Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Really helpful people."
Cons: "Seats are so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "Friendly and wellmennerd team."
Pros: "Crew . Food . Service was great ."
Cons: "Every things was good ."
Cons: "Qatar Airways are the best"

Pros: "Entertainment, vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Bit more comfortable seat"
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Pros: "I had a slight problem with my visa to the country of my final destination but the check in counter crew and management were very polite, helpful and most of all empathetic. Problem was resolved and, All's well that ends wel."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Passengers in the back seat kept shaking my seat. I told them to stop, but they kept doing that."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I notice when things go well. There is nothing I can complain about with Qatar; their equipment is up-to-date; their service is first-rate; their record for on-time departures and arrivals is excellent, and their food is good! I will gladly fly with them in the future."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Pros: "Seat features. Extensive beverage and food menus. Great IFE system"
Cons: "Had to flag down crew for pre-departure beverage and hot towel. They are usually more attentive"

Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."
Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."

Pros: "On Time good service"
Cons: "Serving alcohol on board"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "Worst service from hyd to doha"
Cons: "I have travelled fro hyderabad to miami,i had a bad experience at hyderabad air port at qatar counter for baggage Please baggage standards should be unique across all airports travelling from miami they accepted the laptop bag plus 7kg small trolley cabin luggage In retun journey qatar pople said laptop and small trolly bag should be of 7kg .my laptop itself 6kgs is there and they charged me 65usd as excess luggage. I said iwas not charged extra at miami why you are charging extra here ,they said rules are different at miami but in hyderabad this is the case I am very much frustrated on this service ,atleast once in a year i will travell on qatar from next time i never prefer to travel on this carrier. Thanks a lot for great qatar servic"
Pros: "The crew is very kind and friendly. Seats on the A330 are more comfortable than on 787, was lucky with exit row this time. Boarding in Stockholm good while in Doha a little messy. Gate staff not so friendly in Doha. In Stockholm checkin was excellent!"
Cons: "Seats on 787. Food in general with chicken main and bread from Doha very poor."
Cons: "I got the last meal. For dessert I was given a hard roll, no cheese, no packaged water, no feta salad. I was bumped and stepped on by the crew with no apology. Food i did get was barely eatable."
Pros: "The Airbus A380 double decker was very roomy and a wonderful plane to fly on. I loved this flight and it seemed like the flight breezed past very quickly. They had all of the star wars movies so I was very happy. Oh and the kids meals on these flights are huge. They seem bigger than the adult meals. So your child will not be going hungry for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was very strange. We had a 4 hour layover. We had to stay out in the hallway until about 30 minutes before boarding began. This was uncomfortable for passengers as there were very few seats and many took to sitting on the floor. The segregated room for boarding had plenty of seats but was locked off for some reason. We literally only got into the room just 5 minutes before we boarded. I thought this entire process was very backward. They need to let passengers use the room for longer periods. It was pretty stupid that we had to sit on the floor because they wont allow people to sit in the room with the chairs..."
Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"
Cons: "Boarding of all economy passengers was done on first come and stand in line, first served basis with no zone separation. This caused aisle congestion. I was randomly asked to check in my standard size carry one although many passengers with larger bags were allowed to take them with them. Overall there was a lack of planned approach."
Pros: "The food was excellent, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "There was a delay on the boarding and they didn't provide a reason."
Pros: "There were many comforts to the plane even in economy."
Cons: "There is little leg room in economy for someone over 5’11”"
Pros: "Good crew unlike previous experience a few months ago"

Pros: "Great service, great crew! If available, will choose Lufthansa for my next flight! Friendly crew, smooth flying, great entertainment choices."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. The timing of the flight arrival and immigration was perfect. More than enough time to clear that process. The airline crew on board was professional and pleasaht"
Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."
Pros: "Crew. Courteous, engaging and supportive, of-course with a smile."
Cons: "Nothing on this flight"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work most of flight and when it did required payment."

Pros: "The seats were appropriately spaced for leg room. The food was simple yet palatable"
Pros: "Crews were very friendly"

Cons: "I like wathcing European movies (German, French, etc.) when flying LH, but unfortunately they rarely have English subtitles."
Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."
Pros: "The temperature was moderate, not as cold as ususl. Stewards were very nice."
Cons: "Our seats were at the very back and the flight was quite bumpy at times. It left a bit late due to passengers not showing up and having to remove luggage. They wouldn't allow my husband to use his backpack as a personal item he had to count it as a carryon despite others having more carryon items."
Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"
Pros: "Everything. The flight was great and the staff were awesome. Thanks Lufthansa."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "This was my first trip to Europe and I flew Lufthansa. They really have it together on this airline. From the two meals served to the alcohol option I didn't choose, to the entertainment options on the screens to the attendants onboard. I can't find one fault with this process. I saved hundreds of dollars through this site! I'm currently only to my original destination and will update when I've returned to American soil."
Cons: "I wish I had a foot rest like those in first class, but then I understand why I don't."
Pros: "The service was fast. The employees were kind."

Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"
Cons: "no tv and long flight. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Great service and amenities!"
Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."
Pros: "The staff and food was great!"
Cons: "Seats are very close. Not comfortable when neighbors are big and fake up my space!"
Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"
Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"
Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."
Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."
Pros: "The flight left late and arrived late. I had ordered a wheelchair, for me. At the gate there were two of them for about 20 people. The people (personell) Spoke amost no English and only poor German. I was told to WALK, because no chair was avaailable or would arrive in due time. ABSOLUTE CHAOS: The 45 minutes delay at landing did not enhance things -- missed my connecting train. Dr, W. Hartwig"
Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."
Cons: "Poor cabin crew behavior. Gate agent kind of reprimanded passengers to carry only one bag to cabin almost shouting at people in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Spicy food"
Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."
Cons: "The check in process was incredibly inefficient. I have never had to wait so long to check in my bags. The attendants were chatting and laughing while not helping customers and customers were unfairly taken from the middle of the line to jump the queue."
Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "It was overbooked."
Pros: "Food and eating with proper utensils, Brandy after dinner"
Cons: "Entrainment center glitch. Headphone quality."
Pros: "Great flight service, lots of good food, and plenty of fluids."
Pros: "Thank you very much for taking care of my mother she is 79 years old doesn't speak English. and needed wheel chair. and she was thrilled happy and very comfortable thruw all your flights. I want to thank you personally from the bottom of my heart because it's very hard for me to send her overseas with her condition and no language. you guys awesome thank you very much again."
Pros: "I usually fly Delta, and was amazed how much nicer Lufthansa is than Delta. I'll plan to use LH more often in the future."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Pros: "nice food great crew"
Cons: "the washrooms need more cleaning during this long flight messy boarding"
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."
Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Pros: "The boarding in time, the crew very nice people."
Cons: "The fly Montreal-Vancouver was a bit long and not food. The fly Seoul -Vancouver was ok but 9 hours sitting a little uncomfortable . The seats are very tiny ."
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."
Cons: "Minimal cabin service. Plane arrived late. Almost missed connection. Officious cabin attendant."
Cons: "My original flight supposed to be at 19:30 but went at 18:30,no body inform me about the change and i stuck in the airport for 4 hours more"
Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Cons: "The airport in Montreal was confusing for continuing flights - lines not labeled well and too long"
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Pros: "Once again, attendants were pleasant. Plane was clean"
Cons: "No snacks served, only beverages. We could have at least received one bag of nuts/chips for the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"
Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Pros: "the boarding process was smooth and organized."
Cons: "food should be part of the ticket and not extra payment. In a 5 to 6 hours of flight there should be at least some snacks offered."
Cons: "One hour late due to mechanical issue. There was very crowed thru US custom in Toranto. Took 1.5 hours to completed US custom."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "BOARDED LATE AND IN GATES VERY FAR FROM CHECKING. The (solitary) crew member did not speak French. Everything she said in French was unintelligible- very offensive (and disturbing) for Francophone passengers such as myself. And for a Canadian carrier- This shows no respect for our pluralism. When we book online and try to pick priority seating, then find out that the plane is so small that the 9th row means 9 out of 12 or something, this feels like a con. Especially when we pay extra. Stop making people pay for seats that don't get them any priority boarding (Zone 3!) and offer no real advantage."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that 10 minutes before we were suppose to originally board the staff at DTW was trying to get people to give up seats because they oversold the flight which should have taken care of before that. It also doesn't help that the flight was late arriving and unboarding so that it could be reboard by new customers and updates were unhelpful and useless when attached to the plea for someone to give up their seats. 0 out of 5 stars...would NOT recommend."
Pros: "They had brand new film releases."
Cons: "I got bumped. Even though, I made my flight on time AND had chosen my seat over a month ago, air Canada decided to bump me from my international flight. I was able to get a seat but not the seat I would have chosen (I'm six foot, I can't sit by the window). Since it was so crowded, I couldn't stretch my legs or use the loo. Finally I PAID for the seat I was bumped from; no one can tell me when I'll get reimbursed."
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, many whom seemed to enjoy their jobs and wanted to make everything a pleasant experience. Was used to Delta Airlines for over 20 years and they became the nightmare airline for Cincinnati. Best of luck to Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Food was no where near as good as the service, needs work in this area."
Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, and air canada staff worked hard to get me to my destination with a different connecting flight."
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."
Cons: "I was assigned a seat in the last row on the plane. during the flight two stewardesses sat in the area behind me. they were VERY LOUD during all the flight. So loud that I couldn't read the book I brought along. This was the leg from DTW to DEN."
Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"

Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"
Cons: "More leg room and on time!"
Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."

Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."

Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"

Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Pros: "Can you imagine there's no movies or games during this 12-hour international flight? It's very hard and made the trip much more longer and so tired. I suggest the airline to do something to make the customers happy, such as to issue a free air ticket or a big coupon for my next trip."
Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."
Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."
Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"
Pros: "It's hard to understand why the flight attendants cannot be consistently polite when communicating with customers."
Cons: "Sour attitude of one of the flight attendants. The age of attendants doesn't bother me, just when they are jaded and surly, especially on a transPacific flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"
Cons: "lost bags missed flights rude staff no concern for helping figure out next step"
Cons: "delay of about 1 hour, we almost missed our international flight from beigin"
Pros: "הצוות היה מאוד נחמד. האוכל היה בינוני וכך גם איכות הסרטים."
Cons: "אינטרנט אלחוטי חינם. לעדכן באופן ברור שהצ׳ק נסגר מוקדם (כשעה ומשהו לפני המראה) עקב המרחק הגדול בשדה. כמעט פספסתי את הטיסה."
Pros: "Nothing at all. I didn’t like anything."
Cons: "They provided us such poor service. They barely spoke english which should be required as it became problematic. Moreover my father recently had knee replacement ahrgedy. After a 12 hour flight he NEEDED. a wheelchair. They refused to give him one."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lost baggage. This happens though and I'm understanding. But there has been no assistance or appearance of any effort to locate my bag. At this point we don't know where it is. The second i asked for compensation so i could purchase a change of clothes they stated to try and blame me and refused to offer me anything. So yup. Don't recommend. I won't be flying on them again."
Pros: "Good service - food/beverages etc"
Cons: "Was stinky at the rear seats near the toilets"
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing I can say that I liked about China Eastern flight. See comments below."
Cons: "Service was horrible. Flight got delayed by 10 hours and staff expected us to wait at the gate till the next flight."
Pros: "Flew business class on their 777's to and from LAX/Shanghai. Unbeatable service at LAX where the gate agent escorted us through security onto the plane and on the ground in Shanghai and Beijing where ground personnel were on hand to help you make your connections. Great service in both economy and business class. (Domestic economy-full hot meal service with choice of entree!!) China Eastern will be my choice for travel to China."
Pros: "Flight attendants."
Cons: "Late departure and very late arrival in Beijing. Damaged checked-in luggage."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. All announcements were made in both Mandarin and English, which I appreciated a lot. Wifi was relatively good at the Kunming airport."
Cons: "There was an interim stop in Kunming that I did not see anywhere on the schedule. We went through immigration there, which was confusing to both me and the immigration officials. It was difficult to figure out how to get to the connecting flight."
Pros: "As always, I was impressed by the high level of professionalism."

Cons: "Food, dirty bathroom, smells badly and more"
Pros: "Definitely one of the best airline travel experiences of my life."
Cons: "The food has room for improvement but was decent."

Pros: "Crew is so nice to help my family with wheeldriver."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "It was very unorganized & when asking for information the staff members of China eastern were unhelpful & unreliable & Very UNORGANIZED!"
Pros: "They never tried to solve problem for the customer but threaten me if I did not have the problem fixed they have the right to refuse me."
Cons: "Because of flight delay out of Singapore I missed my connection in Shanghai. The process of rebooking took too long. Not enough desk agents handling rebooking for the number of people stranded. After passengers are rebooked there needs to be a procedure to accommodate those who will need a hotel . Where do we go to get on the hotel shuttle? What line and where to wait and line up? Had a hard time finding somebody who knew what to do."
Cons: "Not that it was China Eastern's fault, but my travel agency illegally cancelled my reservation without my consent. I had to buy another ticket last minute. The flight itself, however, was comfortable."
Pros: "Staff was great, Restroom was clean"
Cons: "Food was sparse and only had Chinese food, no western options. Food menu on the screen was unavailable. Entertainment was weak."
Pros: "The Airbus plane & the crew"
Pros: "On time, comfortable. Great flying experience."
Cons: "This airline had horrible delays with no updates, I was stuck at a layover for four additional hours than scheduled- this is unacceptable service."
Cons: "There is no email update after flight got cancelled. I try to reach customer service, they open M - F 9:00 to 5:00 . when you run international services customer service should be open 24/7. Try to contact customer service the number on website no help. Really disappointed. Next time if I have to fly I have to think hundred time. Even my family try to find out after cancelled flight no information updated on website. Even if I have to recommend friends and family tell them my experience to think twice. Hope in future it should be improve."
Pros: "The staff are pleasant"
Cons: "No updates on d flight sked n cause of delays"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and efficient. Flight was quick."
Cons: "Delayed on the ground at Shanghai airport. Only got 1 small packet of peanuts to eat so I was really hungry. So maybe give a roll or something a bit more substantial."

Pros: "long delay."
Cons: "long delay and bad customer service."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stop people from chain smoking in the bathrooms. The cabin was filled with a dim haze throughout the flight."
Pros: "Got me from Kunming to Beijing."
Cons: "Crowded, late, no bus waiting on arrival in Beijing."
Pros: "Really enjoyed the food."
Cons: "Service from the airline outside of the aircraft was nonexistent. We had no direction from service people and were shuffled between three different customs lines before we ended up in the correct one at the Shanghai airport. With the airline not printing boarding passes for our connecting flight, it was an unexpected challenge having to get those printed and then recheck the bag which should have been checked all the way through. Our experience at the Shanghai airport and the nonexistent customer service from the airline was horrible. Trying to get that sorted and go through customs multiple times took three hours and much frustration."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The booking counter in KBV couldn't check me in for my connecting flight in Shanghai. This required me to wait in a number of lines in Shanghai, get a temporary visa, pick up my luggage, check in again and repeat immigration and security-early in the morning with a flight to catch. Also, I tried to speed thing up by attempting to use the Priority check-in, thinking that my hurried situation would be enough to convince the counterperson to help me. NOPE. Even though there was zero line, he refused to help and treated my like a peasant. I've never been treated that way at an airport before. Extremely rude and frustrating for us. Oh, and then on the flight back to Tokyo, there was a fight between two men in the aisle. I'm not kidding. I will never fly this airline again. It was cheap. And I should have known better."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to a business class. Very attentive staff."
Cons: "It was late."
Cons: "Entertainment Food"
Pros: "Everything was fine for me! Nothing special but fairly comfortable and no bad delays."
Cons: "No drink was provided"
Cons: "Bad Seat Pitch"
Cons: "Just the passengers continuing on to Hangzhou were told to wait on the plane. Then after all the other passengers left, we were told to get off as well. Then we were told to stand and wait for at least 20 minutes, then routed through the airport to join the first group of passengers on the plane to go through immigration, where one of the immigration officers was yelling out us. Then we had to wait at least another 20 minutes before we were led to the check-in counter where we each person needed to get new boarding passes. This process took at least a half hour. Then we had to re-enter the regular security line to reboard our flight. When we landed in Hangzhou, this process was essentially repeated, except that this time we collected our checked bags and went through customs before having to go to the check-in counter, again, get a new boarding pass, again, and then go through regular security to continue the remaining leg of my flight. I've never seen such an inefficient transit procedure in my life!"
Pros: "Nothing. It was cancelled."
Cons: "That it was cancelled."
