Pros: "A330 very nice airplane. Clean and comfortable in Delta One. Very professional cabin crew. Very good boarding process, even with every bag hand inspected."
Cons: "Flight left the gate early and took off two hours late. Arrived Atlanta 100 minutes late. Why? 7000 pounds overweight. EZE departure switched runways as we left gate, requiring removal of cargo containers, not once, but twice. In summary, DL bet wrong on runway and wind component, at the expense of on time arrival and thus connections."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "Terrible baggage check and security lines (even Pre-Check!) at JFK Teeminal 1 (AirFrance)."

Pros: "That’s what you want, eh?"
Cons: "It would be nice to get a complementary cookie with the complementary coffee..... no concerns otherwise."
Cons: "If you want to have a different meal than what they offer, you have to contact customer service before hand. I never been on a flight so far, where there wasn’t a vegetarian option. So I was pretty surprised when they just offered beef fajitas. I asked for a vegetarian option only to find out there isn’t none. The flight attendant wasn’t super nice about it either, she just said you have to order it online. But at no point I got an email saying, if you want something different than what we offer, tell us! So that was pretty annoying..."
Pros: "On time good food excellent entertainment clean plane good crew"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The seat are so narrow"
Cons: "Our ticket said economy, but it was a specific set of economy that did not include any baggage. If we were warned prior we could have purchased it for significantly cheaper. Our ticket was not clear and it cost us 175usd for two bags at the airport. Very disappointing"

Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Pros: "Smoothest landing I've ever experienced."
Cons: "I missed the refreshments, if any were served at all. Granted I was tired and probably dosed off during that part of the flight."
Pros: "Fast on fast off"
Cons: "We got moved twice and then to a middle seat. Why have checking at all?"
Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Cons: "Due to a train mix-up, I arrived at the Frankfurt airport with only 53 minutes to get through security and board. Lufthansa would not let me through the process, even though I immediately told them about the problem. They not only refused to let me board, but also refused to reschedule me. I had to buy a whole new round-trip ticket at more than double the price in order to meet my family for our once-in-a-lifetime reuinion in Norway, but also make my existing connection for the return flight. It cost me an additional 999 Euros cash in the middle of my vacation because my Kayak ticket was not refundable."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "That the person with whom I would have shared seats, found one with their party - had all the space...by chance ! The people at the counters are nice."
Cons: "1) I had an empty bottle and asked for water for multiple medications (as I had sprained my foot) thinking the stewardess had a jug of water. She opened a bottle and poured a fifth . I said I had to take many pills (antiinflamatory are three) plus iron and probiotics I take. She told me, holding the used bottle mostly full, that if I wanted more , I should buy a bottle !!!! And put it away !!! How insensitive and inhuman !!! I didn't know she was going to open a bottle !!!! Very insulting !! 2) When another stewardess passed by offering food, I asked what did we have a right to and she (only then) offered me tea or coffee (which should have been offered first). They I asked, as in all other flights (short South American flights and USA donestic) if she gave crackers or nuts to which she unnecessarily gloated pointing to the curtain that there , in economic plus , they had everything free ...insulting treatment and unnecessary information ...just like in my trip to Nice !! Same attitude ...it's probably horrible training courses. 3) you'd think the men and women that speak over the loud speaker would have bothered to learn English ...it was broken English and even sounded like babble to me...so I just ignored it ! 3) again no instructions for transfer as you come out of the plane. Had to figure it out asking cleaners ..as my flight was at night again. People below seem to coincide in that they complain of rudeness and lack of re-direction."
Pros: "we landed 20 minutes before schedule"
Pros: "Crew taking care of us was excellent."
Cons: "Food terrible. Our seats in Plus were in bad condition, they move us that also were in bad condition, hey you are paying Plus to have good seats!"
Pros: "Fast bording. All good, no problems."
Cons: "Online check-in with just 24h before the flight. Can be a problem if you are travelling"
Pros: "Smooth Flight and on time with a bit of Aurora (night flight to Tromso)"
Cons: "Voucher does not show details of check-in baggage limitations (limited to 20 KG.) and has to use Oslo airport self check-in which is quite confusing for inter-continental traveller.."
Pros: "Flight from Kirkenes to Oslo delayed, which meant the rest of the flights were unusable. New flights were booked in Oslo through Copenhagen, which only lengthened the original trip time by about 5 minutes."
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The fights in there selves were cool."
Cons: "When I got to Oslo to connect to my other flight I had to do security again and the boarding was already starting. So I had to run like hell and got there on the nik of time."
Pros: "Nice meal, friendly staff"
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Cons: "A very fat man seated next to me and occupied half my seat, very uncomfortable!!!"
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Pros: "The seats were comfy"
Cons: "They don't even offer water as a free beverage, only coffee or tea. And, not even a packet of pretzels on a three-hour flight. I didn't miss the entertainment much, but on a three-hour flight, it's a nice option."
Cons: "Flight delayed because of "equipment change" bags lost.... No method to track(!!!!) total nightmare"
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "The plane was a half hour or so late taking off. We waited on the plane for most of that half hour with no explanation of why When calling rows to board -- after calling rows 1 through 13 she then called rows 41 and after. She skipped our row 14. This could definitely be an issue with overhead space"
Cons: "We bought tickets on priceline, Zurich to Oslo, paid $150 more for the shorter flight (by 1 1/2 hours), didn't realise the cost did not include luggage ($140 for 2 bags!), boarded late, only served water, coffee and tea, all other beverages were for a fee, landed late, bags were delayed by 30 minutes and soaked with water from the rain, some clothes inside were wet, overall poor experience, airline needs to polish their services and stop the 'nickel and dime" approach."
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Not even water or coffee was free. Charge for everything."
Cons: "Norwegian gives you nothing on international flights. We got no meal, no blanket, no pillow, and no leg room. The flight attendants never came by to give out drinks, or even to take trash. We could not even get a glass of water. They were not concerned at all with whether we had a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Everything was very nice."
Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
Pros: "Did was very good. Cattle call boarding."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
Pros: "The boarding and seating happened in a timely fashion, and the crew was courteous. The lunch meal (I had requested Asian vegetarian) wasn't amazing, but not as bad as it could've been."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, but it was actually through United, which was extremely confusing as I did my ticket confirmation, seat booking and meal choice through Lufthansa prior to my trip. To find out on the day of the flight that I had to check in and go through United was extremely annoying, as the counters are in different terminals and it was unnecessarily stressful. The flight itself was crammed, with absolutely no leg space, and not even enough space under the seat to stow my backpack (which had fit perfectly on my Brussels Airlines flight to Madrid). I had requested the Asian vegetarian meal, and the snack we got prior to landing was pretty much two slices of cucumber on a small bun (and an apple on the side) - extremely dry and hard to eat. I asked for mayo, but the flight neither had that, nor any other condiments to make the "sandwich" more edible."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Short, smooth flight."
Cons: "Bit of a delay, no entertainment due to technical difficulties. No forewarning of the technical difficulties until after we were on board the flight. A gate announcement would have allowed time to find a movie on Amazon, or some other platform for the flight."
Cons: "Checking was chaotic with non working terminals and insufficient staff Plane was real old (4” scree...even my phone has bigger screen) Onboard drinks were exorbitantly priced (paid 8.99$ for gin and tonic where I got only half can of tonic) Food was ok"
Pros: "Staff was ind and friendly. Generous"
Cons: "Wish there was better food. It was okay."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Sits are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Check in excellent, staff at airport very professional."
Cons: "No negative issues"
Cons: "This airline sucks so bad........I had a flight that' was suppose to leave at 6 pm from salt lake.....to LA .needless to say it's 11pm and I'm still seatingbon the runway"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "they were quick to get us in and off the flight"
Cons: "I’m a skinny man, and I was next to two skinny people, and we were all crammed shoulder to shoulder the entire flight, theres no room to get your elbows out of your sides. The flight was late, as per usual with United..."
Pros: "Departure from Newark was delayed but the man at the desk, an entertaining guy, kept us informed."
Pros: "Attendants were great"
Cons: "Needle point lady sitting next to me used more room than I'd would've liked. The upgrade wasn't much of an upgrade, guess I'll have to see what aircraft I'm on before I pay the extra for little comfort."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""
Pros: "The crew were friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious."
Cons: "My legs hurt during the flght and I couldn't get pills for air sickness, plus a half-an-hour delay. Also, my screen didn't work properly, which needs repair."
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "The fact that it was a large 777! Those just feel safer."
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"
Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed and missed connection. Cost me a day of work"

Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"
Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"
Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"
Pros: "I didn't eat any food on board so I am not really able to make a rating."
Cons: "I wish there would have been individual screens provided for an in flight movie or entertainment. The crew in both my flights were lovely. All were pleasant and very nice."
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The aircraft used on this flight is ancient. Did not have a working entertainment system (neither did the three seats next to me). Audio port didn't work so you couldn't listen to music either. Forget about USB/electrical outlets. Food was horrible. Aircraft seats were uncomfortable. Garbage left on the seats from.the previous flight. Overall experience was very similar to flying in Ryan Air in the UK. Absolutely horrendous."

Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"
Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Small seats and not much leg room."
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"
Cons: "I booked a window seat and when I got to PDX I did not have a seat. United worked to rearrange seats so couples could sit together, which I do understand but I ended up with a middle seat on a redeye flight."
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Pros: "That we arrived safely, the toilets functioned properly, they did have enough drinking water if we chased it down ourselves"

Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."
