Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Friendlier crew and better service"
Pros: "Easy flight, no hassle, pleasant staff"
Pros: "Seat didn’t stay in reclined position and didn’t recline all the way. No foot rest. Ridiculous for first class. Delayed flight. Almost no food. Bizarre entertainment system. They couldn’t find my frequent flier number to add it to my trip."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Great service. Wish we flew Alaska both ways instead of United ☹️"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bathroom could always improve."
Pros: "Lots of dessert! Really nice crew, they helped me figure out why my feet were swelling."
Cons: "Sleep aids and a bed in economy class! Otherwise it was lovely"
Cons: "Smallest, tightest, poorly designed seating ever! Extremely uncomfortable seating. Alaska airlines charges extra for virtually everything. Flight was delayed multiple times (non weather). The ticket wasn't cheap but was lower-priced then competitors at that particular moment on short notice."
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing"
Cons: "Best domestic USA airline"
Cons: "LAX airport plane docking took 30 minutes and not enough information to get to International Terminal."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The chair was very uncomfortable and it was cold. A light blanket and more padding on the seats would make a difference."
Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."
Pros: "Space respectful service. United should take lessons. American and Alaska airline far superior to the crowding herding hostile staff of United."

Cons: "Small space and I am only 120 lbs."
Pros: "Crew. Punctuality. Drink Service Frequency."
Cons: "Didn’t discover until mid air that app needed to watch in flight entertainment via phone/laptop had to be downloaded before take off. Also would have appreciated staff asking the family of 10 (7 small children, 3 adults) to be more courteous of surrounding patrons"
Pros: "Great service and flight crew!"
Cons: "The turbulence was the only thing that sucked!"
Pros: "great landing"
Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."
Pros: "First time chose this airline, Fast boarding, Smooth flight, very freindly personal, excellent entertainment options, comfortable seats"
Pros: "That we took off on time and landed early"
Cons: "Seating was cramped"
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Pros: "The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system."
Cons: "The food quality could be improved with some more organic options."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "Best flight ever. Order from seat. Free movies. Nicest flight attendants. Arrived early. I wish every flight were like this!"
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies. No food was provided, you have to pay for any food or snack. You are given a cup of soda not the whole can. But I came prepared with food and drink. Overall, very good airline!"
Cons: "No food or snack are provided unless you purchase it!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and free entertainment was available. Quick and easy boarding with my 2yo and rest of family. Food for purchase was also good Flight attendants were very helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "No headphones, not even for purchase... and we were not told about this until we left the gate.AND no CC for any movie Air smelled like jet fuel for a good 10 min when we were at departure and arrival gate one bathroom was covered in feces (literally) so the other 2 were always in use. There was also no announcement made stating there would be no more drink or good service after a certain point"
Pros: "...but I upgraded to premium and it’s got more offerings than other airlines, like alcoholic drinks, but..."
Cons: "1. Flight delays. My fam flew a week ago with a 2 hour delay so this may be par for the course. 2. WiFi was out. If you’re gonna try to differentiate yourself then make sure that differentiating factor works flawlessly. 3. Seat wouldn’t recline. In Premium seating, which people choose for better comfort, make sure they can get it."
Pros: "Ordering everything thru the computer screen."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, so friendly and down to earth. Great customer service. Make flight attendant, Stan, I think, was great!"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order for the flight. Food and drink ordering didn’t work."
Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."
Pros: "Plane clean, boarding efficient, pilot cordial, flight confortable, arrived early despite delayed departure."
Cons: "Because video playback system was inoperable (not an issue for me—I am happy to read during the flight) the young crew had to perform safety announcements manually but were obviously ill-practiced and inexperienced at this, bungling their reading and even seeming not fully to understand the words. (They also botched announcing introductions of the pilot and crew, not seeming confident who was on board or as if they in fact knew their names.) This was of course unprofessional but also introduced doubt how reliable they would be in an actual emergency."
Pros: "A little confused they gave us a virgin America plane but having a movie selection at our disposal and drinks it was excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was 30 min behind, then after boarding it took a while to take off and then when landing it took a while to de plane. Probably not Alaska’s fault"
Pros: "The entertainment was fantastic."
Cons: "It was freezing cold and they didn’t have any blankets. It was about 90 degrees outside so most of the passengers weren’t dressed did the frigid temperatures inside."
Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."
"The boarding was late and when I arrived at my final destination I had to wait some more to exit the plane .. about 20 mins"
"Delayed with no updates and zero taking care of passengers"
"Late departure rude crew"
"I love the internet, but I don’t like the kids behavior, yelling and be disrespectful to others passengers"
"plane was delayed 1 hour"
"On both my flights to and from Cabo, my flights were over an hour delayed."
"They are misleading, rude and deceitful."
Cons: "Nos retrasamos"
Cons: "Seat 14A had malfunctioning audio and the internet connection made it hard to stream"
Pros: "Good crew. Nice people."
Cons: "Three hour delay waiting on gbe tarmac because of mutipple airline failures."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "Food/Snack options Ability to connect Bluetooth to television"
Cons: "God bless America 🇺🇸🙏❤"
Pros: "Amazing crew and pilot flew us around all bumps — was a very smooth flight."
Cons: "All was amazing"
Pros: "This time NOTHING"
Cons: "Plane seats weren’t cleaned well. I wiped my chair, tray, window and wipe was all grey/brown dirty. Yuck! Very disappointing jetBlue. You used to be my favorite but no more. 2.5 hour of delay to pick someone special to board the plane. Ridiculous! 2.5 hour of delay and excuse was navigation not working you have to pick paperwork however picking paperwork took 1.5 hour? You think people will believe this while you get this special person to just walk in and board the plane on the (exit) seats 4 rows had been kept empty just for him. I demand my money back. Poor poor poor service JetBlue"
Pros: "I love JetBlue service and the crew. Every time."
Pros: "Seats Social distancing"
Cons: "Nothing Was perfect"
Pros: "Very comfy seating. Polite flight crew."
Cons: "A cookie before landing I feel is a bit underwhelming. I preferred the warm bagel with cream cheese. Especially if you have to run off straight to work after landing. So maybe it sounds like a nit pick. But it would be nice to maybe have a choice of a cookie or bagel? Just a thought."
Pros: "Great crew. Z and Antonio were great!"
Cons: "The breakfast meal."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were crumbs on my seat when I got there. The plane could not have been cleaned."
Cons: "Better food."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and we were properly social distanced from each other."
Pros: "The crew and leg room are really good compared to comparable flights on United, Delta or American. Especially love the power plug behind the seats."
Cons: "Couldn't watch any movies, and most of the DirectTV movies would not play. I was in seat 24 F, and 24 E had the same issue. They told us the reset the system, but it didn't help. Still, plenty of entertainment and on an actual screen on the back of the seat. So I consider it only a dissapointment on an otherwise good airline."
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"
Pros: "My experiences flying with JetBlue have been consistently great! Delays happen & are of course out of the crew’s control, but offering free snacks while we waited & the efficient boarding process, along with the free movie & TV choices on the seat back screens, make the process great!"
Cons: "My only issues have been with LAX itself & staff there (nothing crazy, just less than stellar service & somewhat rude staff occasionally) but flying with JetBlue has been awesome."
Cons: "More complimentary food options given it’s a 6 and a half hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "Communication about the delay Snacks has no variety. All too salty."
Pros: "The Agents at the counter in the terminal gate were courteous."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because an attendant had to be swapped out, then the replacement was stuck in traffic for an hour (why not have all attendants ready on-airport?). Comically, we taxied on the runway for over an hour, which caused more delays with the plane needing to be de-iced. Figured I'd put all that behind me, but then the flight experienced one of the worst turbulences I've been in. We jerked through the skies many times, and the pilots weren't reassuring. Thankfully we landed okay, but not after being late by multiple hours. Also, JetBlue needs to invest in its planes, esp. its Couch section. I felt like a pretzel with on room to breathe."
Pros: "Safe quick flight for the long journey despite delay in boarding and departure"
Cons: "Major delays not only going but returning with JetBlue. This was my first time flying them and I’m likely to never use them again. Poor customer service as no one was willing to help with WiFi set up on the way going since I’ve never flown them. Luckily I found 1 nice flight attendant and he helped point me in the right direction in set up. Overall not impressed with service and performance of this carrier."
Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."
Pros: "Everything was perfect for me I will definitely fly with JetBlue again and recommend JetBlue to all my friends and family and more"
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"
Cons: "See above please."
Pros: "All our flights with jetblue were excellent"
Pros: "Literally the worst flight I’ve ever been on in my life."
Cons: "We were seated behind a woman who brought a sick cat into the flight. The stench of cat feces was overwhelming. When we addressed it with the staff, they were incredibly rude. I also shared that I had a very significant cat allergy. The staff continued to be incredibly rude, and eventually offered a single seat in the back, which would not accommodate the two of us. The woman next to us also expressed her extreme discomfort and was condescended and disrespected, as well. Shocking, miserable experience."
Pros: "Free WiFi was great, but wish I could sign in with my Amazon account instead of setting up TrueBlue."
Cons: "The food cart rushed by without asking if we wanted anything. Also not clear until after food purchase that free snacks would be available throughout the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "They made a potentially difficult departure from JFK in a snowstorm super easy. And they couldn't be more helpful."
Cons: "Man, the regular seats are just too small."
Pros: "The airline stewardess was patient and very attentive once I developed a headache. After a couple of non-Aspirin, I was enjoying my vast array of movie selections"
Cons: "Honestly, I can not voice any concerns or problems I had with the flight and crew. Thank you Jesus, God carried us through"
Pros: "Seating was fine, flight attendants were very nice. It was a short flight and everyone worked to be efficient about boarding once the plane was ready for boarding."
Cons: "I wish the plane had come on time--the delay was inconvenient, although I understand sometimes the reason for delay can't be helped."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "the marketplace, the extra legroom, that announcements weren't too loud and didn't come in thru headphones. the design of the plane"
Cons: "the tv kept flipping out everytime my row-mate put their elbow on the arm rest."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The shotness of the crew and all the noise slamming around the compartments being slammed contnuously and angrily"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful as usual. There was a fair amount of leg room and overall space."
Cons: "One thing that has always made JetBlue stand out has been the customer service. I get pretty motion sick on flights, especially on an empty stomach, so the snacks and meals at mealtimes have always made this my favorite airline. There was none of that this time around. It feels like JetBlue is letting itself turn into just another commercial airline - over priced flights and amenities for overrated service and a lack of care for the consumer. Not to mention we were late"
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Pros: "gate staff were accomodating, flight landed on time."
Cons: "Crew were rude and intimidating to a family with kids, including calling my wife a liar in front of them! Unconscionable. I thought JetBlue advertises unlimited snacks, but my daughter was told 'you've had enough' when she went for seconds. Our TV sets didn't work. Our baby spilled some chips and as the flight attendant passed he looked at us and said loudly 'I wonder who made this awful mess'."
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Pros: "The entertainment system crashed three times and had to be rebooted which cause you to start everything over. When I use the Wi-Fi for the Amazon prime option it was very spotty and had to reload quite a bit during the flight from JFK to LAX. They are by Miss clean the staff was good but the entertainment system and the movie choices were very old and not really very interesting."
"Great customer service. Safety and cleanliness. Fly delta."
"I liked that once up, things ran more smoothly and we still landed on time despite a 45+ minute delay leaving the gate. The boarding process was another story. With the demand for proof of a negative COVID test prior to boarding by the US, Air France had just 2 staff members checking these tests results, collecting a paper affidavit of sorts also required by the US, and checking boarding passes and passports for an entire Boeing 777 full of passengers. There were other staff around This seemed preposterous. Then, when I finally boarded, the luggage was still be loaded onto the plane at 1:50pm for a flight schedule to leave at 1:15pm."
"I wrote a review to Delta already expressing my dislike of the fact that I could not get a seat assigned upon checkin or even at the airport until maybe 1 hr before my flight. The cabo representative (not part of the flight crew based from Los Angeles) was rude and not accommodating, so my wife and I had to sit separately, which was frustrating to say the least, given I had followed the entire online check in protocol, including uploading digital copies of my negative COVID-19 test."
"It would have been nice to be served some water"
Pros: "The flight from EWR to MSP was extremely quiet. No loud engine noises."
Cons: "We were vert disappointed at the Newark Airport - the Delta Club was closed and there had been no notification prior to arriving at the airport. I certainly missed that early morning coffee."
Pros: "The cleanliness, the upbeat and sweet crew, the pilot did a great job taking of and landing, and controlling the turbulence. Communication was great."
Cons: "More leg space"
Cons: "Seat comfort and snack choice."
Pros: "La tripulación muy amable!!"
Cons: "Customer service, the app defies the laws of physics, it blows and sucks at the same time, and email says expect a reply in 3 weeks. United thanks you Delta, they just gained 2 new customers!"
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "Nos trataron con mucha seguridad de higiene y nos sentimos muy seguras de viajar con ustedes muchas gracias"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "This plane was not appropriate for social distancing, I would not have booked this flight if I knew we wouldn’t be able to keep a distance from other people."
Pros: "Everything goog"
Pros: "Crew were great, loved having spare seats....Just a very welcoming flight."
Cons: "My screen on the Nashville to LA wouldn't let me watch the movie I wanted too but everything else was great. Glad they were there to get me home to Australia when other airlines weren't!"
Cons: "More cushion in exit row seats."
Pros: "Crew were friendlier than many other airlines"
Pros: "Never went on the flight."
Cons: "Awful customer service"
Cons: "Come on, business class is better in the train than in a plane? My foot was a box of 20 small chips, sausage and a very small candy"
Pros: "Delta is doing such a good job keeping people spread out, keeping masks on, and giving wipes and hand sanitizer out. They gave snacks in individual baggies with hand sanitizer. I felt so much safer than I did on a similar flight operated by American Airlines where essentially no precautions were taken."
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."
Cons: "The Seattle gate agents never said which flight they were calling and since neighboring gates were boarding at the same time it was very confusing and rather chaotic."
Cons: "It was a 4+ hr flight, so some food would have been good. Could have given protein shakes or something."
Pros: "Seat was average"
Cons: "Zero PPE or social distancing by crew"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence"
Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
Pros: "Crew were ok. Not that comfortable."
Cons: "seat need to be more comfortable"
Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "Everything. Can it please leave on time for once"
Pros: "The crew and comfort was ok"
Cons: "The snack options coming from us to aus were only packets of crisps/chips and apples and cranberry juice."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat in 1st class. Poor quality video screen, too small, too far away, poor sound."
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "Helpful staff."
Cons: "Full plane, and I was in middle seat; plane departure was late for unstated reasons."
Pros: "Nothing. Regretted purchasing my flight with Sun Country would have much rather flown Delta. Worse than Spirit airlines."
Cons: "No COVID precautions. Definitely not 6 feet apart procedures. No cleaning nor sanitation done for seats. Delta at least provides hand sanitizer wipes. & has middle seats closed off due to COVID. Hate that they charge for even a carry on. Ridiculous. Should have flown Delta."
Cons: "Well, you could have felt that when there is an unprecedented pandemic illness and federal guidance against travel that you don't doubly penalize customers who (1) cannot travel due to the extraordinary public health crisis of COVID 19 and, (2) are devastated that he cannot celebrate his best friend's 40th birthday despite being the thing he looked forward to for months and would love to use a travel voucher in the future when this whole thing eventually blows over. Imagine what your company could gain by being good."
Cons: "Timely communication"
Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed at take off and at deplaning and we were never told why or even that we were delayed. We just sat there"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Crew seemed agitated and not very friendly."
Cons: "Cramped seating, limited overhead bin space, mediocre experience. Next time I’ll spend the extra money and fly Delta."
Pros: "It was utilitarian and got me from point a to be at a very good price."
Cons: "Smaller seats, no entertainment to speak of. No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The entertainment was useless. Just the page with a list of movies took forever to load and once started a movie, after many tires, it was buffering every 5 seconds for up to a minute each time. I tried 3 different devices (phone, tablet, laptop) none worked. My son said he had the same experience."
Pros: "On-line entertainment was ok. It would have been better if they could notify you more clearly in advance about how to download the information you need and to let you know that earphones are not provided."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Flight attendants were not particularly service oriented. For example, when I asked for a glass of water the flight attendant sighed and then got it. So, the result was fine but the manner was not friendly."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "After quick boarding we waited 30min after departure time for luggage to be loaded"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Crammed seats. Lousy snacks for food. No entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "Check in crew were robotic, lacked enthusiasm. Is management competent? Are they leading, or directing? There is a difference, and one is more effective than the other. If morale is low, if employee satisfaction is low on what is visible to the passengers; then I wonder about what passengers don't see: maintenance crews, safety, quality assurance. I heard lots of grumblings from other passengers about bag policy. Provide first class service to your employees, and they will provide first-class service to your customers."
Pros: "Desk staff member very helpful When departures was busy more staff were called immediately"
Cons: "Difficult to navigate online payment for extra baggage. Inconsistency about carry on sizes We paid for extra leg room in an exit row and we're given a very brief safety talk while 2 others asked to sit in an exit row and were given no instructions"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for my ticket, but when I went to check in the day before my flight there were fees I had to pay that I was not aware of and had no choice but to do so. They do not offer and free carryon bag. If you pay online you have to pay an extra $30 for a carryon item or $20 for a checked bag. These fees apply to your destination and your flight home as well. On top of that, you have to pay for your seat. All in all I was not happy with my experience with sun country. I am normally not someone who writes poor reviews, but this was definitely the worst airline I’ve ever used."
Pros: "I used to fly sun country every other month for work. It was affordable, reliable, great customer service. They were recently bought out by Apollo Investment Group and they have gone in serious decline since then. I will never fly this airline again. Hidden fees, poor customer service, 4 hour hold time to speak to an agent, *carry-on fees*-- just a bad airline at this point."
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Not allowing a personal item and a carry on bag for free. Seats were uncomfortable. No free entertainment (like on Delta flights). Boarded and didn't take off for another 50 minutes due to slow loading of baggage."
Pros: "I loved the fact that they provided us with food vouchers and a ticket voucher when the flight was late. Thank you! The crude is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Being given new seats even though we had to pay extra to get them in the first place. Being charged for luggage when the website wasn’t clear about this matter."
Pros: "The crew were nice and professional and efficient"
Cons: "We had to deplane and switch to another aircraft after boarding was complete the first time. We arrived almost two hours late, in the middle of the night, I was really hungry by then. Some complimentary snacks or something would have gone a long way to making it up to us. I had screaming children behind me and I know that's not entirely the airline's fault, butthe delay contributed significantly to the children's misery and thus ours, and the in-flight announcements were way too loud; they woke them up abruptly and started tantrums in several places throughout the cabin."
Pros: "Nothing. Was horrible. Rude people work at the counter. She think to high heaven."
Cons: "Hated everything about it. Sun country air is the worst airline I've ever flown on. AVOID!!! Could not handle simple requests. Over charged and was a terrible over all experience and ruined my whole vacation to be honest"
Cons: "No free video screen"
Pros: "The gal next to us was an employee of sun country and she was extremely nice! Also the front desk people were accommodating"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Plane was so dirty. We were in the way back and there was food fingerprints all over the window, seat and table."
Pros: "Friendly and responsive flight attendants, one of few direct flights so definitely a plus"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the gate and flight deck about a delay before we left MSP. While the flight crew was trying to keep announcements to a minimum in board, a little bit of information would have been reassuring."
Cons: "I don't like hearing that Suncountry is going to be an airline that charges a fee for everything like Spirit airlines. I heard that this will begin as of January 1st. Suncountry is a great airline. Why would you change that? It's disappointing."
Pros: "They tried to separate me from my son in order to accommodate a passenger using a wheel chair. I accidently found out just before boarding. My son was NOT having it!! They changed our seats, putting us together again, without a problem or negative attitude. Total professionalism in an awkward situation!"
Cons: "They kept making me check my bags when I didn't need to and then had me wait for one and a half hours to get my bags from the baggage claim! They also have the longest layovers imaginable. I had to find out what gate my flight was taking off in at the airport, they never tell you ahead of time. The staff is ok but there was a stewardess on every flight (4) that had serious attitude. I only chose them for economic reasons and wish I had just paid more for a better flight experience."
Pros: "We arrived in Manila this morning April 11 from Minneapolis and we didn't get our luggage up to this time, they said that Suncountry didn't check in our luggage to China Airlines which is our connecting flight to Taipei. This is unacceptable to me, all our clothes and gifts are there, now we still don't know when will our luggage arrive."
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "We were late departing and arriving, which created a problem for a meeting I had to attend. On top of already being late the exiting of the aircraft was poor. No announcement was made for wheel chair people to wait until the end, and naturally held up the exiting of the aircraft. This was my first experience on Sun Country and the flight attendants allowed people to use the bathroom in the front of the aircraft, but at hour 3.00 when i walked up to use it - i was then told to go to the back. After I watched many people for HOURS freely use it. Not just when the cart was in the aisle either. Just not consistent in their directions and follow through making it confusing for passengers. There was no wifi, so I couldn't work and there was no entertainment on board. I won't be flying Sun country again."
Cons: "getting onto bus, riding around tax I ways and run ways to het to terminal without escalator , old people had to climb stairs, added an hour to flight time."
Pros: "Our flight on suncountry was great, the only problem was that the seats on suncountry are so close together, no legroom at all."
Cons: "When checking in our luggage the woman asked several times how many bags and we responded several times 2.my self and my wife. My wife even held up her hand indicating she was checking her bag. The woman charged me the initial bag fee of 25.00 then charged me again for an additional bag at 35.00. That was wrong since there was 3of us flying."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and pleasant.I did a lay over that broke up my six hour flight.the seats were a little uncomfortable.."
Cons: "The fact that most passengers brought on their small suitcase which took up the time in seating"
Pros: "It was a smooth check in and the flight times were accurate.This flight had less passengers so we had more room in between passengers."
Pros: "It was fast check in and we were on our way to Los Angeles crew and staff helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Not enough personal space toooooo crowded and stuffy."
Pros: "Simple boarding, decent seats. No frills but much more value and comfort than other regional/LCCs e.g. Spirit, Frontier, etc."
Cons: "No free or basic entertainment."
Cons: "The check-in experience is rough for small airlines like this at LAX."
Pros: "Sitting in an exit row allowed for lots of leg room and boarding early with the first class passengers. The price of the flight was very reasonable."
Cons: "Not being able to recline my seat, and no fancy in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Awesome prices. T,he gate crew was informative and helpful with the flight status and early check in procedures. Good food choices and variety, and prices weren't terribly out of line"
Cons: "Flight crew didn't give many updates for sights or geography, if at all. Seats are probably the smallest i've seen, the the middle seats don't recline at all which is uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, gave early boarding to the military, 737-800's,"
Cons: "FA's were a little matter of factly."
Pros: "We were delayed leaving by an hour and got no updates until 30 minutes in, at which point we were advised "paperwork was waiting to be completed". Then when we finally arrived there was no gate for us to unboard from for at least another 20 minutes."
Cons: "No communication of delay as well as why not use one of the 5 empty gates available in a situation like that?! My boyfriend had to waste gas and circle the airport nonstop"
Pros: "I like the staff, the clean planes, the on time service"
Cons: "I fly Sun country all the time (every month) and I do not have any negative experiences."
Pros: "Please read thoroughly"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the ground crew were very helpful and friendly. When I landed at LAX there was no wheelchair. I had to wait for at least 30 minutes for a wheelchair. I missed my shuttle and after arriving at 4:45, the shuttle did not come until after 6:30."
Cons: "The grounds people at LAX were not as nice and friendly as the flight crew and the ground crew in MN. Certainly not as helpful. After waiting for my wheelchair which had been pre arranged, I missed my shuttle and had to wait almost 2 hours for another shuttle."
Cons: "I tried checking in online multiple times, but it kept saying there was an error. I would then call the customer service line and sit on the phone for a very long time until finally hanging up because no one answered. I was thinking about extending my trip but I couldn't because I couldn't ket ahold of anyone."
Pros: "Booked this flight months before I took it on KAYAK. Got to the airport and saw the sign that said "ask about our affordable upgrades". I asked and it was totally affordable. I bumped myself up to 1st class on both flights for $280 total and it was absolutely amazing. The flight staff was so attentive, the food was great and they were not shy about making sure I was getting enough to drink. Overall, this was a great airline that seemed to actually care about the people on the plane as opposed to other 1st class experiences I have had where people try to get the most out of you for the least amount of effort. Sky Country took the time to make me feel like I was worth it and that made all the difference. Would 100% recommend."
Pros: "I had never heard of Sun Country before, and thought I would be in for an uncomfortable Spirit Airlines type of experience. I was pleasantly surprised that the seats were comfortable, there was room for my carry-ons, and everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "I just acquired a Known Traveler Number for TSA Pre-Check. When I checked in at the airport, the self-service screen showed my KTN, but printed the boarding pass without saying PreCheck on it. I didn't notice until I was at security and was no longer able to get it corrected. I was told by the TSA person (not a Sun Country employee) that it was "random," but surely your system can factor KTNs into boarding passes automatically, especially since I (and other passengers) paid for the DHS enrollment. I was also hoping for electrical outlets in the seat so I could use my laptop."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival Aircraft was relatively clean."
Cons: "The event I flew to attend got changed, so I had to change the dates of my 'Going To' and 'Coming Home' flights. It was not my fault, but I got horribly overcharged to change my flights. I am not working right now nor do I get Unemployment; I booked the flights months ago while I was still working. In that situation, the airline could help a bit more financially. Airline crew going out was courteous and helpful, but there was one attendant on the flight back who was frankly rude to me and bullied me. I do wish airline food was a bit more reasonably priced, and cash payment was accepted."
Cons: "incredibly crowded seats"
Cons: "Terrible process for check-in. Unable to check in online for basic economy. If issue is with a bag then have customer take picture of carryon"
Cons: "Please was 9 hrs late ! Staff gave us a drink inthe first 2 hours and was unpleaseant and rude we embark 3 times disembark twice Fisrt my seat was broken and I was told verbatum :" I am not a mechanic can't help you by hostess" second the audio system did not work and the attitude of the staff was playing on trowing the monkey to the gate hostess and her answe was the attendant decide Finally , I got a recining seat with audio and a lot of staff attitude ! AND I am a silver menber not for long"
Cons: "Love it"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "The plane was excessively hot before takeoff due to a inoperative power unit and the flight crew did nothing to cool it off despite delays"
Cons: "Better communication and air conditioning on the plane as we waited for hours to take off"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t well maintained. Limited food and entertainment."
Cons: "There was very poor communication regarding our ongoing delay that lasted 7 hours. Some of the crew were very rude towards customers."
Cons: "Not having to change airlines. If the 1st flight hadn't come in 40 minutes early, I might have missed my connection."
Pros: "The crew between Newark and Los Angeles were phenomenal,"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow"
Pros: "Space is tight but not expensive so it’s to be expected."
Cons: "Cheaper Wifi! I couldn’t even message without paying full price for wifi"
Pros: "Economy plus seating was nice"
Cons: "One hour delay due to electrical problem"
Pros: "Best flight attendants ever."
Cons: "We took off late and then proceeded to wait on the plane for an hour when we landed because the plane in our scheduled gate wouldn't leave."
Pros: "Boarding was easy (Zone 3) and there were no issues with overhead bin storage."
Cons: "Could not use the seatback entertainment because the audio jack was jammed so that the earphones could not receive an audio signal."
Cons: "Food was below avarage, “microwave food”. Some of young female crew members were rude"
Cons: "Curb side crew"
Pros: "There is not much to like about an economy or economy plus ride for more then 2 hours."
Cons: "The free internet was sluggish making my movie watching on my computer not as pleasant an experience as it should be. It was either constantly buffering or intermittent. Boooooooo."
Pros: "Nothing, will avoid this airline in the future"
Cons: "Cramped seats, paying for 1 bag when others didnt at gate, ran out of peanuts / pretzels, undewhelming crew. Overall wasre of money, will avoid in the future."
Cons: "United has started charging for taking on a regular size carryon which I do not appreciate. Additionally, I cannot check in online, only at the gate. I will look to patronize other carriers."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the Pilot gave us periodic updates which was also nice. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "There is NO ROOM. The seats are just too close together making them extremely uncomfortable. I was also disappointed that there was no DirecTV. The choices with the in-flight entertainment was very minimal and outdated. And the Wi-Fi was ridiculously expensive."
Pros: "Plane was delayed 1 1/2 hrs,, my seat had no entertainment and there was a barrier under the area for storing our personal carry-on under the seat. I had to shove my small backpack into the that area. It was not east I would have appreciated a better"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 1/2 hrs,, my seat had no entertainment and there was a barrier under the area for storing our personal carry-on under the seat. I had to shove my small backpack into the that area. It was not east I would have appreciated a better seat for my handicapped husband"
Pros: "BEST AS ONE COULD EXPECT FLYING COACH."
Pros: "people were very nice and trying to help even after late change of aircraft and gate due to equipment"
Cons: "wi fi on aircraft while using personal device was limited. also Wi-Fi add-on for internet explorer did not work and directions on web site were poor. I attempted to download prior to flight but was unable to locate on united.com even using the search. would be better if the web site had the downloads or a check your computer config prior to flight to avoid pc not working. united app on iPhone worked well."
Pros: "Very helpful preboarding and ticket counter staff"
Cons: "I have no butt and long legs so the seating is always uncomfortable. Always."
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "There were no music channels, audio is limited to podcast and ebooks."
Pros: "On time; crew was fine."
Cons: "The plane was HOT! It's not pleasant to be packed in like sardines in uncomfortable seats and HOT!"
Pros: "The in flight attendants"
Cons: "The lady in the front desk treated me different then other passengers, i am the only one who was asked to put her carry on in the box to check the fit, and even didn't give me the chance to fit it there, she said its not feet i need to check it in, and i was forced to check my carry on in! The othere passenger have carry on just like mine and some are even bigger then mine!!! They wasn't asked to fit there carry on to the box she just let them in the flight with their bags thats a shame to united airlines who use to be until today my favorite and most recommended flight company. As a result of having my carry on checked in, for now my ride need to be delyed that's going to cost me! Who is going to pay for it thats what im asking, besides the lady was acting rude but i dont know her name unfortunately, in my carry on i have important documents if they are going to be damaged because that lady desid to check my bag in the box and determined un truly that it wont fit (only mine) that won't be good. My number 973-910-7056 Email Nirit.email@example.com"
Cons: "Just when the plane we're about to take off, the engine caught on smoke so we had to get onto a different airplane and that delayed the trip in additional three hoursthat flight got delayed and we had to move to a different terminal onto a different plane that took an additional three hours! and i didn't even get some sort of compensation at all. that is extremely unsatisfying!."
Cons: "I didn't like that my luggage was open on the conveyor belt and my belt was missing I will prefer to never use that airline again"
Pros: "During my trip I took 4 united planes. The one from Newark to L.A was the best. They provided blankets and pillows without asking. Also the intertainment was great. They had ano excellent selection of movies. Great staff for Very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Better foodeal options"
Pros: "The price of the flight."
Cons: "That all my flights were delayed."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Kept us all up to date all the time."
Pros: "Great movie selection, easy short distance gate connection"
Cons: "Being delayed on the tarmac for over 1hrs and we arrived 35 min early!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, uncomfortable, and at every turn something went wrong."
Cons: "Missed second flight due to mechanical problems on first flight. I wish the united app would at least offer alternatives when the flight problem is entirely theirs. But no, they expect you to wait in a huge line. I gave up and took the bus which had wonderful service!"
Pros: "On time and got all our luggage"
Cons: "Took a while to offload luggage"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Pros: "Lie flat bed with a good screen. Able to put your feet up on a small ledge below the screen. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Backward seat in the middle - 4 across- very strange to fly backward AND in the middle with a business class ticket. Crew wasn't the most friendly. More like the way coach used to be treated in the 80's. You got your food but there weren't any extras."
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "The on flight movies saved my phone's battery and I was able to use it to get to my friend's place after my flight."
Cons: "We did have to wait a while to board, BUT the plane was phenomenally spotless and organized. So even though we had to wait 20 minutes to board, I loved that it was to have the plane's cabin spotless clean for us."
Pros: "On time , awesome flight crew . They we patient and very attentive , thank you guys!"
Cons: "At the check in people were so rude giving me a lot of trouble with the baby food! Also it's a lot of charge for an extra bag"
Pros: "Great entertainment system with lots of selections. Electrical outlets and USB port also great amenities but mine didn't work on the return flight."
Cons: "I am a small person and found the legroom to be inadequate. I paid $50 to upgrade the seats to economy plus to give us a bit more space but it wasn't any better. For a long, overseas flight, more space is needed. I had more legroom on my domestic flight with United. Also, the airline attendants for Air NZ were unpleasant and downright grumpy at times. It made a long, uncomfortable flight seem a whole lot longer. Attendants on my United Airlines leg was phenomenally more professional. Makes for a much happier passenger. Plane temperature was freezing on the return flight to LAX and oppressive on the flight from LAX to Auckland."
Pros: "The movie selection was great, upto date with great titles"
Cons: "Crew was surly, and acted like they were doing us a favor for being there. service was slow. Food was pricey and terrible. I had the Ceasar chicken wrap paid somethings around 9 dollars and Iwas served half a small wrap. The worst part was even though we bought our seats early, together and picked our seats during purchase were changed at the gate and my wife and I were seated in opposite sides, both in center seats and had to beg our way into sitting together."
Cons: "In two weeks I've flown from EWR to San Fran and Lax and both return flights got cancelled. Also i paid for a direct and got moved to a one stop. Not cool"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed coming in from Oslo, so boarding was pushed back due to customs clearance of the plane. TVs weren't working properly and needed to reboot before take off. Then while viewing movies, there was constant skipping throughout the flight. Then after landing, we sat on the runway for over 40 minutes waiting for a gate. Leg room not great. Overhead compartments were too small for the average rolling carry on so I was forced to check my bag at the gate, and then deal with baggage claim at LAX."
Cons: "United Airlines Flight 1493 Newark to LAX delayed by more than an hour so we missed the LAX connecting flight to Palm Springs. Because it was the last flight that night, spent 2 frustrating hours getting checked baggage so we could rent a car (another hour because of a very long line and one agent at Budget Rentals) which got us into Palm Springs at 1 AM. Gate agent at Newark said "good luck" - customer service agent at LAX was hopelessly uninformed. Exhausting, stressful, $$ experience!"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movie selection."
Cons: "One of the in flight attendee was rude. Also when we needed a wheelchair to board I ask the attended at the gate to help us 20 min before boarding. No one help us luckily I was able to find a wheel chair and bring my mother in law to the plane. Also they started to board the plane before wheel chair assisted passengers."
Pros: "Great flight good service friendly staff great price"
