Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed, may of been beyond the pilots control. Scrambled seating arrangements."

Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."

Cons: "I didn’t like everything"

Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."

Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."

Pros: "Awesome !"

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "The plane had far more leg room than typical airlines which was a pleasant surprise. It was newer than most, the flight attendants were polite and accommodating and the ride was smooth!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Seats are ok."
Cons: "The flight schedule was delayed two times."

Cons: "We can't get boarding pass in Taipei. Hence, we have to go through Canadian immigration process to obtain boarding pass, then enter US immigration zone for US immigration process before get on board."

Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."

Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."

Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."

Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."

Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."

Pros: "My snowboard didn't make the connecting flight, customer service had it delivered to my house the very next morning."

Pros: "Flight was quick with wonderful views of the San Juan islands"

Pros: "arrived earlier"

Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"
Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"

Pros: "The crew was extremely rude. They did not come to collect trash and so all passengers were left holding their coffee/ tea: beverages during bumpy landing."

Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It is the first time that I travel by this airline and I have a bad experience. The flight was delayed by 2 hours and before arriving at Los Angeles airport they informed us that they had not been provided with the migration forms."

Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."

Pros: "What can I say...I love Delta!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."

Pros: "The plane wasn't cramped, the flight staff was helpful, and we got to our destination extremely quickly. And they gave us like two rounds of snacks which is unheard of on such short flights. Easily the best domestic flight I've ever taken."

Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Sandwich for dinner"

Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"

Pros: "service and accommodations."
Cons: "Ran out of a meal that I wanted. One flight attendant forgot to hand me utensils with my dinner meal."

Pros: "The food on the flight from Venice to Atlanta was excellent! And the flight attendants was really friendly and helpful. My movie screen froze up and our attendant rebooted it right away."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine. TVs on every plane would be nice."

Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"

Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"

Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."

Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."

Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."

Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Landing was rough."

Pros: "Crew was professional and corteous."
Cons: "1. I was in seat 38 D. It was an aisle seat. There was no space to put my bag under the seat in front of me. There was some kind of box blocking where my bag would go. I barely had room for my feat. 2. There was odor coming from the bathrooms. The smell was worse before the plane took off."

Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"

Pros: "Seat upgrade."

Cons: "No complaints, great crew, great service, great flight!"

Pros: "The pilot got us to Dallas ahead of schedule which was a big help because I was concerned about making my connecting flight. The stewardess assured me of the process and said not to worry."
Cons: "The food combination was a bit strange and we need a non spicy option. The bibimbop was good because I could control the amount of spice."

Pros: "Boarding is orderly."
Cons: "Why aren’t seniors and parents with little kids allowed extra time to board? You have to pay for WiFi after the first hour? No kosher options for purchase in the food menu, clearly not looking out for all Americans."

Cons: "My seat was broken and would not recline, i mentioned it to the stewardness and even though there were other empty seats they did not offer to move me."

Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"

Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."

Pros: "Vegetarian chickpea curry were delicious"
Cons: "7 hour flight with no individual entertainment, plane was not clean chairs worn and controls were filthy. One flight attendant asked “Are you going to eat”? Customer interaction leaves much to be desired."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3x, it was a very long day of traveling."

Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"

Pros: "Left on time, service was good."

Cons: "Found out at airport after getting up at 4AM. Told no flights on other airlines but when I got home found availability on Delta, Basically lied to us."

Pros: "From madrid foto Charlotte everything was excellentm"
Cons: "From Charlotte to miami they made me wait more than an hour for my luggage because they sent mine on another flight"

Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."

Pros: "Not a thing plans got changed I had back surgery"
Cons: "That my plans got changed"

Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."

Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."

Cons: "American Airlines was late! There was no indication that the flight was late until it was time to board, then they indicated it would be 25 minutes late, which actually turned into 50 minutes until the plane arrived. It had to be cleaned and prepared for our flight, which then took off over 1 1/2 hours late. Many passengers missed their connecting flights and American Airlines was no help... they directed people to the Miami Airport Crew. American Airlines stated that the plane was late due to air traffic control issues, but in reality the plane hadn't even arrived yet. I felt like I was lied to! Shame on American Airlines! I will never fly with this company by choice!"

Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."

Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."

Pros: "Crew was professional. Boarding was effcient"
Cons: "As for confort, let's say that we know now how sardines feel in their tiny can."

Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."

Cons: "The Live TV entertainment froze so many times when trying to watch either CNN or CNBC. Finally gave up on it. The Touch Screen responsiveness could be much better. However; once a movie was selected, watching it was an excellent experience. The Leg room was not the best either, but I blame myself on this in that I almost waited till the last minute to buy my self a ticket."

Cons: "Bad as above"

Cons: "Airline is run like a circus, horrible experience going to and from Cusco from Lima. I do not know how their poor employees work under such stressful conditions. Spend the extra money and fly LAN or LATAM."

Pros: "Flights were boarded efficiently and on time. Crews were courteous and helpful."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "eat"

Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."

Cons: "No AC for the first 30 minutes after boarding so it was wacky hot and stuffy."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything went as expected"
Cons: "NOthing"

Pros: "One bag did not arrive."

Cons: "Got to Denver 4h Late."

Cons: "The entire Air Canada computer system was down for 45 minutes, and we had to run to make our connection, which we barely did. If the entire system is down, why don't they put a 45 minute hold on the flights since they know that everyone is late? Plus, one of the representatives gave us false information."

Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "All went smoothly"

Cons: "Temperature too cold in the airplane Ipads to rent (no screens)"

Pros: "Uncomfortable seat. Super old aircraft. Wasn’t even given water"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast?"

Cons: "A delay of 28hrs is never positive. I haven’t been able to get my United points either since I was rerouted to SFO. When claiming them the system says that I never boarded the flight to EWR and completely ignore the YYZ - SFO flight. Mediocre overall."

Cons: "At the time at the gate did not allowed me even take my caryon bag with me, the staff was so rude an in an uncivilized manner start fighting with me ,I am a sinor person got very disrespected by your staff, I would like to bring a lawsuit against UA for what you did to me ,I wish an invitator from your office contantact me to explain everything,"

Cons: "Gate not ready on arrival."

Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."

Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."

Cons: "I don't fully understand why, but I was unable to get my boarding pass for my flight to Chicago from Toronto until I arrived in the Toronto airport. Toronto airport sequesters off international arrivals, so in an ideal world, I would have been able to go through security directly to into the U.S. terminal, bypassing Canada customs. However, the United desk that I needed to get my boarding pass from located just before security was unmanned. The very kind Air Canada attendant called for a representative multiple times, but after 45 minutes of waiting no one ever arrived to print my boarding pass for me. The Air Canada employee then gave up on any United staff showing up and suggested I try going through Canadian customs and checking in at the same departure desk travelers first entering the airport would go through and make sure to let them know how long I was waiting. The United employee I spoke with told me that I was impatient and should have continued waiting because now she didn't know what would happen with my checked bag and that I may well need to wait 2 hours more for that to get sorted out. I was rather surprised by her overly negative response and apparent threat. If I was irate or yelling that might have been warranted, but frankly, I was so tired from the international travel I didn't have the energy to fight with her. Regardless, I wish I had been more impatient, it was far easier to go through customs twice than I expected. I would have preferred to spend more time in the lounge inside the terminal than to stand by the United desk waiting for someone to arrive to print my boarding pass. At any rate, Canadian+US customs have it together; when I went through U.S. customs to get into the terminal they had the photo of my checked bag right there."

With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "We had to go to the special help counter to get our seat assignments changed so my wife and I could fly together. Then they attempted to charge us baggage fees because you didn't notify them that we used our United Explorer card. This also required me working with the gate agent to get priority boarding"

Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."

Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""

Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"

Pros: "Always the service is above and beyond"
