Airline reviews

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded"

Cons: "Small plan"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."

Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"

Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"

Pros: "I liked the boarding process."
Cons: "Bigger seats are more helpful."

Cons: "Delay over one hour."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Cons: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."

Pros: "comfortable seats, quick flight"
Cons: "in-seat entertainment and a full salami sandwich instead of half for snack"

Pros: "It was fairly comfortable & the staff was pleasant. The initial leg from BCN to Frankfurt went very smoothly."
Cons: "The flight 2nd flight from Frankfurt to Boston was significantly delayed for a variety of issues, and ( though not really within Lufthansa’s control) the security at Frankfurt was easily the most disorganized & poorly run situation I’ve ever encountered. There was almost constant interruption for announcements at the outset, with information that wasn’t necessary & actually made waiting for an extra hr + more frustrating. I give the crew/staff credit for doing their jobs well enough that it still managed to be a decent flight in the end."

Pros: "crew attentive the plane is very clean"

Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Everything was fine!"

Pros: "The flt attendants were very good but not exceptional. The entertainment screen was the best I have experienced. Coach was as cramped as every other airline I have flown. Seats were not very comfortable. Food was delicious."
Cons: "Lufthansa, (and all other carriers) need to remove a couple rows of seats in economy class and give passengers the space they deserve. Seats on international flights need to be more comfortable also."

Pros: "Crew excellent...seats small and not too comfortable for business class."

Pros: "The help from the checking agent after we found out Lufthansa canceled my daughter and mine flys coming back home without any explanation and notification"

Pros: "They were smiling and very welcoming"

Cons: "Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Food was not what I’m used to on Lufthansa"

Pros: "the airplane was brand new. l really like it and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats were not super comfortable in economy class. There was enough leg-room but the seat itself was not."

Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"

Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Efficient, on time."
Cons: "Cost for wifi"

Cons: "Not sure about booking with flyus. Com- next time I will prefer not to use Kayak if flight is booked through flyus.com"

Pros: "From stevards to comfort, everything was just perfect!"
Cons: "My seat 26A screen was freezing and movies rebooting. So I moved to a different seat"

Cons: "We had reserved a gluten free meal for my wife. When I went to check in it was gone from our reservation. The crew attempted to put something together so she would have food to eat but the response from their customer support team on the phone was not great. I recommend verifying all meals twice before 48 hours out. On a 7+ hour flight this is not fun."

Pros: "Direct from SJC, not crowded"
Cons: "Guy in front of me was reclined whole time and very little room like that."

Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."

Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"

Pros: "Nice Biz Class with typical empty center seat. Pleasant FAs."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Bathrooms need freshners, many passenger, infants , kids use it. It smell not unclean ."

Pros: "Crew. Clean restrooms."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seating until 23 hours before the flight. A huge plane for first and business class. Economy left with uncomfortable seats, no legroom whatsoever and I am only 5’. Food was awful. Extra long walk in Frankfurt to baggage."

Cons: "Delay and food was bad"

Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding went smoothly. Seats not too comfy, knee room seems to be shrinking with every flight (transatlantic routes mostly)."
Cons: "I like wathcing European movies (German, French, etc.) when flying LH, but unfortunately they rarely have English subtitles."

Cons: "It was completely out of the airline's control but we were very delayed due to bed weather in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Lufthansan Agent in Nigeria was very rude, has no professional skills, lost some of my medications as a result of her behavior towards me, yelling and commanding me to remove items from my bags and my hand bag. This was a second incident with her. Our flight was delayed for three hours as a result of faulty plane."

Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"

Cons: "Food Seats"

Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "Nice plane, airy. Lufthansa crew are always nice."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in. I'd checked in and selected seats in advance. But flight was overbooked and I got a standby ticket with no seat while my 4 family members, including 3 on the same reservation, were seated. I had to stand in line as a standby, and then was assigned a seat that didn't recline at all -- not the best for an overnight flight, and having planned, checked in and gotten a seat, IOW done what I was supposed to, it wasn't a nice way to be treated."

Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."

Pros: "I liked how smooth the boarding was handled. The flight attendants where polite and helpful. A very comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Boarding fast and efficient, but would be better if the grouped."
Cons: "I am only 6 ft but knees hit the seat in front. Tray table hits my stomach even without the recline on front seat. Woman across aisle from me couldn't get out of her seat when the person in front reclined. This should just be illegal, period! Food was not very good. Entertainment options was limited."

Pros: "I used to travel on Lufthansa almost exclusively until I had a very disturbing incident in Munich with a flight attendant. I refused to fly Lufthansa for quite a few years after that. That being said, the crew were attentive to passengers and the meals were reasonable. The seats were more comfortable than on LOT and Austrian. There were quite a few decent choices among the media during the flight."
Cons: "During my flight, my cell phone turned on at some point and downloaded some emails using the airplane's data connection. I will be needlessly charged for this. Once I noted that I was logged on, I tried to see if I could do other stuff before quickly logging off. It seems like it was totally worthless."

Pros: "Comfortable for a short flight. On time."
Cons: "Had to go through security and passport control a second time made the 1 hour connection stressful"

Pros: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."

Pros: "Bump bump uncomfortable"
Cons: "The food is ok and the crew"

Cons: "Not enough space in between seats"

Pros: "Entertainment system helped time pass on 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, boarding was late."

Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."

Pros: "caring attendants"
Cons: "some food"

Pros: "Smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Leg room."

Pros: "The staff was not friendly at all. For international flight, especially long ones the seats should be able to go back further and not feel like a board, the seats were uncomfortable and small. The area between first class and the back of the plane had air issues, and I was sweating and so hot it woke me up, so on a 10 hour flight I got 1 hour of sleep. Ruined my first day of vacation."
Cons: "Everything was aweful except for the movie selections."

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."

Pros: "I appreciate the taxi, in Munich airport, to my next connection."
Cons: "I disliked the late departure."

Pros: "Comfortable seats 2-4-2 seat formation means less stress if you have a window seat Good food Good storage options"
Cons: "Crew seemed curt and unfriendly Very small pocket on the back of the seat in front of you Decent movie selection but could have been better"

Pros: "Servers in uniform."
Cons: "Lost luggage."

Cons: "foot rests in Saga class weren't very comfortable"

Pros: "Clean. Good service. Just way better than most domestic flights in recent memory."

Cons: "Took over an hour to check luggage in."

Pros: "Seating space was good, not cramped. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "No snack, even pretzels, with beverage service."

Cons: "I STRONGLY encourage you to move away from offering EVERY passenger a small bottle of cold water when boarding! Please think about just how many plastic bottles are being needlessly created and then thrown away EVERY DAY! The water is apparently from some very good spring in Iceland... but think about all the plastic bottles that are going to was up on your shores EVERY DAY! It's a very bad trade-off if you ask me. (Which you did via this questionnaire.) And on a loosely related point... At Reykjavik airport (which was a packed chaotic mess the day we passed through) I could only find ONE fountain (downstairs by the toilets) where passengers could refill drinking bottles. I went down three times to fill our bottle and every time there was a line of at least 10 folks. Clearly people want to use refillable bottles but it sure makes it hard when there is only one location to do it. Throw in at least a half dozen of them around the airport please."

Pros: "Enjoyed travel videos about Iceland that you could watch before arriving."

Cons: "Sitting in row 33, couldn't recline seat and to close to rest room."

Cons: "Would like more movie options"

Pros: "Super easy and the cost was amazing!"

Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."

Pros: "Low cost"

Pros: "Nothing, every single (of my 4) flights was late"
Cons: "Everything,"

Pros: "Pleasant service, new comfortable aircraft."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding, no service or attendance, unprofessional and unfriendly attitude. I arrived 3 hours before departure and had to stand in lines that were not clearly defined for 2 and a half hours. Everybody complained. Even the luggage band when I checked my bag was broken. Nobody came to assist the passengers"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Head rests are uncomfortable. The Reyjiacik airport is crazy how everything leaves around the same time, so its super crowded! Didn't pick up trash often enough."

Pros: "The airline people were kind."
Cons: "Not knowing about the smaller carry on standard size. I was expecting to see the same size but did not."

Pros: "flights were on time service was good"
Cons: "would rather not stop en route"

Cons: "They dont offer a meal for free."

Cons: "The baggage took over an hour to come out. It was 11:30pm and we needed to pick up our rental car and still drive to our apartment in Reykjavik. We arrived at the apartment at 2:30am and had to leave by 9:00am to go to the Blue Lagoon. Wishing the baggage had come out much faster."

Cons: "Lost luggage, emailed, but no response, four days later after multiple attempts the baggage company called to deliver bags to London address as we landed in Paris. There was no contact number and no email response Horrible service without a care. Ruined a European vacation"

Cons: "crying baby"

Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized and was complicated by a transport bus that didn't know when to leave. Airport was having baggage belt issues but plane preparation wasn't started until we finally got to the plane. This put the plane 1 hour behind schedule and caused an even further mess on the connecting flights."

Cons: "A meal wasn't provided, as it should've had been."

Cons: "Late. Crowded."

Cons: "Arrived late."

Cons: "Huge check-in wait even with arrrival 2+ hours before departure"

Pros: "The planes were fairly comfortable, the staff great, and individual tvs good."
Cons: "Almost two hours late leaving MSP.Luggage did not get to London until two days after we did."

Pros: "Boarding in Boston was efficient and orderly."

Pros: "Everything...smaller planes, fewer people, quick loading, unloading, small Reykjavik airport equals less of a layover. I will always try Icelandair on my quite frequent UK trips I even like safety video!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Connections in rekjavik were delayed both to and from Paris. The airport is not designed to handle the multiple dealys"

Cons: "Layover times are very short and other flights arriving and departing at same time delay the time flights actually leave."

Pros: "We got to the airport more than 3 hours early and couldn't check in until the counter opened and then ended up standing in a very long line."
Cons: "We like that security was at the gate and was very quick to get through."

Pros: "Plenty of legroom."

Pros: "Friendly staff, clean aircraft. Was very pleasantly surprised at how organized, clean, and neat things were. Will definitely be flying Icelandair again and will recommend to others. Also planning a trip to Iceland because it was just that great!"
Cons: "Terminal seating was limited but I believe they are renovating or under construction to address this issue. Was not that big of a deal to me or my boyfriend because we had been sitting for hours anyway. We just made ourselves comfortable on the floor."

Pros: "Very easy and phenomenal time."

Pros: "The people that work for Iceland Air were very friendly and helpful. Our trip to Reykjavik and onto Paris was great. We would fly with Iceland Air again."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "My girlfriend’s Tv stopped to work in the beginning of the flight."

Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"

Cons: "Unreasonable delay, not very friendly crew."

Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"

Pros: "If there is good weather, everything will run smooth and on time."
Cons: "Be aware of the snow... My flight from YUL (Montreal) to FLL was delayed 4 hours!! The inbound flight was diverted to Toronto just because of ONE inch of snow in Montreal Airport."

Pros: "the crew was nice and helpul with my worry about loosing the flight to tel aviv because the flight to toronto was late due to snow in toronto."
Cons: "while on my way to the airport i got a message that my flight was cancelled. luckily i had a friend who took care of putting me on another flight to toronto. weather created changes but just sending a message your flight is cancelled is not the right way to deal with things. when finally arriving to toronot i had to rush to my flight to tel aviv, it was insane, just to realize that also this flight was postponed due to the weather. air canada should be more involved in helping travelers to deal with their connections."

Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."

Cons: "No video screens for entertainment. If you want to use in flight entertainment, you need to download the Air Canada app prior to boarding."

Pros: "Direct flight - on time departure , arrived early"
Cons: "Grumpy crew, uncomfortable seating - tight & seating comfort poor, attendants came around once for drink & food - didn't return until end of flight"

Cons: "sitting in the middle seat unless you pay extra"

Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"

Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."

Pros: "Finally getting off the plane."

Pros: "Not much...crew very nice"
Cons: "On the flight coming to Toronto the staff randomly choose ppl to check bags at gate...no consistency which is very frustrating Flight was delayed. On the flight got returning I arrived at airport at 730 for my 9 PM flight ....they knew it would be delayed earlier in the day but never posted it so ppl could adjust their schedules. My last 4 flights with AC have been disappointing"

Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."

Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."

Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."

Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("

Cons: "There were several delays before boarding. The communication was poor, the announcements inaudible and the terminal chaotic. The flight had a lot of young children on it. There was an incredible amount of crying and screaming in the last half hour of the flight."

Pros: "Seatroom"
Cons: "The 6 1/2 hour flight from Montréal CANADA to San Francisco, CA USA, is considered a "shared border flight," which means 1) you pay $25 for your first checked bag, $35 for the next, and $100 for subsequent bags. The food is horrible and the type you'd expect on a puddle jumper from NY to Boston. Clearly Air Canada executives are aware that Canada and the US are separate countries. This is just an attempt to gouge the consumer. Unfortunately Air Canada is the only Airline I can fly out of Montreal so I'm stuck with them. : ("

Pros: "I liked the fact that my online check in was super easy"
Cons: "More friendly crew"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and direct flight"
Cons: "Problem with heating and no blankets"

Cons: "Will never fly air canada again. Missed connection and the staff does not care to accommodate for a flight to my are on another airline."

Pros: "Flew through custom and was comfortable on the flight. Flight attendants were nice and attentive and made sure i had what i needed. I was happy with everything overall and intend on flying again soon!!!!"

Pros: "Good job to the Logan Airport ground crews & FA, flight# AC7677 FA from YYZ to Bos, flight#AC 362 did a good job aswell. Overall, im satistied."
Cons: "I don't like the boarding system from Bos to YYZ & vice versa. Why not start from the rear part (zone 5) instead of starting from zone1. just saying."

Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."

Cons: "Small child violently kicked me seat the entire flight. I asked the parent (politely) to ask his son to stop but he didnt think he should have to. (They also thought it was fine for their toddler daugther to crawl into another sleeping passengers lap during flight. The crew was no help. I get that kids are kids but this was excessive. A crying baby would have been a welcone change. I think the crew should have stepped in."

Pros: "The flight was long, but fine. Meals were very good."
Cons: "I had to buy a one-way ticket. It was $900. + It would have been great to be upgraded for that price!"

Pros: "The flight was great, friendly staff, great food, new plane, lots of options on the new AC entertainment system. The new Star Alliance terminal (T2) at Heathrow is also so fast and efficient! No complaints at all!!!"

Pros: "Seats had a decent amount of room."
Cons: "Aircanada'swe boarding system is again and everyone in later zones just blocks everyone else. Due to issues mentioned on the flight above my husband didn't get his luggage. We are still waiting."

Pros: "Excellent crew service."
Cons: "inadequate leg room in economy"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The food and the seats were cramp"

Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa."

Cons: "*jewellery stolen from check bag *flight was late *crew were rude *no flight entertainment *lost baggage Worst flying experience"

Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."

Pros: "Loved the premium economy seat! Would definitely fly again with Air Canada. The first meal was very good. The snack wasn't too exciting. Skipped last meal."
Cons: "Complimentary earphones! They hurt and the sound quality was horrible. I couldn't hear the words when I tried to watch a movie. I ended up having to borrow my kid's kiddie headphones. I would tell anyone flying w AC to bring their own ear/headphones!"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."

Pros: "Great food and great service. Not much leg room in the 'free' seats but the flight crew allowed us to move to an empty row so we had lots of room. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"

Pros: "The bilingual announcements. The movie selections."
Cons: "Most of the staff were rude and made me feel like an inconvenience any time I needed something. Due to delays leaving Heathrow and arriving in Ontario, my 2 1/2 hour layover was reduced to 30 minutes. And because I was transfering to a flight to the US, I had to sprint through 6 security checkpoints. I made it to my flight, but my bag did not. My bag was not delivered to me until 1 am the following day."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."

Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."

Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"

Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."

Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Dear United crew, there are definitely a bunch of great people amongst you. Can you please tell your fellow colleagues to start treating passengers as customers ... no need to leave your good spirits at home, just bring it on the plane ... starting with a smile! And yes, in seat power was not working. PS I wonder who decided on the power outlet placement ... 1.5M flying miles on United."

Cons: "United entertainment app doesn't work on all devices."

Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."

Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"

Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"

Cons: "This is the fourth time that I've been bumped off of a flight because United overbooked. I'm in the military and each time I was trying to get home to family or fly family to me. I will never fly with United again."

Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"

Pros: "Well organized."

Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."

Pros: "Brought water out several times"
Cons: "Had very limited food availability No entertainment through app unless purchasing internet"

Pros: "Quiet and calm smooth flight"
Cons: "It was cold in cabin at first."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Half the flight booked, they let us switch to better seats!"

Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"

Pros: "the large Wide body plan"

Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."

Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."

Pros: "Not much. I'll fly Spirit when available unless you update personal item measurements."
Cons: "Personal item smaller thanSpirit. Please update to reflect Spirits new size allowance. Despite careful packing I was disappointed that I had to pay $50 for bag check. Two weeks ago I flew on Spirit with the same bag and had no problem with their size allowances which are just a bit more generous than United. I had purchased the bag precisely for this type of flight. An extra 1/2 inch would have saved me the $50."

Pros: "It was good overall"

Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."

Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "Got to visit Chicago for the first time this weekend and has an amazing time! The flight was smooth and the price was unbeatable! Can't wait to go again!"
Cons: "Cheap price and late night flights! I also liked the crew service. They were great"

Pros: "Really nice and accommodating"

Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."

Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Nickel and diming on everything. Bring back free pillows/blankets at the very least."
