Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process; no lingering trying to sit."
Cons: "We waited for a while to depart; I believe that's customary dealy for Charlotte Douglas now, so not a sole reflection of United."
Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"
Pros: "Appreciated the boarding style, more organized crowds"
Cons: "Seats are getting too small, not enough room for elbows"
Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."
Cons: "When sitting straight up in the seat, my knees hit the seat in front of me. United seems to be making the space between each seat terribly close."
Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."
Pros: "We didn't crash?"
Cons: "After much concerns and inquiries made bag did NOT make the plane! There is as no one to h love me to n white Planes for 45 minutes! No one at the counter? Wow! Finally supervisor Jill was able to track it down in Chicago where th y took it off the he plane as my carry on because they had no room l ft from the h limited space. After working very hard to get my bag of o White Plains that evening, supervisor Jill hung out an hour past her shift ended to get it on the last transport to my hotel. The transport blew herself by ft and never showed up or called the o say he wasn't coming back! I got my bag on he next morning just in tim for my event! I also was not credited my frequent flyer miles. Some glitch in the system. Overall I must rate my experience as a one star simply because the pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "Our seats weren't changed on us, as it was going to Florida"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "How they wouldn't even hand out a cup of water to anyone....."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Cons: "Plane didn't leave until 2.5 hours after expected departure time and we never got an actual reason why. This also made me miss my connecting flight so I had to spend an additional 6 hours in the airport waiting."
Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."
Pros: "Nothing about 9 HOURS in an Airport is great! I walked from where I landed coming from Calgary, to terminal 2 Gate F 17 because that was where the flight to Lexington was to leave from. Then I got notice it was leaving from terminal 1 Gate B 24 so (I'm sure I walked a mile there) to get there. Waited for a number of hours checked my phone and found the departure was back again at terminal 1 Gate F 17!?!?! So I walked another mile back to where I started. At no point was I offered a drink or meal voucher for the 9 hour delay/inconvenience in my flight to Lexington ky. Suffice to say that I will NEVER go on any flight if I have to go back through this airport. I also have horrible knees, which all the walking did not help."
Cons: "I would like to say that as a person with a disability, there is not any support for help getting around. They have plenty of for lack of a better term "golf carts"; but no one utilizing them. Not that I am a world traveler; but this airport could take more than a page from Calgary international in terms of support to those with disabilities. I will NEVER and I do mean NEVER go through something like this again. I expected to be home in Lexington at 5:00pm and did NOT arrive until midnight.??!! This is in my opinion quite unacceptable! What a way to spend a hard earned vacation day! Thanks Luanne Steele"
Pros: "The long haul from Latvia to Oregon is usually a pain but the SAS employees worked to make it as positive as possible. Everything was great from the seats and accommodation to the food and staff."
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: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."
Pros: "Boarding was much more organized with lines marked for each boarding group. The crew was super friendly. Also, I received a whole can of cran-apple juice, which was much nicer than just a small cup. The tv options were also fairly priced for the options available."
Pros: "Great customer service.. Comfortable flight and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Paying for one check in bag..."
Pros: "Even though i wasn't able to choose my own seat I was given a fairly good seat near the front of economy"
Cons: "The entertainment system was lacking compared to the system on the Lufthansa flight from Riyadh. The touch screen wasn't easy to manipulate and the choice of movies wasn't the same. I know it was united coming to Chicago but the actual Lufthansa airline flight exceeded expectations over united by far!"
Pros: "I liked it that you got a little snack even though it was just a short flight! The boarding was very fast!"
Cons: "There was not very much space for the legs! The seats were very close!"
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"
Cons: "The seats didn't bend back to be comfortable. Only 1 inch!!! The back was restless"
Pros: "Nice flight and on time."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Your Crew!!!! From the lady who checked me in to the last flight attendant saying thank you for flying with us... you should really be proud of your staff!"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Flights took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Flight home was moved an hour early when I checked in. Gate attendant offered me a $500 voucher for taking the next flight...and then ended up putting me on the early flight anyway and gate checking my luggage. I really wish I got both the voucher AND to hold onto my carry-on. And then, leg room on that flight was so bad. I am only 6ft tall and was squished in like a sardine."
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."
Pros: "Economy Plus is OK and crew is fine."
Cons: "Food is absolutely atrocious on US airlines."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Cons: "I would like to see free movies added to the flight like American Airlines have."
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "power outlets were present but not functional. A real pity as I counted on it for my long trip to keep my portable devices. Lounge in Chicago does not have many outlets either and the next plane to Brussels either. This prevented me to keep my devices up along my trip preventing to work or watch movie as I wanted."
Pros: "Checking in at ticket counter was easy, service was accomdating for mom w disability. Love the option abt free ck bag for carryon. Very happy with change of flight option when original lay over was canceled. Love the text message update"
Cons: "Flight attendant "China" - needs to be doing something else - she was not interested in her job."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and service was good."
Cons: "Flight was 5 hours longer than anticipated due to Pakistan closing their air space. Communication of this from airline was poor. Older plane -- entertainment system not working well."
Cons: "For my return journey I had to contact the airlines for change of date. It was a nightmare experience. Each time I called, I had to spend minimum of 45/60 minutes on hold while I was repeatedly pushed to new agents. This might be the only airline which would require an international passenger to visit the booking office personally to claim exemptions from date change penalty. ( my mother passed away and I wanted exemption because of bereavement)And to top it, no one knew the location of the booking office..."
Pros: "The food coming from India was a notch above the food going there, perhaps because one is prepared in India where it is more economical to supply. I would definitely take the airline again, because of the value/price."
Cons: "The restrooms need more attention and the entertainment system has some glitches."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 7 hrs without any explanation."
Cons: "1. Entertainment box didn’t work and no response from crew. 2. No pillows and when asked for one, reply was there are no pillows. 3. No one comes with water and No water kept in the intermediate stations. 4. Overall, a horrible experience."
Pros: "We were delayed for so long we missed our connection. They did put us up in a hotel for the night, though."
Cons: "Every time we asked when the flight would actually board, they just added 15 minutes rather than give an actual time."
Cons: "Tv screen did not work during entire journey."
Pros: "Saving grace was food otherwise flight was unbearable."
Cons: "Seats of aircraft were broken/torn and virtually non-existant entertainment system."
Cons: "Late plus equipment is not in good condition."
Pros: "I liked the food served"
Cons: "No crew member came to collect the jacket from psgrs and finally I had to ask for it. Your inflight supervisor and at times even commander used to come around and enquirer about the passenger comfort quality of food etc. none this time. Seats do not recline fully some one needs to do a preflight check."
Pros: "Every thing is good"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for hours that i needed to get on to another flight."
Pros: "It's a direct flight to Chicago. That is the only think that attracts me towards air india. Otherwise, it sucks!"
Cons: "From Lucknow to Delhi, the flight was overbooked. I and my 4 years old was given seats which were already booked for other passengers. I had to stand in the aisle for about 20 minutes with my toddler until the crew sorted all the confusion. Instead of offering some help while waiting with a kid and cabin luggage, the crew wanted me to make sure there is space for them to move around. After arriving at the Delhi airport, I realized that my and my daughter's seats were not together. Seriously??Do I need to request for adjacent seats when travelling with a 4 years old? Isn't that obvious? May be not, for Air India employees... With her + Cabin luggage, they made me walk from international to domestic terminal to get our seat issue sorted. After I lost my patience and temper, I finally got seats together otherwise I was told - Sorry! Flight is full, so we can't do anything. Nothing unusual, Pathetic experience as always. I know I am wasting my time even by writing this review but I have to. Civic sense, customer service and humanity is what we Indian lack badly, so don't have much expectations anyways."
Pros: "I can't think of anything I really liked about my flight. Crew tried to arrange kid's meal at least - so okay!"
Cons: "Boarding issues already mentioned above. If you are not looking for flight status on the screens available at the airport, there are chances you may miss your flight. They don't bother to make announcements about boarding. Entertainment - Useless... it never works! The flight attendant had to restart a couple of times, even then it didn't work properly. Poor...Poor...Poor!!"
Cons: "Awful smell in the flight Bad food Dirty hand rests Dirty seats Food spilled all over"
Cons: "Entertainment very poor with no WIFI old movies"
Pros: "The staff try to be helpful."
Cons: "Horrible state of planes. My entertainment system didn't work and when I complained to the staff I was told that it was all fixed. This was a total lie. I had no entertainment system or even a working reading light for a 14 and a half hour flight from Delhi to Chicago. Some of the bathrooms were closed because they were "defective". Overall, Air India is going from bad to worse and, unless the guaranteed jobs are taken away, things won't improve."
Cons: "This was a 16 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment! The least you all could have done is provide passengers with a wifi password. Extremely disappointed."
Pros: "Food quality and quantity was good. Staff was courteous and attentive"
Cons: "Aircraft equipments can be more up to date. Few tv screens were not working."
Cons: "Seat 52E was broken. I had to pad the exposed metal bar with blankets and sit on it for 15 hours. It has given me back ache."
Pros: "The only good thing is that this is a direct flight! - The airline host/hostess staff were okay to deal with - The boarding process was okay too, similar to other airlines - The Delhi airport that we flew out of is a major improvement over the past ones"
Cons: "1. The comfort and ambiance is poor. The plastic on tray tables on my seat was broken and dirty. 2 The seat cushion is thin and feels like sitting directly on a board. I had a pain my back. Not sure of why can such a major airline out of India not try to spend back a little money to improve the comfort. 3. The space was also a pain point, when you are travelling such a long leg of flight, a little bit more space is always helpful... I think this airline has the least space among the ones I traveled with. 4. India is a country of amazing culinary experience and the food here was worse than the hostel. THIS PART WAS JUST A SHAME!"
Cons: "The TV monitors or remote did not work for 3 out of 4 seats, we were able to change seats due to the empty plane so we got lucky."
Cons: "There was just 2 full meals and a sandwich served n 16 hours long flight. Colddrink and peanuts was also served just once...It is the worst I have ever seen...Though the food service in flight AI 126 was good...As compared to AI 127"
Pros: "everything except entertainment was good"
Cons: "The TV on my seat was not working"
Pros: "they have a lot of options on good movies and shows, the flight is always generally on time"
Cons: "there is not much stress on cleaning the seats and the aisles. the lavatory kept running out of toilet paper and smelled real bad."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "For business class travel seats are pretty old and uncomfortable as to the other airlines"
Pros: "The food served was good"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, the entertainment at my seat was not working as well"
Pros: "Only non stop flight from Delhi"
Pros: "plane did not crash"
Cons: "crew wasnot customer friendly"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Aircraft in bad shape. Looks and feels old. Seats had barely any cushion. Many of the individual entertainment systems were fully or partially broken."
Cons: "No drinks with meals, crappy inflight. Customer Service is poor."
Pros: "Overall they got us in Chicago safely, was a directly flight with a good aircraft, decent seats and ambiance, and food was just okay."
Cons: "1. Recommend a better presentation of food and improve quality. This is not a hospital recommended food, so stop cutting corners! 2. Improve your seats and make sure they are not ripped 3. Improve your bathroom with quality healthcare items. - When someone is paying thousands of dollars to fly, at least provide them with decent hand soap with a bottle that is not broken - Do not put those bottles that come in hotels, but put some decent fixtures"
Pros: "Loved the staff, amenties offered, comfort of business class for the price paid, baggage limits"
Cons: "No wi-fi when staff told me it would be on in 5 minutes, boarding process is a nightmare, selection of entertainment lacks compared to other airlines"
Pros: "courteous staff great service"
Cons: "no separate checkin lines for executive class"
Pros: "I like some thing : 1- the air is on time . 2-food"
Cons: "Crew was very rude and did not respond to any attendant lights. Seats have not been updated in decades, there is no cushioning left and they were very uncomfortable! They recline about 2 inches total. Old cracked tables/seats in front as well. Bathrooms do not function properly and are poorly maintained. Only one drink service, the rest of the time it is water only."
Pros: "Only food was good."
Cons: "Air hostess needs to smile at customers. Not be rude. Please hire cheerful personality."
Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed about the flight was when it was over!"
Cons: "The Flight was to be 15 1/2 hrs. and the entertainment along with the reading light weren't working. I asked the cabin Steward (3) times in the first hour, along with several other passengers sitting near me, about this. He said he's checking on it. 7 1/2 hours into the flight there was an announcement that they will be rebooting the computer to allow all passengers viewing of the entertainment. Very Rude when serving and picking up from the food- so called service. Now I understand why they weren't wearing name tags. They didn't want to be called out on there Incredibly Poor service!!"
Cons: "Entertainment unit wasnt working. Seat wouldnt recline. Crew wasnt very helpful. I contacted them several times to either reset the console or find a new seat for the two of us but they replied with the flight is full and they dont know how to fix the media unit. Side remote wouldnt work either. I think the planes are really old and need update. Since this is the only non stop flight from chicago to Delhi they are able to operate daily, but with another airline in competition it would be tough."
Cons: "entertainment system was not working on a 15 hr flight. really poor quality of service"
Pros: "The connection is great Staff is courteous"
Cons: "The quality of food has deteriorated over the years Nothing served for the first 6 hours of the flight The seats need to be changed - hard and uncomfortable Entertainment options were very limited"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Ground staff handling is horrible, specifically the supervisor at the Delhi airport Rajeev Rathore was very callous, despite bringing it to his attention that their are families with young kids (not my kids, I was traveling alone) who need to be taken care of, he simply shrugged it off, on the other hand people with influence would be moved ahead of line at the counter (that is the INDIA way I was told). I will not fly this airline again. The aircraft inside is in state of disrepair, the lights and the entertainment system does not work (luckly my family is traveling by different airline), imagine young kids with screen not working for 15 hours. Overworked staff. I strongly recommend avoiding this airline."
Pros: "The flight arrived on time, in spite of departing one hour late. The captain's announcements were clear and precise. The food was good. The air hostesses were great!"
Cons: "The plane was really old. The entertainment center malfunctioned. The remote never worked. The AC didn't work for the first 2 hrs. it was unbearable. The bathrooms were poorly maintained. Half the bathrooms weren't working."
Cons: "Entertainment screen was not working for both seats in both ways flights. So it was not a rare event. It seems most of them are not working and airline does not bother about them. In a 16 hrs flight without entertainment for a kid is too much problem. We will avaoid it from next time."
Pros: "enjoyed 50 min flight"
Pros: "nothing much to like"
Cons: "Media system wasnt working"
Pros: "Nice temperature on the plane and the entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. I arrived for my 2am flight at 10:30pm and was not checked in until 12:30am. Air India check-in staff was very rude and not helpful. I was minutes away from missing my flight even though I arrived earlier than the recommended 3 hours. Was not the best experience."
Pros: "There was ample leg space and demeanor of flight attendants was very pleasant."
Cons: "The planes are bit old."
Cons: "Entertainment screen was not working at all."
