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.

Pros: Quick and organized.
Cons: Once we we're boarded, it did take a while to leave. But great experience overall.

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

Cons: Flight 4 hours late.

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.

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: Great organization. I didn’t feel as though I was in a herd of cattle while boarding.

Cons: Flight was very delayed

Pros: They left and landed as scheduled
Cons: Nothing to complain about I loved the service flight and cleanliness of the plane

Pros: Fast and organized check in and boarding. Friendly staff.
Cons: Expensive airline food. Meals should be included for long flights.

Pros: Flight was on time and arrived on time
Cons: No free entertainment options for a six hour flight

Pros: The crew on the plane was so great. Really friendly so helpful. I wish I could remember all their names but Ken really stood out. He was such a happy and kind steward.
Cons: This plane was on the old side. But still clean and the crew was great.

Cons: Please keep the restroom cleaner, thanks!

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!
Cons: No fault of the airline, but I am a little over weight and the flight was tight.

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: Lots of room & the meal was a pleasant surprise
Cons: I REALLY could have used internet/wifi and a 110V power outlet - just about everybody else has one or the other or both.

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: Punctuality was excellent! Crew was good. Seats were comfortable.
Cons: There is no entertainment provided and the Wi Fi didn't work at all!

Pros: Timing and price
Cons: None

Pros: They are consistent
Cons: Wish they flew more places.

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.

Pros: I loved the extra room for feet. And the size of the overhead storage I loved the chocolate treat And the cheery steward chatter on the overhead speaker Best flight experience in many moons Looking forward to next Alaska experience
Cons: My seat 12 A. Had no window

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: The power outlet...
Cons: that it didn't have tight enough holes to hold the plug in place (it would keep falling)

Pros: the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time.
Cons: 1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort.

Pros: tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time
Cons: flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person

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: I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight.

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.

Cons: All overhead compartments full before I even got on the plane. I don't understand why airlines don't enforce the numbers. These compartments are labeled by number and I should get the space that comes with my seat.

Pros: Very pleasant and accommodating crew. On time.
Cons: Not crazy about the breakfast, but appreciated food.

Cons: Always amazing!!!!!!

Pros: Entire process was amazing!!!!!
Cons: Nothing!

Pros: POG juice!
Cons: Entertainment--what entertainment?

Pros: Boarding process

Pros: It’s wonderful to fly like our grandparents did with the style & comfort along with the service they enjoyed!! I cannot think of any other airline that serves a meal and on going snacks. I feel I got first class service (which I cannot afford) for a coach rate! Stepping onto the plane you get a sense of the islands. I’d recommend this airline to anyone!!
Cons: Being a 6 ft woman, leg room is important for me, which I had, but the seat where a bit close together.

Pros: Fast boarding
Cons: No entertainment

Pros: Boarding was great, seats were not too cramped, flight was very smooth.
Cons: Hawaiian Air changed our seat assignments which I did not find out about until checking in for our flight the night before. My wife and I were 20 rows apart and we were moved from aisle seats to window seats. Flight was fully booked so no way to change. The aircraft did not change, so I am unsure why seat assignments changed.

Pros: Everything was fine in general.
Cons: Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it.

Pros: Happy time more fun so nice feel great will come back again and again Great to travel
Cons: Scared to see someone violently

Pros: Nice service
Cons: A 6 hours flight and no food? Seriously??? Incredible lousy service for a vacation-airline!

Pros: Quick flight/ luggage off quick/ inexpensive!

Pros: Nothing they did not help and would not print my boarding pass
Cons: I was carrying on a bag and was unable to board due to their rules.

Pros: They offered a free light breakfast and they treated us great

Pros: Large full plane that had friendly staff and left on time. No sooner had it taken off than it seemed we were prepping to land

Cons: flight left late and onboard service was quite poor, including the so called meal of a mushy chicken parts sandwich. Also Hawaiian no longer responds when you push the service button. Unlikely I would fly Hawaiian again.

Pros: Great short flight

Pros: Amazing staff. Serving complimentary food and complimentary cary on baggage check in. Provide free drinks and entertainment.

Pros: Everyone was smiling and full of aloha spirit as always which is why i LOVE flying w Hawaiian!
Cons: Except this time... only time this has happened. Went to get boarding pass- had a small rolling suitcase (bought specifically for carry on and have used for last two years flying 6+ times per year) and a shoulder bag/purse. A woman flagged me down a so walked by saying my rolling case was too large an too heavy. I said “oh no i use this everytime i fly. It’s specifcally for carry on. Also it’s not even full so there’s no way it’s too heavy” also how would she know by looking how much it weights? In short she got very angry at me and said i have no choice but to check it. Then went over to counter and the lady said “you don’t need to check this is the correct size” she was very nice and i explained what happened. I’m just telling you this as maybe some of the newer employees are taking their jobs too seriously. Aloha!

Pros: Not much to like when your reservation is not upheld and your property is lost and you miss your intended outing due to no fault of your own. Really poor customer service.
Cons: I didn't like any of it.

Pros: Larger seats. Snacks
Cons: Check in was a pain but we survived.

Cons: Air craft too old. Lot of noise in the back section. Not comfortable for economy seating.

Pros: The flight was on schedule and landed in Maui as scheduled. The bags were delivered within 20 minutes of arrival. The plane was clean and the crew was professional, polite and helpful.

Cons: Flight was delayed 6+ hours and no alerts or messages sent to passengers even though it was a 7:30am flight. I would have expected to receive an email or text.

Pros: Our first flight on Hawaiian Airlines. Short but wonderful staff

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: On schedule

Cons: bad pog

Cons: nothing

Pros: Crew was very friendly and cheerful. Lots of them and they worked efficiently and quickly.
Cons: It was freezing the whole time. My bad for not requesting them to make it warmer. Lots of people put on jackets or sweaters so I wasn't the only one.

Cons: No in flight entertainment?

Pros: Short flight no food just a drink

Pros: Got in. On time
Cons: Wait for baggage

Pros: I really had a comfortable ride- thank you as always!

Pros: There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name.
Cons: The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything! I realize mechanical failures happen but we were delayed over 5 hours with no refund or credit and then instead of lunch we were handed boxes with cookies and a beef stick that I wouldnt give my dog. then to top it off, Our entire day was ruined and couldn't make our non-refundable dinner reservation in the evening which cost us $85 per person!

Pros: Excellent service, comfortable seats, good food.
Cons: Entertainment system is not good. $8 to watch a movie. Should be free as other international and trans Atlantic/pacific airlines offer.

Pros: Cheerful, helpful staff.
Cons: Boarding que.

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: Favorite flight. Short and sweet. Great crew and efficiency. Love the simplicity of the plane.

Pros: Our brakes were not up to par to land in Kauai. Detour to Honolulu. Sucked!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Food and Entertainment are 3☆ because it is non applicable

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: staff were great and friendly and helpful
Cons: not a big deal but 2 things: 1) plane was a bit dirty in between the seats. 2) we also were in the terminal but getting food when we heard our names on the overhead pager saying they were going to close the gate in 5 minutes and if we didn't get on we'd be left behind. That was 30 minutes before take off that they were going to close the gate. We rushed over and ended up boarding and then waiting on the plane forever. not sure whey they need to get everyone on so early. I guess i'm used to flying southwest airlines where they let people run up 5 minutes before they close the gates.

Pros: The people in the plane are fine.
Cons: Hawaiian air's customer service does NOT exist. When I had a problem and needed a simple change on a ticket because documented medical emergency they would not help. I had to purchase a second ticket for the same flight which cost me 1,100.00. I will forever bad mouth this airline until I get satisfaction which will never come.

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: Good service
Cons: No movies - too cod in the cabin

Pros: Close to on time, luggage available quickly at baggage area
Cons: N/A

Pros: Comfortable with good service

Pros: The flight crew was nice.
Cons: The plane was delayed by more than 4 hours. I had activities planned for the afternoon and had to cancel those. There was nobody from Hawaiian at the gate or in the terminal. There was no reason given for the delay. I later found out they had come in late the day before and had no crew on hand to fly... very bad juju from hawaiian.

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: Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June.

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

Cons: Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+.

Pros: Leg room
Cons: Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded

Pros: Entertainment
Cons: Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space

Cons: Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),

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: 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.

Cons: Great flight

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: crew found me an outlet for laptop
Cons: nothing

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Nothing

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: Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together
Cons: Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles

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: Snacks & drinks & TV movies good
Cons: One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position

Pros: I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise.
Cons: Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected.

Pros: Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy.
Cons: Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see.

Pros: Speedy boarding and deplaning.
Cons: The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic.

Pros: Flight ifself was okay once on the plane
Cons: 5 hours delayed for no apparent reason. Understaffed in SJC to handle this.

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.

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: 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: Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY.
Cons: Had to pay for meal despite length if flight.

Pros: The flight was very quick.
Cons: They didn't serve us water.

Cons: Delay over one hour.

Pros: The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster.
Cons: No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!

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: Movie selection
Cons: They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries.

Pros: Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe

Pros: Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline.
Cons: Nothing 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: Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room.

Pros: Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected.
Cons: Very little seating at Phoenix airport.

Cons: In flight entertainment was broken

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: One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice.

Pros: Great flight

Pros: The seat? Very uncomfortable
Cons: The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable

Pros: I love the inflight entertainment

Cons: Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options.

Cons: Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong.

Pros: It didn’t happen
Cons: It didn’t happen

Pros: M

Pros: Fast boarding
Cons: No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease

Cons: The crew, the whole experience,

Pros: Good entertainment
Cons: Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL

Pros: Easy check in and boarding
Cons: Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway

Pros: Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in.

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: 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.

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.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing.

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?

Pros: Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good.
Cons: My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day.

Cons: This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again

Pros: Great vegetarian meal.

Cons: Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience.

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: Same as above
Cons: Same as above

Pros: The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!

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: 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: 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: Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together

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: Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: We had a very pleasant staff!

Pros: Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later.

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: It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!

Cons: The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed.

Pros: Boarding was fast.
Cons: No internet on flight. No movies on flight. Plane was older. Seats were uncomfortable.

Pros: The gate agent was able to find me another option.
Cons: The phone agent was really bad at helping.
