Cons: "My son dropped his phone in business class seat and the ground staff technician claimed it wasn’t there. Theft at its best! Swiss Air better take responsibility for their shady staff and agree to replace my don’s Phone promptly or we will take this to the public eye and courts. I’m sure we could get a big class action suit."

I think as a rule that if the staff notices some uncourteous person reclining completely in coach and there is someone behind them, especially if it is a person with longer legs, that they might nicely suggest to that reclining person that they are rude and should recline less. the staff on this plane did nothing of the sort for several violators of this type"

Pros: "on time flight; friendly staff"

Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Cons: "NO MOVIES."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Cons: "Flight late"
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."

Pros: "The food was pretty decent."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."
Pros: "The airplane too small the seat too tight"
Pros: "Cabin was clean"
Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."

Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."

Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"

Cons: "Was not able to track the progress of the flight on the monitors No entertainment Seats do not provide comfortable leg room"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and nice to kids"

Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."

Cons: "Seats are so crowed that you can not move without touching the people next to you. My body was so cramped by the time I got to Chicago I could hardly move. Plus we were stranded on the runway which prevented us from leaving the plane for another hour. It was so hot and stuffy in there. This made for an even longer day because I had a 3 hour drive after getting to Chicago to my home"
Pros: "Crew always smiled"
Cons: "Free food was lacking for a 5 hr flight. Pretzels and a pack of cookies."
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "Naplaćene su mi torbe u San Diego po 58$ iako je to bilo uračunato u cenu pri kupovini karata !!! Za torbu od22kg(48),i torbu od15kg 116$! Nije korektno!!!! Brukaaa!!!Sramota!!Nikad više sa tom compani!! Never again!!!! Never!!!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, smooth ride"
Cons: "Again 30 minute delay to get internet working. At least this time they communicated the issue."
Pros: "The flight was very good and no problems were encountered."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Short and sweet no problem"
Pros: "It was quite average, nothing special.They severed some drinks and you get a bag of pretzels. The staff was very friendly and nice. It was only a 1 1/2 flight, so the only entertainment is magazines."
Cons: "The legroom was fine for me, but if you are about 6ft tall or over, you will feel a little cramped. Try to get an exit row seat if can."
Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"
Cons: "At boarding/check-inn there was inly one young women to handle the crowd of passengers boarding. She was over worked, but did real welll!!!"
Cons: "I had charged 300$ for my extra luggage this morning at the checking ....it never happened to me before usually I paid 100$ but never that much... I will never ever flight with United again for sure."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "I am lucky to check-in earlier with United, staffs at counter is very nice and courtesy, he was able to book an earlier flight so I could catch up on time with my scheduled flight to China, I was boarding the United 9:45 but its departure was roughly around 11:15 am"
Cons: "Flight delay that could affect my international flight connection Which I had only 1:05 between flight"
Cons: "Made me take off sweater out of my bag cause my bag was 0.5 lbs over weight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and luggage was not lost. In flight meal service was better than average."
Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."
Cons: "United and SAS are really separate and hard to manage reservation. Seats changed from what I purchased and it was uncomfortable. I don't think I will do a mixed airline flight again even though they quote them as a Star Aliance. Also, flying through Chicago ORD is not great. The international terminal is completely separate so you have to take a train, pour out water, enter security (and they don't have a TSA Pre). All around uggh."
Pros: "This reflects first leg flight from San Fran to Chicago."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the next morning because of weather"
Pros: "Bad weather caused my flights to be re-routed, but United did wonderful in arranging for an similar arrival time to my final destination. I am very grateful for that. I can't judge the airline on something they have no control over."
Cons: "The bad weather that caused my flights to be re-routed!"
Pros: "The Stroopwaffle"
Cons: "The hour delay"
Pros: "We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Bathroom is too small. Announcements were anxiety inducing. Sick people on the airplane spreading germs."
Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"
Pros: "Crew were nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't know i needed an app before i will be able to enjoy entertainment on board, so i had to pay for internet to be able to download the app to be able to watch movie. PA system wasn't gud."
Pros: "Both flights were great! They left on time, the one from San Diego left earlier than scheduled. Kayak was most informative with flight info and upon arrival, indicating the bagage claim number via email!"
Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."
Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."
Pros: "Every time the winds shift south they get delayed or cancel flights to smaller airports."
Cons: "Multiple gate shifts, lack of communication with customer. Blaming flight cancellation on weather at destination when that wasn't the case at all. Geez don't lie it's not necessary! Had to take flight to Portland extra two hours of ground travel. No reimbursement. Weather issue you can't blame us. Funny the 737 had no issues departing SFO to PDX."
Pros: "I like the complementary soda. The boarding groups system is smart."
Cons: "I don't care for the wifi options. Loud children."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous crew"
Pros: "Even with rough weather the flight was comfortable and only delayed 20 minutes. The flight crew kept us well informed."
Cons: "No complaints. I did ask for a seat belt extender and never received it but managed to keep it buckled although it was a tight squeeze."
Cons: "Crumbs, fruit peels, and other debris all over the seating area in my row. Seemed like united was more concerned about getting plane back in the air than creating a sanitized and comfortable experience for the next passenger. Simply disgusting conditions to spend 4.5 hours of your life."
Pros: "Great seat"
Pros: "Window seats on both flights saved me on my overnight flight. Thanks Kayak!"
Cons: "The second flight had a pretty old plane with smaller seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "no snacks unless you pay"
Cons: "seats are too tight"
Pros: "That United got me to where I wanted to go."
Cons: "That airline companies are so strict about making changes & the cost involved. I couldn't believe the price to change a date on a return flight. I went to Alaska airlines & bought a one way ticket for $30 less than the price of the change. Better times & schedules too. I was at one time a premier flyer almost a 1K status flyer with United. Now, I don't even bother. United Airlines Suck!!!!!"
Pros: "This leg of the trip was fine, on time and they provided blankets! Satisfied, but the mobile version of this rating site does not allow me to change the rating to higher."
Pros: "Kyak Notified me every step of the way basically dummy proofed my flight don't know if other sites do this as well but got gate change notifications and all changes!!"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The video screen could not be turned off and kept waking me up, bad on an overnight flight."
Cons: "The flight seemed very unorganized. Once we had to make a random refuel in Canada I knew something was up besides the bad weather excuse they gave. The crew didn't seem to be able to pass any information along and gave either misleading info if any at all. There was no food or snacks given with it being a 5 hour flight to a 7 hr flight with the mishap to get more fuel."
Pros: "That I got bumped to first class on my flight the next day."
Cons: "I had a 47 minute layover scheduled. I had an hour delay on my first flight and they didn't hold anyone's connecting flight, which ended up being the last flights out for the night. By the time we got hotel vouchers, our bags and a shuttle to the hotel there was less than 4 hours to actually sleep. If I had known how slow the process was I would have opted to sleep in the airport so I got more than 3 hours of sleep."
Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "United Airlines has one job, to move people from one location to the next. I'm concerned that United thinks it's in the data transfer business or the package hauling business or some kind of "gotcha' Internet business. There were never enough people at United to help me with my problem. Those real human employees that I found were mostly overworked, over regimented and procedure focused."
Pros: "Friendly stewardist"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for close to four hours. Staff at the airport did not keep us updated about the flight changes. Nothing was offered to passengers as compensation for our missed family activities, wasted time away from out loved ones, etc. This is my first time flighting with United Airlines and I did not have a good experience."
Pros: "That being said, I liked that they has Moscow Mules for purchase. The gate agent was very kind & helped check my husbands bag as the overhead bin space was full. The crew was fine."
Cons: "My first beef with United is that I needed to change my flight 36 hours after purchasing it & wanted a 200.00 change fee for a 79.00 flight, it was more cost effective to purchase a new ticket to with another airline than change my ticket. Silly really."
Pros: "Smaller plane! Easy board, quick flight"
Cons: "Seats are packed in, no wifi, arrived way early sat on tar mat no fresh air my chest was hurting from the smell of jet fumes until we finally pulled into a gate!"
Cons: "Waiting for 3 hrs past boarding time for crew to arrive. Waiting on plane for 11/2 for plane to b de iced. Waiting for crew to get permission to fly because they went past hrs to fly"
Cons: "The fact that they kept delaying it by 30 minute intervals for four hours until eventually it was cancelled. Oh and now the new flight is delayed 30 minutes."
Pros: "I liked everything feel comfortable flying by air plane"
Pros: "The seats from San Diego to Dullas airport were fine and not too tight"
Cons: "The fact that there was no entertainment system on our way back when there was one on my way to San Diego (even though it cost 7.99$) And the wifi was 15.99$ !!?? Seriously??! It's 2015 .. There should be no flight that lasts that long and not have an entertainment system !"
