Cons: "Food was a bit too rich, maybe a lighter option in the menu would be useful as both were quite thick sauces."

Cons: "The staff asked for my return ticket to the U.S. I told them I have a round trip ticket from and to Japan. I have to show them my U. S. Navy identification card otherwise Air New Zealand would not have processed my boarding pass ticket. Air New Zealand discriminates."
Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Cons: "departed to late .. nearly missed connecting Auck- Hong Kong. Suitcase was left behind .. will receive 498 hrs later .. not good enough"
Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"

Cons: "I had requested a vegetarian meal and was not given one. And even if there was an error in me requesting a vegetarian meal they should be stocked with extra."

Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic"
Pros: "The food was good and there was enough room in Economy. The staff was friendly. Lots of movies and shows to choose from. I felt more comfortable on a 12 hour international flight than a 2 hour domestic flight."
Pros: "Over all the flight was excellent. My previous flight with them was terrible but this flight was awesome. It was great that there was a headphone jack in the entertainment system so you could take your own better headphones. Only issue is that when you are taking off or landing you aren't allowed to have a cable between your seat and screen so you will have to resort to using the supplied ones plugged into armrest if you want to continue to listen to movies or audio."
Cons: "When playing videos on the entertainment system there was a glitch that made the movie play from the start when paused. This also happened for my wife. Also the displays no longer tilt so when the passenger in front reclines their seat your display is on a terrible angle."
Cons: "Poor movie selection"
Pros: "The foot rest helped but did not come up as high as in the video so had trouble with my knees. If it had been level with the seat I could have slept."
Pros: "The reclining seat pitch and space by feet and under seat was great. Staff was nice."
Cons: "The food was so awful. I could t eat the chicken only the plain rice. Please just provide more plain food not heavily seasoned. Bread meat starch and veggies would be perfect. The headphone speaker volume contrast between hearing the tv and when the pilot chimed in. It blew out my eardrums every time! The soap dispenser shot out all over me and made a mess."
Cons: "Air new Zealand should upgrade their Business class. Seats are old, like 15 years ago airlines. Video old style, air show did not work during entire flight. Cabin crew said they can reset it but not sure it's going to work. Food was OK. Air Tahiti Nui offers a better service between PPT & AKL"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Entertainment was great! Comfort was decent but much better that the previous flight with Air Canada. The overall the feeling that I get from Air NZ and their employees is that they have FUN! It's infectious and makes for a great flight experience."

Cons: "This was ok"
Pros: "Skycouch Food Wine"
Cons: "Legroom can be better, even though it was good"
Pros: "Smooth flight except turbulent at times"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Vancouver which was great in that I didn't have to change planes."
Cons: "I felt claustrophobic as if a was in a can of sardines, but to my relief I found a light sleeping pill in my handbag and was able to feel relaxed. I am not overweight but felt it was very difficult to reach for my handbag on the floor. As I said, in all seriousness, there was not an inch of space to move without saying excuse me to the person beside me. I must add that whoever made the rules for seating space between the rows on the aircraft must have been paid off heavily. The flight attendants were great."
Pros: "The crew was incredible ! And the entertainment options as well"
Cons: "Space was so tiny ! Couldn't get comfortable and usually never have a problem sleeping on planes."
Pros: "Love the space seats. Excellent space and service. More ordered boarding. Air New Zealand staff very helpful (even provided tape to secure box after it had been left out in the rain after an earlier American Airlines flight)."
Cons: "Long flight (but that's not their fault!)."
Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"
Pros: "Excellent Service and most friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. But the food taste can be better"
Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"

Cons: "Space of the seat and the ground crews(aiports) how come their less friendly than the crew on board!"
Pros: "Excellent on board staff"
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."
Pros: "Good food, overall good service"
Cons: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"
Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."

Pros: "I had aisle chair on a Moscow to Doha leg"
Cons: "I asked for aisle seat on all flights. They gave me window seats except Moscow to Doha leg"
Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."
Pros: "great service, food, friendliness of staff, clean plane"
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Cons: "A little crowded but still great service."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable . the movies were very good."
Pros: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"

Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help.

Pros: "Overall a decent flight."

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."
Cons: "I have transit for 18 hours and they did not give me a hotel I had to pay for it because they were saying my ticket is not eligible are you really get disappointed from this"
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "The entertainment and staff were unsurpassed. The food was better than industry standards."
Cons: "The seat was terribly uncomfortable. The seat bottom has a ridge that digs into your rear. This was on both 380 flights and I tried three seats in total. After a couple of hours is when the pain starts. If the seat back was moved forward, you would not sit on this edge. Please fix. Not sure I could fly on a 380 again for this duration."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay AN EXTRA $250 FOR A BAG!!! I will never recommend this site to my worst enemy"
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."

Cons: "Door could not be opened st LHR for about 20 minutes longer than usual"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."
Pros: "I like that Jet blue offers movies on the flight and that they accepted Emirates international baggage rate without any questions. That was very important."
Cons: "I can't think of anything negative."
Cons: "sometimes the cabin crews didn't show up at all when I needed water or a drink, had to get out of my seat and get it. Seats were not comfortable for a 14 hour flight and think food quality could be improved a little"
Cons: "I got 21 hours overlay in Dubai without the airline providing with a room!!! There must be a clear explicit information at the time of buying the ticket that they do NOT provide room for long overlay. It's stupid to buy such ticket at such price and ending paying a lot for taxi, girl and meals later on. There are better options available. Not once I saw the crew smiling in my flight from Cape Town to Dubai. However my flight from Dubai to USA was great with an excellent professional and lovely crew."
Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."

Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and attentive. The flight was clean and smooth. I appreciated that the flight attendants had everyone keep their windows closed."
Cons: "I ordered a special meal on my return flight and though it was good it did not have the full options of the regular meal and was much less food. Because of his I was hungry much of the flight. My first flight, that I booked through Emirates, was Fly Dubai and was over four hours and they did not offer any food or drinks, not even water. My departing flights to India both offered food and drinks and there was more food in the meals. This inconsistency was very disturbing. Also the video touch screens did not work properly on any of the flight which was ver frustrating. We had several small children and parents let them wander. This was very hard to tolerate and I think the flight attendants should have asked the parents to manage their kids better."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."
Pros: "It was the best meal that we have ever had in economy - flavourful, and well presented!"
Pros: "Hetti g home"
Cons: "Checking in terrible over two to get checked in and boarding. Cabin service very very slow and to top it all our luggage did now show at destination"
Pros: "Good crew , on time boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work for a whole aisle. Crew didn't even acknowledge that it was not working."
Pros: "The crew were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Small and cramped seats."
Pros: "This flight was good better than I thought it would be crew very nice."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline."
Cons: "Seat was broken and light didn’t work. Terrible response when I pointed it out."
Pros: "The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese."
Cons: "Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant served a snack and drink, flight was good got us there on time pleasantly surprised thanks United ."
Cons: "Slow boarding process should use front and rear boarding but then again all airlines do it and flight boarded 30 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Pros: "The crew , living on time"
Cons: "I had no dislikes"
Cons: "The crew was pretty rude on this flight for some reason."
Pros: "Flight is okay but may turn horrible when one is flying on an EMPTY stomach . At least they could add a few dollars to the ticket price and carry out this most needed thing --- FOOD"
Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Ride was good. Attendants were good. Other passengers were cooperative and compliant."
Cons: "This plane, as most others nowadays, was cramped for space."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very very accommodating and funny. also Mariana was able to change our seat assignments so all three friends were seared together"
Pros: "Airbus is the best commercial way to travel"
Pros: "Flight was very quick and On time. Aircraft was small but comfortable. Was only one flight attendant. Could tell her was kind of new. But he did alright."
Cons: "Temperature was a bit too cold. But I managed. Glad snacks and non alcoholic beverages were still complimentary."
Pros: "WiFi was awesome"
Cons: "Wish the TV preview was continuous & pay for movies but watch regular TV work no charge"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight."
Cons: "Broken WiFi"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "This is not just in United but other air lines as well, when we are enjoying a movie or trying to sleep The volume on the intercome is very loud n there's way too many words that we don't need to hear so it will make a shorter making less talk time on the intercome."
Cons: "Overcrowded, rude attendants, and attitudes. Was told my carry on was to be checked in due to overcrowding and I counted 9 yes 9 openings in the overhead compartments as I approached my seat. Delayed flight, 15 minutes to get to next flight and was not helped to get to the other end of the airport"
Cons: "I specifically said the aisle seat and on both flights United put me on a middle seat and on a window seat. Both flights were late. I almost lost my connection flight. It was so late that I didn't have time to eat or use the bathroom in my layover. As soon as I got into the plane they closed the doing because my first flight was super late. Then on the food service I wanted to buy food and by the time they got to my aisle they didn't have anything ( just the horrible pretzels) I'm super disappointed with United."
Pros: "I was very happy with the crew and how efficient they were."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to upgrade to get a boarding pass."
Cons: "The snacks. Zesty ranch were not very good. No wifi available Delayed texts were not accurate"
Pros: "Flight was on time, clean aircraft and friendly crew."
Pros: "The flight was good and with very little turbulance. Pilot did good with avoiding it!"
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous! Why don't they load the last rows first so there are not people standing in the way and holding things up. I don't want to sit on a plane for 20-30 minutes with a child waiting to "go up in the air" its just more confusion. The lines to board were so long it was going into the next boarding area."
Pros: "The pilot and crew responded very well to the delay. Very friendly on the intercom, offered the small things like a full drink and tv access. Good response to a tough situation."
Cons: "Pilot mentioned we would be delayed so we could de-ice, understandable because it was freezing and had snowed all day. his original estimate on the delay was 30 minutes, it took over an hour at least."
Pros: "The agent who checked me in tried to find me a better connection, but in the end, it took me 9 hours to get from Tampa to Montreal. Never made Newark as I Hubbed in Chicago."
Pros: "CHANGE OF FLIGHT WARNINGS"
Cons: "United Airlines needed to repair plane caused a delay. But Safety First ;)"
Cons: "As an international traveler I find it annoying to have to pay for my bags on an internal domestic flight. There should be some reciprocation with partner airlines to cover baggage if coming from international to domestic flights"
Cons: "We boarded 40 minutes late, and there was no communication as to why or how long we would be waiting: Also, it was a full flight and there were no prior requests to check bags or how to board. Boarding took a very long time, once we finally started, because there was very little organization and they were taking bags to check once they didn't fit, while people were still getting on the plane. Also, crew members were holding up the line."
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and was early landing"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "It was a quick effiicient flight. Boarding and security was a breeze."
Cons: "Peanuts and a few movies should not kill their budget. Especially if you have acreens in every seat. Charging $7 for a 2 hour flight is very expensivey"
Cons: "Flight didn't actually take off. Terrible updates regarding flight status."
Pros: "United has become the top low service/high cost Airline. I'm 6'3" and Found myself in a position for hours on end where I could not move my legs. Even with the seat in front of me upright my knees would touch it while my butt was fully up against my seat. Offered is a single drink but not even a lousy bag of pretzels. The entertainment is down to direct tv with a menu that is hard to navigate, earplug connections that need you to hold the plug so it will work and no option to pause or start when you want."
Pros: "NOTHING!!!!!! the worst experience traveling!!!"
Cons: "I did not like the way I was treated AT ALLL!!!! THE UNITED AIRLINES STAFF was HORRIBLE!!!!! NEVER FLYING WITH THEM AGAIN!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and very helpful when my family member became sick on the plane and required a wheelchair. They were very easygoing and accommodating about it."
Cons: "I paid for the tv package both ways, and the movies I had watched were all the same on the way back, which felt like I had wasted money."
Pros: "They tried. Booked on next day out of a different airport. No help with transport or hotel because not their fault."
Cons: "Last flight was deleyed and finally got in the air by 2 and ended up turning around and going back to the airport. Once I got there they told me they didn't have flights for the next 3 days so I was stuck in sanfransico airport by myself after paying over 700 on my ticket."
Pros: "The plane was roomy... The flight attendants were pleasant... The bag checkin was inexpensive... Quality and excellent custoner service. I have traveled many airlines... United is by far my favorite after this experience... Thank you!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 38 minutes. Boarding was not pleasant. Never have a Stewart come by. No entertainment."
Pros: "No problems whatsoever...in fact, we arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "very comfortable ride, no bumps at all."
Cons: "no snacks, didnt have my debit card to pay for the ones for sale"
Pros: "We liked everything we HAD the BEST time!"
