Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."

Pros: "Airplane is relatively new and really like that all seats have USB connection and 110V plugs!!"

Pros: "Awesome !"

Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Extra leg room in economy."
Cons: "Only 3 bathrooms for the entire economy class. The cabin was freezing."

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "My seat was great . The flight was smooth and on time both ways . The staff was friendly."

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Cons: "The price of wine-not the crews fault but $7 for a small glass of wine is a lot! Everything else was great! I recommend Alaskan Airlines!"

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

Pros: "This was the SECOND cancelled flight from Alaska on this trip. I called customer service and rebooked on Delta. I was shocked alaska cancelled both legs of the trip and made my travel day home about 7 hours when the flight was 1 hour... not impressed. Will look to book delta in the future for this leg."

Pros: "The staff was so helpful from the moment I walked in to helping me check in to discreetly giving me a seat belt extender. The airplane was comfortable with plenty of space for a coach seat. I really had a good experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "The cheese platter was delicious and I like the gogo entertainment. Boarding was very quick, the crew was hepful and kind."

Pros: "Leg room, boarding"
Cons: "Crew kept talking and advertising their credit card services and all of its benefits. I just wanted to sleep but they kept yapping away nonstop through the overhead system. First and last time flying with this airline."

Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Cons: "This flight was overbooked and there wasn't room for my carry on"

Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."

Pros: "More cookies!!! Please! Traveled with a toddler. Crew arranged for us (2 adults and a toddler) to have a 3 seat row to ourselves. Very thoughtful and considerate."
Cons: "Not enough cookies!"

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."

Pros: "The crew on both flights were very nice!"
Cons: "On first leg of trip my suitcase came off the plane with a very large dent! On return flight my 2nd suitcase came off the plane missing one wheel! I have a back injury and it's very difficult to drag a suitcase around without a wheel. So now I have two broken suitcases!!!!"

Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."

Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"

Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"

Pros: "It was decent"

Pros: "Timely flight left in time"
Cons: "Use your own device and not a lot of free content compared to other airlines"

Cons: "Kicked out of boarding due to nose bleed. Didn't matter that it stopped before the last person boarded. Had to fend for ourselves and find a hotel room at 7pm on a Friday night with zero help from Alaska. The attitude of the agents at boarding was at best apathetic and rude for one in particular."

Pros: "Nice, friendly crew."
Cons: "Limited complimentary beverages, would like to see more varieties, always a short landing at Burbank."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We had a 2.5 hour delay because there was someone missing in the crew. It sounded like it hadn’t been properly planned for the flight so it was frustrating. However, once that person showed up, everything was great and the crew was very sweet"

Pros: "The staff was exceptional with the distance to loading the plane and with serving us food. It was flawless."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"

Cons: "I’m a pretty big guy so this won’t apply for many other people . But the seats didn’t have much space . It was a very uncomfortable experience. I have taken many other flights and this one was one of the worst."

Pros: "Crew were helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Flight on time! Missed connections. In hotel overnight. Missed the event I was travelling to attend!"

Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."

Cons: "Great flight!"

Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"

Pros: "Every seat had an entertainment screen, with a variety games, movies, or flight information available."
Cons: "The flight arrived 20 minutes early (win), but we then proceeded to have to wait about 15 minutes to pull into the gate because the previous plane handing left yet."

Pros: "The free upgrade"

Pros: "Clean, new interior. Nice entertainment options and nice screen. Lots of options for charging devices."
Cons: "A greater variety of snacks would be nice."

Pros: "I loved Craig on our flight he made it a hilarious and fun experience! And he needs a raise!"
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable, and boarding was slow. To be expected I assume for anything not first class."

Pros: "The entire crew was hospitable & accommodating; I was very pleased with all of the flight crew!"
Cons: "My disappointment regarding my flight experience had nothing to do with the flight crew I met/seen/corresponded with; I was unhappy & displeased to pick up my new luggage with the top zippered broke off & missing."

Pros: "Nothing"

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: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."

Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"

Cons: "Late boarding and take off with no explanation."

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."

Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. No issues. Short flight. I was comfortable. The Biscoff and Ginger Ale was fine as always."
Cons: "No entertainment in the cheap seats. Free WiFi but I couldn’t connect to anything. But I had my Kindle..."

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"

Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."

Pros: "Attendants very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone with a smile and a pleasant voice. One woman was having a very hard time. She evidently was afraid to fly and wanted to get off the plane. The attendants were very kind to her, spent time with her and informed the pilot. The pilot made several comments using her name making sure she knew every time we were about to run into some turbulence. I thought that was very kind."
Cons: "Sometimes very hard to hear the instructions and the pilot when they are speaking. Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"

Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."

Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"

Cons: "One thing I didn't like is that this flight had three different numbers,. Aeromexico, Delta, and KLM. AND we didn't know which counter to go to to get our tickets ( it turned out Delta). There was not a single number to call to ask questions it get help....it turned out that JustFly was the contact, but we purchased through Kayak."

Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."

Pros: "N A"
Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."

Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"

Pros: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"

Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "smooth landing, little turbulence and very accomadationg staff. Plane was clean and comfy seats. My youngest had not been on plane in quite some time, and the flight attendants my her very at ease"

Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

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

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"

Pros: "flight attendant excellent. Flight on time."
Cons: "Seats too small tight uncomfortable. Boarding without a jetway uncomfortable."

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

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: "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?"

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"

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 attendant gave me a free beer!"

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: "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."

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: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Tired of less friendly, overweight domestic fight attendants (this is not the case on Asian Airlines (i.e. Korean, Japan)"

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: "I understand some delays can occur due to tecnical problems and most of the times they are out of control but negative issues related to communications they are controllable and they must be reviewed and implemente properly."

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."

Cons: "Just a suggestion, if you get new planes it is very comfortable when the seats have a bending headrest. It really helps to hold the head, especially nice for red eye flights."

Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"

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: "Crew was as communicative as possible about the delay process. Answered questions and suggested solutions for travelers who were affected by the delay."

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

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

Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."

Pros: "I met someone who was going to a university I used to attend from South Africa. I enjoyed the entertainment selection and the fact that the flight was quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence on the plane ride a couple of times during the 8 hour flight."

Cons: "Our luggage was lost for about 22 hours, we kept getting coflcting information each time we called to check on it. The rental car that was also booked through the KAyak was junk. We requested a mid-size car, they tried to give us an old mini-van that was dented up, we called Enterprise instead and got a 2016 Ford Focus with unlimited mileage for only 15.00 more for the the 5 days of rental."

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

Pros: "Fast boardin times"

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: "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."

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: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"

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

Pros: "Everything was excellent but the decent was probably the roughest I've ever experienced. The poor Stewart ran with bags and wet naps up to touch down. The beverage and pretzels were great."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. We did receive a beverage but no pretzels."

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: "The check in process"
Cons: "See above"

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

Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"

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"

Cons: "Something was wrong with the plane and I miss work"

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: "The space and entertainment was good"

Cons: "2 hrs delay"

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: "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: "The people on the plane were friiendly enough, the customer service once we were on the ground was terrible"
Cons: "United Customer Service Blamed weather for a delay, I am a pilot and didn't see any weather delays posted for Newark. Even if there was weather, they didn't hold our outbound flight and missed it by 15 minutes. Didn't comp us for a hotel, had to stay in Jersey out of pocket, Jersey is busy, dirty, smelly, and overcrowded. Not enough infrastructure for the people. We were lucky we got there 2 hours prior to flight time and had TSA Pre Check."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed for an excessive amount of time before the flight was finally Cancelled. Got stuck waiting for over 7hrs before the flight was eventually cancelled. Barley made it home in time for my grandfather's funeral as a result."

Pros: "Free wifi, snack was yummy"

Cons: "Food,crew could be better"

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"

Cons: "Flight cancelled. Went with another airline. Waited 1:20 to get assistance"

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: "Onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "United terminal gate crew at Norfolk International was horrible."

Pros: "All flights on time. Always I used the same apps for my tickets!!"

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."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

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: "I think your agents on up did well handling rebooking and upset people. I was told I would miss my flight first thing this morning but the agent was able to get me on and I arrived in CR only 1. Hour late. Thank you for the great service. It has to be hard picking up the pieces after the hurricane."

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

Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"

Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that not only was my flight cancelled but so was its replacement with no explanation."

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"

Cons: "Typical horror story... Lied to by gate attendants... Hours late to destination with no apologies... Essentially got totally screwed without reimbursement."

Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."
