Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."

I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Cons: "Too crowded and seat mate stunk like pot , flight was good because we were 20 minutes late and flight crew very nice"
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight. Took about an hour and twenty minutes."
Pros: "Everyone was great"
Cons: "The arm rests on both flights where impossible to lift to get out of our seats, the headsets had a lot of static, the head rest was broke on one side, the food to Germany was fine but back was horrible. Within 20mins of take off you were out of most alcohol and the wine was horrible."

Pros: "Upgrade to first class"
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "My seat wouldn't recline at all. I think it was broken. Not the end of the world, but a bit of a bummer as it was an overnight flight."
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."
Pros: "Great service and gate facilities were the best anywhere"
Pros: "Nice service for short flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 2 days."

Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."

Cons: "Another no go!"
Cons: "Even the layover was good. Seeing the northern lights from.the plane was spectacular"
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "There were not free snacks"
Pros: "Late flight out of Zurich, crew not helpful in advising me how to make connection, missed connection, lost bag, airline staff didn't seem to take me seriously when I said I was worried my bag would be lost."
Cons: "See above. Will try to avoid IcelandAir at all costs from now on."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "the seat was comfortable"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "More food choices"
Pros: "The seat were excellent and comfortable."

Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Ended up with a long layover I couldn't change after hours on the phone with your people."
Cons: "No instruction on use of shared video. No headset. Music?"
Pros: "Legroom is above average, but at expense of seat comfort. Food is good but expensive. Crews were attentious and courteous, but not a strong differential from other airlines. Entertainment was good and easy to access."
Cons: "Boarding in all of our 4 flights was chaotic and a combination of lack of organization from Icelandair and discipline from passengers. Space for boarding is scarce and confined. And when they call half of all passengers of a full 757 or 767 to board at the same time... the law of the jungle is stablished. Even with just a little more effort and organization from the airline it would be possible to make this a better experience for all passengers. Be aware of what you are told when you buy your tickets. They sold economy tickets to us and then charged a lot for bags telling us our tickets were economy light, even with their own receipts or tickets not mentioning anything about light on them."
Pros: "Everything about the flight!"
Cons: "That food cost $$"
Pros: "Exceptional flight crew and we had a smooth flight. It was my daughter's first flight and she loved it as well."
Cons: "Really? Not even a snack on a 6 hour flight?"
Pros: "Very nice crew, enjoyed having two seats only for my husband and I"
Cons: "It was very difficult to place anything under the middle seat/one of the seats with a black box under it. Not even a small bag would fit very well. There was also cold air blowing that I couldn't turn off on one of the legs."
Pros: "Airline crew and overall experience was excellent."
Cons: "Long layover in Iceland, and refusal to work with me on scheduling. They would not give refund for ticket or offer to help me change the flight date. Very rude customer service."
Cons: "1- Boarding was difficult. Embarking in Reykjavik was in gate D3 . We have to walk and climb stairs with our carry on. Once we got to the ramp level we noticed that gate C23 was at same level of the boarding ramp. Why to make elderly people climb stairs with loads? 2- 5 to 6 hours of flight and this cheap airline only offers a little cup of water, coffee, soda or juice (once from Dulles to Reykjavik, twice from Reykjavik to Dulles). Otherwise you have to pay above reasonable price for cold plates. Icelandeair is a Cheap airline not to the level of a nation like Iceland or not to the level 0of any other Latin American, Asian or some of the European airlines that offer a decent snack in flights of 5 or more hours."
Cons: "had about 15 minutes to get through customs"
Pros: "The Icelandair ground staff tried their best to deal with the impossible but the end result was still totally unacceptable. See below for details."

Pros: "Best airplane experience I've ever had! Great airline!"

Pros: "The crew was very courteous, the in-flight entertainment plentiful, and the coffee was excellent!"
Cons: "Gate agents in Munich were a bit slow on getting people checked in. Also, the seats were SUPER-cramped in economy."

Cons: "No food included, overpriced euro junk on menu, asked for sugar - received another coffee, little legroom, lousy entertainment"
Pros: "GREAT FLIGHT"
Cons: "no snacks!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and flight"
Pros: "Everything you hear about Icelandair is true. The crew is polite and caring and the planes are clean and efficient. I will definetly use this airline again. The price was right, the in flight entertainment was on point, and the service was above what I expected."
Cons: "I'm not sure if this was just a fluke, but the plane was freezing for me! I Had an air vent next to my feet and not even extra socks and two blankets wrapped around my feet kept my toes from turning into little piggy icicles!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding was 20 minutes late. Left late, arrived late."
Pros: "Same as before: Both flights on icelandair excluded basic things that are usually standard on other airlines I've flown with: for instance there were no free headphones or snacks or food at all, only things available for purchase. I did not have a good flight experience."
Pros: "Everything was great. Liked the pillow, blanket and everything offered."
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was we felt like we were being starved into buying food. We would have bought food anyways but the lack of peanuts or crackers made us feel cheap."
Pros: "Connection waited for us even though our flight was about an hour late!"
Pros: "Super pleasant crew, timeliness, efficiency, cleanliness."
Cons: "It was too hot on both legs of the trip: boston to reykavik and reykavik to stockholm. Also, the airvents above the seats were ineffective."
Pros: "Clean and roomy flight! Good service."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks was surprised about this on an international flight."
Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, let me sit in the cockpit. Drinks/snacks were rapidly distributed to facilitate sleep during the redeye, legroom in my extra legroom seat was sufficient, and bathrooms were large. Also, we left swiftly and arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of IFE screens was disappointing and the seats had zero padding."
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "Short swift flight"
Cons: "The way the plane was boarded took a long time for such a small flight"
Pros: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "Wider seats. More entertainment options other that the Limited Live Television options."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seating was bad"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort. Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"

Cons: "Not being delayed. Not waiting an hour for our bags once we got off the plane."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew aboard the plane was very friendly"

Pros: "Flight delayed for 12 hours. Had to reschedule both flights"
Cons: "See above. Missed work."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Cons: "Delayed more than once missed connecting flight and didn’t put me up in a hotel for the night"
Pros: "Finishing my flight, being able to say I'll never fly American again."
Cons: "Without notice or warning, I was required to pay $200 for my dog, tranferring from Alaska Air, to ride in cargo for the 2nd leg of my trip. My fare was approx. $84. They would not accept cash, but made me spend another $5 on a "gift card," because I don't own credit cards. Rude, uncaring, marginally competent ground crew."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Cons: "Foods are so salty overall. No individual entertainment system available."
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Cons: "I paid $20,for the in flight Internet and it didn't work. Neither did my monitor."
Pros: "Rarely do I find the airline food excellent, or even good. But the Pasta dish on the Amsterdam-to-Philly flight that is what I experienced, absolutely delicious."
Cons: "Closed gate early and left me stranded. The AA employees could care less about you. They are hired for the rudeness and indifference."
Pros: "Very nice, hot meal a bonus - didn't know we'd be given dinner :) Seats ok - leg room acceptable"
Cons: "Thought we were flying British Airways - even this survey says it's BA - went to wrong ticketing desk and was sent to American - had to let our friends in Germany know the change by email - worried they wouldn't get the email in the muddle of their night and they'd go to BA gate undead of American. It was a little disconcerting"
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "On time, good food, good entertainment and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Lots of movie options."
Cons: "I didn't like anything else about the flight. My seat was broken and the seats are incredibly cramped! Absolutely no leg room whatsoever. I am 6 feet tall which is an average male height so I can't imagine how anyone taller fits in those seats."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "I loved our flight from Anchorage alaska to Los Angeles California. Flight attendants were kind and helpful. We had plenty of leg room and it was great flight. Loved our window seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight attendants snarky attitudes when we would ask for son."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "People in front of us were reclining the entire time and our seats right behind them were tight. Did not like having to pay extra for seats"
Pros: "Good food & movies."
Pros: "The movies were great. Staff wonderful, accommodating."
Cons: "I absolutely hated the flight from pdx to Minnesota. Plane felt unsafe, smelly & generally scary."
Pros: "Less lay over need pleasent crew"
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and I liked the film selection."
Cons: "I was placed in the back of the plane and subsequently they ran out of the food option I would have chosen. There was only pork left which I cannot eat. I was left hungry and the stewardess was rude about it- I understand that she was likely tired as I was in the last row but it's literally her job. The flight was also pretty turbulent- which is usually worse in the back of the plane."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "How amazing is it in any service oriented business that the professionals around you provide service with a smile and are attentive to your needs!"
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Cons: "Last row. They forgot to assign us seats and we almost didn't get one. We had to because we had a dog. They put the dog under the wrong reservation and were concerned they charged someone else for it. No concern for fact they forgot to get us seats. We were in last row center seats. Horrible. Then we were starving and willing to purchase food. By the time they got to us, they were out of food. What?!?! We were willing to pay! Rude personnel. Horrible all around. Hate America. United is better."
Pros: "Routine flight. No issues on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row seats, felt they were not worth the extra money. The extra legroom was great but the armrest did it move and I felt like I was sitting in a box."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the flight was smother and on time, boarding was timely"
Cons: "The plane was older with a poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Service and staff were great!"
Cons: "nothing still remember it was a good flight"
Cons: "The person who made the safety speech and other announcements spoke so rapidly as to slur words together. I believe I did not understand anything that she said."

Cons: "Food from Dulles to Munich was one Of the worst dishes served on the overseas flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and plenty of room. Good food!"
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed as a result missed my train"
Pros: "In flight experience was ok."
Cons: "It was difficult to learn gate information, was provided at the last minute, which is tough in a long airport like Munich. Airline few us into an airport that was the center of a political protest which was known at the time of takeoff. We should have been warned as it required 4 hours to leave the Barcelona airport, walking away from it 3 miles in the rain."
Pros: "crew was initially helpful but then did not help with our connection but might have been out of their control-would have been nice to know that there was no chance to make connection with the initial flight delay We ran all the way and still did not make it-too far and connection was too tight with having to go thru customs very grateful to the Luftansa attendant who helped us at the desk of the gate to find and book another connetion"
Cons: "more time between flight connections"
Pros: "The onboard crew was great and the agent at the Dulles airport who helped with my ticket was great (don’t remember her name)."
Cons: "I couldn’t upgrade my seat since my ticket is ‘restricted’ even though I am willing to pay more for another seat. I am a tall person and was assigned a middle seat for a 7.5 hour flight. Flight was also delayed getting into Munich so I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Enough storage space 4 luggage!"
Cons: "Almost everything: Late departure (2 hrs!) due to luggage issue (???) - narrow middle seats, could not move much and no sleep at all!!! Horrible experience!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was delicious and flight was nice and smooth!"
Pros: "the only good thing I can say about the flight was that the crew was for the most part friendly"
Cons: "Everything. From the chaotic boarding scheme to the uncomfortable seats that really didn't recline. Less than 2 hours into the fight, they were out of red wine. They were also out of chicken for dinner so the only choice was vegetarian pasta. As for movies, what happened to Gogo Entertainment? I had to use their headphones to watch the movies on their screen instead of my iPad. So, I couldn't use my bluetooth headphones. There was no close caption so it was hard to watch the movies amidst the noise of the engines."
Pros: "The arrival gate was extemely close to the departing gate. I did not have to walk the usually long and exhausting distance from one terminal to another. Thank goodness."
Cons: "Broarding was well organized by groups andmoved quickly. The choice of dinner was not an option. By the time the stewardess reached me, only pasta was left. But having italian gelato for dessert was an acceptable compensation. Breakfast ,however, was ho..hummm without any redeeming compensation. choice of beverages was refreshing."
Cons: "Plane left one hour late."
Cons: "Unable to choose seat"
Pros: "My original reservation was on Lufthansa and was changed to United Airline without our consent Very terrible and rude check in agent We were never told that we have to check our luggage out in Munich and check it back in for our final destination Since the layover is more than 12 hours Uncomfortable plane and very old it’s outdated tech and entertainment Very poor food quality and quantities"
Cons: "Nothing absolutely Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"
Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "getting to DC 7 min late, we miss the flight to Muchen....literally watching the plane leaving. -waiting in line for United (since 2 flights were operated with them) they tell us we have to go to Lufthansa to solve the issue. -going to another terminal, to Lufthansa client service desk, they tell us is United who has to check us into a new flight. -on the phone with United, they give us as solution a 22h waiting period, with no hotel payment. -as one of us was still on the phone, the other is trying to find a solution with Lufthansa. Eventually they say that United was to transfer our tickets to them, so they can put us into the next flight to Munchen. -5 h later they finally manage to book us together, into a Munchen flight. -getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania."
Pros: "Large plane. Cheerful Staff. Food was good as airline food goes. Power and video at every seat. And there was enough room for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seat didn’t really recline. Couldn’t sleep"
Cons: "Our flight to Munich arrived late. And our connecting flight to Milan was originally scheduled to leave just 50 minutes after our arrival in Munich. We did not make our flight to Milan and have lost a half day of time at our destination, as well as more than $100 in non-refundable Italian train tickets. Even if our plane had arrived to Munich on time it would have been nearly impossible to make our connecting website. Flight pairings with this short of a layover should not be suggested at this airport when travelers are required to go through passport control."
Pros: "Flight was on time for departing and arriving into Munich."
Cons: "Boarding is way too slow, and always seems to be so confusing. There were a couple of crying babies on the flight that make sleeping a lot harder. A German flight should have at least one German bier for their customers. Gate agents moved my wife and I into a row with another customer and gave our seats to single person-which makes no sense to me, so he had two open seats around him, and we were in a full row. B.S."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Pros: "United was flexible when I had to change my reservation at the last minute. Good service on board."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and helpful.Entertainment was decent, good movie selection"
Cons: "Meals - well let’s just say that not everyone enjoys bbq chicken and grits - mixed."
Cons: "The itinerary printed out that I was traveling Lufthansa so my nephew left me off at Terminal B; but after trying to print out my boarding pass unsuccessfully, the supervisor said that I was booked on United which is at Term C. I had to rush on the air train to the crowded Airtrain & running thru Security & Customs."
Cons: "Our plane was defective so had to be replaced. This is fine, I certainly am willing to wait for a new plane if it means not blowing up over the ocean. The problem was how little the attendants at the gate communicated the situation to us. What should have been a brief layover became a 12 hour nightmare. The gate attendants did finally issue meal vouchers but they waited until 10 minutes before all the restaurants closed and only issued $10 a person. This is enough to buy a hot dog at an airport... We were told there wouldn't be any rescheduling of missed connections until we were "airborne". This resulted in mass panic and confusion upon reaching our destination. We were told to go to the service desk, half an airport away, but once the entire passenger contents of the plane arrived at that far flung service desk, we were mostly turned away to seek help at individual gates. This lack of communication meant I missed the next next available connecting flight and now have a further six hour layover. I understand accidents happen and planes can break down but the nearly complete lack of care and customer attention is, frankly, disappointing. I've now had nearly an entire day added to my travel time. If I'd been willing to loose that time I would have paid $600 less for my ticket. United finally offered a token of their appreciation : a $100 e-voucher. I have spent more than that on food and coffee in airports for the past two days while trying to survive until my next connections."
Cons: "3 hour delay from washington to munich..missed my connecting flight and was booked on my flight to athens 12 hours later!!!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "Clean, on time, professional crew."
Cons: "I wish there were more bathrooms available for the economy class."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "Others than below all good..."
Cons: "At LEAST 35% of the seats were empty..... it was a 11 hours flight and 5 hours after departure I tried to take a nape somewhere where there was no one sitting. After one hour, the flight attendance woke me up saying there is premium economy and I cannot stay there... had to return to economy. I'm a hit disappointed since It was a while after the take of and I was not taking anyone sit..."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "First, our flight UA 194 was redirected back to SFO after 2 hrs of flight due to problem with weather sensor device or something of flight. Then we were cheated and provided with Economy class seat from FRA to MAA for the next day. We paid for full Business from SFO to India but our connecting flight was changed to Economy seat. Very very very poor and fraud technique from United crew. We are very sad about this and we will never ever take United or Lufthansa again. Never ever + we will request all our relatives to abandon these kind of cheaters."
Pros: "It was generally quiet and peaceful. I called the stewards at one point and they were very prompt and attentive."
Cons: "Teeny tiny seats on an overnight flight? I had to ask my rowmates to clear the row so I could find my glasses that had fallen under my seat because there simply wasn't room to maneuver even an arm down to manually search for them. This is not to mention that most people sleep on these flights; how is that comfortable for most regular Americans?"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
Pros: "For the amount I paid I'm surprised all we got was mixed nuts! Very disappointing! I hated watching movies on my iPhone, wished you had mounted headrests"
Cons: "Free food or more snack options! Tv consoles in the headrest"
Pros: "My flight attendants on my flight were wonderful and so was the boarding crew at San Fran's airport to Las Vegas were awesome as well. The space I had on my connecting flight to vegas was awesome and the feature it had to charge devices were a nice too."
Cons: "The crew at the front desks and at the boarding area for my flight from Anchorage, AK, to the San Fran airport however, were extremely rude. The rating for the crew is a 2 because although my flight attendants were awesome, but the service given to me and to my fellow flyers by the Customer Service Agents/Reps at the front desk and the training of a newbie at the gate, when boarding at the Anchorage, Alaska, airport was terrible. They were extremely unprofessional and did not seem to care that the tones of their voices, their facial expressions, as well as their body language, showed that they lacked the manners and knowledge of compassion, respect and courtesy. Their rotten attitudes were insufficient at making the customers/guests of the airlines feel comfortable before flying. I did not appreciate being spoken to the way some of the reps did."
Pros: "We liked the video on demand on overnight flight."
Cons: "The dinner choices on the overnight flight to Munich left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and professional. They took the time to fix the plane instead of flying a plane that needed maintenance"
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was five hours late because of maintenance. This caused me to miss my connection. The rebooked connection was 5 hours after we landed and still my luggage did not make it. The rescheduled flight was supposed to arrive just after midnight, but because of lost luggage, I didn't get out of the airport until 2 am and missed my ride."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. The flight was "saved" by having a friendly fellow passenger sitting next to me. She was pleasant to talk to, but that had nothing to do with the services provided by United."
Cons: "Overall, I find United flights to Europe to be fairly unpleasant. Sometimes the staff can be nice. On this flight female staff with whom I interacted were nice, but the steward who was serving people near me seemed abrupt and largely uninterested in us. In fact he lectured an elderly woman about stowing her luggage for several minutes without realizing she did not understand him. The reason was she was Polish and did not speak any English. I had called out to him several times to tell him this, but he did not hear me. The seats on the flight were very cramped (I sat in 37G). By comparison, I found the seats in the Lufthansa flight I took from Munich to Tel Aviv to be much more spacious. In comparison to Lufthansa, I think United is a second class (or worse) airline."
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused a delay in departure. United Airlines put us on another TWO flights to get us to our destination. Arrived almost eight hours after originally scheduled. Traveled across the ocean to witness and perform my niece's wedding ceremony. I am the priest who is marrying them and conducting the ceremony and the whole wedding was missed and ruined. All this travel for nothing. Very upset and dissatisfied that United airlines did not put us on a different airlines in order to ensure my timely arrival. No attempt was made to rectify the situation. This was not the itinerary I paid for! In my original schedule, I would have had plenty of time to arrive in Dublin, pick up my rental car, proceed to the hotel, get dressed, drive to the wedding site, and perform the ceremony. Because of my absence, the ceremony could not take place and everything is ruined. United Airlines could have at least offered some kind of monetary compensation or travel voucher to apologize for their mistakes. Will not travel with them again. Very very dissatisfied. Will make sure everyone knows how their issues affected my travel and tell others not to travel on United. What a terrible way to start our journey. This confirms the horrible reputation that United has earned in recent weeks in the media."
Pros: "The attendents were helpful and nice except in the situation I've listed in dislike. The plane left on time and arrived early and we didn't have to wait 20 minutes for a gate to open up."
Cons: "I chose the back window seat right in front of the restrooms. Crewmember even said it was the worst seat in the house. Although I didn't pay to upgrade, thee were available seats up there. The attendant even said she would ttry to move things around once people were seate without anyone asking. She just knew our row was going to be uncomfortable.. I am tall with big shoulders, the gentleman next to me was large. All that I ask is the attendant come back after all is settled and explain that it wasn't possible to move things around. Although, if there were seats available I should have been offered a different seat. I have flown a lot on different airlines. I've flown on a 15 hour flight overseas. This is BY FAR the most uncomfortable I have EVER been."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "If nothing else United has been consistent in their late departures and arrivals backed by absolute lies about the reason for delays. Staff says one thing then Pilot says something completely counter. Then the lack of any sort of heartfelt appology adds to the insult. Every flight was overbooked by at least 5 people. Total incompetence. Moreover, United has made profit so obviously more important than client comfort. The seats were similar to a straight back Dining room chair except with your knees in your chest. They even took away the seat back pouch as a smal comfort to place items to be replaced with an 8 inch high mesh that fits nothing larger than your cell phone. A 6 hour flight and 1 drink service with 1/2 glass of soda. Pay $7.99 only to find out that video does not work through Canada which was the majority of the flight"
Pros: "I ended up missing my connecting flight because the flight left the airport almost an hr late....once i get to my connecting flight...ive missed it...soooo i had yo wait 4hrs for the next available flight & missed my doctors visit......im sooo pissed....."
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "I am 5'4" and had no leg room. My knees touched the seat in front of me the whole time. The in seat entertainment was broken on the entire plane for the flight. Simply won't ever fly in a plane so cramped ever again."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to medical reasons and I am still trying to get a refund."
Pros: "The veg meal was better than anticipated and the entertainment system had many options"
Cons: "Small child in the seat in front of us wouldn't quiet down on the red eye flight. More delays on this flight due to a maintenance issue."
