Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was awesome and they really made the flight so much better. I loved how short the flight was - just 58 minutes from Vancouver to Portland."
Cons: "This is a turbo-prop commuter flight, so it's fairly noisy; also, there are no USB charge ports or entertainment system."

Pros: "Fast flight; clean cabin: tv screens at every seat"

Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Change gate not done properly"

Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"

Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."

Cons: "first class service"

Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."

Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew provided exceptional service. They were caring, attentive, and very helpful from the time we arrived at the airport in San Francisco until we landed at Washington Dulles."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived half an hour before schedured"
Cons: "The plane is not clean, seat very small I am not a fat person"

Pros: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."

Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and no one could explain why."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Our flight attendants were fantastic."
Cons: "The application I had to download had cookies."

Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."

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: "Service"

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers."

Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"

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: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"

Pros: "Usually we fly United on a direct flight to PDX. That flight is no longer available so we chose Alaska to Seattle. Their entertainment and internet actually works making them a better option than United. Flights were on time, crew was friendly, and the aircraft was clean. No complaints with Alaskan, and actually happy to change airlines after years of being with United even though it is not a direct flight to our destination."

Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."

Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"

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

Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"

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: "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: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"

Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, easy boarding, great fast baggage claim. overall great!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."

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."

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"
Cons: "content with everything on this flight."

Pros: "Great customer service! The crew was super patient with me and a flight issue I had"
Cons: "I never like the drinks offered on a plane."

Cons: "Bag full of very expensive ski stuff lost in Vancouver somewhere---hoping I get it back!"

Pros: "Smooth flight and easy app to handle"
Cons: "Kiosks couldn't read any of my travel documents. Even thought I checked in and about my luggage 24 hours in advance I had to form the line and check in for help."

Pros: "time of flight"
Cons: "The plane was tiny. Everyone had to check standard carry-on luggage"

Pros: "Bad attitude, no info, then annoyed when we asked them anything. All the passengers kept cool and calm. Staff was terrible."

Pros: "The flight was quick and we arrived early. I had more seat room on this flight than on intercontinental planes. Very smooth landing, one of the best."
Cons: "No beverage service of any kind--trip was too quick!"

Pros: "arrived earlier"

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."

Cons: "Got delayed"

Pros: "Good on flight entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to select my seat 2 weeks out from flight. Was told by multiple delta employees I can only change at the gate. Was unable to change seat and ended up getting downgraded to middle seat middle row. Rude flight staff that barked at the passengers"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

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: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"

Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

Cons: "Our brand new stroller was damaged on our flight."

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."

Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"

Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"

Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"

Pros: "Excellent"

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

Pros: "The ticket agents and other airport personnel were tremendously understanding and helpful! As a matter of fact, a few said this happens more often than it should, which is sad and shocking! Had it not been for their help this would have been much worse!!!"
Cons: "Our original flight included a connection that overlapped and needed to be changed. I brought this to the attention of Kayak/Aeromexico and the flight appeared to changed for our entire party of six. When we arrived to depart from Akron-Canton there were MAJOR issues with Delta acknowledging the change on their end. We waited at check-in for an hour and half before this was resolved. This also happened when we left Cancun and almost missed our flight. Our daughter also had to put on stand-by in Atlanta due to this fiasco. We spent another two hours working with Delta customer service trying to get her a seat on our flight back to Akron-Canton. Had we not been to Cancun airport extra early AND had our flight delayed in Atlanta we would have missed both flights. This was without a doubt the worse experience we have ever had!! It should have been caught and resolved before I ever had to get involved. I am very disappointed and unhappy with the service offered for the tickets we purchased. This was extremely stressful for my wife and kids and tarnished our vacation. This was totally and completely avoidable!!! You can and should do better to service your customers!!"

Pros: "Great experience"

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: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Pros: "Easy"

Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."

Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"

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: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"

Cons: "The airport crew at the check-in desk was rude"

Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Pros: "Good seats."

Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"

Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."

Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"
Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Cons: "See above description"

Cons: "Extreme delays"

Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."

Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."

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: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"

Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."

Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."

Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."

Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."

Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."

Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"

Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"

Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."

Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."

Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"

Pros: "many movies"

Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."

Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"

Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."

Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."

Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."

Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."

Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."

Pros: "Quick, efficient"

Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."

Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"

Cons: "Very cold airplane"

Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."

Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."

Cons: "Cero entretaintment"

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"

Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."

Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."

Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"

Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."

Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"

Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."

Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"

Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."

Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."

Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."

Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."

Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"

Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"

Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"

Pros: "The new tinted windows are cool"

Pros: "There was good food and entertainment"
Cons: "I'd like better vegetarian options for food though"

Pros: "Flight was fine. Staff was fine. No complaints."
Cons: "Although the food was abundant and tasted good, it was rather heavy. Lots of starch (and chocolate!). That kind of food may be fun and satisfying, but it's not really the best thing for middle-aged adults who are sitting on an airplane for 10 hours! If you can work in more fruits and veggies or light desserts, that would be great! Regarding entertainment: We could not connect to the entertainment system, so we watched a DVD that we brought along with us."

Pros: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."

Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."

Pros: "The flight crew were great and very accommodating."
Cons: "A majority of the passengers on flight either barely caught, or missed, their connecting flight due to this flight being so delayed."

Cons: "I booked my flight from Vancouver to Kiev The first flight it's to Toronto then to Kiev.. and when Went to the counter in Kiev they said sorry but Turkish airline didn't send my booking to kanda airline so I missed all my flight schedule I didn't wait I bought another ticket to Kiev in the same date on Lufthansa airline And it cost me like 1945c$"

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "nice screen, but need to bring your own earplugs or pay to get a pair. toilet was clean, seat was quite comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "the reading light from next seat passenger was disturbing me a lot, spotting on my head & arm and it was really warm.. no room to store bag below front seat"

Pros: "In flight Game of Thrones!!"
Cons: "The lines at YVR were horrendous."

Pros: "the accommodation of the carry on in the compartments, it is absolutely disturbing and dangerous; specially and such of huge plane like the one I flew. Passengers should have the right to have a least 1 registered for free luggage to avoid such of chaos, possible injuries and delays. i feel horrible for the flight attendants for such of task of carrying and moving so many luggages."
Cons: "The fact that traveling International for so many hours, I was treated like I was flying Domestic. No, food, no drinks. In the past airlines complained about cost of fuel, gas, but now is cheaper and we PASSANGERS never have any consideration flying. Another fact is the seatis are too small, I had to share my seat with two overweight women and they occupied part of my space, I was so uncomfortable, I requested for another seating and was not possible due to the fullness of the plain. I standed up many time not rubber and feel the heat of that person on my left side. overweight people should be suggested to buy double seating."

Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."

Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."

Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."

Cons: "Missed the flight"

Cons: "Wasn't offered a drink or food for 2 hours into the flight. Then when they reached me, all the options were sold out. I had crackers and hummus for lunch. I am pregnant and travelling alone with a toddler and was told by a flight attendant they were suppose to help me lift my bag. Nothing major, but left an unpleasant experience compared to Westjet."

Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."

Cons: "Baggage misplaced"

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."

Cons: "I almost missed my connecting flight due to AC delaying departure in Vancouver. I received no solid information from the stewardess on the flight on whether the connecting plane in Toronto would wait. I mean, really. There was never any explanation as to why the Vancouver flight was late either."

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."

Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."

Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy which made a big difference. Lots of leg room, a menu, pre flight drinks."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pretty terrible for an international airline, charge for drinks, earbuds, no inflight entertainment without pre downloading their crappy app, which was full of ancient, terrible movies. Lots of stuff broken on plane, reading light would turn on/off randomly. Very annoying. Charger did not work, had to use the row next to us"

Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."

Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."

Pros: "I always like to fly Air Canada for long international flights. Everyone has their own TV, where you can choose what movie/TV show you want to watch, or what game you want to play. You can also pause, fast forward, and rewind at any point, which is not always possible on other airlines. The food was also very tasty. We were served two full meals and a sandwich. The alcohol was free, which was lovely too. The staff were nice and there was plenty of leg room. Overall, it was a great flight."

Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."

Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"

Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."

Pros: "At least there was food tho only banana bread for breakfast"
Cons: "No movies or entertainment for overnight flight"

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"

Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."

Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."

Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."

Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."

Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."

Pros: "The crew members were fabulous."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive when I did. I did not see my personal belongings for three days. When the second leg of my journey was cancelled, I was book on a flight with a short connection. Therefore, my luggage remained in Canada while I went on to Japan."

Pros: "Exit seat. Leg room"
Cons: "Breakfast too small. Plane leaked on me during take off and landing. 3 hour delay on plane before take off. Stewardesses ignored people looking for water."

Pros: "Each seat had it's own entertainment station. Where you could watch movies, play games, and listen to music. We received two in flight meals. While they were small, they were still enough."
Cons: "We had a delay to leave. Only an hour so it wasn't so bad. We also had a small delay when it was getting close to landing time. We did two circles to delay before we got there."

Pros: "Service was nice & early."

Pros: "Crew. Club soda. Safe landing."
Cons: "Pay for movie. Delayed plane that landed 10 minutes after boarding for connecting flight which was last flight of the night."

Pros: "Economy Basic check-in was easier than I'd expected it to be, security was quick and seamless. Once on board the aircraft, the flight crew kept us informed about possible weather issues (e.g. turbulence), including the approximate time to expect it, how long it might last, and that it would probably preclude in-flight beverage service. Flight attendants offered to provide one-at-a-time beverage service to those "really in need of a drink." I thought that was pretty gracious under the circumstances, and was happy to see that passengers didn't take advantage of the option :-). Looks like United is doing its best to counteract its recent negative publicity. Well done!"

Pros: "Take off and landing very good"

Pros: "Seemed like an older jet, so the seats felt larger and more comfortable than most newer aircraft these days. I was surprised they could land a 757 at DCA, but we did!"

Cons: "0% leg room :("

Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We upgraded to business so it was great. Crew was especially attentive."
Cons: "Couldn't recharge the iPhone. No plug."

Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."

Cons: "Unassigned seating from the beginning of the trip made the trip arduous."

Pros: "The flight was nice and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"

Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"

Cons: "Late flight and can't catch next flight on time:("

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "7.99 to watch DTV with very limited Choice you get more from Jet Blue Free The sound jack was worn out so I had to jiggle it to find the spot it worked and then hold it for 5 hrs They appear to be cutting corners"

Cons: "Bag didn't arrive on my flight"

Cons: "They lost one of our bags"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."

Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."

Pros: "Staff at airport and cabin crew were mostly nice. At airport, the ticket agent helped correct a mistake and was very helpful."
Cons: "There are TVs on the backs of chairs where they advertise that you can pay to watch shows or movies and play the safety video. That would be fine if you could just turn it off once that's done. But it was too hard to turn off, and after the safety video, they played three ads (you couldn't turn the ads off). At the end of the flight the tvs camenon again. It was also a night time flight - how can you sleep with the screen on. Also, the seat space seemed smaller than usual so the screen was in my face. I hated this flight."

Pros: "Flight attendant was personable and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, and seat belts were super short. I have never had to ask for an extender, but I did on this plane."

Pros: "Ir was good experíence"

Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"
Cons: "These seats and spaces are incredibly small, my body is so sore! Also the internet costs money? I've travelled with other airlines that include Wi-Fi for free"

Cons: "It was very delayed"

Pros: "No food or drink was served on the 35 min flight. Staff was friendly. Bag check at the walkway was very slow, but it is what it is."

Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Indifferent staff, absolutely no customer service Flight late, no food, no entertainment, seats extremely cramped, packed in like sardines, no personality at all, just attitude- get through it, provided basics, waited 20 min for first bag to appear in luggage carousel too, nothing good about it! It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"

Pros: "It was a quick flight. The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "United"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, loaded/unloaded quickly, free online entertainment was great"

Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "United app doesn't work on all my devices"

Pros: "They at least had the option for live TV on one of the flights, but wanted $8, when Southwest gives it to you free."
Cons: "The gate agent also just seemed and unpleasant in general. The leg room is the worst in the industry, it's absolutely terrible"

Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."

Pros: "Notification of the fight being delayed."
Cons: "The turbulent ride, the plane was shaking so much I thought it might fall apart! Not a good flight!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"

Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"

Pros: "Not much to like about United these days, just basic cattle car service and nickel and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."

Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."

Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."

Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"

Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."

Pros: "Everything was nice about this flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "He's a great pilot."
Cons: "That flight was so very scary.My name is Addison ( Parinaz ) Barati."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, but when you're in Premier Global whatever you go on first, so that doesn't mean much. The stewardess was nice enough, but didn't have much to offer from United."
Cons: "This was a three hour flight. I would have expected a bit more class in business class for three hours. Instead, there was wine in plastic bottles, and a basket of wrapped snacks. Yahoo."

Pros: "I like the fact that entertainment is offered over WiFi. Seats were comfortable. I really like the headrests which keep head in place."
Cons: "Snack is very small. Entertainment didn't work for me on this flight (worked fine from Chicago to Detroit) which is a shame because that was by far my longer leg of travel. Movie would play for approximately 5 to 30 seconds and then WiFi would disconnect from my phone and cause the movie to stop. Worked fine on next flight but it was short so I couldn't finish watching the movie I started. Not sure why airlines refuse to board by row from the back forward but your boarding (from window to aisle) is a reasonable compromise."

Pros: "Boarding and arrival on time, crew was courteous, and drinks and snacks were ok."
Cons: "Seating was a bit cramped and I'm not a big guy at all. There was no wifi on the plane for a 3 hour flight."

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Very unusual for a US airline. Thank you!"
Cons: "Not enough time between transit. Barely made the connecting flight. Boarding pass did not list which terminal I needed to go so when you hop in the train at O'hare, you are not exactly sure. O'hare is not well-organized. The 1 stop immigration/custom check actually was very slow. The regular check was very chaotic, with officers yelling info everywhere. Felt like I was in the market."

Pros: "I got in my final destination"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "On time Smooth ride Actually slept"

Pros: "My flight to O'hare from Reagan international was fine but my returning trip was just terrible. After spending extra hours waiting due to a delay, we were about 30 min from DCA and our flight was redirected to N.C where we spend an extra 2 hrs waiting for the plane to re fuel and the reason the airline's flew us to N.C is supposedly due to weather in D.C but i was told by locals that its hardly rained. I had spent 11hrs total in airports yesterday. I could have taken that trip via car in 12hrs and saved myself $300 bucks or more. I am beyond unsatisfied with how my travel experience was. From rude united employees to a bad flying experience i will not use united anymore and frankly, me and all the other passengers on that flight should be compensated somehow for that experience. The only easy thing about this trip was purchasing my tickets through kayak and how well there service is. Thank you"
Cons: ".."

Pros: "left on time, the wireless service on the plane is a great idea."
Cons: "they should serve free snacks"
