Top 4 airlines serving Leipzig/Halle to Washington
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew, food, and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service in Istanbul was tribble . No help at all with any kinds of questions and issues. The airport staff were unbelievably rude and non responsive, as if they were there to turn off the passengers. Will never travel with any airlines that has to stop in Turkey"
Pros: "Friendly airlines and service was excellent."
Cons: "No anything"
Cons: "The food wasnt good"
Pros: "The Knowledge that I would never fly Turkish airline again"
Cons: "Cancelled flights without contacting me Delayed takeoff for 9 hours. Took off knowing they would not be able to land in Istanbul and dropped us off in Izmir Did not cover the cost of food at the hotel in Izmir. Took us to a hotel over an hour away from the airport"
Pros: "We had a great flight other than the uncomfortable seats. The food was outstanding and the staff the staff was very accommodating. I was glad I was able to charge phone/tablet on the plane"
Cons: "My seat didn't lay back, which made it was difficult to sleep. The seats are too close and generally uncomfortable. I just wish we could have toured Istanbul since we had a long lay-over. Took forever to find out where the tour was only to find out we needed Visas. The airport staff was not helpful. The bus tour is promoted on their website, and it sounded like it was easily accessed as soon as we were off our flight from Johannesburg. Not so."
Pros: "Everything was great. Would never fly another airline if Turkish was available."
Cons: "You must hear this all the time. An eleven hour flight is torture. Maybe a little more padding in the seat cushions. Still, You Are GREAT"
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."
Pros: "Food / service / timeliness"
Pros: "Adjustable headrests, excellent crew service, good food, good price."
Cons: "Confusing security gate access at Ataturk airport, tight seat space for a long flight (not enough legroom)."
Pros: "From the first person I met (the man who printed my boarding pass at the counter) to the crew on board each flight, I was very impressed with the people at Turkish Airlines :) Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and made my trip enjoyable."
Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"
Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option! Amazing staff!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "I enjoyed receiving food on the flight with real silverware, a warm roll and friendly service. Having a choice of entertainment was also nice. Best of all, I like the fact that the airlines offers a guided tour of Istanbul in English during a layover there; I only wish I'd read that in the in-flight magazine before going off on my own to sightsee."
Cons: "I didn't like the multiple screenings to get on the plane, but suspect that was more a decision of the airport than the airlines. Being singled out for extra screening wasn't my favorite either!"
Pros: "I do not like anything"
Cons: "They serve Turkish delight half of them get half not including me When I ask he told me you are sleeping .the time they serve she was air hostess how he can told I was sleeping point to be noted. Same thing they serve pouches I do not get.i will never fly this air line SOHAIL"
Pros: "For a long flight, most were able to sleep. The crew was very busy during the first couple hours and also very present. Movie choices were wonderful. I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me although when the man in front of me reclined, his head was practically in my lap."
Cons: "After first service, the crew disappeared. I get very thirsty and was in need of water more often than they were willing to pass it out. I did not go to galley to request additional water, which likely would have been provided! Passengers made a MESS in aisles & lavs, which was not picked up thru the flight."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. I was traveling wit my 2-year old and they brought him a little Batman vs Superman bag with an inflatable airplane, airplane binoculars, and slap on watch. They also brought him an activity book. I thought this was a lovely touch that helped keep my child entertained on our long flight. Adults also received a goody bag with grippy socks, slippers, eye mask, lip balm, toothbrush with toothpaste, and ear plugs. It was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Someone was escorted off our plane when our flight landed for unknown reasons. This was the day after the terrorist attacks in Belgium at the airport and metro, and the crew asked the person being escorted off the plane if he had taken all of his bags. If this person was a terrorist, do you really think he would just tell you if he left a bag of explosives on board?"
Pros: "The dinner was good but they ran out of chicken immediately so there was only beef. Meal service is very slow and it takes them on average an hour to take the trays away. The lemonade is very good"
Cons: "No leg room. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "All of the above , on this flight. it was just as expected and better. Thank you. Thought you might want to know my opinion of our flight from Washington to Istanbul on Jan.27.2016, it was the worst flight on any airline we had before. The crew was unprofessional at best, no one knew his or hers duty. the most was the cook who took the orders for food and 2 hours later came to apologize that he did not have the food or that the food was ruined. It was like a joke all along the flight. I hope the at crew do not work for your company anymore."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The flight was long and the comfort somewhat limited. I was expecting that and I was not disappointed. However, when we reached IAD, the customs check was very quick and the luggage was already there. A very good ending to an arduous trip. Entertainment was first rate and the food prepared with some degree of skill."
Cons: "flight crew did not make much of an effort to secure my purchases from the duty free store. The items never made it and refund had to be issued. Not their fault, but no real effort to contact the store and have the items brought to me...... my fault really,,,, otherwise I would recommend this airline to anyone flying overseas."
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "I Am like The Service"
Cons: "I Am like everithiry the service and food"
Pros: "Usb charging, entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken dishes- only had beef to offer. Seats were slightly uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly/smiley."
Pros: "Loved the food service."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot? How do they work like that? I'm surprised the flight attendants didn't get heat stroke. Anyway, I suppose its cultural as I noticed a lot of places overly heated in turkey."
Pros: "Food and drink made two long trips very comfortable."
Cons: "My trip originated at Ivato airport in Antananarivo, where even with only one checked bag weighing 12 kg, and the proper carry on, I was harassed for bribes. An hour after clearing security, I was called down to the baggage area, where after emptying my 12 kg bag, "national police" lost my transit tag for final destination in US. Turkish Air employees made the extra effort to print out a new one, but I was asked for "gifts" or "rhum" by 3 different Ivato police, baggage boys, etc."
Pros: "Staff was welcoming, accommodating and very courteous. The seats were comfortable and they had a great selection of movies to keep me occupied on 2 overnight 8 and 10 hour flights. Food was good too!"
Pros: "food good, lots of selections. liked the movies/tv shows. seats were fine, not too much wiggle room but okay crew was great. very attentive and helpful. no attitude like you get on domestic type US flights"
Cons: "too much lemon smell in bathroom."
Pros: "Good service on board."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Not comfortable"
Cons: "food and entertainment package was not at all good. co-passenger drinks heavily and makes me uncomfortable as she was totally unbalance"
Cons: "no leg room entertainment was lacking..."
Pros: "When they did speak clear English they shouted at passengers to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "Counter people at Turkish airlines in Istanbul told us to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. Food was excellent and very little turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "We missed the flight due to Turkish airline airport staff being incompetent. Flight was delayed to 4 pm from 12:35 the day before and we did not leave until closer to 6 or 7 pm. I would not recommend flying into Istanbul as the airport seems to be very disorganized, and might not totally be the fault of the airline. We waited for 3 hours to get new boarding passes for a new flight and then after waiting 3 more hours in the hotel line, Turkish airlines said "we are out of hotels" and left a large number of customers stranded at the airport. When trying to get reimbursed for the hotel, the staff at the airport was clueless. I won't be flying Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "By far Turkish Airlines has the least amount of leg room available on an international flight (coach class) that I've ever traveled . . . and I'm saying that as a career pilot. If you are over 6' tall, you will be in agony on any flight that crosses the pond (I traveled on their Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 . . . same story). My tailbone was pegged to the back of my seat, yet my knees were still smooshed into the seat in front of me. I was absolutely miserable. I ended up standing in the back next to the toilets for over 2.5 hours of the 10 hour flight because that was more comfortable than sitting in this cattle car."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals and the service,"
Cons: "The zipper in my new suitcase was broken at the IAD airport."
Pros: "Great hot meals and in-flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Best of the best so far!"
Pros: "I didn't like there service b/c they weren't helpful at all. Also I had my baby with me and they didn't give her anything to play with as usually airlines do."
Pros: "Wifi on some flights"
Pros: "from the people in the airport to the air crew, they provide a great service! further than any other airline. I have fly twice with them and is always a pleasure."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No wifi on the plane"
Pros: "Amazing service Great Food Best attutude in the sky (flight attendants)"

Cons: "Crew was not so friendly"
Pros: "Seats were TOO close, my knees were jammed into a seat back for 11 hours and the people next to me were incorigable."

Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Hours of flight"
Pros: "The flat bed"
Cons: "The Captain made loud announcements waking you up"
Pros: "usb Power"
Cons: "The seat padding needs to be improved."
Pros: "Good service on the plane, the food was good and the seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit uncomfortable at the Lisbon airport. The space provided at the gate for the passengers to wait was small, with everyone trying to fit in front of the gate, it was tight."
Pros: "Crew was great and seats had footrests."
Cons: "Very old plane with outdated entertainment system and no power outlets. Had to take bus to plane, we repeatedly lined up for boarding only to have our flight delayed again and again."
Pros: "Quick. Smooth!"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "The process for getting ready to board was a little chaotic"
Cons: "Boarding process was in fact dangerous, with people corralled into small spaces without letting them out on the other end. We felt claustrophobic, crushed, and at one point people were even having to jump over the escalator to the bus loading area because there was too much crowding. Dangerous"
Pros: "Nothing, I tried to cancel the reservation 3 days after I made it and couldn’t even get a percentage back. What a waste."
Cons: "Let me cancel the flight for a percentage back so I didn’t have to waste the entire price of the flight for a ticket I couldn’t use."
Cons: "They turned the air conditioner to a higher temp to accommodate a few complaints and the rest of us suffered. First and cabin crew had it at a refreshing temp . For the last 20 minutes of the flight they turned it down again. To late"
Cons: "Coordination between connection flight"
Cons: "I was surprised by a $120 fee for luggage. I don't remember any indication from Kayak or from TAP about a luggage fee when I booked or when I got confirmation. Further, I found out that if I had indicated that I had luggage 3 days prior to checkin, I would have only been charged $92 saving me $."
Pros: "Better system to boarding."
Cons: "Announce properly for boarding."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Boarding slightly convoluted but ok"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "We had to pay extra for checked baggage which were not aware of earlier. The counter person told us we could have saved if we purchased it earlier online and would have saved us 15 euros per person"
Pros: "Plane newish"
Cons: "No pillows. No blankets. No boarding drink. No hanging of coats. Food bad. No entertainment"
Cons: "Some of the worst customer service, seats that do not recline at all, minimum leg room, and worst of all a 2 hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight for which they took NO responsibility stating that they can have delays for up to 3 hours without having to compensate anyone."
Cons: "The marked delay"
Pros: "The fact that I made my flight."
Cons: "In incompetence of the clerk that checked me in, and the fact that I was thrice charged for my bag, because he didn’t know how to use the computer."
Pros: "great seats, great egg tarts and easy check in"
Pros: "Prompt and courteous"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, just not enough space al the way around to be comfortable."
Pros: "Luggage was delivered, although very slow to arrive at carrousel"
Cons: "Luggage fees were excessively higher. Paid €75 per checked in bag one way! This was because our tickets were “on sale” and didn’t include any checked in baggage."
Cons: "They had us inside the airplane for 1.5 hours. We understand there was a bad weather but we could get on board when they are ready to depart. It is not nice to be 1.5 hours plus 8 hours traveling"
Pros: "Excellent attention by the crew and the food."
Pros: "The hospitality was perfect"
Pros: "Nice and clean aircraft, snack on the way to Lisbon"
Cons: "Cramped seats (very),"
Cons: "They gave someone else seats I had reserved for 6 months and that I had paid extra for. I will take that up with the company forewidth"
Cons: "The worst airline"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "I got to Lisbon on time."
Cons: "just another bus ride"
Pros: "Easy mobile check in process,"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Honestly I didn't like anything because before I boarded , I was charged for all my luggage . They said that tap changed there policy , how I suppose to know ? Why didn't it say anything while purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "I was charged for my 3 luggage . It's not fair . I still have the invoice , before ibbook the ticket it said that you get free luggage ."
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."
Pros: "Great service on board, very attentive crew. Great food (Yes, it was good), modern aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Terminal could be easier and simpler. They told us to set up lines way before the actual call."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The airplane was clean, there is a lot of space between seats, the seats are confortable and each seat has a computer screen so you can play games, watch movies, news. Etc. The airplane is a brand new airbus."
Cons: "Airplane should have more bathrooms."
Cons: "Smooth flight food pilotes"
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Kept switching gates"
Pros: "Exceptional service and professionalism of crew. Food was delicious...Aircraft was clean. Left on time...landed half hour early. It was a perfect flight."
Cons: "My husbands snoring. LOL."
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."
Pros: "Once we were boarded, everything went fairly smoothly. The cabin staff are not rude, however they are just there to serve food and drinks, and are totally uninvolved and unwilling to enforce any rules."
Cons: "TAP is notorious for delaying departures, and both times I have flown with them, the flights have been delayed at least an hour. Their boarding procedure is also unorganized and often frustrating. The food is terrible. Don't eat the beef stew with Madeira sauce. It's like dog food."
Pros: "Nothing was to like."
Cons: "The men who were working the boarding were absolute brutes. Rude, hostile, completely unprofessional. Treated many people horribly and then acted smugly upon boarding."
Pros: "Ask persons for veg or non veg snacks before u served please."
Cons: "Sandwich served was a bit bleak but it was served with a glass of wine!"
Pros: "The best thing was the attention and kindness of the crew on board: Excellent! Although I do have some complaints, I would say Tap is a quite good airline that should improve some aspects."
Cons: "The boarding in Lisbon was not efficient. It took a lot of time to get people on the plane and the land personnel in charge were not nice at all. I would even say very bad humoured! Plus the majority of passengers were kept standing for a very long time before entering the lounge at the gate because even though it was full of empty seats we were not allowed to enter the area. The food was not good and the entertainment system on board needs a refreshment to modernise it."
Pros: "New airplane, spacious legroom, usb and power outlet"
Pros: "Boarding process went well. Aircraft was nice up to par with other national airlines. The entertainment system was a little outdated but still worked."
Cons: "Crew just disappears after Takeoff and Serving meals. They take a long time to come when you call them. Food was horrible gave me stomach problems in the air. I had an emergency exit seat which is nice cause I had the extra leg room until some guy seated on the Flight Attendant seat I had in from of me. When I asked why this happened they said he was an airline employee and he was entitle to seat there, so I paid extra for nothing."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fabulous on this flight."
Cons: "Older plane that showed lots of grime from past travelers. The seats in my row had old spills that seemed to have run down the backs of the seats and dried over. Gross!"
Cons: "There were delays (3 times)"
Pros: "They got me home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3 times with no explanation. The food in the gate was trash . After boarding we waited on board for over a hour before take off , during which time someone was duct taping the inside of the plane together and I sat on a broken seat . The single flight attendant refused to take trash from people who didn’t finish their beverage . While the plane was reversing there was a huge bang and the plane shook as if we hit something . I observed gate agent repeatedly tell customers that she couldn’t help them find out if their flight was delayed and to just look at the computer board ."
Pros: "Seats were rather comfy, food was good for an airplane, staff was great."
Cons: "Having to go through security twice, but that is not the Irline’s fault."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants (potentially a French Canadian or maybe just plain French) was amongst the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life. She was a little mean, but I'm willing to let it slide. In fact, I'm willing to let a lot of the negative things about the flight slide because of her (sorry, got to give credit where credit is due)."
Cons: "Got diarrhea from the waffles. The seats did not recline. No entertainment, but hey, this flight was damn cheap so I'm not complaining! Also, see positives."
Pros: "AC 018 takes the shortest route from Shanghai to Montreal. The check in and boarding were like a breeze. Cabin was clean, staff were amiable and hard working. The variety of drinks were plenty, the food matched the standard of cost efficiency flight ticket so how could you complain it? On board TV/Movie has new coming features such as HBO's Game of The Thorne, season 7. It was a comfortable and pleasant journey with the team of AC 018. Merci beaucoup!"
Pros: "The vegan meal was tasty"
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. My partner’s entertainment screen would not work so I was not in a position to use mine. Air Canada doesn’t understand vegan. Offered us egg and cheese for a snack. Typical air travel. Long live the train."
Pros: "Boarding process."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Pros: "Pearson Airport puts the puddle jumper flights at the far, far, far end of the airport. That makes some sense."
Cons: "There's only one choice for refreshments, unless you count the cracker-amd-nuts machine. The seats are terrible. The assumption seems to be that no one waits long, but the experience proves the opposite, as wind, construction, security clearance for flight crews and who knows what else (any excuse will do) creates delays of more than an hour for people who end up standing along the walls and sitting on the floor waiting. Again, crews and ground staff for AC are not able to give accurate instructions or guidance for boarding flights. That airport is a mess."
Cons: "My Original flight was cancelled 3 hours prior to departure. Had to wait long lines at Air Canada customer service. Due to slowness of process, was not able to take other departing flights to other close airports. Had to stay the night at hotel."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "The flight attendant helped me find my gate which wad nice seeing I didn't have a long layover."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, flight was delayed, in the back row so couldn't recline seat, sat right next to bathroom, and the only attendant was busy all it took a long time to get her attention."
Cons: "Hour late departure. Old people travel to Sarasota, AC should consider that in boarding."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Good service hassle free"
Cons: "Flight was from FLL to YUL."
Cons: "We had to purchase food ."
Pros: "When we departed from Vancouver to Tokyo, we were pleasantly surprised by how courteous the airport staff and flight crew was, and by how roomy the seats were. Food wasn't outstanding, but better than other airlines we've been on for similar flights."
Cons: "Two of our three bags did not make it onto the plane, and the staff at Tokyo Narita, while apologetic, were not helpful. We had to press hard to get our bags back the next evening, instead of 2 days later. The onus was placed on us to keep receipts for replacement items that needed to be purchased in the interim, as well as to make the claim for reparation money on our return. Not even a complementary toiletry kit was offered, despite the fact that I reiterated that I had literally no clothes or toiletries at all in the one bag that arrived. Crew on our return flight was borderline rude, did not seem to take any care at all wheeling heavy carts down the aisles while people slept on a transpacific flight, banged them into my daughter many times."
Cons: "Misinformation and poor scheduling caused us to miss connecting flights both ways! Luggage was delayed for 2 days. Flights were late and cramped. I had to buy one way ticket on another airline or be stuck in Montreal for 3 days."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Passengers over a certain size should get two seats or the airline should install special seats for them. Why I or anyone else should have to endure being crammed in next to someone exceeding his seat size is indefensible."
Cons: "On both outbound and inbound trips (connecting with international flights) the flight was late. Both times the door was closed and then they informed us of the delay. I understand that smaller planes often get bumped, but on the outbound leg, a 20 minute delay on the tarmac and then not allowing us to deplane for another 15 minutes meant I missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight crew and helpful. Always had a smile."
Cons: "The boarding process at the gate. There were 8 or 9 gates crammed into a small section of the airport. Literally packed in like cattle and getting to the gate for departure was a nightmare, people had to shove and push through the crowd. Not a good experience!"
Cons: "One one if the kegs from Barcelona and return (through Montreal) there were no individual movies/ music available unless you purchased an IPad rental for $10. If they don't have entertainmentvon in the seat ahead a longer flight they should not charge for a device to watch it!!"
Pros: "it is on time no hassle every things is smooth"
Pros: "People that helped us were personable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 and then 50 minutes. No announcements were made, the screen just changed. I'm glad I went up to ask about my connecting flight to Athens; if I had waited and got on the flight, I would have missed my connection. The people at the AirCanada desk were nice, and were able to find us other seats. However, we were promised seats on the 7:30 flight, but instead were put on the 5:45 flight. We asked for the AirCanada person to call back and change our flight, but she said we would have time (at this point, 1 hour and 20 minutes before the flight left), even though I showed her that there was a lot of traffic between LGA and JFK and we probably would not make it. We had to leave LGA, find our bags and wait in a long taxi line to sit in traffic in a cab we had to pay for our of pocket, and could not make the 5:45 flight. I then had to call AirCanada and wait for 15 minutes for the lady to switch us to the 7:30 flight. In all, we also lost 2 full hours in Athens."
Pros: "None I like"
Cons: "Crew - no one onboard seemed happy, didn't see anyone smile at all, not a happy place. Food - tasteless, for the only meal they offered transatlantic flight was total thumbs down."
Cons: "Canada Airlines lost my luggage and I still don't have it."
Cons: "Delayed 2h"
Pros: "the flight actually went"
Cons: "our gate was switched and then there were no updates until after the original boarding time passed"
Pros: "Tickets are cheap"
Cons: "Poor food, rude crews, small seats"
Pros: "I liked the service. I dont like flying much but the stewdardes made me feel comfortable so it was a good flight"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."
Cons: "My luggage got lost. That happens sometimes. It showed up in NY after 2 days, but did not arrive at my house until FIVE days later. And even then, the delivery company contracted by air canada would not bring it to my front door, so I had to leave my building to go meet them. With small kids in the house and being home alWhy is this my responsibility?"
Pros: "staff is still largely your best feature..."
Cons: "i seriously miss not getting a real meal especially when I travel a long distance... these pay as you go meal packs really are not attractive and not tasty... surely you can organize a full meal like we used to have even if we have to preorder it and pay for it... everything just feels like a shabby cash grab... and the tv/movie screens are subject to malfunction... tapes get off tracked and make the viewing anything impossible as you can't hear the soundtrack..."
Cons: "Flight delayed more than 3.5 hours, first due to scheduling issues and then due to weather. Checked bags were left outside in pouring rain throughout delay, staff unable/unwilling to cover or move them. Not given food vouchers or any other compensation during wait, everything in the terminal closed before departure anyway. Gate changed 4 times, terminal was sweltering, like waiting in a greenhouse. Awful."
Pros: "Nothing about the airline ."
Cons: "At the bwi airport they have to agent u can talk to except u have to wait when they are boarding a flight before u can see someone at the front desk . Lost my bag and even the airport police said it's a normal thing as they get complains every day . Called a million times and they still won't give me detail info. I classify them as the worst airline I've ever used in my 30th ears of travel and if they are the only airline on earth I rather never travel"
Pros: "Decent movie and game selections."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."
Cons: "They sell special headphones so you cannot watch moviescwith out paying. And food is for sale as well, even on a 5 hour much delayed, international flight."
Cons: "Super late and made me nearly miss my connection. Really poor communication. I may never fly with Air Canada again, I would've rather flown with a more expensive airline that I knew I could trust. It will take a lot to convince me to ever fly AC again."
Pros: "As opposed to my flight from Tokyo to Toronto, the return leg from Toronto to Baltimore had only one exception, which was that the flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "From boarding (everything was late, from departure to arrival), to how the baggage carousel announcement was wrong, and up to the bus that will take us back to the parking (all the other buses: Amtrak/Marc, Long Term A, Daily Parking, Express Parking came and went for about 4 times or more but none came for Long Term B, you can see all the frustration from the other waiting passengers, including us). A lot of improvements needed from BWI airport if they want to retain their customers."
Cons: "The seats in coach were ridiculously close together. When the person in front of me reclined their seat, there couldn't have been more than 6 inches between them and my nose. Felt like Spirit Air had purchased Air Canada."
Cons: "I took the same route with west jet the prior week. Same price. Maybe a bit cheaper even. Seats were far more generous. I used to always take air canada. Now if it is s rouge flight I look at all other alternatives first before having to settle for rouge. Terrible airline."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Cons: "Didn't take this flight die to missed connection."
Cons: "The flight attendant call bell and the overhead lighting controls are on the touch-screen. However, there are also buttons on the arm rests. What a pain! I alone must have generated 3 or 4 flight attendant false alarms by leaning on the arm rest. Other passengers did the same. Lights were going on and off, bells chimed each time someone leaned on the buttons. How stupid an oversight. I hope the aircraft's great safety systems they talk about during the pre-flight briefing are better thought out!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent and friendly and made this short flight more pleasant."
Cons: "We missed this flight due to poor planning on Air Canada's part. Then the rescheduled flight was cancelled due to weather, and then Air Canada tried to refuse to pay for our hotel expenses. We should never have missed the first flight to begin with! When we finally got on our plane two days late, I found that the seats could not fit an average sized person comfortably. My neighbors elbow was in my chest the whole time and my seat was completely broken. The entire seat actually fell off of the chair multiple times during this very short flight. Most uncomfortable flight I have ever experienced."
Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "flight was delaye and I almost missed my flight from Dulles to munich"
Cons: "It took an hour and 20 minutes to get our bags from baggage claim which is ridiculous"
Pros: "Extra legroom"
Cons: "No free entertainment options"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Leg room is non existent, overweight crew kept smashing into me literally every time they'd walk by"
Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "On time. Enough space ."
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Cons: "Delays no good..."
Pros: "Crew were nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't know i needed an app before i will be able to enjoy entertainment on board, so i had to pay for internet to be able to download the app to be able to watch movie. PA system wasn't gud."
Pros: "The London based crew: attentive, kind, relaxed, sympathetic and very professional in a relaxed fashion."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the rest adequate. Since all airlines cahoot to have same prices the choice for the passenger is quality and United does not offer a great deal on that subject."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
Pros: "The email updates on flight gates."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Cons: "The plane operated from LV to Washington smelled like urine. Yak! The plane from Washington to Vienna: Food - nothing special. The new touch screan tv's are great to watch but terrible to feel. The person sitting behind me kept hitting buttons for 7 hours, so i didn't get any sleep at all. I was furious!!!! And exhauated. Will not fly with these airlines again nor will reccomend."
Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Pros: "Both flights were great! They left on time, the one from San Diego left earlier than scheduled. Kayak was most informative with flight info and upon arrival, indicating the bagage claim number via email!"
Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."
Pros: "Short flight, really appreciated the cups of water that were offered."
Pros: "El sistema de entretenimiento. Optimo"
Cons: "Bumped my head getting into the seat!!!!! The coffee machine was broken hence there was no coffee - this was a 10 am flight and the choice was a cool drink - Very poor."
Pros: "Like other airlines, United is charging more fees for seats to food. And the food they sell is bad. The breakfast was microwaved to horification. Why are airlines permited to give such low levels of service? Why are they allowed to charge extra fees for ordinary seats? And no complimentary entertainment. All that NOTHING" service and for very high fees.I got suckered into paying a lot extra for premium Economy. The Premium was the extra money they stole. The Economy was the new definition of bare bones."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about the flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."
Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"
