Pros: "I have never been so comfortable"

Cons: "on my 1st flight with Alaska Airlines: - when i arrived - I was told that my young daughter and I couldn't sit together! - the snotty agent said I should have known that with my economy ticket - the flight was 3 HOURS LATE! - they gave us food vouchers after I spent $20 on food! - never fly Alaska!!"

Pros: "Ride was smooth. Just wish certain passengers were quiet"

Cons: "We where diverted to Portland due to the snow. I would like for the staff to have given us more info like what our option where as far as getting to our destination."

Cons: "It’s one of those things that becomes so annoying when traveling. I choose not to store anything in an overhead bin, yet the moment the plane lands, other passengers jump up, knock us sitting patiently in the head with their overhead bags and then rush the front. Ruins the otherwise excellent exp."

Pros: "The crew at Alaska is top tier! They are always the friendliest, on the phone or in person. I was stuck in the Seattle snow storm and they were so helpful with flight changes"

Pros: "I liked that when due to a medical reason, I was able to be given the option of rebooking my flight even though there would be a penalty and extra charges and I would need to pay the difference."
Cons: "When I called to rebook my flight within the year and about 3 months in advance of the desired date, unfortunately Latam made multiple errors and also told me that rebooking flights only are eligible for more expensive flights. Even though there were other less expensive flights that I was able to find and see online, they insisted the only flight available had a price difference of $4,000+ dollars. the original ticket was around $550 so this was absurd. Not helpful at all, how frustrating."

BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?"

Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."

Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."

Cons: "Look at boxes above!"

Pros: "Nothing, and I’m a very agreeable person.... Always"
Cons: "Every person employed by United is either overworked until the point of jadedness is issued with their first paycheck, or they get paid in Monopoly money. There were flight delays, and really I was good with that, but when I approached a staff member, he literally said “what do you want?!” Before I even opened my mouth. The phone lines are operated by someone in a foreign country. And after the flight caused me an overnight layover, they offer you a measly discount voucher for a place to stay. I can only hope that someone out there is getting better treatment than the poor people I saw on this flight, or at any united desk I attempted to get help from."

Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Pros: "The basic economy check-in is a good idea. Especially to control the overhead baggage situation."
Cons: "If you're going to have the basic economy ticket program, don't make me jump from Kiosk to Kiosk searching for a United Employee to help me when the yellow advisory screen pops up. I showed up 3 hours before my flight. There was no line. I had to wait 20 minutes for assistance. I can't imagine the amount of time to check-in closer to departure."

Pros: "10"
Cons: "10"

Pros: "No issues and it was on time"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Cons: "The gang stalkers that Kayak and United let sit next to me."

Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."

Pros: "Likr the Gogo entdrtainment systrem."
Cons: "The GoGo app doesn't work with the Android phone I have"

Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."
Cons: "When we got to LA event though we were early we had to wait. I know its not the airlines fault but it sucked."

Pros: "overall the trip was pleasant, i dont like my 1 carryon be selected to not go in the overhead when groups like couples or families get to take on a few - but i did receive my carryon in a timely fashion considering we were not let off board after 15 min of landing"

Pros: "Gate personnel were great."

Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."

Pros: "The slim seats are nice, but lack the wired head rests!"

Pros: "Plane interior was bright and new."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval. Chairs don't recline."

Pros: "This airline is completely disorganized and with no apologies. I waited an hour in a bag drop line and then an hour and a half in the plane with no real explanation as to why. Planes are super bare bones which is fine. They just seem to be incredibly understaffed and unorganized as a company. All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"
