Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew was friendly and efficient. The pilot directly communicated about the flight and that was a nice touch. It was a very early flight and there were only 11 people on the plane, so lots of room."
Pros: "No problems with the airline, security was a little tight. When I received a quick flag about a change in the flight from the app, the agent I asked was very helpful and double checked form further information when she couldn't find anything at first."
Cons: "Security was really tight, it reminded me of LAX before their upgrades! :)"
Pros: "Where another airline waited till the last minute to advise me of a delay that completely stopped my travel, you had multiple availability schedules at the last moment. That airline did not even attempt to search other airlines to accommodate my need. In fact your connections were more direct!"
Cons: "The boarding areas were primitive and not sheltered for the weather."
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Pros: "Free wine!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I don't like seat in the back of the air plane."
Cons: "There was a dog sitting next to me...or should I say half on his owners seat and half on MY seat! Why??? I don't understand why pets need to be in the cabin. There was also a dog across the isle who cried the whole way off and on. Why is it necessary for pets to ride in the same cabin as their humans?? It was a very stressful trip!!"
Pros: "First the flight was on time. Second, the flight crew worked hard to provide beverages on a short flight."
Cons: "And equipment change resulted in the cancellation of my upgraded seat and the offer for a free bag check. The email that was sent from Alaska was sketchy as to what happened to my seat and loss of a free bag check was omitted."
Cons: "Canceled my flight day before departure. Rebooking was easy . Similar bookings . Then new flight delayed then missed connection . That lead me to be stuck in airport for almost 6 hours ."
Pros: "speed, efficient staff"
Cons: "the 400 bombadier was very cramped rough landings"
Pros: "The pilot and the free wine and the window seat."
Cons: "The ticket gate was marked wrong and I was running to get my seat and almost missed the flight."

Cons: "Really bad snacks, no charging plugs for short flight. No movie options for short flight."
Pros: "Electrical outlets at seat + Wifi almost made me forget the agonizing pain in my knees"
Cons: "Having the next seat jammed into my knees made the Wifi and outlet not as enjoyable"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave at 7am, ended up switching flights and did not get out until 10am and was late for a conference. Problem wasn't due to a delayed flight coming in but failure to fix something overnight. Alaska has been good in the past but screwed this one up."
Pros: "plane was on time and clean. Good service."
Cons: "I wish it were easier to find the terminal and gate number through either the Alaska website or through my smartphone apps (like Apple Wallet or email updates)."
Pros: "The flight itself was great."
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare. First time of Alaska. Can't check baby items for free like on other airlines. KTN was not entered on tickets so didn't have the pre-check I paid for. Agent asked for ID then after those were put away asked for passports so had to dig back through bag. Had to lift suitcase on scale 2 times to get to 50 pounds, then 3rd time agent finally said we could just put the items we removed on the scale instead. Attitude from agent at check-in and at the gate were miserable and snotty! Will NOT fly again!"
Pros: "I like communication. Everyone from gate agents to pilots to flight attendants were good with communication"
Cons: "Walking in rain to the steep ramp into terminal. A very nice gentleman saw I was struggling with my carryon and cane and kindly pulled my bag to the top for me."

Cons: "Seats was a little hard"
Pros: "I beats driving! Was easy and fast flight."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. No trouble whatsoever."

Cons: "plane stunk like pee"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delay taking off but prefer to err on the side of safety. It wasn't anything the crew had control of"
Pros: "There was a half hour mechanical delay, and then an atc delay of an hour that caused us to miss our connecting flight. We were rebooked for the soonest flight the next morning and told that a hotel would be provided free of charge. Upon arriving in Seattle, that was not the case. The best we were offered was food vouchers, which normally might not have bothered me as much, except that I am pregnant. Sleeping on airport benches at 6 months pregnant is ridiculous!"
Pros: "my original flight got canceled due to weather. I had heard horror stories about having to reschedule flights, but that was no my experience! In a short 5 minute phone call I was on the next safe flight out only 2 hours behind my regular schedule and they were really nice during the whole conversation!"
Pros: "How kind the staff was"
Cons: "How disorganized the whole process of rebooking our flights was. I ended up having to switch long lines and they booked me on ab 8pm GEG to SEA, 12:45pm SEA to ORD, 10:50am ORD to MSP. This is crazy. I ended up just booking myself on another flight on another airline. Why couldn't they offer alternative airlines to me in the first place?"
Pros: "Nothing stood out as better than average."
Cons: "The whole day was a disaster and it felt like the entire Alaska airlines was in a shambles. The first flight was delayed because they couldn't find a crew to get there in time. Once crew did show up, there was no sense of urgency and ground ops even seemed lethargic. Missed my connecting flight. Rebooked on a later flight which was then subsequently delayed another hour. The whole trip took twice as long as it should have."
Pros: "Boarding process, simple and easy. Great attendants."
Cons: "The movies I rented on gogo were finicky, meaning it skipped a few seconds every once in a while, and when I rewinded it still skipped the same parts. Made the movie more difficult to understand."
Cons: "Plane was delayed almost an hour..no explanation"
Cons: "The seats are too small"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy. The flight attendants were very kind. I will recommend Alaskan to my friends"
Pros: "The staff were good dealing with a wheelchair. We had rough air, so the cabin crew could not offer food or beverage. The flight is very short anyway, so it is no big deal that there was no food or entertainment t"
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats were more comfortable, again though, it's a short flight so it is fine"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."

Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "Crew is always friendly"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Nothing to like when 1. you are arriving at your destination after 24 hours plus delays. 2. you paid Comfort+ class (not cheap) and are constantly pushed back in the Main Cabin."
Cons: "Actual flights flying on time. What a mess!"
Pros: "On this short flight, the flight attendant was wonderful, accommodating special requests and being fully engaged with passengers. On time departure, early arrival, overall a nice quick flight to Duluth."
Cons: "CRJ200 planes are always a bit cramped, and having to gate check anything bigger than a small purse is an inconvenience. Hopefully the fleet will change over to the Embrair planes soon. Beware 'Basic' flyers (cheap tickets): you are not eligible to take an earlier flight even if available."
Pros: "Loved the pilot telling us a little about the flight crew and their piloting experience(Air Force) , and how he kept us abreast of flight status/timing , as well as our location at various points along the route. The crew was very very nice!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "Friendliness of attendants. Quality/quantity of snacks."
Cons: "Hip room/leg room."
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "Seats are tight, not very roomy, I'm 6' tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. The delta studio entertainment app didn't work, couldn't use the internet at all."

Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
Pros: "Great crew and prompt service. We left and arrived exactky when it said we would."
Cons: "Snacks could have been a bit better but that's not a deal breaker."
Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable. Only negative is out of your control - bad weather in DFW held up departure 5-6 hours. Much of that was on the plane, but crew kept us notified. We had to return to the gate and wait another couple of hours. Awful trip, but not your fault. What I was surprised by was no comp hotel, and the discounts were not rally good discounts."
Cons: "Most of my issues were ATC problems, not AA. The AA personnel kept us informed, etc. The one thing you can control is hotels if delayed to the point of missing all connection until the next afternoon. I understand not compi9ng BUT, when google maps shows better rates at local hotels than your "discount" program, that's sad."
Pros: "The employees were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner."
Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."
Pros: "Boarding crew in Spokane was friendly and very efficient."
Cons: "There were no snacks - they told us they “ran out” on the previous flight and hadn’t refilled yet."

Pros: "Arrived alive."

Cons: "Better customer service, better customer experience, no delays"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."
Pros: "entertaining system"
Cons: "food could be better, not bad though"
Cons: "Captain didnt I form us of turbulence . There was so much and he never said anything."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Pros: "I wanted to fly british airways because they have newer nicer more modern planes where even coach has electrical plugs. Seats are more comfortable. Imagine my surprise when my flight was changed to American Airlines on a plane that was so old the seats didn’t have inflight entertainment and they were way too small."
Cons: "Our seats wouldn't hardly go back, but noticed that a few seemed to operate properly. Tried to watch a movie (94minutes) on a 2.1 hr flight. Started it before takeoff and with all of the inflight announcements the credits didn't get finished before they shut down the system."
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Cons: "lots of branding stuff-watching any video had you go through 3 minutes of commercials. I must have watched the same commercials over 20 times."
Pros: "When I went from London to Chicago, I felt one male crew member wasn’t very kind. He wasn’t tall but healthy and serving the other side away from the main door. I felt him greeting others with a smile but with no smile to me. I thought in my heart seems like he is discriminating, I could be wrong, but I always felt he wasn’t so humble while serving to me or may be other Indians too. But he was smiling extra to rest of the passengers,"
Cons: "I didn’t like his attitude. I would request you to request the crew members to be kind to everyone. Since Iam vegtarian ..I couldn’t eat the egg that was served an hour before landing in Chicago. He could have given me the chocolate inside. He just said in haste this has egg. I told him oh I don’t eat egg, thank you. still he could have been considerate and offered me the chocolate “Toubolron” but he just went away. Later on I saw everyone eating the chocolate."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Pros: "Nice people"
Pros: "On this flight back to Arizona they arrayed mutt husband and I together, unlike on our way to Spokane. That was much better. We had more leg room this time."

Pros: "The crew was very polite and cordial throughout the entire process."
Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"
Pros: "Food, cleanliness"
Pros: "Great boarding, crew and seating space"
Cons: "Bathroom line for some reason was always long. Entertainment via wifi was just ok. Older movies only. New movies on the tiny screens that come down every 4 rows or so."
Cons: "there was screens but no movies or anything"
Pros: "On-time arrival; competent crew"
Cons: "Nothing; the flight was OK."
Pros: "Very hard landing."
Cons: "Your pretzels are terrible"
Pros: "air flight attendants were really great! As well as suitcase handle, it arrived on destination after all scales, awesome"
Cons: "space was small in economic class"
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "My business class flight"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Cons: "I am an AA member and usually fly them domestic. The seats are horribly uncomfortable for an international flight. The flight attendants woke you up for meals. There is no space between you and the seat in front of you and they didn't tell anyone to put their seat up while you were eating. It was really difficult to get comfortable. I find it easy to fall asleep on planes and I couldn't fall asleep on this one."
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"
Cons: "The only downfall of the flight was the seating. Having to pay extra for an emergency exit row to get more leg room isn't good practice."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"
Pros: "I watched a good movie."
Cons: "The plane seemed old. Food was pretty lousy. Hummus was dry, crackers were stale."
Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"
Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."
Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to wait for a crew member but we weren’t too late."
Cons: "Need addl gate capacity at sfo including non-jetway options when other better options are unavailable."
Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."
Pros: "The flight left on time as scheduled."
Cons: "Prior to boarding United announced it would be a full flight so they offered to check our bags for free. The United employee seemed put off when we let her know my wife & I wanted to check out two carry on bags. After my wife had her bag checked the United Employee looked at me & said “let me have it” while pointing at my right side that was holding my back pack & ticket. I misunderstood because I replied “I am not checking my backpack, only my suitcase.” The United employee said “no, your ticket” which caused an awkward silence of confusion & everyone surrounding us to look at me like I had said something wrong when in fact it was then United employee that was unclear with her words. I handed her my ticket & the other United employee proceeded to tag my wife’s suitcase but not mine looking at me like I was crazy for offering mine up. Out of further embarrassment & frustration I ended up carrying my suitcase on the plane. The seats on the plane felt like I was sitting against a piece of plywood. If I could give comfort zero stars I would. Terrible customer service & terrible comfort."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"
Cons: "Cannot think of a thing"
Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."
Pros: "The crew was one of most pleasurable group that I've flown with. Polite AND funny!"
Pros: "Was comfortable and attendant gave me a seat closer to exit door so I could get off the plane quicker."
Cons: "Was delayed 45 minutes and by the time we landed and taxiied I had only 10 minutes to make it to my other flight for boarding. Barely made it."
Cons: "Legroom on both flights was the least I've ever had on any plane."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the eats, the roominess of the seats even when fully occupied (3) and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff in the cabin."
Cons: "the tiny restroom, water on the floor and size of the waste paper basket."
Pros: "The price was right! For a one way ticket in the summer I can't complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"
Pros: "The app, United airlines, the whole experience."
Pros: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"
Cons: "Flight delay and itenirary changed"
Pros: "The time getting there on time or early"
Pros: "Left early...arrived early"
Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"
Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"
Pros: "Arrival was late and United held the connecting flight! Thanks United."
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ，7:30 pm to 11:45pm"
Cons: "We were delayed almost 2 hours. Sick of it every time I fly. Get it together. I missed my ride and had a 6 hour wait for a bus. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."
Pros: "You will refund for missed flights, everything was good"
Cons: "Well considering I am still in Houston, the plane left late and I was in the last row and I it took 10+ minutes to deplane, I missed my connection to Corpus Christie!!! The schedule between planes is way to tight!! I am very unhappy and too old to be running to catch my connecting flight. I will never make reservations that the airline or kayak do not consider time needed to change terminals etched"
Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"
Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."
Pros: "Nothing because they didn't allow us to board the flight because there was 20mins left til the plane departed. Also the tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Cons: "They didn't allow us tothe tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Cons: "Our seats were Infront of the emergency exit, couldn't relax. I'm 6'6" , so the incline if the back isn't comfortable and we couldn't recline. We had asked switching seats on our flight to Spokane because we were given the same seats. The airline told us seats were chosen at random and they couldn't control them so we had 4 legs of our two flights stuck in no reveling seats. I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The service was food"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "On time. Boarded smoothly. Pleasant crew. Snacks and beverage included. No cost to check bag."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "All of this trip went well, all on time, great service, no worries!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"
Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."
Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."
Pros: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."
Pros: "I will never fly with united again"
Cons: "One plane got delayed so I missed the other plane and have a 12-hour layover"
Pros: "In flight service was nice. Attendants on plane tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Traveled with small children, could not get seats together. Made the journey rough."
Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendant on this flight was very personable."
