It was excellent - the flight attendants were great and it was extremely comfortable. Would fly with you again anytime.
Cons: "I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings."
Pros: "Fantastic crew members who were very helpful with our infant."
Cons: "The dim sums could be changed for something else."
Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"
Pros: "Crew were super helpful. Have flown with other airlines, but have to say Qantas crews are very professional and helpful. They go that extra mile."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. The entertainment options were excellent. The food and drink options were pretty good."
Cons: "Better power options (universal plugs/power)"
Pros: "Crew always competent & professional"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The crew members were very helpful and the seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "I almost missed my return flight. It was a 9:40pm flight but the lady at the counter said that because i bought my ticket early, the flight time changed to 8:40pm because of time change. I think that needs to be factored in when selling tickets don't surprise customers."
Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfy seats. Fresh fruit was great!"
Cons: "Best flight ever all time"
Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"
Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Everything was barely adequate. All the flights on this trip was substandard. Planes seemed old and dirty. Really disappointed."
Cons: "Barely made the connection."
Pros: "all automatic check in without any stress"
Cons: "service is prefunctory without heart"
Pros: "All of the staff are friendly and helpful and is a good flight."
Cons: "It was raining and I don't like to fly in the rain especially landing."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Direct flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Good price, on sale."
Cons: "Leg room okay unless person in front puts there seat back and then it is almost impossible to be comfortable, even if you put your seat back. Food distribution is done in mysterious ways. Movies were the same coming and going even though it was more than a month between flights."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "Punctual flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The iPads for the entertainment system were cumbersome. Initially they didn't work for the whole cabin and the FAs had to reboot the system. They were also finnicky to operate. Also, needing to stow them for take-off and landing was a bit cumbersome. It would be much better to use the traditional fixed screens."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Very smooth, made it alive."
Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"
Pros: "Friendly and easy"
Cons: "I found the seat really uncomfortable. My back was hurting well before the end of the flight."
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"
Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"
Pros: "The crew we're wonderful and very attentive."
Cons: "For being one of the longest flights in the world, there is little in the way if accommodations to make it any easier. The food was less than desirable and the seats not nearly as comfortable as they should be."
Pros: "Fine, but completely unmemorable."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, good food, great entertainment- a slick operation was very slick. Not like the old days"
Pros: "It was the day before Christmas and all the crew were friendly and happy to be at work (of service) from check in to cabin crew. Just lovely thank you."
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Pros: "I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage."
Pros: "It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I'm satisfied"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "First of all, they gave my boyfriend and me separate seats when I checked in online. I called and they said I had to sort it out when we arrived at the airport and they'd leave a note for staff. But when we got to the airport we were told they couldn't do anything because they can't move assigned seats even if the person hadn't checked in yet. Thankfully they managed to find us new seats at the gate. The gate was a bit ridiculous. It was at the far end of the airport and we had to take a decent bus ride to get to the plane. Once we all piled out of the buses, they still were t ready to board so we all had to wait in a line. The plane ended up leaving about an hour and a half late due to the location of the gate and the slow boarding process. Also, we checked in online but there was no expedient bag drop line for people already checked in, so we had to wait in a very long line to drop off our bags."
Pros: "Not many people on plane. Excellent food & staff couldn't do enough for you."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 2 hours with little information as to what the Elat was for. Seat mechanisms in premium economy not working effectively. Water dripping from above as plane started. Things the planes need a good overhaul!"
Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."
Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"
Pros: "Extraordinary crew energy, plenty of food."
Cons: "Ran a bit late and boarding queue was unusually chaotic."
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Pros: "The crew was always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The kind chap behind me who insisted he had to bounce my seat every time he made contact with the entertainment screen. All night long. In hindsight, I should have asked to be moved."
Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"
Pros: "The service on flight was excellent. Attendants were very helpful and professional. I was pleasantly surprised with the food, especially for an international flight. They were also very helpful with seating when it came to putting me and my partner next to each other and in seats with extra legroom (we did pay for it so I guess it was expected)"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone was HORRIBLE! I waited almost 2 hours on the phone and got NOTHING accomplished! Purchased my seats online, then got a notification saying it didn't go through. Called to fix the issue, but the man on the phone put me on hold for almost an hour! Only to accidentally put my partner and I in different rows. When I complained at the lack of professionalism from him over the phone, he offered some sort of compensation. When I agreed, he transferred me to his supervisor who said they do not compensate in any form! So why offer it then?! I then called the reservation department like I was told to, and they said they would look into the issue and call me back. This was about a month or two before my flight, and even though it's been a week after my flight, I have yet to get that call I was promised (nor the compensation). WORST PHONE CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED! As for the flight, my only complaints are the messy boarding process and the uncomfortable seats in economy. Although you can't really expect more from old planes such as these."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Crew service."
Cons: "Seating place."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "My gates changed at Sydney abruptly and some of the ones checking flights through at gate 1c were rude as the Tv screens said my flight was boarding when it wasnt."
Overall the flight was okay. My problem was with the tepareture inside the aircraft. I was freezing entire trip.
Just one bad / lazy crew member ruined the experience… she struck my knee with the cart while I was sleeping and kept rolling about without any acknowledgment or apology. I get that you may be tired of your job, but I doubt that kind of blasé behavior would fly in any service industry.
Delayed over 6 hours for a mechanical issue. They had to fly mechanics in to fix the problem because there are none in Aspen. I feel like we should all get half off when this happens. Ridiculous.
Pros: "Newer plane with slightly more room"
Cons: "No more comments!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Everything was satisfactory"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Cons: "More room I pay for main cabin It feels it was just the regular"
Pros: "The attendant for my area was amazing. I was in the back of the plane and he was friendly. He helped me look for my power cord. He is an outstanding member of your team!"
Cons: "Nope, this was a great flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "4.5 hour flight to international destination and no meal provided. As usual, if you want a snack pay more. Slow chaotic boarding."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not sitting on the runway for 2 hours"
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight"
Cons: "Delayed 43 minutes"
Cons: "Jammed plane. At origin we were asked to check carry on at the gate to save overhead space. Bags never made the plane. We had our stubs but when we arrived at destination or at layover none was able to help. Bag tags had been removed at origin and bags were opened to determine who they belonged to. Plus wheelchair had armrest broken off."
Cons: "same as above. Was not on this flight"
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Pros: "Landing in my city"
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Pros: "Liked the plane and the entretenimiento was good the crew was a little rude"
Cons: "Crew was a little rude when they offering the cards I wanted one and the guy just said you don’t leave in the USA right ? So is USA residents only, Am sure there are several ways explained this without being as rude as he was"
Cons: "When we arrived at the Aspen airport, American Airlines was having a complete breakdown checking-in passengers for our flight. Some waited 2.5 hours to check a bag -- at an airport with very few flights and small planes. Clearly there was no management onsite – or that management was completely inept. AA agents on the ground simply did not prioritize passengers trying to make flights, nor did they ask flyers without urgent issues if they could step aside. Even worse, they spent 1.5 hours helping one customer – when that customer simply could have gone online or called reservations to get the appropriate assistance. Honestly, I personally stepped in to do what your personnel should have been trained to do: show empathy to calm passengers, ask one irate man to have some sympathy for those behind him in line, and finally, prioritize the people trying to check bags for the 2pm flight ahead of others. AA personnel only engaged the irate customer and threatened to call security when he pulled out his camera phone – it simply inflamed an already bad situation."
Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."
Pros: "Staff did good jobn"
Cons: "No movie screens on overseas flight. I called day before departure and they couldn’t even tell me yes or no on that question."
Pros: "Best fligh I had in some time. Left on time, arrived early very attentitive crew (with smiles as they worked through the rear cabin - wish I had their names to give recognition for/to). Food rating should have had a ‘NA’ as I nor partner did not consume any food."
Cons: "Can’t think of one thing - unless a flying saucer could have delivered me like in about 5 minutes to Cabo! Ok - maybe one thing: charging for a checked bag on international flight seems rediculous (you asked)."
Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"
Pros: "Made it home in one piece"
Cons: "Business Seat power / entertainment system went out with about 2.5 hours to go. Crew didn't seem surprised and they were pretty relaxed about it. Every time I asked about status during the first hour or so after it was out they said they were rebooting system but nothing happened. Finally gave up on it. Was the "deconstructed burrito" supposed to be served cold/frozen? Warm or at room temp. would have worked better Luggage took good hour before it started unloading"
Pros: "The plane itself was comfortable and there was ample storage for bags. The food was also fine."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a bit cold and distant, and the boarding service was unclear -- they didn't announce groups! We all had to guess when to line up so we were surprised when it was time to board."
Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Pros: "I cannot comment because the total journey was without food."
Cons: "The crew is so rude that I was asked to remove the meat and eat the remaining. Is there no value for Veg eaters in American Airlines."
Pros: "The new clean plane. The pilot and crew were great."
Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."
Pros: "American Airlines was great!"
Cons: "Finnair changed my flight to American Airlines (which I don't mind) but never notified me and made me go through hoops to get the changed record indicator."
Pros: "1. Heathrow - transit very professional 2. Heathrow - Philly - flight AA 734 was excellent. 3. I like the AA concept of making fliers pay for hard drinks."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Nothing unexpected."
Cons: "Lax arrival delayed"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Our first flight had an hour and a half delay. Missed our connecting flight. Had to wait two hours for a later flight that was then delayed another hour and a half. Absolutely horrific and inconvenient."
Cons: "COULDN'T GET ON THE SECOND LEG BECAUSE DIDN'T MAKE THE FIRST LEG"
Pros: "New plane, big TV screens at each chair, got a nice emergency row seat."
Cons: "Ground delayed for two hours, somewhat uncomfortable seat, one of our "emergency row" seats we paid for wasn't actually an emergency row."
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Aircraft is small, boarding is a mad dash to the plane"
Pros: "The entire plane crew to the ground crew did their best with a situation that was out of their control. The luggage door would not close, so we had an apps 4 hour delay"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Price was right. Crew very nice, bi-lingual and helpful. Cabin clean. Magazine very informative and good quality. Would choose Avianca again."
Cons: "Power cord plug-ins for cell phone in passenger lounge were limited. Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front."
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."
Pros: "Pilot announced a change in time."
Cons: "Paying for my plane ticket broke college kid..."
Cons: "American canceled my original itinerary on direct flight to Los Angeles and put me on a flight to Dallas, Dallas to LA, and charged me for the change. After 8 hour delay at airport (boarding plane, on the runway) they turned us around and flight was delayed to the next day. I luckily got a direct on United and will avoid American at all costs."
Pros: "Tv in front of every seat, how far the seats reclined."
Great crew, smooth flight. 30 minute delay on the tarmac with no status updates or information from captain. However, that was the only negative on the trip.
Food could have been better. Breakfast was great though
I booked seats together but when I checked in we were on the opposite sides of the plane.
Cons: "Food and rough flight"
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Cons: "Probably nothing"
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Pros: "I liked the lounge."
Cons: "The boarding process could've been better (no excess of gate changes, overbooking the flight, and kicking people out of their seats). Additionally, the food on board could've been better. My chicken was not chicken and lastly the airline's hard product could've been better, no IFE is a big no-no."
Cons: "Wifi did not work well."
Pros: "Check in and departure very quick, efficient and professional.... very intuitive and helpful when observing that customer is in need"
Cons: "From a customer service standpoint, I Would lower or not charge business or first class rates on a jet in which the seats for the above mentioned clearly have no physical distinction from those in economy class. Just a thought."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "United is consistently late and unhelpful with addressing travel delays. The first leg of my flight was delayed which would have caused me to miss my connection. United staff could not have been less helpful. In the future, I will try to avoid flying United wherever possible."
Cons: "Pilot didn’t show up, we waited 2.5 hours for him."
Pros: "Non stop flight. The crew went out of their way to help us enjoy the flight. Food was available during most of the flight. The crew was friendly and enjoyed helping us get to our vacation"
Cons: "The entertainment system. I started watching a movie but couldn’t finish. Once the movie stoped I could not restart it."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours. When I was at the gate having the rest of my flights updated, the agent at the counter failed to properly transfer my bags to my connecting flights and as a solution requested that I speak to the Customer Service agent in Chicago to have my bags rerouted. That's where the unpleasant experience continues..."
Cons: "My flight was rescheduled, so I ended up waiting about a 12 hour delay in Germany"
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flight was on time and fantastic!"
Cons: "They tried to keep changing it on us!!!"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "extremely cramped, overcrowded"
Pros: "I am only 5'4" but the seat in front of me was broken. I had NO leg room. If you are going to squeeze your passengers in like sardines, the very least that you could do is make sure what little room you have left us isn't compromised by faulty equipment."
Cons: "No snack, one cup of beverage and no movies without paying."
Pros: "the crew was great, flight was not overcrowded - smooth sailing the entire flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "My flight from Las Vegas to San Fran was scheduled for 0756. Everyone boarded the aircraft the we were pushed on to the tarmac and sat for 1 hr. Normally this wouldn't be a huge issue, but I had a connecting international flight which I missed boarding for. Consequently, I had to spend the night in San Fran which was not compensated by the airline, and I was forced to miss a business rendezvous I had arranged."
Cons: "I couldn't believe they did not have no tv or some type of food for 6 hour flight"
Cons: "No outlets or entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing really. I'm glad Delta, Virgin, and Southwest have direct flies now so I don't have to deal with the worst airline in the history of humanity,"
Cons: "The worst support and irresponsible system canceling my seat and no support"
Pros: "Noisy intrusive spoiled crying screaming kids kicking seats shaking rattles and crew was helpless"
Pros: "I was concerned about my carry on !I the lady at the counter told me I will be fine,and let me preboard ! This helped me with my anxiety !! Flight was delayed , waiting for other passengers! we were informed in a timely manner!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We weren't happy about not being able to pick our seats before hand. Very frustrating not knowing if we had sets or not when checking in at the airport."
Pros: "Non stop to Cabo"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and leg room. $200 fee each way fro surfboards. Lost the surfboards on the way home."
Pros: "It was in time. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "It was crowded."
Cons: "Lost my bag, checked it in 1.5 hours before flight"
Pros: "I liked that we made it to Cabo in a timely fashion"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to download an app to get free wifi."
Pros: "pleasant staff at terminal"
Cons: "notified at absolute last minute that flight was canceled with no weather related cause. Airline knew ahead of time as aircraft did not arrive. poor communication overall."
Pros: "The price was very reasonable. It was convenient. Love flying on the smaller planes."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled twice. United lied about luggage. Had to purchase toiletries and hotel room."
Cons: "United cancelled my flight. Terrible customer service"
Pros: "Boarding. Took off early and landed early"
Cons: "Everything else. Seats were uncomfortable. One crew member smelled of some nasty perfume that burned my eyes and nose when she bumped her way down the aisle. Ground crew was rude at check in. Mischarged me for baggage. No entertainment on my ipad. Noisy."
Pros: "Nice and smooth ride"
Cons: "All was great!!"
Pros: "Great in flight service. On time. Easy upgrades using United mobile app."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "On LAX tarmac for 40 min. Food awful"
Pros: "Plane was a little roomier than the A230"
Cons: "No audio or v ideo on almost 5 hours flight to Phoenix. Plane was full and seats very tight on A230. The return flight to Newark was no better. Tight connection thru Houston. DIRECT TV did not work on the 737800. Many of us had connecting flights, flight attendants should have announced that people who without connecting flights to remain in seats while those of us with connections deplanned. Seat did not recline"
Pros: "You have to pay for TV which is wrong and the snacks are horrible. Need to put better entertainment together and better food to paying customers not just to your first class members everyone should be treated special because all of our money pays for the company to stay a float"
Cons: "Food, entertainment and baggage claim"
Pros: "Quick boarding, the crew was great, arrived early"
Cons: "The wifi was inconsistent"
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."
Cons: "United is a poor carrier, there's nothing more to say. I struggled with my check in (I had just had a spine procedure done 48 hrs prior).... and by the time I got help from an agent it was 7:03 am, so... They wouldn't give me a boarding pass for my 8 am flight. Add to that an extremely rude ticket agent who couldn't care less about helping me, and almost seemed to enjoy my predicament, and that sums up my experience with this airline. I will never fly with them again, that's for sure; there's so many other airlines that actually care about their customers, this is not one of them."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding group."
Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
