Pros: "Check in was fast. Airport was hassle free. Uber was easy."
Pros: "Alaska's crew are routinely friendly, warm, yet no-nonsense, and I love this about them. They worked hard to keep very tired early-morning passengers from rioting during a long delay. I also enjoyed seeing our flight attendant serving some serious unimpressed face to a woman who was being an entitled diva."
Cons: "Our pilot disappeared for our 6am flight (reassigned to another flight or something), leaving us waiting on the tarmac while another was still driving to the airport, apparently. When a whole flight of people has gotten up to get to the airport at 4am for a flight that early, this kind of logistical snafu is incredibly frustrating -- plus, most of us wouldn't choose a flight that early if we didn't have somewhere to be."
Cons: "Hour long wait on the tarmac at SJC was uncomfortable at best"
Pros: "USB & Ports for all chargers"
Cons: "Didn't get my seat assignment until after boarding because flight was overbooked"

Cons: "Asked at check-in if my barcode was ok to use bc I did not receive an automated email for return check-in, she said "Let me see, yes that's good, but hurry up because you have 40min before your plane departs". Low and behold, security said my barcode was not valid and had to run back and forth to get a new one printed. What made it worse was the check in clerk wanted to argue her point and there was only one flight attendant available and boarding closed 12min prior to departure, I was standing and waiving through the gates window trying to get all the flight attendants attention. I could have made it but missed my flight. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "Leg room, boarding"

Pros: "Boarding was a few minutes early (versus the typical few minutes late), it was easy, plenty of room/clearance for my stuffed roller carry on, comfy seats, great service throughout.

Pros: "Delta is my favorite airline. Smaller planes with two seats two a row."
Cons: "I was told to check my luggage even though there was still overhead bin space."
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather.

Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"

Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing.

Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."

Cons: "Good airlines"

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: "flight on time"
Pros: "Awesome crew, chill experience !"

Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."

Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."

Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"
Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."
Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."
Pros: "Everything was on point"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."
Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."

Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and this is the second time Emerican airline will not give us at least food vouchers to help us out. The receptionist act careless about your situation, I'm still Stuck in Phili where I wa supposed to meet my connection flight, I had to spent the night at the airport!!! American air line is know for this type of dilemma, I will never again fly with American again. I just don't understand how they are not liable for anything at all!!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."
Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."
Pros: "Service was terrific."
Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."
Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"
Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"
Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Pros: "the large Wide body plan"
Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."
Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "It was good overall"
Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."
Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."
Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed so when I landed I had to run to the terminal to see if I can Catch my second flight I was worried my whole flight because I thought that I was going to miss the second flight and that my vacation was going to be delayed. Luckily they had not taken off and I think that they waited for us thank God and the crew"
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. I was in the last row and was lulled to sleep by the engines."
Cons: "I had to check my second bag because they had no room for it in the bins. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I got to take it for no charge, and didn't have to lug it through the sirport."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
