Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur.

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."

Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."

Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."

Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."

Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."

Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."

Pros: "The service was very professional."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"

Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Cons: "We tried to check our bags through Charles DeGaulle onto our connecting Air Canada flight and the agent refused to even discuss it. Pretty bad service."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The seat was uncomfortable after such a long flight. But that is to be expected, I guess. The lady, kicking our seats behind us, because she felt it was disrespectful to recline your seat, even during a 9 hour flight, was the only drawback. But the crew responded approp"
Cons: "The best part about the food was the ice cream. The rest of the food was lackluster, but what I expected on a flight. The lady kicking our seats behind us because she thought it was disrespectful to recline made for an uncomfortable flight. The rest was as good as expected on American Airlines"

Cons: "The service and courtesy of the staff wasn’t great."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment and WiFi was great."
Cons: "The food could’ve been better"

Pros: "People on the planes were nice"
Cons: "The guy at the gate in france made me check my bag, he said it was due to the size but people were walking by with bigger bags and he didn't seem to care about them at all. Not sure why he singled me out. Also took my passport, which he wasn't doing for other passengers and told me to board the plane. I had to ask multiple times for him to return my passport. Not sure if it was his first day or something but it was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Great food, on time, smooth service"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "Modern equipment (787)"
Cons: "8 emails from Kayak and 1 from AA warning of flight delay. But gate agents did not know anything about this and boarded us on schedule. So we sat for 90 minutes until the new aircraft was 'repaired'. Failed by a mile to make the connection. And I suppose I should have paid first-class fare, as then I would have made by connection?"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Service, quality of food, availability of food choices"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, frequent refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was virtually non-existent"

Cons: "Additional cost for luggage"
Pros: "No negative surprises"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic, but not hideous."

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."
Cons: "Antiquated entertainment system. Lack of a/c power outlets at each seat."
Cons: "Flight departed 3 hours late due to mechanical issues. We just sat in the plane while they slowly, extremely slowly, dealt with the problem. Caused me to miss my connection in Dallas, and now I have to stay overnight. American cattle car class seats are hard, small, a sorry sign of affairs for US-based airlines. Coach class used to be reasonable, but it is now just embarrassing."
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Cons: "Poor choice and food"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, helpful, flight was on time, seats were comfortable, worked with me to sit next to my wife. The meal and one of the snacks was really good."

Cons: "Flight bought by American Airlines. Not the same quality as British airlines flight."
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: "Stsff was outstanding...love the compllimentary wine....like the old days.when service mattered most."
Cons: "Airline wait lines at terminals"
Cons: "Check in was total chaos. Food was horrible."
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"

Pros: "Good food, good wine, good movie choice, Thank you."
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: "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 food was pretty good."
Cons: "Old 777-200. not very comfortable and the entertainment is very sub-par"
Pros: "Very old American Airplane. Lost luggage (finally retrieved). Attendants were great."
Cons: "Monitors didn't work from our seats. small area in seating."

Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "The ticket I purposed did not allow for carry on / which was not clear on my confirmation when purchasing the ticket"
Pros: "Got the seats I wanted, movies were good. Staff was friendly"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive with me."
Pros: "On time and all fine. Excellent service and good food."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants ignored us. There was no legroom. There were no free snacks. It took forever to get our drinks."
Pros: "I really liked that the time changed to a more reasonable arrival time. Usually that flight gets in way passed 10 and it’s makes for a long day of travel. I appreciated arriving earlier and on time."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and courteous. It was comfortable for a 12 hour journey in a plane. What a difference from their regional staff and service."
Cons: "The food was of course something to be desired."
Cons: "Late to take off, thankfully I had booked my flights far enough apart as this also happened last year on the same trip/flight."
Pros: "It was roughly on time."
Cons: "There was no food, including snacks, that were complimentary, you had to pay for anything (even tiny pretzel packets) except water."
Cons: "My flights were so behind I missed my connection for Toronto to Tel Aviv and was rerouted to London and then Frankfurt but the plane was late getting there as well. Air canada had no crew on the ground and over and hour wait for customer service on the phone so i had no way to find out what my reticketing status was. I was passed off to numerous other airlines and sent through the airport to the incorrect terminals in heathrow causing another missed flight. Air canada did not accept the responsibility to maintain my reservation and get me to my destination efficiently. Even when I spoke with a phone representative the person was rude and never sent confirmation of my flights so I had no reference point for flight numbers or air lines. All of his added up to more than 13 hours of delays on what was already a 24 hour trip. Worst travel experience of my life."
Pros: "The plane was unable to board on time ,the cabin was too cold. That was a hitch well managed but with a seat near the rear of the aircraft only food option was cup of soup rehydrated with hot water or snacks. May be better food provision could be implemented."
Pros: "Friendly crew, direct flight to my destination, took extra time to de-ice properly...thank you."
Cons: "No pre check-in with Kayak...annoying! Extremely narrow seats, delay boarding because some people were allowed on before the wheelchair travelers and the aisle got clogged, snarky comments at check in.. “.too many seniors on this flight “ yes, it’s January and it’s going to Florida!"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, inflight entertainment was solid. Flight attendants were great all around."

Cons: "Flight was delayed My wife and I got separate seats Screen and audio on the entertainment system didn't work"

Cons: "Some of the crew were rude no food or drinks No entertainment of any sort for long trips"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I almost missed my connecting flight"

Cons: "All the rest Barbados gate agents are as bad as it gets Planes were dirty Food options Food shortages Etc..."
Cons: "The television screen with on-board entertainment options didn't work properly, so I was unable to watch movies/television or play games. This was disappointing as it was a fairly long flight."
Pros: "Great service, and no issues to report."
Pros: "flight was fast and on time, service was good"
Cons: "seat was in poor conditon , numb after 3 hours on a 8 hour flight no entertainment units mounted in plane."
Pros: "Decent movies."
Cons: "I separated from my 2 daughters and husband because they did not allow me to pick seats or check in online. I was stuck in the seat immediately in front of the stinky bathroom in a seat that didn't recline, had no hdmi charging port and was pretty much continuously crowded by bathroom-goers. In fact, so many bathroom goers grabbed the seat in front of me that they touched my movie screen about 7-8 times, causing the menu to pop up and interrupt the movie. Otherwise, the food was gross and one of the flight attendants was very grumpy."
Cons: "Half hr late"
Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"
Cons: "first flight scheduled april 20 at 12:05pm cancelled. second flight for 4:15pm to laguardia cancelled. excuses for cancellation were given but not to our satisfaction. as a result we missed a good portion of the wedding we attended in new jersey"
Pros: "The in-flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "We avoid Air Canada and after this flight that will continue. First, they wanted $400 for the return trip to guarantee that my wife and I sit together. To guarantee that we sit together and that it would be safe for her 28in femurs it would be $800. Then the Orlando leg of our trip was delayed by two hours, guaranteeing that we would miss our connecting flight. They would not make arrangements prior to departure, nor would they respond to any enquiries from any of the passengers about their connecting flight arrangements. On arrival in Toronto, as we pulled up to the gate, they announced that they had found alternate connections for all but 4 passengers that we would get more information outside. There was nobody at the gate. There was noone at customs. We did not know if we had a connecting flight, or if we had to pick-up our luggage. Nobody from Air Canada gave us any information. We asked security at baggage if we should go on to connecting flights or wait for luggage and were only informed that once we leave the baggage area we couldn't return. When we got to the terminal entrance for connecting flights, we were told (by security) that we could not enter without a new boarding pass. THEY directed us to the line for Air Canada (no indication if we were in the right line, but other people in the line were in the same situation. We finally got to the counter and were informed that we were on the last flight of the night and given boarding passes. Thank heavens that my credit card has priority pass membership. Delays happen. The way Air Canada handles it turned a minor annoyance into a maximum-stress situation. We already avoid Air Canada because they took away almost 50,000 travel miles for not flying for one year. We will work even harder to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "Very friendly & helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Crew was late and did not apologize. they were also rude during service"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Coming back, the drinks and the declaration cards came too late. We were landing when I got a Cole."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No leg room at all."
Pros: "Smooth flight and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "I as first time travel from US to Canada no information given on flight regarding how to get to connections and customs. Unaware of requirements to claim luggage after customs and before security We were surprised at the lack of any offer of snacks on a five hour flight"
Pros: "Smooth flying, great pilots, pleasant stewards."
Cons: "The food Santiago - Toronto good. Food Toronto - Santiago poor!"
Cons: "No leg room Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Choices of movies were nice . Food was good ."
Cons: "delay after delay after delay. And the boarding location is shameful."
Pros: "On time, nice crew, decent leg room"
Cons: "Nothing much to eat if you are vegan or vegetarian."
Pros: "Clear communication"
Cons: "45 minute delay"
Cons: "Flight attendant was awful My seat assignment was the same seat designated to crew and my flight attendant treated badly inspite of the error"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. It had apparently arrived late, and then they had mechanical problems. Air Canada gave me some inaccurate information which delayed me in Montreal and made me miss my connection to Toronto. Also, even though I specified to the flight attendant that I was connecting to Toronto before going to the US , they only gave me the US custom form even though you apparently need to fill the Canadian one even if you are just transiting through the country."
Pros: "Everything was great in the premium seats (first row)."
Cons: "The seats could use a foot rest to help passengers sleep better."
Pros: "Business class compartments. Excellent by all standards"
Pros: "I had not paid attention to know this was going to be such a tiny plane - 18 seats! Transborder flight, 1:20 hours, single seats so both window and aisle, two fantastic pilots (no flight attendants) who did everything, young, friendly and in charge, smooth trip, and I was in seat 2 and looking directly ahead seeing the pilots' view! I didn't need snacks or other entertainment. Will not hesitate to take this flight / Air Canada / small planes again."
Pros: "It was better fright than expected. We didn't enough time to enjoy Canada airport . We made a onetime fright but took long wait at customs."
Pros: "The crew was nice. That's about it."
Cons: "Flight left late. Customer service at ticketing were nasty and rude. Was charged 25 dollars to check a bag on a international flight. The layover in Toronto was a nightmare!! The whole process of customs, rechecking your bag, and Canadian security was way too long and cumbersome. On top of that my flight to the US ended up leaving 1.5 hrs late and most of the wait time no gate attendant was even there."
Cons: "After a sprint through the aiport, saw the flight was delayed an hour once at the counter. Meaning my connection in Copenhagen would most probably be missed. Entertainement system issues on flght. Luggage was left behing in Copenhagen"
Pros: "Great Customer Service"
Pros: "They had brand new film releases."
Cons: "I got bumped. Even though, I made my flight on time AND had chosen my seat over a month ago, air Canada decided to bump me from my international flight. I was able to get a seat but not the seat I would have chosen (I'm six foot, I can't sit by the window). Since it was so crowded, I couldn't stretch my legs or use the loo. Finally I PAID for the seat I was bumped from; no one can tell me when I'll get reimbursed."
Pros: "I liked the Air Canada flight crew. They were all helpful and friendly. The flight was late leaving Toronto due to Florida weather issues and the crew did a good job keeping us informed and as comfortable as possible during the wait."
Cons: "Very little room in the seats. I am a man 5' 9" tall so I am average height. I barely had leg room and even less so when the person in front of me reclined his seat. Made the 3 hour trip feel a little uncomfortable. I miss the "back of the seat" entertainment system although the option through Air Canada's app worked fine,"
Pros: "The in flight movie options were great, and the food and beverages were good."
Cons: "Paid $120.00 to select seats and then the crew forced us to switch! Outrageous!"
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"
Pros: "The crew really seemed to care about our comfort. They were very attentive and gave us extras if asked."
Cons: "The check in at the airport and going through Customs in the USA but the overall flight was good."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "Delightful crew."
Cons: "Decent dinner in business class, but pretty awful breakfast omelette. I didn’t figure out what should have been complete adjustability of seats, & crew could not help,"
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: "Crew was friendly. Pilot kept us informed. Did a great job with takeoff and landing. Entertainment selections were good. Food choices much better."
Cons: "On flight from DC to Paris seat preferences were changed by the airline . Was not able to sit with my family during this leg. Food choices were not good. Was not crazy about the chicken dish."
Cons: "My Wife and I got booted from Lufthansa to a United flight where our seats were across the plane from each other. In order to sit together, we had to spend another $300. United charged us an extra $100 for a check on bag that Swiss and Lufthansa did not charge us for."
Cons: "Crew was great. Long wait for operations on the ground to pull plane to gate was only negative."
Pros: "Quite all"
Cons: "My tablet wasn't working ...."
Pros: "Organized boarding. Left on time and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Small seats on aircraft."
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."
Pros: "arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "nothing really. Just a standard, OK, United flight."
Cons: "Inconsiderate surrounding passengers: adults kicking my seat, pushing on my headrest, leaving feet in aisles"
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: "They transfer me to a empty row so I can be more comfortable"
Pros: "They started food service immediately, offered free wine and beer. Were very helpful in getting carry-on in storage bin."
Cons: "2 hour delay in leaving."
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: "The huge windows and overhead bins on the 787 are fantastic. United has a decent seatback entertainment system, however it could stand to use maybe a few more movies. In economy the food was palatable, I went with the cheese manicotti for "lunch" and was awoken to a ham and cheese on a pretzel bun for "breakfast." The Illy coffee is much better than the old garbage."
Cons: "The boarding area at CDG while nice was very hot. The huge windows made the place a hot house. I was relieved to get on the plane where it was much cooler."
Pros: "Flying the the new 787 was good; not great - seating is still very tight, but that is the nature of flying; I get it. For what it is - no disappointments."
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Food and service"
Cons: "Speed of boarding, no hassle with carry on bags"
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Cons: "United inflight entertainment needs a massive upgrade - to say the least."
Pros: "The plane was only half full -- plenty of room!"
Cons: "Turbulence (not your fault)."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me...that were pleasant."
Cons: "That when I explained being hearing impaired the boarding attendant said my carry on needed to be checked. I didn't understand her and proceeded to the loading blank. Then when boarding the attendant informed me. I explained I checked my bag in the airport compartment tester and it was fine. I also asked the attendant at the counter. She confirmed it was fine. Still smiling until the snack pretzels were passed out. When I didn't hear the attendant's question, in spite of telling her I was hearing impaired, she threw her hand up rudely and just continued on to other customers. When boarding I watched orhers board with the same size bag as mine, and wondered if telling someone you can't hear gives them the right to inform you at the gate that your bag needs to be checked?"
Cons: "Very rough landing."
Pros: "It was my first international flights, and both going there and coming back went amazingly well. Everything was exceptional."
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: "I like that the plane was very clean and modern. The staff very nice and speaks both english and french."
Pros: "flights were on time with early arrivals."
Pros: "The man at the gate who helped us board went beyond what we expected by loading luggage in the overhead bin. The attendant Sherry was incredible--friendly, helpful, and considerate for all aspects of the flight."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline properly."
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."
Cons: "I couldn't put subtitles in French on English movies. 8 could only watch them dubbed. I didn't understand this as it seems standard for all other flights I've taken."
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: "Our flight was not operated by Lufthansa but by United Airlines. We received no email notification of this change and were very confused when we arrived at the airport and Lufthansa employees told us they don't operate a flight direct to New York. The flight was very nice with United but notice of this change was needed."
Pros: "The flight staff was really nice and attentive. They provided food and drinks."
Cons: "The flight got delayed a few times and there was a lot of turbalanece."
Cons: "my light does not focus on my area, but on neighbor's area."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the movie selection was expansive ."
Cons: "There was no seat available when I arrived so I had to wait outside the gate for a long time while the crew found one. There was a shortage of blankets. The food was not as palatable as I expected."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Service needs to be radically improved."
