Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Baggage claim at IAD"
Pros: "After not letting us on the flight, they airline re-routed us, which ended up working out well. they were patient and reassuring when doing so."
Cons: "Our Hamburg flight was 10-15 mins late. We arrived at the gate for our next leg to find the doors locked 10 mins before flight departure. They knew we were on a connector that was late but just bumped us off."
Cons: "I'd really like to see specific baggage allowance written on the ticket or confirmation letter. That was very frustrating that it wasn't specifically listed. Especially with multi-city trip, having to go look up each leg and try to remember allowances, would have been better if it was just listed al"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."
Cons: "I think it went as well as possible. No delays in boarding and only short delay waiting for a gate at SFO. The flight crew were very friendly and drinks and food were adequate."
Pros: "lousy crew — one was too busy reading his newspaper to bother telling people who were waiting for the toilet that there was another unmarked toilet right behind where the people were waiting"
Cons: "a newer plane. the plane was so old that there were no monitors and the seats were very difficult tilt back (about two inches)"
Pros: "More leg room on Swiss Air flight I ended up getting rebooked on and smaller plane seating only 2 on the sides, so much better than bigger Air Canada plane on outbound flight to Europe"
Cons: "Again, I did not make the DC flight,not delayed as an email had announced but closed at least 20 mins prior to departure, so no one was let in (after running through Zurich airport, again, no help). Rebooking possible and easy for my route, difficult for those going to DC and further west."
Pros: "The food."
Pros: "It was a united operated flight with a united airplane and crew. Seats and space were much more comfortable."
Cons: "Better food options, better quality snacks."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Current movies available. Economy seats were fine."
Cons: "In general, airline food stinks. In Economy, UA is no exception. Bring your own sandwiches or salads. You'd think they could do better on long-haul flights."
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working 100% so it was spotty but otherwise 2hr flight went along."
Pros: "Everything about the airlines and aircraft and crew make you feel like you’re flying first class even when you’re not. The plane was immaculate, foot was gourmet (and A LOT of it!) and crew was professional, friendly and efficient. I will plan on scheduling all my international flights with Swiss Airlines when possible. We even flew on a shorter flight with them and still received a good sized meal."

Picked for security which was fine except stood in line for 1/2 hr. while those suppose to check us were sitting and laying around. Make me too late for helping my husband ( in a wheelchair) onto plane."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was great in the plane - service, pleasant stewards, food was tasty."

Pros: "Great flight everyone was really helpful thank you United."
Pros: "Check-in Staff were friendly and efficient. Undersold flight, so they reseated several people to give them an adjacent vacant seat, so I got to sleep curled up. Great on an 9 hour early morning flight (7am check-in, up at 3:30). Boarding and flight staff were great too."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."

Pros: "Entertainment was very good"

Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "Good food and frequent water service. Pleasant attendant s"
Cons: "Malfunctioning seat in front of me"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and drinks served a long time after the meal. I had a log (daylight) flight and attendants insisted that all blinds be down and then the lights were turned off in plane. No one was sleeping and most watching TV. I as a reader of books was inconvenienced by low light."
Pros: "I never made it on the flight. It was delayed serval hours and eventually cancelled. I few American to Chicago."
Cons: "This was one of the worst travel experience I have ever had. My flight to Denver was delayed over an hour causing me to miss my connection and I had a 3.5 hour layover. My flight leaving San Diego was delayed serval hours. Eventually was cancelled. I should have been home by 6pm didn't get home till 11pm. Both flights delayed due to issues with the planes."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and welcoming when service was provided. The food was delicious - quinoa salad was unexpected and delicious. Also enjoyed the ice cream at the end of the meal"
Cons: "The flight on the ticket stated it was a Swiss flight operated by United. When we arrived we asked which kiosk to check in and we were misinformed. It would be a time saver if the airlines would educate their employees on where the customer should check in."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Checking in at Zurich airport was a long nightmare especially using the terminals to get boarding passes (there were three, one was broken, and other people had such a hard time using those two that there was a massive queue and I worried I would be late!).
