Pros: "Seat average for a small jet"
Cons: "The AC was not cool enough, but tolerable"
Cons: "It was great! Nice job Delta !"
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Cons: "The check process was ridiculous. There not enough room in the box for me to explain my experience but the ticket agent lied to me, said he couldn't take my bag until I got a paper receipt and boarding pass from a kiosk despite having had pre-paid for my bag and digital boarding pass. 25 mins wasted"

Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"

Cons: "They made me shove my purse into my knapsack to fit within their two bag policy. That's a first for me. My Delta flight did not do that."
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
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: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I feel comfortable flying when I can see out the window so don't force me to close my window shade.The flight attendants kept forcing me to close my shade. Also new planes would be nice. Sick of flying on outdated technology."
Pros: "Seat room was better on most economy flights. The food was good and the glass of champagne did not hurt at all. The aircraft flew very smoothly from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"

Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "Wheel chair service at LAX is run by the airport. Their priority is to get you to your flight, not to a VIP room regardless of how early you check in."
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "The food was great. Very filling and hot foods were hot and cooked thoroughly. For our 8 hour flight we were served 2 meals and snacks and plenty of hot drinks which was nice.The entertainment was great got to watch movies and play games and also learn language through games."
Cons: "It was very hot in there probably hotter than it should be. Not much air flow I was sweating the whole flight. Because of this I couldn't sleep it was kinda miserable not gonna lie."
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pros: "nice crew; excellent check in experience!"
Cons: "boarding in Riyadh is always a nightmare. and as many have noted, the seats are too close for the average size of many boarding in Riyadh"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Pros: "The flight went smoothly from boarding to landing. The crew was helpful, kind, & courteous. I would definitely fly Air France again. Online check-in was also easy to follow and complete."
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Ground service at check-in was very poor: Misinformation and failure to provide a level of service that other SkyMiles partners provide for Gold level traveler."
Pros: "The airplane was new, good food and service."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"
Pros: "The aircrew are very friendly. The staff at CDG were very helpfull with our connecting flight."
Cons: "The seats are very cramped for tall people, especially when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clear information about the delay"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process at CDG and my seat was broken"
Pros: "Super comfortable even in coach (upstairs). I was impressed with service and quantity and quality of food. Would be pleased to fly them again."
Cons: "Seat did not recline as much as normal aircraft."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Pros: "Courtesy staff excellent!"
Cons: "Console for gaming poked guy in front. Needed joystick"
Pros: "Boarding and such was straightforward and easy"
Cons: "Everything is uncomfortable"
Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew and the online check in."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight and the luggage was on transferred on our next conncection :("
Pros: "Our flight from Prague to Paris was on time, very comfortable and inexpensive. Crew members were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food was unexpectedly bad and both meals were cold"
Cons: "My luggage was not placed in the plane therefore leaving me without luggage."
Pros: "We were delayed on our second flight from Paris to Bucarest, so we ended up missing our connection to Timisoara. We ended up spending the night in Bucharest, but it was very nice of Tarom to get us a room and food vouchers, plus free transportation to the hotel and back. We traveled with 2 young kids and this made the 30 some hours of traveling more bearable."
Cons: "They should have had more people at the airport dealing with all the people that missed their connection, instead of just one cranky person( at the Bucharest airport)."
Pros: "Proffesional and courteous"
Cons: "I was quite satisfied"
Pros: "Females flight attendance were mean , rude and careless. Our seats were dirty and the trays from the seats were disgusting, the seat in front to me was damage so the lady in front to me got me stock on my seat for the whole trip, i asked crew if thry can tell her to move lil forward cuz i needed to get up to bathroom after 5 hrs in a plane , flight attendanr say : no, try to jump"...the food was disgusting, chicken with God knows what it looks like vomit. Everything in that flight was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendance services, food, seats and tables were dirty with stains etc."
Pros: "Really friendly service, both on the ground and in the air"
Pros: "The in-flight meal was very good. The flight was much quicker then I expected, but there a lot of turbulence for much of the flight. Most of the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "We were put in the last row of seats, which don't recline, though the row in front of you reclines into you and you are trapped. One of the flight attendants was rude when we were trying to deal with our child who had vomited. CDG (Charles DeGaulle airport) is poorly laid out and poorly run, in my opinion, starting with the landing of our flight. After waiting over a half an hour after landing to de-board, we were given much information In trying to get to the proper places to check certain baggage items, and we walked up and down and around a whole terminal trying to get to the proper gait. This is not the first time I've had a bad experience at this airport. Thankfully, the flight itself after that horrendous experience was good."
Pros: "Air France is always a great experience-Sure wish they would restart their nonstop service from Orlando to Paris or partner with a discount carrier to code share service."
Cons: "That i had to go through Air France for my luggage problem which was really not their fault, it was Condor/Thomas Cook who created the problem."
Pros: "Decent food, polite crew. All you can ask for such a short flight."
Cons: "No entertainment, but for such a short flight that's not such a problem. Seat pitch is a bit tight."
Cons: "The delay was ridiculous. Seats are the usual tiny ones so for a big guy they suck but over all great trip"
Pros: "The 777 is excellent. Service very friendly. Food is good. One leg flight is super good"
Cons: "Apparently the pilots are allowed to smoke on these long flights. In this trip it was not bad but on previous flights it was really bad"
Pros: "Boarding nice and efficient"
Cons: "Breakfast options a bit limited"
Pros: "Both going and returning flights left and arrived on time. The crew were good. Boarding and unloading went fast and efficiently and bags arrived fairly quickly and not damaged."
Cons: "The rouge entertainment system didn’t work. It seems like it’s old technology that was used when only some passengers used it. Now every seat has a device trying to log in. System just can’t support the high volumn of use. It worked on the return flight but most passengers were sleeping."
Cons: "Sound system on the in-flight movie was horrible. Headphones didn't work in the jack, static obscured the sound. Tried different headphones but had the same result. Not too much of a problem. Flight was short and wouldn't have had time to watch the full movie anyway. Everything else was great. Staff was amazing. Seats were comfortable. Boarding was fairly quick."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Flight took too long - missed my connection. Also a flight attendant wouldn’t let me use my Bluetooth headphones - she wouldn’t even let me use them while turned off as noise dampeners."
Pros: "We have been using Premium Economy on various airlines I’ve the last several years for our frequent travel between the USA and destinations in Europe and Asia. The Air Canada experience was one of the very best (along with Lufthansa). The entertainment system was superior, food was great, service was attentive and comfort was as anticipated. The availability of power for iPads and computers was more than sufficient. I’m sure that a lot of the satisfaction came from flying on a Dreamliner but Air Canada is still at the top in our minds (and future plans)."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that the cabin was quite cold on our return trip. I could have been better prepared myself so I need to take most of the blame. The cabin crew did take steps to adjust the temperature but it would be unreasonable to expect the aircraft to meet the comfort expectations of every passenger. Next time I will just bring a light weight hoodie."
Cons: "It was good"
Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."
Pros: "The movies on board"
Cons: "The fact the plane was late"
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was excellent, comfort in premium class was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment, choice very limited, bring your own. Space for carry on luggage limited. They should not allow passengers to have more than 1 carry on."
Pros: "Crew was ok, entertainment was great"
Cons: "Seats in ac 787 are very soft, you will feel the knees of the passenger seating behind you, I couldn't fall a sleep, you feel a kick every time the passenger behind you moved his knees. Kosher food was terrible! Not eatible! Plane is very slow l, took 11.5 hours instead of 10 hours with the 747."
Cons: "Too short period between 2 flights, barely have time to pass the border, almost miss the next flight. No inventory of food."
Pros: "The leg room in basic economy was great -- especially compared to other airlines. In seat entertainment was free."
Cons: "No complimentary snack on a five-hour flight. Food was available for fee. Entertainment movie/TV programming was limited (not live television)."
Cons: "Too long to board and a little disorganized at boarding"
Pros: "I can't fault Air Canada Cabin crew - they are absolutely wonderful. I had a situation with a woman who decided she wanted to take my window seat and the cabin crew was amazing with how they handled the situation. They are always so friendly, attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt airport was God Awful. The supervisor there was so rude to people, treating us all like cattle. The boarding process was unorganized, confusing, we were getting conflicting instructions from staff and then verbally abused by the supervisor there."
Pros: "Food and cocktails included alongwith entertainment"
Cons: "Hour late .. departure delayed ..pilots caught in traffic"
Pros: "I have limited mobility and I was very well taken care of by the crew."
Cons: "flught was fine."
Cons: "The temperature control system was broken so the cabin temperature was upwards of 90F for the entire flight. The flight crew wouldn't acknowledge the issue until we had landed."
Cons: "Terrible costumer service in toronto. Rude and yelling to people. 4 hours waiting on the line."
Pros: "The entertainment on the air Canada app had good selection bjt i couldn't vet it to play after selecting tv, I movie, or podcast. There was no in flight movie to choose from either."
Cons: "I was so cold the entire flight from Vancouver to Toronto. The woman in the row ahead of me kept telling the flight attendant that it was too cold. He brushed her off saying that they turned up the temperature. What, 0.1 degree? This is the only night flight I've ever been on where they didn't distribute blankets. It was a miserable night."
Pros: "we sat on the airplane for over 3 hrs , waiting for someone to clean the waste water from the plane.! it was very alarming the lack of service , never seen anything like that before !"
Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."
Cons: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."
Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Cons: "The plane was too old Did not prepare enough food No free snacks"
Pros: "Ok so I download the app and horrible content. Not alot of options and then you have to rent an iPad? They should b giving.those.out free"
Pros: "The Crew was the best people ever"
Cons: "Not about the flight but about the Kayak service, I bought the ensurance but it didnt let me change my flight anyway"
Pros: "Air Canada is the worst, another late flight, mechanical problem and missed my connection to Calgary. I made it, but my bag didn't so they wouldn't let me on the plane."
Cons: "Please see my other comments in the first box. Over the last 5 flights to Calgary, I have been late 3 times by more than an hour, missed my connection and they have lost my bags twice. Both times I was on the plan and my bag wasn't? How can they can send me on my flight without my bags, yet, they screwed up and I get there on time without my bags and they will not let me on the plane."
Cons: "Every air Canada flight I had on this trip had horrible turbulence and rough landings. The turbulence may or may not be the pilot's fault, but the landings are probably the pilot's fault. Also, the in-flight movie selection was horrible, probably due to the fact that they had so many Canadian films (which apparently is required in Canada)."
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "Plane was super old...peeling paint, barely any full size luggage space, no in flight tv and always late or delayed. 4/4 flights we took were delayed. This airline is the worst and were terrible at keeping us updated on delays or cancellations."
Cons: "Lost my bag, I had to wait an hour and a half and missed a meeting."
Cons: "They over sold the flight and we couldn't board the plane."
Pros: "Seated in business class"
Cons: "No notification of cancelled flights. Inaccurate information provided at airport. Entire flight told to go home and return next day.waited on phone for customer service for 1 hr and in line at airport for 1 1/2 hrs. Eventually flights took off and successfully travelled standby contrary to agents instructions."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Cons: "No good movies or music"
Cons: "Not serving a meal on a 5 1/2 hour transcontinental flight is unacceptable. Just because you can get away with it doesn't make it good policy."
Cons: "1. Flight left late. 2. After landing sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for gate. 3. After arriving at gate, had to wait 15 minutes to open door. 4. Poor service assisting me to get to connecting flight on other side of airport."
Pros: "The boarding process was extremely fast."
Cons: "Total lack of entertainment, out dated plane"
Pros: "Staff friendly. Food and drinks good. Good variety of entertainment"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Pros: "Staff are wonderful."
Cons: "Not comfortable compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The food was not that great. Very less in quantity. Vey low quality. Even Chinese airlines offers better food while traveling from Vancouver to Beijing. The airlines should improve their food services."
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "Entertainment was on point"
Cons: "Check in procedure"

Cons: "I understand budget constraints but the food was mediocre. Can someone relook at choices."

Pros: "Airplane, staff,"
Cons: "Meal. Options contain a high amount of cheese and all in my family are lactose intolerant. So a long trip with only drinks"
Pros: "Good plane good entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Attendants could not put could together. I bought business ckass tickets to my daughter and her husbandfie their honeymoon. They could not use the business lounge: when they arrived they were told that they needed to wait in front of the boarding gate. They waited two hours asking many times why they could not get their seats. They were ordered to stand by and wait to be called. Finally they insisted and they got two sits but not side by side. It was too late to use the business class lounge. What a shame. Food was so basic. Noodles overcooked with few veggies that all. Cabin attendants we're stressed and rude"
Pros: "The process of boarding seemed very organized compared to other flights . The staff was friendly"
Cons: "I wish they had a different type of water but overall it was a good flight"
Cons: "Food was inedible. Both of us got sick on the plane."
Pros: "Check in and boarding went very smoothly. The crew was very attentive. They came through the cabin several times with the drink cart. And after dinner was served, gave everyone a bottle of water. Good choice of movies, food was good and the light breakfast was actually very filling. Excellent croissants. Overall great flight."
Cons: "Long flight but that is to be expected"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had on a plane. Entertainment and internet down for half the flight after a delay at the airport for maintenance. Finally had United app. No free WiFi."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Cons: "I was exiting your airplane bathroom and my wife was entering when the flight attendant placed her arm in front of my wife and said, “I’m sorry but I’m working so that means I have dibs on this bathroom.” She then entered the bathroom and shut the door on my wife’s face. I was furious and speechless to witness such frank rude behavior and horrible customer service. I would like to think that United Airlines prides itself on better customer service than this. My wife and I have other choices when we fly and we will certainly think twice before we fly United Airlines again."
Pros: "You’re entertainment options far exceed your competitors. The food (vegetarian) was excellent."
Pros: "service was very good...food and drink was good....lay flat seats are marvelous for a nice restful flight....flight left SFO early and reached CDG early. all around outstanding job for United.... as footnote, the fare we found on Kayak was really unbeatable...."
Cons: "this flight was all good!!"
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hour delay, missed connection, customer service was a great distance from the gate and gave no explanations for the repeated delays, no apologies, seriously overpriced legroom seat, nothing but stress."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Left an hour late and cabin lights were broken. They did offer some token of appreciation although not sure what it is yet"
Pros: "Very helpful accommodating wife with wheelchair. Thank you."
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Check in via kiosk was difficult for me, a senior citizen. Entertainment was very limited."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Bathroom was dirty"
Cons: "It was a mess. 5 hour delay. No re-booking. A complete sh*t show. No way to change this thing, as you guys are peddling overpriced consolidator tickets. A mess. Will probably NEVER book via KaiYak again. Horrible."
Pros: "Departure from Newark was delayed but the man at the desk, an entertaining guy, kept us informed."
Cons: "I wish my plane was on time and we didn't have to board twice! I wish you would refund my missed train ticket and $100 taxi ride that occurred because of the delay!"
Pros: "Accommodated me with a hote and food voucher"
Cons: "Had to stay overnight, 6 am flight the next day is delayed. Still haven't left original airport."
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: "I don't love to fly, so I wasn't thrilled about a 7 hour flight. Actually, the flight itself went well, good food (for an airplane), staff was VERY nice, and boarding was easy enough. My issue unfortunately the people sitting behind me with 2 kids under age 3-4 years old. One of the kids screamed and cried for probably close to 5 hours. I didn't sleep at all. At one point, he cried for a continuous 2 hours while he kicked my seat. I felt like the staff should have asked if they could help, maybe suggest walking him around, etc. The child must have had ear pain, he cried constantly. I felt so badly for him."
Pros: "The econmy class seat was just fine for a cross atlantic flight from Chicago to Paris and I am almost 60! Good entertainment and service. Seats were comfortable. Language was not a barrier. Good value because it was non-stop and a no hassle plane changing circus! Thanks."
Cons: "Food was airline style and could have used some fresh fruits and bakery goods. But overall it was very passable."
Pros: "Nice vegetarian meal option. Good food and service overall."
Cons: "It wasn't a Lufthansa flight. Both our connecting and international flights were United. We specifically bought the ticket because we have had excellent exeriences on Lufthansa. We were dissapointed to find out we were actually flying United. Entertainment system was down so there were no movies the entire way and we were seated in an exit row where the seats did not recline. Extra leg space was nice but I would have declined the seat if I had know the chair wouln't recline."
Pros: "boarding, flight attendant very nice"
Cons: "narrow seat, small aircraft"
Pros: "Nothing except when it was over."
Cons: "Two aborted takeoffs. Four plus hour delay. Missing all my connections. Wine dumped on me. Insufficient food vouchers. The absolute worst customer service trying to receive compensation."
Cons: "I asked the service attendant when I checked my lagage to change my seat to an aile seat. Even though there weren't anybody awaiting in line she could not be bothered, she got rid of me and asked me to do that at the gatw. By the time the gate opened there weren't any ailel seats. The service people are trained to be rude and treat all passagers as slaves. I would not fly United if I will have a different opinion."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Entertainment; only 2 lavatories for approximately 40 business class passengers"
Pros: "Seats are very narrow."
Pros: "My last flight to Europe was on Lufthansa and I have to say, this was better. Decent food, efficient staff, relatively comfortable plane."
Cons: "They were a bit brusque, but not rude."
Pros: "Did a good job of keeping us hydrated during the flight"
Cons: "The seltzer water is plain not lemon flavored as advertised in the magazine"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Plane was small for a2:55 flight"
Cons: "I made cost effective arrangements to fly with a friend at the same flight of United. We checked in together but unfortunately we were given seperate seats. The staff in the plane were completely ignorant and not helpful AT ALL. I am very disappointed and definitely will prefer another airline in the future"
Pros: "It was uneventful during the flight."
Cons: "It was very late due to weather in Chicago so we missed our train in Paris. But otherwise great flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants provided great service - really made an effort."
Cons: "Pilot inability/unwillinngess to explain reason for 1 hour 45 minute delay departing SFO. Mechanical problem, disclosed just 30-45 minutes after take-off necessiated unplanned landing in Chicago, where we waited another 2 hours before finally taking off to Paris."
Pros: "Steward was nice."
Cons: "To little of a plane for the flight"
Pros: "Ease of check in with a stream line flow"
Cons: "the TSA check a bit delaying but okay over all"
Cons: "Delayed 5 time and change plane 3 times"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable and nice this plane was. I had only ever flown United (see my below comment about codesharing) domestic, and the planes had always been old and kind of cramped. This international flight was much nicer!"
Cons: "I didn't like that this flight was code shared. I paid a bit more to fly Lufthansa, but disn't realize that it was going to be a United flight. I also thought the captain could have given a bit more information and updates during the flight."
Pros: "Normal things"
Cons: "Making us wait for 3 hours to take off. Did not offer anything in denver."
Pros: "Staff gave our toddler some milk, which was nice."
Cons: "They did not turn off the lights until 1am, and then there were some lights on next to us that we're on all night. With the dramatic time change- we would have preferred some earlier and better darkness"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."
Pros: "The mango sorbet"
Pros: "Food and in flight service"
Pros: "Pilot was very nice!! Co-pilot too!!!"
Pros: "UP TO THE MARK I EXPECTED"
Cons: "A PILLOW WOULD BE GOOD, MAKING THE FLIGHT MORE COMFORTABLE"
Pros: "Smooth flying so got some sleep"
Cons: "Clearer back-to-front boarding process"
Cons: "The app and trying to find boarding details prior."
Pros: "This flight was eventually cancelled and the rating is solely on the ground experience. EuroWings could not have done anything worse. The process took from 10:30am upon arrival in Dusseldorf til 11:00pm when we were told the counter closed at 10pm and nothing could be done till next day."
Cons: "Have representatives on the ground and make public announcements about the progress, next steps, help offered and steps that need to be taken. The info was sparse and had to be gotten on an individual basis. Nothing was coordinated or communicated and every step had to be done WITHOUT HELP."
Pros: "Get down"
Cons: "Everything and the crew more friendly."
Pros: "On board service and entertainment. The plane itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in process was slow and inefficient. One of our bags was routed on another flight (we’re still waiting for it). Ridiculous amount charged for chech in luggage for an international flight!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Connecting gate was on the other side of the airport. We were running from one side of the airport to another. They should have provided a shuttle service for all of those passengers."
Cons: "Delays is Boarding No food and beverages"
Pros: "There's nothing much to like. You're lucky if you have a nice crew which was the case. It's extremely expensive for a low-cost airline who pretends to be a full service airlines because they have a "business class" cabin. Seats are ok. Same as LH or LX"
Cons: "Be like Swiss or Lufthansa. Charge less and give free water and snacks"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Brand new airplane and service was excellent. Bathrooms were kept clean."
Cons: "Bus navette between thé flights"
Pros: "Made up tons of time en route."
Cons: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Pros: "3-3-3 layout in economy on the United 777 I was on meant I wasn't cramped for space. WiFi worked well for a significant amount of the time I used it."
Cons: "Food was typical economy class fare."
Pros: "The plane was clean and seats were comfortable considering 2.5. hour flight; all crew members were nice and friendly; there was some food available for purchase but we didn't buy it since we ate at the airport before the flight. I would definitely fly again."
Cons: "no TV or other entertainment options so make sure to bring your own device or a book."
Pros: "The crew at the gate as well as in the plane were tu nice and helpful."
Cons: "Juste the toilet were not so clean and smelled very bad."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Cons: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Edficient boarding and pleasant onboard service"
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane and limited movies"
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my connecting flight being delayed for 3+ hours (not sure)."
Pros: "As if our flight from Washington to Brussels was not delayed enough, the flight segment to Accra from Brussels was delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Almost everything about the trip was impacted one way or the other. Our luggage/bags were partially damaged too, but I decided not to lodge an official complaint."
Pros: "Quick, easy, friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment but it was a short flight"
Pros: "it was just perfect, no complain"
Pros: "I found that the meal served was of particularly good quality and tasty"
Pros: "Easy to cancel Trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have a system of knowing that I cancelled the flights"
Pros: "Nice planes"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I still haven't received it"
Pros: "Love that there's space for the economy and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "There was nothing to do and would be nice if it had wifi"
Pros: "They tried and succeeded in making flying as enjoyable and comfortable as it can be these days in economy class. Plenty of legroom. I would absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "Really, really bad food. Also, the selection of movies could have been better. Most of the foreign films did not have English subtitles."
Pros: "Due to horrendous traffic we got to the airport after check-in but before the plane took off, but they would not let us board and would not allow us to transfer tickets for even any fee. They will not let us use our return tickets either. Is this how you do business? I'm totally disheartened and disgusted by the lack of customer service or even care."
Cons: "We missed.our flight and no one would work with us to reschedule or refund even a partial refund. We missed out flight due to terrible traffic and now we are out $2500 this is terrible."
Pros: "Every person was friendly."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour."
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Cons: "Very poor service at brussels airport. It took 15 minutes to connect the bridge and evenually we had to go down the stairs to take a bus that also took 15 min to start. We also left late frm malpensa due to late check-in but i thin rhe plane actually camw in late too."
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Pros: "The space between the seats was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at al, no charger for the phone, nothing to drink unless payed! Not even water!! They were 1,5 h late"
Pros: "The seats were great, we were seated in an exit row, so loads of legroom, we are tall so this is very important. Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No fault of the airlines, but I was seated next to a very large family with little kids and a baby. I'm usually pretty tolerant, but the back of my seat was kicked for 8 hours and the kids kept running right in front of me causing me to constantly move my legs. Ugh. Food was ok, nothing special, it edible."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flights were uneventful. Enjoyed the ability to watch a movie on the little TV that each seat had. Made the long flight feel much quicker."
Cons: "On my flight from Dulles to Brussels, the seat cushion was pretty much worn out. Felt like I was sitting on concrete. My butt was pretty sore after the flight. Flight back was totally fine. But it was a small inconvenience. Everything else was great."
Pros: "Fast Boarding"
Cons: "Was waiting for a lagguage over 30min at Tegel airport"
Pros: "Alles goed"
Cons: "The delay (due to weather) that caused me to miss the connection."
Pros: "Crew was vey professional. Arrival in Rome was to a gate rather than a bus, which was unusual but nice. Baggage delivery was also surprisingly quick for Rome. The Brussels Airlines lounge in Brussels airport is fantastic!"
Cons: "The flight departure was delayed 1 1/2 hours, meaning we arrived in Rome at nearly midnight. No complimentary drinks on board. As a Star Alliance Gold member, I chose Brussels Airlines out of loyalty. But the cheap approach to customer care means I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Pros: "The extra leg room was very much worth it! Did the trip both ways. On the way to Europe we went standard economy and economy plus on the way home -- economy plus was much more comfortable over the long duration of the flight"
Cons: "The food remains mediocre at best in the economy cabin."
Pros: "Tons of food"
Cons: "Terrible in flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "I bought my flight 2 months before, and at the gate I was told I'm on stand by, after the check in agent already took my bag, and without any explanation. No one could tell me WHY I was all of a suddent on standby. The answer I got was "I don't know, that's just how it is in the system". Completely unacceptable and against airline policy. I will be filing an official complaint with Brussels Airlines."
Cons: "We found the crew to be abrupt in manner on both flights."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "It was a short flight, so it was appropriate."
Cons: "No free food and no entertainment. Boarded late."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have received complimentary water, coffee, or a bag of pretzels on this flight. We didn't receive anything or we had to pay for a bottle of water. First flight I have experienced like that."
Pros: "Due to my husbands frequent flyer status, we were able to upgrade coach seats to premium free of charge - which afforded priority boarding and more comfortable seats - although, there was not much difference in legroom or general space. This flight was not full, so I had an empty seat next to me - always a good thing on a long flight. Lots of movies and entertainment available to fill up the hours. Served food and drinks constantly (3 meals plus, if I remember correctly) but the food was pretty bad. One of the bathrooms was a generous size, which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They separated out groups but did not make clear where each group was to go, which caused unnecessary jam ups. Stewardess on this flight that served my section was rather grumpy and unhelpful. Seat in front of me was broken so it leaned way back into my lap, making it difficult to eat or read on my e-reader. I had a premium seat, but there did not seem to be any difference in leg room or the size of the seat than normal coach. Although there was several meals - the food was horrible. Best to take your own aboard. We were delayed getting off the ground, having to sit on the plane for a while before take off. We landed over an hour late."
Pros: "The entertainment system is great and they provide a lot of food. The crew is very available and efficient."
Cons: "We had delays in Brussels because of a communication issue and because we were waiting on a vehicle to help us push off from the gate, which was a bit odd. The movie selection was good but a little outdated."
Cons: "The connecting flight was an hour late. We set inside the plane all this time while the crew could not decide what to do with luggage of a passenger who never showed up. The luggage was being removed and put back -and repeat several more time of the same- for a bit more than an hour. When we finally took off, there was an unpleasant surprise - we had to purchase our food. I had never had this experience before that we would not be offered food on a connecting flight and obviously was not prepared. Not only there was not food, or even a tiny snack offered, one had to buy mere water. Overall, very disappointed. BTW, our flight was not even on display anywhere at the Brussels airport, wrong gates were shown in our tickets and we almost missed boarding..."
Pros: "As far as flying goes the crew where very professional, pleasant and helpful. Honestly, I did not interact with them much but they seemed to all get along well and do their work happily and efficiently. They managed a large multi cultural flight well which is likely no easy job!"
Cons: "Seats: Why is that head rest attachment on the seat? It's AWFUL! It forces your neck in a very bad position. You have to be tall to use it properly. There should be a way to remove it for those of us too short to use it as it was meant to be used. The food on this flight was not the worst I have ever had but it certainly was not goo either. Two rice dishes...why? Boarding seemed to be slow and a bit unorganized. Why not board by seat zones?"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. There could have been more (or better) movie options."
