The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours and we were not notified in advance. There was no meals on the flight, and we were also not notified of this until right before the flight.

Snack is full of empty calories.

They were on time. Staff was professional and pleasant. Allowed me to have a carry on and select my seat. Very reasonable cost. Easy online check on and sms reminders. Will fly with them again.

The flight attendants were super friendly and attentive. I wish there were better entertainment options and a wider movie selection.

Great service

Pros: "एस"
Cons: "Some extra snacks"
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "Food choices on the plane would have been good"
Cons: "More food/snacks and water"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great! Lots of room and very comfortable seating."
Cons: "I found some members of staff to be a bit rude. When other passengers asked questions or did something wrong (that was a minor issue), one of the staff members in particular talked down to them and treated them like they were stupid."
Cons: "Grown crew at the counter"
Pros: "Overall pleasant flight. Outstanding service by the entire Alaska Airlines crew. Captain of the flight was fenomanal, a very valued member of Alaska Airlines I have no doubts about that. Excellent service by all. Contentment and a relaxing,not to mention smooth, experience."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Made the extended flight more comfortable"
Cons: "Stay clear of Diane who transferred from Columbus, OH and now works in the San Diego Airport. She targets anyone over 250 pounds and classifies them as oversized and will go through hell to charge the customer for an additional seat. Even when the plane is at half capacity."
Pros: "Crew and seat great."
Cons: "Taking a bus to walk up stairs to board needs to improve."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "less repeated rules"
Cons: "I don’t like the fact that 1st class passengers get more food options than other passengers. If the restrictions of serving food are for health reasons w Covid you shouldn’t be making exceptions, its hypocritical and illogical."
Pros: "This flight had more leg room in the first class A aisle than the connecting flight from San Diego to Seattle. The crew and attendants were amazing and very nice."
Cons: "Nothing, it was top notch."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Seems like the complete lack of beverages due to covid is a little overkill. Most of the items were single serving anyway so doing away with them doesnt feel like mitigating anything more than an additional expense for the company. Not a huge deal though in light of the other losses the industry is reeling from while trying to adjust"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was so comfy! I slept great! And the plane landed smoothly!"
Cons: "First class next time"
Pros: "The flight arrived 30 mins early!"
Cons: "The stewardess did not give me a cookie :("
Pros: "Crew was amazing and food was surprisingly good. I was in first class however"
Cons: "A little more food on the 4+ hour flight. Otherwise a great experience!!"
Pros: "I'm an aviation enthusiast. It was the plane I liked..."
Cons: "Nothing that Alaska Air could have fixed."
Pros: "The boarding and flight were quick. The prime seat was comfortable (of course I had to pay for it, though it wasn't expensive)."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and plane was quite empty"
Cons: "Take off got delayed (not in Alaska Airlines' control though), but all in all a very pleasant flight."
Pros: "First time to fly out of Love Field. Very good experience. On time flights."
Cons: "Didn’t like having to exit the plane in both San Diego and Spokane in the rain. No exit tunnel into the terminal. The in flight entertainment app was very wonky"
Cons: "Had trouble. Checking in for my flight and print my boarding ticket. Plane left early so we landed early but it took them so long to deplane that I still Ended up late."
Pros: "The spacious seats. Great customer service. Fast and smooth site."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked the flight for my boyfriend and I we were seated apart from each other in a different row."
Pros: "There was one crew member who was super nice and had a smile who kept going around asking if anyone would like refills or anything. Also, I like that there were charging ports... even if I didn’t use them. And there was plenty of leg room. Lastly, there was a flamboyant crew member who was really nice as well. I liked him a lot."
Cons: "There was this one older stewardess with short blonde hair who had an attitude the whole time. While she was trying to do drink orders a man had spilled his drink so he asked her for a napkin. She rolled her eyes and gave it to him. I was in an isle seat and I got hit in the back with the cart and all she said was “get out of my way I’m coming through” and it actually really hurt. I got bumped by her another three times. And by no other crew member was I hit on my side. Maybe she was just having a bad day..... or maybe she didn’t like her job.... but it definitely showed."
Pros: "We were 30 min early and took off on time."
Cons: "Slightly turbulent, but not bad. Alaska could have more non-dairy, gluten-free options in the menu, but their Mediterranean tapas box is pretty good."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "The only downside was the plane had no food and the announcement wasn’t made until we were already boarding (they didn’t know either - not their fault). I was expecting lunch since I was in first class, but the crew did as well as they could to provide us with snacks."
Pros: "Liked free WiFi!"
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."
Pros: "I love Alaska Airlines!! They are always so nice and very accommodating. I travel with my dog and they are great. The only airline I fly with my dog."
Cons: "The new planes on Alaska don’t have enough air flow coming out of the vent above the seat"
Cons: "The plane had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu because 2 of the 4 navigation systems were not operating correctly. We had 2 wait in Honolulu approx. 6hrs to catch a flight to Seattle. They gave me a $12 voucher for food but my dinner (only dinning in the terminal) cost me $20. Was forced to take an additional day of leave & had to make arrangements for my pets. Was only given (3) $600 vouchers for my 3 tickets."
Pros: "Once the seat assignment snafus were fixed, everything went fine."
Cons: "When we make the reservation, WE TELL YOU that we have two kids ages 3 and 5 travelling with us. WHY DOES YOUR SYSTEM BREAK US UP INTO 3+ GROUPS? It just ends up in more work for your gate agents to put us together as well as you can before the flight. This happened on the flight out and the flight back. Also, on the flight back the agent and crew had to bump people who had already established themselves in their assigned seats in order to fit us in in a sane way. Also, don't make us download a sketchy app to view in-flight entertainment. There are ways to deliver entertainment that don't require installation of software for just a flight. Not that it matters to us, because entertainment wasn't available on the flight to cabo."
Pros: "We upgraded to first class and it was amazing! The staff was very friendly and it was a perfect end to our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Got there safely and on time. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "I'm tired of being crammed into small and uncomfortable seats. It seems comfort is only for people who can afford it. Headrests were non-existent. I'm not extraordinarily tall but the seat stopped just above my neck and felt like a hard, sharp surface rather than something soft and padded. And, of course, there's not enough leg room. Especially once the person in front of you leans back. I don't mean to sound petty but it felt like the airline was more worried about maximizing profits at the expense of their guest's comfort."
Pros: "Great flight, crew and airplane. I love the brand new Boeing 737-900s that Alaska used on our route. Gorgeous new plane, great crew, and on time performance."
Pros: "Good size seats. Comfortable"
Pros: "Was upgraded to premium economy in order to accommodate a family that wanted to be seated together. Never been upgraded in my life. The seat was very comfortable and legroom excellent. I was exhausted from a long weekend and not feeling well but managed to sleep almost the entire four hours without being bothered. The flight attendants left me a snack in my seat pocket which was very much appreciated. Almost wish I hadn't slept so much of the flight so I could've witnessed other amenities and service of flight attendants."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "my original ticket had a tsa pre-check on it,when i tried to go thru security it would not read so i was told to go back to the counter to have it reprinted,mind you the lines to go thru screening were hundreds of people long that morning,so i did. the reprinted ticket did not have the tsa precheck on it but the ticketperson said it would be fine if i just showed the original. not what happened,i was sent all the way back to the end of general boarding and consequently nearly missed my flight. also there was zero air in the aircraft,it was stifling hot,smelly and miserable.and once again zero ackowledgement of any mvp gold statis of any kind. im starting to wonder whats the point anymore? you used to be alot more ......nice,i guess. and honestly how many very old wrinkled up senior citizens do you guys hire? i dont feel like most of the crew would really be able to handle any type of crisis if there was one. sorry ,i used to be very happy with you and now have been taking Delta more often."
Pros: "The flight, comfort, crew and entertainment was good on my flight"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make my connection so it was put on the first flight from PDX to SAN in the morning. The bag was scanned as arriving in San Diego, but it is lost and they think it's permanent. I had all my favorite things in my bag (it was a 10 day trip) and now I have to account for all of them, submit a claim and hope I'm reimbursed. It was a horrible end to an otherwise great vacation :("
Pros: "I can't say enough great things about this airline! This was my first time on Alaska and it definitely won't be my last. We had some weather issues come up as we were about to take off. The pilot kept us up today on info, the flight crew brought water & anything else people needed before take off. It was a short delay but you would have thought we were going to be there for hours because they were all so attentive. It was the smoothest flight (THERE WAS CRAZY WEATHER EVERYWHERE!!) but our pilots made sure we had the smoothest safest flight possible. I could go on forever! This airline went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure we were comfortable and had a great flight."
Cons: "I don't love paying to check luggage but these days unless you fly Southwest that's hard to avoid."
Pros: "Always on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accomodating. I also liked that I could change my seat even after I checked in so that I could have the most comfortable travel possible as someone traveling alone."
Cons: "Although it worked out ok. I thought that the boarding process was a little chaotic. I expected that we would line up according to our seat rows. But the boarding process still went ok."
Pros: "The service, the aircraft, and reasonable upgrades to first class"
Pros: "Good movie"
Cons: "The flight attendant taught he was funny but he was not to me. I eent to the restroom the the same flight attendant poke me to get him stuff from the back for him twice while he was seating at his seat. He gave 7 bottles of Jack Daniel to two young ladies without even asking for ID. They got drunk and starting pushing my friends seat several time while she was sleeping. Five hour flight and had to withstand this two ladies and the flight attendant seems yo not be helping by giving more alcohol and encouraging them. Will not reccomend american airline to my friends."
Pros: "We had a delay in landing. I was feeling sick to my stomach and after landing i used the restroom. When I got back to my seat to retrieve my things a man from the cleaning crew had one of the bags I had under my seat. I had $500 cash in my wallet that my husband gave me to deposit in the bank upon my arrival. When i asked the guy why he had my bag he said he was security and he thought I left. I felt that was odd because people were still exiting the plane. I grabbed my things and left. I didn't realize my money was taken until i got my rental car. That was the only time my bag was left unattended. I have never experienced this before and was so disappointed in my ingnorance. Since it was cash, my colleagues told me I would most likely be wasting my time."

The flight itself was good. Unfortunately I somehow found myself surrounded by 2 rows of families with small children. I had about all of the seat kicking and yelling that I could take for 3ish hours straight. Kinda wish the staff could have intervened somehow.

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "nice new plane, lots of room"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "crew was super friendly."
Cons: "Late 2 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better service, quicker boarding, more comfort and overall everything needs to improve"
Pros: "I felt safe add respected. They serve drinks and small snacks, no meals going to Hawaii, plan ahead."
Cons: "The airport at Phoenix had little seating. I was funny in the floor in case someone needed a seat. Otherwise, everything was good."
Pros: "Not a thing. Hands down worst airline I’ve ever flown with by a large margin. Would not recommend."
Cons: "Literally any and everything."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "extremely racist crew made the entire flight uncomfortable for everyone."
Cons: "American crew and gate agents are awesome!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "The AA crew at DFW are always rude"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "They looked for 18 people to get off the plane because of weight restrictions and the process was very disorganized"
Cons: "Organization"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Almost had 3 people in a row...of people not in Same household. Luckily flight wasn't full so people moved around and made my row less crowded"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "No and no"
Cons: "The plane could have been maintained. Instead I sat for three hours and was told the mechanics didn’t have the equipment to fix the plane"
Cons: "Several people got on the flight with no face mask on. The flight was completely packed, there was no distancing at all. The boarding process required me to walk past everyone as my chair was in the back and I was last group to board (unlike other airlines that have switched to back to front boarding to reduce people coming in contact with each other) As I walked down the PACKED plane mot people had masks on incorrectly (hanging off one ear, down around their chin, nose out, etc.) some people had no mask at all and the flight attendants did nothing. It seems like they were doing nothing to keep passengers safe from COVID-19 spread. Compared to Delta, American Airlines was terrifying to fly, I find not feel safe at all."
Cons: "they filled the plane. Every seat. Even though there has been covid-19 fears. No other company has started this"
Pros: "The crew was awesome and boarding was quick"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. They offered to valet my bag as I was boarding when they saw that it was cumbersome for me. The stewardess put me in a great seat when I was helpful to another passenger upon boarding. Also everyone seemed to be quite attentive and helpful during the covid situation, where people are a bit unnerved. I appreciated the effort to make everyone happy."
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough, but the rest of the flight was a dream. Definitely one of the better experiences Ive had in my 34 years of flying."
Pros: "Only masked picking up trash during pandemic - difficult to rate crew"
Cons: "Organized exit vs. usual crowded chaos of passengers in a hurry"
Cons: "Passengers need to DISTANCE 6' and keep their masks on. Which I realize is put of the hands of American. Appreciate the fresh white bag with a bottle of water and crackers. Thank you."
Cons: "On the first leg of my journey, there was a card explaining how to get inflight entertainment using the aainflight.com which worked great. However the Phoenix to Eugene leg used Boingospot but there was no card in the seat pocket explaining what needed to be put in your browser to access the entertainment portal. There were only two flight attendants on the flight and, aside from the drink service, no one ever came to the back of the plane so I could ask the question. I could have used the call button but I think that should be saved for emergencies. I think the information on how to access the inflight entertainment should be in every seat pocket"
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly"
Cons: "It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again."
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."
Pros: "The Flight crew was courteous and took care of us despite a series of extremely unfortunate circumstances."
Cons: "Due to a computer malfunction we were stuck on the tarmac for some time, when it was decided to find a new gate to return to. /The tech crew eventually gave the all clear and upon returning to the tarmac, the same computer malfunction occurred, and again we had to return to the gate. This was all totaled 2.5 hours on the Tarmac. Finally, some 5 hours late we departed Miami in a different plane. Upon arrival in Phoenix, the captain wearily announced that there was no ground crew awaiting us, so we had to wait some time on the tarmac there to disembark. Never before had I heard a airline captain encourage the passengers to write a letter of complaint to his employer."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew was nice and so was the American Airlines customer service office in Phoenix"
Cons: "I didn’t like the male and female check in people in Portland. They sat there and watched me for an hour not telling me I could not use cash to check in my luggage at the gate after they told me it was double the amount to check it in at the gate. The sight u use on the boarding pass u download on the phone is not clear. It says baggage fee +$25.00. I thought it was 25.00 till the women in Phoenix showed me the + sign. She said “it is confusing”. I did not buy the ticket because it was for an unexpected funeral of my sister. My other sister did so I didn’t see all the stuff from Travelocity. After telling me it would be $50.00 the check in male and female at the gate saw me sitting there for an hour and never told me I couldn’t pay cash. By the time it was boarding time if a nice woman did not offer to use her credit card and I have her the $50 cash I would have missed my flight. The manager at the gate in Portland even told me I would miss my flight. The two check in staff at the gate said “well we didn’t know you only had cash” and they weren’t even concerned that I was going to miss my flight. It would of been nice of them to tell me this when I sat there for an hour after they told me They we’re doubling the price. I would of had time to go back through security, only pay $25.00 and the other nice passenger would have not had to use her credit card. Very rude and poor service especially after a sad occasion of burying your sister!"
Pros: "The gate attendants and on-board crew were lovely. Pilots provided info which was great and made up some of the long delay."
Cons: "There is not enough space to list everything. I paid $800 for a normally $300 flight, then paid an extra $75 for the ability to board early so I could store my very small roller carry-on. The in-bound flight was 2 hours late and even though I could track that easily, and assumed our flight would also be two hours late, the AA website insisted the outbound flight would be on time. So like everyone else, I went to the airport. And it wasn't until just before the original departure time that the update was indicated. Really?? If I knew the flight was going to be two hours late,that means AA knew, and didn't care enough about their passengers to advise them. Then when we boarded, my bag was taken away for gate check because the flight did not allow roller bags. After I paid extra. How can AA not advise you when you book your flight that roller bags would not be allowed?? Talk about a money-grab. I unfortunately have a return ticket and am not wealthy enough to throw it away and book on another airline, but I would if I could. I will never fly AA again and I will share my story far and wide."
Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
Pros: "VEry good Cabin crew and the plane was reasonable new"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "Getting home 20 minutes earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "Pretzels are always stale"
Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing was together, missed connection. Had to buy a hotel in Phoenix"
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "I have nothing good to say about the flight to LA or the flight back to Chicago from LA."
Cons: "3 of the 4 flights were late, and the 4th was canceled. The canceled flight was due to weather, but AA's response was to connect those of us stranded with a 3rd party vendor - Travelliance - with the promise of a SUBSTANTIAL discount for a hotel (SINCE THE NEXT FLIGHT I WAS GIVEN WAS 17 HOURS LATER!) - and there was, effectively, NO DISCOUNT. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars with you over the years, but this was a bucker of water in the face. I'm sure I'll fly with you again, but any sort of good will I held for AA is gone."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "It was a flight, it got me from point A to point B, but everything in between could've been much better."
Cons: "When first boarding the plane, the person I was with tried to close the shade on the window, the with frame and the first 2 pieces of glass popped out. We notified the flight attendant and his response was "can you stick your arm out the window and wave? No... ok you're fine" then we were notified the bathrooms in the middle of the plane were out of order and we could only use the bathrooms at the rear of the plane. There was no WiFi, and the audio system for the on board movies wasn't working. The flight attendants were only giving out cups of beverages and not the full can, which isnt a big deal but still looks bad on the airline considering everywhere flight with American has handed out full cans of soda. The perception was American dropped the ball on the his plane, and just didn't care to do the necessary maintenance. For the his head priced paid for the his hehe see tickets I would've expected better from a reputable airline. Needless to say we were a little disappointed."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Despite one piece of carry on per passenger they run out of overhead space. The boarding process is unbelievably slow. Far too many with no apparent reason to pre-board are allowed to pre-board . Wanted to buy food were nearly out of any of the choices by row 34 so no food 5:36 minute flight ridiculously poor planning in my opinion. Very little leg room as configured."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "More seating space"
Pros: "They were effective at boarding"
Cons: "My display monitor didn’t work"
Cons: "Stuck me with a middle seat even though I fly frequently On United. In fact they gave me a special recognition on an earlier flight which was ridiculous as well because it was just a piece of paper that I had to go up to the podium to collect"
Pros: "I love having only 2 seats on each side."
Cons: "We boarded the same time as another flight. we used the same gate door, announcements were being made by both gate attendants and 1 mistakenly used our flight information. There were several passengers who were confused! Maybe it's an LAX issue?"
Cons: "Unfortunately flight was delayed for 2 hours on top of a 3h42m layover"
Cons: "Delayed."
Cons: "I never flew to Phoenix from Washington. I was held over at DCA for the night so I lost a full day of my vacation! Had to fly to Chicago and then to Phoenix. Was a total pain!!!"
Pros: "The nice crew"
Cons: "I wish if there was delay, we could do it at the gate not on the tarmac."
Cons: "This flight was horrible. I upgraded my seat and paid extra for a premium economy and it was still crowded. There was gum or candy stuck to the floor right were I was supposed to stash my carry on. I pointed it out to the flight attendant and his response was "so you can't put your bag there?" I asked him if he would ruin his bag and put it there and he said "well, you don't know me." What? I had to worry the whole flight about putting my foot on that gooey mess. What did I get for my extra money? Aggravation."
Pros: "Again expectation can get in the way. And of course the airline needs for flights to be as full as possible. In order to be profitable in the long run. We all want them to be able to stay in business"
Cons: "Same point - the point was full and I’ve already clarified that ."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The space between seats was very uncomfortable. I have never felt so crowded in a plane seat and would reconsider United in the future for that reason."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "I feel like airlines are becoming like used cars salesmen. High price ticket, then 25$ to check a bag, they give you direct tv as a preview and then make you pay to watch TV, pay for internet, want something other then pretzels, you have to pay for that too. Next up you will charge for our air conditioners to work which by the way they didn't. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life. Couldn't even bend down to get something under my seat because of the lack of space between rows. Also the air conditioner was extremely warm and the pressure of the air did not reach the seat. I was sticking to the chair because it was so warm. It just sucks that air travel has gone the way of every other industry that values quantity over quality."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We’re about to take off, had to go back to the gate due to poor inspections, then they had to move us to another plane and couldn’t be less effective. Gave everyone the wrong gate twice, it was ridiculous. Someone at United should hire a six sigma trainer to teach employees about efficiency."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "First the plane arrived late so we could not board at our scheduled time. Then when the plane arrived they said we could not used that plane. Then we had to wait 3 hours before we could get another plane. The new plane was also on the other end of the airport. This was a challenge while traveling with my mother who requires assistance."
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: "Gate agent not very helpful when my wife and I were assigned separate seats."
Pros: "The landing was great!"
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade on a seat and my passenger and I were told that we were entitled to free food and bottomless drinks with my payment, once on the plane I was told that payment was just for the seat. But she the attendant told me another passenger said the same thing. The only difference was the boarding agent told them 179.00 to change seats. She suggested I bring it up to United, which I will do."
Pros: "Flight was canceled, and the crew gave little information about next steps. When asked how to rebook, they said it would be emailed, except it never was."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Cons: "Couldn't get the tv to turn off, was making me feel nauseous. Seats don't acutally lean back to a comfortable level."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Good crew, pleasant flight"
Cons: "Plane boarded front to back...never makes sense to me why they aren't boarded back to front. Seats could be more comfortable since they only recline a couple inches"
Cons: "The HI Ag questionnaire: why? what value?"
Cons: "It was delayed as the incoming crew were late and I reached Phoenix almost at midnight which was inconvenient"
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?"
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The airport was horrible. Hard to get to the C concourse. "train" is TOO SMALL. It barely fits 10 in each car. International transfer of bags was Horrible, and very far apart from where you get the bags. Poorly planned or not at all planned. We barely had time to make the flight with 1 1/2 hours to transfer and would have missed our flight if it wasn't for a trolley driver who took us from security to the gate. There is no power at the seats. The plane is old and seats were very uncomfortable. Yeah, this was the worst flight."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Pros: "My flight was long but the crew was nice, beverage service was prompt . It was a good flight."
Cons: "By no fault of really anyone... the gentleman next to me was very tall and big. He was touching me throughout the trip while he was working on some papers. He looked uncomfortable."
Pros: "WAS SO PACKED IN IT WAS DIFFICULT TO LIKE ANYTHING. Seats should come with a safety warning ."
Cons: "ROCK HARD THIN BACK SEATS. I am average size and had no room- large people next to me spilled over into my seat. I had aisle seat and space under seat was size of average laptop leaving no room for feet. This would be ok for an hour- three and a half is ridiculous."
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: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "I like that we finally made it!! 130a.m."
Cons: "This by far is the worst flight I have ever been on! It's starts off delayed... Fine! They get us on board the plane and we sit and sit without much info being given to ppl on flight! Then we are told there are mechanical issues and it won't b long before we leave... Half hrs goes by and they tell us it will be longer so for us to exit the plane.... Which turned into a 45min wait to finally tell us that we were waiting now on a new pilot to fly in from where ever he was to finally take over our flight , which didn't leave ORD till 1230.... Which was supposed to had left ORD at 930.... We finally get to PHX at 130 a.m. When were supposed to originally land n PHX at 930 mountain time! After all of this confusion and just bad manangement of time... We didn't get any apologies any kinda of compensation for time lost... Just a have a gud day! I'm pissed will Never fly with United Airlines and will tell others to also not fly United!"
Pros: "Nothing. The gate agent didn't really know how kayak works when it comes to hacker flights.Told me to call customer service. Customer service does not give you the option to speak to representatives. The phone system just loops around with out giving any options for to speak to a person. After I was on the phone with an agent he told me my money would be refunded. I have been charged two flights and I'm still sitting at home."
Cons: "Kayak did not confirm my seat. Was not able to get a flight. Called customer service and they told me to rebook. My card was charged twice. The airplane had faulted hardware. Waited in line for 2 hours to get a different flight. All flights to Phoenix were full. Didn't make the standby list. Couldn't make the rebook flight. Worst day ever Now, No one can give me a refund. mind you I took a day off from work this was a last minute. The reason this trip was so important to me is because my grandma is in the ICU. I hardly ever complain about any customer service experience. Overall to get a hold of customer service is awful. Now I have to spend more money and I have to drive 12hours."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "Our luggage got left behind at Newark airport, this is a recurring issue. Trying to enjoy a vacation without your luggage is a bit of a challenge."
Pros: "In spite of late the flight reached before time."
Cons: "though I booked 8 months before yet I was given the last seat. I was rally sad."
Pros: "Seemed to be a newer plane, and there was in-seat entertainment at each seat. Mine didn't work, though."
Cons: "United has to have the smallest seats of any carrier. There couldn't have been more than three inches between my seat and the seat in front of me. The guy in the middle seat wasn't a large guy, yet he poured over into my space. It's insanely small."
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: "Everything was fine once I got on board the aircraft"
Cons: "Once again I had to see an agent to get a seat assignment on a 30 min layover. I though I got an upgraded seat but instead they gave me the wrong boarding pass. Same last name different first name so I had to wait till it got figured out and then be the last person to board so once again I couldn't find a place for my bag. Probably one of the worse flying experience I've had in a while"
Pros: "The jet was excellent. The boarding was easy and organized. The flight crew was very polite and professional. Everything went in a timely manner......."
Cons: "United overbooked by 5 passengers and that's not an acceptable practice. It's not fair to those who pay then get bumped off the flight..... This is terrible and needs to be stopped."
Cons: "Rows 20 to the back of the plane didn't get a beverage. Slow moving attendant. I was thirsty."
Pros: "The Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant I had to wait so long to be seated because no wheelchair was available then I had to sit in the rear of the plane I'm physically disabled I had no leg room and my knees were in pain the whole flight then after landing I had to wait 20 to 25 minutes to get off the plane I'm still recovering from that but keep the attendance they were the highlight of my experience"
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
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: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"
Pros: "Flight price."
Cons: "The service, accommodations, cleanliness, organization from the airline (multiple delays and two gate changes), comfort of seats, & entertainment options were all undesirable. I tend to only fly United when I have no other options. This experience was exactly what I expected from the airline. However, I was traveling with my mother this trip and wish I would've spent the money to fly a different airline."
