Cons: "Boarding the plane then getting off to board a different plane 40 minutes later only to take off an extended hour to then idling on the runway for another 30 before take off made me miss my shuttle appointment to whistler subsequently missing a wedding I was attending."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was on schedule."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating during the long delays boarding and deplaning:"
Cons: "Delays were extremely long to the destination and upon arrival no gate was available for our plane which caused another long delay."
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin arrived late, we missed our connection to the Alaska airlines. Since the arrival from Dublin came into terminal 1 and our Alaska airlines flight was in terminal 6 we would most likely have not made our connection anyway. Since we had a 3rd party booking they could do nothing."
Cons: "When we landed they parked the plane a foot from where it needed to be. We all had to be reseated while they moved the plane a foot. It still didn't seem to work. It took 20 minutes before the door was opened to deplane."
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were very kind and super attentive!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very good on such a busy flight. And the seats were comfortable with enough leg room."
Cons: "The updates at the boarding gates were late. The way the seat assignment are generated needs improvement since I needed to get in line again after checking in online for my seats."
Pros: "The crew was very happy and welcoming."
Cons: "We were late and I missed my flight. I was told Flt 452 from LAX to JFK is notoriously late. Also, there could have been more updates about our delayed arrival."
Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Cons: "Having a gate at ORD. Waited on runway for 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "We had a delay in departure"
Cons: "Movie options and better food variety"
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Pros: "Excellent boarding arrangements. Great selection of entertainment shows. Crew were good hospitable."
Cons: "Seats were too bad. Half the seats on the flight were not able to be pushed back. Uncomfortable journey. Food selection wasn't the best. Also the quality could be questioned."
Cons: "gate change and no display text on digital display that the updated gate was indeed the flight to SFO"
Cons: "No USB port to fit my ear buds so 6 hours with no audio/video To cold and was declined any blanket froze!!! Unfriendly stewardess both directions who didn’t care to collect trash:SMILE or care I was cold with no movie"
Pros: "Several great movie options."
Cons: "No free, little packs of food, and very small options list that was overpriced."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "I was on a red eye, upgraded to first, but there was no service almost at all on the flight. It was freezing, yet they had NO blankets or pillows, they brought only a little hummus, never checked in again the entire flight. No breakfast, no coffee, no roll, nothing served. But, no blankets in FIrst? that in itself is a FIRST for me!"
Cons: "No service in first, no blankets, uncomfortable seats on A320. Phone dropped inside the seat, could barely retrieve it from inside the seat."
Pros: "Very warm and pleasant crew with great service while the ticket price is reasonable."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport 5 minutes (NO more than that) after the one hour check in time to fly international going to Mexico. We were told we had to wait in line to speak with someone to print a boarding pass. There was an extremely long line with only two employees helping. We then asked if we could get our money back being that if someone has specially helped us with our case only being 5 minutes late to check in, but they declined. We had to book an entirely different flight and still have not gotten our money back. It was very stressful and unprofessional and had someone actually helped us, we would’ve arrived at our destination at the proper time we worked so hard for. I know my boyfriend and I weren’t the only people with his problem because two other families ran into the exact same avoidable problem. It felt very unprofessional. It ruined a familys vacation and caused the poor children to cry because of the lack of accommodation. We would love our money back but not sure you guys will even do so. Very disappointing."
Cons: "I didn't make it because the flight to LAX was late and despite being told by an Avianca employee there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Small, hard seats."
Pros: "Flight Attendant Bob was so sweet and helpful to me and my daughter. I would still be on the plane struggling to get off if he hadn’t helped us load and unload. Thank you Bob!"
Cons: "Well, planes are always pretty tight, but at least they give you a USB port."
Pros: "Getting to my destination on time. No lost luggage. The crew was very good about finding me when left camera behind on plane. Excellent service. I travel on Alaska and. Irvin America frequently and have never had an unpleasant experience on either one. They are always pretty much on time."
Pros: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "Crew was great. I was carrying a tuxedo and a suite and one of the crew offered to take them from me and hang them instead of folding them in the overhead. Everyone was very please t."
Cons: "1. Entertainment was a small tablet that you rent to see movies. I can’t believe it has reached that extent. 2. Food. We ordered a chicken sandwich and the veggies that go in the sandwich came separately in. ZIPLOCK bag. The shredded carrots were all over the place. Really bad idea."
Cons: "The usual: poor seating and no food/beverage service gratis. Compared to the majors United, American, and Delta, Alaska service and helpfulness are outstanding."
Pros: "I love the upgrade option to Premium class and the snack box that comes with it is great! Staff was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Only one thing: when using the kiosk to get my boarding pass and upgrade, it doesn't specifically state to insert and quickly remove my credit card, so I'm waiting waiting waiting and nothing is happening and I start over and still nothing, so I go wait in line at the desk that solves problems only to learn that small detail and then the clerk said he couldn't take care of it for me and sent me back to the kiosk! What a pain! I'm sure I'm not the only one this has happened to. How hard is it to put clear instructions on the screen? please and thank you!"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines continues to do it rite! To my surprise, while checking in my 60 lb bag of surfboards, I was only charged $25, not the already low price of $75 I am usually charged. This new discounted price enabled me to save $100 round trip on board charges. Unlike other airlines that charge $100 Per surfboard, Alaska Airlines has implemented a program that serves the sports enthusiasts. From surfers, golfers, hunters, fisherman, and so on. Our gear goes with us for a fantastic price. Also, the food is actually pretty tasty too & the flight attendants treat you well."
Cons: "I wish there were more meals. My wife and I tried to order items but they were often sold out."
Pros: "Arriving in Seattle my bag was waiting for me at the claim area. After 45+ years of flying around the world that was a first. But something happened before we took off. The gentleman in the seat in front of me had packed some oxygen bottles in his bags and a handler came onboard to address this. He was polite and very understanding that the man was meeting a cruise ship in Seattle and needed them as life support. The handler took an address from him and said he would take the bottles to Fedex near the airport and sent them to him. And the passenger could send him the money later! I thin k the handler's name was Bob. He needs a commendation foe going the extra mile for a passenger! Find him and buy him dinner."
Cons: "Having to get my seat assignment at the gate just increases my anxiety with the entire flying experience. Stop it. I get there 1.5 hours early to wait at the gate uncertain of weather I will be flying that day. As usual with all airlines seat comfort was non existent."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Cons: "Got to the gate about 20 min before flight. The gate attendant got a bad customer service attitude when I questioned why we couldn't board flight. We were a little late because our flight from Taipei was an hour late. She did schedule us at 6 am on another flight which made an interesting (painful) night with 3 boys under the age of 6. Nowhere did it state that boarding was closed 30 minutes prior to the flight. Bad experience - late night ...small kids... no food or drink available...surley gate person..no notice of the boarding policy...just a very bad experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from LAX to PDX. Also there were a handful of people (myself included) that had to catch a tight connection in PDX. The flight attendants should have announced for people to stay seated upon landing to let those few get through that had only a few minutes to make the next flight, but they did not so it took 15-20 minutes to disembark which was very frustrating."
Pros: "This was our first time using Alaska Airlines and they were great! Checking in online was easy. Flight attendants and other staff were friendly and seemed to have your best interest in mind. My husband and I had a 20 hour layover in LA coming back from Costa Rica and we asked if we would have to pay another fee to recheck our bag for the second flight. They were very understanding and waived the fee since our overnight stay in LA was technically a layover and we had previously made the whole reservation for both flights at once using their company. Overall we liked our experience with Alaska and would definitely use them again!"
Cons: "My things got stolen and I filed a complaint but no one got back to me!!!!"
Cons: "Another NA airline. No frills what so ever. Almost as good as a bus ride."
Pros: "Flight staff were friendly"
Cons: "Check in process was an inconvenient Staff at the Elite counter IN LAX does not know how to check in late bags If you check in with the Elite counter at LAX they may mark your bag as a "voluntary separation" IF THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHECK IN A LATE BAG Seats on airplane were small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Ground and in flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late because of a suddent issue with the designated pilot's health but then they also gave me a good discount coupon."
Cons: "Got in later than expected into Seattle, so had to rebook my shuttle and delay it an hour. Not awful but certainly an inconvenience."
Pros: "Fairly expedient"
Cons: "The following day travel experience via Alaska"
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Pros: "Loved not having to pay for bags. That is a great thing!!!"
Cons: "would like better options for something to eat, that does't require a payment of some sort."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and boarding and unboarding was swift."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable and not much leg room."
Pros: "I'm not normally an avid traveller, but in this last week, I've had the opportunity to fly on four different airlines. By far, the best airline ive flown upon was alaska. customer service was so friendly from start to finish, the employee who checked in our luggage (who was incredibly professional with an very frustrated guest behind me in line, while managing to not alienate my wife and i), ro the flight attendants who were prompt, responsive, and efficient in hydrating the passengers. My wife is uncomfortable with flying, and their demeanor with every aspect of their work made her feel safer and, at least, a little bit more relaxed. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing, every point of my intreactions with Alaska Airlines were excellent or better."
Delta terminal 2 gate 24B would not allow us to board the plane 3 minutes after main2 zone was called. We were forced to take a flight 4 hours later, waiting at the airport. And the female check in lady at the gate was rude and completely unhelpful. Delta service is poor at LAX
Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"
Cons: "If they had orange juice lol"
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "Great crew, comfy seats and efficient boarding!"
Cons: "Every time I fly from Brazil to USA and back I always can carry to luggage of 23kg in American Airlines but this company only allows 1 luggage and they charge me 90 dollars for the second one that’s bad"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Gave the option to chose seat"
Pros: "Friendly flight staff, on time service."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to select my seat 2 weeks out from flight. Was told by multiple delta employees I can only change at the gate. Was unable to change seat and ended up getting downgraded to middle seat middle row. Rude flight staff that barked at the passengers"
Cons: "Delayed for an hour because of changing tire"
Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"
Cons: "Terminal 2 security at LAX is awful and inefficient Also plane had a malfunctioning switch and it took them 1.5 hrs to fix while we are on the plane. This was 1.5 hrs delay on a 58 minutes flight. :("
Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."
Pros: "Crew ok . Seat not so comfy"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at LAX and even though we made it to the gate to fly out on our connecting flight they had given our tickets away and booked us on a flight 5 hrs later. They told us our bags would be transferred. They werent and now both my daughter and i are starting out a dream vacation with no l"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Cons: "the flight was delayed by about 90 minutes and the gate was changed two times."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "Great entertainment options and food selection, just wish they had the selection they advertised..."
Cons: "Booked the flight and paid extra for the main cabin selection to guarantee sitting with my husband. Got to the airport, app had already pre-checked us in and my seat selection was changed! Not sure why I paid extra when they were just going to chpose my seat anyways (DL 2222 on 11/6) Hoping my return flight this not have this happen..... Will be calling Delta when we get home."
Cons: "Very slow to load and unload. Not sure how I always get a middle seat in the far back. Basic economy is basic."
Pros: "The bag service"
Cons: "The flight delays"
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."
Pros: "Once inside the plane every thing was excellent. Very confortable. Great costumer service."
Cons: "They changed the gate it was unclear and hard to find someone to tell us where to go. Once we found someone the lady yelling at everyone where to go was very rude and rushed. Once we found the second gate the crew at the desk was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."
Cons: "Overall the flight was good. It would be nice to see if we are Lincoln and Wi-Fi and the greatest selection of movies to its offerings."
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "No puedo opinar mucho del proceso de abordaje, ya que para el procedimiento de ingreso a la terminal fue bastante tardado. Pero la atencion por parte del personal fue bastante amable, las bebidas fueron abundantes y justas."
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The snack variety"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken :("
Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Cons: "My row didn't have sound on our entertainment system. I was able to move to another seat and they did compensate the couple that was next tho new with beverages and miles to their account."
Cons: "Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "The USB connection at my seat worked; it often does not, so this was an improvement. The turkey sandwich was moist and delicious."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and we didn't get charged for the blankets, as in other airlines, though it would have been nice not have needed them, the plane felt colder than 70 degrees!"
Cons: "Longer delay occurred when another passenger got into an argument with staff. It took soooo long for security to come to fix the situation so we could continue boarding. We were also packed in like sardines. I would pay more for more room, though business and first class are available, they're way too much."
Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."
Pros: "Service was ok food also crew was friendly"
Cons: "Check in bags and carry on policy and space on airplane is stupid"
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: "Boarding was on time, free entertainment, choice of free snack with our drink, free extra serving of complementary coffee, and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing in this experience"
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Seats are abhorring, No space for knees. Horrible food."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Flight came with free entertainment. That's a plus."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Check in was very good. The seats can be more space."
Cons: "I think the breakfast should be better."
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Crew overall was very good and attentive."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Pros: "That I arrived on time"
Cons: "Without any kind of entertainment, Some soft music will be better than the aircraft noise.."
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, and movie selection was great. Flight got was smooth, too."
Cons: "The Tiny seats. I’m smaller (5’7 135 lbs) and was sitting next to a regular sized man (6’ 175lbs) and we had no room."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Cons: "I missed all my flights and my bags because of a stupid delay made by the airline."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Poor communication with passengers during the process."
Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."
Cons: "Terrible parking, had to book a later flight an extra 75.00 for my bag."
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."
Pros: "seat was comfortable. flight almost on time food was poor"
Cons: "food was poor"
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."
Pros: "Price, new plane, interactive system"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on and pay for it. I was not charged on my way to lax or my trip to Hawaii. Sad. And person was rude"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, no problems or hassles. Seat reclined and was reasonably comfortable. Left early, arrived even earlier."
Cons: "Crew was more robotic than human, which is bexoming a trend on AA. No smiles, no acknowledgment, just doing the job of handing out food and picking up trash. No personal touch whatsoever. Food was subpar for an AA flight, especially international. Entertainment system has many defects and problems, for example "search" is useless. Uninspiring and forgettable film choices as well. The knob to control air flow was broken which made it chilly. To finish as I started, a more engaged and pleasant crew could have made all the other things more palpable and acceptable. They were just too cold, like the temperature in the cabin and distant."
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Easy and customer service at lax was awesome and very helpful!!!"
Cons: "The 45 minute bag time that's it may or may not be able to go 45 mins within boarding ."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "The chicken dinner was not good. Also the sound on seat computer was not working and on a 11 hour flight it is terrible."
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "The TV entertainment built in the seat."
Cons: "The baggage check in process, the 6 hour delay of my flight, wasting the majority of my day in the airport due to plane inspection. De-planing after boarding. The unorganized line/crowd during the boarding process."
Pros: "As a bonus, I was bumped up to Business class on the way back because the flight was full. The lie-flat seat was amazing and food in Business really was "next level.""
Pros: "Once I managed to get to my connecting terminal which was an adventure in itself, the original plane we were to fly on was having maintenance issues. The ground crew worked quickly to get a different plane and moved us to an adjoining terminal."
Cons: "LAX. The airport is just a pain with long lines for everything, although staff try very hard to help you get where you need to be"
Pros: "New plane with leather like seats and good entertainment system."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Pros: "Upgraded from Business to First on a transcend A321. Seats amazing, hard product is just superb on these planes. Crew good but a bit animatronic as always with AA."
Cons: "I could not change the flight with less payment so I missed the flight and booked another one."
Cons: "It cost me $86 dollars to supposedly upgrade my seat to an exit row with tons of leg room. Granted there was plenty of leg room but the seat was extra narrow to give room for an emergency exit if necessary. I'm not huge but I barely fit in the seat. It was an uncomfortable squeeze which of course got worse as the flight continued. I complained to an attendant that the seat was too small and he had no remedy. If I was a few pounds heavier it would have been impossible. You'd think they would warn a customer of the narrower seat. It's so obvious that it's all about profit for the airlines which sickens me."
Honestly the rows are too close together. I am 5’8” and it’s all I can do to lean forward and pull my backpack from under the seat in front of me. Otherwise everything was fine. No hiccups.
Pros: "Crew was great. Flights were smooth. Good beverages and snacks."
Cons: "The seats have no leg space."
Cons: "Had to wait on the runway for one hour to get a gate upon arrival. Should not have departed early and told passengers that there would be a gate available, only to have to wait and circle around several times waiting for a gate."
Cons: "Gate attendants"
Pros: "Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen"
Cons: "Long delay due to weather. Got screwed by a change fee for a mistake I made on my original booking, no consideration. Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen-website didn't request to download or activate DRM plug"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Should have demarcations for groups as they are boarding. A rude costumer with his wife who’s group was obviously not was called to board the airplane( I heard him say we’ll jus go with this group since we are next) purposefully cuts me off and was rude and obnoxious about it."
Cons: "Quick and easy. Great crew."
Pros: "the flight attendant was a little snippy with a couple of the passengers"
Cons: "need to change up the snacks a bit. Maybe offer 2 options? And they are so tiny"
Pros: "This was a horrible experience from the onsite until the landing."
Cons: "Better communication from the beginning and feedback about what was actually going on would have been helpful."
Cons: "Couldn’t control the temperature. It was freezing then burning up."
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, everything else very standard"
Cons: "Seats are horribly uncomfortable and hardly recline, WiFi did not work most of the time even though I paid $12 for it. Overall United is highly unimpressive these days"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, i was stuck in the airport for hours, i missed my meeting because of the first flight. I understand one flight being delayed but two? Are all of your flights like this? Because if so, i cannot rely on united Airlines"
Pros: "Left on time. Employees were competent and friendly, and kept us appraised of things at DCA and in flight (turbulence, etc)."
Cons: "Not much I didn’t like."
Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""
Pros: "Liked that it wasn’t the smallest regional jet that flies to Springfield"
Cons: "There was a delay because inbound plane was late. Didn’t like that jetway was very cold when we were waiting for our gate checked luggage. My gloves and hat were in the gate checked luggage."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 hours & little done to compensate travelers. No in-seat entertainment on a 2.5+ hour flight. I expect this from a budget airline, not United."
Cons: "Small old plane without any entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."
Pros: "Quick and departure on time"
Pros: "Captain came out and talked with us"
Cons: "Delay seemed very avoidable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Boarding group approach caused confusion due to lack of line indicators (too short); in-flight WiFi kept dropping every 60 seconds, making movie watching impossible"
Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful and very friendly. I had recently visited my,daughter and her family in March and flew with another airlines. I didn't have a good experience, they seemed rather bothered when I asked for some help. So this time my daughter booked my flight with United. Like I said everyone was helpful and very pleasant, it didn't seem to be an act. I enjoyed my flights. Thank you"
Pros: "Seat was pretty comfortable, as it goes in coach these days."
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "We were delayed because the crew wasn't smart enough to ask people to put their purses beneath the seats. A number of us had to get off to check our bags and while we were checking them, a guy flying first class had a bag and while we are checking our luggage the pilot comes out and says "first class? Oh we will make room on the plane for you sir." And as a result of all of this, we missed our spot in the takeoff line, delayed the flight, and we almost missed our connection. Lastly, they overbooked the flight by TEN people. TEN."
Cons: "I had delay of 1.5 hours, no one take responsibility on the connection It's was not comfy at all Bad service"
Pros: "I enjoyed the heart warming and friendlyness of the pilot."
Cons: "The running nose sneezing person sitting next to me."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delay, but not airline'S fault."
Pros: "Plane side checked bags. Kind flight crew."
Cons: "Perfect weather. Delayed an hour."
Pros: "The flight arrived"
Cons: "United claimed the flight was delayed due to weather but two other flights to Houston were able to leave on time and no other United flights appeared to have been delayed. No apologies, no compensation, did not even give free access to wifi during flight."
Cons: "they couldnt find the pilot. they said they didnt have enough crew"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great flight! comfortable seats even for me being a big guy. The wifi made the flight go by great! The price on the wifi seemed a little excessive but a great convince none the less. I had a sandwich during the flight (like I said I am a big guy) it was better than expected for sure. Crew did there jobs but didn't seem to be happy about it. Overall great flight."
Pros: "The only thing that was enjoyable was the economy plus seat that I was in."
Cons: "On the flight from Tucson to Houston we experienced United's personal entertainment where you could use your iPad to watch movies. On the reverse flight, this flight that I'm reviewing, this amenity was not offered. As far as boring goes, the TSA in Houston was rude in the boarding sign said pre-boarding only so we were waiting and I almost missed the flight because the sign never changed."
Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through flight."
Cons: "It was one of the most horrible flights. Delays, sitting in the plane being really hot, did not offer water. Newaur airport change of terminals is like being in the middle ages, old, hot, no signage, bus steps, Really, reaaly awfulWill think twice before flyinf United again Other than that they got me here, late"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "It was behind schedule. Cut it very close on making my connection to Dublin."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and polite. Brought the drink cart around a couple times to make sure everyone was satisfied beverage wise."
Cons: "With it being a smaller plane there wasn't a whole lot of room for a 6'3" guy to sit comfortably for a long stretch. Although understandable for the size of plane it was my only dislike of the flight so overall a very good job."
Pros: "The flights were smooth and on time, even Early into mbj"
