Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Service lag a little"
Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"
Cons: "The mobile application Air France didn't know the city or airport Dubai. Often same thing happens on the android application work Sheremetievo airport in Moscow"
Cons: "Entertainment worked sporadically"

Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"

Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."

Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."
Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Pros: "The airbus 380 was great and the staff very nice"
Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "Always like Air France. They are in tune with keeping the traveler updated."
Cons: "Walked all over the terminal looking for signage for Croatia Airlines. Information services sent me to the right location, but it was marked Air France. I asked serval Air France employees for Croatia Air. None new that Air France was the CA carrier. Finally found one who bothered to look it up on her computer and low and behold, AF was the carrier!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "I liked the way a fligh attandant treated me and another two passengers. At the end of the flight he gave us a cup of strawberries for all. The food was delicious specially that pasta, it was yummy."
Cons: "TV was too slow."
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Cons: "The food is awful The entertainment, i.e. movie selection, is not very good and doesn't change very much. The seats are not comfortable and my chair did not recline."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Cons: "Baggage issues!"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Crew was awesome. I couldn't get comfortable in seat but all in all good flight."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "That United waited 3 hours before they decided to use another plane when they new realistically the one we were suppose to board would never be fixed in time! Total waste of our time!"
Pros: "Plane is clean and on time"
Cons: "Only one working restroom for people on plane for over four hours. Full flight."
Pros: "Cordial airline."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "They charged for a snak but gave free nuts away. We had to purchase any sort of movies for $9. Just a rip off I rather fly with American Airlines next time!"
Pros: "Spacious searsing"
Cons: "Late timings and no proper estimation of delay time. The timings are changing for every half an hour. Which wasted lot of hours to passengers."
Pros: "The transparency of the pilot as to what was causing all of fhe delays."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay. First, the plane was running late from San Francisco (about 2 hours late). The second delay was due to someone putting way too much fuel in the plane so we had to wait for the excess fuel to be removed. Then the flight attendants ended their shift so we had to wait for another crew that was flying in from Denver. This involved us having to remove all of our things from the overhead bin and get off the plane and re-board about an hour and half later. I was supposed to make it to Dallas at 8:45 and instead didn't make it until after 12:30. It was extremely inconvenient and unpleasant. I have not experienced such a nightmare before with any previous airlines."
Cons: "Still stuck on th tarmac an hour and a half after landing in Dallas because of lightning weather conditions and no ground crew to bring the plane in. Can't they wear a rubber suit or something??"
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Pros: "The flight was very nice the Captain did an awesome job flying and the flight was awesome seeing the fireworks from the sky."
Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."

Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours for crew to come from another city that was 1 hr away, when they can just have someone from that city to work plane."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Don't remember. Was asleep"
Cons: "There was no type of entertainment and the plane was small. I thought it would have been bigger"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot and uncomfortable. The crew said they were working on cooling it down. We sat in very hot humid environment for about 15 min.

I will never ever fly with United ever again. I am flying from American Airles today at 1130am. I am still in New Jersey horrible Kayak. Horrible. They should pay for my first night at my hotel at least."
Cons: "I already wrote what I had to write. 4 delays and then cancellation! Are you kidding me? Had itinerary planned for Friday Night and that got ruined because of United Airlines stupid logistics. I will never fly United! Give me a voucher ! Give me something. Aren't even offering a cab for me to take from Jersey to LaGuardia. It's your fault people. Enough said."
Pros: "On time and early for the second"
Pros: "Boarded original plane right on time."
Cons: "Sat at gate for over an hour sweating profusely because a/c wasn't working.after 45 minutes was served half glasses of water. Made second attempt to depart gate and had to go right back.

Had to make my own arrangements to complete my trip at significant expense to myself and 0 assistance from Airlines."

Cons: "The flight left Houston late. The check in process was fine, we were asked to check our bags because the flight was full. Once on board and seated the flight attendant came on and said there were 5 bags without the proper tags for people to claim. How could they have improper tags when the person at the gate was giving the tags out? Four bags were claimed and with 1 bag (blue) left the flight attendants asked us 3 more times "whose bag it was?". When no one claimed the bag one more person from United came down the isle holding the bag asking everyone one last time. I heard him say "I was told to do this". At this time 4 more people boarded late. I thought after a certain amount of time boarding would end?"
Pros: "There were hundreds of us in O'Hare during an ice issue. I got out 20 hours later by flying standby on a bigger plane to a city 279 miles from my airport (and my car and luggage). What was edifying during those very tiring 20 hours was this - no one, United or we passengers was rude or disrespectful. Were we (staff and passengers) all worn out and tired and frustrated? You bet. Everyone kept an attitude of acceptance for the 20 hours I was at O'Hare. Very impressive - civilization has a bright future."
Cons: "Under the circumstance, nothing bad."
Cons: "United lost one of our baggage"
