I liked that once up, things ran more smoothly and we still landed on time despite a 45+ minute delay leaving the gate. The boarding process was another story. With the demand for proof of a negative COVID test prior to boarding by the US, Air France had just 2 staff members checking these tests results, collecting a paper affidavit of sorts also required by the US, and checking boarding passes and passports for an entire Boeing 777 full of passengers. There were other staff around This seemed preposterous. Then, when I finally boarded, the luggage was still be loaded onto the plane at 1:50pm for a flight schedule to leave at 1:15pm.
Cons: "movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Cons: "Again, make sure to note conspicuously that luggage price is not included."
Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth take-off and landing, and gluten-free meal available (ordered before through Delta.com). Alcohol was available at each drink service."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks, lack of gluten-free awareness by crew, and gluten-free meal had an apple instead of the (gluten-free) ice cream bar the other meals included for the dessert."
Pros: "Happy to be home"
Cons: "Allow more time for check in"
Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."
Cons: "Tight seating. Cold. Arm rests hurt my arms. Foot rest would have been a blessing. Blanket was too thin."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"
Pros: "The care and good food was much appreciated. There were plenty of excellent movies to watch to make the time pass in an enjoyable way."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were medium on the comfort range."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and more leg room!"
Cons: "Lost my both bags in transit. Also, did not get wheelchair services at Paris and had to walk everywhere with bad legs. Not good."
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "I had the chicken beans and rice which was good, the chicken burrito was a little soggy and had to peal it out of the box but taste ok."
Cons: "The choice of the movies were either action or kids movies, i would like to see some sports movies, auto race, football or espn. All of the was energetic with great smiles and service except for one that never smiled and lacked enthusiasm. I wondered why she was on the plane."
Pros: "In rescheduling us they only charged us $54 per person"
Cons: "Reminder came 20 min beforehand and because I didn’t pre check in we missed the flight even though the plane had not even arrived.... terrible experience in Paris and impacted our life in a large way.... not a good experience using kayak"
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Could not get the delta Wi-Fi to work. Also my seat nearphone jack was broken."
Cons: "plane was a bit old. tiny tv screen"
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Direct flight from CDG to IND."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience. The crew were very friendly and professional. Their entertainment system and movies etc on-board was very good. Food was great too"
Cons: "Nothing really. A bit more leg room perhaps. It seems delay flights have the shortest leg room when compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Staff and equipment"
Cons: "Early to arrive but gate not ready so we lost our edge"
Pros: "There was a lot of food for this international flight. The seats were fine, just an overbooked plane."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Seats and service."
Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "We were waiting until the airport assigned us a parking slot. Instead of leaving the entertainment system on, they turned it off. We basically spent 1.5h without entertainment system."
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Cons: "No opportunity for seat selection. Seat didn't recline, no blankets available so whatever part I couldn't cover with my jacket was cold from floor up (so no ability to control source), so no sleep, bordering on hypothermia. Seatmate was huge and continuously overflowing into my space (even though he suffered more than i did). Will endeavor NEVER to fly any flight involving Delta again."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Cons: "The 1st flight that I have not been cold for the entire flight. The attendants were very good and professional and kind. The Movie selection I felt did not have enough variety. The movies all seemed to be rated R or they were child type movies. Nothing much in between."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t over booked or full"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. The entertainment was not working."
Cons: "I purchased 3 tickets and one was not used as the guest could not make the trip. The airline sold the seat that I already bought and paid full price for and I was not issued a refund or a credit for another flight. As fas as I see it, that seat was mine and shoould not have been fiilled by another indiviidual."
Pros: "Super nice crew, 787 plane, entertainment"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Very little legroom"
Pros: "Plane was good, no delays and passport control in Charlotte, NC was quick."
Cons: "I can’t believe we had to board this international flight by riding a bus to the plane and climbing the stairs into the plane."
Cons: "British Airways flight was carried by American Airlines. Planes were late, boarded one plane from the tarmac with no explanation, gate was changed 5 times without announcements. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were helpful, some were not. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The Food was not fully warmed, seats were uncomfortable. The boarding process did not seem organized."
Pros: "A couple crew members were great and attentive. A couple seemed like they would’ve rather been anywhere else."
Cons: "This plane is so outdated. For such a long flight, these days entertainment is everything. The movies got interrupted every time an announcement was made (as in the screens went black and never came back on only the sound) this happened to 3 movies! The “wifi” completely useless."
Pros: "Food was ok and flight was early."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and had to take a bus in frigid temps. Plane was from the 80s not entertainment unit and everything feeling old and rickety"
Pros: "Great food, on time, smooth service"
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours late."
Pros: "Easy check in, helpful staff. Great seats and lovely in-flight amenities. Most of the food was really good and quite a bit was offered during the flight. Arrived early and staff was really helpful in getting through customs."
Cons: "Weight limit on baggage was very strict. Boarding took a long time and seemed disorganized."
Pros: "Front area had nice amount of leg room. Back was so tight i couldnt even reach my bag under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "$20 for wifi is a rip off!! Delta includes free wifi on international flights. Some prople need to work and paying for internet on an 8.5 hour trip was ridiculous. Food options were not that great either. Pasta was supposed to be vegetable pasta but no veggies to be found. Not healthy options."
Pros: "Boarding, crew, frequent refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was virtually non-existent"
Pros: "Comfort on board, entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane than on the way to Paris, did not like so much the food (except main course)"
Pros: "Great Service, Plane, Food, and Entertainment. Delayed 1 1/2 hours, but we were kept informed. Premium Economy seats are very comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Got selected for additional screening...not your fault, but would have preferred to Not be screened in the jetway as other pax boarded in same jetway behind us."
Pros: "The flight attendants, the service,, the movies, the food, the flight were great, the pilot was very smooth, the plane was very clean"
Cons: "The boarding took forever, including because my wife was picked for extra security search... for an american citizen who lives in miami ?... Inside the plane during the whole flight was freezing Paying for suitcases and changing or selecting seats??? .. really?"
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Very long flight"
Pros: "The movie/tv system did not work despite a lot of time trying. Very disappointing when taking a long flight with a 10 year old."
Pros: "Amenities were about on par with other international airlines. The entertainment console was wonderful. The trip was more quickly than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. We were there 2.5 hours before our flight and had to rush to make it on time due to the awful lines for the checking our bags and general disorganization of American Airlines. The staff on the plane missed our row when offering drinks near the end of the flight and were not careful about bumping elbows and shoulders as they frequented the aisle. Also couldn't sit by my family which was a huge bummer."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "It was 1:45 late . It was American Airline, we had extra passenger on board. It took them long time to figure it out. I was so rush, I barely made the connectiog flight and I only had carry on luggage."
Cons: "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "There are no blue US custom declaration forms on the flight anymore. Many people cannot access the automatic kiosks, and I wish we could still have access to the forms while on the plane. It is stressful to have to do it after landing, with no real place to write. The flights were both fine, but the layover in DFW was a nightmare. Thankfully we landed 30 min early, but we only made our connection with a few minutes the spare. We ran through the airport, and had to ask many people if we could go ahead of them at the security. We didn't have time to use the bathroom and buy water/food. I understand this is not the airline's fault, but I would recommend extending the minimum connection time at this airport."
Pros: "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Cons: "There were two adults and their child next to me in two seats the child was big enough that it should have its own seat so for nine plus hours I had a child kicking me. Make people pay for a seat for their kid."
Pros: "Nice people at the counter in Paris!"
Cons: "How They managed the cancellation!!!very poor! Send to Miami!!!very desagreable people at the counter there! No one flight was in time going to Europe!!! I arrived a day later !missed my train connection to Strasbourg.!!!! Coming back could not confirm my flight because the page did not allowed me to do so.....my place was all ready given!!"
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Pros: "A crazy day at the airport with TWO unattended baggage threats that created a back log at security. Efficiently boarded the plane and took off on time, arriving early."
Cons: "Taking a bus to the plane, being forced to wait on the bus in hot conditions to board, having to climb stairs to access plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Pros: "This was a sold out flight, however, the flight crew remained professional, friendly and efficient, and we departed and arrived on schedule. The seating was the same as every other airline - not roomy enough. On the bright side, I've had more than a few meals on international flights with six or more other airlines and this was the best meal service so far. Dinner was very tasty!"
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Cons: "Poor choice and food"
Cons: "No screens"
Pros: "New entertainment system"
Pros: "At least they kept throwing food at us on the plane."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours early to CDG, and a long line to check a bag. It took so long, eventually they allowed people to cut in line as their flight departure times neared. 2+ hours later, I finally got to a kiosk to print my boarding pass and baggage tag, but now another line to drop off my bag on the conveyor belt. With less than 30 minutes to departure, and still haven't gone through security, I gave up and made my checked bag a carry-on as well. And then tight seats on the plane, with no individual screens (the movie played on a tiny screen 2 rows up in the aisle.)"
Pros: "No major issues with the flight itself, see below for MAJOR issues with check-in and checking bags."
Cons: "The organization with American Airlines at Charles de Gaulle was absolutely pathetic. I understand it's a busy airport, but NONE of the other airlines had lines like American did. Then by the time you get up to an American airline employee, incompetence was written all over their faces. The straw that broke the camel's back was that they insisted on separating my partner and me while doing security questions, meanwhile other parties who were together were not separated (LGBT discrimination). This pushed us back 10 minutes--we were separated and he was having to wait for me after the questioning to get my bag checked, too. I'll add that we arrived to the airport with over 2 hours to spare before our flight which should have been more than enough time. We probably would have missed the flight if not for a few decent Charles de Gaulle employees who bumped us though lines at customs when they realized the time crunch, no thanks to anyone with American Airlines. I heard so many saying they will not use American Airlines again, and how saving a few dollars was not worth the headache. Flying is already stressful enough, don't make it that much worse."
Cons: "The staff was rude not helpful and mean worst crew I've ever seen and I fly alot"
Pros: "The flight staff was great"
Cons: "I felt like I was sitting in low class by selecting economy. The plane was old with only one in flight entertainment option. There was a baby sitting behind me in a parents lap kicking my seat the entire time. Less leg room and space then the last time I flew AA. The food option was mediocre."
Cons: "Very poor boarding. Crew late but did not start screening and checking passengers until late. Had to ride bus to plane and walk a short distance in the rain which was moderately heavy."
Pros: "Each person having their own screen for movies and Tv is great! Food good/ too much but spaced apart very well...overall excellent service"
Cons: "Being pulled aside prior to boarding because we did I not have a sticker on our passports... otherwise boarding was excellent!"
Pros: "Great crew and amount of food. Loved the ice cream and little pizza snack - extremely good!"
Cons: "Flight really delayed which didn't make a whole lot of sense since it was the first flight that day"
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Normally wouldn't be an issue, but it would have been nice to be more comfortable on a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew were quite good. Food was fine for airplane fare with excellent ice cream mid-flight. Airplane was spotless. Entertainment was very good. Plenty of carry-on storage on this 787-9. Customs and airport (DFW) experience was very good. Baggage claim and return for connection were prompt and rapid."
Cons: "Seats were tight in basic coach. As typical at CDG airport (other than the government subsidized Air France facilities), check-in and security is a nightmare. Clearly the worst airport in the world."
Pros: "Great service by flight crew"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "I liked that the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "I didn't like that the departure time was delayed because it caused be to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Pros: "I really appreciated the drink cart coming through several times. The air is so dry on a plane, it's nice to stay hydrated."
Cons: "One older flight attendant was rude to the younger for no good reason. She was abrasive throughout the flight. The rest of the flight attendants were great."
Pros: "The in flight movie options were great, and the food and beverages were good."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "It was an older airplane. For a long flight from Montreal to San Francisco, a plane with more room would be more humane. People were lined up for the bathrooms most of the trip since could not use the small first class bathroom. If one wanted a meal, it was one you had to pay for. Broken monitor"
Pros: "Food was excellent, seating was comfortable and entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized. It seemed to have been a little chaotic."
Pros: "Crew, seat, entertainment were okay..."
Cons: "The check in at CDG (Paris) was a disaster. There were 4 or 5 different flights checking-in at the same time so people were standing in line for hours... United did not have enough personnel to properly handle their customers. I suggest they make self check-in stations available for customers."
Pros: "Excelente atención, salida y llegada a tiempo y buenas opciones de comidas y servicios"
Cons: "Todo estuvo bien"
Cons: "Boarding at CDG in Paris was chaotic. Called group 1 and 2 to line up but boarding didn’t start for approx 45 minutes."
Pros: "Well trained employees, courteous service"
Cons: "Space in seating very limited, and some seats in business class empty and also some seats with more room."
Pros: "On time good leg room"
Pros: "The flight went okay. Boarding was very good."
Cons: "We were delayed because the air conditioning was having problems. This was the fifth flight out of seven that had some kind of delay."
Pros: "All other stuff good"
Cons: "No music options for entertainment"
Pros: "I had THE WORST experience with ONE flight attendant leaving Paris CDG, flying to Chicago O’Hare. Flight #9334. On 7/26 @ 11:22am. I am hypoglycemic and the flight attendant skipped my line for food I acknowledged her three times and she ignored me so on the fourth time I raised my voice saying “excuse me ma’am” that seem to have irritated her or rubbed her the wrong way because her response was extremely unprofessional yelling at me and accused me of startling her. She compared my voice to the startle of 911 and caused a scene in front of the majority of the passengers. All I wanted was the food that was available for each passenger because she skipped My row. After talking to another flight attendant who claim to be a manager name Celeste who was wearing a visible name tag along with every other flight attendant except for her, I asked her for the name so I could write up a review she refused to give me her name saying it was against their policy to give up first names even though it’s clearly on everybody’s shirt except hers she removed it or covered it up w/ her apron even though Robert Robert was wearing an apron with his name tag outside of his apron like he should the attendant that gave me problems took off her name tag and covered it with an apron that was a violation of dress code. A simple apology is all I asked for but she refused to apologize and the managers only response was “I can’t make her apologize” Never in my life have I been treated with such disrespect on a flight as I am a frequent flyer to Paris on United everybody else and all other flights was extremely helpful and courteous. This woman started ranting and raving about 911 and getting people nervous for no reason. I will be writing a formal letter to the corporate office. I just barely got home and wanted to write this review because it ruined my experience in 9 1/2 hour flight experience. It was also very embarrassing for me and my family, as other customers were bothered by this and had to listen to this. I was trying to speak over the air conditioner and after the third time of her not acknowledging me that is one I raise my voice politely by saying “excuse me ma’am”. I am a frequent united flier. Furthermore I have scoliosis and I’m handicapped our flight got delayed by 3 furthermore I have scoliosis and I’m handicapped our flight got delayed by 2 1/2 hrs. By this time my back was throbbing and when I talked to the gentleman upfront he told me to write a letter for some type of compensation regarding everything I have been through. Here are pictures of the lady who is out of dress code the flight attendant and also out of line dealing with plus dealing with customers she’s obviously unhappy with her job and should not be in the customer service industry as I know for being a businesswoman myself owning my own salon I deal with customers all day and I know my number one job is to make sure my customers are happy I am not ."

Cons: "It's a United crew. They're careless and rude."
Pros: "Boarding went very smoothly. Flight attendants were good. I was glad that water was offered several times during the flight."
Pros: "Quite all"
Cons: "My tablet wasn't working ...."
Pros: "Quick early flight. Good entertainment system. Quick luggage pickup. Announcements in English and French. We could reserve seats for free"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic."
Cons: "Small seats on aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was very comfy"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "We were sitting right next to the crew resting area and it was very restricting to us. I had two little kids that I had to keep quiet for about 6 hours out of 8. Even when my kids were quiet, we were reminded twice to keep quiet. It was very restricting and I was forced to walk back and forth with my two year old to keep her quiet so the crew can rest. Why is the crew resting when they are supposed to be working on that flight? The meal quality sucked, I did not finish it, let alone my kids. My kids were prettu much hungry for 8 hrs. Not a very family friendly flight."
Cons: "Horrible communicatuon between the crew and passengers. Poor entertainment and comfort. The delay in Chicago was poorly updated and once the plane landed the flight taxied for upwards of a half hour."
Pros: "arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "nothing really. Just a standard, OK, United flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, - smiled and nice from beginning to end. The flight was fast and smooth. The seats were also decent and the width of the aisles had just enough room to wheel my bag and also not get hit when the carts came through. They are still too narrow, but better than some planes. I appreciated the good coffee, too (illy)."
Cons: "The food was inedible! This was the worst food I have ever had on a flight, seriously. The omeletes had the consistency of rubber, and my special meal (Asian vegetarian) was some fried thing that I couldn't eat at all and my companion - who will usually eat anything, would not touch it. I asked the attendant for an omelet instead (before I knew they were just as bad) and explained to her that the I can't eat fried food. She said she was surprised since Asian vegetarian is usually Indian - or at least discernibly Asian and so, would have been OK for a gluten-free vegetarian diet such as mine."
Pros: "The return flight served a small whole grain tasty sandwich for breakfast on the return flight. That was good."
Cons: "I was delighted to spend the extra money to have the Lufthansa experience, riding on an airline considered in the top ten airlines out of 100, as opposed to United's ranking of 68, down from 60 the year before. I was extremely surprised to find that I, indeed, was scheduled for United. The double trip code was VERY inconvenient, found myself constantly having to call the other airline to book the seat, find the gate, find out about luggage limitations, etc. Not intuitive in any manner. Please don't confuse customers with your 7 point tiny type saying we're just kidding, you'll really be on an airline of our choice when the day comes!!! but you'll pay the bigger bucks!!! UGH."
Pros: "Excellent meal in and very crew."
Pros: "The leg room on plane was great."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. They did not have enough room to line up people for organized groups. People were cutting in line, walking up in front, where as people had been in line for half an hour. they need more clarity and staff to help with this."
Pros: "On time. Tasty eats. Good crew"
Cons: "Sound in the movies is sub-par"
Cons: "Food and service"
Cons: "United inflight entertainment needs a massive upgrade - to say the least."
Cons: "Very rough landing."
Pros: "It was my first international flights, and both going there and coming back went amazingly well. Everything was exceptional."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and our delay today was linked to our wait for the plane to be de-iced. Food service however is too long as they split the food first then drinks then desserts which really makes the whole service in three steps much longer and that's not counting the fourth time they come to pick up thrash. Crew however was pleasant."
Cons: "A mechanical issue delayed our return by over an hour. I guess they didn't know the extent or the time needed to repair, so we boarded at the regular time and sat in the plane. Good cabin crews both ways. Food meh. The 787 over was much better than the aging 767 coming back. I like the new app based entertainment system."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The food could have been a little better, but I know it's a hit and miss thing."
Pros: "flights were on time with early arrivals."
Pros: "Virtually empty flight"
Cons: "Fly was late. Luggage delivery was slow."
Pros: "Crew did a nice job, food was average."
Cons: "Not UAL's fault, but airports are a hassle, little space for carry on since the big charges for checking luggage, etc. I now fly as seldom as possible."
Pros: "Boarding I guess was good. Flight was on time and arrived early in San Francisco."
Cons: "This was not a Luftansa flight, it was United. The crew was okay, but were not very good with putting any effort in for the passengers. The entertainment systems were clunky, slow and unresponsive. They looked old and/or just poorly designed or implemented. Could have just been cheap? Mine froze during the flight and never worked after that. The food was some of the worst I've ever had on a flight. Don't choose the vegetarian option unless you want an upset stomach. Seats were cramped and uncomfortable, but at least we got a clean blanket. They kept the plane cold for some unknown reason, so we needed it."
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day, and agent said it was available. I had to call them to find out not only was the flight no longer available, but there were none in the same time frame I needed and the next option would cost $1500+. I lost over $575 for a flight I couldn't even take. DO NOT BOOK ON KAYAK!"
Cons: "Touch screen on the outgoing flight was awful...the right half didn't work so pretty much no selections could be made. The return flight screen functioned ok. Also, no USB charge port on either flight!"
Pros: "Attendant kept re-filling our wine glasses! Very friendly!"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be nice."
Cons: "my light does not focus on my area, but on neighbor's area."
Pros: "The purchasing experience was great."
Cons: "Had to pay for the 2nd bag for an international flight. Didn't expect it."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Service needs to be radically improved."
Pros: "I got a seat that had extended leg room so that was good."
Cons: "The plane was relatively old and therefore the entertainment system was very poor. The screen quality was bad and could hardly see the movies. The touch screen did not work well and the screen kept falling down (I had one that came out of the arm of the seat). I noticed those around me had the same issues with their entertainment systems. The service on the plane was just adequate with the staff fairly efficient but not very outgoing or positive. I recently flew LOT and Lufthansa internationally in coach (economy plus) and they provided better meals, towels for washing, more and frequent drink runs and better snacks. Overall, just a mediocre flight -- not terrible, but not good."
Pros: "Once I was on the flight it was fine except for the food which was decent"
Cons: "On my outbound flight from IAD to BRU my flight was delayed 3.5 hours because the "plane was late to arrive". Seems like this happens a lot on United flights. The staff at the gate of Dulles airport were extremely rude and difficult to deal with, which made it frustrating to try and figure out my connection situation. I missed my connection from Brussels to Paris and had to buy a train ticket for which I was not reimbursed by United. Then, on the way back from Paris, my flight was delayed 2.5 hours for the same reason. At least this time I had a direct flight. This entire experience makes me think twice about flying United again. I live in DC and it would be just as (in)convenient for me to go to BWI instead of Dulles for international flights, where there seems to be more options outside of flying United."
