Airline reviews

Pros: "Nothing because there was no social distancing. I did not think that airlines were allowed to completely fill flights and I had no choice once I was boarded."
Cons: "Please observe social distancing and DO NOT book completely full flights where seats can’t be left open. Irresponsible and stupid."

Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"

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."

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: "Xx"

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

Pros: "Seating had a good amount of room and was comfortable."
Cons: "Bathroom was messy and a little disgusting."

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: "Rude staff, not willing to help"

Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."

Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."

Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"

Pros: "Great no complaints"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"

Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."

Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."

Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."

Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"

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: "No issues boarding and arrived at the destination a little bit early so I easily made my connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight itself was a little rough at times but what can be done about that?"

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: "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: "Relatively uncorwdedcat that time so I got row to myself. Good amount of legroom"

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: "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: "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: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Pros: "Friendly service and staff."

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: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "This airline was extremely disrespectful and treated us like animals after cancelling our flight ..."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours. When we landed we sat on the runway for another two hours due to no empty gates because American didn't move their planes from the flights that were cancelled."

"An airplane that still has screens (which I appreciated!) but every time there was a PA announcement the sound would cut out for a good 10 minutes AFTER the announcement was over. Eventually I stopped trying to watch a movie because I was missing so much. Also, I really wish they wouldn't rush to get everyone on a plane when the crew is delayed and doesn't get onboard until 5 minutes before they're scheduled to leave. You know that then we're going to sit there for 30 minutes waiting for them to get ready and find us a new takeoff slot, so why didn't you just delay the boarding too? United's Basic Economy is also a scam, but at least I got a window seat. And we all know there are worse options (Spirit)."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Nothing. Experience was awesome"

Cons: "Excellent experience"

Pros: "The pilot was very informative and the crew was well organized"
Cons: "All as great"

Pros: "Crew was very good and accodating"

Cons: "With the exception of delays due to thunderstorms all was excellent."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Crew did great job filling a full flight quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "Seats are small and I’m 6’ 190 lbs"

Pros: "Staff and entertainment"
Cons: "Comfort, seats felt tight"

Pros: "Get my bags to the airport on time!"
Cons: "Get my bags to baggage claim when I land. There was a 6 hour break between my first flight and arrival at destination. Seriously?"

Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed and the entertainment was expensive. No charging outlet"

Pros: "I liked the United entertainment movies option. Full can of soda for free."
Cons: "Only pretzels. Would prefer additional options - on other flights they offer peanuts or cookie. When you have to use your own device to watch the entertainment, you use battery. If battery dies before movie ends, too bad. In today’s cell phone world it would be nice to at least have USB charging available- cheaper than inflight screens!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."

Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Not a lot of foot room"

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."

Cons: "I was told to go to gate 10, found out my flight was moved to 15 and missed flight sit at airport over"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Made up time in air. Decent snacks. Professional although not seemingly happy flight attendants."
Cons: "Delayed take off. Sat on tarmac. The outgoing flight had free entertainment via the united app but the return flight required payment for the same fare class and same duration. Ran out of snacks for purchase."

Pros: "Finally getting off the ground"
Cons: "Lack of information about the long delay; poor accommodations for the unplanned overnight stay."

Pros: "It's only an hour flight"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with no explanation or communication given for over an hour. Uncommunicative crew."

Pros: "Nothing about this airline."
Cons: "The crew at the gate was really rude. Zero customer service. She raised her voice at us and another customer who was charged $50 for our carry on. Not only was the flight delayed for over 2 hours. We were not informed that we could not bring a carry on even when we were at the main entrance with an agent for over 30 mins when you entered the airport. All their staff needs new training everyone kept on giving us a different answer. We asked because of this delayed will our room be comp due to the fact we will be missing our connected flight. On the phone the agent said yes. When we got to the airport that agent said no. When we got on the plane that agent said no. When we landed in Denver that agent comp our room. We ended up booking a room making sure we had a place to stay at night. It created more work for us because we were trying to cancel our room took even more time. Definitely wanted to give United the benefit of the doubt that they were at least at the level of American Airlines. The last time we flew United it was delayed for 8 hours they ended up canceling the flight. When we called they said it was the weather and we told that agent it's mechanical issue because we are watching someone remove the engine. We will stick to American Airlines. Free entertainment."

Pros: "Super friendly staff, everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was accommodating. The flight was comfortable. The plane departed on time. The gate personnel were very helpful. When I got off the plane and saw that I did not have a gate assignment, one of the crew pulled out their phone, opened an app, and based on my flight number, told me what my gate was and where to go for the tram. Thank you!"

Cons: "As a frequent flyer, I'm used to slight delays, waiting around, and standard customer service across airlines. It's safe to say that this was one of the worst flying experiences that I've ever had....6 different 30 minute delays and horrible customer service."

Pros: "The crew in Orange County was as helpful and proactive as could be."
Cons: "When we landed in San Francisco, I literally ran from one terminal to the other and they closed the door knowing I had landed. They were not apologizing for the fact that I could practically touch the plane but would have to wait four hours for the next one. That was a bummers"

Pros: "Met newest grandson"
Cons: "Missing flight due to gate change."

Pros: "safe"
Cons: "They where late coming for about 30 minutes and going back it was late 3 hours. very frustrating for picks."

Pros: "We made up late departure and arrival was close to ontime."
Cons: "Tight seating and luggage overhead bin storage too small. Our bins were already full with others bags when we boarded. Wonder why the bins above your assigned seat would be used by other passengers."

Cons: "The flight was late, the seats have less leg room and the passengers were crabby"

Pros: "Surprised! My experience with United has typically been very poor. It's usually my last choice when choosing an airline. This is the first time I can honestly say I had a good experience on United. Plane was new, seats were very comfortable ans spacious (very rare), attendants were all under 70 years old and service was spot on. Huge change from the United I know."
Cons: "You have to pay for satellite TV, usually free on other major carriers."

Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival"
Cons: "The A319 that was used appeared quite tired. Strange irregular banging noises were heard and felt under the wing root area as jet taxied out of Santa Ana. After landing, a very high pitch squeal started and lasted 5 minutes after engine shut-down. Finally, there was a very loud "sawing noise" coming from under the aircraft after parking in the terminal that others commented about the loud sawing noise. Canadair aircraft was much nicer and quieter that was used from SFO to Santa Ana."

Pros: "Being a red eye, they were too busy congregating among themselves and chatting away.. when requested for a beverage, the service was as though they were doing a big favor and the guests on-board were disturbing them..!!"

Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."

Pros: "I love how polite and efficient your employees are. I was immediately offered assistance with baggage check in and with using the kiosk. You should be very proud of these staff for they represent United well. I thoroughly enjoyed every member I met.Thank you for a 100% wonderful experience."

Pros: "Did not have the entertainment app but didn't know I needed to download it before the flight."
Cons: "Crew was not prepared for boarding."

Pros: "The united club"
Cons: "Allergy friendly snacks would be nice. Offering one free movie would be great and placing people who can't move well in seats that don't block others would be wonderful. The should be given a nicer seat with less people stuck inside"

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

Pros: "-Fast check-in -Crew was friendly -Comfortable seat -Appreciate the beverage -Love the new safety videos"

Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."

Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."

Pros: "The snack boxes are very good. The on flight crew were excellent. The gate crew - not so much."
Cons: "Row 32- seats don't recline. I requested to be sat with my children at booking - we were in different rows 3 of the 4 legs. My TV wouldn't accept cc payment."

Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."

Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."

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

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

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

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."
