Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Some extra snacks"
Cons: "Grown crew at the counter"
Pros: "Great crew! Few passengers as it was Sun night of a 3 day holiday weekend (best time to travel!). On time departure, early arrival, smooth flight."

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"

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."

Pros: "Fairly swift boarding. Comfortable seats Cocktails and snacks Free movies Free messaging over WI-FI"
Cons: "The last row in first class may have been a mistake. The person in the row behind me kept ramming into my seat as if they didn’t understand the dimensions of their own body. Not the airline’s fault."

Cons: "All out of food... morning flight an no warning or anything g. We could have ran an got something before boarding started .... they drive the cart by with what I guess... the only 2 options of each category for the first 10 people... to then say... o sorry we have nothing.. An no compensation for it but sorry.... do u a humus pack for 8 bucks.... then one second later when my wife decides she wants it... they say they just gave away the last one... it was redic. Not to mention weren't even all the way in the back Glad to see a few people up front able to eat..."
Pros: "The plug ins for my phone"

Pros: "easy boarding, left on time, no delays, landed on time & quick to exit, flight crew was outstanding, I knew not to bring a rollerboard suitcase on this small plane so I did not have to gate check my bag"
Cons: "the plane on this flight is small, rather uncomfortable seat in 1A due to narrowness of plane in front, but for a nonstop from EUG to SJC it's worth it"

Pros: "They are great"
Pros: "Timing and price"
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."
Cons: "I left my library book and no one ever contacted me or responded to my lost item report"
Pros: "Nine was great."
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 was able to get on the plane fairly quickly"

Pros: "Nothing stood out as excellent except that we got there on time."
Cons: "I have usually flown with Virgin America. Uncomfortable seats both along your spine and on your bottom. After boarding the plane, it was very stuffy...no air from the vent. After take off, very little air thru the opened vent. No built in screen as compared to Virgin for movies, music, and a flight map....it's about $10 to rent a tablet to watch things with Alaska. Just before landing they played a commercial advertising their credit card....Oh no, I don't want to listen to commercials on the flight. That will probably cause me to book with another carrier in the future. I HATE COMMERCIALS."
Pros: "Both the departure and return flights took less time than expected. No turbulence that I recall. Quick exit once we landed."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. There was no power outlets unless you were in first class. The complimentary snacks were coffee flavored. 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: "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: "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: "Boyfriend broke up with me. Forfeited tickets ☹️️ With I could've gone"
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."
Cons: "We didn't have space for our carry on luggage! We try to avoid baggage claim so we can get off the plane easily, but they ended up checking our bag. I feel when that instance occurs there should be some type of compensation/reward or points for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Did not have to wait in long lines because of the TSA pre boarding short cut. Love this!"
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"

Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"

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."
Pros: "Once inside the plane every thing was excellent. Very confortable. Great costumer service."
Cons: "They changed the gate it was unclear and hard to find someone to tell us where to go. Once we found someone the lady yelling at everyone where to go was very rude and rushed. Once we found the second gate the crew at the desk was very nice and helpful."

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.............."

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: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."

Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "They pushed my flight forward 15 hours but didn't tell me until five hours before my flight. Not only that but they didn't change the second leg of my trip so I was on the phone for an hour trying to straighten it out. Very stressful."

Pros: "Staff was very helpful and flight arrived ahead of time."
Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo salio a tiempo, tamien que los sobrecargos son muy amables y el abordaje aunque se hacen unas lineas enormes es un tanto veloz conciderando la muchedumbre, con el poco tiempo que tienen para ocupar la cabina en realidad hacen milagros, mil dracias"
Cons: "El bocadillo que ofrecen es muy pobre y en mi criterio o mejor no proveer nada o mejorar la calidad, el cafe, bueno; deja mucho que decear. Y bueno que decir de el espacio entre acientos, va uno con las rodillas en el respaldo de el vecino al frente pero bueno en fin no esta todo tan mal, AeroMexico Gracias por sus atenciones."
Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."

ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "went to Cancun and out of the four flights, only had in flight entertainment once. Ac was barely working and in terms of beverages it was only coke, sprite, water, coffee or juice. Seen better selection on every other airline I've flown in. Seat cushion barely there."
Cons: "This airline seemed to be unprepared at every step of the way. When I showed up to the airport to check my baggage (this was 2 hours before my flight) there was a huge line of people already there. I went to the back of the line and after 15 minutes of not moving I texted my family that I might be missing my flight. As I got closer to the front a nervous and overwhelmed Aeromexico employee went to the back of the line and handed the last person a paper and told her she would be the last person allowed on the flight. Anyone lined up after her was turned away because they had showed up too late. It seemed to me that those people would have made it onto the flight if the airline had been prepared and ready to check everyone in on time. When I was finally able to check my bag there were only 20 minutes left until my flight was supposed to depart. I rushed to the security checkpoint and ran to my gate in fear of missing my flight, only to find another large line of people. They hadn't even started boarding! After waiting 10 minutes in line (10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart), the crew slowly strolled to the gate. They didn't even seem to care. Overall, my experience was below average, but seeing how people were not allowed to board due to the airline not being prepared for this flight, I would say I won't be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding took too long. People put personal items in the compartments so that made no room for everyyto put their carry on in the plaine."
Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"
Cons: ". . . because of delays. Cannot comment but see above."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."
Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."
Pros: "The flight was going great, very comfortable and good food"
Cons: "Extremely important luggage was lost"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and no one from Aeromexico wants to help."
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."
Pros: "It is a good airplane very modern"
Cons: "Delayed. We wait almost three hours in the airplane."
Cons: "Seats did not have any earphone connections."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs because a crew member got sick. Along with several passengers we missed our connecting flights and basically lost an entire day of vacation rebooking a flight later in the day. At one point before boarding, asked if we could be put on another flight and reimbursed and could not get a straight answer. Big part of the delay was luggage being sorted out to remove the bags of passengers they oversold flights too. It's been one of the longest days ever."
Pros: "I wish I could post pictures of the broken magazine holder in front of my seat and the tangled seat belt that I could barely tie. Anyone heavier than me would not be able to buckle up on that seat. It was also VERY cold. The people around me were all covered up in heavy jackets and hats. When I mentioned this to the crew,they treated me with disdain and she said they could do nothing. What a shame, this used to be a great airline."
Cons: "Rude crew members, broken seat belt, broken magazine holder, way too cold for comfort."
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: "drink cart earlier and more often"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in."
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!"
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."
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 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"
Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."
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: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
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"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
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: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
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: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
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."

Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Crew and boarding was great."
Cons: "Three trips around complex on train because of gate changes. Could have spent a short while eating, relaxing, instead of frantically thinking I was going to be late and miss my flight."
Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"
Cons: "Flight delayed and changed multiple times"
Pros: "Drinks and snacks were fine.. Entertainment OK"

Cons: "The wifi partially worked but I was trying to download songs onto my device and the wifi didn’t let me download anything."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
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."
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: "I enjoyed purchasing a full fare first class ticket for my vacation"
Cons: "I didn’t like being bumped off my flight and being placed on a later flight in coach section. No refund for lesser service."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
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."
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: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."
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."
Cons: "The crew was the worst ever!!! Very rude ladies who spent more time on their phones then serving the customers. They sucked"
Pros: "Service was terrific."
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"
Pros: "Nice crew and smooth travels. Good snacks and coffee."
Cons: "No drop down or seat screens."
Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"
Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Getting off the hot tin can!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because the AC was not working right. It never really cooled down much during the flight. They need to get their act together"
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"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."
Pros: "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: "Plane was 1/2 full; almost all tourists. Clean and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Snacks are really weak - and I paid for them!"
Pros: "Same exact as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I loved how easy it was to book the flight."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight within 24hrs and received no refund because I booked through priceline. However, there was no restriction or clause listed on the ticket stating that I had to cancel through priceline also. It really should not matter who I cancelled through, if I canceled within 24hrs the refund should be given. Also, the debits from my account said United as well as priceline taking me to United's web page to make the purchase. So of course one would think cancelling through United's site is appropriate. I'm very disappointed in United and will consider all other options (Airlines) before booking with them again. PS - United customer gave me the run around for 3 days knowing that it was their policy and they were the company who's keeping my money. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "First of all, I was excited to get to Puerto Vallarta! Unfortunately, we had a delay due to a child who got sick as the plane was backing from the gate. The crew was fantastic and had paramedics load the plane to check on toddler. The family deboarded and United crew cleaned the throw up. The pilots kept the passengers informed and we proceeded with the flight. The flight attendants were fantastic, particularly the brunette attendant who remembered me from a previous flight. Best flight attendant ever!! Thank you United!!!"
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: "I arrived at the aurport 1 hr 20 mins before flight - plenty if time to check in and make it to gate at a small airport ad Newark is. Wanted to check in online - the United System did not allow me to. Had to wait in line - long line due to holidays. I raised my hand and asked for assistance given the impending 1 hr cut off time for check in. Was told I should go to the special assustance line. Well, guess what - that line which was meant to be express service for fliers with special situations was moving with the speed of a tortoise - slower than the general line. Only 2 flight assistants were servicing, both incredibly slow. When asked politely that I need special assistance as I was approaching the 1 hr cut iff fir checkin, the United lady yelled at me instead of speeding up her slow motion. Bottom line, I missed my flight on a tiny airport dedpite arriving 1 hr 20 mins before flight. Had to wait 14 hrs overnight at the airport to catch the next flight because the United Airlines personnel are lazy, slow, inefficient, rude and no customer oriented. Terrible service."
Cons: "The flight I purchased was over booked. I had to leave a friend behind and travel on my own. I will never use United Airlines again."
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 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: "It was a great experience overall"
