Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"

Pros: "Crew and promptness"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Pros: "Premium space"
Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."

Cons: "Had to be rebooked due to safety issue on my departing flight and lost my connection in Washington DC. Hours of sitting."
Pros: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment. Poor quality sandwiches."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Cons: "flghit Porto/Lisbon 1 hour delay"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed, the gate crew did not do a good job announcing the new delay times and reasons for the delays."
Cons: "The plane didn’t have water in the bathrooms in the back of the plane so we had to use wet wipes to clean our hands afterwards. Entertainment system was slow. No complementary meals offered even though it was an international flight."
Pros: "Overnight flight so slept. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No entertainment."
Cons: "In a flight that is only 1:45, to have an incoming flight delayed by 1:45 for non-mechanical issues can create a lot of havoc. On the turnaround, we boarded and arrived very late. We missed our connection to Sydney and had to wait 24 hours for the next flight out."
Cons: "Small plane, no room for cabin luggage"
Pros: "People are couteous"
Cons: "Very cramped; big doing and dance about overhead room so I gate checked. There was empty overhead space and bags very slow to come out at baggage claim"
Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."
Pros: "Passengers were kept well-informed by staff on flight status. Boarding process was efficient. Gate agents and crew were professional and friendly. Appreciated the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and claustrophobic. I'm only 5 feet tall and my legs were stiff after a 90 minute flight. "Snacks" were kind of pathetic - tiny bag of pretzels. The worst part was the crowded gate area at Boston. It made me feel like a cattle holding pen. Since we're told to get there two hours early, it would be nice to have more than a tiny little snack bar with overpriced pre-made sandwiches and salads that have been sitting out for who knows how long. Crappy lukewarm coffee. Starbucks is right outside security, but of course we can't bring liquids through."
Pros: "I finally arrived to Vancouver."
Cons: "They took me off my flight because my previous flight arrived to Toronto late and I manage to get to the gate 10 minutes before the departure. Even though it was late because of Air Canada’s fault, the airline did not bother to accommodate me and made me to wait for next flight for 4 hours, without any compensation."
Pros: "On-line check-in was available.The process in Taipei to board the flight was good."
Cons: "Power outlet's didn't work"
Pros: "Great service, multiple meal/snack services and staff was friendly and helpful when needed,"
Cons: "The customer service line through telephone was not very helpful and seemed to cause more worry when we ran into a problem with our flight."
Cons: "Too long to board and a little disorganized at boarding"
Pros: "This flight was not full, so it was a pleasanter experience than expected. Actually, I slept through most of it."
Cons: "flight was delayed, but only by 2 hours, which doesn't even seem that bad. The gate was changed TWICE, which really wasn't awesome, and the 3rd gate did not have enough places to sit down."
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"
Cons: "2 hour delay, lack of connecting ticket made me have to go through security all over again, the "entertainment" is an app for your smartphone/tablet."
Pros: "It is one step back from Air Canada Rouge but it is the best airline flying to LA"
Cons: "I missed the blankets and pillows"
Pros: "Once I made my flight (the next day) everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Online checkin does not inform passenger if their passport is suitable for travel. Although my online checkin was successful, once at the airport the attendant would not allow boarding because expiration was within 6 months of travel - a requirement for certain countries. It would be much more efficient - for airline and passengers - if the online check in system can catch this before arrival at the airport."
Pros: "Nothing because it didn't happen"
Cons: "When I got to the airport, the attendant notified me that my flight had been exchanged. No one notified me of this and I was still under the impression that my flight was scheduled as my itenerary in my latest email. It took two hours to figure out that United had changed my flight and booked me on a different one. Once again, without notifying me. Thank god they changed my flight to a later one or I would have missed it. By the time we figured out what flight I was on, I had to sprint to a different terminal because check in was closing in 20 mins. I arrived at the check in kiosk with less than 5 mins to spare. The experience was terrible and customer service from each Kayak, United and Air Canada. I also injured my back while sprinting between terminals wearing a heavy backpacking backpack. Would not book through Kayak again."
Pros: "The food was pretty good!"
Cons: "*The in-flight entertainement required you tonise your own mobile devices, but locks "premium" content (movies) and forces you to install an app to view it - which you can't do once your on the plane and have no wifi. Also, there's no way my iPad would've lasted 7h without a charging port anyways..."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, and the USB ports that allowed me to keep my iPad fully charged."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable."
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "It would seem that if you are seated toward the rear of aircraft the likely hood of your overhead storage compartment being available to you are pretty remote. There doesn't seem to be any adherence to baggage size regulations and consequently passenger start jamming their bags in other people's allotted compartments. The problem seems to cascade the further back in the plane you go. Very fxxking annoying and you are left holding the bags so to speak!"
Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"
Cons: "The Centre chairs are uncomfortable."
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Cons: "When I am willing to purchase overpriced food on a plane, please at least have what I would like from the menu. On my flight to Canada and from Canada to Las Vegas I ordered food and had to settle on what they had available because I was so hungry. As soon as I asked for food, the crew should know what is and isn't available. Food was ok, whoever shot the pictures for the menu did a fantastic job of making it look good. Chicken wrap was good."
Pros: "Pilot was able to make up for delayed departure and flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Plane needed better cleaning - Lots of stuff (food, paper, dirt) between the seats. Entertainment system not working properly - screen kept going blank."
Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."
Pros: "Roomy, professional, friendly. Very efficient. Beverages, meals and snacks were timed well, so that the long flight felt like it went much quicker. I'm not particularly picky or spoiled, so me rating the breakfast and lunch as great, may not be the same fOr others. But my meals were delicious to me. I would definitely fly Canada air again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "lack of seat/leg room...."
Pros: "1/2 hour late in departing. 2 1/2 hours. Sitting on Tarmac on flight to Toronto. Too crowded on plane"
Pros: "the flight attendant was VERY friendly and helpful. we had her on another flight as well and were very impressed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, and there was so much confusion as to the departure gate at the airport. it kept switching and airline reps were not helpful or friendly on the matter. it was a huge mess"
Pros: "The crew was great, the flight was fast, the plane was very comfortable. Other than the time delay, the flight was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over thirty minutes, which was very inconvenient going through customs with a connecting flight."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Number of movie selections for a transcontinental flight was really poor especially compared to a Delta transcontinental flight I took the week before."
Cons: "Small legroom and poor selection in the entertainment provided via wifi"
Cons: "I will never fly Air Canada between Detroit and Toronto again. Both ways the crew looked exhausted and like they were rather be anyplace but working our flight. Both times they took our carry ons without giving us a choice. For our flight out this was a stressful nuisance because we had to catch a connecting overseas flight. This involved my husband and son going to baggage claim and then having to go back through customs and TSA. The whole point of carry ons is to avoid this. Luckily we didn't miss our international flight but not a good way to begin a trip of a lifetime. Flight was completely uncomfortable and it seemed like no one cared. Should have driven"
Cons: "No tvs. Delays. Worst airline ever"
Pros: "at least a packet of crisps with your drinks of juice and water"
Cons: "no movies and music-earphones"
Cons: "It was an Air Canada Rouge flight sold as Lufthansa. Bait and switch."
Cons: "I don't care for the practice of charging to select ones seat"
Pros: "On time boarding and on time landing"
Cons: "Shaking moves just before landing, very scary"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, boarding could have been delayed to avoid sitting on the tarmac for such a long period of time in the plane. That is EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE for travellers. If Air Canada knows the departure will be delayed, boarding of the aircraft should be delayed"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick, efficient, on time"
Cons: "Seats had least legroom of any plane I can remember. I'm not that tall and my knees were in the seat pocket the whole 5 hr flight. Also, the seats could stand to be a lot cushier. I felt like I was sitting on a piece of cardboard after the first 2 hours."
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)."
Pros: "Staff were nice and helpful. Food was surprisingly good for being on an airplane."
Cons: "The flight over all was good. The annoying part was that we were boarded and then were informed there was a maintenance issue, then there was a fire alarm so we ended up sitting in our seats for an hour before the flight finally took off and it was already a 6.5 hour flight so being stuck on there longer was not ideal"
Cons: "Food was horrible. The dinner was horrible rice and a meatball looking thing that was suppose to be chicken. I can't eat eggs so I couldn't eat the egg. The porige was awful"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Where do I start. Plane was very late taking off but the biggest thing was that I paid extra for a premium seat and I think it was worse then any regular seat. Waste of money!! Now the food. It sucked and there wasn't much of it. Dinner was at best skimpy and " breakfast" was a piece of some kind of cake. That was it!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "No TVs and limited movie selection."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Keep traveler's updated on delays."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Cons: "Very crowded plane."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and helpful. Captain kept us posted along the way. They also keep air flowing when we were delayed to take off so everyone is comfortable inside the crowded cabin."
Cons: "Crew should try to wake me up for meals. Luckily my fellow passengers did. Otherwise I would have missed all my meals."
Cons: "Not having so many delay and not seating on a plane for over an hour to take off."
Pros: "Emergency exit"
Cons: "Extra blankets as emergency exit is terribly cold Boarding"
Cons: "arrived 24 hours late. had to stay overnight in Newark. And United lost our luggage. The worst trip I have ever had."
Pros: "Good flight, decent crew. Food was okay."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Pros: "Crew was great. Let me sleep and was pleasant and professional."
Pros: "Fast boarding and helpful crew."
Cons: "Food was cold and soggy."
Pros: "The food was very good. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. A bit late leaving but time was made up in flight. All in all a pleasant trip."
Cons: "Some of the entertainment screens were inoperative. The occupied light for the forward restroom (in business class) was not working so you never knew if it was free or not."
Cons: "the stewardess and steward bumped seated me continually when I complained she told me it was tight inexcusable"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival and a friendly crew helped keep this flight smooth despite some turbulence. The fact that there have been electrical outlets on this route for so long is a testimony to the Continental heritage."
Cons: "The seats in economy are just so tight that sleep on this short overnight flight was almost impossible. The lack of more recline (as in the recarro sears used on the LH/LX products) and short pitch make it hard to either work or sleep. The small plane size makes this sardine feeling worse and slows service to the rear of be craft."
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Pros: "Pretty smooth despite high winds and on time."
Pros: "There was a fair amount of leg room."
Cons: "Boarding could be a little frustrating because groups 3 4 5 were 1 lane and there wasn't a lot of room in the airport. Also, there wasn't a lot of time to get from one side of the airport to the other to stop at the restroom and get a real meal, since there was nothing served on the previous flight. Due to turbulence there was nothing served on the flight, which is beyond the control of the crew. They knrw ahead of time about the turbulence, perhaps they could have quickly passed out pretzels or cookie before the flight took off."
Pros: "We got to Lisbon"
Cons: "The entertainment system in 36E didn't work. The sound in 36D what a lot of noise (it made it unusable)."
Pros: "Left the gate one minute early, sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes, arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "The check in with united was rather disappointing. The staff working with united were not clear with instructions and rather rude. Checking in can be a rather stressful process when there are long lines and tons of people.... this person was just short, unclear and rude."
Cons: "Please see above"
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. New plane I think - no window shades, it's tinted windows that change colors! They came by many times to offer water, pick up trash. We even got ice cream for dessert! Also, I have a special meal which they brought correctly (have had airlines mess it up which is crummy on a long plane ride). Also, great in flight entertainment on the screens (no need to use personal devices), lots of recent movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them. Was also surprised to find guided meditations from Headspace which helped me get to sleep! Overall, loved it and would definitely fly again."
Cons: "My bag did not show up at my destination, but I think it will soon. I like that their automated system is sending updates every 6 hours and I can call anytime as well. Fingers crossed it turns up :)"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Cons: "4 hours late, bad food, stressed staff."
Pros: "United club in terminal A."
Cons: "Flight delays. 2:21 delayed until 3:33 delayed until 5:55 delayed until 6:15pm. Too many excuses. Plane late to arrive. Mechanical maintenance And then the plane was practically empty. So I am thinking. Could these delays be a result of not enough passengers to fill plane and so let's delay and make excuses and get as many passengers on one plane. Hmmmm. Get it together guys!"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "Crew announced that the entertainment app had to be downloaded preflight in order to use movies. They gave ample time for that."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Roomy and new seats Courteous and on time service."
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Cons: "Crew members were not helpful."
Cons: "Flight left 13 hours behind schedule. No hotel room provided."
Cons: "No entertainment at all makes a 4.5 hr flight really long."
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."
Pros: "Did not fly as I chose to drive to St George so I could make my business meeting. I would have missed this if I had stayed on the plane."
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience. Will travel on United again in the near future"
