Cons: "Better entertainment system , 6 hours flight is tough without it"

Pros: "perfect"
Cons: "better food"

Pros: "Many movies (entertainment) I got front seat with leg space (comfort)"
Cons: "Some water dripped from the ceiling on flight 736 Doha to Montreal, seat 37a. I am usually hungry on long flights and would have liked more food."

Pros: "I had a slight problem with my visa to the country of my final destination but the check in counter crew and management were very polite, helpful and most of all empathetic. Problem was resolved and, All's well that ends wel."

Cons: "I didn’t like the spicy food"

Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "Service basically. For such a long haul flight they did everything they could to make it comfortable."
Cons: "They could have checked the bathrooms more often as trash bins were very full."

Pros: "The food and service."

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Cons: "Business class luggage came late."

Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Non-muslim aircraft allow standard prayer practices inside the cabin but Qatar airways cries over safety issues."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "The Crew The food"
Cons: "Transiting. Made to stay in the airport for over 8hours after a 9hr 35mins flight. I was not happy about it. I hope that, on the return journey, when transiting time would be over 10hours, i would be lodged in a hotel. Thank you."

Cons: "Horrible customer service."

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Pros: "it was nice on the plane the guests were professional"
Cons: "before boarding the officials lacked professionalism"

Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"

Cons: "Flight was delayed materially with little forewarning Service was poor"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."

Pros: "Transit airport lounge allowed owing to gold status"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off on Riyadh - Doha sector. No food was served while we waited in the plane to take off. There was no definitive time given for take off during the three hour wait in the plane."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."

Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "Seats were to narrow for a tall person"

Cons: "Cramped seating on long flight. Headrest not adjustable."

Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"

Pros: "All was great."
Cons: "The airline has so many people from far away places waiting too long for their next connections"

Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."

Pros: "The flight was on time , The crew was very professional ."
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."

Cons: "Boarding was delaeyd 5 hour's ,Very very bag experience, the trailer baby and car seat i waited more than an hour, together with more people, were not found"

Pros: "Crew were so patient"
Cons: "During the delay we had to wait inside the cabin and it was too hot:( children got mad:/"

Pros: "Great selection of movies, excellent food, friendly service."

Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"

Cons: "From more than 1h layover to 5 minutes."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Missed my connecting flight. Had to wait 12 hrs in Istanbul for the next flight to Tirana. I missed my mother’s funeral."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the food was good. Nice selection for onboard entertainment. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "1. The boarding process at Istanbul airport was horrible. No one could speak or understand english. My father was on a wheelchair and he was the last one to be boarded on the plane! There was so much confusion - some people wanted me to go separately from him, others wanted him to walk down the stairs on his own, etc. etc. There were hardly any announcements for people with special needs. Generally they are allowed to board first as they need more time to settle. I could barely find overhead bin space for his stuff. 2. There were several remote controls broken on the plane. A lot of people had to suffer through a non working entertainment screen. 3. One of the hostess was hardly listening to anything I had to say. She seemed to be in so much of a hurry and had a very bad attitude."

Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."

Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."

Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."

Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."

Pros: "Good comfort, staff friendly and smiling. Passport control, security and boarding were straightforward."
Cons: "No boarding pass available online in advance for flights from Nicosia (neither electronic nor printed). Only to be collected at the airport. As a result , although I had no hold luggage (only cabin bag), I had to queue at the check-in/drop-baggage desk to obtain my boarding pass! This is the old prehistoric system dating back to the last century."

Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Departure delay"

Pros: "the crow"

Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"

Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"

Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The middle seat was cramped."

Cons: "Mi sa furat din bagajj !!!!!!!!"

Cons: "When we arrived walking to the shuttle the crew had thrown our play pen n stroller out on the walkway. They didnt take it inside with our luggage.It was checked in with all the suitcases! So luckly my son recognized it as we were walking by. Very disapointed if he hadnt noticed it we would of been out of luck. No baby bed or stroller! Why dont they take it with the luggage OR at least let you know they dont transfer them for you! Not happy"

Pros: "Great food! Also, the selection of movies and TV and other entertainment choices was wide. Seats weren't bad for an overnight flight."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "That I heard great things about Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Staff at the gate and on the plane were rude. At the gate, I asked if there was an isle seat or an emergency row seat available (because I have long legs and long feet) and he said he would check and see. Well, he failed to inform me if any of the seats were available, so I sat in a window seat to Istanbul and a middle seat to Venice. I had to pay $160 for an extra bag to Venice. I asked if the airline allowed military members to check a third bag for free, I was laughed at, and told that US military members get charged more because we're not in the Turkish military. So as you can see, this trip started off horribly. My flight attendant seemed like she was having a horrible day because her attitude and customer service was bad."

Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"

Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."

Pros: "The flight attendents were very nice & service was good."
Cons: "The seats are cramped in economy, so if you are tall it's uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"

Cons: "Movie sound was so poor it was difficult to understand the dialogue."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and 36 hours later, I am stuck at a hotel with 100s of other people none of who have a clue how to contact the airline as all the phones are not being attended to. The Indian sales and reservation team as well as the Turkish customer care are not responding to the situation at all."

Pros: "Chair did not recline properly - 16A/B"

Pros: "Very Nice"

Pros: "Food, comfort..."

Pros: "Excellent air lines overall. From the hospitality of the crew and all their efforts did not go unnoticed. The food was great and the selection of entertainment that was available was much needed for a 10 hr flight."
Cons: "The only issue I had was the WIFI. I was unsuccessful in logging on after a couple of hours and a million attempts. Trying everything but was unable to get my a lot of work done, so it was unproductive time for me."

Pros: "I was onboarding and the land crew did not do anything to oraganize the lines when the passengers were trying tto board."

Pros: "_ very delicious food - nice stuff, - good service - good plane - good selection of new movies,episodes and live TV - long trip to Egypt but with fun and enjoying it - gave chance to those people to entertain you while you are in long trip - one more time was very delicious meals ...like it so much Thanks guys."

Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."

Pros: "Transit was okay."
Cons: "Food was not accommodated - no vegetarian food provided."

Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"

Pros: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "THY is no doubts the best in flights and services. The place, seats, food, entertainment is top. My frequent choice! Crew is very friendly and responds to requests quickly."

Pros: "Beds were cozy and the food top notch"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very professional and forthcoming crew, nice food, good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "A bit older plane with very weak (invisible in light) entertainment system monitors, yet clean and well maintained."

Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."

Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and helpful. Captain kept us posted along the way. They also keep air flowing when we were delayed to take off so everyone is comfortable inside the crowded cabin."
Cons: "Crew should try to wake me up for meals. Luckily my fellow passengers did. Otherwise I would have missed all my meals."

Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "When flight is delayed (by taxing for 45min or delayed take off of 3h40) allow passengers who are trying to connect disembark first."

Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."

Pros: "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."

Cons: "Long delay."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"

Pros: "Seats in economy plus"
Cons: "Very cranky crew. Very long flight due to weather"

Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"

Pros: "Very annoyed with the direct tv. No gluten free option for food/snacking."
Cons: "comfortable seating. nice staff. on time flights."

Pros: "Again, on time and great crew."

Cons: "United Express flies out of Terminal A at Newark (EWR) and routinely they do not have Precheck lanes open. Despite flying on the Saturday after Thanksgiving they only had one mixed security line open. When I asked TSA they said they simply weren't staffed to have a Precheck line open. Everyone was working diligently but this happens every time we fly United out of Newark. Traveling with 2 small children it is incredibly frustrating to have to go through the full security line, take off our shoes, and take all of our electronics out of our bags."

Pros: "I got to my destination and didn’t die."
Cons: "Poorly marked gate. Late boarding time. Sat on shuttle for 20 minutes before they took us to the plane. Then we sat on the plane with the heat blasting and no air available. Flight was delayed due to maintenance."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "Leg room was barely sufficient to open and use my laptop."

Pros: "A FUN HAPPY TIME AS THE CHAPS WHO SAT EITHER SIDE OF ME WERE CHATTY AND HUMOROUS - THEY WERE HAPPY THAT COLUMBUS DAY WAS TO BE CELEBRATED THIS PAST MONDAY AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I WAS TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN THANKSGIVING WITH MY SON AND HIS AMERICAN WIFE AND THEIR 2 CHILDREN - WELL LET'S JUST SAY THE 3 HOURS OF THE FLIGHT FLEW BY. SMILE"

Cons: "Late departure; tiny, smelly plane; cranky flight attendant."

Cons: "Navigating thru channels was challenging."

Pros: "That my suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for the flight"

Cons: "They could have used the bathroom to stuff a few more people on this flight. Whoops, no, bathroom not clean. Tray broken on seat. Seated in last row and asked to close bathroom door of it opened during takeoff. Seated next to very large passenger who wanted to share my seat. Sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting to take off. For this, I paid $650."

Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Very happy"

Pros: "Not really impressed"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"

Cons: "The plane being overbooked, having to check my carry on bag. Making me late to my event having to wait at the carousel."

Pros: "Flight attendant noticed my husbands t-shirt from Galveston and talked briefly about it. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Since it was a smaller plane the seating room was tight."

Cons: "Arrived in SFO late due to delay from SBP on flight 5022. Rushed to the gate for flight 5992 which was scheduled to board at 2:00 and depart at 2:25. Arrived at the gate at 2:12 with 4 other passengers, 3 of which came from flight 5022. Found the door to the jetway closed and no airline employee to be seen. One fellow passenger ran to a neighboring gate to ask an employee for help and was told they could not help us. Another passenger called united customer service and was put on hold. At 2:23 the united employee emerged from the jetway and told us that we had gotten there too late. When we told the employee that all 5 passengers had been waiting at the gate for ever 10 minutes, the employee argued, insisted that we were lying. This was not only extremely unprofessional but also added insult to injury after we had missed this flight due to fault 100% on united's shoulders and none of our own. I am completely baffled how an employee could not wait just a few minutes when you have 5 passengers rushing in late. The employee could have looked in the system and seen that we were already on the ground and coming from a near by gate. I was rebooked on flight 1889 at a later time. After boarding 1889 a maintenance issue was detected requiring all passengers to deplane. It is beyond me why this issue was not discovered until after the flight had been boarded, when at that time the plane had been sitting at the gate for over two hours. After being delayed over an hour we were on our way to Austin. Ultimately I arrived in Austin 5 hours after my original arrival time due to the incompetence of united airlines. I was disappointed by the lack of professionalism and compassion by united employees throughout the ordeal."

Cons: "Although the flight was scheduled to depart quite early, it was delayed twice. Weather was good, but incoming flight was late. Then there was no cabin attendant-40 minute delay. Few amenities in Terminal A of JFK."

Cons: "The gate agent for United at Newark was very rude and dismissive. Would not answer any of my questions or anyone who attempted after me. His attitude was very poor and seemed to not care about his job. Plane was late arriving in Portland Maine."

Cons: "The flight was fine, but my flight was cancelled on the 29th and the agent who helped rebook my flight was abrupt, then I get to the airport on the 30th and the flight is delayed another 2 hours. Of course it was all "weather" related, so no help from the airlines. I'm not a satisfied customer. I would have flown Delta if it was possible."

Pros: "On time...."
Cons: "Bigger plane than usual.."

Pros: "Our connecting flight was more comfortable than flight from San Francisco"
Cons: "Delay because of change of plane and 3 gate changes"

Cons: "The pilot speeding up and then putting on the brakes time after time on flight from Norfolk 10:30 am to Dulles today. Very rough flight and it was beautiful smooth air today. I'm a private pilot and could not figure out what was going on,"

Cons: "Long wait on the plane on the tarmac."

Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cabin temperature became too cold Seats small Engine noise drowned out announcements of pilot and flight attendant Narrow uneven disembarking ramp at Portland Jetport Lack of clarity about flight gate in Newark. I checked in at Terminal C and had to take a shuttle bus to Terminal A"

Pros: "On time quick flight."
Cons: "No legroom, snack a joke, no entertainment."

Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."

Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."

Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than two hours. Entertainment was working intermittently."

Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."

Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."

Cons: "Upon arrival the flight attendant left me stranded on the tarmack without a wheelchair for 20 minutes. I have serious balance issues and was terrified. My connection was very tight and I barely made my plane to Portland. The pilot finally saw the problem and got the assistance I needed. This was the most frightening wheelchair experience I have even had."

Pros: "I wish I would have caught her name but the staff member at the boarding gate was fabulous! She is someone I would want representing my company."
Cons: "The wafer served with the beverage & my seat assignment stunk."

Pros: "I had no complications before/during this flight. It was as if the air travel angels were smiling down on me, making little decisions like, "Sure. Give her that rare luxury of having no one sitting beside her... twice in a row. And toss in not one, but two of those United Airlines cookies." (Those cookies are sooooo good.) Really, at the moment, I can think of nothing anyone could've done any better."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."

Pros: "I liked the service. It's good in general but, looking for better."
Cons: "I didn't like the service sometimes. Especially the hostesses, they are too old. The plane was too small when I flied from Austin to San Francisco. Thank you"

Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"

Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"

Cons: "This flight was cancelled and the later flights to Portland were all full, so I was offered a flight to Boston instead, with no refund for the bus ticket from Boston to Portland, and of course my bag did not arrive with me."
