Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by two hours. The one of the crew members - I think his name was Gerry - was quite rude and negligent: for example he did not give an infant life vest to our baby saying that it won't be needed..."
Cons: "The flight attendants were helpful enough, but they did not offer as many drinks as I like. Breakfast was only coffee, tea or water. No juice at all."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. The staff was extremely friendly. The games on the video screen weren't bad."
Cons: "There was a technical problem with the plane at our gate when we landed, so we were on the tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate to open. Video choices were limited, and Internet was extremely overpriced."
Pros: "Staff where unbelievable nice and kind"
Pros: "The crew was great once aboard, the food was well above average for airplane food, the drinks were reasonably priced and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Attempting to check in online the day before was a nightmare and after half an hour on two different sites and an hour of speaking to very rude customer service reps for both BA and Aer Lingus, we were told we just had to check in in person. The check-in line opened fifteen minutes late, the woman who checked us in didn't answer our questions because she was busy talking to her friend. Once on the plane the Airbus seats were truly awful and should not hold a person for 10+ hours. The wifi also never worked."
Pros: "Great choice of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The underseat area for storing carryon is SMALLER than on my last trip in Aer Lingus. My simple backpack which has always fit under would not this time."
Pros: "Cabin crew very professional."
Cons: "Stop making the seats smaller, narrower, and closer together, food was awful."
Cons: "At checkin the crew at Aer Lingus claimed that they could not issue a Gate pass, which is offered by all other airlines at SFO."
Pros: "Aer lingus took good care of us, and put us up at a hotel."
Cons: "Could not get a replacement flight and had to book with another airline and different route. Hoping the refund process will go smoothly."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable on the newer plane and the in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "The airline features an upgrade yourself bid option that starts at a minimum bid. We went above this and got rejected, only to find there were still open seats. They tried to then upsell is at 4x the cost which makes the entire thing seem terribly dishonest. After calling customer service, they hung up on me. It’s clearly a scam to extract more pricing data from customers."
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. They kindly reminded us of safety, but also due to me not making up my mind for drinks I asked for a ginger ale later in the flight and the staff were sweet enough to give once they finished what they were doing. They also were good at accommodating when my partner was unsure what food he would like and gave a good suggestion. Thank you, the Sheppard’s pie was delicious."
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable than flying on a Dreamliner. I like the 2-4-2 layout."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were very unprofessional and I could hear them in the back while taxiing for take-off complaining about the job. The food was terrible and was served 3 hours after take-off. Every flight I've taken to Europe has at least had extra water bottles in the back of the plane and this flight had nothing. However, my flight from DUB to SFO was great. The flight attendants were happy, the food was good and they had extra water bottles in the back of the plane for everyone to use. I think the service suffers significantly on flights to Dublin from the US."
Pros: "Great Plane, Fantastic service. Did their best to take care of us. Provided us with vegetarian meals and requested and plenty of drinks, including wine and beer."
Cons: "Boarding a bit disorganized, but this seems to be an issue with most flights."

Pros: "Crew was very considerate."
Cons: "Two hour flight delay small aisle/seats."
Pros: "Staff was nice."

Cons: "The seat was to narrow once the person in front of me recline her sit. Luckily the plane was not full and was able to seat somewhere else."
Pros: "Flying overnight across the U.S., and then the Atlantic, to Dublin would have been very difficult if not for the accommodations and service provided by Aer Lingus. The reception was warm and comfortable. The in-flight food and service was perfect. The environment was conducive to sleeping during this red eye flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints, to be honest. The flight attendants were so welcoming and accommodating to every request. They were efficient and quick to respond to my questions and requests."
Pros: "Prompt Rebooking. The new schedule was better the original schedule with fewer connections."
Cons: "My original flights from Dublin to London and London to Munich were cancelled. The booking agency Webjet did not inform me about the cancellation. I noticed changes to my schedule three days before the flight and requested a rebooking. The entire leg to Munich was rebooked by Webjet but again I had to call and ask for an update since they don't issue a second round of confirmation emails."
Cons: "One of the on flight crew members was extremely rude, ignoring repeated request for coffee - skipping my husband when she was offering routinely in order, didn't respond to several calls after she skipped then gave him water, acted annoyed when he reiterated he wanted coffee like everyone else. Also insisted my sleeping 7 yr old upright his chair for beverage service when everyone around us had their seat reclined(the people around us were all Caucasian btw) and she didn't seem to feel the need to remind them."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and accommodating to me, my wife, our 3-year-old and 1-year-old for both legs. The planes were in good shape and everything was on time. The balthrooms were clean and felt spacious. I didn't eat the dinner because we ate a large dinner before the long flight. I did tasted it and it was good. The selections of movies was also very good."
Cons: "Thw system they use for in flight entertainment was a little glitchy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. They also lost my luggage. Very poor and rude customer service."
Pros: "The flight attendants on board were nice. The ticket counter woman at SFO who put my luggage on another flight should have read my itinerary. A colleague at work said aer Lingus loses luggage and this is exactly what happened."
Cons: "The 1.5 hour delay to board the plane; the fact that my luggage went astray."
Pros: "Dublin airport easy to transfer Price was top I did not eat the lunch"
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed new enough. The flight crew were all pleasant."
Cons: "Leg room is atrocious. Food is sub par even fornairline food. The drink cart should be brought around more than once. My entertainment centre was off or in disrepair for large portions Of the flight, and the plug on tomcharge the phone was not only in a difficult place down. Wtween seats but was not functioning. I paid for an internet connection I couldn't use be aide of a dead phone."
Cons: "No snacks nor drinks offered at night. Breakfast was meager."
Cons: "I made my reservations for British Airways and the flight was by Aer Lingus."

Cons: "Luggage was delayed and delivered 24+ hours later to our hotel."
Pros: "Fantastic flight service"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for three days. Had to buy clothing. Staff seemed dismissive when I went in a search on the third day back to the EDI airport. They said they didn't have any information about it and that it was probably in Dublin. Later it showed up at my hotel with no call or notification. Not acceptable. Probably will avoid Aer Lingus in the future."
Cons: "The food was terrible, could not consume."
Cons: "Entertainment options VERY limited! Plane was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "Inability to choose seats. Flight attendants come around infrequently and so quickly you can't even ask for a water."
Pros: "What did I like? Not much."
Cons: "What didn't I like? The food, it was poor. The entertainment system needs repair. Small seats. Seats to close together, front to back, especially on an eleven hour flight. The crew trying to sell the captive audience extra food and drinks."

Cons: "Entertainment system old and slow"
Cons: "There wasn't any notification prior to booking process, with regards the need to get visa from the airport where I should be transiting for 2 hours only. After I booked and paid for nonrefundable, unchangeable, uncancellable ticket, I got an email asking me to get a visa in order to be able to transit for only two hours in Toronto airport. The visa takes at least 2 weeks, and my travel date was only few days ahead!. The rough lady in air Canada, plus the bad service and advise by the travel agent who advised not to take any action as it is only 2 hrs transiting and I won't be in trouble, all of that makes me not to recommend anyone to use your weird website. I had to stay 20hrs in the airport to book for another flight."

Pros: "I did not use the entertainment. The crew was refreshingly professonial, helpful, and cheerful [in a British way]."

Cons: "After taking off in San Francisco flight got re-routed to Minneapolis because of a sick passenger on board. Caused me to miss my connection in London and the subsequent flight I was put on because of the delay. Spent 10 hours overnihht at Heathrow in London because British Airways wasn't giving out hotel vouchers just £15 in meal vouchers. Disappointing."
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Checking in online 24 hours prior to departure I received up-dates thrice regarding the delay of the flight which was very convenient. I had also learned about the protections that I enjoy as a passenger checking in online. The flight caught up in terms of timing as I had to catch a connecting flight to the continent from London. I was very pleased, also with the courteous flight attendents, the food, the entertainment selection and sufficient leg room in economy class. Overall a lovely experience, indeed!"

Pros: "The entertainment selection and the friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats on the first flight were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room, the aisles were incredibly narrow, and the seats were so close together that my neighbor and I bumped arms throughout the flight, and neither of us are large people. That was our first flight on BA and unfortunately it will probably be our last."
Cons: "Seat too small. No free wifi in the XXI century? !!!"
Pros: "Food was good."

Cons: "Could not do online checkin due to some sort of problem with their booking system, and as a result couldn't choose our seats on the long haul flight."

Pros: "Everything no complaints"
Cons: "No copmplaints"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, very good crew."
Cons: "On time and good staff"
Pros: "I upgraded my seat fr more legroom"
Cons: "On the trip over, British Air had no record of my seat upgrades. They tried to accomodate, but it was not the same. They did process a payment for about $110 for upgrades both way, however, and I have written to get a refund. In general, British Air can be not responsive or helpful in the admin department and i will avoid them from hereon."
Pros: "Pleasant, efficient and knowledgable staff."
Cons: "BA staff at SFO lounge have declared UDI and do not allow Gold Card holders into 1st class lounge"
Pros: "The seates were nice and plush. The journey wasn't bumpy at all, and the pilot was funny. He made a fun comment saying 'he had someplace to be in New York so he will get us there as quickly as possible.' :P The crew was friendly and sweet."
Cons: "There was no food ! I assumed a flight from the west coast to the east coast would atleast provide with some food ! But nada. It bugged me more because I had to catch a another flight from new York to London. Other than that, guess it was pretty okay."
Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service"
Cons: "Spent $2000 on a flight SFO to London / Toulouse, expected a better seat and experience. Plane was old, seats uncomfortable, food horrible. No snacks available in between two horrible meals."
Pros: "The overall experience was very good from the angle of clean toilets, food and good leg space even in economy class."
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "No USB chargers or in seat power supply. Couldn't charge phone. Tiny screen with limited entertainment. Archaic system. No recognition of one world Sappire status. Bad food options, chicken or veg only. Very "grey" Englush Breakfast. Dinner food option not as announced. The entire experience was poor. Grumpy crew who seemed flustered and were not paying attention to service."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The new A380 seats are absolutely awful."
Cons: "The try tables are small and already falling apart. The seats fell like they're already 20 years old, yet it's a new aircraft."
Pros: "The sound levels were way low resulting in much lower stress on this aircraft. The beast flew extremely well and was amazingly huge. The BA food was the best I had ever had on an airplane, (in economy) and generous, fresh and varied. The flight crew was very professional and the landings and take-offs were for my wife who is very sensitive to such events, very nice. Fantastic assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "There was not enough water available, and I made the mistake of not buying in the terminal. There is no public area to move around in, which I kind of thought there would be for such a huge airplane. The seats and room were even less than other airplanes (in "World Traveler"--economy) which is a drag because I am a bit shy of 6'. The seat in front of me was about 10" from my face during the flight with mine reclined all the way (and the person in front of me) Pretty much impossible to sleep--ugh."
Pros: "On time, no crashes"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable, hardly any room to breath"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped (as elsewhere) and I wish there were truly vegetarian options among the main options without having to order special meals. Otherwise good experience."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "That we made it safe"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all and crews not enjoyable. They barely smile. They were all about business We had an hour delay and I almost miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "While a bit pricey, the ability to upgrade when checking in allowed us a second chance at better comfort for the 10-hour flight. The plane was brand new and everything worked. The check-in crew, the flight crew, all were fantastic. The food was top notch and served in nice dishes."
Cons: "The screaming 8-year old in the Club World Cabin The lost Club World status when trying to check in to the lounge at LRH"
Pros: "The seat itself is adequate, but falling behind the times. The service of the FAs makes up for it though"
Pros: "british accents. that's about it."
Cons: "The plane was very old therefore did not have amenities newer planes have. no phone charging. bathrooms had old faucets that you have to keep pressing to wash hands therefore making it very awkward process. also horrible that you can't pick your seat more than 24 hours in advance without paying extra. other airlines just let you do it."
Cons: "After keeping us on the plane for several hours, we were informed of a mechanical issue and they canceled the flight altogether. We were then instructed to deplane where the BA crew and staff then gave us incorrect information as to where our baggage was, how we were to rebook, etch. Basically they had ZERO response to the issue and were completely unhelpful . The 200+ passengers were left to figure it out on our own. They next day the rescheduled flight was also delayed several hours with no real explanation which caused us to miss our further connection, which cost us 2 days of our vacation. I requested some sort of upgrade for the trouble on the return flight and they refused.They did however apologize profusely..they were REALLY good at that part."
Pros: "It was American Plane and seat comfort and space WAS GREAT."
Pros: "Departure was on time and the crew members were exceptional."
Cons: "There was nothing about this trip not to like."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get to take the flight because I had a family emergency and changing the flight would have cost more than the flight itself, so I lost the flight, and my lifelong dream of going to Ireland was out the window."
Cons: "After everyone was boarded in the plane, the pilot announced that a fuel pump was broken and that they would try to fix it. 2 and half hours later, the pilot announced they couldn't fix it and that a new one would have to come from London to San Francisco to replace it (as if the only place to get decent plane parts was London)!!!! The plane was rescheduled to fly the next day at 18.00. It didn't actually leave until after midnight, causing us to miss our connecting flights not just once, but again the next day. Communication by British Airways about what was going on and when we could expect to fly was awful throughout, and their customer service was worse than abysmal. I will avoid flying BA in the future."
Cons: "Too short time for connecting flight resulted in missing my connection. BA decided to try a new software system on a high travel date which resulted in an hour delay. Many passengers missed their connecting flights."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Multiple delays for my flight. First the departure was delayed which I know can happen. Then we boarded and sat for over an hour before take off. Captain made up a story about the plane needed gas and said we would take off in 15 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we finally took off."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff and easy boarding process, good food and on time departure"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Much more but with this price you can not expect much!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better."

Cons: "Better flight attendants who know how to help. Never TAP again!!"
Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Pros: "The food and crew"
Cons: "Too late with delay"
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "On my ticket I selected the lacto-ovo vegetarian meal and I never received it. I told the flight attendant and he said “we don’t have any more, chicken or fish”. I said “I am a vegetarian” and he gave me a tiny salad, a bread roll, and a chocolate mousse. I was very hungry as I hadn’t eaten in 9 hrs"
Cons: "Checked bag fee was expensive at $120 per bag. For the two of us bags cost $240. The plane boarded late this departed and arrived late. Otherwise a very good flight. Very comfortable, all Amenities worked, the plane was clean and the staff accommodating."
Cons: "I fee cheated because it is the first time that I have. to pay for luggage. In their website it states that the basic fare allows in check-in bag. They said to me that there are different categories of basic fare, which is not disclosed in their website. Additionally any seat change cost"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good. The hot meal was very good."
Cons: "We would have appreciated water being served between the meals; it was a very long time with nothing.The cold meal was just ok. We paid extra for our seats and were very disappointed at being stuck in the middle where it is difficult to move or get up. It would have been nice to be able to actually"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Passenger was refused at check in because, according to the counter clerk, the ticket was not purchased in the country of residency but online in US. As a result, i lost the money, the passenger did not fly, and no refund was issued. this is the first time i ever heard of such BS. Not happy."
Pros: "Cancelled flight. Charged for bags even though we prepaid for them."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "When TAP couldn’t get me to Lisbon in time to make my connection they added a flight to Madrid where I waited until 16:00 to fly to Seville. I talked to several TAP representatives and none were helpful or apologetic and they offered me nothing for the problems they caused. I missed my only day in Seville due to this. This trip turned out to be a disaster."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the food was better than I expected."
Cons: "Bags restrictions without us knowing. Delayed flight but we still manage to get to our destination on time. The same did not happen before where I had to wait until 2am for my tap flight that was supposed to leave at 11:30pm. I have been flighting TAP for many years now and it used to be one of my favorite airlines. No longer is the case. Over the years there has been a decline on service."
Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Pros: "great seats, great egg tarts and easy check in"
Pros: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"
Pros: "We got our luggage at destination"
Cons: "Luggage fees were excessively higher. Paid €40 per checked in bag one way! This was because our tickets were “on sale” and didn’t include any checked in baggage."
Pros: "Big plane. Breakfast snack was a nice surprise, didn’t expect that on an intra-European flight"
Cons: "Boarding started a bit late, didn’t like the bussing on the airport. Entertainment minimal (then again, it was an intra-European flight ...)"
Pros: "the crew was amazing and very polite"
Cons: "the screens weren’t touchscreen and the headphones had to be held in a certain position to work. they also charged us the monthly salary of a mcdonald’s employee for bags..."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."

Cons: "Food on plane ok wish had more choices"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."

Cons: "Overall it was a good flight - no complaints!"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Slow baggage claim"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, losted the baggage and couldn't help to resolve the problem. They also lied about the flight they wanted to replace to solve the problem which even didn't exist in their company. So, I will never ever take the flight from this compound again."
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Cons: "I found it very frustrating that we were told at the ticket counter the boarding would begin at 11:15am for a 12:45pm flight time. I arrived at the airport over two hrs in advance and then had to run a significant distance through the airport and sweat and be unnecessarily anxious waiting on the customs line only to arrive at the gate at 11:20am, to have my bags checked for a second time and then be unable to get any food or coffee before a flight that did not begin boarding for another 40 minutes. I did and still do not see the need for that additional luggage/security check and then being held at the gate for almost an extra hour for seemingly no reason at all."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked by over 20 people and even though we got the airport 2 hrs early to check in we were bumped from the flight. Next flight available was not for over 8 hrs later that day. Rude and not helpful employees. No gate announcement when flight was then delayed. Most American size carry one do not fit in overbooked head and was forced to gate check."
Pros: "Aircraft seem well maintained and crews are very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess this time. The lady directing the boarding did not make clear where each group should stand. So The lady had to send most of us back which upset many. TAP should copy Southwest Airlines except self checkin kiosk are horrid no matter which airline uses it."
Pros: "Wine was nice and metal container of so-called business class utilities (socks, tooth brush, etc.)"
Cons: "Seats are coach seats! No entertainment. No AC power sources. Shame!"
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "Incredible experience!!! Best airline ever I have flown on!!"
Cons: "Only complaint was group lines should have been established before boarding began. Everyone was in a large group before they told us where to line up and then it was too late But once we were on the plane it was an amazing flight experience!!! The comfort was unparalleled to other airlines I have flown on. Thank you so much!!!"
Pros: "Wow!!!! I had never heard of this airline before booking our trip but goodness this was a blessing. They were so polite in the flight. They always came past to check to see if a passenger needed anything. Free bags is amazing then free pillows blankets and headphones I really hope I get to fly with them on my next flight abroad"
Pros: "great staff and great plan. Comfortable and roomier than most"
Cons: "ran very late"
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable for economy class"

Pros: "the price of the flight."
Cons: "have to pay for entertainment, no good food selections, seats don't recline much,"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."
Pros: "Good coverage help at ticket kiosks. Flight crew and attendants were attentive during flight in the area of the plane I observed. Good use of lemon sorbet to finish off dinner."
Cons: "An hour Delay in getting plane ready for boarding this was not due to any weather issue that could be observed. Pasta did not look appetizing and appeared too large of pasta and too much cheese to break into mouthfuls with a fork easily.There was a small amount of lettuce without a dressing and some cooked quinoa like grain next it I did not understand what the cooks were trying to do with. Seat is uncomfortable for tall passengers such as myself at 6'5". Important to bring neck support. I had brought one but it was not stiff enough to offer good support. It also would have been a nice touch for writing implements of one sort or another to have been passed out to complete the board card that needed to be filled when entering U.K."
Pros: "Personal tv was on this flight. Everything on time and great service"
Pros: "Crew was nice. The plane had good amentites and was clean ."
Pros: "Like the free snacks while we waited 2 hours to board."
Cons: "Did not like waiting 2 hours to board."
Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"
Cons: "We could not check in on line and there was no Austrian Air agent at SFO (San Francisco). Ultimately needed to check in at United but their agents were uncertain about our tickets. Typical United service - cranky flight attendants, poor food - but we arrived on time and in one piece."

Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."

Cons: "I was dreamy disappointed when I purchase the ticket I thought I was going on luthhansa Airlines instead, i was on United Airlines which had a old 747 back in the 1990's it was dirty and uncomfortable. When I made the booking on kayka there was no indication that United Airlines was going to be substitute Airline"

Cons: "One of the fight attendants answered no to moving to an empty seat saying it was an Economy Plus seat but in less than 3 minutes another passenger freely occupied that seat. Really?"

Cons: "Pilot inability/unwillinngess to explain reason for 1 hour 45 minute delay departing SFO. Mechanical problem, disclosed just 30-45 minutes after take-off necessiated unplanned landing in Chicago, where we waited another 2 hours before finally taking off to Paris."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than two hours. Entertainment was working intermittently."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."

Cons: "The United flight so far was a terrible experience for me. the food is so salty and so little!! I am a person who love to eat so much, but the food (noodle) was very bad, I didn't finish it.
