Cons: "Nothing could have been better beyond the signs at the gate."

Pros: "crew was very sweet"
Cons: "food and wine options were terrible"

Pros: "Staff were helpful, pleasant, and attentive. Really appreciated that due to the length of my layover in Doha, I was given a hotel room - which I hadn't asked for, and which Qatar Airlines personnel told me I might be able to get, and then arranged or me. That's excellent service!"
Cons: "I wish NO ONE's seat tipped back - space is already tight, and if everyone just stayed in their own space rather than tipping seats aback, everyone would have more room! Once the person in front has leaned their seat back, it's impossible to really use the tray, which is pretty frustrating."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Food was okay, seats were less so. Not enough leg room."

Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."
Cons: "Economy seats are way too tight, had severe problems with knee room when seat in front was reclined. A terrible passenger just forward of me had no regard to this issue and refused to be cooperative. Food was lukewarm at best and was on mildly appetizing in economy."

Pros: "crew amazing,"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."

Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Cons: "No"

Cons: "I really didn’t like hke the Internet is free for just one hour. And how I cannot make international calls using the doha’s airport wifi."

Pros: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."

Pros: "The movies, snacks, the crew. They were very friendly and helpful on board not the crew in the airport!!!"
Cons: "Space of the seat and the ground crews(aiports) how come their less friendly than the crew on board!"

Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."

Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"

Pros: "Good service best price, good food comfort I think is best airlines in word in my opinion"

Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "Staff worked fast to feed and water everyone."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."

Cons: "Great staffs and food service."

Pros: "It was actually on time."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight and crew"
Cons: "The plain was very old."

Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"

Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"

Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"

Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"

Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."

Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."
Cons: "Must include the latest films. I find the Hollywood films rather passe. Main courses not to my liking. The fish was overcooked and became very fluffy. Yes, fluffy is the word. Salmon was too salty. Asian food was not up to standard."

Pros: "The boarding process was simple, food was ok."
Cons: "What a terrible flight. There was absolutely no leg room. I'm 180cm but I imagine Qatar airlines have taller passengers. I understand they are trying to squeeze as much money out of their flights as possible but it was to the point of such severe discomfort that my right knee still hurts half a week later. The reason that it hurts so much is that there was a post through the right half of the leg room under my seat, which was already super limited to begin with. DO NOT GET A WINDOW SEAT, WHATEVER YOU DO. It was a 7 hour flight and I was SO MUCH PAIN. Horrific. The flight staff was rude. I will never fly Qatar again under ANY circumstances. I would rather travel months by boat, or even walk for years on end then go through that 7 hour experience. Qatar's cheapness lost them a customer!"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was friendly and attentive to passengers (I give them 4.5 stars). The seats are comfortable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"

Pros: "Very nice service"

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "I will fly Qatar again"

Cons: "No internet"

Pros: "Customer service won't answer the phone"
Cons: "Customer service could answer the phone"

Pros: "Crew was amazing .. had two seats for myself"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "It’s a crowded plane with tiny seats. The passengers in my row who had not been able to bathe did not make the 5 hours go by quickly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"

Pros: "Very short flight so not much to comment."
Cons: "Not that I didn’t like, but there was no entertainment and no beverage on this flight. Maybe add a “N/A” as an option in the survey. Flight was delayed, but we were kept updated."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and courteous. It was comfortable for a 12 hour journey in a plane. What a difference from their regional staff and service."
Cons: "The food was of course something to be desired."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 1.7 hours."

Cons: "Bathrooms got very messy."

Pros: "Liked the entertainment system and the fact that none of my luggage was lost on this trip. (Air Canada is a real pain to deal with on lost luggage.) Vegetarian meal was not gourmet, but good."
Cons: "Arrived late so next flight had to be rebooked. They did give us a food ticket though. I would give it an overall good rating (instead of okay) if it had not arrived late."

Pros: "We had experienced two schedule changes during the last trip. First, our first outbound leg was canceled , and second, our first inbound flight was late. CA customer service was helpful in both cases. We were given alternatives and accommodations . It's upsetting to know we had to make unfortunate changes before/during our trip, it's comforting to know that CA is there to help."
Cons: "Last minute schedule change"

Cons: "Everything was sub-par, the food, entertainment, the crew responsiveness, I asked for two drinks and was told that I could only get one at a time... really? The crew was multilingual, which was great, but also very annoying to have to listen to announcements in 5 different languages. They could use media with standardized messaging and a choice of an appropriate language, but these would make too much sense I guess. This was the tightest coach I've ever flown in, the seat ergonomics was horrible."

Pros: "Modern planes, very comfy (Vancouver to Beijing), nice entertainment options, good food"
Cons: "super cranky flight attendants who looked and talked to us like we are idiots. Not just my feelings; the rest of my travel group of 7 agrees...."

Pros: "I was very pleased with the baggage claim team in Ottawa who took extra steps to ensure that a piece of my carry-on luggage that I forgot on the flight was returned to me safely and packaged with more care than I did for myself!"

Pros: "Quick services"
Cons: "Entertainer system overload twice - without move the key"

Cons: "I can't take the flight and I can't get my money back. It is horrible"

Pros: "Very nice flight"

Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."

Cons: "Bad service"

Pros: "This was not a Luftansa flight!! It was Air Canada Rouge which is a budget airline that doesnt compare to Luftansa"
Cons: "The fact that it said thia was a luftansa flight when in fact it qas not"

Pros: "Comfort, decent entertainment selection, crew was pleasant and professional, boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Food = bland mystery meat entree."

Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."

Pros: "Food service was good and staff was nice"
Cons: "Staff did not come often enough with water. Not as many snacks as I have gotten on Korean Airlines and Japan Airlines. Definitely better than American Airlines or United Airlines flights which are the worse example of how to provide excellent food and service. Short time allowance for flights connections since most flights from Chicago start off late. Look to carriers such as Luftansa, Jordan Air, Turkish Air as the right way to do things."

Cons: "No food options, only beverages. Checked luggage is extra. It's a shame we're constantly losing services with flights but the costs remain the same."

Cons: "Overall everything was great, but they lost our luggage going to our destination and coming back."

Pros: "Crew was fine, food was fine, entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, which prompted the agent in Beijing to change my connection in Vancouver to 7 hours later!!! However, when I arrived in Vancouver, I made it to the gate of my original connection hoping to get on anyway, but because the agent in Beijing changed my connection before I left, my original connection was full and I was stuck in Vancouver airport for 5-6 hours. Complete waste of my time and completely unnecessary."

Pros: "The gate personnel at LGA did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "Air Canada canceled this flight which was already delayed 2.5 hours and failed to notify any of us passengers who were waiting at the gate. We only found out because a passerby mentioned it."

Pros: "crew was friendly. thankfully the flight was not full, so most people (not me) were able to stretch out on multiple seats in the rear. Food was typical; keeps you alive but that is the best we can say."
Cons: "entertainment system offered very limited variety. I think the movies were picked by a 12 year old."

Pros: "Air Canada's seats are more comfortable. I didn't have that stiff and unbearable pain and numbness I experienced with other planes over the last 20 years."

Pros: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago). This blatant discrimination nearly caused me to be arrested and deported from China. It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."
Cons: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago).

It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "The on-board and Abbotsford-based crew acknowledged that we had all had a very long day. All thanked us for our patience."
Cons: "We were informed when we arrived at the gate that the flight was to be delayed by 8 hours because of mechanical problems. 8 hours! No offer was made to book us on a different flight. No one, at anyplace along the line actually apologized for asking us to wait around for 8+ hours when the flight was delayed. We did not even know what the mechanical problem was. When we finally were able to board the flight, the captain made a personal appearance in front of the cabin to tell us that he and his crew had been called at home to fly a broken plane. He briefly explained that there were no available planes to swap out and the repair required all day. Inexcusable! Our treatment did not measure up to the Canadian tradition of courtesy and politeness."

Cons: "Terrible attitude to a customer (not me). I asked for a US custom form and it took them an hour and two people to do that."

Cons: "I can't fly in Canada with my US visa... so I am rejected. I think I should get more advises on about that from Kayak. I feel weird for Kayak choose my flight from Vancouver to Toronto and then to Raleigh. But I feel it would be ok if the ticket is financial. But, I was rejected by Air Canada because of that...And I need to pay more than 7000 RMB for another flight( there is $250 change flight fee). I feel terrible honestly! Time and money are what important for me and at last I've got neither of them."

Cons: "Terrible Air Canada ground service in Beijing Airport. Very slow service cause I missed the fly. Very bad attitude when I asked to change fly time."

Pros: "People were nice wHen airline made them available to us. But business lounge, special services, and other services were not available in Toronto when we wanted them."
Cons: "Connecting flight was repeatedly delayed. Then finally cancelled because no crew was provided by the airline. Since this was only announced so late - after midnight - hotel rooms were no longer available we had to try to sleep on the floor in the departure hall. Maybe ok for 20 year old travelers. Not for 75 year olds like me who paid business class fare so as to hopefully avoid some of the rigors of travel. I managed to catch up on some sleep the next day in the business lounge while eating for my rescheduled connection. Still it has taken an additional period to physically recover from this experience."

Cons: "Barely any entertainment for the 11 hour flight because no one advised me to download their app to access their small selection. Also, first international flight that wanted to charge for beer (highest price I've seen)."

Cons: "Cannot watch movies in over 10 hours flight, rude service."

Pros: "professional crew members' services...."
Cons: "The food has room to improve...."

Pros: "Some good movies"
Cons: "Ran out of both dinner and breakfast options, for whatever was left."

Pros: "on time boarding & arrivial"

Pros: "I liked the newer plane and cloth seats with mild colors. The chargers were a nice accessory but sacrificed leg movability which leads us to the negatives --->"
Cons: "Wow, I know that business means remaining competitive and as such any and all cost cutting measures are taken along with profit increase measures but............... Wow, talk about being crammed in like a sardine. I'm a male of average height and usually this is a blessing because it feels as though all vehicles, amusement rides and doorways are custom made just for me with the exception of Air Canada planes. I have never in my 300+ number of flights ever felt so confined in any seat. The distance from my knee to the seat in front of me was a claustrophobic finger length at best. Getting up to use the restroom required the other passengers to get up, and I had to stand and walk across their seats to get in/out. Luckily the lady next to me was nice enough and the flight was pleasant overall, but I will certainly think twice before booking another Air Canada flight!!!"

Pros: "Air Canada does it all well. There is a strong sense that every piece o the process has been checked and double checked. Good value for money. Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "In economy, the seats are small. Sigh. And the breakfast sausage was white. But otherwise, all good."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Small seats, no legroom, mediocre food"

Pros: "Overall, it was a nice flight. The domestic and express flights had no food on offer (for free)..."
Cons: "Beyond the absurd 12 hour layover in Vancouver, upon my arrival in Atlanta, my luggage was lost. I'm still waiting on a call saying it was located."

Cons: "It was very cold!"

Cons: "2hrs delayed and no explanation the reason. So my arrival time in Toranto 2am instead of 10:45pm."

Pros: "Very good food. Great range of entertainment -- much better than United, which last year gave no selection for the long rides between Beijing and Chicago"
Cons: "Boarding process. We had four flights on Air Canada, and were put in the last boarding group on every one of them, which makes it hard to get overhead space. It seems statistically impossible for them to assign the worst boarding group to the same people every time, but they did it."

Pros: "There were 2 pilots- the female one was polite and informative. We took off on time and even landed a little earlier than planned."
Cons: "Very noisy flight on a small plane. The flight from Hartford to Toronto was cold and others noticed it as well. The windows are all blurry. The sound of the engine blocks out the safety announcements!! It's a joke that they even have them. There is no beverage served. And for all this wonderful service you pay an outrageous fee!!!! I felt like I was in the back of a donkey wagon..."

Pros: "Two bags plus a carry-on."

Pros: "Everything but the seats. The food was alright but better than most airlines. No issues with my luggage at all."
Cons: "The seats are quote awful if you are tall, like myself. I'm 6'3" and 4 hours into my 13 hour flight, I was regretting my decision not to pay the extra $100 for a seat with more leg room. My back hurt for 2-3 days after the flight, and I got up to move around every 3 hours or so."

Pros: "short time, smooth flight"

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Cons: "Couldn't make"

Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accomodating. What a great experience!!"

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"

Pros: "Makes such a difference with the crew is smiling and friendly. What a nice change from the overall attitude you normally get flying united."
Cons: "Entertainment system"

Cons: "The free in-flight wifi entertainment did not work. The cabin was too warm the whole flight. I was sweating in a Tshirt."

Pros: "Superb crew With lights dimmed steward found me and brought me a drink Just a mention about how I would like one during routine service I felt got special service but they probably do that for everyone Very nice Felt crew went out of their way to make sure all nerds taken care of!"
Cons: "Baggage claim in different terminal than where we landed No signage"

Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."

Pros: "No delay at all"

Pros: "I really love the customer service of wheel chair for my mom , he was super nice , could not believe that he took care of my mom untile her seat , amazing . His name was Brooks Vestal , I will never forget this flight"

Cons: "So crowded it was unbelievable. The seats are jammed together way too tight"

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"

Cons: "Sat on the plane for over an hour at the gate. Then it took another 30 minutes to taxi and take off. No food, drinks or restroom b"

Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "I do not like downloading an app to get entertainment. Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."

Pros: "They got us on this flight (the last one to SNA for the day) after we missed our original connecting flight due to delays on the Frankfurt to Houston flight."
Cons: "crowded"

Pros: "On Time!"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Delayed luggage"

Cons: "The pane was 2 hours delayed due tom problem at airport. While we sat on the plane for 2 hours in old uncomfortable seats (5pm - 7pm) we were not offered refreshments or snacks. When the flight finally took off and they got to us after 9pm, they had ran out of food. Lastly, this plan was made for short flights. No one should be asked to sit in those seats for 7 hours."

Cons: "Gate attendant had a snide attitude and made a joke about the possibility that a Samsung 7 could cause an explosion in flight over the intercom. Very unprofessional."

Cons: "The crew members were not very happy and were snappy in their replies. The seating is ridiculously small, you cannot access the carry one baggage under the seat if the person in front of you puts their seat back. The food was better this time than the flight to Beijing, still not great. I also need to add that the original flight from Chicago to Beijing had a 7 hour delay which was ridiculous, especially when traveling so far. No food vouchers were offered and passengers were kept in the dark for long periods of time. The return flight was also slightly delayed. This is not a good reputation for an airlines to have. United will not be my first choice of airlines in the future."

Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "They changed my direct flight to a connecting flight. My bag didn't make it either."

Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "It was a 6 hr. flight and neither entertainment nor food was complimentary. We were given a tiny pack of pretzels. You expect to at least receive a lunch on a 6 hr. flight. Disappointing."

Pros: "Early boarding for passengers with children under age of 2 was super helpful for me as I was traveling by myself with baby for the first time!"

Pros: "It was nice and smooth and I had an empty seat in between, it doesn't make 5 stars because I was in coach."

Pros: "Flight was on time and early to destination"
Cons: "Stuck in 32D, seat didn't recline, bathroom was my headrest, tv screen wouldn't turn off, no legroom at all.. Just a miserable flight."

Pros: "choices"
Cons: "too much $ for 1/2 a meal."

Cons: "Getting rerouted to LAX. It would have been much less expensive to book a flight to LAX originally."

Cons: "I need my suitcase asap. There are lots of important stuff inside."

Cons: "My flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Having to spent the night here at the airport. I'm still here waiting. I was rebooked on a 11:55am flight for this morning 7/19/16. Very disappointed."

Pros: "I traveled with a 2yr. Old and boarding first really helps to get settled in our seats."

Pros: "Flight attendants were okay and we made up an hour on the way which did not make up for the 5 hour delay in Beijing."
Cons: "United did not come close to matching the Air China flight service and entertainment from SFO to Beijing. Was told we would get a voucher for the hotel but only got $10 voucher each for lunch which did not cover lunch. Had to stand in a line for an hour to check in even though we did not have luggage. All in all, a very frustrating experience."

Pros: "We arrived early."
Cons: "We were in group 5, We couldn't take our carry on. They ran out of space for it in the overhead bins. Had to check it."

Pros: "Took off early!"
Cons: "One stuartist was very frank and unwelcoming."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew were friendly and a smooth sailing flight."

Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."

Cons: "I did not make it on time to a wedding because of the delay & problem with the plane."

Pros: "Very basic flight I can't get stars to delete Food and entrain 0. Comfort 0 cre 7"

Cons: "Poor management of delayed flight and boarding"

Cons: "There was a one hour delay in our boarding and departure times which cut into our travel times."

Cons: "Never made it to Sna. Whiched me to lax because that was fastest time back. Wasted more money on uber to get home from la"

Pros: "Efficient boarding and exiting"
Cons: "Spoke to united agent night before light. Re distance between gates in in Houston. Wasn't sure that I was only two gates away and I would not need wheelchair transportation. However when I re-arrived in Houston not only was I at the far end of the terminal I landed in I had to go all the way out and catch a train to a different turn on and the and the gate was not there, was train ride to different terminal, I just made the flight, but my hip is still hurting"

Pros: "I ALWAYS LOVE THE SMILING FACES OF THE CREW"
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"

Pros: "Clean new airplane. pleasant staff. On time."
Cons: "United charges 8 bucks for you to just see where you are now. Worse yet, the entertainment system loops with sound off even if you dont choose it. Taunting you to "just swipe" so you can join the club. I HATE this experience and feel the airline has made a very bad call. I'm sure some bean counter is looking at the "swipes" as proof of his brilliance. but i will pay more to fly on other airlines after this...so screw you guys."

Pros: "Plane left on time, arrived early, wasn't completely full."

Pros: "I had a mobility issue and was given preboarding and extra legroom seats, which helped my overall satisfaction. The temperature in the plane started very cold and then sometimes would go really warm. Other than that, good flight, nonstop and fast, and pleasant crew."
Cons: "I put poor for food & entertainment, because there were none (for free)."

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "My flight got canceled 3 hours before take off. Had to wait for over an hour on hold to reschedule it. The flight that was rescheduled was not direct and turned a 1.5 hour trip into a 6 hour trip. Also every time I was in boarding group 4 but was at the front of the plane and ALL OF THE OVERHEAD SPACE WAS TAKEN ALREADY so I had to walk further back in the plane to find overhead space so when the plane landed I got to WAIT FOR EVERYONE TO GET OFF so that I could walk TO THE BACK OF THE PLANE to get my bag!!! Ridiculous never flying United airlines ever ever ever again."
