Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"

They told me that I wasn't allowed and that I would 'have to' book another flight for another $125!!!! I feel like I was robbed! By the time I made it to the gate of the other flight I was 'forced' to buy it was 5:48...plenty!!!!! of time to board my previous flight! I will NEVER fly with alaska again! Bunch of thieves!!!!!!"

Cons: "Had a window seat, and the "wall" by the window was ice cold. I was wearing a windbreaker and was shivering the entire time. My feet were in thick wool socks and leather boots, and even so they were freezing! This did not happen on my previous flight with Alaska, so I hope this is an isolated experience just for this particular plane."
Pros: "Friendly, charging outlets at every seat"
Pros: "This was my first time flying on a big commercial plane and having to deal with big airports. All in all, I had a great first time experience. The whole process made sense, it was fast, easy, everyone was friendly. I never had any hiccups or got lost. So thank you for making my first time so easy and for all the hard work all of you do to make that possible for everyone!"
Cons: "The plane left late but still arrived on time so I really don't count that as a criticism. If that's the worst thing you've done, then keep doing what you're doing because I have no problem at all with it haha. I will definitely be a repeat customer!"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful"
Cons: "the crew, especially the guy was so busy talking to the other crew members that he was just going through the motions of taking care of the people. I asked him what mountain that was outside the window. His response was "I don't know" and kept right on talking to his other helper. If a patron asks a question he should at least not give the impression that I was interrupting his talk with the other steward while serving"
Pros: "Always great service"
Cons: "Somehow I ended not sitting next to my companion. In my head if you purchase two tickets, they should automatically assume you want to sit together. I guess I needed to select seats before the flight."
Pros: "I liked customer service . punctuality"
Pros: "I like that they allowed active duty to board along with first class etc.."

Pros: "For us there quickly and mostly in comfort"
Cons: "Too hot all flight, the vents blew hit air"

Pros: "I called to change seats for my wheelchair dad and was cheerfully well accommodated by customer service."
Cons: "When I initially placed the reservation online my dad was seated in a middle seat in the back with no options to change seats. I had to call customer service and they were very helpful."
Pros: "Flew to Seattle in the morning in a Southwest Cattle Car. Flew back on one of Alaska's new 737's. Really liked the cabin design. Cabin lighting was very impressive and very easy on your eyes. Well done Alaska!"
Cons: "I'm 6'-6", so more legroom would always be appreciated."
Pros: "Very friendly service. Attendants have God attitude. You can tell the employees are happy and paid well"
Cons: "The bean burrito they give out is just ok. I think it will be better if they just gave a small bag of potato chips or something else. It's free, so all you can do is not eat it if you don't like it I guess."
Pros: "I liked the selection of short films from SIFF, the crew was good."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit too chilly"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "That you charge for the miles credit card"

Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"
Cons: "We were delayed like crazy."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."
Pros: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."
Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Cons: "90 minute delay leaving LAX. Stuck on plane. 30 minuet delay getting to gate after landing at SFO. Stuck on plane again."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats are too crammed and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great selection of movies"
Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Cons: "Delayed take off and waited for the bridgr"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Cons: "Got in early"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."
Pros: "Being on time."
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "I liked the free in-flight entertainment - movies, music, HBO, etc. That was very nice and helped the flight fly by"
Cons: "They should have separate lanes on boarding like United. Then people can line up in the appropriate group."
Pros: "Some entertaining choices but not all clear which ones were in my flight"
Cons: "The food I wanted had sold out by the time I ordered it"
Cons: "I did not like being assigned to a seat that did not recline at all and was given no up front warning so it was a very unwelcome surprise at the start of my 6+ hour flight."
Cons: "Spent 90 minutes on the plane before it even took off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was over two hours late because of winds in San Francisco."
Cons: "I got very cold during the flight, the ac was so cold that I had to stay in my winter jacket and a hood."
Pros: "Have not flown Delta for some time and was very impressed. Definitely would fly again."
Pros: "The dreamliner is an amazing plane. I really liked the window tinting feature it has."
Cons: "Entertainment aka movies.. this was an older plane - should have brought a book as I’m used too movie screens"
Pros: "Dry accommodating staff all around. Thank you"
Cons: "More space between people. Not much you can do I understand that. So overall great"
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Pros: "The plane was one of their most recent to their fleet of planes. Lots of overhead luggage space and extra leg room. Nice looking on the inside"
Cons: "I like the overall feel to the inside."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Cons: "Small plane but I know it’s supply and demand"
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and helpful. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Trip was too short."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."
Cons: "i ordered food but it wasnt provided. i havent checked to see if money was withdrawn from my account. i also would have prefered to have westjet connect. there is better selection and i could use my bluetooth headphones"
Pros: "Excellent staff. I wish american carriers would take lessons from them."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a 5 year-old boy who had a hard time sitting and his mother had nothing for him to do. He kept kicking me, by accident, and was disruptive and noisy. Finally I decided on a counting game with his m &m's and that lasted for about half an hour. I know that West Jet had mo control over this situation."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff exceptional !!"
Pros: "Service crew was so nice and accomodating"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Quick unload"
Cons: "Big delay"
Pros: "Always a good experience travelling with west jet"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Cons: "I was really tired. Long line getting into the USA section. Argh. Let's just say I was grumpy and wanted to get home. Staff wss really nice."
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up in the air!"
Pros: "Check in time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and my luggage which had my medications didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Service was great. Seats seemed to have shrunk. I sat in a middle seat. Hmm."
Cons: "So far better than most of the US airline."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew and great personal help and attention at check in."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "No choice for seating - my husband and I were seated separately"
Pros: "Wonderful crew-from the gate to the plane! Everyone was polite and helpful. I will definitely fly WestJet again."
Pros: "Fortunately the plane was not crowded at 9pm and they made up for the 15 minute delay and arrived on time. Everything was pleasant and as expected."
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "Really fast"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Pros: "From check-in to cabin crew, everyone seemed helpful and knowledgeable. Flights on time, cabins clean and pleasant, seats comfortable, with good leg room."
Cons: "Entertainment a bit limited."
Pros: "Smoot boarding on time leaving earlier they were we supposed to be everything will be smooth"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "My daughter ordered the tickets for us but she didn't pick seats. We forget to pre checked in, either. Our flight was very full so We are so lucky got the first class seats! This is the first time in our life with first class experiences! It was on the July 4th and saw a lots of fireworks in the airplane! We are so exciting! Thank you for West Jet Airline!"
Cons: "Having to pay to watch a movie and ear plugs"
Pros: "Fast efficient service for check in with bags"
Pros: "I am eternally grateful to both the airport and flight staff for letting my boyfriend and I catch this plane. We arrived very late to the airport, very close to the cut off time, and the staff let us try and catch the plane regardless. It was my mothers birthday dinner that night, so I am extremely grateful they let us through to try and make our flight. Thanks WestJet!"
Pros: "Gate agents were nice."
Cons: "1. Nothing healthy to buy on the plane. 2. Nasty flight attendant. 3. Small seats. 4. Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"
Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."
Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, definitely love the new planes...lol... polite, friendly, fun, flight attendants."
Cons: "One can get free beer or wine but no tomato juice?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"
Pros: "I got motion sickness and they helped me bringing ice to put on my neck. It helped a lot. They were amazing!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and the meal I pre-ordered was very nice. Snacks and beverages were complimentary."
Cons: ""Engine trouble" so off the plane and back to the gate. Not much information conveyed to us. Just sitting and waiting. Took off about 2 hours late. No entertainment. $6.99 for a tablet."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Was too hot"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board because my sister is autistic traveling with her service dog. This had been the worst experience ever. We feel discriminated for something that is outside our control . This is unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was just ok, they did not extend themselves to make the customer feel comfortable/safe."
Cons: "The seat on the flight are too small the average person does not fit comfortable."
Cons: "Not being able to choose an aisle seat made the flight uncomfortable for me and my neighbors"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours (reason unknown) and the entertainment on flight shut off once and then froze for 20 minutes"
Cons: "No wifi, no movies, no power outlets. The budget airline I flew to Mexico (Volaris) was nicer."
Pros: "All the service they give is excellent."
Pros: "Great service all around. I would recommend."
Cons: "Boarding process. The Zone lines are formed a very long time before boarding really begins. Why?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and staff are very nice"

Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "It was going to be a 45 mins delay, turned out to be 1 1/2hrs"
Pros: "They kept close to schedule."
Cons: "The division of lines with the passeengers."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "We boarded fast and we arrived on time"
Cons: "I requested a "Fragile" label for my suitcase. They said they ran out of them. When I came back home, they had break 2 memories. One of them from the conference I taught. I tried to wrap them as tight as possible. I am aware of the risks of carrying fragile things but I can't stop thinking that the label might had helped avoiding things getting break. Flight Attendance were not very friendly. They were not rude but defiantly not friendly"
Pros: "Comfortable and arrived on time"
Cons: "México has wonderful food, their airline should highlight that"
Pros: "They took very good care of my fragile box."
Cons: "On boarding the plane the crew didn’t have control of the people and when zone 2 started to board zone 3 started to cut the zone 2"
Cons: "I asked staff from Aero Mexico twice whether there was going to be any food served on the flight, I was told that they did not know or didn't think there wiuld be any service. I ended up buying food I did not need. Also my husband and I were separated in the flight. Food served was so so."
Pros: "Aeromexico keeps impressing me! The professionalism is great. The timing and ease of boarding was perfect. And the leg room and on-board accommodations make it a comfortable journey. Definitely now among my list of favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Poor signage, lack of good food restaurants, the over all quality has gone downhill since the 80's and 90's when I would eagerly look forwards to flying to Mexico."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no explanation. Curt airline hostesses. Limited bathrooms. No inflight entertainment options. 1 hour waiting for bags at destination."
Pros: "The nonstop flight was efficient and the wait was short"
Cons: "difficult to turn off screen"
Pros: "Service as usual, good"
Cons: "Flight late departing almost an hr"
Cons: "1.5 hour. Line up to get boarding pass and check baggage is terrible. Also could not do seat selection on line- same day even though web site lead me to it several times. No explanation."
Pros: "The plane/Pilot got us home."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. The plane was old and had the drop down video screens. This was terrible- we couldn’t see the one closest to us, only the one further away. But any words on the further one, we couldn’t read. The staff on the plane were rude and made us seem like we’re a bother and unwelcome. We were scared to ask for anything."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours and it was never communicated to the passengers through the monitors. None of the flight info was updated on the monitors and we had no idea about: 1. which gate the flight was supposed to depart from 2. the correct time of the new departure since the flight was late 3. whether the flight was canceled all together The monitors showed the flight was on time until the actual time of departure. I almost missed my flight because I was never notified about the information above. The Aeromexico agents at the airport were not helpful at all: they did not know anything about the issue with the flight. I had to stay in a long line just to have them look up the flight in the computer and tell me that the flight was delayed. No other information was given to me. Terrible experience, especially after a long stopover."
Cons: "They lost my baggage and then I lost my flight, I want a refund I am still on Mexico City"
Cons: "We lost our connection fight for delayed and we have been charged extra for ALL the baggages ($25 dollars per baggage). Which is insane!!! Uncomfortable plane and seats apart from my husband, Overall bad experience :-( :-("
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, good entertainment system and content."
Cons: "Food was pretty mediocre. I'd prefer to pay a few dollars extra for a better meal."
Pros: "Extensive list of movie choices on the plane, and good viewing device with which you can use your own ear buds. Cabin crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "Check-in to an international flight was a long drawn process, as usual"
Cons: "MY FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED!!!!!!!!!!! I DID NOT GET AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WAS IN THE AIRPORT FOR OVER 11 HOURS!!!!!!"
Cons: "I couldn't watch movies so I asked flight attendant she said " watch next screen ". But there was someone sitting! How can I do that!!! They didn't say sorry"
Cons: "Miss morning fight onAeroméxico ,canceled our return fligh thome Wanted to charge us more to More to book a flight back the fair was the fair was double the price what I paid so I had to book with United Airline"
Pros: "Sf to Mexico was fine"
Cons: "Lost my immigration form and missed my flight. Airline told me to talk to my booking agent. I spent time talking to justfly and it took them a long time to tell me they couldn’t do anything and I’m stuck in Mexico for a day."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Having a full row to myself"
Cons: "No entertainment system. Not even a port to charge out personal devices so we can entertain ourselves."
Pros: "very smooth flignt"
Cons: "boarding took a long time due to last minute checkups"
Cons: "Well, I missed my flight currently still waiting to HOPEFULLY board my flight home to San Francisco."
Cons: "Need confirmation number on calendar to help with check in"
Pros: "I will not fly in this airline never."
Cons: "Dalay,boarding not very well organized."
Pros: "The stewardesses were hotties with very cute outfits. The chars were fairly comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this helped us because our flight prior was also insanely delayed."
Pros: "The only positive factor about this specific flight was the staff who is very diligent and attentive to everyone."
Cons: "Once we got on the plane, the pilot mentions there is a delay due to the AC not functioning but they are fixing it. We took off and the AC apparently was never fixed because it was out for the whole flight. On top of that there was basically no entertainment on flight. Those two things are basic when flying."
Cons: "My passengers are still in mexico, The flight was delayed 1 day and I was not notified I need you to get me a new ticket at your expense"
Cons: "TWICE for crying aloud I suspected it would before and sure enough it did it after I ate it Mexico has a beatiful food tradition why do you mess around with idiotic offerings? Best to not offer any food if it does not secure decent taste"
Cons: "The gate did not display the flight and there were three flights out of my gate at roughly the same time. It was unnerving not knowing if I was getting on the correct flight."
Pros: "Transfer through Mexico city airport is a nightmare. You can clear immigration, get your luggage, clear customs, transfer terminal, check in your luggage, going through security, and finally get to your gate. All without any clear guidance from the airline or the airport. I will never fly through Mexico City again."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Cons: "Delay luggage"
Cons: "I could not check in online nor selecting a seat in advance. Getting the boarding pass and the seat was a nightmare. British neither American could not help me out. Horrible experience"
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Pros: "The food was delicious and nutritious. The attendants were very conscientious and took care of us."
Cons: "Need an instruction sheet on how to use the entertainment center. Especially where to plug the headphones. Flight attendants dd pay more attention to other passengers."
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."
Pros: "I love your entertainment selection. also the comfort of seat and it's on time."
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Pros: "Quiet flight"
Cons: "Very old plane with zero on board entertainment. Seats in front of exit row barely recline."
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."
Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."
Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."
Cons: "As I mentioned in my last comment I was seated at the back of the plane on over four and a half hour flight by the time the food got to me they had ran out that I mention that I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure so I have to sit and suffer for over 3 hours will never ever fly American again"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and competent and obbiously embarrased by whoever in operations screwed this flight up good."
Cons: "Pleane departed two hours and thirty minutes after original schedule because of operational and equipment problems. Plane wasn't even in Philadelphia unti 6:00 pm. The guy at boarding (unlike the boarding in SFO) called way too many groupss individually, First Class, Diamond, Premium, Gold, Priority. This led to many people being refused boarding and told to wait. In SF they simply call first class and then all the rest or the Aadvantage members together before the land boarding. Much faster and more efficeint. Even though the flight was full there less than 12 people in the Diamond, Premium, whatever classes. And the guy taking the boarding passes was a jerk. He actuallly seemed to take pleasure in telling people they couldn't board. Might not ever fly AA again. At least never from Philadelfphia."
Cons: "Due to the delay which caused us to miss our connection we had to get a hotel, which we had to pay for. It also caused me to miss work the following day."
Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"
Cons: "Flight didn't exist"
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."
Cons: "Three separate delays before boarding (boarded three hours late), then another 45 minute delay after boarding to "recalculate" due to fuel burned while sitting at gate, then nonstop announcements and dinging for the 30 minutes during & after takeoff, no screens or outlets, old and uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight Attendant Sullivan added humor and attentiveness to flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Flight left on time"
Pros: "Everything. I was amazed and extra appreciative that my checked bag made what turned out to be a very tight connection! Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was great. I would like to connect that it would be nice to have a not applicable rating option for food and entertainment as they are often not applicable but having to choose something effects the overall rating."
Pros: "This leg of the trip was not packed. There was an empty seat between me and the person next to me"
Cons: "This flight was 6 hours. It did not have frontal entertainment, which was not pleasant. They did not offer blankets. The plane was cold as I boarded the plane. I asked for a blanket and was advised they didn't have any. I was so cold the entire flight that I still have a cold due to the flight. I froze the entire flight. I stuffed my arms in my shirt and let my hair down for warmth. Also, I learned my lesson. Pack my own blankie for comfort. I checked my carry on in Aruba due to overhead capacities. My bag had my sweatshirt and the blankie Delta bankie I acquired when I flew from SFO to ATL."
Cons: "We were delayed by a mechanical then we waited another hour after that until they finally decided to take some people off because we were weight restricted. Then we waited another hour while they changed their minds and brought us back to the gate to get the people back. Then when we got into SFO at 1 am we had to wait because they had another plane parked at out gate."
Pros: "Service was outstanding, stewardess was funny, plane was very clean. I will switch from Southwest! Good job!"
Cons: "It was very delayed which I understand happens but then we arrived in San Francisco and were delayed on the runway because of the gate. I think at this point moving us to an open gate would have been nice - we had been delayed for so long - my 8 year old daughter was really having a hard time. Instead we had to sit and wait for 20 more minutes once we were on the ground. This seems avoidable to me."
Cons: "crew delay, delayed our flight and ruined our whole day...really disappointed"
Cons: "Having missed my scheduled flight, when I got on the later flight, we waited an hour on the tarmac to takeoff and 40 minutes on the tarmac in San Francisco for a gate. Basically three hours of sitting on a tarmac all day because gates weren't available. How can that possibly be? Do you not know the plane is coming? Terrible."
Cons: "I'll never book AA again."
Pros: "Very helpful people. From the from desk to the in flight crew they answered my questions. Had a weird gate where it's a satellite gate with American Eagle, little confusing but they helped me out."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for like an hour. 100% not their fault, and they kept us in the loop the whole time. Really not a complaint about them. SFO is just always sucked in with fig in the morning."
Pros: "FINALLY American has up to date aircraft!!! Five years ago half the seatbacks and lighting on long distance flights didn't work. Swore I would never fly them again. They have redeemed themselves. nice aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight movie questionable. Couldn't figure out wifi entertainment options from inflight magazine ( over 60) and staff too busy to assist ( though didn't ask - just could see they had their hands full with beverage service). Would recommend video instructions after preflight safety video for tech unsavvy travelers. Also reminder on reservation to bring your own headsets and electronic devices."
Pros: "I LOVED the staff on this flight. Especially the man, I didn't catch his name but he was the friendliest flight attendant I have ever met. He had a warm smile the whole flight and helped me get an ice pack for my back when I was in pain. Every time he got something for someone he was smiling and happy which made me and my husband smile and happy. He should be recognized because he made our experience very enjoyable. I have never been on a flight where the service was constant, all of the flight attendants walked up and down the aisles throughout the flight making sure everyone was doing good. Typically, they go down the aisle with the service carts once and thats it, but they made sure everyone was taken care of for the whole flight. Thank you for the great flying experience after a long and tiring trip!! We were dreading the flight but the staff was great."
Cons: "Waiting in the Charlotte Airport for the flight to board was a bit irritating because the two girls that were supposed to call the sections for the flight were on their phones and not very present with what was going on. We boarded late and i am not sure if this is because the flight itself was late or they were just slow with the process.. The only thing I would complain about the flight itself is that we had to wait on our plane for about an hour after we landed. This, I know- has nothing to do with AA and the service/staff. I think this is something that SFO is responsible for, and I felt bad that people were taking it out on the crew."
Pros: "Courtesy and helpful attitude if the crew"
Cons: "Seats had a small legroom. Headsets were available at a cost"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible No free wifi, no tv screens on seats"
Cons: "5.5 hour flight in first class with no video except on an iPad or other device which require paying for wifi. $8 for a half hour. Lousy."
Pros: "Besides how dirty the plane was, everything else was as expected. Crew was polite."
Cons: "The airplane was very dirty with food littered on the seats, floor and tray table. The windows had disgusting grease. Terrible cleanliness. The passenger before me might have been very disgusting but it's the airline's responsibility to check these things and clean their aircraft for the next passenger."
