Airline reviews

Cons: "Seats hard and didn’t recline. No food."

Pros: "The crew was awesome, the flight was fast, and I made it home safe. I love Alaska Airlines!"
Cons: "I wish there was free snacks for my 5-6 hour flight."

Pros: "Great flight and wonderful service"
Cons: "All was well"

Cons: "No seat-back entertainment on a long flight is not ok. If there was warning about that during the booking process, it was too subtle and I missed it. It was an unpleasant surprise. Also, the seats are just so stiff and uncomfortable. If this was a 3-hour flight, fine. But nearly 6 hours, no."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! Always love Alaska Airlines peeps. The flight left on time and arrived early too!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. Recaro doesn't seem to care about your bum for a 5+ hour flight. Hopefully the new seats are much better."

Pros: "the flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "getting assigned seats earlier."

Pros: "Very good attention in general"
Cons: "Improve the seats"

Cons: "Seats too close together, even in premium. Seats too thinly padded, but LOTS of leg room, especially in the seats right behind first class."

Pros: "The only enjoyable thing about my flight was the couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "We weren’t served drinks until nearly 2 hours in. They kept making announcements saying “it’s really turbulent and not safe” but I’ve flown a lot and we barely had any turbulence the entire flight and at no point was it unsafe. When it was calm they were hanging out and taking in the back."

Pros: "This was our first trip to Hawaii on Alaska and we were very happy with the experience. Plane on time, lots of overhead space, crew very pleasant and helpful. We fly to Hawaii at least four times a year and will be switching to Alaska as our preferred carrier."
Cons: "There was limited entertainment available on this older 737 plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and the service was good."
Cons: "Stuck next to self obsessed millenial who couldn't stop taking selfies of himself and he kept rubbing against me (apparently not noticing I was there?). He had plenty of space so it was weird."

Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."

Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."

Cons: "Our flight was changed to a later time. I selected new seTs but when we check in our seats had been changed and we were not sitting together. The internet was difficult to navigate For more than just my husband and myself"

Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."

Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."

Pros: "Crew was super friendly and gave good service to passengers."
Cons: "Boarding at San Jose was disorganized and poor."

Cons: "unprofessional workers who gossip about other workers and customers, dirty plane, no free food, and no aloha spirit."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was great. Nice app onboard for watching movies...free!"
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but I am a little over weight and the flight was tight."

Pros: "it was a very pleasant flight .everything was smooth except for a little delayed on the way back looking forward of flying with Alaska Airlines .a airlines"

Pros: "As always, the Alaska crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Food just is what it is. Free mai tai’s at the end of the flight we’re great!"

Pros: "The breakfast bowl was warm and filling"
Cons: "Cart service seemed rushed, the female FAs not as friendly or sincere as their counterparts"

Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Wireless entertainment did not work. Food choices were not appetizing. Offered free Maitai, but was never served."

Pros: "I alway love flying Alaska airlines. Their flights are on time and their staff is friendly and professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that you have to pay to rent a movie. It's provided through most airline carriers and I was shocked they were renting out tablets to view movies."

Pros: "Customer service and flight a little early!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."

Pros: "Rick was probably the best flight attendant I've ever encountered! Granted it was First Class, but he went absolve and beyond with our family."
Cons: "Plane was a tad run down, i.e.: cosmetically things were broken or falling apart."

Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."
Cons: "I don't the seating arrangement in a 737-800. Three rows on each side makes the window and middle passenger very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Loved it! Great food choices and we downloaded the app so we watched a few free movies!"
Cons: "I would like to have as much room in coach as first class, but that won't happen. :)"

Pros: "Seats are a little larger n more legroom for my 6'2" big man of a husband"

Pros: "There was more leg room than usual which was very nice. Free mimosa was fun."
Cons: "Service cart was in the aisle too much. Passengers couldn't get to the bathroom"

Pros: "boarding and disembark were good for premier as was seating comfort"
Cons: "There is no substitute for a wide body aircraft"

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: "comfortable seats in the exit rows at least"
Cons: "outdated entertainment options... the mai tai is pretty rough"

Pros: "The entertainment was practical"

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and personable. Food was excellent."

Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants"

Pros: "Convenient. On time. Polite service. Easy to book."
Cons: "No meal service is fine. But serving meals a la carte for extra money and other add on services for additional charges is similar to Ryanair. And Ryanair is much much cheaper fares."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"

Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked was my seats. Closer to the main door. The faster I get off this plane the faster my vacation starts. Maybe your employees need a vacation too!"
Cons: "The stewardess were quit rude made the whole experience horrible thanks Alaskaairline"

Pros: "Courteous crew, short flight, free drink, space still available in overhead compartment for my item, although boarded last"
Cons: "Other passenger seated in my seat had to move when I boarded, leak of water between inner& outer window panes Loose fixed wing bottom airflow closest to fuselage wiggled on takeoff& landing"

Pros: "Just a shout out to a very good flight crew!"
Cons: "Entertainment was limited, but enough to get by, and appreciated."

Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."

Cons: "The flight attendants on board the plane were amazing and I'm sure equally as frustrated as the passengers. The gates were mixed up at the airport. We were told we had to move gates and would be delayed one hour. One hour turned into two and just before noon they told us to rush boarding. If we didn't take off by noon the pilots would time out. They timed out and we had to deplane. Alaskan was not telling us very much information and we were again delayed until 2:15. We started boarding at about 1:35 and we sat on the plane until well after 2:15. Apparently there were mechanical issues and again we had to deplane. We, as were all of the other passengers, were extremely upset. They couldn't tell us what was going to happen. A supervisor came out and basically said I can refund you, you can rebook, or you can wait it out. There were limited spaces on flights for the next day. Finally, at 4:30, they boarded us again and took off at 5. The whole experience was extremely upsetting. Overall, we were delayed 7 and a half hours. We missed a whole day of vacation and lost money, with very little remorse or compensation from Alaskan airlines."

Pros: "We were treated with respect and kindness throughout the flight. There were 5 of us traveling together, two being 7 year olds, and they enjoyed watching movies and playing games to pass the time."

Pros: "No entertainment , horrible food."
Cons: "No comfort"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "It was disappointed that I paid to upgrade to first class and there was a cat next to me... I bonded with a group of other passengers over our cat allergys. Thankfully there was another passenger giving out beadryl. many people sneezing the whole flight. The passenger with the cat was nice, giving chocolate to all the flight attendants. At one point he had the cat out on His lap petting it... I was waken from my sleep with my eyes swollen shut and sneezing. you will see other complaints about this flight... As for me, I want my upgrade refunded. I did not eat, I did not watch movies.... I did not get to enjoy my flight."

Pros: "Service, seats, boarding time and lack of delays"
Cons: "I wasn't aware that in flight entertainment options were available in tablet form."

"Flight attendants have been very rude!"

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: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."

Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

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

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."

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"

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

Pros: "Crew and pilot were nice while we dealt with technical difficulties and had to stay on the plane"
Cons: "After missing all our other connections, our luggage was delayed for hours, we were only given $12 each for meal vouchers for an entire day of layover, we were not given the upgrade for the seats we originally paid for (nor seats together) only promised refunds. The line for service was 2 hours."

Cons: "Make the chairs more comfortable. Also I would rather buy good food not eat cookies."

Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"

Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"

Pros: "The airlines don't allow enough room to sit comfortably. I am 6' 2" 250 lbs. My knees touch the back of the seat in front of me and there is no room side to side. Very uncomfortable."

Cons: "I will never fly with American again."

Pros: "The movie selection on the flight was stellar."
Cons: "AA let me know that our flights were delayed to MIA, which would in effect, make up miss out connection to get to Kingston, Jamaica. They tried to rebook us, but for the NEXT day. So after calling, I got my ticket rebooked for an earlier flight, but I couldn’t do the same for my boyfriend’s. At the airport we requested he check in as standby, however, the rep checking us in said he couldn’t. We asked for other flights arriving on the same day at the original ticket & even looking across partner airlines, he said there was nothing. Hard to believe, but then eventually said he found something by way of Lax to AZ to MIA & then KIN that would arrive later that night. We quickly took it because it was getting late to check in for TSA for my flight, only to find out later that the ticket he printed was for arrival the next night - not at all what we agreed upon! What a waste of time, as if the money we spent on this vacation didn’t mean anything, and when I called to get compensated, I was told to write in to AA. Write in. It’s 2018. Who can I speak with to get compensated for our time & money being wasted? I understand it may not have been within AA control, however, I would have liked for them to have cared that we were inconvenienced as paying customers, instead of being told, in action & in words, that the inconvenience we were being put through (to no fault of our own) was no big deal & we should just suck up the money we are loosing as a result. Very disappointed ☹️"

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

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: "After flying 24 hours one of four bags got put on a later flight. The line at baggage service was so long that by the time I waited for the bag it arrived on another flight 2 hours of wait! Unbelievable! Disappointing. And by the way if a passenger is assigned to a seat that doesn’t recline it should be heavily discounted. Heavily as in half price of a normal seat. It really is sad that airline industry is not more service focused and more efficient."

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: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, attentive and polite."
Cons: "Fellow passengers didn’t feel there was adequate space, causing issues with armrests."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

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

Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "No entertainment monitor"

Cons: "45 min delay"

Pros: "Getting home 20 minutes earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "Pretzels are always stale"

Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."

Pros: "Today's trip.was ontime with a great crew. A big turnaround from our last trip."
Cons: "Zip"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."

Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Stewardess were not very friendly. Plane apparence inside was not updated needs overall refurbish Having to pay extra for 1st luggage and seat selection"

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

Pros: "The only good thing about the flight is that it was nonstop."
Cons: "This four-hour flight had no movie and no seatback entertainment system. It didn't even offer SiriusXM to listen to. How old exactly was this plane?!"

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "was not allowed upgrade! I only tasted the food it was not eatable. I am 70 years old and id rater starve to death than eat that food and no food to buy!"

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

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: "Airline is run like a circus, horrible experience going to and from Cusco from Lima. I do not know how their poor employees work under such stressful conditions. Spend the extra money and fly LAN or LATAM."

Pros: "They didn't delay our flight so that was good. My boyfriend's name also didn't show up on the reservation at the kiosk. One of the employees was happy to help and found him on the reservation."

"Great price and on time, don’t let the bad behavior customer return, restricted them for life."

Pros: "Overall flight was satisfactory experience."
Cons: "Movie selection for entertainment"

Cons: "Service was surprisingly lacking for first class. No refreshments offered prior to takeoff. Dinner was mediocre, what you would get in economy. Beverage served was a glass of wine and small bottle of water and that was it for the entire flight. On an earlier flight in economy, there were two times we were served refreshments. No one bothered to collect my empty water bottle the entire flight. And this is first class ??"

Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"

Cons: "Stewardess was mean when I asked for a mask"

Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"

Pros: "I really love Hawaii it was beautiful."
Cons: "It was perfect"

Pros: "Crew was great. We purchased economy plus and it was a good amount of leg room."
Cons: "The food options for kids were kind of lacking."

Pros: "The crew was outstanding and landing was smooth Very welcoming"
Cons: "I wish they would give us more snacks But overall it wa fantastic"

Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"

Pros: "I like the food and the movies you could watch on your phone. The United app."
Cons: "Don't have a negative feedback."

Pros: "Was offered complimentary food item and I am not sure why, perhaps my Star Alliance Gold status?"
Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."

Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."

Pros: "Gate crew was fine. Flight was smooth and on time, seating was reasonable. Food was just okay, but I don't have high expectations for airplane food."
Cons: "The English speaking flight attendant who announced various messages on the PA system, although a native English speaker, was horrible at speaking."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "extremely cramped, overcrowded"

Cons: "Boarding was a chaos, so many passengers didn’t know which line they should follow, everything was unbearably slow"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Long flight"

Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."

Pros: "We had arrived a little ahead of schedule"
Cons: "For an almost 6 hour flight, they chose a very small plane. Probably because they didn't sell enough seats on the flight so they downsized. Anyway, lots of people who boarded towards the end weren't able to store any carryon luggage. And as I listened to the crew talk to them, they weren't very nice about it. Sounded as if they were saying it's the passengers fault. We are allowed 1 carryon and 1 personal bag. For any flight that is longer than 3 hours, I believe the airlines should at least allow passengers to have 1 free check in. Then maybe we wouldn't be trying to carry everything on with us. Our flight to Hawaii wasn't very comfortable either. We had purchased economy plus but it didn't seem all that comfortable. Maybe because it was a smaller plane. I think it was a 737, not really sure but it had 3 seats on each side with no middle row. Food is for purchase! Outrageous."

Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"

Pros: "came early..."
Cons: "We could not take water with us to plane, traveled with kids 8 and 10. Did not get water even though I asked few times....kids started crying to get some water.....what is with the system??"

Cons: "My flights got changed and seat assignments changed so I did not get xtra leg room as I needed Also united did not know that I had a service dog even though I booked with that information"

Cons: "United has recently added a 9th column (not row) of seats in economy, further narrowing the seats (and removing padding). The comfort has gone from barely tolerable, to intolerable. Also, this is an 8 hour flight, and food is only available for sale. Finally, they've changed their inflight entertainment options to work only via wi-fi. The problem is, the wi-fi on the plain is insufficient to handle the load of the people on the plane, so it keeps cutting out/crashing."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and nice!"
Cons: "Hardly any space and no type of entertainment whatsoever and NO chargers, not even a USB charge port."

Cons: "Again, 3 hour delay after airplane was boarded due to a maintenance issue that should have been discovered way before. The captain also let passengers disembark which caused even more of a delay because we had to wait for everyone to finally board again after the plane was fixed."

Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"

Cons: "Crew members were not friendly. There was no in-flight entertainment available, and no snacks that were complimentary."

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Water and drinks were offered regularly. For those who had the app there was inflight entertainment. We paid for plus size seats and had enough leg room."
Cons: "I believe that on the long flights built in entertainment screens should be standard. Most people did not have the app and many spent 8.5 hours without anything to do. Food is not offered on this long flight unless you pay for it. You must walk to the very back of the plane where the food is in warmers. I got a hamburger and it was a bit dried out. Could have been worse...just hard to handle since tomato, lettuce and condiments were on the side. A larger person sat next to me and took use of the armrest between us which made me feel like I lost 4 inches of my personal space."

Pros: "Thanks for the ONE toffee cookie at the beginning of the 8 hour long flight."
Cons: "I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. There was one younger African American flight attendant with a light brown, long curl wig that didn't look like she wanted to be there. You can tell by all her eye rolls, sighs and not responding back to numerous thank yous given to her. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"

Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly for the most part."
Cons: "On both flghts we requested a bassinet for our 3 month old. We were told on the phone if one was available we were able to have it. Both flights had bassinets but we weren't allowed access to them. On our first leg the bassinet was in economy plus and we were economy. On the way home our fight was downsized to a smaller plane and the airline was too busy trying to cut 25 people off the fight they weren't able to give us a seat where the bassinet would be. We asked several flight attendants and got different answers from each one."

Pros: "Due to being late to the airport I didn't get on the flight however the staff was very courteous and rerouted me"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was great. Comfort was only good for me because I was in an exit row."
Cons: "United wouldn't open the doors even though the plane was right there, didn't pay for my accommodations because it was Lufthansa's delay that caused me to miss the flight, then couldn't book my family on anything earlier than the same flight the next day, which they then overbooked and almost couldn't get us on the plane again. I had to sit separately from my family."

Pros: "The crew on board the flights were always friendly and Stern with unruly customers. Very good job in that department."
Cons: "I am 5'10 and 155 lbs I wasn't so cramped in the sets that when the person infront of me put there seat back I couldn't cross my leg or sit comfortable. I can't imagine what a person any taller or larger then me felt. Oh also the average size man sitting extra to me was spilling over my seat. Luckily he did not smell and was very apologetic. The only reason I booked through united was because of how cheap they were. But with Lon delays. Rude check in emoployees, bad snacks, zero in flight entertainment 7.99 to watch tv? Come on you have us trapped already. (returning to Hawaii) and one of the worst seating set ups of my life. Yeah I'll gladly go back to delta."

Cons: "I am handicapped. Boarding agent abused me. Made me walk to plane on tarmac in stocking feet. Asked for wheel chair and was denied. Have congestive heart failure and could hardly make it on the plane. The man should be fired. Deputy sheriff with him was just as bad glad to go into more detail with someone. Will report united to govt. small Airport would not ever be reorder."

Pros: "That I made it home and had an open seat next to me"
Cons: "Service was unfriendly. Didn't have headphones, didn't have pillows. Seat was not much leg room. Plane had a hard landing with screeching tires, like a car that's spinning out of control. The passenger nearest me said that's the last time she's ever flying United, that she'll stick to Jawaiian from now on. I mirror her sentiments"

Pros: "We had economy plus seats, so I could still feel my legs and didn't have a near panic occurrence. Good news! The dents in my husband's knees from the previous flight are gone! A/C worked great."
Cons: "United flight attendants could use a good Dale Carnegie course. The attendants on our flight exuded "GO AWAY!" Our row mate (aisle) had a broken seat that she paid extra $$ for & she asked to be seated elsewhere. Attendant said there are no more seats. There was at least one seat in first-class; we could see it. She also asked for more pretzels......2 1/2 hours into the flight...the attendant said I gave them out already. One pack of pretzels? I wasn't offered any pretzels at all. And the movie choices....what?!?!?!?! I can't even begin to describe the disappointment that your "selection" of movies caused. This isn't a hop to Hawaii. It's long haul. Oh. And my feelings are still a little hurt I at being subjected to the SMELL of baking chocolate chip cookies that were being served in 1st class. Really? Superman vs Batman, Captain America, Barbershop II, Jungle Book, etc., AND having to smell cookies I can't have? It's just too much to take in on a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight landed safely and was only a few minutes late after delayed departure of 25 minutes."
Cons: "A problem passenger ruined the flight for me and several others. He continually left his seat when the seat belt sign was on. I figured he was back smoking or vaping in the lavatory as he came back smelling strongly of after shave, bit seeing him weave around he must've been drinking. Then he stood in the aisle and poured more after shave down his shirt and outside his shirt. The smell was so strong it gave me a headache and make me sick to my stomach. Then he left his seat and sat behind us somewhere with a woman. A flight attendant told another man to come up and sit where he had been sitting. After the man went to sleep this guy came up and kicked him out of his seat. Then he asked the guy by the windows to switch seats with him which the guy did Kama then he proceeded to make him move several times as he had to get out and get out of his seat looking for something. I'm not sure how these things are handled normally but this guy really ruined for me. Aren't there consequences for ignoring all the rules? I probably won't fly United again."

Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."

Pros: "I liked the flight because it was smooth with little to no turbulence."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that this was my first flight in years and I had questions about certain things that no one was available to answer."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"

Cons: "I Purchased 2 round trip tickets for myself and my son. My son had a change of plans and purchased another one way ticket to leave a week earlier. So his first leg of my purchase was not used. They resold that seat on May 27. So they made money Twice on that seat. Then when we checked in to return on 15 June. We were told his ticket had been cancelled and I had to purchase another ticket for his return. The flight was NOT sold out. My entire row of seats was empty. So I paid for 2 seats for the same flight. This is theft, coming and going and I am calling my lawyer!"

Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. It was a long flight, so glad that came around in between drink services to offer water."
Cons: "Not that much content on the entertainment device, several movies were only playing in Japanese and no option to change to English. My device kept shutting off at random times despite having full battery."

Pros: "The crew and staff worked hard to please. The new attendant did her job very well and we all celebrated her final training flight."
Cons: "Unacceptable warm temperature on flight from San Luis obispo to lax. It made the time very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Great entertainment. Most of crew was very nice."
Cons: "Computer problem delay. Then someone closed the door improperly, so back to the gate. Then we needed more fuel. Then we had to wait for "paperwork". Took off 2 hours late all of which was spent sitting on the plane."

Pros: "Had ways to stay entertained onboard"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable"
