Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."

Cons: "Cleanliness of tray table"

Pros: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."

Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible. I called 3 times to get headphones and they never came to give me any. The food was dry and we were only fed twice. I’m vegan/vegetarian so there wasn’t any options."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice, polite and helpful. We didn’t lose any luggage and intact. Foods are good and plenty"

Cons: "Old Aircraft Interior, could be more comfortable"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Cons: "Less announcements to interrupt the entertainment."

Pros: "Crew was good. The food was good quality."
Cons: "Boarding took along time and then the plane was delayed, not their fault but it made the trip less enjoyable. Manila is a poor hub."

Pros: "japanese airlines food is always better than u.s. airlines. service is also very courteous."
Cons: "disliked their entertainment system. no varieties in movies, and interface was a bit annoying as you could not see a visual menu of all movies and had to keep scrolling line by line to get to the next movie."

Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The staff was so very helpful and nice. Thanks a lot!"
Cons: "The great disinter service from the flight attendants made up for the delays."

Pros: "Flight was very good - enjoyed meal and entertainment"

Cons: "Hdhdhd"

Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Most all."
Cons: "Old business class configuration. Today, expectations are for lie-flat chairs, especially for longer flights leaving at very early hours."

Pros: "the service is good"
Cons: "the seat is too small"

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."

Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"

Pros: "Great service, everyone was happy to do their job"

Pros: "As always, the Japanese customer service is wonderful - I have no complaints in that department!"
Cons: "The boarding process is pretty annoying....they do not board until minutes before the flight time and we still had to take a bus to the actual plane. We took off late (which, personally, at this point, I had just been on a 14 hour flight plus the 2 hours layover) - a delay just added to the exhaustion. Also, the plane was very old and very hot...even though it was only a one hour flight, it was very uncomfortable and outdated."

Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Narita has poor general facilities overall. Therefore ANA should offer a discounted lounge facility for passengers with more than 4 hours transit. (I read that lounge food is surprisingly bad. I used the United lounge instead.)"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "VGML food was not good. Needs significant changes"

Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."

Pros: "Enjoyed the flight very much!"
Cons: "Too much scrutiny for my request for a double vodka screwdriver"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

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

Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All"

Cons: "More leg room."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing, keep at it"

Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"

Cons: "Overall: pretty good."

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

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"

Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"

Cons: "Old plane"

Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"

Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."

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

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

Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"

Cons: "Not enough room. Could have better technology and better food choices."

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

Pros: "What can I say...I love Delta!"

Cons: "The crew forgot to turn the heater on in -3°F creating a situation where the lavatory water lines froze. This caused a two hour delay which made me miss the second leg. Because I missed the second leg I was put on the very last flight out of ATL and got to spend Xmas eve in the airport."

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."

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?"

Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"

Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"

Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."

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 :("

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."

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

Pros: "Free rebooking"

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."

Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

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."

Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"

Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"

Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."

Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."

Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"

Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."

Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"

Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."

Pros: "Early arrival!"

Cons: "The food was really bad. There wasn’t a lot of variety in entertainment."

Pros: "Very nice new plane."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."

Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."

Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."

Pros: "New, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Salad 90% celery chunks, and beef that was 90% gristle. I paid extra for more leg room but got a bulkhead seat that had less leg room , and cramped, hard to access table and video screen."

Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"

Pros: "AA128 is nice. The plane is new and the seat is very comfortable. The service is fine."
Cons: "Food is at a very small portion ( I am a small Asian lady so I am fine but barely enough for a child.). My luggage was lost."

Cons: "No overhead space"

Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."

Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."

Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."

Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"

Cons: "Seats are cramped"

Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."

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

Cons: "I had a woman way too large for her seat crowd 6 inches into my seat which I paid extra for and she did not. She also had a baby which ended up with its head in my lap and she spills formula on me. My body was so contorted I couldn’t sleep the whole flight and it was a 14 hour flight. Dandy attendant tells the guy in the aisle seat That he was such a good passenger that if she had a metal she would give it to him. I’m sitting there like WTF I have only Peed once in 13 hours because the baby was in the bassinet sleeping and I didn’t want to disturb it. And the WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."

Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"

Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."

Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"

Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."

Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."

Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"

Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"

Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"

Cons: "Old Equipment"

Cons: "Got to charlotte with 80 minutes to connect. Sat on the tarmac for 60 waiting for a gate. Missed connection by <5 minutes. Thanks, AA!"

Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"

Pros: "Great service and friendly smiles."

Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly an American / American code share flight abroad again. I cannot believe they are flying this plane for trans-continental flight in 2016."
Cons: "1980's 757. Literally, I flew on planes like this in the 80's. American, please get with it. This was a horrendous flight. No in flight entertainment at all in 2016 on a 9+ hr. flight is unacceptable. Couple that with 1.25 hour delay AFTER the plane boarded. You should not be flying narrow body jets on flights this long. Much less ones with old, uncomfortable seats and zero entertainment options. I don't mean to sound entitled but this experience was night and day in every capacity (comfort, food, service, entertainment) from my flight to Europe on BA. Sad. Lastly, I sat next to a off duty American flight attendant who was quite rude."

Pros: "The flight attendants were not only exceedingly courteous, but they also knew how to put their guests in a good mood. They had fun with their job, which put me in a much better mood than I would have otherwise been in. Also, flight was efficient."
Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"

Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice. They were genuinely kind and helpful to the passengers."
Cons: "The overhead bins are small"

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."

Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"

Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

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

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."

Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"

Pros: "cheap tix"

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: "Still in Chicago"

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: "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!"

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

Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours And no one knew what was going on"

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: "Wheelchair was provided"
Cons: "Long wait for wheelchair"

Pros: "The flight attendant in coach was very nice."
Cons: "Seat assignment was last seat on the plane, next to the bathroom... and the luggage return was slow."

Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"

Pros: "Super nice crew."

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: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"

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: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."

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

Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"

Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

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 crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"

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 !!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"

Pros: "The lady flight attendant as the best I have ever had. I think her name was Jan."

Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Pros: "We got to Columbus early"

Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"

Cons: "Pay extra to watch TV, no individual TVs, food is terrible and only fed twice during 14 hour flight, rude attendants"

Cons: "They didn't have wifi"

Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"

Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"
