"The Turkey wrap was not that good. I sure like the Turkey Sandwich better."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The food was very good. We pre-ordered a cheese plate and a wrap. A few weeks before our trip, Alaska Air changed the flight times, and we decided the connection time was too tight and so changed to a later connection. The agent we talked to about the change was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. It's a good airline, typically rated as the best or second-best of the US airlines. As far as we can tell, its high rating is accurate."
Cons: "We originally had chosen our flight from Boston to Seattle to connect with our flight from Seattle to Sitka with an hour and ten minutes between them. However, Alaska Air changed the schedules of both flights, leaving only 45 minutes between flights. That is barely enough time to connect (the flights left from different terminals) if there are no delays. We thus had to change our plans not long before our departure to another flight to Sitka that left 5 hours later, forcing us to kill a lot of time in the boring Seatac airport. Apparently Alaska Air is notorious for changing its flight schedules. Travelers should keep that in mind when arranging flights and try to choose first flights that arrive soon enough that several alternative connecting flights are possible if Alaska Air changes the flight times."

Cons: "My bag was lost, but I think that was more of an American Airlines issue than a Alaska one."

Pros: "FA moved me to a better seat after seeing me stuffed between 2 other large individuals. Very considerate!"

Pros: "The crew was professional in every way,"
Cons: "There were a couple of individuals with oversized carry-ons that held up boarding as they tried repeatedly to get the carry-ons into the overhead bins. Utilizing a carry-on sizing tool in the gate area would have identified these two oversized carry-ons PRIOR to boarding and could have kept everyone safer. Instead, passengers behind the offenders were waiting while the bags were opened, items removed, and another attempt made at stuffing them into the overhead bins, all while passengers already seated were subjected to even more compromised social distancing in enclosed spaces."

Cons: "First class seat broken. Didn’t recline. Crackers not food. $20 for Internet that’s constantly buffering??? Junk money grubbing company."

Cons: "No food and seats broken 1st class leg and upgraded seating. I paid extra for broken seats that won’t recline on Alaska ar."

Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early and the pilot took us over the mountains so we had an excellent view"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "IT was ok, for a 45 flight"
Cons: "The crew was so rude!!!!!!"

Pros: "This flight is generally convenient."
Cons: "The flight was late due to a late arriving aircraft. 1:15 late. I wish Ravn could avoid this. The pilots were skilled but there was quite a bit of turbulence."

Pros: "It was all great"
Cons: "All was well"

Pros: "Flight crew and attendants did very well"
Cons: "Gate changes in Seattle needs to be better communicated to travelers"

Pros: "Great crew again"
Cons: "After running from my last flight to make it to this one, the aircraft taxied out and we waited another 30 minutes before departing without any updates. Seats were uncomfortable"

Cons: "Better snacks premium members"

Pros: "Crew was amazing / helpful and kind"

Pros: "Toni was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours"

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Very convenient layover switch at airport."
Cons: "Little personal space in seating. No video monitors— need to use own cellphone to view videos. Need to pre-order meals if you want them."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Snack service."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Crew was kind, friendly and funny. Gogo inflight entertainment was great, and made the trip go by faster."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Even a short period of travel they are helpful and entertaining people"
Cons: "I just don’t like giving only a 1 pc of biscuit and a 1cup of soda or drinks for almost 6 hrs of travel. At least they must give a 1meal dinner or lunch and or breakfast"

Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPad to rent or on seat tv screen"

Pros: "Customer Service Agents and the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay $10 to use a Diggie Playy to watch a movie. Virgin Air had them at no charge."

Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Screaming baby (not your fault--maybe flight attendants could have offered something to help calm kid, juice or crackers or something--it was a REALLY bad screaming baby!!). Slow drink service."

Pros: "Flight had a mechanical issue. They kept us informed, provided vouchers for food, and a discount on a future flight. We also were offered a free drink once the flight finally did take off. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour delay, however, we deplaned after about 50 minutes."

Cons: "On the leg from Seattle to Anchorage there was a significant time delay due to a “medical situation” I suspect a young female passenger had a few to many drinks and puked all over the back of the plane prior to take off. It happens and is really no ones fault but her own. I guess being the smug person I am I would like to see Alaska be compensated by the young lady"

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "yes"

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, crew was good."
Cons: "You had to pay for beer, are you got for a snack was a cookie."

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "I thought I had reserved an aisle seat but I was in the middle when I boarded."

Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"

Pros: "It was great to have fewer people on the flight so we could all spread out on the seats"

Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."

Pros: "my flight was from fairbanks to seattle and then to orlando. i was very comfortable and the attendants were caring when someone felt ill. not a medical emergency just a woman who felt odd."
Cons: "the on board thing to do with the tablet didnt work. when we landed in seattle i asked the customer service booth for help and they ould not offer any suggestions except to rent thier equipment"

Pros: "Good as well. I made it home in a fair amount of time and even better there was plenty of leg room in the plane. Yeahh"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top notch on my pole! Always been Awesome and I have flown with them for the last 20 years!"

Pros: "The lavatory was clean."
Cons: "They changed my seats without telling me, even the day before my itinerary said I was in the first row of First Class by the window with my partner's seat right beside me and they switched it because of some policy that forbids dogs yet couldn't let me know that in July when I booked this and spoke to a representative on the phone to confirm I was even allowed to bring a dog on board. And even then they made me feel like it was not possible and had to stow my dog below in cargo because only one dog could be in the First Class section, and again I was never told that in that moment I couldn't have my dog in the first row. Also, the representative was very clear I had to have a health certificate for my dog to fly and not only did that cost me a large deal of money and time at the veterinarian's office, but no one ever even inquired to see it. I wasted time and money for no reason other than the incompetence exhibited by Alaskan Airlines, and it's surprising to have such consistent subpar service. Especially when you're paying for First Class. Also, your food on flight had several allergens in them. Even your choice of cookie for passengers had two different types of soy. This is a common food allergy. Needless to say, I'll be flying with another airline for my trips to Alaska, as this is not my only one planned."

Pros: "In my flight form ANC to FAI the check in was seemless. I was given a bag for my car seat. I was able to check my pack n play no issues. Checking my bag"
Cons: "My flight back my cab driver was late. I got there at 530 first of all the baggage drop lady was rude and looked me up and down before choosing to talk to me. I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."

Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."

Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."

Cons: "Flying with my husband and daughter. All of our seats were split apart even after calling to fix the issue. When I went up to the counter, the lady told me too bad, she couldn't ask someone in an isle seat to switch, but I could do it myself if I wanted. My daughter is 2, can't exactly sit by herself. Food service didn't begin until almost 2 hours into a 3 hour flight but it was in no way due to turbulence. After food service, no trash service came around until about a half hour before landing. Slowest moving crew I have ever seen in my life. Also, the bathrooms were beyond disgusting. I will never fly Alaska again."

Cons: "The flight was oversold by at least 12 people, so even though I paid almost $600 I almost didn't get on because they wouldn't give me a seat assignment."

Pros: "New seat configuration is nice. Like the option of a forward cabin upgrade."
Cons: "Flight attendants were goofing around on the PA system and not giving the full briefing. We all know it by heart now, but it was unprofessional and the one gal Mimi you could barely understand. Seemed like they had all been having a night out before coming to work. Not Alaskas usual standard."

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."

Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"

Pros: "Mostly smooth flight and good service."
Cons: "Didn't use provided entertainment service."

Pros: "The stewardess working first class was very rude to my son. Her negative attitude set the tone for the entire flight and ruined our experience."

Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."
Cons: "A small credit for miles as the Wifi didn’t work."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."

Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! They were helpful and professional. Made the flight wonderful. Our stewardess, Brenda Joyce, has great energy. My daughters and I were taking a trip to honor my husband who recently passed and she was phenomenal at keeping our spirits up."
Cons: "Better snacks."

Cons: "More leg room."

Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."

Cons: "Customs when we arrived in MPLS. Around 300 people get off the plane and they have 1 TSA agent checking passports. Terrible staffing and management on their part. Pretty sad!"

Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."

Pros: "Ease of boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (naturally) so the crew was rushed and inattentive. No pre-flight beverages in first class, and then no follow up service once aloft unless you asked. Makes me wonder why I’m paying extra for mediocre service."

Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."

Cons: "Ac not working properly. Hot."

Pros: "Courteous flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It is a short trip from Atlanta to Augusta."
Cons: "No complaints...too short of a trip to complain about anything!"

Cons: "The schedule was not good and I was needed to take later flight than I ordered."

Pros: "Food was good and so was the movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the interviewers were disrespectful. Also I was upgraded last minute and I could never understand the system by which upgrades to first class are granted. Just because I used my points to buy the flight I wasn’t eligible for an upgrade to the one seat left in first class even though the flight is full and I am the first one on comfort+ upgrade list and there was no one on delta one upgrade list."

Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"

Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Cons: "Nada"

Cons: "Loud annoying flight attendants. On the plane, off the plane. Terrible delays"

Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."

Pros: "The plane was on time, the crew was friendly, no delays, landing was fine. In fact we actually made it a little before the time that we were scheduled. Since the flight was so short, I did not have any food."
Cons: "The seats were a little small."

Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."

Pros: "everything is fine except th nickel and dime."
Cons: "Why do airlines charge you an arm and a leg to fly then force to 1. Check a bag, or 2. Get a drink, or 3. Get a seat in an exit row or worst of all now 4. WIFI IS NOW A STANDARD ON PLANES BUT PASSENGERS MUST PAY?!?!"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flight attendant Gillian Awesome. Crew was fun and made my kids first flight great."

Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"

Pros: "NOT A THING!!"
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"

Cons: "Price to get a little more space"

Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."

Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."

Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. No delays were encountered. Everyone behaved themselves.no"
Cons: "Only problem was I couldn't get connected to the wi-GI."

Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."

Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."

Pros: "Free tv"

Cons: "Not knowing where our seat was until the very last was disconcerting. My wife and I did not get to sit together"

Pros: "Getting to ATL"
Cons: "We boarded, they closed the door, told us to turn our phones off, acted like we were leaving, then informed us we had an hour delay. The flight attendants remarked that they couldn't hold us hostage and could get off if we want. The whole thing wasn't done properly."

Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."

Pros: "Very nice Flight Crew from Detroit to Las Vegas!!"
Cons: "The ground crew (in Detroit) were unfriendly and rude. I asked two simply which line I should be in, the First lady just ignored me, the second gentleman rudely told me where to stand. They were not terribly busy at the time and I politely asked as I was unsure which line to be in. The flight attendants (only from ORF to Detroit) also were unfriendly with an attitude. Just simple stuff. I asked for extra ice, she thought I said no ice. Simple mistake, no big deal but when I explained that I actually wanted extra ice she was perturbed!"

Pros: "The flights were all on time, in fact a bit early. The crew was very helpful, both on the ground and in the air. They were courteous and not patronizing."
Cons: "Offer more healthy choices for food. Give larger amounts of beverages particularly water."

Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Pros: "Finally, a free movie! Now, whoever picks the movie needs to do a better job, but atleast it was something! Service was Excellent, first pass with snack and drink carts, then they came through with coffee, and again with water! Now, that's service! Great job! Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Bathrooms, once again... disgusting. Urine on the floor, smelled awful. Tiny bathrooms, only 1 up front"

"As ALWAYS, the seating is cramped. Due. To the fact, that it was a short flight, it was tolerable."

"I spent money on extra leg room and as I’m boarding the switch my seat to a regular seat. Horrible scam to get extra money from passengers. Never flying this crap airline again."

Pros: "The crew seemed to make the best of their situation"
Cons: "The airplane was old and very cramped. Needs to be replaced with a more appropriate plane."

Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The employees were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner."

Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."

Cons: "Lots of bags had to be checked from the passengers already on the plane. Wifi kept going during the super bowl so we couldn’t watch everything."

Pros: "The one gentleman who came to the RESCUE at the ticket counter was AWESOME!!! AMAZING customer service, friendly, and helpful - I had someone else but it was a pleasure watching him take care of others! (He was wearing a tobagan and ear muffs making him look like he had Mickey Ears on!)"
Cons: "Only 3 people handling check in - ALL of the self service machines needed a restock on bag tags so we were all in line for tags and the one attendant at the Bag Drop kept telling us all she couldn’t print tags. WORST experience at RIC in years!"

Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"

Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"

Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."

Cons: "Use another airline"

Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."

Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"

Pros: "There was a hood vibe from crew. I believe the good nature of the crew had a positive effect on me and follow travelers. A pleasant experience."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that would have improved the experience."

Pros: "as expected"

Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"

Cons: "Extraordinarily rude staff, no information, mess with gates, staff not willing to help. Really rude and awful-worst experience ever!"

Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."

Pros: "Stewards were good."
Cons: "Mechanical problems and incompetent repair people who forgot to fill out paperwork delayed our flight by 3 hours. Because of this I almost missed my RESCHEDULED next flight and my bag was gate checked to baggage claim."

Pros: "Flight was late, food gave me diarrhea o"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"

Pros: "A comedy of errors that really wasn't funny. My poor elderly parents are exhausted by what should have been an easy non-stop flight in good weather."
Cons: "The service and equipment problems."

Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."

Pros: "Good legroom on economy"

Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."

Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"

Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."

Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"

Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."

Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. The seats were pretty nice and clean and modern. A power outlet at every seat, and not just USB."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to paperwork and some people were racing to their connecting flights. Lots of turbulence. The seats seemed comfortable at first, but actually hurt my tailbone pretty quickly, while the 17 hour flight we took next did not. Tray tables are the folding kind and a bit awkward. We were in the last row by the bathrooms and our seats didn't recline at all. You had to pay for any kind of snacks other than a little bag of pretzels and a package of cookies. We were in one of the last two boarding sections, and the woman letting us on the plane tried to make us check out carry-on luggage, stating that the overhead bins were full. Well, we didn't want to be without our bags for the next 24 hours, so we argued and she let us "try" to bring them on. There was PLENTY of room back there! It's just the standard line they feed, apparently, so beware if you're sitting in the back of the plane!"

Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."

Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. Over six hours late."

Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."

Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."

Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."

Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"

Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"

Pros: "Security checkpoint was very quick, being a Sunday morning, and we departed on time. Everything was very normal."

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."

Pros: "on time..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, will never fly American Airlines again"

Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and all was good."
Cons: "It would be nice if it offered some kind if entertainment Not everyone has a portable device.."

Pros: "The crew was courteous, friendly, and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked by ten, leaving the possibility of my reservation not being honored and missing the flight."

Cons: "United canceled the flight ~36 hours in advance of the departure time because of anticipated severe weather. The forecast did not include any bad weather, and the apparent reason for the cancellation was excess capacity on routes to non-Newark United hubs from Norfolk. United refused to accommodate us on a comparable flight on another airline, and Delta offered a direct flight for less money than we originally paid United. United alienated a previously loyal United customer."

Pros: "The crew was nice and came by often."
Cons: "There was a dog on the 10 hour flight, I thought United Airlines had an 8 hour limit. The dog barked throughout the flight, so obviously it was a pet not a service animal. UA needs to enforce its own policy."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional, and the food and beverage on the Lufthansa transatlantic sector were better than US carriers offer."
Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."

Pros: "Friendly crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Comfort was fair"
Cons: "It was delayed - enough to miss the flight"

Cons: "The flight took off late due to baggage not being loaded in a timely manner and the wait on the flight when we arrived was much longer due to equipment not being handled properly; because of this my family and I missed our connecting flight."

Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"

Pros: "enjoyed getting moved up to economy plus with my premier silver status."
Cons: "the little kid kicking my seat behind me which is no one's fault except the parent which you can't police."

Pros: "Everything was great. Flight attendants were enthusiastic and friendly."

Pros: "Not a crowded flight, Norfolk is usually a easy transit even when busy."
Cons: "Very cramped seating when your 6’ 260;"

Pros: "Early arrival. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Check in was confusing."

Pros: "It was good. One crew at the boarding station was not helpful but another stepped in and she was awesome."

Pros: "The staff that is it"
Cons: "The plane broke down I was put on standby offered a middle seat and I'm a bigger guy I was stuck in between 2 other bigger guys and wasn't offered any compensation I'm anyway!!!! The next review will be on yelp"

Pros: "Clean newer plane. Nice staff. Smooth flight. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tsa frisk"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"

Cons: "I hit the side of my foot on a sharp piece if metal that was exposed on the right side of my seat. I bled and took pictures"

Pros: "Flint got delayed"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged no longer usable"

Cons: "Flight delayed. Missed my 2nd flight. Stuck overnight at airport. Vacation ruined"

Pros: "Very little. Flight crews were nice"
Cons: "Flights were delayed by several hours on two occasions. Staff were less than helpful and generally unknowledgable."

Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Everything, TSA agent said my guess is as good as his when and if we are leaving I was upset at that kind of response. Never will use united ariline agian."

Cons: "Near 5 hour delay at departure airport with very poor communication."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."

Pros: "The plane was not very full...that made the experience so nice. All passengers were there early and boarded quickly allowing us to leave the ground ahead of schedule. They offer entertainment using their app on your phone or notepad."

Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."

Pros: "Pleasent crew"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Newark to Ft. Lauderdale due to a 30 minute weather delay, and then an hour long delay imposed by Newark Airport due to air traffic volume. I had to sleep (barely due to all of the nighttime maintenance going on) on the damn floor by my standby gate because I couldn't afford a hotel and United refused to pay for one."

Pros: "I had not been given a choice of gluten free meal before boarding so I declined the food offered, and the attendant, without my asking her to , went and found something gluten free."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work well."

Cons: "Food,crew could be better"

Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"

Pros: "Pilot did a great job tried to hit as little turbulence as possible. Smooth landing. Flight attendants were very nice from Norfolk to Newark"

Cons: "Both planes were late, and you sent this questionnaire before flight had even arrived in Omaha"

Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."

Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"

Pros: "The United skybus we were on from ORF to EWR was comfy."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac at ORF for 1.5hr to find a de-icing crew and nearly missing the next flight leading to a multi-terminal sprint to make it."

Pros: "The people were really nice. We left on time or early on most flights which was also nice. Like the variety of liquor and prices for beverage that's offered."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment doesn't compare to delta. Our last plane was getting retired so it didn't have any in flight entertainment and the snacks tasted really old. The other flights had spotty connection at best and was hard to connect to their movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."

Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."

Pros: "wheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injury"

Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"

Pros: "The flights were on the empty side so there was an open seat next to me"
Cons: "The first flight got delayed so I missed my connection. My connecting flight got delayed about five times and sat on the runway for over an hour. I ended getting home at eleven PM when I was anticipating getting home st 9:45 AM"

Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Worst customer service my 15 month old daughter and I have ever experienced. United airlines does not care about us one bit. They put my daughters safety at risk with such lack of compassion. Caused such unbelievable stress and chaos. I will continue to tell everyone I know how horrible this was. No one will want to fly United after they hear what my daughter and I were put thru."
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Absoluteky nothing. I mean literally NOTHING. I take that back, a pilot for another flight who saw my predicament and tried his best to help me figure which flight to take in the morning. Also, as far as floors go, the airport terminal was maybe only the ninth worst I've slept on. Kudos!"
Cons: "Wretched customer service. Flight delayed multiple hours after my ride departed and stranded at airport for fourteen hours with no food or beverage comps, or even kindness from the their agents. Was told "oh well, weather". I had left my remaining cash (and didn't bring my card) with my lady friend to get the kids some nice things (she is driving back on a seperate day and was already two hours away by the time we found out flight wasn't happening in time) and absolutely zero compassion given by United. Also, required to add an 80 dollar uber when I get home because there will be no ride as my orginal ride can't make it. May also have to call out of work. Not even an offer to bump my seat on next flight to close to the cabin or exit row. Two hours on phone with customer service with no offers of even slight compensation even when this entire situation is explained. I get it. I agreed to terms of service, but your service sucked and is costing me an armful of money at this point, wouldn't it be in the slightest interest of theirs to give me a meal, or a room or even a lousy coffee?"

Cons: "Apparently flight crews are limited and even though our plane was ready to leave we had to wait for a crew member to arrive that was delayed at another airport which in turn delayed our flight."

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

Cons: "After getting pushed back 3 times it finally got canceled and left me and 4 other strangers to drive back home so I wouldn't miss work. Another not being late to work in the military is not good to go."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful and snacks were average"
Cons: "The seat back was very uncomfortable but this was a short flight with a small plane. Not terrible but below average."

Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Cons: "None"
