You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."

With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."

Cons: "Walking under rain from the plane to terminal. Not as good as Lufthansa was some years ago. Old planes."

Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."

Pros: "Everyone at Lufthansa are very friendly so thank you everyone we love you"

Pros: "The planes of United Express are shabby. The service is unreliable. This was the last flight to Cedar Rapids from Chicago on the 14th. It left on time, which I regard as a miracle. That flight is chronically late or canceled. So I felt very lucky, especially after a long flight from Israel. The crew was nice however."

Cons: "Seat was very narrow"

Cons: "Seats with no headrest and no entertainment"

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "Surprisingly tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."

Cons: "Food created by Chef Hawksworth is mediocre at best."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and professional. The trip to the Maple Leaf Lounge always a great experience!"
Cons: "For a business class ticket, the food was not the best. There was no service of any kind until we got in the air. Most airlines in business class will at least give you a drink while u are waiting for everyone else to board."

Pros: "Great flight, on-time, comfortable for economy class, food was decent for airplane food, free wine"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly to some other passengers, they had to wait hours for coffee. Long layover"

Cons: "Terrible service in checking luggage in at Grenada airport. Not the fault of Air Canada"

When we get to the gate they told us our seat is gone , someone else got it and we are booked to tomorrows flight and put in a hotel. Me and other 10 people was kicked off because they over soled the flight . Very frustrating and disappointing !!!!!!! Luckily the lady at costumer service was really helpful and put me and an other girl on a flight to Dublin the same night."

Pros: "The flight has a whole was really nice."
Cons: "It is unacceptable that air canada make you pay for you meal on an almost 5 hours flight, not even offering snack nothing... took air france just before this flight for 2h15 and we had a free meal... think about it ...."

Cons: "Close to a 4 hour delay. No explanation."

Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."

Pros: "I didn't like anything. This was a major disappointment."
Cons: "It was delayed 2 hours. Also, they announced at the airport that there were no monitors on the plane and we should download the Air Canada Rouge app. The connection at the airport was poor so I couldn't download the app but my friend did but she still couldn't watch anything on the airplane even though we were told we could get the app and get the on plane entertainment. I just couldn't believe that in 2017 there are allowed airplanes in such poor condition in the air. Also, I was traveling with 2 children and the airline didn't accommodate me at all. Many seats were empty and they put me in a full row. I had to sit on the floor for 8 hours so my children could stretch and sleep and the fly attendant didn't even bother to ask how I was doing but they would frequently bumped into my children's feet in the aisle. Also, a passenger's seat behind me fell apart. I could write an essay about this airline. Never again!"

Cons: "The 2 hour delay."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "A special thanks to flight attendant Var for the superb service on this flight."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable cabin"
Cons: "Brusque nature of some of the attendants"

Cons: "No end to delays."

Pros: "There are thousands of national brands that are kosher. It's not difficult to find products that all passengers can enjoy."

Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."

Pros: "The crew was lovely and made the trip easy."
Cons: "The boarding process was very strange. The "zone" loading makes no sense because I was at a window seat and other people had already sat down, so they had to get up so that I could go to my seat. Also the entertainment selection is very limited and poorly curated. I would recommend downloading Netflix shows on ur device before using their service."

Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."

Pros: "Good service hassle free"

Pros: "Decent legroom (paid for priority seating)"
Cons: "Plane was old Crew was indifferent Both legs of the flight was very late"

Cons: "Had 2 delays, one at gate for 40 minutesand secind after already boarding - for an hour!"

Pros: "We were delayed a little over an hour (on the field) before take-off because of information from Toronto that fog was delaying the landing time of the planes. The crew handled this excellently by making sure that we were made comfortable and the pilot gave us several updates as he got the information about take-off for Toronto. On the flight to New York on September 28th, I experienced my first landing where not even a tiny bump was felt when the plane touched the ground."

Pros: "Entertainment, Crew, Boarding"
Cons: "Had to pay for food"

Pros: "It was a very short flight, but with all the weather issues in Seattle at the time, they did everything they could to get us off on time (maybe even early) to avoid air traffic control delays."

Pros: "food was fairly good. crew very nice."
Cons: "The selection of movies was poor. not enough current releases. would have liked to have an alcoholic drink for free. (one would be nice)"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Over crowded uncomfortable seats No entertainment only to purchase an IPad or download an app. Too small if a plane for that flight. Will not fly Rouge service sgain"

Cons: "I took AC from Toronto to Japan, and Rouge from Japan to Vancouver. There is significant difference in airplane and service."

Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."

Cons: "I was very disappointed that the airline served absolutely no food to passengers for such a long flight. Other airlines serve meals and beverages to their passengers on trans-Atlantic flights. I doubt I will fly Air Canada again for such a flight, due to the lack of interest and care provided the passengers."

Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."

Pros: "Everything was ok."

Cons: "Horrible to say the least"

Pros: "Plenty of beverages provided and friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment app had to be downloaded prior to take-off to access many of the entertainment features such as movies."

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "No food and no snuks"

Pros: "Everything was fantastic. Great flight crew. Great stuff."

Cons: "When you roll up on clerk at the check-in counter and she's already eyeing your carry-on bag you know you're gonna have a problem. My bag was purchased a month ago and I made sure it met all major airline specs so when she immediately told me I'd have to check it, I told her it would fit no problem in her little mold. She insisted that it would not and I'd have to PAY to check it. I picked it up and easily popped it into the mould but my zipper snagged on the way in and she said that I was not allowed to "force" it in. I then easily lifted it in and out twice without the zipper snagging. Then she insisted that I weigh it. 22lbs is not much at all so I figured I might get caught here but to my surprise I was only at 23lbs. So she immediately said I would have to pay because I was over weight.... BY 1 LB! So I opened my bag and took out bag of carrots and put it back on the scale. She was so pissed that she couldn't charge me anything that she never made eye contact for the rest of the process. She then said that because I had my cat with me I could not sit in the row I had booked because it was an exit row. I insisted that it was not an exit row as I had just flown on the plane four days earlier with my cat in the same seat. She refused and moved me to a row with less leg room despite my having paid for the upgraded seat (I'm 6'4"). Upon boarding, I confirmed with the flight attendant that my original row was NOT an exit row. It was behind the exit row and there are no restrictions for that. One terrible staff member is all it takes to ruin a flight. Air Canada Rouge also happens to be a soda can with wings so that doesn't help."

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"

Cons: "There was no tv and one of the flight attendants was very rude. She acted like it was a chore to talk to us and was rude to other passengers as well."

Pros: "Great service by airline and entertainment was good too."
Cons: "At this time I do not have anything to add."

Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."

Cons: "Flight left 20 min. late and did not so much as get a pretzel with our drink."

Cons: "The entertainment options seem quite limited for a flight that long. Most of the movies and television episodes offered were dated."

Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Landing was smooth"
Cons: "The power outlets didnt work."

Pros: "Very courteous crew!"

Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "There is nothing to like about Air Canada's Rouge service. Their sardine seat layouts are amongst the worst in the industry."
Cons: "1. Seat comfort. 2. On-time departure. 3. Boarding Procedures. 4. Pre-boarding announcements."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service. Made us late for connecting flight."

Pros: "Cabin crew from Palm Springs to Bozeman superior. Flight attendant deliberate, kind, welcoming, attentive."
Cons: "Cannot wait for the day that each seat will have outlets for devices. So tired of having to figure out what device to charge in the very few outlets in the terminal, and then boarding with no outlets in seats. silly in 2019. And floor in entryway wasn't very clean when we boarded."

Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."

Pros: "Crew was great. The landing in Memphis was exceptionally smooth."
Cons: "The seat was ridiculously tight, and I am a very small person. There was no room for my carry on above the seat, and under the seat made it so there was no room for my legs. Also, we sat on the runway for an hour on the return flight before taking off."

Pros: "I enjoyed purchasing a full fare first class ticket for my vacation"
Cons: "I didn’t like being bumped off my flight and being placed on a later flight in coach section. No refund for lesser service."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "seats not really comfortable,and we arrived late to London,good thing I didn't miss my flight but still, Departed late, and when arriving plane flew around in circles before landing according to the captain it was because the run way was busy but I mean if we would've left on time there wouldn't have been problems arrived first."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."

Pros: "Not a whole lot, the flight and comfort were fine. The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment on board unless you paid $7.99, including watching the progress of the flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Newark."

Pros: "That they put my luggage on the wrong flight but at least they got it to me quickly when I got home"
Cons: "That I put my luggage on the wrong flight"

Pros: "Upgraded Business Economy was much nicer than regular Economy. The flight got in to Tampa early."
Cons: "Bathroom not maintained during flight. Vomiting child seated behind us (which I know was not the airlines fault, it was gross though)."

Cons: "Boarding delayed for cleaning. Then sat on tarmac for another 20 min"

Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."

Pros: "Newer plane it seemed."
Cons: "No meal on first Class ??"

Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."

Pros: "Service 0"
Cons: "Service is very bad"

Pros: "An empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined further than all the rest and the new seats that United has installed are incredibly uncomfortBle especially for a long international flight!!"

Pros: "Nothing. Flying has become an nightmare. I will avoid in the future. Late flights and miss connections seem the norm now in this dysfunctional industry."
Cons: "I don't like having to waste my valuable time in airports for days to make a short flight."

Pros: "For the movies that are only viewable try the united app. They have very few licenses for viewing so if you don't grab a movie once you begin you will get an error messsge all tru the 8 hour flight. The air steward just said it is what it is and that I wasn't paying for it anyway . That the little screen in front of the seat from 1988 was enough .."
Cons: "For the movies that are only viewable try the united app. They have very few licenses for viewing so if you don't grab a movie once you begin you will get an error messsge all tru the 8 hour flight.

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything regarding food $ wasn't aware of it"

Pros: "Every member of the crew was really helpful, especially since I had a cello with me. They helped me with tips on how the airport and their boarding system worked, and I'm sure they are just as good with families and people carrying heavier luggage."

Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"

Pros: "I got to my final destination safely"
Cons: "LA terminal had limited food, seating, water, or entertainment options. Flight delayed. No apologies for or explanation of delay. Jam packed. Pay for entertainment. In flight beverage service was s cup of water."

Cons: "Ended up the flight was delayed so united helped me change my flights"

Pros: "I like the plane was big and enough space to move a little, but was great and fast."
Cons: "Didn't like the men staff wasn't friendly, you could tell he was friendly to his side which was first class but when someone else needed help he was very ride."

Pros: "I liked the fact these flights were all on time"
Cons: "Too cramped, in smaller planes seats don't recline, which is difficult for me. HAd one crew member training another on flight, which is ok I guess, but u could tell the trainer was tough on her, felt bad for the trainee but she handled herself well."

Pros: "The improved United iPad / iPhone app is interesting and our aircraft had AC power outlets between the seats (in a hard-to-reach location). USB jacks on the seat backs are much more preferable."

Cons: "Great service all the time , easy to go from one place to another"

Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"

Cons: "The fly was delated one hour"

Pros: "flight landed early"
Cons: "Aflight less than 2 hours should NOT charge for direct TV. you competitors dont charge"

Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was the tiniest, most uncomfortable plane I have ever been on. The inflight entertainment was horrible, everything needed their app, which you can only download with internet and there is no notification about this prior to take off. Seat was horrible, tiny, I was in pain after the flight...never again"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "United was boarding at least TWO flights out of the same gate, at the SAME time. My luggage was delayed and the United agents in philly told me it would be in at 7 pm... It was in at 7 pm two days later. They sent it to Knoxville for some reason? Will not fly United again."

Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Not knowing where my suitcase was"

Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"

Pros: "Nice good and movie selection. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "No tv in headrest."

Cons: "Displaced to another delayed flight 6 hours in total!!!!! Lost of other connections Send me to Frankfurt and then to Madrid one day after programmed The baggage lost Should reimburse us"

Cons: "Unfortunately I am writing this letter to express my concerns and frustrations toward your stewardess on flight 1050, they were aggressive and condescending. A customer ask if they were serving drinks the male stewardess waved his hand and seemed quite annoyed and stated " mam what do you want to drink". In addition he would walk down the aisle and give you three wafer cookies , I'm wondering why three???? That's because he wanted me to pass them down as if I was in an assembly line rather than handing each customer a cookie. He walked through the aisle with water and never asked if anyone if they would like water. It was almost like he was annoyed at everyone in sight . I have never experienced such behavior on flight. I flew Unites AIrlines plenty of times and NEVER experienced this. The other customers in my row expressed their frustration with the unkindness of treatment during the flight. I understand it's a very hectic weekend with the holiday but there was absolutely no reason to experience such behavior. My party will not be looking forward to using united again!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"

Pros: "Great spacious seats."
Cons: "Rude staff at the gate. The lady did not even let me finish my question before saying "No"! I approached her at the gate 1 hour before the flight to explain that I was not able to pick a seat online and I was trying to get an isle or a window seat due to my sciatica nerve pain, but she interrupted and said "no" before I got to ask the question. A few minutes later my name was called by another agent for a seat assignment. When I approached them, the first agent told the agent who called my name "no, she already has a seat" and did not even let me talk! This is awful customer service. I always fly with Southwest, but this time I had to fly with United because of the timing of the flight. I will choose an airline where I can at least get to finish asking a question and apparently that is not United airline."
