No WiFi on this plane. My butt was sore for almost the entire trip, and I was in a first class seat. I’m very tall and the headrest didn’t adjust vertically, so my neck was sore, too. Ticket counter, TSA, gate, cockpit and cabin personnel couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful, and I was a challenge, since I brought my mobility scooter with me on the trip for the first time. Kudos to one and all.

Alaska air out me in standby for a 4 on flight that was already overbooked and had 10 people in front of me.

My carry-on had to be checked in because the wheels barely fit. I felt it was difficult to locate the closest emergency exit; the signs were not so obvious."
Pros: "On time, easy to get through the check-in lines."
Cons: "No in-seat entertainment causes the "poor" above, but I did not expect entertainment."

Pros: "efficient boarding"
Cons: "not readily providing pens to fill out declaration forms. felt pressure to ask someone else for a pen to fill out form. It is airline requirement so it shouldn't be passenger's responsibility to find a pen. if a problem for airlines then they should takecare of the requirement at gate when there is time and they could easily provide the pens."
Pros: "I love the the USB plugs at every seat. It came I handy when I needed to charge my phone"

Cons: "Food, leg room!"
Pros: "Short island hop but still great staff is just HAPPY"
Cons: "Gate not available on arrival. Sat on tarmac for awhile."
Pros: "The only reason I gave a “good” rating for this flight is because the crew & staff were courteous and patient, given the chaos."
Cons: "A lot happened. First system was down in SJC so it delayed boarding. Also passengers without seat assigned (and for some reason there were a lot of us) had to wait until all other passengers boarded before seats were assigned. Then in HNL we had to wait over 30 minutes before baggage came out."
Pros: "Entire process was amazing!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was very good and met all our needs."
Cons: "Free entertainment from LA to Honolulu."
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Pros: "Fantastic attendants, clean, overal A+"

Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal."
Cons: "The food did not live up to the hype"
Pros: "Happy time more fun so nice feel great will come back again and again Great to travel"
Cons: "Scared to see someone violently"
Cons: "Most airlines offer free entertainment on long distance domestic flights as long as you bring your own headphones. This is a 5-hour flight. Why would Hawaiian Airline want to charge $7.99 for viewing a movie?"
Cons: "Husband and I upgraded our seats, only to board and settle in and be asked that one of us leave the seat we paid for because they made an error and double booked one of the two seats."
Pros: "Quick problem solving and excellent service when my assigned seats were not the same on the boarding pass. The awesome safety video from around the islands. The crew was very efficient and kind. The breakfast mea was just right. Milk with good coffee! Especially liked that HA offers plenty of water! Mahalo nui loa!"

Cons: "The seats are not comfortable for the time of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff,"
Cons: "Baggage claim in separate building, not easy time finding bags then back to car rental pickup"
Pros: "I like that they gave a meal during the flight, especially since it was a 6 hour one. Food wasn’t too special: a hot sandwich, chips, and cookie. Good overall atmosphere. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "When checking in, there wasn’t any seats available. Needed to wait at the gate to finally get seat assignment, after boarding already started. Traveling as a party of two, was lucky to be able to sit together for a full flight. Also, all entertainment options cost money. For other airlines, some cost money and some did not. For a long flight, I would expect free entertainment, but I might be spoiled by flights to China."
Pros: "Good price, friendly crew, clean"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold, no blankets, food terrible, plane malfunction caused 1 hr delay; poor communication caused serious stress"
Pros: "Everything else! Except the pilot had to make 2 descent because of flap malfunction Pilot landed safely the second time Thank you to the skilled pilot & crew!"
Cons: "Maintenance issues !!!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "They changed the flight time on my return from OGG to SJC and I missed my Southwest connecting flight to SNA. I had to fly into LAX arriving after 11pm and had to take Uber home which cost me $40. I tried to have me fly direct from OGG to LAX but they wanted to charge me $235. I had made reservations way in advance and did not anticipate changed flight times."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing to not like about this flight"
Pros: "Nice seats, and staff and good food."
Cons: "Plane should be equipped with wifi."

Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Got in. On time"
Cons: "Wait for baggage"
Pros: "Complimentary food and snacks."
Cons: "You have fill out a form when you get to Hawaii. They should provide pens for us to fill it out instead of making us ask our neighbors for pens."
Pros: "the assigned seat I chose"
Cons: "the cookies are too small. there was no plug to charge my phone or laptop. there was no tv in the headrest. when did they stop doing that? i've always had at least a plug to charge stuff"
Pros: "Cheerful, helpful staff."
Cons: "Boarding que."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and very helpful getting us to our connecting flight to Kona since we arrived late, due to equipment problems leaving Sacramento. A free meal was a welcome surprise."
Pros: "Decent seats and entertainment."
Cons: "Cabin crew was very disengaged. Unfriendly. Destroyed my bag then said they wouldn't pay to fix it."
Pros: "Easy check in. Wheelchair came right away."
Cons: "I wasn't able to pick my seat. Ended up ok, but...."
Pros: "I never knew it could be this bad. 30 years of travel globally and you've found a new nadir. Keep in mind this is ALL a review of mismanagement. Staff were friendlish and good people it seemed.. just following antiquated equipment and systems given by management. Key flaws: No online or at check in seat assignment. Had to go to gate. Even though dozens of seats. Why??? Check in in herd an hour early a debacle.. again why??? No plug, no USB, no wifi, no movie on 6 hour flight??? Again it is in stark contrast to immensely support competitors. Sell to someone competent. Mahalo."
Cons: "?"
Pros: "Kind stewardesses, good food and snacks, and friendly people. This being a long awaited visit with my daughter, my flight was a great transition for which I am so thankful!"
Cons: "The flight was long and my back gets tired but none of that has any reflection on the high quality of service I received."
Pros: "Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)"
Cons: "Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(."
Pros: "New plane with slide seat when recline was excellent. Great storage overhead bin."
Cons: "They arrived at gate 34-38 area which was during the construction and passenger got lost after getting off the plane. There was wikiwiki bus shuttle to the inter island terminal but people without check in luggage lost about 30min at the airport. Hawaiian Airlines should work harder to be prompt on the arrival gate every time. Very unpredictable and inefficient."
Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."
Pros: "Loved the customer service all the way. All of the employees were very attentive and were genuinely interested in helping everyone."
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like. I really liked everything."
Pros: "The seats are better than anything I've experienced in the cattle car, which doesn't make them great, and the leg room was OK (I'm 6"). I was pleased to find out they included a meal for free, as I hadn't bought anything to eat for the 5 1/2 hr flight. Overall a better than average flight, and it was on time."
Pros: "Crews personality demonstrated professional and courteous."
Cons: "Food offered was precooked wrapped in plastic egg McMuffin version. As title suggested bland and tasteless."
Pros: "As always, the crew was phenomenal and very friendly, and meal was better than my own cooking!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, on some of these older planes, there are no power outlets or USB ports for charging my phone."
Cons: "Requested a window seat for my disabled daughter in February for our July flight. Agent assured us she would be in a seat with a window. When we got to our seat there was NO window. Of all the seats with windows on this plane, how could someone do this? Then when we loaded they placed one of our carryon bags in the back of the plane. We had to wait until everyone departed before getting our bag. Never again on Hawaiian Airlines. Still have to take the return flight. Not looking forward to the flight..."
Pros: "On time, great flight attendants, free upgrade offered"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Seat 12a was locked in place and didn't recline."

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: "Crew was great very clean and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Food was very inapropriate for the hr"
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: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
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: "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: "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: "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: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."
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."
Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
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: "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: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"
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: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours and caused me to miss my connecting flight. Next available flight was a 6 hour layover that I was not expecting."
Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"
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."
Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
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."

The service on board was wonderful.

Cons: "Smallest plane ever. Absolutely no leg room or overhead space."
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."
Pros: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"
Cons: "Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly."
Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device. And no power - neither usb nor 3 prong"
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."
Cons: "Another delay on second segment of cross country flight — this time for maintenance issues that were never fully explained. took off an hour late from DFW."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."
Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"
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: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."
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."
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: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"
Cons: "51/2 hour delay!! Should have brought in another plane."
Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."
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"
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
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: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"
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"
Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."
Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."
Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"
Pros: "Crew was very upbeat and attentive to passengers. We sat in Main Cabin plus and there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "1. Limited menu of food for purchase 2. wifi did not work over the Pacific--their wifi is ground based rather than satellite based."
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."
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"
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."
Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"

Cons: "The wifi partially worked but I was trying to download songs onto my device and the wifi didn’t let me download anything."
Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"
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."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and the leg space is nonexistent."
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "Everyone was nice, and the flight was on time. Checked in with the app and just a carry on, so my day was hassle free."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything. It was a good flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."

Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."
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: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"
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"
Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"
Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Half the flight booked, they let us switch to better seats!"
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: "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."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
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"
Cons: "The HI Ag questionnaire: why? what value?"
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!"
Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
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: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed so when I landed I had to run to the terminal to see if I can Catch my second flight I was worried my whole flight because I thought that I was going to miss the second flight and that my vacation was going to be delayed. Luckily they had not taken off and I think that they waited for us thank God and the crew"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. I was in the last row and was lulled to sleep by the engines."
Cons: "I had to check my second bag because they had no room for it in the bins. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I got to take it for no charge, and didn't have to lug it through the sirport."
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"
