Cons: "....."

Pros: "Easy on, easy off! Departed and arrived on time. Crew were cheery and bright! Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!"
Cons: "Some of these survey questions need to be NA- my flight was too short for food service or entertainment."

Pros: "Friendly crew and quick easy boarding."

Cons: "Boarding was difficult. Had to rush, too long of wait at check in"

Pros: "On line system was great and easy."

Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"

Cons: "I was informed we'd get some kind of voucher for the 5 hour delay but never recieved anything."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable, little padding. Flight was over an hour late leaving SJO."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were delayed. Crew was rude. Then we flew to another airport just to get fuel, which further delayed us. We arrived late to the connecting airport and missed our connecting flight home. Not given food vouchers. Had to pay for 1 checked bag despite flying internationally. Overall, very dissasatisfied with Alaska Airlines and I will be sure to go out of my way not to book again with Alaska."

Pros: "Comfort of premium seats. Free drinks and snacks."
Cons: "A little too cold. But I've learned flight are usually cold and went prepared."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly and responsive."
Cons: "They need an internet service that works outside the U.S. The bus ride to immigration and customs is awful."

Cons: "The man next to me left his phone on so he could text."

Cons: "Would love to see more vegan options on the menu!"

Cons: "seats"

Pros: "Easy and fast check in and boarding"

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding Walking outside to get into the plane The flight attendant"

Pros: "Cute little propeller plane. Free beer. Nice staff. University of Idaho "Vandal" plane!"
Cons: "Seats are a bit tight. To be expected."

Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"

Pros: "I liked that a beer or glass of wine was offered."
Cons: "It is a small plane for a two hour flight."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and quick. The airplane was a lot more comfortable then I imagined. Plenty of seat and leg room for a big guy."

Pros: "Crew was nice."

Cons: "Asked at check-in if my barcode was ok to use bc I did not receive an automated email for return check-in, she said "Let me see, yes that's good, but hurry up because you have 40min before your plane​ departs". Low and behold, security said my barcode was not valid and had to run back and forth to get a new one printed. What made it worse was the check in clerk wanted to argue her point and there was only one flight attendant available and boarding closed 12min prior to departure, I was standing and waiving through the gates window trying to get all the flight attendants attention. I could have made it but missed my flight. Horrible experience!"

Cons: "No cranberry juice!"

Pros: "Empty plane!"

Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"

Cons: "Flight delay...NOT Alaska Airlines fault."

Pros: "Nothing. Never was able to get on the flight"
Cons: "Layover was too long between flights. Overslept at gate waiting for flight. Woke up at 6:15p and was not allowed on flight as they had closed the gate already even though plane did not take off for 10 more minutes"

Pros: "Terrible that I had to carry my carry on down the stairs to plane, lucky it wasn't raining, & then up a flight of stairs to plane with a torn rotator cuff. I felt like I was flying in the 70's. Coming back, a bald headed attendant was very rude. I did not get any refreshments on the way to Portland which they said was a rough ride but ride was smooth. That was ok, that didn't matter if our safety was involved. Also $25 for one bag is a lot to carry hair spray or a few things you can't carry on."
Cons: "I did like the refreshments served on the way back from Portland to Reno. That was nice. A different attendant served us & he was very nice."

Cons: "It was a 6 hour flight with no meal provided, only two small cookies. It was an evening flight."

Pros: "The staff is awesome, the ride is always so comfortable"
Cons: "Not flying more often"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines was a great, very friendly crew and pilot. boarding was eazy , and the flight was on time."

Pros: "Great service and friendly staff"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very professional and nice smiling and pleasant."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "I arrived to Costa Rica on a flight from El Salvador, police hold a long line which made a lot of people loose their connection flight including myself. After losing my flight, Alaska did NOTHING TO HELP to get a new flight or get hotel accommodation. Alaska employees showed great disregard for helping stranded costumers that lose their flight even when it was not passengers foul. I will try NOT to flight on Alaska anymore!!!!"

Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Wish bags were free"

Pros: "I love the direct flight from Reno to Seattle in the evening. Makes if so i dont have to waste my day with connecting flights."

Pros: "Comfortable, clean."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours."

Pros: "There was plenty of space, good entertainment, it boarded fast, took off on time, and had zero issues."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Luggage that had to be checked at the gate was not immediately available when we landed."

Cons: "More cramped seats than Southwest."

Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."

Pros: "Crew attentive and helpful"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Enjoy flying with Delta, crew was great."
Cons: "disappointed they didn't have a few more snacks available."

Cons: "Had to pay extra for seat assignment. Very tight seating; almost demands paying extra for "comfort seats." Crew moved my carry-on bag; should have told me or helped me find it when deplaning. No beverage service due to turbulence (understandable -- not their fault). Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."

Pros: "Everything was as expected. Few delays but weather related and was only about 90 minutes"
Cons: "Reclining seats"

Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."

Pros: "Baggage came quickly. Flight was on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."

Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "no lunch on a flight that departed at 2 pm."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."

Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."

Cons: "On time, free upgrade."

Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"

Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."

Pros: "Like the airplane - Boeing 757. More comfortable than the 737."
Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."

Pros: "Time of the flight"
Cons: "Space in the plane"

Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."

Pros: "I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!"

Pros: "Still the best great airline"

Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"

Pros: "It was good"

Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Cons: "Delta refused to assign my seats until just before boarding, even though I booked my flights months in advance. This is very stressful and totally unacceptable to treat passengers this way."

Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"

Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"

Cons: "They should provide good hindi movies and songs in the flight"

Pros: "Great meal in economy. Delta entertainment was free and very comprehensive. Plane was packed, but service was great."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "I wanted a first class seat there were three available I asked 45 minutes before the flight took off if I could upgrade and they said that they don't allow that within one hour so I was put into a comfort seat for free but the entire flight there were three first class seats open kind of silly I would've paid"

Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Cons: "Flight got delayed and I had to reschedule. The process of rescheduling was a mess and took too long"

Pros: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Cons: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"

Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat No entertainment"

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: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."

Pros: "Nice to fly again!"

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."

Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"

Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"

Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seat width, height, pitch and aisle width were absolute minimum. Very uncomfortable !!!"

Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I have flown this airline many times and never once have we ever taken off on time. We left 2 and a half hours late and the people that work for them are grumps all the time. Never flying them again."

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Pros: "The entertainment"

Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."

Cons: "Food in general"

Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."

Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."

Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."

Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."

Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."

Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."

Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."

Cons: "Cramped on flight after coming 1st class from Seattle."

Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."

Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."

Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"

Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."

Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."

Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"

Pros: "Felt like the pilot was experienced and skilled because It was very smooth in departing and landing."
Cons: "There was a lady sitting on my assigned seat. She said flight attendance told her that is ok to do. I wouldn't mind if she or staff asked me with legitimate reasons. It happened at mt last trip; ending up sitting next to big person instead of sitting with my 12 year old daughter."

Pros: "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."

Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "Never made connection since first flight was deplaned"
Cons: "Never made it"

Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."

Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."

Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."

Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."

Cons: "Didn't take the plane!"

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"

Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived much earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."

Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."

Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."

Pros: "Zero."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."

Pros: "Staff and Pilots did a great job. Wheelchair was much apprecciated!!! Everything was on time or ahead of it. Great landing!! Wish you didn't charge for baggage and would like better snacks--oh for the good old days!"

Cons: "United had 3 gate changes. Ok sometimes that happens. This was said due to a storm out of colorado"

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
