Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."

Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."

I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."

Pros: "Yes."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."

Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"

Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe had a flight crew on time and a plane that wasn’t 30 years old"

Pros: "I have been flying American for 50 years, as a million miler."
Cons: "Another passenger asked for a drink. The passing crew member replied "i dont work first class." Very kindly the passenger asked again for a cocktail. The AA member then said "how many have you had?" Wow would be an understatement. We had been gate tied due to maintenance for over 30 minutes."

Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"

Cons: "Tray table was dirty"

Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"

Pros: "The fight was awesome from takeoff to landing. This has been one of the first flights that my ears did not pop and hurt in years!!! We took off about 10 minutes late waiting on a crew member but made the time up in the air. Great flight!!"

Cons: "The food was really bad. There wasn’t a lot of variety in entertainment."

Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."

Pros: "New, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Salad 90% celery chunks, and beef that was 90% gristle. I paid extra for more leg room but got a bulkhead seat that had less leg room , and cramped, hard to access table and video screen."

Pros: "AA128 is nice. The plane is new and the seat is very comfortable. The service is fine."
Cons: "Food is at a very small portion ( I am a small Asian lady so I am fine but barely enough for a child.). My luggage was lost."

Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing bad on this particular flight but im traumatized from my auckland to sydney flight"

Cons: "I had a woman way too large for her seat crowd 6 inches into my seat which I paid extra for and she did not. She also had a baby which ended up with its head in my lap and she spills formula on me. My body was so contorted I couldn’t sleep the whole flight and it was a 14 hour flight. Dandy attendant tells the guy in the aisle seat That he was such a good passenger that if she had a metal she would give it to him. I’m sitting there like WTF I have only Peed once in 13 hours because the baby was in the bassinet sleeping and I didn’t want to disturb it. And the WiFi didn’t work"

Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"

Pros: "Overall, my experience aboard America Airlines was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like!"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."

Pros: "Snow ruined flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment with this flight. Cookies good."

Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"

Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."

Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."

Pros: "Everyone was nice, and accommodating. It was our 3 and 5yr olds first flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."

Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."

Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"

Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."

Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."

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: "Good service good flight fair food and nice seat."
Cons: "Biggest issue the start very lax re security, 2 people never wore their seatbelts at any time, take off and landing. They hardly checked anything."

Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"

Pros: "Entertainment System, Crew"
Cons: "Washroom faucet didn't work so no one could wash their hands."

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: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."

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: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Cons: "Everything!!!"

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"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late!"

Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."

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: "Plane was on time and manned appropriately with a single crew member. Gate checked bag was handled with care."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."

Pros: "The crew were terrific, business class splendid, information readily available but not incessant."
Cons: "We left 90 minutes late: 30 minutes because Air Canada arrived in Shanghai late, then another hour because we'd missed our window. As a result, I missed my connection and had to spend the night in an airport hotel in Montreal (which Air Canada paid for). These things happen, and they were very professional and sympathetic about it, but under the circumstances I can't give it more than 3 stars overall."

Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"

Cons: "Bag damaged. No one to report damage to"

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."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after we already were sitting in the plane for 1.5 hour."

Cons: "The last leg of our entire trip, and it was late. We left about 1.5 hours late and they had trouble getting the gate to the plane when we landed. A long trip home was made even longer. I was very surprised that there were so many issues with timeliness on AC flights. In our outbound to Athens, two of the three flights left late, and they had to rebook part of our trip to accommodate. And the return trip was more of the same. I expected AC to be world-class and it was more like a regional airline in terms of performance."

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late after we already had a 5 hour lay-over. Waiting area quite small for so many flights to US .Felt like the ugly step-sisters."

Cons: "I will never fly Air Canada between Detroit and Toronto again. Both ways the crew looked exhausted and like they were rather be anyplace but working our flight. Both times they took our carry ons without giving us a choice. For our flight out this was a stressful nuisance because we had to catch a connecting overseas flight. This involved my husband and son going to baggage claim and then having to go back through customs and TSA. The whole point of carry ons is to avoid this. Luckily we didn't miss our international flight but not a good way to begin a trip of a lifetime. Flight was completely uncomfortable and it seemed like no one cared. Should have driven"

Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."

Pros: "flight attendant seemed very kind. I sooo appreciated that the landing was so incredibly smooth. I get motion sick sometimes so that was very nice."
Cons: "delayed 30 minutes waiting for the catering truck. Also, it was FREEZING in that plane, I thought my ankles were going to fall off."

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: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Late. Again. Each of my flights with Air Canada has been late."

Pros: "Its entertainment"
Cons: "very uncomfortable coach seats and 4 hour delay in Vancouver airport"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "There was 1 crew member who once spilled ice over me & laughed it off saying he was just checking to see if I"m awake. Then another time spilled OJ on me & didn't even notice or apologize or offer a napkin so I can clean myself off. Also I had wanted to upgrade my seat for this flight but was unable to because there was no representative at the huge airport in Shanghai. Nor could I do it online. That was a huge inconvenience!"

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: "Nothing."

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"

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."

Cons: "Cancelled my flight. I have zero faith in Air Canada."

Cons: "The rest room did not work"

Cons: "Delays!"

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: "everything was as I expected"

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."

Cons: "Want a refund"

Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and no one new what to do. Took me 48 hours to get home"

Pros: "The staff set me up with an exit seat which was wonderful due to the fact that I am very tall. It made the flight very comfortable. The service was very good as well. I was able to use and charge my device without any trouble and was very pleased with that."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke English very quickly. Due to her accent, this made it difficult to understand at times."

Pros: "The crew is very friendly , hard working and helpful."
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "China Southern has an excellent and attentive staff, very friendly and responsive. The boarding process is smooth with very little complications. In the course of 20 hours they served two full meals with sandwiches for snacks. These were decent meals as far as I am concerned."
Cons: "Guangzhou to Toronto, the cabin was a little warm for my liking, I don't think it ever got below 25°c in there, for me it made it a bit difficult to sleep. This was not the case on my flight from Toronto to Guangzhou so maybe this was just an isolated case."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good."

Cons: "Flight was late. Disembarked at the China Southern repair building. Miles from the terminal"

Pros: "The service was outstanding. They had a person waiting as we got off the first flight to guide us to the second flight. The stewardesses were attentive and outstanding. The seats were comfortable, the food and movie optons were top notch. I can't recommend business class highly enough."
Cons: "I loved everything!"

Cons: "I paid the seating selection and seat was assigned. The southern airlines changed my seat, didn’t fulfi my requirements. Didn’t do anything to comfort me."

Pros: "Basically I didn’t like much. Food was terrible, individual tv entertainment wasn’t available on my return flight A330."
Cons: "Food , tv, many hours of waiting for boarding"

Pros: "China Southern has nice customer service, good entertainment options and decent food. They moved me to an actual bulkhead seat because i am tall and it made the 13 hour trip easy."
Cons: "All good."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great but not bad"

Pros: "Reviews were terrible, but this was better than most US airlines I’ve flown."
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking but it’s not a big deal. I just work or read."

Pros: "Plane is nice. Food is relatively good. Service isn't bad."

Cons: "There was a male flight attendant (I think there were 2 male flight attendants on the flight from LA to Guangzhou) and he looked really upset and angry all the time. He never smiled at customers and did not help customers with a customer servixe mindset. Other flight attendants were really nice and helpful!"

Pros: "Movie selections are good. One screen per seat. Have USB to charge your device."
Cons: "The boarding is hard. Need to take a shuttle to get back to airport. But this might be where they saved the cost for lower airfare."

Cons: "The staff at Check in and security rejected me to check in or passing security due to their low skills finding passport associated with the tickets. The flight also arrived late, causing me worrying about the connection. Flight back to sfo"

Cons: "I reserved the wheel chair service but when I checked in at the counter with the wheel chair symbol, I was told they changed the counter to the other one which is far away and they also rejected to help me check in there. I had to move to the one with a long queue to handle those standby customers. This is my worst experience ever. The service of China Southern airline is becoming worse and worse. Never recommend again."

Pros: "Food was decent and the staff came through the cabin quite frequently to offer drinks"
Cons: "Media screen did not work. I could not select a language which in effect locked me out of any type of on board entertainment for 15 hrs. Good thing I was prepared with my laptop and tablet."

Pros: "Graeat for the business class price"

Pros: "Ditto"
Cons: "Ditto.........."

Pros: "The plane eventually did arrive"
Cons: "The plane was two hours late so we arrived at 2:30 am"

Cons: "Vegetarian options would be nice."

Pros: "Everything was mediocre at best"
Cons: "China southern line and its base Guangzhou airport is notorious for delays. I had 18 and 23 hour delay so for each of my legs of my return flight. Of course connection flights were missed and the multi-step reassignment was time and labor intensive."

Pros: "Fast. Efficient. Lots of yummy snacks on board"
Cons: "Not allowed to use cell phone or open shades"

Cons: "No one spoke English and too many delays. I missed my flight and stayed in hotel until next flight 14hts later"

Pros: "On a long flight I was able to sleep very well. Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "They served breakfast too early. I wanted to sleep some more."

Cons: "The food was very Chinese which makes sense it just wasn't to my taste."

Cons: "AC didn't work."

Pros: "I love the amenities provided by this airline. They give you pillows, blankets, headphones, and magazines. I love the attentiveness of the staff. They provide drinks, meals, and snacks during the scheduled time. If you need something else, then they are happy to help you. The staff really helped us with the temporary visa process during our layover in Wuhan!"
Cons: "My entertainment monitor was not working during the flight to Guangzhou. I listened to music on my own device for entertainment."

Pros: "Great seat on A330, very long. Staff super attentive in Biz, but then it was a quiet flight. IFE ok without being great, same for Food."

Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight, and the staff were very accommodating."

Pros: "Counter staff at JFK was exceptional for our check-in. The crew was very attentive and accomodating. Providing any amount of beverages we asked for as well as adjusting cabin temperature and providing with extra blankets. Nice selection on entertainment system with no hassles to make It work. Always smiling. Constantly cleaning up trash and the bathrooms. One of my most enjoyable long distant flights ever!"
Cons: "Seats were narrow."

Pros: "Very professional and efficient crew."

Pros: "Everything is excellent"

Cons: "see comments above"

Cons: "We got inside to the checkin desk finally after waiting in horrible traffic and lines just to get into the airport. The checkin staff had already left the desk with 1 hr and 10 minutes before the flight. The guy at the information desk came to verify. After making a scene the police/security finally agreed to get someone on the radio. They refused to come back to get us and we were not allowed to go through security. We were told to go to an office in another building but the door was locked, no one home. We continue to fight but couldn't get any progress, missed our flight and ended up spending 10 hours in that airport and then having to wait an extra 10 in China for our missed connection. We went to the office. They refused to help us. Made us pay cash, couldn't take credit card, had to take out 3 different withdrawls, couldn't rebook us, had to call a downtown office. And basically said we were liars and we weren't there on time. Even though they only had the 2 employees working the entire airport for this airline. Still no power in the seats, no wifi, ended up missing an entire day plus the travel day that I was meant to be working. Travel insurance wouldn't cover because it wasn't a "strike" I don't know what else you call it when someone decides not to do their job."

Pros: "The cabin crew were quick to answer all of my requests. Blanket, coffee, coke, water."
Cons: "We had a bulkhead behind us and our seats didn't seem to have the full angle for recline."

Pros: "Plane was nice and new."
Cons: "The food could be the worst of any airline food...and that is saying something. Also I had two flights and the short flight was a very old looking plane with the thinnest seats I had ever seen. It was one the first leg of a long trip so I was worried this is how the bigger flight was going to be but the next plane looked new and was much more comfortable."

Pros: "The ground staff were also very helpful."

Pros: "see above."
Cons: "n / a"

Pros: "Agent failed to forward my meal request but the crew somehow scraped together what I needed."
Cons: "Check in agent attitude."

Pros: "China Southern is just fine, no better or worse than any other airline."
Cons: "I used China Southern to go to Delhi, transiting through Wuhan and Guangzhou. They make you get off with all your carry-on items in both locations, through a cattle run of security and confusing immigration lines, only to end up in exactly the same plane and seat as before. It's a major hassle during the early hours of the morning jetlagged and tired, and for myself, is not worth the few dollars in savings."

Pros: "The nice flight attendants & the good entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "flight showed as an hour delayed online, so I went to the airport later/accordingly, only to find out that the flight wasn't delayed (and I'd have been screwed if they didn't let me use the priority line for security check). Did leave an hour late after all, but w/o specific explanation as to why"

Pros: "None."
Cons: "Confusing and lacking announcements/instructions. Crew cannot speak intelligible English. Flight was late over 4 hours and no food vouchers aside from hotel accommodation. No apologies received from Crew/staff from the major inconveniences throughout the flight."

Pros: "The only thing that I like was the yogurt they gave us for the meal."
Cons: "First they cancel my flight but they didn't send me an email neither call me to my chinese phone number so I got to the airport and I realized that my flight was cancelled. When I was in the airport they didn't give any answers and they changed my flight two times. The staff doesn't really speak english and most of them are really rude."

Cons: "This airline needs to get it together with the delays. To keep it short, I will not fly with this airline again."

Cons: "Chicken in our meal had gone bad. Crew very apologetic. Then the plane was terribly hot and crew kept making excuses and the problem was never resolved. Faucet in the bathroom sprayed everywhere. One of the worst flights I've ever taken but not so off the mark for Chinese carriers"

Pros: "There was nothing to like at the wuhan airport. However, the flight from wuhan to san francisco was OK. Food was OK, but lacked variety."
Cons: "We did not understand the reason for stopover at Wuhan. Did not understand the reason for immigration formality, like arrival or departure formalities. It was tiring and frustrating. The leg space and size of the seat could improve for such a long flight. Entertainment was of poor choice and very limited."

Pros: "The flight qmwent without issue once we took iff"
Cons: "There was maintenance needed on the plane before we could take off and that delayed us further from take off."

Pros: "Economy seating for such a small plane was great."
Cons: "This flight- one of the crew (female) had a miserable attitude. Like we were an inconvenience."

Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The airbus seats were far more comfortable than the 737-800 seats that we had on the orevious outgoing flight. It shows comfort is possible when the airline selects the right equipment."
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Not delay the flight causing me to not have enough time to connect In Frankfurt."

Pros: "Just outstanding handling of any upcoming issue, comforting travelers, helping lost moms not knowing what to do with their unbehaving sceaming kids. Helping rude business travelers to get more alcohol without charging them, and many challenges along that line, just handled amazingly!"
Cons: "just the food items available, would be so nice to have a few more options for purchase!"

Cons: "Short trip , WiFi was out but not an issue. Again I was so pleased not to have to climb narrow stairs to board. It was excellent and glad to be home. Maybe some peanuts."

Pros: "On time. Comfortable and smooth flight"

Cons: "Delays due to to weather is not a new thing to worry, but flight delay should be informed early to the passengers so that I should have planned the arrival to the airport accordingly, but I was told just before the gate prior to boarding time and the delay was around 3 hrs."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything went wrong, a car stuck behind the plane. Really? Such BS. Sat in line to take off but wasn’t informed we’d be sitting there for 30 mins."

Pros: "The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight."
Cons: "My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Did not board flight due to above Billund to Frankfurt flight being delayed and causing me to miss this flight."

Pros: "The best part of this flight was getting off the plane and vowing never to fly United again. They, in this experience were no better at doing their job - getting people from one place to another on time with a little comfort and dignity - than the cut rate guys. Miserable 13 hour trip for what should've been 4 hours in the air."
Cons: "13 hours of travel time for what should've been 4 hours on two planes. The first was staffed by a miserable crew who seemed bothered by the notion of having to deal with passengers. The second was staffed by a crew who couldn't see the passengers scrounging for anything to cover up with to keep warm. Both crews lacked any sense of pride and professionalism. Add delays to that and you have a sum total of a miserable trip home."

Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."

Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"

Pros: "Not much, the plane and crew were fine. The RJ's are getting old and dirty though."
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed. The crew is less than sympathetic. No way would I fly United if it wasn't a non-stop flight."

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "There were five flights out of our gate and we couldn't hear who was supposed to board because three people would be cross talking at the same time. All united flights."

Pros: "It was a quick and safe flight. We had two drink offerings and multiple water offerings. That was very nice. The foot space was actually more comfortable than expected."
Cons: "It's not that I didn't like the flight, it's that it is just normal."

Pros: "Food, Movies, larger seats (we paid and upgraded)"
Cons: "4 hour delay with no explanation, crew members were confused and didn't know what to say over the loud speaker, they said the wrong words a few times and stuttered. Bags took 45 minutes to go baggage claim for pickup"

Pros: "Boarded quickly, seats had more leg room than I expected."
Cons: "United's check in process for economy fares requires in person check in (you can't check in online) so checking in at Newark was a bit of a hassle."

Pros: "Excellent!"
Cons: "Excellent!"

Pros: "Timely boarding and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The allottedseating and leg space per person. I felt extremely closed in, it was very to get things out of my carry on bags. I could barely move."

Pros: "On time. Announcer at gate could have been a little clearer."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The staff was great!!!"
Cons: "The food needs improvement."

Pros: "Quick boarding m"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay"

Cons: "Waited until boarding to give me a seat"

Cons: "I'm still here never got out"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Efficient and on time"

Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."

Cons: "Very long delay"

Cons: "Didn't make it"

Pros: "Getting home finally"
Cons: "Miscommunication with customer service regarding stand by flights, representatives were extremely rude, spent 7 hrs at airport during departure and 7 at airport during arrival, constant gate changes and that's just to say the least"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"

Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "For all everything was OK"

Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"

Cons: "Delays both ways"

Pros: "On timing"

Pros: "Only an hour flight"
Cons: "Same as earlier flight but didn't try wifi."

Pros: "The personal were mostly very freindly"
Cons: "My carry-on had to go through the scanner a few times and finally had to be checked. The check person was calling out "who's bag" and I did not hear her. She scolded me for not listening."

Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."

Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"

Pros: "On time"
