Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "Excellent crew, quick serving a lunch on a 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Just don't like all the trips to and from flights on the bus at Doha."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The airplane and clean"
Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"
Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"
Cons: "Flight planned to leave 30 mins earlier and didn’t send any email or informed me."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "It has good sized toilets"
Cons: "Snacks and candy served we're of low quality. No prayer facilities inside the plane. They didn't allow me to pray though I got some empty spot to do so. They brought the issue of safety. While fasten seat belt sign was on I found people standing, walking, using toilet etc but air Crew did never brought up the issue of safety."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Crew helped with my bags."
Cons: "Lack of film choice"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."
Pros: "Todo estuvo prfecto"
Cons: "La comida no es nada del otro mundo"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."
Pros: "Best thing is 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "Food and service in economy could be better. Nothing special about Qatar."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seat in front of me was occupied by an adult who kept bouncing and reclining seats. The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "movies were good."
Cons: "14hour flight and you cannot give terrible food. You should know that. Although, a crew member did give extra food i request for a thing I liked."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."
Pros: "Plenty of room."
Cons: "Heavier snacks."
Pros: "Great crew. Good food. On time."
Cons: "The snacks were limited. They only had cheez-its and no cookies."
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My reservations were messed up and I had to wait for another flight to my final destination."
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing went wrong."
Cons: "We had a 5-hour layover in Atlanta. That was a bit long."
Cons: "Our brand new stroller was damaged on our flight."
Pros: "Actual flight was great!"
Cons: "Delays were awful, and the ground crew was unhelpful in helping people find earlier alternatives to the delayed flight."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
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."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived as scheduled. Just as it should be."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "Quick boarding, great seats and everything went on schedule."
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"
Pros: "The food is always good on delta, entertainment is great as well, and the seats are comfy as long as you’re not seating next to someone obnoxious."
Cons: "The staff is always ao disorganized, sometimes even unprofessional, they talk about other passengers, their shoes don’t match, when they did announcements on the PA they forgot what they were saying or they made mistakes and had to correct hen making it all very confusing. I fly often so I know the drill but those things must make the flight super uncomfortable to someone inexperienced."
Pros: "Timeliness, easy trip"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight."
Cons: "Everything fuckin sucks"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Nothing Special"
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "no one woke me up"
Pros: "WiFi and free tv shows"
Cons: "My seat wouldn’t recline"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Normal too squished conditions."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Cons: "Courtesy, on time and good communication."
Pros: "Kind bar"
Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Cons: "It was announced that there would be lunch shortly after takeoff and then a snack about 2 hours before landing. The lunch was ok, but then the snack (multiple small items) was offered about 4 hours before landing and then an additional snack (mini pot pie) was offered about 2 hrs before landing. This is too much action for people who are trying to get some sleep. Also, abrupt and hard landing."
Cons: "Aircrafts were not maintained well and they had to return causing a 4+ hr delay"
Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "The staff was really nice and the pilot was very open and telling us the status of the "on hold" that we were experiencing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was nothing the airline could do because it was beyond their control."
Pros: "Great crew presentation of safety and other announcements, friendly anf courteous, except..."
Cons: "crew seemed to arbitrarily decide not to serve anything on the flight. Announced the flight was too short to serve anything, so they didn't even try. I've flown this hop many times and have never heard this excuse."
Pros: "New plane, nice comfort seat"
Cons: "The snack selection...pretzels or cookies!"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."
Pros: "Flying Delta is always a great. Gate agent and crew are top notch."
Cons: "That when ever I try Delta there is a dramatic event that is mishandled and causes my flight to be extremely delayed or canceled. Promised to never take delta. I booked KLM and didn't know delta would be involved. Horrible."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Pros: "Lots of movies available!"
Cons: "One small bag bag of peanuts?!?"
Pros: "Price line is better not thief like you yu take my money for nothing my husband not traveling your given me fake tickets . bring my money back on my account. am gonna take to court yu fukin beach.yubstolen my money"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 minutes with no updates"
Cons: "The plane was not stocked appropriately- ran out of mist drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great. Let me sleep and was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Not having had to be on a connecting flight in a totally different terminal 20 minutes after I land in Newark."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "Seats were hard and stiff with no padding on the backrest. There was minimal room and even less overhead storage. The seats were in between the windows so you couldn’t really see outside of someone else shut the window on you. Thein"
Cons: "We were delayed in Chicago due to weather coming home from Europe. We were not allowed to use the business class lounge even though we paid for business class tix. My family is still sitting in the airport waiting on their flight to dallas. We have been up now for over 24 hours. We should be allowed to be someplace comfortable for the price of the business class tickets. poor form on Lufthansa’s part."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, i was stuck in the airport for hours, i missed my meeting because of the first flight. I understand one flight being delayed but two? Are all of your flights like this? Because if so, i cannot rely on united Airlines"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Flexibility in changing reservation at the last minute. Excellent service on board, good food."
Pros: "I was happy to be able to get a flight on a flight that offered free entertainment through the United Mobile app. I just don't understand why your airline doesn't offer free internet and entertainment. It seems like a small price to pay to keep your passengers comfortable. Get with the program and the rest of the industry."
Cons: "Once again, United first changed my flight which increased my layover from a little over an hour to three hours, and then our flight was delayed by three hours, making our total layover time over six hours. United does this more than any other major airline. I am actually considering switching my United Mileage plus credit account to one of your competitors."
Pros: "Staff in Syracuse where awsome from the guy at the united check in Guest to the TSA Gal who had to give us a patdown super sweet and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and everything went as planned"
Cons: "Smaller seats"
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "I finally got there a day later"
Cons: "No gate number listed on boarding passes in SYR plane arrived and departed early with no communication to myself. Missed the flight"
Pros: "The gate agent in Syracuse was a huge help. I have a service dog and he was very helpful and considerate."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room"
Cons: "Customer service is terrible. I dislike 'having' to travel to Midwest. Options are terrible. Delays, delays. No leg room"
Pros: "Ground crew"
Cons: "I just plain feel like United lied to me/ passengers. Entertainment overpriced. Wifi doesn't work. Maintenance delays. Long wait for baggage. United Airlines is one of the worst. Unhelpful at customer services."
Cons: "I called about changing my travel dates to later dates and they wanted $200, each direction, to change them. That's more than it cost to buy the later tickets, outright. In other words, the message from United is: "How about we keep your money *and* we fly someone else in your seat (because we overbook)?". Okay... how about I never fly on your airline, again."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Delayed flight coming and going!!"
Pros: "The flight attendant let me put my guitar on the plane."
Cons: "The flight was an hour delayed."
Pros: "Although the seats were cramped the cushion was comfortable. The flight attendant was very personable."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters."
Cons: "That they gave my seat from Chicago - Denver to someone else. Was sitting in the waiting area. Waiting to be called in, couldn't understand the person talking. They also did it to another person. Will never fly United again after this trip!!"
Cons: "Lack of information from United. Eventually had to buy a ticket from another airline."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "I actually liked the smaller plane! There was more room on the flight than I expected"
Pros: "Airline paid him"
Cons: "Everything went wrong on this flight! My son is a freshman student at Syracuse, was forced to spend two days (!) waiting for next flight."
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours to wait for crew that was delayed elsewhere as they were coming off duty and had to presumably fly them back to Burbank so our entire flight was held to wait for them."
Cons: "The delay of 1 and 1/2 hours caused us to miss the next flight. We called United to report the delay and they promise us the next flight was going to be held. They didn't. Don't make promises you can't keep."
Pros: "On time! And great service"
Pros: "Long layovers and changed flights where not pleasant... I normally fly with Alaska Airlines and this never happens with them .."
Cons: "I did not like the seats. I was unable to recline and rest the way I wanted and did not like having to wait 45 minutes for baggage claim to drop my bags"
Cons: "Having to walk a LONG distance from one terminal to the next and almost missing my flight due to delays. Then we had a delay from the bridge from plane to the airport was not working!!!"
Pros: "I missed my flight due to an unexpected car accident. The first two Kayak agents I delt with tried their best to help me by calling United and getting the fees waived for me, but they had no luck.The third agent was successful. All three agents were wonderful, compassionate and wanted to help. The third agent was successful and I appreciate all that was done for me."
Cons: "On both legs of my flight, I watched an hour of a movie on my iPad using United's app, and then the network failed. And I couldn't get the first movie on the second leg, so I couldn't finish either. Very frustrating."
Pros: "United entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "The fact that I had to rent a car and drive ... When I bought a flight ticket."
Cons: "Oh geez flight cancelled, what didn't I like?"
Cons: "..there was a very drunk passenger on the flight. He spilled wine all over another customer. The flight crew kept serving him more alcohol even though he could barely stand with out falling down. Unfortunately, he would shut up the whole trip, speaking in a very loud voice to his seat mate who was clearly not interested in the conversation."
Cons: "Small loud plane"
Pros: "Flights was ontime"
Cons: "Plane was too hot, and then way to cold. This seems to be a re-occurring problem. I am not sure why the plane can't just be set to be be 68-72 degrees. There is no need for it to be above 80 or less than 60."
Pros: "The crew that helped get everyone booked on another flight did an outstanding job. Too bad we had to sit around for 3 hours to find out that the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Not enough communication as to the flight being canceled. Too long to inform us that it was canceled. We were told that the flight was always on time with the exception of the past few days. We were told that the service was starting to slip."
Pros: "newer, quieter jet"
Pros: "We had a delay and everyone was very helpful!!"
