Pros: "The crew was super pleasant and friendly on this small plane. The flight was quick and smooth. The snack on board was new and enjoyable, not just pretzels."
Cons: "The flight was delayed coming to Muskegon causing me to really rush to my connection in Chicago. This was a small plane so there was no charging abilities or WiFi."
Cons: "There was no WiFi on this flight, and I count on being able to communicate, read through and respond to emails. For me, it's the beginning of my work week when I fly into the EU."
Cons: "I checked on Brussels and united about baggage rules and was very rudely surprised that I had to pay to check my luggage. And will have to on the way back. Has never happened before, pretty upset."
Pros: "Airplane, staff,"
Cons: "Meal. Options contain a high amount of cheese and all in my family are lactose intolerant. So a long trip with only drinks"
Pros: "Good plane good entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Attendants could not put could together. I bought business ckass tickets to my daughter and her husbandfie their honeymoon. They could not use the business lounge: when they arrived they were told that they needed to wait in front of the boarding gate. They waited two hours asking many times why they could not get their seats. They were ordered to stand by and wait to be called. Finally they insisted and they got two sits but not side by side. It was too late to use the business class lounge. What a shame. Food was so basic. Noodles overcooked with few veggies that all. Cabin attendants we're stressed and rude"
Pros: "Great service from crew"
Cons: "Good but too little"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Lufthansa punted to United."

Cons: "Meal was just ok"
Cons: "Food was inedible. Both of us got sick on the plane."
Pros: "Check in and boarding went very smoothly. The crew was very attentive. They came through the cabin several times with the drink cart. And after dinner was served, gave everyone a bottle of water. Good choice of movies, food was good and the light breakfast was actually very filling. Excellent croissants. Overall great flight."
Cons: "Long flight but that is to be expected"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had on a plane. Entertainment and internet down for half the flight after a delay at the airport for maintenance. Finally had United app. No free WiFi."
Cons: "I was exiting your airplane bathroom and my wife was entering when the flight attendant placed her arm in front of my wife and said, “I’m sorry but I’m working so that means I have dibs on this bathroom.” She then entered the bathroom and shut the door on my wife’s face. I was furious and speechless to witness such frank rude behavior and horrible customer service. I would like to think that United Airlines prides itself on better customer service than this. My wife and I have other choices when we fly and we will certainly think twice before we fly United Airlines again."

Pros: "Excellent service by the flight staff"
Cons: "It was cold on the plane at times"

Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"

Pros: "Good entertainment and food options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "I haven’t flown international in a while and things seemed to have improved quite a bit in all the above categories."
Cons: "The seats back was designed too soft, so every time I grabbed my laptop which I stored in the pocket in front of me, the person seating in front thought I was kicking/kneeing her. I also experienced the discomfort from someone getting an item from the seat pocket behind me. Not great for long flights when trying to sleep!"
Pros: "Very helpful accommodating wife with wheelchair. Thank you."
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Check in via kiosk was difficult for me, a senior citizen. Entertainment was very limited."
Cons: "The food was particularly poor this flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Bathroom was dirty"
Pros: "The pasta was great."
Cons: "Halfway through the flight the entertainment froze and could no longer have access."
Cons: "It was a mess. 5 hour delay. No re-booking. A complete sh*t show. No way to change this thing, as you guys are peddling overpriced consolidator tickets. A mess. Will probably NEVER book via KaiYak again. Horrible."
Pros: "Departure from Newark was delayed but the man at the desk, an entertaining guy, kept us informed."
Cons: "I wish my plane was on time and we didn't have to board twice! I wish you would refund my missed train ticket and $100 taxi ride that occurred because of the delay!"
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "I don't love to fly, so I wasn't thrilled about a 7 hour flight. Actually, the flight itself went well, good food (for an airplane), staff was VERY nice, and boarding was easy enough. My issue unfortunately the people sitting behind me with 2 kids under age 3-4 years old. One of the kids screamed and cried for probably close to 5 hours. I didn't sleep at all. At one point, he cried for a continuous 2 hours while he kicked my seat. I felt like the staff should have asked if they could help, maybe suggest walking him around, etc. The child must have had ear pain, he cried constantly. I felt so badly for him."
Pros: "The econmy class seat was just fine for a cross atlantic flight from Chicago to Paris and I am almost 60! Good entertainment and service. Seats were comfortable. Language was not a barrier. Good value because it was non-stop and a no hassle plane changing circus! Thanks."
Cons: "Food was airline style and could have used some fresh fruits and bakery goods. But overall it was very passable."
Pros: "Nice vegetarian meal option. Good food and service overall."
Cons: "It wasn't a Lufthansa flight. Both our connecting and international flights were United. We specifically bought the ticket because we have had excellent exeriences on Lufthansa. We were dissapointed to find out we were actually flying United. Entertainment system was down so there were no movies the entire way and we were seated in an exit row where the seats did not recline. Extra leg space was nice but I would have declined the seat if I had know the chair wouln't recline."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Food was fine."
Cons: "Relatively small plane for a transatlantic flight, so a little crapmed with 3x3 seating. Delay in boarding."
Pros: "Nothing except when it was over."
Cons: "Two aborted takeoffs. Four plus hour delay. Missing all my connections. Wine dumped on me. Insufficient food vouchers. The absolute worst customer service trying to receive compensation."
Pros: "I liked that the stewardess in the muskegon to Chicago flight gave us the gate numbers that we needed since there was a delay and we were very pressed with time."
Cons: "The weather delay but there is nothing to control that yet..."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Entertainment; only 2 lavatories for approximately 40 business class passengers"
Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"
Pros: "My last flight to Europe was on Lufthansa and I have to say, this was better. Decent food, efficient staff, relatively comfortable plane."
Cons: "They were a bit brusque, but not rude."
Pros: "Did a good job of keeping us hydrated during the flight"
Cons: "The seltzer water is plain not lemon flavored as advertised in the magazine"
Pros: "Rud staff"
Cons: "I made cost effective arrangements to fly with a friend at the same flight of United. We checked in together but unfortunately we were given seperate seats. The staff in the plane were completely ignorant and not helpful AT ALL. I am very disappointed and definitely will prefer another airline in the future"
Pros: "Flight attendants provided great service - really made an effort."
Cons: "Pilot inability/unwillinngess to explain reason for 1 hour 45 minute delay departing SFO. Mechanical problem, disclosed just 30-45 minutes after take-off necessiated unplanned landing in Chicago, where we waited another 2 hours before finally taking off to Paris."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable and nice this plane was. I had only ever flown United (see my below comment about codesharing) domestic, and the planes had always been old and kind of cramped. This international flight was much nicer!"
Cons: "I didn't like that this flight was code shared. I paid a bit more to fly Lufthansa, but disn't realize that it was going to be a United flight. I also thought the captain could have given a bit more information and updates during the flight."
