Pros: wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle.
Cons: 17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided.

This information is also not readily accessible when searching online.
Pros: The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant.

Pros: Excellent service. Excellent quality of food.
Cons: I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids
Pros: The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!
Pros: Cabin was very nice with modern equipment and food and refreshments were provided frequently. Entertainment options were great too. Cabin crew were very pleasant.
Cons: Connecting flight from Philadelphia to Doha was delayed by 5 hours due to some technical errors. By the time we arrived in Doha, there were no more planes heading to Manila. We did get booked a free night's stay in a hotel in Doha along with transport to the airport
Pros: Dedicated to customer service
Pros: Boarding from Doha and service in doha.
Cons: ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?
Pros: Overall nice
Cons: Same as above
Pros: Very nice. Everything was great.
Pros: Loved the food and entertainment.
Cons: Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front.
Pros: I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone.
Cons: The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited.
Pros: Landing and botding is safe
Pros: Comfort and Cleaniness.
Cons: Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement.
Pros: Everything, great airlineevrething
Pros: The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent.
Cons: The new diagonal seats are good, except when trying to put my feet up. The raised foot area is very cramped, and for me sleeping wasn't possible. I left my feet on the floor.
Pros: The entertainment options.
Cons: I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well.
Pros: Excellent service and in time flights.
Pros: Food was great, good selection of entertaiment and movies, seat comfortable (even for economy class). Very friendly flight attendants. This was my first flight with Qatar and I'm now a big fan
Pros: Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious.
Cons: Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy.
Pros: The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate
Cons: I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks.
Pros: Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance.
Cons: Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to.
Pros: Service was good.
Cons: Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options.
Pros: I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again.
Cons: They cancelled the booking without telling about that And also they didn't prepare a place for staying The desk manager said the booking cancelled by your company
Pros: Excellent customer service
Pros: The crew was friendly and accommodating. The seats were comfortable and there was good leg space. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch. The food wasn't bad either.
Cons: More snack options
Pros: Though departure was delayed, arrived at destination on time!
Cons: Entertainment options
Pros: Seat size
Cons: Everything was just fine
Cons: Original flight changed- had me arriving after second flight took off. Delta didn’t fix it. Spent 5 hours changing it. Rebooked flight was delayed- they rebooked to the next day at the last minute then, got me out same night but 3 Hours from my original airport.
Pros: How friendly the staff was to my esa & myself.
Cons: It wasn’t made clear when special services could board.

Cons: Luggage still in Atlanta with Delta.
Pros: Great crew!
Cons: Did not get upgraded :)
Pros: Comfortable Seats. Good cabin service.
Cons: A no problem flight
Pros: Quick flight
Cons: Organization of entry gates. Sat in the plane for about 30 min after landing.
Pros: On time
Pros: After a late, crowded boarding process, somehow the flight crew got us off the ground on time!
Cons: Having more than 2 harried airline agents at the gate to handle the sold out flight filled with families with babies!
Pros: top notch KLM are the best
Pros: Seat was comfortable but not much room
Cons: Couldn’t understand a word the flight attendants said on the intercom system
Pros: This is a super aircraft with many amenities. The flight was smooth for the most part. Loved the movie and the classical music. The crew seemed to work well with each other and was very friendly.
Cons: It would be nice to have an enforced carry on rule as people bring multiple large bags on and tie up the storage space.
Pros: Myself and my wife were rebooked and arrived home the same day. Albeit 7 hours late.
Cons: Flight left gate on time, yet departed 1 hr late because deicing took almost 1 hour. There was only one truck working.
Pros: Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!
Cons: There’s nothing I can think of.
Pros: Smooth flight
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
Pros: The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations
Cons: Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it.
Pros: Great view of the mountains, EVERYTHING was one time and EARLY!! Staff was great and we had a smooth ride. wish all flights were this good. Even touchdown was amazing, like landing on glass. Compliments to the captain.
Cons: Wait time because of Atlanta crowding.Re:hurricaine?
Pros: Quick boarding
Pros: Flight attendants were excellent!
Pros: good price but older plans
Cons: please do not use plastic forks and spoons
Pros: As poltronas estavam OK.
Cons: No voo MEX-GRU o Sistema de Entretenimento nao funcionou por quase 3hs. A refeicao foi muito fraca, tamto no jantar quanto no café da manhã. Onde ja se viu comer feijão preto com onelete no cafe da manhã??? Deveriam pensar no tipo de passageiro q estao atendendo.
Pros: Generally everything went smoothly on this leg of my trip.
Pros: Easy to board.
Cons: Delayed due to weather.
Pros: This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me.
Pros: The flights were smooth, it was an easy process
Pros: Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today
Cons: The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes.
Pros: The food is delicious and there are healthy choices, the staff helped me put my carry on into the overhead bin, which was super helpful because I'm only 5ft tall
Cons: The entertainment selection was not that good. They had some new movies but nothing you could turn your brain off to. The selection on my second 50 minute flight with delta had more options and variety than my 14 hour korean air one...
Pros: Courteous crew and smooth flight
Pros: the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence.
Cons: lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers...
Cons: Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first.
Pros: Stewardess named "Mel."
Cons: Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible
Pros: Getting to the correct destination.
Cons: The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father.
Pros: friendly flight crew
Pros: The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one.
Cons: We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in.
Pros: Columbus airport is very nice. Security was quick. Boarding the plane was smooth and no problems. Staff was very nice too!
Pros: Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average
Cons: Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options.
Pros: Efficient and on time.
Cons: I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate.
Pros: 30 min. early!
Cons: Only pretzels
Pros: Quick, clean
Cons: I was in the back seat
Pros: Very friendly flight crew.
Cons: LaGuardia is always delayed...this time was only about 15 minutes.
Pros: service. Thank you.
Cons: comfort seats were uncomfortable
Pros: Entertainment options were great with many new movies available for no additional cost.
Cons: The flight was delayed by over two hours. We were scheduled to arrive in Detroit around 10 pm which was already on the later end of our comfort zone. By the time we landed in Detroit, claimed out bags and made the 1.25 hour drive home it was after 1:00 AM. This was not a pleasant end to our trip.
Cons: Old planes, disinterested crew, full flight
Cons: Beverages fir 1st class
Cons: 30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?
Pros: Seats felt thin
Cons: There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told.
Pros: Tim was great!
Cons: The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight.
Pros: The air hostess didn’t smile while offering cookies, but she wasn’t rude. She later asked my fellow passenger to move to another window seat and I had the comfort of 2 seats.
Pros: The staff was fantastic. Very helpful.
Cons: Flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our layover. The only way they initially could correct the issue was by booking us a flight 5 days later. Finally found a helpful person at the gate after calling American Airlines and getting no help. We lost day of our trip, but it’s better than 5.
Cons: Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane.
Cons: Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault).
Pros: The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts.
Cons: However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again.
Pros: Take offs equaled lands
Cons: Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage
Pros: The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood.
Pros: short flight
Pros: Biscuits are awesome
Cons: WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work.
Pros: We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac
Cons: I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board.
Pros: The seats were quite comfortable.
Cons: My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane.
Pros: Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth.
Cons: Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up.
Pros: Excellent service gate to gate.
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay
Pros: Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment.
Cons: Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination.
Cons: Delayed by 90 minutes.
Cons: we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!
Pros: Fast and friendly
Cons: Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well.
Cons: The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB.
Cons: Could have been given more snacks for 3 hr flight
Cons: Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra.
Cons: It was delayed.
Pros: Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served.
Cons: My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse.
Cons: Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out.
Pros: It was okay
Cons: We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful.
Cons: I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing.
Cons: 3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane.
Cons: ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays.
Cons: There was no food or entertainment and the seats were old and uncomfortable and it was ridiculously cold
Cons: Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective.
Pros: Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating
Cons: All was good, flight attendants were exceptional
Cons: After waiting for the plane to receive some kind of maintenance for hours on end and missing our connecting flight, they finally sent us to another city to catch a different plane to our final destination.
Pros: The crew, as always
Cons: Being sectioned off from 1st class
Pros: Boarded on time. You should let only executive Platinum board after 1st class. The value is diluted when ALL advantage members board at the same time.
Cons: Boarding. See above.
Pros: As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly.
Cons: There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips
Cons: 2 hour Delay
Pros: The whole process from check-in to getting luggage was smooth.
Cons: Food wasn't great. It wasn't terrible either but I've had better.
Pros: Only check in and boarding was smooth.
Pros: Boarding easy and not rushed. Crew friendly and laid back - didn’t seem uptight. Nice aircraft. For a long flight, it was surprisingly easy.
Cons: Economy space is still so cramped for a long flight. Food was fine and what would be expected. Not remarkable.
Cons: All passengers had to board 40 minutes earlier than departure time. The air plain door was closed 10 minutes before departure. No reason we had to board earlier. All passengers are only 15-20 people...
Pros: The movies and outlets for charging things
Cons: Don’t allow screaming babies/kids on the flight next time
Pros: Good movies
Cons: Flight took 3 hours longer than expected and they lost the baggage of me and 50+ other travellers
Pros: new airplane, some juice offered, good entertainment, staff was ok on the return flight (first class)
Cons: nothing to eat, no leg room, poor wifi, hidden fees for checked luggage, damaged baggage on the return flight. I asked for some more water on the first flight, and the guy gave me a look as if I had asked him about his soul.
Pros: The flight boarded quickly and even though we were at the back of the line there was still overhead bin space for our carry on luggage. The in-flight entertainment worked well on our iPads (no need to rent one) and the stewards always had smiles on their faces. The flight left on time and landed a few minutes early which is a bonus when you are on vacation.
Cons: My problem is when United uses Air Canada the privileges that United gives don't exist and they treat you like anyone else... If I'm gold status with United theb I should be with Air Canada as well
Pros: We liked the extra leg room of the economy plus seats but the seats were too narrow.
Cons: The bathroom were not cleaned during the flight by the end of the flight there was no toilet paper and the bath rooms were very unclean.
Cons: I may be mistaken here, but apparently since I am not a permanent US resident, I needed a transit visa to fly through Canada, although this was not advertised anywhere. As such, we were not allowed to check in our flight and had to cancel our tickets a few hrs prior to boarding and book tickets on antoher flight. We would up losing good money since we were traveling as a family with kids. The silver lining is we flew Emirates which we should have chosen from the very beginning.
Cons: Gluten free food was mediocre. Worst on any airline. Crew was not attentive and anybrequest felt like an imposition.
Pros: Comfortable flight
Cons: Food was average
Pros: There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok.
Pros: Direct flight saved time.
Pros: Aircraft was clean. Convenient connecting gates. Flight duration.
Cons: - Poor quality food - Extremely poor inflight entertainment - Flight delayed no real explanation provided
Cons: the flight was 5 hours late
Pros: The food needs much improvement and needs to be healthy !!!
Pros: Kind crew
Cons: Littled staffed
Cons: I reached delhi a day late and missed an important event. See ablove
Cons: Air Canada is always late to board, take off, or to depart from the aircraft for the most random reasons. Every time I fly with apr Canada I can never depart or arrive in time; it's always a problem.
Pros: The on board entertainment was phenomenal. My kids LOVED that they could connect and play games with each other. The gate agents in narita were the sweetest people I've come across in a long time.
Cons: Air Canada is pretty dang snobby for the most part. Im not sure when a rule was instituted that headphones can't be worn under 10000 feet, but my three children were targeted many times about their headsets... on the ear, boring kid headsets... and there were THREE adults around us wearing similar headsets that were not bothered. I am a single mother of three tired children and we were settling in for a long flight and I found the treatment very unnecessary and discriminatory. The food was pretty awful, lol. We ordered kids meals and none of my kids ate on the flight.
Pros: Good movies, ok food
Cons: Pathetic legroom, sickeningly uncomfortable
Pros: The plane is new.
Cons: Meal needs to improve. All Nippon airways served much better meal.
Cons: Not aconfortable plane
Cons: Flight was delayed 4 hours
Pros: The flight was on time, boarding was well-organized, the service was friendly and helpful.
Cons: The line to the washroom was quite long - there were only two washrooms at the back of the plane.
Pros: The crew were nice.
Cons: It was just a long flight. Food was mediocre. Not a lot of elbow room to eat.
Cons: Nothing it was fine
Pros: Apart from food there was nothing great about the flight
Cons: The staff is the worst, the air hostesses are rude and treat you bad. The service is very poor.
Pros: The plane flew in air and got us where we wanted to go but not on time
Cons: Everything else Breakfast a slice of banana bread !!! Nonchalant staff Getting water was trouble
Pros: The crew and food were fine.
Cons: They don't adequately warn you that you need to download an app to use entertainment system before you get on board. The wifi in the airport is terrible so not able to download app for all devices. The entertainment choices were very limited. For such a long flight, they should add more choices. Would not recommend Air Canada for light to/from Europe.
Pros: I thought that things ran very smooth and efficientlt
Pros: Nothing much, only the plane was clean
Cons: Horrible food and service. Organization in boarding was poor.
Cons: Because of a three and a half hour delay on the first leg of the journey, I missed the overseas flight. They out me up in a hotel, but I had to wait 24 hrs for the next flight. There was no attempt to get me on another flight and so far no willingness to compensate me for the other travel I had to rebook.
Cons: Had delays going to Toronto and returning to Columbus.
Pros: Had to change initial flight due to passport problem. Customer support was excellent. The man who rebooked our flights (air canada representative) did an excellent job.
Pros: Spacious seating.
Cons: Flight attendants unimpressive in their interest.
Cons: One flight cancelled and the rebooked flight was delayed 2 hours, causing us to miss connections. We ended up arriving in Montreal 9 hours after originally scheduled going from Columbus, Ohio to Montreal.
Pros: Nothing. Simply don't buy off of kayak
Cons: Liars. Flight lost my baggage. Left gate late as usual. Awful flight with shitty crew
Cons: Cramped very crowded plane.
Pros: Not much
Cons: did not get my choice of meal Crew not accommodating
Pros: The extremely unempathetic Toronto Air Canada customer service agent was a particularly fond memory from my trip.
Cons: After weather forced us to miss our flight to Delhi from Toronto (understandable), Air Canada booked us on an AC flight to London and then an Air India flight to Delhi from London. In Toronto they told us that we couldnt get our bags because they were in storage, but that they would be on the plane to London and then to Delhi. Upon arriving in London, Air India told us that Air Canada never booked us on their flight to Delhi - that neither of our names were on their manifest. Air India was helpful in getting Air Canada's mistake fixed. Upon arriving in India, my partners bag was nowhere to be found. It would be logical to assume that his bag was in London and never made the imaginary flight Air Canada booked us on. However, even though our bags sat in Air Canada storage for 24 hours, his bag was never even loaded onto our flight to London. He didn't receive his bag until 6 days into our trip, causing all of us to miss out on multiple experiences, including the ability to leave Delhi because of our need to get his bag and multiple missed and promised deadlines from the airline.
Pros: Air Canada provided accommodations for me when I was informed about my removal from my connecting flight.
Cons: I didn't enjoy the sassy customer service representative who "assisted" me in redirecting me for the next possible flight to India. She booked me for a flight to London and told me that I was also confirmed for an Air India flight from London to Delhi. This "confirmation" was false after checking in with Air India. There was no entry of me being registered for the flight. Luckily, there were enough seats to make my accommodation. The looming concern that followed was that my bag was clearly not going to be in Delhi once I arrived to my destination. This then became my reality and had to deal with not having my luggage for 6 days in India. There was blatant disregard between both airlines in trying to deliver my bag to me. They both blamed each other and refused to claim responsibility. With both refusing to claim fault, I had to fend for myself and pay for clothes and other necessities. Hands down, the WORST experience I've ever endured while traveling with any airline. I vow to never fly Air Canada and Air India ever again.
Cons: The person checking me in to getting seat assignment must have been having a bad day. She was downright rude.
Pros: Great crew, delicious samosas! Awesome selection of movies
Cons: I'm skinny but tall and it is my opinion that these seats are uncomfortably small/narrow The room UNDER the seats is smaller than in other planes as well, so it's tougher to stow your gear
Pros: Service was good, not exceptional. The flight departed on time. The food was ok, nothing outstanding! Air Canada did not let me carry my second bag for free made me question the reason for not picking another airline!
Pros: Nothing. I'm happy that it wasn't worse.
Cons: Uncomfortable seats. Unhelpful ground staff. I missed my connecting flight due to bad weather and the attitude of the Air Canada staff was total indifference. I was told by the ground staff in Philadelphia that someone will be there to help us to quickly get to our connecting flight. Not only was no one there , but the quicker route to the gate closes after 11pm making us take the long way, therefore ensuring that we would miss the connecting flight. The two employees making new reservations took more than an hour to deal with 7 passengers. If you're economy class not only do they not pay for a hotel, they do not help in any way whatsoever other than handing you a card with a phone number to call to make your reservations (at a discounted price). After arriving at the hotel at 3 am in the morning, checking out at 1pm and spending 10hrs at the airport I finally got on my flight and spent another 14 hours in an uncomfortable seat before arriving in Delhi. Overall a terrible experience. I will never fly Air Canada again. You can only truly judge a business by seeing how it behaves when something goes wrong. Air Canada failed miserably!
Pros: The staff was helpful
Cons: Better food
Cons: Got to airport, no gate assigned. Waiting in line for 37 mins. To have the gate staff walk away and help other customers. Than got a gate with notice of a 2 hour delay. Got to gate and got another notice with another delay. Our 8:45p flight left at 12:40am. Plus had another gate change.
Pros: Everything was good.
Cons: All was good.
Pros: Customer service was good, I also liked the text updates.
Cons: I really dislike that the make you check your carry on now. Most airlines let you take your carry on so I’m used to that. It also originally said $25 but at the check in it was $30. Plus I prefer not to check in my bag because it is faster, but since I did I had to stay at the airport an extra hour.
Pros: Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time.
Cons: If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport.
Pros: Generally efficient, clean
Cons: Crew seemed hurried - when asking if people wanted coffee walked by so quickly I did not have a chance to reply
Pros: The Lufthansa crew was very friendly on all legs and provided excellent service. The good was actually good.
Cons: The seat could have been more comfortable for a long trip but still better than your typical American airlines.
Cons: Extremely poor communication. Arrived in Bozeman almost two hours behind schedule. Sat on the runway FOREVER waiting to get to the gate after landing. Flight attendant gave reason but couldn’t understand her. Rude flight attendants. Just overall not a good experience. It’ll be my last with United.
Pros: Pretty good leg room and nice refreshments, but the flight was delayed quite a bit and caused to me to miss my connecting flight, which I was told I had plenty of time to get to.
Cons: See what I liked*
Pros: The crew was awesome!
Cons: The flight from Columbus to Chicago was originally suppose to leave at 6pm we had a 3 hour delay and did not leave until 9pm. This delay caused anxiety because there was a connecting flight ahead and we were afraid we would miss it.
Cons: Weather delay
Cons: Sat in the very back row. Seemingly had less space than any other row and got hit by every person walking to the bathroom. I know united can’t control how often ppl go to the bathroom but this was a rough flight with constantly having ppl out of their seats. Crew was great!
Pros: Great airline crew and staff. Departed on time and arrived early.
Cons: My other 3 flights on United were on a larger airplane with plenty of legroom. This one was very cramped. I was stuck in a middle seat and essentially pinned there for 2 hours.
Pros: Less than an hour in the air- commuter shuttle
Cons: Plane had very little luggage space. I'm explorer card holder boarding should be priority I was in group 2. Food was not of good quality hence lot of people left it. 3. Sets were too narrow.
Pros: 14 hour flight. The legroom in economy seating on UA 82 is an absolute joke if you are 5 feet 6 inches or taller. I am 5' 11" Charging $200 premium for economy plus which on united is a few more inches of legroom unlike other carriers where it's a step closer to business class.
Cons: Entertainment system was not working for the duration of the flight (14 hours). Legroom in economy seating $200 premium for 4 more inches of legroom No automatic upgrade for silver star loyalty membership even though plenty of seats available.
Pros: Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat.
Cons: Seats are too narrow.
Pros: From Washington to Albania everything was great.
Cons: The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both.
Cons: Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way.
Cons: service, custumer attn comunication
Cons: They were cancell my fly let me sleep in airport never fly to united
Pros: The flight was delayed serial times.
Cons: The flight was delayed several times.
Cons: The small commuter planes used for the trip are not smooth rides at all. Very uncomfortable
Pros: It was comfortable
Cons: lots of turbulence but that happens
Pros: 6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time
Pros: Flight attendants were excellent as usual.
Cons: Trouble getting a seat assigned via the United app.
Cons: Our flight was cancelled, bad weather was the day before our flight, not the day of our flight (the day of our flight which was sun). We now got rebooked for wed. That's 3 days we didn't plan to be in Columbus oh. That seems excessive.
Cons: Delays no good...
Cons: They turned the flight around, getting us home hours later than what was supposed to be
Pros: We ended up with the exit row seats - awesome, especially for my 6'6" husband.
Cons: We each had one bag- a backpack for him and an incredibly small roll bag for me. We were told we absolutely had to check the roll bag as space was limited. There were 3 off duty flight attendants sitting next to me and each had 2 large bags. Multiple other people had multiple oversized bags they were allowed to carry on. This infuriates me. I brought one bag, and a smaller than regulation one at that and I had to check it because other people were allowed to bring multiple bags. If you know a flight will be a tight squeeZe, limit people to one bag each.
Pros: Crew and they kept you well feed
Cons: I just could not get comfortable
Cons: Rude attendants.
Pros: Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse.
Cons: - Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service.
Cons: During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter.
Cons: Delayed and delayed and at last cancled the flt. It's Uniteds tradition to cancled the late evening flt. Stupid airlines.
Pros: Good price and good flight.
Cons: Overlay at the airports were tiring. While going into USA, in chicago I had to stay overnight for the next flight. While coming back, in Japan, I had to stay overnight for the next flight.
Cons: The seats are ridiculously small and cramped and hard. Didnt realize i was booking a "puddle-jumper" to go cross-country. Also-i wish you'd bring the screens back. Neck was so kinked from being on my own so long.
Cons: Terrible experience in onboarding.. Later on i was made to sit in flight for 5 hours at mumbai airport
Cons: Additional fees for extra space were 1/3 the cost of my flight
Pros: Nothing everything was horrible absolute terrible customer service
Cons: Didn't offer vouchers or accomodations Classified delay as weather when we were told in Ohio it was a mechicanical I was extremely distraught began crying horribly became extremely dehydrated & went into urgent care once returning to PHX
Pros: Everything was fantastic
Cons: It was late boarding and landing. Our bags were sitting in the rain.
Pros: Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD.
Cons: United has replaced all gate agents with contractors. It is abundantly clear. No stakes in customer service, these folks are just slightly above automated robots following scripts verbatim with poor skills speaking English.
Pros: The crew was very kind.
Cons: The temperature control was ridiculous!!! One minute it was 40 degrees and the next it was 90. People were putting on coats and hats, taking them off and putting them back on the entire flight. It was horrible and there was NOTHING relaxing about this flight bc of it. The crew announced the inflight entertainment and gave directions on how to use it. Thirty minutes later, they informed us it wasn't working. So nothing to distract us from the horrible temps!!! Pull this aircraft out of service and fix the temperature!!!
Pros: As pleasant as possible.
Cons: Nothing negative to note.
Pros: Got home early no delays good seats
Cons: All my tickets states see attendant for seat so I was worried I didn't have a seat
Pros: Window seat. On time. Courtesy of staff.
Cons: Cramped. Tight fit for such along flight. Squoze in.
Pros: That kayak sent me an update on which baggage claim rwmeinal to go to. Had it not been for that I wouldn't been walking up and down Dulles to figure out where my bags were. Thank you kayak
