Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Terrible service. It’s a nightmare to fly with. And I have a baby with me that even worse to fly with Eva."
Pros: "crew excellent and very efficient & professional"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The beef dinner made me ill. I had no way to pick my seat in the checkin process. The seat I had (K) has an extra box under the seat in front, so it restricted leg room. There were a total of 37 movies to view, over half of which were non-Hollywood."
Pros: "Everything great"
Pros: "Eva does a great job, nice personnel, good food...probably better than most."
Cons: "More leg room. (My usual complaint,) Premium Economy Very Nice, but at a premium price. I flew once...nice to be offered a glass of Champagne once seated!"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Was not able to board"
Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."
Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Keep doing the same. Cost is not always the most important."
Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"
Pros: "Comfortable and excellent hospitality."
Cons: "Alaska missing my suitcases I could not get them on time made me annoying"
Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice and friendly."
Pros: "There was a decent movie collection to watch."
Cons: "Seats were crammed, not enough width or legroom. Staff not that friendly. Food was alright but nothing to write home about"
Pros: "The seats were OK, solid C. The staff were good B+, and the food (warm veggie was poor D+. The second flight I had raw veggies which was much better, B-."
Cons: "The flight from Taipei to BKK too off 40 minutes late. When we arrived in Thailand it took 20 minutes to get the jetway working. Sad! Timely flights and support services are expected."
Pros: "EVA isn't a discount airline. Being the National Airline of Taiwan and a member of the STAR alliance, you will pay a premium price. I was originally being put in a row right behind the bulkhead with no individual monitor and a seat that was extremely cramped because of the tray table. I knew that I would be able to hang for a 13 hour flight and fortunately, the flight attendant was able to move my wife and I."
Cons: "Only one current movie available. Food was bland and not very appetizing."
Pros: "EVA crew was wonderful and hardworking"
Cons: "Did not like our seats and weight limits for carry on"
Pros: "They very helpfull"
Cons: "The chair was too small"
Pros: "I’ve always had a great flight with them. Crew always very nice and very helpful."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say. Maybe it there was a little more entertainment more movies and tv shows."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight, crew were very professional, food was delicious!"
Cons: "Wish I had known the headphone jack needed and adapter from mono to stereo to use own headphones, but the headphones provided were adequate."
Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight seated in the exit row 45. I was amazed at the on board service. The attendants moved quickly also in a run without the usual frowns that I’ve seen on other airlines."
Cons: "The exit row seat 45C was too narrow. The cup of coffee I had near the end of flight tasted like halve coffee halve tea. Also the checkin line was too slow. There appeared to be more clocks standing around instead of attending the customers trying to check in."
Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"
Pros: "I cannot say how much i enjoyed eva air. The stewardesses were wonderful the people in taipei i dealt with were fantastic."
Cons: "The woman i had to deal with in seattle at the ticketing desk was an absolute nightmare. Im heartbroken i dont remember her name because i would happily name her. Everyone else was perfect. The fella helping me even said "i am so sorry, she is awful and makes me very nervous. I will probably fly asiana from now on just so i do not have to deal with her."
Pros: "Friendliness, comfy seats"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and fast help with passengers needs."
Cons: "On long flights over 6 hours , I find that seats become very uncomfortable . I do stand up and stretch if it is available to do so. After 10 hours of flight travel my legs , back, and neck are very stiff and sore."
Pros: "It's like a well oiled engine, they are very reliable every time I fly with them. The service is good and courteous. The in-flight entertainment is wide ranging. The food is ok. Washroom is clean and fresh."
Cons: "More leg room for economy class. :-)"
Pros: "Reasonable legroom in Economy. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Beer selection is terrible (eww - Heineken) Movie selection is very limited"
Pros: "Flight attendants are very courteous and polite. Try to please everyone. They even clean bathrooms often. Food were great too."
Cons: "I did not like the transfer from Eva to air Macau. Horrible. Long walk. No one there. No lounge to wait 5 hours!! I hate what happened"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and organized. Seats were standard but comfortable. Food lacked salt and flavor at times but the variety was good. Lots you watch and do on the in seat screens so I was never bored."
Cons: "Food needs to come with salt and pepper I the side or soy and hot sauce packets."
Cons: "Person in front of me reclined their seat to far and made it very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice staff good movie selection good flight"
Pros: "The price the food okay. The leg room seemed more in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "Not just your airline but a cultural differences how westerners take how they are talked too"
Pros: "Without fail, every EVA flight crew is professional and kind the perfect combination for long flights."
Cons: "Wasn't able to confirm seats ahead of time. The option to order a vegetarian meal would have been good. Wasn't able to do either of these things through kayak or eva websites and there were no option once on board."
Cons: "The 6 hours layover"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. They were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "I'd work on the in flight food"
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Pros: "I had a ile seat,and wasn't crowded"
Pros: "Crew always pleasant service good. Seats comfortable"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Food made me sick for 5 days. Ruined my first week in Philippines, cost so much money because I couldn't leave my hotel."
Pros: "The service was fantastic, the food was great, the plane was in great shape, overall a great experience - I'd certainly fly again!"
Pros: "relatively more spacious than other airlines"
Cons: "seat itself not comfortable enough, hard seat; food can perhaps be improved"
Pros: "fantastic flight experience. the aircraft was clean neat and comfortable. i loved how they kept the restrooms so clean even through a 13.5 hour flight. I slept through dinner but the western style breakfast was good. The crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "Old 744 plane. One of the 3 remaining 744s. In flight entertainment has low resolution screen (but touch screen though). Crew service was average - below par for an Asian airline. Seats are not comfortable. No drinks were offered after meal service for such a long flight. Please learn from SIA."
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book 3 months ahead, they should put us in the front row seat instead so far to the back seat."
Cons: "The air conditioning"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."
Pros: "Cancelled 30 minute flight up to Vancouver which reaulted in missed flight to Australia. Air Canada the refused to put us on another flight. Went round and round for 5 hours with Air Canada until they finally put us on 3 separate flights getting to our deatination almost 48 hours late.Horrible"
Cons: "Notify passengers if short flight has more than 20% chance of being cancelled. We could have easily driven to Vancouver. If flight is cancelled, then own up to it and put people on next flight."
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Missed the connection in Vancouver in which crew could not be found and were not helpful. Ended up using another airline's counter for help to catch another flight out. Luggage was left in Vancouver. Eva Airline helped with luggage location and shipping to final destination."
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "the crew was very kind with getting those with close connecting flights off first."
Cons: "it was an hour late."
Cons: "Better luggage Service"
Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."
Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "Friendly service is so important to me - and the staff and flight crew at Air Canada met all my expectations. I had the displeasure of flying United on the way to Seattle and I must say the service at Air Canada is far above!"
Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"
Pros: "The seats were fairly comfortable for such a small plane."
Cons: "There was no meal on an international flight of more than four hours."
Cons: "Flight delayed again and again. Waited for hours at the airport until they cancelled the flight."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Cons: "Numerous people had oversize carry on luggage that should have been checked. The passengers like me had smaller than regulation carry on but there did not seem to be room in the overhead compartments."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Cons: "The flight from Vancouver to Seattle on the 31st of July was delayed by two and a half hours, the return flight on August 5 topped that by one hour resulting in a delay of more than three and a half hours and a missed connection flight to Port Hardy. I had to stay in Vancouver over night and my husband had to pick me up in Campbell River. This meant a car drive to and back Campbell River of six hours instead of one hour to Port Hardy."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Pros: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto. The sad part is, vayama and Air Canda (mis-spelled on purpose - deserves even less respect) do not even offer a partial credit if I want to cancel. Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"
Cons: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto.

Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours but keep saying just 50 minutes late"
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "standard short hop flight"
Cons: "Check in was ridiculous. I went through al the on line procedures and was even able to print out my luggage tag at the kiosk... but then had to wait in line for 45 minutes just to drop my luggage! I came more than 2 hours before as instructed, but the agent at the "baggage drop off" (really the all-round agent for both checking in and baggage drop off) did not show up until less than 90 minutes before the flight, and then there was only one to handle what had become a very long line."
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Everything was fine. The plane is pretty spacious."
Cons: "Had to pay for food on an international flight??? One bathroom in the back, and flight attendants were blocking the way to it for at least 70% of the time."
"Delayed flight was communicated in advance but still led to a missed connection"
Pros: "Everyone was nice and helped with any questions I had"
Cons: "Logging into the internet from the iPad"
Pros: "The crew was nice. When I finally arrived in Denver, Marlin in customer service was the only saving grace for United for me. When I asked for options for an earlier flight into Rapid City so I didn’t have to wait 24 hours and miss my visit with my sister, he looked at different hubs (Chicago, Minneapolis) to see if they had any available flights into Rapid, he checked for double bookings, and when he couldn’t find anything, he put me on the standby list for the first flight out in the morning and wrote down the flight information for all of the United flights from Denver for the following day. Marlin provided excellent customer service and was a huge credit to the company."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 3:56 pm and didn’t leave until 7:30 pm. I would estimate at least 15-20 people missed connecting flights because of the delay. According to the United app, the delay initially started in Portland due to mechanical issues, which took over 3 hours. Then, there was a weather delay in San Francisco according to the gate agent - there was a ground hold and no planes were landing or flying out. At some point, I would think another plane would have been an option rather than delaying a flight for this long and disrupting holiday travel for so many people."
Pros: "All the flights were on time."
Cons: "If the flight left on time - I missed my connection"
Pros: "Nice, normal flight."
Cons: "Pilots not there on time, arrived perhaps 30 minutes late, didn’t say why."
Pros: "Crew onboard was fine"
Cons: "Flight delay with min amount of explanation"
Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"
Pros: "Nothing, and I’m a very agreeable person.... Always"
Cons: "Every person employed by United is either overworked until the point of jadedness is issued with their first paycheck, or they get paid in Monopoly money. There were flight delays, and really I was good with that, but when I approached a staff member, he literally said “what do you want?!” Before I even opened my mouth. The phone lines are operated by someone in a foreign country. And after the flight caused me an overnight layover, they offer you a measly discount voucher for a place to stay. I can only hope that someone out there is getting better treatment than the poor people I saw on this flight, or at any united desk I attempted to get help from."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the flight was on time. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "I selected economy comfort in the kayak app, but when I called about my boarding pass, kayak said they only sell basic economy. What did I buy? UAL only sells a limited selection of overpriced food. There is no music and you have to pay to see the flight map."
Cons: "We missed the whole vacation due to United flt. 599 being late into SFO. We missed the Zurich flight by 7 minutes due to a mechanical issue (overhead bin lid would not stay closed.) United customer service was very poor and after 16 hrs. at SO without resolution on flights and schedule, we just came back home. If Siss Air could have waited 10 minutes for 12 or more passengers, we would have been fine. I don't know if United communicated with them or not. This was a disaster!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, and looked newly refurbished"
Cons: "Apparently my android OS is to new to use the in flight entertainment system."
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "Although I arrived a few minutes late, the check-in agent managed to get my bag on the flight. When I missed my flight, the agent quickly got me on another flight (with a competitor airline), with no additional charge."
Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Pros: "They had blankets waiting on our seats for us, which was really nice!"
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable and hardly budged when "reclined". It made for a miserable red eye experience."
Pros: "I know it’s out of the hands of the airline but we were delayed due to weather. Luckily they booked us on another flight but it was the next morning."
Cons: "I know there are clauses saying that United does not have to do anything to accommodate you if it’s bad weather but we did not get anything for our inconvenience. Most airlines will seem to help you with hotels or food and whatnot if you had to be rebooked. We ended up booking a hotel through the Hotel Tonight for a great rate although it’s unrefundable. Turns out we get to the airport and our original connecting flight was severely delayed and we would have made it on to that flight. So either way we were stuck with a loss."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Delay in connecting flight from Seattle to Denver caused us to board our plane to Grand Rapids moments before the doors closed. Had we missed our flight, an unpaid work day would have incurred as we would not have arrived in Grand Rapids until the following afternoon."
Cons: "The seats and headrests in particular were most uncomfortable for a 4+ hour flight. I was most uncomfortable on the flight and ended up with a pain in the neck!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the legroom of Economy Plus. The flight itself was good. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "We arrived late in Denver and had to sit at the gate and wait for the jetway person to arrive and connect the jetway to the plane. I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "I liked the crew once we were on the plane"
Cons: "The plane was full and we were on basic economy. The folks at the gate were rude and unhelpful, at the United kiosk the personnel were openly hostile. Thank goodness the crew treated us with some decency and were very nice."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "The boarding gate attendants were rude and uncaring when we asked them to help us switch pre-assigned seats to ensure our two year old sat with us. While we might have understood better had they been empathetic, they were rude and uncaring and said when you book online you sign a waiver and they can not do anything about this. Wow. This was our flight back. Originally on the way to our destination we had used Delta and that customer service experience was completely different even though that flight was full too. Never flying United again as long as I can avoid it."
Cons: "Delayed getting on our way I think because they were late getting in and had to do all the plane checking. Captain said safety checks. Seat space felt tight and I am short."
Cons: "The fact that I was stranded in Colorado due to weather and they would not refund my ticket even though I had purchased insurance. They wouldn't even give me a credit. Will have to think twice about doing business through KAYAK and United from now on."
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Cons: "My fiancé and I packed a suitcase together and it was 3lbs over the 50lb limit. They refused to let it slide and when we asked how much it would be if we left it they said it would cost us $100 for an oversized bag. We already paid the $25 so it makes no sense for it to cost $100 more. They were completely unreasonable and not helpful. Not to mention the flight was an hour late. Our flight on the way out was completely cancelled all together and no one bothered to tell either of us. Then they rerouted us on completely different flights! We had to basically throw a fit to get on the same flight, which ended up being 8 hours AFTER our original flight was supposed to leave. The entire experience was a disaster and I will never fly united again."
Pros: "My lucky lucky butt"
Cons: "That I wasn't going to make my connecting flight because of delays which meant overnight in airport- they wouldn't put me in a hotel!! But I made my connecting flight.... Because it was suuuuuper delayed- no one's fault. So scratch that poor I'll give it 2 stars..."
Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. Other than that, nothing."
Cons: "Maybe it's because I haven't flown in a few years but it seems that the airlines are packing in as many seats as they can, without regard to the passengers who are shoved into tiny seats for 5+ hours without even being able to stretch their legs. We were in the last row where you can't even lean your seat back but the guy in front of me was just about in my lap the whole flight. Charging for in flight entertainment and meals also seems like the airlines care less for customer satisfaction than the money they can get from passangers. While boarding, we were stopped in first class because the flight attendant was in the aisle getting drinks for first class...Before all the passengers boarded. Also, why is every flight told they get one carry on plus a personal item when that isn't really the case? If the flight is full, apparently there is not enough room for each passanger to have a carry on so people who have delicate items packed in their carry ons have to surrender them and pray their precious vacation purchases aren't smashed when they get their luggage back. Quantity over quality."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times once after boarding, It was five hours late"
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled they never told me , and after I explained to them I bought this ticket two hours ago because my grandmother and uncle were dying and I needed to get there, they lied to me told me I would be on a different flight and still get there at the same time. Well my flight was not the same time it was three hours different and if I made it there like they promised the first time I would have been able to kiss my grandma one last time. She died a hour before I got there. And now I'm fighting with them for a refund."
Pros: "The seats looked new."
Cons: "United had us board and unboard and then board again due to flight delays. United also told us the delay would be only 40 minutes, but I looked at the delay in SFO and it was 2 hours. Eventually United also increased our delay by 30 minute intervals until it was about 2 hours. Once I arrivied in SFO I got a text message notification stating my luggage had been put on an incorrect flight and I would have to return to get my luggage. The attendants at the podium were rude. This was my first terrible flying experience ever."
Pros: "I am 5'2" and this was the least amount of personal space I hVe ever had..."
Cons: "Space issue!"
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Pros: "The people I sat next to."
Cons: "I missed my first flight because the plane left 15 min early. I was at the gate before the plane detached and the guy said I should be on the plane 15 min before and that he wasn't going to stop the plane from going. I had a business meeting that I was trying to get to so him doing this completely ruined my day and purpose for flying and spending $300 on a flight. I have NEVER experienced anything like this. Once on my rescheduled flight the attendant made several comments about the fact that I had a pillow with me. If you don't know someone situation then you should make any comments at all. I had just finished a 5 day drive across country and unfortunately the pillow needed to get home with me. Not a single employee was kind welcoming or helpful. I will never fly with this airline again. I will be letting EVERYONE I speak to know about this experience and I plan on writing reviews wherever I can find."
Cons: "My first flight from SEA was delayed an hour. MULTIPLES passengers missed their connecting flights even though the attendants at the counter claimed we would only be 5 minutes late into our gate and they were WRONG, so people missed their connections because of them."
Pros: "Lots of leg rooms with United"
Cons: "Flight home had a long layover"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Cons: "Your email stated that my departure gate for my connection was B87. It was actually B80. There were no message boards in that area of airport (commuter planes). I missed my flight because of it. Luckily there was a van shuttle that I was able to catch but the ride was 4 hours in the night and cost an additional 80.00. I would like Kayak to reimburse me the 80.00 I had to pay extra. Thank you"
Pros: "United airlines seems no better or worse than most major airlines today."
Cons: "I am fed up with the herding mentality by most airlines. Since when did purchasing an economy seat mean you are not entitled to at least a modicum of comfort on a flight. The legroom provided now is no where near enough for any normal size human. Additionally it's still annoying to pay $25.00 for a single checked bag. I tried United after many years but will be returning to Southwest Airlines - in the long run it's less expensive. I realize nothing will change based on my opinion, regardless, it is more comfortable and dignified to take a Greyhound bus than to fly a major airline these days."
