Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "Food was delicious, consistent timely service and excellent entertainment options onboard. The flight was an hour early!"
Cons: "Seats were tight."
Pros: "The flight felt so short, service was amazing, food was good. Great overall experience."
Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "Good notification re a 30 Minute delay. Obtaining board passes was a breeze and love where I can save the passes to my wallet on my mobile device. Flight crews were helpful, cheerful and professional."
Cons: "With seats being so tight causing an issue when getting in and out of seats."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."

Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."

Cons: "let me think...."
Pros: "Entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Seat very narrow. I'm a 5'5" 135 lb female."

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."

Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."

Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Having partied until 6am for New Years I was grateful for a bed on the flight home! Fantastic crew, planes and overall service!"
Cons: "Wish the arrivals lounge was open for flights arriving in the afternoon."
Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"
Pros: "a very good experience Felt as if the crew cared"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants; good cockpit crew"
Cons: "Delays kept getting longer. On the plane for three hours before takeoff. Seat very uncomfortable -- reclining function didn't work, and no extra space -- and had paid extra for a "comfort" seat."
Pros: "Frequent drinks, attentive stewards/stewardesses, good gluten free meal, comfortable seats smooth flight First checked bag is free."
Cons: "Seats were very slim - armrests were pressing on hips when trying to shift my bottom to change position. The 45 minute delay due to fog. No snacks - like nuts, pretzels, etc"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful."
Cons: "This was actually a Delta flight (code sharing). The airplane was very dirty and the seats were uncomfortably small. I am 5'3" petite lady so I can't imagine how terrible the flight must have been for others. The meal was awful but I don't expect anything these days."
Pros: "Not much to be honest. Which is a shame because I usually love the service from Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "The TV system needed replacing. The controller was broken and the sound was terrible. Made my flight longer than needed."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."

Cons: "The inflight entertainment system kept glitching and needed to be reset a few times"

Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"
Pros: "Crew was solicitous."
Cons: "They didn't seat a couple with a baby together which put me in the unpleasant place of being asked to give up my bulkhead seat for a window seat."
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"

Cons: "shuttle from terminal to plane takes a long time. Flight left late"
Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Pros: "That I was able to sleep a bit on the flight - and that we gained an hour."
Cons: "It left at 6 am. Which means we had a wake up call from the airport hotel at 3:30 am to stand in line with hundreds of others. The Air France app on my phone didn't let me pre- check in."
Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."
Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."

Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"

Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"

Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Cons: "Clean. Courtesy of staff on plane."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Párizs Budapest kb 1 óra késés műszaki hiba miatt. egyébként minden rendbe volt."
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly from boarding to landing. The crew was helpful, kind, & courteous. I would definitely fly Air France again. Online check-in was also easy to follow and complete."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "One of the engine was smoking just as we took off. This should have been checked beforehand that it was working correctly. The pilot missed the first landing, was going too fast and had to turn around. We circled the London eye 3 times. When we were actually landing it was extremely bumpy and on the way down the plane was tilting back and forth a lot. They were going too fast when we landed as well, I have never been in a plane that has landed so poorly, and I have travelled a lot and used many different airlines. It was worse than any budget airline I've been on. As we were driving back to the terminal, the pilot stopped short for some reason. Things were not explained clearly. I will not be flying with airfrance again and will be sure to spread the word of this awful experience."
Pros: "Nice staff, great accommodations"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, very hard to sleep."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Service fair."
Cons: "The food was horrid."
Pros: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."
Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"
Pros: "overall okay"
Cons: "malaysia airlines only allows one check in? didnt give any headphones for tv"
Cons: "Nowhere on my finnair reservariondid it say this flight was operated by American. I kept logging into finnair and it was telling me I had no reservation. Very frustrating!"
Pros: "Plenty empty seats, so I had enough room. Arrival earlier than scheduled, crew provided good service"
Cons: "Food (I had pasta)was lousy, the little TV screen was EXTREMELY unresponsive, Most of the time it would not work - unable to make selections. Seat 19C"
Pros: "My business class flight"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Dame coments"
Cons: "Same coments"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Cons: "Tight conditions, lousy movies& music, video system did not work well, 1 hour wait on runway"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "People in front of us were reclining the entire time and our seats right behind them were tight. Did not like having to pay extra for seats"
Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Could not get seats together with my husband"
Cons: "3 hour delay on international flight from JFK made for a very long day."
Pros: "In general it was fine"
Cons: "The flight was not cheap and when I went to select my seat, it revealed that to not sit in the middle row would cost me an extra $60 each way. A bit much on the misc charges folks."
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Pros: "Reasonable , competitive airfare."
Cons: "Impersonal service of attendants"
Pros: "Good movie selections. Prompt clean up service after the meals"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants (not all) were quite rude and inpatient. My husband and I had ordered vegetarian meals and at the start of the meal that asked us our names and apparently the wrong names were on the meals so we didnt get it. But when the cart came down with the choices we told them what happened and they got upset and said we denied the vegetarian meal. Plain crazyness."
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and we had no issues during the flight. Seating issue (below) was fixed by agent (although we only were allowed to interact with a human because the self check-in didn't work."
Cons: "During online check-in we were seated separately, but given the option to remedy this for a mere $200. I remember a time not long ago when sitting together was a given, now, like all things, it is a privilege for those with means."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats reclined but when they did the bottom of the seat moved forward creating even less leg room. For a guy that is 6' tall it made it nearly impossible to sleep on the over night flight. The head rest also did not raise over my shoulder height which added to the lack of sleep"
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Pros: "The upgrade to main cabin extra was worth the cost. Extra leg room, entertainment options, and room to breathe when the passenger in cent leans all the way back made a long flight more than bearable. The crew handled themselves and us very well."
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Cons: "Flight was oversold, was bumped to the next flight."
Cons: "Tiny seats in Economy, BA on the way to New York was so much better! Faulty seat which wouldn't recline properly and faulty entertainment system!! Having to pay extra for seat choice and then getting a tiny with no leg space or side space, again the BA plane on the way out was much better"
Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"
Pros: "Went business class and was truly spoiled. Did an evening flight. The seat laid down to a flat bed. Boses headsets, facial refresher packages were provided. The food was wonderful and the wine was above average. A must experience!"
Pros: "Headphones provided. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Exhausting overseas flight. Seats barely recline, impossible to get any sleep. The system was broken so no wifi, movies, maps etc. Power was intermittent so it was difficult to charge devices."
Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Cons: "Don't like the habit of having the staff reserve the last 3 rows of the airplane for personal usage when there are no other spare seats on the plane. Then we were lied to by the attendants that they did this to balance the weight across the aircraft. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable to begin with and mine had a broken seat bag making things worse. All in all a miserable flight to Europe for my kids and me."
Pros: "The movie screen was not working but fortunately no one was sitting next to me so I could move over a seat."
Cons: "I would have liked a second cup of coffee as the coffee was better than most airplane coffee. No one appeared with refills, however."
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
Pros: "The entertainment and cleanliness of the flight."
Cons: "The delay and the lack of care for connecting flights"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the plane had lots of empty seats"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was awful"
Pros: "Slightly more leg room on premium economy"
Cons: "Terrible entertainment options. Seats were old. Luftanza is far far better for premium economy. On this flight it was hard to determine the difference between economy and premium economy"
Cons: "Crew members were a bit cold and very show in responding. Not what you would expect in Business class"
Pros: "Flat bed was narrow but comfortable. Attendants plentiful & attentive."
Cons: "I'm not sure what makes this business class special "Polaris" . Unlike planes I often take to Asia, there was no privacy and especially no room to put "stuff" without putting seat up, unbuckling, etc. I realize that I should have paid attention to the type of plane. Boarding was chaotic; could not distinguish my boarding line. PA system unusually bad; could not hear or understand any of Capt's announcements."
Pros: "Free food and drinks"
Pros: "8 hour international flight and no leg room but worse was no entertainment... a pathetically small back of seat screen with very limited programming supplemented with access via your iPad... should have been great but no access at all on both legs as you access via unitedwifi which is just not strong enough. Great staff and the rest of the flight was fine"
Pros: "Helpful gate staff"
Cons: "Frozen croissant for breakfast. Non-functioning entertainment centre. Seats recline too much. Passenger in front leant back as far as he could (without courtesy of request or apology), making my flight most uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Pros: "When the flight was delayed (due to maintenance issues) it was convey to us immediately n after 2nd announcement; we were escorted to Check-In counter to rebook for the next flight out...all within an hour."
Cons: "TV screen were too tiny perhaps due to age of plane?!"
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours, causing me to miss my connection flight. Had to pay extra $460 to purchase next available flight which delayed my arrival time 6 hours! Horrible experience !"
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."
Pros: "Good coverage help at ticket kiosks. Flight crew and attendants were attentive during flight in the area of the plane I observed. Good use of lemon sorbet to finish off dinner."
Cons: "An hour Delay in getting plane ready for boarding this was not due to any weather issue that could be observed. Pasta did not look appetizing and appeared too large of pasta and too much cheese to break into mouthfuls with a fork easily.There was a small amount of lettuce without a dressing and some cooked quinoa like grain next it I did not understand what the cooks were trying to do with. Seat is uncomfortable for tall passengers such as myself at 6'5". Important to bring neck support. I had brought one but it was not stiff enough to offer good support. It also would have been a nice touch for writing implements of one sort or another to have been passed out to complete the board card that needed to be filled when entering U.K."
Pros: "Crew was nice. The plane had good amentites and was clean ."
Cons: "small video monitor"
Pros: "I had the worst experience."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled in Munich and I was rerouted to Rome, Italy. In Italy they didn't find my ticket and I was made to wait an extra 4 hours. My carry-on bag was taken in London, as there was not enough room on the fight to Munich, but then when I finally got to Cairo, one day after I was supposed to arrive, both bags were lost and I stayed one week without anything. I missed an entire day of my vacation because of the cancellation and confusion in Rome. I am a Gold Star Alliance member and this was the WORST flight in I have ever taken in my LIFE!"
Pros: "slightly more leg room than a domestic flight"
Cons: "pasta dish was cold and didn't taste too good, video was not working properly (color display issue)"
Cons: "We could not check in on line and there was no Austrian Air agent at SFO (San Francisco). Ultimately needed to check in at United but their agents were uncertain about our tickets. Typical United service - cranky flight attendants, poor food - but we arrived on time and in one piece."
Cons: "NO INTERNET!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was loud man behind me (laughed INCREDIBLY loud) The crew knew him so they did not say anything to him."
Cons: "The Audio Visual was inoperative!!"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible plane, old and not comfortable at all. Little entertainment to choose from and the technology on the plane was horrible. No healthy food options, won't fly United internationally again"
Pros: "Fact easy boarding Helpful crew Really good food"
Cons: "No negatives"
Cons: "My connection was clear across the airport, it was quite the trek when the second flight was already boarding"
Pros: "The airport location was convenient."
Cons: "Flight delays up to 11hrs. Poor food. Poor flight crew hospitality."
Cons: "I was dreamy disappointed when I purchase the ticket I thought I was going on luthhansa Airlines instead, i was on United Airlines which had a old 747 back in the 1990's it was dirty and uncomfortable. When I made the booking on kayka there was no indication that United Airlines was going to be substitute Airline"
Pros: "Food was ok - but served way too hot. Crew was pleasant and the entertainment was a decent selection."
Cons: "When we arrived, we were told we weren't actually taking Austrian airlines and should have been on united - which was at a different terminal. Then checking in was a disaster - neither the Austrian app or united app would allow me to checkin. Then the seats we had selected initially weren't given to us at checkin so we had to upgrade our seats to sit together. And then, in our more expensive seats - we froze. We were underneath the AC and the crew said they had no extra blankets."
Pros: "The worst part of my experience was the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "They were late."
Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Pros: "Polaris is a great product"
Cons: "Crew still stuck in their old ways and don't deliver personal service, just wait your turn trolley service - when they spend most of the time chatting in the galley!!"
Cons: "HUGE DELAY. MISSED CONNECTION. CONSTANT UNCERTAINTY"
Pros: "Great movie selection and quantities of meals/snacks."
Pros: "Vegetarian meal good taste."
Cons: "Hour delay by "catering", missed connect at LHR. (United's booking too tight also). TV screen needed "reboot", flight announcements piercingly loud. Requested gluten free meal not provided."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Was happy to have the extra leg room, the food and entertainment were decent,"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I had to pay extra for an exit row or for an isle seat. Seat arm rest couldn't be raised."
Pros: "It was a old plane , entertainment was horrible . There was no choice of movies and other channels . For a flight this long they should have thought about this"
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours and 15 minutes that cause me to lose my bus and forced me to wait in the airport for 6 hours. Very bad experience"
Pros: "Easy boarding (almost last to board) Decent enough meals. Hit and miss. Excellent breakfast, terrible sandwich, nice main meal. Crew were pretty helpful and pleasant. Comfortable. Got lucky, with 1 full spare seat. Seats seemed roomier anyway, standard economy, possibly due thinner seats (no screens)"
Cons: "Streaming on free wifi of free movies wasn't working on my PC. Tried all their tips and options. This is a big drawback with letting customers use their own devices. Can get complicated. Surprised that Adobe Flash + DRM software is required. They're supposed to be downloadable from the inflight system, but that wasn't working. Crew don't have expertise to deal with this (wasn't expecting them to). Movie selection looked decent enough."
Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front. The overhead bins were so small that they couldn't fit carry ons efficiently so everyone was scrambling for space, delaying the boarding process & heightening frustration & stress. Boarding process was also inefficient causing delays."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Pros: "Luftansa ... never saw them. I ended up on a Unoted Airlines flight. My deat changes from window to middle seat in the middle of the plane. Will not fly United again. Personnel were noce ... but I resent the switch up in carriets."
