I liked nothing about how my ticket was handled. I booked my flight through kayak. I sent my passport in for renewal 7 weeks ago. I waited until the last day Hoping I would receive it. I did not in time to make the flight. In order to rebook it would cost $500 more Than I already paid. I couldn't do that so I asked for a voucher. My refund was $90 out of the $1000 I already spent. I feel like I've been raped. Not only did I not make the trip I lost 90% of the money I paid for the ticket. Took me a year to save the money for the trip.
Pros: "Extensive selection of movies. Brand new 787 aircraft. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "Didn’t like how old the plane was. Didn’t have any entertainment, and food was bad. Seats were not very comfortable and not much leg room."
Pros: "Calm flight that was ahead of schedule"
Cons: "One surly flight attendant. No enough chance to sleep"

Cons: "Food Seats so tight"
Pros: "Staff was very kind"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Again, we had heard stories of kids being separated from adults, but all family was together. Many entertainment options and friendly staff. Also, when I asked at gate, the attendant allowed our family with 3 kids ages 5, 7, 9 to board with one of the earlier groups. That helped a lot as it took the kids a little longer to get all set and we were not hurried."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Pros: "It had 1980 common program and not an in seat outdated"
Cons: "The plane was delayed while we were in our seats for almost 2 hours and weren't even offered water while we waited. There was no individual TV screens for an international flight, that's ridiculous. The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."
Pros: "The whole crew was amazing! The food was actually decent and nicely warmed. Everyone was really friendly and the on-flight movie selection was great."
Cons: "Truly an awesome flight. I can't think of anything that they could have done"
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. But leading up to it not so much."
Cons: "Please inform travelers that their passport must not expire within 3-6 months of their trip to France. I was unaware of this and was not allowed on our flight in Philadelphia because my passport would expire in two months. We lost an entire day in France because I had to go to the customs office the next morning and get an emergency passport. I travel frequently, but somehow was not aware of this rule. If I had known I would have fixed the issue months ago. Multiple people viewed my ticket and passport before arriving in Philadelphia and no one caught this error until right as I was boarding the flight to Paris."
Cons: "My flight IB 4190 from DFW to Paris on 11/11/17 @ 17:55 was operated by American Airline. I was denied to pay for my second check in bag for the simple reason that I didn't buy my ticket with American Airline!! According to American Airline agent (Danielle) at the counter, a ticket purchased with Iberia only allow 1 check bag for free and you are not allow to check in an additional bag. I called the travelling agency and Iberia customer service agent (Jose) while I was at the airport. They both told me that I should go with the luggage rule of American Airline which allow passenger to pay for a second bag. Danielle refused to talk to both agents I called. I need someone to tell me how my luggage can be send to me to Paris please. I had a very bad experience with this trip. Please help clarify the discrepancy!"

Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO BAD WEATHER IN MIAMI."

Cons: "We purchased seats and they changed them without telling us so we picked new ones. Well guess what, we get to the airport and the same thing. I was seated at the front of the plane and my fiancé was at the back. Luckily a nice gentleman switched seats with me and we were able to sit together but it was the last seats that did not recline on an 8 hour flight. We will never fly American again. Their customer service offered no help and was extremely rude to us."
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Nice to flight in a plane like this"
Cons: "Unexpected changes in the boarding gate, not clearly notified"
The food was probably the worst I’ve ever had in any flight. All 3 of us felt nauseous and sick from it.
Pros: "Plenty of free seats to maintain distance. Quiet plane"
Cons: "Vegetables, salad"
Pros: "Your willingness to proceed with flying into a pandemic zone with total travel lockdown."
Cons: "allowing travelers that have been advised not to travel to Europe to either change or refund their flights. Your system for this is a bureaucratic nightmare, and the responsible thing to do in a time of crisis is allow people to make the right decision to stay in place. I am done using your service."

Pros: "The crew was great! And efficient!"
Pros: "The space in economy was bigger than expected. All the staff were very pleasant."
Cons: "I understand budget constraints but the food was mediocre. Can someone relook at choices."

Pros: "Good plane good entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Attendants could not put could together. I bought business ckass tickets to my daughter and her husbandfie their honeymoon. They could not use the business lounge: when they arrived they were told that they needed to wait in front of the boarding gate. They waited two hours asking many times why they could not get their seats. They were ordered to stand by and wait to be called. Finally they insisted and they got two sits but not side by side. It was too late to use the business class lounge. What a shame. Food was so basic. Noodles overcooked with few veggies that all. Cabin attendants we're stressed and rude"
Pros: "Great service from crew"
Cons: "Good but too little"
Pros: "The crew."

Pros: "Check in and boarding went very smoothly. The crew was very attentive. They came through the cabin several times with the drink cart.

Cons: "Long flight but that is to be expected"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had on a plane. Entertainment and internet down for half the flight after a delay at the airport for maintenance. Finally had United app. No free WiFi."
Cons: "I was exiting your airplane bathroom and my wife was entering when the flight attendant placed her arm in front of my wife and said, “I’m sorry but I’m working so that means I have dibs on this bathroom.” She then entered the bathroom and shut the door on my wife’s face. I was furious and speechless to witness such frank rude behavior and horrible customer service. I would like to think that United Airlines prides itself on better customer service than this. My wife and I have other choices when we fly and we will certainly think twice before we fly United Airlines again."
Pros: "The flight was quite clean an comfortable. The crew was very engaging and polite."
Cons: "There wwere no gluten free food selections"
Pros: "You’re entertainment options far exceed your competitors. The food (vegetarian) was excellent."

Pros: "Speed of flight"
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "I don't love to fly, so I wasn't thrilled about a 7 hour flight. Actually, the flight itself went well, good food (for an airplane), staff was VERY nice, and boarding was easy enough. My issue unfortunately the people sitting behind me with 2 kids under age 3-4 years old. One of the kids screamed and cried for probably close to 5 hours. I didn't sleep at all. At one point, he cried for a continuous 2 hours while he kicked my seat. I felt like the staff should have asked if they could help, maybe suggest walking him around, etc. The child must have had ear pain, he cried constantly. I felt so badly for him."
Pros: "The econmy class seat was just fine for a cross atlantic flight from Chicago to Paris and I am almost 60! Good entertainment and service. Seats were comfortable. Language was not a barrier. Good value because it was non-stop and a no hassle plane changing circus! Thanks."
Cons: "Food was airline style and could have used some fresh fruits and bakery goods. But overall it was very passable."
Pros: "Nice vegetarian meal option. Good food and service overall."
Cons: "It wasn't a Lufthansa flight. Both our connecting and international flights were United. We specifically bought the ticket because we have had excellent exeriences on Lufthansa. We were dissapointed to find out we were actually flying United. Entertainment system was down so there were no movies the entire way and we were seated in an exit row where the seats did not recline. Extra leg space was nice but I would have declined the seat if I had know the chair wouln't recline."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Food was fine."
Cons: "Relatively small plane for a transatlantic flight, so a little crapmed with 3x3 seating. Delay in boarding."
Pros: "Nothing except when it was over."
Cons: "Two aborted takeoffs. Four plus hour delay. Missing all my connections. Wine dumped on me. Insufficient food vouchers. The absolute worst customer service trying to receive compensation."
Cons: "I asked the service attendant when I checked my lagage to change my seat to an aile seat. Even though there weren't anybody awaiting in line she could not be bothered, she got rid of me and asked me to do that at the gatw. By the time the gate opened there weren't any ailel seats. The service people are trained to be rude and treat all passagers as slaves. I would not fly United if I will have a different opinion."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Entertainment; only 2 lavatories for approximately 40 business class passengers"
Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"
Pros: "Seats are very narrow."
Pros: "My last flight to Europe was on Lufthansa and I have to say, this was better. Decent food, efficient staff, relatively comfortable plane."
Cons: "They were a bit brusque, but not rude."

Cons: "it got cancelled and di not have"
Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
