Easy to check-in and smooth flight.

I booked a flight SJC to ORD. It included a layover in LAX. I had to transfer my own baggage and pay for baggage twice!

Astute. Accommodating. Auxiliary

Pros: "एस"
Cons: "Some extra snacks"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes."
Cons: "When boarding was delayed due to extra security (drug sniffing dogs) it would have been appropriate to make announcements for passengers needing to board immediately, allowed to identify and moved to the head of the line. We were there an hour and a half early with no luggage to check and we missed our flight by minutes. We actually saw our plane with the doors closed. Frustrating!"
Cons: "The seats/head rests were very uncomfortable, they just seemed to be worn down."
Pros: "All smooth."
Cons: "All okay"
Pros: "Seats looked new and clean. Flight came in early."
Cons: "The front desk gate associates stated that it was a full flight and there would be ZERO spots left for carry on luggage for me in the overhead bins. Therefore, I was told I MUST check my luggage, but there were SEVERAL open spots in the overhead bins when I got there! I do NOT appreciate this!"
Pros: "Love the coffee cookies."
Cons: "2 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "Quick and organized."
Cons: "Once we we're boarded, it did take a while to leave. But great experience overall."
Pros: "Crew so polite and friendly. Also very accommodating with young man with special needs."
Pros: "Crew very helpful especially considering I had a child with me. Boarding process was very easy. Departure process was very easy."
Cons: "Food and seating could have been better considering the price for first class."
Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"
Pros: "Service, airport, and ease were great."
Cons: "Gate location for Alaska Airlines was confusing at SJC (San Jose Airport), and they closed the doors early, so I barely made it in time! Is Alaska Airlines in two different terminals?"
Cons: "the overhead storage was tiny!"
Pros: "Over all quick experience"
Cons: "Don’t really lnow"
Cons: "Delayed"
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: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."
Cons: "My experience: Animal Abuse during boarding, cancellation of flights every single time I’ve booked flights, horrible mess with customer service, just don’t care about people..."
Pros: "All the ladies (and the pilot) who helped us were so lovely and helpful! Thanks for such a wonderful experience ❤"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no explanation was provided until we waited more than 30 minutes"
Pros: "Great staff, fast boarding, good snacks."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Left on time. Flight was super smooth."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was so darn efficient and the pilot was so funny over the speaker! Thank you Alaska for slaying this flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Crew was nice, no issues."
Cons: "Ticket confirmation numbers are not provided with third party companies. I tried e-ticket #, confirmation #, reservation #s and none of it worked. The flight rep at the counter printed a ticket and told me the number listed on it my confirmation # and I should use it on my way back. That # was expired when I was having problems checking in online."
Cons: "The man next to me left his phone on so he could text."
Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was great. Nice app onboard for watching movies...free!"
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but I am a little over weight and the flight was tight."
Pros: "The booking through Kayak was quick, easy and accurate and the actual flight from SJC to PDX was on time and comfortable, even in the main cabin."
Cons: "The Alaska gate attendant at SJC, whose name I would provide but then this review might not be accepted, was very discourteous and non professional. He displayed exceptionally poor customer service. This was in contrast to the cabin attendants and other crew members. His demeanor was such that it may discourage me from booking with Alaska in the future. BTW, this was my first flight with AS in many years. I do fly a lot but use other carriers."
Pros: "Very happy with both the service and crew!"
Cons: "Did not like the rates for wifi. First r such a short flight it should be FREE."
Pros: "On time and efficient service, Alaska made the entire journey easy and terrific. I will continue to use this airline it is a mile above the rest."
Pros: "I was able to change my flight a bit earlier than the six hour window (the Alaska air policy) for a reduce fee, I was thrilled!"
Cons: "No complaints"
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!"
Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"
Pros: "They began boarding early, left on time, arrived early, baggage available quickly. Great crew. Helpful and friendly. Smooth takeoff and landing. Pilot shared relevant details with passengers, nice to know what to expect. They served Starbucks coffee; better than the usual on other airlines."
Cons: "A wheel broke off of my suitcase but they got on it right away to compensate (repair or replace); I'm sure this will be handled - no pun intended - properly! :)"
Pros: "Timing and price"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "They are consistent"
Cons: "Wish they flew more places."
Pros: "Friendly crew, free mai tai."
Cons: "Pay for baggage."
Cons: "I really hated the crew member trying to sell the Alaska visa card. I do not expect to be bombarded with advertising when I have no option to avoid it. If my only choice to avoid it is to fly another airline, I will."
Cons: "I left my library book and no one ever contacted me or responded to my lost item report"
Pros: "Peaceful"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "This flight was on time. However my return flight from EWR-SJC was cancelled!"
Cons: "I received text messages that my return flight EWR-SJC on 4/17 was delayed. About 2 hours later they said the flight was cancelled with no explanation given. I was informed that they booked me on another flight to San Diego arriving 10:30pm (what good does that do me when I need to get back to San Jose?!). I called Alaska and was on hold for 25minutes before speaking to an agent. Explained the situation and she was able to help and book me on two United flights on 4/18. I experienced a lot of aggravation on this trip. The only solace is that Alaska issued a $400 credit. That is nice but I would like to get an explanation of what happened here!"
Pros: "Nice crew and yum cheese plate"
Cons: "Late boarding and late arrival."
Pros: "I loved that on the way home to Hawaii there was an option to get an app to access free movies and TV shows. It was awesome!"
Cons: "I tried going from the Entertainment link to the free chat link but it didn't work. Maybe I was at the wrong altitude or something but it would have been nice if I could switch between the two option of chatting and watching the movies and TV."
Pros: "more legroom, agent allowed me to move to a row with an empty seat."
Cons: "I think the "free" maitai was pretty awful.....would skip it next time. Hardly representative of island quality."

There was no entertainment and there was only a snack for "food." But as it was a two-hour flight, no more was to be expected.

The staff was very friendly and professional.

Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded"
Pros: "It suited the time i could travel"
Cons: "I felt although they said the two attendants were great they were at best mediocre especially the man"
Pros: "Very fast and efficient boarding process. We began moving right when they closed the door. Smooth flight, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Stop charging $2 for headphones lol"
Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."
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."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."
Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"
Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."
Pros: "The seats are probably the most comfy of all the flights I’ve taken. All the crew was super nice."
Cons: "On my delta app it said we’d have the TVs again but we didn’t have any this time."
Pros: "The crew asked a passenger to move so we could all sit together. It was awesome. :)"
Cons: "Duration"
Pros: "Delta is my favorite airline. Smaller planes with two seats two a row."
Cons: "I was told to check my luggage even though there was still overhead bin space."
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"
Cons: "5 hours delayed for no apparent reason. Understaffed in SJC to handle this."
Pros: "Good clean aircraft. Fairly comfortable seats. Even had a power outlet in my row. Not too bad for an aircraft from the late 70s."
Cons: "for some reason, i had to pay to gate check a bag. It didnt seem like anyone else did while boarding my flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."
Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Pros: "No food, no entertainment but the crew were nice and the process was painless. Recommended"
Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."
Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"
Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."
Pros: "I liked the boarding process."
Cons: "Bigger seats are more helpful."
Cons: "Delay over one hour."
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "the flight on Delta and Virgin Atlantic was nothing other than brilliant!"
Cons: "everything - service - facilities - food - amenities - an overall wonderful experience!"
Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."
Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."
Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Pros: "delivered as expected"
Cons: "drink cart earlier and more often"
Cons: "Flight could have been on time"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"
Cons: "5 delays with the flight. Had to Switch to a flight leaving from SFO and pay $60 for an Uber to get to SFO"
Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."
Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."
Cons: "Flight path at the end had to many turns kinda made me sick"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"
Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"

very small overhead bins. neither of my undersized pieces fit. both had to go under my seat. luckily, the passenger next to me still had room for their bag too.

Cons: "More food options would have been great. I asked for the everything bun burger but didn’t get it brought to me."
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"
Cons: "Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Stop pretending I can take a carry on. I'm boarding last, and guaranteed I'm going to have to check my carry-on."
Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Cons: "2 hour delay."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."
Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."
Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Dear United crew, there are definitely a bunch of great people amongst you. Can you please tell your fellow colleagues to start treating passengers as customers ... no need to leave your good spirits at home, just bring it on the plane ... starting with a smile! And yes, in seat power was not working. PS I wonder who decided on the power outlet placement ... 1.5M flying miles on United."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"
Cons: "Had a one hour delay on thtarmac waiting for de-icing...weather related."
Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."
Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"
Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"
Cons: "I appreciate the in-flight entertainment idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired."
Pros: "Flight was late"
Pros: "service.snack"
Cons: "some folks didn't use ear phones watching shows so i had to hear annoying entail mentioned selections. I had ear plugs fortunately :) didn't find anything I'd watch in entertainment. enjoy learning/science/documentaries"
Pros: "The attendants tried to be cheerful in a difficult situation."
Cons: "Once we were boarded we waited for a long time in a crowded stifling hot plane. Requests to the crew were met with helplessness on their part!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"
Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."
Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "the large Wide body plan"
Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."
Pros: "It was good overall"
Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."
Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"
Pros: "The crew was polite and courteous. Aircraft was clean. The flight even landed way ahead of schedule. Overall a great return flight"
Cons: "The food seemed overpriced for what it was. I passed as it didn't look very appealing."
Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"
Pros: "Again, great staff at the gate and crew aboard. Short flight but very comfortable."
Cons: "It was freezing!"
Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."
Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
Pros: "On time both ways"
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."
Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous. Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Cons: "Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
