Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"

They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Too late."
Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Cons: "Wasn't able to online check-in thus losing my window seat 21A I had selected."
Cons: "For some reason there were 4 really young children seated all in the same area. Kids will be kids, but perhaps spreading them out wouldn’t make one particular area so loud and disturbing. Boarding the plane I a more orderly way would also help."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"

Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Cons: "Lufthansa flight from Florence to Frankfurt was 45 mins late, so a large group of passengers had 30 mins to transfer from plane to bus to terminal to security to gate on other side of airport. They offered no assistance other than to say run, which we did the whole way. When we reached the gate less than 5 minutes after scheduled takeoff they said flight was closed and next flight was 18 hours later. Not one passenger successfully made the transfer. It took over 2 hours to get hotel and food vouchers, and we were forced to stay in airport Holiday Inn with now sweaty clothes and no luggage. Everyone was furious, and the entire incident could have been easily avoided in many ways, including by delaying the flight 5 mins or by providing passenger transportation at any point in the 30 minute transfer from the Lufthansa A arrival gate and the Lufthansa Z departure gate."
Pros: "Food was great; I appreciate the frequent water/juice service."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Cons: "Missed so there was none Spent night in Minic"
Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "nice crew!"
Cons: "Seat hardly reclines at all."
Pros: "There was plenty of room, great staff, no worries whatsoever."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"
Pros: "Great flight and a super smoth landing in strong southerly winds."
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "DREADFUL seats for the price. Small, coffin-like affairs packed together like proverbial sardines. I can't believe there are still middle seats for this price on a modern wide body aircraft. I was on the inside and had to step over my neighbor. The food choices were so unappetizing that I opted not to eat. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with United, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Pros: "It was clean and it was on time."
Cons: "No problems average flight slight delays."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "More variety in entertainment would be good;"
Cons: "Crew's attitude is awful, they need to learn how to provide service."

Cons: "The flight was about 45 minutes delayed but it was okay with me since I had connection flight and I had a long connecting time."
Pros: "It was trouble free - check in was quick and efficient in Budapest, boarding was no trouble, and transfer in Frankfurt problem-free. Cabin crew were good, flight was nice."
Cons: "The lost luggage for 4 days and a lot of thing were missing from the suitcases."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."
Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"
Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."
Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."
Pros: "The friendly crew were good."
Cons: "Insufficient legroom, limited drink options and dirty toilets. The flight was booked completely and hence the toilets were always occupied and unclean."
Cons: "Little food"
Pros: "Perfect flight..."
Cons: "Seat not that comfortable"
Pros: "A flight without screen is a long flight."
Cons: "If Canada wants to charge an ETA fee, then this should come up when booking the tickets. Finding out at the airport then being subjected to a mandatory payment process on my smartphone with zero help from Air Canada is just classless. And the crew almost appear delighted communicating the fact that failure to do this means I will not get on the plane. Like expensive plane tickets are bought on charity. I even tried to cancel the ticket and your agents, Calvin and a lady who did not have a badge gave me a card with a 1800 no. that was never answered."
Pros: "Bad food"
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean, seats comfortable, staff helpful"
Cons: "Food was mediocre. An upcharge for a better meal would have been appreciated. Flight from Greece delayed, but again, staff was helpful."

Cons: "very long wait for baggage"
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "On time, nice staff"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Awesome service, delicious food, spacious seats in economy, great friendly staff!! Can't wait for my next flight."
Pros: "The fact that there was no one sitting by me was fab. Through man on priority check in desk was very helpful getting me the assistance I needed"
Cons: "More choice of meal. Getting special.assistance.upon arrival at.Istanbul airport first outbound flight was hard. I nearly fainted as I had to stand for so long."
Pros: "The crew and the food"
Cons: "The entertaiment selection. Should get better movie, TV and news selection"
Cons: "Provide power outlets at seats. The remote control provided at the seat isn't at all user-friendly. I finally figured it out, but more people than not would have trouble using it. Also, basic features like turning on/off the reading light or calling a flight attendant shouldn't be on this complicated remote. Finally, the seating in economy plus or whatever this class is called needs to be rethought. (aircraft: Boeing 787)"
Cons: "Food could be better."
Cons: "Much better"
Pros: "Direct flight. Crew was good. I got home alive."
Cons: "The crew made far too many unnecessary announcements and the sound system was friggin loud. Everyone on the plane jumped and cringed everytime there was another completely unnecessary announcement. The seating area in coach was also a bit crammed. The flight was full as were the overhead bins so i had to stow everything at my feet and there was barely any room."
Pros: "Boarding process was very quick."
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. There was nothing."
Cons: "Received a text that changed the flight departure to a later time. Missed the flight. Cost me baanaadditional"
Pros: "Updates on status via email and sms"
Cons: "Choices not AWS international, too UK centric, Crew was superficial and curt"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Food was amazing too!"
Cons: "Delay time."
Pros: "Comfortable clean food was tasty and appreciated the complimentary drinks"
Cons: "Offered bottles of water...not just small cups"
Pros: "New planes, good food, professional crew."
Pros: "Crew did their best to deal with the multiple delays."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Limoncello Cream and tape measure."
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Pros: "Seat and space in plane"
Cons: "the old part of Nairobi In Airport... JKIA .....is appalling and the boarding procedure very tedious and uncomfortable Inflight entartainement is as old as the plane... built in the 80's"
Pros: "Flight departed on time."
Cons: "The dinner ok. I didn’t like the breakfast at all."
Pros: "The Airbus was a real nice ride, with a great entertainment choices."
Cons: "The only thing was the two hour delay getting out of Heathrow. But that was for safety reasons, a bag had been loaded that shouldn't have been."
Cons: "stuffy staff, not helpful, horrible seating - definitely don't see things from customer point of view. Will never fly BA again"
Pros: "Excellent customer care"
Cons: "Hand sanitizers would have been great."
Cons: "The entertainment system kept bugging out on me and would not work correctly."
Cons: "No power plugs/usb ports. Very small, poor quality screen. Not much bigger than my iPhone."
Cons: "Ancient, filthy plane, rude personnel, awful food, and probably the worst boarding experience for premium travellers imaginable at Nairobi airport"
Cons: "Frumpy and unkempt crew. No longer offer complimentary coffee or anything. You must pay for everything. Had to give my carryon bag even though there was lots of room inside the plane"
Cons: "Seats were too small..tight fit."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an old plane. No electrical outlets. The entertainment system didn’t work. Sure didn’t bend over backwards to make us happy. 1 cup of coffee. I did get a refill but only because I got up and asked someone. I will sure avoid British Airways. We took 3 long flights with them and they were all on that old 747. They need to update."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The seat space .It is very uncomfortable to have the person in front of you in your lab for 8 hours. Continued with Icelandair home and much more space."
Cons: "Flight LCY-ZRH (19:35-22:10) departed delayed by >1h, we had to wait in boarding staircase standing with 9mth old baby for 45mins. Due to late take-off we were too late to land in ZRH as runway had already closed. Diverted to Stuttgart, where no BA staff was on the ground to deal with and all services had already closed (~00:30). Basically ~50 customers were dumped at a place they didn’t want to be and no info on his BA wanted to deal with it was given. After 1 week still no info on compensation. And this wants to be a major carrier?"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "You can’t pay to pick a seat"
Pros: "The on board service was good"
Cons: "The check in service wasn't gd; staff not very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I found out as I was entering Nairobi Airport. The British Airways staff at JKIA were clueless regarding what to do with 200 passengers. It was chaotic, with no one appearing to know what options were available. It was a long night, and if my wife had not re-booked me on another flight out, I might still be there. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Heathrow is now so large that a layover of a bit over an hour is not sufficient to get comfortably from one gate area to another."
Cons: "My screen failed and was not able to work"
Cons: "Food just OK. Entertainment system outdated with very small screen. Return delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "Service, food, safety video"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Lots of space. Decent food."
Cons: "Mediocre aircraft, dismissive crew. Nothing surprising from BA to be quite honest I shall continue to lower my expectations."
Cons: "Extremely old aircraft. Entertainment was terrible with old screens which had half the pixels missing, mapping was 1980s style. It's about time BA updated or got rid of these old planes. Seat would not recline as we were stuck in the very back row of economy. Very uncomfortable experience. BA, this is no longer good enough - relying on customer loyalty will no longer work!"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Flight delayed - wish the give us updates periodically Warm, aircon not strong for a hot day Young crew is a guy who does not seem to be a customer service oriented person"
Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."
Pros: "Did reasonably well for a large flight. Crew is courteous."
Cons: "The check-in ground crew does not appear knowledgeable nor cared for the details. We are a party of 5 with US and Canadian passports and Green cards which understandably the check-in process is not "standard." They should be more alert of the situation and help us along with the check-in process more appropriately instead of directly some of us one way and others another way and when pressed, they gave very unsatisfactory answers."
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Cons: "Not many choices on direct flights from Edinburgh to Shannon our final destination. Waste of time having to fly to London first for a connecting flight"
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing to make it stand out from the other providers(Flybe, Ryanair, easyJet) as all complimentary offerings have disappeared."
Cons: "The seats on this British Airways flight were so tight and pitched forward that my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I felt as if I was being launched forward the entire flight. Not comfortable or safe."
Pros: "Great food!"
Pros: "Civility in the boarding process, bathroom cleanliness and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Poor entertainment system and choice. Some parts of the main cabin were dirty. As an asthmatic, I tend to be quite sensitive to dust etc. The age of the plane. Some of the flight attendants seemed not as friendly on request of some, not all, service."
Pros: "The crew on the aircraft were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "Not BA's fault but Nairobi is probably one of the most uncomfortable airports. We paid to go into the Aspire Lounge but was surprised that BA do not have a lounge. We flew Premium Economy but didn't think we got that much extra for the amount paid. Breakfast was one breakfast bar and that was it."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time."
Cons: "No free alcoholic drinks. Seats are barely up to international standard - narrow, as is the aisle. Very poor quality food."
Pros: "Good service, lovely,approachable ,gorgeous personality-crew. I"
Cons: "Served some type of anything"
Cons: "I’m 6’3. My legs don’t fit in the provided space and I’m too tall for the head rest."
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Food. No food at all on board per the flight attendees"
Cons: "All of it except the flight crew. They were from Hungary and very polite and helpful. The rest of my experience was terrible. Will not fly UNAmerican again. Will NEVER fly to or via DFW again."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful. I volunteered to move so a mother could sit next to her 4 1/2 year old daughter. The flight attendant found me a seat with no other passenger. She also comped by glass of wine."
Cons: "I wish the flight was a bit longer so I could eat a bit."
Pros: "Pilot was Awesome"
Cons: "The crew was eh not very friendly"
Cons: "How about departing on time! Almost 3 hours after our advertised departure time is ridiculous!"
Cons: "Flight delayed twice and then had to wait on runway for take off"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "You cannot recline the seats."
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"
Pros: "Seat was 9k. Comfortable"
Cons: "Plane late to take off because caterer was late"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were more comfortable than other airline seats."
Cons: "American changed our seats to back of plane. No explanation."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. 2"
Pros: "Only the food on this trip was good. Everything else had issues."
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding at Miami. Agent did NOT speak clearly. Uncomfortable long walk outside uphill ramps and steps to board on the a tarmac. Purser’s PA system only worked occasionally. Most communications relayed from rear. My first class seat in row 3 was broken partially reclined."
Pros: "Flight was delayed multiple times, which was understandable. However, communication was so poor we nearly missed it when it finally took off. Wed received notice it was cancelled then were told we had to go to a different gate to rebook. We just happened to go back to recheck the gate as the last group was boarding. Very poorly handled. See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "American booted me out of First Class despite having upgraded me two days prior."
Pros: "Sat in exit and it"
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Pros: "They kept on schedule. We"
Cons: "I was not notified of flight changes and until I called the Airline my husband and I were intended to sit far apart. I booked this trip back in Jan. and we were supposed to be across the aisle from each other. We ended up in the last row of seats of both flights. We never knew of the changes until we tried to get boarding passes."
Cons: "I understand it happens,but after a long day of traveling it is very frustrating when the late night flight is delayed and you then have to sit in the plane on the ground for an extended period. Otherwise it was fine"
Cons: "I am not tall but there was no leg room. My knees were in the back of seat. And when passenger in front reclined???? Arggh"
Pros: "Flight was safe and uneventful"
Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Cons: "I am very frustrated that a single part could not be located in the early afternoon to allow the plane to fly. I will be late again for work and it seems to be American Airlines and not Delta that has all the delays or is late."
Pros: "economy plus was worth the money"
Cons: "Flight attendants horrible refused to serve drinks or snacks due to "turbulence" But there was no turbulence. Then when passengers complained they served water only and splashed it into cups on the trays instead of pouring it into cups and handing the cups to the passengers. Nasty people."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late leaving O'Hare."
Cons: "Missed because of first delay"
Cons: "Being so late"
Cons: "Do you even look at what happens after we pay for your services?"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival."
Cons: "My checked bag, which l paid $25.00 for, didn’t make it on the flight to Pittsburgh. It got there on another flight at 7:30 pm Monday night but no one from American Airlines did anything about trying to get it to me until 11:30 pm. As a result, while l stayed at a hotel only 30 miles from the airport, my bag wasn’t delivered until 2:00 am on Tues, more than 8 hours after l got there. And their website for supposedly checking on lost luggage, aa.com/bag status, is next to useless. It gives no useful information. Use the 800 # but state you want to talk with a human when answering the questions in their phone tree. I’ve had other experiences on AA over the last few years that lead me to question their commitment to customer service. I’ll be avoiding American Airlines as a travel option where other alternatives are available."
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."
Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Pros: "Seats are terrible. My back hurts after the journey. Leg room is bad too."
Cons: "The changing of terminals in Philadelphia but was not the airlines fault."
Pros: "That we were able to get a seat on this flight"
Cons: "It was very crowded and no room to really move. The flight was rough in taking off and landing."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Pros: "Friendly Crew, short and easy trip."
Cons: "I wish that there were tv's built in, entertainment."
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks included. Was able to get my bag checked for free and pay a decent price for a last minute emergency flight. Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "The price was more than I wanted to pay but it was not unreasonable."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "No gate available upon early arrival. Paying extra for aisle seats is ridiculous."
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane landed in Pittsburgh an hour and a half late because of mechanical issues. So that was inconvenient."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and i had a great seat."
Cons: "It wasnt a long flight so there was no entertainment and minimal food."
Pros: "Limited overhead bag storage. Gates changed to more crowded area. Felt like we were being herded onto the plane. Hurry up, etc. clear the aisles that sort of thing."
Pros: "short flight so I would not expect any particular issues."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. They were friendly and accommodating. Snacks were good and boarding was fast."
Cons: "We sat in Economy Plus. They said about how much more room we would have and there was more leg room. However you are still basically sitting on the person beside you. The seats are very tight and never very comfortable. It was easy for us to board but we sat at the gate a while and were a little late getting to our destination."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Plane was old and space was tight."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "No verbal announcements during boarding meant this flight had a very chaotic beginning. I cannot believe how tight the seats are on United's planes, and I am not a terribly large person. Airlines that still charge passengers for in-flight entertainment deserve a special sort of hatred that they receive, and United is the worst for this. Charging for wifi and movies is straight out of the year 2000, and that's squarely where United is. If JetBlue can offer free wifi, complementary movies and TV, snacks that are not stale, and an extra inch of legroom so can United. I hate this airline."
Pros: "Short flight, quick boarding once aircraft arrived"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "THe layover was only 1 hour and it was impossible to go through customs, get my luggage and re-check it and get to my next flight. I was at the gate 5 minutes before the plane took off and they didn’t let me on. I was devastated that I missed it and had to wait for the next flight."
Pros: "Flight landed on time and landed over 20 minutes early!! Great job! Love the direct flight from Denver to Pittsburgh!"
Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late getting to our gate despite arriving at Denver airport ahead of schedule"
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."
Pros: "The only thing i liked was when i left this horrible, run down airport and the awful people working at it."
Cons: "There was nothing good about this flight... until i landed in Pittsburgh. I will never fly United again... and i will avoid Newark at all costs."
Cons: "Advertised great price that did not include luggage and changes were not permitted. Cancellation within 24 hours."
Cons: "Bottom seat cushion was caved in and if the for legs we flew on this trip, definitely the most uncomfortable. Dissapoined that to track your progress on the screen you had to pay for service. Really!! That's pretty darn nickel and diming the customer to death."
Pros: "flight attendants were outstanding and very nice. Pilot was great as well and even thought we were delayed in Houston for a fuel sensor for 45 mins. He was still able to get us into Pittsburgh at a decent time. Was very happy with this flight."
Cons: "needed more leg room."
Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"
Pros: "Didnt die"
Cons: "I was supposed to sit with my other flyer and have a seat prepicked"
Pros: "Was on time and staff was great. You"
Cons: "Wifi barely worked even after i paid"
Pros: "The seats were extra comfy & roomy."
Cons: "I was connected to the free inflight wifi but couldn't get any movies to actually load."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "usually airlines let you change flights during/immediately after blizzards without a change fee. Elderly mom could not travel in the severe weather and they would not allow us to move the flight to the next week. Lost our $. With 6000 canceled flights the day before, I'm sure they filled her seat!"
Pros: "The boarding agent and the flight crew were very polite and professional"
Cons: "The flight from Denver to Pittsburgh went very well. Great flight attendants, a smooth flight PLUS, early arrival... Just can't beat that"
Pros: "Flight crew was great, flight was easy, aside from a little turbulence"
Pros: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats barely recline. No leg room"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, even if they were dealing with travelers who were cranky about it being so late."
Cons: "Twelve hours before the flight and they already knew that the flight would be delayed due to the inbound plane being later. One flight earlier in the day caused a delay for the rest of the day. So, our flight was three hours late in boarding, putting us into the final destination at 2:15 AM. Not cool, especially when travelling with children."
Cons: "do not see how the process is helped at all with those "lines or zones" Still seems like people get clogged up and takes too long to get boarded."
Pros: "Got to travel JetBlue for the first time which demonstrated the way an airline should treat its passengers."
Cons: "Never got on the United flight as United's inefficiency AGAIN caused significant delays! Still awaiting the reimbursement (or even communication) I was promised."
Pros: "the crew on the plane was pleasant and helpful. the pilot was very nice as well with made the flight smooth and delightful"
Cons: "we were not able to check in at the kiosk, it was saying that we need further assistance but wasn't giving any reason, nobody could help us with it. we were directed to different stands 3 times were people would just tell us they don't know what to do. the lines everywhere were extremely long with only 1 person working, the lady came up to the line at some point and stating assisting people in line starting from the back end of the line. That was very frustrating. she finally got to us, asked us to come up to the kiosk with her, wasn't been able to help us and then put us back in the end of the line! The lady who was able to help us in the end just said "it was just disconnected." I have no idea what it means but considering that on our way in we had to be on "standby" because the flight was overbooked. the total impressing from United is very poor."
Cons: "Broken Restrooms"
Pros: "The pilot was great. The smoothest take off and landing on the San Fran to Pittsburgh flight"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "1st time flying United and was truly impressed. They were timely and friendly. I might have just found my new favorite airline."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I shouldn't have had to pay to check a carry-on because the first flight was delayed."
Cons: "Will absolutely pay extra to never fly United ever again"
Pros: "Short flight so no need for food or entertainment, but the roomy seats were amazing after a long day of flying"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after being delayed for over 2 hours for mechanical issues. Gate agent was not overwhelmingly helpful or understanding to people's frustrations during the delay and didn't go out of her way to try to help. Customer Service was helpful and able to rebook and provide overnight hotel accommodations, but it was a very slow process that clearly frustrated some customers even more. Clearly not anyone's fault, but still frustrating and not a great flying experience."
Pros: "Some movies to choose from, plenty of good action and drama choices."
Cons: "We were diverted from Pittsburgh because of fog. Other flights landed shortly thereafter from other airlines which was frustrating, but a short delay did not ruin the day. We landed instead at Dulles. After sitting and waiting for hours we were finally all put back on the plane. Then we taxied out before the pilot told us they were over their hours or something along those lines and couldn't submit the paperwork necessary to take off. We went back to the gate and were told to wait some more in case there were more pilots. No more pilots came. No more flights were available. Instead we all hovered either around the gate desk or the customer service desk where we were told we couldn't be helped. We were instead forced to pile onto buses nearly 5 hours after we had landed at the wrong airport. We then spent another 6 hours on the road driving to Pittsburgh on a bus that was crowded and hot because the air conditioning kept failing. Because of some fog and a lot of incompetence, I arrived in Pittsburgh over 12 hours after I was supposed to. My trip in total lasted 20 hours from my flight in Seattle taking off. I missed an important event for the wedding that weekend, which was upsetting given the distance I had to travel and the amount of extra time I had scheduled in for myself, but the way we were treated was worse. There was no positive communication. Nobody knew anything. We were clearly an inconvenience that nobody knew what to do with so they just kept trying to push us off to the next person. It was infuriating and unacceptable I will never fly United again if I can possibly help it."
Pros: "We didn't have those annoying corrals of groups and we were called by our groups so it made the boarding VERY easy and civilized."
Cons: "I suggest on these surveys to have a Non-applicable section for food/entertainment as many of the flights don't offer these."
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew, flight was at our destination early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical problems, sat on aircraft to long before decision was made to change aircraft,multiple changes in gate which lead to long walks across airport. Should get some sort of refund for a lot of frustration and waiting"
Pros: "40 minute delay to swap a crew from the next gate over due to poor scheduling of total staff flight hours."
Cons: "crew was rude, boarding and waiting were horrible"
Cons: "There was no wifi no entertainment!!!!!!! This was a later flight that I had to be on and they showed no effort of making anyone feel comfortable even though we were on a late flight!!! Never booking united again!!!!!"
