      Everything was wonderful. We have stayed there before and have always received excellent service. And, their little restaurant was very good about fixing something yummy that I was not allergic to. I have multiple food allergies and restrictions and they were very happy to accommodate me.

                                          1st time on Alaska air but not the last

                                          Flight attendants couldn't have been more pleasant and friendly. Two thumbs up AA

                                          Sep 25, 2018

                                          System where youneequest through the seat back app is good, but I didn’t realize that’s what we were supposed to do until I asked a flight attendant.

                                          Thank you for a job well done. I am a military spouse and I get very nervous flying and you airlines made my experience very good

                                          We love flying United, but feel we shouldn't have had to pay a baggage fee since we're club members AND paid with a united credit card.

                                          Although the flight was delayed an hour for departure, the time was made up in the air so we only 15 minutes late.

                                          There was a 13 hour delay and American was very unhelpful and totally unaware of what was happening

                                          Husband and I could not sit together. Won’t fly United again. No entertainment and cramped and staff wore way too much perfume

                                          My flight was delayed by weather due to poor planning/timing on the airline. This caused me to miss my connection and the next available flight was the next day. Nothing was done to give me a hotel room for the night, or make up for the inconvenience.

                                          Jul 20, 2018

                                          In B’ham the attendant was unable to access AA to give me boarding passes. So in Dublin had to go through customs, get boarding passes, then go through security x2 and customs for the US. Almost missed my flight. My luggage never came on our flight and we had to wait an extra hour because it was on the next flight... also plane in Philadelphia was an hour delayed because of heating issues- why this wasn’t checked and resolved sooner???

                                          Tight seats and space, not a comfortable flight

                                          Jun 24, 2018

                                          Cancelling the flight without responsibility. Bad manners from staffs. No prompt response. Worst airline ever.

                                          Jun 17, 2018

                                          Customer service is just very horrible! I am STILL livid from my experience. If I can help it, I will never look in United's direction again.

                                          Jun 7, 2018

                                          Had to recheck and reassign seating to all. Delayed flight = hunger. Pretzels did not cut it on a long, late flight
