South Korea has restricted the entry of all travelers who have been in the Hubei Province of China in the past 14 days. Chinese nationals with passports issued in the Hubei Province are also not allowed to enter the country. Korean visas issued by the Wuhan Consulate in the Hubei Province are invalidated. Nationals of China and travelers arriving from China must have visas to transit through South Korea.
Travelers arriving from China with a diplomatic, consular, official, service or special passport or who are nationals of Albania, Andorra, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Ireland, South Korea, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Nicaragua, Palau, San Marino, Slovenia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Vatican City and Venezuela may still transit through South Korea without a visa.
South Korea has suspended visa exemptions for nationals of Japan, passengers with Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao passports.
Short-term visas (type C-1 and C-3) issued on or before April 5 are invalidated. Visa exemptions for 90 nationalities with normal passport are temporarily suspended, except for airline crew or passengers with an APEC Business Travel Card. Travelers with a visa on an expired passport must present a printed "Visa Grant Notice" and the expired passport to the immigration upon arrival.
Until January 7, direct flights from the UK are temporarily suspended.
Foreign nationals residing in South Korea on most types of long-term visa will need to apply for a re-entry permit at a local immigration office or at the airport before undertaking any travel out of South Korea. Those traveling with a re-entry permit will also be required to have a medical examination no earlier than 48 hours before they plan to return to South Korea, and to obtain a medical certificate in English or Korean demonstrating COVID-19 negative status.
All foreign travelers who have been in Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Philippines or Uzbekistan in the past 14 days must have a medical certificate with a negative Coronavirus (COVID-19) PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before arrival to enter South Korea.
From January 8, all foreign travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours of their departure. Airlines will not board passengers without this negative PCR test result. Arriving passengers must submit the PCR test result on an original form issued by the testing center in the country of origin (in the English or Korean language) to quarantine authorities. Authorities will deny entry to individuals who do not fulfill this requirement. Policies regarding testing upon arrival and quarantine are unchanged by this announcement.
Merchant seamen with a visa must have a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before departure. The certificate must be in English and the passengers must have two copies of the certificate.
All flights must arrive at Incheon International Airport (ICN) between 5:00 am and 8:00 pm.
From December 10, short-term visitors must provide passport information to lodging facility owners, who must forward it to the Ministry of Justice. Failure to comply could result in a fine of 500,000 won (approximately $500). More information is available on hikorea.go.kr
All arriving passengers are required to download and respond to daily questions via a Self-Diagnosis Mobile App for 14 days.
Foreign travelers on short-term travel are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine at a government-designated facility, at their own expense. The nightly cost at these facilities could range from $100 to $150 USD per night (approximately $1,400-$2,100 USD total). Travelers that fall into this category will be required to sign a release form agreeing to these conditions prior to boarding a plane. Travelers who refuse to sign the form will be denied boarding. In some cases, Korean authorities have permitted immediate blood relatives or spouses of long-term residents to self-quarantine at their family’s home. For this, travelers would need to provide proof of relationship (e.g., marriage or birth certificate), and should understand that Korean immigration officials have the final authority to approve quarantine arrangements.
Travelers who are long-term or residential visa holders are required to self-quarantine at their own residences and must undergo a COVID test within 3 days. All travelers who exhibit symptoms will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing on arrival at the airport and may be subject to additional procedures.
Chinese nationals who are traveling on business under the Fast Lane program and their family members are exempt from the quarantine requirements; however, they must self-monitor their health conditions for at least 14 days before departure and must hold a medical certification of a negative COVID-19 testing result issued within 72 hours before departure. They will receive an additional test upon arrival, after which they must stay at a designated quarantine facility for up to 1-2 days until receiving the result. Once receiving a negative test result, they will be allowed to end their quarantine.
Nationals of Egypt, Mongolia, Russia, Sudan, Thailand and Yemen are restricted from transiting through South Korea on their way to or from those countries.
Most travelers transiting through Korean airports (who do not pass through immigration) have no quarantine requirement for stays less than 24 hours. However, transit passengers may need to undergo temperature checks or fill out health questionnaires. Transit passengers should confirm entry requirements at their onward destination. Symptomatic individuals will be subject to a COVID-19 test and hospitalization if found positive. Passengers who do not show symptoms and/or test negative may continue their journey. Please note, there are no COVID testing facilities available in airport transit areas.
Travelers should confirm with the airline(s) before departure that their bags have been checked through to their final destination (as transit passengers are not able to collect and re-check in baggage on arrival in Incheon Airport).

Pros: "Great service, clean cabin, tons of movies. Crews eager to care for passengers."
Cons: "Due to bad weather and flooding, I could not get to the airport for my flight. I called Just Fly and they said there was nothing they could do. I had to pay an extra $350 to get my flight rescheduled. I thought that due to bad weather, customers can get flight rescheduled at no extra cost? As soon as I rebooked my flight, both airport in Houston closed anyways. So is this still my fault and did I have to still pay an extra $350??"
Pros: "I was not expecting that it exceeded my expectations, it was better than my favorite airline. First time I ever eat all the food they served in an airline. The crew were excellent, they're always there- I don't know if they ever rested throughout the duration of the flight! Not to mention, they are all friendly."

Cons: "pet boarding --- there was a puppy on board who cried & cried. I am a dog lover. Please be mindful that, this flight from JFK, NY, to Seoul, Korea, was 13+ hours. I am very aware about the stress created upon pets from air travels. Yet, it is upon each pet owners to decide which pet might travel on board. This particular pet owner chose to let his/her pet cry out pet's stress + discomfort throughout the flight and annoy all passengers. Pet owner took no action, for example, gave no sedative to the pet or hold the pet to provide comfort or safety. I personally find such behavior irresponsible."

Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Cons: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"
Pros: "Any time dining, excellent food offering, excellent drink offering, and excellent service. Unbeatable!"

Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."
Cons: "Out of Vegetarian food. As per them it was because ticket was booked less than 24 hrs"
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."
Pros: "Everything is good thank you so mach !!!!"
Pros: "attentive crew food was good"
Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"
Pros: "The service was okay"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service"
Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Pros: "Except turbulences everything was ok and nice .."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Good flight"
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."

Pros: "Very nice service"
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Pros: "The crew did a great job and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because one or more of the crew were late. I would suggest that when you board a large flight, start from the rear of the plane, not the front. Having to go past everyone to get to your seat is time consuming and somewhat stressful. The food was super gross. The so called beef bulgogi was not appetizing at all. For breakfast, the food was disgusting."
Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"
Pros: "The best"
Cons: "Being given seats at the gate. I like to choose my seat."
Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."
Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Pros: "The crew was really nice! They were very energetic!"
Cons: "I am not blaming the airline, but the Salt Lake Airport. Everything was slow and everything was delayed! The airport staff was friendly, but airport management needs be prepared and perform better. Compared to other airport, there was not that many people flying, and still there processing issues."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "More comfortable seats!!!"
Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Entertainment worked."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses was a miserable crank."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"
Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Baggage was at carousel before we were, a first."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "I liked that military boarded first."
Cons: "I think disabled US Veterans should board with active duty and retired military"
Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."
Pros: "direct flight from IND to CDG!"
Pros: "It was very quick! Great service."
Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Pros: "Good flight. Organized. Friendly flight attendants. I like Delta."
Cons: "Paid for priority seats, but weren't offered the option for my two free drinks due to the flight being short distance."
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Friendly, professional"
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome. The desk people were unfriendly, unhelpful. Could not give us a seat assignment until the very end of the boarding process. Not a very friendly experience. I felt very ripped off"
Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"
Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."
Pros: "Seats and crew were fabulous and the flight itself was very smooth ."
Cons: "This particular plane had no entertainment system whatsoever, big disappointment."
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Pros: "I was able to get a gluten free snack"
Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Pilot and crew were extremely friendly, though it annoyed me how I was seated in the rear when I only had 20 minutes to get to my connecting flight."
Cons: "The coffee tasted altogether horrid--only saving grace was the Biscoff, but even that had its limits."
Pros: "Requested a special meal over the phone when I checked in i.e. 24 hours before talk off, customer support confirmed my request but the crew told me that they had not received anything as such....crew didn't even bothered to offer any alternative. I was fine, didn't have any reservations but my wife and kid went starving all the way remember it was a 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Cons: "This is my third flight this year with Delta and every time we wait for the "crew" to get off from another flight. And as soon as they get there we can board. It's getting very annoying. Fix it."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Pros: "The crew was great on both Korean air and Delta. Very helpful and polite, with several going the extra mile"
Cons: "I'm tall, so I'd like bigger seats, but I guess that can't be helped much without a price increase"

Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all (had it connected but it was too slow)"
Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."
Pros: "Crew was professional"
Cons: "Being delayed 2.5 hrs"
Pros: "The crew was great throughout the 12 hour flight, the entertainment was varied as always, the flight time for departure and arrival was almost spot on."
Cons: "Due to the fact that I didn’t know my gate number and that my bags were going straight to destination, I waited for all the bags to be dispensed at the carousel which never came. I later rushed through security check and told one of the officers that my connecting flight’s last call was in 15 min. She then placed me in front of 20-25 people. I was the last person to board the plane. All of this could have been avoided had the printing machine write my gate number and the ticketing crew tell me about my bag. They were too casual overall. I want United to give me a cash credit for my next flight. Every flight that I’ve taken with them has always had a hiccup on one leg of the flight or the other."
Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"
Cons: "We booked our seats for this family trip together, but were spread out all over the plane. The gate representative was very unpleasant to speak to. And classic United, overbooked the flight so there was no chance of fixing the seating."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."
Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."
Pros: "Reached SFO safely. Thank God!"
Cons: "Awfully rude and uncaring cabin crew. Especially a guy named Eric. Bumped my shoulder with service cart when Zi was sleeping. Ignored me when I tried to catch his attention several times. Didn’t care a damn about offering a vegetarian meal/snack. Both times only available meal was non vegetarian. Normally the crew tries to accommodate and offer some options. But Eric said this was it...take it or leave it. Just so rude and uncaring. No entertainment in head rest in front. Internet was extremely spotty and the charging station would stop after some time automatically :("
Pros: "They find an option though TPE as I missed my connection in SFO."
Cons: "Had a middle seat while I need a window to sleep in the plane. Was wasted on arrival."
Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."
Cons: "12+ hour flight with no working outlet to charge phone or headphones. When I asked to move to a seat that had a charger, they basically said no - even though there were about 20 open seats in the next "economy class" level. So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."
Pros: "Everything was great all around"
Pros: "Fast no problems"
Pros: "I had a special meal and they were mindful to bring it and check that everything was okay."
Cons: "I downloaded the United app for entertainment but for some reason, I wasn't able to watch movies. It kept giving me an error. Make sure you download the app before the flight and that you have the latest version! At least they were playing movies and shows on the main screens."
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."
Cons: "One of the male flight attendants was rude. Never seen such an impolite flight attendant before. Tapped my shoulder from behind to ask what drink i wanted which freaked me out, refused to lend a pen to passengers sitting next to me saying they could borrow one from ME and loaded extra snack for strangers sitting next to me on my table without telling me what you to do with them - am i a sandwich distrubutor who is supposed to stay awake till other passengers wake up to eat snack? I almost thought he was a racist that refused to talk to people who seem to speak no English. If that's the case, he'd better learn other languages so he can actually COMMUNICATE with passengers."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."
Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."
Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."
Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Pros: "The welcoming feeling that I received from the flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a drunk man on the flight. He kept making so many disruptions."
Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."
Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."
Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."
Pros: "Direct TV on the flight was limited to the channels available. While I like The Lego Movie, I would also prefer more choices."
Cons: "I am 5'10" and my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me for the entire trip. Essentially, I didn't fit in the seats."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."
Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."
Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."
Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"
Cons: "There was a long time delay. The inflight crew seemed to have an issue with helping you and when you did finally get a stewardess/steward, they will tell you to wait. No hot towel and almost an 8 hour wait to get your meal on a 13 hr flight!!!"
Pros: "Your staff was great"
Cons: "Although I am not enough of a united member to check into your club, I am in the military and I was told by your staff that checked me into my flight, that I could use the United Club as a military member. I went to the United Club in Narita going to the states I was allowed to go into the club. On my way back in went back to the same club and was told because I'm not going to Afghanistan I wasn't allowed into the Club. I walked away shaking my head at that. I guess because I am in S. Korea for a year without my family, that isn't good enough to be in your club."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. I was traveling with a baby and there was no gate agent anywhere to be found to help us get re-routed after the delay caused us to miss our connection. Terrible experience with United."
Pros: "I stopped flying United because it was a hassle. Boarding was a pain. For this flight? After first class? Window seats were boarded, then middle and aisle seats. It was VERY efficient. Flight was smooth. Service crew were great. Got in EARLY."
Cons: "The cost of the internet. I chose NOT to pay for it. Thank God I didn't. Flight was only 1 hour 45 minutes. that would have been REALLY expensive."
Pros: "We got to Columbus early"
