Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("

Pros: "Last row seats are never optimal but tha flight attendants were above par!!!"
Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."

Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"

Pros: "All would have been good if there was no animal inside a 14hr long flight. Dog allowed to use restroom that passengers uses and it was a BIG dog in a controlled environment for a 14 hour long flight. Hugely disappointed with the pet policy of Qatar airways, especially for all the parents traveling with kids."
Cons: "HUGE DOG INSIDE A 14 HR FLIGHT FROM QATAR TO CHICAGO DISAPPOINTED WITH QATAR AIRWAYS PET POLICY"

Cons: "Some Cabin Crew are RUDE fromEven though Cabin Crew manage to gave us what we preferred to eat. They are the best. Doha -Kathmandu. They treated some senior citizens passengers who wouldn’t understand english with some disrespect. In addition, we had some problem with meal that was pre-ordered. It was probably system glitch but our meal selection wasn’t registered and Crew didn’t have idea about our meal."

Pros: "Great service. Great food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Space is somewhat small for a short flight and totally unbearable if you go Sao Paulo-Doha."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "We enjoyed the comfort, food , staff and entertainment."
Cons: "The queuing for check-in, luggage control and plane boarding was much too long, 1 1/2 hrs +. The online check-in couldn't be used."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."

Cons: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"

Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Friendly crew Good choice of food and beverage"
Cons: "Aircraft changed without notice Trapped in cramped window seat No storage bins IFE strobing windows tabs and would not switch off Useless design of chair lead to loss and destruction of my Kindle"

Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Way to crowed and...you know how u see the clown car in a circus...this was a clown plane...seats are horrible just all together a frustrating flight..."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Toilet was a bit messy. Menu can be improved"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"

Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."

Cons: "Length"

Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."

Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "Flight departure could have been on time"

Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."

Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"

Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"

Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"

Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."

Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."

Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."

Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"

Cons: "My baggage was lost."

Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"

Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."

Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."

Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"

Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"

Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"

Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"

Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"

Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."

Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."

Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."

Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"

Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"

Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"

Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."

Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."

Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."

Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"

Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."

Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"

Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."

Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"

Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."

Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."

Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."

Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
