Pros: "Crew was great, seating was cramped."
Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"
Cons: "Very happy on Doha to ORD"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful for everything"
Pros: "YES--best airline for sure!"
Cons: "Congratulations on achieving excellence."
Pros: "The crew was professional. I had acute diarrhoea they insisted to eat some thing before they gave me the medicine,which was perfect. They checked every time my situation they even asked if I need a doctor waiting for me at the airport."
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"
Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."
Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."
Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"
Cons: "Zero customer service, absolute waste of money,. I should have read reviews before using your services"
Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Pros: "In time ,food"
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Good movies, Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"
Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"
Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"
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."
Pros: "Thanks for good service"
Cons: "Everything was good service food entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"
Cons: "Ground/baggage handling in ATL. Bags took 40-50 minutes to show up on carousel. The ground staff at ATL dropped the ball when everything else was going so smoothly"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly and helpful, easy to communicate with Great movie options The 13.5 hr plane had very few passengers so I was given an entire row of 3 seats to myself Food is generally good -- Haagen-Dazs ice cream was a plus!"
Cons: "Second flight boarded an hour late, though it was never listed as delayed (a bit confusing) 4 hour plane had very little leg space"
Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Cons: "Dely to time"
Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."

Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They were very kind."
Cons: "The biggest problem with my flight was it was very crowded so it was hard to get comfortable for such a long flight. I wish I can afford first class but I can't."
Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "baggage process could have been better, i was made to remove stuff just because was 1-2 lbs overweight in my baggage. Never had this issue with other airlines (especially when its only matter of 1-2 lbs.)"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was top notch, and, in business class, served to order anytime. The seats were comfortable and the supplied noise cancelling headphones were great. Pillow, blanket and pajamas supplied were all nice quality. Restrooms kept spotless through a very long flight. Best business class I have experienced on any airline."
Cons: "The one glitch was the entertainment system, which froze several times and needed to be re-booted."
Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "The seats feel like a prison at times. It's a pain to ask to go to the bathroom."

Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "No milk available."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "More food."
Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Cons: "Never enough room and the food was okay. But what’s new about this when it comes to air travel?"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Cons: "Had to wait for a gate in Sav for 20 minutes and another 20-25 for bags"
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"
Pros: "They did get to reschedule me on both my flights, but lost my bag."
Pros: "The gate agents were nice enough."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour without information as to why we were delayed. We missed our connection in Atlanta, even though we arrived at the gate in time to see the gate agent shut the door while we were running and waving. We arrived at the gate 8 minutes before the flight departure time also. The flight attendant on the flight from Fayetteville just handed out water and cookies without asking what you wanted. She had coffee and snack mix but didn’t ask anyone, just handed them what they got. Overall I was very disappointed in the flight from Fayetteville, NC to Atlanta and with the gate agents at the Atlanta airport. I usually expect more from delta. They didn’t offer vouchers to make up for the missed connection or offer to pay for a hotel since the next flight out was the next morning."
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Cons: "No food or drinks"
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and in time. I enjoyed the WiFi service and the extra room in the seats. Plane was gorgeous! Staff was courteous and professional."
Cons: "The fact that I sat on an airplane for over three hours due to a delay and couldnt get off"
Pros: "seat was fine."
Cons: "A/C was blowing right on our heads. Asked to have the A/C turned down. They said sure. The nothing. Asked again? Nothing. 3rd time, my neighbor and the people in the seat ahead told them that we were ll cold. Nothing! I was sneezing by the time we landed."
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Pros: "the seats were ok"
Cons: "was little late"
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and a half"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Pros: "Seats and snacks were ok"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn't that good. Small screen, headphone input didn't work on my seat."
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Loading process, seats and drinks were great"
Cons: "No TV on back of the seat but thankfully the ladies next to me were very entertained"
Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "The gate crew was great, so was the flight crew. My journey home was quite calming."
Cons: "The delay, I know it was due to storms."
Cons: "727 modern plane free movie free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, boarding area, and friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Flight and service were fine. Because there was a long delay, the ticket agents supplied free sandwiches, drinks, salads, and coloring books and tried to engage the waiting passengers with games. I won a $50 Delta gift certificate! The captain had good communication with the passengers to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours because no crew was available."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."
Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."
Cons: "Sat in Row 34. Engine noise was overwhelming."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"
Pros: "Jason the flight attendant made the flight very enjoyable and pleasant. I was a bit sad saying good bye to my family but Jason’s upbeat-positive energy brought so much happiness to my day. Exceptional employee! Thank you for hiring such a kind spirited person!"
Cons: "101% satisfied with the flight! No issues!"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "American Airlines seemed to have upgraded their airplanes. The seats, which were abominable in the past, were comfortable. They also had in cabin movies. I used to prefer Jet Blue or any other airline, just taking AA for the price. Now, if all the airplanes are updated, they are on par with any airline."
Pros: "Flight arrived early. Stewardess although newer was attentive"
Cons: "Nothing the flight was great"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "The crew was pretty nice. The seats were actually comfortable."
Cons: "I don't know; it's economy in a plane. It is what it is."
Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"
Cons: "The entertainment / announcement system has issues. The safety video was interrupted and segments repeated randomly."
Cons: "We had a good trip"
Cons: "Two hour delayed."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"
Pros: "Thankfully they gave out ear buds on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was over booked, at the point of boarding there was no room left on the flight for any carry on’s so they wanted everyone to check bags one particular lady at the gate snatched my husbands boarding pass out of his had and threw it back at him so it landed on the floor. She came back with a checked bag ticket, this bag could have fit under the seat. We would have preferred not to check the bag because it had everything in it we needed access to like medication, ear buds, book, tablet, it also contained my Jewlery and various other things. The lady was extremely rude when I told her I prefer not to check the bag, she said we could take everything out of the bag we needed but that would have been 70 % of what was in the bag, where was I supposed to put all this stuff? My small purse was already full. my husband was upset at her treatment and said something to her and she told us we where welcome to book another flight. I paid a hell of a lot of money on this flight alone plus upgraded our seats with extra legroom. Once on the plane the seating was so crammed, uncomfortable and no legroom. My seat reclined but my husbands did not. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Getting from A to be safely"
Cons: "Being so delayed that we had to sprint to make our connection flight. Starting a transatlantic flight with sweaty armpits is never fun for anyone involved, us or our seat neighbor"
Cons: "Gate changed 4 times...late boarding and even later departure 2 hours. Put us on a small plane and then do maintenance. not cool."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The plain was very old meaning no screens, outlets, pretty much no entertainment what so ever."
Pros: "No unexpected surprises."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "No negative surprises"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic, but not hideous."
Pros: "I planned a very affordable & organized trip, using KAYAK! Very satisfied so far!"
Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."
Cons: "The three hour delay and the terrible food served."
Cons: "No message to call with passengers with kids to board first or any military personnel boarding first."
Cons: "No longer free entries on board like before"
Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"
Pros: "The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great."
Cons: "The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "We didn’t have food service because of turbulence. But that wasn’t the crew’s fault."
Cons: "They broke a wheel on my luggage."
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Cons: "I was expecting to fly British Airways but instead I was booked on a American Airlines which flew me on an old shitty airplane. Never again."
Cons: "I bought through an affiliate (bought British, flew American) and was not redirected properly to the check in process. In fact I was locked out of the check in process for "unsuccessful attempts""
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Pros: "So great to see the flight attendants help a family (not my own) make sure that a child could get to the toilet even though it meant a brief delay before we could take off. so helpful."
Pros: "It was good fly can't complaint the attention was great"
Cons: "When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat"
Pros: "Flight was good,"
Cons: "American (Alaska was a code share) did not tell us which terminal this flight left from. It was a sattelight terminal which required a long slow bus ride. Carrying luggage up and down stairs. The deplaning experience was such I would avoid the only nonstop to our destination."
Pros: "After missing my flight by a few minutes, AA booked me on the next flight which was only a 40 min wait, which was a blessing."
Cons: "Missed my initial flight due to how long it took to get my baggage to go through customs (after arriving from Japan.) My baggage was then left in Dallas and I had to wait until the following night to receive it."
Cons: "When your on your honeymoon it sure would be nice to have a seat next to my husband like we requested."
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice. That's all!"
Cons: "The value of first class in relation to how much more it costs is way out of proportion. It's not worth the extra money. Again, why even ask about entertainment? Over a four hour flight with no movie or music unless provided by yourself is complete and utter bullshit. Again, the available free wifi is bullshit."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "They had problems fueling the plane. It starting to seem like there's always some kind of problem with these planes at American Airlines"
Pros: "Plane was not crowded, boarding was fast, take off was on time & arrival was on time."
Cons: "Had to pay $25 to check in 1 luggage, i should be able to check in 1 for free after paying $600 for a ticket. Selection of drinks & snacks was poor."
Pros: "I'm completely satisfied"
Pros: "Finally upgraded planes on this route. Dreamliner was very comfortable."
Cons: "Hour and a half delay for a scratch on a cargo door. Glad safety is a top priority but it must have been more this just a scratch."
Pros: "Good crew. Early arrival"
Cons: "No entertainment. Not enough food"
Cons: "last minute seat change to front of eco cabin (no foot room or small bag allowed)"
Cons: "The seats were the most terrible seats I have ever experienced in all my years of flying. I'm a small person and even I couldn't get comfortable. The seats were curved in the wrong way and didn't recline enough for a 3 hour flight. The crew made the boarding and deplaning process worse by not paying attention to what was going on in the plane."
Pros: "crew efficient, cabin clean"
Pros: "fast boarding process. checked in bags for free due to full flight. Crew were very helpful and serviced with a smile throughout the journey. Baggage was on time on all the airports. On flight entertainment was very good. leg room good in all the flights."
Cons: "Seats should be more comfortable for such a long journey. economy class seats has very less support especially for the 11 hour flight."
Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."
Cons: "Not take away my carry on bag at gate (was not a size problem), don't change people's seats."
Pros: "Super sweet and helpful crew, comfortable seats, fast boarding."
Cons: "My overhead light was broken. I didn’t need to use it so it was no problem at all, but that’s the only thing I could think of"
Pros: "Crew is always great with United."
Pros: "I have long legs. My seat a window exit seat had enough legroom so that I did not feel cramped"
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."
Pros: "The crew was really great. Arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "The snack was terrible. To sweet"
Cons: "flight was delayed. tug car didn’t work"
Cons: "Delayed flight, moved me off to another flight so delayed I've missed two connections and haven't left yet."
Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."
Pros: "The people in fayetteville treated my William well. Thank you fayetteville, and shame on you Denver."
Cons: "When we got to Denver there was no one to help William off the plane. We even called ahead of time to make sure someone would be there with a wheelchair. The captain of the plane had to help him off the plane. It was so sad. William was so embarrassed. When it was time to board still no wheelchair. He had to struggle to get back on."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and efficient. The entertainment selections were diverse. The seating was adequate for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The check-in process took 50 minutes at the counter as the staff told me that I needed a visa for China (transit) while that info was incorrect. I had to deal with online customer service while the person at the counter couldn’t help. It finally took 3 people at the counter to send me away. Once on the plane for a 14+ hour flight, I couldn’t use the bathrooms freely as they were filthy. The staff obviously didn’t maintain the bathrooms during the entire flight. The food served made me wish that I had bought take-out food for 3-meals prior to my boarding. the quantity of food was inadequate for the long flight as well. 1 extra snack would have been appreciated. I will likely book my future trans-Pacific flights with another airline."
Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"
Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."
Pros: "Can keep electronic devices on in flight mode. Had power outlets, very nice!"
Cons: "Boading horrible mess. A second flight was boarding using same audio system. And no elite flyer pre boading in SFO"
Pros: "The quick flight."
Cons: "The crew. It was obvious she does not like her job. She seemed as if the people are an inconvenience and everything was so repetishous."
Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"
Pros: "Flight left and landed on time. In flight entertainment worked."
Cons: "In flight food made me sick later in the flight."

Cons: "Everything was trerrible on this flight! We were delayed from our first connecting flight out to SF to LA and we're put on a different flight connecting to Houston to get us home sooner. We were told by the gentleman at the check in that our correct boarding passes with our seats sitting all together would be given to us at the boarding desk. That was the biggest mistake ever to take this flight because we were then delayed 3 more hrs! Not only that but when I approached the next gentleman at the boarding desk in Houston he was super rude! He was yelling at me when I told them that "they in Dallas,the worker at the check in" told me to get my boarding passes in Houston. He kept yelling saying "there was nothing he could do that he could do that he didn't know who THEY were but that I was talking to him now and that's why he is saying" I tried explaining to him that I just wanted to make sure I got in the right flight home because this is what I was told to do by the employee in Dallas. Not only that but our connecting flight to Houston was horrible! The flight attendant (the male) was very very rude!!! He also was yelling at my niece and nephew when we were trying to put the carry on bags in the compartment. And telling us we could have anything underneath the seat when clearly we could have our personal item underneath. Overall we had the worst experience with United and will never again fly with them! I understand delays may happen but there's no need for the employees to be so rude. so much for their customers service!"
Cons: "All of the restaurants in the airport have changed to this "high-end" bistros. No fast food anywhere except the premade wraps and stuff at the kiosks. If you need food fast don't try to sit down and eat. My sandwich took 30 minutes to come out. Food was ok."
Cons: "I don't like this trip at all, when my mom arrive to make her check on they charge her 25 dolares for her firs baggage, when it was always free, it is not about he money it is about they didn't tell when you buy the ticket and she is 70 years old, she just have with her the necessary thats why I pay for her trip"
