Cons: "None all good"
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight.

Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"
Cons: "The customer service is terrible. They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Cons: "my breakfast was nasty and when i ask the crew who served me she was rude! i didnt eat my meal !"

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."
Cons: "Coach seating on the plane from Nairobi to Qatar, for 5+ hour flight, very tight and cramped. Coach seating on flight from Qatar to NY was slightly bigger but not as spacious as coach seating on China Southern."
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."

Cons: "Seats were a little rickety, and one didn't recline properly."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, efficient and friendly crew. On time performance"
Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."
Pros: "Pilot was super nice and informative when the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Leaving early and getting home early. Flight was perfect."
Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"
Pros: "The flight crew were really polite and helpful."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"
Pros: "Nice employees and service"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "The flight was actually ahead of time!"
Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"
Pros: "The leg room in comfort+ was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like how the cabin temperature was freezing cold. My wife and I were wearing long pants and sweaters and were still freezing. We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."
Cons: "could be cheaper"
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."
Pros: "I love it when there is a TV screen at my seat."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."

Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Pros: "Service the crew gave. Smooth fligh"
Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg space whatsoever. I'm 6'8 and am being told to keep my legs in while it is near impossible or I'm eating my legs. I became so uncomfortable I became nauseous. Anyone above 6'4 is having a rough flight."
Cons: "Flight attendant from IND to Minneapolis must have had a rough evening or bad morning. Service in airplane is usually poor but this one was worse. Bumping most of the passenger when passing, handing drinks behind his back, not smiling."
Pros: "Costmer service great"
Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed shortly before it was scheduled for boarding, which resulted in further delays/cancellations along the journey. Earlier notification may have allowed me to remain in Atlanta a night or two longer with my family as opposed to having had to spend many additional hours sitting uncomfortably in an airport."
Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "3.5 hours late."

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding process. Most of the passengers were Mexican and the announcements were all in English ... quite a bit of confusion. Also, they never announced Premium Boarding, just went from people with kids to Sky Priority ..."
Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Ok. My wife and I are both disabled and use our own scooters to get around airports. My scooter broke down when I got off the plane. Toronto airport became a LOT longer pushing my scooter then. Fortunately CANADIANS GAVE ME A HAND TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS, BAGGAGE CLAIM AND CAR RENTAL. Ok, what to do if something like this happens in America. Maybe to work with security staff cause I was in dire straights without the Canadians to help me. Thank them all. Alton Cason"
Cons: "Delayed four hours"
Pros: "On line customer service was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "We waited overnight in the airport without even an offer of accommodations, toothbrushes, meal vouchers, etc."

Pros: "I didn't like that my bag wasn't delivered from Frankfurt to Barselona"
Cons: "Paying more attention to bags transportation between plains"
Cons: "The cancelled the flight and I end up having to change all the routing of my trip back to the US. So instead of 15 hour trip to the US, and end up having a 24 hour trip!!"
Pros: "Deni, our flight attendant, was most attentive, giving Robert, who is legally blind, assistance with safety features if needed, one on one as we were seated."
Pros: ",Crew was amazing, took extra care of passengers.Very polite and friendly."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, food was good"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "it’s wasnt a full flight, so that was nice"
Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"
Cons: "The only thing that was iffy were the movies Most were not recent But I did watch Bohemian Rhapsody Excellent"
Cons: "Best flight ever! Plane was so empty everyone had their own row to stretch out in! Crew was excellent!!"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Cons: "Ac leaking water on my head. The seat not working properly, I had push it upright with my own hands to get it to be upright."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."
Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."
Pros: "It was NOT Lufthansa. It turns out it was a United flight. Fortunately they now have individual screens with individual options of what to watch like on other airlines. They did have my special meals as I ordered them. I sat next to a wonderful young couple from Finland. That made the journey interesting and pleasant."
Cons: "I really thought I booked a flight with Lufthansa,which I far prefer than United. They do better with beverages, (Perrier, Pelegrino instead of club soda, better special meals, better model airplanes). I am going to have to figure out how to get a Vegan eal that is not spicy. When I order Hindu Vegetarian it is always too spicy. United also doesn't get it and still gives people cheese or something like potato salad obviously made with mayonaise, and some spread that is either butter or margarine on a sandwich."
Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pros: "Comfort and space comparing to my outbound flight from SFO to Munich. This plane was way older but at least there was a little bit of space. Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Entertainment units kept crushing, were not responsive. Difficult to use and enjoy. Frankfurt airport - total mess at the additional passport control before going to "Z" gates. Crowd of people, huge lines, all disorganized. The control for EU passengers was not so crowded but you couldn't see it at the end of the line, so even people who didn't have to were all crowding in the same cue. Horrible experience and I almost missed my flight because of this mess."
Pros: "There was plenty of room, great staff, no worries whatsoever."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "1. Good choice of movies. The entertainment recommendations by airlines were well thought of. 2. Crew and service was one of the best. They timely came and offered juice and water. 3. We were well informed when flight had to make few rounds in the air before landing."
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Nice and polite crew, quick and efficient service."
Cons: "Only one earbud of the headphones can be used, hence the sound was a bit off."
Cons: "The lost luggage for 4 days and a lot of thing were missing from the suitcases."
Pros: "Gate and flight crew were polite and attentive. As I could not check in online, I asked for an aisle seat at gate and crew did all they could to provide one. The flight was easy. Everyone in the flight crew offered their assistance before I asked and they did with a smile. Seat was comfortable and I didn't ask for upgrade. I paid for extra room on outbound flight only to sit in the most cramped seat ever. And on this flight I didn't bother paying for extra room and was pleasantly surprised I wasn't sardined. Very nice Lufthansa! The pilot made minimal interruptions and said only important stuff. No unnecessary pleasantries. Thank you!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent crew. Excellent service."
Pros: "Solid selection of new release films."
Cons: "Emergency landing, information not willingly provided. Passengers threatened with legal action for taking pictures of the emergency landing and aftermath. It appeared crew were more concerned with bad PR than transparency and comfort of passengers."
Pros: "A flight without screen is a long flight."
Cons: "If Canada wants to charge an ETA fee, then this should come up when booking the tickets. Finding out at the airport then being subjected to a mandatory payment process on my smartphone with zero help from Air Canada is just classless. And the crew almost appear delighted communicating the fact that failure to do this means I will not get on the plane. Like expensive plane tickets are bought on charity. I even tried to cancel the ticket and your agents, Calvin and a lady who did not have a badge gave me a card with a 1800 no. that was never answered."
Pros: "I always praised Lufthansa food, but this time we got chicken pasta, which was weird. Please bring back your normal option: chicken + puree."
Pros: "Everything about it ,didn't know i could get quality for less."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Plane transfer and customs at Frankfort were the worst I have ever encountered. Had to go so far between the two gates that had the flight from Seattle not been 30 minutes early and the plane to Barcelona posted as 10 minutes later than originally stated, we would have missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "short hop--good"
Pros: "Lots of great choices in movies and music; good food; great service"
Pros: "Service confort timimg"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Pros: "Service by crew on board."
Cons: "Delay after boarding flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew, despite an almost-full flight"
Cons: "Airbus seating is terrible - seats uncomfortable, seat pitch too small"
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Frequent food and beverage service, plus 2 hot towel offerings."
Cons: "My headphones stopped working 1 hour into the flight, so I just watched movies with subtitles. No air vents, so it was really warm. I'm only 5'2" and felt really cramped in the seats."
Cons: "The connections for audio wasn'y working, false contact..."
Cons: "There was no gate agent in Santa Fe. I had to leave two very expensive bottles of alcohol I’m the trash because they don’t have adequate staff to check my bag."
Cons: "There are too many announcements on the screen before you can start watching entertainment. It takes about 15 minutes."
Cons: "Smooth flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "5 hour maintenance delay due to non-responding maintenance crew. Deplaned. Then re-boarded. Then additional delay due to broken tug. Ridiculous."
Cons: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job. The pilot was able to make up time after 1 hour delay at the airport."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "On this flight was a female flight attendant who anticipated my every need. I wasn’t flying first class, but still, she went out of her way to treat me very well. Her personality and hospitality made my flight relaxing, made me feel loved and appreciated, and the flight felt like I was already home"
Pros: "No entertainment system working"
Cons: "Free WiFi since entertainment was off"
Cons: "Multiple delays with no updates."
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"

Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the plane was sparkling clean"
Pros: "Me gusto todo"
Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"
Pros: "Delayed for 2 and a half hours"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no personal entertainment, poor snack options"
Pros: "The cabin crew bent over backwards to help."
Pros: "We really enjoyed our flights with American Airlines. From the counter to the stop on the plane everyone was great to work with and very friendly"
Cons: "Missed it."
Pros: "The crew on the actual airplane was fine. And we got here."
Cons: "The gate agent was very rude at CLT, and no one was giving us real updates about why our flight was getting delayed, they just kept pushing the time fifteen minutes each time we got close to the boarding time without communication. I get that there’s weight restrictions, but they gate checked my bag on a hardly full flight. I’ve now been waiting an additional 20 minutes after already being delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Non stop flight.wifi."
Cons: "Seat were stuck..both ways..not able to change the position ..no entertainment for long flight. Ground staff forced us to check in the carryon w/o checking the aircraft."
Pros: "Once I got onto the plane, it was fine. It was a short flight. Everyone was nice and they offered drinks and a small snack."
Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "no personal tv in each seat in the international route"
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Seat was tiny. Felt crammed in there. I'm just 6ft tall, but couldn't even use the headrest...it was a back rest. No individual inflight entertainment on a 3 hour flight? I've had screens in front of me for hour long flights. Left 30 minutes late with no indication as to why. Just one of the most uncomfortable flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Cons: "Total incompetence. Navigational system broken, two hours on the tarmac, unboarded, then reboarded one at a time, then out to the tarmac and then back to the gate to do FAA paperwork before finally being over 4 hours late. And they don't really care. Very sad."
Pros: "Service, good, comfort but most of all Price! Great but at $600 round trip from Orlando to Rome."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. We had to wait a long time for take off but the captain tried to keep us informed and the crew was informative and friendly."
Cons: "The wait was difficult."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Pros: "Ability to avoid storms in order to provide a less stressful and safer flight. Actually arrived early!"
Cons: "Did not like having to board from the tarmac."
Pros: "I was traveling with an infant and the staff was so helpful. I will definitely fly AA again."
Pros: "Equipment was an A330. I was seated in Row 11 and had priority boarding. As a result, I had considerable leg room and not trouble finding overhead space. Seating in the back has several inches less "pitch" between seats. A330s provide a very smooth ride."
Cons: "Food: Salad was good, you could taste the arugula. Chicken, once you scrape off the barbecue sauce, was decent. The rest of the lunch did not seem worth eating. The best option if you are hungry is to either eat in the terminal or bring something you do enjoy with you. The movie selection had nothing you likely have not seen already. Be aware that sometimes PHL moves slowly. We waited over 5 minutes for the plane door to open. Bags took about 40 minutes to come up. There were no lines at immigration. Connecting in less than 2 hours can be iffy."
Cons: "Crew: One was swearing at take off, and another was aggressive with getting my tray table down although I told her I didn't want it down because I already had blankets on me and wanted to relax. I didn't need a tray table forced out on me for a drink I could care less about when I'd rather be sleeping on a long flight. The tray table was also dirty - so dirty that the crew member used a napkin to pull it out. Gross. Comfort: Ruined by the rude staff and the dirty tray table that was forced on me. Water was coming out of the wall. Both bathrooms didn't have soap dispensers (not even empty ones - they never had any out to start with), and by the time I went both were out of toilet paper and hand napkins. Food: Didn't touch it because of how disgusted I was at the flight by this time. Entertainment: Something is better than nothing."
Pros: "Service on board"
Cons: "Left an hour late; missed connecting flight. Our final destination was DC; connecting flight was to Philly. Wanted them to Serbs us to DC since we missed our flight. But, the agent said he couldn't due to airline regulation. I was willing to pay more. I'm not happy about it."
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful, the magazine was worth reading and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The seat felt like a wooden block was strapped to my back."
Pros: "A runway at Phoenix was closed and we were told only once we were on board. There was a long delay in the aircraft at the dock and then another on the runway."
Pros: "Well I like the that I was allowed to pre board because I had a 1 year old with me."
Cons: "My one year old was a lap baby. There was virtually no space between the front seat and mine. This made flying very uncomfortable for both me and my daughter."
Pros: "The crew was courteous"
Cons: "Less people on the plan.e. Too full in time of a Covid Virus"
Pros: "Gate agent recognized that we barely made the connection from an Auckland flight, so she moved us to more-comfortable seats. Flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer, but it was a tight connection."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours, but not United's fault. Also the snack selection not great. They did play movies on back of headrests, but we had no volume and no where to plug in headsets that I could see. So basically had to watch a movie with no sound."
Cons: "Seats are incredibly cramped. I am 5'10" and my knees hit seat in from of me with all seats upright...rediculous"
Cons: "United flights always delay. Rushing to Airport with all the traffic delays only to be told the it will be delayed for 30 mins is unacceptable. This occurs every time I fly on United. Also reported that the power outlet is not functioning 3 times but nothing was done .. also huge delay getting out!!"
Pros: "A lot more leg room. Seats more comfortable."
Cons: "On time departures"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the cabin was comfortable."
Cons: "No change required."
Cons: "It was United. Enough said. They stink, especially after having flown on Lufthansa overseas. The United flight had zero leg room."
Pros: "The pilot and flight crew were outstanding.... I’ve never had a smoother flight ... I told them as I was existing the plane"
Pros: "Great staff, pleasant flight, nice options on the screen to choose from, etc."
Pros: "I don’t fly United often but I did just get back from a month in Italy and was delighted to see that they serve Illy dark roasted coffee. It was the best coffee I’ve had on an airline."
Pros: "Truly don't remember his name but there was one young man on the plane that was very helpful highly recommend he's only been with the airline about 8 months and what is professional in every way thank you"
Pros: "There were extra seats due to few passengers. We were very timely in leaving and landing. The dinner was good. I had pasta with spinich and a red and white sause. Very tasty and hot. They came around with plenty of water. The ticket price was very reasonable."
Cons: "This flight was on United. So, there was no internet to purchase as the emails from Lufthansa claimed there would be. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to 3 open seats and laid across them. It was dark and I did not realize that I had moved to Economy Plus. The flight attendant told me that I should not have been there, that she could have charged me for the difference in the seat. Prior to this I felt pretty good about the flight. There was no reason for her to treat me that way. It was apparent that it was a mistake and not done purposely."
Cons: "Having to pay $25 for my small bag to check through on a ticket exceeding $400"
Pros: "Redirected me y a later one way flights fee hours later Not so bad"
Cons: "Got to the parking an hour and a half early Got to terminal an hour early. Missed my flight by 10 minutes"
Cons: "I had booked seat 16C and checked in with that seat. It wasn’t until I was boarding, when I was informed my seat assignment had changed. I asked for my original seat back but was told by the gate agent that it was taken, for unknown reasons. It turned out, 16C remained empty for the entire flight. Flight crew said they did not know why the seat assignment change. I suspect it was done so that the passenger in seat 16D would have the row to herself. I would be very hesitant to fly United again after this treatment."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment option on this leg of my journey, which makes a four-hour flight seem long."
Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "United uses very old and inadequate planes for a route between two major financial centers. No plugs for energy, very bad entretaiment videos, no music, unpleasant crew....this was my last try for the coming years, as I sent same reviews before....!"
Pros: "Both flights"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out why I couldn't accesss movies on my iPhone since I had downloaded the United App prior Also do not like that the free (always nice) entertainment is on a revolving scgedule so couldn't see any movie from the beginning. It would e best if movie streaming was controlled by the viewer beginning to end."
Cons: "It seems to me the time scheduling , is getting a lot better and all fly's are getting in and out on time !"
Pros: "They dimmed the cabin lights so we could view a beautiful lightning storm. Polite and helpful crew kept us informed and comfortable."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The woman who helped me check in"
Cons: "The horribly uncomfortable seat and crowded conditions plus it was really hot as we waited to take off and as we got off."
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "NO DELAYS!!!"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Staff in main cabin was nasty"
Pros: "Such a long walk in both miami and Newark terminals. Miami I was gate 14 and Newark just to get out. Most are now equipt w those running mats."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6.5 hours. Then they delayed another hour. Then they sent a message that it would only be an additional 30 minutes so we rushed back. Then it was delayed another 2 hours. The United people would have happily stuck me with an overnight hotel so I could take their flight the next morning. I asked for the AA routing that worked for a same-day arrival. They happily agreed."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Cons: "The sits where very uncomfortable. And the snack is awful."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Plane leaving SFO never showed. Airlines called for a replacement plane 4 hours after scheduled dep time. Never using United again if it can be helped."
Cons: "See remarks."
Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Everything went to well."
Cons: "Couldn't be more better."
Cons: "Plane 2.5 hours late"
Pros: "Pilot helped with luggage. I was using a cane and c sm very v short"
Cons: "Air quality"
Pros: "The one little flight attendant was sweet and kind."
Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."
Pros: "The seating was very good. We "accidentally" were issued seats in bulkhead which gave us plenty of unexpected leg room. Thank you!"
Cons: "For such a long flight there should be complimentary tv/movie viewing but there was not. And the wifi was spotty."
Cons: "This flight didn't happen."
Cons: "My husband and I had different boarding groups. How are the groups figured out? We were sitting next to each other. Maybe it was because my TSA did not appear on my boarding pass. Why??"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Pros: "Stewardesses were new hires, but still decent with their service."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late with no clear explanatiom, making it really difficult to get home at the time of arrival."
Pros: "Had to switch planes. Done quickly only delayed s half hour."
Cons: "Had to switch planes."
