Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"

Pros: "Solid movie selection, good food"
Cons: "You have to go through security again at the Qatar Airlines gate, which takes extra time"
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."
Cons: "Cheap headphones will not isolate sound from airplane engine for such an expensive entertainment"
Pros: "A couple more inches leg room than most airlines was welcome, They airline and crew were very good and the Doha airport very nice."
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."
Cons: "Seats are small and huge line for the toilet, but that is the nature of the plane and not Qatar's problem. Boarding was only good because passengers did not cooperate adn stood up when they were asked repeatedly not to."
Cons: "Was told to move seat up and down repeatedly"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very courteous and attentive. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. Didn't feel that the flight lasted for 16 hours."
Cons: "Food needs to be asked for rather than offered."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Very nice service"
Pros: "I will fly Qatar again"
Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"

Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "The food and seats were very comfy."
Pros: "Very generous with drinks and water to prevent dehydration. Two very good meals. Professional and courteous crew. Some unoccupied seats allowed passengers to spread out."
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Comfort and safety"
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew helped find a place for my violin. Even though I was early to the gate, they also helped me update my seat before the new flight crew arrived."
Pros: "Check in crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Boarding process Too many subclasses of boarding “priorities “ Too gimmicky"
Pros: "The crew was nice. They did a very good job under the circumstance."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour because of an error on Delta‘s part. They did not verify people as they were boarding. Further the person in 17 F was doing video chat as we were preparing to take off and he had very foul language throughout the flight. The crew never said anything."
Cons: "Took forever to wait in line to board this relatively small plane."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Flight didn’t leave Atlanta until after 8pm. Delta couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything to help with replacement flights to Madrid despite we were supposed to have 3 1/2 hours layover and had less than zero (the flight out left before the flight into Zurich was deplaned."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Cleaner window"
Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Pros: "Some Delta planes have headrest Screens. Both my flights did and love watching movies they offer at eye level then to use iPad and have to bed down to watch. You can’t tell why planes have seat back screens but sure glad my flights dis"
Cons: "Snack choice was only two items Cheezit or Cookies. Neither sounded good to me."
Cons: "Leave on time so passengers dont miss their connection flights My family of 7 people are stuck at the airport in Zurich with no connection flights until tomorrow to have to board on two additional flights Absolutely unacceptable Never again will we book flights with Delta."
Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."
Pros: "Crew was very sweet"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service flt DL0295 our flight attendant (Nancy, sorry didn’t get her last name) was fantastic."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was clean."
Cons: "No Tvs"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "The crew, the food, the amount of beverages served"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "Easy boarding nice clean and spacious, I am tall so it is sometimes difficult to have enough space in aricraft. Staff was very nice, polite and helpfull during the long 12h flight, very nice job indeed!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Agents rerouted me in face of weather problems so that I could make LAX-SYD connection. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. Beverage service insanely slow. Had already eaten sandwich by the time it reached me. Have seen this problem before on ATL-LAX, needs attention. Movie choices kinda limited ."
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "On time departure, actually got to Cabo early."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "Boarding went well, departed on time and arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Friendly and cleanliness."
Cons: "Cold drinks were warm."
Pros: "They have the flight very well planned out, you get frequent drnks and food initially and then they turn the lights out for a good amount of time so that people can rest. Then, they come by again before landing with more drinks and a snack. Very well coordinated."
Cons: "Really, my only complaint is that after leaving Atlanta ~ 4 pm,,you arrive in Europe at 8 am. The first day is very difficult to adjust to. I would much rather arrive in Europe at night, and get to rest for a night before starting."
Pros: "Able to watch an interview. Then part of a movie which makes the time fly."
Cons: "Late departure. Late arrival. So I got my car and landed in terrible traffic. Which I had hoped to avoid."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "Rebooked me on a flight from Nassau to Atlanta, and never worried about how I would get to Nassau from Georgetown, Exuma. Never even notified me about the rebooking. TERRIBLE customer service!"
Pros: "The flight actually took off."
Cons: "No forewarning of weather impacting flights 3 days later, allowing passengers to potentially change flights. Two hour delay became a four delay which became a five hour delay. Delta reps entirely unhelpful when I asked if anything could be done, "Atlanta is a disaster right now." I get that these things happen from time to time, but Delta is handling this very poorly. I'm actually waiting for my flight out of Atlanta and it's also been delayed, luckily only for 30 minute this time."
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "Seats in Delta Comfort section were quite nice. Flight attendants were extremely nice, attentive and helpful. The sandwich I purchased was tasty and a pretty good value for airline/airport food."
Pros: "Gate crew did a good job, passed out snacks and drinks with delay"
Cons: "Lot's of upset people worrying about connections"
Cons: "they treated us like cows"
Pros: "Nice service easy flight"
Cons: "Hot, ridiculously warm on the plane"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We were delayed about 40 minutes due to air traffic. It appears they knew that, and we could have waited in the air conditioned terminal, rather than on the plane. And, I could have informed my Niece I would be arriving late, but I had no Wifi."
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "The crew was good. They were friendly and efficient. One did forget to return with a promised coffee but she apologized when I spoke of it to her."
Cons: "1. no air conditioning until the plane was in the air. It was STIFLING on the runway. 2. no power sockets to charge devices"
Cons: "Huge delay... :("
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I don't like the movie options. Some are quite sexual and can be seen around the plane."
Pros: "Leg room was good. I am 6ft 2in"
Cons: "Seat bottom could have been better. I have a honey bottom"
Pros: "Airline met us at the plane to transfer us to our next flight to Tel Aviv! Excellent service and great entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "The food. It was okay."
Cons: "Seats very hard and uncomfortable in economy"
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."
Pros: "Even on this short 1-hour prop flight they do have average service and pass out Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of the delay in Zurich"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Cons: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Pros: "It was a total nightmare all Austrian flights they put us on were canceled !!! We did not leave Vienna for another 7 h a total nightmare all planes had technically difuculties !! Austrian airlines had total chaos !!!"
Cons: "Difficulty getting to flight"
Pros: "The flight was short and got us there"
Cons: "This was not business service. The seats were uncomfortable, virtually no leg room."
Pros: "the flight missed my connection and they were AWESOME in handling it, getting me on a Swiss Air flight. That flight also missed its connection and Swiss Air took great care to put me up in a hotel. They made a frustrating situation so much smoother!"
Cons: "We ended up needing to check a bag. It cost 40 Euros which seemed high. We were sent to another line to pay then back to check in. Then our flight was 45 minutes delayed leaving. Fortunately the pilot got us in to Zurich only 20 Mon late. Just typical "never know what's gonna happen"."
Cons: "Flight significantly delayed so as to almost miss my onward flight to SFO."
Pros: "Really impressed with the Austrian air staff representatives. Especially the folks at the ticket/checkin counter"
Cons: "That I did not fly this airlines before. They will be first on my list from now on."
Cons: "My Swiss flight from Stuttgar via Zurich to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."
Cons: "The airplane came late, delaying our trip. Despite that, the luggage would not come, and the claims office was ridiculous (despite of the destination being within 1 hour of drive from the airport, it took us 24 hours of our short vacation trip to deal with luggage). It seems that LH has these problems regularly, and they don't seem to care; I guess we'll have to try someone else to avoid suffering the same problem every time. The employees already knew the luggages are in a mess, and so were the claims. When taking LH, we have to accommodate luggage delay into our planning."
Pros: "We had a friendly conversation about our travels. The lady explained the entire baggage process clearly. The security folks were equally friendly. Just a real nice experience at the Lugano airport."
Cons: "Not one thong!"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendant. (I think his name was Stephen?)"
Cons: "Plane took off and landed late.. Few amenities near the gate. Odd procedure to have everyone go through security into waiting area."
Pros: "Helpful service, decent food."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Pros: "The plane arrived at destination ahead of schedule."
Cons: "€40 for a single 12 kg checked bag--that could have been gate checked? Seems excessive to this traveler."
Cons: "Delayed flight after an already long flight from the states"
Cons: "Although AU blamed late arrival of the plane from Russia, fact is that the plane was at least one hour at the dock before boarding and the AU team was just extremely slow to get boarding done. We were all invited 45 minutes before boarding to board, when apologies were already offered for the slight delay, which turned into 1.5 hour overall. Worst is the lack of communication during the 45 minute wait, for which I have little understanding seeing many older people clearly suffering."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Pros: "Everything was fine - short flight"
Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "to small seats"
Pros: "Great flight! Excellent service! Excellent food and beverages! Would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "Too many customers use more than their fair share of the overhead space. A lot of passengers placed their luggage and their personal item above. This left those of use who use only our fair alottment searching for a place for what we fairly should be allowed to use."
Pros: "Best take off, Best Fight, Perfect Landing...!!!"
Cons: "Diner was tasty...but, no breakfast... would have been great..!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendents on Austrian engaging and charming crew"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "My luggage was lost again It is the second time in a row that happens"
Pros: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."
Cons: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."
Pros: "The good and service"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Cons: "Sarted 90 minutes late because there was no crew available for this flight. In the cabin we later learned that they had to keep their legal rest times. The issue I have, why was there no information as soon as this issue became clear ... lets say the evening before the flight?Why make everyone arrive at 5am at an airport if you know 12 hours earlier there will be a 90 minute delay?"
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Cons: "A bigger plane."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick seats for my fiance and I and when we arrived at the gate, they had changed my seat without any advance notification"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "The plane was very old. It had cigarette ash tray in the armrests and bathrooms. It also only had three screens to watch movies. The headphone jack did not work properly and you could not hear the movie well. There were no screens in the chairs in front."
Pros: "crew was good. plane was clean"
Cons: "terrible entertainment option. plane interior was old and only way to have entertainment was using my own device, which was a phone and has a small screen. on the way back it was great"
Cons: "Had to sit next to someone that was so big she had to put up the arm seat and sit on half my seat. Thank god I’m 110 but sitting next to the window made me very claustrophobic."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats could be a bit wider"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Cons: "Flight delayed, interior of aircraft was deteriorating"
Pros: "Included drink and pretzels. Free carry on and seat."
Cons: "First of all, the line to check in was extremely long and the employees were rude. When I put my bags through the check out they stopped me and said I had to throw away my cologne because it was too large. However, on the Spirit Airlines I had no problem whatsoever. Will never fly with American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and pleasant"
Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"
Cons: "Felt crowded for such a long flight, but the flight crew was great."
Pros: "WiFi was on the flight. Free with TMobile."
Cons: "Easy and fast flight"
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."
Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "Great service. The staff was great."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Pros: "The staff were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When I called the emergency number, I was put on hold and charge by my wireless carrier for international call and no one answered the call."
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "Free wine Great Movies Great food including ice cream!!! Free pillow, blanket, and headphones!!"
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Pros: "It was not a finnair flight.... I actually flew on American Airlines. The flight was a little bumpy. The captain did a great job of keeping us informed of things going on! The crew were awesome!!!"
Cons: "I didn't like that up until the day before I thought i was flying Finnair and was trying to checkin with finnair onlt to find out it's American Airlines i was flying. Very confusing but I figured it out"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. The terminal was crowded and there was no clear line to board."
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Cons: "My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around"
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."
Cons: "Uncomfortable; charged $50 for checking bags only to see them checked for others for free at the gate. Seat selection on our three flights that day were ignored on 2 of tge floghts."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped and the cabin was very hot for the entire flight to the point I couldn't sleep."
Cons: "Had to wait on the plane for an hour before takeoff for a 2.5 hr flight."
Pros: "The food was really good."
Cons: "Temperature in the plane was way too hot. No AC plug anymore on Swiss planes. This is a really big problem as their entertainment system is not optimal. There is of course USB but does not allow to charge a laptop. Leg space is a nightmare (I’m 1m96). Other airlines are better"
Cons: "1.5 delay and no help offered to make my connection and not miss it."
Pros: "Very smooth ride"
Cons: "Foos was mediocre"
Pros: "Everything was okay. No complaints as such."
Cons: "It took a while for the plane to take off after boarding.m"
Pros: "Flight attendants fixed my meal issues. Plenty of movies to pick from."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me select a seat at check-in, meal selection only worked for return flight, and the airline confirmation number provided by Kayak wasn't accepted by United. Kayak referred me to Swiss Air's website rather than United's. The whole check-in process was a convoluted mess when I've never had any issue with other airlines. I'm a slender guy with broad shoulders and the middle seat felt very crowded when surrounded by medium build people. Didn't manage to sleep a bit on an 8 hr red-eye flight."
Cons: "would like fruit as desert, not ice cream."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "It’s existance. Informative capt."
Cons: "Late almost 3 hours. Sketchy bev service. 50 seat RJ."
Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "An early departure!"
Pros: "There was vegetarian options in the food and it was good."
Cons: "I could not initially check in online since the flight was operated by United. It would have been good for the ticketing agent to tell me I should contact United and give the United Confirmation number. Also the crew were somewhat tired and even seemed a bit irritable. They wanted as few questions as possible."
Cons: "You failed to properly put me on a plane"
Pros: "The crew on board was very nice."
Cons: "The Flight itinerary said Swiss Airlines but it was actually United Airlines. I almost missed my flight. How is this possible."
Pros: "Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport"
Cons: "My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me."
Pros: "Direct with a great price!"
Cons: "Food was just ok....."
Cons: "I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Agent took an hour trying to figure out how to check me due to the connecting flight being under a different carrier. This is clearly something I couldn’t do anything about. kayak allowed me to book a flight and expect that no matter the number of carriers, there should not be an issue tying the connection with the other flight at the time of check-in. Because of the delay, my husband and I sat apart on am 8 hour flight and because we both were assigned middle seats, no one wanted to sswitch with us. The check in staff was very unfriendly and seemed stressed and overworked. United needs to ramp up on resources quick. The flight crew were very unpleasant. It was just the worst of all flights."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good dinner, friendly personnel and good entertainment choices"
Cons: "We were delayed, apparently due to missing luggage. They estimated 10min but it probably took over a half hour. This affected our connecting flight."
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "Everything the flight but the food was satisfactory with United and not accompanied with food"
Cons: "Food not satisfied or accompanying with ex food because portion was to small"
Pros: "Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight."
Cons: "Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access."
Cons: "My 1st class seat was broken but the food was excellent as was the service and we arrived early."
Pros: "Usual United Corp mentality Overbook flites change your itinary leave you stranded with no connection spend nite in airport"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "United check-in at IAD was chaotic. Worst process I have ever seen."
Pros: "Constantly getting beverage service and so many movies and shows to choose from."
Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the area was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that before boarding they offered to check peoples bags for free because so many people were trying to take ridiculous sized bags onto the plane. I always pay to check my bag . That process took for ever but we did still arrive on time."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Pros: "It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience."
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Pros: "That I got a refund, although that should be a given"
Cons: "Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight ! This was our connecting flight so we have to stay there (Newark) till the next day 6pm with our own expenses."
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Cons: "The boarding process is an absurdly disorganized, terrible process. Don't encourage people to line up if there is no room in the terminal for them to do so. Food was also pathetic, especially compared to European competitors on the same route."
Pros: "All but one crew member were very friendly and energetic. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "The plane did not have modern amenities, like a phone charger. No free Wifi. The seats were old, so the cushions were lifeless and uncomfortable. Leg room was pitiful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive crew, good food, entertainment system worked well (though my wife's did not)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Newark, which resulted in a frantic attempt to make our connection. We made it, but the luggage did not - not a great way to start off our honeymoon."
Cons: "Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused."
Pros: "Economy plus room"
Cons: "The flight was not Swiss as I booked it. It was operated by United. It was over 45 minutes late boarding and over 2 hours late leaving. Tone of people were checking in at the gate and thus didn't pay extra for economy plus. There were loud and inappropriate passengers and the flight crew didn't do anything about them. I will avoid United at all costs the next time I travel...truly."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Terrible food"
