Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I just really like the customer experience with Alaska. I dislike flying, but Alaska makes things as painless as possible."
Cons: "I don't think anything could've been better, it's not possible to be comfortable in coach, but we all already know that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment choices."
Pros: "They have been on time for most flights"
Cons: "They never have enough room for my carry on even though I pack light. Also I always board in group D no matter if I have an aisle seat in the back or a window in the front."
Pros: "Staff was nice - they did what they could"
Cons: "Six hour delay. Unreal."
Cons: "New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
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"
Pros: "Plane was nice, crew was fine. Slept most of the time, so not much to say."
Cons: "They screwed up my luggage causing me to miss my flight and wait 6 hours for the next one."
Pros: "Free movies, clean seats, friendly staff"
Pros: "Short and smooth"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines has been an excellent airline for many years. Being a Seattle native I have had a chance to use Alaska Airlines many times. All of the staff are friendly, professional and patient. The planes are modern and the flight crews the best."
Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."

Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "On time."

Cons: "I DID NOT LIKE THAT MY SUITCASE WENT TO OAKLAND INSTEAD OF JFK!!!"
Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."
Cons: "No pillow or blanket on overnight flight. $40 for Internet is absurd."
Pros: "Too cold!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."
Pros: "Friendly crew. On time flights"
Cons: "Check bag fee"
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"

Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Cons: "Sitting as they had to fix a broken plane. Missing my connecting flight and getting in late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours. Pilot said we were about to take off, sat in plane for another hour before we even moved."
Pros: "Flight/seat, legroom uncomfortable. Idiot sitting next to me also had music loud and didn't turn it down when I asked. This was during taxing to take off. I was going to bring it to the attention of the crew after seatbelt sign was turned off, but once the flight was in the air, the noise of the plane/flight was so deafening that I could hear the music anymore, and neither would the crew if I had bought it to their attention."
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Being delayed 3 hrs so not getting my baby to bed until 10pm"
Pros: "Son got to see the cockpit after the flight."
Cons: "Flight did not leave on time. Weather conditions were not a factor."

Pros: "That the flight ran on time"
Cons: "Everything is an added charge. No food option. No TVs. No friendliness. We were consistently inconvenienced as the flight attendant was seated next to us and interrupted us consistently with no apologies."
Pros: "Because of our delayed flight, which made us miss our flight departure at our layover location, we were upgraded to Comfort+. I'm happy that it was recognized that we were going to be delayed 2 hours to our destination, and were given a more comfortable flight because of it."
Cons: "Delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight. Delta was quick to fix the issue and upgraded our seating to Comfort+. Time lost for vacation was my only issue."
Pros: "Cockpit kept us informed regarding minor maintenance delay."
Cons: "Was charged twice for one beverage. Also a receipt was not offered so this makes me think the flight attendant knew about the mistake but didn't want to address the error."

Cons: "LGA DELAYS AS USUAL."
Pros: "Great staff! Friendly and kind."
Pros: "The plane looks nice from the outside."

Cons: "For some reason I could not pick a seat until I got to airport. Very stressful."
Pros: "Staff all was good."
Pros: "First On and First Off"
Cons: "The passenger in front of me reclined for the entire airborne portion of the flight. I had her seat back in my chest all evening. The darkened cabin was pitch black. Disappearing flight attendant. Broken rear bathroom. Dirty Plane"
Pros: "LaGuardia is terrible. We sat on the ground at the gate for 35 minutes after boarding because (according to captain) the ground control was not allowing plans to move. then there was a 30 minute delay for take off because of the traffic jam. If LaGuardia can't handle the traffic you should direct your clients elsewhere."

Cons: "There was a three hour delay for my flight because of equipment issues and then the delayed Delta flight I got on standby for (as number two) was oversold. Felt like Delta was a little disorganized with this aspect."
Cons: "We delplaned out on the tarmac and we're bussed to the terminal. Plane boarded very late with no explanation. Plane from n.y. to GSP was delayed multiple times. Again we deplaned on the ground and had to walk up a lot of stairs (difficult for a couple of elderly people). I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Booked my flight 2 weeks in advance, purchased travel insurance in case of emergency. A family member, the person I shared custody of a child with died of liver cancer, and Delta and the insurance company refused to honor my request for refund or reschedule."
Cons: "Delta used a word "delayed" for canceling a flight. This is deceiving! Not to mention an out an hour delay and the reasons could have been easily prevented; maintenances."

Pros: "Crew are always the best on WJ:) All smiles, real people, love it :)"
Cons: "On board entertainment not working :("
Cons: "I had safety concerns on the flight from YVR to Toronto because seated in the exit row were two individuals who were brought to the gate assisted on a cart and had to wait for assistance to get on and off the flight. They had very poor ambulation which made me nervous as these people have agreed, by sitting in the exit row, that they are able and willing to help in the case of an emergency evacuation. This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"

Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "No food, flight attendants were okay but not especially friendly"
Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."
Cons: "Aside from our flight being cancelled, they lost our car seat. Though our baby car seat got replaced, it was still a hassle to wait an hour before anything was done. The only reimbursement we got was 30 dollars worth to spend for food and drinks at the airport."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, entertaining stewardess, on time arrival and departure, good service."
Pros: "What is there to like when your flight causes you to miss the last train home in the middle of the night. Movies were decent."
Cons: "Not only were you late, you didn't even apologize. Your delay forced me to take a cab, which is more than $40 more than a train ticket. Moreover, the crew was just unfriendly. starting from responding to questions with eye rolling and sour face and ending with not even responding when I say thank you when leave the aircraft. Little things that contributed to just poor experience overall."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with enough leg room. Crew was fantastic!! They made it a very entertaining and enjoyable experience, especially the host."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work at all for me. I believe it was also not working for everyone else. The food was also not that great. Portions were tiny, taste was ok, but definitely leaves something to be desired."
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyone very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"
Cons: "Service in the plus was the worst ever. Extremely slow and we were half through the flight until someone finally came to collect garbage. The flight crew manager sat down most of the flight doing nothing at all. Good at the announcement part but nothing the rest."
Pros: "The male flight attendant on our travel from Vancouver to SFO on 9/4/16 at 7:35pm was hilarious, outgoing and thoroughly entertaining. He brought smiles to many faces and laughter is always appreciated! Great job! As the flight was delayed he also help to lift everyone's spirits."
Pros: "on time friendly comfortable"
Pros: "I ended up being at YV a lot earlier than originally planned, and was able to switch to an earlier flight for less than $80, which was a lot nicer than having to buy a while new ticket for over $300, which would have been my other option."
Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is very pleasant"
Cons: "Where to start? Uncomfortable seats, one snack service, late boarding, late landing"
Pros: "Crew was great and very attentive. Seats surprisingly comfortable for economy."
Cons: "Never could connect to their Wifi. Not available for some reason. They rent you a tablet with entertainment, but choices are pretty limited for a 9.5 hour flight."
Pros: "usual excellent/good service"
Cons: "no food served"
Pros: "I liked the free entertainment app"
Cons: "I didn't like the delay but that seemed unavoidable"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not only polite and courteous (as expected), but were funny, as well. Great service!"
Pros: "The boarding gate person from Westjet was excellent in the way he dealt with my missed flight..........kudos to him"
Cons: "The security staff were not prepared to deal with the sudden increase in volume of passengers. Since there were around 300 people ahead of me I knew I was probably not going to make my flight. I felt as though I wanted to ask everyone there if they minded me going to the front of the line as I was probably going to miss the flight, but felt too intimidated. Of course my onboard bag was flagged for further inspection so when I asked the security agent that was being absolutely riduculas with the inspectioin of the mans belongings ahead of me if she could take a look at mine as I was probably going to miss my flight she just gave me this evil look and said im already looking at this mans things. (she didnt need to state the obvious but maybe a little common sense and tact in helping to resolve customers problems would go a lot further than projecting her power trip. Not impressed at all."
Pros: "Plane change last minute causing ~2 hr delay No voucher or apologies offered for that Baggages took more than one hour to arrive .. Total delay more than 3 hours for a flight that till last minute was supposed to be on time ... Missed my ride in Toronto ... Crew unfriendly"
Pros: "The service was at the level that I was expecting. And there was the usual casual, yet professional upbeat vibe that the crew exhibited."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."

Pros: "Aeromexico stole my money and never let me board a flight. My initial flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after a 3 hour delay in the airport. At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"
Pros: "I like the service on my way back home. The movies were up to date."
Cons: "On my way to mexico wasn't as pleasant because i wasn't served anything to drink. The flight attendant asked me but then walked away and never returned."
Pros: "Vegan vegetarian food option. Ability to pay extra for more legroom in coach."
Cons: "After the announcement at the gate to prepare to board, we went to wait on line (Group 2). However boarding did not begin until more than 45 minutes later. I did not appreciate standing in line for that long. There were no announcements from the gate staff about the delay. This seemed disrespectful to the many people waiting on line."
Cons: "I'm stuck in this huge airport because the connection time between Mexico City and my next flight to Leon was vastly underestimated. In Vancouver I was assured that one and a half hours would be sufficient but when I saw the line through immigration I realized what a joke that was. That process alone took well over two hours, followed by another hour to pick up my bag, find the correct spot to drop it off again and then re-enter the boarding area. Meanwhile, the shuttle I arranged to pick me up in Leon have one and gone. So, here I sit, exhausted, frustrated and weary, waiting for the next flight, and not knowing how I will get to my destination in the dark hours of the night. I could do with back rub and a shoulder to cry on."
Cons: "I had purchased a ticket to fly from Puerto Escondido to Mexico City on Thursday, November 24. When I arrived at the airport, I came to an airport that was "shutdown". According to a few people I spoke to, it was because of a protest. I was not emailed or notified that I was wasting my time and money trying getting to an airport that wasn't flying out any planes that day. I was very distraught and disappointed because I am a foreigner and there was no representative front the airport or airline that this was happening and what's are the next steps I should take to get on the next plane back to United States. I spent hours and hours calling Aeromar about rebooking my flight for tomorrow so I can get out of this city. It was a nightmare on the phone because it was like the employees were trained not to help. I was told it wasn't their fault, and I need to call aero Mexico to get this straightened out. Not one employee from the many I spoke to consistently throughout the day tried to rebook my flight. They wanted me to pay for another flight which is absolutely ridiculous. I missed my flight because of some protest, something not in my control, and i kept being told too bad. I did not get offfere one solution by your staff. I was left to figure what I was going to do by myself. I didn't leave Puerto Escondido until 24 hours after I was suppose to and it was not by the help of your staff. Because of this, I will highly consider not buying tickets from this airline of their is any other option because it was an awful experience. One of He aero Mexico employees told me to stop acting childish because I was upset about missing my flight for reasons i didn't control. The customer service for aero Mexico was worse then aeromar. They kept blaming aero mar and kept saying they need to figure everything out, yet these two airline work together. Aero Mexico is the one that helps get the flight to other smaller cities. All around I had a miserable day and not one person I called from aero Mexico, like aero mar helped me or offered a solution."
Cons: "Food was bland and 1st class was similar to a domestic flight to Fort Lauderdale from NYC"
Cons: "Seats felt very small"
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable. They provided free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was fine and our luggage went straight Through to New York."
Pros: "flight on time, service onboard, flight price"
Pros: "Aeromexico is the worst airline ever!!! I will never fly with this airline ever again! They made me pay another flight to get back home because of a mistake from one of their staff!! They are so incompetent and they take advantage of the fact that we have to go home..... so disappointed!!"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Curtious."
Cons: "No pillows and blankets provided on flight. Flight was extremely cold. No option to book seats upon booking flight."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was outstanding. Spacious, nice temperature, and good movie selections."
Cons: "The boarding process wasn't the greatest. They only had 2 or 3 kiosks available for bag check-ins but they had 3 international flights all around the same time. The line was ridiculous."
Pros: "Great flight, comfortable"
Pros: "I enjoyed that my kids had a great movie selection and food."
Cons: "I absolutely found it ridiculous how they board the plane. They did it both times coming and going. They didn't call anyone by zone they just allowed anyone to board at any time so I was in row 9 and people in row 20 boarded before me. What sense did that make."
Pros: "the only good service is the way the crew treats you"
Cons: "All the flights in on the round trip were delay. on the first flight going to my destination, the airline switch gates twice. the seat on the plane were uncomfortable. had to get back massage once i got home. on my way back to new york. A 80 minute layover in mexico city turn into a 230 min layover."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed but we got to our destination early. Lots of turbulance but the pilot flew in such a way that you barely felt it."
Cons: "Took 2 hours for the bags from our plane to get to the belt. Landed at 10:30pm and didnt get our luggage until about 12:45. There was 2 planes that landed right after us and all their baggage was on the belt within 10 minute!"
Cons: "We were stuck for appx 2 hours on the tarmac before deplaning. Then the baggage took another 2 hours to start unloading after our flight waited with no notice as to what was happening with our belongings."
Pros: "Aeromexico sucks"
Cons: "Flight information for our connecting flight at Mexico City was ridiculous. Almost missed flight to NYC due to no display of: departure time, which section of Terminal 2 to be in, gate number displayed on departure screen. We were also mis-directed by Aeromexico employees MULTIPLE TIMES WE ASKED that we were in the "right place" when our actual flight was in a DIFFERENT section of the terminal. NO INFORMATION about gate # was displayed in the section we were in. HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN WE WERE IN THE SAME TERMINAL?!!!! No markings noting which area (M? S?) in the terminal. Flight crew not very friendly. Very brusque manners."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good service, convenient schedule, personal entertainment available"
Cons: "A broader selection of new movies releases would be great"
Pros: "Great service from Aeromexico staff, & good food Tech friendly (charging station for phone/tablet) tvs. Comfy Seats"
Cons: "The only complaint I have about Aeromexico is the overlay. The time you have to spend waiting for your connection flight is a little to much. Otherwise my trip was great"
Pros: "I liked it because the fly was on time"
Cons: "The part I didn't like was that my fly had a connection in Monterrey Mex. and I had to wait for about 11 hrs on my fly from Monterrey to my destination ( Mexico City)"
Pros: "Overall the service was nice. It's a shame that the negative had to detract so severely from what was an otherwise nice trip."
Cons: "I'd been warned that Aeromexico is notorious for baggage weight overages. When returning to JFK from Mexico City, I was lucky with my checked bag, but when boarding the flight, an employee had me put my carry-on, my purse, the heavy wool coat I had removed during security, along with a 1.5L bottle of water and other items I'd purchased in the terminal, on a scale, then declared my carry-ons were 4 kilos over the airline's allowance. I then had to head down the terminal to a customer service desk to pay ~$60USD so I'd be allowed to board and not miss my flight. I was the last person on-board. They didn't do this at JFK on my 1st leg of the trip, as I suspect they know they'd never get away with this in the States. I spoke to employees aboard the flight, then at JFK upon arrival, and also on the phone. No luck yet regarding a refund for highway robbery."
Cons: "The JFK airport has no connection between terminal 1 where the domestic flight arrives with terminal 4 where the international flight zone is. I had to take a train from terminal 1 to 3 and then go outside the airport, walk on the street for 3 blocks and get into the airport again. Once inside terminal 4 nobody could help us (we were 20 people doing the same connection) and we went from one person to other asking what to do next and nobody knew. We were so afraid of losing our flight. Finally one police person helped us and we had to pass check point again when we had to take our shoes and be scanned again. Then we had to run because the plane was leaving. This was the worst traveling experience in my whole life. I tweet about it and I had no response."
Pros: "Quiet engines and tinted controlled windows"
Pros: "Clean and modern cabin. There seemed to be more leg room than on other aircraft, maybe due to the fact that the seats were not as bulky. Flight crew very nice and professional. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not check in online or at the check in kiosk at the airport terminal. My family and I travel with carry on luggage only, but we still had to wait on a long check in line to get boarding passes even though we were not checking any luggage."
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, no compensation, check-in was horrible."
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "Crew very quick and efficient in service"
Cons: "Over crowding, boarding is a jungle,"
Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."
Pros: "Leave and arrive on time"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"
Cons: "90 minutes sitting on the cramped plane after boarding because of a maintenance issue."
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Was asked to keep moving to another check in line. By the time we got to an open kiosk it was too late and the machine said we could no longer check our bags! Just Awful"
Pros: "Ecerything from the boarding to the seating assignment"
Cons: "Just have to be organize as they do the boarding process"
Pros: "One of the smoothest flights and landings ever."
Cons: "Each seat doesn't have its own screen. Plane feels older than JetBlue by a lot. First checked bag is not free like JetBlue. WiFi is another additional charge. Overall cost was significantly higher than JetBlue for less value."
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Pros: "The flight crew had a sense of humor"
Cons: "That they bearded you like cattle in Cahrlotte"
Cons: "Aircarft could of had mor a/c"
Pros: "the plane was great"
Cons: "the flight was delayed one hour"
Pros: "The flight was delayed. I did make my connection"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, pilot kept us informed."
Cons: "We were delayed upon landing but I realize the circumstances were beyond the crews control so no point fretting. Still disappointing nonetheless."
Cons: "No entertainment, screaming children and no food"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Seat assigned"
Cons: "Barely made my flight because my connection was late and I got to the plane right as they were about to give up my seat I was seated next to an obese gentlemen whose body was hanging into my seat and I had to spend 3 hours completely uncomfortable because the plane was completely full. Worst plane ride ever"
Pros: "The pilot acknowledged we had to wait an extra 25 min which he made up by stepping on it .... Or giving it more juice I guess . The good thing is even though we boarded late we arrived on time but no gates where available."
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarded 3 timres and flight delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful"
Cons: "They switched gate 15 mins before boarding and then delayed boarding by 30 minutes. Also were delayed in getting off plane."
Pros: "Offered food."
Cons: "Communication from kayak/American Airlines was delayed, inaccurate and slow about the massive delay in the flight. Spent almost my whole day at the airport. Had to change my flight; the new one was also delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "extremely comfortable"
Cons: "no leg room"
