I love flying Alaska.

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The Alaska Airlines check in was not simple via a kiosk and had to go see an attendant. She did not add Pre-check to our 4 tickets and we missed not seeing it on the ticket. Had to wait in the regular line. So long the waot."
Cons: "Alaska Airline attendant should ask as a protocol and lesson learned to tell them to have it added."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "More food options. Free WiFi."
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: "landed close to on time"
Cons: "seat is uncomfortable, very basic first class amenities."
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!"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. My fly was over night and I can’t sleep at all."
Pros: "I sat between two people who were lovely to talk with, but were much larger than me and i felt squished in between them. I felt pretty claustrophobic. Note to self, to choose window or isle."
Cons: "longer seats."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was really great. A large number of excellent movies"
Cons: "Seats felt even more narrow than I am used to, and area under seat seemed smaller. Could barely fit my backpack underneath."
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Cons: "No problems at all but flight was rerouted to San Jose"
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."
Pros: "Crew was ‘amazing’!!!"
Pros: "Very sweet crew"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect"
Pros: "I'm an aviation enthusiast. It was the plane I liked..."
Cons: "Nothing that Alaska Air could have fixed."
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."
Cons: "Great. Easy"
Pros: "I was on a plane with leather seats and sexy red lighting. Clearly a plane aquired from Virgin during the merger. I had a handsome young gay flight attendant who gave me a big smile. And there was free Chardonnay for the beverage."
Cons: "My seat mates on either sides were both young millennial females who both had huge carryons they stuffed under the seat in front of them and both were gorging on food they brought with appetites that seemed to convey they hadn’t eaten in days. The plane was fine. The passengers not so much."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Took the same flight two weeks ago now they even stripped beverages to nothing. Water or oj. Asked if I could even buy something else and got a response with attitude that they don’t offer anything else on later flights. Disappointed"
Cons: "Alaska has utterly ruined Virgin’s first class experience, and the food is garbage."
Pros: "Clean plane and pleasant crew and announcements."
Cons: "The complimentary snack were dry sugar biscuits."
Pros: "The spacious seats. Great customer service. Fast and smooth site."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked the flight for my boyfriend and I we were seated apart from each other in a different row."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, uneventful. Standard issue, the passengers were on their own to stow bags, get seated...even as crew was requesting that bags be turned on their sides like a book to provide as much room as possible. Then please go through the cabin and assist. Otherwise it was fine because no one has anything approaching expectations these days."
Cons: "This plane was older, smaller and less comfortable than the one we flew from JFK to SFO. For 5 plus hours it wasn’t the most inviting. At landing several people appeared desperate to deplane, perhaps to make connections but no one assisted them. There were also passengers from the rear of the plane up and in the aisle immediately which just causes tension and friction for those still seated. That’s when I want to and did say something to certain individuals and made them wait. But this is the flight crew’s responsibility, not the passenger’s."
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: "Everyone is so nice. Easy & reasonable price."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing."
Pros: "free drinks"
Cons: "Slow and disorderly boarding at SFO"
Pros: "Missed floght"
Cons: "Alaska overbooking to 107% (TSA’s explanation) at security checkpoint D at SFO FROM 10-1am caused many missed flights and many disgruntled passengers due to TSA agents being incredibly in hospitable."
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: "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: "not too much"
Cons: "We made it to the gate with a good 10 minutes before take off. They did not call our names on the overhead because we were nearby the gate. But when we approached them at the gate counter, I heard the radio saying that our flight was pushing back. WTF?? Luckily they were able to get us on the next flight an hour later. But still, not impressed."
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: "Free drinks and cocktails."
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "The idea for tablets as in-flight entertainment is one that I hope does not gain too much traction."
Pros: "A row of seats all to myself. On time departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Super polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "If I have to pick something, maybe the chatty woman behind me but that's not the Airlines fault."
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: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"
Pros: "On-time departure and no hassle boarding policies."
Pros: "Quick boarding, large overhead bin for storage, comfortable seat and headrest, convenient outlet for charging and great leg room. The flight was short, 1 1/2 hour so just drinks other wise you can purchase food. Crew were friendly and clean bathroom."
Cons: "Wish they include a better snack like nuts instead of a cookie, otherwise I would definitely fly them again."
Pros: "very comfortable seats and comfortable plane in general."
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?"
Pros: "The prices were decent and the personnel at the airport check in counter were friendly and helpful. The flight was short but it was nice to have the seat-back chargers to recharge my phone."
Cons: "The onboard crew seed a little stiff. They were very selective - the two flight attendants in first class & coach - with whom they greeted good morning / hello. I watched this from my seat in disappointment. I needed to ask for a seat extender as I'm currently recovering from surgery and needed a little room around the bandages and I had to ask several times even though there was not a lot of pre-flight activity. They were standing around in the aisle. I make note of this type of behavior because I fly frequently for work on a variety of airlines and this is my first experience with Alaska Air."
Pros: "They did what their jobs required. They were never rude. If they were they would be talked to. They did what they were suppose to do. What else can I say? It was only an hr flight. I hour flight Jeez!!!"
Pros: "Free wi-fi and movies on own device on the way from PDX-SFO but it did it work as advertised on the way back."
Pros: "Alaska is efficient and friendly . The plane was new and clean. The plane left SF on time and landed lightly --perfect flying ."
Cons: "Because of the wind in Palm Springs, the flight crew wasn't able to do a real drink service. I look forward to a glass of cheap Alaska red wine on my Friday afternoon flights!"
Cons: "If United can serve more than orange juice or water, so can you"
Pros: "All of the crew at the gates and at the airports were WONDERFUL! Very patient and accommodating. They dealt with some very frustrated passengers very well."
Cons: "This was the first time that i had to change AIRPORTS for my initial flight. This caused a HUGE delay in the initial flight. This was NOT communicated well to the passengers..... ALASKA AIRLINES could have done MUCH better with the communication of that delay and everything involved!!"
Pros: "Good organization, good hygiene, polite crew."
Pros: "A box was under my feet, not sure what it was. A part of plane! ATL - EZE uncomfortable Crew great in spite of ongoing turbulence!"
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "The entire time there was a clogged bathroom smell coming in waves. The crew was forgetful of requests. Not a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"
Cons: "Good taste perhaps...?"
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "The crews were very fast and efficient. The Dinner was good but the breakfast was very basic."
Cons: "The seat was so crammy and disgustingly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
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: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More water offered by crew"
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."
Pros: "On time, smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Crew could be on time for work so the flights aren’t delayed"
Pros: "The Delta crew was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, for unkown reasons."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "No delays..arrived early"
Cons: "Restrooms were dirty"
Pros: "Nice employees and service"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Pros: "Not on time"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "Sky Lounge at SFO and onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too hot and made for a very uncomfortable flight. The individual air conditioner spewed out hot air. My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."
Cons: "Delta airlines has very poor costumer service. THE WORST I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I wasn't the only one feeling this way, I witness a couple people fighting on the phone like me. When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."
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: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Comfort and boarding"
Cons: "Delay and food"
Pros: "Flight was on time and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Should offer headphones for free."
Pros: "The service was fine. I slept the entire flight."
Cons: "I was not impress with the breakfast since I do not eat yogurt. It is a good thing i am not a breafast eater normally because I would have been hungry."
Pros: "The new Delta planes have great leg room for tall people even in coach."
Cons: "Asked for hot tea but what I got was barely tepid."
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Cons: "I tried to get a seat and it was so hard, i couldn't do an online check in and once at the airport, no one could help me."
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."
Cons: "half-broken screen, couldn't access anything on the left side"
Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "the 1 hour delay, when we arrived we sat for another hour and I missed my international flight"
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: "On time"
Cons: "Late flight, minimal beverage service....on a four hours on a plane one would expect at least a second pass through the cabin with water"
Cons: "Hand carry shouldn't be charged as other flights."
Pros: "Crew did a great job"
Cons: "Delayed flight with no announcement about a gate change."
Cons: "Flight took off an hour late, no video monitors on seats for 6 hour flight, all 3 of our bags did not arrive. Sun country unresponsive to trying to locate our bags. I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Loss our luggage. Long check in lines. Almost missed flight"
Pros: "We boarded and took off on time. The staff was friendly."
Pros: "Friendly crew and right on time. It was an easy travel experience."
Cons: "Tight leg room and paying to choose my seat in order to check in online"
Pros: "The plane is a decent size, first plane had decent sized seats and headrests that were adjustable, second plane had smaller seats and no headrest, crew was friendly and like that it was a direct flight. Over all a decent flight."
Cons: "My duffle bag was damaged, when I arrived to Minneapolis one of the handles had been ripped off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 and 1/2 hours. The plane was a mess. One of the seats was broken causing more delays. To top it off my golf clubs never arrived. The final straw was listening to the customer service recording tell me for 30 minutes how seriously they take luggage issues. I guess you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Grumpy female agent at boarding gate"
Pros: "Best landing in my 20 years of flying."
Cons: "The plane crew were great but the check-in crew were not professional. The plane was late and they didn't provide an ETA...on both flights. When the plane was delayed going out of SFO, they didn't say anything until 30 mins after we were supposed to fly out. As passengers, I know we are not in charge of when the plane will arrive and when we can board...that's obvious. BUT the check-in crew should have that information and should be able to communicate (approximate) wait times to us. That's all... :)"
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding."
Cons: "Seat was cramped (even though I'm only 5'10 and relatively trim)."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Online Seat selection only on payment and online check-in was allowed only upon seat selection. Indirectly it means collect some more $$ from passengers for online check-in. Boarding sequence was chaotic as there was no sequence after the first class."
Pros: "The cost, seats were comfortable,"
Cons: "The plane was an hour late landing at my destination partly bc they ran out of room in the overhead for bags. On flight entertainment cost $$ and was in the form of an iPad."
Cons: "I was in the 7th row and by the time they got to me with food/beverages they were out of burgers and sandwiches."
Cons: "I’m not sure why an airline, in 2017, doesn’t have WiFi available during the flight."
Pros: "Love sun country -crew is friendly, plane is comfortable"
Cons: "We were over 2hr delayed... arriving at destination at 2am making a major inconvenience for family picking up at airport and wedding the following morning"
Pros: "Was upgraded to an exit row seat and when I asked the price the agent said it was a courtesy upgrade. It made a big difference in my comfort since I am 6'4"."
Cons: "Boarding very disorganized. We were hurried of the flight from San Francisco to Minneapolis because we were late only to find out that it was the same plane going to Boston and our departure would be delayed. I think it caused some unnecessary panic for passengers."
Pros: "Staff, easy boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I have never seen such a steady stream (no pun intended) of passengers using the restroom. Crew was having a hard time getting beverage carts out as a result, but handled it with charm."
Cons: "Not enough overhead storage"
Pros: "We had mobility issues and got great help♡"
Pros: "The employees were so attentive & caring. Very accommodating. Was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "unable to check in online as we bought the ticket thru Kayak. and it didn't flow to Sun Country. Needed to call Sun Country, put on hold for 45 min to discuss with agent. It was not visible that we even had a reservation ntil speaking with an agent. SC website didn't show that we had a reservation. The agent found the reservation. It was a total pain and nuisance to phone in on both legs of the trip..... Make the outside vendors talk to your system."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The pilot informed us from time to time where the plane was and how far each spot was from the destination."
Cons: "Two of the three crew members on board ignored me and a passenger next to me when serving water/beverage. We had to call to get it!"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Sun Country and from now on I will try to always fly Sun Country. The most helpful and polite staff I have ever encountered period."
Cons: "Changed our seat assignments w/o notifying us. Brought it to their attention and the desk clerk changed them for us; however , when they reassigned seats,once again screwed up. Seats she said were available weren't. My wife is tall,has long legs and needs the extra leg room , particularly on a trip of several houers."
Pros: "I am a tall person and on both flights I was offered an exit row seat with more leg room when they saw me. I didn't even have to ask, which is great. In addition I made a mistake with my reservation (off by one day) and they very kindly changed it with no cost. (NOT normally policy, but as a special exception). I was VERY happy that they were flexible in this matter."
Cons: "I have no complaints - except about things that are "standard" in every flight - no food, charging for in flight entertainment, security lines, having to get to airport 2 hours before flight, etc..."
Pros: "I enjoyed te staff. Very warm and welcoming."
Cons: "I didn't like how cold it was."
Pros: "Liked the efficiency."
Cons: "Plane could have been a tad more comfortable."
Pros: "Love the bigger more comfortable seat with the extra leg room"
Cons: "Other than salad (a very good salad) the bbq dinner was horrible. The beef was dry, tough and tasteless! The green beans mushy and overcooked. I asked the attendant for the cheeseburger instead, 10 minutes later she hands me a very hot burger that's still in the bag, no plate, tray or napkins. Sun Country promotes the burger as having Lions Tap seasoning. For the Lions Tap people- you're not doing your business any favors being associated with one of the worst microwave burgers on the planet!! I would be willing to bet the youngest flight attendant on the crew was in her early 60s, not that I have a problem with a senior crew but they were less than eager to please and they seem to have this take it or leave it attitude. I guess when I'm looking at the retirement finish line I'll probably be coasting too. Problem is it makes for a poor customer experience, in this case mine"
Pros: "I was able to reserve a seat few days before flying."
Cons: "i called Sun country on phone and was on hold for over one hour."
Pros: "direct flight from San Fran saved time."
Cons: "everything was fine."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Wanting another seat, not in the middle and then being offered said seat for $129. No thanks."
Pros: "SFO to Minneapolis was a good experience"
Cons: "Snack was not provided Requested for a blanket as I forgot my jacket, was told that I could buy one if I needed it Boarding from Minneapolis was a bit messy as they boarded middle rows last and when I got in there was a scramble to find a spot for my cabin luggage as the cabin above my seat was already full. Not a big deal - created a little bit of delay when getting off the plane. Had to wait for 10 minutes to get to my cabin luggage which was all the way at the back."
Pros: "Nice to get a drink especially coke products."
Cons: "A little snack would be nice like some peanuts or pretzels. I can't believe that can be much of an expense."
Pros: "-Space to spread out due to limited passengers."
Pros: "The courteous check- in staff. The direct flight, the amazing punctuality of the flight. In general, the flight and on ground service were great"
Cons: "The only thing that was amiss was the demeanor of one flight attendant. In a response to a (the only from us) call light she responded to us with the following sentence "what do you want". I was able to shrug off the very unprofessional response. However, I wasn't the only passenger who was put off by her attitude and this can unfortunately affect the company's reputation negatively."
Pros: "We left and arrived on time"
Cons: "It was cold, would have been nice to have a blanket or know that one is not provided. Next time I know to have a sweater with me. Not a big deal."
Pros: "fast and good services"
Pros: "They were on time and that's about all I can say for the positives."
Cons: "No seat assignment available and had to pay 30$ extra to ensure seats were together with no info or help from kayak. Carry ons were checked in despite plenty of overhead space. Charges for even first check in bag. Will avoid sun country from now on."
Pros: "I liked the flight was cheaper, it was on time, getting on the flight was quick."
Cons: "The temperature on both flights was warm. Normally I'm used to planes being cold but Sun Country Air likes to keep it really warm. I also didn't like how small the seats were to each other. Very squeezed in. Lastly, the crews should smile more and act like they care about their job."
Pros: "It reminded me of a little bit less comfortable Southwest flight but the crew was definitely high quality."
Cons: "They lost my baggage!"
Pros: "There was a male flight attendant (not sure of his name) that was wonderful. He was funny and personable"
Cons: "My boyfriend and I purchased our seats separately and we asked if there was a way that we could be seated together. The man that was checking in our bags said no and that the plane was full. We were fine with it, but after awhile he said that he found a couple seats together in the emergency exit aisle. It was great! We got on the plane and there were tons of extra seats, the plane was not full and I believe that he was too lazy to look for seats together upon our first request."
Cons: "Landing is terrible"
Pros: "Not turbulence, but over correction. Worried we had a junior pilot. Pilot should have come on speaker after take off incident, many afraid passengers."
Cons: "Older plane, not super friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, there were extra seats on the plane which gave us room to stretch out. Easy experience all around."
Cons: "Apparently (from the conversation behind me), the cheese/cracker platter ran out on the flight, which I had on a previous flight. Its awesome, but if this is worth writing about, then I cant really complain."
Pros: "Everything was great. no complaints!"
Pros: "All the other attendants."
Cons: "The male attendant. I got sick in flight, sitting in row 8 I went to the front of the plane to use the restroom and he wanted to make me go to the back of the flight. Had I not challenged him when I asked if there was a restroom up front his response was "there is one in the back" I would of thrown up all over on the way to the back. Only when I asked him again and then told him I was sick did he then not argue. Stupid."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "The plane was cold!"
Pros: "On time. Warm greetings from the pilots. New aircraft, clean, great entertainment."
Cons: "It is what it is, doesn’t have to be better"
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"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "They need to have better policies for morbidly obese seat mates who feel entitled to lift the arm rest and take over a good part of the neighboring seat. With a full flight, the attendants couldn’t change our seats and said that they realized I was out a horrible situation"
Cons: "The gate agents called all boarding groups with the boarding queue extending the entire length of the jet bridge and into the terminal beyond the gate area, making us stand in line ten to fifteen minutes longer for no reason."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Getting a flight"
Cons: "Plane was old and dirty, would not recommend."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth because the fligh had a lot of Sears availabke"
Cons: "Make AA a real earline to serve passengers not profits"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The plain was very old meaning no screens, outlets, pretty much no entertainment what so ever. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seat assignments based on loyalty status - rude gate agents"
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Cons: "I didn’t like the restrictions on the fare and being reminded several time with negative emails from the carrier about the restrictions."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment. They had a touch screen with a great selection of movies, music, and TV shows to kill the time with."
Cons: "No peanuts."
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: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They forced my wife off of the flight because they would not check our bags in 35 minutes before the flight."
Cons: "Flight attendendant were unfriendly,she missed my dinner ,I had to call her so she bring my dinner!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed over an hour!"
Cons: "great flight"
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."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable seat. Courteous crew. Easy transfer."
Pros: "On time flight, as comfortable as can be hoped for."
Cons: "Non-economy plus seats are too small. Boarding frequently complicated by passengers who create issues with overhead space and carry ons."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. I felt lucky when they gave me a place in a plane leaving 1 hour earlier. But that flight was delayed twice because of mechanical problems: the first time we had to go back to the gate and the second time we stayed on the runway just before take off Not enough room in overhead bins. They asked people to check small suitcase or bag."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"
Pros: "In flight movies were varied, with both new and international films to watch. Flight attendants were nice. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Spent a while sitting on the plane waiting to take off because of some kind of delay, but that meant I could spend more time watching the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Pros: "while our flight was delayed, they kept us well-informed about what was happening and didn't leave us in the dark. We were delayed because an fight attendant failed to show up, and there happened to be another off-duty flight attendant passenger on board who volunteered to work the flight so that we could still depart on time. Real thoughtful dedication!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator"
Cons: "I was not a fan that the overhead compartment for my row was not available due to the life raft in there. I understand you have to have one on board, but I think it should be more at the emergency aisles. Also the size of the seats and the space you get is not really worth the price anymore. No matter how big or small someone is, its not comfortable. Airlines need to get back to how the seating was back in the day with great leg room and the seats are a bit wider than what it is now."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 5 hr flight. I know a lot of people bring devices but a set of headphones and some music would be nice"
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"
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: "Movies in flight."
Cons: "That I was rebooked and lied to at first as to why, and when getting another ticket the the ticket agent said the flight was rebook because "the crew didn't want to come to work". Not cool, I didn't react I simply got my ticket and just wemtnonw but there was no apology like they didn't care what I missed having to be rebooked I also wasn't given any sort of military discount no seats no baggage. Other airlines I've flown the past months always do something for military."
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Plane was clean and adequately comfortable."
Cons: "The shuttle system at LAX is confusing and time consuming. Will this ever be remedied or is this just a fact of life when flying to LAX with American?"
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Cons: "Never made the flight due to flight not getting in to Chicago on time. Still stranded here with my son. Supposed to be sent to Hartford then Dublin later today. Overall a very bad experience with American Airlines. Wouldn't recommend travelling with them again."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were considerate that it was very early on a Sunday and so they kept interruptions to a minimum."
Cons: "The legroom seemed particularly tight on this flight. Not sure why. I fly a lot. Maybe this plane was diffferent - or I was particularly interested in napping and it was hard?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They charge for everything luggage they can see in the front desk. My 63 years old mother had her small size hand carrier, a travel tote on top (with her travel blanket and her medicine) and a crossbody passport size. They told her to put it in her tote!!! Only 2 items allows. ... In the plane she saw passengers carried way more than what that."
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable than I remember. The cost was appropriate for the travel I did. I was happy to find access to movies on my own device for the long flight."
Cons: "The snacks were limited and I had to use my own device for entertainment."
Cons: "No seemed happy at all."
Cons: "it was really bumpy"

The flight attendant was was just lovely. Could not have been better.

Pros: "Great nonstop, friendly crew"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Why are stews so rude."
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Pros: "Nothing in special."
Cons: "We took two United flights today.... Both were delayed... Really annoyed by it. Took Delta and AA some days ago without a hickpup."
Cons: "Basic Economy forces you to check bags for a fee and prohibits carry on luggage. I was not prepared for this when checking in. Luckily, we were able to downsize into one suitcase which we checked in."
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."
Cons: "Has lots of contradicting texts about flight status"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."
Cons: "Long flight but that is to be expected"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."
Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."
Pros: "Again could not fault staff and quality of flight services, luckily space to sleep so fantastic flight."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "Flight crew did everything possible to make up time lost from a maintenance delay."
Cons: "Crew member splattered me with tonic from a can he opened for the passenger in front of me. No harm done, however."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Pros: "I liked that we flew directly into Palm Springs, which is my local airport."
Cons: "I didn't like how tight the seating spaces were. I'm a thin, small person and I was not comfortable. I can't imagine how a taller or heavier person could be accommodated comfortably. I never thought I'd say this ... but I've now decided I prefer taking the train because domestic air travel is just too confining!"
Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"
Cons: "1. The flights within the US and Canada was delayed. 2. The United Airline staff in San Francisco told me to pick up my luggage when I get to Seattle despite of the fact that my final destination was Vancouver. I questioned the staff about this ata this seemed odd, but he insisted that I pick up my luggage in Seattle. Upon arrival to Seattle I went to the baggage claim area to find out that my luggage was already put through to the connecting airline to Vancouver. This resulted in me having to go through a long line of passengers to do all of the security checks again to enter the international airport gates. This almost resulted in me missing my connecting flight to Vancouver. The only saving grace was that the flight was delayed by another hour. 3. Changes made on my connecting flights were only given to me during my check in at Auckland. My previous booking was Auckland -San Francisco - Portland - Vancouver. The boarding pass I was given in Auckland omitted Portland and was changed to Seattle. I was never informed about this by United Airlines. 4. United Airlines website NOT allowing me to log in using my e-mail."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What is Kayak anyway? Check your records Kayak in no way helped my travels. Kayak was not able to book my lame flights with the lame and soon to be bankrupt again airlines. Kayak has done nothing but waste my time. Thanks. Is Kayak publicly traded? I'll have to look that up. Great short sale right there."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Cons: "Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."
Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"
Pros: "Arrived early!!!"
Cons: "No snacks!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never got to do this flight because of the previous flight which is reviewed below: My seat was broken and wouldn't stay in upright position. This really pissed off the passenger behind me. Crew kept telling me to put my seat upright, I kept having to tell them the seat was broken. Old airplane with no in-seat entertainment. they advertise on the seat that you can watch all their entertainment content for free, but then you have to pay for wifi to watch so it's not free then, is it? Every movie or show requires "additional software" so you have to purchase internet to do the download. This is an 11 hour flight, I would have appreciated being able to watch a movie or something without forking out $30. Flight was delayed, so we were low on time to make our connection. I asked a flight attendant twice if we could get help deplaning early or at least get moved up some rows since we were in the very back of a 747 (there were plenty of vacant seats). They said no, and told us that customs would only take a minute and that the other united flight knew we'd be coming and would wait. I don't usually fly united; other airlines typically will actively take steps to help (like moving connecting passengers to the front shortly before landing) if they are the cause of the delay. Customs had only one agent working and we were pretty much last in line so that process took over an hour. Just moving us 10 rows forward before landing would have made all the difference because our connecting flight closed its doors and taxied for takeoff less than 5 minutes before we arrived. They had some united employees guiding and directing a couple of passengers that were going to be late for a connection to LAX, but no help for those of us connecting to portland. Customer service didn't even offer a verbal apology. Last time I flew with united, I also had a terrible experience for different reasons. I did not intend to fly united for this flight, but I purchased tickets through and for Lufthansa, and this flight was regrettably operated by united. Another thing I don't like - the food was horrendous. It was a breakfast sandwich that was advertised as "hot and fresh" on the packaging but was served straight from the refrigerator. I was in the middle seats with one person to my left and two people to my right. Everyone took only one bite and threw away the rest. Just don't bother serving the food if it's going to be that bad, it's very wasteful. I always appreciate a hot towelette after a long overnight flight. United offered no such thing which was a first for me. Regarding boarding: they called us all up to line up in boarding groups and then we had to stand in line for 65 minutes. I have a bad back and had to sit on the carpet to avoid being last in line and not having space for my carry on bag. Would have been nicer if they would have just let us sit in the chairs at the gate in comfort until they were ready to board."
Pros: "We didn't crash?"
Cons: "After much concerns and inquiries made bag did NOT make the plane! There is as no one to h love me to n white Planes for 45 minutes! No one at the counter? Wow! Finally supervisor Jill was able to track it down in Chicago where th y took it off the he plane as my carry on because they had no room l ft from the h limited space. After working very hard to get my bag of o White Plains that evening, supervisor Jill hung out an hour past her shift ended to get it on the last transport to my hotel. The transport blew herself by ft and never showed up or called the o say he wasn't coming back! I got my bag on he next morning just in tim for my event! I also was not credited my frequent flyer miles. Some glitch in the system. Overall I must rate my experience as a one star simply because the pilots got us there safely."
Pros: "No entertainment unless you pay, but you can't turn the tv off, so it's playing bright ads in your face all night. Awesome."
Cons: "If you want to feel like you're riding the most cramped Greyhound bus, definitely ride with united."
Cons: "Because of a delay in SFO to Chicago O'Hare airport I missed my connecting flight back home. My connecting flight left early without me. While boarding the plane in SFO, the people at the gate made me check my carry on bag. Which I thought was very weird. When we finally got to Chicago I stood in line for two and a half hours to talk to one of the worst customer service lady of my life. She swore at me many times over me trying to be polite and wait for her to call me up to find another flight. Instead she looked at me and said "what are you waiting for?" She said to me "Oh here's a flight. But oh wait it's already sold out or gone" and she would laugh. Finally she found a flight close to where I live. My baggage had got lost from my connecting flight leaving without me. I got all of my luggage 2 days after. My carry on bag that got checked at my gate was in a clear trash bag. I took it out of the bag to find that it was completely trashed. My handles were ripped off which put a huge whole revealing all of my personal items. My carry on bag has only been used once and can never be used again. I unpacked my bag and noticed $300 worth of my stuff was missing. I have called to make many complaints to talk to corporate office but no one would give me the correct number. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again. I am so disappointed."
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice"
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day cost was rediculus united wanted an additional amount equal to the cost of the whole round trip not very helpful Were TSA approved going but not returning At 84 did not appreciate this. Will not fly United again if I have a choise"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Arrived in DC 15 minutes early. Did not use entertainment so no comment there but overall I had no complaints."
Pros: "Quick-ish boarding"
Cons: "No food. No entertainment. No power. Garbage, lowest rung "bus in the sky" service"
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."
Cons: "I was on a super late flight to Chicago and for some reason was placed in Boarding Group 5 (I have a United cc, so I thought that came with the perks). I got over that part. But then they made me check my roller-board claiming they were full up. When I boarded, there was PLENTY of overhead bin space. So I had to go to baggage claim after midnight for no reason. Bummer."
Pros: "Finally a United flight that left on time and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The entire United experience left me wanting something, anything from this airline. Unfortunately the only thing they will get from me is no more chances for service recovery. They failed miserably!"
Pros: "We boarded in record time and took off in record time. The landing was so smooth I hardly noticed it. Perfection!"
Cons: "Anything I didn't like is typical plane stuff - small cramped seats, one cup of soda instead of the entire can, etc. Nothing unusual!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about this constantly delayed flight with rude attendants at the gate. I will not be flying United again."
Cons: "Everything! Our flight started with a thirty minute delay which was mentioned after we were asked to stand and prepare to board. The flight continued to be pushed out an hour every hour with no reason as to why. Our gate changed and we were told to line up for boarding, then we had another delay. The frustrating part was being told to line up to board only to see another delay. In total, the flight was delayed over four hours, being asked to prepare to board three times and with one gate change. This was not even the worst part, our new plane did not have WiFi, which was promised when booking. Needless to say, the entertainment was bleak. The icing on this flight from hell was when we hit turbulence and two bottles of wine spilt on another passenger and all over the floor. I understand that this happens, but none of the flight attendants attempted to clean up the wine and all the passengers where forced to smell cheap red wine for the remaining eight hours of the flight. I regret to claim that I will not fly United ever again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Pros: "Got us safely and conveniently to Vic at a good price and on time. Flight attendant was fine and cooperative, though no special warmth."
Cons: "I have one star on food and entertainment because there wasn't any of either, but that's understandable for a short flight. No issues."
Pros: "Nice crew, good flight."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, short flight so not big issue"
