It’s just tight quarters for a long flight… not much to do
The crew was excellent, attentive and professional. Our charging system in our row was down so I couldn't get entertainment or emails. However, a passenger next to me asked escalated the problem and the attendant had her plug in to the seats behind us. I suppose I didn't want to bother anyone. The landing was the best by far!!!
Flight was on time. No problems with luggage. We did have to use our own personal devices to view movies. Unfortunately my ipad did not have ios 13, so I couldn't access movies with it. I had to use my phone instead. Instead of full-sized sodas, I noticed that they gave us a mini-version of soda (around 8 oz). However, they did come through and do a second beverage service during our flight from Virginia to California, so we were able to get more to drink. They did not offer us pretzels during the second beverage service, although they may have if I had asked. Overall a good experience with minor inconveniences.
Already 15 minutes late and then horrible experience after landing. Another plane was occupying gate and then mechanical problems with the gate. It really put us behind
Cons: "Better business class seating, better food and in seat entertainment as it isn’t enjoyable watching movies on an iPhone."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The plane was old and the seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "To be honest, I liked everything."
Pros: "The flight attendant was so amazing and observant that she noticed myself and classmates all wearing our alma maters sweatshirt and gave us the loveliest a shout out!! We were headed for our college reunion and had unintentionally been on the same flight. That was so much fun!!"
Cons: "Free headphones"
Pros: "It was a quiet early morning flight that went smoothly."

Cons: "The menu was preordered. Yet on plane menu not available. The electrical outlet did not work in our row. No wifi over mexico"
Cons: "Alaska is usually good. Thanx"
Cons: "Person next to me was tobacco smoking! And he was really obese taking up 2 seats! Airline shouldnt have noticed it and took action!"
Pros: "I slept the whole way, so wouldn't know other than that they didn't bug me"
Cons: "First time on Alaska in 30 years, still impressed. The seat had plenty of leg room which is rare on other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was very good, caring and concerned."

Pros: "Seats were decently comfy. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours"
Pros: "Modernized flight, no delays, military member service"
Pros: "Excellent and courteous cabin crew. United Flight attendants are a surly bunch of weaponized employees that seem to so hate their jobs and/or their airline... but you all know that. Life is too short."
Pros: "The lady WHO assisted US at the Alaska Airline kiosk was very Helpful, she made IT easier for US to check in. There were a lot OF AirPort employers assisting us Go thru the scanners, IT was a breeze, IAD was very relaxingThank you very much"
Pros: "Every aspect of the trip was above our expectations, comfortable seats, delightful staff, good food and on time service."
Pros: "Bathrooms were relatively clean"
Cons: "Crew was rude and very unhelpful. Made smart little comments to many passengers."
Pros: "Movies were free"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."
Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."
Pros: "The plane was on-time. Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were very helpful. They helped passengers get to their seats, find places for their luggage. Entertainment options were good. Bags arrived within a reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more food options or at least stock a few more of the ones they have. The fruit and cheese tray sells out early making it a long flight without real food. I don’t consider chips and cookies lunch food."
Cons: "That there wasn’t anyone to meet us at the gate and we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "Virgin plane, flight crew great"
Cons: "No headphones, no snacks. Tray tables not clean."
Pros: "Great plane. Nice to still have free entertainment to watch!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies. No food was provided, you have to pay for any food or snack. You are given a cup of soda not the whole can. But I came prepared with food and drink. Overall, very good airline!"
Cons: "No food or snack are provided unless you purchase it!"
Pros: "Even the baggage was excellent. My bag was on the belt before I got there"
Pros: "Very Friendly staff"
Cons: "unable to manage the reservation and select seats to put the 2 of us togehter"
Cons: "The new TV program choices. I miss the Direct TV live program choices. It made the flights go so much faster! The few episode choices was a huge disappointment. This was one of the things that made Virgin America flights special!"
Pros: "I have been flying for many years, and must admit that the flight cabin crew was incredible. Professional, attentive and on their feet for 95 % of the time. Thank you"
Pros: "The crew is kind and I appreciated their service while flying"
Cons: "For my first time flying with them, you would hope that your luggage makes it to your final destination. Since it didn’t, many plans in Hancock had to be rearranged and my ride has to rearrange her schedule. Not to mention, I had to rearrange my schedule again just to pick it up at the airport the next day."
Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"
Cons: "Passenger next to me seated in the aisle seat had a seat belt extension and needed two seats. I was in the middle and had a very uncomfortable flight. His arms were on my side and fortunately my husband was in the window seat and I leaned into him the entire time. The mans wife was not next to him but across the aisle and I understand why! He also had very poor hygiene."
Cons: "Everthing they got delayed in L.A so that mess up or connecting flight to cebu come on now if we are able to wait for your crew why cant u wait for your paying customers for 10 mins more?"
Pros: "Great crew and good service"
Cons: "Flight was late. Seats were small and cramped. At LAX, had to wait on board 20 minutes for bus to immigration. Then had to stand on bus for 15 minutes while drivers chatted outside. Immigration was a nightmare at LAX. Never again."
Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."

Cons: "Earphone jack did not work so I couldn’t listen to any movies or shows — shouldn’t sell a seat on a 5 hour flight if entertainment isn’t working. Plane also felt like it could have been cleaner."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Agent at gate was hard to understand when making announcements - not due to accent or anything like that - he just spoke too quickly and directly into mic. He kept saying something about our flight moving to a different gate but it didn’t- very confusing"

Finally fixed than went to leave the gate the 2nd time and there was another malfunction. 2 hours later finally took off. When we landed at lax we had to travel across the runway for quite awhile to our gate where we had to wait another 45 min for the other plane to leave before we could park."
Pros: "They were super attentive !"
Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings.

The flight was late but the checkin crew was stellar and kept us informed and in a great mood. Then the flight crew took it from there and they were, as always, true professionals. Thank you!"
Cons: "Took my Mom's luggage and didn't check it through on the connecting flight. Then Said they would overnight it but didn't pay the charge for Saturday delivery. My 77 year old mother went without her things in Naples Florida after having a hurricane hit her house. I am appalled at the service."

Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."

Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Cons: "My seat back screen was inoperable. I had other stuff to do, so not a problem although I would have liked having music and movie options. Oh well... In other news, AA’s morning food options are incredibly lame. It’s almost as if they don’t want to sell any food. Finally, can come one tell me where to buy stock in those mediocre little Biscotti cookies they (and every other airline) pass out for free? Must be KILLING it!"
Pros: "Smooth price getting boarding pass and we were anytime sit together"

Cons: "Landing was rough."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Cons: "Tecnical problems dellay no good american arlines i dont recomended"

Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, comfortable and decent amount of leg room, good in-flight entertainment options and regular refreshments."

Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"

Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Cons: "More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "The airplane was new. It had power plug and entertainment at each seat. It has a fabulous selections of entertainment for all ages. Comfortable seats as well."
Cons: "The crew only came offered drinks 1 time for a 5 hours flight. They did come by to offer room temperature water mid way through the flight. Food choices were minimal."
Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Cons: "AA delayed flight 3 hours, overbooked, took 1 hour to board the plane with all passengers, another 45 minutes to prepare a gate at the destination airport and another 45 minutes to unload checked bags. Hesitant to fly with AA again."
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "The entertainment system was good. It took mind mind off the 4 delays that occurred with the flight."
Cons: "4 delays that occurred with the flight. 45 minutes to board. 30 min to leave the gate. 30 min to takeoff and 30 min to get to the gate when we landed."
Cons: "We took off with low fuel diverted to DFW then on to lax with no water on board Completely unsat So much for a non-stop flight"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Cons: "I hated that my flight got delayed for over an hour and I was not informed of this delay. I had people waiting at the airport to pick me up so it would've been beneficial for me to know of the delay."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of meals by the time they got to the back of the plane."
A very nice, clean plane and service was excellent.
Pros: "The atention"
Cons: "The 5 hour flight was extremely full. No chance of social distancing. Did not feel safe for my family."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours with no compensation"
Pros: "Terrible service, rude, impatient crews. No food provided for a 5 hours flight, only basic drinks."
Cons: "Make sure transit with more comparable service throughout the journey."
Cons: "I wasn’t one of the passengers but it’s unbelievable that United was denying passengers in zone 5 to take their carry on. You can’t take what you are going to use during the flight, it is not normal. Is that a joke or what?"
Cons: "Cold air streaming from the storage bins."
Cons: "Everything. I paid for seats 7 months ago and they didn’t honor them. We sat seperate in the middle when we paid for aisle and together. No food, poor service, overbooked and almost didn’t allow us tickets at all. We were a connection from another airline. They damaged brand new luggage."
Cons: "The food was the worst. The setup was old. The staff was indifferent"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. The standard has decreased: leg room is reduced, and options to gain 1 or 2” of legroom, is so pricey that it feels like ‘highway robbery ‘."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, doing a good job keeping everything moving"
Cons: "Food was not good, bland"
Pros: "The food was quite good actually"
Cons: "comfort level was terrible"
Cons: "No WiFi functioning so nothing to do for five hours when you counted on having WiFi. Now I will always bring a book"
Cons: "The WiFi system is very slow"
Pros: "After sitting on the aircraft for 6 hours the day before, it left on time The Gate attendant ( older cellar gray hair/glasses tried closing the gate as I arrived!( Quoted... didn’t think you’d make it... grabbed my boarding pass & switched me from my window (which I reserved back in JUNE) & put me in center seat( I’m OT A GOOD MIDDLE) this woman should be fired... seriously!! She was an older woman with baaaad attitude then when we sat there for 4 hours got all FAA on us RE FAA RULES).. then the Captain & crew had to deplane & we waited anithev3 hours for new crew...bad weather or not.. this was very very very badly managed Further more... TSA REQUIRED me to open my suitcase & place my duty free merchandise in it, even tho it was a sealed sew thru bag... AAAND threw away my 1/2 empty ( under 3 0z) copperyone & shave cream !?! ETH?"
Cons: "Apathetic crew... 58% sugar cranberry/ apple soft drinks!?! Maple cookies?!? The tightest seats EVER?!? The worst domestic flight in decades"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "The flight in was delayed so we missed our connection. They took our luggage, split our group up and refused to give us accommodation or even a tooth brush or blanket. We asked a united agent for help and she suggested we can call customers service once we get back to LA. Writing this review as we are still stuck in DC. I understand that low level employees can’t do much but at what cost does one get empathy?"
Pros: "Domestic flight from IAD to LAX was not great as usual — small space, overbooked, no food, entertainment slow. But LAX-INCHEON-MNL was GREAT! Extra space, efficient, helpful and happy crew ready to help passengers! I was surprised by this!"
Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable. Food poor. Downloading an app for entertainment... a joke!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. Food poor. Downloading an app for entertainment... a joke!. 737 far past their prime."
Cons: "Really United? They STILL charge for inflight entertainment. Not like I could’ve used it if I wanted to because my screen turned off and on the entire flight. Not so great on a red eye. One of the crew was helpful, the rest short with all passengers."
Pros: "Had xtra legroom and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "I paid the xtra $99 for the economy plus but my headphone jack didn’t work so I couldn’t watch a movie and my tray table was broken so I had to hold my drink and fumble with my food. The flight attendant tried to fix it but couldn’t. Made my 6 hour flight feel like 12 hours."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough"
Cons: "I'm a disabled person, I need an aisle seat for my long legs and busted knees, but the aisle seats had about 1/3 the space for feet as the other seats. My knees were pushing into the seat in front of me. Drinks went around once about 1 hour in to the 5 hour flight, but not again after that, though they came by to collect trash 5 times. Flight crew were polite, but some clearly didn't want to be there. This is the first flight I've ever been on where I was in tears from pain, and i felt like i couldnt ask for water or even the wheelchair I needed after the flight."
Cons: "Very crowded. Seat in the back near toilet has much traffic and sitting on the aisle- much jostling. No entertainment unless you brought your own device."
Cons: "Being jostled by carts and people walking by"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Cabin temp was uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Flight boarding was on time."
Cons: "It was too cold on the flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat & arriving safely"
Cons: "Maintenance on plane delayed couple hours. Luckily I had a 3 hour layover, so by the time I got to my connecting flight I was on time for boarding. Brought my own food. In flight entertainment wad only used via apps. I miss the screens behind the headrest. Not everyone has smart devices."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Cons: "Crowed and flight delays"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "Wifi was spotty"
Pros: "United Airlines abuse of the man on Sunday is shameful and I will never fly United again!"
Cons: "I don't like how they beat and dragged that poor doctor from that flight. #fireoscarmunoz #boycottunitedairlines"
Cons: "Lost our bags which we still haven't received. Seats didn't recline. Airplane wasn't stocked with enough food for the passengers. This was on top of both flights being very delayed first due to weather and then maintenance."
Pros: "The movies, the seats wre confortables."
Cons: "Too long to boarding, very desorganized, my seats were wringful assugned took it to long to reassign the correct seats numbers, the flight was one hour delayed, the food too expensive."
Cons: "Missed my connecting fight due to my aircraft having malfunctions, as well as my flight home being delayed three times. Worst flying experience to date."
Cons: "The terminal number on my ticket was wrong and when me and some other customers asked the flight lady what was going on she was of very little help. Not only that but she was making a personal phone call. So I had to rush to the other end and then just to find out that they didn't have enough room to put my carry on so I had to place it enbetween my legs which made for an even more uncomfortable flight. Also one of the flight attendant was particularly rude and kept saying she had to do her job in a very rude tone to the point were an older retired man told her he's worked too hard in his life time to be talked to like that. Overall the poorest plane experience I've ever had and I fly quite a bit."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy, crew were professional"
Cons: "No food or entertainment for a flight with flight time for than 5 hours"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could, stayed friendly and helpful. Free DirecTV nice gesture."
Cons: "2 +hr delay boarding because of "oxygen tank service on 4 units", additional delay on Tarmac to "rebalance cargo load- luggage loaded incorrectly". Took off 5 hours late. Captain said galley was not fully loaded - row 32, no food for purchase left except 2 bags gummies bears, 1 kid box and 1 bag popcorn. And thanks for shrinking the seat space again...glad I'm only 5'6". Still ridiculous."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendants uncomfortable seats zero inflight entertainment unless you wanted to pay $7.99 Having an international ticket (coming from a previous international flight) meant they put you in the LAST boarding group No overhead bin space Overbooked flight"
Pros: "Kind and caring flight attendants and pilot"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Boarding process was the smoothest I've ever seen."
Cons: "We were delayed but I felt as if the pilot didn't inform the passengers in a timely manner. The passengers were starting to become antsy as we weren't sure why we hadn't taken off."
Cons: "Was asked to pay $25 extra for my luggage. That should have been disclosed up front on the ticket. Not happy"
Pros: "After getting on the flight to sit down and have three children sitting behind me, kicking my seat instantly, the sweet female flight attendant was quick to make accommodations to change my seat. I was moved closer to the front (bonus) and also put in an emergency exit row (extra leg room? Double bonus) I was very happy with the service given by the attendants"
Cons: "Nothing other than the snack mix for free snacks. Peanuts were surely missed!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Too cold and no blankets when I asked."
Pros: "I did not like it at all."
Cons: "Bad service, flight delay to much going on that will not finish to explain at all the bad services."

Cons: "Lack of entertainment or concern my pregnant wife to move to different seating"
Cons: "Treated horribly by the crew!!!"
