Pros: "-maintenance had to fix an issue that the team was not transparent about for 2.5 hours. 0at least boarding happened swiftly -the male crew member was GREAT but the female crew members two of them were very short, rude, and not there to bring comfort to customers -chicken meal was tasty, but made both me and my father sick. Muffin for breakfast was mediocre as well -tv was good, but touch screen sometimes doesn't work."
Pros: "Clean, safe short flights"
Cons: "The 30 minute layover was close"
Pros: "Boarding was great. As it was a short there was no entertainment. I would have chosen N/A bit that wasn’t an option hence the one star."
Cons: "I wish there was an option of a sandwich vice sweet or pretzels."
Pros: "From start to finish there were no hiccups. It was a pleasant journey."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with luggage and got email saying I am at economy class. When got to check in told me I have economy light and I had to pay again for luggage. Dissaster. Contacted priceline- did not care."
Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."

Cons: "That the plane was an hour late..."
Pros: "Not much!"

Cons: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Cons: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."
Cons: "I remember a time when these flights had entertainment on them..."
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Pros: "Nothing! I ended up losing my plane ticket because of Austrian Airlines lack of empathy with me."
Cons: "First I lost my United Airlines flight because of security reasons. I checked in Guatemala but I was delayed at the Airport's security too long, it was beyond my control. Consequently I got to the boarding gate right when they were closing. Consequently I lost all my connections from then on. The United Airlines was very empathizing with me and my situation and they issued me other boarding passes at no cost. United Airlines suggested me to tell the Austrian Airlines about what happened and they were sure the Austrian Airlines would understand but they were wrong; no understanding on behalf of the Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Everything. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "The crew was very very nice and flight was very quick."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, music nor tv :/"
Pros: "Left on time - arrived early"
Cons: "Cake was the same thing they served from Kosice to Vienna . There must be something better than that. It was a tad dry."
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"
Cons: "nothing I didn't like"

Cons: "No tv, maps or entertainment at all."
Pros: "The venue was overall ok"
Pros: "No stops"
Cons: "seats too cramped"
Pros: "very short layover and my check luggage made it all the way home with no problems"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant, calm, and efficient."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour on a flight of 1 hour during lunch time and neither a snack during the flight."
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Pros: "Made it there safely."
Cons: "Not much space in the seats on the flight especially for 10 straight hours."
Pros: "Nice crew, lots of entertainment options (movies especially). Seats recline very far back, nice..."
Cons: "Ground crew was a big bottleneck and Austrian security did not help."
Pros: "Good food and drinks,great movies"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom,needs upgrade too."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "First fight was canceled to Vienna diverted to Turkish air to flight into Turkey. In the US was diverted to Milwaukee for 2 hours after already being on a 12 hour flight. Then missing our landing time in Chicago by 5 hours."
Pros: "The new premium economy seats were really nice."
Cons: "Check the pillows in premium economy for any stains. I had a pillow with several 2-inch yellow/red stains on it. There were no more pillows of those pillows, so the attendant gave me one from business class."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work neither did the flight attendants. They sat in the back and quite literally did nothing, no juice and water. Worst service ever. I'll fly Delta from now on. American what happened to you?"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late - due to not enough water! American always has some excuse. On an overnight flight where people like to sleep, the pilot shouldn't be making an announcement one and 1/2 hours before landing, waking everyone up! Movie selection is very old."
Cons: "Communicating rules such as not going through the business class to loop around to the other aisle of the coach class is definitely acceptable however the tone in communicating this should never sound condescending and patronizing, esp over the PA. Flight staff shld refine her communication skills."
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and not very attentive. Although one person did get sick and caused the crew to be shorthanded that’s no excuse to not smile and be friendly. I wanted to throw away some beverage cups and no flight attendant came through for almost an hour. The food sucked."
Cons: "Much better food, even though we were economy class the food could have been better. Also, I was told and researched that there would be an AC outlet at my seat and all there was is a USB port. I rented a portable CPAP machine and couldn’t use it. Cost me $120."
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "The selection of movies and games."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the arm rest did not go up and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The meal."
Cons: "You have no comfort at you seats"
Cons: "The whole flight from Philadelphia to Rome was on American Airlines, not British Air. This was confusing at first and made it difficult to know what airline desk I needed to check into, but once that was clear it all went smoothly. The dinner was mediocre and the breakfast terrible."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Cons: "I’m still hungry and incredibly tired. Nobody buys their main cabin extra product, so there’s many empty seats. Ripe for the families that don’t want to pay extra to sit together. Those families bring kids, screaming kids to a section filled with higher fare paying customers. The FA in my section had such big hips, that she knocked my shoulder EVERYTIME she walked by. Not only that, everytime she did the courtesy reach over to grab empty cups from the middle seat, she hit me with her trash bag. Woulda been fine had I been awake, but I was trying to sleep in between the bouts of screaming from the devil possessed kids."
Pros: "Ease of entry."
Cons: "Personal space is very, very limited and food is terrible for an international flight."
Pros: "Things were all right on schedule and the plane was very updated and clean. I was thrilled with the movie selections and the food was better than average plane food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were in rough shape, would have liked to see those serviced in-flight so those of us using the space to do night-time routines like brushing our teeth and washing faces didn't have to deal with someone else's mess."
Pros: "Entertainment choices, no additional charge for wine, food was good"
Cons: "we were packed in like sardines on American airways ..NOT British airways. I’ve flown overseas on European flights before and there is more attention to comfort. We sat in front of the lavatory and could not sleep because every time someone used it, the light flashed in our eyes and the flush was quite loud. I paid extra for the seats we had but did not know they were right by noisy bright rest room."
Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."
Pros: "We did not fly to Rome on British airways. We flew Delta. Get it together"
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "Reasonably large leg room and overhead"
Cons: "Five times they tried to get us to pay for a seat assignment (even after they had assigned seats). Paying $32 for "priority" boarding is rediculous?"
Pros: "Non stop flight & friendly crew"
Cons: "No foot rest & seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and we departed on time and arrived on schedule-fllight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks were ok but main meal could have been better- suggest u go back to box meal such as a sandwich and piece of fruit."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Great crew and new plane."
Cons: "The seats are so small and almost no leg room. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "In flight service was terrific. Cubby areas were somewhat cramped. Was expecting more room."
Cons: "The food selection was great but the food itself was over cooked. Disappointing."
Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy Free movies"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Pros: "The cabin crew were absolutely outstanding."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Cons: "The plane was very outdated and the food was poor. Flight attendants were very rude."
Pros: "Boeing 777 was very comfortable and quiet. Power provided to each seat. Food and drink were readily available."
Cons: "They had to reboot the entertainment system 2 times to get it working which took over an hour. Had to redo seat assignments. Did not like bogus 79 and 129 dollar seat assignments that were designed to just extract more money from the customer."
Cons: "First the flight entertainment was terrible for an international flight, no internet because it was a old plane. Some video monitors were terrible color and resolution."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. In fight crew was great."
Cons: "Apparently you can make a reservation for a seat and AA is not required to honor it. They told us that you reserve a seat but you get your seat assignment when you check in to your flight. Apparently many people can make a reservation for one seat and the first person to check in gets it. My husband and I were very upset when we found this out. Especially since we went through many hoops to get a good seat assignment."
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees. Older plane missing some of the common amenities like wifi and individual tvs. The cabin Tv was small."
Pros: "I have never felt so smushed in to a space for so long."
Cons: "Space between the seats"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "Too crowded. The service was horrible with cranky attendants. I had to clear my own food tray. Inconsistent and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Meal surprisingly good. Crew friendly, professional, and efficient."
Cons: "Small seats 4 abreast--too close for any comfort for transatlantic flight. Would not fly this particular airplane again if possible."
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "It was just a stress and hassle free experience."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Nice 787"
Cons: "Very cramped no room to move. I can't believe the meals that were served. Very small portions. A slice of bread for breakfast. No butter just dry bread and coffee!!"
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Pros: "Excellent lounge experience preflight, plus the Signature Suite was right by our boarding gate so very handy. Flight was on time and service was excellent."
Pros: "New aircraft. Light dinner and breakfast was available. We didn’t expect them so we were surprised."
Cons: "Long line to check in at T1."
Pros: "Pro-free wine!"
Cons: "Can-food not the best..."
Cons: "Air canada regularly delayed. It’s their trademark"
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight. Boarding is a bit stressful because storage is eaten up quickly by other passengers. Great movie selection and decent food. Thank you!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "For coach the flight was comfortable. Had enough leg room but 8 hours on a plane is taxing under the best circumstances."
Cons: "The attendants were professional but didn't seem to find any joy in their work. The food was barely passable."
Pros: "Wine with dinner. A pillow and a blanket. Free ear buds."
Cons: "The food is atrocious. A nitrogen-wrapped muffin for breakfast? Too crowded. Check-in and boarding in Montreal was chaotic."
Pros: "The crew to Calgary was wonderful. Flights were on time. Airbus was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "The crew from Calgary to Toronto was average - not pleasant...."
Pros: "Seat is not too crowded"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the electric/USB outlets made all the difference! By the end of the flight, my phone was charged and I was ready to see Montreal!"
Cons: "Paying for seats."
Pros: "Very nice plane, great service and smooth flight."
Cons: "Special meal was horrible."
Pros: "I made the connection. I got to London on time,so did my luggage! The people with Air Canada are GREAT."
Cons: "I flew Air Canada the whole way. I checked in HOURS ahead of time. The first leg was delayed, but I made the second connection only to find that we had been "off loaded" which meant that even though we were on all the correct flights, we couldn't sit together anymore. We were put on the flight and all worked out, but I was not pleased!"
Pros: "The deleted meals request could not be remedied even with greater than four hours notice of THEIR mistake. No proper meals for a 15 Hour flight and no compensation."
Cons: "Get it right or make it right."
Pros: "Comfort of seats Crew's teamwork"
Cons: "It would be great if you could accept debit cards on board for purchases."
Pros: "Nothing to like, just fair"
Cons: "3 toilets broken, unfriendly crew, disorder on bording, brake my luggage, I think is enough to unlike them"
Cons: "Flight was late so I missed my connection. Then my luggage was delayed by five hours behind me. Generally poor service."
Cons: "Had to pay for seat assignments when reservation made or no seat reservations. Not true on all airlines. Delta let us pick seats for free when the reservation was made. Husband had wanted a window seat and ended up with a middle seat. No free snacks just drinks"
Pros: "a lot of leg room, fast boarding, nice screen, cool window with adjustable darkness."
Cons: "all my food were not covered when hostess delivered the tray, salad was missing, apparently it fell into the trolley while she pulled the tray out. and then i couldn't eat it because it was frozen. food quality was just really bad; whenever the crew passed by they were speaking really loud like to the other side of the valley, probably not necessary; the seat itself has a fancy look but the cushion is not comfortable at all, couldn't really rest one's head on it as it would just keep sliding sidewards . another thing that the airline can't really help- baby crying & screaming all the time and playing toys with music, couldn't get any sleep at all... perhaps a "kids zone" like trains have would be good for planes.. ?"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Professional and attentive."
Cons: "The only real complaint I had was the over head compartment was much too high and I was too short to reach."
Pros: "mediocre food, satifactory"
Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "The children screaming 70 percent of the flight. The person in front of me throwing up. Just very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Same s above"
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Pros: "Yes, I like it"
Cons: "We could not book for large group, so we have to separate"
Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "Pretty much everything was a bad experience from start to finish. The flight was delayed a half an hour which is fine and can be understandable. The space in the seats was almost criminal for an 8 hour flight. Pretty the equivalent of having people shoulder to shoulder. Impossible to try and sleep on an overnight flight. During mid flight I noticed that I had a lot of trouble breathing and thought it was just me. My wife said the same thing to me and someone on the flight needed medical assistance for oxygen. It was extremely hot the whole flight with no ability to control the air flow which made it even worse. The entertainment selection was good however the device was almost unsable because it was very laggy and it wouldn't select what you wanted. It was easily the worst experience I had and I only really went into some of the details. Having trouble breathing was by far the worst part and I couldn't believe it. My flight back was glaringly better so I'm perplexed by why this was so bad."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and was quite organized."
Cons: "Flights get cancelled or delayed all the time so that's not what was so upsetting. It was the way we were informed about these delays. The staff were jest rude, making a bad experience even worse. Then they lost my bags, couldn't track them, couldn't tell me where they were. And I was flying out to another country for a tour next day so that was very inconvenient. I won't be flying with this airline again. They don't know what good customer service is."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Food, low quality and low choice entertainment"
Pros: "Great food and great service. Not much leg room in the 'free' seats but the flight crew allowed us to move to an empty row so we had lots of room. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Great Crew. The entertainment package was very nice."
Pros: "One bag did not arrive."
Pros: "Cost of the ticket."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, bad food (a slice of greasy banana bread for breakfast?), lights on too late. AC needs to alert travelers to the differences between Rouge and regular flights."
Pros: "Overall, it was a nice flight. The domestic and express flights had no food on offer (for free)..."
Cons: "Beyond the absurd 12 hour layover in Vancouver, upon my arrival in Atlanta, my luggage was lost. I'm still waiting on a call saying it was located."
Pros: "Staff are wonderful."
Cons: "Not comfortable compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Security and.boarding were pretty smooth. Flight was not full so extra seats were available. This flight was direct Toronto to Rome which was nice, previous flights stopped in JFK which meant additional security and immigration screening"
Cons: "One of the entertainment terminals wasn't working, switched seats"
Cons: "No food on a five hour flight. Had to buy food this is nickeling and dimming people. They made me miss my connecting flight we sat around in tarmack and no explanation given."
Cons: "It was very cold!"
Cons: "Temperature too cold in the airplane Ipads to rent (no screens)"
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "2 seats together"
Cons: "no wine with dinner awful service felt we were bothering the staff movies on AC app were awful food was awful damaged brand new luggage and said they didn't cover the damage awful awful awful"
Cons: "Flight turned around after 2 hours, we were delayed 7.5 hours and missed an entire day in Rome. Instead of landing at 8 AM, we landed closer to 4 PM."
Cons: "This flight was booked as a Lufthansa flight, but the actual flight was United. It was OK, but not the service or comfort when I flew Lufthansa in the past."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not navigate. Food was too salty. Crew was not very pleasant-annoyed when I was in the bathroom and missed service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Bathrooms remained clean the entire flight."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Ran out of croissants in the morning."
Pros: "Amazing service, great crew. love was our stewardess and she took good care and watched over my daughter."
Cons: "Not much, truly an amazing experience"
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick"

Cons: "The seating is AWFUL for economy section. For this reason I will never take a flight over 2 hours again. A nine hour flight is sheer torture!!!! Plus I was freezing the whole time, even with a jacket with a hood, two blankets, two pillows. Just a horrible situation."

Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."
Pros: "Everything went as planned. Professional friendly crew with good rapport! Cabin felt spacious and seats were just right. The food and entertainment packages were quality, appropriate and functioning. The crew put us on a strict schedule allowing us time to sleep and refresh. Toiletries clean and no lines. Just an overall lovely flight!"
Pros: "Best flight to Italy from the states for me in 4 visits over 18 year span. Very efficient and courteous attendants, above average food ( for airline food), complimentary wine, even the seating was not as cramped as I have endured ( on NW Airlines- worst flight experience ever in 2005.)"
Cons: "I have not one complaint"
Pros: "This was one of the worst domestic flights I’ve ever taken. United Airlines had a maintenance problem I’m delayed this plane by one hour every hour for six hours keeping us captive at the airport !! Horrible service horrible Airline I will try to avoid this at all costS."

Cons: ""Free WiFi, not free.""
Cons: "Overhead light did not work properly."
Pros: "Loved the fast boarding and quick flight! The crew did their best to inform us about our various delays."
Cons: "Cmon dudes, just plan ahead. Don't leave us to taxi on the tarmac for an hour before take off, only to do the same once we land! This shouldn't take quite so long."

Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Food was very good, almost restaurant-level. Wine selection was good as well"
Cons: "While on the plane at the gate, had to wait 20 mins for someone to hang my jacket (had to ask and the person came back 5 mins later) despite the fact that the attendant immediately checked on the guy next to me when he sat down, who apparently had status with United (attendant ignored me). I guess a $7,000 fare doesn't warrant special attention. I had to ask the same attendant for other items at times, but he'd forget and I'd have to ask someone else. Also, the seats were decent yet a bit crowded IMHO. I'm 5'10" and my feet were crammed up against the front of the space when fully reclined. The width of the seat area was a bit tight as well. Finally, they have 2 heads (toilets) that serve both the business class section ( maybe 50 people) as well as the front of economy. One of the pilots was waiting at the same time as me and agreed that it was a pretty questionable layout for the number of seats covered. All in all, not my favorite airline and nothing on this trip so far changed that view."
Cons: "Waited for clearance to take off for about 10-15 minutes on the tarmac."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."
Cons: "THe sits where very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."
Cons: "Unreliability of airline service, 7-hour delay! Food is horrible."
Cons: "I'm still at the airport !!!"
Pros: "Getting to Rome on time"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional. Kept us informed as to why we were delayed."
Cons: "The 6 hr maintenance delay. Food could have been better."
Cons: "Just awful. Original flight was cancelled, delaying my travel schedule. Airlines did a horrible job giving us timely updates on flight status, thus hindering us in trying to find alternate flights or travel options. Upon arrival in Rome almost 24 hours later, almost half of the flight's passengers had bags that didn't even mare it onto the plane. I was among them. What carelessness, and stupidity on the part of united employees. Horrible inconvenience, worst travelling experience that I've ever had!"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I purchased a direct flight and was not told the flight was cancelled until I arrived. I was put on two transfers and arrived to my destination 10 hours later than planned. I want my money back."
