Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"

It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed.

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "see review headline above"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "Wait in Houston. Delayed flights. Not united fault"
Pros: "The plane was newer and reasonably clean looking."
Cons: "I was on the last row in a window seat. Throughout the entire flight tiny ice pellets kept flying out of the vent system above my head. When I mentioned it to the flight attendant, she just shrugged and said "it's just the air conditioner ", like tough luck. That was the only time I saw the attendant. No drinks, no snacks. I guess she didn't have time for the last 4 rows of seats, although the flight was 1 1/2 hours long."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Total of 4 hours delayed."
Cons: "Flight delayed for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "The young ladies who booked hotel after flight was cancelled and worked to get ne on a different flight closer to my interview was great."
Cons: "3-4 delays. Boarded the flight and then told we did not make the cut off time and pilot could not legally fly!!!!!! The stewards was NOT nice at all. The way she scolded a man for changing seats was embarrassing. I was utterly disgusted. Tgeybdud not explain the sense of urgency needed when boarding. Passengers would have moved faster."

Pros: "Even though this was a smaller plane, the seats were roomier"
Pros: "Courteous attendant. Light snack provided were enjoyable."

Cons: "Didn't get in until 3am"
Pros: "We didn't die in a fiery explosion. The flight attendants were nice too"
Cons: "I know that I was in economy, but JEEZ! Everything was super cramped. I don't take up much room, but you couldn't do anything. I had a larger dude partway into my seat, my seat barely leaned back (and would slowly creep it's way to upright anyway), and of course I had no leg room at all, not that I was expecting that. Also, a six hour flight with just a snack offered is pretty absurd. I know cutting corners saves money, but I'm still paying money and it would be nice to have a slightly more pleasant experience. This was easily one of my worst flight experiences"
Pros: "Excellent personnel, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "I was sitting in the boarding area and it was a quiet space, but I didn't hear the boarding announcement. I did get up when I saw that others were but meanwhile still didn't hear continuing announcements. Thank goodness for the excellent boarding sign which noted what zone was boarding."

Cons: "No entertainment provided"
Pros: "It was a great flight"
Pros: "I liked that when the plane actually arrived to newark that the boarding was swift. The pilot and flight crew were good."
Cons: "The plane was late. I flew out of Detroit because it was cheaper than flying out of Cleveland where I live. So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."
Pros: "Arrived to destination early"
Cons: "Asked to be moved to an empty row. Was told "no" by the stewardess, she then offered that same row to another passenger 5 minutes later."
Cons: "•Security was very weird and aggressive towards me. I was "acting suspiciously"...it was my first flight alone and I was confused on where to go •Sat on runway for 30 mins after we landed •Super small plane, barely any room to walk on/off plane"
Pros: "On time coming & going. Friendly"
Pros: "The actual flight was good. Didn't eat or drink so don't know. The less than perfect rating was because we left an hour late. Don't know how they handled folks with connecting flights but that can be a very stressful situation."
