Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"
Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"

Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "One of the best cabin crew. Curtious, friendly, helpful and we're always available in the cabin."
Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice selection of movies. Very tasty vegetarian meals. Nice amount of recline on seats."
Cons: "After selecting seats in advance and reconfirming the day before flight upon check in, on arrival at airport our seats had been reassigned to the absolute worst seats on the airplane. The service was not good, with dirty food trays being left in front of us for over an hour at a time, service request call buttons going unanswered, and no beverage service until long after meals were served. Seats very firm for such a long flight. While meals were very good, snack options were terrible."
Cons: "Touch screens are hardly touch sensitive..you may need to replace the screens.."
Pros: "everything especially the crews"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive stewardesses. Beautiful too"
Cons: "The internet connection "Wi-Fly" is very weak. Data rates are outrageous. $4.95 plan is basically good for 5 minutes, $11.95 plan maybe lasts 10 minutes. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."
Pros: "The business class lounge at Abu dabi the cabin crew"
Cons: "The cabin crew rudeness was unbearable"
Cons: "Unorganized lines for check in at JFK airport. Wheelchair was not provided, though it was requested before a month. Customer service rep didn’t try to call for a wheelchair."
Cons: "A bag was lost at Ahmedabad airport."
Cons: "Food is terrible and they always run short of food."
Cons: "Ground staff is so inefficient and checkin process at JFK and boarding at AUH is abysmal. Ground staff at JFK have no regard for time and on time departure. Seriously lacking in entertainment options inflight and food is mediocre. Etihad is seriously lagging other competitors from same region like Enirates. This would effect my choice airline for my future travels."
Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"
Pros: "I like service in cabines"
Cons: "I didn't like service in JFK counters..they didn't let me in my hand carrying bag to cabin..but some passengers had big bags then my bag..."
Cons: "The worst airline experience overall. AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. I actually got yelled at by an air hostess because I accomodated an elderly couple to sit togather and I sat on next seat over. Not a common sense airline. The Abu Dhabi airport was hot as hell. Yes, inside the airport terminal was super hot, close to 90 degrees.... Emirates is far superior Airline than this."
Cons: "AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. The staff was OK only. The entertainment was sub par. I recently flew Delta domestic flights and it had many newer English and Hindi movies than on this flight to India, go figure. I think even Air India may have newer and many more movie choices than this air line. I flew my sick father with Catheter business class but the restrooms in the business class were same small pigeon hole size. We could not even fit inside to empty out the bag. Don't buy business thinking of the luxury of space. It is a myth."
Pros: "On this leg the general courtesy was great especially one particular hostess, Nikita. The movies and certain music on the menu were a good range."
Cons: "The food! 12 hours of mediocrity in a aluminium foil. My wife and my hand held consoles were not working and hence we couldn't use our reading light besides some other functional limitations. An elderly lady sitting in front of me had a bad bout of chills because of the cabin temperature (most probably) the staff never followed up on the help that fellow passengers had given to the lady. My prior two flights with this airliner were much worse My A380 experience in the Emirates has been MUCH more spacious and great meals with a predictably jollier staff. Qatar airways can perhaps even top that. The only thing I feel etihad has over these better rivals is the convenience of the US Immigration. As a NATIONAL CARRIER of the UAE, I'm quite unimpressed and disappointed."
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "Nothing...at check-in I was made to pay for 10 kgs for having 1 kg over weight"
Cons: "Everything...crew from JFK to Abu Dhabi was fussy and overall very rude...didn't even serve food properly"
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Check in attendants at JFK were very unclear."
Pros: "The economy seats have an innovative recline which really adds to comfort, especially for such a long trans-Atlantic flight. The crew was very professional and helpful. Efficient. The entire Etihad Experience was excellent. The boarding happened on schedule, the flights as promised. No missed connections, no issues with baggage. Top Notch. Very clean aircraft."
Cons: "For whatever reason they would not let me keep my carry-ons as JetBlue did, so I had to check one of them. They have weight limits for the carry-ons, which I understand, but in my case they really were not large, and not very heavy. It is what it is."
Pros: "It's amazing flight ever Ghezlan the hostess she awesome and helpful with all the passengers I love her cause she's wonderful"
Cons: "Faulty Seats. Had to change seats thrice. luckily, the flight was not that full. Seats were not reclining at all."
Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Pros: "I was more than pleasantly surprised by the level of service, comfort and food on this flight. I typically dread these long haul flights, but this was actually a pleasant experience. The fold flat seats are comfortable and roomy, the food and meal service, when you want it is convenient if you wish to dine on your schedule, not the airlines and the general high level and friendly service was much appreciated. The "lounge" space they have between the first and business class cabins is fantastic; its a small bar like area where you can get out of your seat and chat with other passengers, watch news, read or whatever, and not be confined to your seat. Overall a great experience, Arrived having slept, eat and drank well."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Cons: "We did not get our bags (total of 6 bags) - It was extremely difficult with an infant and a toddler to manage without clothes and meds. Staff was extremely arrogant during the flight, not helpful at all. Boarding process was a huge disaster - no planning, no zone boarding and unnesessary panic. Lastly food, worst frozen food. The portions were too small and very limited service. We won't use ETIHAD again."
Pros: "Give more food options"
Pros: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Small toilets, tighter seats"
Cons: "No other options but mostly spicy"
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "1. Food choices from NYC to Abu Dhabi were only lamb or Indian cuisine (chicken kofta or veg), no seafood option. Very few extras were given with the meal or between meals (no fruit, candy bars, peanuts, etc. on the flight). 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
Pros: "The boarding process was seamless"
Cons: "The fact that my screen did not work and i could not sleep on the flight. It was very painful and nothing was done"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, it was clean and prompt."
Cons: "More movie selection would be nice"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Pros: "I sat in the aisle seat so it was fairly roomy. The movies selection was very good."
Cons: "The Air Hostess was fairly rude to one particular passenger. Given that that passenger was fairly aggressive in asking for children kits, and the Air Hostess was doing her best to inform her that she has to give them all to the children first. Unfortunately it was very condescending the way she talked to the said lady. I felt that it could have been handle better. The guy next to me, his On Flight entertainment wasn't working. i felt bad for him."
Pros: "The staff as helpful and attentive"
Pros: "It got me from my home country to my destination."
Cons: "The movie selection was just mediocre...other airlines have much better (wider selection) & newer films. Also the flight attendants never woke me up for my 2nd meal, even though I very clearly used the sleep-mask provided that said "wake me up for meals" written in all over the front. I don't understand why this system was set in place if your cabin crew aren't going to use it...? Also did not like the mango custard -- was a bit weird. I'd recommend just plane/vanilla custard -- these flavors are much more widely appreciated by everyone. Mango is too quaint, even for those requesting hindu-vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The Airline light staff were polite and very professional! I felt accommodated and my questions were answered in a timely fashion. Did I also mention their entertainment system on board is epic lol"
Cons: "Make make an announcement to fellow passengers not to leave the lavatory a complete mess."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for more than 2 hours for flight to take off. Missing the connecting flight to New Delhi from Abu Dhabi. Stranded in the Abu Dhabi terminal for more than 24 hours to get back to New Delhi. The airline did not provide a room to stay & forced to stay in the terminal for 24 hours. Never ever travel via Etihad."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time and it was uneventful - just what you want from a long journey."
Cons: "There can always be a little more leg room, can't there?"
Pros: "Courtesy of employees"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I like the crew but at Abu Dhabi airport custmer service is poor I lost my scarf at airplane it was too complicated to get it and I was running out of time so I left it"
Cons: "I did not like the food now befor it was good it seems it is for vegetarians only it was Ramadan and they should take. care of that overall it is a good air line mostly I travel with Etihad seats are smaller"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and excellent in-flight service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving New York and arrived Abu Dhabi late. Had to rush to catch the connecting flight."
Pros: "First time flyer with them and can't say enough hood things about it. Wonderful airlines."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, but I wasn't informed until after a kiosk told me to check with an attendant. After waiting in line for an hour to find out my flight was cancelled, I was told I could either go to LaGuardia for a 1955 flight or I could wait until tomorrow at the same time. Neither flight was guaranteed and since they use AA, there was no other airline I could use to fly out of JFK or get home that day. I paid the $14 to bus over to LaGuardia where my flight was delayed repeatedly and I didn't arrive in PGH until nearly 11p. (scheduled to arrive @ 1720) The flight itself was not bad nor did the crew do a bad job, it was more the general indifference and treatment in between."
Cons: "Food and entertainment."
Pros: "One Air hostess Ms.Swetha was outstanding even in this worst experience. The other onboard crew was bit Panic, without smile and not much caring She was caring, not Panic even when Chaos was there during the start of the flight"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean after 3 hours. This is not good for a long flight. No guidance from any airline staff for the connection flight"
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "Great to be home in time"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Entertainment center."
Cons: "Turbulence was so so bad!! Pilot announce that there would be a little of it!!! It never stopped!!! I thought I wouid leave at that time and sleep some what!!! Not a wink!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew were not very organized or friendly. The food was very mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very professional and organized. Plane was clean and seats comfortable."
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Really professional. Nice service."
Cons: "Lost a bag."
Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."
Cons: "Poor communication about delays, delayed for over an hour with no where to find once on the plane, nobody offered any of the passengers anything to drink. Overall my worst flying experience with United ever."
Pros: "Check-in at Narita was great!!! The entire process from obtaining boarding pass to dropping off luggage took less than 3 minutes."
Pros: "Great to always feel comfortable while traveling."
Pros: "They gave me plenty of fluids that I asked for."
Cons: "They had a problem with the radio which almost made me late for my connecting flight. We left 1.5 hours late."
Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "It's a 12 hour flight. It's exhausting"
Cons: "The flight staff was rude, the wrong gas was put in the plane causing a delay, I missed my connection because of this where they wrote it was delayed because "it was snowing in Savannah" which was a blatant lie, but made it so they did not have to help me in any way since their delay was "weather" related. They could not get my to my destination until noon the next day which forced me to buy a new flight on Alaska air. My flight on Alaska was absolutely fantastic and I regret ever buying any United flight and will not in the future."
Cons: "the wait time. Sitting on the tarmac for 20-25 minutes in PSP waiting for LAX reaffix to clear. The worst is arriving at LAX at 8;39AM which is earlier than anticipated and not getting a gate opened until 9:25AM (approx) sitting on the runway not being told what is going on and when the captain does make an announcement it is to tell us he apologizes for the delay but then proceeds to announce that he and the crew have to go back and to PSP and LAX four more times. I found that inappropriate to tell us about his work schedule when Im trying to get to the gate for my connecting flight"
Pros: "Great crew, polaris lay-flat seats are amazing (so nice to not be sitting 'next to' anyone if you have a window seat). Flight got in earlier than expected."
Cons: "Wish they didn't have the double-pronged headphone jacks so you could plug in your own headphones, or at least provide a little adapter."
Cons: "It was a mess. 5 hour delay. No re-booking. A complete sh*t show. No way to change this thing, as you guys are peddling overpriced consolidator tickets. A mess. Will probably NEVER book via KaiYak again. Horrible."
Cons: "Flight was hour and half late missed connections spent 2 hours in Chicago"
Cons: "I was seated right behind first class. While still on the runway and for about the first 15 minutes of flight, There was literally a few frozen water drops, condensation I guess, dripping down on me because it was like a walk-in cooler. I asked for a blanket and the flight attendant said they were for first class only. He did then get me one and said "I had one left." Obviously a lie... but I was grateful for the blanket at that point because I was very cold. Other than that it was a fine flight and check-in was a breeze online."
Cons: "2 hr late can't make to next flight lost one day"
Pros: "The pricepoint"
Cons: "Placed in last row, middle seat because it was the economy fare. But you get what you pay for! It was such a turbulent flight. Many people screamed. The captain never came on the intercom to address the problem."
Pros: "Great, friendly crew got us on fast and we left early ."
Cons: "Where is the leg room, I'm 5foot2 and l had trouble in the middle seat !!!???"
Cons: "I missed my original connecting flight in EWR because there was no gate available when we landed. After waiting several minutes, we taxiied to a different gate. I called customer service to let them know we were on the ground waiting for a gate assignment. Despite this, the flight boarded and left with several people missing the connection even though that flight pushed back later than its original time and departed almost an hour late. The plane was sitting there with the door closed. After that, I was put on the next available flight which was already delayed more than 2 hours. That delay extended even longer and was eventually cancelled due to weather. United CS reps were not willing to address passenger concerns. They closed the CS area in some portions of the airport forcing everyone to a very limited number of reps. I ended up having to rent a car and spending the first 5 hours of my birthday driving home. I should have been able to make my connecting flight and would have avoided the entire mess. Instead, I am out of my ticket price plus the additional cost of renting a car since my changed flight was cancelled due to weather not the gate assignment changes that originally caused me to miss the connection. What should have been a brief 4-5 hour trip ended up being almost a 20 hour day....United absolutely SUCKS!"
Pros: "Was very bad weather conditions and the crew really did well"
Cons: "We bought very cheap tickets, not understanding that we were put at the back and had NO flexibility with the tickets. Treated like ppl with "cheap tickets"."
Pros: "Crew was nice and lots of different choices of food."
Cons: "So crowded on the plane you could barely even use the restroom."
Pros: "Stroopwafels and fresh hot tea, polite crew"
Cons: "Everything went well"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant."
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "Flight on time and efficient"
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours early and checked our bags in with priority. Somehow, they still managed to get our bags stuck in Houston on a direct flight from Cancun to San Francisco. Makes absolutely no sense."
Pros: "Due to technical difficulties, the entire flight received DIRECTV service at no charge."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed without notice and we had to scramble to a new gate. Turbulence over the Rockies added time to the flight."
Pros: "I had an excellent flight, really US NAVY we all fly awesomely. Thank You."
Pros: "Tailwind got it all over faster. The flight crew was professional."
Cons: "I paid for the insurance just in case I needed to change my flight. Well I did need to change my flight to get a few more things done before returning home. The answer I recieved when I called was that I had to pay 600 dollars for the change and then file a claim for possible reimbursement. The whole round trip flight only cost $250."
Pros: "Nice, big plane"
Cons: "The entertainment went out."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful as I had limited mobility."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. The cockpit crew did an excellent job from start to finish. Great landing in Newark."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked by at least 10. The arriving flight delayed departure 45 minutes which almost caused a missed connection. The original time between connection was 90 minutes. By the time the first flight arrived, the second was already boarding."
Pros: "my granddaughter had a rough time and the crew was so nice we really had a nice flight thanks"
Pros: "What I like the best is the actual time that we're up in the air."
Cons: "What I like least is the long security line in terminal C and long delay."
Cons: "We got moved from United to American Airlines because United overbooked out first flight. We finally landed in SLC 8 hours later than we were supposed to only to be told that they had left out luggage in Chicago. It is now a week later and I still don't have my luggage! This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had!"
Cons: "Two hour delay for start of engines.. Not enough chichen and pasta was not good"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."
Pros: "It was smooth."
Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"
Pros: "The flight arrived a little early. Getting on and off the plane was easy. Getting my luggage was easy."
Cons: "My seat was changed to a very uncomfortable middle seat from the aisle seat I picked when I bought the ticket."
Pros: "Loved the ability to watch movies, and to be able to plug in and charge my electronic device. Very nice plane everything was in pristine condition. Crew was outstanding and professional. I didn't eat anything on the plane so I can't really give my opinion."
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat until I got to the gate and I ended up with a middle seat even though the flight was not completely booked. Several other passengers in my situation took it upon themselves to take the aisle seats once we started to depart the gate without asking the crew members."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival, which enabled me to make tight connection and get to destination on schedule. Premium Econ seating was comfy. UA personnel told the truth and were competent, efficient and nice."
Pros: "Very comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Do something about seat comfort and extend leg room for taller passengers. Simple as that."
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Though it was crowded but passengers were not courteaous to each other. As soon as flight landed everyone were rushing to get out without caring of others"
Cons: "The service. Crew were not at all nice. No entertainment system. No refreshments in between and kids were very hungry."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flight"
Cons: "Food very small sandwich with just cucumber and tomato"
Cons: "Really cramped seating, very little legroom. Most ic-country flights within India were more spacious."
Pros: "I am not a fussy person but how is one to sit in a long haul flight with the bathroom smell wafting out. All the passengers in the last 2 rows we're distressed. That said, the crew did the best they could with what they had by repeatedly spraying air freshener."
Cons: "The smell - last straw for me. Direct flights and 5 hours saved aren't worth this."
Pros: "I liked the bassinet for the baby. The food was good too and crew members were considerate and helpful."
Cons: "Be careful of the passengers. Even if you think the next person who is sitting next to you is an elderly, don’t think them not to be a thief. Someone stole my camera bag while i went to the bathroom to change the baby diaper."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food need to be improved"

Pros: "No socks or toothpaste or brush."
Cons: "Tv service was not available on several screens"
Pros: "When we checked our baggage in JFK, we were told that all we have to do was pick the bags and take it to transfer. But when we got to Delhi, they refused to take our bags in transfer. We were stucked with 4 luggages along with our handcarys for 17 hours & no hotel room provided by airlines."
Cons: "Inconsistency with their rules and poor poor customer service at Delhi airport. Staffs were very rude."
Cons: "Crew shuts off Two restrooms for there use only by posting sign of "Under Maintenance". These are specially one of the rear restrooms. There are only 6 restrooms in the plane, out of which crew of 5 takes one rest room for them selves. You may divide 200 passengers for 4 Restrooms."
Cons: "My prior flight was delayed from another airline so I missed boarding Air India flight. Air India would not honor or reschedule my flight even with a change fee. Had to purchase a new ticket at last minute at much higher prices. Supervisor was rude to me and unwilling to help and they gave me a middle seat after waiting another 12 hours for next flight. No thanks Air India!!!!"
Cons: "the TV was out of order"
Cons: "For the similar price as other airlines, this was a very run down plane. The direct long haul India -US flights should all be the newer planes in AIs fleet"
Pros: "Leg room, the food and the service. Highly recommend it"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment could be better."
Pros: "A lady staff (in JFK airport) helped me and my wife sit together although we had different seating rows"
Cons: "Non functioning video screens and audio jacks, they were out of food (poorly managed count of veg/non-vegetarian passengers) requested us by adjusting to eat only curry without rice or roti. This happed both for dinner and breakfast. Flight Attendants served only one drink per person and were rude when asked for one additional drink. The connecting flight was 2 hr delayed in delhi, whereas i booked shortest duration flight to Hyderabad paying $150/ ticket due to family emergency but not worth as i was 3 hours delayed overall."
Cons: "Unhygienic restroom, torn seats, frustrated stewardess. This is like passengers finding a charity and paying for airline staff. What do we call this..a failed airline. They should not be allowed to fly and passengers getting hoaxed to book this shifty airline"
Pros: "Flying time was comfortable. Pilot done a good job. Crew members r nice. Air hostesses were good."
Cons: "Hopeless food. T. V. Was not in good condition. Toilets were not clean."
Cons: "the seat covers are not clean. plus the blankets that are offered have stains. the remotes for television are almost broken. the button used for chair reclining do not work properly and needs to be pushed so hard that it keeps disturbing the passenger in the next seat."
Pros: "Direct Flight reached on schedule"
Cons: "Some of entertainment systems were not functioning"
Pros: "Seats are not good some issue with the extracted mode."
Cons: "Comfort level"
Pros: "A 14 hour flight that reached an hour early. They upgraded people for free so I got an extra leg-space seat for no extra money. Overall, a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "One or two members of the crew seemed a bit unfriendly. The majority, however, were really good!"
Pros: "Power points on economy class seats"
Cons: "Food and economy class seats. The seats were actually torn up"

Pros: "Honestly liked nothing except the part that its direct flight and thus saved layover time!"
Cons: "Air hostesses were so rude, did not even bother to smile thru out the flight! I had asked a glass of juice and too politely said at ur covenience! Looks like it wasn't convenient for them until the end, aircraft was so old!"
Cons: "The TV consoles were not working in spite of the crew trying to reset it. I think the plane was old and maintainance was not up to par"
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and served well in such as short flight. Likely food service is not suggested for such short flight. Save money on food and be more creative to serve passengers. I took Air India after a long while, as I got used to Emirates and Ethiad serving my home town Ahmadabad directly from SFO. This time I opted for Air India due to electronic ban on other flights. I paid attention to service by Air India, and I liked their service; they served with grace and attentive to passenger's needs."
Cons: "Food can be better served with a change in caterer who takes pride not just filling order old style, salad needs be taken out if it can not be preserved. Look for a better caterer. Let's look for a better menu. Don't just serve food because you have to. More needs to be explored if this is one necessary evil we need to provide for a short flight of one hour."
Pros: "Seat was broken. Crew did not care to check whether water was available, toilets had paper rolls, etc. The entertainment system was extremely slow and screen froze multiple times during the flight. Audio was very low. At max. volume, I could barely hear. Food was average. All in one flight!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "Nothing,you may better close this Flt."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Lie flat bed was comfortable"

Cons: "Condition of the plane"
Cons: "Most terrible service ever. Flight got canceled. They never paid for travel back. Air conditioning was not working. Too much smell. Plane was broken at multiple places. Terrible conditions.."
Pros: "One of the crew members was courteous"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working at my seat. Passenger in front of me also had issues with the entertainment system. Specifically the audio port had issues. Crew member suggested I shift to another seat where he said it was working. At that seat the video was not working. On being informed of the same he asked me to shift again. I didn't trust the crew and gave up. Being a long distance flight, working in flight entertainment is a necessary element. The second seat had issue while tilting back. It tilted back almost flat( broken )."
Pros: "My seat back was broken and didn't recline for a 14 hr overnight flight. The plane was seriously oversold-- people were sitting in the flight attendants' folding "jump" seats. The entertainment system for half the plane was frozen (my seat included. And though the crew offered a complaint card, it was never brought to our seat. We'll never fly Air India again."
Cons: "See above: broken seat, broken entertainment system, oversold plane."
Cons: "Less leg space Less variety of both english and hindi films"
Cons: "toilets were dirty; cabin was smelly, noisy, and cluttered; crew was barely professional"
Pros: "The crew were polite and service was good."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to leave at 3:10pm but boarding started around 3pm even without any delay notice. Also the seats were so hard and uncomfortable, especially the bottom seat. Touch screen did not work."
Pros: "Honor the selections made on your website."
Cons: "My seat, which was at the place of most disturbance, and very different from the selection made at your website."
Cons: "Passengers sat on the runway for two and half hours due to weather delays with very little communication and no food or drinks. After this wait the captain announced we would need to refuel to arrive in India. Plane is old and bathrooms generally are not kept as tidy as other airlines. Crew should compensate for the customer base. Sandwiches are barely edible...why bother at all?"
Pros: "That it's a straight flight to Delhi."
Cons: "Food wasn't great they need to update the containers that they use to serve food.plus entertainment didn't work at all.not only in my seat but most of the seats had problem.arm rest wouldn't sit up straight wen needed.plus no wifi"
Cons: "Toilets cleanliness"
