Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Cons: "I am very short (5’0”) but there just isnt enough room i cant imagine what a big person feels on a 9 hour overseas flight."
Pros: "Nothing cause it didn't happen"

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus. Movie."
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Let’s face it-no one likes a 14 hour flight. But the staff was great, food pretty good, movies flew by and we arrived early and happy and bags at baggage claim by the time we got"
Pros: "Everyone was great"
Cons: "The arm rests on both flights where impossible to lift to get out of our seats, the headsets had a lot of static, the head rest was broke on one side, the food to Germany was fine but back was horrible. Within 20mins of take off you were out of most alcohol and the wine was horrible."
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "The crew from MSP to LSE onboard were incredibly pleasant and nice"
Cons: "They wanted me to check my bag from MSP to LSE. They weren't as nice as they could have been about it. But in the end I didn't need to check it."
Cons: "We we missed our connection they wouldn't help us at all."
Cons: "I was separately seated from my husband and had to seat in the middle because my ticket status was economy"
Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, the crew on board was nice"
Cons: "Boarding and unboarding was unorganized and hectic. Also the crew broke my luggage and because I didn't go to the counter right afterwards I can't be reimbursed for it"
Pros: "Appreciated the crew keeping things low key as it was a night flight"
Cons: "There were several members of one family on the flight scattered all over the plane. They seemed to want to visit with each other before the flight (making it difficult for me to get to my seat) and during the flight (making it tough to get some sleep). It would be nice if they had been seated together so as not to disturb others. I know this really isn't Delta's fault, but some people aren't very conscientious"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Good choices were great and tasted great also.."
Cons: "seats not so comfortable"
Pros: "Drinks and great stewardesses"
Cons: "No phone charger."
Pros: "Lufthansa doesn't disappoint"
Cons: "Not much to ask for on a 60 min flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and boarding was easy"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Efficient loading. Flight was on time. Nice crew."
Pros: "they did good job"
Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"
Pros: "That the plane brought me safely to San Diego"
Cons: "Paid entertainment on a 12 hour flight"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Pros: "It was a smooth ride overall, the staff was comfort us."
Cons: "The food was terrible is like each year the value goes down."
Pros: "REQUESTED FOOD WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND STAFF WAS RUDE"
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "Surprisingly tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."
Cons: "Very crowded, the lady behind us was coughing her lungs out the whole flight. Flight was smooth but arrived behind schedule. Actually landed on time but we didn't get to the terminal for almost 15 minutes. The Frankfurt airport is a nightmare, worst designed airport I have been through."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Pros: "The entertainment was good on board"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a bit rude"
Pros: "Everything was excellent but the food could be better especially from Lagos to Frankfurt"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and did not help at all for rescheduling."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, and a timely take off. The crew was attentive and professional. The entertainment available made the 9 hours go by quickly!"
Cons: "The food was edible but not the best. The bread was especially disappointing-- ice cold and doughy! I hate those reclining seats. When you have your meal tray down it is impossible to move."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."
Cons: "This was a United flight from SF to FRA. The food tasted horrible and I didn't eat any of it. Green Tea ice cream is a very unique flavor that not everyone likes. What's wrong with vanilla or chocolate, a more neutral, well-liked flavor? The dinner was over spiced and looked unappetizing. The breakfast look like someone threw up. I hate to sound so negative, but it was really awful. The flight, itself, was fine. Nice crew and smooth trip."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean."
Pros: "Clean, good pilots and quick"
Cons: "Food was bad"
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine."
Cons: "Seating was cramped. Reclining seats are a bother. I'd love to see the seat ahead slide forward as it reclines to avoid invading the space for the passenger behind."
Pros: "very roomy seat for a small plane."
Cons: "Boarding occurred from two doors which caused long delays because people had to try and get by each other in the narrow isle. If they want to use two doors to load the plane they should at least direct the passengers that have seats at the back to go to the back and vice versa."
Pros: "The staff was so prompt and friendly"
Cons: "Cramped leg space, no entertainment"
Pros: "I have liked everything in lufthansa there was nothing to complain about thanks lufthansa for your respectful and helpful"
Pros: "A fast, smooth, and easy flight with a polite and efficient crew. The Frankfurt airport needs some type of internal transportation or reorganization because the size and shape make it a challenge to go through passport control and find your gate in time to transfer."
Cons: "The snack consisted of sugary packaged cookies. After waking at 6 a.m. to catch my flight, I would have preferred plain yogurt with fruit or muesli, or at least a nutritious nutty bar such as the KIND brand. The boarding consisted of everyone standing in a disorganized line next to another long line so that I was not sure if I was in the right place and felt nervous as the time to board drew near. Staff did not seem to be communicating what was happening and were not circulating. I had to ask fellow passengers if I was in the right line and on the right bus. We pushed away from the gate early. This worked against me at the beginning of my vacation when I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to the disorganized nature of the Frankfurt airport and its massive size."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."
Cons: "Food was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "their website did not allow changes nor did it provide a number to call"
Pros: "Everything was top notch… Wi-Fi, food, entertainment, comfort"
Pros: "Service was good. In flight selection of movies, music, tv etc was good. Flight camera was cool. Got a snack and drink in a 50 minute flight."
Pros: "Thank you very much for taking care of my mother she is 79 years old doesn't speak English. and needed wheel chair. and she was thrilled happy and very comfortable thruw all your flights. I want to thank you personally from the bottom of my heart because it's very hard for me to send her overseas with her condition and no language. you guys awesome thank you very much again."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Check in smooth and professional. Please change places with Asia air so you are in front of rather than behind the hoard of people."
Cons: "On my flight from Seattle to Frankfurt I had one stewardess repeatedly skip me. She was a bit older. I thought after the first overlook she would take extra care but did not. This resulted in me having to ask the crew to repeat their previous steps just for me. "Hi, I know you are serving coffee but I wanted red wine". She was a bit clipped about having to repeat steps but what was I to do? She never looked up enough to see my hand and clearly didn't look at my face. She also didn't pick up my hand towel. I essentially had to rely on the rest of the crew but the care from this lady started to feel purposefully negligent of me. The rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. I also thought we were supposed to get an appertiff...one was never offered. Couldn't check in online. Was fine once I got to the countr but could you trade space with Asia air? It makes sense to have them at the end as they have a huge hoard of people it would be nice not to have to go through and several spots to check in. Check in at the desk otherwise was smooth and professional."
Cons: "I was seated next to a family with an autistic child. Because they had checked in late, they were seated separately. The autistic child was unsetted by having to sit separated from both parents, causing quite a commotion during the whole flight. I couldn't rest during the whole flight. Lufthansa should do a better job with accommodating the needs of special cases like this, preferably when they book the flight or before they board. SFO boarding was slow and confusing. There was a backup being caused by having to seat 6 or more passengers in a wheelchair. Then, I followed signs for boarding in Economy, which was at the front of the A380. I was forced to the aisles to the back of the plane, where I prompty collided with other passengers that were boarding the rear entrance of the plane. Why wasn't I just asked to board from the rear entrance to avoid the congestion?"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat pitch is miserable, amplified failings in food and internet access."
Cons: "I had tried to postpone my return date, but found it extremely inconvenient dealing with vayama, the service Kayak linked me to. I had to call them at their Amsterdam office to arrange a different itinerary, only to be emailed in the middle of the night with the news that that itinerary was no longer available, and a replacement one would cost much more. Sadly, I was not able to deal with Lufthansa directly. Doubt I would use vayama again."
Pros: "Check in staff were excellent Flight staff were also excellent Seating was fine for short flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little random but in the end worked out OK. Breakfast food was not great, but that's because I forgot to ask for a special meal and can't eat dairy."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "Very positive and responsive crew! A fresh cup of coffee I received when I requested one was delicious. And,one of the crew members made me a cup of tea before they had started serving it."
Pros: "The frienliness of the crew, adecuate food, bathrooms in FRA-PHL leg."
Cons: "The frankfurt airport. Land on Gate A and had to walk 20 minutes to ger to gate Z (up and down escalators), the bathrooms in airplane from Ben Gurion to Frankfurt (very small and not enough head clearance at the toilet). The confort of seats on flight over 3 hours of sitting (I am 74 years old)."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Pros: "good amount of room on the plane"
Cons: "magazine on the plane is boring"
Cons: "The entertainment system was malfunctioning and the crew was not trained to resolve the problem. 9 hour flight without movies, music, tv..."
Pros: "I paid $118 for an extra legroom seat (D26) which then turned into a pass through for passengers to cut across to the other side to use the lavatory. This happened throughout the flight, hence took away the comfort I paid for and needed on this long flight."
Cons: "The food. I mean who makes this stuff?"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The chairs are hard and no lumbar support"
Cons: "How about not being 4 hours late."
Cons: "If delay to much pls let customer out of plane"
Pros: "The crew was great. Seats were awesome - right behind premium class so the extra leg room was great to have on such a long flight."
Cons: "We booked our flight in May for a flight on 30 September and our seats were not next to each other. Total opposite ends of the aisle. Lame."
Pros: "Clean plane, fast boarding process."
Cons: "No power to charge a device. This really is unacceptable in today’s world."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work neither did the flight attendants. They sat in the back and quite literally did nothing, no juice and water. Worst service ever. I'll fly Delta from now on. American what happened to you?"
Cons: "Cabin crew was good not great - expected more in flagship"
Pros: "I got to converse with the pilots before getting on board, and they were super awesome guys. Flight attendants were attentive and checked in frequently enough."
Pros: "Even though we left late, we made up time in the air."
Cons: "My aisle seat didn’t recline."
Cons: "Food was payable so should not even be a criteria here We had to collect our luggage coming from portugal to check them in Again in Miami. Really a burden. After 20 hours flying this was really annoying. Again Iberia saving money at the cost of clients"
Pros: "On time, super help , confortable"
Cons: "Disgusting Food. Extremely uncomfortable seats: unable to recline far enough, my knees on back of seat in front of me, unable to sleep at all the entire trip. This was American Airlines, not British Airways. Cheap headphones kept falling out of line in port. TERRIBLE FLIGHT, Never Again!"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Was seated with 2 screaming and kicking babies behind me"
Pros: "video choices"
Cons: "seat width leg space aisle are way too narrow"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Isles for walking are way too small! I mean you can’t walk normally. I am 5’11” 195 lbs. not big but I have to move sideways down the isle. This is a very dangerous situation in a emergency situation. Something needs to be done. The seat space between the seats is another story"
Pros: "Mostly really friendly crew members. Plane seemed new, first and business class looked lovely."
Cons: "Wihout question, the most uncomfortable seat ive ever been in. It was obviously a newer plane, long haul flight, and thw configuration maximized space for more passengers. Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."
Pros: "Attentive and caring flight crew. Speedy and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Food was not that great. Entertainment Monitor kept freezing which was a bit annoying."
Pros: "The flight was early to arrive. There was also a rather frightening bit of turbulence, and the pilot explained why it had occurred, which I found very reassuring."
Cons: "The food was definitely below average. It's virtually all carbohydrates.Other airlines provide you with a printed description of the menu options, so it's easier to make a choice. "Chicken or pasta" doesn't give the passengers any idea of what they are actually choosing. This time the chicken dish was served with pearl couscous, so it was basically pasta as well. The salad I was given was brown and wilted, and while the cabin attendants were kind enough to give me two salad that were in better shape (after meal service), I just think that quality control should have prevented a inedible salad from being served in the first place. I am also extremely opposed to American Airlines Transatlantic luggage fees. Since I was moving abroad rather than taking a short trip, I was not pleased about paying 100 USD for a second bag on top of an already expensive flight."
Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."
Pros: "Fast quick flight. Bags out quickly."
Cons: "Seats are far too cramped for someone who is 6,2."
Cons: "I paid $10 for the WiFi service and it wouldn’t connect at all. I had a short flight so i never got to send my emails off. American Airlines should refund me my $10."
Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "Deplaning at an inconvenient remote terminal with unattractive and minimal facilities, which involved waiting in a long line for a series of buses for transport to the main terminal. Arrival at the main terminal required climbing a flight of stairs. No in-flight food service offered except a choice between one cookie or one cracker."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"
Cons: "The set I paid for I didn't get that and service was not good at all"
Pros: "That it was over night"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Slow set up of gateway upon arrival"
Pros: "Fast service, wonderful crew"
Cons: "Our seats couldn't recline. It was such a long flight and sleep was difficult in a sitting position."
Pros: "Was able to store my carry on and arrived early"
Pros: "Wide selection of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "This was not food that was served in the Economy class. This was pure junk. I understand that airlines are saving on the service in Economy but a minimal quality should be maintained. I recommend to prepare some sandwich etc. and other snacks and to take it on the plane."
Pros: "Liked how good he crew was"
Cons: "How late the take off was and boarding and landing an hour later then expected"
Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on the plane."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Cons: "Only airline we flew that didn’t have pre boarding for families with small children."
Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."
Cons: "Need a better chess program"
Pros: "Entertainment, service, pilot and his crew were great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Can do better. As vegetarian there are lots of good places they can order the food from."
Cons: "Most disorganized boarding ever seen. cabin crew disengaged. food average."
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."
Cons: "Crew were consistently overlooking us in the middle section."
Cons: "There was no entertainment option available in the plane we flew in."
Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Cons: "Never got to board that plane due to delay of my previous flight."
Pros: "The attention from the staff during the flight,was excellent."
Cons: "I'd didn't like that we'd had to pay 50 dollars for a medium size luggage,when other passengers have,slightly smaller suitcase,a carry on a lap top or big purse."
Cons: "This flight was operated by American, but sold by Iberia and ticketed by airfare.com. When I tried to reserve a special meal, each party (American, Iberia & airfare.com) said they could not do it, that the other party had to do it. So, in other words, no company took responsibility for my customer satisfaction. So I am ultimately blaming American Airlines accountable since they, not Iberia or airfare.com, contracted with the food service provider at the airport."
Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."
Cons: "Leaving on time, or not being boarded until we were actually going to leave. We sat on the tarmac for 3.5 hours while we were hungry and thirsty. The communication was poor overall on why we wouldn’t leave. Terrible flight."
Cons: "I was sitting two rows from the bathroom and the entire time the bathroom reeked of urine. It was unbearable."
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Pros: "We had the most wonderful, friendly crew ever! They came around with good and drink many, many times! Such a pleasant and enjoyable experience!"
Pros: "That i finally got hom"
Cons: "I called bc of weather issues, and it said you may have a wait time more than 30 minutes. I waited 2 hrs and 45 mins without any update on how much longer it would be. The website told me to go to the airport the day before to see a representative. I went to the airport and they told me call back or come back the next day. Information was all inaccurate and after another 55 min wait on the phone (stated “more than 30 mins) i got an agent and rebooked my ticket."
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "Flight was quick and the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "I'm 6' tall and my head was above the headrest, so it wasn't super comfortable to lay back."
Pros: "The flight was on time! That’s very important to me and I appreciate it when my time is valued."
Pros: "Friendly crew good leg space."
Cons: "We were actually pretty close to on time. Just 10 minutes late."
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The worst airline ever"
Cons: "The way we were treated after the natural disaster with Harvey. It was no ones fault. I would have been willing to pay for a new ticket, for a price that would have benefitted both parties. Not only that, when i went to airport i was charged for luggage even tho I did not have a seat. I had to fo back for a refund! You thieves, SOB's using a disaster to thief people!!"
Cons: "Extremely small plane. No tv in headrests or on plane, Not enough room for everyone's carry on, no usb charging ports, don't offer unlimited snacks and beverages. They did not offer ANY drinks or snack on this flight which is ridiculous."
Pros: "The flight landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "Flight crew skipped our row when serving drinks. Never had that happen before. Gave us a puny snack with a of couple pretzels in it!"
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Cons: "Very scary flight"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding gate attendant very unpleasant. Non-existent service on board. Wifi stopped working after an hour and since the entertainment system uses the wifi - so did the entertainment system."
Cons: "My flight was delayed (not due to weather) almost 4 hrs"
Pros: "Staff service was excellent. I like the offset business class seats with more privacy"
Cons: "Need better bedding materials. Food was sub par."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."
Pros: "They worked diligently in getting all of the people to their connecting flights. And this multiple groups going all over Europe"
Cons: "The repeating loop of the entertainment console was a little annoying. If no one is sitting in front of the device it would be nice if it just turned off"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was way too hot on SFO-SBA, fortunately it was a short flight. Uncomfortable, narrow seats with sparse leg room. Kayak should add an 'N/A' to the survey for certain categories, e.g., entertainment which is not available on some flights."
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
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: "I had an excellent flight, really US NAVY we all fly awesomely. Thank You."
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Heavily delayed, kept getting later"
Pros: "Being able to use a digital boarding pass."
Cons: "On my outbound trip my connecting flight changed gates. There was no notice from United or on the terminal monitors. United sent me a text saying my connecting flight had departed already, but when I got to the gate a representative brusquely informed me the flight was departing from the other end of the terminal."
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"
Cons: "The fact that the person next to was in my seat as well"
Cons: "I sat between two oversized men and was uncomfortable the whole flight"
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I am still stranded and was given no accommodations so had to pay for a hotel in addition to costing me a full day's wages in missed work. The United staff I spoke with by phone and in person were neither helpful not pleasant. I will go out of my way to never fly United again."
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "quick easy boarding"
Cons: "Old plane. Magazines were old and missing several pages."
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time, workers were courteous, gates were easy to find."
Pros: "Loading was quick and easy with smiles and greetings from hostesses"
Cons: "No drink service on either flight, dumped on jetway and had to take bus to a gate and then navigate to our new gate. This made short layover time even shorter. I flew United down there and had drink service for that led of flight with them."
Cons: "Why should I have to pay to watch tv? I know you don't have to pay on Southwest, Virgin America or Jet Blue. Not sure that a very (and I mean VERY SMALL) snack can be considered food"
Cons: "Pilots capabiliy. Excellent smooth landing. Friendly crew."
Pros: "I loved the crew, everyone was very nice. And the flight was great too. I will be using United Airlines in the future for my flights."
