Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The airline lost both of my luggage suitcases."
Cons: "Entertainment worked sporadically"
Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."
Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The food was awful and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "Over all everything was great, except the bags check in"
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "Very helpful cabin crew and did well to communicate in English to me. Flight was on time and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted as it did not work Small screen handset was not working for the entire flight food selection was not as big as KLM or China Eastern Bathroom on board was smaller than KLM or China Eastern which meant changing into more comfortable clothing for the night flight"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Cons: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"
Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Cons: "only there were del;ay at JFK"
Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "food was good, leg room was decent for economy"
Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room, we were able to have a window seat which was great for my sister since before we didn't have the window seat option. The snack was good also."
Cons: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was ok - don't know why my vegi meal didn't have cheese and dairy in it, would have made if better. Boarding was ridiculous long line. Could have been more efficient"
Pros: "there were problems getting the tickets issued in Rome. the worker at checkin kept us for 20 minutes without telling us what was going on. the flight left the gate on time, but then we sat for an hr before leaving. no information was given as to why the flight attendants were rude. after landing we sat for an hr on the runway waiting for a gate to be available."
Cons: "They overcrowded a flight in the middle of a global pandemic which shows they do NOT prioritize the health and safety of their customers."
Pros: "Love this airport. It’s clean and comfortable!"
Cons: "I had been told there was a restaurant and there was one tiny coffee bar with little to no food. Most likely covid related but still probably one of the best airports I’ve been to"
Cons: "Flight attendant crushed my backpack"
Pros: "that we were able to depart before the airport curfew kept us from leaving since the plane was so late"
Cons: "the flight crew was late getting in from another flight which risked flight cancellation due to airport curfew. This is the second time in 3 years that I've had this experience with United."
Cons: "The remote on the arm rests werent working correctly for the inflight entertainment. My menu button didn't work. It was stuck on ESPN. The armrest is really an awkward set up. I don't want to keep shifting and possibly nudging my neighbor. Wish they touch screen like Delta, American, Air Canada,etc."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Cons: "The upgrade standby list was never cleared. My production assistant was number 1 in line for an upgrade and didn’t get it because someone at DEN forgot to do their job."
Pros: "Overall uneventful flight"
Cons: "My seat's audio jack didn't work"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Cons: "We had a particularly grumpy flight attendant that made the experience less enjoyable for many. Also, while it was a “Lufthansa” flight, it was really operated by United and did not offer the level of service or politeness that we experienced on our Lufthansa flight from Denver to Frankfurt."
Pros: "Comfort of first class. Even on a short trip like this."
Cons: "I am a bit tired of a lazy, lackadaisical attitude by ground crew and pilots. Nobody is showing interest in making the system work better by hustling. They take their time, almost slothlike, with an air of arrogance that tells me that they don’t respect me. It appears in how long it takes to pull a plane in, how long it takes to get bags off, and how long it takes for bags to hit the baggage claim."
Pros: "Free streaming IFE is nice. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "3 independent instrument failures made us 2 hours late and I missed my connection."
Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"
Pros: "First time didn’t sit on runway. Landed early"
Pros: "Repairs caused a long delay, they kept us informed but it was a hurry up and wait forever"
Cons: "Long delays in both trips. 6 hours stuck in Munich & 24 hours in Luxembourg. Asked to get on earlier flight-was told not possible even though 27 seats open. Not possible to check in online and chose seats."
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Crew very friendly. Tony plane"
Cons: "the costumer service at the Newark Airport, was bad."
Pros: "Food was good, inflight service was good, easy boarding and deboarding. lot's of space for luggage."
Cons: "too cold!!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we didn't find out until we all boarded and then we all had to get off and re board about 15 minutes later. Some missed connecting flights. Seems like they need to work on communication."
Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, ruining my trip."
Cons: "Noisy intrusive kids-clueless parents no help from crew"
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Cons: "Not a fan of the snack"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"
Pros: "The seating seemed a bit more spacious~very much appreciated!"
Pros: "The staff was always very helpful. I carry a saxophone and everyone was always very open to accommodating me, which I really appreciate! Also, great legroom, great pilots, positive attitude."
Cons: "The added fees for food and beverage were a little tough. I would understand if the flights were shorter, however we had several-hour delays in a time period from lunch through the middle of the night, and were not offered any sort of voucher or food item. Then my bag got lost (which I understand with the weather issues that caused delays), but it left me in a city with no clothes, very hungry, in an hour past public transportation hours. Which is not THEIR problem, but I would have definitely appreciated some assistance of some sort."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Service and comfortable seat"
Cons: "100 dollar baggage fee"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant under the adverse situation"
Pros: "United service is awful."
Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"
Cons: "You will be seeing a formal compliant and expect a refund. We will not be using Kayak again."

Cons: "Seating is just cramped!"
Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and seemed to have a bit more room. The staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was 2hrs delayed but that was due to weather. The food was over priced and not good."
Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for mechanical reasons... Almost missed my connection in San Francisco. My bag got lost."
Pros: "departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "cost was high person next to me on the way there was rather large and made my trip uncomfortable - not trying to be mean just being honest"
Pros: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. And the wine was good."
Cons: "I paid for 2 round trip tickets and because my son was not there for the first leg, they resold the seat. So they got my money and the other person's money for the same seat. I wanted both seats and paid for both seats. It is theft and should not be allowed. The flight attendant was extremely rude and dismissive. It is a poor practice. You could have at least asked first before rebooking the seat. At least have offered compensation or something. I probably would have said yes Anyway. It's the principle of the process being wrong to the consumer which only benefits the corporation."
Pros: "On board device entertainment."
Cons: "Lack of seat space in the back, have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "I like the friendliness of the crew and trying to do the best to make our flight comfortable as possible. The plane was very big&nice. By S.K"
Cons: "I didn't like that i didn't have much leg room &scrunched in a three seater.And my ride home was a lil bumpy i guess due to the weather."
