At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled, crew was friendly, we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours and absolutely no info provided to customers about what was going on and if/when flight would depart."
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"

Cons: "Cramped not much leg room"
Pros: "Delta flights are usually on time and the staff is always polite and helpful"
Cons: "Both my departure and arrival flight were delayed and I was not please with delay."
Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding, flight, landing"
Cons: "Baggage claim was unmanned Ground transportation was awful Delta & all Harrisburg staff was not responsive, for example w/baggage unmanned a sign said "go to ticket counter" when I got to ticket counter Delta agent didn't notice me in Sky Priority line for 5 minutes because she was texting on her personal cellphone."

Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and courteous the plane was very comfortable!"

Cons: "the bathrooms were gross"
Pros: "Did not wait for luggage."
Cons: "Food was marginal. Equipment had low ceiling under carry on shelf. No entertainment."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "Great entertainment offering plus liked that I was able to charge my phone at the same time."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Cons: "All went well"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. The Airbus plane has enough legroom for tall persons."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "On time departure; staff friendly; no security delays other than TSA now requires taking tablets out of luggage. Almonds instead of peanuts is a welcome change."
Cons: "Leg room on the regional jets. If the airlines narrow the space between seats any more, I will not fit into the seats. I am not overweight, just tall (6’4”). Luckily, the person in the seat in front of me did not recline their seat."
Cons: "Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water."
Pros: "Service and staff"
Cons: "Delay over one hour."
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "Being able to watch a movie on the plane"
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Pros: "The plan had Wi-Fi and free movies. Plugs for the phones"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."

Cons: "All positive."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "The Delta flight service was much better than the Air France flight I took on the previous leg."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "Left on time. No turbulence."
Cons: "Lost my luggage."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."
Pros: "Crew was nice, too short of a flight to figure out more"
Cons: "no chance to try. Can’t pick a special meal in short term flights and snacks are not vegan"
Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seated in the last row and non adjustable seating, so very little leg room. Dis-enbarkment was very slow."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "Leg space."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "The airbus 380 was great and the staff very nice"
Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."
Pros: "Good service at gate and on board"
Pros: "Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "Nothing much to add for a short journey."
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"
Pros: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Pros: "I like the service of AF"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "The meal."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "The whole flight from Philadelphia to Rome was on American Airlines, not British Air. This was confusing at first and made it difficult to know what airline desk I needed to check into, but once that was clear it all went smoothly. The dinner was mediocre and the breakfast terrible."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, no additional charge for wine, food was good"
Cons: "we were packed in like sardines on American airways ..NOT British airways. I’ve flown overseas on European flights before and there is more attention to comfort. We sat in front of the lavatory and could not sleep because every time someone used it, the light flashed in our eyes and the flush was quite loud. I paid extra for the seats we had but did not know they were right by noisy bright rest room."
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No advance check in left me waiting in line at my connection in order to get a center seat in the middle of a group. There’s no excuse for manual check in in this day and age."
Cons: "Never taken!!!"
Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work. We had no options to pass the time for an eight hour flight. The crew was unconcerned about the problem. They seemed grumpy!! This plane should not be used for long haul flights."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "Crew made the best of a bad situation: originally planned plane with sold-out seats replaced by a smaller one -- BAD! Extra kudos for crew for creative swapping to move me to an emergency row seat when I discovered that my **extra-charge** aisle seat was damaged and unusable. Food & beverage service -- adequate, timely (though some nutrition concerns.) Good, current entertainment selections."
Cons: "The obvious -- the switch to a smaller plane, causing some passengers great distress; not realizing that a sold seat was damaged; selling me that damaged seat, and at a premium. Food nutrition -- tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. Bathrooms -- became rather smelly and unkempt toward last 1/4th of 9+ hour flight."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Cons: "Either Webjet or BritishAir failed to notify our party in advance to allow a reasonable accommodation of our fully paid requirements."
Pros: "I really liked the seats. Very comfortable especially how far they reckoned and the height of the backrest was perfect for a petite person like myself. Usually they are too tall and the headrest forces my head down. Also amazing selection of movies! Wow, thank you."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "Huge clean plane"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Good TV's. Great service. Good food."
Cons: "It was long"
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "Reasonably large leg room and overhead"
Cons: "Five times they tried to get us to pay for a seat assignment (even after they had assigned seats). Paying $32 for "priority" boarding is rediculous?"
Pros: "Good flight. No wait for the luggage,it was deplaned before we reached the claim area."
Cons: "Check in was a little confusing. The line for security was extremely long. After it was a breeze."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and we departed on time and arrived on schedule-fllight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks were ok but main meal could have been better- suggest u go back to box meal such as a sandwich and piece of fruit."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was generally happy and friendly."
Cons: "No video on a transcontinental 767?? Are you kidding? Stupid excuse for being 2hrs late due to mechanical. They blamed it on something completely foreseeable and plannable. This plane is older than the plan I took my first flight on as a kid in 1984. I thought united was bad but then I experienced American. At least the crew were not jerks."
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Cons: "super slow touchscreen response. menu of entertainment difficult to navigate and unimpressive content"
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly smooth, along with the 8 hour flight from NYC to Rome, Italy. Perhaps the best flight I've ever had."
Cons: "The food wasn't all that good but I didn't have high expectations."
Pros: "They finally got us there."
Cons: "The airplane broke on the ramp and they made is sit in the airplane while the tempeture rose to about 100 degrees. I think someone was about to pass out before they realized they had to get us off. Then we were over 4 hours late departing while they were getting another plane"
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "There were too many gate changes ."
Pros: "The crew was great. Not some of the gate agents."
Cons: "Re-routing us better not to miss the flight."
Cons: "Flight turned around after 2 hours, we were delayed 7.5 hours and missed an entire day in Rome. Instead of landing at 8 AM, we landed closer to 4 PM."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "This flight was booked as a Lufthansa flight, but the actual flight was United. It was OK, but not the service or comfort when I flew Lufthansa in the past."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not navigate. Food was too salty. Crew was not very pleasant-annoyed when I was in the bathroom and missed service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Bathrooms remained clean the entire flight."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Ran out of croissants in the morning."
Pros: "Amazing service, great crew. love was our stewardess and she took good care and watched over my daughter."
Cons: "Not much, truly an amazing experience"
Cons: "The airline should have reviewed who was delayed on their connection and wait at least 5-10 minutes to accommodate me for a delayed connection. We ended up at the gate for the final leg of my flight and the door closed 30 seconds prior. Very poor internal communications and lack of customer care."
Pros: "Boarding fast"
Cons: "Bus took forever"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, even the landing and take off. Cudos to the pilots. Liked that we were given a pillow and blanket (FREE). The food was good and the crew was pleasant. I loved that we had FREE movies and TV programs to watch with FREE earphones."
Cons: "The seating is AWFUL for economy section. For this reason I will never take a flight over 2 hours again. A nine hour flight is sheer torture!!!! Plus I was freezing the whole time, even with a jacket with a hood, two blankets, two pillows. Just a horrible situation."
Pros: "Drastically better"
Pros: "On time, good food service, free wine, and nice stewardesses"
Cons: "Still hate sleeping in seats. Maybe, one day I can do first class!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and generally concerned with our well-being."
Cons: "Economy seats were not terribly comfortable, but that is not unusual."
Cons: "Awful experience. Flight was delayed two hours, employees are rude and we got NOTHING on flight"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Delays are so very common on United."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."
Pros: "Everything went as planned. Professional friendly crew with good rapport! Cabin felt spacious and seats were just right. The food and entertainment packages were quality, appropriate and functioning. The crew put us on a strict schedule allowing us time to sleep and refresh. Toiletries clean and no lines. Just an overall lovely flight!"
Pros: "Best flight to Italy from the states for me in 4 visits over 18 year span. Very efficient and courteous attendants, above average food ( for airline food), complimentary wine, even the seating was not as cramped as I have endured ( on NW Airlines- worst flight experience ever in 2005.)"
Cons: "I have not one complaint"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5hrs and added multiple connecting flights that I didn’t need. I had a 6am flight and didn’t get to my destination until 11pm."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Pros: "I liked a straight nonstop flight. Clean and comfortable."
Cons: ""Free WiFi, not free.""
Cons: "United uses very old and inadequate planes for a route between two major financial centers. No plugs for energy, very bad entretaiment videos, no music, unpleasant crew....this was my last try for the coming years, as I sent same reviews before....!"
Cons: "Overhead light did not work properly."
Pros: "The only positive to this flight was that after sitting on hold with United's customer service, it took less than 10 minutes for them to grant me a refund."
Cons: "I ended up backing out of this flight and booking out of a different airport and with a different airline bc apparently this flight with United has been seriously delayed (4+ hours) multiple times before. We were told that the flight was cancelled for the 2 days prior."
Cons: "Cramped. Freezing on flight"
Pros: "Only good thing was the crew. They were good natured even though a roundtrio flight if six hours took 25 because of delay after delay"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "The flight crew and gate personnel were courteous and professional., as were theTSA workers."
Cons: "Seating was crowded and uncomfortable. My seat wouldn't recline."
Pros: "I was pleased with the nonstop option from Chattanooga to Chicago."
Cons: "I have a bag that I have travelled with as a very on for years and I know that it fits in the overhead compartments of this size plane, but on both outbound and inbound I was made to gate check. Upon boarding there was plenty of room in the bins. The waiting at the end of each flight made the gateway crowded and replanting inefficient. Either have all bags checked upon check in with stricter guidelines or put overhead items into a lottery system."
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "No room for bags"
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Food was very good, almost restaurant-level. Wine selection was good as well"
Cons: "While on the plane at the gate, had to wait 20 mins for someone to hang my jacket (had to ask and the person came back 5 mins later) despite the fact that the attendant immediately checked on the guy next to me when he sat down, who apparently had status with United (attendant ignored me). I guess a $7,000 fare doesn't warrant special attention. I had to ask the same attendant for other items at times, but he'd forget and I'd have to ask someone else. Also, the seats were decent yet a bit crowded IMHO. I'm 5'10" and my feet were crammed up against the front of the space when fully reclined. The width of the seat area was a bit tight as well. Finally, they have 2 heads (toilets) that serve both the business class section ( maybe 50 people) as well as the front of economy. One of the pilots was waiting at the same time as me and agreed that it was a pretty questionable layout for the number of seats covered. All in all, not my favorite airline and nothing on this trip so far changed that view."
Pros: "The helpfulness of the representative at HNL."
Cons: "Last minute 17 hr "delay" Screwed out of an entire day in Hawaii. Dream vacation ruined. No car, no hotel, no time to see Honolulu. Awful."
Pros: "It was a good flight, short but good."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - the pretzel packs looked like they were from 2007 and stale but I don't care about that. The pilots landing there and back were like we landed on clouds - not a single bump or jolt. The flights left on time and arrived early. The staff at gate and plane were so helpful and happy and knew how to do their jobs and not opposed to doing it with a smile. I have flown over the world and these two flights on united were the best."
Cons: "The important things were perfect - the pretzels were stale but who really cares about pretzels! The pilot is the most important and they were great!"
Pros: "Crazy weather, scary turbulence!!!"
Cons: "Flight 5 hours late due to bad weather. Not their fault"
Pros: "Air traffic control stopped all flights to Chicago, so my itinerary got changed and ended up taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Because it didn't go anywhere."
Pros: "My snack box"
Cons: "I purchased wifi for the flight to stream entertainment. Plugged my Ipad into the charger only to realize the charger was broken. So within an hour I was unable to use the wifi I paid 16ish dollars to use the whole flight bc they advertised "outlets in every chair" wasn't working."
Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."
Cons: "Unreliability of airline service, 7-hour delay! Food is horrible."
Pros: "Getting to Rome on time"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Smooth flights"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. Staff seemed uninterested in passengers. Not compassionate."
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
