Pros: "Keep it up with great services. !! Thank you!"
Pros: "One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!"
Cons: "I honestly don’t have an answer for this, I guess these kind of crew should not on board especially in first class!"
Pros: "I was i business class and the crew were very good"
Cons: "nothing as it was not a long flight, only 3 hours"
Pros: "Flight was good with no turbulence. Crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "Problems with monitor, went down a couple of times. Would like a better movie selection. Food used to be better. Even the dessert was not what I used to get before. Felt like the legroom got tighter too."
Cons: "Never made it to Chicago on original flight due to delays."
Pros: "Customer service and efficiency"
Cons: "The delay because of a software glitch"
Pros: "Entrees were great and we appreciated receiving two meals. Like the bottle of water, blanket and pillow."

Cons: "Boarding in EU was chaotic. They didn't board on groups. Slow check in at Munich."
Pros: "The flight was good! Much better than US domestic carriers with comfortable seats and a good layout to the aircraft."
Cons: "Food was good, not great. Crew was attentive but missed being great by one notch and the flight could have been faster. All trifling details. But overall... If they didn't run out of chicken on the flight"
Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"
Pros: "Plane was clean and overall the service was good. The new terminal and gate at Helsinki are very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and chaotic. The seats could have been more comfortable for a tall person. Finnair also likes to nickel and dime."
Pros: "Great crew and discovered blueberry juice."
Pros: "was on time. Small airport, convenient transit without passport control,"
Cons: "Small flight, longer flying time. Almost no service."
Pros: "Professional staff. Easy boarding."
Cons: "entertainment seemed more oriented towards Asian passengers"
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "My family's seats were separated by several rows. The airport gate was not manned until several minutes before boarding time. We had to ride a bus to board the plane. There was an extra passport check. The plane had a very old and outdated entertainment system."
Pros: "The gluten free meal was pretty bad."
Cons: "Sellling snacks during the flight (to a captive clientele) makes the process noticibly less pleasant than in the days when Finnair (generously) provided snacks to everyone."
Cons: "You have canceled my flight and you have just sent me an email."
Pros: "Excelente timing and organized to take us to the plane"
Cons: "No crew speak very good English it was really difficult to understand them"

Pros: "Liked the Airbus seating on Finnair better than American's Boeing 777 seating."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "great flight. a little cofusingto get the right airline"
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. It was a short flight and we didn't get a meal, so it is hard to judge."
Cons: "My seat was backwards and I was sitting facing the salon."
Pros: "could change to extra legroom on the day without extra charge"
Cons: "no individual entertainment console, and only certain seats had power outlets."
Pros: "crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "had to be bussed to different part of airport to board plane no sound on the entertainment console"
Pros: "Crewmembers were professional and nice!"
Cons: "Snack and meal were not so tasty, and the descending before landing was really uncomfortable."
Cons: "Crew members were almost non-existent. Saw them beginning and end of flight only and this was not even red eye flight. Food quality was very poor for premium seating. Many on board had to approach flight crew in back of cabin to get something to drink throughout he 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Seemed to be a little more leg room than usual. Crew was courteous and efficient. It was an American Airlines trans-Atlantic flight that arrived early. Overall a good flight."
Cons: "The response of the American Airlines entertainment system is as slow as pond water, although the choice of entertainment was very good."
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Pros: "Wonderful service and care from crew."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Finnair subcontract to British Airways so this was a BA flight at a better price. Flight was far from full enabling me to stretch out."
Cons: "Unable to pre select seats because the arrangement makes you neither a full BA or Finnair customer. Food was just about edible and that was the better non vegetable option. The plane was old and the in in seat screens were old too, with poor resolution (no touch screen to illustrate the aging technology). Although the entertainment selection was relatively current the aging connection in the arm rest, coupled with cheap ear buds made for a poor listening experience."
Pros: "Flghr was operated by American Airline Flight was surbooked and I was lucky enough to be upgraded in business class Crew members were great, service excellent MK"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding waiting for bus. Bus out to plane. After boarding, horrible stench of fuel fumes inside plane. Probably very unhealthy and carcinogenic."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Pre boading not enforced, all passengers boarding at the same."
Pros: "I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!"
Pros: "This was actually a USAirways flight now rebranded as American. A lot of people had to check baggage. There was no in-seat video entertainment. The crew were surly."
Pros: "Got a very nice vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew friendly"
Cons: "My seat and table were dirty and sticky. We had a 45 min delay. I was seated in the middle of the plane and received my meal lady and of course had no more meal choice available since they had run out . For the snack I also was given a different meal than my seat neighbor"
Cons: "More staff needed at security clearance"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after boarding us and letting us sit on the plane on the rollway for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Luggage did not get there. Still is missing. No food. No complementary beverage offered period. Lousy all around."
Pros: "Selection of movies and stewardes."
Pros: "Excellent polite crew. Good good and regular drink service. Very quiet aircraft and smooth flight in Economy."
Cons: "Seats are cramped for elbow room but leg room is OK. Reasonable comfort."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"
Pros: "Because someone was sitting in my seat, I was moved to one near the exit which has more legroom, without having to pay £28. The flight was on time and we were kept well informed of some chaos that was happening around push back."
Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."
Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."
Cons: "Most passengers had to pay for any food even water. No plugs at the seats."
Pros: "was a very unremarkable flight,"
Pros: "I liked your entertainment , movies, series lots to choose from."
Cons: "Your crew was horrible, I had assistance but they seemed bothered in helping me to help me get to my seat... I pity those who might assistance with that crew on future flights... Hopefully they will get the nicer crew from NY to London they were amazing."
Pros: "orderly boarding"
Cons: "seat assignment"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Not a lot of space"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Regular city hopper flight. Did what it’s supposed to. No entertainment no free coffee"
Cons: "I’d rather have the flight attendants have the safety instructions presented."
Pros: "Nice plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Water and all other food and drinks were for sale only. No entertainment."
Pros: "Plane left and landed on time."
Pros: "Crew were busy to make us more comfortable during the long trip, always smile. Food is better than I thought."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Nice, smooth flight, no complaints."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "No refreshments were offered."
Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable, choice of indian movies was not very good."
Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was absolutely no room for me in the seat. It was very cramped. The planes from Dublin to Munich and Munich to London looked dated and shabby. There was no entertainment available. The food was mediocre to bad."
Cons: "Overpriced, bare basics airline trading on past glories. Utter dross."
Pros: "Seats were leather, plane was clean"
Cons: "Delayed over half and hour"
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Pros: "Crew diffused grumbling of passengers for delays."
Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."
Pros: "arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "Nothing was included. No snacks, not even pretzels or peanuts. No beverages unless you wanted to pay for it. No entertainment, such as music or TV shows (flight too short for movies.)"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"
Pros: "I had no trouble keeping myself entertained on the 10-hour flight from London to California. There were tons of movies to choose from, and that's not even counting all the television shows that were available. It's good that there are so many options b/c there is no wifi available for purchase."
Cons: "Not really related to the flight itself, but this was my first time flying British Airways, and they have a policy where you can't pick your seat until 24-hour in advance unless you pay an extra fee to choose early. I thought this was similar to Southwest's early bird check-in where no one really opts to pay for such a feature, but apparently with British Airways, everyone pays to pick a seat early. I checked in to my flight literally one minute after the site opened up and there were only middle seats left. So, if you've never flown BA before and you have a long flight, you might want to pay the extra fee to choose your seat early."
Cons: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"
Pros: "British Air was excellent, but there was poor connectivity between them and Kayak(webjet)which left me seeking information even at the last minute"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Cons: "The sign said it would board by rows but they did general call and it was ridiculous on a flight this large. Nothing"
Pros: "The flight arrived early"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I did not receive it for 2 days."
Cons: "I bought my ticket through you and thanks to you my name was spelled wrong and I could not get my ticket. We called the company for hours but no one would help us. I had to buy a ticket that was double what I bought from you. I demand that I get a refund in full of $1300 and another $2700 to cover the ticket that I had to buy last minute. Email me at email@example.com about how we can go about doing this."
Pros: "Good information from the pilots. Very clean plane. Food ok. Seat pitch better than the American Airlines flight the other direction."
Cons: "Flight attendants disinterested or in the case of an older male flight attendant, impatient and rude."
Pros: "The crew was great, food was very good, the entertainment system was awesome"
Pros: "The flight itself was okay."
Cons: "The workers at Heathrow Airport said I did not need to check in for my flight. The last time I flew into Heathrow, there was a screw-up with my boarding pass that wasn't my fault, and I lost my flight because of it. I asked them to check me in again, just to be on the safe side. The ladies who work in check-in at Heathrow were very snippy with me and wouldn't sympathize with where I was coming from."
Plane was extremely hot. Our flight were pushed back and changed several times. This was too excessive for one trip. I don’t feel like the passengers were priority.
Pros: "Attendants were nice and cordial and made the flight seem like a breeze."
Cons: "Wish the plane was little bigger and not overbooked. It’s not good with people who have claustrophobia and bad anxiety."
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Bumped from business to coach and given a lousy $300 voucher."
Pros: "My crew was very attentive"
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."
Pros: "Crew good seat was better than than the last. Food really good"
Cons: "Shorter fly time"
Pros: "crew was miserable, they should retire, seems as if they do not like working with people, do not like their job. I have had many many flights with aa to know the difference"
Cons: "aa needs to have less flights departing, thus, having shorter take off wait time. get attendants that want to work and like their job."
Cons: "They cancelled the Flight and we had to book with Air France instead and made us late to our cruise"
Pros: "Great crew! Comfortable seats!"
Pros: "The only good thing on that plane was the crew. We where grounded in board for three hours because of a water leak in the kitchen... My seat had a hole were the ashtray used to be filled with garbage, the tray was filthy when I pulled it open, the overhead light didn't work"
Pros: "787 is modern and clean. Service was excellent. Seating layout is good."
Cons: "Food was good but not great. Gogo-in-flight Internet system is awful."
Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."
Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."
Pros: "The food and the snack was pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $20 for the 24 hours of Wi-Fi and it never worked On either flight. The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seatbelt was far too short for someone plus sized."
Pros: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."
Pros: "Informed in cell phone about flight delays."
Cons: "Delayed flight. I was informed of the three-timed delays. Eventually, the flight met the 2nd one."
Pros: "Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived early. Great crew. A321 is a nice aircraft. Good legroom."
Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"
Cons: "American Airlines DISCRIMINATES especially against the elderly! The airlines took my family of 6 off the flight that I booked 6 months in advance, and I had no flight out of Munich, Germany. I do not know why. I called and had them put us back on the flight. I paid extra for seats so that we could all sit together. The seats were given to others and my family could not sit together. The American Airlines employees were not helpful at all! The agent, Rowna, lied to us that we would be sitting together. They will not reimburse me for paying extra for seats that I did not get. The porter that pushed my mother in the wheelchair was more helpful than any employee."
Pros: "It was on time, crew members were great."
Cons: "My video screen watching a movie froze the last couple of hours. Let the attendants know, nothing ever happened and reminded them a few times over the 2 hr period."
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "The fact that we got home without our luggage missing"
Cons: "Flights were operated by American Airlines. The touch screens on the flights between Munich to Philadelphia. Apparently this was a known issue so I have no idea why the company didn't care to fix it. The food served was awful and tasteless. Not to mention that webjet once again made errors with out booking which the AA ground staff were nice enough to fix."
Pros: "Quick boarding, near empty flight."
Pros: "Movies and did not feel squished. Never had so much food service on a flight before."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Pros: "All of the flight was OK - nothing special -"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not like her job at all - like a robot - no smiles, frustrated and bored"
Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."
Cons: "This was actually an American Airline flight with other carrier names. I hate how AA tries to get passengers to pay more for seating. Even less than 24 hours before the flight they were trying to trick me into selecting a less desirable seat or pay an additional $93 per seat. It was only because we got to the airport early did better seats mysteriously become available. Even after selecting seats they still tried to get us to pay for "better" seating."
Cons: "Delayed flight out of Paris caused missed connection in Dallas."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "The smoothness of the ride"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed then we sat on plane for an hour before take off. Then movies i wanted to watch wouldnt work and crew was annoyed and not helpful. Food was ok... mashed potatoes would have been better as rice with chicken."
Pros: "When we printed out our boarding passes the two seats that we bought were not listed. The agent at the boarding gate was awesome and got us two seats together. The flight was smooth and the flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Pros: "Plane was not full and seats seemed spacious. Everything was on time."
Cons: "the entertainment systems was very slow to respond to the touch commands on the screen."
Pros: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled. There was not pilot"
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."
Cons: "The fact that American Airlines woman at the gate when we showed up at 12:10 pm for 12:15 pm flight asked us if we were the four people from the airberlin flight and told us that they knew our flight landed late but that we were too late to catch this flight home because they closed the gate. She barley gave us direction on what to do about getting a new flight or fudging our bags."
Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."
Cons: "The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL!!!!"
Pros: "It was a great experience. Flight on time, excellent seats, even though the reservation was made one day before flying out due to an emergency. Wonderful flight crew. Will suggest to others and fly likely again."
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."
Cons: "La comida mediocre"
Pros: "Entertainment and comfortable seats"
Cons: "They could have given us some snacks or something"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "they boarded zones 3, then 4, then 5.. utter chaos. When I asked a male flight attendant the premise for this he was rude and aggressive. My wife phoned CA to book a gluten free meal the day before. The process was so complex she gave up. 9 hours no food. I was reminded again why I hate this airline"
Cons: "Food at Air Canada. Very bad."
Pros: "Flight and service was very good"
Cons: "Crew showed up late and we subsequently were delayed."
Pros: "Nice staff friendly clean plane. Big plane for overseas. Enjoyed the variety of movies to watch for free."
Cons: "Bathroom started off clean. 1/2 way into the flight not so clean. At the end no paper and dirty. Lack of maintenance in this area is a concern."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. On time flight"
Cons: "Food is just so-so"
Cons: "Both Air Canada flights were late The agent responsible for boarding was an angry person"
Cons: "No regard to passengers schedules I was supposed to be home 4 hrs ago. Still waiting for the flight home. Family informed me that the weather is great back home. So not an excuse!"
Pros: "Disable passenger here. They were very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "Very good plane, comfortable and new. Food is okay but they were short with all the options (the back of the plane had no option for dinner due to lack of meals)"
Cons: "The crew were nice but lazy. Whenever someone called them through the chair system they just ignore the call. After a few time I tried to call them I just went to their area to ask things."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
Pros: "Long dealy, bad customer service"
Cons: "Long delay, changed gate 4 times, worst service"
Pros: "I was not on this flight I flew raleigh to Toronto to Montreal to geneVa but I bet it was a great flight!"
Pros: "On time great crew"
Cons: "Food, no leg space."
Pros: "The crew were Greek and I liked them very much. Other than that, though, nothing good stood out."
Cons: "There was a riot in Athens that day that delayed us 2 hours. I arrived in Athens WAY later than expected WITHOUT my baggage. It was still in Toronto and never moved once they made me late for my Munich flight. I did not have my baggage for several days following that and it made my trip difficult."
Cons: "At least snacks could have been given..."
Cons: "I had a window seat which had the new dimming glass rather than the pull-down shade. I kept the window at the darkest setting, and, even so, the window was so hot you could not hold your hand on it for more than a few seconds without it burning. The heat radiated so far out from the window that I needed to keep the air vent open totolerate it. Usually, when one sits in a window seat, they have the luxury of leaning against it with their pillow as they rest. The heat made this very uncomfortable, and for me, impossible. In fact, at a certain point, a stewardess came to the row ahead of me and excused herself with those passengers saying that she wanted to check the window of that row as the person sitting there was wondering is there was a malfunction in the window because it was burning hot. I spoke up and told the stewardess that the window was unbearably hot and to try to hold her hand on it. She responded, "Wow! That really IS the hot!" She said she'd check up front. She came back saying the pilot said it was because we are on the side of the plane facing the sun. We were on that side for 8 hours!! I find it hard to believe these windows weren't researched more thoroughly under all conditions, including the continual beating of the particular seasonal angle of the sun for long overseas flights! Please take this response seriously, as it truly was incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "I'm done flying with this company. Only reason I did was because I had a $100 gift card from the last time I flew with them and it was delayed 4 hours. Couldn't even use the gift card to pay for my luggage because they didn't have a proper machine to accept the gift card."
Pros: "Love these guys. Moved a whiny baby away to a another row ;)"
Pros: "Free beer, one flight attendant"
Cons: "Crew was rude and didn't care much"
Cons: "We were very unhappy that the flight was delayed by 35 minutes in Munich causing us to miss our connecting flight by 15 minutes… We only had an hour to get through customs and get to our next flight that should've been accounted for by kayak"
Cons: "The plane left over an hour late, despite the fact that the plane was at the gate hours before departure. This caused us to miss our connection to St. Louis. While they rerouted others on the flight, they did not reroute us because we didn't check any luggage! Their reasoning was we had a chance to make the connection. But they made us wait in a line for 10 minutes to be told that despite our requests to go to the gate. By then it was too late. We then had to fly stand by to Chicago and stand by again to get to St. Louis."
Pros: "The van that waited to quickly take us to customs and then to the gate to escort us to our connecting flight (which had been held for us) was incredibly welcome and helpful. I am grateful for that consideration and effort made on our behalf. The flight staff was excellent. Everything seemed to go very smoothly. I really liked the built in screens (& headphones) and entertainment programming made available to us."
Cons: "The food was tasty, but portions were a bit small, particularly in the main meal."
Pros: "I liked, that the staff was nice and friendly, I got my gluten-free food and there was enough entertainment (movies, movies, ...) to choose from, which made it a pleasant flight. Unfortunately, our flight from Munich to Toronto had a delay, so I couldn't make it to the connecting flight. Without having to ask or complain, Air Canada booked us on the next possible flight, which was the next morning, and gave us the boarding passes and a voucher for a Sheradon hotel close to Toronto airport, where I went by a free Sheradon Shuttle bus."
Cons: "I would have liked to be informed more than two times in 30minutes at the boarding area, about what was going on with the plane having to start later. It's not the waiting that is the bad thing in my eyes, it's the not knowing what is going on, also for passengers arriving after the first announcement. I could imagine people being a little more understanding, if they know what is going on, as well as your staff being less busy to answer questions, but instead being able to solve part of the problem."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Having to pay to have a bit of extra comfor while traveling with a 14 months old"
Pros: "The privacy of the person was honored"
Cons: "Having to stop. We were not told our luggage would not have to be transported through customs"
Pros: "Service was good and people were nice."
Cons: "Almost no room if someone puts their seat back, food was not good, made an emergency landing when passenger said he was fine and caused everyone to be delayed."
Pros: "About as good as a modern sold-out flight can get."
Cons: "Lufthansa crew was abrupt and demanding."
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seats were so close to together that whenever the person behind me moved, I got hit in the back. Anything that was dropped on the floor was hard to get since they were so close together which also made it hard to get in and out of the seats. The main meal was fine, but the second meal was mediocre."
Pros: "New plane with comfortable seats, good food, and decent entertainment selection"
Cons: "Not enough food for passengers on board. Flight attendants were visibly upset, rude, unable to handle the passenger load, uncommunicative when problems arose."
Pros: "The boarding staff and flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so small it was impossible to get the seatbelt without disturbing the people on either side. I am not a large person and I still filled the entire seat. The food was not good either. They served what was supposed to be a warm chicken wrap but after two bites I set it aside as mystery food."
Pros: "The planes were as expected, nothing special.."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, then delayed further with no explanation. No one knew if our connecting flight had left yet, no help in Toronto's confusing airport. TSA was more helpful than the Air Canada staff. Seemed like everyone had gone home for the night"
Pros: "Very accommodating and friendly staff. Very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "The selection of entertainment onboard to pass the time (eg movies, TV shows, etc..). It could of been better."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. We got here safely. That's good."
Cons: "1 bathroom for long flight. Ridiculous. Very tight and uncomfortable seats. No pillows, blankets, food and drink service only 1 time in long flight and all food is purchased. Basically, an exercise in human torture for 5+ hours. Should not be permissible to treat people this way."
Pros: "Overall, it was a smooth flight and the staff was helpful throughout this long flight."
Cons: "My flight from Munich to Toronto did not have the ability to recharge technology in my seat. It was a 9 hour flight, and this would have been helpful. The flight data would not display in my seat. This would have been nice to have the ability to track our progress. It was displayed i some of the monitors, however not all of them."
Pros: "The gate agent was in a really good mood, and I made her laugh, so she bumped me into business class. The flight crew was awesome."
Cons: "Old, sad, smelly, loud, poor upholstery, seat structure so old and so stressed the guy in front of me was almost in my lap."
Pros: "Seat was broken, you can not recline seat. Flight was full, I was told so you have to sit on same seat. Secondly, there was one kid who keep crying yelling like hell, big time headache. It was about 6 early morning flight came at airport by 3:00am thought will sleep on air. On boarding, only drinks was offered, not even cookies or snacks there."
Cons: "Broken Seat No cookies or nuts, only drinks For kids or infants- airline should give them last seats or offers Air buds."
Pros: "Air Canada did put us up in a hotel for the night when they cancelled our flight."
Cons: "The airport was so crowded that we couldn't get a flight out of Munich to anywhere else."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Everyone on the plane was very helpful and polite. There was a lot of room in between seats. The bathrooms were very neat and clean. I ordered a healthy meal (of which I never have done this before) and it was very tasty. That was a nice option, to have something light and healthy. My husband had the regular option and also commented on how it was very good (for airplane food). Only thing he didn't like was the light lunch that was a heated up wrap. At that point, we were almost home and it didn't matter. Nice flight! We will be back!"
Pros: "Larger seats than Alaska Airlines, which is what I typically fly."
Cons: "They would have gotten a better rating if my luggage would have shown up. Instead, I was told to wait in a "holding pen" for my luggage to show up so I could clear customs. After waiting for 30 minutes, I went to the Air Canada desk and was immediately told my luggage was not in Toronto. They were easily able to verify it but didn't figure it was important enough to tell me although for most of the time, I was the only one waiting in the room. My luggage did arrive two days after I did."
Pros: "Love the free coffee dispenser in the aiport! Staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Left a few min late"
Pros: "I usually fly United via Newark, but this entirely made me rethink my strategy! Great service, food, luggage delivered on time, even the pain of going through CA immigration was avoided by a smart detour of transit passengers."
Cons: "Very long lines for US security, rude US personnel."
Cons: "I am a visitor to Canada n travelling by myself, I do not carry cell phone and had no way to communicate these last minute changes to people coming to pick me up. Flight was overbooked n they bumped me off to a later flight. Then the airline lost my luggage and I was sent pillar to post to report it."
Pros: "Leg room was sufficient"
Cons: "Touchscreen monitors were not the best."
Pros: "fast boarding process. checked in bags for free due to full flight. Crew were very helpful and serviced with a smile throughout the journey. Baggage was on time on all the airports. On flight entertainment was very good. leg room good in all the flights."
Cons: "Seats should be more comfortable for such a long journey. economy class seats has very less support especially for the 11 hour flight."
Cons: "There was supposed to be wheelchair assistance at Richmond upon our arrival. Waited as long as I could. When no one came with a chair or any assistance, I had to walk ! struggling! so as not to fall to the baggage claim area, claim my luggage without any help, and then to my get myself and my luggage outside to meet ground transportation."
Cons: "The staff at the United gate in Munich was rude and not helpful at all."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service."
Cons: "Food was terrible - extremely small portions and tasteless."
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian selection of food could have been better."
Pros: "Polaris seating is very roomy and comfortable"
Cons: "No jet bridge for our flight. We had to be bused way across the airport and climb stairs to board, which made the whole boarding order meaningless. Surely this flight deserves a jet bridge from the actual terminal gate. Also, our bags did not come out in Houston and a United person told us there were no more coming, so we cleared customs and went to our next flight. This caused us to wait 1 hour in San Antonio for our bags to show up on the next Houston flight!"
Pros: "Made a 50 minute connection (from Milano) flawlessly. We were going to SFO and the LAX connection was even closer, but United/Lufthansa helped those passengers with expedited transport. Impressive. In contrast, we missed a SFO-Frankfurt-Nairobi connection a few months ago due to VERY sloppily organized security clearance there (and no help from Lufthansa). Moral: Don't try for transfer times less than 2+ hours in Frankfurt when coming from the States no matter what United/Lufthansa says!"
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment, unhealthy food and very bad space"
Pros: "The comfort on board for economy class was great, I didn’t feel like a sardine in a tin can. The configuration of the Boeing 787 was also excellent. The crew was as well also great. Overall we were quite surprised."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On this particular flight for some reason the crew served food before drinks."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Comfortable as well. Courteous and attentive crew."
Cons: "The food was awful if you didn't like curry or cheese (my husband and son didn't eat and it was a 9 hour flight). The landing was aborted after the wheels were on the ground. We came down way too fast and hard, and had to take off again and ascend very quickly. Circled an additional 25 mins before landing again."
Pros: "New flight reservation took us directly from Newark to Phoenix."
Cons: "This flight was totally cancelled. New reservation took us to Newark. Here the crowds were very long, baggage took over 20 min. to arrive, missed our connecting flight and had to wait 4 more hours for next flight. The flight out of Newark was held on the tarmac for 40 min."
Pros: "Crew were fabulous with my children, 2 and 5 years old."
Cons: "Not enough room on jetway to collapse and open stroller. My kids almost got trampled as I was doing this even though they stood still against the wall!"
Cons: "Wait time for US specific security check Line was too long and slow"
Pros: "The food and the attention of the crew was excellent I saw three movies in this long trip"
Cons: "I am not happy with the service of the Counter in Munich. I had my seats reserved in march when I bought the tickets and the employee without my autorization, changed my seats and my wife and me traveled separed. The position in my seat 2D was terrible. Everybody walk in the aisle and touch me several times. It is better to travel to Europe in European Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! thank you!"
Cons: "The screens are outdated and don't respond properly to touch, old movies, old games, no live-news (available at other airlines - e.g. LH)."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Cons: "worst food ever internationally. And I've been to 43 countries. crackers as snack, only one meal on an 11 hr flight, ran out of fizzy water, for sandwich, I had to take off one layer of bread to taste the meat at all (thinest layer ever seen with only two dots of a pesto."
Pros: "Food was really good and I watched some great movies. I was happy to see that there is much more room on Int'l flights than domestic flights. The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I was pulled out of line when trying to board at the gate for not having a 'stamp' on my boarding pass which would tell them I went through security (even though I had gone through three levels of security!) I was sent back to a gate that had no idea what I was talking about and I became frantic, as my son was about to board a flight that I could not. I finally found what was needed (after being sent through the line and patted down this time!) and I ran back to the gate to be the last person on the plane. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Also my son's video touch screen was not working properly. I realize that it is hard to keep these operating well, with all the use they get, but it was annoying as this happened on the flight over as well."
Cons: "We waited in line to check baggage because it was Lufthansa and got to the front before finding out it was a united flight. No where did it say United check in. Just aggravating."
Cons: "However flight from Athens to Munich sucked. Charged for carry on at check in , even thou others before boarding were checked there’s for free since flight was full. If that was the case I should of gotten mine free. Wish United would drop Lufthansa airlines."
Pros: "I am muslim, but I forgot to arrange the kind of food I would prefer during the flight, and the gentlement I talked to said let me see what I could do to help you about it, and few minutes later came up with muslim meal. I was really happy! Thank you all again."
Pros: "The final sandwich was great."
Cons: "The movies were outdated mostly"
Pros: "Staff were respectful Plane was warm enough Left on time Extended leg room seats were actually comfortable Not next to toilets"
Cons: "Food was somewhat disappointing. Ordered a gluten free meal which somehow turned into a vegetarian meal - that was disappointing."
Cons: "The plane has business section seats that face both ways...some face the front of the plane as most seats do and some face the back of the plane which seems new. I had asked when I booked the flight and again when I checked in what direction out seats faced and was assured the seats faced forward. They do not. Out seats in row 9 faced the backend of the plane and were awful."
Pros: "Flight staff was good!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, it was re-booked, but lots of walking and waiting especially for a older person. Chicago busy , more walking, home much later,.. still waiting for one suitcase."
Cons: "Boarding in Munich -- our flight came in 1/2 hour late into Munich. Although I believe that security questions/answers may be necessary in foreign countries, I believe that 5-6 minutes of questioning when a flight is already boarding is a bit much."
Pros: "Nothing I like on that flight. Food was ok but cared little for when you make unscheduled stops due to pilot not following us regulations. Get stranded in DC over night no compensation for hotel just a horrible experience !"
Cons: "Everything that went on on that flight ... Except the food being ok Stewardesses tried their best."
Cons: "Terrible position of the seat. In between bathrooms and crying kids when I had requested the exact opposite. Food was awful. I had a vegetarian meal."
Cons: "US Customs!!!! Inefficient and long!!"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours on the tarmac with no food/water due to a mechanical issue that should have been checked and cleared before they boarded the flight. Also flying economy was awful. Hardly any room in the seats."
Cons: "She was not able to fly to Germany even though we paid for the ticket"
Pros: "We were very pleased with the service and comfort. Special recognition for our flight attendant, Robin. She was wonderful."
Cons: "It would have been great to have a USB port at the seat as in other international airlines."
Cons: "Munich - Houston overnight flight. No breakfast. No good."
Pros: "Very efficient personnel. Clean plane, nice big bathroom."
Cons: "I politely asked the attendant if they might have coconut or almond milk and felt like I was laughed at."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options. Attentive crew. Food and beverage selections were great."
Cons: "the side dish for dinner was some oat/grain something that wasn't very tasty."
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork."
Cons: "Entertainment did not work."
Pros: "Crew members were actually quite rude at times."
Pros: "It was acceptable. The seats were quite small but that's what you get these days. The flight crew did their best. We arrived safely and my bags made it."
Cons: "Food, seat comfort."
Pros: "The food really was tasty"
Pros: "Check-in in Munich was friendly, professional, efficient. Pleasant flight. On time."
Cons: "Condescending flight attendant There should be an announcement for people to close their shades at cruising altitude. Bright sunlight hitting your peripheral vision is very stressful."
Pros: "punctuality, crew service"
Cons: "everything was Ok, average intercontinental flight"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were to small as I was stuck in the middle of 2 other people."
Cons: "Very confusing on checking in. I spent 30 min calling Lufthansa trying to check-in ahead of time only to find out that I was actually flying United. Confirmation email did not make state that I was to check in with United Airlines. Also the confirmation number I received did not apply to United."
Pros: "Staff was very nice. Clean cabin."
Cons: "Very difficult to make selection on the video tv systems. The breakfast was just a microwaved sandwich with weird cheese and 1 thin slice of processed turkey, that's it?"
