Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."
Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."
Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. We got a free dinner with wine and free breakfast. Everyone got pillows and blankets."
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."

Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous! No one bumped my arms!"
Cons: "They didn’t let us know why our flight was one hour late,"
Pros: "My flight was delayed due to bad weather but they offered complimentary drink service at the airport and I really appreciated it. I would like to fly with Porter Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and the terminal in Toronto was nice. The food and drink service was more than I expected, and the checkin agents and terminal staff before security were helpful."
Cons: "My flight arriving into Toronto was cancelled and then my rebooked flight was delayed. While checkin staff were polite, gate staff were not overly helpful and no food vouchers were offered for rebooked passengers. On my return from YTZ to EWR, I received 6 delays to my flight but staff in the airport provided no information regarding the cause of the delay and did not provide updates on the flight in a timely manner. By the time my flight was delayed a 5th time, I was stuck in the terminal. Free drinks and snacks were available, but I had to pay for a sandwich during my 3 hour wait. I have received only a C$100 travel voucher. Needless to say I won't be using it."
Pros: "Snacks and drink were provided, even on a short trip"
Cons: "I had a window seat, and the side protrudes towards the bottom amongst the inside, so I had less space on my window side"
Pros: "Legroom and snacks were good."

Cons: "When I got to Toronto I was directed to the wrong lounge for a while before I asked and was redirected to the correct lounge"
Pros: "Good service by Genevieve, Sean, Chris, Kevin. Thanks."
Cons: "The gates and waiting areas are like kennels. No order. No information on the flight board. Just don’t fly it. Don’t do it. Delayed flights. No information or confusing information from various crew. Don’t fly this airline. Unless you have days to kill and aren’t in a rush to go somewhere or get home. It is really awful."
Cons: "Flight was delayes"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed twice. No compensation for delays that resulted in hotel cancellations."
Pros: "as above"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor I will never be flying .Porter Airlines again My flight was cancel I sat at the airport for 8 hours before I could get on a flight. Mind you this was after being rebooked for the next day with no notification. The security agents are the one who inform me of the cancellation. NOT PORTER ."
Cons: "Crew member was argumentative and not helpful"
Cons: "They delayed my flight many times and finally I gave up."
Cons: "Are flight was delayed 1 hr. Due to a issue at Newark, this would of been ok, except the gate manager announced it was due to low cloud ceiling and visiability. I'd think you would understand any one look to see the status of flights in Newark on their phone and see visibility was a few broken and visibility 10. So lying only puts distrust in paasangeners!"
Cons: "Air hostess were mean even with a empty plane. It was dirty and no one cleaned it."
Pros: "Best service"
Pros: "The plane got me to where I needed to go. The crew was nice. Complimentary snacks/coffee in the waiting area is cool."
Cons: "I knew I was running late for boarding so I had to reschedule tickets to a later flight. I was very upset over having to pay a $350 change fee so I could board a plane an hour later that was less than half full. If Porter had any decent customer service, they would've been happy to put me on another plane like any other airline with no fee."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "At least on time."
Cons: "Air craft was so old."
Pros: "I arrived for my flight earlier than expected both ways and both times I was bumped up to earlier flights with no charge. I love that there isn't a charge for carry-on luggage and even checked luggage is very reasonably priced. Flight staff was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just what I hope for in a flight."
Cons: "Uhhhhh see above. Horrible horrible airline!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick. I appreciated that the flight didn't take off until a lot of us were on the plane because the outside traffic delayed a lot of us from gettin there on time."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude. He was very demanding, wanted things done at his pace. And his sarcastic tone when asking passengers to do things like move their bags, or take out headphones to listen to the safety procedures; etc. were very unnappreciated. I've also never been tapped on the shoulder by a flight attendant and asked to take my headphones out to hear safety procedures."
Pros: "Great waiting area"
Cons: "No good food options on layover in Toronto City"
Pros: "Easy flight out of Bully Bishop. Love the terminal service in Toronto. Free espresso, drinks, and snacks! On flight service in wonderful! Nice attendants, free wine, cozy chairs."

Pros: "The experience was great overall. The aircraft are modern and the crew are congenial. There are advantages to riding in such small aircraft, as boarding and deplaning are quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over twenty minutes and the gate changed."
Pros: "Timeliness and free drink and snack on plane and at airport. Our flight had some tech problem with plane and it was quickly dealt with. We had delay, but communication was good and delay was just and hour and half"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I'm a tall man and I found the seats small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Though they have a lounge it was not in good shape. Trash cans overflowing, seat cushions filthy. I appreciate that they provide food for economy passengers in the lounge but, if you provide good in plastic containers you need someone to empty the trash-at the least."
Pros: "One of the most pleasant flights I ever had!"
Pros: "Comfortable experience. Porter Airport offered great city views of Toronto."
Pros: "I liked that there were free snack in the lounge and wine on the plane. The ticket agent was very helpful when the customer service phone line failed terrible. She saved me from writing in a scathing letter on how terrible my experience with customer service."
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was delayed for 3 hours because of rain that wasn't in the area of where I was or going. FOR BOTH OF MY FLIGHTS! I didn't like how I was offered a $50 voucher for being diverted to Hamilton after all that time, which I was originally told that was good for a year and then found out it is only good for 6 months and non-transferable. Now I have a voucher I'm not gonna use in the specified time frame nor gan I give it to someone who frequents the airline."
Pros: "Free drink"
Cons: "Old dirty plane, very noisy, poorly maintained, late"
Pros: "Overall it was great"
Pros: "The flight went really well. Thanks for the good service."
Cons: "2 1\2 hours late on an 1 1/2 flight"
Pros: "Thank god, I found a gentleman at a different counter to help me. The lady at the counter said "not my problem as I did not cancel your flight, its the airline" !!!! Totally unprofessional"
Cons: "I booked an emergency ticket in the morning for a late flight to get in to newark for my sister's surgery the next day. The flight got cancelled, no email sent to me even though service counter people kept saying that they did. I am at the airport in a long line with only one counter open and the rep not even bothering to help me. I am a 60 year old from another country and have knee problems. Thankfully someone took mercy on me and helped me out to catch another flight so I could leave. Its unfortunate that flight cancellations happen in such a way without making sure the passengers are all contacted and alternatives made for them. it is also unfortunate the airport only does porter airlines and there are no other flights that can be made available when flights get cancelled"
Pros: "Terra chips friendly cabin attendants Lounge at Toronto Island (but way too crowded, no place to sit)"
Cons: "Liked it all."
Pros: "Free snacks, drinks."
Cons: "Nearly 2 hour delay :("
Pros: "Service was very good. Air hostess was courteous"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Our takeoff was delayed 3.5 hours because the plane was 'too warm to board.' This meant that I was stranded in Billy Bishop airport, which is a very small airport without much to do, while waiting for updates. Updates typically consisted of, "We should be able to board in about 10-15 minutes once the plane cools down." and then we would wait another hour for an update. We were offered a $50 food voucher for the small cafe 5 minutes before the cafe closed up shop. We were also offered a $50 voucher on Porter Airlines, which is an airline I have never flown before and don't intend to fly again."
Pros: "Speed and chips"
Cons: "Newark airport...."
Pros: "Great plane B 787"
Cons: "Paid online for food and most choices gone Overpriced"

Pros: "The flight attendants were not kind to the customers and treated us like they were doing us a favor by working on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants at one time actually were talking about other passengers, who happened to be of Chinese descent like they weren't even there. Like they did not understand English. Just rude"
Pros: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Cons: "flight was too bumpy"
Pros: "I loved everything!"
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Cons: "Entertainment options are old. Food in unaccomodating for Vegetarians."
Cons: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."

Cons: "first flight scheduled april 20 at 12:05pm cancelled. second flight for 4:15pm to laguardia cancelled. excuses for cancellation were given but not to our satisfaction. as a result we missed a good portion of the wedding we attended in new jersey"
Cons: "Missed connection because of their computer issues. The hotel they arranged for us was a 30minute drive from airport. We passed 50 hotel alternatives on the way. Nobody greeted us at the gate to explain our options. My luggage never arrived"
Pros: "Short trip, nothing too much to complain about or sing about."
Cons: "the entertainment system not functioning tjhat well."
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"

Pros: "Overall everything was good, i liked the customer service of the crew. Boarding was on time. Everything went smooth. Overall I was very happy according to the price i paid for the Tickets. Customer, Tanmay Bhatt"

Pros: "The crew handled things well in spite of some turbulence closer to EWR. Thanks for a smooth and easy ride into NYC/NJ."
Pros: "wonderful plane"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Pros: "organized boarding; timely departure and landing; baggage swifly appeared at carosel; younger members of the crew were great"
Cons: "Most senor member of the crew on the flight [female/blond] was flat out rude and clearly should not be interfacing with clients on flights."

Pros: "Short flight, crew is friendly, and easy boarding process."
Cons: "I find the Air Canada flights between Toronto and Newark are frequently delayed."
Cons: "it was delayed for 1 hour"
Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Cons: "No TV service on an 11 hour flight. Really? It's 2016 can we get Air Canada into this decade please."
Pros: "Air Canada has good service. Our flight was delayed and I only got one announcement. I think next time it should be more."
Pros: "Boarding of children at the beginning of boarding operations. Double thumbs up."
Cons: "At 2 hours into the flight I was most of the way through a movie. The crew then announced that some passengers were unable to view the entertainment system so they were resetting the entire system. Crew said passengers would be able to resume watching entertainment at the point they left off. Needless to say this was not the case. The entertainment system never got reset properly and did not function for the rest of the 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "the flight actually went"
Cons: "our gate was switched and then there were no updates until after the original boarding time passed"
Pros: "Flight took 1 hour instead of the scheduled 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late to board and then another hour late to actually take off."
Cons: "Plane edges were rather dirty with lots of debris. A little gross."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Pros: "Got on flight"
Cons: "Got boarding pass but no signs to differentiate Air Canada counters (US-bound, domestic, international). Went to wrong counter and had to run to right one Booked flight. When I checked bag, I got a standby with hope that I could get on flight. Fortunately, I was able to make it. If I had connecting flights, it would have been a nightmare Same boring old movies and TV - 2 broke girls episodes. Just drink, nothing else for morning flight. Something to eat? It is an international (Can-US) flight Slow unloading of luggage"
Cons: "The airport crew lacked professionalism & courtesy when relaying information on the flight being delayed. Bad attitude from airport crew & lack of communication with delayed flight."
Pros: "The trip was amazing, for the extremely prompt and organized Japan crew boarding to the great and smooth flying despite the long time it took to get to Torinto"
Cons: "The food onboard could use an improvement, it felt very poor and flavorless. The Toronto immigration processing was cumbersome and time consuming, took us about an hour plus to clear customs which left us just enough time to make it to the gate for our connection flight to EWR. The process could be improved to allow for us to decompress enough to allow for a more relaxed connection flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"
Cons: "I found the seats quite uncomfortable which is unusual for me as I don't have back or neck issues. Once I was able to position the seat after take-off the comfort was improved."
Pros: "Flight attendants did not wake me up!"
Pros: "Helpful friendly staff. flight on time."
Cons: "I booked with Airmiles and only had 1 flight time to choose from. Then when I changed my flight time I had to pay double what it would normally have cost me had I booked and paid for my flight instead of using Airmiles. Why are there not more flight times to choose from in the first place when booking through Airmiles?"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay and almost miss my connection flight... and its not the first time with Air Canada"
Cons: "When did Air Canada stop providing meals on international flights? It was my first time flying in/out of Newark on Air Canada and was surprised I had to purchase food on an international flight. Chicken noodle soup in a cup was $3, was about the only thing that looked reasonable on the menu."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and leg room was much better on this flight."
Cons: "Being delayed for several hours without an explanation was very disappointing and frustrating. I was waiting at airport for 6hrs! Flight staff was not overly friendly either."
Pros: "Like the free snacks while we waited 2 hours to board."
Cons: "Did not like waiting 2 hours to board."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - courteous/aware/friendly. The flight, although 2 hours delayed (9;20pm scheduled departure) was pleasant and smooth. Also, the de-boarding process was surprisingly quick."
Cons: "A 2 hour delay at 9:20pm at night is unfortunate yet frustrating experience, especially when we moved our flight up due to a travel warning for EWR (ironically enough, our originally scheduled flight (1922 MCO-EWR). I'm giving an overall OK (instead of good) due to the fact that there were no snacks (although I did not want anything, it didn't go unnoticed) and although there was free inflight entertainment for personal devices, I feel the passengers should have been given free internet access - in my opinion, it would have been the appropriate thing to do. In any case, this experience doesn't change my positive opinion of United."
Cons: "Made me take off sweater out of my bag cause my bag was 0.5 lbs over weight."
Pros: "United hires good people. Flight was comfortable and on-time."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No leg room."
Cons: "Having a 3,5 hour delay."
Pros: "Easy quick boarding - attendants seemed to watch and keep the misc items from going into the overhead."
Cons: "Being woken up to see if I wanted water or food"
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Cons: "Entertainment Did not work properly."
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"
Cons: "Perhaps the people who have a tight connection could be allowed off of the plane first. I only had a half hour layover so by the time I got to the proper gate, I had missed my flight and had to wait eight hours for the next flight ."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Dreadful flight and landing. No TVs and couldn't order veg meal for connecting long haul flight, check in staff were efficient at least."
Cons: "The landing was erratic and very bumpy"
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "The international flights were fine."
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"
Pros: "The crew was great but the flight was delayed for two hours"
Cons: "The flight being delayed and comfort"
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Pros: "Nothing good at all"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled, so I can't say how the flight was. However, I can say that in my 20 years of travel, this was by far the worst, most stressful experience I have ever had. I was placed on 2 other flights with 2 other airlines and wasn't notified until AFTER I was already checking in with another airline (this is also after calling the airlines regarding the cancellation, several hours before heading to the airport). Worst experience. Do not recommend."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, professional & kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues so I only had 40 min layover to get to my next gate. Also when we arrived we were on the ground for a long time before we could pull up to gate to unload. I have a 3 yr old & 5 yr old & had to run to make it. We made it but luggage didn't. My first luggage was delivered quickly, the 2nd luggage arrived 3 days after we arrived home."
Pros: "Seating is so close you can count the hairs on the passenger in front of you. Tray is too close to you and uncomfortable to even eat or drink anything. Overseas and international seating needs to be larger than short domestic flights."
Cons: "Seating was terribly close, too close for comfort."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times causing me to have to literally run across airport to catch international connecting flight. Gate crew did very little to assist me in securing an alternate flight. On board crew did little to assist me in finding out information and getting me off the plane quickly to get to my connecting flight. Overall they showed little empathy and customer service."
Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."
Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
Cons: "My tv wasn't working which made it boring for a 6 hour flight and flight delayed"
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Pros: "Plane was amazing. Crew great."
Cons: "Portion of food was extremely small.music selection could be more up to date."
Pros: "Smooth flight until very last minute. Landing was rough, very abrupt descent."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "It was behind schedule. Cut it very close on making my connection to Dublin."
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Luggage got stuck in plane, 1 1/2 hour wait at carrousel! Newark sucks to get out, took two atemps with 2 GPS and 2 people trying to decifer NJ's crappy road signs!"
Pros: "The boarding process got people on the plane quickly."
Cons: "None of the entertainment units worked in my entire section, about 19 rows all together. I was not able to access the light or call function. These should be separated from the media units and should be functional at all times regardless of technical issues. Food choices were interesting. The barley salad was quite strange. I would take that off the menu, if possible. It was quite inedible. Flavor profile was not good."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Pros: "Very satisfied."
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight with a window seat which I prefer. Service was extremely good from checkin to boarding to the onboard crew who looked after us well the whole flight. I actually thought all the food options were very tasty and portions acceptable. We even got in half an hour earlier which was a bonus."
Cons: "The trip to Dublin two weeks or so before was not as comfortable as I was assigned a seat in the very last row on the aisle which meant that even if I was able to fall asleep, I would have been jostled repeatedly by people using the lavatories in the back of the plane. Also those seats do not fully recline and if they are going to charge more for other seats in the plane, then they should be charging less for those seats which offer less space and on the aisles, unintended bumping by fellow passengers walking through tight aisles."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and snacks were average"
Cons: "The seat back was very uncomfortable but this was a short flight with a small plane. Not terrible but below average."
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "I've only used United a handful of times between London and New York. They've been okay. The worst flight was on an older plane that felt like it'd been built in 1975, and the entertainment was rubbish. The staff however are always pleasant and accommodating. Their service was just as good on my heavily delayed return flight, and managed to handle the tired, short fused customers with aplomb. Hats off to them."
Cons: "My return flight from EWR to LHR was delayed by 4.5hours. Initially it was a 20minute delay; then we boarded the plane, only to sit still for an hour due to technical difficulties. Then we were delayed by another 30 minutes. Then we were asked to leave the plane as a replacement jet was required. It was meant to take 15 minutes, when it actually took at least 1.5 hours. It was a 6.10pm flight, and we boarded the new plane at 9.30pm. We eventually jetted off at 10.30pm. I'de received 10 text messages stating each each rescheduled/delayed departure time. Sadly, it's the worst flight I've ever had. I ended up 3.5 hours late for work, missed an important business meeting. Shame."
