The staff was extremely nice and professional.They did excellent job!
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Pros: "Everything was better than expected."
Pros: "The plane was brand new!"
Cons: "Every time my husband and I fly our seats get changed from our original picks. I make sure the tickets are linked and they still move us. Very irritating not sitting together especially when you take the time to ensure it doesn't happen."
Pros: "Comfortable (only) because lots of empty seats."
Pros: "Hmm pilots safety records paid over 2500 for comfort eats wanting to feel a bit more special"
Cons: "Food was awful service main cabin mediocre at best I don’t think delta realizes how important all the customers are not just business class as we do have choice out there throwing the piece of chocolate out there at the end to a horrible experience doesn’t make it ok"
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Pros: "Always Veg Meal for All"
Cons: "N A"
Cons: "Boarding wasn't by zone but all at once."
Pros: "The crew served things exactly as scheduled. They went out of their way to help passengers individually."
Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."
Cons: "Ear buds that allow me to hear the movies clearly; better equalization of the treble, bass and volume. I had to constantly turn volume up and down because of fluctuations in the movie sound track."
Pros: "Crew was great. Always attentive to needs of the passengers."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Cons: "Customs when we arrived in MPLS. Around 300 people get off the plane and they have 1 TSA agent checking passports. Terrible staffing and management on their part. Pretty sad!"
Cons: "Flight was 1,5 hr delayed, which almost caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "quick and efficient"
Cons: "I know it's not the airline's fault, but we were delayed for weather. Also seats do no recline and there is no entertainment."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and took care of us. We respected them and got it right back."
Cons: "It was no fault of the airline, but we got his with some weather delays which dampered our very long trip. Also, the leg room on the flight from Detroit to PDX was very small, we got lucky that we only had two people for our row of three seats. Let us stretch some."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow one free bag check in on transatlantic flights"
Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""
Cons: "They run out of options because I was sitting at the tail of the aircraft. So I didn't eat much."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Crew were nice. Flight itself was short. Was quick boarding considering how busy the flight was"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seats were rigid and not very comfortable. No entertainment. Just basic really."
Pros: "All the attendants were very nice. The movies were great, but ones I would have liked to watch were not on your list."
Cons: "There was no Christian music on the music section."
Pros: "Since I wasn't allowed on the flight because another leg caused us to arrive with only an hour to board, I can't tell you anything that was enjoyable."
Cons: "The KLM representative was COMPLETELY unhelpful. She basically told us we were screwed and to go away. We spent hours on the phone at great cost to us (international pay phone charges) to be bounced for one rep to another. We were finally told we could get in a plane home Sunday, please to be transferred, starting the process over from the beginning. It was TERRIBLE, beginning to end!"
Pros: "Best part, no one sat in the seats next to me so I got to lay down and sleep. Staff was nice, food was fine."
Cons: "This flight was good"
Pros: "Liked the food, the crew were cheerful and helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "KLM staff at the AMS airport were not helpful. She insisted that our luggage weigh exactly 23kg. At 23.7, she had us go back to take things out with only 45 minutes to boarding. She was rude and unprofessional. Taking off and landing was a little rough. Entertainment on the plane was limited and a little outdated."
Pros: "Pilot welcome to the plan was very nice seats was comfortable food was good"
Cons: "Crew attaitude is not really pleasant with passengers"
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Cons: "Although I have priority status -The ground crew in Amsterdam gave me hard time with 7 extra Pounds, and I was trying to take it out of the suitcase to no avail. Eventually the agent I was checking in with got busy, I went to a new agent, and with a flick of a keyboard he approved the extra rate based on my status, without even have my to request it."
Pros: "I love the overwhelming positivity exuded by the stallions in business class. Sometimes good things happen to mediocre coffee, others not so lucky!"
Cons: "The guy next to me looked like Joel Osteen and his daughter was actually Cardi B. I could feel the existential dread coming from their tray tables. Also, Lemon and Caramel cheesecake? What an awful flavor combination."
Pros: "seat was fine."
Cons: "A/C was blowing right on our heads. Asked to have the A/C turned down. They said sure. The nothing. Asked again? Nothing. 3rd time, my neighbor and the people in the seat ahead told them that we were ll cold. Nothing! I was sneezing by the time we landed."
Cons: "When checkin documents The lady was having conversations and I had to run from C to E. Then through the line I had to step aside again because my boarding pass was invalid. Many steps to check documents but still at the actual gate the documents had to be checked again."
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "About 10-15 yrs ago I stopped transatlantic flights on Delta. It was a scruffy airline with uninterested cabin crew & not to talk of food etc. What a change! Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Pros: "Food was good Movie technology was good Staff was helpful Aircraft was spacious"
Cons: "Not a lot of family movie selection"
Pros: "Still the best great airline"
Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Had to hurry to get to my train."
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "Nice service for short flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 2 days."
Cons: "This flight was on a Transavia codeshare with Delta and a real downer after coming from a Delta One business class segment. An uncontrolled mass boarding, crammed in seating, no amenities and charges for a drink of water made this a pretty crappy flight. The crew was nice though."
Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."
Plane was too croweded. Small airplane. No screens or anything. Felt like you fly in 1970
the economy seats are really cramped.
Pros: "It was my birthday and the flight attendant gave me a rose, gummibears and champagne and congratulate me and I was very happy to receive that gesture"
Cons: "Luggage was not received. Now being told it will take up to 5 days! Unacceptable performance"
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was late. Airport experience in Frankfurt horrible. It looked like all was intended to increase the delay. They made me miss my train connection"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with plenty of food, drink, entertainment and good service. Flight left on time."
Cons: "The flight departure time was too close to the arrival time so we ended up running thru the Frankfort airport."
Cons: "We booked our plane reservations through Kayak . My sister booked my reservation along with hers at the same time. Kayak put us on different planes at different times on our return flight back to the USA. I had assumed we were flying together ( sisters with the same last names), so I showed up at the airport to find out that I had missed my first flight. I already had a boarding pass for the next flight, but Kayak had canceled me and booked someone else in my seat. No more seats in economy and I had to pay $1750. Euros for another ticket. Why would 2 passengers flying together and booking together be put on different planes and different times. We will NEVER use Kayak again!7"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Cons: "Standing outside of the plane in the freezing hail, when my clothing was completely unequipped for it"
Pros: "The premium economy clas was wonderful. All of the amenities, comfort, room made a long trip far more enjoyable. The crew was right there to help me get to the next gate."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is dreadful. I'm elderly and being forced to climb up and down stairs to the Tarmac with luggage and then crammed into a bus to the terminal was terrible. I would avoid Frankfurt at all costs. Lufthansa needs to take some initiative with this."
Pros: "Staff were amazingly helpful n friendly. Food was yummy."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "priority boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "aisle bulkhead seat: curtai separating business class from economy was hanging over my legs."
Cons: "We were detained at the airport after boarding and then deboarding without information. The entire flight was locked in a room and not allowed to leave with very little explanation as to why. After 5 hours they let us board another plane. There was water and candy supplied as food. It was a joke for anyone with kids or the elderly. Nevermind anyone with health concerns. BAD way to manage a crisis in my opinion. We were treated like cattle. And these were NOT cheap tickets."
Pros: "Air dolomiti - great service, prosecco in a real glass and with small sandwich provided."
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Pros: "We were well taken care off for a short flught"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent on these Star Allisnce international flights booked by United but operated by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is inadequate for international flights. Seats had no cushion left in seat bottoms. It was like sitting on cement."
Pros: "Plane not full so we hat an extra Seat"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight, fun snack (cakes on a plane!), relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Decent legroom. Crew pleasant. Food was very good especially for a very short flight."
Cons: "I did not know I had purchased economy light ticket. With this you can only carry on 18 pounds and must check and PAY to check any other bag. I looked at my reservation from Vaysms and did not see notice of this. Surprised that one hour trip at this price , well over $200, was in this category. Also trying to buy the option for the bag on phone was difficult. Whole page with options would not show and getting English version was difficult probably because page would not fit on screen."
Pros: "Our flight out of Amsterdam was roughly 30 minutes late. Since we were connecting to an International flight to return to the US there was no possibility we would be able to get to the International terminal through security and board our flight in the time available. So, Lufthansa staff met the connecting passengers as we disembarked, shuttled us via bus to the International terminal and ensured we made our connection. Finally, for airline food it was quite good (Vegan)."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "This was NOT a Lufthansa flight. The plane was a United flight. One of the worst I have experienced in 40 years of flying to Europe and Hawaii."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Pros: "Safe and efficient transportation."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't functioning so there weren't any viewing options presented. The crew failed to mention that the United app provides movies on your phone."
Cons: "It was not a Lufthansa flight, as I had bought, but a United flight because of their partnership. The bathroom made me gag, the food and the entertainment left much to be desired but the service was good. Cannot complain about the flight attendants. Entertainment was also very 2008 with tine screens and not able to select what and when to watch. They only had movies and series on loop. Will avoid having to fly United in the future and will make sure I am indeed getting on a Lufthansa plane."
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and attentive. Sitting in Economy plus is acceptable comfort wise. Captain was very communicative when there was a mechanics issue and delay, much appreciated."
Cons: "United check in desk was unnecessarily long wait, other airports/airlines have a better flow. The screens on the seat backs on 767 are ridiculously small and stuttery. The main meal was not very good, pasta sauce was gross, could've done better with prego."
Pros: "We arrived 15 minutes early, which is always great!"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken for dinner and only had manicotti left, which was horrible! No apologies for running out of 1 of the 2 options. The audio was horrible. In order to watch the movies, I had to hold the cord in 2 places in the exact right manner, or it would cut out and there would only be silence. Not fun trying to maintain that position for 9 hours."
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Seat back entertainment? What a joke! It was like watching a movie on a Motorola Razr (or my old Ericsson flip phone). Surly old battle axe sky waitresses. 90s vintage plane interiors. Need I go on?"
Cons: "We sat on the runway over an hour because they couldn’t get a proper flight plan. Such a waste of time and I felt so bad for those who had connecting flights"
Cons: "they keep using a very old 767: no personal entertainment screen, no USB outlet and absolutely freezing temperature. Most of the people put on their heavy coats."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, we were well-fed and service was great!"
Cons: "Captions for the hearing impaired, but not possible unless there are individual TV's. I understand that this was an older plane--a "classic." Hoping that entertainment will become more accessible in newer planes"
Cons: "We waited in the shuttle bus for one hour while they determined the plane needed maintenance and found another plane to warm up"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The food was pretty good. They were generous with the wine pours. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The legroom wasn't great on the flight from Amsterdam to Dallas. My plane from Dallas to Chicago actually had better legroom, which is ironic considering it was a much shorter flight. I would prefer more legroom on the longer trans-Atlantic flight. My baggage in Chicago was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "Crew needs to improve their attitude"
Pros: "Well the food was very good. Which i didn't expect how good it was. And the crew were nice people."
Cons: "well we were delayed twice. One in Schiphol and the other in Philly. Wasted my time and everyone elses."
Cons: "Limited legroom is a problem. Otherwise, the flight was fine."
Pros: "The scheduled te"
Cons: "Old plane entertainment was not working properly for a 8+ hr flight? WiFi wouldn’t connect. Dingy interior."
Pros: "American did the right thing and turned around our flight when a passenger became ill. Despite leaving very late, the pilot was able to make up time to Philadelphia so we were able to make our connection."
Cons: "Recovery of this unplanned event was poor at best. Had to leave for the airport at 6 am only to then wait for 6 hours before we could board. to make matters worse, American then scheduled wake up time for all of the passengers for 4:40 am. I don't take that long to get ready. They did not do a very good job communicating to us on how they were going to recover from this unplanned event."
Pros: "Great movies and food"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Nice seat. Good food. Good service."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Comfortable wifi enabled jet."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2hrs. Inbound aircraft mechanical trouble. No info provided by airline. Maddening 10 minute rolling delay. "Your flight is boarding in xx(10) minutes and no airplane is at gate. It's just ridiculous."
Pros: "Operated by American Airlines and the crew was polite and attentive."
Cons: "Economy Class is a Beat Down, but what are you going to do?"
Cons: "We arrived 2 1/2 hr before boarding and arrived at the gate 6 minutes before AA was announcing it would close the gate. Desk was clearly understaffed."
Pros: "friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "Sitting next to emergency exit door with a peep hole for light. Also next to toilette so everyone had to pass us. No overhead above us so our medical and personal items were stowed in 3 places initially."
Cons: "The changed of flight from.BA To American airlines."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Time of flight and on time flight"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "The in flight staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Our 2nd flight was changed by the airline, causing us to have a 6 hour layover in Philadelphia instead of a 2 hour layover. Then when we ask about changing to a different flight they told us that the original flight we were supposed to be on (that we booked over 8 months ago) was completely full so that’s why we were moved, and there were no other flights available to switch to. So we accepted that. But when we printed our boarding passes, we saw that our seats were now separate from each other, and they were both middle seats! I don’t understand how booking my tickets so far in advance still resulted in these issues. We were finally able to get an aisle and window seat (not near each other) but both flights had poor to little entertainment, which I wouldn’t have expected on such long flights with American Airlines. Really was letdown. :("
Pros: "Price and service"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Pros: "Flight was not completely full so I got an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "We were delayed due to some balance issues."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "Rarely do I find the airline food excellent, or even good. But the Pasta dish on the Amsterdam-to-Philly flight that is what I experienced, absolutely delicious."
Cons: "Complementary reservation 24 hrs before flight. B-757 was smallest airplain I ever fly over atlantic."
Cons: "First flight got cancelled without explanation. Then I couldn't get a follow up direct flight so I had to wait 2 days. Then when I finally flew there you lost my suitcase and I had to wait for that for 2 days!!! I'll never fly Iberia again!! You didn't even try to make up for it. And the guy at the counter was straight up rude."
Cons: "No charges for cellphones on first class! (Plane looks pretty new as well)"
Cons: "no personal tv in each seat in the international route"
Cons: "Their customer service was no help and didn't know why. So o scrambled to buy a last minute ticket home from the Netherlands."
Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."
Pros: "This wasn't a British Airlines flight! We ended up being on a crappy, ancient American Airlines flight instead of the BA flight we had booked. It is very duplicitous to purchase a ticket for an airline with a great reputation and end up on a genuinely lousy flight on a totally different airline (especially one like American, that I would never book!)."
Cons: "Older American Airlines plane had the old monitors showing cabin the same movies. Difficult to see and hurt my neck. You don't expect this on overseas flights."
Pros: "Friendly customer service, good snacks."
Cons: "No negative actions or interactions."
Pros: "The flight was painfully uncomfortable for me, as a tall and not particularly small person. I should have known better than to take the window seat (Orlando to DC was painfully uncomfortable because I just don't fit in those seats). The in-flight service was good, but I was glad when this flight was over."
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Pros: "it was all very easy and good."
Pros: "Offer to send the carry on for free at the gate."
Cons: "Have to pay for check in bag. Used to be free!!!"
Cons: "Unexpected layover in maine. Worst and oldest planes I have ever flown in. Absolutely no entertainment options or Internet from Amsterdam to san francisco!"
Cons: "There was no Entertainment. No Screens. Nothing. Except one small tv on the alley. I can so no entertainment for so ever"
Pros: "Quick action on potential turbulence"
Cons: "Too warm on the plane."
Pros: "Plane arrived early."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "There was no tvs- extremely old plane. Which makes for a very long 9hr flight. No wifi and no outlets to charge devices. Had to go to back of plane and ask for water and come- staff didn't come round regularly enough offering beverages."
Cons: "Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly an American / American code share flight abroad again. I cannot believe they are flying this plane for trans-continental flight in 2016."
Cons: "1980's 757. Literally, I flew on planes like this in the 80's. American, please get with it. This was a horrendous flight. No in flight entertainment at all in 2016 on a 9+ hr. flight is unacceptable. Couple that with 1.25 hour delay AFTER the plane boarded. You should not be flying narrow body jets on flights this long. Much less ones with old, uncomfortable seats and zero entertainment options. I don't mean to sound entitled but this experience was night and day in every capacity (comfort, food, service, entertainment) from my flight to Europe on BA. Sad. Lastly, I sat next to a off duty American flight attendant who was quite rude."
Cons: "Screen is slow and outdated. Easy upgrade from one class to another."
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "I had a seat with a drip, probably condensation, that feel on my head and face throughout the flight. At one point during takeoff it was a steady stream of water. I sat with a napkin perched on my head and would mop up the water between events. That was a first! And with a long 14 hour flight, not welcomed."
Cons: "serious delays and the staff were not very friendly. Weren't willing to go above and beyond for travellers that had been sitting in airports all day! Probably one of the poorest crews i have encountered on Air Canada."
Cons: "I almost missed my connection. No one cared. Staff in airport were downright cranky - all due to late incoming aircraft and yet more de-icing... why ever don't they allow time for that in November!!!"
Pros: "I have never flown Air Canada before and it was one of the best airlines I have ever flown! Entertainment was great! The outlets were clutch. I got a sandwich and it was really delicious !"
Cons: "I didn't find anything I didn't like!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, staff friendly and helpful. Flight attendants ensured those with connecting flights deplaned quickly when we arrived at the gate in Montreal."
Pros: "considering all the delays, both in delay in leaving Amsterdam and holding pattern due to thunderstorms in Toronto all went well in a very long day."
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Great crew, great food, seat was amazing."
Pros: "Great airline for food and service."
Cons: "For couples traveling in business Air Canada's seating is designed to de-couple by placing barriers between seats . They need to try Emerites to check out how a pod should work Entertainment is limited"
Cons: "Approx 2 weeks after booking, my flight was cancelled and rescheduled with a 6 hour layover in Newark. I did not fly to Toronto. I contacted Air Canada and was rescheduled again but arriving hours later than originally scheduled. I flew to Newark and connected to Halifax, my destination."
Cons: "Economy seats are very small and tight. Food is average at best. Crew is semi-friendly/"
Cons: "They lost our luggage not only on the way to our destination but also on the way home both times in Toronto"
Pros: "Flight was over an hour late Boarding was chaotic from the airport staff"
Pros: "The cost is to high especially not coming with a meal"
Pros: "Great crew and helpers on the ground too! Loved the entertainment too! :)"
Pros: "Great crew and on schedule."
Cons: "One of the better flights I have taken no complaints."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."
Cons: "The lavatory sink was clogged. The audio to movies was inaudible, as though the picture was streaming and the audio was lost. The crew offered little assistance to a clearly frail elderly passenger who had a very difficult time rising from her seat and using the lavatory."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, plane A/C not working. Waited for another plane. They tried to fix the first plane but they just delayed getting another plane."
Pros: "On time flight best customer service"
Cons: "flight was booked as Lufthansa, but Lufthansa would not allow seat selection and air Canada would not recognize Lufthansa booking code, so we were stuck in middle seats for 8 hr & 5 hr flights on third section we in in very back of plane even though there were better seats available"
Pros: "Entertainment on this flight was comparatively better than the flight we took from LAX to Toronto...Snacks was also better on this flight than the LAX to Toronto flight which really confuses me as to why?"
Cons: "The wait time though for our flight was 6 hours and there were 2 or 3 other earlier flights to LAX that day.."
Pros: "None I like"
Cons: "Crew - no one onboard seemed happy, didn't see anyone smile at all, not a happy place. Food - tasteless, for the only meal they offered transatlantic flight was total thumbs down."
Pros: "The Crew was the best people ever"
Cons: "Not about the flight but about the Kayak service, I bought the ensurance but it didnt let me change my flight anyway"
Pros: "The food was really good. I was kind of shocked but each meal or snack I had was delicious and I especially liked that I could pre order special food according to my diet. The staff was friendly and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "the music channels were lame. I was bummed we did not have wifi in the plane and so I couldn't listen to good music the whole flight"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled then accommodations were extremely unorganized."
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Pros: "Seat, pillow and blanket were clean. Flight arrived on time, luggage was intact and there were no issues boarding or de-boarding."
Cons: "Booked 4 months in advance - flew solo. Only window seat left was at the very back, near where the crew prepared everything. The entire flight was spent listening to them prepare meals, discuss their trip itinerary, shifts and how Air Canada treats them, as employees, so poorly. The crew were very short with most passengers and it seemed over staffed."
Pros: "My scren was´t working ok, and the screen of my sister seat was in ¨wait please..¨ half of the trip. The boarding wasn´t on time but the crew memebers where really nice. Overall okey"
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage, customer service was very vague and unhelpful, did not get my bag back for almost a week."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and prompt. They kept us informed and acted very professional."
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system is crappy and looks like it's from the 1990's. It needs a serious overhaul. I reserved windows seats and showed up to check and had been placed in the middle."
Cons: "Staff don't understand the rules clearly"
Pros: "boarding was quick, organized."
Cons: "my in-seat personal tv was broken. If there hadn't been other empty seats, I would have had to sit with no IFE the whole flight."
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and multi-lingual. The food was fine and beverages were frequently offered. I live in Michigan, but flights from Windsor (via Toronto) to Europe are much less expensive, so well worth the drive over the border."
Cons: "This airline only allows for one free checked bag when flying internationally. The checked bag size is stringent (but at least travelers are notified about that several times when booking and paying on line. The movie options are limited, but still enough variety to find something to watch."
Pros: "For the most part all crews were courteous and friendly. Early boarding for a disabled person traveling with our family was problematic on each leg of the trip."
Cons: "Not being informed of the reasons for the delay of almost four hours in the Toronto to Amsterdam leg was a major disappointment. Legroom on both transatlantic legs was a problem as well."
Pros: "Never got on this flight. We were never given an email to self check in, and we're unable to board 45 mins before at the gate coming frim anotthe flight. They overbooked this flight & sold our tickets, and then told us we couldn't get on flight. Now we are out $2500 buying new tix!"
Cons: "All the above. A simple check in email would have averted this problem. All the other airlines do this. We were under the presumption that we had to check in at airport when we didn't get check-in notice. Furthermore, they sold our tickets, so we're down $2500 and they doubled their profit. It would be hard for me to say I will use Air Canada or kayak in the future."
Pros: "The flight attendant was well informed and quite helpful."
Pros: "Entertainment was decent, and one of the crew members was very kind. The others seemed overworked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours for maintenance, which was better than flying with a maintenance problem. Would have appreciated better information/communication about the delay."
Cons: "I asked for water for medication they said they will come back with it. I understand they're busy but I had my call button on for so long twice and no one came. I had to wait all long for the actual service to arrive to my section when they were serving drinks."
Cons: "The flight was late. They did not tell us that there would be a delay until a few minutes before our take off time. When they finally did tell us there was a delay they said it would be 15 minutes. The flight ended up being an hour late. The lack of communication was very frustrating."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual, and I always enjoy the unique selection of international film in the entertainment system."
Cons: "That old plane was VERY drafty around the emergency exit. I can't remember ever feeling cold on a plane. Usually it's the opposite. But here was a consistent stream of ice cold air leaking through the airframe around the emergency exit. It was cold enough that I had to put several layers of blankets up on the wall and lean against them all the way home. In addition, my seat was so "well-used" that it provided very little support and often felt as though I was sitting on a bench. Not a pleasant experience."
Cons: "United is awesome."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The check in process was a nightmare at Amsterdam airport. Partly due to the not being able to check bag straight through, multiple visits to counters, long lines for dropping off bag, and in ability to check in on line or on app from either Lufthansa or United. Each site said visit the other site."
Pros: "Not too late. Older 767-400 planes are not comfortable but are reliable."
Cons: "Amsterdam airport Schiphol is among the very worst in Europe. I will never fly thru Amsterdam again. Truly miserable experience despite being a Business class traveler. The United crew was mediocre at best. Food was not good. Disappointing."
Pros: "Very kind and professional cabin crew."
Pros: "Safety and crew’s are best"
Pros: "Seats were better than usual. On time."
Cons: "Jammed full, not enough overhead bin storage. Too many people allowed to bring on WAY too much as carry-on. Badly managed. Wasn't Lufthansa, was a code share on a United flight. Wish it was Lufthansa, which is what the ticket originally was supposed to be. Bait and switch!"
Cons: "Boarding could have been better. If you have 5 groups you should have 5 lines — not 2. Also the terminal in Holland was extraordinarily cold."
Pros: "Great. I had no issues with boarding."
Pros: "It was nice and smooth. The crew was great, especially Urere, our stewardess. Comfort and food were good, on par with the nickel diming of airlines."
Cons: "Comfort can be greatly improved."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Cons: "Ended up at Logan."
Pros: "The availability of media to watch on the long overseas flight was helpful to avoid boredom."
Cons: "Flight attendants passed out headsets to hear the media, my set was missing one of the foam ear pads. When I called it to the attention of a flight attendant, she took my set and did not return with one, causing me to search out my telephone headset."
Pros: "For the most part the staff made an attempt to help me get onto a flight. I think."
Cons: "I had to go on my trip a few days later due to a work conflict. I never changed my itinerary because I didn’t think it mattered. I bought a new one way ticket on a different airline and went to get on my return flight that I had paid for and was still receiving emails about. I got to the airport to check in for my return flight and it had been canceled because I didn’t get on the first leg. I was never notified and they couldn’t get me on the flight I wanted because it was leaving in less than hour(which is a stupid rule). And to get me on a flight the next day would cost $2500. No thanks. And before anyone tells me that it’s in the fine print that they cancel a flight if you don’t show up, save it. We all know people don’t read all that. Be a human being. So if your plans change, make sure you officially change your plans, because they may go above, but probably not beyond. Oh and it took quite a long time for them to figure out what happened. If they had realized and I didn’t spend so much time on the phone with customer service, I might’ve been outside the hour window requirement."
Pros: "Good food seats lay flat to sleep on business clas"
Pros: "Having an aisle seat."
Cons: "Being bussed a long way out to the airplane made us depart late. Very inefficient handling by the staff. They should have started earlier. This has never happened to me before on United. What has happened?"
Pros: "The staff were super attentive, they kept walking down the aisle with cups of water and interacted with the passengers throughout the flight. The crew seemed to work very well together, I could sense a great harmony between them that really put all of us passengers at ease. I am quick to complain about US carriers and have had some awful experiences flying US airline companies, so feel the need to really compliment this crew. If other United flights are like this, I will definitely fly them again."
Cons: "Meals served was not so good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Great service, onboard entertainment, comfortable and got in early"
Pros: "the plane got me to chicago in one piece"
Cons: "United switched the aircraft shortly before takeoff and reassigned me to an uncomfortable aisle seat in the last row of the middle section of the plane. The seats were dingy, the back-of-seat TV monitors were grainy and of poor quality, the headphone jack for audio was old and not fully functioning."
Cons: "United's flight was delayed by 6 hours, couldn't make the connecting flight from Washington DC to Denver so they routed me to san francisco, spend the night at the airport there and then travel to Denver in the morning. Fortunately there was a very helpful crew in Schiphol that was able to get us on a flight with american airlines to philadelphia and then on to Denver."
Pros: "I like that it was through United Airline, which I’m a member of so I got to board a littler earlier"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Everything had cheese which I don’t eat."
Cons: "United crew was so rude. It was very apparent they were annoyed and burnt out from their jobs. I even overhead a crew member making a rude comment about me to another crew member. All I did was ask a question, and apparently it was a stupid one. Made me appreciate my flight to Amsterdam on Swiss even more than I aready did!"
Cons: "I was unable to go on the flight because of the extraordinarily high cost of changing a last name from a maiden name to a married name. I was so disappointed by the service."
Pros: "Good leg room."
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Next day flight was very good and the crew was professional and apologetic for the delay"
Cons: "The long delay of 20 hrs, which was poorly announced, only 4-5 hours in advance and innacurate: initially announced as 10 hours delay, then re-announced with another departure time, this time 20 hours delay. The staff at United did a poor job in trying to find other flight to Washington."
Cons: "Sat by emergency exit and it was very cold"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Cons: "I think Kayak wasn't clear that Lufhansa and United are partners....all that Kayak put on my ticket was United. When I went to JFK I could not find United international and the airport info people said it's Lufhatnasa and then when I went to Schipol airport and went to Lufhtansa they said there is a United international check in. Kayak cost me a lot of walking and delays because they were not clear on what airline out of which airport."
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an additional 3 hours on a 2 hour layover. We left 5 hours later. It was exhausting! worst airline ever. I will never fly united again."
Pros: "How empty the plane was so multiple seats for just myself. Also staff was great, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Giveaway was the bathrooms when we had just boarded. One of the stewards had an attitude. Entertainment system stopped many times. United did offer a "recompense. " However, my touch monitor was not responsive; so was for the person who sat behind me as he kept poking my headrest. Boarding line did not move for a long time."
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very friendly, helpful and wonderful experience with them. I appreciate the flight leaving and arriving close to scheduled time."
Cons: "No USB charge connectors/power outlets (integral these days on a long international flight). The quality of in seat tv screen is mediocre - best to watch on your own device (but then you need the USB connection that is missing on this flight). The wifi kept on dropping in the plane (both ways). The food is not as good as served on other airlines and they ran out of dishes both ways and we did not have choices and had to eat what was available (which was not good either). Should indicate on seat selection when making purchase if there will be items below seat such as metal boxes that will limit legroom more than for other seats. I was placed at such a seat both ways, and had no legroom for over 8 hrs each way. :/"
Cons: "there weren't any movie options. the crew put on three or four movies that started and ended at their own designated time."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Eventually they moved us through realizing they were going to have an empty plane if they didn't"
Cons: "Terrible check in. Thought I reserved a seat on Lufthansa only to find out that United changed it."
Pros: "The flight left on time."
Cons: "One flight attendant was very grumpy--he just wanted to sit and play on his phone. He was brusque with people. The other man (who was learning French) made up for him by being nice"
Pros: "The first leg of this flight was excellent. Good crew, excellent service, great entertainment centers, comfortable seating, enough room in aisle to allow movement. The second leg of our journey ( From D.C. to Seattle) was another story."
Pros: "the United app that let me watch movies from my own device. The flight attendant gave me an extra blanket."
Cons: "the plane was very old and didn't have the entertainment options that newer planes have. The screen was so small and nearly impossible to see when the person in front of me reclined. The toilets weren't very clean. The food was very mediocre. I have a dairy intolerance, and both options contained dairy products. There was no lactose free or diabetic special meal option. There was an hour and a half delay to repair something on the plane when we made an emergency medical landing in Boston. I didn't mind the landing; I minded the excessive delay and wonder what would have happened if we didn't stop in Boston? What would have happened to the plan?"
Pros: "The fact that we had two checked bags at no cost as well as the communication of the airline crew and also the choice of entertainment which even included HBO and Showtime."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "It took WAY too long to check bags."
Cons: "I required a wheelchair from gate to gate, on each gate I had to ask for it a few times, regardless that it said so in the computer. On one departure i bearly made as we ran really late. United reps seems kind of moody. Waiting for so eone to pick me up last minute made for a really stressful trip."
Pros: "The service was outstanding. There was a lot of space between the seats. A lot of movies to choose and the best part you don't have to pay for it. Nothing like other airlines. This is the best by far!"
Pros: "Meal was served right away and then we were not bothered for quite a while in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Seats could use a lumbar support"
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
