Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "No and no"
Cons: "The plane could have been maintained. Instead I sat for three hours and was told the mechanics didn’t have the equipment to fix the plane"
Cons: "Someone stole flight attendants wallet, the plane was fairly empty but they still crammed us in the back. Had to wait for police to board plane to find out who stole wallet."
Cons: "We waited in the shuttle bus for one hour while they determined the plane needed maintenance and found another plane to warm up"
Pros: "A wonderful crew!"
Cons: "Less turbulence on take-off; but I don't really think you can control such things!"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"
Pros: "Smooth for most of the flight"
Cons: "4:41 pm flight took off at 7:00 pm. Landed and now sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate."
Pros: "Ice cream sundae was yummy. Good amount of entertainment options."
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "Leave on time! On this round trip there were 4 segments and 3 of the 4 flights were late!"
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were helpful, some were not. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The Food was not fully warmed, seats were uncomfortable. The boarding process did not seem organized."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Crew needs to improve their attitude"
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Great flight. Great staff. Nice landing"
Cons: "Limited legroom is a problem. Otherwise, the flight was fine."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Comfortable wifi enabled jet."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2hrs. Inbound aircraft mechanical trouble. No info provided by airline. Maddening 10 minute rolling delay. "Your flight is boarding in xx(10) minutes and no airplane is at gate. It's just ridiculous."
Cons: "One bathroom for whole plane for 5.5 hr flight. Enough said."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Time of flight and on time flight"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "I got to japan"
Cons: "I paid for Japan airlines because they are a clean airline and service is superior. Watch the fine print. My seat was dirty crumbs and leftovers left in the pouch and folding tray."
Pros: "Worst airline food in years."
Cons: "Food was bad on all 4 legs of trip"
Pros: "Excellent check in and access to plane food and entertainment great"
Cons: "Bed seat too short for a 6 ft 3 in guy made for an uncomfortable night"
Pros: "Flight was not completely full so I got an empty seat next to me."

Cons: "No entertainment and nowhere to charge electronics."
Pros: "The plane itself was comfortable and there was ample storage for bags. The food was also fine."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a bit cold and distant, and the boarding service was unclear -- they didn't announce groups! We all had to guess when to line up so we were surprised when it was time to board."
Cons: "No charges for cellphones on first class! (Plane looks pretty new as well)"
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Pros: "Everything, the plane was big and comforting, the fly attendants were very courteous and professional. Awesome fly."
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "Friendly customer service, good snacks."
Cons: "No negative actions or interactions."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Plane arrived early."
Pros: "Great crew is what made the short flight awesome!"
Cons: "Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing."
Pros: "A great ride."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled and they refused to pay for my hotel and food. They finally paid for the hotel but not food."
Cons: "Too cold!!"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Cons: "Had another problem with the plane, this was the cargo door and after waiting forever, that was fixed and then they had to refuel, I was an hour and a half late getting to my destination and they kept telling us just a few more minutes."
Pros: "Here to be no delayed."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The flight itself wasn't bad"
Cons: "The delays were such an inconvenience. It was unacceptable. However, the crew was great"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, even in first class. Food a joke for a 4 hour class. No pillows, even in first class."
Cons: "Free wifi for business class customers. $6,000 ticket then asked to pay 10/hr for wifi is insulting!"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment screen. Would have liked one on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
Pros: "The food was ok. Movie selection was decent and the screens are a lot better than on jet airways."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed. Service was a little slow, but the crew was courteous and did their best."
Cons: "Originating flight got delayed . Air Canada simply declined to accommodate in the next available flight even though I had single ticket with Air Canada and AIr India completing the final sector from Delhi to Bhopal and back."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked and even though I booked in November for this Dec 30th flight I was given a seat 30 cm across from the bathroom. The crew area for meal Preparation etc was also directly behindmy seat. Needless to say, I got no sleep on this eight hour flight, had to endure disgusting smells from the bathroom and people hitting my seat every time they passed by bc this is an area where there is not usually a seat. Everyone waiting for the bathroom was in my bubble. To add salt in the wound, the TV and light for reading also did not work. This was the worst flight I've ever had and I feel Air Canada put these 2 seats there as a money grab. No one should ever have to sit there, especially when paying full price."
Pros: "On-line check-in was available.The process in Taipei to board the flight was good."
Pros: "Fast flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "The staff and crew were just amazing, I traveled with my 83 yr old mom who's in a wheelchair and the staff was with us from arrival to boarding and once boarded, the air crew was helpful and checking up on her often during the flight. The plane was full load of people so it was really hot but the crew came by often with water refill. A lady besides me was coughing a lot and sure enough the stewardess came by with water and to ask if anything she could do without having been summoned. We rented tablets to see movies and I'm not very technological but the stewardess was very patient with me and took time to help me set up and she showed me how to go about in your application. The flights to and from Las Vegas were perfect and all thanks to the wonderful crew you have, even the pilot was standing at the entrance to greet us when we boarded which was great as I got to see who I was entrusting my life to during this 4h38 min flight, quite reassuring. Anyways, UA, Transat and AA take a back seat to Air Canada any day of the week!"
Cons: "the heat was real bad, even with he little air vents on the ceiling, it was still really hot. the leg room was cramped but it felt like the seats were a little roomier than my last flights with Transat, UA and AA but that could be my imagination."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. There was a child that screamed the entire way. Wish flight staff was trained on calming children, even though I know it was just bad planning on the parents. Also wish there was a hygiene policy. Half the flight was not wearing deodorant, and you could tell."
Pros: "This was a long flight so we opted for premium economy, which upgrade was very reasonably priced. Almost everything about the flight was wonderful; friendly, efficient crew, comfortable seat and temperature, tasty food and generous drinks and on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "The entertainment app which we downloaded to our iPads prior to the flight, is a bit flaky in that it would get in a loop of advertising and made watching a movie frustrating"
Pros: "Good normal flight."
Pros: "N time"
Cons: "Food. Chicken wrap was just okay"
Pros: "Nice plane and crew."
Pros: "The cree"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful. My entertainment app was not letting me play a movies so they gave me a tablet for free. I thought that was very nice customer service."
Cons: "Nor enough moxie choices and mostly old ones. The exact same ones were playing on my return flight. The food options were not great. Not enough of a selection. Also my daughter and I were assigned seats apart and I felt not enough was done to help us sit together. We had to handle it ourselves once on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Pros: "Employee in Boston terminal great help in sign in process. Volunteer, I believe, in Air Canada terminal in Toronto helped me find my way to another terminal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I was rebooked even though I could have make the connection. I had only a carry on so the luggages were not an issue."
Pros: "Service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and the plane took off an hour late due to boarding inefficiencies)"
Pros: "The smiling and helpful crew members"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the tv didn't work well"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable aircraft"
Pros: "The legroom on Rouge is horrendous. My 6' teenage son was so wedged in we could not move/stretch his legs whatsoever. Problem is, Air Canada gives us no choice but to fly "Rouge" to our destination. Once my flight pass is completed I am seriously thinking of moving moyalty to Westjet. I can't take Rouge discomfort any longer. Also - due to turbulence on the flight they decided to withhold food and beverage service without any announcements the entire flight. Nor did they distribute iPads. Far into the 3 hour flight they came with water. That's it. The insult to injury was that on preparation for landing they said their "canned" announcements that they were coming to collect iPads and any remaining items. Oh and did I mention we left 2 hours late? And the fact that the Premium passenger got meals and we had to smell them all flight long? Funny how that works. Very disappointed, Rouge."
Pros: "The service was timely ,the flight was smooth, great views of NYC and also fast"
Cons: "Entertainment system and USB charging port were not functional. The crew did try to re-set the system but no luck."
Pros: "I thought the crew was awesome. Very friendly, but the bathrooms definitely needed to be taken care of. SO dirty."
Cons: "TV wasn't working at all which made for a very long flight! Food selection ran out. I felt like the plane was old and outdated."
Pros: "When I finally got to the US Customs agents they were actually quite nice. This has been my experience with US agents in Vancouver and Philadelphia as well. Yesterday they were especially cordial, while at the same time quite professional. Made me proud to be a US citizen."
Cons: "Don't know what could be done about it, but the security liine was the longest I've ever seen. I've come home from Vancouver many times before, and most times I fly direct to the USA from YVR, where things are much better. Don't think it's Tornoto's fault.....but, yesterday's experience with the security line makes it unlikely that I will come back home this way again."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Extra security and customs checks changing planes in Canada"
Pros: "Timeliness, cleanliness and service"
Cons: "Snack at the end of the flight was not up to par"
Pros: "No snacks but love flying with Air Canada. Hope it continues."
Cons: "Have to bring my own snack."
Pros: "Plane left on time, smooth flight, arrived on schedule."
Cons: "1. Food very substandard. Hot food not very well prepared and rather tasteless, and snack was like a cardboard wrap with some salsa sauce in it. A disgrace to a major airline like Air Canada. Selection of drinks very limited. 2, Staff persisted in speaking mostly French, on an international flight. Some announcements were made only in French. As a Canadian, I can follow French, but let us remember that English is the international language. To use French is not fair to other nationalities, who expect English. 3. Seats far too close together for a long flight. There was more legroom on the Jazz flight from Montreal to Ottawa! 4. Entertainment kept breaking down. Headphones for my wife did not work, and eventually both of our screens went dead. Her's quit right in the middle of a movie. Bad!! 5. Boarding passes had zones on them, but these were totally disregarded in boarding. This resulted on overcrowding, long waits, etc. Hard on older people!"
Pros: "The crew were effective and efficient. We boarded promptly and departed on time. They were polite and friendly."
Cons: "Flight left gate on time then had a power failure. Pilot said can't fly the plane without power. Had to pull in, reboot all computers (and add fuel????). It doesn't really make any sense. Also does not inspire confidence in the plane. Only thing I can think of is they weren't done fueling and pushed back to protect their "on time" stats. If true, that's lame."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "J have never seen before the company charge for food on international flights"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The food was decent and the snack was good too -- a small hot pizza."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked and I had to take a flight the next day because of it. I almost missed my cruise because of the overbooked flight. It really made for a hassle when traveling"
Pros: "The pilot got us through some pretty heavy turbulence. Good job!"
Cons: "We were waiting in the plane for a couple of hours. They had us then disembark for half an hour and board again. I missed my connection. Air Canada needs to revisit the timetables from Toronto, all the transatlantic flights leave after 16:00, that creates long queues in the airport security and huge delays in cases like mine. I arrived 20 hours after my original flight because of this schedule. Additionally, they did not offer us any food, while the whole process took more than 10 hours. We arrived in Toronto at midnight local, when everything had already closed for the day."
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Pros: "Stewardess was friendly Movies were good Relatively room and clean Customs in Vancouver was awesome!!!"
Cons: "Steward getting on the plane in Shanghai had an attitude, was actually a jerk Food was not very appetizing"
Pros: "Clean plane, attentive efficient staff, easy boarding."
Cons: "Flight staff forgot to pass out customs forms upon landing in Toronto - caused some confusion at customs entry."
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: "Attendants were conscientious, hospitable."
Pros: "Crew was great.. offering my daughter snack choices when she did not like the initial offering."
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour delay related to passenger issue that we never did hear the real details on what was going on. Understand security comes first."
Cons: "The final leg of our travel boarded over 2 hours late. No compensation given for that. Two planes were declared not fly worthy-low confidence. While not Air Canada's responsibility, Toronto's Pearson Airport was awful. We went through many airports on our travels and this stood out as the worst. Constant security checks that seemed unnecessary. Poor line management. Not enough security/immigration kiosks. Very expensive food. During our 2+hour delay for boarding, we observed constant gate changes for other flights. Flight organization seems poor."
Cons: "5 hour delay. Didn't get the correct seat."
Pros: "That we made it there reasonably on time."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment unless you knew to get their app, before getting on the plane, limited leg room, bad food, no drinks on an int'l flight. Too bad it was the same price others charge."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "I didn’t like a thing! I cancel that flight a month ago, you said your were going to pay me back but I haven’t receive my fund. I have been back in America for month. Everyday I call nobody pick the phone or I’ll be on hold for hours until I hangup"
Cons: "What you can do better answer the phone and give me my money back."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, that was deception. UA the worst airline as far as I experienced it, delays, poor customer relationships and so on. I have to pay for luggage."
Cons: "The food! And 21 yo to drink let 18yo drinks"
Cons: "Late crew. Slow to depart added to delay. Arrival blocked by equipment in the gate, so we waited to get access to the terminal. 20 min after gate arrival, still no bags. Then one truck of luggage on the announced carousel and then...nothing. Secretly, the remaining bags were appearing on a differen"
Pros: "Foot rests are nice"
Cons: "Mediocre food Excellent staff"
Pros: "They were OK"
Cons: "Terrible business class seating. You have to climb over your neighbor to go use the rest room."
Pros: "Breakfast , comfort"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Pros: "Did was very good. Cattle call boarding."
Pros: "I felt spoiled with all the service and the ice cream was a special treat. I had never gotten ice cream on an oversea trip. Thanks."
Cons: "I wished that some of the children would have left the window blinds down so we could sleep."
Cons: "Es united, no se puede esperar mucho de ellos. El snack para 5 horas son unos pretzels y el entretenimiento lo cobran. Lo único bueno es que aun con un aviso en la pantalla pude ver el final del partido de Champions, por el resto,.... compañía a evitar."
Cons: "no electricity outlets"
Cons: "The plane was very old. No outlet to plug electronics. Small screens for video"
Pros: "Good food, entertainment options, communication from pilot"
Cons: "none of the flight attendants seemed to be friendly- literally all of them were neutral or slightly rude at best. Not impressed."
Pros: "indulged by the service and plenty of food"
Pros: "This flight was a good value."
Cons: "My legs are short and the seat seemed a little higher than other plans. I couldn't rest my feet flat on the floor for 6 1/2 hours. This was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Beyond one or two friendly crew members, not much."
Cons: "We booked our flights round trip on united.com, but when we arrived at the airport for our return flight from Budapest to D.C., we were told we were on standby and might not be given seats (despite paying full price for the fare months ago). Brussels Airlines, the codeshare partner, blamed United. United blamed Brussels airlines. We are the flight, but my wife and I were seated separately. When I noticed several seats empty after the plane had finished boarding and asked the head flight attendant if my wife and I might not together, she refused, saying they weren't going to give us a free upgrade. When we went to drop off our bags for the next leg of the flight, from Brussels to Dulles, the bag check counters we're severely understaffed and we waited almost an hour just to drop off two suitcases. This made us nearly miss our flight and required us to sprint through the airport and beg to cut the security line. After boarding, my entertainment screen stopped working, though they did manage to fix it a couple of hours into the flight. Needless to say, this was less then a stellar experience."
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "I was unable to pre-order a kosher meal through the web site. Customer service could barely write in legible English and in essence told me to take a hike. Flight was bumpy both ways for quite a while. What's the point of giving me a boarding pass in Tel Aviv if I need to go to the United transfer counter in Brussels and go through the process again, including a TSA (friendly) interrogation?"
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent food, good entertainment options to make the flight feel shorter."
Cons: "United Airlines portion of the flight from Brussels to IAD. My wife and I were seated in separate parts of the plane each in middle seats at the end of the boarding process when there was no longer any overhead room to store our belongings. Uncaring, unaccommodating crew, waiting area with not enough seats, and cramped seating on the plane with no possibility of sleep during an arduous seven hour flight."
Pros: "Smooth and seamless travel, great seats and punctual departure and arrival."
Pros: "food service"
Cons: "bagage allowance"
Cons: "Kayak dropped the ball with the last leg connection.. or somebody did..."
Cons: "Even though I have an account with United, and confirmed that I was a vegetarian both online, and on the flight heading to Europe, my meal wasn't entered. It worked out really well because I was sitting close to the front and they had pasta dishes available, but this is not the first time that United and its partners have "lost" or "mishandled" my vegetarian registration. The flight attendant even remarked that sadly, she hears this 'complaint' constantly. The food was good, but there's no reason that my meal request can't stay in the system."
Cons: "Delayed of 5 hours without much information. Huge line to passport control By United which i have never seen before."
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Cons: "Sit in the last row and wait for the food"
Pros: "lots of good movie choices"
Cons: "touch screens didn't always work easily"
Pros: "Flight and experience were great."
Cons: "I would expect when I book a Luftansa flight to fly in a Luftansa jet. This flight was carried by United and I did not know that until I arrived at the airport."
Cons: "I chose Luthansa because I was traveling with a bike and they are usually good about not overcharging however after booking the flight, United took over the flight and they have very unfriendly bike policies (200 each way). Usually I will not fly United because of these policies, I think I am done flying any Star Alliance companies."
Cons: "This was a mess as the attendants didn't not have my transfer ticket It took them for ever till the last minute when was called by the Microphone"
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Pros: "the service and aircraft were excellent"
Cons: "space between seat"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great with lots of variety (good for an 8 hour fight)."
Cons: "There were always lines for the toilets. Limited leg room. Food was meh."
Pros: "Same as before"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and timely."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was patronizing."
Cons: "Wanted some snacks in between the meals."
Cons: "Delayed boarding at Munich airport"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Ran out of food choices and plane was dirty , entertainment center locked up and could not use it"
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "there was one flight attendant who was annoying slow when he spoke over the intercom and paused for long breaks while still breathing into the mic. Very awkward. Everyone else was great though."
Pros: "Helpful crew when I told them that my right leg was causing me severe pain. I asked them to order a wheel chair for me when the plane landed They did so right away."
Cons: "The DVD player at my seat did not work. I was the last one to leave the plane, with the help of some crew members; but no wheelchair was waiting for me. A staff called but was told that no such an order was received and no one was then available to bring me a wheel chair. Later someone in the Cleaning crew made a couple of calls and finally ,10 to 15 minutes later, a wheelchair arrived."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, great staff, food was pretty decent, they were very accommodating and had sufficient drinks and snacks through the flight. I would highly recommend Brussels Airlines."
Cons: "People were not told where to get their transfer boarding passes until last minute. Security check of "random" passengers was overboard. I wasn't one of the passengers who had to undergo the extra security at the gate, but felt bad for those who did. Completely unnecessary.."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "A 1 hour delay in Brussels, combined with the complexity that is Dulles resulted our missing our connecting flight. The United employee who rebooked us for the late-night flight five hours later put my wife and me on separate rows, requiring a second wait in the lengthening lines to sort out. Avoid Dulles. Avoid United."
Cons: "Everything went wrong. The flight arrived 40 minutes late and I missed my connecting flight because they closed the gate before I could get there. As a result, when I asked both airlines involved (Brussels Air and Portugal Air (TAP) what to do, each airline blamed the other airline for the problem and each said it was my problem to fix. After speaking with ten people and begging them to make the problem right for a problem I did not create, they finally issued me a new ticket but I had to wait 24 hours for the new flight to leave. It was a total breakdown in communication and organization and customer support and problem resolution on the part of the airlines and the airport. I never want to fly these airlines again and never want to take a flight with connections."

Cons: "i went to the (galley?) at the back and politely requested a drink, a member of staff refused me because they were just about to begin serving drinks. that's stupid. i was sat right at the back of the plane and wouldn't get a drink for at least 20 minutes because service starts in the middle and works back. fortunately another member of staff (older, female) just reached over and handed me a drink, because she understood it was easier and quicker and more reasonable to do that than to be a dick about it."

Cons: "Had to change a tire on the plane - they checked us through at the gate but didn't allow us on the plane - which makes sense. However, they should have NOT checked us through at the gate.

I expect full compensation"
