Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi.

Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "Nice new Boeing 787, lots of space."
Cons: "Seat could use a bit more cushion, a bit thin for a long haul service. Also, had to take a bus to the aircraft which slowed the boarding."
Cons: "Lost lugage not yet delibered"
Pros: "Flat bed seats 747 upper deck"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 7 days"
Cons: "seating, food, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "The AA app broke"
Pros: "EVERYTHING about this flight was a NIGHTMARE. From the delays, to the agents, to the crew - absolutely terrible. Will never fly American again. They claim the flights are full but have a TON of empty seats and don't let you pay for upgrades."
Pros: "The seating, the comfort, the entertainment, the complimentary food, the drinks. Everything was great with American Airlines."
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin was delayed 2-1/2 hours. So we missed our connecting flight to SJC. Instead of flying back at 5:15 PM we flew back at 8:13 PM. But that flight didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They rerouted us to fly into SFO which is about 1-1/2 hours further than SJC from our house. Not good!"
Cons: "The sound didn't work on my entire row for the in flight entertainment; it made for a long flight."
Cons: "No delay Ability to connect wireless headphones"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Sometimes it’s not airlines fault. Not 100% clear on who was at fault. Toilets apparently water wasn’t working on aircraft. Upon landing at BNA a baggage guy attempted to rush us because flight was late and needed to get back to ORD. With no consideration for over 2hrs waiting"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
Cons: "I was unable to order a vegan meal in advance of the flight online."
Pros: "Customer service when my flight was delayed twice and then cancelled."
Cons: "I hated that there were sudden updates of delays just moments before we were supposed to board, then delayed for a day, then cancelled. I was fortunate to be re-routed to San Francisco (I am on the way) now, through United airlines. All in all, it was a stressful inconvenience."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good food"
Pros: "Nothing Flight was delayed , which made me miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Mostly the staff who were not friendly at all. Two of them were very arrogant and ignorant. I’m not looking forward to my flight home and I’m thinking of changing airlines. I’ll never travel AA again. Very disappointing."
Pros: "We appreciated that American Airlines found us two seats together for the long Dublin-Chicago leg of our journey."
Cons: "Miserable food. Just horrible quality. Truly - and I'm not picky."
Pros: "Friendly crew made a long international flight with a 14 month old as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for the most part friendly crew, with one exception. Flight left right on time and landed with no extra time to taxi. That was a welcomed benefit."
Cons: "No wifi on plane and no individual tv's for movie selections. Also had to pay extra for an aisle seat. Could not select seat at time of purchase. Didn't know if I called Iberia or American to make seat selection. Confusing with two different flight numbers. One from Iberia and one from American. Passengers should be made aware of which airline they are flying on at time of purchase."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good crew, no other problems."
Cons: "Several video system restarts and my arm rest USB and audio jack randomly stopped working for the whole flight. Lots of people had no video screen working too. Food tasted good but had so many chemicals in it that I had digestive issues the whole flight from both meals."
Cons: "Missed first connecting flight because American Airlines wouldn't allow me to check in online due to having a toddler in my party. Had to pay for next day transfer. $240 a person. Will never use American Airlines again!"
Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."
Pros: "Everything! Leg room"
Cons: "The touch screen for entertainment was maddening!"
Pros: "I liked that a pilot of the flight was a woman."
Cons: "First, the gate staff in Dublin called my name to assure my bag was arriving to JFK. They assured it is! Guess what! The bag never arrived and was stock in London!"
Pros: "The service and the food was great and getting to watch new release movies was a pleasant bonus"
Cons: "We did not get the seats we purchased but we did get a refund"
Pros: "loved the movie selection and how nice the crew was"
Cons: "The fact that my party was seated in different areas of the plane."
Cons: "Planes too old"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Didn't have much option of food because I don't eat meat or dairy. I had the sides of salad, bread, and crackers. I'm used to not having many options as a vegan and don't expect there to be much available, but just commenting."
Pros: "ON TIME!!!!! Nice folks, smooth and safe."
Cons: "Got through the extensive security lines to USA one hour before scheduled departure and looked at the screen which said 'final boarding' which was not true and made us panic a bit, running for the gate. It did board and leave on time but not an hour early. This flight was night and day different than our ORD to Dublin flight of 5.12.17 which was 5 hours delayed and do stressful."
Pros: "Nice crew. Chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "Not enough movies! No individual screens. Plans had dirt stuck all along the air vents"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Wish the plane had been equipped with personal entertainment screens on the seatbacks."
Pros: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "Lousy food. Cramped seats, try to make you pay extra for seats to sit together,"
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."
Pros: "Good food-ample space"
Cons: "Tv didnt work for 3+ hours took 4 attendants to restart it."
Pros: "My wife and liked the food selection during both flights. We also liked how one of five flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their job. And also how that one flight attendant made sure we were taken care of."
Cons: "Initially upon arriving in phili, my wife and I boarded the plane and I walked on the plane first than immediately my wife was asked by a flight attendant if she was supposed to be on the flight without any explanation at all, it was weird and disheartening. Also other than one flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and I am a big customer service man, and some of the attendants didn't seem to care AT ALL at many points, very disappointed. Also he plane that we took out of the United States to go to Ireland was very small, and the plane to return us to the states was very small as well. The flight from our connection in phili to go to Charlotte was the biggest plane we had, just for a two hour ride.. really disaipointsd with American Airlines."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No gluten free food available"
Cons: "Plane was falling apart. Food served frozen cold. Entertainment was commercials then nothing for hours. Crew was a mess and rude. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "No leg room, tight."
Cons: "Not good movie available"
Cons: "The flight crew was very rude"
Pros: "Individual TV. Price."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight attendants were equally bad. Only one attendant was helpful and accommodating. They act like they don't like being there. Need to take lessons from Emirites Airlines. Or Swiss Air. Or even Ethiopian Airlines. Just smile. Be genuinely nice. This bunch were grumpy, conceded, and unfriendy."
Pros: "Getting there safe and sound"
Cons: "We didn't fly FinAir, it was American Airlines"
Cons: "It is disgraceful flying such a tight configuration on a transatlantic flight. AA should be ashamed."
Pros: "Got an economy extra seat without upgrading, had a variety of snacks and service extras which were nice"
Cons: "Was never asked for dietary restrictions so no vegetarian meals were available, pretty old aircraft to be flying that route, no seat back entertainment"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
Cons: "No personal screens on each seat-,makes international flight very long."
Cons: "Felt like an old domestic flight. No Wifi and screens in the center that are hard to see from the window seats."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but the aircraft arrived 3 hours late. That’s a long wait."
Pros: "Smooth flight, mostly friendly staff, good food"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with additional leg room and knowing the first row of these is at a wall with no room for feet with legs extended, we requested a different row. We did not get this though we were told we did AND paid for it."
Cons: "2h delay because of technical issues"
Pros: "Took off early; landed early. Helpful crew and a good amount of food and beverages were served."
Cons: "First trip with AerLingus. It was late by 40 minutes. When we finally boarded they made a comment we were right on time when we most definitely were not. Then on the flight the only beverage service was almost non-existent because the flight attendants rush by rather than actually wanting to give anyone a beverage. Several people including me had connecting flights yet no one bothered to help us get to them on time. I barely made it to mine but several people probably did not as we got there 5 minutes before their flights were to take off."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online, then waited in line at the counter for 45 minutes to then be redirected to AirCanada counter, where I then had to walk back and forth across the airport with their representative to have them 'find' my ticket, which was supposedly lost. It would have been nice to be informed via email, which counter I should check in at and also, confirmation that they had my ticket. Fortunately I showed up 3 hours early, because I needed every minute of it."
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and Crew was friendly. The Captain was giving updates when appropriate and even was friendly when the passengers were disembarking. It seems like he really enjoys his job and that made my trip nice. I liked getting the blanket and pillow on every seat. It was very nice not to have to search for them."
Cons: "Didn't have the Air Canada app so couldn't access WiFi to download app for the entertainment. It might be helpful if the airline would tell you ahead of time so you are prepared. Also, no real description of food offerings. Would be helpful if there was a description beside chicken or vegetarian."
Cons: "Poor airflow on plane."
Pros: "This time I got my choice of meal, at least."
Cons: "Rouge's entertainment system is spotty. It's via WiFi and you must have your own device. It didn't work for many on the flight including myself. Also, you need to pay for alcoholic beverages on Rouge's trans Atlantic flights."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Every flight was late. If we didn't have long layovers between flights we would have had problems"
Pros: "Empty seat between us"
Cons: "No movies. Had to load app for entertainment. Then WiFi never worked"
Cons: "No entertainment and poor seat selection process"
Cons: "Flight delayed numerous times due to no crew and then turned around in flight for landing gear malfunction We were not treated very kindly for inconvenience"
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flights"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Pros: "Seats were ok but a bit cold all the way."
Cons: "One hour late leaving, no reason or information given. Food was awful with green sauce on chicken and celery bits in milk for salad, the connecting flight was cancelled and the option was another flight in two days. The only flight going later that evening was full and the next day was full also they said. An hour later a bus service was offered leaving in ten minutes which many of us raced to catch on our own with no one to show us how to get to the bus. The bus we were told to look for was the wrong bus. Of course our luggage didn't make it and that took another hour to register at our destination as every one else on the bus didn't get their luggage either. Bus driver got lost but passengers were able to show him the way. This is the third time in four flights Air Canada has lost our luggage. The worst was the NO ONE ever smiles, we were watching for it, and certainly NO ONE ever says we are sorry you are inconvenienced which would go a long way to make the delays and changes more tolerable."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old, without entertainment. Most of the crew were unenthusiastic. The food was less then average. A very different experience then flying from Toronto to London the week before, so quite disappointing."
Cons: "Rouge legroom has gotten to the point of being dismal. The seats are thin and uncomfortable - don't even try reclining though, or you'll be in the face of the person behind you. I buy flight passes which are good on Air Canada as well but Air Canada has taken away all the non- Rouge flights and I am left with no choice. On a 5pm flight out of Toronto, all the hot food choices were gone by the time they were 8 rows into food and beverage service. I'm seriously thinking of moving my loyalty status to West Jet. If only they had flight passes."
Pros: "Best price , left on time and even arrived early !"
Cons: "Flying is and will always be the worst part of any trip."
Cons: "Seats are so close together. No room. No tvs."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were nice. There were two meals, one would have been fine, but both were great."
Cons: "The check in counter in Dublin was horrendous. I was forced to check a luggage that was my carry-on on the outgoing flight so there was no reason it was not going to fit on the upper compartment, but the counter agent forced me to check it anyway, even with it being under weight limit. The line was huge and there were 5 counter agents, but 3, and at times 4 agents, at a time, were only pulling from the priority boarding line. We had to wait more than one hour to check in. Than to the boarding, the same people from the counter were the boarding agents. The boarding was extremely slow and again unorganized."
Cons: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Cons: "The anxious flight crew. Would like more variety on the player and I shouldn't have to watch a 4 minute commercial after every 20 min episode, especially when it's my own device."
Pros: "While I do just like to have my legs fit in the seat, the room makes for a much nicer seven hour flight. The provided iPad setup is good for entertainment and the good is fine."
Cons: "They boarded early while our connecting flight was late. They told us they could not allow us in even though we arrived 1 hour before. Had to purchase all new tickets."
Pros: "I liked the vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 and a half hours early, and thank goodness: check in took forever and they obviously didn't have enough staff, and never fixed that. Had to rush through everything else. Crew was unhelpful for those of worried about missing our connecting flights since the plane was late: those on board said they had no way to know and to ask the gate agent when we landed, the gate agent scoffed at us saying they had no way to know. I've been on flights where the crew kindly gave out connection information, so this is lazy on Air Canada's part."
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "I liked the gate agents."
Cons: "Where to start? How about, the planes are so old and so poorly maintained that our plane was almost three hours late taking off while they fixed something. At least two other flights from Dublin to Toronto took off around us, but we were never offered to be switched over to other planes so we could make our connecting flights. As a result, a plane full of angry people hassled by a serious lack of customer service focus landed in Toronto and had to, AGAIN, get in a huge line to be processed with all of the missed flights. They knew we were coming--WHY weren't there more preparations made for a much smoother transition?? I hate Air Canada and will never again knowingly book that airline. They need to change out the entire fleet of old, crappy, smelly, falling-apart planes."
Cons: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Pros: "Flight crew were fine. Flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "Flights were all over booked. People were being bumped, flights delayed. We were in the Toronto airport for 8 hours. We missed our connection in Denver. The Air Canada people on Toronto said someone would be waiting to help us get a hotel and a new flight when we reached Denver. In realit, the stewards on the flight just gave us a card with a customer service number, said call this number and they will get you accommodations. So no one was at the gate to meet us and no one ever answered the phone!! We were on hold for 48 minutes. We were stuck in the airport for ten hours, through the night, until another flight could be arranged. We had to find someone on United to get us on a new flight. My daughter and I were at the end of 24 hours of flying and expected that what we were told would be carried out. I was not impressed with the way this was handled and no apology or compensation from Air Canada for the delays and sleeping on the airport floor!!"
Pros: "service was wonderful and I appreciated the assistance in handling my luggage in Dublin"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Friendly employees at each turn"
Cons: "Change food to more palatable. Improve entertainment options to rival Delta and Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Good crew. Spacious seats"
Cons: "Needed the app to watch Player movies which you don't know about until you're onboard and its too late to download the app"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed an hour and half because the plane was having mechanical issues. That caused me to miss our connecting flight. The flight staff was rude and not helpful when I asked a question about my connecting flight. I had a family member who took a day off work and drove three hours from my home to pick me up from the airport. She also had to get a hotel room at her own expense because Air Canada's plane was not up to par. Not only was it an inconvenience to me but to my relative."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Flight got in early which is always nice."
Cons: "Outlets on the plane didn't work so I couldn't keep my phone charged. Kayak sent me an email indicating both my flights were on Air Canada but my flights to and from SFO were on United. I was unable to change my seats online with no explanation."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not overly helpful. There was a nice selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was horrible and made me throw up. The flight was freezing and the seats hardly reclined making it very uncomfortable. Especially since we were on the plane an extra 2 hours from a delay. The flight delay caused me to miss my connection flight. And then I wasn't put on the next available one, I had to wait around in the airport for a very long time, 4 hours to fly home. My baggage was lost. And my credit card was charged twice for my checked bag. The customer service employees in the airport refused to help me with either issues. I am extremely unsatisfied with my experience on Air Canada and will never be flying with it again."
Cons: "We were stranded on the plane for 4 hours in Dublin without ever moving, they had to many checked bags and it took them that long to figure it out, there was no food and we had hungry kids, they would not allow us to de plane..... It was very frustrating. We are still in route and plan on arriving at our destination 20 hours late, they have no options available to get us home sooner"
Pros: "The crew was nice look above. Cramped seating, bad food and no inflight entertainment unless you download their app."
Pros: "Good food for transatlantic flight"
Cons: "The headline says it all. Even though our bags met the carry-on size conditions, we were told we must check them because they were overweight. We've never had them weighed before, including the Air Canada trip to Dublin from the states. "It's ok, they'll be there when you get there." We've been home about 24 hours and they haven't located the bags yet, so no word on when they will be sent to us. Very poor online and phone customer service."
Cons: "Flight to Columbus cancelled....cheap vouchers for meals"
Cons: "No screen to watch movies, had to download their app to watch anything on my phone, which I was not made aware of beforehand."
Pros: "Schedule ok"
Cons: "Pitch was miserable Attendant said bit was a low cost carrier so no tv in seat We are over 6 feet so never again"
Pros: "The only positive was the initial price, but even after opting for a price increase to lessen travel time failed with the delays and flight changes."
Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were either delayed, changed, boarding radically changed. An attendant actually had the audacity to sarcastically ask who I was voting for (president) once he new I was American. The customer service rep in Toronto further blamed us for not checking flights 48 hrs in advance, although I checked in 20 hrs earlier and received false flight info. The crew also stated in flight "that those continuing on the the USA, did NOT have to complete customs declaration forms" ....WRONG!"
Pros: "The crew was really great"
Cons: "No tvs, which I had on my connecting flight for each individual seat and then the 7hoir flight didn't have any? Also not having individual air control is very claustrophobic! Thank goodness I paid extra for premium seating, but the lady I sat next to said she didn't pay any extra :| also the seat in front of me where I had to place my bag had a bar under it so my bag didn't fit correctly"
Cons: "The crew stayed at the back of the plane and we could clearly hear them talking about things other than work. Meanwhile they could have been providing a bit more service to the passengers."
Pros: "Non stop. Easy boarding and de-planing. Good food"
Cons: "I am claustrophobic and the only opportunity I had to select a seat was when I checked in 24 hrs before the flight. The only aisle seat left was in the back row of the plane. Between the person in front of me fully reclining their seat and my inability to fully recline my own seat (airplane design) and with pepole standing in the aisles waiting for the toilets - I was very uncomfortable for most of the flight. United also had problems with their entertainment system so for an 8 hour long flight, there was much room for improvement."
Pros: "Flight delayed overnight, no compensation from United as no crew available after weather delay"
Cons: "United would not give any compensation for overnight delays as a disabled person very uncomfortable trip"
Pros: "On time even with minor delay in boarding"
Cons: "I was not on this flight because my previous United flight was late! So I am having to sit all from 8:00 am till 8:25 pm in the airport. I am not happy."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I had plenty of leg room in Economy Plus."
Cons: "Too many crying babies and children. (Flights need a section for young children and infants.) I can handle a 2 hour flight, but not 7+ hours of constant noise) The chicken curry rice was not cooked all the way and the food was lukewarm."
Pros: "We had the most wonderful, friendly crew ever! They came around with good and drink many, many times! Such a pleasant and enjoyable experience!"
Pros: "I was impressed by the food. Tasty and plenty of tea and coffee."
Cons: "They made a big deal at the gate about downloading the United App to be able to watch free movies. The WiFi didn’t work at all for me and others near me. I did see a couple of people watching movies, so it’s possible some folks were able to get a good connection. Good thing I had my kindle! Also, my bag and the bags of a few other people didn’t come through after UA22. There was a woman working at the computer at baggage claim #5 (I didn’t get her name) who called and radioed people regarding our missing luggage. It eventually showed up, but we were all getting very nervous because of the long delay. Thanks to that woman, it all turned out fine."
Pros: "My flight on another airline cancelled -- I rescheduled on a later flight with United but arrived at the airport in time to catch an earlier flight that had been delayed. United allowed me to move to the earlier flight without any penalties in recognition of all that was going on. Thanks."
Cons: "Delayed an hour on mechanical problems..but free movies and TV provided to help ease pain"
Cons: "Baggage did not make the connecting flight. Their baggage service is poor. Didn’t receive my 2 bags until 10:30pm the next day."
Pros: "Great selection of movies; on time departure and arrival much appreciated."
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "No delay, not crowded"
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was close to that of a freezer. Very cold for some unusual reason. Otherwise a great flight -- on time departure and arrival -"
Pros: "Liked excellent food and beverage service by courteous and attentive crew. Flight was listed as serving only snacks so was surprised to be served an excellent Asian Noodle and Steak Salad and continuous beverage service. Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again. I had unsatisfactory experience with United last year and saw great improvement."
Cons: "I would have preferred not having to travel to Newark to get Florida flight since Newark Airport was crowded and boarding experience took too long."
Cons: "I will not pay extra to access any in-flight entertainment on a flight. I prefer Air Canada's free in-flight screen access wirh unlimited movies available."
Cons: "I was on a flight that had tvs in the headrest and had to pay to use the entertainment. Last united flight I was on before that I was able to watch free movies on my laptop. That was much better because I could select what I wanted also without paying for it."
Pros: "quick boaeding"
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Always a cramped flight, miracle there was overhead room for my bag."
Pros: "Boarding was great and the in flight food and beverages were great. The choice of entertainment was awesome."

Cons: "No good snacks no entertainment. Boarding was awkward."
Pros: "Nice and smooth flight"
Cons: "No free entertainment and paid checked baggage but at reasonable cost"
Cons: "without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight."
Pros: "entertainment and food"
Pros: "More legroom than previous flight on B737."
Cons: "Why would you pay to watch anything? We don't care for Direct TV. Just give us something to watch w/o paying."
Cons: "The food was not really edible on this flight. The seats are also quite uncomfortable- I'm not a particularly large person, and yet they were uncomfortably stiff."
Pros: "good food, free beer, good seat back screens"
Cons: "757s are cramped for a transatlantic flight"
Pros: "coffee was good"
Cons: "Only got to serve it once due to turbulence"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed a very long time!"
Pros: "The United site suggested to arrive 1 hour prior; however, I came within seconds of missing this flight because of the lines at security."
Cons: "Security lines"
Pros: "Really efficient ground crew in Dublin who walked through the line at Dublin with ipads scanning passports and explaining that we would be going through customs in Dublin. food was decent, wine and beer were complimentary on the flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system had issues, son's seat had no window cover"
Pros: "How the flight attendance was pleasant"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The seating was very good and so was the flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The way they board the plane is rediciulous, this 1-5 boarding process is horrible."
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight with a window seat which I prefer. Service was extremely good from checkin to boarding to the onboard crew who looked after us well the whole flight. I actually thought all the food options were very tasty and portions acceptable. We even got in half an hour earlier which was a bonus."
Cons: "The trip to Dublin two weeks or so before was not as comfortable as I was assigned a seat in the very last row on the aisle which meant that even if I was able to fall asleep, I would have been jostled repeatedly by people using the lavatories in the back of the plane. Also those seats do not fully recline and if they are going to charge more for other seats in the plane, then they should be charging less for those seats which offer less space and on the aisles, unintended bumping by fellow passengers walking through tight aisles."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!"
Pros: "The crew was so pleasant and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
Pros: "On Time, polite smiling crew, happy passengers, overall excellent."
