Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Social distancing. Caught covid on the plane back"

Cons: "No internet no monitors staff was rude about checking me in to next fought. No room for carry Ons and I sat in back by time they came with drinks all food was gone"

Pros: "Good service, comfortable airline, no delays."
Cons: "Our luggage didn’t leave the city with us and we had to wait 5 days."

Cons: "No screen on the seats."

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: "This was my first complete trip using momondo to book my flights from LAX to SFO. This was also my first time flying AlaskA! Everything about the momondo app and Alaska Airlines was perfect!! Momondo did an immaculate job of informing me about flights and when to check in, and if anything was delayed."
Cons: "Our flight home was delayed by 2 hours, luckily the Alaskan airline staff was super accommodating. We just so happen to be at the gate when an earlier flight was boarding, and they graciously allowed us to board ahead of schedule. They were amazing."

Pros: "Crew try to be polite."
Cons: "Need to be on time."

Pros: "Fist class was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight attendant checking for service more than once"

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "disorganized boarding led to delays. Landed and sat on the tarmac in the most jet fuel emitting area of the airport and breathed it in for 40 minutes before getting to the gate. Just disorganized in general with take off/landing planning."

Pros: "Accommodating crew, good food,"
Cons: "television monitor was not syncing with the static I was hearing."

Cons: "Crew could be nicer."

Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. My fly was over night and I can’t sleep at all."

Pros: "The fact that movies were available in a domestic flight and the variety of movies."

Cons: "No snacks :("

Pros: "Boarding was fairly efficient and the crew was courteous."
Cons: "There was no entertainment or any power plugs for phones. The plane was small and couldn't accommodate a lot of carry-on luggage. I voluntarily checked my bag to make things easier and my bag arrived on the wrong carousel. It sort of felt like I was being punished for doing the right thing."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Beware- They will sell you X class fares which do not come with a seat assignment. DO NOT BUY! You end up wasting time at the gate to get a seat."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. The Virgin America planes had excellent entertainment as they had TV screens on the seats. You should consider bringing those back."

Cons: "Seat assignments. Friendlier boarding. On time operation."

Cons: "9:30 am flight was cancelled and I was given a 1:30 pm flight instead. Coming home the flight was delayed because while the plane and flight crew were there the Captain was not. It sounded like he was flying in from somewhere else."

Cons: "Best domestic USA airline"

Pros: "No problems"

Cons: "the 4 hour boarding delay"

Pros: "Seats were decently comfy. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours"

Pros: "Got us to LA"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "Comfort of flight. Amazing crew. New clean plane. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We were 45min delayed for a 60min flight :("

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "-Delayed departure (almost 2 hrs). -Gate change with missing flight info at the new gate screen until the last minute. Lots of confused passengers asking if the gate was correct due to the flight leaving late."

Cons: "Alaska airlines were ridiculously late...by 2.5 hours, gave us no reason why, added too many people to delayed flight so much so we had to sit with our carry ons on our lap! ..and then sit on tarmac for quite some time! I used to like Alaska..I am very very disappointed in them! Would be nice if we could get compensation some how..otherwise, dont think I will use them again! very very disorganized flight!"

Pros: "Que aparte de la bebida sirvan un sanduche o algo para comer"

Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "2 hours late! The audio with the entertainment did not work"

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: "We took off over an hour late!"

Cons: "My luggage did not arrive. We were asked to volunteer to check any carryons we did not need to take into the cabin. I volunteered and my luggage did not arrive. I had thousands of dollars worth of items. Submitted a claim."

Pros: "Fast!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes. Crew members didn’t pass out crackers. She only passed out to those who asked. Ofcoarse I didn’t get mine because I don’t fly often, and I didn’t know you were suppose to ask. Crew should’ve provide extra good service for the delayed flights."

Pros: "The plane was new and very clean. Provided charging docks and free entertainment!!"
Cons: "We took longer waiting in the plan then the actual flight itself"

Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."

Pros: "Everything was what I expected I Love that I have so much space on my lane"
Cons: "I have no complaints loved it all"

Pros: "Take off and landing perfect"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac forever...extremely delayed"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Plan delayed for 40mins and change gates."

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: "Food/ beverage service was bad."

Pros: "The crews spilled coffee on me and my purse.....made my LV bag so smelly"

Pros: "Comfortable seating and fast boarding."
Cons: "It take the plane a really long time to get to the gate. I understand flight sometimes get delay but we landed at 8:04 and didn’t get to the gate/existing until 8:40. I wish the flight crew kinda inform us that we might get to the gate a little later due to etc, but nothing was announced and the crew seem a bit annoyed with the situation as well.

I really dont appreciate the attitude. It's not what you say it's how you say it. Work on your attitude Gary from JetBlue"

Pros: "Nothing only wifi was there ...rest everything pathetic"
Cons: "Our whole baggage cane out broken"

Cons: "We were not told we’d be sitting next to a woman with a dog. It was highly offensive to sit and eat next to a dog that smelled and panted constantly, and would shed occasionally. Why not solve this problem by asking passengers when they book a seat if they do or don’t want to sit next to pets? Not everyone can do this since many have allergies. Also, this is not hygienic.

Cons: "Last 6-8 rows were vacant and for some reason Someone was still seated directly next to me. Why on earth the flight attendants (otherwise great) didn’t make an announcement that there was no need to share a row and encourage people to spread out is beyond me. I mean this is the only flight I can remember in a decade that wasn’t nearly or fully booked, you’d think they’d emphasize that.

Cons: "Space on airplanes"

Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."

Cons: "My flight was canceled and rebooked overnight, then delayed 2-3x. This wasn’t all the airline’s fault, but nevertheless, it was a very mediocre experience."

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."

Only 2 items allows. ... In the plane she saw passengers carried way more than what that."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and hospitable."
Cons: "I didn't like how small the seat was on this flight. I'm used to flying JetBlue and getting extra comfort. Also, my television wasn't working properly. I would start a show and then it would play for a couple minutes then the screen would go out, but the sound still on. This happened with every show I tried. Overall I was disappointed in the new American plane even for just a short flight. I can't imagine flying that for a long distance."

Pros: "I cannot even find a positive in describing my flighh experience on August 19-20, 2016"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, as I result I would miss my connecting flight.

Cons: "Sat next to someone quite large I had to squash myself uncomfortable every time someone needed the restroom. This happened frequently as our plane was discovered to have electrical problems immediately before takeoff. Our flight was delayed 2 hours because of this."

Cons: "30 min delays on both ends."

Cons: "Narrowness of seating."

Cons: "Long delay"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Staff was rude and it was some what ok"

Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."

Pros: "Alaska's coach seats were a dream compared to united"

Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"

Pros: "Lovely flight with an attentive crew and nice amenities"

Pros: "We were delayed due to some maintenance issues, but the crew did a great job of keeping us updated on what was happening. Other than that, a normal flight."

Pros: "All fights.. On time made it home safely Friendly crew both ways.."
Cons: "Entertainment should be easier to access.. And Free!!"

Cons: "That you must pay to be able to watch basic TV. Other airlines have free TV or play a movie for you."

Cons: "One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN."

Pros: "Food was good"

Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."

Cons: "Horrible airline"

Pros: "That they stored my carrion that didn't fit overhead for free"
Cons: "Overhead was to small"

Cons: "Showed up at airport w 2 15 yr olds traveling alone. We're told we needed to pay $150 each way. We were NOT told when tix were purchased. Accused of lying about the girls ages when we booked. Tix were booked and paid by two different parents and times. Agent relented and waived fee. At the gate we were again challenged and had to go thru it all again. No more United for us!"

Cons: "Confusions on dates from Internet. Your site usually sets its own dates without confirming."

Cons: "I nearly missed getting a cup of ice as the refreshment cart went up the isle. The attendant tried to give me a small sack of "snacks" instead. I had to repeat myself, over the back of our seats, two more times before I got my cup of ice. I said Thanks! But the look on the attendant's (male, black) face said I wasn't "welcome"."

Cons: "Should load the plane from the back rather from the front. People in the back can sort their stuff while still be able to load people into the front."

Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 20 minutes before taking off due to low cloud cover over Seattle."

Pros: "While waiting in the terminal for everyone to board and the plane to be cleared you got your options of watching everything on the Direct TV headrest screens. It was interesting to see what people watched at 1am (4am my time)."
Cons: "Received another handful of snack mix, which was fine. At least I knew not to eat it this time. Once the plan took off, the headrest screens asked you to pay some ridiculous amount of money to watch them for the hour that we were on the plan. I wasn't surprised, but I never found out who killed the lady in my show. Bummer."

Cons: "Horrible overlay"

Pros: "Booked on kayak, assigned a middle seat with a lap infant (ridiculous!) There were no aisle or window seats available but gate agent was able to move us to a bulkhead so at least we had enough leg room to accommodate us both. Thank you United, but thumbs down to auto seat assignments."
