Cons: "I was pleased with all."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the meals were pretty good"
Cons: "Every time I'm on an airplane I'm seated next to several really sick people.. I know this isn't something you can control but it really reduces the comfort any healthy individual can have.

Pros: "pleasant service. no surprises, delays , etc. thank you."
Cons: "why would they call it a 'hindu meal' if it includes meat?! pilot & crew a bit hard to understand when they spoke english - thick accent."

Pros: "The seat had good width since I am 6"1 , unlike most American airline the comfort level is much better, not cramped."
Cons: "Not much all good"
Pros: "ANA have, as usual, good service throughout, very good entertainment selection and food is good. The 787 is fairly spacious and comfortable."

We were truly blown away and so grateful for the wonderful service and welcome."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Once the crew got the meals out of the way you didn't see them (at least in our section). You could go to the galley for water or a snack etc. Most airlines I've been on seem to bring drinks, etc to seats every once in a while."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly as expected from Cathay. The aircraft was substituted from the scheduled A350-800 to an A330 but it still had lie flat seats, just not as nice. The crew was very apologetic for the last minute schedule change."
Cons: "Nothing can be done about the aircraft swap, I’m happy they swapped with an aircraft with lie flat seats as I was exhausted and needed the rest before landing in HKG."
Pros: "Entertainment option"
Cons: "4hr to repair a tire, and crew rest limitation made extra stop at Taipei"
Pros: "Hardware was excellent. One of the most comfortable First Class seats for sure."
Cons: "CX first class is designed more for individual travelers so for couples who want to sit beside one another there will be an aisle in between them. The Boston BA lounge is horrific and depressing so it should be avoided."
Pros: "I like the food, the service, and the smooth flight (as always with Cathay). My Go-To Airline! Very practical too, without compromising quality."
Cons: "Coach Seats... Seems to be getting smaller over time."
Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"

Pros: "Smooth and pleasant flight with no interruptions which enabled sleep on a long overnight flight. The plane was older than on the previous flight from Melbourne to Hong Kong and was noticably short on toilets for the number of passengers."
Cons: "Food was mediocre in flavour and variety."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, in flight service and comfort."
Cons: "Entertainment system seems old, latest movies are not there and the flight maps interface looks like as of it is from the 2000s."

Pros: "Great service and smiley staff"
Cons: "the fact that it's a 14 hour flight, i hope someone invents a faster plane soon."
Cons: "Delayed flight after waiting for hours in Hongkong. The male flight attendant was inefficient. Did not check on passenger’s concern even after it was brought to his attention. Simple request for water took forever to arrive. Did not like meal so requested a cup of noodle instead but the noodle never arrived. It is stated in their menu that snacks like cup of noodle is available through out the flight but only when you stand up and get it from them. Very poor service. I will never fly Cathay Pacific again. That will be the first and the last."

Cons: "The security staff and their approach and way of communicating"
Pros: "The staffs were ok. They did everything on the limited power they were given."

Cons: "The crew. I will never fly with this airline again"
Cons: "food was horrible. Please improve the quality and quantity."
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "I had requested special vegetarian meal. Although I did receive this meal, it was barely a meal, the full course was not provided. Only the main course and salad was provided. The bread(bun) and dessert were missing. It's not clear to me why vegetarians would be deprived of a full course meal."
Cons: "Mediocre online check in experience! Their website does not accept payments for "upgrading" to an exit row seat. At the time of check in the only seat left available was an exit row so I could not proceed. Also, their airplanes are not equipped with Wi-Fi - quite unfortunate when you're flying 16 hrs from HK to NYC!"
Cons: "Hindi selection of movies was not good"
Cons: "Late boarding and departures from LA to CGK and from CGK to LA. Seats were uncomfortable for 14 hours flight. Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef. Flight attendant yelled out loud to tell the passenger to seat down instead of approach the passenger."
Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."
Cons: "We missed our connection because Cathay was delayed. They booked us in a nice hotel in Hong Kong but failed to reimburse us for food as promised. In fact, no one was able to prove us with proper information on how to handle refunds. The next flight was late over an hour. No reason provided. Overall, no one knows what's up and any inconveniences are the customer's problem to deal with."
Pros: "entertainment was more than sufficient and was adequately nourished for a long flight"
Cons: "full flight which felt more crowded than Cathay flights I've taken in the past"
Cons: "Omelette with chicken stil bland."

Pros: "Went up and down as planned."

Will never use Chicago as a connector again
Pros: "comfortable seats, quick flight"
Cons: "in-seat entertainment and a full salami sandwich instead of half for snack"
Pros: "There was nothing really special or to write home about on this particular Lufthansa flight: it got us there safely and ahead of schedule, albeit, uncomfortably (seats were extremely thin and uncomfortable) and the pitch/distance between seat rows was extremely short & cramped.."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable; they were extremely thin and uncomfortable--and airline could give more legroom/pitch between seats."
Pros: "We ran into a passport problem and they sent Wilis Otieno back home to Nairobi instead of helping him resolve it. I made a dozen phone calls to no avail. Very disappointed."
Pros: "I loved the abundance of movies you can choose from."
Cons: "I don't know."
Cons: "Flight from dc to Frankfurt was delayed 4 hours. Flight from Frankfurt to Amman was cancelled and rebooked for the next morning."
Cons: "The seat to be more comfortable really for me wasn’t I fly all the time but this year I don’t know the space between me and the front seats was very small. I fly last year and was much better"
Pros: "The economy seat was surprisingly comfortable"
Pros: "The wheel chair service at Munich airport was excellent. She received us at the door, helped us find a connection after we lost our flight and communicating every step and giving us First Class service on coach. Thank you!"

Pros: "Every thing is excillent"
Pros: "Good leg room in aircraft and comfortable seating."
Cons: "My checkedin baggage did not reach the final destination and was delayed by 24 hours. Further, when my baggage did reach, one suitcase was damaged. Did not expect this from Luftansa."

Cons: "Items were taken from my suitcase, did not get a meal of my choice"
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"
Pros: "Very helpful crew, great service. Will fly again."
Cons: "Almost missed connecting flight had to run hard to make it. Airline did nothing to assure us that we will make it to next flight. Was very stressful, can do better."
Cons: "One of the restrooms was out of service for most of the flight. The other ran out of toilet paper."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Pros: "Nice airplane, good crew, nice bite to eat."
Pros: "Got off to a late start, should have been an omen."
Cons: "Worst crew, at one point when they start serving lunch they left like 10 people waiting and waiting to be served also, they start to put together some lunch one by one, took maybe another 1/2 hour for some people to get food, i was the last one to get served but when they got some leftovers from some other people they put that on my tray for me, they run out of food in the plane, of course i refused the lunch but no other option for me was given, again WORST crew ever, never flight Lufthansa again, NEVER"
Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airlines"
Cons: "I find that bigger airplanes are more organized than the small ones."
Cons: "Istanbul-frankfurt airline 2 hours delayed,that way miss a flight Frankfurt-toronto we said Lufthansa officer,officer said other flight tomorrow morning, final,no hotel,no flight,my wife and two kids sleep on the chair,perfect right"

Cons: "Seats are cramped, at the mercy of people in front and behind you in terms of comfort."
Cons: "The food was pretty dull."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough and the food was ok. Crew was great and served water and juice so many times during the flight! That was really good!"
Cons: "Movie selection was old and many movies aren't of interest. I tried to purchase something on the plane and the card reader didn't work. Lufthansa should update those card readers! Seats are becoming smaller and thinner which means more uncomfortable than they were already."
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Pros: "I paid an additional fee for a seat with more legroom....a great investment! Also, crew members were very attentive and courteous."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Lots of food for such a short flight."
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"
Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"
Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."
Cons: "LH761 was late by an hour and a half. I was not given help to get to my connecting flight LH438."
Pros: "Great Crew excellent service"
Cons: "Row seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."
Cons: "I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways"
Pros: "Courteous and professional."

Pros: "We loved business class! The service was the best"
Pros: "The crew was very good and very attentive!"
Cons: "The boarding process.... we had to change gates kind of last minute and from there on it was a bit chaotic ... we boarded via buses and then had to climb stairs to enter our airplane."
Pros: "Crew attentive"
Cons: "Check in REALLY slow. Seat space unacceptably too small. Couldn’t hear entertainment sound over engine noise with earphones so could not use entertainment. Need better earphones. Chair wouldn’t recline."
Pros: "Very short flight so not much to comment."
Cons: "Not that I didn’t like, but there was no entertainment and no beverage on this flight. Maybe add a “N/A” as an option in the survey. Flight was delayed, but we were kept updated."
Pros: "Entertainment System, Crew"
Cons: "Washroom faucet didn't work so no one could wash their hands."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The fact I had to rent a car and drove home for 6 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment. GoGo did not want to work for me at 1 he before arrival."
Cons: "Give me a coupon for food before takeoff or on arrival. Skip the CupofNoodles. After Japan and Shanghai, cup of noodles seem really in bad taste."
Pros: "Air Canadas flights were on time and run very well. Wasn't impressed with the food choices but felt that what was provided was of good quality."
Cons: "My girlfriend has a nut allergy and we asked if a particular bread contained nuts and flight attendant basically said they don't know what's in the food. I don't think that's acceptable."
Pros: "They do not have an office or ticket desk in Pudong airport which made early arrival into this airport difficult. No one answered the phone at the Very little English is spoken here"
Pros: "AC 018 takes the shortest route from Shanghai to Montreal. The check in and boarding were like a breeze. Cabin was clean, staff were amiable and hard working. The variety of drinks were plenty, the food matched the standard of cost efficiency flight ticket so how could you complain it? On board TV/Movie has new coming features such as HBO's Game of The Thorne, season 7. It was a comfortable and pleasant journey with the team of AC 018. Merci beaucoup!"
Pros: "Flight was nice and quick."
Cons: "Not sure if the plane was fully clean (had an old smell to it); plane was also packed."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."
Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"
Pros: "I had a medical incident and air Canada moved me to a more comfortable seat and gave me oxygen to help me recover. Also the stuardesses all were really nice and made it their priority to make sure I was doing OK through the rest of the flight"
Cons: "There was no designated person as a medical professional to handle emergency situations. an emergency situation can occur anytime. luckily there was a passenger aboard who knew what to do I think his name was Dave you should give him thanks."
Pros: "Check in and out is very smooth."
Cons: "The long layover."
Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."
Pros: "I liked that is an all business carrier, the steward was personable and totally on charged. For a short flight it was excellent !!"
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was great from Montreal to Toronto on wide body plane."
Cons: "The airport in Toronto where they crammed about 10 gates together in a small area with no air conditioning (it seemed). Also flight was delayed about an hour so had to wait in horrible conditions with no seats for a long time."
Pros: "the plane crew were pleasant and kept us posted as to what was happening and causing us to be even later to leave."
Cons: "The staff on the ground were disorganized, uninformed, frazzled, dismissive and boarded us 1 hour late with no updates on why we were not boarding on time. Our flight was just sitting there on the ground. when people asked they blew us off. we were also crowded into the last, very narrow, terminal area in the Toronto airport (F89-F99 area). Too many flights departing at the same time, created limited space to sit/stand. One passenger pasted out, and had a seizure upon hitting the floor face first, because of the stuffed space, and lack of air movement and available seats. They did have a fan in the area but it didnt do much to circulate air. Once we boarded an hour late, the ground crew were nowhere to be found. We waited 30min on the plane for crew to board our luggage. We were told they left the area to work somewhere else, and would be back soon. Ugh! I would not fly Air Canada again, esp through Toronto again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No air conditioning made it uncomfortable"
Pros: "Young air hostess was very goid"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great attention from staff towards patrons."
Cons: "The late boarding, the delay to liftoff"
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Stewardess was friendly Movies were good Relatively room and clean Customs in Vancouver was awesome!!!"
Cons: "Steward getting on the plane in Shanghai had an attitude, was actually a jerk Food was not very appetizing"
Pros: "The landing of the plane was good and one flight attendant was courteous. The movie options were pretty good. At least the wine was free."
Cons: "The check-in counter in DCA was AWFUL with only two people running and no kiosks working. They were rude and didn't listen to us either. When we got to the food part, it was disguisting. First of all, I am vegetarian but even if I ate meat, I wouldnt have eaten it. So I just ate bread for the 13 hour flight. Besides one flight attendant, the rest were rude, harsh and had a generally bad attitude. AIr Canada has BY FAR been the worst travel experience for me thus far. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Its entertainment"
Cons: "very uncomfortable coach seats and 4 hour delay in Vancouver airport"
Pros: "Great crew and service. Seats were comfortable for tall people."
Cons: "Delays for both international flights. Food made us sick."
Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."
Pros: "No protection from noise. Gave up watching movies."
Cons: "Better earphone"
Cons: "Long wait in the narrow terminals - no seats, hot"
Cons: "Not sure if this is an Air Canada or a Toronto Pearson Airport issue, but the gate we flew out of was in a very small area with very limited seating. Long delay and no staff to assist or inform the passengers of the schedule delay. We will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "comfortable environment and quality service."
Cons: "Flight delayed half hour, rush through all the steps, we are the first one get to the plane. But all the other people can not make it because we sit at near front and started the rush earlier. However, all of our checked luggage so can not make it. We are waiting for delivery on the next day. This type of short connection of international flight should not be arranged as we told you and AC when you told us the original booking was changed due to AC flight modification."
Pros: "First time on Air Canada - I was pleasantly surprised on how well my flight went... I will definitely travel on Air Canada in the future..."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The tiny little plane is pretty standard for going to and from Cleveland but the boarding gate was in a shack outside the main airport with almost no seating and horrible aesthetics. The flight attendant was rude and way to large (obese) to be on such a small airplane. It's likely we had to pay a fuel surcharge just to move her alone. I'm not being mean, but this flight was just terrible overall."
Cons: "Small plane a lot of confusion at airport with gate attendant."
Pros: "Weather was nice so it was not due to weather. We had to stay in Toronto overnight."
Pros: "bigger seats than most average asian airlines"
Cons: "service is poor. have been on both economy and busines class in air canada and you are treated very differently. the staff on economy treat you indifferently and have a little chip of their shoulder. the food is awful and most flights you have to pay for food, even for international flights, which is apparently against the law as they are obligated to serving food. i had to pay for a bowl of noodles - omg. essentially it is really about service. Dismal. It is noted they often win north american awards for their service. If anyone has flown american airlines - yes it may be the best of the worst. So if you have an option, skip it altogether. Try Cathay / Qatar / Singapore airlines wow!"
Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Pros: "On both legs of our flight to and from O'Hare to China, we had delays. The first was due to an ice storm in Toronto, where we changed planes, then the second due to compromised air space over the China Sea that Air Canada wisely chose to delay our flight rather than take a risk. The delays were handled professionally and pleasantly. It wasn't their fault. The agents and flight attendants were very attentive in trying to help us get our connecting flights, such as switching us to the front of the plane before landing so we could get off quickly. Alas, it didn't work, but they tried. Our checked bags came off quickly. I felt that we had more legroom on our AC flights than I have had recently on American aircrafts. Temperature was comfortable. We were regularly given water, drinks, and we had complementary meals with beer or wine. Food was pretty average, but the beverages were good. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "Crew and everything was excellent"
Cons: "Plane was old and scary"
Cons: "Horror show security measures in the Toronto airport were the worst I had ever experienced, together with about an hour wait in the plane and finally flying in a propeller plane made this the worst air travel experience of my life"
Cons: "Boarding in Shanghai was very unorganized. Business class passengers were mixed in with economy class when boarding!"
Cons: "Crew and service mediocre."
Cons: "Long delay for such a short flight with not enough communication."
Seating less than desirable, multiple seats on the plane open w no option to change
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "Cramped old A319,totally packed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Turbulence, but other than that it was quick"
Cons: "The gate changed twice and the plane was a little cramped and not full. A smaller more spacious plane would have been more comfortable experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed & cancelled. Unable to rebooked until evening of next day. Was easier to rent a car & drive home"
Pros: "Had the whole of 3 seats to myself. Was a fast and pleasant and direct flight. Flight attendants gave me the option to take the row. Nice of her."
Cons: "Food selection and tastiness ... room for improvement."
Cons: "We had to deplane due to a 2+ hour delay for an air conditioning maintenance problem. For the 50 minute flight I would have rather gotten to Cleveland on time without air conditioning."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival!!"
Cons: "Immigration at O'Hare was good and speedy, transfer from another era (long lines for shuttles, cumbersome drive to other terminal, long security lines). Will try to avoid layovers there in future if possible. UA plane was ridiculously tight after the Swiss Air experience."
Cons: "Delayed flight, seat didn’t recline"
Pros: "the crew was amazing and pleasant."
Cons: "everything went well and what i was expecting."
Pros: "Bad service Unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Considerate staff and crew."
Cons: "My flight on Monday night was delayed til Tuesday morning, at the last minute, defeating the whole purpose of my trip"
Pros: "Ease of changing flights same day"
Cons: "Not having to change my entire reservation I had to go through a totally different airport that I was unfamiliar and got to my destination 4 hours later than original plain"
Pros: "Comfort was great"
Cons: "Mu flight got delayed...but that wasn't in anyone's control so...."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience from the onsite until the landing."
Cons: "Better communication from the beginning and feedback about what was actually going on would have been helpful."
Cons: "Horrible, no entertainment, no food on a long flight, and even though we paid extra for comfort seating ours were more cramped than those around us. Reminded us of why we haven't flown United for years"
Pros: "Wi-Fi with free entertainment on wireless devices, drink service"
Cons: "Cramped seats, pretzels were kind of bland"
Pros: "Crew really polite and nice"
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "Couldn’t control the temperature. It was freezing then burning up."
Pros: "Nothing, to be honest."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years."
Pros: "Free DirecTV due to broken wifi"
Cons: "Plane was roasting even after turning down, seat pitch is now smallest I've had (their app lied)"
Pros: "Entertainment, and leg space."
Cons: "Full plane, long wait to use lavatory. Crew was good, but should have upped their game under the circumstances, especially with regards to keeping the lavatory clean. The noodles for breakfast turned out to be porridge, and went straight to the waste basket."
Pros: "Again, the staff & assistance received were extremely pleasant & professional from the rebooking process & the boarding & deboarding process to the luggage retrieval were excellent. I could not have made this trip without all their help."
Cons: "These planes are so small & the seating is so tight that it makes the trip very uncomfortable especially for someone with special needs who might no be able to afford the extra expenses."
Pros: "On time. Didn't have to wait that long for luggages to come out.."
Cons: "Flight attendant in United just standing idly, doesn't help you with carryons. No free meal for connecting flights with United even though it's meal time unlike when you are in one airlinr all through your international flight."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and on schedule,"
Cons: "The cost of a one way ticket was more than a return flight The entertainment system did not work, no movies were accessible on the entire plane for the 12 hour flight. Meals were OK but nothing fantastic to write home about Seat were crowded for eccomomy class, I flew on Emirates on my way to Zurich, for 60% of this flight cost, and would give them a solid 9 or 10 rating our of 10. This was an old plane, 747 Jumbo, Looked tired and was loud inside."
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Hour plus late departing as attendants did not show up to work on time. No coffee brewed on 7:30 AM flight. Probably because of crews late arrival"
Pros: "Smooth, on time service"
Cons: "Hate Dish instead of on demand, paid $15 for wifi and it didn't work for the entire flight. No power plugs past row 22"
Pros: "Food and service not bad. Flight on time."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. One snarky light attendant. Little leg room. Terrible selection of films for all passengers. Have to get United app on ground--need this to be communicated better, on website, before boarding, and onboard."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Delayed twice - ostensibly because gate not available, but I was in gate area and could see that the gate was not occupied. More candidness would have been appreciated. Insufficient charging stations in United gate area in Newark. Lots of folks wanting to charge phones and other electronics, but only one charging kiosk for hundreds of folks waiting to board two flights."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very courteous and professional. And things ran very smoothly. My only very minor issue was regarding the captain. First of all, he got us there safe and sound with very little turbulence and on time; however, usually on those cross-country flights, the captain often announces interesting geographical features as we fly over them. That didn't happen and I missed it. Well, I was a geography major and I am a teacher, so from my perspective, it seemed like a missed opportunity."
Pros: "short duration"
Cons: "So short that somehow I didn't get a cup of water..I know they started to serve it but maybe they missed our row, maybe turbulence ended service by then.. I don't know why but I was overheated and very thirsty."
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Pros: "The woman who helped me check in"
Cons: "The horribly uncomfortable seat and crowded conditions plus it was really hot as we waited to take off and as we got off."
Pros: "Friendly staff. More leg room on United express"
Cons: "Snack options not good. Wi-Fi connection not good for United app and the free movies didn't work."
Cons: "She ddle from one gate to other horrible...having to go out into the cold wet weather...waiting for a elevator...not good"
Pros: "I don't like the small planes United uses."
Pros: "First id like to say i got a cheaper rate on Kayak then i did on United Airlines website savings over 100 dollars. Id also like to say thank you for hooking me up with economy plus seats that include outlets to charge your devices. A+ in my book i even got an exit rox on my way home all to myself! Definitely will be using Kayak in the future."
Cons: "The United Airlines staff inside O'Hare. All but one were very rude to me for no reason. Maybe thats just a Chicago thing to have an attitude with everyone but im pretty sure it was just these 2 individuals."
Cons: "I had a flight from Los Angeles to Cleveland with a stop in Chicago on December 29, 2016; however, both flights were delayed. I am contacting customer care for compensation due to a severe delay for the departure and arrival for my flight from Chicago to Cleveland (Flight 786). I also wanted to report a very disappointing experience with the representatives at 1-800-864-8331. I was supposed to arrive at Cleveland, OH (CLE) on December 29, 2016 by 7:30 PM. However, it was closer to 11:20 PM when we finally arrived. The flight was delayed over an hour for departure when they announced the plane was not even ready and present at the gate. Due to this delay, we were not able to land on Cleveland, OH (CLE) because of snow on the runway. We circled Cleveland for roughly 40 minutes and then got redirected to the Detroit. We would've avoided the snow if the flight departed on time since the snow did not hit Cleveland until the delayed flight was airborne. We then landed in Detroit and spent another hour and a half in Detroit. At this time, I called the representatives at United and requested a refund. The representative completely understood my situation and said I would be refunded the full amount to my original payment method. She also assured me that I did not need a case number and that other representatives would be able to look up this information through my confirmation number. This was not the case when I contacted United again to see the progress on the refund. They said there were no annotations and that they could not provide a refund. They advised me that the previous representative had lied to me. While the flight experience caused me to miss the rehearsal dinner and bachelor party for a close friend I served with in the Army and almost caused me to miss the wedding, I feel very cheated and trashed for being lied to by your employees regarding my refund and its validity. This experience has left a very bad taste regarding United Airline's integrity and values."
Cons: "I've never been on a flight with so many screaming children and mothers walking up and down the aisle, dispersing the screaming. Awful flight."
Pros: "Crew service,food was excellent, entertain was ok except the audio no music selection to cannot choose individual music cannot forward or playback songs but overall it was an excellent flight especially Shanghai to Sfo trip"
Pros: "Advised at outset that flight might be a bit bumpy so prepared us and no drink service. I just slept."
Cons: "Delayed flight missed connection and had to a different flight then a two hour bus ride. Delaying my day by 6 hours. Also the gate changed without any announcement or communication via email or text by the airline."
Pros: "Crew members are nice and attentive."
Cons: "Entertainment: they took away personal screen but then the "new" personal device entertainment option never worked on our roundtrip flight SFO-PVG. The movie froze every 10-15min even on their own big screen. Food was very disappointing even by airline food standard. I was not expecting it to be great food but hey at least provide some options with decent taste please? Comfort: Seats are tight and you will have very minimal space and an awkward position if the person in front of you recline the seat but you don't. Flight is old and seats are uncomfortable. Very little leg room"
Pros: "Long day flying already. Many flights to CLE were delayed, but ours was cancelled. The staff was kind enough to get my mom a seat on another flight that day, which was good as she was out of medication after traveling two weeks. 3 of us had to fly standby. The staff said we would automatically be added to the next flight's standby list if we ddin't make it. That was bad information - it didn't happen."
Cons: "Disapointed with the service and lack of accommodation after our flight was cancelled."
Cons: "We were in Cleveland and our flight got cancelled. We confirmed a flight out of Canton. Drove the hour only to find that flight to be cancelled also. Drive from Canton to Chicago and arrived at about 2 in the morning. We had tried to change our flight to leave two days earlier. The fee for changing flights was more than the tickets were initially but when you cancel it its tough break for us."
Pros: "The price was great, you accomodated my service dog and everything was on time and smooth. All in all, great experience. And i have passed out from fear of flying before, so this says something!!"
Cons: "It took a while to board and the crew on my first flight was not informed of my service animal. They wanted her to go in her bag but they left me alone after i explained and there was no issue on the return flight. I also think a complimentary snack on a 5hr flight is a good idea and can go a log way..."
Pros: "It wasn't over crowded."
Cons: "When arriving to the airport it was a bit confusing first finding where to get our connecting flight, that may have been an airport problem. But once we got to the right gate our plane was cancel or re-gated/scheduled three times. We had to walk all over the airport with less and less time to spare to make our flight out. When asking for direction or where to go we could never get a straight answer, it seem as if no one knew where to send us. I felt if I was being herded and hustled on getting a flight home, I had no choice in the matter of getting my flight out. If it wasn't for another passenger flying on the same plane we may have missed our flight all together because she was getting alerts on her phone for changes or updates. Once on the flight the air-condition was linking on one of our seat and we were first told to put a blanket over our head until take off, then we saw some empty seats so we asked to move. Once arriving at Cleveland airport we only discover our luggage had not arrived yet, not only did it not arrive we were told it had not yet left London Hethrow Airport and we would maybe get it in 24 hours. This was a problem because some of our personals we needed were in that luggage and we just had to make due and wait and see. We got our luggage the next day only for me to notice my lock was not on my luggage I do not know if this was taken off or I mistakenly left it off but I really do not think I did but I will check with the hotel to see if I left it there. I have always liked United but this really made me think on who to plan my next trip with later this year. And certainly will do my best to avoid coming through New Jersey. :("
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was originally scheduled to fly to Cleveland from LGA at 8:30PM. At 12:30PM I got a text from United informing me that my flight had been cancelled. My only rebooking option on the same day was a 9:45PM flight out of Newark. Newark is significantly farther away from my apartment (2 hours vs. 30 minutes) but I took it because it was my only option. After a 2+ hour trip to Newark and going through a disastrous check-in process I found out my flight was delayed until 10:30, then 11, then 11:41. Hardly any real announcements were made until the end when the gate agent stopped hiding. No apologies were made and wasn't even offered water for the inconvenience."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. They made up for the hassle of changing terminals at the last minute."
Cons: "When all of the passengers and crew are at the listed gate well before boarding and the gate is changed to a different terminal it adds a lot of stress to the situation. To the crews credit they did not let it effect their professional attitude. I was highly impressed by the employees of the airline to keep things on time and positive. Overall that made the difference between being a bad experience and becoming one of the best flight experiences I have had in years. This flight crew should be considered an example of how to treat customers well."
