Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Inspire of bad weather, the pilot executed a perfect landing !"
Cons: "How about being stranded at Narita Airport due to bad weather AND not helping your passengers rebook. Told us the flight was cancelled at 10:30pm when suppose to fly out at 7:30pm. No trains or hotels available, only way to rebook was through their phone service? Which didn’t open until 8am. Why not rebook at the ticket desk, guess what? You can’t!"
Pros: "Food was excellent and service came frequently. In-flight entertainment was amazing."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable for economy, but that's about it. Unfortunately, everything else ranged between mediocre and okay. For non stop to Japan, I'd rather fly ANA."
Cons: "The whole entire class system that they are beholden to as if we're still living in feudal Japan. Swiss & Lufthansa serves more meals and at higher quality than JAL. The drinks were also blah. JAL focuses more on their Business Class and First Class Passengers. Even their luggage comes in first."
Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."
Cons: "There could have been a few more diverse choices on the entertainment channels but generally OK. The one complaint I had was that it was hot on most of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous, spoke multiple languages, they came around multiple times to offer beverages, pilot/staff kept us informed about reason for delay to gate, arrived earlier than expected, usb charging available, bathroom was cleaned multiple times during flight, clean bathroom, and there were toothbrushes/sanitary pads available in the bathroom, and enjoyed that they had Haagen Daaz ice cream."
Cons: "The pocket in front had no room to put a drink/bottle. Food was relatively better compared to other airlines but okay. Movie selection was good but compared to other airlines has less."
Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."

Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."

Pros: "Japan Airlines is a good airline. They treated my family and I well during our flight home. The food was excellent and healthy. We received hot towels before our meals and the staff were friendly and courteous, which is expected of Japanese service, in general.

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."

Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."
Pros: "I loved the service, the toothbrushes in the bathroom, the cleanliness of the bathroom throughout the flight, the snacks, and the kind flight attendants. This has been my best experience flying to the US from Asia! I would love to take Japan Airlines again as I was incredibly impressed by their services."
Cons: "The lack of quality movies and the way it was organized on the screen. They could organize movies and TV shows by categories instead of one big movie section."

Pros: "Great experience overall."

Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"

Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."
Pros: "The quick response of flight attendants and the comfort of the economy seats."
Pros: "It seems like it has little more space than other airline I use to ride for international. Entertainment has more verity to watch. Personally I thought I book the seat within 48 hours but they said it didn't go though but I got better seat though a ticket counter."
Cons: "Website is little confused and try to book the seat arrange wasn't work . Try to book mileage,book seats,see satuts of schedule over all Website is little confusing."

Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Pros: "The staff both when checking in and on board were excellent. The seating space was better than other international flights we have taken in the past and since. The food was better than what we received in the other flight we took later the same day (with another airline). We highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The entertainment options could be better - but this is just a minor flaw in their overall service."
Pros: "excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "no bottled water, the tap water tasted terrible and chemically treated! also the flight was delayed 15 minutes but ended up landing 50 minutes late, i cannot see how they were not able to make up the time in the air for something so small. I also saw premium economy and asked for an upgrade, they wanted $1000, which when i saw the cabin and the amenities was happy i didn't pay for because compared to Japan Airlines which charges a fraction of this for the upgrade, Cathay is a shame."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good with many choices to choose from."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable with little leg room, especially when the seat in front reclines back. A few years back I flew the same route with Cathay Pacific where the seats had hard backs and reclining did not affect the seat behind you. That was much better."
Pros: "Only one thing is good, which was the cabin crew of Cathay Pacific provided an excellent service on the plane. I saw smiles on the face and they were really helpful."
Cons: "Don't know why I couldn't check in online.. It made my flight experience terrible because I can only check in when I arrived at the airport, my husband and I had to sit separately. Food are not good in flight and the plane was so bouncing most of the time, it made me sick and have headache really bad."
Pros: "Stewardess responsive to requests"
Cons: "Seat headphones not working Toilet dirty"
Pros: "I've really enjoyed the comfort and the stellar services by Cathay Pacific staff. Keep up the amazing service!"
Pros: "* Good food twice, with readily available snacks upon request * Nice flight attendants who are ready to help * Big, nice, new-feeling plane, lots of bathrooms * Lots of information along the way * Diverse entertainment options, including some good non-blockbuster movie options from countries other than the US"
Cons: "* I couldn't get comfortable in the seat. I don't know why * They had us shut the window shades at a certain point and never had us reopen then, resulting in a 30-hour night for me that made me really uncomfortable (especially because every once in a while I'd get this wonderful burst of sun from a shade someone had opened and shut suddenly). * I didn't realize that I could just ask for refreshments whenever I wanted. I would have liked a flight attendant to tell me that from the beginning. * There were tons of disposables in use for meals. I brought my own silverware and water bottle to avoid using disposables, but it would be nice if they found some solution to that. * This is a small thing, but every time there was an announcement on the PA, the audio on my movie would drop back down to the default level (i.e., inaudible). I had to keep raising the volume and rewinding to catch up what I had missed."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Cons: "Larger plane. Had to crouch all the way to my seat. Seat was comfortable enough."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very caring, he made a difference in the overall flight. He was super friendly and ensured that I needed everything that I wanted and more."

Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Cons: "The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother."
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Cons: "No legroom at all & PA announcements were twice the volume of other media on entertainment system."
Pros: "The fare rate. The boarding crew were good. The onboard crew were not too friendly. No smiles."
Cons: "The seats seem to be tight. I’m only 120kbs and 5’ and yet I’m having a hard time squeezing into my seat. The food was ok. Entertainment is a big zero. The plane is okd style."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
Pros: "The movie/tv system did not work despite a lot of time trying. Very disappointing when taking a long flight with a 10 year old."
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"
Cons: "Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors....."
Pros: "Loved the individual TV & ability to charge my cell phones"
Cons: "Very tight leg room, no food to purchase, no snacks."
Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Hi, I couldnt make my flight as I was very ill and when I called to reschedule it, I was given a form to fill out and no help. So I am STILL stuck on Barcelona, trying to figure out how I can change my ticket and how much that will cost me. Why does it take a form? Why can't someone give me a price quote?"
Cons: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "There was a 3 hour flight delay in JFK but to be honest there is a lot to do in the airport and Nice bars and shops next to the gate so I was occupied. Annoying for family picking me up in Scotland however."
Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "I like that they let a 70-yo wobbly old man hobble the length of plane to get some hot tea because there's no climate control i the air craft, and let the poor old man hobble back by himself juggling the hot tea in his hand and trying his best not to fall. Plus I truly admire one of the air stewardess's ability to chew gum - she was chewing vigorously throughout the 7-hour long flight. Amazing."
Cons: "BA and AA is the best partners. Because both their air crew are clueless about service standards. A 7-hour flight from London to JFK, again no meal choices, no offer of drinks in between meal times - is this a standard Western service level?"
Pros: "Sad to say nothing"
Cons: "- boarding is poor in NY - service in plane extremely bad. Need to train their flight agents -they stole perfumes ((4) bottles and my watch Overall the worst airline I flew so far"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Cons: "Check in was total chaos. Food was horrible."
Pros: "It was on time and there was a pillow & blanket waiting in every seat."
Cons: "Poor video screens, no choice in fils without downloading & paying for their WiFi, and film language kept changing randomly from English to Italian!?!"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "I like assisting crew"
Cons: "Please make WiFi free low speed. Write anywere "Gate numeration is overall, without terminals""
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "We get used to cramped conditions on domestic flights but normally get more for international flights. The 777 was very modern but small cramped seats (3 4 3 configuration) meant for a tough journey and almost impossible to sleep."
Pros: "I like AA because they are honest and kind. I received good value for my money."
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Pros: "Seat comfort, the crew and the actual flight were good."
Cons: "Due to the extended delay I didn't get back to my apartment in NYC and to sleep until after 3 a.m."
Pros: "The service AA provides is very constant in time and that is good"
Cons: "Chairs could have more comfort"
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
Pros: "Lots of free movies."
Cons: "No free food."
Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"
Pros: "The rebooking services provided by Tawanna, who was very pleasant and helpful in a stressful time."
Cons: "Not getting home."
Pros: "I arrived at Dusseldorf"
Cons: "First flight was delayed 5:30 hours, so I was moved to different flights because I would not have made my connections but those flights were uncomfortable and had bad service and the people working didnt even so much as offer me complimentary peanuts"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and agents, employees care about providing quality customer service to the consumer."
Cons: "No media device on the plane to provide entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable and tiny. My wife is 5'4" &120 lbs and found her seat uncomfortable...we were also sitting in comfort seats. It is 2016, please stop the madness of having coast to coast flights with no entertainment available."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment available"
Pros: "Used miles to upgrade to Premium Plus. Excellent seat and food!"
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."
Pros: "lousy crew"
Pros: "The UI to watch videos on the plane is really good. They have good quality screens, so I watched movies for all the 12 hours of lfight I had."
Pros: "Service and punctuality"
Cons: "On board entertainment"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Da food, seat"
Cons: "Da Music"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Then for 2 of the 3 meals they missed even serving some rows entrees."
Pros: "- orderly boarding - calm crew despite many frustrating circumstances which delayed the flight"
Cons: "- Had to wait for catering to deliver carts before take off (this also caused a weight balance issue) - After carts were delivered, we were informed catering had forgotten one which caused more of a delay - While we were waiting, the plane started to become unbearably hot - After finally taking off, we were promised free Directv access for the delay but the entertainment was turned off 5 min into the flight due to technical difficulties"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Pros: "Had an entire row to myself. So I stretched out to sleep all the way on the red eye."
Pros: "Great staff and breakfast was very refreshing. Will definitely fly with United again."
Pros: "Flight was on timw"
Pros: "The fact that it was a large 777! Those just feel safer."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, food was average."
Cons: "The flight being cancelled. Wifi doesn't even come close to working. No personal entertainment. Communication was poor for the rescheduling of flight that led me to miss the next flight"
Pros: "Nothing it was late as hell"
Pros: "The entertainment worked for like most of the time (surprisingly) and I got an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "What can you expect from united... the crew members were terrible absolutely unprofessional and unwilling to help. We were delayed for 3 hours in Taipei due to an issue with the plane that they were trying to fix. During this time many people were trying to change flights as they had connections in SFO. When they asked the hostesses for help, they either got rude unhelpful responses or got completely ignored. United really needs to train their flight attendants better."
Pros: "Seeing as we were flying with ANA instead of United, everything was excellent, especially the crew. The food was amazing."
Cons: "there was absolutely no notfication that we were flying with ANA! I understand the flight was booked with united and you guys are part of the star partnership thing or whatever but it made finding out where to check in very stressful and time consuming! Stop overbooking your flights!"
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride....but I realize that can't be helped"
Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."
Pros: "The terminal was well supplied. I was worried because the line for security was so long, but it was automated and fully staffed - it was so seamless!"
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Pros: "United delayed departure from ROA due to a crew and mx scheduling problem. Unable to make BOI connection. Not back until next day."
Cons: "United reflowed aircraft and aircrew to other "more important " flights."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "All of my flights were delayed. Some because of weather out of PDX to but mostly due to inadequate maintenance all of which made me four hours late arriving and 2 hours late coming home. Also the app entertainment didn't work when I could use it and it wasn't available when my app did work. Plus my seat didn't recline for the four hour flight from IAH to PDX. I'm not super impressed by my last trip with United."
Cons: "Flight came in super late and missed the layover."
Pros: "The option to control my personal tv."
Cons: "Bad service. I was ignored when I it was time to order a drink. The attendant scolded me for using my service button. I wouldn't have used it if they hadn't entirely skipped my row. There were three of us sitting debit cards in hand to order drinks. The same attendant was very rude to a family with a small child and a man trying to put away his baggage at the start of the flight. I will avoid united in the future if possible."
Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"
Pros: "They helped me when my flight was delayed."
Cons: "The fact that they kept us on the plane for over an hour trying to fix a problem only to say that they didn't know when it would be fixed. They were lousy at explaining the problem and kept saying the same thing over an over. They basically told us there was a missing screw and they couldn't find it or reach it."
Cons: "All the food choices had some sort of animal product – eggs, dairy or meat"
Pros: "Quick boarding, the crew was great, arrived early"
Cons: "The wifi was inconsistent"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were to small as I was stuck in the middle of 2 other people."
Cons: "Very confusing on checking in. I spent 30 min calling Lufthansa trying to check-in ahead of time only to find out that I was actually flying United. Confirmation email did not make state that I was to check in with United Airlines. Also the confirmation number I received did not apply to United."
Cons: "The fact I had to purchase an entertainment package when I didnt previous flights. I felt as if the airline was takeoff advantage of a technical glitch."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "There was a gentleman that was upset because his seat had been switched around and he called the flight attendants incompetent. He stood by my seat as he waited for the issue to be resolved, that made me feel really uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."
Pros: "Everything went to well."
Cons: "Couldn't be more better."
Pros: "Very nice staff! Friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "Boarding could have been smoother."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, mindful, courteous at all times. The food was warm, well-cooked, fresh with a variety to please most eaters."
Cons: "The seats were a bit worn and mildly uncomfortable, but otherwise the flight was incredibly enjoyable."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "No leg room... Overbooked so I could not upgrade. The kid behind me kicked my seat for 3 hours"
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Pros: "The pilot and cabin crew"
Cons: "We boarded the plane on time then were delayed by 1 hour and parked on the Tarmac to wait for air traffic control to give us clearance to take off from Las Vegas to Los Angles, knowing that the LAX airspace was busy, it would of been wiser to of kept us waiting in the terminal, rather than in the plane with no facilities, drinks, and limited air conditioning in 90 degree heat."
Pros: "The flight attendants spoke Mandarin and were in general pretty friendly and helpful at one-off requests (for a cup of water, or removing trash when I could not) even when they seemed annoyed."
Cons: "The food on the international flight was terrible -- but I think that's to be expected on most American airlines. Eat heartily and happily before flying."
Pros: "The flight staff were courteous."
Cons: "The seats were too tight I was squished to the window by big person next to me and the person front of me reclined to tighten up the space more. My seat could not recline"
Cons: "Seats in economy are always short on the knees. Paying $25 for checked bag is way out of line. Free is better, but $10 max would be more than enough since fuel charges have gone way down for all air lines."
