Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "1. Great movie selection 2. Healthy food option 3. Craft beer was appreciated 4. Friendly crew"

Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"

Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Cons: "The special meal I ordered was delivered to someone else. The entertainment system wasn't functioning properly and no English susbtiles we're offered for any of the movies, unlike my previous Delta flights (for some reason there were only Chinese)"
Pros: "I like the fact that I was issued a credit for my flight. It was booked in error and had to be cancelled."
Cons: "I don't know how to use my credit."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. Terrible customer service. My bags didn't travel with me. My vacation got screwed up."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."
Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."

Great flight Will go again!

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

This is not customer service. Let’s not pretend. Flying American is transactional at best. I pay for transportation, the airline provides transportation (unbound by comfort and convenience)… the end. No one is there to impress or innovate, they simply just exist as part of the transportation process. Avoid if you have other options.

Everything was ok , .

Flight on time. Short flight. No food needed.

Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The airplane was very cold, and our seats were screwed up. Gentleman at the gate was very helpful, and handled the problem the best he could."
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was malfunctioning. Movies were starting passed the beginning and the system was crashing."
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Pros: "My crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The flight attendants were friendly, watched a movie, thanks for the ear buds to listen to the movie. There was a lot of turbulence but I feel our pilot managed it very well bringing us in safely and smoothly as possible. I can't think of anything that could have been improved on."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "I never got to go on my trip... wasted all my money and never got anywhere and can't seem to get a refund or at least another ticket."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Side seats suck"
Pros: "In flight entertainment and food were great"
Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Pros: "WiFi"
Cons: "Had to take shuttle to other side of airport which took over an hour. Very very poor experience. Also, Seats had no room pull down table."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Confortable seating and boarding was good."
Cons: "Crew was attentive to process but not the people. Kinda like machines"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Cons: "Despite inbound flight - with the same airline - coming in 6 minutes early the connecting flight was closed when arriving at the gate. Rebooked on next flight some 3 hours later."
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "The crew was top notch, very pleasant and went the extra mile."
Cons: "My husband and I were assigned seats in a different part of the plane from one another."
Pros: "Pleasent"
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Crew was great. All flights and connections on time and easy."
Cons: "Food - better to stick with basics in coach. Entertainment - too conservative boring."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, left on time and arrived early. All the staff were friendly, even humorous."
Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew was great. Overall great flight."
Cons: "Boarding could have been faster."
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "No individual screens to watch. Get with the times for long flights !"
Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic."
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."
Pros: "The TV entertainment built in the seat."
Cons: "The baggage check in process, the 6 hour delay of my flight, wasting the majority of my day in the airport due to plane inspection. De-planing after boarding. The unorganized line/crowd during the boarding process."
Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."
Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."
Pros: "I was lucky to get an upgrade to business class. It was fantastic, of course, as business class should be. Great crew, great space."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies. Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy and not interested in dozens of superhero movies!"
Cons: "Eliminate an acceptable two and a half hours delay in take off time due to catering planning issues."
Cons: "The flight was operated by Air Canada, who habitually assume either that the people in the final row have no hand luggage or simply suffer from a severe lack of operational storage capacity. Overhead bins full of spare plastic cups. As far as the crew are concerned, no problem, because you can just push your way three or four rows forward while everyone else is boarding and then take someone else's overhead space. When will Air Canada learn how to run an airline?"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The plane was clean. The temperature in the plan was good."
Cons: "It was a little more turbulent than I expected."
Pros: "the crew was extremely nice. i was mainly impressed by the many times they made the effort to serve water."
Pros: "the concept"
Cons: "the reality"
Pros: "Very good plane, comfortable and new. Food is okay but they were short with all the options (the back of the plane had no option for dinner due to lack of meals)"
Cons: "The crew were nice but lazy. Whenever someone called them through the chair system they just ignore the call. After a few time I tried to call them I just went to their area to ask things."
Pros: "The flight was so not packed. There were rows and rows of empty seats. I had a row to myself to sleep on, it was amazing."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Especially breakfast"
Pros: "crew was very helpful polite nice and welcoming"
Cons: "food was not fresh, hot meal was pretty terrible in both 2 flights"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew, the food and the entertainment. The crew did give us peanuts for our extra 5 hours on the plane."
Cons: "We were 3 hours late for departure and took 2 extra hours in the air because of re-routing. The seats were abnormally stiff and went back so little that it was extremely hard to fall asleep during the 18 hours we were on board. The crew was unwillng to let us bring our instruments on board and thus, they cracked from the air pressure during the flight."
Cons: "My flight from NYC to Montreal was delayed 4 hours due to a storm that had passed earlier in the day. That was understandable, however we then sat on the tarmac at the gate for an additional hour because Air Canada's entire computer system suddenly crashed. We finally got to the runway and in the middle of takeoff the pilot slammed on the brakes and aborted the takeoff because he did not reach high enough speed. It was very scary. I was supposed to land in Montreal at 10:20 pm but arrived there at 2:30 am the next morning."
Cons: "After taking Air Canada to Toronto, this Air Canada flight from Toronto to Orlando was a shock- no back-of-seat tv screens, no entertainment choice, no meals provided, less space, less comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent fight.... comfortable and easy..."
Cons: "Crew where a bit slow... and the use of 4! Languages for announcement was annoying..."
Pros: "The deleted meals request could not be remedied even with greater than four hours notice of THEIR mistake. No proper meals for a 15 Hour flight and no compensation."
Cons: "Get it right or make it right."
Cons: "The seats and the lack of leg room."
Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"
Pros: "I like that the seats have tv's and seats are comfortable There is also a great selection of things to watch Including Indy Canadian content So great! Crew was great as usual I very much prefer to fly air Canada over the American carriers"
Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."
Pros: "Air Canada ground crew where very good and helpful as where all staff"
Cons: "Plane was overly cramped, if you eliminate one set of seats and only had 8 across and less row, I think you would make great improvements to overall customer satisfaction if the seating was mad alittle more comfortable"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal, but they did not have it."
Pros: "Crew is quite young and friendly.. good service. Boarding was quick and easy. Blanket and neck pillow package were comfy and worth the $7"
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING and the seats are a bit cramped."
Cons: "We sat in the back rows of the plane so it was hours before we were even offered water and by the time they finally got to us there was no food to PURCHASE. Bad enough we were not fed on this long flight but there wasn't even anything to purchase. By the time they FINALLY got to us to provide us something to drink, they came through wanting to take it from us. I was VERY disappointed with this leg of the trip as it was not at all what we have experienced on the first leg of this very long day of flying. There was no time between transfers to use the restroom, let alone buy food, had we known."
Cons: "so much confusion at boarding time, my husband is handicapped and we were sent to wrong plane to board, staff told us to make a left when we should have made a right, there were 3 of us and the staff just laughed it off, we were not laughing"
Cons: "One of the crew member was so rude to petition. We were surprised and very unpleasant to watch her attitude and way she talked to people. So bad! And your costomer service phone lines are terrible!!!!! Never answer the phone and waiting time is over 30min! What kind of airline customer service line is this horrible?"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around much for most of flight, except for duty free - couldn't get water, or hot water for tea for a long time"
Pros: "Free entertainment. Big, spacious plane"
Cons: "Food was disgusting and crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Even though I reconfirmed my kosher food, it was not on the plane."
Pros: "Good food and entitemint"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "Flight from SFO to YYZ left late"
Cons: "The crew was fine but not overly friendly or helpful. They got the job done. I know that your coach seats are fairly standard in the industry. I just find the leg room to be too tight for a long distance flight."
Cons: "Leg room is HORRIBLE for a man 6 feet tall"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours with no credible explanation. Seating changed after booking. Seating space cramped. Plane uncomfortably worm. Excessive penalty for missed flight. Will not fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Left unattended in wheelchair at two stages"
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Pros: "Dreamliner!!!"
Cons: "The variety of new movies was somewhat limited when compared to United."
Pros: "Leg room is comfortable"
Cons: "Flight had one and half hour delay. I did not get E-mail reminder for Check-in, for my return flight from Toronto."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my other flight being late."
Cons: "Some crew members were not always kind."
Pros: "Good service, very attentive. Breakfast needs improvement"
Cons: "The middle seat is horrible, no room to even bend over to reach my bag which was at my feet. Very uncomfortable and no room to put the elbows because the other two seats take the elbow rests . Make it a double one or something because I couldn't even fall asleep for a second plus I got a back ache throughout the"
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the plane right by the bathroom in the middle seat, the lady to the right had the same idea that these seats were very bad cause they don't have much space as the others also it's right next to the bathroom,, were you get to enjoy the noise from the bathroom door to flushing not include the smell,,, I wonder why you guy charge more for seats with space and you don't give discount for the worst seats in the plane,,, The lady complained and they changed here seat I had to stay there and not be able to sleep for more than 5 mints, from the reasons that I said before,,, by far the worst experience,"
Pros: "Did like the crew but didn't like the food at all.was really bad. It was cold very cold and the screen didn't work so I couldn't see the movies."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Coach is miserably small and the lights were dimmed far too late"
Pros: "The Boeing airplane was either new or upgraded with plenty of in flight entertainment. In addition it was clean and fresh. The seats seemed to have more legroom than some I have flown. I could actually use my notebook on the tray stand. I was traveling on the same plane with my wife but we could only get separate seats. I decided to ask before boarding if they could put us together for such a long flight and they took my boarding pass and actually tried. The lady I checked in with was extremely gracious. She passed our info along to the head attendant on the flight who came and found us and told us she had found seats together. We had already done some seat switching with the kind people around us and managed to get together. The head attendant was happy for us."
Cons: "Long flight, when we got close to Tel Aviv, a guy attendant who wasn't on my side yelled at me from the other ailse and scolded me for not being locked in 30 minutes ahead of time and threatened to write me up. He was red faced. The head flight attendant made a call over the intercom, I jumped up and started stowing my computer and he comes by 30 seconds later and literally yelled across the plane. He must have had to clean a bathroom up that someone let loose in. I looked on the flight time register on the screen when I was locked in and we were 35 minutes out. Not quite a rule breaker was I."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "787 atmospherics good - humidity, etc Decent price for this flight"
Cons: "Economy Cabin one of the most uncomfortable. Attendants were angry, short and disgruntled the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was one of the more uncomfortable flights I've taken across the Atlantic, and I fly multiple times per year. The flight attendents were nasty, sarcastic, and unkind. I heard them bickering between themselves throughout the flight, which was very uncomfortable to hear as a passenger. The kosher food was barely edible. The seats were small and uncomfortable. I am under 5'5" and on the small side, and I could barely fit in my seat. I will think twice before flying Air Canada again, and I will tell other people about my experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew - something I have learned to appreciate over the years."
Cons: "Chairs were small and I was uncomfortable. Food wasn't good."
Pros: "Same as stated above"
Cons: "Food, my kids refused to eat."
Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"
Pros: "Crew were really friendly and very courteous."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."
Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had pain and I didn’t know if the crew had any pain medication."
Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"
Pros: "We left on time and got in a bit early leg room was ok for me."
Cons: "It's a long flight."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Pros: "Spacy seats. Great entertainment. In time."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food was terrible the service wasn't great not even one the flight attendant walked by and offered bottles of water or dessert besides the 2 meals served. The restroom always were out of tissu paper and were not maintained."
Pros: "Flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The crew was not very nice. The electric plug didn't work"
Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"
Pros: "I was hesitant to travel with united but my flight was very comfortable and the 10 hour flight felt like 3. Smooth ride and landing. Thumps up to the captin I had a very good experience from the time I checked in in Ranold Regen till I arrived Tel Aviv"
Cons: "The food was not very good"
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "The new business seat gives improved comfort. New airplane smell."
Cons: "Flight was late close to one hour because of catering. No prior notices - we were left to stand for more than an hour in front of gate. Surely and nasty elderly citizens made up the flight crew including pilots. About the same service you get from a Siberian gulag prison guard. No communications from pilots. Despite delays and turbulence we were kept in the dark."
Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "Crow was great , was very nice flight actually !"
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Pros: "Very profesional crew with positive attitude Take off and landing within the planed time schedule"
Cons: "Not enough movies with Hebrew subtitles For people with hearing problems English subtitles for all movies can help"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."
Cons: "Self boarding is really a mess. some staff members were barely speaking english. entertainment system can be upgraded ( larger screens)"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
