Airline reviews

Pros: "Easy and simple."
Cons: "Waiting to be boarded."

Pros: "The crew was terrific"

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

Cons: "The air conditioning on the flight was not working right. It was very hot for the entire flight."

Pros: "Free baggage check and upgraded to "Premium" class was an awesome surprise!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great flight all around"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Holding a plane for 20 minutes for flight attendants to show up. The flight was only 1.5 hours, we didn't really need flight attendants. On top of that, flight attendant Angel was pretty rude, told another flight attendant that she should make people wait when trying to get back to their seat and the drink cart is in the aisle. Ended up paying for in flight wifi to tell them my flight was late. Overal this was an awful flight."

Pros: "I liked the direct flight."
Cons: "We returned to Sacramento, and my bag was "lost". The bag attendant suggested it was hung up on the belt. Our neighbors had to circle the airport while we dealt with her. We went home without my bag. Thirty minutes after we were home, the bag attendant called and said they had my bag. We returned to the airport to pick it up because they could/would not guarantee that it would be delivered safely. The attendant said that it was there on another belt. NOT, because I actually checked before we left. Then, she didn't want to give us the Measly $50 voucher. Ugh, still upset a week later."

Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "The entertainment portion was very nice easy to navigate. The staff was attentive and the food was ok and plentiful."
Cons: "The staff did not speak very good English and certainly lacked any smiles. Both flights where late arriving. Bathrooms half way through definitely needed to be cleaned."

Pros: "On time departure. Very friendly flight attendants. Anther SMOOTH landing. Good pilots."
Cons: "Loud sound system."

Pros: "Always excellent service--maintain lower fees consistently for the average traveler!--other airlines keep gouaching average travelers with higher and higher fees! And other airlines seem like getting the most money out of the traveler is of utmost importance..."

Pros: "Very fast and friendly service. Easy flight with no issues at all."

Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."

Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."

Cons: "Nothing I can think of."

Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"

Pros: "Clean plane and good service."
Cons: "Other passengers were snotty butt-tards"

Pros: "On the ground ..TSA said I needed a new boarding pass..3 kiosck wouldn't. Work. Friendly re sent me to Alaska desk where they printed me a new boarding pass but when I went to TSA. I had no passport. Sooooo..back to t he Alaska desk and a wonderful rep named Diane helped me hunt through all my "stuff"...then began talking to all reps helping process passengers. She never gave up. And found my passport at the desk that had made me a new boarding pass. I was so upset I couldn't think straight but she did!, many thanks to this kind lady."

Pros: "Complimentary wine and beer."
Cons: "Didn't board on time but not a big deal."

Pros: "Everything went perfectly, staff was pleasant and accommodating. Flight was comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I they had negetive stars I would use them. From Jessica at check-in in Maui to the flight attendants. Alaska air needs to retrain their employees on customer service. I'm not sure if something was going on or the employees don't like their jobs but what's horrible experience."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."

Pros: "Overall every about you all was excellent"
Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. For the first time I paid for a snack, it was very good."
Cons: "The man sitting on my left smelled so strongly of cologne that by the time we landed I was sick. I have severe allergies and the smell triggered those allergies. The woman who sat on my right was also having difficulty with the strong smell. If the plane had not been completely full I would have asked to be seated somewhere away from him."

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Music blaring during disembark"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous staff. Thanks!"

Pros: "Too cold!"

Cons: "My daughter asked for gum or candy for the landing and was completely blown off. Her first flight she had problems on landing with her ears, the second flight to Sacramento she was balling by the time she landed due to the pain. She was ignored when trying to tell someone how bad the pain was, and when asking for something to suck on to help relieve the pain."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."

Pros: "They still had the door open as we rushed to catch the flight."

Pros: "Fleas. I was seated less than 10 minutes before I began being bitten on my legs. So, on my remaining flights I sparayed myself with Off!"

Pros: "Flight was short and sweet ♡ the spicy poms to juice"

Pros: "Crew was fun. Flight was mostly very smooth. we arrived on time to our destination."
Cons: "aisle-side armrest was digging into my hip the entire trip, but as a big guy I sort of expect that on airplanes."

Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet!! It was my sons first flight so they not only moved our seats so that he could have a window view but they also gave him a one on one with the pilots who gave him a pendant with wings :) He was beyond thrilled!! I have only great things to say about our experience with this airline!"

Pros: "All staff were so friendly and funny! I always find this to be the case when I fly. Considering how affordable the tickets always are, this really is the airline for all."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Another flight, another last-minute gate change"

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was smooth. The flight attendants were so accommodating and seemed to really care about the passengers."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were great"
Cons: "We were in security checkpoint line 1hour and 45 minutes before our flight. It wasn't moving. A crew member pulled people for c gate from the line saying it would be faster but when we asked if we should also use the other checkpoint we were told to just stay put. We asked a second member who was coming from the other checkpoints direction and her response was curt and uninformative. We literally ran as soon as we could and got the door shut also literally in our faces at the gate. We felt a bit let down, seeing later that our timing in the multi lane checkpoint would have undoubtedly been sufficient. The checkpoint we used was funneled into one scanner and we were informed at the customer service counter when we rebooked that that checkpoint was knowingly understaffed. I like flying Alaska but was quite disappointed to be left waiting another four hours after a seven hour layover."

Cons: "free snacks contained dairy, few healthy options everything else was"

Pros: "Great flight crew!"
Cons: "Gate staff lacking professionalism"

Pros: "There was one nice customer service agent that tried to help me"

Pros: "Flight was flawless!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On Time Seats ok."
Cons: "Poor food choices."

Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."

Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "I tried to check-in my husband and I online but i was unsuccessful and the only option besides us citizen was visa. My husband does not have a visa he has he’s resident card but there was no option for me to select besides visa. once i arrived i was told I would have to be on standby since I did not check in ... I told the air flight assistant I was unable to do so because when I would input my husbands information who is currently a resident there was no option.. she said some airlines don’t let you check in online because they have restricted online procedures... I paid for my ticket which means I paid for my seat... I always travel with Aeroméxico for the reason as I love the customer care We receive and never have issues and I was pretty confused as to why I encountered this situation... I would really appreciate that Aeroméxicos online process works for both citizens and residents to make it easier on everyone.. but i also want to thank the staff because even though I was given bad news and awaiting to see if I would fly back on time as a stand by, they were able to get me back to my home without me missing work...I can’t enforce enough to please look into into you’re online check in to make it fair for all boarders to check in ... thank you"

Cons: "24hrs in advance, the flight was delayed over 6hrs"

Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."

Pros: "The a accommodations for my mother who is handicapped."

Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."

Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"

Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"

Pros: "Allot"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was polite and attentive, and I appreciated the meal."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane got very cold once we reached peak altitude - folks in my row felt the same. The flight lacked wifi and power outlets, but it's a budget flight so that is acceptable. However, some budget flights/airlines do offer that."

Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"

Pros: "The onlt airline providing every pasanger with Free drinks and food. Live the beer and mix Tequila drinks."
Cons: "I did not like paying $50 us for the second bag i thing $ 25 its ok 50 its to much... I need ir to Boeing chese and tequila so my carry on bag tas over waigt so i check ir in."

Pros: "Overall great experience."

Pros: "My husband and I enjoyed the convenience of the direct flight. It was so much better than spending several hours in airports just to save a few dollars."

Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."

Cons: "They charge a lot of money for luggage, thats not fear"

Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"

They didn’t refund my money! It’s robbery!"

Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."

Cons: "Boarding took along time."

Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"

Pros: "Crew is pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Boarding process is incomprehensible and had nothing to do with your location on the plane. Very inefficient, particularly on a large 777. Pilot was very quick and used "beyond our control" as an excuse for every delay. 6 hour delay in Buenos Aires and 1 hour on the tarmac in Guadalajara. Reading light didn't work and TV screen was unwatchable."

Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."

Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"

Cons: "Boarded and sat in hot plane with AC off for 15 minutes"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The entertainment was awesome. Made the flight time go very quickly...Proceso de check in no es de lo mejor, después no tiene servicio de entrenimientos, pero ofrece un refrigerio que otras compañías aéreas no brindan."

Cons: "The plane had to go back to Guadalajara after 1hour of flight due to mechanical problems, they had to put us on another plane ,it was scary."

Cons: "The thing I did not like is that I call Aeromexico to pay for the extra loggage tha I had before my fly and the person that I talk to told me that everything was all paid for and when I got to the airport guess what, The extra luggage was not paid so they charge a lot more than what I would have paid the first time a call."

Pros: "The professionalism. The accuracy of arriving and the plane itself was very clean."

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: "Be on time !!!!"

Pros: "I didn’t interact with the crew but they seems nice."
Cons: "The trip from HonoluIu to Los Angeles was too warm."

Cons: "The WiFi I was terrible other than that great flight"

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: "Be on time. Plus we were in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passenger more seat room."

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: "Andres was so nice. Amazing actually"
Cons: "They boarded us then we had to switch planes. Delayed an hour"

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: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"

Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"

Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."

Cons: "Hour delay"

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "The crew managed to serve a glass of water. No snack, not even a bag of pretzels. They managed to collect trash four times. Again, they barely acknowledged the passengers. What happened to customer service?"

Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"

Cons: "Left with plenty of time but: -Terrible traffic! More than 3 hrs -Had to wait 30 min for shuttle -At airport they said flight was via American, other terminal. My paper from Kayak says Air Alaska -Terminal for flight uses separate bldg so shuttles to terminal , more time needed."

Pros: "Arrived early"

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

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

Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"

Cons: "Very cold airplane"

Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."

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

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"

Cons: "Flight was very delayed"

Cons: "The long delay was terrible"

Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."

Pros: "Dunno"
Cons: "Dunno"

Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."

Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"

Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."

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: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"

Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."

Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"

Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"

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

Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."

Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"

Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"

Pros: "Price was right"

Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."

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

Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"

Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"

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: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."

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: "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: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long walk to gate"

Pros: "Take off and landing very good"

Pros: "Drinks"
Cons: "Absence of entertainment"

Cons: "0% leg room :("

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: "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"

Pros: "Not much. We did arrive alive, which is the best part of it."
Cons: "First flight of the day took off late because of a mechanical issue. Couldn't they fix it during the night?"

Pros: "Great crew, boarding process, drink service"
Cons: "No entertainment or food served on flight for free"

Cons: "Very late"

Cons: "Flights from SMF to ORD to IND included on board flight entertainment at no cost. Flight from IND to ORD it was included. However from ORD back to SMF there was a fee. For the amount of money paid for the flight and for someone on a tight budget, this was extremely disappointing."

Cons: "Customer service was terrible. I was told I was not their customer and they wouldn't help me. When the agents sent me away for the 2nd time, after promising to hold the door, I returned and the agent closed it in my face."

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

Pros: "same as obove"
Cons: "same as above"

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: ""Dish Network TV" $7 for every 2 hours, if you don't pay they just repeat the add in front of you for the entire flight. So greedy. This is why Delta is so much better. Tons of movies, newer, and FREE. United Airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Smaller plane enhanced comfort"
Cons: "Did not use entertainment app"

Pros: "Close gate our connection."
Cons: "More trouble and delay on take off."

Pros: "Same as above. I miss the old days of magazines as some of us cannot pay for the Wi-Fi"
Cons: "You have very good crew people. There was a male flight Ttendant Chicago to Sac whoncalmlynand deftly handled a grouchy passenger People get testy on long uncomfortable flights. He handled this guy very well."

Cons: "Yyyy Ggggggggggffggvfggggdswfgggfffffrffgfggggfffff"

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: "Leg room"
Cons: "Staff in main cabin was nasty"

Cons: "Understandable they could not help about weather, but was terrible about keeping us updated."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and customer service oriented."
Cons: "Seating, lack of leg room, no in-flight entertainment to even pay for, cost for said trip, food and drink costly."

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"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Little delay"

Pros: "No bad weather, no bad experiences, all good."
Cons: "Again, N/A"

Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"

Cons: "Delays delays delays"

Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"

Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."

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: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."

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

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"

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

Pros: "Enjoyed it"

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: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"

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."
