Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "There was good food and entertainment"
Cons: "I'd like better vegetarian options for food though"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Staff was fine. No complaints."
Cons: "Although the food was abundant and tasted good, it was rather heavy. Lots of starch (and chocolate!). That kind of food may be fun and satisfying, but it's not really the best thing for middle-aged adults who are sitting on an airplane for 10 hours! If you can work in more fruits and veggies or light desserts, that would be great! Regarding entertainment: We could not connect to the entertainment system, so we watched a DVD that we brought along with us."
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."
Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."
Pros: "The flight crew were great and very accommodating."
Cons: "A majority of the passengers on flight either barely caught, or missed, their connecting flight due to this flight being so delayed."
Cons: "I booked my flight from Vancouver to Kiev The first flight it's to Toronto then to Kiev.. and when Went to the counter in Kiev they said sorry but Turkish airline didn't send my booking to kanda airline so I missed all my flight schedule I didn't wait I bought another ticket to Kiev in the same date on Lufthansa airline And it cost me like 1945c$"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Pros: "nice screen, but need to bring your own earplugs or pay to get a pair. toilet was clean, seat was quite comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "the reading light from next seat passenger was disturbing me a lot, spotting on my head & arm and it was really warm.. no room to store bag below front seat"
Pros: "In flight Game of Thrones!!"
Cons: "The lines at YVR were horrendous."
Pros: "the accommodation of the carry on in the compartments, it is absolutely disturbing and dangerous; specially and such of huge plane like the one I flew. Passengers should have the right to have a least 1 registered for free luggage to avoid such of chaos, possible injuries and delays. i feel horrible for the flight attendants for such of task of carrying and moving so many luggages."
Cons: "The fact that traveling International for so many hours, I was treated like I was flying Domestic. No, food, no drinks. In the past airlines complained about cost of fuel, gas, but now is cheaper and we PASSANGERS never have any consideration flying. Another fact is the seatis are too small, I had to share my seat with two overweight women and they occupied part of my space, I was so uncomfortable, I requested for another seating and was not possible due to the fullness of the plain. I standed up many time not rubber and feel the heat of that person on my left side. overweight people should be suggested to buy double seating."
Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."
Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."
Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."
Cons: "Missed the flight"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a drink or food for 2 hours into the flight. Then when they reached me, all the options were sold out. I had crackers and hummus for lunch. I am pregnant and travelling alone with a toddler and was told by a flight attendant they were suppose to help me lift my bag. Nothing major, but left an unpleasant experience compared to Westjet."
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Cons: "Baggage misplaced"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Cons: "I almost missed my connecting flight due to AC delaying departure in Vancouver. I received no solid information from the stewardess on the flight on whether the connecting plane in Toronto would wait. I mean, really. There was never any explanation as to why the Vancouver flight was late either."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."
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: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy which made a big difference. Lots of leg room, a menu, pre flight drinks."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."
Cons: "Pretty terrible for an international airline, charge for drinks, earbuds, no inflight entertainment without pre downloading their crappy app, which was full of ancient, terrible movies. Lots of stuff broken on plane, reading light would turn on/off randomly. Very annoying. Charger did not work, had to use the row next to us"
Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."
Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."
Pros: "I always like to fly Air Canada for long international flights. Everyone has their own TV, where you can choose what movie/TV show you want to watch, or what game you want to play. You can also pause, fast forward, and rewind at any point, which is not always possible on other airlines. The food was also very tasty. We were served two full meals and a sandwich. The alcohol was free, which was lovely too. The staff were nice and there was plenty of leg room. Overall, it was a great flight."
Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."
Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "At least there was food tho only banana bread for breakfast"
Cons: "No movies or entertainment for overnight flight"
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"
Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."
Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."
Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."
Pros: "The crew members were fabulous."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive when I did. I did not see my personal belongings for three days. When the second leg of my journey was cancelled, I was book on a flight with a short connection. Therefore, my luggage remained in Canada while I went on to Japan."
Pros: "Exit seat. Leg room"
Cons: "Breakfast too small. Plane leaked on me during take off and landing. 3 hour delay on plane before take off. Stewardesses ignored people looking for water."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Pros: "Very annoyed with the direct tv. No gluten free option for food/snacking."
Cons: "comfortable seating. nice staff. on time flights."
Cons: "This flight and three others arrive into Dublin at 5:00 am This is a bizarre time to arrive at a destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."
Pros: "It had been years since we last flew UNITED. Honestly, we were a bit apprehensive after learning of friends' negative experiences but we moved forward with our plan. The flight was smooth, and ahead of schedule and the crew was totally on top of their game. SPOT ON!"
Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "awful handling of the flight delay with lack of info and updates. We were told we were boarding in twenty minutes for four hours."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "We booked with Air Canada but it was actually United. The flight was delayed five hours. This always happens with United and they seldom provide explanations or updates."
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight to PHX the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Another normal flight."
Cons: "Check in troubles. Couldn't check in online. Agents had some trouble locating our reservations. Security was a lengthy process. Big brother type operation going through customs."
Pros: "Crew and services"
Cons: "in flight movies were not free while most other airlines offer passenger free in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Pros: "I had no complications before/during this flight. It was as if the air travel angels were smiling down on me, making little decisions like, "Sure. Give her that rare luxury of having no one sitting beside her... twice in a row. And toss in not one, but two of those United Airlines cookies." (Those cookies are sooooo good.) Really, at the moment, I can think of nothing anyone could've done any better."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"
Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."
Pros: "Not much to like about United these days, just basic cattle car service and nickel and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Didn't fly this leg on United, but rather on Air Canada."
Pros: "Gate Crew in YVR was very courteous"
Cons: "Deadheading pilots throwing large carry on in front rows but sitting in back rows. Really guys?"
Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
Pros: "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew, especially the African American stewardess is to be commended for her (their) responsiveness. The flight was pleasant, however I could not give an excellent rating. To give an excellent rating would meant his flight or airline stood out above all others."
Cons: "Very tight seating, lack of wifi entertainment on a 4 hour flight is despicable"
Pros: "poor airline with bad time and no accomodation"
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
Cons: "Our flight arrived 20m late, as did my wife on the same flight three nights earlier."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and the later flights to Portland were all full, so I was offered a flight to Boston instead, with no refund for the bus ticket from Boston to Portland, and of course my bag did not arrive with me."
Pros: "Not much to say about an hour flight. Coffee could not be served due to weather conditions, not airlines fault."
Pros: "He's a great pilot."
Cons: "That flight was so very scary.My name is Addison ( Parinaz ) Barati."
Pros: "The flight was an hour late due to bad weather delaying the plane's arrival. The great news is the boarding process was quick and efficient. Once seated the pilot announced that the weather delaying the arrival would help 'push' us for our flight. Only a half hour late after an hour delay departing."
Cons: "Over four hour delay due to "crew unavailability.""
Pros: "Boarding was quick, but when you're in Premier Global whatever you go on first, so that doesn't mean much. The stewardess was nice enough, but didn't have much to offer from United."
Cons: "This was a three hour flight. I would have expected a bit more class in business class for three hours. Instead, there was wine in plastic bottles, and a basket of wrapped snacks. Yahoo."
Pros: "I like the fact that entertainment is offered over WiFi. Seats were comfortable. I really like the headrests which keep head in place."
Cons: "Snack is very small. Entertainment didn't work for me on this flight (worked fine from Chicago to Detroit) which is a shame because that was by far my longer leg of travel. Movie would play for approximately 5 to 30 seconds and then WiFi would disconnect from my phone and cause the movie to stop. Worked fine on next flight but it was short so I couldn't finish watching the movie I started. Not sure why airlines refuse to board by row from the back forward but your boarding (from window to aisle) is a reasonable compromise."
Pros: "Boarding and arrival on time, crew was courteous, and drinks and snacks were ok."
Cons: "Seating was a bit cramped and I'm not a big guy at all. There was no wifi on the plane for a 3 hour flight."
