Pros: "Great snack offerings, friendly holiday crew"
Cons: "Felt very good"
Pros: "The price was great."
Cons: "The place was packed. The service was just okay."
Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Food choices"
Cons: "Correct information about time of flight. I was told that the time of my flight hadn’t changed though I got several emails stating it did."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "I made it safely to LAX"
Cons: "We waited in the plane on the tarmac for an hour. My boarding pass did not have a seat assignment, when I approached Alaska agents at the gate, they were rude and dismissive. Arrived late to LAX. Alaska offers free texting & entertainment while in the air it didn’t work with my iPhone."
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!!"
Cons: "Person next to me was tobacco smoking! And he was really obese taking up 2 seats! Airline shouldnt have noticed it and took action!"
Cons: "COMPUTER SYSTEM WENT DOWN HUGE LINES CHECKING EVERYONE IN MANUALLY AFTER AN HOUR DELAY MY FLIGHT WAS CANCELED NEXT AVAILABLE FLIGHT WAS 6 HOURS LATER BY THE TIME THE FLIGHT REBOOKED"
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: "Excellent and courteous cabin crew. United Flight attendants are a surly bunch of weaponized employees that seem to so hate their jobs and/or their airline... but you all know that. Life is too short."
Pros: "Being in the service industry I completely understand how important customer service is! Alaskan airlines have asked their staff to use the customers name as much as possible. It was great to see that when I was borning my name was used. This was not an ordinary monotone thank you that every single person gets. The “ Have a nice flight and Thank you for flying with us”, was cheerful and upbeat and I was greeted with a smile. During my flight the customers names were used as they were asking to take orders as well as passing out food as though you were known person to them. I am not a regular flyer, I did not use my credit card, the fact that they used my name means Alaskan has a trick to the trade that others don’t.. I am not a regular flyer, I did not use my credit card, my flight attendants knew my name. What an amazing experience."
Pros: "That there was still a little bit a Virgin America still present! Love entertainment is available an absolute bonus that I wish traditional Alaska planes started installing!!"
Cons: "The entertainment of no headphones available and most headphones are now Bluetooth presents a problem. No snacks offered!!"
Pros: "Excellent crew and service. The flight was comfortable and the inflight entertainment really helped make the flight shorter."
Pros: "Crew was nice, movies were fast"
Cons: "I could barley sit in my seat because the over weight man in the middle seat took a third of my seat with his body spilling over into my seat. I had to lean all the way to the right side so my back hurts really bad after I got off the plane. The angle I had to sit in is unacceptable and he should not be allowed to have a middle seat let alone one seat. He needed an extension just to buckle his belt."
Pros: "Excellent crew. very friendly. No attitudes"
Cons: "they were not ready for us at LAX. We spent 20 minutes in a remote corner of the airline waiting for a gangway so we could go down to the tarmac and wait another 50 minutes for buses. No gate, no buses, just standing around. Terrible planning for our arrival"
Pros: "The crew was nice and they had a nice selection for movies"
Cons: "Was not informed that the gate was changed. Luckily I checked the departures screen at the time we were supposed to be boarding. I made an announcement to all passengers at the gate that Alaska changed the gate on all of us without informing anyone"
Pros: "The short flight home."
Cons: "Everything else. Flight attendant was making ballon animals while I was trying to sleep!"
Pros: "The overall flight was fine bit the change of flight times and delay in LA was unacceptable!"
Cons: "Didn't like the 5 hour delay and the lack of ability to contact Justlfy directly. Will never use them again."
Pros: "Alaska is the best!"
Cons: "They did not let me use the restroom, I called for assistance and they just came and turned off the assistance light and left, I had to wait 40 mins just to use the bathroom because they didn’t want to open it, I understand that the seatbelts light was on but when you have to go you have to go. The ladies in the back were really rude"
Pros: "Love that they have limited free WiFi and charging ports at every seat!"
Pros: "Genially friendly atmosphere"
Pros: "Great service for an affordable price!"
Pros: "Our flight out of Seattle was delayed 5 hours and we missed our connection at LAX. When this came clear to us sitting on the tarmac, we called to be placed on next flight leaving at pm. We were told that at the time there was 10 seats available, BUT it could not be done over the phone. We had to wait until we reached LAX. When arriving COPA had no one attending their counters. Again I was told on the phone to wait until 6pm to rebook at counter. Come 6pm at the counter, no seats was available. Copa airlines would not talk to us and tried to turf it on Alaska. But Copa owned the ticket. Alaska would not help either when we arrived to LAX. It is now 9pm and I am on the phone with an Alaska agent who is wonderful and helping us getting to Panama to celebrate our father and father in law."
Pros: "Perfect all the way around"
Cons: "Passenger next to me seated in the aisle seat had a seat belt extension and needed two seats. I was in the middle and had a very uncomfortable flight. His arms were on my side and fortunately my husband was in the window seat and I leaned into him the entire time. The mans wife was not next to him but across the aisle and I understand why! He also had very poor hygiene."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly crew"
Cons: "The 737 was old and did not have power at the seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everthing they got delayed in L.A so that mess up or connecting flight to cebu come on now if we are able to wait for your crew why cant u wait for your paying customers for 10 mins more?"
Pros: "Kind, caring flight crew. We had a wonderful flight"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Row 30 in a 737-900 had more legroom than other airlines' :premium economy"! I love Alaska Airlines!"
Pros: "Good customer service before after and during the flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to tellers taking their time doing their job"
Pros: "The crew was super nice, from when we boarded the plane to when we got off. (:"
Pros: "Great prices, comfortable seats, enough space, and no extra fees for the additional bag I checked in. the staff members were also very polite, welcoming, knowledgeable, and helpful."
Pros: "Being stra"
Pros: "It's more comfortable than some other small commercial aircraft"
Cons: "The seats doesn't recline much which is terrible for someone with back problems. Boarding the airplane was a joke. Alaska was boarding 3 planes at once and everyone had to walk the tarpit then up the aircrafts. They had to give you a color to make sure you're not boarding the wrong plane and had to repeat their announcements several times for 20 minutes since people arrive at different time to board the planes. Definitely can benefit from some organization."
Pros: "The ambience of the cabin was great. It was very relaxing. All the free digital touchscreens and equipment helped pass the time as well."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice as well as people in baggage. Quick flight..."
Cons: "Terrible customer service at ticket counter, flight was two hours delayed on my way out and no one was at the counter in the middle of the night so I had to bring my checked bag through security to have them then throw out my liquids! On return flight I was told to be there two hours in advance not one and they wouldn't even offer to put my luggage on another flight! Needless to say my parents had to come back to get it! They were the absolute worst, even the customer service wouldn't take responsibility and offered a $50 credit...never flying with them again."
Cons: "my flight on Alaska was delayed 3 out of 4 times I've flown in December/January! I will start looking into other carriers."
Pros: "Free hour of wifi as a T-mobile customer. The ability to change seats right up to the moment of boarding. It was my first flight ever and The Captain and crew did a great job to make the flight enjoyable and comfortable."
Cons: "As someone who has meticulously traveled the world over on Google Earth, i was enthralled to finally get to do it in real life. I was looking to bring up a GPs trackers or some kind of map application so i knew where i was flying over. I couldn't gain any access to any type of application due to GPS restrictions. This might be a rule for plane rides that i'm not aware of however."
Pros: "I didn't expect that we can have some snacks (pretzel) during the flight! And the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Free alcohol"
Cons: "A three-hour wait on the runway in Seattle and flying ants to stop in LA to change Cruise. What should have been a six-hour flight for me turned out to be a 12-hour flight."
Cons: "Lost my biggest piece of luggage and they ripped another one , absolutely ridiculous !"
Pros: "Second round of soft drinks."
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for tall folks"
Cons: "I carry photo equipment in a carry on bag because of expense, damage control and temperature control. Unfortunately I can not leave it for baggage people to handle (although I would love to.) When I got my carry on to the greeting flight attendant I explained I had just finished a shoot and I was sorry that I needed to keep the bag as carry on. Flight Attendant: there was nothing she could do and I needed to go back down the stairs, even though people were still boarding and leave it with the baggage people. Me: "In the past the flight attendant put the bag in that closet." (I pointed to the locked closet where they keep their bags.) Flight Attendant: I cant open it because it's locked. Me: "The key is kept there." (I pointed to where the key is kept. I know because I've done this trip so many times before.) Flight Attendant: "See if it will fit under your seat." It did... but I had my knees in my chin for the entire flight. Thanks, Ann"
Pros: "Faster than was predicted"
Cons: "Pretty cramped economy"
Pros: "Liked the opportunity to check in a day early and pick my own seat; also liked the option to pay a nominal fee $15 plus tax to board early."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "the seat confusion was a hassle but the crew was nice about it."
Cons: "the flight was oversold and i didn't get a seat assignment until the last minute. Then the seat they gave me was already booked to someone else, so i had to wait again on the plane to get a seat. on my outgoing flight to seattle a few days prior, i intentionally didn't check a bag because i had a late arrival and early work the next day, was forced to check it on the plane and then they lost it for an hour after i landed so i didn't get home until 2am. frustrating, but again the crew was nice about the mistakes."
Pros: "The seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "It would be nice if the flight attendant was a bit more friendly. Smile works."
Pros: "Just overall solid experience, especially considering how terrible other airlines have become"
Cons: "Although the space around the seat is acceptable, the seats bottoms are horrible. It feels like sitting on a bench seat. It really needs more cushion."
Pros: "Ryan the Mint class attendant was amazing"
Cons: "The cod was ... fishy"
Cons: "Free food beyond chips"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, personable, but also efficient."
Pros: "Some of the crew members are just simply rude! Whenever you ask what they have to drink, they roll their eyes & say look at the menu or say I just said it earlier. It bothers them for you to ask them for something."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed 56 minutes & had to work 6:30am I was expecting to be home by 2 that way I would get enough rest, then the plug for headphones did not work."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, love the personal entertainment system. I’ve never been in first class but that looked better than the other planes I’ve been on too!! Meditations for anxious flyers?? Wonderful!"
Cons: "Only thing that could’ve been better was getting my booze for free. Otherwise, I was legitimately surprised at how great the accomodations were!"
Pros: "Aircraft nice, clean and modern"
Cons: "Entertainment had technical issues."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with Jetblue"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It's so sad that passengers cannot be offered even water to drink."
Cons: "Nothing to drink. But I really appreciate the spacious leg room."
Cons: "Got to the gate one minute late and wouldn’t let me on"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"
Cons: "My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked."
Cons: "Gary was his name. I went up to go to the bathroom, I had heard the announcement prior to that and no one had mentioned anything about seatbelts or staying in my seat. I made sure before I got up. As I get up he approaches me and said "you need to stay in your seat, began to shake his head,"they mentioned it like 5 times", he then said. I really dont appreciate the attitude. It's not what you say it's how you say it. Work on your attitude Gary from JetBlue"
Pros: "Missed flight gate changed not enough notice"
Cons: "Gate changed not enough notice missed flight"
Pros: "I like jetblue, everything is excellent,."
Pros: "Easy going boarding, easy going staff, excellent amenities with personal large size video screen, elegant cabin with cool blue light and with accessible self-serving snacks and drinks and just overall very clean modern plane"
Cons: "All the other airlines"
Pros: "We got in ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The staff seemed tired and overworked. I got hit in the head by a flight attendant with the snack tray. An accident but still. Once we landed and we’re at the gate it took almost 40 min to get off the plane. That was ridiculous. Then after the long walk to baggage, luggage was still not there. Again we waited. Too much waiting after a long flight. I fly to NYC all the time and I’m usually in the city one hour after I land and it took 2 hours 15 min to get to Queens. Usually I have great flights with JetBlue. Last night was not the case. You get a C."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Red eye flight was delayed over an hour. Caused me to miss my connection in the AM, my two new options were an out of state airport or a six hour wait at the airport. Unfortunately the girl who sat next to me had panic attacks and ‘seizures’ the whole flight long, requesting medical personnel on board and the constant attention of the attendants. No sleep to be had. By far my worst experience flying all around."
Pros: "Most everything was great."
Cons: "Ended up sitting in the very back row, so wasn't able to lean back as far. Otherwise it was fine."
Cons: "Checking in was difficult for me. My husband was able to check in through the cruise line. when we got to the airport the counter was not open. i checked in but did not get a seat assignment. When we got to the gate our flight to Boston was delayed until 3am from midnight. I tried getting a seat assignment but was told I had to wait until all the other flights were taken care of. I finally got my seat with my husband after 10p. I am a very nervous flyer so this was very nerve racking for me. But once I got my seat I calmed down. We always fly Jet Blue when we can. The flight itself was wonderful. And the counter folks were very patient with the customers dealing with delays."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"
Cons: "See above please."
Pros: "All our flights with jetblue were excellent"
Cons: "My assigned airline steward seemed as though we were doing him a favor in flying with jet blue. Pleasantries such as a smile and a sincere your welcome really don't cost much, but give a good impression of the company your happy to work for. He must not be happy to work there."
Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"
Cons: "We were not told we’d be sitting next to a woman with a dog. It was highly offensive to sit and eat next to a dog that smelled and panted constantly, and would shed occasionally. Why not solve this problem by asking passengers when they book a seat if they do or don’t want to sit next to pets? Not everyone can do this since many have allergies. Also, this is not hygienic. Very unsatisfied."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and they had lots of options for entertainment"
Cons: "The plane is very cramped. I am a very small person and I still felt like I couldn’t really move to get things under the seat in front of me. The crew also only came around with food once during the flight, and I happened to be sleeping then, so I didn not get a chance to have any food."
Pros: "Quick security check."
Cons: "Temperature to hot in main cabin during flight."
Pros: "They made a potentially difficult departure from JFK in a snowstorm super easy. And they couldn't be more helpful."
Cons: "Man, the regular seats are just too small."
Cons: "That we arrived 30 minutes early and had to taxi for 30 minutes until there was a gate. Annoying!"
Pros: "The boarding process went so smoothly."
Cons: "One flight attendant, a tall gal with brown hair, talked so loudly to her crew mate through out the flight that we could hear her over our ear buds. She made sleep impossible until the last 45 mins of the trip."
Cons: "Delayed departing SeaTac due to broken bin, so sat at gate over a half an hour. As a result missed rental car pick up time in Long Beach on a holiday weekend. Had to rent from another higher cost rental car firm as was a “walk up rate renter”. Spent an hour getting the last rental car which of course reeked of pot smoke smell, and was a compact."
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Pros: "Friendly crew and highly comfortable flight. Will be switching to Jet Blue!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system crashed three times and had to be rebooted which cause you to start everything over. When I use the Wi-Fi for the Amazon prime option it was very spotty and had to reload quite a bit during the flight from JFK to LAX. They are by Miss clean the staff was good but the entertainment system and the movie choices were very old and not really very interesting."
Pros: "The crew is always friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Lots of leg room and good entertainment."
Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."
Pros: "Love Jet Blue!"
Pros: "Comfy seats, quick boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment touchscreen didn't work well, kept acting as if i had pressed things when I didn't"
Pros: "Free food."
Cons: "Wrong sandwich. Soggy sandwich. Sound was scratchy. Movies need closed caption option."
Pros: "The woman at the check in desk was great in helping me to find a decent seat."
Cons: "Your web system did not allow me to choose a seat and wasted a lot of my time. Blue chips are now mixed with sweet potato, ruining the experience."
Pros: "Low fares. On time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Americans today travel with hand luggage and duffels which should be in the hold as ticketed baggage. This practise delays boarding, delays disembarkation, makes the aircraft top heavy in takeoff and landing and creates 'pop open and drop' type accidents. Nothing larger than a purse should be allowed as hand carry."
Pros: "Read some reviews regarding tardiness but our flights out of LAX and return from NY (go see US Open Tennis Championship) were either on time or early. On-board entertainment was great since we can watch LIVE matches from US Open on the return trip. However, you have to bring your own ear phone/head set otherwise it will cost some $$. Free WIFI too"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Cons: "They don't have free meal services and they ran out of the meals you can purchase, we weren't pleased"
Pros: "Good movies and sufficient leg room."
Cons: "We didn't even know we were boarding - our destination wasn't on the display board and you couldn't hear the woman announcing who was able to board. Very disorganized. We sat on the runway for a long time before taking off and we boarded the plan much later than the delayed flight time."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "It was freezing. We boarded 1 1/2 hours late. The stewards were a bit short and not very patient. I saw people being allowed to board with way more bags than you said were permitted and some of the on plane bags were so huge that the front people had to check their bags at the last minute. Boarding was slow as it was clear that the stuff was not fitting in the overhead compartments. What happened to dimensions of bag restrictions? It is frustrating to the people that abide by the rules to see them so flagrantly ignored."

Great customer service. Safety and cleanliness. Fly delta.

The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!

Pros: "Sitting in the exit row"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Mask enforcement"
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "The Seattle gate agents never said which flight they were calling and since neighboring gates were boarding at the same time it was very confusing and rather chaotic."
Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Pros: "excellent crew, efficient and fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. Too narrow and I am a small person. Considering we paid to upgrade seats, they should be wider. Leg room was fine."
Pros: "I liked the polite friendly staff!"
Cons: "I wish you would give me more to complain about! Just kidding! No complaints"
Pros: "Everything! Thank you"
Cons: "Nothing. Thanks"
Cons: "It was canceled"
Pros: "They cared for the passengers, helped me with my baby’s bag"
Cons: "Nothing @ this time"
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."
Cons: "N-S"
Pros: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Cons: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Cons: "Was late almost for an hoir."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"
Pros: "Over an hour late wth!!!"
Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Pros: "Impeccable as usual"
Cons: "No tv on flight from Seattle to Los Angeles, I felt like I was flying United. That was the only thing that was extremely disappointing"
Pros: "On time flight arrival"
Cons: "Baggage Claim was very disorganized. They indicated bags were to be picked up at a carousel that was under construction. When we went to the service desk, they directed us to another carousel which was incorrect. There was no announcement made and there was a delay in updating the baggage claim board."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Mu seat!"
Cons: "My baggage took for to long to arrive"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t care about you or to help, the llady was so rude and unfriendly, this situation ruin my whole trip"
Cons: "I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. 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: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me."
Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Cons: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down. Worst experience ever with Delta."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. On time efficient boarding. Security in SEA-TAC less than 5 min. Different snacks both flights. Prompt service. On time. Power sources at seats worked."
Cons: "Airport gate area in LAX filthy. No seats. Garbage cans overflowing. Bathrooms smelled like New Orleans street on a Sunday morning. Entertainment system broken."
Cons: "Delayed"

The plane is old and really small. Crew was great

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Fast and easy flight"
Cons: "It’s was very good flight"
Pros: "Nice Crew. Very accommodating."
Cons: "The input for the headphones were not working properly at my seat location on the flight. Seat #10c on a A321 Airbus from Miami to L.A."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed tired."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "That the flight attendant took pity on me when she could see how flustered I was boarding and let me move up to the business class section."
Cons: "The gate agent was awful! She decided that my bag was too big to go onboard even before I put it in the measurement thing. I did have to rearrange some items - but then it fit! Regardless of the fact it completely fit on my first leg of the trip."
Cons: "Changed my flight time bc of Max 8 which ruined my meeting schedule. Then the outlets in my row were not working so I could not do work or watch entertainment."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Pros: "The crew was probably the only positive thing of the flight."
Cons: "Late boarding because of downsizing plane and overbooking, than sitting on a plane for an additional hour after boarding completed while it was very hot inside. Departed and landed with a delay. Very old airplane with no individual fans above the seats, no outlets to charge devices and no entertainment system."
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Amazing flight..,......... Great service"
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
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: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."
Pros: "The entertainment factor of people with huge bags being told they have to check them at the gate!"
Cons: "Middle seats!"
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All. Disappointed to see Etihad airlines declining so rapidly. What used to be my preferred airlines, not anymore and definitely can predict the downfall."
Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Pilot was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"
Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The check in process with the kiosks. It was very easy."
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches that we had to pay for. We didn't have to do that on the Aer Lingus flight, which was for the same amount of time. In the other flight we had choice in entetainment."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in to my flight 24 hours prior to my flight on my AA app and or website. Also wasn't able to check in at kiosk at airport therefore had to wait in line to check in with a clerk which slowed my whole trip mood down."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "Claudia was wonderful, I would love for more flight attendants to have her cheerful attitude."
Cons: "My snack was mini pretzels"
Pros: "Everything about the flight seemed fast. From the boarding process to the landing process. It was a very fast flight. Much faster than Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "It was a 6 am flight and the crew looked like it was a 6 am flight. No smiles. No energy. They looked like they didn't like their job. Maybe they needed coffee."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Once again my flight was delayed, this time 50 minutes!! . Last time i had to stop in Vegas I got stuck there overnigh because my flight had been delayed and to mKe things worse they also managed to Miss my flights connection in Miami after they had booked me a new flight.. With a window seat that had no window. I old the flight attendant that I needed help stowing my backpack in the overhead bin, not because it was that heavy or big, but because the previous flight had been 5 hrs long and after being stuck in the middle seat my back was killing me and lifting my bag over my head would have triggered a muscle spasm. I have a back condition and they refused to help me. She would not even hear me out and insisted on me to check my bag, which I refused to because my laptop and tablet were in there without propper padding to protect them. The same flight attendant had already yelled at a passanger and was making a scene that made several other passengers uncomfortable. i understand the flight was full and they were delayed enough, but the airline clients should not have to pay for the airline's mistakes."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "Food!!!"
Pros: "It was a pretty good flight. Everything was great other than I felt very rushed and felt like I bothered the flight attendant when I asked for sugar with my tea. I tried to ask for a stir stick with my sugar but she had already moved on. The flight was also very cold."
Cons: "The temperature could have been warmer (i had pants and 4 shirts on and still felt cold). I also felt like I was rushed and unable to get all the items I needed with my tea from the female flight attendant."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Pros: "Was your standard airlplane."
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to a mechanical, then again because the cleaning crew didn’t do a good enough job the first time, then a seat mechanical, and then the truck used to back out onto the tarmac broke down"
Pros: "I liked the fact that they were quick to respond when asked a question."
Cons: "Lack of water. I was told I was only allowed 1 4 ounce cup of water from the galley per meal."
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
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."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Pros: "Short flight, nothing to do with airline"
Cons: "Boarding was annoying and employees were rude. Had just gotten off of a connecting United flight and one of the employees barked at me that my carry on was too big and I had to close extra zipper even though I had no issues in the United flight I had just gotten off of......... I was starving and didn’t get a chance to grab food due to short layover time. We took a while to take off. We’re supposed to leave at 4:15 and left closer to 5pm. Then when we were on the air, flight attendants took a while to provide the snacks and water and they didn’t even get around to our row before they had to sit down for touch down. Smh. Terrible and thoughtless. Seats were uncomfortable and very little leg space. Entertainment only works if you’re able to download their app and of course no free WiFi because airlines want to force you to spend more money after you’ve spent a large amount to fly to your destination."
Pros: "Wifi wasn't working. People were loud and rambunctious."
Cons: "The boarding process with United is always a mess. Lines way longer than necessary and spilling into the main walk area of the airport."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Cons: "Lost bags and every time I called to find out where they were I would get a different story. I was told it would be on the next flight for the next 5 flights."
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "I'm so glad I got to sit next to my wife."
Cons: "I had to check in my carry-on when I got to the gate. I had my snacks and entertainment packed in my bag so I had to unpack my stuff for the flight. Once on the plane there was plenty of room for my bag to go in the overhead compartment. Not only did I deal with the discomfort of having to carry my stuff in my hand on to my next flight but I had to deal with a flight attendant that had no self awareness of his surrounding. The flight attendant ran into my shoulder more times than I can count. Such an irritating flight."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
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."
Pros: "Although I arrived a few minutes late, the check-in agent managed to get my bag on the flight. When I missed my flight, the agent quickly got me on another flight (with a competitor airline), with no additional charge."
Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
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: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Cons: "The gang stalkers that Kayak and United let sit next to me."
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "I got late to my next flight !! I loose my flight ."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "Well no movie screens, and when you get on the plane they say there is internet movies, but you need to download the ultimate app for United to have it work!! The internet was so slow I could not download on my iPhone 7 Plus with 256 gigabytes and well No Movie!!!! It is the first time that I have not watched or played something in maybe 40yrs!! Also I asked for a seat that would recline and they gave me the only seats that do not because the emergency exit was behind!! The had no sandwiches or salads, they only had chips, crackers, etc"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Easy connection to movies."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff very nice, plane left late but made up time."
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and did not recline enough to provide for a nap."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "From the Take off location in Low Angeles the United personnel was terrific...my parents both have health issues and the wheelchair..go cart service was great..."
Cons: "When returning from Houston to LA...i appreciated that the wheelchair service was ready when they arrived....what i didn't like was that as we entered the elevator one of the workers made a comment to his partner that there was to much weight cause the elevator made a certain noise...but not as if he was concerned more jokingly...my mother is heavy set ...she and our party thought that was rude and unnecessary...they both looked at her...i was going to bring it to there attention, but what good would of it done...so please address it....there were 2 gentlemen...one pushing my father which was a Hispanic male and the other was a black male pushing mother...the one who made the comment was the Hispanic male....and another problem was the airplane was very warm..."
Pros: "My lucky lucky butt"
Cons: "That I wasn't going to make my connecting flight because of delays which meant overnight in airport- they wouldn't put me in a hotel!! But I made my connecting flight.... Because it was suuuuuper delayed- no one's fault. So scratch that poor I'll give it 2 stars..."
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."
Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Pros: "The captain of the plane was polite and kind."
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."
Pros: "Flight was delayed but arrived only 1/2 hour later. Check in was smooth. Plane was rather old and not enough leg space."
Pros: "Boarding was organized. When we wanted to check in our cabin baggage afraid that the overhead bins may be full by the time we board, we were properly guided that there is ample space, so there was no need to check them in. This saved us waiting time at LAX."
Cons: "We were not allowed to do online check-in because of codeshare, which was not very convenient."
Pros: "Likr the Gogo entdrtainment systrem."
Cons: "The GoGo app doesn't work with the Android phone I have"
Pros: "Great movie selection, easy short distance gate connection"
Cons: "Being delayed on the tarmac for over 1hrs and we arrived 35 min early!!"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"
Pros: "Once in the air the flight was great."
Cons: "1/2 hr before boarding should have occurred we were notified of a delay- 1/2 hr. I knew I was going to miss my connection and asked, and told if I did they would put me on the next one out an hr later, but could not nor would not address it until necessary. When we arrived, they informed me of the gate to go to... which we ran to... and when we got to there were told the plane left 15 minutes ago."
Pros: "My flight wasn't full so I had no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."
Pros: "Fast"
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"
