Pros: "Crew polite. Food packages tastey."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and there weren’t any issues on the flight."
Cons: "We sat in the back of the plane on the way to Boston and felt very nasceous by the end of the flight because of all the turbulence. But, of course that isn’t the Alaska’s fault."
Pros: "Boarding and entertainment."
Cons: "No snacks at all!"
Cons: "The flight boarded on time but sat at gate for over 1/2 hr, before taking off, then arrived at LAX and waited another 15 or so minutes to dock at gate. Several people with a connection were very upset and it was an unpleasant experience. Also while up in the air, it took over an hour for seatbelt sign to go offf making it hard to wait for bathroom."
Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Cons: "lack of Cleanliness, one crew member was rude and pushy (not to me but in her tone and to others),"

Pros: "Liked the boarding process by rows...old school. No Group nonsense."

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late boarding and we spent another 1/2 hour waiting in line to take off."

Pros: "Fue bastante puntual y la atención de 1era"
Cons: "La ubicacion del asiento que nos tocó"
Cons: "I tried to print my boarding pass at home the day before the flight, with an error message "please see an Alaskan Clerk". I also tried to get my boarding pass via phone with the same error message. I also tried to go through Cathay's website, no luck. Cathays customer service is closed on Sunday, and Alaskan customer service said they cannot help me. I arrived 2 hours before my flight from SLC to LAX via Alaskan Airlines, and they were unable to print my boarding pass in time to make my flight. I waited 2 hours in line with other people also leaving at 6am, almost all of us missing our flight.... I am extremely disappointed and would like a refund for this trip. I ended up purchasing another one-way ticket to HKG, and will take the return flight home from Cathay."

Pros: "using passport as my ID :)"
Pros: "Good airline"
Pros: "We were flying international and bags were checked through to our final destination AND AA did not charge us for our checked bags because it was booked as part of an international ticket. (which I didn't learn before flying so it was a pleasant surprise, most airlines want to charge you for the domestic leg of your flight)! They allowed us to board early and were very accommodating for our family of 7. I finally figured out the in air entertainment on our devises, which didn't seem to work on our previous flight. Snacks were minimal."

Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "The fact that I was promised a flight @8:55 and didn't leave @ that time but the original flight @7:55 and wasn't informed about it . Or anything until after it left . And my bags went with the flight to Guadalajara and was a big mess. Half of my stuff was missing from both bags !!!!"

Cons: "That there was a long line to check in"
Cons: "Service was the best!!! Eatup cafe option wasn’t printed on the menu. Elf the movie was an option on my tv but wouldn’t actually play."

Pros: "Jetblue is my now number 1 choice for flying. They offer amazing comfort and value."
Cons: "Including free headphones, but not a deal breaker."

Cons: "It took over 2.5 hours to decide to switch airplanes"
Cons: "That the flight kept on getting delayed. JB staff should be more efficient. We understand the delay of up to one hour, but no one had any idea what was taking so long. we are two senior citizen with medical conditions. We specifically choose to fly JetBlue because they are on time and because of their service. We paid more to go with JetBlue, we could have gone with another cheaper airline. I guess it is time we change the way we think"
Pros: "I assume it's a well-known fact that airlines exaggerate the actual flight time to create an illusion of early arrival. However, the net result is sitting on the tarmac because the arrival gate is occupied...for an hour."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very kind, but the pilot did not inform the cabin what was happening often enough."
Cons: "There was over a four-hour delay to board and 2 more hours on the jetway before we took off. I ended up having to re-route through Long Beach and pay $75 more to get home."
Pros: "Mint service is better, and cheaper, than most domestic first class"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed and she made sure we will arrive in our final destination with no kinks or issues We were Re routed to Washington Dulles Airport instead of LAX and flew all the way to Cebu Philippines via Korean Airlines which we were grateful and happy"

Pros: "I felt comfortable in my economy seat with my individual entertainment center for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "They do not enforce the edict of 1 carryon bag per person"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful made me feel safe. The entertainment was excellent. Loved the snacks!!"
Pros: "Overall it’s always very easy and pleasant but I noticed this trip the quality was lower than I remember. Cheap coffee, no lemon for tea, little thin the nicer touches i remember previously. Plus the flight attendant had such a thick accent could barely understand her and the pilot had us in bumpy air the air the whole flight home."
Cons: "3 HR DELAYED DEPARTURE... IT WAS SO TERRIBLE.. NO CARRY ON LUGGAGE SPACE ON BOTH FLIGHTS"
Pros: "Quick security check."
Cons: "Temperature to hot in main cabin during flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew and highly comfortable flight. Will be switching to Jet Blue!!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and no food offered on board. Not even for Christmas"

Cons: "Waited 15 minutes on a taxiway for a gate once we landed and another half hour for the carousel to start dropping our bags at baggage claim."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "On a 5hr flight they stopped service after 2hrs and never offered any food for purchase. We were limited to the free snacks only which was lame."
Pros: "Crew were fine, boarding was easy. But on a 6 hour flight you have an expectation that the media will work, especially from Jet Blue since that’s what they build their business on."
Cons: "50% of the entertainment consoles were not working."
Pros: "Better leg room Better planes (WiFi, Seats, Movies) Better flight attendants"
Cons: "Same snacks and other non food as other airlines"
Pros: "Love Jet Blue!"
Pros: "Enjoyed everything about the flight from takeoff to landing. When possible I will fly jetblue over southwest any day"

Pros: "The staff, the service and the overall flight experience!!! Best flight ever1"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great!"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, bathrooms, entertainment, smoothness of flight, wifi"
Cons: "Always hope for more than water and pretzels, but those days are gone I guess."
Pros: "Original flight was delayed 2 hours was luckily able to get on standby for another flight with no help from kayak or jet blue."
Pros: "We had terrible delays and very little transparency in regards to what was going on with the flight. We were stuff on TARMAC without warning for much longer than expected. Overall it took me longer to get from Boston to DC than it took me to get from Spain to Boston. Unacceptable."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. The entertainment selection was decent, but considering that it crashed continually throughout the flight, and then stopped working halfway through, selection didn't mean much."
Cons: "Wifi - didn't work the entire flight (nor did it work on my outbound flight either). Entertainment system - kept crashing in the middle of watching movies, and then ultimately stopped working altogether (with 4.5 hours left in the flight). The seats are TINY - I've flown Mint class several times, and while it's great that they've created such an awesome experience up front, the coach experience has REALLY suffered."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My particular tv was not working properly. It would cut in and out on the visual, while audio remained."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Nice employees"
Cons: "Flight arrived on time but we didn't board until scheduled departure time. Seats are too hard and uncomfortable on the bottom."
Pros: "Free wifi, snacks, Dunkin Donuts coffee and movies. Friendly employees, clean plane. Made the six hour flight a breeze."
Cons: "Great flight all around."
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Cons: "could not get seat assignment online during check in."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Jet Blues onboarding person did a great job of managing expectations during a 2.5 hour delay imposed by Newark airport officials."
Pros: "Entertainment and free Wi fi. 1st bag free"
Cons: "Delay of flight, I was told by Jet Blue that booking via Kayak was why my wife and 15 year old son were put in 3 separate middle seats"
Pros: "The entertainment is a big reason why I choose Jet Blue over other airlines. Unfortunately, the movies did not work."
Pros: "Walking in to the Boston terminal was immediately relaxing. I got through the line quickly and once I got to my gate it was also very relaxing."
Cons: "Soba noodles were soggy, but not a deal breaker!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"
Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Pros: "Fine crew. Fine entertainment."
Cons: "Clumsy boarding process. After a 2.5 hour delay on tarmac before takeoff there was almost no food on board for a 6-hour flight"
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "The cheese bites were amazing!"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Nothing I can think"
Cons: "The seats selection"
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "All I need to say."
Pros: "Everything else"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. On time efficient boarding. Security in SEA-TAC less than 5 min. Different snacks both flights. Prompt service. On time. Power sources at seats worked."
Cons: "Airport gate area in LAX filthy. No seats. Garbage cans overflowing. Bathrooms smelled like New Orleans street on a Sunday morning. Entertainment system broken."
Pros: "The crew was very kind & accomodating. There were plenty of great current TV shows & movies. The seats were pretty comfortable, above average. I loved that they had roasted salted almonds as one of the 5 snack options."
Cons: "I had earbuds but the little girl next to me did not. I loaned her a pair of mine but I expected the flight attendants to offer them but they didn't."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "My non-reclining first class seat was a disappointment on this long flight. The flight was full, so there was no re-seating option."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"
Pros: "Food was good, I had the fruit & cheese plate. Very good. I had a wheelchair so she took me directly to the doorway of the plane. Very nice young lady from West Africa. Nice selection of recent movie releases."
Cons: "My seat would not recline. Uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Pros: "On-line entertainment was ok. It would have been better if they could notify you more clearly in advance about how to download the information you need and to let you know that earphones are not provided."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Flight attendants were not particularly service oriented. For example, when I asked for a glass of water the flight attendant sighed and then got it. So, the result was fine but the manner was not friendly."
Cons: "We were directed to one baggage claim area and after 15 min of waiting, found that all our flights' bags were on another carousell. No one told us."
Pros: "Awesome prices. T,he gate crew was informative and helpful with the flight status and early check in procedures. Good food choices and variety, and prices weren't terribly out of line"
Cons: "Flight crew didn't give many updates for sights or geography, if at all. Seats are probably the smallest i've seen, the the middle seats don't recline at all which is uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew were great, seat sizes were comfortable & overheads were bigger than other domestic airlines (a small thing that made a big difference to boarding)."
Cons: "A complimentary snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Seamless onboarding and check in."
Cons: "Not much leg room on plane, no snacks"
Pros: "Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Need check-in kiosks where you can print boarding pass without waiting in line. I checked in online but couldn't print my pass because I don't have a printer. I still had to wait in line like everyone else who hadn't yet checked in at both airports and wasn't checking a bag either. Delta sends the boarding pass right to your phone."
Pros: "Prompt, friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Had an aisle seat."
Pros: "This was the first time I flew Sun Country. I travel a lot for business and they were great. I would certainly fly them again."

Pros: "The cost of the flight"

Pros: "Fast boarding and such a smooth flight. Ticket was so affordable!"
Cons: "No entertainment and no free food. There was trash in my seat compartment."
Pros: "Same aa precious flight"
Cons: "Flight crew not as friendly"
Pros: "This was the cheapest non-stop flight I could find from Boston to MSP, which was nice. The flight attendants were helpful. If you plan to use only carry-ons, I recommend taking the flight up on their offer to check one of your bags for free at the gate (if you have a crowded plane) as it is otherwise very difficult to find overhead storage space."
Cons: "Expect a lot of small fees, such as fees for reserving a seat ahead of time. Also, there was no food on this flight, just beverages."
Pros: "Everything was on time, and the service was good."
Pros: "Smooth good service and comfortable"
Pros: "Everyone was nice, great leg space , comfortable, very helpful, reasonable baggage prices."
Cons: "Great experience until picking up baggage. My stroller was broken and 3 of my bags were destroyed!! To make matters worse there was no one to help.. No one at arrival desk, no one to be found by anyone in the airport!! I'm nervous how/if we will be compensated for our stuff."

Cons: "food inside"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful customer service across the board - check in was a breeze, flight staff very attentive and cheerful, pilot was amiable and gave us a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The seats and rows are incredibly compacted - unless you're a small person you won't be able to move much at all. The aisles are the narrowest I've ever seen - if you sit on the aisle expect to be bumped repeatedly. There's also much less room under the aisle seats for putting bags/personal items."
Pros: "The crew was great. Courteous and attentive. Liked the selection of food that included healthier options like the fruit plate."
Cons: "I am really displeased that there is a charge for baggage. With the price of fuel so low, I find if appalling that airlines charge even for the first bag."

Pros: "We made it there"
Pros: "The layover was good."

Cons: "The seats aren't the most comfortable, but again they're really cheap so I can't complain."
Pros: "Plane arrived on time, though it did take a while to de-plane."
Cons: "Didn't realize I would have to wait in line just to print my boarding pass. When I got to the terminal I offered to check one of my carry ons to make more room in the cabin. As I went to board the woman scanning my ticket rudely told me I would need to check my bag. I pointed to the giant green tag on it and said I was told to leave it near the door of the plane before I boarded. She shrugged. During the safety feature the flight attendant demonstrating how to use everything just walked away after the section about the air pressure and didn't demonstrate the rest of the safety features being narrated."
Pros: "The boarding process and take off were smooth. The crew was pleasant. Overall good experience."
Cons: "They charge for snacks. There is not a lot of leg room."
Pros: "everything went smoothly-from boarding to on time departure and arrival. Excellent crew."
Pros: "I was stock with TSA, looking for weapons in my underwear, as it was doubly padded...it was good quality, and an attendant came looking for me there. I felt very important, but it made TSA search me even more! When I got to the gate, she smiled and even helped me with putting my jacket back on! Wow!!! That's the way travel used to be decades back. I simply never asked for her name...she is a gem!"
Cons: "Only one of the four flight attendants smiled at people. The others simply did not feel as though they loved what they did nor wanted to be nice to the customers."

Pros: "Had exit row seats so there was plenty of leg room. We were in group 1 boarding, so we were boarded early so we had no problems."
Cons: "We were transferring to another airline with a 3 hr layover and United didn't get our bags there on time so our luggage showed up at our final destination 24 hrs late. Entertainment didn't work well - there seemed to be problems connecting via wifi and movies continuously stopped so I didn't use it."
Cons: "Lady sitting behind me lit a cigarette on the tarmac"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Crew disappeared for most of the flight as if it were a red eye and only served everyone one package of pretzels and came by with the drink cart once...this was on a seven hour flight. they did come by two other times wth a Tray of water but overall were not very friendly whatsoever."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "No screens nor outlets for charging. Outlets available only for higher tier tickets (for additional price). Surprised they dod not charge for air based on ticket price, but they might have for all I know. Sitting on the runway waiting for a gate, our section was filled with exhaust from the engines, which feeled like assisted suicide, almost lost consciousness."
Cons: "How can you fly hundreds people across the nation in a 100 million dollar aircraft but not know who to reset the router on the wifi? Bait and switches. They should never advertise it if they can't get it to work."
Pros: "The concern of the flight attendant when she accidentally kicked my foot in an aircast. It was my fault because I had my foot in the aisle trying to stretch out a bit."

Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentative"
Cons: "Nothing stood out, no one went above and beyond. When boarding, a flight attendant said there was no room in the overhead for my carry on and told me I had to check in my bag. When I finally boarded the flight, there were many empty spaces that could have fit my carry on"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 HOURS due to lazy attempts at calculating how much fuel was required with weather systems. We stopped to refuel in Minneapolis for a very long time, despite assurances it would only take ~20 minutes."
Cons: "Need to find a way for kayak to streamline the entry of tsa precheck info prior to flight."
Cons: "It was a small plane and there was no entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was courteous and nice. Due to a 2+ hour delay we had free movies on the flight."
Cons: "The fact that our incoming flight was delayed more than 2 hours."
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Pros: "Flight was early. Friendly and competent flight crew."
Cons: "DirectTV a pain for on board entertainment."
Pros: "United airlines staff were polite and worked hard."
Cons: "I did not like that they printed my ticket for my connecting flight for EVA Air without any EVA Air markings. This meant that when I arrive at LAX I was giving directions to the United Airlines terminal when I really needed to be at the terminal for Eva Airlines. This caused me to almost missed my flight with Eva Airlines. For the remainder of my trip EVA airline staff were quite grumpy with me for being 45 minutes late boarding. I actually am thankful that I believe they held the plane that 45 minutes for me. It just seems too convenient that the plans out there that long after its scheduled takeoff."
Pros: "Friendly, attentive staff. Great seats with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "There is a reason why I stopped flying and this airline and now I remember why. I was not assigned a seat on the flight and checked int for a seat assignment at the gate. When I asked the boarding rep at the gate for an aisle seat, she lied and said there were none left but when I looked online, there were more than 25 available. This flight was awful, uncomfortable, the plane smelled like a geriatric center and was dirty."
Pros: "The easiness of the airline to adapt to the fact that we will be going late and the swiftness in organize all the passengers in a way that no one will miss their connection flight"
Cons: "I had a child with me and I was sat in the row before the emergency exit, where the seats were rigid and my child was not able to sleep at all. Making it uncomftable to all around her."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "I always fly united. My pilots got me from Boston to at for the red Sox and the Celtics game safe and early!"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff."
Pros: "Timeliness and orderliness"
Pros: "same comments as above"
Cons: "same comments as above"
Pros: "The aircraft size. The fact that the plane left and arrived on schedule."
Cons: "The overhead compartments were very small and didn't fit a regular size carry-on suitcase.."

Cons: "Paying more for seats that were open anyway, paying extra for a bag, smelly toilet on sky west ,"
Pros: "That it was direct form Cleveland to LA and it left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Chairs are so tight and hardly move back enough. Why can't they have some form of lumbar support?"
Cons: "Entertainment expensive"
Pros: "People to speak english and flights to be on time. missed a whole day of work!!!"
Cons: "People to speak english and flights to be on time. missed a whole day of work!!!"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Second delay in a row"
Cons: "The first contact in the airport was quite rude when informing me that I had to measure my suitcase for size. I have carried this suitcase on on every airline for over 10 years....the size got smaller and United got $25.00....not happy. There was NO free movies, no access to TV, flight pattern....nothing and it could not be turned off. ONE cookie for a coast-to-coast flight. What happened to United?"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats in a completely full flight. My seat didn't really lean back. The man next to me kept spilling over into my space. Terrible flight, especially for a red-eye."
