Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "on time departure"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines continues to do it rite! To my surprise, while checking in my 60 lb bag of surfboards, I was only charged $25, not the already low price of $75 I am usually charged. This new discounted price enabled me to save $100 round trip on board charges. Unlike other airlines that charge $100 Per surfboard, Alaska Airlines has implemented a program that serves the sports enthusiasts. From surfers, golfers, hunters, fisherman, and so on. Our gear goes with us for a fantastic price. Also, the food is actually pretty tasty too & the flight attendants treat you well."

Cons: "What I didn't like was mostly out of the crew/airline's control. There was a cranky baby and the person seated in front of me was very fidgety which caused my tray table to move, spilling my drink. I've been on a flight where so many people get up and walk. I was on the isle so the often bumped me."
Pros: "Easy and fast check in and boarding"
Cons: "Poor seating and delayed flights ."
Pros: "The entire on line checking in process including self bag tag was easy and bag drop was efficient."

When my flight from Dallas landed at LAX a passenger in front of me began seizing, everyone just moved and I went up to help I am a NCMA I have traing in this area, the flight attendant was rude and told me i didn't know what i was doing and to sit down. So i sat down. Waiting for EMS to get there delayed deplaning which is understandable. However when I got to my gate to board to Portland, I was told that due to not being there on time they gave away my seat. She was very rude. When I began crying, pulled out my phone and asked for her name and supervisor she magically found me a seat but it wasnt the economy we paid for."
Pros: "This was our first time using Alaska Airlines and they were great! Checking in online was easy. Flight attendants and other staff were friendly and seemed to have your best interest in mind. My husband and I had a 20 hour layover in LA coming back from Costa Rica and we asked if we would have to pay another fee to recheck our bag for the second flight. They were very understanding and waived the fee since our overnight stay in LA was technically a layover and we had previously made the whole reservation for both flights at once using their company. Overall we liked our experience with Alaska and would definitely use them again!"

Pros: "Too ezpensive"
Pros: "Left on time, got to Seattle on time."

Cons: "On my return flight, the seat did not recline."
Pros: "Smiling service onboard, on-time departure"

Pros: "Really easy access to board no delays at all"
Pros: "more attention to cabin than other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing to rave about except the assistance offered by flight attendants who were very helpful."
Pros: "The staff was very professional"
Cons: "The gate gave my reserved seat away and I was forced to sit in the middle seat from DCA to LAX. I wasn't too upset because it was a large family with young children however, I wish I was told about this upfront. Furthermore, I booked my ticket weeks in advance."

Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Felt nauseated"
Pros: "Jetblue can't be beat! They are simply the best."
Cons: "It was kinda hot and humid on the flight. On Demand movies and tv were unavailable from the getgo. Then about an hour or so into the flight the Direct TV service ended as well. It was pretty frustrating since I finished the book I brought with me during the first hour of the flight."

Pros: "Everything.... staff was fabulous and accommodating but had trouble with the wifi..."
Cons: "I believe the airline should supply the headsets...."
Pros: "Smooth flying experience all around. I appreciate their "healthy" meal and snack options."
Cons: "Onboard meals are expensive, and of tiny portion, sometimes they run out of meals, so we went hungry during the flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, seats with extra space were good"
Cons: "Kathleen, a stewardess, did not bring a blanket after asking 3 times, I turned light on, no one came, we were by the door and it was freezing. Finally I went to bsck myself and she and another gal were chatting. It was early in flight, and hiding isn't helpful. Plus, she was super grumpy from start. It's a job, please do it."
Pros: "Nonstop flight always a plus. Ground crew at baggage check, etc. we're super helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed from JFK over an hour and returning flight from LAX delayed departure as well. Very inconvenient for the high fare price. Seems Jetblue has a history of poor time performance. Would probably not book with them again."
Cons: "The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead."
Cons: "Did not like that flight was delayed"
Pros: "The seats were very spacious and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "They didn't provide headphones and *charged* for a blanket and pillow on a cross-country flight. Who does that?"

Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "No complains !"
Pros: "The crew kept us well informed and were extremely calm."
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for 9 1/2 hours for a 5 hour flight. We weren't allowed to land at JFK, so we got diverted to Richmond, VA to refuel. Miserable experience."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats in my row were filthy. Not only was there food on the seats but there was crusted food on the pull down tray. When this was brought to Peter's (the steward's) attention he handed me a napkin and water to clean it myself. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't think I'll be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "I didn't like arriving at 4:00 a.m. in the morning and having to be at work in a few hours. We were told that we would receive a voucher via email. I never received anything. The delay was unacceptable."
Pros: "The flight itself was too bumpy and scary"
Pros: "It was reasonably priced. I didn't realize when booking that the reason it's so cheap is that you have to pay for every little thing, but it was only a short flight, non-stop direct, which suited my needs, so I didnt really mind. I gave the "food" 1 star because there isn't a N/A option. Free wifi on the return flight!"
Cons: "Blankets and pillows cost extra. Food and drinks cost extra."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late to arrive at the destination and there was no explanation."
Pros: "we had space and although we left late the crew was very accomodating"

Pros: "Was able to get a window seat and had eye masks and ear plugs for red eye flight"
Cons: "They charged extra for blankets and pillows on a red eye flight . Was very cold during the flight and could not sleep. My ear plugs were defective and the movies were slim pickings from the new releases."
Pros: "The staff was great..."
Cons: "It was more than 3 hours late and it was the red eye. Just made for a long ride"
Pros: "The Mint Class was wonderful. Danny and the other flight attendant were wonderful. Food and service and seat rivaled any domestic lie flat business product."
Cons: "The Direct TV didn't work and boarding was chaotic. The plane was delayed. Baggage staff was extremely slow in Ft. Lauderdale and gate staff in Ft. Lauderdale didn't seem too happy to assist. Ft. Lauderdale has always been a troubled spot for JetBlue with the staff..."
Pros: "Free snacks. Allllll about those!"
Pros: "There were no trip ups. Flight was on time. We boarded and arrived on time. JetBlue has free wifi and cable, but it was a red eye so I didn't get to enjoy much of it."
Cons: "There was an issue on board that made me wonder whether attendants are at all trained to manage situations of sexual assault. (An issue with another passenger arised and they were unprepared to deal with it). Also, the seats weren't all that comfortable but JetBlue does give you a sleep mask and ear buds for red eyes."
Cons: "Wish I could pick seats or pay for better ones when booking w kayak"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Hour late to board"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The crew was rather lazy. It was a long flight. Came through once to offer snacks and drinks then back again immediately to pick up trash when u just received your snacks. Then never offered water or additional items for rest of flight. Of 3 flight atttendants they sent one person to do the final cleanup while others stood around. Waited at gate after boarding for almost 2 hours so the catering truck could replenish the plane so u would think they could be more hospitable since our flight was not full."
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and water, roomy seats, and helpful staff!"
Cons: "5 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "Everything!! This was my second flight in two weeks going Jet Blue Mint. WOW!! I've traveled over 16,000 miles in the last few weeks and Jet Blue 's Mint was by far the BEST!! Service 5 stars, Confort 5 stars!! Food 5 Stars!!"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "Delta flight are always comfortable."
Cons: "Not having a 3 hour delay."
Pros: "confortable and good service."
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "It was a good expiriance traveling with delta!"
Pros: "Great crew serving God beverages and meals. The was a variety of Entertainment from which to choose."
Pros: "Food, crew and flight were good."
Cons: "I booked a flight in klm, and didn't read the fine print, that it was operated by Delta. On KLM one bag is included, but on delta, I had to pay $60. This wad not made clear to me when I booked."
Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."
Cons: "- staff was not very friendly. At least one of the businsss class stewards. - Food options for breakfast limited."
Cons: "seats were broken, armrest broken"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "They lost my luggage & made me miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Food and service was amazing."
Pros: "Crew members on plane were fine, but crew at JFK airport needed training in customer service skills."
Cons: "Big delay because no running water in bathrooms, which caused me to miss 2nd flight. Seating was ridiculously tight. Check in online was problematic."
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants."
Cons: "Had a seat that did not recline...not broken just one of those seats."
Cons: "The crew do not know precisely their proceedings. This cost me alot of money, effort, and time."
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "Coach seats still a little too small. Always bump the person next to me"
Pros: "Everything on time which lead to a stress free flight and travel. Great flight crew and smooth flying. Great communication from the captain. Also wasn't expecting to be fed on the LAX-NYC flight!! Nice touch made me think of how it used to be."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."
Pros: "Pleased we upgraded to comfort plus."
Cons: "It was an older 747 which didn’t have power to the Sears. The video system was also old with poor quality."
Cons: "In flight staff were rude and had poor attitudes. Very unexpected!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Cons: "My seat choice was ignored on one flight"
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "Flight was very good. We look at t.v. and watch movies to make the flight short."
Cons: "I didn't like when I call and ask about the delayed when told that they were waiting on equipment, then when we get to the airport was told that the flight was a international flight that was running late. The Lies!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."
Pros: "El vuelo a su hora el avión súper. Moderno súper súper y los precios súper bajos gracias kaya"
Cons: "Delayed as always, time it was a 2 hour delay. The worse airline I've flown on."
Pros: "FOR A BUSY AIRPORT IT WAS A FRIENDLY SERVICE DAY"
Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"
Pros: "Pretty good service. Excellent cabin service. Good snacks. Organized announcements at Gate. Constantly updating lateness of flight. The whole Delta staff did great job with very quick turnaround time when plane was at gate. Excellent Starbucks coffee! Was appreciated!"
Cons: "1hour late leaving LAX. Rough flight. Weather not withstanding the landing had people concerned. I've been on a lot of flights-that was probably the roughest/least precise landing I've ever experienced!"
Pros: "I didn't fly from LA to Indianapolis"
Pros: "Smooth, quiet"
Pros: "Got me to my destination safe and on time!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No outlets, old seats (but fine condition)"
Cons: "Sudden gate change. Seems like it was a little last minute, but the boarding team handled it pretty well."
Pros: "On the flight from LAX to MSP, one flight attendant was very nice and gave us extra cookies to make up for her rude coworkers' attitudes."
Cons: "I'm almost 6', and my boyfriend is 6'6". He has had 7 major knee surgeries, and life-threatening blood clots, which left major post-surgery vascular scarring. He gets major swelling, even with his compression sleeve. The up-charge to reserve exit row seats was over $100/person for both flights home. Luckily they were still available when boarding, and the nice desk clerk moved our seats for free. However, the rude flight attendance would not allow my boyfriend to elevate his leg and prop it anywhere, even after I explained his medical condition. Allowing the blood pooling increases his risk for clot formation, and it causes him extreme pain. I spent the majority of the flight massaging his leg, trying to push the blood and fluid back up. His ankle swelled around his compression sleeve, and finally he had to lay in the floor and put his leg up on the seat. The attendants told him "the best thing for you to do is to walk around for 10 minutes per hour." No, the best thing for him to do is elevate his leg and rest, not try to walk around a tiny, cramped plane, and elevate his stress level. Flight attendants need to be more aware and accommodating for these type situations, and exit rows need to be available for people who need them as far as size and medical needs require. It is not ethical to charge extra for handicap accommodations, neither is it ethical to charge extra for size and medical accommodations. These factors are not optional, and should not be billed as a luxury."
Pros: "It was a red eye. Geared fir sleep. Great Crew"
Pros: "Excellent from curb to curb 5minutes- curb drop off and check in w curbside skycab, one bag and one bike case! 8minutes - thru TSA! Flight comfort, food,drinks, cleanliness - excellent! The time it took to walk to baggage, my bag was in the carousel and my bike case was at the oversize location, 20ft from the carousel. I was there to compete in the XTerra World Championships, you couldn't ask for a better stress free flight and service, Thanks!"
Cons: "Hour and half delay"
Pros: "We were on time!"
Cons: "We didn't get our luggage until an hour later after our flight arrived to the destination,"
Pros: "Everything. !!"
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."
Pros: "Nothing. Cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "Mechanics issues. Plane never took off. Never made our connection. Had to get a new flight."
Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
Cons: "Flight cancelled , no communication, the flight the next day delayed two hours and we where given four different gate numbers for the flight, walked backwards and forwards trying to find the correct gate with my children."
Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."
Cons: "Everything that could go wrong went wrong with this flight"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."

Cons: "ANA: Seat was uncomfortable for a seven hour flight....Could not totally recline ANA: Food was very basic--not a business class meal"

Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Pros: "Extra legroom"

Pros: "free in flight entertainment- great flight attendants"
Cons: "seats seem really small and tight"
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Pros: "I got to my final destination safely"
Cons: "LA terminal had limited food, seating, water, or entertainment options. Flight delayed. No apologies for or explanation of delay. Jam packed. Pay for entertainment. In flight beverage service was s cup of water."

Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Fact easy boarding Helpful crew Really good food"
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked the ticket counter person who helped straighten things out. When I arrived"
Cons: "When I arrived st 3:30am I found out that the first leg my flight had changed. The ticket person convinced the person she spoke with on the phone to confirm the change and not make me call the 3rd artsy booker. Unfortunately, I lost the seats that I had paid extra money to book. Everyone wants to blame everyone else!"
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad ! No more united airlines for long flights."

Cons: "After boarding the seats were broken, there was no entertainment and the food was next to nothing"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal good taste."
Cons: "Hour delay by "catering", missed connect at LHR. (United's booking too tight also). TV screen needed "reboot", flight announcements piercingly loud. Requested gluten free meal not provided."

Cons: "I didn't like the size of the plane and the size of the Seats"
Pros: "Entertainment, problem connecting to wifi."
Cons: "Delayed Three hours because Plane wouldn't start."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "There was no food"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Cons: "Waiting in line for over 3hours to change our flight they have 2 employees for the hall plain it make us very tired. Next time they should be more prepared"
Cons: "Everything. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Cons: "The seats on the flight from LAX to ORD are built for people who are under 6' tall. You need to disclose the fact that your seats cannot accomodate a person who is 6'2" and 200 lbs. or you will need to accept medical responsibility for the damage done to a persons musculoskeketal system."
Cons: "My tv wasn't working which made it boring for a 6 hour flight and flight delayed"
Pros: "Luftansa ... never saw them. I ended up on a Unoted Airlines flight. My deat changes from window to middle seat in the middle of the plane. Will not fly United again. Personnel were noce ... but I resent the switch up in carriets."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Pros: "I havd to buy a whole new flight. from mechanical errors. it was horrible. I have no help"
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "Economy Plus seating was quite comfortable. Movie and TV selection options provided wide variety which gave me an opportunity to view several titles on my wish list."
Cons: "The menu card did not provided selections for this flight and the crew description was very broad - pasta or noodles. For example, "ravioli with marinara sauce or chow mein with vegetables" would have been more helpful."
Cons: "Bad service, delay flight, crew not smile and food being a delay flight as courtesy not even a free meal?"
Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."
