Pros: "Polite crew :)"
Cons: "Pretzels!!! Seriously, the Biscof cookies are not as good. Of course, I like salty :)"
Cons: "Better snacks premium members"
Cons: "Correct gate information. The Yakutat to Cordova (#61) flight was delayed, which caused me to rush to the departing gate (told C2). Arrived at gate C8. Retraced my steps and made it in time for the connecting flight. Thanks to the crew."
Pros: "It was on time, arrival and departure. Boarding procedure smooth"
Cons: "Flight attendant Lisa was always rude, there’s no entertainment and the sits are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "In a 3 hour flight with no food service, drinks only, not too much the crew can do besides to smile at you when they welcome you to the plane and when you leave"

Pros: "Crew was kind, friendly and funny. Gogo inflight entertainment was great, and made the trip go by faster."
Cons: "Less turbulence"
Cons: "It is a late night/early morning 5 1/2 hour flight. Seats are not as comfortable as some airlines I have flown on such as Delta and Canada Air. No coffee offered early morning before landing which would have been nice"
Pros: "Simple and easy"
Cons: "They’re amazing crews"
Pros: "Even a short period of travel they are helpful and entertaining people"
Cons: "I just don’t like giving only a 1 pc of biscuit and a 1cup of soda or drinks for almost 6 hrs of travel. At least they must give a 1meal dinner or lunch and or breakfast"
Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPad to rent or on seat tv screen"
Pros: "Flight had a mechanical issue. They kept us informed, provided vouchers for food, and a discount on a future flight. We also were offered a free drink once the flight finally did take off. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour delay, however, we deplaned after about 50 minutes."
Cons: "In Orlando there were no Alaska Airlines Agents until 1:30 in the afternoon. There was a very long line of customers by the time they got there. The kiosks would not print baggage tags, there was no one to drop your bags with. We waited 2 1/2 hours, having to sit on the floor because there are no chairs in the terminal. When we finally got on the plane I witnessed the miss handling of pets being loaded by the baggage handlers. They had 3 pet carriers on the cart. Two were set apart on the bottom with the third tipped diagonally in the the space between on top of the other 2. Then the picked up and plunked down on the belt. That animal would have had no water for the 5.5 hour flight as the dishes in the carrier were spilled over."
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"

Cons: "Their wasn't anything I disliked."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"
Pros: "Had no food or entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"
Pros: "This flight is reliable and is staffed by very competent staff. Even in bad weather the flight goes. There is a sense of family and community on the flight as a lot of people know each other."
Cons: "If you were looking for a luxury for really good food even in first class this is not the place."
Pros: "Flight and ground crews were great and very helpful with elderly mother"
Pros: "Everything was awesone...the airline crew were helpful and approachable."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top notch on my pole! Always been Awesome and I have flown with them for the last 20 years!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Was on schedule, not a full fligh, no crying babies, and arrived early."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Alaska airlines has got it together, probably the best airline company out there. Customer service, punctuality, comfort, baggage department are all top notch!!! I'm so glad they're in Philadelphia so I can come back to this tightly run ship after struggling with other airlines for years!!! My experience was AWESOME!!!!"
Pros: "All around high quality airline, very professional and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "They need a better selection of snacks, and seats with built in monitors to watch tv instead of the hand held tablets available for rent. The tablets can also sit on the tray but it's not comfortable on my neck."
Pros: "Nice flight and crew."
Cons: "I got spoiled by the first flight with new plane and great crew, but no complaints really."
Pros: "the seats were much more comfortable and the fans worked. I had a way better flight."
Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."
Cons: "The flight was oversold by at least 12 people, so even though I paid almost $600 I almost didn't get on because they wouldn't give me a seat assignment."
Pros: "The service was great, everyone was very friendly!"
Cons: "The change from virgin airlines to Alaska was a bit confusing. I was told conflicting things and was not told that I would have to pic up my checked bag to re-check it. There needs to be more clear instructions on what someone needs to do if they are flying with both airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and efficient. The seats were comfortable, but my wive got squeezed by a large person next to her. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but they need to recline or have foot rest. When I missed the flight your CS was excellent her name was Whitney and she was in Seattle.."
Cons: "Should not charge for WIFI service in the air"
Cons: "delays resulted in being on the plane four hours. Food consisted of cookies. Seated in back of plane where three flight attendants were chatting at the top of their lungs for the *entire* GODDAM flight. oh, it was a 10 pm - 12:10 AM flight. How considerate."
Pros: "• Quick to board plane and take off • Flight arrived sooner than expected • built in plugs so you can charge your computer or phone."
Cons: "They have a 20 minute policy for baggage claim. At the 19 minute mark they sent up about 20 bags and stoped. It took them another 30 minutes to start sending more bags. One of the airline attendants spelt a fruit package on the floor in front of me. The juice from the package got all over my bag below the seat in front of me, getting important military paperwork damaged and she didn't even apologize."
Pros: "It was a beautiful flight. Everyone was kind and accomodating."
Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"
Pros: "Mostly smooth flight and good service."
Cons: "Didn't use provided entertainment service."
Cons: "My wife cleaned the seat headrest with a disinfectant wipe and it was very dirty."

Gate agents in Seattle were fabulous and extra observant. Thanks for doing a great job!

Too crowded. Stale almonds. Boarding very slow. Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful.

It was really full but that’s how it goes.

First class was terrible! It began with the customer service agent at the boarding gate taking being completely rude to the first class customers waiting to board. She/he (it was difficult to tell if it was a man or woman) yelled at everyone and said “it doesn’t take a genius to understand that only military or people with special needs may board, my god!!!” I’ve never seen such unprofessionalism from Delta. Then my husband and I went to our seats in first class and the flight attendant had left their paperwork and folders on our seats. I waited for a while to see if he would pick it up. He did not, so I picked it up and handed it to him. He then replied “oh we’re going to put you to work and pass out the agriculture forms”. When it came time for the meal he stated “we only have kale salad so do you want it or not?” My husband replied,” no I don’t like kale”. The flight attendant then replies “okay you don’t want it because that’s all we have”. My husband was seated in 1A, how do they have only one choice remaining out of the 3 when he’s in the first seat?? The flight attendant was very rude! As a loyal Delta customer, I was absolutely appalled at the unprofessional behavior from both customer service agents and first class flight attendant! I have to say that I will think twice before booking my next flight (next month) on Delta due to this experience.

Pros: "The staff were lovely."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Last second gate change was confusing and poorly communicated"
Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."

Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "The crew was beautiful and very hospitable and friendly. Loved the movies on board and snacks."
Cons: "Nothing, Delta is the best!"
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Pros: "Clean first class seat."
Cons: "My connecting flight, and the the flight not being delayed the night before."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Yes Crew was amazing. Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "The “newbies” were excited and loud, the main attendant was very.long.winded.every.single.time.she.spoke."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Snack mix tasted plain."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the boarding process was smooth, wwe did depart late, but we arrived in plenty of time to make my connection."
Cons: "Leave on time"
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"

Pros: "I love it when there is a TV screen at my seat."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Service the crew gave. Smooth fligh"
Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Cons: "No issues. Smooth ride. Decent service."
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Pros: "I liked the check-in kiosk, but only because I had no bags to check. I liked being able to choose my own seat. I liked that the flight was uneventful. I liked the staff at all stages, they were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They made me shove my purse into my knapsack to fit within their two bag policy. That's a first for me. My Delta flight did not do that."
Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "Delta’s crew were professional"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, reclining only about an inch is not enough for a 5+ hr trip"
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Flight attendants were extremely cordial and efficient. High compliments to the first cabin crew. Florida based crew and they were excellent.

Wi-Fi kept going in and out, we were delayed 30 min without any warnings, flight was freezing, and snacks are a joke.

The flights are all packed full and the overhead bins are full of things like purses, stuffed animals, and other lightweight bags instead of putting them under the seat. This makes it hard to get actual suitcases up there. The new hook thing for setting your viewing device on is a nice touch though.

I arrived at the airport to learn the flight was delayed a day; as a priority member, an attendant assured me he would help if I sat down. Never saw him again. Had to buy a new ticket to return late that night.

Maintenance delay for 2 hours after Canceling my flight earlier in the week. So typical for this poorly run airline. Will make better choices for future flights.

Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful and the Captain’s in-flight announcements were helpful."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "I had some issues with the Onboard entertainment in terms of connecting with the site. I typically do not have this problem with my airline of choice but choose you because of the proximity of my hotel to my desired departure airport as well as price."
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too crowded for this isolation time also the guy across the aisle from me (about12 inches away) took off his mask as soon as he sat down and did not put it on until he got off. The flight attendant said NOTHING. You can do better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I have to re-book my whole trip. I was being told first that I was going to make my connecting flight, and then rushed to the new gate due to terminal re-assigned, and then told that I won't make it to the connecting flight so I have to go to the re-booking counter. And then at the counter being told that I could have made it. Very confusing."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Pros: "On time flight, entertainment and food options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."
Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Pros: "Extensive selection of movies. Brand new 787 aircraft. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "Very cool touchscreen players on the back of each seat."
Cons: "The lights were on 90% of the flight...a night flight."
Pros: "Early arrival, plane not crowded"
Cons: "Onboard wifi not working so no inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Too many passengers, crazy lines and the food not great. Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Was great in terms of flight time. Flight arrive earlier than expect. Was smooth flight in terms of turbulence."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t like my seat, was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Inside the airplane was freezing the whole trip"
Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "The employee who checked me in was very helpful - found my frequent flyer number for another airline and give me a free checked bag."
Cons: "I was stranded at the airport for hours until getting a last minute flight to Palm Springs which was 2 hours further from where I was originally headed and had to have my ride drive all the way down there to pick me up, not happy!"
Pros: "Flight crew and cabin staff were good."
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't get 2 seats together until the final boarding is unsatisfactory."
Pros: "The flights were great"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work for me. When I called, I spent 40 minutes on hold before giving up. I went early to the airport to sort out the issue and the reps lied to me and then sent me to a different airline counter even though I booked through BA and was having an issue with the second leg of the flight which was indeed operated by BA. My issue wasn’t resolved until I spoke to a manager."
Pros: "YYC is a nice airport. I have found I like Canadian's more then Americans when it come to air travel."
Cons: "LAX is not a convenient airport at all."
Pros: "Entertainment, food and smooth flight."
Cons: "Did not like Early boarding with known mechanical problems, waited for almost 2 hours inside aircraft before taking off. Crew okay but could be more courteous."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. I felt lucky when they gave me a place in a plane leaving 1 hour earlier. But that flight was delayed twice because of mechanical problems: the first time we had to go back to the gate and the second time we stayed on the runway just before take off Not enough room in overhead bins. They asked people to check small suitcase or bag."
Pros: "The digital entertainment was off the chart. It kept me awake during the whole flight. A flight feels shorter when one becomes entertain instead of nodding off and on, which makes the flight feels longer than it really was."
Cons: "I am vegan. So I guess I am minority for now, but I hope some of the food in the futures also cater to those of us that don't eat any type of animal product. One only can hope!."
Pros: "S"
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
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 excellent and live tv options"
Cons: "Temperature on flight was freezing cold!"
Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "It was on time and the crew were good"
Cons: "Padlocks being cut of our luggage with no explanation!"
Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"
Cons: "I was first sent to the wrong terminal by a female flight attendant. When I arrived at the other terminal, I had already missed my initial flight, so crying back to terminal 3 another nice lady helped me get on the next flight to chicago and from their I had to take a flight to Philly. This really made me upset as I had nursing classes the next day and I would not reach philly until 8pm that night. On the flight to philly from chicago, the plane ride was decent, the crew was nice, but their was no more over head space and I had to give my carry on for them to put in the back of the plane with the rest of my baggage. The plane was small and I did not expect this flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and peofessional."
Cons: "Boarding and then 20 minutes later, deboarding, due to no crew showing up for flight! We had to wait over an hour to board again!!"
Pros: "The sweet flight attendant who helped calm me down from the turbulence as we were going over the hurricane."
Cons: "All the turbulence from flying over Hurricane Matthew. Something I will make sure I'm not flying during a storm. Scared me greatly."
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Pros: "The flight are crew were amazing though! Food was surprisingly good as well."
Cons: "The entertainment was kind of bad compared to other international flights I went on. You weren't really able to watch what you wanted and it wasn't the best experience."

United is simply a terrible airline.

Very hot.

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "I will never arrive to this airport again. It’s too difficult to go to manhattan (especially on Sunday) it’s not worthy to save a few bucks to spend more than one hour in the taxi"
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I finally got home."
Cons: "Because of the delayed flight from Munich, I missed my connection to RDU. When I arrived at the gate minutes after they closed the door, they did nothing to help. The gate agent directed me toward the United help desk, which in turn did nothing. After telling me it was not their problem because the delay was Lufthansa's fault, they finally gave me a telephone number to call Lufthansa. That number, as it happened, was incorrect."
Pros: "They gave me plenty of fluids that I asked for."
Cons: "They had a problem with the radio which almost made me late for my connecting flight. We left 1.5 hours late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Sardine can with no amenities. What value."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
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."
Cons: "Extremely small plane. No tv in headrests or on plane, Not enough room for everyone's carry on, no usb charging ports, don't offer unlimited snacks and beverages. They did not offer ANY drinks or snack on this flight which is ridiculous."
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Cons: "My flight was delayed (not due to weather) almost 4 hrs"
Pros: "The crew and service was very nice and pleasant"
Cons: "To hard to use the inflight entertainment from wifi and that it was delayed"
Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Pros: "The call center that i was forwarded to that did nothing to help at all or the agent who hung up on me while i was trying to get an explanation of why they keft me stranded in the airport."
Cons: "Kayak.com"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "Seating felt like cheap european carriers. Limited seat pockets as they try to improve legroom. Didnt let seats come back too far. so design of the cheap seating actually worked as i was not pinned in seat when jerk in frong of me put seat back."
Cons: "Aisle Narrow. People at checkin were grumpy...telling us to get back ...."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"

Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Cons: "Some of the crew, a woman this time, was too serious and never smiled. If they don't like to work with the public they should select another profession."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"

Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"

Pros: "quick easy boarding"
Cons: "Old plane. Magazines were old and missing several pages."
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time, workers were courteous, gates were easy to find."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
