Cons: "THE LATE HAPPENED FROM MONTREAL TO TORONTO 1:30 HOURS WITHOUT CUP OF WATER WAITING IN THE PLANE"
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Flight was 30 min delayed . When we landed, the jetway was someone mispositioned and it took even longer to get us off the plane - nearly 1 hour late. Missed my dinner appointment as a result and generally bad start to my trip to Munich . Very disappointed ."
Cons: "S7 asked for additional "fees" to cover flight expenses. They have charged extra for carry on luggage of 2,000 roubles. It was mentioned that it was international flight but they have refused to honor those rules. I have used the same bag on other airlines and did not have any problems."
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by 50 min reason was because the flight crew was stuck in a traffic jam from kiev city centre to airport by 1h. the flight crew stayed overnight in Kiev city centre which is 30-40 min drive away from city centre and had time to own accord to have a walk around the city centre in the morning. So I wonder why the crew cannot travel earlier to airport taking into account potential traffic jams. Knowingly I trvaelled to the airport about 2.5h before departure and made it perfectly on time to the airport, even though working in the morning, whereas the crew couldnt make it. maybe Lufthansa should change their crew hotel policy in particular for towns with notorious traffic jams like Kiev.."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."
Pros: "nice personality"
Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"
Cons: "The seats are even smaller than the ones on small planes; Almost impossible to move even though i'm not a big person by any means;"

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Cons: "Flight didn't even come and was treated like trash at the airport i stayed 10 hours for nothing but to be told to go home thats all we have to say to you very terrible"
Pros: "Great crew, food was good, smooth flight, enough leg room."
Pros: "comfortable plane and seats, good pilot"
Cons: "the crew should have handed out sanitizing wipes as you entered and told people who were not covering their noses with their masks that it was required - Per United rules and regulations."
Pros: "The crew, the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Comfort in the seat."
Pros: "The crew Friday, July 26, 2019as terrible. Not friendly. I felt like we were an inconvenience to them. No one smiled."
Cons: "Friendlier crew."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived on time even though there was a mechanical delay."
Cons: "The seat was awful. Boarding was disorganized. Luggage retrieval was awful. They closed the ramp for a long time and then didn't communicate."
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft !!"
Cons: "I couldn’t get my aisle seat & missing my Hindi movies.."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."
Pros: "The flight was late and barely made the connecting flight. In the end, my luggage arrived damaged."
Pros: "No delays or cancellations occured!"
Cons: "Plane space for feet is terrible. I'm a small person and it is crammed, very uncomfortable seats. Also, electrical outlets didn't work most of the time"
Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."
Pros: "Th Roland was very good as was the entertainment from BOS to SFO, but may as good from SFO TO OGG. They plane was older smaller and the entertainment ability was lacking from SFO TO E"
Cons: "The maple crisps were excellent from BOS to SFO. The pretzels were boring from SFO to BOS."
Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."
Pros: "The cabin crew was horrible. When serving refreshments during the flight, I was ignored repeatedly when I asked for a soda. My wife sitting next to me, and the other passenger on our row were served. I asked the flight attendant 5 times for a drink and never received it."
Cons: "fire the flight attendant, and find somebody who cares for their customers."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"
Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times"
Pros: "The plane took of and arrived safely and on time. The entertainment was decent."
Cons: "1/2 bag of pretzels for a ~6 hour flight? Are you kidding me! The whole ride was sweltering hot. United flight attendants almost universally hate their jobs and they let it show. The entertainment system takes up half of the room under the seat, as if things weren’t cramped enough already."
Pros: "The pilots were informative with their announcements and we were informed of turbulence before it started. We also got in ahead of schedule. I also appreciated being able to ask for a glass of water between services as I had fallen asleep."
Cons: "The negative experiences started before we got on the plane. Boarding began slightly behind schedule and was very disorganized. People were all standing in the boarding area and out into the walkway for the concourse. I feel it would be better to have boarding groups come up individually or two at a time. (While group one boards, group two convenes. Once group one has boarded, invite group three to take their place.) Once group three had boarded, an announcement was made that there was no overhead bin space availble for the entirety of group 4. It seems a bit ridiculous that nearly half the plane wouldn’t have overhead space. It took awhile to board group 4 as everyone had luggage to check and once we finally got down the jetway, we had to wait another few minutes before being able to get to our seats as the flight attendant for first class insisted on taking drink orders while she stood in the aisle. I understand this is a perk of first class but I feel it could be better executed. These seats are boarded in group one so to have drink orders incomplete by the time group four is trying to board is irritating at best and incompetent at worst. Once finally at our seats, it became apparent that the announcement about lack of overhead bin space had been made a bit early. The bins were on the full side but they definitely had space available. Also, much of the space had been taken up by jackets and bags that would have fit under the seats; which I felt could have prevented nearly all of the checked bags. The flight was uneventful with minor annoyances like having to pay for entertainment and any sort of food. Even southwest provides entertainment free of charge and I consider them to be more of a budget airline. If I fly Lufthansa again, I will not take a domestic flight through United and will instead book via southwest to and from the international airport Lufthansa flies out of."
Cons: "Lady sitting behind me lit a cigarette on the tarmac"
Cons: "Not being able to request a seat on the aisle."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Seats were old and comfy"
Cons: "Food was bad, wifi didn't work and entertainment was on the shared screens, instead of in the seat backs"
Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."
Pros: "Flight was light in passengers with lots of empty seats in each row. Better immigration/security process in FRANKFURT compared to previous years"
Cons: "Old aircraft, the seats in premium economy are uncomfortable and not as much leg room as other European carriers. Only WiFi entertainment available. Unfortunately my suitcase was broken in and a power supply and a mouse were stolen. Did not discover until I came home ."
Cons: "It landed"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so got to sit w/o middle seat psgr."
Cons: "UA app for in flight movie kept losing contact or sound."
Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."
Cons: "Seats felt like lawn chairs. Horribly uncomfortable flt Over booked Flt by 3 passengers. Finally gave one family $3,600 to not fly. Maintenance delay multiple times"
Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "Everything was great travel was a brezs"
Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."
Cons: "Two delays"
Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"
Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."
Cons: "Flight cancelled at last minute because of "lack of available crew"."
Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."
Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"
Cons: "Not enough overhead storage"
Pros: "The on board crew did a good job but didn't have much to offer us."
Cons: "No more seat back pocket. Its aolid plastic now & nothing fits. No meal service on a 4 hour flight. That's ridiculous. No check in counter. Just a sea of people fighting for kiosks to self check in. Bad enough there's no more ticket agents, they could at least have an organized line."
Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
Cons: "My seat cushion was not in correctly and very uncomfortable. Movies were free on my last flight and coat money on this one."
Pros: "Seats were great. Will fly with this airline again."
Pros: "The stewardess was personable. The staff at the United Club reception desk, helped with a seating problem on my return trip."
Cons: "The climate of both planes was not great. It may have to do with the age of the plane."
