Airline reviews

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the leg room for a 5 ft 10 inch man was fine in the main cabin. Pre ordered food and that was good."
Cons: "If people understood how to get off the plane"

Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"

Cons: "No USB charger outlets in seats"

Pros: "Quick and simple flight. I appreciated the free beer to get me thru it"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable! Smallest prop plane ever. It rattled and bumped the whole way and seemed very old and busted. Not what I expect from Alaska"

Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean. Appreciated the care of the phone agent when we needed to make a change."
Cons: "Husbands upgraded seat 6C was terribly uncomfortable. My row and one other were completely skipped with food services I’m mean completely, no cracker no offer of food for purchase nothing. When I asked if there would be an opportunity to purchase food I was told that there would be three more carts....nope just nope. First time I ever have needed to purchase something to eat and it was complete unavailable. When the last cart came by I asked again and was treated rather bruskly of course I was just too “hangry” to care. First truly horrid trip I’ve ever experienced. This was not a full flight. Not sure what the heck was up but I’ve never been so glad to get off a flight."

Pros: "Very simple and easy trip. The flight attendants even found a postcard my friend had left at the gate earlier in the day and gave it to me on the flight."
Cons: "Airlines are so scared to fly in inclement weather. I knows it’s safer but if it’s raining and there’s no sign of lightning it’s probably safe to leave."

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"

Pros: "Was one of the best flights I’ve had. Service was really good and enjoyed the complimentary cocktails"

Pros: "Love Alaska. Good service"
Cons: "full flight, and Portland packed with commuters as usual"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "My flight was at 6:45 and so the first domestic flight out was much more crowded than I thought. People were cutting claiming they’re late. No staff other than at the entry. Voices were raised as one man refused to let two others to just cut and walk right past him."

Pros: "Everything else."

Cons: "We would have loved more of a meal during the flight."

Pros: "The seats and stowage were expected in comparison to a 737-800. Boarding time was fairly quick and organized."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was localized using a small portable microphone/speaker combo. Not great if you were sitting in another gate where seating was available. Food was pay as you go. Soft drinks and water were free. No in flight entertainment in the seat. They use GoGo Flight and rent tablets for 10.00 USD. The videos would skip and you will miss key elements of a plot. I was underwhelmed by this airline and will likely not take them again for a 5.5 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The plane was limited in space to move around. Overhead baggage compartment was broken. Should provide more movies to economy class! Vegan meal wasn't actually vegan (yogurt is not) and it was poor quality."

Pros: "The free wine! It was on time, employees at airport and on plane were very nice. Flight and seats comfy."
Cons: "Wish there were more direct flight to SF"

Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"

Pros: "The actual flight was fine. No issues to report."
Cons: "2 flights. 2 late take offs and lost luggage."

Cons: "Asked fort blanket. Told they were only available for First Class passengers"

Cons: "My flight back from Salt Lake City has a lot less friendly staff"

Pros: "Smooth flight lovely flight attendant"

Pros: "Found the crew to be friendly and relaxed. The plane was fairly new. Overall, it went fine as long as you understood it was going to be simple offerings."
Cons: "Apparent aggressiveness to get as many carry on bags paid for by the ground staff measuring with a measuring tape all bags. I've never seen anything like it. My bag was fine. Then, when they started to take fees you had to come back and pay. It wasn't done right then. The ground staff was minimally helpful. Flight amenities or not, pay for headset and having more than 2 TV shows and 2 movies cost you an up charge even on an overseas flight. One choice for dinner.- pasta so it was vegetarian. Breakfast was a sad roll, one small piece of cheese and ham, and fruit that was that questionable. Overnight flight, pillow no blanket in Economy. Seats hard and leg room was tight. Their Economy plus and business looked a much better way to go."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight that I booked is from Omaha to Guangzhou, but you guys gave me the ticket shows that there has one stop by Canada, and I don't have the ETA so that the stuffs wouldn't let me get in the flight and I can't make my trip on time! I don't think that is my bad because as a customer YOU( this APP) should be able to let me know I need to get the ETA to support me stop by Canada before I book the ticket from YOU GUYS, and I don't know that, so that I can't get in the flight which is make me feels really tough! And I know that it is not just happen to me but also it happen to other people, there has some people has the same problem as I do, so I don't think you guys should do that! DO NOT sales us the ticket that can't let us get in the flight! As a public APP. You guys should make the notes when you sale the ticket, say" there has a one stop by Canada, IF U don't have ETA, pls don't book it!" Let the people know so that we won't get any trouble OK?!?!"

Cons: "the lost my luggage"

Pros: "Fast abs friendly, knowledgeable staff."

Pros: "Alecarte and free wine."

Pros: "Fast service, very professional and great customer service! Overall, a very pleasant flying experience."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "$25 meal voucher. Helpful staff who made sure everyone made connecting flights or were rerouted"
Cons: "Repeated delays. 5+hrs in airport."

Pros: "I think you need to adjust the cabin pressure as my legs and feet swelled and they've never done that on another flight. I even hydrated and tried exercises prior and through the flight. Please look into - I really think there is something to investigate. Thank you."
Cons: "It took me 2 days to get the swelling to subside. Not something I've EVER had to think about let alone do. I'm wearing compression tights...dreading the flight home tomorrow."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and friendly"
Cons: "Payment for wifi"

Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"

Pros: "Alaska airlines was a super flight, great staff"

Cons: "Slow drink service"

Pros: "Flight was efficient from SBA to PDX but almost 2 hours late on return"
Cons: "Almost a 2 hour delay on return!"

Pros: "My flight attendants were sooooo friendly. Also really enjoy the complimentary glass of wine!"

Cons: "no music. no wi-fi. nothing to enhance the experience. check out jet blue."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."

Pros: "Love your direct flight to Santa Barbara.wish you had more than 1 daily."
Cons: "Long walk to terminal on return,glad it wasn't raining. I was in back . Crew was a little loud talking to each other on last stretch of flight. They kept opening and closing the overhead bins during the flight . I have no idea why ,but it was somewhat annoying."

Pros: "Everything was conducted professionally and calmly."
Cons: "The weather was bad, but the airline does not control that. ;)"

Pros: "We arrived half an hour early! Bags on time."

Pros: "Nice clean airplanes. Quick and timely flights."

Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome!"

Pros: "Crew is friendly and very efficient. The flight attendant came to tell me that I would be on the same plane for the continuing flight to Sacramento so not to worry about short connection. This was very considerate. Free wine. SMOOTH landing."
Cons: "The sound system is VERY loud to the point of being piercing. I was on four of your planes and this was consistent."

Pros: "The crew is genuinely friendly and helpful. It was a very short flight so there is not much to note. It was on time, and I caught my connection easily. I am very glad they serve the Redmond Oregon to Portland route."
Cons: "This does not apply."

Pros: "Check in easy, comfortable seating, friendly staff,on time flight."

Pros: "The crew was hysterical. There were clearly some regulars on this flight and the crew knew them. Made the "shuttle" fun."

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "How loud it was inside as was a smaller plane."

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: "This seats on this flight were very comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issue with a lens on one of the plane's exterior lights."

Pros: "Ease of bording"

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."

Pros: "Boarding lasted over an hour"
Cons: "I regret flying with American. They have consistent problems with every flight from seating to delayed flights"

Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"

Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."

Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."

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

Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."

Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."

Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"

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

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was awesome."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Missed this connection"

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"

Pros: "just Ok for everything."

Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."

Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."

Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"

Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"

Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Needed to return to gate to refuel after aborted takeoff attempt. Thi"

Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"

Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"

Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"

Cons: "Provide food would be better"

Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."

Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."

Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."

Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"

Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"

Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."

Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."

Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."

Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."

Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"

Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."

Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."

Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."

Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."

Pros: "Nice new interior"

Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."

Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."

Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."

Pros: "No big incident, was offered a small bag of pretzels, complimentary."
Cons: "Seats have uncomfortably small spacing."

Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"

Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."

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."

Pros: "Overall very good. Friendly staff and timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "More leg room (on first flight) and drinks with ice!"

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: "On time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. United made no apologies."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "No comfort. Should have picked my seat."

Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"

Pros: "Nothing, due to my flights getting delayed thanks to United, I missed my flight to south bend and then told them to get my luggage because I was getting picked up by n Chicago. United then sent my luggage to south bend after I spoke with 3 United customer care agents and luggage agents and I wanted almost 2 hrs for my luggage. I paid 1200 for my ticket to get to my grandpas funeral and everything went wrong that possibly could"
Cons: "Anything"

Pros: "No delays. Was on time/early."
Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Good service"

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."

Pros: "Flight was early!"

Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."

Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"

Pros: "On time, clean newer plane"
Cons: "No entertainment options, were promised free wifi to watch superbowl at the gate only to be told later there were ZERO options for entertainment, no tv, movie or wifi let alone free."

Pros: "That's it was fast and organized"

Pros: "Kayak e mails on gate changes and such"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I liked the coffee."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least 45 minutes, making me miss my connecting flight. After that I had to wait 7 hours for the next available flight. Also the connecting flight was all the way on the other side of the airport. No one at the airport would help with directions to the next boarding area."

Pros: "Took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. I didn't have any food."
Cons: "I was very cramped. The 2 guys beside me were squished. The plane was 3 seats on both sides."

Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants & the pilots kept us posted on everything which made me feel extra comfortable!"

Pros: "i didnot like any thing"
Cons: "they cancle the flight time so meny and i got other flight cancled"

Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."

Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"

Pros: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."

Cons: "My fiancee and I bought tickets months ago from SB to Seattle (by way of SF) with seats next to each other. The flight was cancelled the day-of. She was automatically rebooked. I was not. I called in and could not get a seat on the flight that she was rebooked to. The alternative I was offered was to fly out the next morning with a 9 hour layover in SF. I elected to go to the airport and sit on standby to get onto her flight. Her flight was scheduled to leave at 8:30. No planes arrived and no announcements were made until 9:30 (telling us that the flight would depart at 10:30. No agents were at the desk and there were at least 15 people in line. Many of them opted to go back outside of security to ask the font desk what was going on. Finally, a very angry woman came to the gate counter at 10:00 as she repeatedly told the passengers that she was supposed to get off her shift hours ago. As she began the boarding process, she told me that there was a seat on the flight. I responded by asking if she could book me on the connecting flight from SF to SeaTac. She responded frustratedly that I should have taken care of that earlier (which of course I couldn't do until I knew I had a seat on this flight). We got to SF and ran to our connecting flight (with only 9 minutes to spare). My wife paid $329 for a one-way flight from SB to Seattle (which is a LOT) expecting to leave SB at 6:15pm and arrive in Seattle at 10:30pm (by way of SF). Instead, what she got for her $329 was a very stressful experience of not knowing if I would be joining her and she got on a flight with me at 10:30 and landed in Seattle at 1:30am. We received poor Customer Service and vouchers or compensation for our inconvenience."

Pros: "-Flight Departed On Time From Newark To Phoenix Sunday 1/3/2016. -Flight Arrived 30 Minutes Early In Phoenix AZ. -United A.L. Fight Staff Is 1st Rate!"
Cons: "-United Airlines Check In Procedure @ Terminal C Newark International, Bag Drop Off & Colridinated TSA Check In System Was OverCrowded, Seemed Un-Organized, And Inefficient! -United Airlines Would Be Better Served To Assign Two Ajirline Agents To Assisit United Passengers With Bag Drop Offs & Flight/Seat Assignmnets. -Also The Fact That United A.L. Charges $25.00 Additional For Each Bag Is Ridiculous! Just Build The Cost Into Each Ticket Peice. Southwest Airlines Is Ahead Of The Curve On This! That's One Reason Why Southwest Is So Successful'"

Pros: "Excellent and friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."

Pros: "No turbulence smooth flight. Friendly pleasant pilot. Quickly landed parked and unloaded passengers."
Cons: "Longest security line I've ever seen. I almost missed my flight though I was 3 hours early. Weird set up at departures. At gate warned flight overbookedso we were all stressed we may not even get seat though mine was booked months in advance. I was in zone 4 and they only allowed zones 1-3 to stow carry on items that we had to already lug around the airport for hours. I was forced to check my regulation sized bag in the passageway to the plane as well as everyone else in my zone. Economy seat especially tiny and cramped. Unpleasant flight attendents."

Cons: "4 hour delay because of scheduling"

Pros: "The crew and pilot was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. It was two hours behind schedule. Then there was a delay in boarding, no entertainment on board unless you buy wifi or previously downloaded the united app to watch selected shows on your mobile device! Appalling to say the least! Whatever happened to the days when you get on an airplane and food and entertainment was a part of your ticket price! Another thing that bothered me was the fact that I had to pay $25 for my suitcase! Really United! Am I not allowed one piece of luggage? I don't like carry my bags around with me so now I have to pay to check it! Shouldn't that be the other way around! Charge for carry on luggage, it's such a hassle and also slows down boarding time, cases congestion in the hallway with everyone reaching for their luggage in the overhead bins! I can keep going, but what good is it gonna do. United airlines suck!"

Pros: "Amazing! Informative pilot, with fun geograpgical facts along the way. SMOOTHEST LANDING I HAVE WVER HAD!! Friendly staff. Flight was great."
Cons: "Planes seats are small, especially fitting 3 people in one row."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, times were great!"
Cons: "Crew a little snippy.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the morning of, I was rerouted through a later flight to AA when the United employee couldn't speak enough English to communicate, I misheard 2:30 when she actually said 2:13. Showed up an hour early as I always do at Eugene airport, only to have the gate shut in my face...we'd missed the flight.
