Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Cons: "Slowest boarding process of my 3 Alaska flights today"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"

Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"
Pros: "It was on time and 30 minutes early to our destination!"
Pros: "Comfort,service , and plane all great !"
Pros: "Left early, arrived early"
Cons: "Tell me about the entertainment software before we get to the airport."
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Flight attendants, mai tai."
Cons: "Late plane"
Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Cons: "Bag full of very expensive ski stuff lost in Vancouver somewhere---hoping I get it back!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and easy app to handle"
Cons: "Kiosks couldn't read any of my travel documents. Even thought I checked in and about my luggage 24 hours in advance I had to form the line and check in for help."
Pros: "time of flight"
Cons: "The plane was tiny. Everyone had to check standard carry-on luggage"
Pros: "Bad attitude, no info, then annoyed when we asked them anything. All the passengers kept cool and calm. Staff was terrible."
Pros: "efficient boarding"
Cons: "not readily providing pens to fill out declaration forms. felt pressure to ask someone else for a pen to fill out form. It is airline requirement so it shouldn't be passenger's responsibility to find a pen. if a problem for airlines then they should takecare of the requirement at gate when there is time and they could easily provide the pens."
Pros: "The flight was quick and we arrived early. I had more seat room on this flight than on intercontinental planes. Very smooth landing, one of the best."
Cons: "No beverage service of any kind--trip was too quick!"
Pros: "arrived earlier"
Pros: "Friendly service. Someone answers the phone. People available in the airport to talk to. Great flight attendants, frequently checking on you. Love the tablets for movies etc to pass the time."
Cons: "Seat space larger than most, but still tight."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The whole boarding process by the time my group was boarded there was no overhead bin space for either my wife's or mine one carry on piece. The flight amendments did nothing to try and help me find room for any of them even though there were coats backpacks and purses filling the overhead bins. So we had to ride with both our carryon jammed under our seats and no legroom for 5 plus hours. Miserable never again!"
Pros: "Good flight, attendants were great! I would definitely fly Alaska Airlines again! :)"
Pros: "Our ticket handler at Alaska Airlines ( Sep 21- SMF Airport) was the most helpful and patient person we have ever encountered! The tickets we had purchased through Kayak were charged but not booked. Juan did everything in his power to get us on that flight. And when the kayak company failed to book in time Juan got us on the next available flight, being to sure to find us the best price and a direct flight, versus the one we had booked earlier. Over all Alaska Airlines will be the standard my future experiences will be based off of if I am unable to travel through them"
Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"
Pros: "It was fast and friendly. They took a lot of guesswork out and made us feel safe."

Pros: "Boarding was good"

Cons: "Had to pay for food and entertainment."
Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."
Pros: "Every single person I encountered on this flight was so friendly, offered assistance, and had a smile. Even the pilot thanked us (in person not just overhead on the speakers) for flying with them! It was one of my most enjoy flights. 3 rounds of beverage service!"
Pros: "Too cold!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."
Pros: "noting they suck"
Cons: "they where late taking off because one of there stewardess was late one hour ....HORRIBLE SERVICE....."
Pros: "It was pretty good. This was my first Alaska Airlines flight. Seattle to Maui was better than Newark to Seattle. First flight was uncomfortable. Seat did not recline. Didn't try the food. I took Virgin to Newark from Maui, and Alaska on return. I had high expectations from Virgin, but I liked Alaska better."
Pros: "The flight attendants were light hearted, engaging, and very funny"
Cons: "Everything was good. Had the extra legroom which made it very comfortable on the long flight"
Pros: "The crew and boarding process were great! I hope that the crew is paid a decent wage and that not too much of the profit is going into the pockets of the owners/CEO/share holders."
Cons: "Very small space, and I am a fairly small person; no screens; poor selection of food; pocket on back of chair in front of seat was too small and netting too loose to practically use for anything."
Cons: "Had to purchase second ticket because my wife and I couldn't get thru TSA. Name on boarding pass didnt match my wife's licence. Married vs maiden name. Alaska could change boarding pass. Passed the buck to kayak. Spent 1 hour on phone and was unable to do anything. Had to buy a separate ticket, last minute, for my wife and barely made the flight."
Pros: "Getting off the Plane."
Cons: "There were not enough Breakfast meals, and I could not eat anything that WAS available... You should have At Least enough of the Daily meal, or whatever you call it, for all the passengers... especially at Breakfast.... everybody wants Breakfast. AND... maybe try not to sit single adults in the middle of 3 screaming toddlers. I hate kids. and that was REALLY ANNOYING. - and I was not allowed to move due to the Load Weight so... It pretty much all sucked. and then - & I know this is out of your hands - but this was all n top of bad turbulance... Worst Flight I hve ever been on, and I am a Travel agent, and practically grew up on Airplanes."
Pros: "I fly this route regularly and Alaska is my first choice - the service is good, and everyone gets a celebratory drink prior to landing in the Islands. I will often upgrade to 1st class, and that is so worth it. I arrive at my destination after 5 hours feeling relaxed and able to jump right into the new environment."
Cons: "In 1st class - no complaints whatsoever. In coach - the usual: seats small, cramped, packed in with hundreds of other human beings, just waiting for it to be over. What a difference between the two!"
Pros: "Only good thing was the in flight services. The flight attendant was very busy making sure we had drinks or food available"
Cons: "Tight fit in the cabin area, limited restrooms onboard"
Pros: "There was one nice customer service agent that tried to help me"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to flat tire Missed all connections. Arrival 5 hours late. Not ideal after having major surgery"
Pros: "The answers were defaulted with a star selection and I could not change it. Our air Canada flight for Vancouver to Maui was just OK. It was an Air Canada Jazz flight. Very uncomfortable seats (and we were in business class). The flight was uneventful and the service was great. I would change my answers above to 1 star for comfort; zero stars for entertainment. The movies were old and it was very hard to hear the shows with the ear buds they provided."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Nothing much to complain about. For the section we were in, economy, the seats were pretty comfortable. Good space in front. Decent pitch. IFE was excellent. Staff were friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be there. Good mix of younger and older staff. Food wasn’t bad. Cabin crew kept passengers up to date. Really can’t ask for anything more."
Cons: "Well. Maybe one small thing. Airflow from vents above were a bit weak. I think the newer planes are like that as our next leg on a smaller A319 had quite the powerful vents."
Cons: "There was no complimentary food: not even snacks. Nice to have some juice, tea etc, though"
Pros: "Food was great for airplane food, there was bibimbap, jjajjangmyun and egg sandwich"
Cons: "Didn’t like being in a small seat for 10+ hours. Plane seemed more cramped than I remember"
Pros: "they had top movies, which helped me get through. The staff were friendly enough to not be rude and to do what they were suppose to on the flight. the food was good for the first meal, real chicken. second meal only had pork so luckily I had bought a burger in the airport before boarding since I do not eat pork. All my layover flights were on time with on time boarding/ departure which i Highly appreciated."
Cons: "I did not understand why they would use the same seat design they used for a 2-5 hour flight for a 11Hour Flight!! I had never experienced being that uncomfortable in my seat. I am used to flying 13hours straight but with comfortable and Padded! seats with room to move. the seats were not padded and there was little to no space to put your legs in a comfortable position. My back and neck were killing me in the last 2 hours."
Cons: "Steward. & meals"
Pros: "On time flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No food unless you bought it, minimal service."
Pros: "Competent stewards/stewardesses"
Cons: "No meal?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My wife and I were seated in different rows."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Pros: "The food was great, service was excellent, and entertainment selection was awesome."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "Free food and beverages"
Cons: "No snacks between meals"
Pros: "Three meal provided. Polite crew. Good customer service. More limited weight for the carry on. Generous for the excess size or weigh the baggage."
Cons: "Not enough Asian movie since this fight is to Hong Kong. Seat and space is not big enough."
Cons: "One of the worst overall flight experiences. Flight attendants ignored assistance light, no entertainment ( only option was paying for an ipad), and blankets had to be paid for!!. Flight was so booked that we were late taking off. Poor flight attendants were obviously understaffed. Will avoid this airline when possible"
Cons: "check in staff was unable to though tag me luggage onto an onward Emirates flight from Toronto. Not sure if this was a lack of knowledge or limitations of the check in system. Seat options provided at the time showed only middle seats as available all other sets were showing booked or required pay-up premiums...Air Canada's website had a whole host of end seats available...."
Pros: "On time, smooth, nice crew."
Cons: "I don't like the fakt you have to pay for food on not so short flight( over 5 hours). Addicionaly, pay machines are apparently old fashion because they only take Visa. I can pay with my Master Card anywhere else in the world but Air Canada."
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "Good boarding time, though the passengers were disorganized. It's not air Canada's fault. Even in the snow, we made good time to the destination."
Cons: "There was not enough room for many people's carry on items and staff did not help find space. Most of the passengers would not put their small bags under the seats so passengers with big bags had no choice but to give up foot space completely. Carry on limits should be better enforced."
Pros: "The seats were unbelievably squishy. And the crew was quite rough."
Pros: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Cons: "We sat at the back with no windows and there was no entertainment except for an app available through wifi on our phones."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. I saw some passenger asked a sort of unreasonable request (she wanted to switch chicken to beef after she already had several bites), but our flight attendant dealt with her very well."
Cons: "Air Canada: We didn't have a TV screen. We are suggested to use our cell or tablet to use apps. but I only had cell phone. Selection of movie is so poor. I wanted to watch Japanese movies, as I always catch Japanese movie on the way to there, but the selection of movies was mainly kids movie and not targeted to adults."
Cons: "My tv screen froze and when a meal was served I let the flight attendant know. She said they would reset it. An hour later it hadn't been reset. I turned on my call light. No one ever came. A male flight attendant proceeded to chat with a woman about hockey for a half hour or more and ignored my light. He went away for a bit and came back and chatted some more. For the last 3 plus hours of the flight my screen didn't work."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. Food was not bad. I could never get a coffee, because they are not allowed to serve hot drinks when the seatbelt sign is on, which it was for minor turbulence during both the dinner and snack service. Would have been nice if they came around again after the turbulence ended for those who wanted hot drinks, but this is just a minor complaint."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and pleasant . The crew is friendly and acoomodating. the fligt back to Edmonton was on time. Boarding was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Flight to Vancouver was delayed for half an hour. It's a good thing I didn't have a connecting flight to catch."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."
Cons: "When did Air Canada stop providing meals on international flights? It was my first time flying in/out of Newark on Air Canada and was surprised I had to purchase food on an international flight. Chicken noodle soup in a cup was $3, was about the only thing that looked reasonable on the menu."
Pros: "good flight, no issues. Enthusiastic Air Canada rouge staff."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours due to maintenance issues"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome, got to see Spectre"
Cons: "Plane was shaking a lot due to turbulence half an hour before the arriving It caused nausea for me, my SO, and many customers. I personally thought that it was worse than a roller coaster."
Pros: "Entertainment was decent, and one of the crew members was very kind. The others seemed overworked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours for maintenance, which was better than flying with a maintenance problem. Would have appreciated better information/communication about the delay."
Cons: "Not enough workers. Flight crews so stressed that they ignored passengers."
Pros: "Only liked the salads, buns, deserts and drinks."
Cons: "The main courses have too much unusual sauce on the rice and/chicken."
Pros: "The flight was direct and the food service was good and spaced at timely intervals. The crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Lengthy flights are tiring."
Cons: "Long check in line Having to pay for each piece of luggage Flight delayed 3 hrs Having to buy food Old flight attendant who should be retired Air Canada resembles a LCC. I would avoid having to fly AirCanada within North America if I can with this awful service."
Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."
Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."
Pros: "The crew members were fabulous."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive when I did. I did not see my personal belongings for three days. When the second leg of my journey was cancelled, I was book on a flight with a short connection. Therefore, my luggage remained in Canada while I went on to Japan."
Pros: "It was a good enough flight. However, for a 6 hour flight, it would have been nice if food or entertainment were offer."
Pros: "Exit seat. Leg room"
Cons: "Breakfast too small. Plane leaked on me during take off and landing. 3 hour delay on plane before take off. Stewardesses ignored people looking for water."
Pros: "Each seat had it's own entertainment station. Where you could watch movies, play games, and listen to music. We received two in flight meals. While they were small, they were still enough."
Cons: "We had a delay to leave. Only an hour so it wasn't so bad. We also had a small delay when it was getting close to landing time. We did two circles to delay before we got there."
Cons: "there were no tvs and the selection of videos we could watch on our own devices sucked"
Cons: "Departure was late causing one member of group to miss a connecting flight. However, upon arrival a new boarding pass for the next flight was already waiting."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Pros: "It landed."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganized. The seats are ridiculously small n close. The cabin was uncomfortably hot. The seats literally reclined 1 inch, no joke. No food on a 6 hour flight. The tv screens where 20 years old n the size of an iPhone plus. The flight just sucked and United has taken a huge dive in my opinion of them."
Pros: "I LIKED THE WAY I WAS TREATED BY PERSONNEL AT FLIGHT DEPARTURE ZONES ESPECIALLY IN VANCOUVER AND CHICAGO. WHEN BOARDING THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE POLITE AND HELPFUL IN GETTING MY CARRY ON SUITCASE PROPERLY STOWED."
Cons: "THE OPTION TO WATCH TV WAS NOT USED AS I PREFER READING AND CHATTING WITH FELLOW PASSENGERS AND I DID BOTH!"
Pros: "the price of the flight"
Cons: "have to pay for movies, uncomfortable seats for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the staff was polite."
Cons: "The food that was supplied was meager!. When you fly half way across the United States and get 2 cups of a soft drink, no peanuts or chips; that is terrible."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Cons: "Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable and felt like a very old mattress in desespertly need of replacement"
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."
Pros: "It had been years since we last flew UNITED. Honestly, we were a bit apprehensive after learning of friends' negative experiences but we moved forward with our plan. The flight was smooth, and ahead of schedule and the crew was totally on top of their game. SPOT ON!"
Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "awful handling of the flight delay with lack of info and updates. We were told we were boarding in twenty minutes for four hours."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "We booked with Air Canada but it was actually United. The flight was delayed five hours. This always happens with United and they seldom provide explanations or updates."
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight to PHX the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Another normal flight."
Cons: "Check in troubles. Couldn't check in online. Agents had some trouble locating our reservations. Security was a lengthy process. Big brother type operation going through customs."
Pros: "Nice boarding and effective attentive crew."
Cons: "Well it was over 5 hours and we got a miniature bag of spicy mixed stuff."
Pros: "Great flight with no issues or any problems. Flight on time, luggage transfer was fine, crew pleasant and helpful. Smooth sailing."
Cons: "We don't take advantage of entertainment on board."
Cons: "Constant 5 - 30 minute email updates stating flight delay. The delayed started at 30 minutes and ended in being 3 hours. The stated reason changed just as frequently."
Pros: "Crew and services"
Cons: "in flight movies were not free while most other airlines offer passenger free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "Seated me in back. Made me board last. Had to walk all the way back up to the front of the plane to put my bag in the rack. 180 people with only 2 restrooms in the back. Much of the time there were people standing in line right over me waiting. Lots of bumping and grinding with my fellow passengers."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"
Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."
Pros: "Not much to like about United these days, just basic cattle car service and nickel and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Didn't fly this leg on United, but rather on Air Canada."
Pros: "Gate Crew in YVR was very courteous"
Cons: "Deadheading pilots throwing large carry on in front rows but sitting in back rows. Really guys?"
Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"
Cons: "I was in the very back seat, and the lady in front of me had her seat leaned back the entire time. I had no room, and was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
Pros: "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew, especially the African American stewardess is to be commended for her (their) responsiveness. The flight was pleasant, however I could not give an excellent rating. To give an excellent rating would meant his flight or airline stood out above all others."
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "flight crew could give a sh!t. Had to connect and came in late, made no assistance to get connecting passengers off first. Tv option sucks. Have to pay to watch anything. Couldn't even watch plane progress. Pay for that too. Only thing on is a cooking show. And yes you have to pay for food. Interesting. Food is decent though. That was a plus. All but one of the crew seemed pissed about being there. I know passengers suck. At least the guy that looked like Tim meadows from snl was nice. A 5 hour flight and they plane has no wifi (I get it) but also no charging ports??? Just gives the feeling of being held hostage for 5 hours and the only savior is your Visa. I'd hate to see how parents with kids handle it."
Cons: "Very tight seating, lack of wifi entertainment on a 4 hour flight is despicable"
Pros: "poor airline with bad time and no accomodation"
Cons: "Our flight arrived 20m late, as did my wife on the same flight three nights earlier."
Cons: "for this 6hrs flt I feel for the price of the flt you need more variety of foods served without a cost."
Pros: "He's a great pilot."
Cons: "That flight was so very scary.My name is Addison ( Parinaz ) Barati."
Pros: "The flight was an hour late due to bad weather delaying the plane's arrival. The great news is the boarding process was quick and efficient. Once seated the pilot announced that the weather delaying the arrival would help 'push' us for our flight. Only a half hour late after an hour delay departing."
Pros: "UA is always reliable and professional with both transport and with digital and telephone passenger communications; but not doing well with the customer experience with cabin crew and airport HR."
Cons: "Jaded airport and cabin crew: clearly not loving their jobs. There's a dramatic difference in flight crews in other countries; consistently, UA crews seem to be neither appreciating, nor loving their jobs compared to other airlines and markets."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, but when you're in Premier Global whatever you go on first, so that doesn't mean much. The stewardess was nice enough, but didn't have much to offer from United."
Cons: "This was a three hour flight. I would have expected a bit more class in business class for three hours. Instead, there was wine in plastic bottles, and a basket of wrapped snacks. Yahoo."
