My husband is 6'3" and thus he never has knee room, but on Alaska Air he did 😀

Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."
Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was good. Food is good but expensive."
Cons: "Free or inexpensive food options would be nice. I also prefer when the screens are in the back of the seat and I don't have to stream on my phone or pay high prices to use data."
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and hospitable to the crew. I have been flying ASIANA many times and enjoy the flight as well."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tray tables very dirty, flight overbooked, hard to find gate agents"
Cons: "Better snacks premium members"
Pros: "Delayed.."
Cons: "Better communication to passengers. Gate agent didn't know why it us delayed."
Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"
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!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What have been nice if I was told that seat availability was nonexistent. I tried checking in each day without any information such as give it up you suck and you’re going to get the worst seed no better how much you try to avoid it…"
Pros: "The upgrade to premium was kool and worth it, if the flight wasn't filled. I thought it was a filled flight so I bought the upgrade. Then after purchase found out it wasn't filled, but it was OK cause the perks were AMAZING!"
Cons: "It was a short flight so not much to say that needs to be better."
Pros: "Loved the crew"
Pros: "The flight was great and the process from boarding to take off was wonderful. This was also a rescheduled flight after my other flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The seats cushions. They weren't the best. That's all."
Pros: "The flight attendants on all three of my flights were nice and helpful as well as all the employees at each airport I visited. The food was good and I had a great time."
Pros: "My bags were about 3 pounds heavier than allowed and she let me in with them. The crew is overall very nice and professional."
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 coffee was good and the crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The transfer was very rushed. I know it’s hard to control those things, but 45 minutes turned out to NOT be enough time between flights, especially because the first flight was taxiying for 20 minutes once we landed, which was an unanticipated delay."
Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"
Pros: "It got me to where I was going. Attendants were very good."
Cons: "Long flight delay. Seats were cramped."
Pros: "Good crew, early arrival, great plane (737-800)!"
Cons: "Hard landing (half point deduction) 9.5 ;-)"
Cons: "My connecting flight was late and they gave my seat away. So I’m not on the flight. Worst of all I was made to feel like it was my fault for being late"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. I liked that they boarded the back of the plane first. Also liked the updates from the flight attendants of what areas you were flying over at the moment. Was impressed with the landing as the pilot had a nasty crosswind to deal with that rocked the plane pretty good."
Cons: "I've been on a few flights recently with headrest screens for entertainment. This plane did not have that."
Pros: "I paid for seat. Hainan airlines charged me, but told me was not successful. I spent a lot of time and energy on it."
Cons: "At Xian Xiangyang Airport, I was asked to provid a address. They did not know how which is street name and which is city name. I taught them. They scanned with my green card, however, their system could not recognize green card. I was forced to sign an agreement to take all responsibilities if I can not go abroad."
Cons: "My seat was changed and I had to sit by a baby crying off and on the whole trip...should always let the customer know ahead of time"
Pros: "I'll let you know after we get on the one they pushed us to. Completely unacceptable service."
Cons: "We don't think that we will be flying an airline with such poor management teams in place again."
Pros: "The people did their job with excellence and ease. Made our flight comfortable."
Cons: "There was an unexpected gate change that made us have to run to the other side of the terminal. It would have been nice if the announcements had been just a bit clearer."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines provides good customer service...but I truly like Kayak because you offer the lowest prices. Thx!"
Cons: "It was all good. Flight left on time and no long line at the service counter when checking-in my luggage."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"
Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Weather and pilot delays kept us in Seattle about an hour and a half longer than we were supposed to be. 1120pm flight actually left at 1am. Tried to find an earlier flight once we knew it was delayed the first time. No other options and then it delayed again. Part of travel I suppose and the crew was nice, just was ready to be home."
Pros: "It was my first time using Alaska, this trip. I liked your airline overall! Clean."
Cons: "On my flight home to Detroit I was seated in the back. The flight attendants did nothing but gossip about other flight attendants (good and bad), their home life,etc. One rammed me with the cart & their body, woke me up, didn't even apologize. Just felt it was rude. I pay for my flight. I was trying to rest on my 4 hour flight before I had to tend to daughter who had cancer, I need the rest. And for what I paid, I should be able to. Not listen to Alaska's drama within."
Pros: "Liked the free entertainment app"
Pros: "Great customer service; comfy plane."
Pros: "It was a pleasant enough flight. Planes are just very crowded and cramped these days, so not really Alaska's fault."
Pros: "We loved the nonstop flight."
Cons: "Not much in directions/instructions. Waited in check in line only to be directed to another kiosk to print our paperwork, then wait in line again. Would have gone smoother if there were signs telling that."
Cons: "crowded with no room to sit anywhere and couldn't hear announcements outside immediate area. Immigration process too lengthy and almost missed flight with 2 2/12 layover in Seattle."
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "Easy flight. Boarding was fine and the crew were friendly enough. The steward didn't come and see me much and I think I had one little snack and one beverage."
Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and efficient. The seats were comfortable, but my wive got squeezed by a large person next to her. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Pros: "Boarded and left on time. Short flight so I can't speak to the food or entertainment offerings. Crew was pleasant although probably at the end of a long work day. This is no small thing for people who must deal with the public all day in a small space. It was appreciated!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Nice quick and efficient hop."
Cons: "Of the 4 my flights between SFO and SEA in the last 3 weeks exactly none departed on time."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "don't know if it was the time of the year but there was more open seats which meant we weren't crowded going to Seattle and coming back home to SLC. Great assistance, nice people, smooth flight."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Good flight. Landing a bit rough.

Cons: "Nothing--everything was great--perhaps the best service I've ever received."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
Cons: "Every time I fly American through Charlotte someone removes my protective cover from one of my suitcases and does not put it back and I lose an expensive cover and my suitcase gets scratched."
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Pros: "Overall a very good flight"
Cons: "Seemed disorganized getting on"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The pilot was too aggressive in regards to the take off and landing, landing was way too hard and fast"
Cons: "AA cancelled my direct flight, booked me on flights thru Dallas and did not notify me"
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Pros: "Landing and deplaning"
Cons: "Literally everything else"
Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The airline charged me $50 for my carry on even though they told me I could hate check it earlier. Apparently they changed their mind and I am $50 poorer. This is after being a loyal American card member for over 10 years. BS."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival - friendly crew"
Cons: "No own movie screen."
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"
Pros: "Full flight, crew worked timely"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Good, friendly, efficient service on flight. Cabin crew took special care to arrange for those with on-going flights and tight connections to be accommodated to make these tight connections."
Cons: "Tight seating and aisles."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting on a hot plane for 2 hours"
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Pros: "Red eye was great, home in no time. Great flight crew"
Cons: "Getting there, flight was rescheduled by AA, left not enough time to catch 2nd flight. Ran to that terminal, staff was curt. Rescheduled 2nd flight, had to check in my carry on, which made the people picking me up wait."
Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."
Cons: "Would at least like a choice of a snack instead of cookies I don't care for."
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
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."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Pros: "There was no warning until departure time that flight was delayed for two hour. Some other american flights were delayed much as four hour or more."
Pros: "LOWER PRICE, BUT NO FRILLS."
Cons: "SEATS FEEL FINE AT FIRST BUT AS THE TRIP WEARS ON THE SEATS GROW TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reason was given. I had to buy new flights on Southwest and ended up having to pay an extra $200 in order to get home for work on Monday."
Pros: "I like that I got to the destination safely."
Cons: "I lost my keys and not one single person has contacted me about my lost set of keys, even when I left my contact info with them."
Cons: "When it came to filling out our visa as we enter into Mexico, they handed out the paperwork as we were Landing I expected us to fill that out wild herring bounced around"
Pros: "Free snack and drink"
Cons: "Complicated check in process for basic economy. Sat on tarmac for 30 min for gate to open up. Crew was not knowledgeable. No food, no WiFi."
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Pros: "Wifi is expensive but at least it was available."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Very easy flight. Easy boarding and seating."
Cons: "Nan"
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: "great crew, easy flight"
Pros: "Crew were very hospitable. Seating and take off moved at a good pace"
Cons: "Entertainment was limited. Smaller plane / less space"
Cons: "Very late flight, seats bad"
Cons: "Waited on runway for 30 minutes before taking off. No explanation from cockpit. Waited another 10 minutes once landed before pulling into deplaning area. It was an uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and the flight was Short. Can’t say much about the food since the flight took only about over an hour. The crews were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "No positive to say"
Cons: "United delayed 6 hours and dropped from from connecting flight not accommodating me"
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: "Very little communication at the gate and 4 hours late. No offer of food vouchers or future travel vouchers."
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"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather"
Cons: "Second mechanical delay for me on this trip with United and the plane felt very old and rickity. Extremely delayed into Seattle until 2:40am"
Cons: "no legroom"
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: "Safe landing. Open seats."
Cons: "Late take off. No one to take my bag by the plane so it stayed on the ground and then they had to come in the plane to decide if each carry on stowed under was safe."
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "This was very different than most United flights I have been on. Even in Economy the seats were wide, well padded, with actual legroom. How I wish I had this plane on the 4 hour trip that preceded it. Way to go, United. Buy more of these planes."
Cons: "The flight was too short to say much about. Everything went very well."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rudeness of flight attendant Departure time changes Gate changes"
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: "Avoid flying with United at all cost!"
Cons: "United is the worst airline Terrible customer service !"
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: "Short flight"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "My flight was delayed in Portland due to " airport construction" at SF . My . connection was missed in SF causing a day long lay over. Meal voucher was denied by 2 different United customer service people..i don't consider construction out of human control ,like weather. Also ,I found it annoying that because a woman in front of me started crying over her missed I connection for an international trip, she was given a meal voucher.Agents were unfriendly and not sympathetic.Long line of customers with only 3 agents , but of course, they had to still use one for elite customers."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was way too hot on SFO-SBA, fortunately it was a short flight. Uncomfortable, narrow seats with sparse leg room. Kayak should add an 'N/A' to the survey for certain categories, e.g., entertainment which is not available on some flights."
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: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"
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."
Pros: "Automatically rebooked flight was changed free-of-charge to a different destination."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed, which was understandable due to inclement weather. Connecting flight, which was also United Airlines, was either uninformed of the delay, or indifferent. Myself and two other passengers arrived 2 minutes before the flight left, were told we could not board, and watched the plane undock from the gate and fly away."
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"
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."
Pros: "okay"
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."
Pros: "Flight cancelled going San Francisco so we had to drive"
Pros: "How fast the flight was"
Cons: "Delayed flight on the way back"
