Cons: "Sat on ground for over an hour at Dulles A luggage problem wad the rationale. They was some inclement weather, but they knew it was coming and should have been prepared.

Cons: "The plane had problems delaying the flight by 3hrs. Alaska really should change how they load the plane.

Cons: "When there’s no source of entertainment"

Pros: "Spacios seats and overhead bins. Staff is attentive and nice."
Cons: "Rough take off, but im sure its weather dependent since th weather weather was pretty sporadic."
Pros: "I would like to possibly see some better food options maybe for people who can not consume dairy. With the many different cheese platters, I was very uninterested. I had an early flight and thought I'd be able to eat something with a sort of substance. I was quite disappointed, I guess I'll have to be the annoying customer who brings chipotle on the plane next time."
Pros: "Alaska tried to keep us informed after technical issues forced a three-hour delay in the flight. This included communication, snacks, and compensation. Given the circumstances, the ground crew performed well. The cabin crew did a great job."

Pros: "Happy to now have a direct flight from SEA to SBP!!"
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful. Coffee was good. Seats were pretty comfortable"

Cons: "Was not told about renting device when my iPad device woluld not work. I would have paid if someone told me that renting was an option. I was told sorry " you r old school".

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, and the flight on the way home was not overbooked, which was lovely!"
Cons: "One flight attendant told me not to pack my bag so much if I wanted to take it on the plane, and I had to check it at the gate. Once on board, there were bigger suitcases than mine on board. I was happy to do what they said, but it would be nice if they were more consistent about the bag sizes. I didn't have this problem on the way back to Seattle though."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."

Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."
Pros: "The boarding process was easy. Crew was friendly. In flight movie selection was great."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and some passengers could have used a little deodorant."
Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"
Cons: "Organization on when the flight would be leaving. BETTER food vouchers. And prudence goes a long way"
Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"
Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Cons: "The staff, specifically Stephen, need to focus when serving who he served and where he left off! 5 passengers were not served at all until they came around for trash which we did not have! Then were told there were not any full meals left! If you booked that many tickets the amount of meals should match!"
Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Cons: "7 hours late with only 3-4 updates the whole time."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Airlines should board from the back first. That would eliminate all the jostling of passengers already seated in the front, as well as the clogging of aisles as passengers trying to load their bags into overhead bins or under seats bar the way for passengers with seats behind the people blocking the aisles. It would also make it easier for flight attendants to get to passengers who need assistance. Seats are too narrow for the size of most American passengers. The people next to me on both my flights took up part of my space and pressed against me because their upper bodies were too large to fit in their seat space. Paying to check a bag on a domestic flight is very irritating."
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "No TVs in the seats to entertain the kids."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Pros: "The helpful crew"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "Flight attendant was hilarious, personable, and caring."
Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat but somehow was assigned a window seat when I checked in. Sat next to a very large man and now my back and neck hurt from being cramped next to the side of a curved fuselage."
Pros: "Lots of food, good service."
Cons: "No Wifi! I couldn't believe it... no Wifi whatsoever. I will now book flights based on Wifi availability as I lost hours of work I could have been doing."
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."
Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."
Cons: "Cancelled and put me on a flight over a day later with no hotel voucher"
Pros: "As expected."
Cons: "The landing was rough!"
Pros: "Snack delicious"
Pros: "No Lufthansa?!"
Cons: "No Lufthansa?!"
Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "Easy to board and check in, good price"
Cons: "It was extra to check luggage"
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding seemed quicker than other flights on other airlines"
Cons: "Noisy/ squeaky seat"

Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Pros: "This plane was smaller so I got to sit by myself so it was more comfortable for me"
Cons: "Lack of drinks/ comp snacks"

Cons: "Luggage transfer"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Pros: "Fine. Wish my earlier one wasn't so delayed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The boarding process Boarding should start from the rear rows to the front irrespective of what group shows on your ticket.some ended up with no storage space as they are in group 4 or 5"
Pros: "It's seems like no one cares about passengers in this airline.... Rude services"
Cons: "we had to pay to watch any channel."
Pros: "The upgrade it made the all the difference in the world"
Cons: "Would not change a thing"
Cons: "EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Good trip"
Pros: "Liked the upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Was asked to pay $25 extra for my luggage. That should have been disclosed up front on the ticket. Not happy"
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."

Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. People forgetting to even stand in line for their boarding groups getting to cut ahead of those whose group is currently in the process of boarding. That should not be allowed. It's rude and disrespectful to other passengers/customers."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "same comments as above"
