the first leg of our trip the flight was oversold and therefore we didn't have seat assignments anymore.

Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service.

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

Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN.

Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA.

It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."

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."

Flight was canceled and they put me on different plane, which make my day in San Diego very difficult, because I miss my meeting, I didn't get better seat ither,instead I got seat in front of toilet and for 3 hours have to listen door bunging and terrible smell. I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Pros: "I love that they fly out of smaller airports. I feel like the crew is kind and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable but luckily most of the flights are not too long."

Pros: "Crew was friendly but did not enforce wearing of masks and deplaning was chaotic to say the least with everyone pushing to get off the plane"
Cons: "Enforce the airline’s own policy of wearing masks. About 1/4 of the passengers of the waiting to get on the plane at PIE did not wear a mask in the terminal, even though it is the policy of the airport. Chaotic deplaning in BNA with all passengers rushing to the front of the plane trying to get off. Rock hard very narrow seats."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. The aisle was nice and wide which makes walking to seats easier"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats"

Cons: "First class"

Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"

Pros: "Crew nice. Seat okay"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Built in headrests on the seats."

Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."

Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"

Pros: "Crew was good, quite friendly and helpful. Seats are a bit uncomfortable but what airline isn't."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Hsve to pay for drinks & snacks"

Pros: "Timing was good"
Cons: "Not a glass of water was offered. Who wants alcohol in the morning?"

Pros: "I have never experienced this before. You stand in line to get a tag for your bag. Then you stand in line to check your bag. Then you stand in a Disney style HUGE line just to get to the escalator to take you to the second floor so you can go through security. Thank goodness for TSA precheck! That line was long but not very long like the other line."

Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Cons: "Hour delay on flight"

Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"

Pros: "Availability at last minute was awesome, and the price was excellent. The direct flight was great too!"
Cons: "No frills... no peanuts!"

Pros: "Standard no frills airline"
Cons: "No room for overhead bags near my seat. I paid $25 to sit up front and $35 for a carry on. I paid extra with the goal of deplaining first. Crew refused to allow me to stow the bags in the front bin, had to place it 10 rows back. If I didn’t run to my gags as soon as Wen landed would have been the last to deplane. If allegiant is going to charge so much for carry on, they need to find a way so front passengers are not squeezed out like this."

Pros: "The entire crew we're so accommodating and Robin was hilarious, made the hassle of traveling enjoyable and entertaining."

Pros: "I liked that they had a direct flight from Los Angeles to Bellingham."
Cons: "The delays were horrendous and a google search reveals this to be so common it makes me wonder if it's not part of their business model. Like, so bad I ended up booking a return flight on Alaska and just ate the extra $300."

Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"

Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."

Pros: "Price of flight and it was non stop to Fort Wayne, IN."

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Well-priced. Good seat spacing and aisle size, good atmosphere. Easy to find overhead storage and boarding is quite fast and well organised."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The fight"
Cons: "Security"

Cons: "My return flight was rescheduled for a day later."

Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"

Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"

Pros: "On time. Easy boarding and off loading. Nice staff"
Cons: "The seat. The people. The drinks. The efficiency. The price."

Pros: "Nothing about it at all"
Cons: "I didn't like the turbalance on the plane I didn't like the service check in line Need more people helping in the airport"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Bought two tickets, I had to pay more to sit with my wife. Seats don't recline. Endless emails before the flight telling me to pay for my carry ons."

Pros: "Crew always smiled"

Cons: "Free food was lacking for a 5 hr flight. Pretzels and a pack of cookies."

Pros: "Lots of leg room!"

Cons: "Naplaćene su mi torbe u San Diego po 58$ iako je to bilo uračunato u cenu pri kupovini karata !!! Za torbu od22kg(48),i torbu od15kg 116$! Nije korektno!!!! Brukaaa!!!Sramota!!Nikad više sa tom compani!! Never again!!!! Never!!!!"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, smooth ride"
Cons: "Again 30 minute delay to get internet working. At least this time they communicated the issue."

Pros: "The flight was very good and no problems were encountered."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Leg room was good in economy plus but no entertainment. Flight ran on time though."
Cons: "WiFi was broken and only refreshments offered! No meals for purchase only snack boxes that were horrible."

Pros: "Short and sweet no problem"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was quite average, nothing special.They severed some drinks and you get a bag of pretzels. The staff was very friendly and nice. It was only a 1 1/2 flight, so the only entertainment is magazines."
Cons: "The legroom was fine for me, but if you are about 6ft tall or over, you will feel a little cramped. Try to get an exit row seat if can."

Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"

Pros: "Flight was on time and luggage was not lost. In flight meal service was better than average."
Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."

Cons: "United and SAS are really separate and hard to manage reservation. Seats changed from what I purchased and it was uncomfortable. I don't think I will do a mixed airline flight again even though they quote them as a Star Aliance. Also, flying through Chicago ORD is not great. The international terminal is completely separate so you have to take a train, pour out water, enter security (and they don't have a TSA Pre). All around uggh."

Pros: "This reflects first leg flight from San Fran to Chicago."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable"

Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"

Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and that's really all that matters. The crew was great."
Cons: "Don't know why we have to pay for entertainment. It used to be free."

Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."

Pros: "Soda"
Cons: "The fact that they lost my luggage for the second time."

Pros: "Smooth and plenty of juice and soda."
Cons: "I've never really felt cramped on a plane before this trip but maybe I'm fatter?"

Pros: "Entertainment is pretty slick."
Cons: "Boarding process, crew was not pleasant, late getting the jet bridge to the plane. You know there are multiple 40-50 minute connections, but you take 15 minutes to get the jet bridge. Flight was "on time" I'm sure according to your stats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was awfuli it was a terrible experience.Nobody could tell me what was going on. I was to arrive in Seattle at around 6.15 pm "but " I did not arrive till 10.30 pm. I got home at 1.45 am wed morning"

Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The video screen could not be turned off and kept waking me up, bad on an overnight flight."

Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "United Airlines has one job, to move people from one location to the next. I'm concerned that United thinks it's in the data transfer business or the package hauling business or some kind of "gotcha' Internet business. There were never enough people at United to help me with my problem. Those real human employees that I found were mostly overworked, over regimented and procedure focused."

Pros: "Friendly stewardist"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for close to four hours. Staff at the airport did not keep us updated about the flight changes. Nothing was offered to passengers as compensation for our missed family activities, wasted time away from out loved ones, etc. This is my first time flighting with United Airlines and I did not have a good experience."

Pros: "That being said, I liked that they has Moscow Mules for purchase. The gate agent was very kind & helped check my husbands bag as the overhead bin space was full. The crew was fine."
Cons: "My first beef with United is that I needed to change my flight 36 hours after purchasing it & wanted a 200.00 change fee for a 79.00 flight, it was more cost effective to purchase a new ticket to with another airline than change my ticket. Silly really."

Pros: "Smaller plane! Easy board, quick flight"
Cons: "Seats are packed in, no wifi, arrived way early sat on tar mat no fresh air my chest was hurting from the smell of jet fumes until we finally pulled into a gate!"

Pros: "Nice crew ,on time , no extra fee for carry on and drinks. Over all comfortable. I will fly United again !!!!!"

Cons: "Waiting for 3 hrs past boarding time for crew to arrive. Waiting on plane for 11/2 for plane to b de iced. Waiting for crew to get permission to fly because they went past hrs to fly"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was charged 25.00 for luggage both ways which I wasn't told in advance.Also sat in airport a long time before being told my flight was cancelled and it was last flight.My daughter was by her self and didn't have money.She ask them could they put her in hotel and they told her no only discount.My daughter then told them she had no money and the clerk was very rude and told her well that's all they were going to do.At that point my daughter called me upset and crying because they didn't tell her prior and was rude about it.She do not fly and I had just had surgery and I could not go to her grand mother funeral with her.I had to call around to see if anyone knew someone in New Orleans to go get her for the night.My sister friend ended up picking her up 2hr later and she didn't know her but we had no choice cause her aunt had already left to go back home.It was a very upsetting situation and very stressful.I travel alot and I flew with this airlines before years ago and it was fine.Very disappointed about this whole trip."

Cons: "The fact that they kept delaying it by 30 minute intervals for four hours until eventually it was cancelled. Oh and now the new flight is delayed 30 minutes."

Pros: "On time, good flight from travel time prospective"
Cons: "Tight seating, mix up on seating, no overhead lighting during the flight"
