Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people.

Pros: "Thoughtfulness, professionalism, patience and a lot of love put into the service."

Pros: "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked."

Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
Pros: "Very nice plane, enough room, didn't feel cramped"
Cons: "Had to switch gates 2 times"
Pros: "Seat was good and slept like a baby"
Cons: "Nothing really, slept the whole way"

Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "leg room!"
Cons: "Check in process was horrible at TKS, extremely unknowledgeable gate agents, took 6 people and 1.5 hours to check and pay for bags."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Pros: "I could upgrade my seat from a regular economy seat to a premium economy seat about 24 hours in advance. The flight attendants were generally attentive and thanks to the kindness of my ajacent passenger to my left, I could sometimes go to restrooms."
Cons: "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."
Pros: "It was clean and nice"
Cons: "Not enough English movies/tv shows"
Cons: "I waited 20 minutes for my baggage to return"
Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "The service is always top notch from the flight attendant, food is better than most airline and toilet is always clean. I could get a good seat with the leg room at my request."
Cons: "Entertainment, the variety of film is quite limited but they have good Japanese movie."
Pros: "nice sevice"
Pros: "The boarding procedure is clever. After premium boarding the seats near windows board first."
Cons: "The on line check-in failed and no explanations."
Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "Service and food was great, the price of the flight was good and overall, the flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative."
Pros: "This is how my trip started that day. Missed my checkin window by 10 mins do to waiting in traffic for 45 mins, because of wreck. Got to the ticket counter at 8:35 and my flight my was set to take of at 9:30. There wear others in the same boat as me, we where all flying with American. I will Never ever fly with American again! The Lady was so rude then she said we were disgrutle when we ask to speak to a manger about trying to board even though or flight didnt leave until 9:30. Not Military Friendly at all. So I ran down to Lufthansa and talk with a guy at the ticket counter that was understanding of the sistuation, he told me what to do once a Book my trip through Kayak he checked me in and got me right to the front and on the plane for the next flight that left 2 hours after my missed flight. I book my trip and got through Tsa all before my flight with american even took off. When I boared the plane the cabin crew was very helpful and laughing and joking with the passagners their smiles brighten my day and made me feel at easy. I was stressed out about missing my flight with American Airlines and that lady at the ticket counter that when on got my flight with Lufthanse I felt like they were my friends and that I have been flying with them before. I will always use Lufthansa when fliying back home back to the states! Thank you to flight crew and men and women at the ticket counters!!"
Cons: "If I could change one thing it would be better food, or the drink protion size or just give out canned drinks. But over all the best flight I have taken in a long time!!"
Pros: "New spacious plane, great crew, comfortable seats, good wine and partiffs. Anything thing is better than flying over priced crappy American Airlines and will avoid giving them a cent anytime I can. Lufthansa did a great job."
Cons: "I kid screamed all-the-way across pond all night. Maybe next force the parents to calm child down. Tough situation and had to really address that issue."
Pros: "The flt attendants were very good but not exceptional. The entertainment screen was the best I have experienced. Coach was as cramped as every other airline I have flown. Seats were not very comfortable. Food was delicious."
Cons: "Lufthansa, (and all other carriers) need to remove a couple rows of seats in economy class and give passengers the space they deserve. Seats on international flights need to be more comfortable also."
Pros: "Clean, quiet and the staff was attentive."
Cons: "The meal was average"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, never bothered sleeping people, and had a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing, best transatlantic flight I’ve had so far honestly."

Pros: "Very good customer service on flight. Love the way they treat their customers."

Cons: "lack of ventilation above the heads"
Pros: "We paid extra $200 round-trip so that my 6’4” tall husband and 6’2” son could have extra legroom. There was at least an extra foot of space between the end of their knees and the reclined seats in front of them. Wow. It was worth it! We had the aisle behind business class, and with only 3 middle seats vs 4, even our aisles were comfortably wide. The seat comfort has improved greatly from past flights on Lufthansa. The small pillows at each seat were comfy. We liked that the silverware was actually metal instead of plastic - nice! Loved loved loved the free good quality alcohol! Air temperature felt comfortable to us doing the entire flight – normally these flights are freezing cold."
Cons: "The food was so-so. Not shocking - but you asked. At least the rolls were tasty & we loved that true unsalted butter was provided!"
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"

Cons: "Delayed and therefore missing my connecting flight. Still needed to check in on time as if flight was not delayed. Being stuck in AP for 6 hours. Carry on is ltd to 8kg. My empty carry on weights 6kg. What is next with airlines? Travel without luggage? Stop gauging your customers."
Cons: "Too uncomfortable for sleep, but that’s every economy flight now."
Pros: "We had seats in last row 46 during flight to Munich .,it wasn’t enough legroom for me ,mom was ok . Because we were the last people who received dinner we didn’t get any choices , food was just poor for both for us but another passengers were satsifeted Crew was fantastic the best ever ,very pleasant, informative , happy to serve us . I love flighting Lufthansa , they have wonderful people working there ."
Cons: "Food was poor , but drinks were great."
Pros: "Crew did a great job making up time for late start"
Pros: "Loved having a real glass and real stainless fork and spoon rather than plastics. Liked the better quality (heavier) blankets and pillows. Loved the cleanliness of the plane. Impressed with the space of the Premium seats even though I did not have one. Loved having warm bread/roll with evening meal. Seat head rests could be raised to help taller people."
Cons: "Headphones in the back of the seats were two pronged and did not fit the display. Attendants offered appropriate headphones at first of flight, but I did not understand what was going on. Seats were a little hard. Some of the mesh pockets on the backs of seats were not properly attached at the bottom and items placed in the them would fall through."
Pros: "Easy checking"
Cons: "Worst hospitality. Asked for water, never came to serve. Had to remind and call couple of times. Said drinks were over specially scotch."
Pros: "Service was exceptional and prompt"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived 35 mns early, can’t beat that ( ok we had tail winds)"
Pros: "On my way to meet my granddaughter & took Lufthansa flight! Very satisfied with the overall. Crew very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Smooth flight & super landing in Munich!!!"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew is always wonderful as always."
Cons: "screaming and kicking child behind my seat, with no way to "escape". I had a severe cold and that was certainly not something I needed, I tried to get some rest, but that was impossible. The seats are getting smaller and smaller, hardly any legroom whatsoever. Also, what I had planned on bringing on the aircraft as carry on (which was my work equipment, tablet/printer etc), I had to check in as luggage because it was "overweight" meaning more than 8 kg and pay ADDITIONAL $200 (in addition to the $100 I already paid for one suitcase). I've seen many passengers with "heavy" carry on, which they were apparently allowed to bring into the cabin without any problems. I had never had to pay for any carry on, and I am seriously considering using another airline for future business travel."
Pros: "Best international flight I have been on. Staff was very accommodating."
Cons: "The wifi was not working, but we still had in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew, polite and helpful. Pillow and blanket were a nice touch. Will use them again!!"
Cons: "The food isn't that great though it wasn't horrible. Plane was extremely warm both to me and some seated around me."

Pros: "At least should have good brands of alcoholic drinks. Ugly mag limit the no of drinks consumed but keep better standard drinks"
Pros: "Outstanding service in cabin service, on time, legroom in economy."
Cons: "Seats a little hard. Very good instead of great."
Pros: "I love how Lufthansa has always been on time for me. That is why I fly with them when I can."
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Seat space is limited and if one is traveling from us to India both the planes have same entertainment channels"
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "There was plenty of room (even in economy), good food, and a friendly staff. I enjoyed having my own TV screen where I could watch movies and listen to music. I've traveled to Europe several times and Lufthansa is the best airline!"
Pros: "The crew was great and loved the pre boarding with my children."
Cons: "That had to be the most uncomfortable flight to France I have been in. There was no leg room at all."
Cons: "Everything was good not great"
Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Pros: "Crew was great, there was nobody sitting beside me so that was a big bonus. Smooth flight and the wine was pretty good."
Pros: "Generally flight attendant was nice and efficient. Excellent service and"
Cons: "Food was poor quality. Sometimes water taste like bad tap water. There are very nice crews but some of them are not. Some flight attendant bumped my knee a little when she passed by but didn’t care or noticed."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "The cree was great. Plenty of room in economy plus. Timely boarding."
Cons: "The food was hard on the edges and too spiced on the salad."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The vegan food made me very very sick for a few days. Also the lunch was a chicken cup of noodles with a turkey sandwich. No vegan option. My luggage got left in Toronto."
Pros: "Flight was confortable and crew was great we even arrived slightly early."
Cons: "One of the onboard meals was literally cup noodles with sides."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me brought on four bags and over head bins were full. This merged into my space which is too small to begin with. Boarding should control how much is brought into plane. Need more space. Airline travel is no longer fun. I wish the air line CEOs would ride in economy every once in a while."
Pros: "The $20 food voucher that was quickly offered shortly after the delay was announced."
Cons: "Subsequent announcements were confusing because notices were inconsistent."
Pros: "In-flight crew"
Cons: "Our luggage was trashed. Brand new luggage was broken with holes in the side and wheels missing. This was not cheap luggage this was 10 year warranty luggage but how do you collect on a warranty when you’re in a foreign country? So had to buy new luggage for the trip home. We’ll see if it survives their lame baggage handling."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The 777-300 ER has high ceilings. Individual outlets available for electronic devices. Clean washrooms."
Cons: "Vegan menu needs improvement. No toothbrush or slippers issued. Movie collection was outdated and contained more Asian content."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice and always had drinks available."
Cons: "Someone directly behind us had horrible body odor. Made for a sickening beginning and decision to always carry some Vicks."
Pros: "My postponed flight was fine and flight attendants great."
Cons: "I missed my original flight because there were no staff at BWI airport counter or secret Air Canada office 55 minutes from flight time. Flight was delayed 35 minutes, but no way I could check a bag or get to gate."
Cons: "Several hours late due to repairs, despite the plane originating from Air Canada's hub. Seems they should have had a spare available to not delay us the several hours that they did. As I live 2 hours from the airport, it was not until I got there to check in that I was aware of the delay."
Pros: "The flight was quick. Great crew."
Cons: "My flight out of CLT was delayed but I was still able to catch my connection in Toronto so it all worked out."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the electric/USB outlets made all the difference! By the end of the flight, my phone was charged and I was ready to see Montreal!"
Cons: "Paying for seats."
Pros: "Got seats beside washroom so they don't recline. Makes it a tiresome journey. Fast check in, great pilot"
Pros: "The flight attendant helped me find my gate which wad nice seeing I didn't have a long layover."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, flight was delayed, in the back row so couldn't recline seat, sat right next to bathroom, and the only attendant was busy all it took a long time to get her attention."
Cons: "Electrical plugs not working on both flights, so I couldn't use my laptop."
Pros: "Air Canada Cancelled the flight, which would have been ok, but their representatives left the airport instead of sticking around to help people reschedule. Their phone line was flooded with so many calls that you couldn't even stay on hold. And their email service takes at least 24hrs before you get a response. So effectively the entire airline was unavailable, even after canceling many people's vacations. I'll never fly AC again."
Cons: "Food was terrible, plane was freezing"
Pros: "I liked the airport design at Montreal."
Cons: "the whole process in Montreal seemed cold. Not really friendly compared to our domestic flight from Los Angeles to Montreal. The crew weren't very friendly at all. It's as if we were bothering them to ask a question or for them to give a smile once in a while."
Cons: "The price was too high for the amount of food you got. The taste could have been better. Wish there were more choices of food."
Pros: "Really enoyed the personal entertainment system. 12 hours is a long flight and the entertainment really helped pass the time away. It was fun seeing the flight status on the monitor and watching movies. We were fed very well. I believe we had 3 meals and a snack. Attendants came by to see if we needed more to drink too."
Cons: "It was a huge plane with about 500 people on board. Not a lot of space for getting up an walking much. Not a lot of space between seat rows. I guess that's just the way things are. Had a huge issue with checked baggage [see below] but don't know which airline was at fault although the AIr Canada employee who checked our baggage in Washington, DC said we wouldn't see our bags again until we arrived at Hirochima, our final destination."
Pros: "The beef and rice meal was really delicious and there were some good movies available for viewing. I enjoyed the cup noodles given during the flight."
Cons: "The USB port only worked for a few seconds at a time so my mobile phone would not charge in either my screen nor my neighbor's screen. Luckily I had my laptop to plug my phone into. During lift off I found someone's used headphones and a candy wrapper along with my neighbor's magazine's in my seat pocket."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Seriously? No TVs for an international flight?? They should at least tell you that in advance so you can download movies and bring your chargers. We didn't get drink service until about 2 hours into the flight. Terrible. Food was boring and bad. Finally- we had to pay for wine and beer. On a $1000 flight? I have traveled internationally at least 15 times and this was by far the worst flight yet."
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "Crew attitude and faster flight than original plan"
Cons: "Movies and food"
Cons: "There was a screaming child and nothing was done about it the entire flight."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Left almost an hour late."
Pros: "The crew is very good. Food was good. It is a short flight but I think it was good."
Pros: "Crew was moderately attentive"
Cons: "Boarding at the Toronto airport was an absolute mess. One of the "gentlemen" scanning tickets was moderately rude to people waiting to board. Which I mean, I get it, it's a rough job, but dude. I don't wanna be here any more than you do. Stow the attitude and scan the ticket. The food was eh, but that's all airline food. There isn't much space between seats so you're bumping elbows most of the ride, and during a 13 hour flight, that gets old real quick."
Cons: "Food quality was extremely poor. Cup noodle for lunch and rice porridge for breakfast is not what we paid for!!! In addition, Japanese crew cannot announce in proper Japanese She must have forgotten polite Japanese expressions ... Sad."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Affordable flight, helpful crew and convenient booking"
Cons: "Somehow meal preference did not get sent to air Canada and being vegetarian I had nothing to eat. The cheap cup noodles and sandwiches with eggs and meat were not an option."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice"
Cons: "I hated the breakfast food. One of the flight attendants pushed me when I was leaning in my seat to see something ahead of me. I thought that was very rude. She could have asked me to move."
Pros: "Good fight and crew was very good."
Pros: "Overall not a bad flight. Comfortable enough, good movie options. Food tasted could, but did not agree with my body."
Pros: "The food was good and served frequently, and boarding was quick. Connecting flights had a good amount of time between them so there was no stress about catching a flight."
Cons: "Horrible seat in the middle seat of the middle row. Very uncomfortable. Entertainment choices not as good as Cathay flights. Hot tea was consistently too cold."
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: "I had upgraded to economy plus for my trip from Toronto and asked for an aisle seat. The plane was full so I was asked to wait till I was called. When they called me back they gave me a free upgrade to first class. I am a gold status United passenger so that may have had something to do with it but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The crew was wonderful, the food was excellent and the entertainment was terrific. I totally appreciated the ability to sleep over the 13 hour trip in the bed provided. I have not had such a lovely experience in many years. I thank Air Canada for their generosity and kindness to me. Sincerely, Doryth Deisley"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I have never been able to hold a conversation with a flight attendant before, but the staff was friendly and kind. I also love the entertainment, like the games. They had some decent games and it was fun to compete with other people on the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the food too much, though. The quality was unpalatable: wilted salad, mystery meat sandwich, and cold eggs. Blegh. Also, I felt very cramped in economy. I rode other airlines that give slightly more leg room and on a 14 hour flight a little goes a long way. This one was just uncomfortable."
Pros: "ANA crew were cute, polite and kind. They even put me on an earlier flight. I'm glad it was operated by ANA, one of the world's best airline."
Cons: "Everything went so smoothly with my ANA flights. Nothing to complain."
Cons: "No vegetarian options were available for dinner or snack. Crew was extremely rude when I inquired about it, and I was not promoted to select a vegetarian option when I purchased my ticket. The breakfast was vegetarian friendly, but it was too disgusting to actually eat."
Pros: "Plenty of water was offered and fast efficient boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "I had no entertainment system for the entire 13 ½ hour flight and nothing was done"
Cons: "Food wasn't great kids meals looked better"
Pros: "The plane was new and as a passenger I really felt that. Seats were more comfortable than usual, and little things like new touchscreen media players in coach and spaces to stretch your legs in were appreciated. The crew was solid, and food was decent. Video selection was surprisingly good."
Pros: "The seats were decent - not too hard and not too cramped."
Cons: "The food was awful. The entertainment system didn't work properly which is not acceptable for a 13 hour flight. The staff didn't seem to care - rarely saw them."
Cons: "Leaving late due to an electronics issue started the ball rolling for near disaster upon arrival. Warning - unless you have more than 2 hrs on the ground at Haneda, do not takes connecting flight. You have to go thru immigration, get your checked bags, customs, and beat a 45 minute cut off by the airline in order for them to recheck your bags at your arrival terminal. We missed it, had to load onto the airport shuttle bus, unload at the domestic terminal - all without any instructions given by any anyone! WAY to much stress! Friends followed us one week later. Due to a late arrival in Haneda of over an hour, they were rerouted to a different airport costing a hotel stay, the shipping of their bags, and a bus ride the next morning. In all, it cost them over $450!!!"
Pros: "The passengers on this flight were terrific. Also the new plane was very comfortable."
Cons: "After a delayed departure from JFK we had to RUN to make our connection in Toronto. I'm traveling with my wife for our honeymoon and yet we couldn't get a seat together (we'd called customer service the week before who informed the crew). The boarding experience was rushed by airport staff and the flight crew were overly abrupt with passengers on board (bathroom requests by a mom with an infant to water requests by multiple passengers)."
Pros: "Complimentary First Class."
Cons: "Clean plane better"
Pros: "The customer service wait is extremely long especially when u get hung up on and start all over . But one man was very helpful in changing to accommodate me next day"
Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment kept dropping out so I couldn’t watch anything."
Cons: "CAs of UA were not kind as usual. It was UA, so I didn't expect nice service from first."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "Quick boarding early takeoff."
Cons: "Learning I had to check my bag in at the gate, due to plane size and no room in cabin for roll-ons."
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "Kayak's third party CS company gives me the ANA schedule while in fact I have to check in with United Airlines. Because of this, I was not able to check in on line in San Diego. Please ensure that Kayak & their affiliate are well coordinated with the information they send out to customers."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Pros: "On time schedule!"
Cons: "They never have enough food selections in First Class"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time take off"
Cons: "Nothing to report!"
Pros: "Didn't die..."
Cons: "Flight delayed, otherwise the seats were the same as all other planes I've been on. Not sure how you differientiate a consistiently bad experience between the 5 or 6 airlines that are left. Our expectations are now so low that if an airline Employee smiles at us we give their employer 5 stars. We should probably find a better way to rate the cable companies and airlines in our lives."
Pros: "Boarding was earlier than schedule."
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Cons: "I would have liked to arrive home before 12 noon but due to United delaying my fligh twice and not being able to make the connection in washington . I had to plead with them to put me on a direct flight to Newark which made me fly another carrier "American airlines". I'm not sure what the issue was for the delays but it was frustrated."
Pros: "The leg from Denver to vegas was awesome"
Cons: "The first leg didn't have any snacks and a cold continental breakfast. American and Delta's breakfast is much nicer. But worth the price for that portion of the leg."
Pros: "The crew was very nice...the entertainment choices are very good...I appreciate the Mileage Plus Card perk of Preferred Boarding in Group 2...smaller plane with 2 seats allowed good leg room and my wife and I to sit together alone."
Cons: "You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix???"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 1.5 hrs due to lack of communication, leading me to miss my connecting flight by minutes"
Pros: "Flying first class"

Cons: "That my flight was delayed and they didn't say why and the flight attendant was quite rude.."
Pros: "They lied"
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Pros: "Found what was expected from the flight. Hats up to the take off that happened on time in a busy airport."
Cons: "Aircraft is tiny and seats are narrow."
Pros: "While waiting for the flight the agent kept us informed of the status by use of a speaker - said plane just landed and once passengers get off they will get us on board - he also took control and told people that wanted to be first in line to get on board to step aside and clear the way for passengers to get off the plane - pilot let us know we would land around 25 minutes early in Chicago so we were informed - then he explained why we had to sit and wait for a gate at O'hara"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take my rolling luggage with me cause it was a small plane and there wasn't the overhead room - then I had to wait afterwards around 15 minutes to get my luggage but the price for the flight was low and they were organized in how it was handled -"
Cons: "We received a notification 2 hours before our Friday flight that it was cancelled, rescheduled for 24 hours later with no help in finding alternate options. All United employees were rude and non helpful. We were forced to switch airlines to Delta, and I will never fly United again. Very disappointing, we got into Chicago Friday night at 12PM CST, 1AM"
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."
Pros: "Wine was good and generous pours were nice."
Cons: "Turkey was terrible never offer it again. Bread was stale. Get better coffee"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "The snack"
Cons: "For the price I paid, it was a terrible seat, no room with 2 people sitting on either side."
Pros: "She was very understanding to my 37 minute layover in Denver and upgraded me to seat row 11 from seat row 31 to make sure I could get off the plane quicker. Very much appreciated and why I always fly United with my MilagePlus card. I had been on vacation for a week and had to be at work the next day."
Cons: "Very nice friendly service, keep up the good work."
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Cons: "Complimentary wifi was on the fritz"
Pros: "Everything, service, timing. Great job"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"
Pros: "It was great! slept from take off until landing."
Pros: "They Canceled My and did not refund my money Never will use United Ever Again Scum Buckets"
Cons: "Give me my money back"
