Pros: "Staff and equipment"
Cons: "Early to arrive but gate not ready so we lost our edge"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Good movie choices. Clean bath rooms. However - I wish every airline in each bathroom had a notice on the toilet to PLEASE LOWER THE SEAT AND COVER! I prefer using the bathroom after another woman has used it!"

Pros: "Seats and service."
Pros: "Plenty of meals and friendly service"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
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."
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "The meal on Air France (a code share with Delta) was excellent."
Cons: "Very bad seat in the exit row. It was very narrow and hardlly reclined at all. there was no place to put your things because there was no seat in front of it. Legroom was very good."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
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."
Pros: "Delta does a good job of seating and meals and flight offerings"
Cons: "The crew were not customer oriented and seemed like they really weren't interested in their clients. Also we were bounced around between Air France and Delta at the ir port and when trying to check in online even though we booked through Delta."
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Pros: "It was my first time to fly Air France. They exceeded my exceptions. The service was great and they made sure we were very comfortable. I will definitely fly Air France again."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"
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!"
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: "Only thing I liked was the time, took off on time."
Cons: "Some flight attendants were in worse mood, they don't even smile. Communication was poor, and they did not even offer me a meal. I was ignored although I paid for the meal. This was very disappointing. Next time might consider, Lufthansa or any other airlines."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."
Pros: "Beverage choices (apéritifs, wines, etc.) were decent in coach. Plane was clean. Entertainment system was very good. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Seat width in coach was terrible. Had a heavier person next to me and I was crowded out in my seat."
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"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lost luggage,, will be delivered to our house"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was fairly good, even on economy class."
Cons: "Probably not under Delta's control, but the customs at Seatac is extremely disorganized. The contrast between CDG (Paris), which was very good, and SEA (Seattle), which was very chaotic, was quite large."
Pros: "The agents at the gate were very efficient and the flight crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "My seat area was not clean. The arm rest and the tray area had food? on it."
Cons: "Only the price and boarding was different for this Air France run Delta flight. All the seats (3&3), space and service were the same throughout this plane."
Pros: "Good flight, comfortable; good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept failing"
Pros: "Staff was Amazing!"
Cons: "I thought I'd be flying Lufthansa but I got United. I feel Gypt."
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: "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,"
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."
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."
Pros: "Boarding went very smoothly. Flight attendants were good. I was glad that water was offered several times during the flight."
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: "On time flight, food was good, entertainment system worked well. Leg room adequate for a tall person."
Cons: "Nothing really to complain about"
Pros: "On time. Tasty eats. Good crew"
Cons: "Sound in the movies is sub-par"
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."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Very pleasant staff."
Cons: "Almost missed the flight due to border police lines being extensively long in Paris. They had to rush me through after my third request. I go to the airport 90 minutes ahead of flight time."
Cons: "Food and service"
Cons: "United inflight entertainment needs a massive upgrade - to say the least."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding - excellent crew. Flight was on time - smooth operation."
Cons: "In economy, if the person in front of you reclines all the way - it totally invades your space and is not sustainable. I put up with a rude princess that reclined her chair the whole 8 hours (even when she went to the bathroom). I get that they need to recline...but there has to be some ethical guidelines!"
Cons: "Very rough landing."
Pros: "Virtually empty flight"
Cons: "1h delayed but warned about it hours before"
Cons: "Fly was late. Luggage delivery was slow."
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: "I liked that we landed early, but the airport was not ready for us, so practically all the advantage of the early landing was lost. The food was decent, but the final snack was kind of rushed. We had a safe, relatively smooth flight."
Cons: "I couldn't hear many of the announcements and the intercom quality was poor. Seating is always cramped in Economy, especially on a crowded flight."
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: "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."
Pros: "Attendant kept re-filling our wine glasses! Very friendly!"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be nice."
Pros: "My ticket was with Lufthansa but the airline was in fact United Airlines. My original flight was from Paris to Newark. The United flight was cancelled with no explanation. So there was nothing to like."
Cons: "The United flight was cancelled with no explanation. My orignal ticket was for a direct 8 hour flight. When my flight was rescheduled it was with a connection in Washington, D.C. with a 4 hour lay-over. I arrived home almost 5 hours later than scheduled. Awful experience!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth with a perfect landing, so I was happy with the pilot."
Cons: "The United Airline Flight Attendants who were French were rude. The pilot announced that several of them were retiring after working for 50 years. I think they stayed in their jobs too long because they were very abrupt when I asked for a USA custom form instead of a French form."
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."
Cons: "The lousy attitude, mediocre equipment, non-proactive planning to prepare for a known problem......overall, this is not the airline, I used to fly few years back. I think, United knows that there are not many options for New Jersey residents to fly anywhere, without being on UA flights so they take customers for granted.......Well, it won't be for too long, if they don't get their act together.......People will start driving to Philadelphia and find themselves other choices......"
Pros: "Same as above"
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."
Pros: "Nothing that I liked about this trip."
Cons: "We were accommodated twice in Chicago and we paid for our own transportation and accommodation. I will never book with UA again in the rest of my life."
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: "The staff are friendly and cordial despite passengers weary of long lines."
Cons: "You should warn travelers,especially in summer, to get to the airport at least 3 hours in advance. The lines for check-in with United Airlines are very long and slow and other check-in points have long lines. The staff are very nice and friendly, however."
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."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good . I had last row on plane, aisle seat in central section. Good because there are only 3 seats across. Flight attendants very pleasant."
Cons: "The recline of my seat was not working properly. I could push it back and it would have been quite comfortable since seat slid forward a bit when back rest went back, but my seat would just spring back into upright position."
Pros: "Good leg room. Good Movies. Good Service."
Cons: "This was not Lufthansa, this was United."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "To start the flight was 1.5 hours late leaving Chicago. About one hour late arriving in Paris. 15 to 20 minutes at a time!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snack at all on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight until very last minute. Landing was rough, very abrupt descent."
Pros: "Sitting in economy plus is definitely the way to go for a trans Atlantic flight. The seats are very comfortable and give me, an average size person, enough leg room to sit for longer periods of time. The inflight videos are great and the staff was exceptionally courteous."
Cons: "United still falls behind on food offerings. Although the food is not unexceptional, it is not the best. Definitely pack snacks if you want to eat healthier and fix your hunger cravings."
Pros: "The flight was great. Fast. Efficient. State College, PA is a lovely part of the world. Unless you're a wayward young boy but otherwise pretty good."
