Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Pontuality, hospitality"
Cons: "food, entertainment is null"
Cons: "seats and plane were old. Business class seats need an upgrade badly. They should discount the tickets if we're made to fly in 25 year old seats. Business class service was rushed. It was like the goal was to get your items up and collected early so the attendant could disappear for the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "I love the attendance of the host. The flight was smooth. People were friendly with me. The host spoke good English language, I almost missed my flight but I was helped to get on flight."

Pros: "Give out head phones and the food is not bad"
Cons: "Plane was late and took too long to board so that when we we t to take off we had lost our spot then waited for 3 hours to get going, about 90% of the passengers had a connecting flight which they obviously missed and then they blamed the weather. Sent us to a hotel in a ridiculously disorganized fashion for which they had 3 hours plus flight time to prepare for. New boarding passes were a mess and had to wait a long time to get mine printed cause they forgot to. In the morning in order to save money they sent us on a stupid early bus so that half of us could be sent back to the airport, so that meant we missed breakfast and the 2 hours plus of sleep."
Cons: "I was unable to travel with three suitcases, despite the fact that I was willing to pay for the third bag. I had to put some of my stuff in another bag and was charged overweight. What infuriates me is the fact that at no point of the web check in process I was warned about this. No warning, no email, nothing. I am never using Copa Airlines again and I am warning everyone I know not to use this third-rate airline ever!"
Pros: "A fly attendant try to make up for me for forgetting our lunch."
Cons: "the disorganization of the other costumers who were changing seats almost make me lose my connection. The crew did not serve our lunch."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 5 hours"

Cons: "We were delayed for a long time without much information given. I arrived 18 hours late to my destination and missed many important appointments."
Pros: "El entretenimiento y la atención de la tripulación"
Cons: "El abordaje debería hacerse de atrás hacia adelante, ya que es incómodo para los que estamos en lis asientos delanteros del pasillo cuando pasan los viajeros con carteras o maletas grandes También me gustaría que este cuestionario fuera en español"

Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Limited leg room for such a long flight. The person in front of my husband reclined their seat and he could barely move for the 8 hour flight. Check in process at Heathrow was not wonderful as there was plenty of seats but were not open for people to sit in. It was not pleasant holding a 33 pound toddler waiting in 30 minute line"
Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"
Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
Cons: "Business class crew was extremely rude and unfriendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time"

Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Planes were punctual and smooth flight"
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flying, arrived on time"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could have been more user friendly"
Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding was structured as usual"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. No reason was given. There seemed to be an issue with the maintenance log, which I overheard I arrived late to Piarco"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Pros: "GSP easy to navigate- easy option for WNC travelers"
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Pros: "I was 10 minutes late for the flight. People were still lined up to board and the customer service agent taking the tickets refused to accept mine and told me I would have to reschedule. Instead of allowing me to board in line with the other passengers, they choose to delay the flight by another 30 minutes to put in a request to pull my luggage from the flight. It would have been so much easier to just let me board. I've been a few minutes late before and have never been treated like that by any airline. Very disappointed in American Airlines."
Cons: "I was 10 minutes late for the flight. People were still lined up to board and the customer service agent taking the tickets refused to accept mine and told me I would have to reschedule.

It would have been so much easier to just let me board. I've been a few minutes late before and have never been treated like that by any airline. Very disappointed in American Airlines."
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "Movies I could plug in and go to sleep"
Cons: "Being woke up and asked if I want something to eat. I am sure others would disagree but I was exhausted and could not go back to sleep and I had already been up 30 hours."
Pros: "Great crew, prompt take-off and boarding / de-planing"
Cons: "Seats were dated and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing stood out as being particularly good."
Cons: "A 6-hour international flight should provide food and entertainment. I flew Toronto to Port of Spain. No free food (not even pretzels), no inflight entertainment system, cramped seats with poor legroom, grumpy flight attendants, an hour delayed due to disorganized boarding process."
Cons: "AC would always delay"
Pros: "The staff are friendly"
Cons: "They didnt say any information to the passengers who had connecting flights. No one us that all passengers with connecting flight need to check out their luggages and check it in again. Now my luggage is lost.."
Cons: "Giving your guest a cup of coffee is basic. To tell guest to get her own is a no no. Better training??"
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Pros: "It really sad to know on a 5 and a half hour flight they only offer coffee tea or soda ☹☹ . Never knew about the changes in purchasing a meal or snack.."
Cons: "Should have been informed somewhere about the changes in purchasing a meal."
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "Mpvie choices are terrible. They don’t know what “new releases” mean."
Pros: "Did not get to go"
Cons: "First flight was delayed so I missed my connection to Brazil, was left stranded in Toronto for 24h without a hotel or restaurant voucher."
Pros: "Great service wide enough seats. great company overall"
Cons: "it took so long to taxi and get off the plane. it wasnt a full flight and it took 30 minutes to get off the plane after landing"
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Pros: "Chairs and the space was very good."
Cons: "Crew and the food was very poor. This is the only long international flight 10 hours that served a night grate dinner and the crews got disappeared the rest of the flight and no breakfast."
Pros: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Cons: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My wife and I were seated in different rows."
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
Cons: "My husband went onto the plane in Toronto bite-free and left the plane in Toyko with over 20+ bites from what we assume were bed bug bites. This left us in a panic about dealing with bed bugs. Apparently, bed bugs on planes are becoming more common place! We've contacted Air Canada via email about a week ago and are waiting to hear back from them. Furthermore, the flight to and from Tokyo did not allow much time for sleeping. The flight attendants were going up and down the aisles very often with meals/snacks, drinks, duty-free, and charity requests. I was expecting a lull after the dinner meal where they would dim the lights and limit services for a few hours, but it did not happen. While impressive how many services were available it was a bit much and would have preferred less to allow for some quiet time. Finally, the return flight from Tokyo to Toronto there was a single flight attendant who was quite rude to the other attendants as well as passengers. While boarding a lady in front of us didn't have her boarding pass when entering the plane but was with her husband. This flight attendant asked her for the pass, and she said she knew where her seat was because her husband was right in front of her and they were sitting together (at this point we had our boarding passed check 3 times before even boarding the plane). The attendant raised her voice at the lady and told her it didn't matter and that she needed the pass. Within a few minutes, she was getting after a few flight attendants for insignificant things. This behavior continued throughout the flight, very unprofessional. This was my first time flying Air Canada and I was not impressed."
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ground staff were terrible and the ground crew mysteriously disappeared. Air conditioning was not working on the flight while it was on the ground. All passengers sweating for an hour on the tarmac. Flight arrived 2.5 hrs late resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "Very friendly assistants on the flight."
Cons: "Seats were not huge but on the cheapest flights it was sort of expected."
Cons: "I would like to see planes getting boarded from the back to the front. That way there are less people holding up traffic and you are not bumping someone who is already seated as you are going by."
Pros: "service, friendly attendants, amenities"
Cons: "Wish I could select no stars"
Cons: "Air Canada stopped flying to SLC while we we're on our trip. so it made the connections to other flights after getting to Toronto (from Amsterdam) really tricky and tight on time. While on the flight from Amsterdam, things were great, but that stress of being rerouted was not great..."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system including film festival movies and shorts to pass the time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Very poor pre-boarding area in San Francisco, but I don't think it's Air Canada's fault. Poorly organized seating in the pre-boarding"
Cons: "I felt the experience was quite disorganized - the boarding of the plane was all over the place so that people were boarding all at the same time rather than in their groups. There was NO entertainment unless you downloaded an app and we received no morning coffee because it came too late and plane was landing! No water was offered as I've experienced in previous flights (aside from the dinner time water) and had to pay for wine."
Pros: "Crew and flight were okay."
Cons: "Reception and sound quality was poor."
Pros: "entertainment choices"
Cons: "boarding process crew not helpful in baggage storage"
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "with more than two hours delay and they changed the gates with little or no notice."
Pros: "The food was decent and the snack was good too -- a small hot pizza."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Pros: "Extra leg room even though I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "Long wait at the Claims Dept. because my luggage was broken."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Pros: "On the whole it was a pleasant experience despite the flight being late."
Cons: "I thought that the flight being delayed by almost 2 hours was terrible. That should not have happened."
Pros: "Staff on air canada flights are always pleasant. Movies make the flight go by quickly - good selection."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for reasons that were not communicated to the waiting passengers. The plane was there and seemed ready to go. Perhaps they were fueling up, unsure. Those around me were getting restless as many had connecting flights that were being impacted. Perhaps if updates were given as to why the delay was taking place, it would have settled some of the passengers."
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating and the flight itself was great"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and almost missed our connection"
Cons: "Air Canada ROUGE to Dublin was a nightmare. Small seats. Could not hear the announcements. When I asked the staff to repeat the information, I was assured that they would. They did not. Since the flight was late on takeoff and connections were lost this was critical. Overhead latches were not checked prior to landing. One opened during landing. Only because the pilot landed gently, nothing fell on the people in the seats. Entertainment!! nothing. You need to have downloaded an app to use your electronic device or rent an Ipad. More money in their pocket."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Cons: "Confusion at every airline because air canaduh forgot to release funds to other lines."
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed and we were not kept informed. In fact, the airport boards still displayed that this flight was on time, which was not correct. I kept getting emails of a change in schedule, but no reason was given by personnel at the gate. This was really a bad situation for me as I was meeting my daughter in Toronto who was flying alone with her infant son and she needed my help."
Pros: "The flying part"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."
Cons: "We took off about three hours late because of a small mechanical problem discovered after we boarded. The plane had been sitting at Dulles for 12 hours. Couldn't it have been checked earlier in the day?"
Pros: "Departed and landed on time; checked luggage returned in a relatively short period of time; crew pleasant; plane reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "In order to access the bus which took passengers to the plane required going down three flights of stairs and two flights up to the plane. This made carry on luggage and personal bag difficult."
Pros: "I liked the cabin and the many drinks."
Cons: "Too much food offered and it wasn't of any real quality, so processed and carb heavy. There was a maintenance issue with our screens for a few hours, that was a little disappointing."
Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Not much legroom in economy"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."
Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."
Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."
Pros: "Customer service and everything else was great"
Cons: "Getting delayed. We were supposed to leave at 10 something PM but instead kept getting delayed until we finally left at 1:45am. That to me killed my overall experience for that flight considering that it's an 8 hour flight and that I needed to come back on that Monday. Less time do stuff for the weekend."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "I had broken table on my seat, then I needed to jump for eating several times."
Pros: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "there was a seven hour delay to our departure Food was pretty bad, entertainment system was broken"
Cons: "Departing 5 flights out of gate A1 in Dulles"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food and snacks were good."
Cons: "By the time I got to my seat all overhead bins by my seat were all full so I had to take my carryon towards middle of the plane to place it in an overhead bin. I also had to remember to write down the number of that bin so I could retrieve my carryon at the end of my flight.Toilet was not very clean."
Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"
Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."
Pros: "Freebies- free headset, free movies, both dinner and breakfast served , free beer & wine, free bag check. They didn't even try to nickel and dime me."
Pros: "Until they can make the chair recline backwards a little more (which, space issues may never allow for and I acknowledge this), and give food a bit more substantial then it won’t be 5 stars. However, exceptional stewartess and captains with humor made this 14 hour flight bearable."
Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."
Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Cons: "Three hours delay when all aboard already due to “technical difficulties” and then we had to change plane. The whole entertainment system did not work. No apology or explanation."
Pros: "No delays for flight, despite weather."
Cons: "Lack of legroom or recline in seats. I know it’s economy, but come on. We’re not sardines."
Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "I flew with 1 child and 1 infant and there was no help, not at check in, not at boarding nor from the crew on board. I requested a bassinet before the flight over the phone and didn't get it. There was an issue with the infant ticket and the United check in agent was incompetent to fix it, which made us late for boarding. No one helped me at boarding with taking the stroller from me. On board the crew members were annoyed when I ask for some hot water for a baby bottle. And it's sad that children don't get a kid's meal ( which we received flying with many other airlines) and have to eat the uneatable adult meal. That was my first and last time flying with United."
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "My connection was clear across the airport, it was quite the trek when the second flight was already boarding"
Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "Good service and environment"
Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"
Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
