Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."

Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."
Cons: "nothing!!"

Cons: "I was pleased with all."

Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Courteous crew, delicious food and comfortable seats for economy. I was looking forward to the return flight!"

Cons: "late again and hot in the cabin. sat on the runway for a while again"

Pros: "I love this airline! The flight attendants are so polite and cute and the whole ride was a great experience."

Cons: "The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions. Not sure why but it was unnecessary to have too many, can't rest or sleep nor continue with viewing the entertainment provided. It seemed like a tired crew this time. The food was not good."

Pros: "Great food on ANA flight from Malaysia to Tokyo."

Pros: "Best leg space, new air crafts, kids gifts"
Cons: "Food choices are very average. Nothing for vegeterians if you do not order in advance. English language accouncements were not clear at all - not great for an international flight"

Pros: "The big screen Tvs"

Cons: "Well, I have the fear of buying ANA air tickets because the previous one, it was United instead. Horrible horrible horrible"

Pros: "All the Japanese food are delicious! The crew are polite and nice"
Cons: "I suppose, not enough variety of American movie. In my opinion"

Pros: "Food legroom service friendliness"
Cons: "Could not view flight info on map"

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food was a bit salty. Bread was so cold."

Pros: "ANA has one of the best friendly and courteous service. I was kept well fed through my flight and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "I wish the English announcements were not in so heavily thick accent and more understandable. Transfer from the plane to the airport is quite tedious when the plane is parked away from the airport. I wish they would make transferring carry-on more disabled friendly."

Cons: "They refused to board because the united dis not allocate the flight date and ANA check in counter did not help to coordinate."

Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."

Cons: "kayak should let you know when buying the ticket that the first portion of the flight codeshare with united express doesn't cover a second bag I called ANA they said i could bring two so I did but I was charged 100 dollars for it even though it was an international flight with ANA also united express shattered the outside of one of my checked bags so I paid 100 dollars to get a 50 dollar suitcase BROKEN UNITED won't respond to my inquiries. I am very disappointed."

Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."

Pros: "Delta flight are always comfortable."
Cons: "Not having a 3 hour delay."

Cons: "We had problem with the airplane brake but the crew made the transition to the other plane so smooth. Amazing job to this delta crew."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Only selection of movies but that’s all!"
Cons: "Flight delay could have been explained better, boarded the plane and sat in for about 2:30 min, crew could have been more proactive but NO! Food especially thinking this dinner time in business class fare very small portions! Wi-Fi paid for full flight but it was turned off in the mid of the air!"

Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."

Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"

Pros: "Small plane without bells and whistles and no middle seats."
Cons: "The internet would not work. I couldn’t use any of the inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Boarding could be better."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Overall: pretty good."

Pros: "Food were bad. Out of air condition"

Pros: "I love that they have food on long flights and I get an hour of free WiFi because I have T-mobile."
Cons: "Small seats but I’m tall so I have to live with it."

Cons: "delayed flight"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Pros: "The bag service"
Cons: "The flight delays"

Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."

Pros: "The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight."

Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"
Cons: "We were moved to the Exit row, but the woman at the ticket desk said that the seats reclined...BUT they did not!! So, that was a bummer!"

Pros: "Flight was very quick. Boarding was very fast for such a small plane."
Cons: "Turbulence. Tiny carry-on area, tiny bathroom. Makes sense for such a small plane though."

Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."

Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."

Pros: "Seats. Service. Timing"

Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."

Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. No food or entertainment so I couldn't rate those. N/A should be a choice"

Pros: "Movie selection and cable channels"
Cons: "My connection was abruptly changed, it took a long time to straighten out, but they eventually did."

Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."

Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"

Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."

Pros: "Crew was the best!"
Cons: "I really dislike the snack boxes. Snacks need to be more like a small sandwich or grapes, cheese and nuts. Not all that packaged stuff."

Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"

Pros: "flight was on time, food was good"
Cons: "entertainment was not working, not enough legroom"

Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"

Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"

Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Wi-go didn't really work- crew was unpleasant. We upgraded to first class we were never offered a drink. One of the flight attendants keep using the restrokm"

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"

Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."

Cons: "I purchased my tickets about 5 weeks before my trip and got to the airport 2 hrs prior. I recieved no seat assignment, just a boarding pass that said request seat. So I requested a seat. Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."

Pros: "Free rebooking"

Cons: "No entertainment - just a long boring flight. Should have some sort of entertainment for the longer flights."

Pros: "We were delayed a bit out of Shanghai but still arrived in Los Angeles on-time (very slightly early) which was nice. well done."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, with staff members holding signs creating arbitrary waiting areas for each of the boarding zones. If this is the boarding process, maybe something more structured can be implemented, otherwise people just end up everywhere. The seat back entertainment on this 777-200 suffered from the most capricious touch-screens ever. I would frequently tap a control on the screen only to have a control at the far corner of the screen be "pressed" instead. Annoying."

Pros: "Organized and smooth"

Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."

Pros: "Loved this flight, crew was amazing!"

Pros: "The crew was the best"

Pros: "I really like the crew on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Our pre paid seats were lost in the "system" even though I had the receipt they couldn't do anything. and we were seated in a back row with offset tvs, the movie selection is lame and dated"

Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"

Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"

Pros: "The food selection and quantity were wonderful! The crew and movie selection were great!"
Cons: "My seat storage pocket was broken and I was unable to store items in it."

Cons: "Small plane, a price for everything."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Seats way too small and tight. Flight delayed over and over."

Pros: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."

Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"

Pros: "Great entertaining system"

Pros: "Wasn’t Lufthansa, was Singapore Airline from Ny to Frankfurt.Was excellent definitely."

Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."

Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."

Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."

Pros: "People. Food."

Pros: "I was upgraded to a better seat and the flight was comfortable"

Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."

Pros: "Crew helped us with connections"
Cons: "Choice of seat came with a cost. Very uncomfortable seating. Not enough room."

Pros: "Made tight connection. Slept entire trip"

Pros: "2 hours delayed in Munich"

Pros: "The plane is very nice. One of the best plane configurations. Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"

Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."

Pros: "The snack was really good (a salami sandwich and a glass of wine)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude cabin crew, dirty plane, have to pay extra, they will accept USD but give you change in euros. Extra luggage fees and ridiculous weight limitations"

Cons: "We were detained at the airport after boarding and then deboarding without information. The entire flight was locked in a room and not allowed to leave with very little explanation as to why. After 5 hours they let us board another plane. There was water and candy supplied as food. It was a joke for anyone with kids or the elderly. Nevermind anyone with health concerns. BAD way to manage a crisis in my opinion. We were treated like cattle. And these were NOT cheap tickets."

Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."

Pros: "I liked the process this time because I didnt miss the flight (unlike last time when lufthansa workers denied us to go to the front of the line at passport checkpoint) IN PRAGUE CHECK IN PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL!"
Cons: "Nice crew"

Pros: "On time departures/ arrivals.. great friendly and professional cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The 747-8 is a nice new plane. The skinny Economy class seats are surprisingly comfortable. The entertainment system is good; I liked getting the feed from the forward-facing camera."
Cons: "Since last I flew with them, Lufthansa has added annoying charges like so many other airlines (but not usually full-service international airlines). Advance seat reservation was $30 per leg and seat. (I paid only for the overnight eastbound flight; on the return I found enough seats available by online check-in just after it opened.) One overweight bag was $100. Considering these charges, Singapore Airlines is the better choice for FRA-JFK. Minor quibbles with the entertainment system: * Front-facing camera points very low. Would be nice to see other planes during taxi (not just their wheels). * New "live map" during flight added useless gimmicks (view of earth from space), removed data (altitude, speed, outside temperature)."

Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "I felt like I was traveling in first class! The crew treated me VERY well it was like night and day from the trip I made TO Italy on Air Canada who I will never travel with again. I will look for future travels with this airline for certain thank you so much!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing! You really were that good and my flight was a long one from Frankfurt to Seattle!"

Pros: "Shortness of flight from Genoa to Munich"
Cons: "Layover following"

Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Courteous and professional."

Pros: "Excellent and attentive crew, very good food/beverages. Lufthansa clearly stands out in international air travel."

Pros: "Crews on all flights were very good."
Cons: "This is an overall review of all flights we took this time. Food served in Economy on the international flight FROM US was terrible, and just a little better on all other flights that we took this time. But i noticed that food served on international destinations FROM US on any airline is terrible in general. Space between the seats is limited, very uncomfortable even for a petite woman. Child meals are too sweet, my kids ended up eating my salads, and part of my meal, because they didn't like their food. On the flight from US, kid's meal had 3 chocolate bars on top of other sweet things, which is too much. Give kids fruit bowl instead. I will not order child meal again."

Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."

Pros: "Friendly crew, overall international flight experience was comfortable. Thank you."

Pros: "The gate to board was right there. No bus shuttle to annoy me."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"

Pros: "On time. Great flight attendants and food"
Cons: "Not much space in the seat. The short flight had more legroom"

Pros: "With a long flight, just not enough seat or leg room for coach."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Cons: "Can they turn the heat up. So cold!"

Pros: "Fast on ant off"
Cons: "Not enough hip or leg room which is somewhat usual, but recent flights with United are much better"

Pros: "The seating under normal circumstances would be reasonably good, even for economy.. Because a larger-than-usual plane was needed in DC, a 747-800 was dispatched, and there was a lot of empty space, so many of us could spread out and sleep well. Even allowing for the very light passenger load, the crew was excellent in every way."
Cons: "No criticisms at all."

Pros: "Seats had extra legroom which was very nice."
Cons: "Screens were on by default and hard to figure out how to turn off. Ads are very annoying."

Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "That AA does not follow my preferences. I was assigned a middle seat even though my preference is an aisle seat."

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."

Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."

Pros: "Boarding lasted over an hour"
Cons: "I regret flying with American. They have consistent problems with every flight from seating to delayed flights"

Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."

Pros: "Great flight attendants"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"

Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."

Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."

Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."

Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."

Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."

Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was awesome."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Missed this connection"

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"

Pros: "just Ok for everything."

Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."

Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."

Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"

Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"

Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Needed to return to gate to refuel after aborted takeoff attempt. Thi"

Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"

Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"

Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"

Cons: "Provide food would be better"

Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."

Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."

Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."

Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"

Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"

Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."

Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."

Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."

Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."

Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"

Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."

Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."

Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight attendants were proficient and courteous."
Cons: "The seats are horrible and gave me backache. Hardly any cushion that could provide any form of comfort to an 11 hour flight and the recline was nonexistence"

Pros: "Had the whole of 3 seats to myself. Was a fast and pleasant and direct flight. Flight attendants gave me the option to take the row. Nice of her."
Cons: "Food selection and tastiness ... room for improvement."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment that’s all"
Cons: "Better crew and food"

Cons: "Delayed flight, seat didn’t recline"

Pros: "In flight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Departure was 45-60 minutes late because the plane arrived late. We sat on the runway for ~ 20 mins after landing in Chicago because there was no available jetway. Passport “spot check (?!) at jetway for all deplaning passengers created a slow crush once we left the plane."

Pros: "the crew was amazing and pleasant."
Cons: "everything went well and what i was expecting."

Cons: "Three hour delay"

Cons: "Quick and easy. Great crew."

Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."

Pros: "- Food was good, (3 cup chicken) - Ontime departure - Early arrival - Friendly attentive staff"

Pros: "Everything was in schedule. Bonus was those smaller extra foam pillows in Polaris."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Made great time despite being grounded for over 1.5 hours due to PVG ground control. Only arrived 10 mins late."
Cons: "Got bit six times by a rogue mosquito that made it onboard during boarding."

Cons: "Single-handedly some of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. I’m not sure if there’s any cushion but my rear end was killing me after 2 1/2 hours."

Pros: "Entertainment, and leg space."
Cons: "Full plane, long wait to use lavatory. Crew was good, but should have upped their game under the circumstances, especially with regards to keeping the lavatory clean. The noodles for breakfast turned out to be porridge, and went straight to the waste basket."

Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 hours & little done to compensate travelers. No in-seat entertainment on a 2.5+ hour flight. I expect this from a budget airline, not United."

Pros: "On time and flight crew were very courteous and professional."

Cons: "Small old plane without any entertainment."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Getting in so late the rental car offices were closed"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and on schedule,"
Cons: "The cost of a one way ticket was more than a return flight The entertainment system did not work, no movies were accessible on the entire plane for the 12 hour flight. Meals were OK but nothing fantastic to write home about Seat were crowded for eccomomy class, I flew on Emirates on my way to Zurich, for 60% of this flight cost, and would give them a solid 9 or 10 rating our of 10. This was an old plane, 747 Jumbo, Looked tired and was loud inside."

Cons: "The yogurt that was served in business class was out of date by 10 days"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and service not bad. Flight on time."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. One snarky light attendant. Little leg room. Terrible selection of films for all passengers. Have to get United app on ground--need this to be communicated better, on website, before boarding, and onboard."

Cons: "United is no longer customer friendly. Personnel on ground are like robots. They no longer recognize loyal customers as the core. Stewardess and stewards are not courteous. The steward was chewing while serving food. No more what high standards are about. Just to get through with the job. Sad."

Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."

Pros: "I MISSED IT BECAUSE UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT"
Cons: "UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO SO I HAVE NO IDEA."

Pros: "The purser was amazing. He set a high bar for personal service and caring."
Cons: "Lots of problems with seats around us (and ours) in business class. For a new airplane (787) that was surprising!"

Pros: "good entertainment through the united app"

Cons: "too much technical problems too long of delays,horrible"

Pros: "Shanghai"
Cons: "Los Angeles"

Pros: "The pilot did a good job. However the cabin crew needs more training. Very rude and unattentive"
Cons: "Rude and incompetent staff on this flight. Plus the overweight/hot/sweaty/snorlax gentleman squeezing me into my window seat for 12hrs was pleasant."

Pros: "Being up in the sky so cool."
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Don't lie to customers and tell us there is a 10 minutes delay, when we can all see that the plane we're supposed to leave on hasn't even arrived yet. Give us honest delay times so that we can make choices about using the bathroom, getting a bite to eat or stretching our legs."

Pros: "They were kind enough to hold the flight as it was the only one today to Tucson!!"

Pros: "My son was under 18 and was flying alone. He missed flight because boarding was complete and he was 5 min late. His next flight was delayed and he didn't get back to Tucson untill 9 p.m. I, parent did not get to escort child to the gate because my pass did not have fast pass stamp. Very poor experience and airport staff was not helpful."

Pros: "The crew were nice and even if they were stressed didn't show it one bit."
Cons: "With a flight based out of Denver, I'd have expected you to be a LITTLE more prepared for the inclement weather, and not be delayed over 12 hours with thousands of other people."

Pros: "Crew service,food was excellent, entertain was ok except the audio no music selection to cannot choose individual music cannot forward or playback songs but overall it was an excellent flight especially Shanghai to Sfo trip"

Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The variety of movies and music to listen to. Very comfortable"
Cons: "The quality of food could be better. I always order a Hindu meal not because that's my background but because it has more flavor than a standard meal"

Pros: "The plane was big and they made sure to keep you hydrated."
Cons: "Most of the airline staff were unbelievably rude. They wouldn't let me 91 year old grandfather get up to stretch at ask during the flight. They also told me to stay out of the way and sit down during a medical emergency when I got up because they needed a doctor."

Pros: "Fight was 45 delay but still 10 minutes earlier arrived.that was very good."

Pros: "Comfortable seats on the long flight. The crew did their best to put together a vegetarian breakfast for me."
Cons: "It would be helpful to make meal choice an easy option as you are purchasing your flight, or checking in. More vegetarian options ready for guests on flight."

Pros: "Crew members are nice and attentive."
Cons: "Entertainment: they took away personal screen but then the "new" personal device entertainment option never worked on our roundtrip flight SFO-PVG. The movie froze every 10-15min even on their own big screen. Food was very disappointing even by airline food standard. I was not expecting it to be great food but hey at least provide some options with decent taste please? Comfort: Seats are tight and you will have very minimal space and an awkward position if the person in front of you recline the seat but you don't. Flight is old and seats are uncomfortable. Very little leg room"

Pros: "The only thing that was enjoyable was the economy plus seat that I was in."
Cons: "On the flight from Tucson to Houston we experienced United's personal entertainment where you could use your iPad to watch movies. On the reverse flight, this flight that I'm reviewing, this amenity was not offered. As far as boring goes, the TSA in Houston was rude in the boarding sign said pre-boarding only so we were waiting and I almost missed the flight because the sign never changed."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and got us to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding gate changed."

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and polite. Brought the drink cart around a couple times to make sure everyone was satisfied beverage wise."
Cons: "With it being a smaller plane there wasn't a whole lot of room for a 6'3" guy to sit comfortably for a long stretch. Although understandable for the size of plane it was my only dislike of the flight so overall a very good job."

Pros: "Very smooth from boarding to landing"

Pros: "Crew was courteous, though not very helpful. I liked the convenience of a direct flight."
Cons: "First the change fees. To reschedule for a week later would have cost over $800. I only paid $540 for the RT ticket! Second, my seat was broken and would not stay upright. Attendant simply told me to not lean back. Furthermore the audio in my wife's seat did not work; only produced static. Although we had these problems, and the plane was not full, the attendant did not offer a solution - like changing seats. Chinese airlines offer free second bag, and not cost changes. I will probably choose another carrier, even if it cost a bit more, for the extra flexibility and service"

Cons: "It is not a problem not to have a personal entertainment screen in front of you; but both the wifi system and the control in my chair arm were not working!! And this being a 14 hour flight !!"
