Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"6 hour flight no food. No TVs"
Cons: "Rude crew"
Pros: "Made the extended flight more comfortable"
Cons: "Stay clear of Diane who transferred from Columbus, OH and now works in the San Diego Airport. She targets anyone over 250 pounds and classifies them as oversized and will go through hell to charge the customer for an additional seat. Even when the plane is at half capacity."
Pros: "Service and overall cleanliness etc. was very smooth, good and clean. I sat in seat 1A both ways and as the first person to get on and off the flight found the process well laid out, easy, clean and smooth. I also got to witness the boarding process from inside while seated. Very professional and courteous all the way. The first class cabin was sparsely filled with ample space between us and based on how many people I saw getting on, I think the rear cabin must've been sparsely filled as well. More on the comfort aspect in the "what would have been bettter section" ... in short, the seats are the weakest link in the chain."
Cons: "My only gripe is about the seats fitted in first class for this Alaska Air leg (JFKSFO). Like most, my travel frequency has dropped so much that I can finally afford to pay full fare first for the few times I do need to travel. I expect that this will more likely be the norm than not and hope/expect that more among us who can afford to pay extra for the additional comfort, do so. The airline industry will need to keep that segment to get ahead of this seismic shift in travel patterns that 2020 has brought upon all of us. I was hoping to just sleep through it. I normally sleep well/easily on flights (at times, "too well"!) but could not do so on this leg. The seats in first class are just not meant for sleeping and are thus limited in their positioning ... brief napping is the best you can do - carry your entertainment/work or plan on meditating while fully awake. The base is for all intent and purposes, immovable (maybe a couple of inches back and forth at best). There is no concept of a foot rest in the design. The back locks into one of two positions - a vertical one for take-off/landing and a second one tilted about 15 degrees or so. That makes it impossible to stretch the body out while fully supported - so hard to go into relaxed/deep sleep for those who wish to do so. The front passenger seat of a common car offers more for a five hour road trip - something to ponder on, eh? Upgrade the seats ...the extra investment will pay for itself quickly in this age of reduced travel as you'll attract more of those who are lucky to be able to pay a little more to fly in comfort for the few times that they need to. Additionally, sleeping passengers are often the easiest/cheapest to service!"
Cons: "First class seat broken wouldn’t recline. No food in first class? Cracker box not food."
Pros: "on time arrival. pleasant crew."
Cons: "late departure. tight seat in coach."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours. The gate attendants were so kind but the communicate from operations was terrible. It’s sucked that those ladies had to fiend questions as there was no real Information. I wanted my WiFi comped."
Pros: "Good professional experience."
Cons: "When will boarding and de-planing efficiencies next used?"
Pros: "Everything was superb! The airline I prefer did a great job! The seats, the food selections, the staff - everything!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect!"
Pros: "Crew was good,boarding was fine and unboarding as well."
Cons: "A 6hr flight and you get one cup of soda or coffee,but water they come with like 3 time. Also you get one pack of cookies with 2 ginger snaps inside. No tv unless $10 or download their app thing.Even if night flight i would like more rounds with drink an more than snaps for $ of ticket!!!"
Pros: "Vouchers and free food after 9 hour delay"
Cons: "Not have us board and deplane and waiting for 9 hours."
Pros: "The crew was very happy and welcoming."
Cons: "We were late and I missed my flight. I was told Flt 452 from LAX to JFK is notoriously late. Also, there could have been more updates about our delayed arrival."
Pros: "I love the legroom. Alaska seems to have more of it and I will fly when I can on Alaska just for that! Crew was very nice too."
Cons: "Nothing to eat! By the time I ordered at the back of the plane there wasn’t any food left except one cheese plate. Very disappointed as I wanted the Asian salad and there were none. Need more selections and more food onboard. Some free peanuts would be nice."
Pros: "completely not flight was 11:45 they fly on 12:15 after stopping Multiple times on ramp also even flight land at 8:18 Supposed to be at 7:55 because of uber driver charge me waiting fee and in flight i ask water so she said i’ll give you in air and in air she didn’t came for 1:30 for offer water"
Cons: "crew should be better and flight should be on time"
Cons: "Premium charges to change seat First checked is $30"
Cons: "A little more food on the 4+ hour flight. Otherwise a great experience!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun. Seats were roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom stall. Told crew who tried to correct it but it was broken. Boo..."
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight due to turbulence. Hard seats. Majority of passengers checked in baggage were taken off in Honolulu before take off and did not make it to Anchorage."
Pros: "Fantastic. First flight on Alaska’s airline. We’ll fly again!"
Pros: "Quick boarding / friendly boarding staff Smooth flight"
Cons: "The red-eye flight there were no pillows or blankets available for economy class! This used to be a basic! There was few food options for sale on the menu even fewer snack options."
Pros: "Very faster arrived."
Cons: "No meals."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 10pm. We all boarded only to be told that some ground crew vehicle ran into the cargo door and scratched it so badly it had to be reported. The report must be filled out and sent to Seattle for review. We were told by the air crew this would take a few more minutes. It took over almost an hour and a half. Screaming babies and a FULL plane. We finally changed planes to the other end of the Terminal. I got no sleep and missed a very special Labor Day Holiday with my daughter because I am sleeping now. I dont understand how your own ground crew can damage your plane and it take so long for you to decide to change planes AFTER BOARDING A FULL PLANE!?!?"
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Cons: "There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."
Pros: "Quiet, relaxation, good service."
Cons: "Tight seat, hard to get out of."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "We had a quiet comfortable overnight flight. I liked people able to stay in my seat and order waters on the screen while my children spelt."
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined a bit more"
Pros: "I'm used to being spoiled by Hawaiian Airlines. By comparison to Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian is a lot warmer with customer service, they are more efficient, they give you a free meal for trans-pacific flights, and they give you a screen or full entertainment system (depending on what kind of airplane you get). Alaska Airlines, by contrast, is a lot more bare-bones. I hardly had any contact with the flight attendants (when I did, they were nice enough I suppose), there was no food on the flight unless you paid a good penny for it, the seats were pretty average, and there was nothing really to watch (not even a common screen for movies, and this was a trans-pacific flight). You had to order their entertainment iPads. So I pretty much slept. That said, both Alaska and Hawaiian have good prices. Alaska had better options for departure and arrival times."
Cons: "The bare bones aspect (see other side)."
Cons: "They pack you in like sardines and we as customers are supposed to like this. The seating sucks, the leg room sucks. My Hawaiian flight was great, great customer service, seating and leg room was great. If I could have and should have flown Hawaiian instead of Alaska. I like Alaska Airlines but truely the plane I was on was old, crowded and hated the flight. Alaska could step up to the plate and provide a better experience. If I gauged my experience on Alaska through today's flight I would never fly them again. Really Alaska I know you can do better."
Cons: "My flight was canceled by the airline so I never flew with Alaska Airlines. Missed my nieces wedding due to the flight being canceled."
Pros: "Everyone was kind, friendly and having a good time."
Cons: "The fruit and cheese plate, often good, was not great this time."
Pros: "I slept the entire flight. It was great."
Pros: "We upgraded to first class and it was amazing! The staff was very friendly and it was a perfect end to our honeymoon!"
Pros: "the tablets that could be purchased were a nice touch."
Cons: "AC WAS NOT BLOWJNG COLD AIR!!!! Miserable!"
Cons: "Seat leg room is for elves."
Pros: "Loved the fact they had shows that you could watch through your phone just connect with their internet, they were very nice and fast at giving drinks."
Cons: "Plane was not the most comfortable, and super cold (could also be the fact I forgot my jacket and was wearing tank top) you have to download app to watch movies before actually watching them on plane. There's no way you can download app in airplane."
Pros: "The first-class flight attendants would sometimes help the main cabin passengers and were generally in a better attitude and much more helpful."
Cons: "The plane was changed and my "Premium" seat was downgraded. The seats were uncomfortable and much too cramped. I paid $89 extra for premium seating, and when cancelled upon, was only offered a $25 credit for future travel plans. Since I cannot count on Alaska, I'm not sure how soon my "future," travel plans will be ..."
Pros: "-The tablet entertainment option was great since there was no inseat entertainment. The cost of of the tablet was cheap and allowed you access to everything, which is different from other airline a-la-carte purchasing of different entertainment. -Crew was great, food/beverage service was also great."
Cons: "-At HNL there was poor signage to get from the rental car return to the airline. Once we got into the terminal it really wasn't clear if we should go left or right, We wound up asking an American employee where Alaska was. -After the checked bag agriculture inspection it was not clear that you go to the kiosks there right after the inspection. I think it partially wasn't clear because there were multiple large groups traveling with tons of luggage and you go straight to the kiosks and then back track to hand over your checked bag. The line for checking the bag vs needing help wasn't clear either. Luckily there were Alaska employee's there helping at the kiosks and with the bag checking so it did go smooth but could definitely be better."
Pros: "I like the options they provide for food and love the charging stations on the seats."
Cons: "I found the aisle seats to be more uncomfortable than the inner seats. There was less room under the seat for baggage and feet and I got my elbow banged pretty bad by a cart (I had fallen asleep). I also think it is lame to be charged for basically everything but a drink and a cracker on a 5+ hour flight. We get nickle and dimed for everything. $10 for each food item, $10 for a movie screen (what happened to the good old days with free in flight movies?). We have to pay to check luggage ($25 bucks). We normally avoid flying if humanly possible because it is in general too much stress and too expensive but we prefer Southwest airlines if they will go to our destination. Bags are included with their tickets!"
Cons: "I DID NOT LIKE THAT MY SUITCASE WENT TO OAKLAND INSTEAD OF JFK!!!"
Pros: "The flights attendants were really nice."
Cons: "Not being able to lean the seats back in the emergency exit row."
Pros: "The flight was OK except that they ran out of food to sell and apparently you could order ahead of time but at least for us in the back of the plane was nothing left."
Pros: "Personal entertainment iPads are nice options to rent for the flight duration."
Cons: "I had a window seat - 10A, except there was no window, just s blank wall space. Needless to say, 5 hr flight felt very long."
Pros: "They were able to switch me to a aisle seat last minute. Clean plane."
Cons: "Female flight attendant ( don't know her name but she was wearing little eyeglasses,) was not very nice. I asked her what kind of juice she had and she grabbed the card from the seat in front of me and without saying a word stuck it in my face. Very impatient. she seem to be in a hurry so I was irritated and asked her to just give me a water. When I asked for water, she replied by saying "After all of that, that's all you want? ". Very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "I always love the food in first class on Alaska. Great crew."
Cons: "Rattle and vibration noise on lift off in plane. Don't know where it came from but as much as I fly, I've never heard it before."
Pros: "I slept most the time and occasionally woke up to eat (you gonna pay FYI) and drinks (complimentary) not liquor Overall it was a pleasant flight...I ate...I went to sleep no issues but I was late to my plans in San Diego due to the delays..."
Cons: "Delayed on boarding and than delayed on landing...if you have an Apple iPad or phone you would've to download an app on the ground so before take off in order to watch movies while flying so basically I wasn't able to view any of the entertainment inflight because I didn't have the gogo app on my phone/ipad and my flight was at least 5 to 6 hr HI to San Diego...plus internet was unavailable throughout entire flight...woke up and first thing I saw was a flight attendant picking of her food from her teeth using her fingers not just for a few seconds but minutes and it didn't even phase her loll smh"
Cons: "It's too packed in the main cabin lose a vertical row so there is more space. It's just overwhelming"
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Leg room, food"
Cons: "The seats for such a long flight were so close together and uncomfortable. The flight attendant skipped us twice with beverage services"
Pros: "Friendly , clean service"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "When I got there"
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 2 hours and they had to wait for another plane. I’m sure the original plane could have made it even if it wasn’t running great. It was only a 40 minute flight. And planes have 2 motors."
Pros: "The crew! And the meals provided."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Wasn’t able to get comfortable in coach seat to sleep"
Cons: "Every movie or tv show cost 8 dollars. Other airlines have at least a few free choices. i was very disappointed"
Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "Limited outlets for a 9 hr flight. Have to pay for a movie"
Pros: "The fact they changed the seating for me and my girlfriend (originally booked together for a side two seats in a 2-4-2 setup, then our reservation was removed)."
Cons: "They removed our reservation for window seats together. No in flight entertainment because everything was pay to view."
Pros: "I loved the crew! They were so happy and upbeat. They were attentive and very honest. I appreciate that because sometimes I feel like crew won't say what's really going on to a passenger for what ever reason. It's just a psychology I guess. Not the case here. The woman who waited on me was sympathetic to my diet and had empathy for me. She also gave me a little extra of something they had to ration when first doing diner service. I thought that was sweet. Happy about the blanket provided and pillow"
Cons: "Why on earth would you only offer one choice for a meal??? I don't eat chicken. I feel bad for all the vegetarians and vegans on that flight. Hawaii is a healthy place and should be represented in the meal on the plane. The food was bland and for someone to who doesn't eat a lot of meat it was very disappointing. Furthermore, the fact that there was NO movie on the way there and the in flight entertainment wouldn't work on my computer was really disappointing. Then on the way back I had to pay to watch!? I'm fuming about this. I HATE that airlines are doing this. It is greedy and gross."
Pros: "Overall one of the best fights I’ve been on in a while."
Cons: "My tray was broken which made my drink spill all over my lap, glad it was only water. My friends screen didn’t work the entire flight even after the flight attendants tried re-booting the system, no luck with fixing it."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly and patient. It was my first time flying Hawaiian and I would definitely fly again. Our flight was delayed at the start, but the crew handled the stress seamlessly! Great guest service."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Card only payment for snacks was rough because I lost my credit card at the airport before boarding flight. On a 10+ hour flight it was really difficult."
Pros: "Staff was patient with those not paying attn. Coffee was actually hot."
Cons: "Food was awful, even for being free. Check in was Disorganized, chaotic, and difficult to follow as NO signs. No FREE entertainment for 9 hour flight."
Pros: "The staff is friendly and well presented. The aircraft is clean and you get plenty of little freebies like snacks, pillow, and blanket. They provide complimentary meals as well. I’m sure it’s incorporated into the price of the ticket but for coach, the airline does not nickel and dime you. The pricing is on par with all the other airlines but the service and amenities without adding on extra fees make it my airline of choice for flying to Hawaii. You have the option to purchase additional things like snacks and alcohol but you do not have to in order to make it through the flight. Hawaiian Airlines provides everything to make the experience enjoyable. My wife and I have flown on Hawaiian Airlines many times and have never had a bad experience. I would consider them the gold standard in relation to the price of a coach ticket."
Cons: "It’s a really long flight from the East Coast of the United States to Hawaii. It’s a shame to live so far from one of your favorite places on earth."
Pros: "This crew on the Ny bound Hawaiian airline flight 50, were true ambassadors of "Aloha spirit"...They were friendly and anticipated my needs."
Cons: "Window seat.. bcuz of the curved design, my comfort level was "just bearable". Windows are low and had to almost sit on the floor to look out of it. I'm about average height 5'8" and 225#. FOOD- Flavor was ok but I only had 1-2"×1" of chicken and 1 floweret of broccoli. Prisoners eat more than that.."
Pros: "Everything except the entertainment"
Cons: "All movie's ar $8.....way to high and there are no packages to watch two or three or four for one price. Same for the radio."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "It's a 10-11 hours flight but I have to purchase the movies to watch. When I was checking in, I paid extra to upgrade my seat but when boarding, I was told I lost my seat! I was assigned to sit at the last row which was very uncomfortable. Food was not great either."
Pros: "smooth arrival and department however the flight was delayed 30 minutes. Good selection of movies but need to pay for 11 hours flight. I was able to sleep most of the time as I was on overnight flight."
Cons: "Food - no option available - very basic and not tasty at all."
Pros: "Crew very friendly. Plane clean."
Cons: "The charging plugs did not work. The entertainment choices were not good and were limited. There was a charge for each selection, not even a one fee for access throughout the flight. This is terrible for a 10hr flight."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air has a direct flight from Honolulu which makes the 5000 trip bearable. The Hawaiian crew is really good-natured and warm, always w/a smile, even in the middle of the night. In these days of budget cuts, Hawaiian serves you too much food and even offers a complementary glass of wine. The only unfortunate thing is that you have to pay for all types of on board entertainment. All in all it’s a really great flight in economy."
Pros: "Very friendly service, still serves food, made sure passengers were comfortable at all times."
Cons: "Could've had electrical port for laptop use."
Cons: "I am a HA MasterCard holder & whenever I get a boarding pass online, they charge me $25 for my 1 piece of luggage. Their policy is a complimentary 1 bag but it doesn’t follow through! This is deceitful!!!!"
Pros: "Very nice staff, very decent food (a little bit small, but tasty), good entertainment options, comfortable and quiet cabin"
Cons: "Was reassigned aisle seats with no explanation for both legs of my journey despite paying for window seats."
Cons: "Paid $600 for the better seats and they refused to give a full can of soda. Didn't get much of a window seat, the window was closer to the person in front of us. There was some guy on the plane in the same section as me and my husband and they gave him full cans so I guess it's who you know. I couldn't even eat the food, it made me nauseous. They arrived 30 minutes late and we almost missed our next flight. They didnt even ask for those with connecting flights to be let off first. Checked luggage handle was torn off by staff. Not worth the extra cost or going out of my way to book with Hawaiian. I won't go with them again."
Pros: "Hawaiian Chocolate (Only 1 piece though)"
Cons: "Entire food service is just a joke. I think they should tell the passengers straightforwardly that there is going to be no food served on this flight."
Pros: "Nothing- they really do suck."
Cons: "There crew sucks"
Pros: "Great staff, loved the free wine and the gift from shutterfly. The blankets are nice, light and large."
Cons: "Very loud inside the plane. No fan overhead. All entertainment was only for purchase. Food was not very good but the fruit in the morning was very fresh. It was also a very bumpy flight and I would have appreciated if I received more updates from the captain, however, a lot of people were sleeping so that would have been intrusive. I suggest a way for the captain to write a message to passengers updating them on the flight that they can access on the TV so there aren't as many announcements on overhead flights"
Cons: "Food choices and it was tasteless. Have to pay a lot for mediocre old entertainment for a 10hr flight."
Pros: "Very good landing"
Pros: "Decent seat with good leg room, friendly crew"
Cons: "Absolutely terrible food...no complimentary entertainment $8 to watch single film or tv show"
Cons: "There were tv's in every seatback, but there was literally not a single movie or show that could be watched for free. Fine to charge for some/premium content, but crazy to have nice tv monitors with absolutely none being used for entire legs of very long flights."
Cons: "$0 charge for cked bag from JFK to HNL, but I was charged $25/- for the same bag - 38.5kbs from HNL to JFK"
Pros: "Friendly. On time. Small meals on long flight."
Cons: "You shouldn't have to pay to watch a movie"
Pros: "options for vegetarians"
Cons: "the food, there was no vegetarian option. The first plane was very small and uncomfortable but the return was good."
Pros: "Friendly staff and free meals from NYC to Hawaii even though it isn't international was a great plus. United does not provide meals. We also got a free bag of popcorn and free movies coming home because it was the 5th anniversary of the airline or something. We were on time both ways, which is most important."
Cons: "The movies available were a good selection, but you had to pay $8, which is unheard of these days."
Pros: "I loved the service of Katie. She was awesome and funny and extremely nice. My experience was terrific because of her hard work as well. I am a United States Marine and I will definitely be recommending this airline. Thank you !"
Pros: "The crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was pretty good. Hit some turbulence and it was handled smoothly as possible."
Cons: "Touchscreen display barely responded to touch, would randomly turn on while I was trying to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was very warm"
Cons: "Whose idea was a touchscreen entertainment screen on the back of my headrest?? I could feel every click from the person behind me. $8 to screen 1 movie? Good lord. Also it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Poor customer service to account for severe delay and cancellations. No partner airline service. No back up flight crew. Worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "I got an entire row to myself"
Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "They broke my luggage at the counter in front of my eyes and did not even ask me if I wanted to put a claim. Luggage fees are not announced anywhere and THERE IS a luggage fee. When complaining that it was not said anywhere, the agent put my friend on stand by list and did not say anything... and finally, at the boarding gate, seats where available, no wait list! I booked a direct flight but because a restroom issue, flight stopped and 2-hour delay was added. any movie is the price a movie theater ticket $8! For an 11-hour flight, it could be free or at least few old movies should be available in the complimentary package."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive. The extra comfort seats were well worth it for the long flight."
Cons: "There was enough free entertainment to choose from, but it could be newer. Don't forget your earbuds or earphones."
Pros: "Very polite staff"
Cons: "Baggage fees and you need to pay for entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was very nice. The seats/blanket/pillows were comfortable."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work for the entire flight and they were not able to fix it or place me in a different seat. This was not good."
Cons: "Food was not good. Fruit was good."
Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times"
"The comfort was excellent"
"Delta does a great job in general. However, the “Comfort+“ seats weren’t worth the money. I sat in both seats, and I compared the width of the seats and the distance from the seat edge to the back of the seat in front of it. There was a difference of about 2” in the seat width and 1” in the leg room. Very disappointing."
"Some passengers weren’t wearing masks or were wearing them below their noses, and I think there could have been general announcements reminding them about that."
"Same comment as before. Should not be part of skyteam. Alitlia is way below standard for that group of stellar airlines. Staff is unfriendly, delivers poor service and do not make you feel welcome on board. Food is good. Only water not other drinks available. No garbage college during flight or before landing. Entertaining is so so and the bathrooms are dirty."
"The staff was extremely nice and professional.They did excellent job!"
"As always, Delta never fails to deliver! Let’s keep climbing!"
"This was the Delta Shuttle flight (operated by Republic Airways (therefore not a mainline flight)). The crew was exceptional in expediting boarding, accommodating customers, and politely dealing with “difficult” passengers (don’t be that passenger - it’s a 40 minute flight). Great flight overall."
"I like that I got to my destination safely."
"I loved the hospitality of the crew, they were a great crew. What I didn’t like was how the airport I was going to be in for a layover closed down due to it raining in the area. I missed my connecting flight, and got put on a flight that departed 8 hours from the time I arrived to the airport. I also have no news on where my luggage is."
"Everyone is doing their best, but travel sucks! Mask wearing is necessary but odious. The worst thing is the toilets on 767s are so cramped that you cannot see where the trash is without crouching down or being a pigmy, so people leave their towels by the sink!"
"The entertainment unit not work. It kept freezing up, the map kept moving around to other parts of the globe, so,e functions didn't operate at all. Finally less than halfway through the flight the unit froze up all together and was completely unusable. Also, the seat wasn't able to recline as the button on the seat was completely missing!"
"The flight was on time. Delta was very communicative as far as checking in, luggage, boarding ect. I was traveling with an infant, it would’ve been nice if they helped us out with an aisle seat."
Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"
Cons: "The flight could have been on time"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the plane departed early."
Cons: "I had an exit row seat (21G). The seat felt like a church pew and the right armrest was lower than normal since it was mounted on the exit door. This was by far the most uncomfortable flight I've had. My back started to hurt even before the plane took off."
Cons: "It was the last row, could not sleep on it"
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and cool!"
Cons: "Movies were outdated flying to Amsterdam, coming back was great"
Cons: "Reservation said hot food, no food was offered except for crackers and nuts, flight had no real options for drink except if you are a coffee drinker or coke drinker"
Pros: "Crew was nasty. They acted like prison guards not like they supposed to act to customers."
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "So far nothing."
Cons: "All was excellent"
Cons: "The cookies and snacks are terrible. A single sandwich would have been better and not cost that much more t For the airline"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Cons: "nothing all excellent"
Pros: "Delta service and comfort is always excellent."
Cons: "All is great just keep it up"
Pros: "COVID safety measures"
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment via Gogo app / Delta Studio."
Pros: "Better food"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, empty middle seats. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Snacks lacked variety and nutritional value."
Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Pros: "Entertainment was great , also being able to watch live tv. Cabin crew were good"
Cons: "Be on time , delayed for an hour"
Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off. The crew tried to make it up but it was 90 minutes late in the end - I almost missed a connection. Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew could have proactively provided more water. I was really thirsty mid-flight and had to stand up and ask for water myself."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
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: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
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"
"The check in process was kind of slow considering that I had already checked in and just needed to drop off my bag. Everything else was great! I love flying with the Japanese. Their customer service is always astounding."
"Not sure why we left 50 min late after together boarded the plane ….. we taxied around for 35 min ans SFO isn’t that big"
Pros: "Everything happened as planed"
Cons: "Covid testing and requirements was stressful"
Cons: "For such a long trip, a better aircraft would have been better,"
Pros: "One of the crew couldn’t find extra pillows or blankets for my kids so they grabbed some from first class. I was very happy that they made the extra effort and looked passed the social economics of air plane seating class."
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty"
Cons: "More free food for long flight, free wireless, live tv"
Pros: "United Airlines kept changing our flights and seating assignments even though we paid for 2 round trip tickets 4 months in advance. The ticket agents at the gate were very helpful in making sure my companion and I could get seats together."
Cons: "Our luggage got left behind in Chicago. The luggage finally arrived at our destination 5 hours after we did."
Pros: "Crew kept us informed about delay"
Cons: "Deplaning slow"
Pros: "Crew was very receptive to all of my needs. Took care of my Leis on the way too!"
Cons: "Nothing. This was an awesome flight"
Pros: "I paid for an Economy Plus seat and was three rows back from the galley and you would have thought the rows around me were prisoners. We were completely ignored by the flight crew. I had to actually go up and ask my own coffee and water. I saw one flight attendant yell at the person seating next to me, because she got up to go to the bathroom, after the "fasten seat belt" sign was off but the flight attendant was not aware of it. Basically everyone was rude."
Cons: "8hr flight with a glass of water, no entertainment, bad streaming, the toilet was DIRTY... what else a kind of a modern torture! Tired of being treated like animal."
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Cons: "1) a 5-hour flight to Honolulu was delayed for 6 hours due to mechanical problems, twice! First plane had issues and we had to change to another plane, found issues again before being taxied. Poor maintenance United! Are your planes even safe? 2) United first class is terrible! It isn’t even near first class standard with very tight seats and rude flight attendants. Absolutely zero service! No more United!"
Pros: "That I didn't get dragged off the plane and I landed alive."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "First leg of my journey was delayed, so it was crazy connecting to my second United flight to Vegas. Poor service overnight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful, boarding was quick and simple"
Cons: "A family of 5 kept switching seats with each other and I ended up stuck between the father and a women, he was not considerate of my space I had to ask several times for him to move over."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!"
Cons: "The flight ran out of eggs so my breakfast was only fruit and a yogurt but honestly with that being the worst thing that happened I will take it."
Cons: "Seats very close"
Pros: "Love the little blanket. I think people who take the red-eye realize It will just be dozing, that no real sleep is possible."
Cons: "Like I said earlier, coffee in any form would have been greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Gate agent was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The loading process is horrible as usual and by the time I got on board there were no overhead bins available for my bag. I had to go back four rows and really shove my bag into a bin--and my bag isn't ovesized. After leaving the gate, we sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes because there was some kind of incident in the back of the plane. Some of the crew headed to the back of the plane wearing latex gloves and later a passenger went into a lavatory to change his pants. I think someone threw up on the poor guy. What I didn't like was no one telling us why we weren't taking off, and no apology when we did! Later in the flight, I was asleep when the crew went up the aisle with a food cart and pinched my foot!"
Pros: "No delays, nice personnel and food pas OK but a little pricy."
Cons: "Internet costing 8$ for an hour is way overpriced, no leg room, seats not really comfy, no meals provided during an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Change of seat w/o any notification."
Pros: "I enjoyed the amount of space I had. (I was in an exit row.)"
Cons: "The crew and staff of united in general seemed to really be unhappy with their jobs. The flight crew seemed very unpleasant."
Pros: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, stuck for an extra day in Honolulu. United put me in a hotel for the night, but I have to check out at 11am and the new flight doesn't leave until 8:40pm. So now I'm just supposed to sit around the airport for 9 hours? Plus last night they told me all the other flights were full. But my girlfriend called this morning and also checked online and there was an earlier flight at 7am, that would have still got me to Denver tonight. and there WAS availability on it, but since I got different information from different people, time ran out and I couldn't get on that one. So I lose an entire day of my trip, and have to cancel the appointments I had scheduled in Denver for today. Plus the expense of having to find food in Honolulu for a day. So...yay united. Once again, you're awesome."
Pros: "Everything went well from check in, to boarding, to the flight. Flight attendants were all great and attentive. Flight left a few mins early and arrived 20 mins ahead of schedule. Coffee was FANTASTIC."
Cons: "In flight wifi was inoperative. I could not access any in flight entertainment throughout the flight."
Cons: "The most rude staff I've ever encountered, at least at the HNL airport. Movies didn't work"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "In flight features such as wifi and private viewing wasnt working an i specifically choose united because of this feature"
Pros: "Was delayed two over two hours in HNL. When UA decided to transfer all passengers to another plane, it was such a beautiful flight and the Pilot of the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that we went given a free meal because the plane broke down."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Same experience on ANOTHER 8 hour flight I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."
Pros: "Seeing as we were flying with ANA instead of United, everything was excellent, especially the crew. The food was amazing."
Cons: "there was absolutely no notfication that we were flying with ANA! I understand the flight was booked with united and you guys are part of the star partnership thing or whatever but it made finding out where to check in very stressful and time consuming! Stop overbooking your flights!"
Cons: "Not getting a confirmation email or check-in reminder. No working wifi or power docks on plane (marketed as having in-seat entertainment). Moved to the back of the plane with no recline and destroying my back after telling them I need at least minimal recline. Out of most food options upon being served last and given a soggy undressed chicken wrap for 12.00. Finally, the gate dock was not able to connect with the plane upon arrival yeilding a 30 minute delay at the gate. Unapologetic crew simply ready to turn onto the next flight. This is why I don't fly united."
Cons: "Not only did we sit on the plan for almost two hours before they realized that the plane didn't have enough gas we sat there for a another 30 minutes circling the dam flight line only to realize that there is to much cargo in the plane that it's to heavy to fly they didn't let anyone use the bathroom and we proceeded back to the terminal only to get on a different plane to fly out"
Pros: "First class trip all the way loved it will fly again to Oahu if it's first class again"
Cons: "Again the entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, less leg room and had to use your own tablet or phone for entertainment. Flight was late. Large plane."
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Pros: "Great entertainment options included at no additional cost. This should be standard on all flights."
Cons: "The comfort, like most non-business class cabin seats, was very uncomfortable after the first couple of hours. Also, I was pretty shocked that a meal was not included for a 9 Hr flight."
Pros: "Nothing special!"
Cons: "You have to pay for food! It should have been included w/ the fair!"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. And the wine was good."
Cons: "I paid for 2 round trip tickets and because my son was not there for the first leg, they resold the seat. So they got my money and the other person's money for the same seat. I wanted both seats and paid for both seats. It is theft and should not be allowed. The flight attendant was extremely rude and dismissive. It is a poor practice. You could have at least asked first before rebooking the seat. At least have offered compensation or something. I probably would have said yes Anyway. It's the principle of the process being wrong to the consumer which only benefits the corporation."
Pros: "Crew was great willing to accommodate and professional."
Cons: "Extra costs for luggage, fees for internet and entertainment which is wrong especially on long flights. Delta offered free entertainment. on their flight for LAX to Honolulu. SEATING WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE !"
Pros: "Once again, no problems occurred on this flight. I was just glad that I was on my way back home."
Cons: "I arrived at 4:58 AM and there was no coffee shop in the terminal 7 arrival area. I had to walk all the way to Delta airlines terminal 5 just to buy a cup of coffee. What. A. Shame."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Pros: "Finding the flight I needed"
Cons: "Found the flight on the United site but couldn't buy it because it wouldn't let me enter my birthday. Called to book over the phone right then and the price was $100 more. Went online to check and the price was 100 suddenly. Went to kayak and they still had the original price. Games like that make choose United last"
Cons: "They called for uniformed services to board priority and when I went to the front with another individual in the Military we were RUDELY told we are not allowed to board unless we are in uniform. I am in the US Coast Guard and we are NOT allowed to fly in uniform. This does not mean I am not a part of the military and I should be treated with respect. I had my ID ready to present and only had one bag. The employee was very rude and told me to go to the end of the line. I will NEVER fly United again. I was wrong to think they took care of military personnel."
