Pros: "Boarding and timelines"

On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."

Pros: "Always on time, comfortable 1st class, good value for the $$"

Cons: "No actual meal given to passengers unless you paid for it"

Pros: "Friendly and courteous crew."

Pros: "The only perk was the complementary drink while flying."
Cons: "Basically everything. This was for a connecting flight. We had to go through customs and security twice at the Portland airport because the employees gave us wrong information. They offered us a shuttle to our gate since we were running late, and then the shuttle dropped us off on the completely opposite end of the airport. We literally had to sprint across the airport with 15 minutes until our plane left, and go through security our second time where the employees were rude and not even slightly helpful. While on the plane the crew was less than friendly and short with passengers. After we landed, someone from our group was also missing their bag and was informed it was left behind in Oregon and wasn't even loaded onto the plane. Seriously the worst airport, worst crew, and worst flying experience I've ever had."

Cons: "The jumbled mess of a line getting on the plane. I would much prefer an organized line without crowding"

Pros: "Love everything!"
Cons: "The only issue I had was that we were delayed about 40 minutes after being in the plane because the pilots weren't there and the AC wasn't working yet so we were roasting while waiting for them to arrive. The attendants were very apologetic and kind though, passing out water and helping guests be as comfortable as possible. The only issue I've ever come across with this airline and it was still handled with kindness and efficiency, so DONT let this discourage you, Alaska is great!!!"

Pros: "Crew was professional and courteous"
Cons: "Very noisy over the wing."

Pros: "The crew and staff were very friendly and the flight was smooth except for some turbulence which cannot be controlled. The Embraer 175 was a very comfortable aircraft."

Cons: "Ambient low lighting was pretty much non-existent in that old MD88."

Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"

Pros: "The crew was amazing had no problems!"
Cons: "Nothing had a great experience!"

Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day. I bought the whole international business ticket to Peru together, I don't understand why Delta consider my first portion not part of my international ticket!"

Pros: "I liked that military boarded first."
Cons: "I think disabled US Veterans should board with active duty and retired military"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality.

Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and so was the flight. No entertainment or food on short flights, that should be a N/A"

Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Cons: "Late flt"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "No earphones for hearing the movies"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket from Costa Rica to Panama in order to comply with laws stating non-resident aliens must leave Costa Rica every 90 days for a period of at least three days. When it came time to return to Costa Rica, I understood that I had not purchased ANOTHER ticket to "prove" my intent to leave Costa Rica again three months in the future. I told the ticket agent I wishes to purchase a "fully refundable" ticket for a future flight, but she was (or professed to be) unable to assure me the ticket she was selling me was refundable. Upon return to Costa Rica, as before, immigration did not ask to see any such proof nor did they even ask my intentions. Isn't this called fraud? I did not need the ticket and, of course, in contacting Copa Airlines, I would have to return to Panama in order to even get a partial refund, which they won't guarantee. Not doing this again."

Pros: "We actually arrived earlier than schedule. Very impressed."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."

Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."

Pros: "Now you are giving away free muffins instead of insulting with a granola bar....THANK YOU FOR LISTENING"
Cons: "HOW CAN YOU NOT OFFER COFFEE ON AN AM FLIGHT??? THAT's CRAZY!!!"

Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"

Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"

Pros: "Ha mejorado la comida que dan en económica, en especial par un vuelo tan corto. Las tripulaciones colombianas son más amigables y orientadas al servicio que las panameñas. Panameños: Wake Up!!"

Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."

Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline, they will over sell their tickets and then expect you to give yours away. Boarding was messy."

Cons: "Flights were delayed"

Pros: "Staffs were so kind and professional."

Pros: "Agent issued boarding passes and luggage ticket but somehow didn't process payment. After waiting 4 hours for boarding we were denied entry into plane.

Cons: "Ticket counter personell"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Exhausted passengers were extremely angry. Each time the flight was delayed, the gate agents waited until the “Boarding in...” status screen reached 0 before announcing the next delay. Not cool."

Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."

Pros: "Direct flight Good crew"

Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent."
Cons: "For the fourth flight in a row with American the flight was late. I guess you don’t want to be in a hurry with this airline and have a long layover if you are connecting."

Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"

Cons: "80 minute delay"

Pros: "Flight was pleasant and all the crew members were courteous."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Cons: "Missed it."

Pros: "Great flight, no issues."
Cons: "Dont have any issues"

Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."

Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."

Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."

Pros: "Worst plane to travel 5 1/2 hours. Almost no legroom, very small seats."

Pros: "i dislike booking with British Airways and ending up flying with American Airlines, who is their partner. This usually happens from US>London, but happened both ways this trip. AA flies outdated aircraft with old entertainment systems. Time for an upgrade! AA crew is okay, but BA crew is better. Might choose a different carrier next time."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I never got an email notification so they made me fly to New York and the flight was delay. One of the ladies from New York was really rude to me."

Pros: "It was quick and we had a smooth landing...."
Cons: "Upon arriving in Lima, Avianca 808 passengers became aware that none (zero, nada) of the bags were loaded onto the plane in Cusco. The customer service response to this airline error was sub-par. Passengers were told that the baggage issue was "weather-related", which is ludicrous even if the weather both in origin and destination had not been clear and sunny with no wind (it was). Info was taken on if passengers needed bags sent on to another destination or to a hotel but were told it would not get to Lima until the next morning (this was flight 808 landing just before 4 pm). Unclear why it couldn't be put on the next flight same day. And unclear what is happening to our bags now until the morning. No apology wasn't issued to passengers. Additionally we were delayed 15 mins due to "weather". I don't mind short delays but it was absolutely not weather-related. Weather is the default excuse to transfer fault away from themselves."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Reading knight on plane were so dim they were useless"

Pros: "Quick, easy boarding. Flight arrived, and left on time. Tickets were very affordable."
Cons: "How can I rate a 10 dollar sandwhich with a tiny bag of chips any higher? Entertainment? Non existent.. Wifi didnt work. I made several calls ahead of time to check if i can carry alcohol in 50 mL labelled bottles, sealed. I was told yes. Asked if i could drink them on the plane. Yes. Then I was told AFTER on plane consumption of my own alcohol that this was a federal offense. Epic mess up you guys.."

Cons: "Seat reassignment"

Pros: "Everything was great could have done nothing to improve wonderful set"
Cons: "Everything was great magnificent service no complaints"

Pros: "Seat were comfortable and I didn't feel claustrophobic."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice & quick! Made me feel safe even though it was icy!"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Boarding, no surprises, flight: comfortable take off, flight, landing, coffee, on-time, carry-on baggage"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all (had it connected but it was too slow)"

Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."

Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."

Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."

Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."

Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."

Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"

Pros: "That you provided a direct flight"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets on 10/30/2015 for an aisle seat. I check in the day before and no seat assignment, get to the kiosk and no seat assignment. I see the agent at the gate and she gives me a middle seat, I complained and she gave me an aisle seat. I get to my seat and someone is sitting in that seat, I go back to the front of the plane and wait to be assigned to another seat. The agent said they changed the plane that's why everyone lost seat assignments, 6 out of the 8 people that all booked together sat in their assigned seats. Never fly with them again."
