Cons: "I had hoped for an entertainment pad and wasn’t given one or even offered one"

Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."

Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."

Pros: "In flight crew was super great!"
Cons: "The comfort of those Horizon turbo prop planes leave EXTREME room for improvement. I normally won't even fly on them, they are loud, uncomfortable, reek of burnt fuel, etc. but Alaska was not offering JetBlue service for some unknown reason during my needed travel dates."

Pros: "Efficient and competent. One of the better airlines out there."

Pros: "Plane was on time and crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I would of liked something else than crackers"

Cons: "Nothing to add"

Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."

Pros: "A working outlet at every seat is excellent"
Cons: "No food options for low carb no junk food diets"

Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"

Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."

Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Extremely long wait before takeoff. If the plane hasn't been inspected and readied for take-off why board passengers and make them sit in the cramped uncomfortable seats?"

Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."

Pros: "Plane was comfortable and boarding was very efficient."

Pros: "Everything was conducted professionally and calmly."
Cons: "The weather was bad, but the airline does not control that. ;)"

Pros: "Crew is nice. Entertainment is great if you pay for it."
Cons: "I didn't like that the gentleman sitting next to me spilled over into my seat. He needed a belt extender. I think he should have purchased two seats if thats the case. I did not buy my seat to share it. I think they should be more mindful of who they let on stand by if it is the in between seat. Also, we were delayed because we waited for another connecting flight. Luckily we made it on time. They just in formed us after we all boared and we sat on the plane for another 45 minutes. No sorry, no accommodation. We just had to suck it up. Really?"

Pros: "Nice clean airplanes. Quick and timely flights."

Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."

Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."

Pros: "Great way to quickly get from Portland to Boise."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpfull attendants Very smooth flight on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I booked the flight which goes from PDX to Vancouver and Vancouver to ICN. I was going to take the Alaska Airline to go to Vancouver, but I couldn't board the flight because I didn't have a visa for Cannada. You should notice me if I need the visa or not when I booked this flight. Because of this, I should change the flight which took extra charge. Moreover, I lost my baggage between this situation."

Cons: "Same comment on boarding procedures."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy,"
Cons: "When boarding very annoying to have different people announcing the flights etc at the same time in our gate area ( different flights different hates ) all talking at the same time drowning Thor messages out, unable to hear who was talking about what. Gold star, military, baby mama's, seat numbers etc"

Cons: "Passport card not valid for travel, could not take flight."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Food, drinks deboarding is awful, just awful experience"

Pros: "Seats weren’t too bad, the plane was clean, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Our flight kept getting delayed due to paper work AFTER we boarded. There were also a lot of people on the plane and no social distancing."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Not canceling the flight with no reason given."

Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."

Pros: "Room pretty good!"
Cons: "More walking room!!long flight!"

Cons: "Late boarding, WiFi didn’t work. Small seats. Why do I continue to fly you guys?"

Pros: "This seats on this flight were very comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issue with a lens on one of the plane's exterior lights."

Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"

Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"

Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."

Pros: "Ease of bording"

Cons: "Your seats are small and you never turn the fasten seatbelt light off"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Despite having a boarding pass with an assigned seat, Avianca would not let me board. My seat was given to someone else. There was no explanation as to why I no longer had a reserved seat. I had to wait until the next morning to get a flight to Cusco. My hotel reservation in Cusco for the night could not be refunded so I am out $400."

Cons: "Pd for seat upgrade so I could have leg room as I injured piriformis. Gate agent wanted to seat 2 people together so took away my chosen seat. I explained but she lied and said person was in wheelchair. Got on board and took photos of young woman seated - not in wheelchair and was up walking. Agent lied and was nasty. Ruined entire trip as I was not able to move much or stretch my injured leg. Am still in pain as I type this review. Complained to AA. Agent was so nasty! Should not be allowed to work with passengers. Fire her!"

Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Cons: "Flight was delayed hour and a half for a preventable mechanical issue. Issue was known about night before and not addressed. I missed one of two meetings because of Americans inability to excel at running an airline"

Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"

Pros: "Non stop and an on time arrival after 20 min delay at phl when no gate agent could deplane previous flight. After being re-ticketed from overbooked united flight all in all not bad at all."
Cons: "They happen from time to time,... from many unassigned seats causing long gate line where several butted to the front to random noises during the flight from passengers to 6 bathroom trip guy just weird all around. Plus the multiple gate changes by PHL which are to be expected. Just a regular PHL departure,..."

Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."

Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Pilots flew great. We arrived a few mins early as well."
Cons: "On the way to Denver from Miami we were on a nice new AA plane with TV entertainment, movies, power, and comfortable seats. On the way from Denver to Miami we were on an old plane with no entertainment and old uncomfortable seats. If this is going to be the case, charge me less up front as well. My daughter had a terrible time for a 4 hour flight."

Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"

Pros: "that i finally came home"

Cons: "Just never enough leg room❗️"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "No food offered on 1st leg, but it was on the menu card."

Pros: "That we arrived safely and that the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats again with no head rest. I have not had this on any flight of any length for a very long time. Most seats have the adjustable head rest. WHO EVER HEARD OF HAVING TO PAY ADDITIONAL FOR SEATS. AND I PAID TWO TIMES AS I CHANGED MY FLIGHT TO AN EXIT ROW SO PAID DOUBLE...TWO TIMES WHICH IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY."

Pros: "The seat I was given was very comfortable Entertainment was good selection"
Cons: "Food was cardboard, not terribly exciting, the cold air was too much and then it became it really warm - not sure what that was"

Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Comfort and other services were among the best I've experienced ever flying."

Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."

Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."

Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"

Pros: "My business class flight"

Cons: "Had to cancel cruise but could not cancel flights without paying fees that were half the fare price. Would have been cheaper if we bought direct from the airline."

Cons: "90 minutes sitting on the cramped plane after boarding because of a maintenance issue."

Pros: "Liked having an exit row seat, appreciated being given a full can of soda, and loved the in-flight entertainment options as I was able to watch two recently released movies."
Cons: "Leg and knee space stink for basic economy, especially as a big guy (6'4")."

Cons: "Flight delayed going to and from my destination with no compensation. My bag I had to wait for it to come on the next flight and had to wait 2 hours for it."

Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"

Cons: "No entertainment at all for this cross country trip."

Cons: "Internal America Airlines connection was delayed so my luggage never made it on to my international flight and then it took 2days for them to get it sent over!"

Cons: "The only downfall of the flight was the seating. Having to pay extra for an emergency exit row to get more leg room isn't good practice."

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."

Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE."

Pros: "seats were pretty cramped in economy"

Pros: "Good service and no delays"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Connection time in Vancouver is horrible and international transfer process is awful Especially with small children"

Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."

Pros: "It was on time - no delays"
Cons: "Would have liked some snacks along with the drinks offered."

Cons: "Lost our bags for 3days"

Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."

Cons: "A lady threw up on my hardcover book. And I had to move from a windo to a middle seat. Overall it was not a nice experience."

Cons: "We had a hard time reserving seats in advance"

Pros: "Different announcements for boarding occurred almost simultaneously, making it hard to understand what was being said."

Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."

Pros: "Seats seemed more comfortable then westjet"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service. Rude workers"

Pros: "Price"

Cons: "Delayed, emergency landing, 3 hrs late arrival"

Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. 1.5 hrs was barely enough to get through baggage claim, customs, baggage recheck, customs again, subway ride to Denver United terminal and sprint 30 gates only to make it 1 minute before the gate closed."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "They delayed the flight like 5 different times and then the luggage took over a half hour"

Cons: "More time was spent by cabin attendees selling food and drink items to one row than the rest of the passengers, making us wait for complementary water or other drinks . Really? There should be equal service for all passengers. Makes me wonder if there are incentives for the sale of extra items"

Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "So incredibly cramped and no seat screens to watch movies. Bumpy that that’s no ones fault."

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and professional."

Pros: "The professionalism and attitude of staff was excellent. Also in Prem Economy the leg room was good."
Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."

Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"

Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "We will never fly united... NEVER EVER AGAIN"
Cons: "United airlines employee Mearle at the check in counter was extremely disrespectful, Rude, and arrogant towards everyone in line at the counter Trying to check in. Many customers including us waitted in the check in line for 35 minutes or more while Mearle proceeded to chat on her cell phone (personal call), and taking a break leaning the check in counter while everyone waited on her so she could assist with check in. Finally the passengers in front of us voice their concern to mearle stating that everyone is going to miss theirs flights if she didn't assist us all right away. Mearle responded by snapping back by saying "it's not my fault that united keep us understaffed and pay us enough to care " then laughed and walked away again. At this point we realized that if we did not get immediate assistance, that we would surly miss our flight. I walked in front of the line on behalf of everyone standing in line and reiterated to Mearle in a firm tone that she insisting check in the remaining 12 passengers immediately. Mearle snapped back telling me to "worry about my own self and don't tell me how to do my own job". Feeling very stressed out And worried about missing my flight went and stood back in line again. A few moments later I over heard Mearle tell the passengers ahead of us " you're too late. You've missed your flight" these passengers became very upset with Mearle telling her that she's the reason they missed the flight and Mearle laughed and said out loud to everyone else in line.. "you all missed your flight. You all should be more responsible next time and get here earlier" and then Mearle walked away never to be see again. Many of us missed our flight which caused many of us to also miss our connecting flights. We immediately called the 800 number and filed a complaint. Then we were forced to drive three hours in traffic to LAX where we caught a later flight and barely made it to our destination in time for our work event. We swore that because of Mearle and her disgusting behavior that we will never ever fly united again (and I fly a lot for my job) and since that horrible experience with Mearle two months ago, I've flown on four trips spending over $2300 dollars and every flight has been booked through American Airlines. Do to Mearle's bad attitude, disrespectful personality, and poor representation of united we will never do business with united again. We suggest united airlines remove Mearle from Having any contact with the general public as we are sure that Mearle is loosing customers for united at a very rapid pace."

Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."

Cons: "Very tight quarters ..."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."

Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."

Pros: "My seat"

Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."

Pros: "United canceled my flightl"
Cons: "United canceled my flightl"

Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."

Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long taxi to terminal at LAX"

Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Pros: "Quick and friendly service. No lines through TSA"

Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"

Pros: "Always a good fight, very short."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"

Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."

Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."

Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"

Pros: "Adequate work-around by an alert and helpful United Customer Service rep in LAX."
Cons: "We had to take this flight rather than a direct from LAX to SBA after missing our scheduled flight sitting on the tarmac for an HOUR waiting for our terminal to be vacated by an international flight with "mechanical problems." Four extra hours in transit!"

Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."

Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Lack of meal service"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"

Cons: "My flight from Santa Barbara to SFO was delayed, causing me to miss my connection. After sitting in the Santa Barbara airport until 11pm, I was rebooked and sent home."

Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays.
