Pros: "My flight was postponed or delayed as the airline like to call it until the next day due to Narita International Airport closing after 11pm! First of all I didn’t realize major international airports closes especially with a airplane still on the runway! After our flight was “delayed” Korean Airlines scrambled to get us into hotels. This process was very poorly organization and many of us non Japanese speakers were left very confused because they kept forgetting to interpret what they said into English. I had to keep reminding them. We had to stay in long lines throughout the process which took up at least 3hrs. On top of that we waited at least 45 minutes the day after to get our new boarding passes! I was so over my trip to Japan by then and very disappointed with how Korean airlines handled the situation. I will most likely not take Korean airlines again and it will be a long time until I take another trip to Japan."

Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "It would be nice to have Wi-Fi in economy class."
Pros: "The crew was great."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Being seated in the back Luggages coming in last when my friends who travelled with us got theirs way way ahead of us"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew was nice"

Pros: "Cleanliness and professional crew."
Pros: "More legroom Excellent service Good good"

Cons: "Ths length of the flight, but that is normal."
Cons: "Lack of food option for vegetarian"
Cons: "Although I had already checked in on line and had a boarding pass, I stood in line for ninety minutes at Incheon just to self-drop a bag. That's just not acceptable. I'd avoid Incheon and Korea Air for future flights for this reason."
Pros: "Service of the flight attendants was excellent, they were courteous, pleasant and professional sort of like the old days of the flying industry. Language was a bit difficult for me to interpret however they took whatever time needed to make sure I understood their communication. Everything is tidy and clean. A good variety of movies, games, music and information channels was provided.I will fly korean Air in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge because the gate staff did not announce in English. It would be more organized if they boarded sets of rows in sequence instead of mass boarding for economy. Also had a problem with transfer at Bangkok Airport. Fortunately I had adequate time for the connecting flight but the transfer area was not opened until 7pm. The transfer process is all new to me and not really easy to understand until the first experience. The Arrival and departure boards rotate airline information which was initially difficult to understand. The headsets were a problem in reference to fitting, volume and quality of tone."
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and very helpful"
Pros: "Good service. All attendants and crews were nice and friendly."

Cons: "There were no outlets on the plane to charge my devices and it was very cramped in my seating area."
Cons: "Boarding and long waiting time after arriving at the airport"
Pros: "Overall, the flight back from Seoul to Atlanta was better than our previous experience. At least this time the flight attendants were more attentive and prompt to ask if you need anything. Entertainment was good and so were the meals. I appreciate the two meals and beverages."
Cons: "Seats are just uncomfortable (not enough cushion and no back support) and the little extra space is not noticeable after so many hours sitting in a long flight such as this one. The lavatories could use a cleaning sometime along the flight. Our flight was packed so after so many people using them, they were not looking or smelling their best. Tickets are expensive. It was also warm most of the time."
Pros: "It was all good. Really no complaints."

Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"
Pros: "I had a headache and I asked for getting aspirin to one flight attendant. Later on, I found out that many attendants were aware of my situation and kindly checked-in regularly if I was OK. Excellent hospitality no matter what kind of class your seat was!"
Pros: "The time is on time ."
Pros: "Not crowded"
Cons: "Both flights took off late one flight was over an hour late I missed my connecting flights and was forced to take 2 additional flights instead of my direct flight The food is Japanese cuisine, if you are ok with experimenting and like their cooking. The flight attendants were not able to communicate with us in English regarding our missed flights"
Pros: "ANA has done well recently, with top notch offerings of food, flight crew, entertainment, and creature comforts. The food options consistently good (and I do enjoy the small touches like the candy at the end), and they are very friendly!"
Cons: "The music... it's catchy... but too catchy and I find myself whistling it for an hour or so after the flight!"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."
Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"
Pros: "Entertainment system, comfort of the seats, staff, food, basically everything!"
Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Flight was congested."
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"

Pros: "Some of the crew were friendly, certainly not all of them."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Lay flat beds and vegetarian food"
Cons: "This company í overrated. Obvious lack of organization in the boarding process that led to a late departure. Not a sympathetic crew, which had to be reminded the protocols (upright seats before take off) while being inflexible on other things. Chaotic food service. Average entertainment."

Pros: "This flight was as expected from Emirates airlines, They always make sure that the crew on flights to Europe and Usa is the best."
Cons: "Comparing this flight on Emirates airlines which is from Bahrain going to spain with the previous flight on Emirates airlines as well but was going from Bahrain to Dubai there is a huge difference starting from Time professionalism and crew treatment and captain experience on making the flight comfortable the level of everything changes my flight to Spain was very comfortable and quite and the food was delicious the crew was very helpful and polite the captain is very professional and he made us feel very comfortable in this flight smooth take of and landing."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, even to some (1) unruly person at check in."
Cons: "Hello- The system for online checking was down (I think) it took a lot of time to check in. By the time we got to passport control, there was a huge line and an hour and half was left before take off. Anyways we joined the line. Half way through, 45 min before flight (flight was eventually delayed for an hour I think but we did not know that at the time) we realized that we were definetly going to get late and were looking for any Emirates person (whilst in line) who could guide us. Eventually someone did came and told a group (some way ahead of us) that people flying to Lahore and Karachi can go to another office for passport control (we ran to that office). I believe instead of sending 1 person to a line of say 300+ people to fetch for people for Lahore and Karachi can devise a contingent plan for these kind of situations. Maybe use a hand held digital board asking passengers with Flight no:XXX to head to a place so and so. Maybe megaphone can be used. Instead of passenger anxiously trying to get to 1 person whilst keeping in line to get some important information. In flight I used the button twice to call a crew member for some juice and water. But nobody came. But that might be understandable as there was a lot going on some 1 hour after dinner I think and is not a big problem. Don't know what kind of coordination they have with Dubai airport staff, seemed least bothered."
Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"
Pros: "service , crew , food entertainmentminimal"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "server told person asking to take away her tray that she did not have three hands"
Pros: "Price on my ticket was great and comfort was good"
Cons: "The ground staff at Bangalore in India had no idea on crowd control. Before they started boarding they made no announcements. The agents would talk amongst themselves but there were no announcements. With the result that everyone rushed at once for boarding. The lady agent who was scanning the passes kept yelling at people to form a line but by then it was too late On the flight, they ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat!!"
Pros: "The New York office was good enough to call and get the necessary information from me, Yet, in the end I had to call many times to locate the whereabouts of the missing bag."

Pros: "Enough room to move around. Very much spacious"
Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly.

Cons: "When we landed we had to take the bus"
Pros: "Both the crew and the persons in reception were really helpful!"

Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Great terminal staff at check in."

Cons: "Having a clear gate to take advantage of being early."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline. Will avoid flying through Delta if they allow their team to lie to their passengers. Both land crew and onboard crew were disrespectful to their passengers."
Cons: "agent boarding delayed boarding because she wanted everyone to check their bags. A flight that was leaving 2 minutes later than our flight started boarding before our plane. It wasn't that the 2 planes arrived at different times. The agent was just horrible. In the end, she lied to the passengers that there were no overhead space left. When I went to get my seat, most of the overhead space was empty!! I had to check-in my bag and my bag was damaged by the delta crew."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "More refreshments for longer flights."
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Cons: "It felt like the flight attendant had a long day. Chairs weren't super comfortable."
Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"
Pros: "Easy, fast, simple. Not crowded."
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Pros: "Boarding so efficient we left early and arrived super early."
Cons: "WiFi on plane dropped out a lot."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking was poorly handled. Might get bumped from rebooked flight as well."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."

Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, and delayed again, and finally delayed to 18 hours after original takeoff time. I was rebooked on a flight for the following after, and that flight has been delayed twice so far. Never again will I fly Delta."
Cons: "That I never made it to my destination"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Uncertainty re connections at JFK provoked some anxiety but the pilot and crew were helpful in allaying that."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."
Pros: "The cookies on board were tasty."
Cons: "There was no gate agent until another passenger went all the way to another gate to retrieve one. The flight kept getting delayed, but no one made any announcements about why or even that there was a delay. Passengers just kept noticing the time change on the flight info board. On board, if you didn't buy into Delta's classist system of paying for an "extra comfort" seat (which, by the way, is a regular seat), you were seated in a tiny shoved in extra row where even my 8 year old's knees bumped the seat in front of us while seated. I will never fly Delta again, particularly with them being one of the priciest options."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "Fast boarding and short time from gate to take off."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."
Pros: "The crew and everyone was very informative and helpful in keeping us informed about our delays."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs also, my baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."
Cons: "This flight never happened bc they didn't have a captain for the plane. Not a delay - not maintenance issues - just didn't have a captain so sorry your flight is cancelled. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed we were deplaned during the delay, always a plus. The flight was fast to help make up time."
Cons: "Take off,flight and landing were a bit rough, but as it was only partially due to weather, understandable. A little difficult to endure the speed and sharpness."
Pros: "Everything was on time & comfortable."
Cons: "The cold I caught on the way to my destination, but, Oh well. Such is life."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was fast"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and caused me to miss an appointment in New York. I could've driven back to New York and I would've been home faster."
Pros: "Polite attendants."
Cons: "Overall look of aircraft is poor. Ac Outlet was not working. Snacks were terrible. Dirty."
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "delay too long"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Pros: "Now that you asked - the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The snack was adequate but I don't think very healthy. I didn't eat it on the second flight. Not sure what - the plane - wind patterns - pilot - but it was a pretty rocky flight from RDU to DEN. You should give NA as an option cause I didn't use the entertainment"
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
Pros: "Everything went how it should."
Pros: "Can't usually go wrong, 1st flight of the day!"
Pros: "Good leg room. The snack was good - a waffle cookie. Crew was cheerful. Plane was clean."
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Pros: "I liked the entire flying experience. It was ideal. Best part to me was the pre check and not having to go thru the line. Flight left early, arrived early, I had a middle seat and it was comfortable."
Pros: "The free programming on your personal device"
Cons: "Drink (Alcohol) options could be better"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Pros: "this flight was only an hour long but it was enjoyable. made it home earlier which is always great. I like having only two seats on each side rather than 3."
Cons: "as short as the flight was, there were a few disturbances. first, the two kids behind me were off the wall. it wasn't a baby crying, they had to be 5 and 7 just screaming and being so loud when their parents just laughed. at 8pm It would have been nice for a crew to quiet them down. second, there was a disturbance by a woman who had to be escorted off the plane which caused us to sit not knowing anything going on for the extra 20 minutes on the runway. I'm so glad they got her off for our safety but we were in the dark about the situation. And United, you need to up your snacks."
Pros: "crew members."
Cons: "got delay."
Pros: "All was very good"
Cons: ". Before boarding they said flight was full and there wouldn't be enough room in overhead compartment, so I checked in my carry all. After landing I expected to pick it up as we exited the plane and was told it was on the carousel ."
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "The plane was on time the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Pros: "No drama. Everything on time. Crews were great."
Cons: "Seats cramped but I'm 6'7" so I should have put more effort into getting a bulkhead or emergency exit seat. My fault."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Arrive on time at each gate"
Cons: "Needed more movies"
Pros: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"
Pros: "Friendlier attendance."
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
Cons: "The area around me was very dirty. Made me a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."
Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."
Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."
Pros: "The whole experience was great, plenty of room in the seats and leg room. Fun flight"
Cons: "It was all good . Can't say the same for the flight from Huston to Seattle"
Pros: "After having worked Monday 10 am until 7 pm AND then10 pm to4 am i was exhausted boarding a 6:50 am flight. Needless to say i was asleep before we left the runway. No-one bothered me, and I slept the entire flight. Didn't wake up until we landed in Newark and the tires hit the runway. Thanks United!! I'll def be utilizing your airlines again!!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no snacks were handed out."
Pros: "RDU to EWR was fine, but the return flight was way oversold, and we didn't even get seat assignments until it was time to board. I purchased our tickets months ago, checked in 24 hrs before, and did not check bags, but we still had to stand online and keep reminding the gate agents that we did not have seats and that my three year-old had a car seat that needed to go in a window seat. Once on board, the first clas flight attendant was awesome! She helped us fix a seating nightmare (agent had given my 3 y/o a seat by himself) and came back to coach during the flight to give my son some wings and to just check on us. She and our safe arrival are the only aspects of the entire experience that deserve any stars whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "A lady on the plane threw up 5 plus times. The vomet got me and other passengers. The flight crew did not clean it up and was very rude. We I complained I was told " Who do I think I am" I responded I am a paying passenger. I am very disappointed in United the way this matter was handled and the nonprofessional attitude of the flight crew. This is a very concerning due to the unsanitary and health risks involved. United should look into this ."
Cons: "no food< no entertainment, crying babies, why can some flights be for adults only?"
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "No movies nor Internet"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
