Pros: "Easy flight, no hassle, pleasant staff"

Pros: "It was easy to get to the gate. The gate crew called out seats A-E as Amazing, Brilliant, ... Excellent."
Cons: "I could have used more leg room."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 40 mins, then left 40 mins after scheduled even including the delay, no free in seat entertainment and the wifi was broken. Really not a fun flight overall. Also, please Alaska, get rid of that Cabernet Sauvignon that's sweeter than grape soda. Single worst wine I've ever tasted."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was comfortable even though in the last row..helped that there was no one in the middle seat."
Cons: "Under seat luggage space on aisle seat is smaller than middle and window so is difficult for carry on/leg room."
Cons: "Alaska airlines delayed the flights by at least an hour both ways SFO-Newark. The Alaska terminal at Newark is a very poor experience."
Pros: "Crew was nice and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Very inefficient delay of 5 hours without much empathy on improving the experience for all travelers."
Cons: "The entire flight crew was RUDE! Rolling their eyes at passengers constantly no matter what you asked them, shoving drinks at you, snatching trash from you, and rude. Very disappointed in Alaska!"
Cons: "Great service. Wish we flew Alaska both ways instead of United ☹️"
Pros: "The crew was IMPECCABLE. Peggy, John, and Kristin are true professionals with the utmost sincerity and kindness, that is extremely appreciated during travel."
Cons: "The Newark airport staff was rude and made us, as passengers, feel like we were an inconvenience to them as we were going through security. Not sure if this is just the “east coast” mentality, but we could have done without the attitude when just trying to get into the TSA Precheck line."
Pros: "Great crew, 2 drink services"
Pros: "The seat was fine and the seatbelt just barely fit."
Cons: "Saw a bedbug on my window!!! Wasn't notified that they were serving breakfast when I reserved one. No free wifi. No monitors in the seat to track plane progress and watch a movie. All of those either cost extra or were separate. Due to constant line I was forced to use the bathroom when I landed"

Cons: "Bathroom could always improve."
Pros: "Staff was kind"
Cons: "Flight Delay"
Pros: "They were helpful during our delay."
Cons: "Couldn’t download the Gogo app to watch anything."

Pros: "Great service and flight crew!"
Cons: "The turbulence was the only thing that sucked!"
Pros: "Entertainment offerings, except for lack of music."
Cons: "As usual, the seats are crammed together. They ran out of cups, so we were told to keep the ones we had. We did, however was to no avail. They did not make a second pass with water or other drink offerings on this 5 1/2 flight. The bathroom was a mess."
Pros: "The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system."
Cons: "The food quality could be improved with some more organic options."
Pros: "Flight from Newark to SanFran was smooth, and entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t overly welcoming (though certainly not rude at all), and boarding was rushed at the gate just to stand in huge line waiting to get on aircraft."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "They don’t give enough drink"
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: "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!"
Cons: "No comfort given to passengers despite 2.5 hr delay in leaving and another 1 hr on the ground after landing"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, so friendly and down to earth. Great customer service. Make flight attendant, Stan, I think, was great!"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order for the flight. Food and drink ordering didn’t work."

Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "I liked everything about this Airline the hospitality the service they treated you with respect my flight was on time and the times that I have flown Alaska Airlines we've have never had any delays, the crew acted very professional and we're very attentive. Check in was a breeze"
Pros: "Everyone was lovely and to be honest it was the best plane experience I’ve ever had. I’ll take a polite and friendly crew over silly marketing gimmicks any day, which is what it feels like you give your travelers."
Pros: "Flight was good but my first flight was cancelled which gave me a 6 hour layover in Seattle."
Cons: "6 hr delay and arrive at Newark at 7:30 am and have to fight traffic to get home"

Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about the flight."
Pros: "The seats and stowage were expected in comparison to a 737-800. Boarding time was fairly quick and organized."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was localized using a small portable microphone/speaker combo. Not great if you were sitting in another gate where seating was available. Food was pay as you go. Soft drinks and water were free. No in flight entertainment in the seat. They use GoGo Flight and rent tablets for 10.00 USD. The videos would skip and you will miss key elements of a plot. I was underwhelmed by this airline and will likely not take them again for a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska's crew and equipment continue to be top notch. Helpful and friendly at all times."
Cons: "Newark facilities are severely lacking: poor signage outside security and gate area too crowded leading to confusing mob-scene at boarding. Ground delay of 45 minutes after leaving gate. Gogo wifi connectivity was extremely frustrating: very slow and constantly disconnecting: made it impossible to actually use wifi for work related tasks."
Cons: "Limited choice of movies and my movie discontinued part way through and I did not have time to replay."
Pros: "I really did like that they checked on us several time and made sure we had enough to drink. Nice crew and all in all a pretty good flight."
Pros: "Was given two center seats when asked for other sets they moved us up to front so we had more room plus got off faster"
Cons: "Maintenance issues caused extensive delays. Ran out of food options by the time they got to my row."
Pros: "Far more overhead space and legroom than other airlines. Power outlets in every seat. Incredibly friendly and flexible staff. Barely ever late and, on late departure have even used extra fuel to fly faster to get there on time. Truly a top notch airline."

Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "Good pilot, helpful announcements"
Cons: "Sat in front of emergency row so couldn't recline"

Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "It was a good expiriance traveling with delta!"
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Cons: "Friendly crew and lots of good free snacks!"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Cons: "Delta delayed the flight from LAX to SLC, which subsequently made me miss the connecting flight from SLC to ORD. Completely unacceptable"
Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed overnight. With modern tracking, should have been notified that the luggage was not loaded on the same flight as me, eliminating my wasting 45 minutes at ATL realizing that my baggage was not coming and then having to queue to notify the airline that it had not come."
Cons: "The crew do not know precisely their proceedings. This cost me alot of money, effort, and time."
Pros: "Good i like i could watch movies from my phone"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "The staff really helped me out getting on standby so that I didn't have to wait for a 9 hour layover. Overall great experience and great staff."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Very satisfied. Great service"
Pros: "The movies were spectacular"
Cons: "Food was a bit plain"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."

Pros: "Great flight. Excellent pilot and the head steward or whoever was giving us update information was excellent."
Cons: "Would have liked a meal offered after a long delay."
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."

Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "Delta crew are always attentive."
Cons: "Snack quantity and choices."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "I hate that American Airlines doesn’t sign seats together even when there are spots available."

Cons: "No movie screens, no video screens, no charging options, no blankets, no pillows, no fun."

Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "The breakfast, no hot meal just sugary food."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "It got me home I was able to watch a movie They gave me the whole can of Coke Zero I got both the pretzels AND the cookies A321 aircraft, so power at every seat and good entertainment options"
Cons: "Ended up being in a row of three broad-shouldered men, so the "Preferred" seat I paid extra for was not very preferable I despise the practice of making some seats require additional $$$ - just so they can advertise lower fares. Flight was delayed, which is more common than I'd like They're stuffing planes fuller and fuller while offering fewer and fewer amenities at an ever-increasing price with multiple additional costs"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by almost three hours due to weather in Chicago, the crew was very helpful and the pilot kept us informed about the updates that he was receiving."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Pros: "Movie options"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed 8 hours and we were given vouchers for a hotel stay which was nice; however, a supervisor named Lauri in Phoenix stated "it was my dog, my problem" after my request for AA to reimburse me for a $50 pet fee at the hotel. What a nice thing to say to someone who paid $125 one-way to stick a dog under a seat."
Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
Pros: "A quick flight between the two cities."
Cons: "After we all boarded the plane, there was an issue to be resolved. This meant we were stuck on the plane, mostly in our seats, for an hour before we took off. This meant there were numerous people on our flight who either missed or had to run to their next flights."
Pros: "Food was delicious! Crew was very nice and friendly and plane was very clean."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "My flight was severely delayed."
Pros: "Crew were very hospitable. Seating and take off moved at a good pace"

Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had pain and I didn’t know if the crew had any pain medication."
Pros: "No positive to say"
Cons: "United delayed 6 hours and dropped from from connecting flight not accommodating me"
Cons: "No communication with airlines as far as flight information. The airlines sent me gate change which was incorrect and almost missed my flight"
Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."
Cons: "United once again shows it’s disdain for customer service and any sort of quality in their product. I don’t think I’ve had flight attendants who were less caring of providing anything more than what David Spade and Chris Farley provided in Black Sheep - “show em an instructional video and throw a bag of peanuts at em and we’ll be there in no time”. United is quickly becoming the - even more so underwhelming - Greyhound of the skies"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Couldn't sell us snack during regular service (we were at front of economy cabin) and had to wait to almost end of flight."
Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food Entertainment Boarding"
Cons: "Length of Flight"
Cons: "An extra agent who was rude was having passengers check size of their bags and we had to check our carry on that we had fit above on previous 3 flights. Her statement to us was : “If you don’t like it we’ll have you checked on to another flight tomorrow morning”. She seemed to stop passengers she could intimidate, I’m not used to being treated rudely by service providers! I’m sure they wanted to reduce the passenger loading time, but rudeness is not acceptable!"
Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Pros: "Had a granola bar at the customer service booth."
Cons: "There was an unexplained delay of over 3 hours, customer service booth at the airport was slow and didn't help at all. People had different information about the flight time. Take off took a long time. I was seated at the back row, aisle seat when there were plenty of other seats available; had to hold the lavatory door so it wouldn't open because it was broken and it stinked a lot. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Pros: "No delays. No problems"
Cons: "There should be more free food."
Cons: "Other than sitting in the airport for 4 hour and changing to 3 different gate and not getting in till 7:30. Need I say more"
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Pros: "Although the plane left SFO nearly 20 minutes late, we still arrived in Chicago early."
Pros: "United is always a great way to fly. The crew is always nice and even through my delayed flight back to Vegas the captain stood between the walkway and plane an apologies and spoke to everyone which was new for me. Thanks united flight 455 to Vegas from SFO 10:44.."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment to make the flight go by quicker and the comfortability of the seats."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Cons: "I understand the weather issue that occurred in ORD, but not letting the passengers know what was going on, except for delay, delay, delay was unacceptable, even after the weather calmed down. I will never fly United, thru ORD again"
Cons: "Plane didn't leave until 2.5 hours after expected departure time and we never got an actual reason why. This also made me miss my connecting flight so I had to spend an additional 6 hours in the airport waiting."
Pros: "Easy quick boarding - attendants seemed to watch and keep the misc items from going into the overhead."
Cons: "Being woken up to see if I wanted water or food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours to wait for crew that was delayed elsewhere as they were coming off duty and had to presumably fly them back to Burbank so our entire flight was held to wait for them."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Cons: "okay because it was short"
Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
