They were on time. Staff was professional and pleasant. Allowed me to have a carry on and select my seat. Very reasonable cost. Easy online check on and sms reminders. Will fly with them again.

Pros: "Service and overall cleanliness etc. was very smooth, good and clean. I sat in seat 1A both ways and as the first person to get on and off the flight found the process well laid out, easy, clean and smooth. I also got to witness the boarding process from inside while seated. Very professional and courteous all the way. The first class cabin was sparsely filled with ample space between us and based on how many people I saw getting on, I think the rear cabin must've been sparsely filled as well. More on the comfort aspect in the "what would have been bettter section" ... in short, the seats are the weakest link in the chain."
Cons: "My only gripe is about the seats fitted in first class for this Alaska Air leg (JFKSFO). Like most, my travel frequency has dropped so much that I can finally afford to pay full fare first for the few times I do need to travel. I expect that this will more likely be the norm than not and hope/expect that more among us who can afford to pay extra for the additional comfort, do so. The airline industry will need to keep that segment to get ahead of this seismic shift in travel patterns that 2020 has brought upon all of us. I was hoping to just sleep through it. I normally sleep well/easily on flights (at times, "too well"!) but could not do so on this leg. The seats in first class are just not meant for sleeping and are thus limited in their positioning ... brief napping is the best you can do - carry your entertainment/work or plan on meditating while fully awake. The base is for all intent and purposes, immovable (maybe a couple of inches back and forth at best). There is no concept of a foot rest in the design. The back locks into one of two positions - a vertical one for take-off/landing and a second one tilted about 15 degrees or so. That makes it impossible to stretch the body out while fully supported - so hard to go into relaxed/deep sleep for those who wish to do so. The front passenger seat of a common car offers more for a five hour road trip - something to ponder on, eh? Upgrade the seats ...the extra investment will pay for itself quickly in this age of reduced travel as you'll attract more of those who are lucky to be able to pay a little more to fly in comfort for the few times that they need to. Additionally, sleeping passengers are often the easiest/cheapest to service!"
Pros: "The crew was good. The problem was our Qantas flight from Auckland New Zealand, to Sydney, Australia, to San Francisco, to Seattle didn't sync with Alaska Air. We arrived in San Francisco after a very long flight. We had gotten our boarding passes in Auckland. When we went to board in SF, there was a glitch and they wouldn't let us board. It took a long time to get that fixed. We missed our flight (with our luggage on it), and had to wait several more hours. Plus Alaska Air had cancelled a flight mid morning and the trickle down result was many people were stuck and waiting on flights. Then we had to wait for a crew to come, then they found something wrong with the plane so had to get in a new plane. It was a long and hard day for everyone."
Cons: "I don't know how you sync airline tickets but if they had synced as they were supposed to, none of this would have happened."
Cons: "Waiting on one way too long. More than 1hr"
Cons: "reservation changes were not communicated well and kept changing"
Cons: "This was an old aircraft with very uncomfortable seats (even in first). Was not worth paying for the upgrade, especially for a red-eye."
Cons: "I love Alaska"
Cons: "WIFI was not working"
Pros: "The new seats are great - outlets and usb ports that actually work and seats that are comfortable. While I like having the entertainment screens provided, since I had a nice device to watch films, it was very pleasant. A couple of good films were available."
Cons: "I don't understand why the people who get seats in the rear of the plane have to board last. Not only do they have the discomfort of waiting to get on the plane and sitting in the back, but there is no room for carry on luggage by the time they get on. It seems like a double whammy."
Pros: "Everything was superb! The airline I prefer did a great job! The seats, the food selections, the staff - everything!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect!"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was clean and updated, the in-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "On both of my Alaska Airlines flights we took off later than scheduled, by over 15 minutes. It could have been due to the congestion at LAX. And the seats were comfortable if not a little cramped. I also wish we would have been offered adult beverages on my late flight into SFO -- helps for sleep."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "At ponta delgada and my bags are no where to be found"
Cons: "No worthy"
Cons: "I was not notified that my card was declined and this caused a ton of delays"
Cons: "The plane was amazingly cramped."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, and the seating were uncomfortably hard. Seat pitch weren’t as great. Mood lighting were nice."
Cons: "More comfortable seat, offer a meal service since it is “transcontinental”."
Pros: "One flight attendant was incredible! I dropped something and she helped me find it."
Cons: "Once getting on the flight we sat for an hour, the seats were very Uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and plane was quite empty"
Cons: "Take off got delayed (not in Alaska Airlines' control though), but all in all a very pleasant flight."
Pros: "Yes."
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Service. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Alaska has utterly ruined Virgin’s first class experience, and the food is garbage."
Pros: "Would have been a great flight overall except...."
Cons: "Three flight attendants were socializing loudly to the point that it disrupted us from sleeping on an overnight flight. We had to ask THEM to keep it down. You’d think it would be the other way around on a red eye. Even after that they keep blabbering at the top of their voices! Surprised how inconsiderate they were. And yet, despite their gift of gab, they couldn’t make coherent announcements over the speaker. Food has two stars only because there was nothing to rate."
Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."
Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."
Pros: "Crews were helpful. Flights were on time. Snacks were good."
Cons: "The screen says to Portland but it was actually for a Los Angeles flight. I almost boarded in the wrong flight."
Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 45 minutes"
Pros: "Everyone is so nice. Easy & reasonable price."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "free drinks"
Cons: "Slow and disorderly boarding at SFO"
Pros: "Arriving at destination"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90 minutes and there was very little communication regarding why. It would have been less frustrating if we knew the reason for the delay."
Pros: "The entertainment is great on Alaska."
Cons: "The flight got delayed a number of times, until it was 1:30 late. Then, since I have medical problems, and I was freezing (despite a sweater and a coat, I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and explained why, and she said flatly that there were no blankets on board. Just a terrible terrible red eye."
Pros: "Great attitude of crew. Very pleasant and attentive. Made the best of their way to take care of everything"
Cons: "Might want to look into refurbishment of the aircraft at some point soon. Lots of thing S worn out or not working"
Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."
Cons: "We only had one drink for a 5 hour flight! Took two hours until we were finally able to get a glass of water."
Pros: "The crew were great, security at the airport took over an hour to get through so I arrived at the gate 10minsbefire takeoff. The crew were great in getting me on board and checking my luggage was still there t"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Ran out of food VERY early Late out of the gate, later landing Old Virgin America cramped plane"
Pros: "Plane was a little warm, air didn’t work great, also delayed on the runway for about 45 minutes before takeoff"
Cons: "They delay on the runway"
Pros: "Had my bags in an incredible 10 minutes"
Pros: "Terminal 2 in SF is great...whole vibe plus food and seating options are top top...SeaTac needs to up their game feels makes it feels like a food court at a subpar mall."
Cons: "Wish there was in seat inflight entertainment like Virgin America."
Pros: "The attendant who helped me was extremely helpful in arranging for me to be on the next flight to Portland, out of San Jose. She called and arranged for a shuttle to pick me up in San Francisco and bring me to San Jose at no cost, and provided me with a flex ticket so that if I missed the next flight I could be on the subsequent one. (I did in fact make it -- just barely -- onto the 11:15 flight out of San Jose, so when all was said and done I landed in Portland about three hours later than originally planned. As it was a very short trip, I'm quite glad that I only lost the time that I did.) Thank you, Diane (Diana?), for all your help."
Cons: "I had originally been scheduled for an 8:45 am flight out of San Francisco. As I was leaving for the airport at 6:30 I received a text saying that my flight had been delayed until 10:08. I ended up arriving at the airport around 9:00 and making it over to the service desk around 9:20, at which point I was told by one of the attendants that the flight had left at 9:18 and I should have been at the airport two hours early. There was no acknowledgment by this particular attendant that I had been given wrong information by the airline that had resulted in my missing the flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "it made it on time.... we travel / fly a lot. First time with Alaskan an was far from impressed"
Cons: "All out of food... morning flight an no warning or anything g. We could have ran an got something before boarding started .... they drive the cart by with what I guess... the only 2 options of each category for the first 10 people... to then say... o sorry we have nothing.. An no compensation for it but sorry.... do u a humus pack for 8 bucks.... then one second later when my wife decides she wants it... they say they just gave away the last one... it was redic. Not to mention weren't even all the way in the back Glad to see a few people up front able to eat..."
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Fairly pleasant other than things listed below."
Cons: "Seats couldn't recline and had little leg room, no complimentary entertainment, no complimentary food."
Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."
Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the professionalism the ticket people at the counter. they were very helpful and very pleasant. I like both alaska airlines and virgin America. I never have a problem when I fly with them."
Cons: "the only thing that was unpleasant was my boyfriend was missing a phone charger and some cigars out of his suitcase. it must of happened through customs or the baggage handling."
Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"

Entertainment screen in seat 9f not working

Flight was supposed to go at 8:50PM. Last minute it got delayed until 5:30AM

Everything was orderly and easy going. Was worried reading about all the bad behaved passengers, but crew was kind but stern in their warnings. Anyway, all was as I had hoped.

Pros: "Amazing the Mint class"
Pros: "Everything is great like always!"
Pros: "Love extra leg room"
Cons: "Salty snack and a sweet snack. Both were sweet."
Pros: "The crew was on it and friendly. Nice drink and snack service. Very comfortable."
Pros: "It was our first time on Jet Blue. We had heard great things about them in the past. Everything we heard was true. We will definitely fly Jet Blue much mire often in the future!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and nice."
Cons: "They had to reset entertainment sets 3 times before they started working. This happens regularly on the SFO to BOS jetblue flight."
Cons: "Sold out of the food I wanted. Massive delay."
Pros: "The courtesy of the crew"
Cons: "I know it's not they're fault but if like to not have others delays on my future flights"
Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Not many kid friendly videos."
Pros: "There was actual room for my legs."
Cons: "There could have been more legroom so that you could actually get out without almost sitting in someone else's lap. But it was easier than my last flight (on American Airlines). Having a meal available would have been nice on a flight of almost 6 hours."
Pros: "Fully Reclining seats, better than any USA first class. Puts everyone's food to shame."
Cons: "Chocolate ice cream instead of black cherry! Lol"
Cons: "Entertainment screen in our section of the plane were not functioning correctly. The crew made several attempts to reset the screens but it didn't work,"
Pros: "Each seat had power outlet for laptop as well as a USB port"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Entertainment was not as good as other airlines provide."
Pros: "Nice polite and helpful crew! Nice flight!"
Cons: "Only 1 snack and a beverage for a 5:30 hour flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Booked to travel with others and return flight itinerary was changed prior to our trip. Friends have to wait longer at airport and we now have to leave earlier. Outbound plane broke and we ended up leaving 3 hours late. Updates were poor and we were left wondering what was happening. Got to our destination at 3am. Given a $75 credit that can only be used for future tickets. Why not for baggage or seat upgrades? Not planning to fly this airline any time soon."
Cons: "Full flight... out of food for sale by row 18 ?!?!? WTF is that??? It happens every single time, and I travel JB 5+ times a year. Didn't hear a single announcement flight was boarding early (after extremely long delays). The Gate next to mine was shouting updates every 60 seconds."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly crew members who made it a very enjoyable flight"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The flight was really comfortable and arrived warly"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Almost too good."
Pros: "experienced pilot, frequent attention by flight staff, coach seat comfort, flight was less than 5 hours, flight was on time, comfort in airport while waiting"
Pros: "Easy and comfortable. No issues. Got there without a problem."
Pros: "Entertainment was great with many options and WiFi included."
Cons: "I think it is time for US airlines to offer complementary meals, especially in a 6 hours flight across US! Just a small bag of chips for a 6 hours flight? European airlines offer full meal for a 2 hours flight..."
Pros: "It sure as hell wasn’t United. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww."
Cons: "Was chastened for grabbing cheez-itz from the pantry on my way off."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work"
Cons: "Entertainment system malfunctioned for much of flight."
Cons: "3 hour delay. No compensation. Typical airline scam"
Pros: "The snacks and the crew The entertainment was also good However internet service was slow"
Pros: "Hostess staff making all comfortable"
Cons: "Gates are way far from main entrance / exit ... not kids / senior friendly..."
Pros: "The flight was on time for take off and arrived early! Amazing. I actually got to sleep."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I liked the beverage options and my neighbors."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Movies for free"
Cons: "The one hour delay"
Pros: "JetBlue has comfy seats and is generous with snacks"
Cons: "Why on earth would you include BIRTH OF A NATION on the list of influght movies?! No one wants to be next to a seatmate watching that piece of racist garbage. I would have rated this flight 5 stars but seeing that in the streaming menu was upsetting and frustrating. This 2018. That movie should be reserved for watching in a historical context with commentary and analysis, not offered up to unwitting travelers as a perfectly ok thing to watch for entertainment. We don’t need more recruits to the kkk!!"
Cons: "Your airline is always late, always. One hour this time, longer than usual."
Pros: "The flight was scheduled to depart at 4:35pm, arriving in BOS at 1am. After nevereneding delays, we landed at 4:30am"
Cons: "Delays, poor communication and poor service by the airline."
Pros: "Very kind to change my flight because weather on the other end cancelled that flight."
Cons: "Reception on tv went on and off a few times."
Pros: "got in a bit early"
Cons: "screens were not working for the entire flight"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies. There were a number of Oscar nominated movies. The choices were great."
Cons: "This was a fairly long flight, and I wish there had been more robust food options. Or, I wish the process for ordering food had been more clear. This was my first time on a JetBlue flight, and I wasn't sure when to order."
Pros: "Free WiFi. Seat room, aircraft was new"
Cons: "Not much food offered. Just small snacks on a 5 hour flight"
Cons: "They want to charge for everything. Traveled with my husband but we couldn't sit together without having to pay $200. The seat assignment happened at the gate for us and they didn't accommodate our request to stay together. Seats were small, hard and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Every aspect perfect. Organized_generous leg room snacks and movies. Employees efficient (although this may be better than fake-happy tho) but perfect otherwise."
Pros: "The adequate legroom."
Pros: "Everything. It was a great experience. We have been flying frontier for last couple years and forgot what its like to sit on real seats, have snacks for free, entertainment and super great staff... Thanks! We will fly you again soon"

The terminal on my ticket was different than the gate number. We went through security and had to take a 15 min shuttle to a different terminal. Why not just go through security there? There were also no attendants at the gate to discuss seat assignments. My husband and I didn’t have seats together. Try on board crew was great, but the airport experience was lacking.

Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Wifi"
Pros: "Good organization, good hygiene, polite crew."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work"
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Cons: "They upgraded only my husband and split him up with the rest of our family. We were delayed and once we landed we got stuck in an active taxi way just because of poor arrangements from airport staff"
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Delta delayed us SEVEN times and I type this as we are rounding our 30th minute waiting to get off the plane at Logan."
Cons: "I was flying from CDG to LGD and my bag was lost, yet the baggage claim system showed it arrived...... Thankful I packed some essentials in my carry on. The bigger issue will be dealing with my medical insurance company to get medications replaced that were in the checked bag."
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Cons: "Lateness"
Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Cons: "Too crowded and seat mate stunk like pot , flight was good because we were 20 minutes late and flight crew very nice"
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."
Pros: "I was bowled over to learn in flight that the lowly steerage (economy) passengers--and everyone else had a selection of 3 complimentary meals! Who does that any more! Unfortunately, the only vegan option ran out just before my seat, but I was still amazed and pleased....and have ordered a vegan meal in advance for my next flight. Incredible! Plus, plenty of room for bags, good video selections, and power at all seats. I love Delta and will fly them more often!"
Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff at Delta was nice and courteous along with being clear for boarding zone instructions. Haven't had a problem yet with Delta! Also the pilot was great at landing so it was not as jerky as some flights I have been on."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"
Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Good selection of movies available, but right half of touch screen was broken..."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed almost 30 minutes for "baggage," but Delta still managed to leave many passengers' luggage in Amsterdam. Desk agent guaranteed baggage delivery within 24 hours. 4 days and 3 airports later, my bag reached my hotel. Fly Air France instead. The food is better and they won't lose your luggage."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Corn nuts for snack. I'm allergic to corn. I get people want snacks on a flight and you can't make everyone happy. It was ok. I just said no to them."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."

Quick and easy. Chairs are hard but short flight, so no problem. Crew smiled and were nice.

seat 3F broken in terms of recline, embarrassing for first class

I booked this reservation 2mo in advance with 2 lap babies. When i called to add the babies they never told me about the lap baby rule. If I would have known i would have bought my toddler her own seat no problem. They moved my seats far from each other. My babies need to sit near their mom it was a redeye. At check in the manager did us a “favor” and moved us to adjacent aisle seats… in the last row. Those seats don't recline and the constant people, flushing and talking woke the babies up all night. No one slept. The main attendant couldn’t be bothered and had a, get over it bad attitude. Oh did i mention i had a dog at my feet also?? Every time they were woken up by the bathroom (constantly) my babies would cry for their mommy and i could only hold on at a time. adjacent seats from mommy is not comforting . Why on earth would we be moved to those seats?! I know why. We were discriminated against for having babies. “Put the babies in the back.” I was a 4x a year flyer at minimum. We will NEVER fly with AA again and i will be filing a complaint. You should be ashamed of your treatment of a family and young children.

Our flight was delayed by 7 hours

Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy.

This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it.

Short connecting flight to LAX from SFO. Only thing I maybe disliked was the lack of entertainment options, but what can I expect when it’s only a small jet to LAX

Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The employees were as good as they could be, given the atrocious handling of the situation by American Airlines and its policies."
Cons: "We were 1.5 hours late leaving for an unknown reason (not weather). Then, it appeared that we didn't try and make up the lost time in the air (we also landed 1.5 hours late.) This caused a significant proportion of the passengers to miss their connecting flights. American didn't do anything to help other than offer a "discount" of about $10 off of over $100/night hotel rooms in the Philadelphia area to sleep overnight in Philadelphia. This was absolutely lousy customer service by American, and will definitely make me avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "The Flight Attendant was excellent. Genuine smile, attentive, and pleasant."
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent, professional job."
Cons: "There were problems with arrival at the gate necessitating delay and 3 gate changes for connecting flight. This was not fault of American but due to a plane breaking down at the original gate at LAX causing our plane to be rerouted to a different gate."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very clear and friendly"
Cons: "Changing outlets under seats didn't always work"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."
Cons: "The plan was 20 minutes behind schedule on departure and to top it off they had me pick up my luggage and check in again making me miss my connection. As a result I lost my train ticket fees"
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat comfort was awful. I paid more for legroom but the actual seat was narrower then others. No one told me that. So legs were fine but my hips were squeezed. Seat cushion was also minimal. The base of my back was aching before take off."
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally  9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."
Cons: "Lack of food and drink. Crew lackadaisical."
Cons: "flight kept getting changed from delayed to on time then we finally get on the runway and have to shut the engines down and we were told that we would have to wait there for an hour"
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Cons: "I specifically never choose American Airlines because whenever I do there are problems. I chose Iberia, not American Airlines and I got switched to it. Sat at the gate for 2 hours after my flight was ALREADY delayed because they didn't load our luggage under the plane correctly and it wasn't safe to fly. I will be calling American Airlines to file a complaint."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Cons: "No wifi. No personal video. Old plane. Felt like 2005 domestic flight instead of 2017 international. I paid $135 each for 2 exit row seats, and everyone around me on the flight told me they had not paid anything and just received the seat today I won't fly AA again I don't think."
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Thought it was funny I didn't get a survey about my disaster trying to leave Boston, only the on time flight getting back. 6 hour delay leaving because of a warning light they didn't catch to begin with. Missed a whole day of vaca. No help once they deplaned us. Horrible flight. First time on American too. Paid for a window seat specific and had no window."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Pros: "The actual attendants on board were perfunctory but had zero urgency or understanding that we had been delayed or notified we'd be so delayed. Appeared there was zero communcation between the gate staff and actual crew. So much was so 'typical Miami' which is just a sad way any travel experience should be described. I expect more from the largest global airline especially when I just listened to several interviews from the CEO who appeared to pride himself to be accurate in being the best to serve his patrons."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 15 minutes. We had well over an hour to go have dinner, so we did. While we were gone, they moved our flight to another gate and left no sign behind-just an empty gate. Nobody, including AA staff at another counter would tell us whether we missed our flight. A passenger getting on another flight overheard us and told us what happened. When we found the right gate, I told the attendant that they should have left a notice on the digital board at the previous gate. He became very effeminate and gave me a piece of his mind, since he had "personally" made the announcement. It didn't matter to him that we weren't there to hear it. That was our problem. The flight was delayed even longer after we boarded because of a fuel gauge issue, and when a few passengers moved about to use the restroom or get belongings out of their luggage, the female attendant on board scolded everyone like school children. We finally got home, an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my flight as suggested (especially during busy summer travel), boarded the plane, and waited on the plane for about 55 minutes for 4 people who were late to make the flight. This was announced to us as we sat down. I've only ever been late once on a flight (as a teenager) and the plane was still at the terminal but the gate was closed.... I was told there was no way they were opening the doors for me. Since then, I make it a point to be early and if necessary, have plenty of time between connections because of delays. I was shocked waiting almost the same time as the length of the flight for a few people who were late. They could have been placed on a later flight (I saw there were plenty of flights). Also, why trouble the majority of travelers for a small minority? I haven't flown American in a while because of other past experiences and spent a lot of time looking at delay history for this particular flight before giving AA another try. I am once again reminded of why I avoid traveling AA and why other people speak poorly of it. PS In the future, give travelers timely, honest updates so that people aren't siting in their seats staring at the door for an hour waiting for someone to walk in so we can take off. I don't know who these people were, how they were connected, and what kind of money they paid you guys but it was all around unprofessional. I know I wasn't the only unhappy traveler. Please get your act together American, you used to be great."
Cons: "Got severely delayed. Poor customer service"
Pros: "I sat next to two of the flight attendants prior to our departure. When they got up to board, their negative comments about getting on the plane made me think Wow, why are you doing this job, if you don't really want to go. The two attendants at the check in, they need some training."
Cons: "More professional staff."
Cons: "Leaving on time"
Pros: "Nice service, let us use the bathroom in business class, gave me a free glass of wine."
Cons: "Late departure by 1.5 hours sucks!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment and meals being served in the row ahead of our seats."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "Non-stop, new plane"
Cons: "Seat comfort is worse then on older planes, narrow aisles make getting to your seat a chore. Poorly placed service buttons in armrests constantly cause erroneous flight attendant calls, reclining the seat causes the knee crush. Wow, United execs should really try their offerings"
Pros: "Captain kept us inform and did what he could to arrive close to schedule."
Cons: "Delayed departure and flight attendant not courteous."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Cons: "It began going downhill at the United Lounge, where I put two chairs together to get a little sleep since my flight was scheduled to leave at 12:30am. I was summarily woken up and told that it wasn't appropriate to sleep in a lounge. I complained at the front-desk (politely) and was told ... "This is a lounge". Oh and yes, the Wifi wouldn't connect and the food was stale ... so I left, and found a very nice sofa in the concourse. On the flight, service was non-existent, whoever was in the galley was clattering things about, despite the fact that this is a short red-eye flight ... the coffee was awful. The steward forgot to give me my coat and I had to ask twice AFTER we landed and were leaving the plane to get it. By contrast, Lufthansa has daybeds and a special quiet area to snooze, and offer pillows and blankets. Clearly, the Germans are louche compared to Americans."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No wifi, sat next to 2 kids aged about 10, no supervision, spinning drinks."
Pros: "Love the phone/tablet holder in the back of the seat."
Cons: "Since it was a cross country flight that left at 8:30am, I wish they served lunch items. The seats are also very narrow."
Cons: "Snack was terrible"
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "A competent cross country flight."
Cons: "Very cramped. Having 2 aisles did help."
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy boarding. They got me where I needed to go, and on time!"
Cons: "I'm disappointed in their in-flight entertainment system. Download the app and check out all of the amazing options they have, then try to use it & good luck. It took me 5 hours to watch 20 min of the movie I chose. It just kept cutting out, then would say entertainment service isn't offered, etc. Why are airlines going away from personal TVs & instead having you bring your own device which may or may not work with the service up there? There was also NO room. I'm not a big person, but I didn't even have space to put my bad under the seat in front of me & sit comfortably. I flew back on JetBlue with the same amount of stuff and had ample room. It was interesting to see the difference."
Cons: "The flight was long and packet. The outlets didn't work, Wi-Fi didn't work. There was no entertainment system. I just had to try and fall asleep, or stare at the seat in front of me. They also changed everyone's seats last minute. The snack they have was terrible. And I'm not picky. It got me to my destination. That's about it."
Pros: "Crew was nice, very large plane and they were attentive to everyone."
Cons: "No tv's on headrest."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, inefficient food service and pricey, and entertainment is a rip off."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed after boarding by 30 + minutes. Snack was not only meager but tasted stale. As my flight from LA was a bit late I didn't really have time to get something to take on the plane. The on board choices were expensive and not at all appealing. Beverage service was only twice. The plane was dirty I had trash in the seat pocket in front of me. The bathroom I used was awful. Trash on the floor toilet was dirty and it smelt bad. It was comparable to a train I took crossing Siberia in the 90,s. My flight to LA was delayed by 51/2 hours. I was given a voucher but after this experience not sure I will ever use it"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers -No leg room -Package on food said snack mix but it only contained pretzels"
Cons: "After you get used to Jet Blue, it's tough to fly with United where there is no inflight entertainment unless you bring your own gadget. There are no in-flight snacks other than a tiny bag of mini pretzels or over-priced "snack boxes" for purchase. For short flights this is fine, but for 5 hour flights, it's a bit stingy. The biggest frustration with United is the small space. If you are a small child, great, but for adults, it's just terribly uncomfortable. Truly a "herded animal" experience."
Pros: "Flight and service experience was good."
Cons: "Pre check not added to boarding passes"
Pros: "Departed on time, arrived 1/2 an hour earlier than anticipated."
Pros: "Really easy flight from start to finish. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, flight was half empty, and we arrived 30 minutes early. Couldn't have been better"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Flight was completely full so I was stuck in a middle seat. The seat felt small and cramped, so was unable to sleep at all on the overnight flight. There was no in-seat entertainment (although I could have watched stuff on my phone, if I had previously installed the united app, and had sufficient battery)."
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "My initial flight was cancelled, then they pushed everyone on to this flight which was then delayed more than 5 hours, then we sat on the tarmac for another hour, and since they crammed 2 flights of passengers on the plane they forced everyone to check their carry-on bags. The plane had 0 TVs or entertainment and the leg room was nonexistent. And on top of all of that, the customer service rep's at the gate were the least helpful people ever."
Pros: "I recently flew Icelandic Air, on a Winglet. It was tiny, and no service like United. United was pleasant, wheelchair right there except one time. I like the Boston to SF flight, aisle seat, huge aisles, no one looked uncomfortable, bathroom kept immaculate, and small plane to Burbank excellent, I even had whole aisle to myself."
Cons: "The flight back to Boston, as mentioned. But Icelandic Air had tv screens on back of seats, so during the very long journey, you could track your flight, look at movies, for free, and beautiful,music selections. I wish United had that. My cell phone was not working great, so had no entertainment"
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "No free wifi :("
Pros: "Roomier comfortable seating."
Cons: "Paying for luggage and food"
Pros: "At least there was room to sprawl out and rest."
Cons: "We boarded our plane and during preflight check on the runway the captain learned there was mechanical error (in the right engine fuel something). The issue could not be solved and we had to change planes. On the second plane, the captain shared with travelers that "and two loose wires were found, so it's good we caught that and changed planes". What the heck? Shouldn't basic functions be checked before a plane is boarded? What was supposed to be a 1030 red eye, turned out to be a 1 AM bloodshot eye."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Booked about 6 weeks early but couldn't sit with my wife. Booked together."
Pros: "The flight was quicker then expected"
Cons: "No entertainment and only served drinks once. For such a long flight they should offer drinks more then once."
Pros: "Enter system has good content and fair price."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and generally grumpy. The flight was delayed due to maintenance ( UAL issue). There was no acknowledgement or apology for the delay."
Pros: "This was a long flight across country from west to east coast and it was smooth and pleasant. Our flight with United to Vancouver B C was also flawless. We would pick United again."
Cons: "Of course the seats are simply too close, but that's the industry standard. Glad I am not overweight. We must have been "hungry locusts" because food was gone on the cart by the time the back of the plane was served and little wine or beer remained. Maybe that's a stocking matter, but it was "dinner time". Thanks"
Pros: "Male server was good."
Cons: "Flight time was initially pushed back (booked for 11am, schedule change to 230) and then was over 90 minutes late departing. Very little information on the delay: why, when taking off and no apology."
Pros: "boarding was okay, only because i have premier 1k elite status"
Cons: "very uncomfortable flight in spite of extra leg room seat cushions hard for someone with back problems bathroom was a trash pit attendants did not remove trash from my tray long time to deplane in boston waited over 20 minutes for baggage to arrive at carousel"
Cons: "Everything - seemed like the airline staff had no concern about passengers being delayed 3 hours arriving around 4 am in the morning - we paid for an afternoon flight and ended up with a red eye - Least you coils do is refund us the fair difference and pay for transportation that we would not have had to pay had the flight been on time and our families would have been able to pick us up"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The of beverages was good."
Cons: "No leg room. A passenger right in front of me throughout the flight continued to slam himself against the back of his seat to recline. There was no way. My knees were right in the back of it. It was literally solid pain for 5+ hours."
Pros: "Best I can say is that I'm home safe and sound with my luggage"
Cons: "Long delay, many passengers were rebooked elsewhere. Boarding is awkward and too many segments slow it down. Staff were indifferent. Internet connection was abysmal. Couldn't get any entertainment."
Pros: "It was on time and the lights were dimmed so I could sleep better. The staff was also very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The service was good, boarding and take off on time."
Cons: "The ride was so bumpy! I've traveled back and forth from Boston to SFO and it's not usually this bumpy from SFO to Boston."
Pros: "The service is not close ro KOREAN AIR ON THE PLANE. The plane is old . The cres is tired.."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "I cannot believe that there is a charge now for entertainment on even long flights. Complimentary drinks only and a pretzel snack bag. No information was available to forewarn the passenger they should bring their own."
Pros: "Movies were great"
Cons: "Need more snacks on a long flight"
Pros: "Clean plan and ok seats"
Cons: "No entertainment, no wifi available, checked carry-on bag because they said there was no room, which was not true, boarded plane late which delayed the filght by 20min for no apparent reason... Crew was not friendly and did not follow captains orders when we hit turbulence as some members would not remain seated which lead to head crew member to make a public announcement to the crew to remain seated and follow captains orders."
Pros: "I like that the flight was quick!"
Cons: "2 babies were on board. Cute but screamed the whole time! Not pleasant at all!! When booking passengers should be able to view if another passenger with baby will be on board!"
