Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food.

That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Flight was late leaving JFK. I paid extra for Comfort Plus and had the most uncomfortable seat ever. My back ached during and after the flight. Absolutely the worst seat ever that I have had flying. While it was a short flight we were supposed to get serviced during the flight, but there was no cabin service unless you were in 1st class. So much for the perks of Comfort Plus as there were none. Not even a glass of water. Wow! When we landed late obviously because we left late we were late and there was no ground crew to get our plane to the gate so we sat for over 1/2 hour on the taxi way waiting for ground crew to be available for us to get to the gate. To add insult of injury when we did get to go to the gate there was no gate available for use so we had to deplane in the rain down the emergency stairs. They said that if you had a problem with the steep stairs that they would make other accommodations. Probably would have been another delay so we all carefully went down the steep slippery stairs. I doubt that the stairs met any OHSA or safety requirements except for emergency issues. They were wet and slippery. This was the absolute worst trip that I have taken with Delta. It will seriously influence my future trip decisions."
Cons: "Not being on time. Not delivering service stated. Sitting on a taxi way for extra time. Having to disembark down steep slippery stairs, basically an emergency exit. This trip was late from start to finish."
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Pushed back early, short taxi, took off one minute after scheduled departure, smooth flight, landed a half hour before scheduled time."
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"

Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"

Pros: "Nice aircraft"

Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Pros: "on time and it was comfortable"
Pros: "The airplane was new and very spacious. Air hostess were very accommodating. The flight took off and landed on time. Food and snack quality was amazing. Entertainment options were plenty. Restrooms were clean and smelled fresh through the journey."
Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."
Cons: "Overall was Great."
Cons: "Didnt like the food or the movie selections"
Cons: "They closed the counter too early , missed flight Did mot accommodate although I was there 50 minites prior to the flight"
Pros: "They brought lots of water"
Cons: "Crew member threw mini pretzels on my lap when I was dozing off no protein for vegetarian lots of carbs why not to give some yogurt for protein for vegetarian it's not that we are vegan have more space for middle seat Teach crew not to throw food on somebody's lap and startle them"
Pros: "The movies and food"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was freezing both ways to the extreme I had to cover up to my neck with a blanket for 8 hours."
Pros: "Cerainly boarding is easy and the seats are quite comfort in business class."
Cons: "the service, considering this was the highest level of service on these flights was less than I would have expected"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Pros: "The food and drink were abundant and served at a decent pace. The boarding seemed quick and I was able to get to my seat quickly."
Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Pasta was good."
Cons: "The touch screen did NOT work most of the time.Not able to watch GPS or select movie..."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flying, arrived on time"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could have been more user friendly"
Pros: "More options for food like rice chicken or rice beef"
Cons: "Pls have decent meal plans and the seats were very uncomfortable American Airlines need improvement in all areas"
Pros: "Boarding in London was smooth, we arrived early. New plane, good seats for extra $$."
Cons: "Food could be better, even on an international flight. Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Cons: "Flight connection was too close. Delays in leaving Nairobi made us almost miss this flight"
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Comfort in business class. Service was excellent."
Cons: "2nd meal choices were very limited."
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with good food and movie options."
Cons: "Being in the last row, the deaf didn't recline much and I had difficulty sleeping. Also, I was not informed on the ticket that this particular international flight only allowed one free checked bag, not two, ad got stuck with a $100 extra baggage fee."
Cons: "I despise Heathrow. I'll only go there or use an airline there as a last resort."
Pros: "The service was super"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and apologetic for the chronic problems with the entertainment system. The pilot gave us a smooth flight and landing, and was very conscientious about turbulence prevention and safety."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was spotty. Some customers had monitors that worked, some did not. A woman with a two-year old had one of the malfunctioning monitors and was forced to entertain her child for nine hours without tv, movies or music. Similarly, on our flight over to London 10 days earlier, my husband and I were 2 of more than 30 passengers whose monitors never worked and we were forced to fly for 7 hours in the dark on an overnight flight staring at the backs of seats. It was miserable. The cabin crew told passengers they had begged the airline for years to replace the system but the airline refuses. Will not fly American Airlines transatlantic again."
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Pros: "The seats on the plane were well covered and leather like that was helpful"
Cons: "The food was horrendous ant the staff unprepared for service . They don't want to be service oriented they want to be your equal they are two familiar and on the edge of rude."
Pros: "flight was on time. Very friendly attendants. Plane was only 1 month old and was absolutely amazing. The personal entertainment system made a 9 hour flight actually enjoyable! Loved the recline of the seats!"
Cons: "healthier options for food."
Pros: "Service and smooth flight."
Cons: "I bought two exit seats and they were not given to me."
Pros: "Very pleasant cabin crew. Flight right on time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient . Liked the option to upgrade to priority boarding, however."
Cons: "Always hard to hear what group is boarding due to poor quality of microphone at desk. Visual reader board would help."
Pros: "1. Heathrow - transit very professional 2. Heathrow - Philly - flight AA 734 was excellent. 3. I like the AA concept of making fliers pay for hard drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was so so as usual."
Pros: "Pampered by flight crew !!!"
Pros: "The American Airlines plane was very clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and attentive at all times. I enjoyed the food served and the selection of movies offered inflight was excellent. I would definitely travel with American again."
Cons: "I wish the vegetarian meal was a little better thought out! It tasted a bit like hospital food."
Pros: "On time dep/ arrival"
Cons: "Incompetente of Ground agent. Uninterested flight attendants in business class. Luckily it was a n In revenue ticket. Would never pay for that level of service."
Pros: "Flight attendets were great, friendly, helpful, made me feel very welcoming, it made such a great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "Great flight, Fantastic landing in Charlotte. l was pleased with everything on flight home."
Cons: "My 11am flight had engine problems, so at 1pm they asked if anyone wanted to leave and take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. About 30 people said yes, as I did too. After running across Heathrow to make flight, we got on plane and Waited....seems after running a Mile across the airport, they Decided to HOLD the Flight and have everyone from 11am flight take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. All the baggage had to be taken from 11am flight and brought to 2pm flight. Delay for take off was almost 2 HOURS!!! Instead of arriving in Charlotte at 3pm, we were Leaving at that time!!! Didn't get to Charlotte until almost 9pm. NO ONE on Flight from 11am was Happy about this."
Pros: "I fell asleep and missed dinner. When I woke up one of the stuff came up to me and asked me if I would like to eat something and went especially for me and got me the the dinner portion. Although we had a delay I was informed promptly and the staff apologized for my inconvenience. The airline took responsibility and did not blame the delay on other factors. Thanks for being honest"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "Great staff and leg room/comfort. Food, drinks and entertainment was superb! Comfortable Boeing 787."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Pros: "Movies and food"
Cons: "I went and picked up my luggage in Dallas and an AA rep ensured me my luggage was going to El Paso in my flight ... Not true"
Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."
Pros: "Crew very helpful. Screen broken, crew attempted to fix. When unable to fix, moved seat. Followed up and made sure I was taken care of."
Cons: "Entertainment screen broken."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and informative"
Cons: "It felt a bit cramped, but overall nice seats and movie screens"
Pros: "Seat configurations"
Cons: "Movies inflight entertainment outdated"
Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Flight was calm and arrived early"
Cons: "Odd seat rows are cramped. Food was below average. Dry salmon and chicken. Flight attendants were barely visible. My seat did not work properly"
Pros: "Loved the food. Great for flash frozen and then microwaved. Service was excellent, much better than the going flight."
Cons: "Small screens, spotty wifi, no real entertainment."
Pros: "It was a United Flight which I have taken before and is always good. Great flight attendants, good food and close to on time"
Cons: "This particular flight is on a very old 747 which does not have individual seat back video screens."
Pros: "New plane, friendly flight attendants, quick meal and drink service and we arrived a bit early. Nice job overall."
Pros: "Great crew as always, very helpful informative and professional"
Cons: "No entertainment. Pathetically small seat back screen and no access to films and the personal screen system which was working that allows you to access entertainment via the united wifi app (fantastic in theory) never connected for the entire flight so 8 hours with nothing.... take your own uploads if you want to see anything"
Pros: "The crew were better than most"
Cons: "The food was in-edible. I would not feed it to my dog. The comfort in economy is near torture for a person who is tall. The on board entertainment was not functioning well. Need I say more....United airlines has slipped to the bottom in the last few years....SAD."
Pros: "Finest Business Class experience I've had. Flew to Europe on Lufthansa, which I had liked the best, but UAL's new cabins and services were far better."
Pros: "Was easy trip"
Cons: "Food & very small not clear vedio screen"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and receptive to needs on the flight."
Cons: "Baggage Claim was a nightmare. I did not receive a baggage ticket when I checked my bag in London. Part of that is my fault. I should have made sure I had one. It took an extra long time to get my bag. Everyone else had left the area from my flight and I approached the counter. The attendant at the counter was rude. She said she couldn't help me unless I had the baggage claim ticket. Which I get that, but it all comes down to how she said it to me. She went over to the carousel and said that my flights bags were still going around and at that time I saw my bag. I said there it is to her and she responds, well you can go get it yourself then. Just completely rude. It all came down to how she responded to me. I was freaking out at the prospect of my bag being lost and she responded as clipped and uncompassionately as possible."
Pros: "Free paid attention to details. I was given a vegetarian snack when the one provided had run out."
Cons: "Could not book a seat next to my wife and I had tried weeks before."
Pros: "At boarding there were delays which the boarding personnel updated as they had information. After boarding flight crew passed out water while we waited on the tarmac for hours while a maintenance issue was reviewed. Safety protocols that had a engine issue looked at on the ground prior to putting us in the air. Curry chicken was good."
Cons: "Several issues that caused this flight to be late. Part of the issue was the plane was not available to be in the gate on time. The longest delay was on the tarmac for over 2 hours as an engine was analyzed. Does this suggest need for more regular maintenance? I don't know. Given the delays I think United could have done more in recognition of the delay to its customers on the flight such as not charging for some of the services they normally charge for like wifi access and such. As it was I was delayed on both legs of my trip by a minimum of an hour. United should do better."
Pros: "Crew was cheerful and helpful, no delays, everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Nice newer plane"
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional corporate culture is blatantly obvious at United. They have learned nothing, and changed nothing, after their multiple recent failures. Flight attendants on this segment openly mocked and spoke ill of passengers loud enough for many other passengers to hear. I will avoid at all costs in the future."
Cons: "The plane was completely outdated and very dirty and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, the complimentary wine and beer, the service, the movies!"
Cons: "The flights was delayed, but it worked OK for our schedule this time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! They were very friendly, visible, & polite. And they appeared to have a very busy flight with some high maintenance passengers, including a sick child."
Cons: "The plane was old and the back seat TVs were pretty terrible. Also the satellite didn't seem to be working to watch movies or TV through the United app, which was very disappointing on this rather long flight."
Pros: "Every member of the crew was really helpful, especially since I had a cello with me. They helped me with tips on how the airport and their boarding system worked, and I'm sure they are just as good with families and people carrying heavier luggage."
Pros: "Meal, snack, water and a glass of wine...the entertainment monitor functioned...brought my own ear phones but airline offered them...lotion in the toilet...friendly service...the small comforts make a HUGE difference...not being nickel and dimmed to death...really MATTERS...especially when you are crammed in."
Cons: "It is difficult to sit for 7+ hours in such tight quarters...but...for the price...I'd do it again. Also I had very considerate seat mates."
Pros: "I enjoyed the turkey and cheese pretzel sandwich, but I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard"
Cons: "I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard"
Pros: "The people at the gate were very friendly and helped ensure we made the plane although we were late because of a misunderstanding of the boarding times. The original itinerary was booked through Kayak for Lufthansa months ago. The flight was 10:25 and boarding time was 9:50 up until the night before the flight. The crew members made a remark while we boarded as if it was because we went to the duty free. It was not because of the duty free visit and would have liked to tell the flight attendant to keep that remark to herself or wait until she was in private with her coworkers. It's a matter of professionalism if she wasn't going to confront me personally."
Cons: "Plane was old. The overhead compartments kept opening upon takeoff and landing. Although passengers were able to close them, they would just open again. This posed a safety concern to the passengers near the compartments. (3 compartment doors that I know of opened). The TV screens were unsatisfactory for an international flight greater than 5 hours. The food was disgusting and competitor airlines offer a much better selection for international flights. Would not consider United for an international flight based on this experience despite price."
Cons: "I know it's cliché...but really..the food is horrible."
Pros: "Great food, great people, great service.we even got in a little early."
Pros: "Gate staff were courteous."
Cons: "I had about an hour layover in which I had time to use the restroom and buy lunch. I did these things, then went to wait at the assigned gate. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, they changed the departing gate for my connecting flight. The concourse area is so crowded and noisy, and announcements are only heard in the immediate gate are, that, though I was sitting only one gate over, I did not hear the boarding calls and missed my flight. I sat in Newark airport for six hours (which included a maintenance problem, gate change and 1 more hour delay) until the departure of the next flight to Burlington."
Pros: "10am flight so empty plane, practically every passenger had their own row. Steward team weren't overworked and no overhead luggage issues."
Cons: "Food selection was pretty limited. Chicken or vegetarian. Flight was actually operated by United, so I can't actually check in using Lufthansa, and lufthansa has better food the last time I flew."
Cons: "Again, United changed my original departure time from Burlington, VT to San Diego (via Chicago) from 10 am to 6:30 am. This meant an overnight stay in Burlington and loss of sleep and my free breakfast. In addition, I was stuck with 4+ hr layover in Chicago. The Chicago terminal was a mass of swarming people. Horrible!"
Cons: "ABSOLUTELY ZERO EMPATHY WHEN 2 MINUTES LATE TO GATE... Was actually mean and let 2 airline crew on while we stood there... plane there... our bags on... especially when United needs a better profile!!"
Cons: "This was actually a United flight. It is very confusing when all of the travel documents I received from Kayak show Austrian Airlines yet when I get to the airport to check in, it's United Airlines."
Pros: "The flight had no delays and boarding and flight went smoothly."
Cons: "The crew were not very polite and in some instances rude."
Pros: "At gate, staff generously gave me priority boarding because I'm pregnant."
Cons: "We couldn't access the inflight entertainment because we didn't have the United App and you can't download it once the flight has started (flight was operated by United)."
Cons: "No wifi on board and no individual screens"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. They were understaffed yet still managed to offer us something every half hour or so. It was the best flight I've had in regards to food service."
Cons: "The entertainment could have been better, and I broke my headphones an hour in. Therefore I read most of the trip"
Cons: "I booked a Lurthansa flight for good service and had to fly with United. No comparison. Pretty old plane"
Pros: "A really small and swift on her feet lady was waiting for us upon arrival, and had the best attitude meanwhile she rushed us through airport security, costumes, check in desk and boarding desk. I realize the Brussels Airlines delay is not toyr responsibility, yet you assumed the consecuences and managed it smoothly and coformtably for us."
Cons: "Even though the staff did an impeccable job rushing us through LHR to catch the flight, the situation was not comfortable at all. During the flight, the staff made sure that economy felt the economy - no smiles, no please or thank you - deffinitely not paying first class with that kind of staff aboard. On top of that, my luggage arrived 12hrs later on another flight and I was not even offered a chocolate bar... I can see why the tickets were the cheapest ones, I just didn't expect it to get as far as not delivering the luggage with the passenger."
Cons: "The food was poor and we were late to leave, causing me to miss my bus when we arrived. Also, no movies for a 9 hour flight? That was awful. In-flight entertainment should have been provided, especially when the flight was during the day."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and accommodating"
Cons: "There's a real problem on theses flights that are somehow multiply sponsored by different airlines. The ticket you sold me indicated Lufthansa, and my check in reminder the day before was for them. But they didn't know me from Adam. It finally emerged that the flight was actually run by United --and at Heathrow I had to hurry over from the Lufthansa to the United counter to check in --almost was late for my flight! Not nice. Could you please iron this issue out more clearly in the future."
Pros: "The stewardesses wee attentive. Liked my other passengers around me."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. The seat did not feel any larger for $189 extra! The internet never stated on for a longer period of time"
Pros: "enough leg room (I'm 5'10") vegetarian dish was delicious many choices of new movies alcoholic beverages were good"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Waited half an hour to take off"
Pros: "The staff at check-in at Terminal 2 at Heathrow airport were lovely... friendly, helpful. My suitcase was overweight so I had to remove 4lbs from my suitcase and redistribute it into my hand luggage. The staff were so polite and patient and had a very supportive attitude."
Cons: "1) The staff at the gate were mechanical and had an air of snootiness...non-genuine behaviour. 2) Cabin staff were not attentive and also very abrupt and short when approached for anything, despite the flight being at 30% capacity. 3) My arm was bandaged from my fingertips to my shoulder but when I asked staff to assist me with my hand luggage they refused 4) Food quantitiy was EXTREMELY low and the quality was appalling....there was less food given than in a MacDonalds Happy Meal."
Pros: "I liked that half the plane was single seats."
Cons: "We had to detour for a medical emergency that didn't really turn out to be one so we were delayed like an hour in getting to our destination. There was no on board entertainment."
Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"
Pros: "Flight on time and arrived early"
Pros: "Great crew attitude, food very nice, aircraft clean and comfortable, everything on time."
Cons: "I hadn't understood that the seating was 2-2-2 in Business. I was happy that the seat next to me was empty, but would not have liked it if it had been occupied. I wonder if they've done this to preserve some benefit for Furst Ckass passengers. I'd rather fly BA or Air Canada in business fir this reason."
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row facing the economy class, the divided curtain wasn't wide and thick enough to give you some privacy."
Pros: "On an 1:10 flight, we were served a full breakfast with multiple options and had two rounds of drink services. Punctual and helpful crew."
