Airline reviews

Pros: "Food vouchers."
Cons: "Being delayed almost 3 hours and getting in after 1 am."

Pros: "Apparently mechanical problems early in the day put our jet 89 min behind, but all involved worked the magic to achieve only a 60 minute late arrival. Loved the sparkling water (she was kind enough to make mine vegan even : - )."
Cons: "Late start and long taxi and long bus rides. BUT, the conversation with the new found friend was off the chain. I'm cool with the Sonoma means a taxi and bus portion - worth the fare."

Pros: "I liked it all"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Friendly"

Pros: "Coffee Starbucks"
Cons: "Passenger seat 25D was swearing all the time"

Pros: "on time, somewhat"
Cons: "very cramped seats; are my husband and I profiled on airline flights? why are we always placed exactly over the wings or in the rear of the plane, with all the babies? we are senior citizens and flying three to five hours with babies crying all around us is not a pleasant flight. So we up graded to first class on this return flight. Is that the only way to get out of being profiled to sit in the rear of the plane with the crying for three hours?"

Pros: "The flight was thankfully very short!"
Cons: "Crappy service, slow boarding, lack of control of boarding passengers at gate, plane was not as clean as normally expect for this airline."

Pros: "Excelente servicio"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."

Cons: "The unexpected turbulence"

Pros: "They're organized, staff is super friendly and seats are clean and comfortable."

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."

Pros: "The crew was super nice, from when we boarded the plane to when we got off. (:"

Cons: "We had to wait over 2 hours delayed our flight claimed it was mechanical reasons then change it saying it was paperwork they need to do so we would be able to make the flight wasted almost 3 hours I was sleeping the crew wakes me up for drinks like really !!bad experience!!!!"

Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"

Pros: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "The 30 min delay in takeoff"

Pros: "There was no entertainment since was a shorter flight but the staff was amazing, comfy seats, good selection of food and excellent coffee."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Pdx tsa...very rude"

Pros: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"

Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"

Pros: "George Yoo"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early. The crew was friendly and offered drinks on an hourly basis. The egg scramble breakfast was pretty tasty; surprisingly it was made with real ingredients not an ounce of foam egg insight."
Cons: "Nothing worth complaining about."

Pros: "Crew was fine and great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we had to sit on the runway after boarding for about 45 minutes before takeoff. Arrived to LA over 1.5 hours late."

Pros: "Flight was okay, uneventful until landing"
Cons: "After landing at LAX we were made to sit on tarmac for 45 min because there was no gate available. This isn't rocket science folks, we were a scheduled flight coming into a major hub. Disappointed."

Pros: "Being stra"

Pros: "I liked the captain's communication about the delayed departure and how he made up time to get us to the destination on time."

Pros: "Early take-off, friendly staff"
Cons: "everything was cool"

Pros: "From reservations to the actual flight and crew of the airline was great. I enjoy flying Alaska and recommend flying with them."

Pros: "The whole air experience is so egregious now, I'm committed to first class and only a few airlines. Just can't do it anymore. I'm not a herd animal and I don't want to do it their way. Period. On Air Alaska it's a clean cabin, they leave on time, they maintain the planes. Amen."

Pros: "Leaving on time, arriving on time."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, too small, even for a small person like me. Person next to you takes up 1/4 of your seat."

Pros: "very little except the price"

Pros: "Staff very warm."
Cons: "Food selection paltry. Vodka from Seattle? Hopefully you will take Virgins food selections and liquor. Alaska can use an overhaul. Also aisle too tight."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a six hour layover in LAX and our luggage still didn't get transferred to our next flight and so our first 3 days in Ecuador was without luggage!"

Pros: "Pilot told us it would be 10 mins really took an hour to taxi and park plane."
Cons: "Pilot lying"

Pros: "Very punctual! We arrived on the exactly time as estimated."
Cons: "Very poor snack options"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Almost everything."

Cons: "2 1.5 hour delays for things that Delta messed up"

Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."

Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"

Pros: "really nice cervices"

Pros: "No lines at the baggage drop off. No lines at TSA. Efficient and organized boarding. Seat area was clean. No delay, friendly energetic flight attendants."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence on the last 20 minutes of the flight. Captain had warned us. Nothing they can control though."

Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."

Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."

Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."

Pros: "The snack was nice."

Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."

Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"

Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"

Cons: "Short 30 minute delay; arrived 5 minutes late. 45 min flight doesnt allow for any food service."

Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."

Pros: "The baby"

Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."

Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."

Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"

Pros: "On Time"

Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "The management was horrible, if you already knew the pilot was working extensive hours you could have had another pilot on standby just in case... I'm sure it would have been a lot cheaper and less of an inconvenient for everyone on the flight..."

Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"

Cons: "Late taking off"

Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."

Cons: "Jet airways sucks"

Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"

Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"

Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."

Pros: "This was a code share flight on a delta ticket but a virgin airline, the entertainment was great with the seat back selection, the seat comfy and the staff friendly."
Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"

Pros: "On-line entertainment was ok. It would have been better if they could notify you more clearly in advance about how to download the information you need and to let you know that earphones are not provided."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Flight attendants were not particularly service oriented. For example, when I asked for a glass of water the flight attendant sighed and then got it. So, the result was fine but the manner was not friendly."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Simple boarding, decent seats. No frills but much more value and comfort than other regional/LCCs e.g. Spirit, Frontier, etc."

Pros: "Flight staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "Unable to check-in online and the flight to my flight was delayed, to and from my destination."

Pros: "Sitting in an exit row allowed for lots of leg room and boarding early with the first class passengers. The price of the flight was very reasonable."
Cons: "Not being able to recline my seat, and no fancy in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Awesome prices. T,he gate crew was informative and helpful with the flight status and early check in procedures. Good food choices and variety, and prices weren't terribly out of line"
Cons: "Flight crew didn't give many updates for sights or geography, if at all. Seats are probably the smallest i've seen, the the middle seats don't recline at all which is uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "Shorter flight so no entertainment."

Pros: "As always, Sun Country staff are wonderful!"

Cons: "it would be easier and faster if they started loading from the back first, this way it wouldn' t hold up the people that have seats up front and are in the way of the people that have to go to the back seats. I t' s o k for the 1st glass people to load first and parents with small children too"

Pros: "We were delayed leaving by an hour and got no updates until 30 minutes in, at which point we were advised "paperwork was waiting to be completed". Then when we finally arrived there was no gate for us to unboard from for at least another 20 minutes."
Cons: "No communication of delay as well as why not use one of the 5 empty gates available in a situation like that?! My boyfriend had to waste gas and circle the airport nonstop"

Pros: "On time boarding. Nice flight. Plane looked new."
Cons: "Three men in my row were 220 lbs. and more. Made for tight seating. The food and entertainmemt sections did not apply on my flight."

Pros: "Very easy flight. Very lovely crew. Very pleasant experience. I'd do it again. My excellent marks are based on the expense. There are more impressive first class offerings on other carriers, but for the price, these people are doing a terrific job."

Pros: "It was timely."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no snacks, no food, no entertainment"

Cons: "I like to have head phones for free to listen to Air Traffic or music. This flight didn't have that"

Pros: "Seats were fine, had a decent single serving friend."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour with no real apologies. Extremely rough landing not even at the gate, had to get herded onto busses to take a 20 minute bus ride to get to the terminal and got no explanation as to why it happened or what was going on."

Pros: "Prompt, friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Had an aisle seat."

Pros: "All employees were super friendly and helpful"

Pros: "I've flown Sun Country in the past & have always had a great experience. This time was no different! 10 min prior to boarding, we were upgraded to first class!! Couldn't have been a more relaxing flight. Would definitely consider flying first class with them again. Thanks, Sun Country!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Jodi, the head flight attendant serving our cabin, was friendly, attentive, professional, and is a huge asset to Sun Country and their business model and mission. She promoted the highest customer service and said she'd been with Sun Country for over 20 years. Impressive! She took our flight from enjoyable to exceptional."

Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "No wifi, no free snacks for preferred seating"

Cons: "No conplimentary snacks like peanuts pretzels or cookies. No built in screens. Have to pay for personal video players."

Pros: "The cost of the flight"

Pros: "I would like wifi on the plane!!! Southwest has free wifi and you can watch all kinds of tv programs...it's nice on a long flight!"

Pros: "That we landed"
Cons: "The plane was late getting there and then we boarded and waited an hour to leave. That plus five babies who cried And screamed the whole time. No utensils with my food, batbtoom disgusting. Pilots flew ok and landed ok."

Pros: "Everyone was nice, great leg space , comfortable, very helpful, reasonable baggage prices."
Cons: "Great experience until picking up baggage. My stroller was broken and 3 of my bags were destroyed!! To make matters worse there was no one to help.. No one at arrival desk, no one to be found by anyone in the airport!! I'm nervous how/if we will be compensated for our stuff."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time, in this day and age that seems to be about all you can hope for (also our checked bag was not lost). When checking at the airport in my wife and I had our seats moved together in the exit row for free."
Cons: "For or flight to LA the plane was not at all full but when I tried to check in 23 hours ahead of time the only seats listed as available that were together were in upgrade area's ($15 a seat). We figured when arriving at the airport they could fix this for free but was definitely strange..."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful customer service across the board - check in was a breeze, flight staff very attentive and cheerful, pilot was amiable and gave us a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The seats and rows are incredibly compacted - unless you're a small person you won't be able to move much at all. The aisles are the narrowest I've ever seen - if you sit on the aisle expect to be bumped repeatedly. There's also much less room under the aisle seats for putting bags/personal items."

Pros: "The crew was great. Courteous and attentive. Liked the selection of food that included healthier options like the fruit plate."
Cons: "I am really displeased that there is a charge for baggage. With the price of fuel so low, I find if appalling that airlines charge even for the first bag."

Pros: "Very accommodating Wonderful staff Comfortable seating (exit row) Funny: Willy Wonka on the exit row instructions!"

Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. Would always prefer to fly Sun Country for LAX to MSP."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to a maintenance issue. Didn't mind that. Would rather be safe than sorry. As a traveler, I would have appreciated knowing what the maintenance issue was. When we landed, there was no place to pull in so we had to wait on the tarmac for a while after an already delayed flight. Not Sun Country's fault - that's just the reality of LAX."

Pros: "We made it there"

Pros: "The layover was good."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful. I loved how they came through twice with drinks."
Cons: "Where was Sky Mall magazine??! The aisle seat was uncomfortable because I couldn't rest my outside arm on the armrest without people constantly running into it."

Pros: "crew was awesome and very accomidating!"
Cons: "the video players offered should have ability to play music"

Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "One bathroom but had to take smaller plane due to medical emergency. Could give peanuts!!"

Cons: "They charge for snacks. There is not a lot of leg room."

Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"

Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Pros: "Horrible !!!"
Cons: "Be on time !!!!"

Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"

Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"

Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"

Cons: "Late on hour"

Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."

Cons: "Delayed takeoff by 1 hour waiting for a crew to fly in. Upon crew arrival, new crew member states that there are standby crew available and he's not sure why they didn't call on them. Then we continued to wait for 3 more passengers who were delayed and now had a chance to board our flight. Once landed, gate was occupied by yet another flight running late so we waited for 15 minutes to get to the gate."

Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"

Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Because of airline delay and increased immigration wait time, we missed our flight. No compensation but we were connected to another flight to Sac. 1-1/2 hours later, which worked out okay, except we got home very late at night."

Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"

Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "The crew managed to serve a glass of water. No snack, not even a bag of pretzels. They managed to collect trash four times. Again, they barely acknowledged the passengers. What happened to customer service?"

Pros: "Arrived early"

Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"

Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"

Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"

Cons: "Flight was very delayed"

Cons: "The long delay was terrible"

Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."

Pros: "Dunno"
Cons: "Dunno"

Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."

Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"

Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."

Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"

Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."

Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"

Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"

Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."

Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"

Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"

Pros: "Price was right"

Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."

Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"

Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"

Cons: "That there is no internet"

Cons: "The flight got late and then were told its early And I literally had to run terminals after Finding out that my luggage was still missing. It's been two days and I haven't got my luggage yet"

Pros: "Flight was on time and I loved going through US customs in Ireland, so that it made my connection to my USA flight a breeze."
Cons: "Too many crying babies and children. (Flights need a section for young children and infants.) I can handle a 2 hour flight, but not 6+ hours of constant noise) I did not use it, but the entertainment system kept locking up and the flight attendants needed to reboot. If I had been depending on this entertainment it would not have been good. The flight attendants did not come through the cabin enough to pick up trash."

Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"

Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."

Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."

Pros: "Nothing delay"
Cons: "Mahor delay and tarmac issue refund immideate"

Pros: "Quick flight, beautiful day, interesting company sitting next to me very pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and they were offering vouchers for later flights, wasn't a bad thing, though, I'd have done it."

Pros: "It was excellent"
Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "Consistenty"

Pros: "Nice and smooth. There was an issue with the plane but they transitioned us quickly and I was impressed that we were hardly delayed."

Pros: "The seats on the E175 were more comfortable than those on other RJs."

Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"

Cons: "Our seats and boarding passes were given to two other people! How can someone else board a plane with our names on the boarding passes?!"

Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."

Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delays delays delays"

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. Flight attendant has a rock star!! Did her job above and beyond what I have seen in the past."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Convinunce"

Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"

Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."

Pros: "Getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "Hate LAX. Hate the empowered TSA. LAX seems to be forever under construction. Avoid if possible."

Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."

Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"

Cons: "not offered any break on food or beverage, or wifi."

Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."

Pros: "Flight from LA to Sacramento was one hour delayed! No heartfelt apology, almost like this happens all the time."

Cons: "We're treated like livestock!"

Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."

Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."

Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "The price, fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Both flights had mechanical problems, causing delays, the wait for luggage back in New York, over25 minutes"

Pros: "Everyone was kind and professional."
Cons: "There was one guy helping me with my boarding pass who was rude."

Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"

Pros: "Got to check 2 carry on pieces for free because too many people had carry on bags. We had paid to check one bag and would have to pick it up anyway, so checking extra pieces was not a problem and actually was very much appreciated."
Cons: "15 minutes late in taking off because an airline associate failed to close out a screen on the computer. It took too long to figure out the problem."

Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Enjoyed it"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed connecting flight. Desk attendant was rude about it. Not a frequent flyer so never had that happen before. Says free wifi on flight but passengers couldn't connect. I won't fly on this airline again."

Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"

Cons: "I chose to fly United only due to the fact that they had more convenient departure times. I arrived at the airport two hours before my boarding time and the ground crew still somehow managed to not get my bag on the plane. They did get it on the next flight but now it's stuck in Chicago. I called the baggage claim hotline number I was provided and they could not give me an estimate of when or where my bag will be. They told me to call tomorrow and hung up on me! So now I am on a two week vacation without luggage. Absolutely terrible service."

Cons: "They lost our luggage"

Pros: "I surprisingly had a great trip. United has always been my least favorite airline when I get to choose, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the trip went."
