We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"

Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."

Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "First time traveling with my dog and it went well."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Pros: "I was bumped to an earlier flight after asking 'cause my original flight was delayed."
Cons: "Again we boarded and because LGA was going to be full, we had to sit in the plane in Toronto for an hour. If you just let us stay in the terminal at least we can be more comfortable. Why is this allowed? It’s unacceptable"

Cons: "Air Canada was the only airline flying to ny that was delayed."
Pros: "Everything went as expected"
Cons: "Long time till take off"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."

Cons: "sitting in the middle seat unless you pay extra"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Montreal for about an hour."

Cons: "Delayed as always"
Cons: "Gate change but no announcement"
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Plane was old"
Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."
Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."
Cons: "Never again"
Cons: "Declined !!!! So long"
Cons: "Delay was not explained, gate change was not communicated. Poor communication overall."

Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Cons: "extreme delays and not a lot of updates"
Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "We set on the runway for over 4 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, boarding could have been delayed to avoid sitting on the tarmac for such a long period of time in the plane. That is EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE for travellers. If Air Canada knows the departure will be delayed, boarding of the aircraft should be delayed"
Pros: "On time, quick boarding, has an app, online checkin worked"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't working"
Pros: "Everything fine"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Did not really like it."

Cons: "They had no room for my carry on, I had to place it under my seat making my legs very comfortable."
Pros: "Every body was moving in order and fast"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "Very delayed"
Cons: "Old plane----moldy and smelly."
Pros: "The pilots explained why we were delayed and everything."
Cons: "I can't wait until LGA is done with it's renovations. It's kind of a dumpy airport"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfortable seating"
Pros: "I liked that they thought that tic tacs is a solution to a 14 hour delay. Screw you, United."
Cons: "Since I missed this connecting flight by 8 hours, the best united could guarantee was a flight 2 DAYS LATER. I had to sleep at the airport. No food vouchers, no compensation. Waited in Uniteds line for 3 hours just to talk to someone. They lost my luggage which I had PAID to check; it was sent to the wrong airport. They guanteed luggage delivery by Thursday night. It arrived Saturday morning at 3am."
Cons: "delays... not flying united again"
Cons: "Omaha United personnel"
Pros: "I liked that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "The snacks that was given"
Cons: "There was a delay leaving and while we was in the air."
Cons: "Delays, no tv, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and quick."
Cons: "My seat was slightly dirty. No choice for a snack, which wasn't very good."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Pros: "Excellent and content flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The one pro is that the flight wasn't packed so many people were able to have a row to themselves, however the actual seats weren't the most comfortable it was an older model plane."
Cons: "Three hours of delays, two after the plane had already boarded. Once the flight crew knew we were grounded and not moving, we should have been informed exactly how long we'd be on the ground for, instead of lied to every 15 minutes for two hours straight. Absolutely no compensation or accountability for getting us to our destination much later than projected."
Pros: "Poor Manuel"
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating. Fell straight to sleep"
Cons: "Everything went well"
Pros: "Pretzels is not enough I pay a lot to travel"
Pros: "I landed safely"

Cons: "Lost my bag."
Pros: "That I got home safe"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "Captain personally kept us updated on the situation concerning the delay due to mechanical problems"
Cons: "Reassurance about what would happen if a replacement aircraft could not be found should be provided up front."
Cons: "The fact that it hasn't left yet and it won't leave until 8pm."
Pros: "Everything ran on time"
Cons: "Would love healthier snacks"
Pros: "Boarding was a mess..."
Cons: "The delays"
Cons: "Nearly everything.....won't even consider united again"
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "We got to New York thank god"
Cons: "Delay over 1hour and half"
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Pros: "You guys are awesome. Thank you for cheap tickets you provide to us all the time. Keep it up."
