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.

Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. 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: "Everyone was very friendly and courteous the plane was very comfortable!"
Cons: "I know things happen but it didn’t make a pleasant travel experience sitting on the plane for almost 2 hours and the fear of missing my connection to NO"
Pros: "Crowded boarding area, but no standing around for long. Quick boarding. Entertainment not available so can't rate that. Good crew"
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: "The plane was clean and well staffed. The crew was nice and helpful if I needed anything. The snacks and drinks are decent and what you would expect: small bags of pretzels or cookies and your choice of Coke product or coffee. Using the mobile Delta app made boarding and finding my gate a breeze."
Cons: "The seats were hard, and it was hard to fall asleep."
Pros: "ditto above"
Cons: "ditto above"
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: "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: "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: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."
Pros: "Delta is known to be one of the best airlines and they stand up to it in every flight."
Pros: "Seat width"
Cons: "More leg room, Southwest actually has better leg room"
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice, they allowed me to board early."
Cons: "There was no entertainment because the system was not working in our area."
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t. Ate, slept, woke, ate and landed. Too easy"
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Cons: "The stewards on American Airlines are literally scary to talk to; rude and unprofessional."
Cons: "Boarding and the crew was not nice"
Pros: "service perfect"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Noisy children."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Great customer care"
Pros: "Nothing — the flight was cancelled because of a fault on the plane."
Cons: "Cancelled flight.."
Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good entertainment option, good food."
Cons: "I reserved a special solo seat for extra $80 and got charged for it but did not get that seat. I was seated in a window side seat with another passenger."
Pros: "Crew was nice we."
Cons: "We were separated from our children even after we upgraded seats because they bumped us on the other flight."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Almost everything :) Great new aircraft, really nice crew and well organized boarding."
Cons: "It is a longer flight that I would have liked, but I knew that."
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "The flight to New York was not full and I was surprised when the representative automatically upgrades me to an even-more seat, which I found great because at 6-feet tall I had a tough time on the way to England being in the right spaces at the rear of the airplane."
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Pros: "A great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "I love everything on my trip service, time, flight"
Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "I like that they let a 70-yo wobbly old man hobble the length of plane to get some hot tea because there's no climate control i the air craft, and let the poor old man hobble back by himself juggling the hot tea in his hand and trying his best not to fall. Plus I truly admire one of the air stewardess's ability to chew gum - she was chewing vigorously throughout the 7-hour long flight. Amazing."
Cons: "BA and AA is the best partners. Because both their air crew are clueless about service standards. A 7-hour flight from London to JFK, again no meal choices, no offer of drinks in between meal times - is this a standard Western service level?"
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "I met someone who was going to a university I used to attend from South Africa. I enjoyed the entertainment selection and the fact that the flight was quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence on the plane ride a couple of times during the 8 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time, both ways. The price was terrific for round trip, direct LA to London. Service was great, too."
Pros: "The leg room, seats were comfortable. Lucked out no one sat next to me. Good entertainment choices. Good headset. So the PA doesn't deafen you when it kicks in."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work, so I couldn't contact family. Lady on end of my aisle was sick with a cold. Good was ok. But at least you didn't starve."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Need to go with new food items other than the "chicken or pasta" choices and do something else besides pretzels for snacks."
Pros: "the flight crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "First, the London desk crew are not the the first people you want to encounter at 5:30 in the morning of travel. We were in an older aircraft - my seat-back compartment was broken so it leaned against my legs for 9 hours. They ran out of one of the breakfast options by the time they got to me so I was stuck with just fruit and crackers because I was allergic to the sole remaining option. Not only didnt we have individual screens, but they played the same movie back-to-back."
Pros: "Our flight was smooth other than a few bumps along the way. Pillows and blankets were provided. The plane seemed clean. Most of the staff seemed friendly and helpful except for one stewardess who seemed to be in a very bad mood. The food was fair for airline food and the free wine or beer with the meal was appreciated. The snacks we received before we landed were very tasty!"
Cons: "The seats made you feel cramped and the gap between the window seat and the outside of the plane made any light from a window shade opened in front of you blinding when the rest of the plane was pretty much dark with windows closed. TV touch screens on the back of the seats in front of you were slow responding and hard to see when a window shade was open near you."
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Pros: "Transported me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Seat was extremely narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "It didn't happened. Flight from Seattle was late and I flew 4 hrs later with LOT."
Cons: "Very disorganized Entertainment systems were very outdated, and were not operating correctly. Crew were mediocre at best. Were never friendly. Food was ok."
Pros: "Good schedule, flew to local airport. Convenient."
Cons: "Small aircraft."
Cons: "I booked an aisle seat, confirmed when checking in, but ended up in a middle."
Pros: "Movies were wonderful. Wheelchair services were outstanding!"
Cons: "I am very short, but there wasn't enough space for me to have any leg rom at all. I felt really badly for anyone else who was taller than me. That was my only complaint."
Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Enough space between seats"
Cons: "Very little food"
Cons: "Flight was late due to mechanical issues. Couldn’t exit the plane in Chicago bc of JetWay malfunction."
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."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"
Cons: "I understand sometimes there are problems with gates once a plane lands, but an hour on the tarmac waiting to get into a gate is ridiculous. Pay up to have gates available for your aircraft. We have choices when flying. If you disrespect the customer's time, we take our business elsewhere. Also, having the customer do everything from tagging our baggage and automated check-in at the airport should reflect in the price we pay for a flight. Instead, you make us do all the work and keep prices the same."
Pros: "The actual flight was great, employees on the plane were very friendly"
Cons: "We missed flight by 5 minutes and employees were not helpful at all. We had to stay the night in Houston due to this fact and caught a flight out the next morning. The employees were all ready to get off work and left w/o helping us."
Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."
Pros: "Everything was good."
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: "The international flights were fine."
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 attendants were nice,"
Cons: "Seats are much too cramped. Even for economy seat, it is difficult to move."
Pros: "Entertainment via the phone was nice First meal was okay with pasta and bread Facilities were clean Power source below seat was good"
Cons: "Entertainment via plane monitors was bad Sound for entertainment via plane monitors kept breaking up Second meal with a turkey sando and chips was bland Seats weren't comfortable No internet provided"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Seating in cabin is horribly tight"
Pros: "Customer service was very good and the attendants went out of their way to make the passengers as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and did not have tv's in the consoles. Very painful to take a 12 hour flight with minimal entertainment. The wifi was not working so could not even use the personal device entertainment. Definitely felt like the airline did not value the customers or our comfort."
Pros: "Thumbs-up to the flight attendant who filled my metal water bottle to the top."
Cons: "I needed to work on this flight but never got online. Disturbingly, I pressed the flight attendant button twice to ask why unitedwifi.com was "unable to handle this request" for so long, but no one came to my seat. Much later, when the food cart came by, the attendant at the front told the other one to reset my light. The second one then asked if I had a question -- but didn't know what the wifi problem was. Hours later I did manage to get onto unitedwifi.com and learned that it's impossible to connect to using Chrome. Why did the crew not know this?! Then I was confronted with the $20 price tag to get on the internet. I started to pay, but the transaction took so long to complete that I realized it would be pointless to connect if that was the speed I could expect."
Cons: "The dinner, Thai Chicken Curry, contained nuts. Nobody communicated that to the passengers. I ate the Curry, not knowing there were nuts in the dish - I am allergic to nuts. Spent much of the flight feeling sick, being physically sick, feeling ill and not being able to think about anything else. After reading the Curry container cover, it did say the dish contained nuts. But the flight staff, I think, should have communicated this. Also who puts a dish with nuts in it on a plane, with all the allergies that passengers could have? I was not going to die from the experience, but some people are more allergic than I am. I think this choice of menu was very inappropriate."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
Pros: "The check in process was very fast and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. We even arrived a half hour early."
Cons: "I booked this one as a Lufthansa flight, so I was disappointed to find out that it was actually just United. I've never encountered an airline bait and switch like that before. Also there was a group of children on the flight who were screaming (not crying – very literally screaming) at the top of their lungs for a long stretch of the flight."
Cons: "The UA in flight entertainment system is absurd. It doesn't consistently work and when it does it forces passengers to use small devices, etc."
Pros: "Pilots kept us well informed Flight arrived early Staff were very nice"
Cons: "The 757-200 is a small older plane for such a premium route of London to NY. Conditions felt cramped. The 767 going the other way was much more pleasant with the extra aisle for stretching your legs. The main meals were not nice, pasta options were not appetizing at all."
Pros: "United airlines handled the flit gut and their international service is excellent."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and professional. They looked like they were genuinely enjoying their job. The crew were London based on both of my journeys and both crews were excellent. Thank you United Airlines for making my flight an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "I don't being changed to United flights"
Pros: "The plane flew."
Cons: "We must have had the oldest plane in the fleet. Small screen entertainment with cycling channel movies, not individual choice ... And my screen did not even work. Uncomfortable seating. Poor meal choice. Service was average, some of the staff seemed to be doing the best they could with what they were given. Some didn't seem to try at all. Why is United so far behind any other sta Star"
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending the color."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Man in front of me smelled so every time he moved the odor came back to me and since I was stuck in the last row it had no where else to go!"
Cons: "Kayak suckssssssssss"
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 flight attendants were attentive and polite."
Pros: "Good movies, empty seats so i could stretch out."
Cons: "The crew was nice! But a little awkward. The food was kind of bad."
Pros: "Boarding was swift, seat was fine, service was pleasant, flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a tiny, pixelated screen playing a few movies on loop. Felt like it was 20 years old. Food was fine, but the pre-landing snack was a very greasy, ham and cheese on pretzel roll sandwhich."
Cons: "Crew was rude and did not reply to my call button when I rang it 3 times. Boarding was confusing. Instructions to get your passport checked before your zone boarded was not clear. Boarding agents were pleasant, but onboard crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew both ways were professional and hard working."
Cons: "The flight was a code share with United. Seats were ridiculously cramped in economy. Perhaps this is the new normal--I haven't flown internationally in a while. Food was just ok. I was disappointed that I was not flying Air New Zealand since that was part of the reason I booked this flight."
Pros: "Stewards were great."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 40 minutes before taking off and 45 minutes before we docked and get off the plane...."
Cons: "Wifi was atrocious and I spent $16.99 on it. No one was manning the jet bridge so after we took off 2 hours late we had another delay of 15 minutes on the arrival. Our late takeoff was due to some plane issue, we missed our window and got held up by traffic control. Weather was perfect. All UAL fault."
Cons: "Flew on 747 not as comfortable and enjoyable as the dreamliners."
Pros: "There really wasn't anything good about this flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed about 4 hours leaving, first delayed, then cancelled, then reinstated with a stop in Chicago so switch crew. The plane's AC didn't work on the ground so it was hot while we sat there. Arrived in SFO about 8-9 hours late, missed all connecting flights home and then they wanted us to spend the night. It was less than a 2 hour drive home so I ended up renting a car and doing that!"
Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"
