Pros: "Fllight landed early and departed a few minutes early too - YAY!"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"

Pros: "Time and price and oc airport the best"

Pros: "Early areival"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were really worn. Not very comfortable at all."

Pros: "Faster than planned air time"
Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "charging outlets"

Pros: "Flight crew was very nice and beautiful"
Cons: "Nothing at all. Great flight. Maybe have upgraded seats for pay."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Their services m"
Cons: "There was no tv and it was a bit chilly in the flight"

Cons: "EXCELLENT cabin crew !!!"

Pros: "First class upgrade"

Pros: "When everything was said and done, and most other people on the flight were given free passage to SFO by Airporter bus and then put onto a flight into LAX and then arrange transportation to Orange County (which I had every reason to think was a nightmare for those trying to get to Orange County from LAX due to unclaimed packages (security uproar) and major traffic around LAX and would not work for my disabled family to drive 1.5 hours to pick me up) I paid for a bus to SFO myself and booked a flight from there to Santa Ana (John Wayne) on Southwest. I eventually arrived there around 730 PM. Alaska refunded my flight southbound and still offered me $400 credit which was nice of them. That being said, the propeller planes are really noisy so don't expect a comfortable experience. But its worth it for the convenience to travel from Santa Rosa, CA (Sonoma County Airport) to Santa Ana (John Wayne Airport) provided they don't cancel your flight. Alaska will be adding more flights on this same route by summer and they deserve some credit for that, but at the end of the day, it was my own resourcefulness that saved the day, and got me to my family December 22nd. I would have had to wait until December 24th through Alaska Airlines for the same flight, and that is when my family celebrates Christmas, so that was NOT a very appealing option."

Pros: "Great service and friendly staff"

Pros: "The staff in the airport as well as on the plane were friendly and provided prompt service. Flight was quick with arrival estimates being on the over rather the under, nice little surprise."

Pros: "Excellent staff, pilot was very good with information us about sites"

Cons: "I would have liked a video screen with movie options for a 2 1/2 hour flight, but I recognize I don't understand all of the considerations around that."

Pros: "I liked that you could buy snacks on the flight. Really like the Alaska magazine lots of interesting articles. Wish i had taken a copy witth me..."
Cons: "They started boarding really early... 50 minutes before wheels up. I just happened to be near the gate. So I got on when my group was called... barely. They had the plane loaded and buttoned up by 8pm!!!! For an 8:20pm departure...yikes. what happens if you weren't near gate??? Miss flight?"

Pros: "Friendly staff! Prompt service."
Cons: "No free drinks"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "n/A"

Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."

Pros: "Organized boarding and arrived early."
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "got there"
Cons: "the brat in front of me screaming"

Pros: "Great on time schedule"
Cons: "I don't agree with not letting someone book there seat at time of purchase. A numbers of flights I paid 3-4'weeks early but had to wait and check and recheck mulitple times for when seat selection became available. Very nerve racking. Otherwise very good flight."

Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight, fee pretzels, all wins for me."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly crammed, I felt claustrophobic between the window and my neighbor."

Pros: "I liked how relatively quick the boarding process was. The flight was short and sweet."
Cons: "Not at the fault of the airline but I was seated in front of a family with two small children. They were loud and kicked my seat on several occasions. Very unpleasant. But no major complaints about the crew."

Pros: "We were able to leave a little early, the flight was fast, and we arrived about 30 mins ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Nothing too much money for a two hour flight with no amenities. Get rid of the awful snack pack."
Cons: "We checked our bags at the request of airport staff to help with overhead storage and by the time we boarded there was no overhead space and we had to place backpacks under seat leaving no leg space because of silver box under the middle seat."

Cons: "We didn't really have social distancing on board but it was as good as could. be expected"

Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"

Pros: "Assertive"
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."

Pros: "Gogo in flight entertainment and WiFi worked well"
Cons: "Collect the trash sooner. Hot food options."

Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"

Cons: "Was refused to use the 1st clas restrooms but 10 minutes layer the flight attendant allowed an older gentleman and a lady to use them. I was in 10A with my service dog"

Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"

Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"

Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

Pros: "Seating lacked the ability to recline in any way. There were no snacks or drinks whatsoever"
Cons: "The seats could recline. On a top tier airline I expect comfortable seating that declines for the price"

Pros: "Decent food. Great entertainment options"
Cons: "JFK Boarding"

Pros: "There was an agent named Christopher working at the Delta terminal in San Diego, and he was tremendous to work with."

Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."

Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"

Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."

Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"

Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"

Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"

Pros: "Like you let a rookie land the plane. Rest of the flight was great. But the landing was sketchy af"

Pros: "On time! Easy boarding!"
Cons: "They had problems with both the wifi and the entertainment system. Super friendly crew further."

Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."

Pros: "Nothing..there was literally nothing that I liked about this flight. The gate clerks were helpful."
Cons: "Sooooo many things......there was NO PILOT!!!! Delta knew this 30 minutes before my flight landed and yet Delta did not post or communicate that the flight was going to be delayed and then ultimately cancelled because there was NO PILOT. Of course when they scheduled the flight for the following day not only did they not have a full crew, they had NO PLANE. On the whole, it was pretty terrible."

Pros: "I was able to watch TV on my way to my destination."
Cons: "I upgraded for the cabin Round trip and when I flew back from my destination I didn't have the same good experience. I did not have the TV flying back. The plane was too rocky one minute going smooth then out of no where it into high speed. The plane was shaky."

Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hrs. The next flight to Atl left and reached earlier"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Everything went as I had expected it to, and as I hoped it would. Delta was super on both legs of the journey to Philadelphia."

Pros: "Pilot flew flawless crew kind and helpful it was a full flight and impressed helpful passengers to get on board was."
Cons: "Disappointed airplane not equipped with free movies. I bought ear buds on return flight for that purpose"

Pros: "Very professional and courteous"

Pros: "Loved that they had access to connecting info on board"

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."

Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "My seat wouldn't recline at all. I think it was broken. Not the end of the world, but a bit of a bummer as it was an overnight flight."

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Pros: "Small cubicles are pretty comfortable but a little cramped . No they are upgrading their business class to larger "suites" and that will be good . The food is good but nothing to write home about . Your payment system works well but as usual there is a somewhat limited library."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"

Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"

Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Cons: "We were delayed to redo maintenance paperwork from a previous repair. This should not hold up flights and cause the plan to loose its slot for takeoff"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."

Pros: "I got rerouted to make it to destination on time (almost)"
Cons: "I received a notification my original flight was delayed and the option proposed was so tight I could not even make it to the airport even if I was 20 minutes away. I would have loved to see all my options right after this text alert."

Pros: "Fast boarding and short time from gate to take off."
Cons: "Stinky rest room like it was blocked."

Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."

Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"

Cons: "More legroom"

Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."

Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."

Cons: "I am glad to be home after 4 1/2 hours of delays"

Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."

Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"

Cons: "Xx"

Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."

Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"

Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."

Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"

Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"

Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."

Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."

Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"

Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Smooth flight, barely late."
Cons: "Broken sink, horribly uncomfortable, cramped seats."

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Walking out in rain to board the plane"

Pros: "Pretty efficient."

Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."

Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."

Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."

Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"

Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."

Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."

Cons: "I was trying to check two bags, and I get three free bags. My one bag was my wife's bike in a case and it as 60 pounds and the other was a suitcase that was only 20. They made us take stuff out of the bike case and move it to the suitcase to get it below 50 pounds. Ridiculously nitpicky. It's the same overall weight..."

Pros: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."

Pros: "Due to my missed connection, American booked me on the earliest flight to Dayton the next morning via United."
Cons: "The United flight's aircraft was cannibalized for another flight as our plane was only slightly more than 1/2 full. Our later aircraft were cannibalized twice more, until we finally got a spare aircraft after a two hour delay."

Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."

Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"

Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"

Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"

Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."

Pros: "Plane on time."
Cons: "Small commuter jet. Very cramped."

Pros: "Nothing - never happened."
Cons: "The flight was changed many times."

Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."

Pros: "that connecting flight was close to arrival gate"
Cons: "flight AA5280 was canceled. Your confirmation number is MRCITQ. Operated by PSA Airlines AA5280 was originally scheduled to leave from O'Hare International (ORD) to Dayton (DAY) on Tue Aug 16 2016 at 9:45 pm."

Pros: "I was automatically rebooked into the next flight."
Cons: "The customer assistance rep at PHL had a terrible attitude. She was very short in her responses, and seemed annoyed at the fact I needed help, getting my new ticket indicating I had a lap infant, as it was in my reservation. Ultimately, I had to report I had an infant with me at the flight gate, even though this was my second flight with AA that day."

Cons: "It was terrible. A missing flight attendant caused an extra delay in departure. Missed connecting flight. American Airlines was not prepared to assist all the stranded travelers. Had to spend night in the airport until I could get on a flight the next day. This was not what I paid for."

Pros: "COMFORTABLE SEATS EVEN FIR A BIG GUY LIKE ME, FRIENDLY STAFF."
Cons: "LAST RED EYE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"

Cons: "Connecting flight between LAX-PHX and PHX-STL cut it pretty close. I had to run across the airport at PHX which is a little hard considering how big the airport is."

Cons: "I was very uncomfortable. My seat would not recline at all & I was seated to a very large man that"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "I liked American better than the other airlines used during my trip. Those were United n Southwest"

Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"

Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"

Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."

Pros: "My flight was delayed where I would have missed my connection, customer service rebooked on another flight which got me to my final destination early. The upgrades and consistent service is handled very well."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "There's not enough room. The guy beside me is hanging over his seat and I'm trying to sleep and our bodies are touching because he's so big."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."

Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"

Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"

Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."

Pros: "Both flights arrived early."

Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"

Pros: "Nothing, pilot was polite but also very frustrated"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. After 6 hour delay. Second flight arrived to Dayton and sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Sweltering heat, idiots working the gate, full plane. United owes these poor folks a lot. My 80 year old mother will never fly again due to this trip"

Cons: "Major delays at Chicago O Hare, little to no communication. Passengers were not told what was going on, or the reasoning for our plane being so late. 3 hour delay boarding, and also sat on runway for another 1.5 hours before takeoff. Once landed in Dayton, could not pull up to a gate for another 45 minutes. So much wasted time. I purposely picked an early flight so I could have more time with my family. Had to cancel my family dinner plans that night due to an extra 5 hours wasted."

Pros: "nice attendant"
Cons: "there was no entertainment and the seats were too tight."

Cons: "I spent 8 hours waiting for a connecting the scheduled time was less than one hour"

Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"

Cons: "They delayed the flight because they had no flight attendant. They delayed it every 15 minutes from 450 to 715 and then just stopped updating us at all. We all waited with no food or drink or any news. At 815 they cancelled it and sent the whole plane to customer service to wait in line. Most of us had to stay in Wash and leave the next day. They offered us nothing except to rebook the flight. The boarding crew was laughing and joking the whole time with zero regard for our discomfort or ruining connecting flights! Never again."

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"

Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("

Pros: "Boarding was confusing"

Pros: "The plane was not full for most of the trip=more room. Flight was shirted than expected"
Cons: "Staff seemed stressed. It was hot! The temperature was lowered after many voiced discomfort. Entertainment very limited considering the length of the flight."

Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."

Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."

Cons: "The snacks where gross."

Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."

Pros: "There was not enough room for my legs."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Considering I got in 5 hours late to my destination... I hated the whole experience"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"

Pros: "The help of a guy called CID at Customer Service"
Cons: "1st flight cancelled due to maintenance; 2nd due to crew (no pilot). The feeling is that they cancelled due to few passengers. Been 9h hours in the airport with a 5 month pregnant wife was not fun (mainly for her). Totally disappointed with United. That never happened to me in life before. And I fly at least 2 X month..."

Pros: "She saw me boarding with two small kids and came right up with snacks and juice! Much appreciated. Also I really like that you do pre-boarding again for families with young ones. Thank you."
Cons: "Food. You said you have wifi but I was never able to connect. Don't understand."

Cons: "Plane was old and dirty ...."

Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."

Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"

Pros: "A few delays (as to be expected from chicago )"

Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."

Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."

Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."

Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"

Pros: "Thank you."

Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"

Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."

Pros: "Nothing. Pretty gross plane."
Cons: "Coffee spilled in my seat."

Pros: "You were on time and efficient"
Cons: "Overheard storage, no leg room"
