Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was helpful and patient. The food and drinks were good."
Cons: "Clarity in the PA system could be better. Too much background noise."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I ordered two seats to accommodate my rate. I was moved after I checked in to another seat without notice. It was embarrassing to move after I was seated early and arrive at a set that I didn't fit in."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "More comfortable seats in main cabin"
Pros: "Empty seats direct into Indy."

Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Cons: "Late arrival"
Pros: "The gate agents were nice enough."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour without information as to why we were delayed. We missed our connection in Atlanta, even though we arrived at the gate in time to see the gate agent shut the door while we were running and waving. We arrived at the gate 8 minutes before the flight departure time also. The flight attendant on the flight from Fayetteville just handed out water and cookies without asking what you wanted. She had coffee and snack mix but didn’t ask anyone, just handed them what they got. Overall I was very disappointed in the flight from Fayetteville, NC to Atlanta and with the gate agents at the Atlanta airport. I usually expect more from delta. They didn’t offer vouchers to make up for the missed connection or offer to pay for a hotel since the next flight out was the next morning."
Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."
Cons: "seats were broken, armrest broken"
Pros: "Nothing really getting home"
Cons: "Freezing whole flight Coffee was warm not hot Lady in front of me never charged for her drink (beer)"
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "Horrible seats. Scraped up my knees on a screwhead on the seat in front of me. Way too cramped."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly staff."
Cons: "The wifi was not working during this flight. The ceiling light/fan controls are too close to the window for the aisle seat to reach them. During boarding, it was too hot. The boarding process was delayed 10-15 minutes without any updates."
Pros: "The food and the service"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. The overall flight was fast so no time to get uncomfortable."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Smooth quick flight."
Cons: "I had to rebook as opposed to it being done by Delta. Cancelation was due to equipment."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Cons: "Plane too warm."
Pros: "Left on time, no hassles at boarding. We were in premium economy and seating was comfortable for both of us, not-too-tall people. FA were quite friendly."
Cons: "One bathroom wouldn't flush, which was a problem with limited facilities and a full flight."
Pros: "friendly staff check in was fast food was good"
Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"
Pros: "It's Delta so I got miles"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in. Look for a flight with first class or a bigger plane, they have them"
Pros: "on time, clean, prompt."
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac in Traverse City for 15 minutes waiting for gate to open up"
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was wonderful and was funny on the flight. Kayak kept me informed of all gate changes and delays."
Cons: "The Delta app did not update about any of my gate changes nor were they announced by the gate agents."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "Excellent crew and flight. Love the ability to.choose a movie to watch."
Cons: "Semicircular terminal area is so loud that it is hard to hear your flight calls even if you are sitting right near checkin desk. Not nearly enough chairs; people sitting on floors or standing everywhere. Hope it get better."
Cons: "I had a problem getting a boarding pass that was a carryforward from a problem that I had had on the flights from the USA to Frankfort 2 weeks earlier. On those flights, I was denied boarding on the flight from Amsterdam to Frankfort because of miscommunication between Delta and KLM. Apparently, the staff who dealt with that problem did not note that the issue had occurred, so it looked like there were "out-of-sequence" segments on my initial flight and I was not allowed to check in electronically. It took several calls to KLM and Delta in Frankfurt to try to resolve the problem and finally it was determined that it could only be resolved at the airport. Other than a very nice KLM representative, the other people I talked to seemed unwilling to engage in helping me and sent me along to someone else. Although the problem was ultimately fixed, this was not a great customer service experience."
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Pros: "We landed 50 min early!"
Cons: "The aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly before boarding."
Pros: "Nothing to like -- didn't fly"
Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."
Pros: "The length of the flight, one of the flight attendants WAS very charming."
Cons: "When I asked for a drink, after having fallen asleep and awoken just as the cart passed me, I was told just one minute, 10 minutes later, a flight attendant came by, they had food, I asked again for some water, was again told in just a minute, took 20 minutes to get water. The earbuds I was given didn't work, my own didn't work, apparently the seat I was in has a connectivity issue, so the sound kept blasting in and out and was horrible. I had to hold the connector in the seat. The food option was non-existant once the cart came to me, the only option was chicken, which was horrible. Overall, I was not impressed with the service or flight ...."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude! I also it would have been nice to be told the wifi wasn't working!"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Customer service not friendly, seats are not very good, no food or entertainment on a 3.5 hour flight. United just transports you from A to B for a high price."
Pros: "it was fit on me"
Cons: "tap water for free?"
Cons: "staff Attitude could be better. Also no milk for toddlers but free vine for people to get drunk, be loud on overnight flight, then snore and stink drunk. My table was all in some snort when I opened it to put my meal on. Dirty lavatory floors."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived in Lyon early. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't go back."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew friendly"
Cons: "My seat and table were dirty and sticky. We had a 45 min delay. I was seated in the middle of the plane and received my meal lady and of course had no more meal choice available since they had run out . For the snack I also was given a different meal than my seat neighbor"
Pros: "Boeing 777 seating is comfortable, other is not so much."
Pros: "Soft drinks + food"
Cons: "Bit of delay."
Pros: "Selection of movies and stewardes."
Cons: "When I reserved in Kayak it said it included luggage!! I was charged 65 pounds!!! I need a regund for this!!!! Please let me know what to do!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "I'm a tall guy so I always complain about the cramped seats."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good dinner, decent entertainment selection, a few very good crew members."
Cons: "IFE screens are rather small for it being a brand new plane."
Cons: "Most passengers had to pay for any food even water. No plugs at the seats."
Cons: "The flight was 1+ hour late, but little information made available, including basic info like gate."
Pros: "was a very unremarkable flight,"
Pros: "Service and Care with sense of humor! I have sat in both business and economy, and while I prefer the room in business, I still feel the service is just as wonderful in economy. I got all I asked for including bubbly in economy! I like to stay awake on the way back to the US and asked for two coffee's and a bubbly, a ginger and an OJ just before dinner & refills on cafe. Of course I thought I was pushing it to ask for it all at once, but they laughed, proceeded to fill my wishes and with a good sense of humor asked If I wanted anything else! I actually got everything I asked for! Super!"
Cons: "I pre bought my seat and chose an aisle. The plane was changed and I ended up in a window seat within the same row I had chosen on the other plane lay out. I prefer the aisle as I like to get up a lot and hate to annoy others who may prefer not to get up every time I do. I was lucky that the flight had plenty of empty seats and was able to move to an aisle after asking. What happens on a full flight? I would have been really upset. What is the point of pre-booking one' s seat? If the plane is changed, BA ought to take care to make sure a pre-booked seat gets a window/aisle near the row they chose. I suspect that is more important than the row on a long flight."
Pros: "orderly boarding"
Cons: "seat assignment"
Cons: "Not a lot of space"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Nice plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Water and all other food and drinks were for sale only. No entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Welcoming crew"
Cons: "Too warm, one of the seats did not recline fully, very poor choice of entertainment"
Pros: "No refreshments were offered."
Pros: "crew was very welcoming which made our journey very comfortable"
Pros: "No wait, easy to check in & get luggage"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Father with two young daughters was presented at checkin with separated seats, so we had to request others to trade with us once we were on the plane. Which they happily did. I was not able to reserve seats online for some reason; therefore the staff at check in should know that they should try to reserve three seats together for a parent traveling with two pre-teen kids."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was absolutely no room for me in the seat. It was very cramped. The planes from Dublin to Munich and Munich to London looked dated and shabby. There was no entertainment available. The food was mediocre to bad."
Pros: "I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important"
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude."
Pros: "Seats were leather, plane was clean"
Cons: "Delayed over half and hour"
Cons: "Seats were not as nice as on Lufthansa premium economy and there was no option to buy a pass to the business class lounge (as there is with Lufthansa). The return flight plane had no extendable leg rest in the seat as I did in the first flight. This was disappointing."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."
Pros: "arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "Nothing was included. No snacks, not even pretzels or peanuts. No beverages unless you wanted to pay for it. No entertainment, such as music or TV shows (flight too short for movies.)"
Pros: "Lots of luggage space, even in the back. Infotainment system takes away the pain of flying steerage class."
Cons: "Was in the final row of a 777-400 series. Super small 4 across seats and limited recline."
Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"
Pros: "Nice plane, nice people, comfortable seats most importantly for coach though a bit cramped"
Pros: "British Air was excellent, but there was poor connectivity between them and Kayak(webjet)which left me seeking information even at the last minute"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses were great. They worked hard to feed and hydrate the people in their areas, and didn't get cranky when people got up to walk around and exercise. They were pleasant and always available to help if problems came up.. They maintained a good sense of humor and seemed to care about keeping people in good spirits."
Cons: "We ran 2 hours and 10 min. over schedule getting from London to PHX. I can't understand why because pilot never said we were running late. When we landed we weren't told about the 2hr 10 min. time overage, but my sister said the plane reversed course around Iceland for a while, then turned around again and got back on track, but the PHX cell lot flight tracking board never said the flight was delayed or running late. She waited for me to get out of the airport an additional 3 hours. Luggage took a LONG time to get to the staging area and we had no clue what the problem was. It seems a simple task to put the PHX luggage in one area of cargo, and luggage going on to another destination in another area so 1st off clients could get their luggage and leave. There was a lot of luggage on the carousel that didn't get picked up. Very poor on the ground crew's part. When I have been in the air for 10 - 12 hours, I want to get my luggage and get home. Customs was a breeze compared to getting my luggage. BA lost my luggage at Heathrow on the way to Prague, and on the return had problems getting luggage to the passengers WAITING at the airport. You need to address how you handle customer luggage."
Cons: "The luggage is missing"
Cons: "I bought my ticket through you and thanks to you my name was spelled wrong and I could not get my ticket. We called the company for hours but no one would help us. I had to buy a ticket that was double what I bought from you. I demand that I get a refund in full of $1300 and another $2700 to cover the ticket that I had to buy last minute. Email me at email@example.com about how we can go about doing this."
Cons: "Your ATM not working and my wife and i having to leave the line to another location we were directed. Even that took an extraordinarily long time. We also were forced to pay excess for our carry -on which was not required of us going to Geneva. The flight itself was uneventful."
Pros: "The crew was great, food was very good, the entertainment system was awesome"
Pros: "This flight was the best I have ever taken. The seats were comfortable with a good amount of leg room. The entertainment system was great with a large variety of options. The staff was professional and attentative."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "I won't be using either British Airways or K yak again due to their Bait and Switch misrepresentation. They moved my reservation to Air fare. c.. I specifically chose a British Airways flight due to good previous experiences, and I paid more for the ticket. After completing the purchase I then find out that they are putting me on American Airlines rather that BA. This was unacceptable to me, due to AA poor reputation. They wanted $950 to cancel the flight. An expensive lesson. Shop elseware!"
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was malfunctioning. Movies were starting passed the beginning and the system was crashing."
Pros: "The check in process was very nice and smooth. The staff was so nice and friendly. Flight attendants were very nice too."
Cons: "The seats are just too squished. For a ten hour flight, it was SO uncomfortable."
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Bumped from business to coach and given a lousy $300 voucher."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "On-time, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are too tight. Board from the outsides in, not front to back. Windows seats in the back go first (after first class, ADA, etc), and fill the cheap seats back to front. As it is, literally everyone with an aisle seat ends up on first and overheads fill before people have a chance to know, requiring a lot of against-the-flow foot traffic and delays pushing away from gate."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."
Cons: "Customer service didn't even try to find connecting flights and informed us that there were no other flights going to Phoenix. Which was a lie. I will never book with American again."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, very helpful and nice!"
Cons: "The touch screen for the entertainment didn't work so I wasn't able to watch or so anything"
Pros: "Crew good seat was better than than the last. Food really good"
Cons: "Shorter fly time"
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "Easy in easy out"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "Plane was nice and comfortable, enjoyed blanket and pillow. Cabin soft drink service was good."
Cons: "Ok movie selection, more less R rated movies to choose from would be nice. Served snack literally 20 minutes before we landed, kinda silly."
Pros: "Great crew! Comfortable seats!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and our seats were exit row which was comfortable. We had terrible weather and the pilots crafted an exceptional and safe landing. The flight attendant was hilarious!!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was great"
Pros: "NO NO"
Pros: "Great service from crew!"
Cons: "Satisfied all around..."
Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."
Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."
Pros: "The food and the snack was pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $20 for the 24 hours of Wi-Fi and it never worked On either flight. The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "No movie."
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
Pros: "My connecting flight from london arrived late and the crew made sure i made it onto the flight to stl even though I barely made it to the gate on time."
Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"
Cons: "The in flight wi if didn’t work part of the flight."
Cons: "American Airlines DISCRIMINATES especially against the elderly! The airlines took my family of 6 off the flight that I booked 6 months in advance, and I had no flight out of Munich, Germany. I do not know why. I called and had them put us back on the flight. I paid extra for seats so that we could all sit together. The seats were given to others and my family could not sit together. The American Airlines employees were not helpful at all! The agent, Rowna, lied to us that we would be sitting together. They will not reimburse me for paying extra for seats that I did not get. The porter that pushed my mother in the wheelchair was more helpful than any employee."
Pros: "It was on time, crew members were great."
Cons: "My video screen watching a movie froze the last couple of hours. Let the attendants know, nothing ever happened and reminded them a few times over the 2 hr period."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival; room to stow carry-on's; able to move to vacant row to give both the other guy in my row and me some extra leg room."
Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "The fact that we got home without our luggage missing"
Cons: "Flights were operated by American Airlines. The touch screens on the flights between Munich to Philadelphia. Apparently this was a known issue so I have no idea why the company didn't care to fix it. The food served was awful and tasteless. Not to mention that webjet once again made errors with out booking which the AA ground staff were nice enough to fix."
Cons: "It wasn't a FinnAir flight! After looking everywhere and nobody could find records. It finally came up on American Airlines. Bad communication!"
Pros: "All of the flight was OK - nothing special -"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not like her job at all - like a robot - no smiles, frustrated and bored"
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"
Pros: "Great movie/entertainment selections and the food was very tasty."
Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."
Cons: "This was actually an American Airline flight with other carrier names. I hate how AA tries to get passengers to pay more for seating. Even less than 24 hours before the flight they were trying to trick me into selecting a less desirable seat or pay an additional $93 per seat. It was only because we got to the airport early did better seats mysteriously become available. Even after selecting seats they still tried to get us to pay for "better" seating."
Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Got delayed by almost 2 hours, no wifi or food on the plane."
Pros: "The smoothness of the ride"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed then we sat on plane for an hour before take off. Then movies i wanted to watch wouldnt work and crew was annoyed and not helpful. Food was ok... mashed potatoes would have been better as rice with chicken."
Pros: "When we printed out our boarding passes the two seats that we bought were not listed. The agent at the boarding gate was awesome and got us two seats together. The flight was smooth and the flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."
Pros: "Plane was not full and seats seemed spacious. Everything was on time."
Cons: "the entertainment systems was very slow to respond to the touch commands on the screen."
Pros: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "The fact that American Airlines woman at the gate when we showed up at 12:10 pm for 12:15 pm flight asked us if we were the four people from the airberlin flight and told us that they knew our flight landed late but that we were too late to catch this flight home because they closed the gate. She barley gave us direction on what to do about getting a new flight or fudging our bags."
Pros: "It was a great experience. Flight on time, excellent seats, even though the reservation was made one day before flying out due to an emergency. Wonderful flight crew. Will suggest to others and fly likely again."
Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"
Pros: "Great crew. Modern plane, excellent legroom with a payment of €100. I’m 194cm and could barely reach seat in front with my feet. Food very good, Bathrooms downstairs large and always was available. Entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The comfort on board for economy class was great, I didn’t feel like a sardine in a tin can. The configuration of the Boeing 787 was also excellent. The crew was as well also great. Overall we were quite surprised."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Comfortable as well. Courteous and attentive crew."
Cons: "The food was awful if you didn't like curry or cheese (my husband and son didn't eat and it was a 9 hour flight). The landing was aborted after the wheels were on the ground. We came down way too fast and hard, and had to take off again and ascend very quickly. Circled an additional 25 mins before landing again."
Cons: "Unprofessional rude United staff"
Pros: "Crew were fabulous with my children, 2 and 5 years old."
Cons: "Not enough room on jetway to collapse and open stroller. My kids almost got trampled as I was doing this even though they stood still against the wall!"
Cons: "Wait time for US specific security check Line was too long and slow"
Pros: "Entertainment variety and selection. Food and Drink. Had the curry chicken, surprisingly good."
Cons: "Not enough food & drink service. On an 11 hour flight went 4 hours without a visit from food/drink cart. On the flight from Houston to Munich the food was lousy but we got several more visits/opportunities for drinks."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Pros: "On time boarding, comfortable seating. The young man who was the sole flight attendant was excellent (attentive, competent, kind)."
Cons: "Boarding in Munich -- our flight came in 1/2 hour late into Munich. Although I believe that security questions/answers may be necessary in foreign countries, I believe that 5-6 minutes of questioning when a flight is already boarding is a bit much."
Pros: "Apart from the poor attitude of the lady in Denver the rest went fine."
Pros: "Nothing I like on that flight. Food was ok but cared little for when you make unscheduled stops due to pilot not following us regulations. Get stranded in DC over night no compensation for hotel just a horrible experience !"
Cons: "Everything that went on on that flight ... Except the food being ok Stewardesses tried their best."
Cons: "Terrible position of the seat. In between bathrooms and crying kids when I had requested the exact opposite. Food was awful. I had a vegetarian meal."
Cons: "US Customs!!!! Inefficient and long!!"
Cons: "Confusion and lack of communication about the extra screening process in the airport right before boarding. No information provided ahead of time, to alert me to arrive at the boarding gate early for the extra screening. After I passed through the extra security screening at the gate in Munich, and then went to the counter to complete the extra passport check and security questions, I was asked to step aside and wait. No one told me why. I had to insist on an explanation to the airline staff, and realized there was a mistake - they thought I had not gone through the extra security screening before going to the passport check counter, but I had. This created extra stress and delay for me, as this took place when boarding had started. Respectfully, I suggest that staff is more communicative."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours on the tarmac with no food/water due to a mechanical issue that should have been checked and cleared before they boarded the flight. Also flying economy was awful. Hardly any room in the seats."
Cons: "She was not able to fly to Germany even though we paid for the ticket"
Cons: "The boarding process was unnecessarily complicated by United Airlines. I was made to wait right until take off time without any information while they "confirmed my visa" on which I entered the US multiple times in the past."
Pros: "We were very pleased with the service and comfort. Special recognition for our flight attendant, Robin. She was wonderful."
Cons: "It would have been great to have a USB port at the seat as in other international airlines."
Cons: "can't believe you still have those low quality touch screens. they are very non-touch sensitive, and don't respond well to attempted touch commands."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled, basically no communication and I had to stay 3.45 hours in line to be able to reschedule my new flight."
Cons: "We booked what was labeled a Lufthansa flight and paid extra because we had flown Lufthansa before and thought the service and the flight were excellent. Imagine our surprise when we found out it was a United Flight. We were on the plane for almost 11 hours and we just had a small lunch and a snack that was tiny. We were starving when we got off. Next time, British Airways gets my money. I want to know what airline I am paying for all the way through without the switching shenanigans."
Cons: "Munich - Houston overnight flight. No breakfast. No good."
Pros: "People of Lufthansa and the clients who were flying with me."
Pros: "Very efficient personnel. Clean plane, nice big bathroom."
Cons: "I politely asked the attendant if they might have coconut or almond milk and felt like I was laughed at."
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"
Pros: "The boarding process was orderly. Boarding preference was professional and as expected. Cabin crew were exceptionally cordial, professional, and helpful."
Cons: "The upgrade to economy plus did not provide me with the better traveling accommodation/experience . The row 20 seats are narrow and very uncomfortable for two typical American males, not sure why airline charged me extra. I had to sit sideways during my entire trip from Munich to Chicago. Experienced 9 very uncomfortable hours. In all honesty, I think row 42 seats provide better traveling comfort."
Pros: "Once in the air the flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Doing the online check-in my wife and I were assigned seats on opposite sides of the aircraft and it was painful trying to get it resolved. We kept being put off to someone else and despite being among the first at the gate we ended up being among the last to get it resolved because of being put off to other people only to see the same person help someone else. It was finally resolved satisfactorily thankfully"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options. Attentive crew. Food and beverage selections were great."
Cons: "the side dish for dinner was some oat/grain something that wasn't very tasty."
Cons: "Your company and crew make me sick, and all of you should feel ashamed and embarrassed."
Pros: "I broke my arm and all of the gate agents were wonderful trying and succeeding in getting me A seats for my comfort."
Pros: "Check-in in Munich was friendly, professional, efficient. Pleasant flight. On time."
Cons: "Condescending flight attendant There should be an announcement for people to close their shades at cruising altitude. Bright sunlight hitting your peripheral vision is very stressful."
Cons: "Was canceled"
Pros: "punctuality, crew service"
Cons: "everything was Ok, average intercontinental flight"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were to small as I was stuck in the middle of 2 other people."
Cons: "Very confusing on checking in. I spent 30 min calling Lufthansa trying to check-in ahead of time only to find out that I was actually flying United. Confirmation email did not make state that I was to check in with United Airlines. Also the confirmation number I received did not apply to United."
Pros: "Good flight crew. Decent food given it was coach. Reasonably comfortable seat though I paid to upgrade to economy plus."
Cons: "Lavs got messier over time. Boarding process always gives me stress."
Cons: "Service Food Flight attendants have a horrible attitud"
Cons: "Nobody told us the flight operated by United Airline was cancelled, until we found it when we checked in a night before. We had to make international calls to reschedule it. Our original was a direct flight from MUC to ORD at noon, we had fly to FRT first at 10am. It would be a very mess if we checked in at airport next day. Who would be responsible for the situation if the trip was operated by two airlines like UA and Lufthansa? Certainly not customers. Since the change, we had to cancel some our plan and spent three more hours on the return trip."
Cons: "food was lousy, comfort level of the seats for a long flight was aweful"
Pros: "Luggage handling was good."
Cons: "Boarding in flight was away from the gate. We almost got soaked in the rain. Climbing up and down was not convenient."
Cons: "Old equipment. Average service. Lumpy seat. Terrible food."
Pros: "Good in flight service& crew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding for business class and cramped waiting area. UA plane and facilities not as clean as Lufthans. Ran out of food selection and no amenity kits for passengers"
Cons: "Airlines asking the economy customers to upgrade the seats . Without the upgrade they are giving random seats numbers to the family"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."
Pros: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "Although my wife and I booked our tickets together, United refused to put our seats together. Instead, we had to bargain with other passengers in order to get seats together. This has been a consistent problem when flying United"
Cons: "Our family of four was scattered in four different seats. The food did not include a salad! Otherwise, it was all fine."
Cons: "My partner and I did not get to sit together on this 10-hour flight despite being booked on the same PNR. The flight seemed to have been operated by United rather than LH. I was crammed into a window seat next to a single passenger who did not speak my language, so I was unable to ask him whether he would switch seats with my partner. The crew weren't helpful either."
Cons: "Flight got to Chicago really late. Then had to run a mile to just make the closing of our gates. Now we are missing half our luggage and no one knows where it is"
Pros: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "Food. Not tasty."
