Pros: "Great crew!!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow!"
Pros: "Crew is always friendly"
Cons: "Aircraft broke, had to route me to an additional three stops just to get me home and through the night. Also, still unsure of where my checked baggage is."
Pros: "Seats in economy are never comfortable. And someone also reclines their seat. But overall bathrooms were clean and food was good. Really no complaints about the flight itself or the crew!"
Cons: "Carry ons are too big! People should not be allowed to bring a piece of luggage inside the cabin. They are very heavy and some people cannot even lift them to place them in overhead compartment. Makes boarding slower and more complicated. Seats need to be a little wider. If a big person sits next"
Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"
Pros: "Seat comfortable and amazing crew"
Cons: "Choice of movies somewhat limited"
Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."
Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."
Pros: "Movies were good, once in flight it was a smooth ride"
Cons: "Communicate better during the delay"
Cons: "Better food and more water."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Didn't love that my 1st flight got off at gate G. And connecting flight was at gate C on the other end of the airport."
Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"
Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"
Pros: "Staff was great and friendly to talk too. The greeted every flier and it was a good flight."
Pros: "Wonderful service. Staff was attentive and helpful. Flight was great. I got to watch a couple movies and was able to retrieve my oversized luggage easily and even quickly. Thank you, Delta!"
Cons: "I’m not a seasoned traveler and packed some needed items for our home out-of-state in an oversized bag. That bag ended up costing me $200 extra at check-in. I could’ve Fed-ex’d for cheaper or put into two separate bags for cheaper. Then, my flight was delayed an hour."
Pros: "The landing!"
Pros: "The service on our flight was absolutely amazing, the food was surprisingly great, and the long ride was as comfortable as it could have been in an economy booking."
Cons: "My entertainment pad malfunctioned the whole time, even after it was reset. Thankfully I had enough things to keep me busy on my own, but it still would have been nice to have."

Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."
Pros: "The plane left on time if not a bit early."
Cons: "With the exception of 1 really nice flight attendant all the others were extremely moody and not helpful. I didn’t see one of them smile through the whole flight like they were just going through the motions. I’ve worked in jobs where you have to deal with the general public but you have a job to do and must smile and do your best to be helpful. I felt intimidated to even ask for anything like I was wasting their time. I love flying Delta and this was my worst experience yet."

Cons: "Very easy and fast"
Pros: "It was very good flight"

Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable on plane! Need more room!"

Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ... wish I had received text notice instead of email so I could have enjoyed the extra hours of vacation instead of sitting at airport."

Pros: "Attendants were courteous quick and attentive. On board entertainment was awesome. Kept us fed with main course snacks and beverages throughout. Made a 10 hour flight bearable."

Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "The entertainment program was exceptional."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly and gave the impression they were tired of their jobs. The afternoon 'snack' pizza disguised as a hot-pocket in a small box was served 40 minutes before landing. This snack wasn't enough and wa served far too late for a flight that lasted 11 hours."
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "More recent movies"

Cons: "Satisfied all around..."
Pros: "Good overall service level of AA"
Cons: "USB-, and Audio plugs are misplaced in the AA Premium Economy seats. Acrobatic skills required to connect/disconnect devices"
Pros: "Not much to like. When do we get bicycle seats that require us to pedal the airplane?"
Cons: "Baggage showed up on the wrong carousel. Baggage staff very rude. Manager was perfect but no way to update the display when things get screwed up. I think they can afford more staff. Bags delivered the next day while some folks had to wait two days."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "They charged EUR 50 for the 1st bag of luggage on an international flight. I never heard this before."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, meals were served, flight was on time."
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats, poor food, rude flight staff. Doesn’t anyone at American Airlines smile. Don’t they understand that we can choose to fly with an airline that has friendly crew"
Pros: "Great classical music selection, great entertainment program. Unfortunately, not working for all, system was re booted but didn't work for all but for me"
Cons: "The special meal I requested was not available"
Pros: "The person I sat next to was kind, as was the crew."
Cons: "The seats in economy are too close to the row in front and too narrow. You can barely move. Its claustrophobic, even for a person not prone to it. I had to upgrade my seat to avoid this as I was in those horrid seats on the trip over. Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seat width, height, pitch and aisle width were absolute minimum. Very uncomfortable !!!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The precision of bookings thru airlines were right on the spot.."
Cons: "The long lay over.."
Pros: "Most everything was great"
Cons: "When you have an isle seat, it is very difficult to sleep when you get bumped by the flight attendants every time they pass you. Understanding that there is limited space, just giving feedback"
Pros: "Extra coffee/tea available outside of the standard food times."
Pros: "The plane and crew were good."
Cons: "The adult movie selection was not interesting. I ended up watching a children's Disney movie that proved to be more entertaining. What caused my discomfort during the flight was not due to British Airways or American Airlines, but rather was a problem at the Frankfurt terminal. I could not take a bottle of water thru the security check and there was no water fountain after the security check. I have a lot of food sensitivities and cannot drink bottled water. It was only at the end of the flight when I was desperate for water that I discovered I could get some tap water from a flight attendant."
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight and quick boarding time."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "It’s just a long flight there’s no way to change that."
Pros: "Plane was lightly booked so plenty of room to sit and storage space."
Cons: "Plane left FRA 25 min late and occured more delay during flight. Came into DFW with 50 min delay and had to go through TSA again for connecting flight - why? So missed the connecting flight to LAX and had to get rebooked."
Cons: "seats should be priced based on passengers' weight."
Pros: "Very punctual; courteous crew. Ver smooth ride"
Cons: "Nothing. It was excellent."
Pros: "The air stewardesses were extremely cordial and continuously asked if the passengers needed anything many times during the flight. It's a small gesture but I appreciated it very much. Free wifi (for movies/in-flight entertainment) was also a plus."
Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"
Pros: "Awesome service"
Pros: "Like the 777-200. Not bad seating for coach."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Germany we had to ride a bus out to the plane"
Cons: "We waited at the gate in Frankfurt once the plane was loaded for 40 minutes for the aircraft to get pushed back from the jetway . Waited another 25 minutes in Dallas for an operator to place the jetway to the aircraft. One of the stewardess we had was really rude."
Cons: "The electronic screen that shows movies etc. needs to be updated. Some of the functions did not work and those that did work were very difficult to get to work well. Disappointing. Obsolete technology."
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work which affected 6 passengers, rows 34 and 35. Flight attendants kept saying there was nothing they could do. They didn't return to give us an update. We had to ask three times to different attendants."
Cons: "Our flight was about 50 minutes late in boarding. American should have announced why it was late and an approximate time"
Cons: "Frankfurt was rebooked by AA to PHL connecting to LGA. LGA leg was cancelled. They wanted us to take a flight to LGA the next day. We got ticketed to DCA connecting to LGA same day. Finally arrived home after 18 hours of travel. NOT HAPPY. We don't blame AA for weather cancellation but it was not an easy trip home."
Cons: "They had the wrong flight times which made my connection impossible so they had to book a later flight for my wife and I, Did not get the seats we paid for and initially did not have us even sitting together until we insisted."
Pros: "Staff was extremeley courtous, helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Archiac entertainment system. The plane has not been upgraded for what seems like at least a couple of decades."
Pros: "Everything was new, lots of leg room, everyone was nice"
Cons: "The grill cheese didn't taste like grill cheese. It wasn't filling. Grill cheese, never again."
Pros: "Nothing: worst flight !"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful due to very old screens and a central streaming system that would not allow me to watch the movies I want when I want them. The food was not tasty at all and they served really hard and frozen ice cream as snack which was an awful choice considering how cold the plane was."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice, food was adequate."
Cons: "Boarding, not their fault but I was selected for extra security! Took me to a separate area, made me take off my shoes, pulled out the insoles, emptied my bags....and then left everything out for me to rearrange."
Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"
Cons: "Live Tv CNN did not work"
Cons: "I had reserved seats 31A and 15C for my flights 1561 and 6779, goinf Frankfurt to Dallas, and Dallas to San Jose. The charge for reserving seats was $182.03. Instead, I was put in mid-row seats 42D and 24E, on both flights. No notification or explanations from American Airlines or Kayak, and no refund...yet. Any comments?"
Pros: "Great flight, service was awesome!"
Cons: "Live TV on the flights"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for some reason (they kept changing) and I am really fed up with United allowing people to bring two pieces of cabin luggage onto small aircraft."
Pros: "yes, they were, thoroughly enjoyed my flight"
Pros: "Good movie selection. The crew in Edinburgh was wonderful."
Cons: "Chicago connection was a nightmare. 2 hrs to get thru customs and recheck bags and change terminals. We had to repeatedly ask where things were and what to do. And we are US citizens! I can't imagine what foreign visitors went thru."
Pros: "The checking kiosk with luggage check-in, weight station and automated ticket printing for boarding pass and luggage tag. Security checkpoint was smooth and moving fast. All above have vastly reduced stagnant check-in line at the check-in counters."
Cons: "Need more properly trained ground crew at baggage drop point (which is also the previously check-in counter) to ease the line and expedite the check-in. Also need more notification billboard along the long line to better inform the passagers what to expect at the security checkpoint."
Pros: "Every thing is with time No delay"
Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "Broken video monitor on my seat and window seat. Ripped and dirty pockets on all the back of the seats in the row in front of me. Just a feeling of disrepair."
Cons: "When I tried too cancel the flight. No body answered or responded too my emails. So I had too loose the 500 I spent on the flight even though I paid for the protection! I wasn’t even on the flight!"
Cons: "Delayed just like my first leg. Will never fly United again."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats for such a long flight, my seat didn’t recline, space was limited"
Pros: "On time, comfortable (enough)."
Cons: "Lost my second luggage wishes I paid $60 for it and no one couldn’t help"
Pros: "We seemed to fly faster to make up time"
Cons: "The seats are jokingly small and very uncomfortable. The boarding space was also small so the lines became very unorganized"
Cons: "I didn’t need a second breakfast at 10am, I’d much protégée- a better lunch."

Pros: "Good crew, good first class , quick boarding"
Cons: "WiFi was slow"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Always feels cramped, food not good."
Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."
Pros: "very kind crew members and flight was an hour early."
Cons: "The worst food on an airline ever...witnessed so much waste all around me. No one could eat it. Entertainment broken and sound quality awful."

Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed my connection"
Cons: "1 hr+ delay out of Newark"
Cons: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was clean,"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fairly nice and understanding .!"
Cons: "At first the flight was okay with minimal tuberlance , later in the flight the pilot seem as if she lost control at one point . Not to mention the landing was by far the worst landing ever . We were late and the landing was horrible , I thought we were going to crash. On top of that we were late which was a big inconvenience to find out my flight was a four hour delay and I had to be at work. I'm very unhappy . No reimbursement , no change of flight no courtesy flight. This is my first time flying and I'm NOT impressed at all.! I watch the girl throw around our luggage with mine being damaged as I watched her throw my bag around .! That is unfair and by far the worst experience ever!"
Pros: "Smooth and friendly efficient crew."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Newark to Ft. Lauderdale due to a 30 minute weather delay, and then an hour long delay imposed by Newark Airport due to air traffic volume. I had to sleep (barely due to all of the nighttime maintenance going on) on the damn floor by my standby gate because I couldn't afford a hotel and United refused to pay for one."
Pros: "on time and very polite.. good flight"
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Not much very bumpy"
Cons: "No food or drink due to turbulence, over 3 hours without"
Cons: "I was not notified of a late gate change and missed my flight."
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived half an hour early. The ride was smooth as could be. Flight attendants were courteous and helpful. They were personable and took their time out to give each customer the their best, even though the flight was quite full. I highly recommend this flight."

Pros: "Flight crew and ground crew are very professional."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very efficient."
Cons: "There was a gate change and it wasn't announced over the PA. The variety of food accessible was not what I expected."
Pros: "Customer service gave me a voucher for a cab to go to LaGuardia where they rebooked a flight for me."
Cons: "That the flight left early!!!! Also that it was overbooked which is probably why it left early. So disappointing when you've been traveling all morning across the world just to get home and finally land in the USA only to discover you will be waiting for many hours if you're lucky or another night if there isn't an opening for more tickets. Frankly it was a total loss of a day. The only chance to see my family. Should have arrived in Charleston at 6pm, and instead arrived at 11:45."
Cons: "Flying in general"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Flight to Newark was fine. 2 of the 4 crew members seemed rather impatient with both passengers and other crew members. Deep sighs and rolling of eyes.."
Cons: "I felt the two grouchy crew members were quite impatient w passengers. Snapped at and eyes rolled when I had to get to seat and cart was coming. Line of people behind me so she had no choice but to back up."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, people were courteous, service was as expected."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Plane was seven hours late. Entertainment system did not work."
Pros: "Food and drinks were great - even had three choices in Economy. Staff was great and attentive and seats were comfortable. Other than the screen problem mentioned everything else was great."
Cons: "The display screen was not calibrated, so if you pressed a button the button two buttons over would activate. This meant I could not watch movies or hear audio because those buttons didn't work. The staff rebooted the virtual Linux server for that seat, but this had no effect on the uncalibrated screen."
Pros: "The staff were very nice."
Cons: "I was really disappointed that we returned on a United flight. Completely different experience than Lufthansa flight going out. Food horrible, very uncomfortable small plane. I loved the Lufthansa flight going out to Edinburgh. Coming back through Newerk was horrible also. I would love to fly Luthansa again but I would have to be very careful that it's just them and not another airline going back. Horrible experience. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. I was in the last row and was lulled to sleep by the engines."
Cons: "I had to check my second bag because they had no room for it in the bins. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I got to take it for no charge, and didn't have to lug it through the sirport."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Boarding was swift, seat was fine, service was pleasant, flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a tiny, pixelated screen playing a few movies on loop. Felt like it was 20 years old. Food was fine, but the pre-landing snack was a very greasy, ham and cheese on pretzel roll sandwhich."
Cons: "You switched me to an earlier flight without asking is confirming with me. I almost missed the flight, had to check my bag at the gate, and started out my morning scrambling to get to the airport and through security. No one at united could tell me why it was changed. Un believable. This is not the kind of surprise that is welcomed or appreciated."
