                                          Love old plane seats. May alaska air never replace its old jets.

                                          The flight was super delayed in departing, but staff was friendly and helpful to try to make us comfortable.

                                          Flight was 30 minutes late but we were not in a rush, so all good. We were shuttled to the plane but that was a nice change in pace. We are easy to pleased.

                                          Alaskan airlines was great at least I got a straight shot home. But if I would have had a phone call I would have known to go to United first and then go to Alaska airlines

                                          I arrive at the SFO n my flight was CANCELLED for whatever reason I don’t know. I drove myself for the occasion I need to attend. Now I found out that my return flight was CANCELLED too??? I NEED A FULL REFUND FOR THE NIGHTMARE I JUST EXPERIENCED WITH UA!

                                          1 gate - 4planes 200 hundred people waiting Can’t hear the announcements No seating people sitting on the floor

                                          Nov 2, 2018

                                          Orbitz did good. But the plane had such cramped seats and unfriendly staff. I watched one stewardess spill soda on a passenger. No greet coming in and took forever to take off. This is why I hate United. Unfortunately there were no other options where I was flying. Otherwise I sure as heck would not fly with them.

                                          They cancel my both flights! I had an emergency and I have to loose my departure flight, which I am ok, but they cancel my return flight after I paid fully for my flight??? How is that right??! I paid for my full tix! I can still use my return flight! Is paid for already!!!

                                          Mar 5, 2018

                                          Blindsided by carry on fee. Did not pay going on Alaska. Bait and switch. United staff rude and dismissive. Will NOT fly United again or use Orbitz.
