Pros: "crew was nice, seating was fine."
Cons: "food was not great"
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to get onto the TSA Precheck program and the agent at check-in (in the biz line) started scolding me for not meeting the economy baggage allowance (only 1 small 7kg carry on), but everything else was perfect. Best biz class flight I’ve ever had, mostly because of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice, food was good, movie choice was great"
Cons: "Would have liked a more comfortable seat. Couldn’t sleep well"
Cons: "economy has NO room, couldnt bend down to get anything out of my bag below the seat unless my face was in the lap of the person next to me"

Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew made us laugh and our flight flew by. Great entertainment options and the food service was delicious."
Pros: "The crew was super courteous and nice."
Cons: "Nice newer aircraft and the crew goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable."
Cons: "We were not told that we had to buy meals and drinks ahead of time?! We had no food for an 8 hour flight and couldn't even buy a soft drink?! We were on an outdated plane leased plane from EVA Air and there were maybe 10 movies to choose from? Also, my reading light was broken. Not the level of care that I've come to know from Air NZ and really disappointed."
Pros: "777 with really comfortable economy class seating, excellent selection of on-board entertainment, convenient A/C power at each seat and very friendly cabin crew made the trip a pleasure."
Cons: "No in-flight wi-fi at any price. I took it for granted they'd have it, probably should have checked first and downloaded what I needed ahead of time."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above. Along with attmpeting to get boarding passes in LAX staff could not do in IAD was unpleasant as lady kept asking for boarding passes then said she needs a print of the intineray"
Cons: "That is didn’t happen until the next day"
Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "Crew was professional and very friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic. The seats were even comfortable and we were in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything exceeded expectations."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Air New Zealand plane was newer and crew was helpful and gracious. Connection to Glasgow was a disaster mostly caused by our airline changing to British Airways to Glasgow. Because our LAX yo LHR flight arrived a bit late, we missed our flight to GLA and had to wait nine hours to get seats on another flight from LHR to GLA. No accomodations were made for us. We had to manage nine hours in LHR with a 4 year-old -- we had no other choice."
Cons: "Will never again fly Air New Zealand from LAX to GLA -- an annual route for us as we have family in Scotland."
Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Pros: "Crew helpful, congenial."
Cons: "Anticipated more legroom based on seat chart diagram."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "For some unknown reason, I can not lower my seat when I wanted to get some sleep. As the air plane took off at 11:55pm, I was really sleep. After 10 minutes of maneuver, I decided to ask a flight attendant to help me figure out what happened to my seat. I pressed the button asking for attendant and waited for 5 minutes, no response. So I pressed the button again. IT showed that I had already pressed the button. So I kept waiting. But then no one ever came for me the 9 hours until it was time for the meal before getting off. Sitting straight sleeping was a really terrible experience!"
Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."
Pros: "Lost our baggage twice!"
Pros: "Large screen with good choice of movies etc"
Cons: "As they have 3-4-3 seating on their 777 (BA and Delta have 3-3-3) the seats are very narrow to make room for the extra seat in school row"
Cons: "It is a toss up which airline has more uncomfortable seats, you or United. Leg room is not great and some padding would be nice."
Pros: "The plane was probably the best for international flight I have ever taken. More to the point the seat was so comfortable I was actually able to sleep, The seat also many great features (outlets to charge electronics, little storage area, and entertainment screen)"
Cons: "The check in (totally self serve) was awful. It was confusing not user friendly. US airlines have kiosks to print boarding passes. This did too but missed some steps, ie printing luggage tags which you needed to print yourself and attach and place on a conveyor belt. The airlines did not have enough help to guide people through this process."
Cons: "Traveled as a family of 6 but our special meal requests--confirmed by phone prior to outbound journey--were not available, making the long journey very difficult. They crew tried to help and said they would follow up."
Pros: "Did get noticed that the flight was cancelled and appreciate keeping me informed on that."
Pros: "I really like Air Newzealand!"
Cons: "Way exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "After 1 hour, still sitting on the tarmac waiting to get to our gate."
Cons: "We were seated near the back of the airplane. The heater came on midway of the flight, by the time we landed, it was difficult to breathe because it was so hot. The flight attendant all relocated from the back of aircraft to the front aircraft where it was cooler, I assume. I was worried for my son."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The on-board entertainment was excellent and the seats were actually comfortable. I was provided the option to use any restroom by the crew without regard to my seating location."

Pros: "I have used Delta long time. Used to be really bad. Today. Good good."
Cons: "Free beer"
Pros: "I reached y destination."
Cons: "One flight attendant yelled at me for switching seats, even though I had asked permission to move seats. Another flight attendant clumsily kicked me when leaning over to serve another passenger. After living in Japan, it's pretty rough to see the low bar of American customer service."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful seats and movie were awesome!!!"
Pros: "Loved the plane, people and timeliness"

Pros: "Getting offered a stipend to change flights - getting my preferred rental car"

Cons: "Seat didnt recline and very tight between passenger seats"
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin.

Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."
Pros: "Good landing, great service."
Pros: "The service was good, employees friendly and helpful. The plane was surprisingly nice for such a short flight."
Pros: "First Delta experience in many years. Overall positive but not spectacular. A350 has suite doors, nice and private."
Cons: "Crew is not flexible with on-demand dining. Not sure if this was this specific crew member who couldn't be bothered or if Delta is behind other long haul airlines on this. Lay flat business class seat on A350 are very firm. a mattress pad would have made the flight much more comfortable."
Pros: "love that Delta is now giving out Kind bars. Thanks!"
Pros: "Charging stations, roomy seats"
Cons: "One attendant was a bit snarky."
Pros: "Flying and going fast, plus the people are kool too."

Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Despite a delay, we arrived in White Plains on or close to schedule."
Cons: "The gate agent just kept going on and on about trying to make up the time from a delay (18 minutes ...hardly world ending). The lead flight attendant wasn’t much better"
Pros: "Seat back movies Staff was attentive and patient with my sick teen daughter."
Cons: "Old plane with no seat back entertainment on one leg of journey."
Pros: "Delta plane was renovated for the entertainment and seat comfort. This was the first time I didn't have to recline the seat because the normal incline felt fine. Legroom was good also. Every seat had a screen and free media to choose from. Very impressed. Great job Delta!"
Cons: "There was wifi onboard and it was advertised that we could connect and use iMessage, whatsApp and Facebook messenger free of charge but I wasn't able to do so on this flight. I didn't ask about it but this would be an excellent amenity to keep in touch with the people on the ground"
Pros: "Hey, domestic U.S. flights aren't all bad! I was pleasantly surprised by the kind service and amenities on this Delta flight. There's a plethora of free movies to watch, and the crew continually checked on us to make sure we were hydrated. I think Delta may become my new prefered carrier for domestic flights."

Pros: "Staff was very good"
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "The entertainment monitors were SUPER laggy with response. Image quality wasn't great."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and efficient! Flight was fairly on time"
Cons: "Selection of movies was not the best I've experienced"
Pros: "There was nothing to like."
Cons: "The time to catch the next flight at Washington DC and Frankfert was too short. Walked about a mile and half between two gates. Request to change the time slot"

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "Overall, a good flight, slightly earlier than schedule, well informed by the pilot"
Cons: "The food was not up to par for Lufthansa (plane food). The choice was barbecue chicken or vegetarian pizza. I asked for vegetarian pizza. Not sure what I had, as it did not taste like BBQ chicken, and it did not look like the food my neighbor had (which looked like 2 mini pizzas). I chose not to complain about my food. It appeared passengers were keeping the cabin crew very busy. By taste, I could not tell what it was and I could only eat half. Not usual for Lufthansa food."
Pros: "service, on time,efficient boarding, no hassles"
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."
Cons: "The flight did not take off from Dusseldorf until AFTER we were scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt. There were no updates from the flight crew on the delay or on our connecting flight."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Pros: "The crew was great. There was a nice amount of personal space. The movie and music selection was quite good. The food was decent for flight food."
Pros: "Crew. Meal good too."
Cons: "Bus rides to aircraft at Frankfurt"
Pros: "Flight and attention"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "I very much enjoyed my flight from LA to Munich. The flight crew were awesome and the airplane was impeccably clean and quiet. The flight was so nice I consider it as part of the vacation! I highly recommend flying Luftansa :-)"
Cons: "Our original flight, one day earlier, was canceled 10 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "Great service. Polite, multilingual staff. Food is quite good. Super ckean orderly plane."
Cons: "Seat size and spacing is at an absolute minimum level even for small people."
Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airlines"
Cons: "I find that bigger airplanes are more organized than the small ones."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food, kids friendly"
Pros: "A very nice flight overall. Plane left 40 minutes late to wait for other connecting flights but caused me to miss my connection later that day. Was compensated with hotel room and dinner."
Cons: "Amount of time waiting for crew to address my call button request. Almost 20 minutes waiting for flight attendant to respond."
Pros: "I found the seats roomy - plenty of leg room. They were very comfortable in the way they leaned back. The food was very good, even though the meal was a simple lunch. The plane was very clean and bright."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like. In fact, I felt: "This is the way flying aught to be.""
Cons: "Waste 3 hours in connecting flight."
Pros: "We were not cramped like US domestic flights. Bathrooms were kept cleaner."
Pros: "having the TV with lots of choices"
Cons: "There were screaming ( not just crying...but SCREAMING at a shrill pitch) for the entire 10 hour flight. I was never so ready to get off of a plane in my life. The staff tried to appease the many different situations as best they could, but they got wore out before the end of the the flight. There were people not sitting in their assigned seats, so mealtime was totally boggled and some got fed a full hour before the rest us is on the tail end of the serving. The last meal ( after I FINALLY got food, we had turbulence, so they stopped serving drinks to go with the meal, and no one ever came back and continued where they left off, so I ate my meal without a drink. I don't blame the airline because it was the many children in that section that made it absolutely miserable for everyone on board, but it was the worst flight I have ever taken...hands down."
Pros: "on time, many toilet rooms available. not too much noises from other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding system was quite chaotic and unclear. Food was horrible. Premium Economy Class seat was just similar to economy class. Sound system with provided earphones don't work well."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "WiFi, entertainment and USB charging was good."
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle during the boarding process. No children's amenities as advertised. Children's meal was so-so. Adult meals had chocolate included, which children's meal did not have. Seriously?! The snack provided was all inclusive for adults and children and was way too spicy for my 6-year-old."
Pros: "Our flight from Frankfort to Munich was late. Luftansa sent a representative to our flight to make sure we and others from our flight got on to the flight to Charlotte. How awesome! Plane needs more leg room."
Cons: "A strike caused us to have to shorten our vacation and we lost the money on all hotels and tours. The treatment by staff was unpleasant. I hope the other 350,000 affected people were treated with more courtesy."
Cons: "Person in front of my reclined while I was eating"
Cons: "No entertainment Slow boarding"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options."
Pros: "Great service and comfortable bed for sleeping in business class"

Cons: "The ambience of the aircraft and the pleasant cabin crew. They treated you with absolute courtesy and were always at your service."
Pros: "Food is excellent as always,could offer a little more alcoholic beverages."
Cons: "Lost my Baggage for 2 days."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Forget the bottom line and make more leg room in economy so passengers have a good experience, families with young children should all be stuck together! I had the pleasure of having my seat kicked half the flight by a small child whose mother did not seem to notice or care. Food was not good! And airplane food can be good, just ask Quantas Airlines."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Plane was smelly and cramped for space. Air vents did not work."
Pros: "The food tasted really good and especially the bread was much more appealing than on our previous flight. The flight attendants were very efficient and attentive. I liked that they asked the person in front of me to put his seat up during the meal time. That helped me eat more comfortably. Entertainment options were extensive."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and was tedious. It took forever because there was not an orderly line and just a jumble of people. We had to show our passports 3 different times between check in and boarding. People had put their passports away, then had to get them out again at the gate. That slowed everything down to a crawl. Our party was not accommodated when we asked for seats together. My husband and I were separated and we were separated from our kids. The ground crew did not seem to care. Take off was delayed, but the captain never told us why. The guy in front of me reclined his seat the whole time. I felt like a sardine in a can. So uncomfortable!"
Cons: "The seats are more and more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
Pros: "Meal/drink service excellent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding process confusing as groups 3-6 all lined up together. No air at seats."
Pros: "Great crew support & well above the typical airline food."
Cons: "USB charging ports would been nice"
Cons: "The flight was late arriving, so consequently we had to pay a taxi to hotel, as shuttle had finished for the night. Air Canada staff let people know 10 mins prior to boarding that we needed the app to view movies in-flight. Most people couldn't download quick enough, & airport Wifi was not optimal"
Pros: "One flight attendant in particular. Wish I knew her name to commend her. Also, had a bassinet for my grandson!! Frequent beverages offered, especially water. Allowed to move seats once in the air!! Able to help my daughter with her baby. Chicken dish was actually really good."
Cons: "No movie screens at all!? Odd; especially for an International flight. Check bathroom paper supplies more frequently. Ran out of paper towels two bathrooms. No fault of yours, but the Venice airport was a nightmare. I am use to airports in the US and was shocked how long the line was to get through to our gate. We couldn’t even find the end because it wrapped around like an “S”. Surprised we had to print our boarding pass (but was never asked for it); couldn’t do a mobile boarding pass."
Pros: "Smooth from beginning to end, from checking bags, boarding and exiting. The crew was very pleasant and professional and I liked the option to watch movies on the trip"
Cons: "I paid for wifi and it didn't really work"
Pros: "Air Canada Rouge is a great airline. Would 100% fly again and will try to fly every time with Air Canada."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Pros: "It made it to Athens smoothly & on time."
Cons: "There was no movies available to watch. Flight attendant said we need the app to watch movies however there wasn't enough time to download the app before the flight took off to download it in time."
Pros: "Nothing stands out!"
Cons: "I don't like the idea of paying for a checked bag. I have been spoiled by Southwest. The crew appeared to be in a big hurry with their service and I received the smallest beverage cup. It looked more like a "shot glass" with no refills. Would have been better off to cancel this service. I used to be a big fan of Air Canada. No more! They have really changed for the worse."
Pros: "Air Canada's business seat is one of the best out there, and the crew on this flight was super friendly. Extra props to the service director, Joseph."
Cons: "Boarding was slow for business class joining after zone 2 announced. Despite being parked at a gate with two jetbridges, only one was used. AC could use a refresh on its entertainment selection - hasn't changed much over the summer."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."
Cons: "Have to pay for entertainment on such a long flight. Crew was very rude"
Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."
Pros: "Excellent service, good food, business class on the 787 is very nice."
Cons: "Seats tight, very little leg room or room at all to move. Can't believe we now have to pay for a meal and to check our luggage! Male at departure gate in Palm Beach kept making announcement which could not be understood as he spoke very rapidly and unclear. Flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Pros: "Old plane, high changing fees. Air Canada sucks"
Pros: "Everything was good except late departure"
Cons: "Late flight, for almost two hours"
Pros: "The Air Canada staff in Austin was wonderful. The flights from Ottawa to Toronto and back were fine."
Cons: "Problems that were, to be sure, not entirely the airline's fault. The trip from Toronto to Austin was delayed because someone had taken the flight attendant's bag from the overhead. We had to wait until either the bag was recovered or a new flight attendant was brought in. On the return flight, the first officer had ruptured her eardrum, and the plane could not leave Austin until a new pilot was flown in from Toronto. It took hours for the airline to arrange for hotel rooms. The airline then offered vouchers when we arrived in Toronto, but their representative brought enough for only about 2/3 of the passengers."
Cons: "The flight was very cold, even though everyone in my row had their air vents closed."
Pros: "Nicely managed and well served."
Cons: "None. The food and entertainment were rated 3 stars as there wasn't any for this flight."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The attendants on the flight were very unprofessional - they laughed the entire time during our boarding and safety demo. They were more interested in talking to the ground crew outside then welcoming the guests on their flight."
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Free entertainment even though the flight was only three hours."
Cons: "Small, cramped plane with no free snacks."
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Pros: "They were on time and the flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats and the plane was just too small for such a long flight."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Cons: "Not sure if this is an Air Canada or a Toronto Pearson Airport issue, but the gate we flew out of was in a very small area with very limited seating. Long delay and no staff to assist or inform the passengers of the schedule delay. We will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "My bags were lost and no one would give me contact information for how to track them down. The only number I was give has not had anyone answer after I have called many times over the last several hours"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "In flight entertainment wasn't working on my seat."
Pros: "I liked flying in a small plane; with few people aboard; very uncomplicated."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane was very small; although clean there was a bad odor, not sure it was from a previous occupant, the water or something, but it was most unpleasant."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Cons: "Are you kidding? Nine and a half hours scrunched up in a seat with virtually no leg room? My wife and I are 71 yrs. old, and this was no picnic. (My wife's ankles were all swollen from the ridiculousness of this "arrangement." Seniors should be warned that that flying on such airplanes is not advised.)"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "My partner had injured his knee and it was quite swollen. When we phoned and also went to an AC agent at the airport, we were told there was nothing they could really do as far as leg room; Heathrow reps were kind enough to offer a wheelchair when we arrived. The frustrating part was when we were on the flight, there were multiple rows which only had 1 person seated. There did not seem to be any empathy, understanding or patience for our situation and it did not feel great to be treated with annoyance and disdain."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "Entertainment choices on this flight/with this plane were endless, and you didn't have to pay extra for them like you do with Condor, for instance. The seats were relatively comfortable, in comparison to the way you are packed into some planes these days. Particularly liked the headrests that were adjustable side to side. It helped in this particular case the flight wasn't completely full, and so I had the seat next to me free."
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about rules that I had not encountered before- being only in ticketed seat until at altitude (the flight was very empty), only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent, no headphones or electronic devices at all during final descent and landing."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Because of snowstorm, my original flight was cancelled. Air Canada put me on the following day's United flight which was also cancelled. Afterall, I arrived 24 hrs late. They couldn't control bad weather, I understand, What I don't get is both Air Canada and United put us on hold for nearly three hours. The wait was so bad we were using three phones. By the time we could reschedule our flights, we spent four hours on phone. United's attitude was worse than Air Canada. Hire more staff to take calls, for god's sake. Food is bad. The audio has no classic channel. The wait at YYZ was 6 and half hours. Too long."
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"

Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Pros: "Easy boarding for elderly slow passengers"
Cons: "Crowded seat space"
Cons: "Cramped, lost my bags for three days."
Pros: "I liked having multiple lines for each boarding group. I think it would make sense to board from back of plane to front. I think it would make it go quicker"
Cons: "Having to check my bag plane side."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delays. Courteous staff."
Pros: "Personnel is nice"
Cons: "There is no one to help guide you if you have questions. Basically if you need help, get in an unorganized line. Check-in is a free for all. Signs are not clear or prominent. TSA Pre-Check was closed at one part even though I was told it was open."
Pros: "Male flight attendant was friendly and relatable"
Cons: "Very rocky flight, female flight attendant was mocking male attendant, reading from the manual so I was hearing all the possible worst things that could happen and sanitary conditions of the bathrooms, very unpleasant. We also ran out of water so instead everyone had to wash their hands with the bottled water and sanitary wipes"
Pros: "The United Service was a VIP treatment for me. Im very happy with this airliner."
Cons: "I need to pay for the entertainment I know the movies have cost but the TV and Music was a sad moment for me thanks God I Have tetris on my cell."

Cons: "That united barely serves any snacks, need something besides that wafer that won't even make a dent in hunger."
Pros: "Piolet communication, safe smooth landing inspite of horible turbulence."
Cons: "4hr delay, late on serving snacks, small aircraft, no tv, no phone charge system in the seats like other airlines/planes has."
Pros: "Like the prompting with manage the fist travel (Austin-Houston)."
Cons: "The travel Austin-Houston only they serve wather! That's ridiculous. In the way Houston-Quito the fly assist not collaborate in the order of the passenger behind me. He's stay the travel continiusly standing and kick the seat. The people not turn off the cellphones and electronic equipments. The old mans passengers not respect the rules."
Pros: "I like having options to purchase snacks during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible. Very little overhead bin space available so many carry on's had to be checked. Leg room was worse than other airlines. Had 3 flights cancelled in a matter of 24 hours when other airlines were running flights at the same time. Needless to say - not a good first experience with United and won't be flying them again any time soon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Very disruptive passenger"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the flight attendant and crew was very kind and helpful."
Pros: "Can you imagine there's no movies or games during this 12-hour international flight? It's very hard and made the trip much more longer and so tired. I suggest the airline to do something to make the customers happy, such as to issue a free air ticket or a big coupon for my next trip."
Cons: "The Airplane was extremely cold!!! The seats were not comfortable"

Pros: "Not much you can say about a 30 minute flight."

Cons: "Sour attitude of one of the flight attendants. The age of attendants doesn't bother me, just when they are jaded and surly, especially on a transPacific flight."

Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Lose baggage"
Pros: "One of the legs of our flight was canceled due to weather. The staff at the desk was very helpful in getting us rebooked."
Cons: "Check-in staff was so unfriendly and unprofessional, I have decided to never fly United again. It also took almost 25 minutes on-hold to try and get a customer service rep on the phone and by that time I was going to be late for my flight and United would not refund my money even though it was their issue that was causing my delay. There are too many other airlines to have to deal with the rude people at the check-in area and the lack of customer support."
Pros: "Organization at boarding in sections"
Cons: "Delaying departure by waiting for standby customers to be assigned a seat - perhaps include those folks in one of the boarding sections and give first available seat in order of arrival"
