Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, I felt like a jerk if I reclined. Plane was roughly 30min late and then we had to sit and wait in line to take off for another 30 or so minutes. Not Alaska’s fault, more like SeaTac is just a mess right now."

Cons: "We arrived at the airport 5 minutes (NO more than that) after the one hour check in time to fly international going to Mexico. We were told we had to wait in line to speak with someone to print a boarding pass. There was an extremely long line with only two employees helping. We then asked if we could get our money back being that if someone has specially helped us with our case only being 5 minutes late to check in, but they declined. We had to book an entirely different flight and still have not gotten our money back. It was very stressful and unprofessional and had someone actually helped us, we would’ve arrived at our destination at the proper time we worked so hard for. I know my boyfriend and I weren’t the only people with his problem because two other families ran into the exact same avoidable problem. It felt very unprofessional. It ruined a familys vacation and caused the poor children to cry because of the lack of accommodation. We would love our money back but not sure you guys will even do so. Very disappointing."

An no compensation for it but sorry.... do u a humus pack for 8 bucks.... then one second later when my wife decides she wants it... they say they just gave away the last one... it was redic.

Cons: "The diy watch movies on my own device wouldn't load. More frequent trash pick up."
Pros: "Nothing stood out as excellent except that we got there on time."
Cons: "I have usually flown with Virgin America. Uncomfortable seats both along your spine and on your bottom. After boarding the plane, it was very stuffy...no air from the vent. After take off, very little air thru the opened vent. No built in screen as compared to Virgin for movies, music, and a flight map....it's about $10 to rent a tablet to watch things with Alaska. Just before landing they played a commercial advertising their credit card....Oh no, I don't want to listen to commercials on the flight. That will probably cause me to book with another carrier in the future. I HATE COMMERCIALS."
Cons: "EXCELLENT cabin crew !!!"
Pros: "We left a little late but arrived early, great job Alaska!"
Pros: "Love your direct flight to Santa Barbara.wish you had more than 1 daily."

Pros: "Out stewardess was amazing!!"
Pros: "I liked Santa Ana airport..."
Cons: "Didn't like being charged $25 for check-in luggage. My experience in traveling this the first time I've been charged. I travel 3-4 times annually-"
Pros: "Everything and how they treated you was great."

The flt was good and quick, but we had to wait 10 hrs for our 1 hr flight. We chose our flight in May so we could make the connection in Chicago quickly!!! Well that did not work out!!! When profits come before peoples plans made 6 months previous, and the companies don’t care, or give refunds for poor treatments,———I’m OUT!!!!!!

Boarding was fast and efficient. I was happy that things were on time, as this leg of my journey is frequently delayed because of the weather.

Pros: "The pilot kept us well informed after boarding of delays, etc."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic with no concern for social distancing. Speaker system in gate area was so distorted it was very difficult to understand the gate attendants announcements. Cabin attendant acted as if he were bored and would rather be home in bed; he gave no acknowledgement or greeting to passengers upon boarding."
Cons: "I didn’t wanted to check my carry on. But the man at the gate decided that I had to check the carry on, and took it from my hand without question. When I went boardered the airplane there was a lot of spaces in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."
Pros: "Good range of entertainment, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Some dinner choices had become unavailable by the time I ordered."
Cons: "Late boarding, WiFi didn’t work. Small seats. Why do I continue to fly you guys?"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and very cramped seating"

Cons: "They need more space and better food"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"
Pros: "Ease of bording"
Pros: "It’s economy so I didn’t expect much but there seemed to be more room than other flights from different carriers I’ve traveled with in the past."
Cons: "Wasn’t impressed that I was charged for premium seating when my original flight was canceled three times in two days. I understand they can’t control the weather but my vacation was cut from seven days to 5 days."
Cons: "Your seats are small and you never turn the fasten seatbelt light off"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The boarding process, the time of departure, the food, and but for an aborted landing we would’ve been on time. As it was we were only 15 minutes delayed"
Pros: "Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service."
Cons: "Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control"

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "Good food service and friendly crew. No waits in line for bathrooms."
Cons: "That my bag was overweight and I would have to get out of line and go to another section of the airport to rearrange my luggage, which would make it too time consuming. Had no choice but had to pay the steep charge!"
Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."
Pros: "Friendly staff great pilots we got up and down safely...."
Cons: "No time to grab lunch all I had was pretzels do you"
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Pros: "It was a very good fight"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the gate kept on changed 3-4 times and that it was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable!"
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Entertainment!"
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "No food offered on 1st leg, but it was on the menu card."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food, beverages, service"
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Pros: "AA canceled my flight to sell to others for more money."
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Pros: "comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ride flight attendants"

More food

Pros: "Drinks and snacks were fine.. Entertainment OK"
Cons: "Flight was 40 mins late. Plane was older than Noah's Ark."
Cons: "More time was spent by cabin attendees selling food and drink items to one row than the rest of the passengers, making us wait for complementary water or other drinks . Really? There should be equal service for all passengers. Makes me wonder if there are incentives for the sale of extra items"
Pros: "Once we got going, it was a decent flight. Weather conditions made for a bit of a rocky landing on the first leg."
Cons: "Lack of information for delays. Boarding was slow due to unknown issue. We sat at the gate for a while without knowing why (they finally told us 5 minutes before pushoff), then we dawdled for another hour taxing and waiting for the runway, with no explanation until near the end."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and professional."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
Pros: "I enjoyed purchasing a full fare first class ticket for my vacation"
Cons: "I didn’t like being bumped off my flight and being placed on a later flight in coach section. No refund for lesser service."
Pros: "Flight attendant decided this was a water-only flight. No particular reason, just lazy."
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."
Pros: "Stewardess was pleasant. Left on time."
Cons: "The crew was the worst ever!!! Very rude ladies who spent more time on their phones then serving the customers. They sucked"
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "Every time I fly to Denver, we land in one terminal and your connection is in another terminal that requires a train ride to get there. ,ayovers are short — generally barely an hour. If the flight is late you stand a very good chance of missing your connection, as I’m betting happened to over half the passengers on this flight. I was the lucky exception — this aircraft was actually the connecting flight too. Why can’t all United connections be in the same terminal? It makes no sense."
Pros: "Nice crew and smooth travels. Good snacks and coffee."
Cons: "No drop down or seat screens."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No internet available without paying and no charging station available in flight."
Pros: "We will never fly united... NEVER EVER AGAIN"
Cons: "United airlines employee Mearle at the check in counter was extremely disrespectful, Rude, and arrogant towards everyone in line at the counter Trying to check in. Many customers including us waitted in the check in line for 35 minutes or more while Mearle proceeded to chat on her cell phone (personal call), and taking a break leaning the check in counter while everyone waited on her so she could assist with check in. Finally the passengers in front of us voice their concern to mearle stating that everyone is going to miss theirs flights if she didn't assist us all right away. Mearle responded by snapping back by saying "it's not my fault that united keep us understaffed and pay us enough to care " then laughed and walked away again. At this point we realized that if we did not get immediate assistance, that we would surly miss our flight. I walked in front of the line on behalf of everyone standing in line and reiterated to Mearle in a firm tone that she insisting check in the remaining 12 passengers immediately. Mearle snapped back telling me to "worry about my own self and don't tell me how to do my own job". Feeling very stressed out And worried about missing my flight went and stood back in line again. A few moments later I over heard Mearle tell the passengers ahead of us " you're too late. You've missed your flight" these passengers became very upset with Mearle telling her that she's the reason they missed the flight and Mearle laughed and said out loud to everyone else in line.. "you all missed your flight. You all should be more responsible next time and get here earlier" and then Mearle walked away never to be see again. Many of us missed our flight which caused many of us to also miss our connecting flights. We immediately called the 800 number and filed a complaint. Then we were forced to drive three hours in traffic to LAX where we caught a later flight and barely made it to our destination in time for our work event. We swore that because of Mearle and her disgusting behavior that we will never ever fly united again (and I fly a lot for my job) and since that horrible experience with Mearle two months ago, I've flown on four trips spending over $2300 dollars and every flight has been booked through American Airlines. Do to Mearle's bad attitude, disrespectful personality, and poor representation of united we will never do business with united again. We suggest united airlines remove Mearle from Having any contact with the general public as we are sure that Mearle is loosing customers for united at a very rapid pace."
Cons: "Very tight quarters ..."
Cons: "I could not hear the flight attendant's announcements."
Cons: "A 1 hr Flight was delayed 2 Hours! Missed a special event because of it. Will never fly United again!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and attendant very unhelpful"
Pros: "My flight was delayed multiple and had to get a taxi to LAX which we even missed that flight because the gate attendants waited so late to make a decision. We are still traveling as we speak and are looking to arrive in Raleigh after 3pm. Which is 8 hours later than our orginal flight."
Pros: "Getting off the hot tin can!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because the AC was not working right. It never really cooled down much during the flight. They need to get their act together"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Missed both my connections"
Pros: "economy is so cramped! It really should not be legal. Any flight at 5:30 AM should give people more than a cookie. All airport food shops are closed at that hour."
Cons: "Why is every connecting flight in Denver located in a different terminal and at the farthest gate? It's always a sprint to make the flight. I got singled out for a complete pat down. I was wearing light summer clothing. I'm 65 years old. It makes no sense. Those machines need recalibrsting."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Everything went very well"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "United canceled my flightl"
Cons: "United canceled my flightl"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long taxi to terminal at LAX"
Cons: "A small bag of small pretzel mix was tasty, but there used to be more."
Pros: "Quick and friendly service. No lines through TSA"
Pros: "No big incident, was offered a small bag of pretzels, complimentary."
Cons: "Seats have uncomfortably small spacing."
Pros: "Always a good fight, very short."
Pros: "Plane was 1/2 full; almost all tourists. Clean and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Snacks are really weak - and I paid for them!"
Pros: "Same exact as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"
Pros: "I loved how easy it was to book the flight."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight within 24hrs and received no refund because I booked through priceline. However, there was no restriction or clause listed on the ticket stating that I had to cancel through priceline also. It really should not matter who I cancelled through, if I canceled within 24hrs the refund should be given. Also, the debits from my account said United as well as priceline taking me to United's web page to make the purchase. So of course one would think cancelling through United's site is appropriate. I'm very disappointed in United and will consider all other options (Airlines) before booking with them again. PS - United customer gave me the run around for 3 days knowing that it was their policy and they were the company who's keeping my money. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "We were very comfortable except for the fact that our flight was delayed so that we were on the plane longer than necessary since we boarded and then the pilot was informed of the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the plane an extra 40 minutes. ( this did not delay our trip as we made our connecting flight)"
Pros: "First of all, I was excited to get to Puerto Vallarta! Unfortunately, we had a delay due to a child who got sick as the plane was backing from the gate. The crew was fantastic and had paramedics load the plane to check on toddler. The family deboarded and United crew cleaned the throw up. The pilots kept the passengers informed and we proceeded with the flight. The flight attendants were fantastic, particularly the brunette attendant who remembered me from a previous flight. Best flight attendant ever!! Thank you United!!!"
Pros: "I arrived at the aurport 1 hr 20 mins before flight - plenty if time to check in and make it to gate at a small airport ad Newark is. Wanted to check in online - the United System did not allow me to. Had to wait in line - long line due to holidays. I raised my hand and asked for assistance given the impending 1 hr cut off time for check in. Was told I should go to the special assustance line. Well, guess what - that line which was meant to be express service for fliers with special situations was moving with the speed of a tortoise - slower than the general line. Only 2 flight assistants were servicing, both incredibly slow. When asked politely that I need special assistance as I was approaching the 1 hr cut iff fir checkin, the United lady yelled at me instead of speeding up her slow motion. Bottom line, I missed my flight on a tiny airport dedpite arriving 1 hr 20 mins before flight. Had to wait 14 hrs overnight at the airport to catch the next flight because the United Airlines personnel are lazy, slow, inefficient, rude and no customer oriented. Terrible service."
Cons: "The flight I purchased was over booked. I had to leave a friend behind and travel on my own. I will never use United Airlines again."
Pros: "Adequate work-around by an alert and helpful United Customer Service rep in LAX."
Cons: "We had to take this flight rather than a direct from LAX to SBA after missing our scheduled flight sitting on the tarmac for an HOUR waiting for our terminal to be vacated by an international flight with "mechanical problems." Four extra hours in transit!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Lack of meal service"
Cons: "My flight from Santa Barbara to SFO was delayed, causing me to miss my connection. After sitting in the Santa Barbara airport until 11pm, I was rebooked and sent home."
Pros: "It was a great experience overall"
Cons: "The most unpleasant crew we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their customer treatment training."
Cons: "."
Cons: "Had to reschedule my flight due to delay. The non English speaking ua agent put me on stand by at another airport without me knowing it"
Pros: "Flight once in the air went well. Service was fine/uneventful"
Cons: "Many delays and flight changes. Swap from 1 overlay of an hour to 3 overlays of about 5 hours. Really makes planning trip post flight travel a pain"
