CREW WAS AMAZING

Read more about Alaska Airlines

CREW WAS AMAZING

First class needs entertainment. The crew were inattentive, did not know how to smile. Overall they were unfriendly.

Everything! Ahead of schedule, smooth flight. I like it. I was skeptical in the beginning because I know this airline,but they’ve been great 👍

More variety of food would have been nice.

It was so cold I ask someone to talk to the captain and she didn’t

The chair was too small and no room for you feet.

The flight landed in Newark 30 minutes early, but we weren’t able to get off the airplane for about 90 minutes or so, due to poor management of gates

More than 2 hours wasted in plan

Boarding went smoothly and crew was good. Comfort was so-so mostly bc it was a packed flight and very cramped for seating and lavatory use.

Great communication

THE staff was attentive, communicative and friendly. They particularly were good at the difficult job of policing mask infractions. Thank them for me please

Pros: "The cheese platter was delicious and I like the gogo entertainment. Boarding was very quick, the crew was hepful and kind."

Even though flight attendants announced they would make people wear their masks properly, they didn’t. The woman sitting next to me and my child had her mask down or off for most of the flight, and she coughed and sneezed.

Pros: "Nice crew. Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The time to get the luggage to baggage claim was way longer than expected."
Pros: "Seat comfort is better than many airlines but I still felt boxed in."

Pros: "The Crew was really friendly and seemed genuinely happy. The flight left on time and landed a few minutes early which is always a plus."
Cons: "With the plane fully booked I wound up having to gate check my carry on bag. This was not overly upsetting or anything terrible but it did cost me almost 20 extra minutes at baggage claim which resulted in my ride parking the car and then having to pay the parking fee."
Cons: "the crew was gruff, there were no outlets on the plane, the flight was delayed WELL BEYOND the 40 minutes it was announced to be (1.5+ hours delayed) which, had I known in advance, would've been useful information for rescheduling instead of just missing other travel arrangements on the other end."
Cons: "Old plane old seats old tv limited movies"
Cons: "the only discomfort is trying to sleep"
Pros: "Everything was smooth, great service, friendly staff and captain. Arrived ahead of time. Free Wifi. Great inflight entertainment."
Pros: "You can always count on JetBlue for good snacks and free WiFi."
Cons: "But the snacks and free WiFi is not enough to payback the delayed departure experience. Just a week prior, my JetBlue flight was scheduled on time and then three things delayed thre flight for three hours right before we took off and now this! I was told it was due to needing to replace a crew member from another delayed flight. How can that affect so many people? The seat was also super uncomfortable and the back of the cushion was rolling forward, which made it hard to sit for that long. we also didn’t have a gate when we landed so that added on an extra 30minutes. Really disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Three delays. From takeoff time of 9:50 to 10:40 to 11:23 to 12:05. The ostensible delay was the incoming plane, which landed before 10 PM but - lo and behold, it was an international flight, surely something we didnt know when it took off - it went to gate 94 and had to be cleared blah blah blah. Each delay was predictable and JetBlue could easily have simply informed the passengers that we would be delayed 90-120 minutes rather than stringing us along with bite sized delays with insipid explanations. If there was really anything to JetBlues "award winning customer service" I would imagine they would have not insulted everyone's intelligence and been honest about the delays - which pushed arrival time to 2 am. I travel a good bit - three or four times a month - but cant remember the last time I flew JetBlue. JetBlue will certainly be right there with Frontier and Allegiant on airlines I'll seek to avoid. I dont know if it was just base level incompetence or if they dialed it up for the occasion, but it was on full display for the holidays."
Pros: "Nice leg room."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Plus, for this flight, I sat in row 8 but had to put my bag in the overhead compartment in row 18!!! Huge hassle to get back to my seat boarding, and a long wait to get it to get off!!!"
Pros: "Smooth, great service, free wi fi that really works and lots of free snacks and water which nowadays may seem like a real perk."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight is so much delayed. The flight attendent seemed not happy about me with a two year old, which makes traveling with a kid so unpleasant. When my kid asked to go to restroom, it seemed that we’re troulesome. My mom missed the water when they gave out drinks, but they did not come back for us. When I went to the back to ask for my mom, they said they’re cleaning up already."
Pros: "On time Great service Friendly staff Boarded quickly Landed 30 minutes early"
Pros: "Great flight attendant especially the gentleman!!! Super helpful even with a bunch of cranky New Jerseyians on a delayed flight!"
Cons: "Too hot! AC was going on and off??"
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfort once boarded and flight attendants warm welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours late. Was supposed to leave at 10pm and left at 1:13 am!! Customer service at jetblue kept lying about the aircrafts whereabouts and crew. They barely gave us updates, and at one point once everyone started asking questions and getting upset, they disappeared from the desk for an hour at least. The crew was late, there was no food, customer service had quite an inappropriate attitude, and tvs on the plane barely worked,"
Cons: "It was kinda hot and humid on the flight. On Demand movies and tv were unavailable from the getgo. Then about an hour or so into the flight the Direct TV service ended as well. It was pretty frustrating since I finished the book I brought with me during the first hour of the flight."
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Cons: "The TVs were not working and shutting off sporadically."
Pros: "Friendly crew & pilot!"
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Excellent condition"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "You have to pay for food. In th pass food was included with the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was mediocre."
Cons: "Crew, comfort and food was poor, and just overall it was poor."
Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."
Pros: "Even though we had a nonrefundable fare, when due to "Quinn" we couldn't get to our extra-early flight, they put us on the next flight, and actually got us seats together. Nice work!!"
Pros: "Got our tickets nice and cheap. Made it home safe and sat beside a cool person"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't go back, so sleeping was difficult. Staff seemed a bit annoyed with everyone."
Cons: "2 hour delay and gate changes were ridiculous"
Pros: "I loved the roomy leather seats. The staff and crew were very helpful."
Cons: "New staff was working at the airport New building) and had some issues, but not a Jet Blue problem."

Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Entertainment does not work , remote also not working . My wife flew back to NTC from Seatle on first class and the chair can not recline , sitting straight up for the entire flight.

I had an oversized bag. The process of dropping my bag was dreadful. There was a single agent accepting over sized bags and a line out the door. Delta must fix this disaster.

Landed early, then had to wait an hour on an active runway.

Pros: "Best flight so far. Thanks"
Cons: "Bumped from original seat. But that was ok."
Pros: "The Flight Personnel was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The gate attendants were extremely helpful in boarding this flight despite delays at the destination. They accommodated everyone and did their best to deliver efficiency."
Cons: "There were select in-flight crewembera that not only spoke rudely to passengers but also openly discriminated against passengers on board. They openly stated "It's always easier up front, isn't it?" They were openly rude and impatient with a group of passengers who clearly needed their interpretor and refused to provide any guidance when they group was nervous about missing their connection due to the delayed flight (they did actually miss their connection and were left to "look at the boards outside.") I personally experienced direct rudeness that was simply beyond what should be considered acceptable. A gentleman attendant was pouring ice into his bucket and due to a leak in the bag, she was pouring water all over my entire jacket sitting on my lap. Stunned by this, I loudly asked him to please stop and proceeded to ask for napkins. His response was "it's just water, it's not a big deal." I responded to say, "it's actually on my enitre jacket and I need to check that it didn't hit my laptop in my bag" and the response was "it's just water...you don't need to yell at me." I genuinely was frustrted but by no means was yelling. I was handed napkins and when he finally saw just how much water he had poured onto my jacket (the entire half of the jacket was soaked)...the response from the attendant was "Oh, now that I see how much it is...I actually am sorry." Implying..he previously actually wasn't sorry at all. I say with FULL certainty that had I been sitting "up front" or in first class...the apology would have been immediate and freely offered and would not have come with a degree measurement of damages. I am a loyal Delta flyer and more and more so I'm finding it hard to stay loyal to an airline with staff that continues to disappoint and concurrently creates such difficulties throughout the booking process."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Loved that we all had our own TV's with free movies available. And loved that we were all served free food."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "Delta flight attendants were much more pleasant and friendly than any other airlines. They made my red-eye flight comfortable."
Cons: "Trying to board was a mess. It was disorganised and inefficient."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "I hate that American Airlines doesn’t sign seats together even when there are spots available."
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "Clean plane, fast boarding process."
Cons: "No power to charge a device. This really is unacceptable in today’s world."
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Pros: "They had the AC on while we were waiting on the plane at the gate for 1.5hours"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed for 2 hours, information was inaccurate/missing, they knew we'd miss our connections but did nothing except, "they'll deal with it in San Francisco" and when we landed there was no one in sight to help us--no escorts/expedite to gates, no one to tell us where to get rebooked, and after going back and forth between terminals, waited in line an hour to get rebooked on a series of flights that would get me in 22hrs later after my original flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "It was crowded"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great! A huge selection of movies for all."

Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic."
Pros: "American Sirlines flight # AA1249. Was a poor experience. Flight was over an hour late due to flight crew had not arrived. The plane was too small for such a long flight Los Angeles to Atlanta. Took an hour to collect our baggage from baggage claim. I will try to Avoid American Airlines on the future."
Cons: "Out would be helpful if there was a visual cure at boarding of what group is "now boarding". It's not always possible too hear over the noise. You also might as well tell group 3 and 4 passengers to check luggage in advance to encourage an on time gate departure."
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Cons: "They need to update their planes. No tvs, no ports to charge phone, not many food options for longer flights."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "Nice crew on time pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Better service, more food options"
Pros: "Very comfortable B777-300 got me to catch some much-needed sleep on my flight, even with a lot of people on-board!"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "It arrived early."

Cons: "the flight was delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "The self- entertainment is really an inconvenience especially when the internet doesn’t work. Babies were crying the entire time. comfort wise the headboard is uncomfortable and annoying."
Cons: "the fact that I had to pay extra for legroom"
Pros: "The on time performance and good friendly crew"
Cons: "The seat where I sat had minimum recline"
Pros: "Frankly, I didn't like anything. Flying economy, even economy plus for more than 2 hours is not comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system had an annoying buzz in the system."
Pros: "We upgraded to more leg room since our flight to LA was terrible."
Pros: "the warm baked goods when we landed"
Cons: "not so much leg space"
Cons: "The flight was 1.5hrs late. AND they booked me and some guy in the same uncomfortable, steerage class seat, so during boarding I had to stand in the back like an idiot while they figured out who to move."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Nothing else was acceptable about the travel on this plane."
Cons: "I was made to check in my carry on bag because United made this Economy Basic ticket where they fly the over head bins empty. They charge 25 for the checked bag and only allow a personal item on board. This idiotic arrangement wasn't even clear to me during booking. And i don't understand what sense it makes to create an entire class of passengers stripped of their luggage. It's definitely not customer-centric approach. The wifi was dead. It is ALWAYS dead. No entertainment was provided. I'd prefer the flights from the 90s where i could watch a film on a shared screen with headphones."
Cons: "Customer service is Zero."
Pros: "We had a comfortable, on time, and uneventful trip in the "friendly skies" of United. Can't ask for more."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "One of The Malé african American flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi did not work meaning we had zero entertainment From Califórnia to New York. To make things worse, we left at 6:30am pacific and landed at 2:40 eastern with nothing to eat. My girlfriend is diabetic só thank God we had a chocolate bar"
Cons: "Tv was broken"
Pros: "crew members friendly and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "More leg room and need better snacks"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Smooth flight good communication from the cockpit flight crew was good"
Cons: "The temperature inside the plane was too hot"
Pros: "The flight, the service, the attendants - everyone was kind and stress-free with the holiday rush. Flight was a touch delayed, but that's to be expected. I'm impressed by the way United does things."
Cons: "BUT WHY DO THEY PUT CREAM CHEESE ON EVERY MEAL? WHY?"
Pros: "Everything went well with United at LAX. Baggage check-in and boarding were very easy. Interesting and fun entertainment options made the flight go extremely fast. Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Leg room seems to be getting smaller and smaller in economy class; could barely move in my window seat."
Pros: "United is so caring and considerate. ❤️"
Cons: "I was flying with 3 others and my screen didn't worked at all and 1 earphone port didn't worked from the other guys and when we asked the flight attendants what she can do she answered that she can't do anything"
Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "The seating selection and comfort was below parr"
Pros: "All of the above"
Pros: "Better leg room than I recalled last time I flew this airline! No claustrophobia! Much better than our overseas leg. Airline attendants were sweeter than sugar which was a nice change after Air NZ. Purchased meal (sandwich)was reasonably priced and satisfying"
Cons: "The entertainment system was nice but would like to have seen more choices (and episodes for sitcoms). It was a 5 hour flight and the wifi wasn't very strong compared to similar flights, so we were very reliant on the entertainment system."

Pros: "Screens that had free movies and music"
Cons: "I caught a cold"
