Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Everything!!!! The best airline in the world!"

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Cons: "So the seats while comfy are not as nice as the seats now on the reframed United Polaris and Delta and Air France in their newer planes."

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Pros: "'Low cal meal for you?' Sorry embarrassing. Nothing low cal really bread butter potato corn thing ... kinda gross, just ate rice which is not low cal. Still waiting for my luggage ... driver will now have waited over an hour... sorry ..."

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."

Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."

Pros: "On Time good service"
Cons: "Serving alcohol on board"

Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"

Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."

Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."

Cons: "Length"

Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"

Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"

Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."

Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."

Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"

Pros: "I enjoy the plus seats with extra leg room"
Cons: "I found your crew quite unfriendly"

Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."

Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"

Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"

Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."

Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."

Cons: "United canceled my flightl"

Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."

Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."

Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"

Cons: "Ok for a short flight"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful to make us feel comfortable and they really worked as a team to make sure it went smoothly."
Cons: "The seats were really tight to move around."

Pros: "Horrible"

Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."

Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."

Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."

Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."

Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"

Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."

Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"

Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."

Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"

Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."

Pros: "Patrick- flight attendant"

Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "Everytime I fly United there is ALWAYS a delay. I will never choose to fly United again. I had two flight which were both delayed, very upset about it."
