Cons: "More regional movies for India"

Cons: "Food was lacking, everything else excellent! Not enough components to the meals. Be nice to have cheese/crackers. Better salad."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."

Pros: "The crew was understanding of our situation. We had a layover in Hong Kong and they moved us to the front in hopes that we will get out quicker to make the next flight."
Cons: "It wasn’t the airline fault that we were delayed nothing else could have been done"

Cons: "Same as before. Dirty and smelly. Food was ok."

Pros: "I liked the comfort of my location and seat"
Cons: "No wifi on a over 14 hour flight is ridiculous in this day and age. They didn't have wifi on both my flights. I would think twice before flying an airline so far without wifi."

Pros: "Seat and legroom ok. Seats are on the narrow side if you have a large person beside you. Supper was excellent. Breakfast so so."

Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"

Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."

Pros: "nothing to add"
Cons: "nothing to add"

Cons: "The delay of one and a half hour has resulted in a loss of half a day of holiday. Without any compensation."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food was not good"

Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours. Checked bags took over an hour to reach the claim area (not sure whose fault this was, airline or airport)."

Pros: "Enjoyed food and entertainment films."

Pros: "punctual"
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."

Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "It’s nice to lay down, but it’s not completely comfortable. Difficult to get a restful sleep this time."

Pros: "Seats were spacious enough"
Cons: "Departed about 40 minutes late without an explanation, then had to take a circuitous route around local thunderstorms which added another 30 minutes, so that we arrived over an hour late. Deplaning was also very slow, such that we cleared the airport at 1:45 AM, rather than 11:35PM as scheduled."

Cons: "Liked everything"

Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"

Cons: "Signs on the airport screens were not updated in time so estimated departure times passes without boarding notices."

Pros: "Sevices and food are good"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."

Cons: "couldnt find anything to complain about"

Pros: "Schedule of the flight"
Cons: "The food can definitely improve a little more."

Pros: "attentive and courteous crew members Landed more than an hour early extremely smooth landing toilets were clean till the end though it was a 15 hr flight"
Cons: "smaller flights"

Pros: "Flight attendants were responsive and helpful. They were also kind given the craziness they have to deal with in some customers. In flight entertainment was adequate. They seem quite reasonably organized."
Cons: "1. It was a 15+ hour flight. Only breakfast and lunch were served, where three are justified. 2. I had a pre-selected (vegetarian) meal which was both meagre and mediocre when flying out of JFK. It was a grossly insufficient amount of food for the long duration of the flight. I had what was essentially a small tray of chickpeas for 'breakfast'. Crazy! 3. The noodles that are on offer for snacks throughout the flight were chicken or beef. Vegetarians do not have anything to eat except cookies and some fruit (which goes quickly when set out!) 4. No eye mask, earplugs, toothbrush or toothpaste. These are basic amenities. Had to ask for an eye mask and then one was provided. Some airlines even provide in-flight socks (and yes, I am talking about economy travel here)."

Pros: "A very enjoyable flight experience, everything was very smooth."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "They asked me to change my seat, but when we asked to sit together with my husband, they were not able to accommodate it"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Plane was old but clean."

Pros: "I liked the orange juice."
Cons: "There were no interesting movies. There was no internet connection"

Pros: "Food was better than other airlines for economy price. Movie selection quite good as well as other options. Liked the maps."
Cons: "My seat would not move back. The audio on the movies was very difficult to hear with background engine noise. Poor clarity, and the selection of movies was excellent, so I chose not to watch. Solitaire game was complicated to understand."

Pros: "From above ---to serve us, without getting sick, great job by the crew.t"
Cons: "They had us board from gate 4 and they added a security station and we wandered around trying to find the gate. Someone should have stayed out there to tell us why we couldn't even approach gate 4. It was total confusion being seated in gate 3."

Pros: "TV controls user-friendly. Many choices."
Cons: "Cramped seats, especially when people in front lean back."

Pros: "Nice crews eating for a big guy."

Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"

Pros: "Service with hospitality impressed me.Prefer to travel in cathay pacific air lines in future travel plans."

Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "They ran out of the most popular food by the time they served us, and we were half way!"

Pros: "Stewardesses were cordial"
Cons: "would it be possible to get some Christian-friendly movies? Seats were cramped."

Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"

Pros: "Ice cream on the plane"
Cons: "my main course was not that tasty.."

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "It was big problem with boarding in BKK because passenger was without a return ticket."

Cons: "I had a flight from ZHR to HKG and further with another Airline to Shanghai. After 8 hours delay, I was not rebooked to another flight to Shanghai. Reason: We are only responsible to bring you to HKG - not further. Thanks a lot"

Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "Other airlines have complimentary snacks so I was surprised that we had to pay for those."

Cons: "Excellent legroom, unlike flight out with American Airlines. I was just unlucky in choice of seat"

Cons: "I was supposed to have a handicap chair in London & did not so things were difficult for me."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Breakfast burritos were a nice change."
Cons: "I did not like a seat under E row as the seats feel. Crammed."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the pilot did an excellent job getting us there safe."
Cons: "The food they served was not the greatest"

Cons: "This BA flight has been a mainstay for those of us in Phoenix to fly nonstop to Europe for years . Always on time . Good service . Dreaded the flight back on American flight ( via British Air). Was pleasantly surprised with a new Dreamliner which made the BA Boeing seem quite old and shabby."

Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 is absolutely the WORST designed aircraft ever — Business Class cubicles are cramped with no spaces for placing items, etc. And, this was after the very worst boarding procedures!"

Pros: "Kind and caring staff"

Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."

Pros: "Liked the big plane. Didn't particularly like the food. And although enough alcohol was offered, I thought we didn't get enough to drink to stay hydrated. ( I meant water/thee)"

Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."

Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection out of London heathrow to Budapest."

Pros: "Late taking off, but made up time in the air."
Cons: "For a long flight, it is very cramped."

Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"

Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."

Pros: "I liked that the flight crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was also pretty good overall"
Cons: "Cancellations and delays before my flight were horrible. The staff on the phone were rude and not helpful at all after waiting over an hour to speak with them."

Cons: "1. Plane engine set fire while taking off... leaking fuel. 2. My bag fee was waived, but the next day after being grounded and put in a cheap hotel for the night, I was RECHARGED $100. 3. They knew my flight left at 9pm, still gave me ONLY 1 hotel voucher so I was kicked out of the hotel at 12pm with NOWHERE to go for NINE HOURS with 125lbs of luggage. 4. They provided a good voucher, but the cheap hotel they put me in didn't have a kitchen, USELESS. 5. The flight was LATE getting to London the next day and I missed my BRITISH Airway connecting flight to Thailand. Had to wait another 7 HOURS to get a flight out. 6. Terrible service, over priced and rude agents. The agent told me " I don't know who waived your fee yesterday, but I'm not." Cold, considering the plane I was on the day before was shooting fire about to explode. 7. I was rebooked no choice of seating or consideration."

Pros: "Crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units often malfunction. Seats are cramped."

Pros: "I liked that the crew on this flight was much much nicer than my previous flight going fromLondon to NY. Another thing I liked was your entertainment , movies, series, had a nice selection."

Pros: "The flight and everything associated with it. Food, crew etc"
Cons: "Customer services failed me"

Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "No WiFi available. Bad flight tracker."

Pros: "The crew was good , helpful and freindly"
Cons: "The food was not so good but okay"

Pros: "The cabin crew member working in the area where I sat, Marc, went above and beyond his duties to make the family sitting next to me feel comfortable. Two of the children had special needs, and Marc brought the family chocolate, joking with the kids, and was available when they needed help. Well done."
Cons: "The entertainment would sometimes pause, and the screen would go black for a moment. This was very minor though."

Pros: "Nice Staff, flight on time, good customer service (they're British)!"
Cons: "Diminishing space for the human passenger, tight legroom, seats lay back, which is great if you are in one and terrible if you are behind one. And it was hot. Two years in a row. At 30,000 feet, where it's 30 below outside."

Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"

Pros: "For an hour and a half flight all went smooth."
Cons: "You can even offer your passengers a cup of water? We arrived three (3) hours before departing. Check in was so slow, and disorganized. We know it's a short flight but after a (2) two hour of check in, those Italians don't break a sweat so. offer just a cup of water!"

Pros: "Not enough room in the seating area"

Pros: "Friendly curteous cabin crew"
Cons: "Mutliple delays, lack of information."

Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."

Pros: "Flight crew was really polite. Very attentive and remembered what was requested."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Seats were really tiny. Crammed in, in all directions"

Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly. Flight left a little late but made up the time even after the big IT disaster of the day before."
Cons: "Small seats with too much recline of person in front. An odd and chaotic method for boarding."

Pros: "I liked the variety of entertainment selections. The crew kept us hydrated."
Cons: "Boarding process for coach from London to Dallas was chaotic. After all the various special groups were loaded in an orderly fashion the other 80% were called en masse which was disorderly. We had a lot of turbulence which the captain never addressed. I get he has to fly the plane but he could give folks a heads up on how long it was anticipated to last. It's scary at times and a word from the expert would be calming. Bathrooms ran out of toilet paper."

Cons: "Has taken up mobility/special assistance while bookkong but didn't get any assistance after landing at London Heathrow airport. Entire transfer at Heathrow airport for catching up next flight to Phoenix, USA lot of struggle had done because of it."

Pros: "Mostly everything was ok."
Cons: "I received water only once (plus coffe/tea option and small juice for breakfast). I needed to ask for water, i've also heard others asking for."

Pros: "Flights attend"
Cons: "Movie"

Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."

Cons: "Tried to change my return flight from Phoenix to Miami. Typical Legacy rigid inflexibility made it impossible."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old airplane, on one chair the seatbelt didn't work, on the next chair it didn't have the cushion."

Cons: "Food is not good. They are charging for specialized meal. I haven't seen any international flights that charge for meal."

Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."

Pros: "Food was good and drink selection was great."
Cons: "Personal TV screen had some visual issues. Headrest wouldn't retain its position."

Pros: "Hard to find anything positive."
Cons: "Each leg of the trip was delayed by so much that I missed each following connection. Got to Prague and found out my luggage had been lost. After filing a claim about 8:30 pm on the 19th, I had to take a taxi into town because my hotel car had been taken out of service for the night. Rotten trip to Prague."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "I counted on the airline to scedule enough time on the layover in London. We had a delay and then we had to run to plane. And the luggage made it to us two days later."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."

Pros: "Everything was generally great I don’t have any complaints."
Cons: "Well it’s nothing you can change I was pleased that the flight took 8 hours instead of 9 but because we were early it was a bit inconvenient that Heathrow had us do a “hard” arrival I think that’s what it was called so instead of a gate we got off on the tarmac."

Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."

Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"

Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"
Cons: "- Seats are very tight - Pay for luggage even on a transatlantic flight and your seat (if you want to choose) - Food was below average - even for airline standards, ran out of drink options even for dinner (the second time they serve drinks)"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, and helpful."
Cons: "I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating"

Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"

Pros: "great trip and crew"

Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

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: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"

Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."

Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese foods"

Pros: "Actually assigned a middle seat, unable to change it but found that there was nobody else in that row!!!"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "It was hastle free"

Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"

Pros: "The cabin crew bent over backwards to help."

Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "I purchased the flight as a British airways flight when it was really an American airlines flight."

Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable"

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"

Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"

Pros: "No hassle"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to check in online and couldn't find out the reason for that"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."

Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."

Pros: "Great crew!"

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"

Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."

Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Cons: "3 gate changes 2+ hours delayed leaving PHX"

Pros: "More available leg room on aisle seat."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The flight crew acted like they hated being there."

Pros: "Crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Ground crew were unfriendly and disorganized. Aircraft was old and cramped."

Cons: "We didn't make the connection because of American's incompetence on our previous flt. of Hermosillo to Phoenix."

Pros: "Being number one on the upgrade list at boarding, I appreciated being upgraded to first class as an Executive Platinum member."
Cons: "The pilot provided no departure or arrival information; he simply said cabin crew take your places for take off, and on arrival, he simply said the aircraft was one hundred miles from landing in twenty minutes with no other details enroute."

Cons: "I am a platinum member. My bag was 5 lbs over weight. I had to take items out of the suitcase and put them in my carry-on!! They weighed my suitcase and even make me take 1 lb out because the scale was 51 lbs, instead of 50! Furthermore, the flight was half empty. Then I had one extra package that I wanted to check. I was told to take it as a carry-on. I told them I thought it was too large. They disagreed. In any event, I took the package to security and was told it was too large! I am really disappointed in the service and am hoping this is not because American Airlines is now running US airways."

Pros: "Flight landed early"
Cons: "Found that seats that were booked together with family kept getting moved. Even when going back and checking the original seats were changed - so again changed so that family could sit together and once again the seats we booked to sit together were changed. Its a long uncomfortable flight, so having family next to you makes it much more bearable."

Pros: "Flight operated on time and safely"
Cons: "First class flight attendant did not recognize me by name or as an Executive Platinum member; aircraft window screen next to seat 1A was inoperative; pilots provided minimal communications and were very uninformative."

Pros: "The operations once my husband and I arrived to Phoenix Airport were absolutely horrible and caused us to miss our connecting flight home to San Diego. Our luggage took a long time to come out, then we had to stay in a 45 minute line to get through Customs, even though we didn't have anything to claim. After that, we then had to stay in another hour and a half line to get through TSA. The whole time, we kept trying to explain to the different airport staff that we had a connecting flight that we needed to catch, however nothing was being done by any of the parties to ensure that we would make it to our connecting flight. All parties (Customs, TSA, & American Airlines) just kept trying to pass the blame to each other instead of helping us and were rude on top of that. The delays were out of our control causing us to not only miss our flight, but also caused us to have to spend more money to stay at a hotel in Phoenix since the next flight available was not until the morning. This situation has also caused both my husband and me to miss work, causing us to miss out on today's wages. This entire situation has been the worst airport experience we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world. We usually fly with American Airlines, and would hate to have to go with another airline, but we would have to if this situation is not rectified, and if we are not compensated for all of the additional costs imposed on us."

This situation has also caused both my husband and me to miss work, causing us to miss out on today's wages. This entire situation has been the worst airport experience we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world. We usually fly with American Airlines, and would hate to have to go with another airline, but we would have to if this situation is not rectified, and if we are not compensated for all of the additional costs imposed on us."

Pros: "Flight late due to discovery of radio not working just before flight departure. My seats had less room than seate in front of me and it would not recline leaving me an unacceptable amount of space."
Cons: "It got to Hawaii and my bags also made it. Since flight was late I could not get my rental car costing me more money."

Cons: "We travel to Kauai every year with 3 little kids and every year the crew runs out of food. On a 7 hour flight, there should be food or snacks available for purchase of you are past the first 5 rows"

Pros: "The flight operated safely and the flying time was shorter than normal."
Cons: "Delayed departure from PHX by more than one hour; no beverages provided to first class passengers after boarding and inspite of delayed departure; first class flight attendant did not recognize that I had preordered my meal entree nor did he ever call me by name as an Elite Platinum member. The aircraft leather seat back 1F was torn leather, showing signs of poor maintenance of the interior cabin. No electric outlets at seat for recharging portable electronic devices."

Cons: "My pre-assigned seat was not available at boarding. The crew skimped on offering water after the main drink service."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice and very responsive"
Cons: "The food was not that good"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly crew, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No suggestions."

Pros: "I requested and picked a window seat but unfortunately. Got isle seat. I requested a Muslim meal and I got pork in my choices."
Cons: "Honer the requests ."

Pros: "Safe landing, that’s all that matters."
Cons: "The entrances by groups. I get it, I just don’t care for it."

Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"

Pros: "It was a bus trip. No food, crappy seats, and treated like we were cattle. The only positive was United’s new direction? The seats are smaller but yield more leg room. They will probably rethink that. There is inflight entertainment if you have your own device with WiFi and a screen. So pros and cons, but essentially a bus trip."
Cons: "Most disliked the seats. Not very comfortable for a three hour trip."

Cons: "Lost luggage’s"

Cons: "Seats were too small."

Pros: "Everything was usual, nothing special."
Cons: "The planes were late, but more importantly they lost my luggage somewhere."

Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."
Cons: "The counter staff were grumpy from the minute they arrived at the service gate desk."

Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attendents were very nice."
Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "-"
Cons: "No reply from the airlines regarding my damaged baggage."

Pros: "Crew was mostly friendly"
Cons: "Leg room has vanished"

Pros: "Flying through the night freed me up the next morning. I'll fly red eye anytime."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "Delay boarding, wait for a seat ticket, and gate to next terminal"

Pros: "Like other airlines, United is charging more fees for seats to food. And the food they sell is bad. The breakfast was microwaved to horification. Why are airlines permited to give such low levels of service? Why are they allowed to charge extra fees for ordinary seats? And no complimentary entertainment. All that NOTHING" service and for very high fees.I got suckered into paying a lot extra for premium Economy. The Premium was the extra money they stole. The Economy was the new definition of bare bones."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about the flight."

Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"

Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"

Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Luggage got stuck in plane, 1 1/2 hour wait at carrousel! Newark sucks to get out, took two atemps with 2 GPS and 2 people trying to decifer NJ's crappy road signs!"

Pros: "Entertainment was good... Kept me engaged... Crew were reasonable with their service"
Cons: "Food tasted horrible. I have travelled in multiple airlines in the past including British Airways, Emirates, South African, Delta and more. Food is by far inferior to any of the other airlines."

Cons: "Ride bumpy. Nothing crew did all mother natures fault Food and sandwich choices awful very little legroom No entertainment"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Like others have said, the in-flight entertainment isn't free (even a few channels) so it is pretty useless."

Pros: "The comfort was as expected"
Cons: "Poor service from personnel both at the airport and in the plane and there were no snacks or drinks offered"

Pros: "Stall and crew polite"
Cons: "Internet and seats"

Cons: "Service. Flight attendant negative attitude and disrespect for customers."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash. Quite possibly the only nice thing I can say about this flight."
Cons: "No built in personal entertainment for a 12 hour flight. If you had already downloaded the United app, you could connect a personal device to their wifi for free and watch from there (if you didn't download the app prior to takeoff, you were screwed). Also, no USB charging outlets were available. I live in Korea and don't have an American style outlet to connect to a USB, so my devices died. The provided tiny aisle TV which played programmed shows and movies kept freezing, skipping, and turning off. Entertainment is usually the saving grace for budget int'l flights, whose food, service, and comfort can be expected to suck. Next time I'll shell out for Korean Air or Asiana."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plane was clean"
Cons: "Unorganized seating system. Snappy staff."

Pros: "New plane, clean and blankets for the overnight flight"
Cons: "I was in the 4th boarding group (even though I checked in the first possible moment), I had to put my belongings 15 seats away from me."

Cons: "The 3 hour layover in Chicago. Why I had to go to Chicago then back to Moline. Kinda dumb. Food tad bit on the pricey side."

Pros: "great"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, too long of a layover"

Pros: "Flight was good"

Cons: "This flight was delayed and delayed and canceled at the last minute. I couldn't make my connecting flight and had to send the night in the airport. No compensation was offered and I had to change to American Airlines, which was great."

Pros: "Crew was fine, plane was new and in good shape, seat was typical and fine."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi was available as described on seats"

Pros: "Nothing. I hate sitting in the back of the plane and I hate the middle seat."
Cons: "The middle seat and lack of food and no screen in the back of the seat."

Pros: "Charged for wi-fi never worked. Every employe I felt with was extremely rude. Never again"

Pros: "It took an additional 45 min to leave the gate after boarding and then when we landed it took an hour to taxi to the gate. THEN when I got my bags I had to walk to another gate, but the underground train was not in use since it was too late. I have to walk on a boot because of an Achilles injury... It was horrible. I didn't get to my car until an hour and a half AFTER getting my bags. I left Phoenix at 7pm and didn't get to my apartment until 2am. And I had to get up for an 8am meeting the next day. I will say the crew on the flight was amazing and upbeat- they made the trip!"

Cons: "Flight was oversold and delayed- twice."

Pros: "Smooth ride, comfortable seating"
Cons: "The Tsa was the slowest I've ever seen in my entire life no exaggeration"

Cons: "My flight was eventually rescheduled 13 hours later."

Pros: "It was okay, but not the best for my first time with United."
Cons: "Lady was rude when I was asking what beverages she was serving."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Missing my international connection, having to spend 24 hours in San Francisco, not able to reschedule on a different flight. United paid for my hotel and gave me three $7 food vouchers. They only gave me 4oz of soda...I asked for the can and the flight attendant was rude. I wouldn't pay $7.99 for 3 hours of wifi."

Pros: "They put me on the back row on the aisle. I was extremely tired but could not get any sleep. People brushing by me. Try to change my sitting before but was denied. As I walked on the plane there were many open seats I could have sat at. But those who paid more money and the standbys got those seats. I do not like United preference of people. I was the low man on the totem pole."
