Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was could have been firmer and a little more space between the rows in economy would help greatly for comfort for all."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "Food is good except Chicken coconut curry"
Pros: "On time, fairly good food, good entertainment system."

Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Pros: "The flight crew are all amazing and provide excellent customer service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble. The aircraft is new and all facitlies great. Will fly with Qatar again"
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "No flight No refund"
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Cons: "We didnt travel on qatar airlines we travelled on airlines from chilie but the staff from qatar airlines"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
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 in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Cons: "Food choices could be better."
Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"

Pros: "The best."
Cons: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"
Cons: "terrible experience - hidden fees for 1st checked baggage travelocity messed up on their site when the ticket was purchased when in fact the person that travels needs to pay to check in the luggage"
Cons: "Meals not very good either way. Only movies that were not hits. Need more classic movies"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Pros: "Flight on time, crew polite and ready to help"
Cons: "Seats in the plane a little closer to each other than usual I think."

Pros: "Great price, great airlines, easy flight....I few LAX to Geneva."
Pros: "Crew was great. The frequent offer of water on a long flight was appreciated. The flight was on one, smooth and pleasant."
Cons: "Meat in the casserole ( goulash?) was not chewable. Other meals were fine."
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "Service was great, meal was fantastic, seats were very comfortable, and the assortment of things they provided for entertainment were fantastic."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "The app made it so easy. It is like your personal assistant with you telling you about your trip. No delays no major issues. I also liked the seats."

Cons: "The person at the Swiss/Lufthansa front desk, some Mohamed guy, was very rude when he did my check in"
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time Crew worked hard"
Cons: "Main issue: It was extremely cold in the plane the entire flight! Minor issue: entertainment computer did not work"
Pros: "I thought the crew was OUTSTANDING. The food was good and so was the entertainment. I LOVED the toilets being in the separate area downstairs. I also really appreciated the temperature: very comfortable and not freezing cold, but not hot either. Again, GREAT crew!!! Very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and arrived late, which made my connecting flight experience a nightmare My connecting flight arrived late, and I nearly missed my next flight. I had to go through border control (and relevant queues), running up and down multiple never-ending multiple escalators, then take a train to change terminal only to find out the gate had been changed to the furthest one in the terminal. I literally RAN all the way from deplaining to boarding. It was a night mare. I would have missed my flight if I had walked instead of running"
Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "The food was okay and the crew did their best to make us comfortable once we were on board. We flew business class, so that was probably a factor."
Cons: "Everything else was horrible. When we got to the airport, they didn't even know we were coming. They sent us to two other airlines, assuming we were flying with a partner airline, then tried to shift the blame onto Kayak. When -- and ONLY when -- we pointed out that we'd actually booked directly through Condor and Kayak had only served as the intermediary, they gave us a direct line to call. Then their agent said "You can't always trust the people at the desk, you know." Oh, really? If I can't trust your own agents, who can I trust, exactly? It turned out that we had an initial flight to Minneapolis, which was NOWHERE on the itinerary, on Sun Country. The Sun Country folks, thankfully, were enormously helpful and we made our flight with 2 minutes to spare. But it doesn't end there. We'd paid for business class all the way, but only got it on the interseas portions of our flights. And they lost our luggage on the way home, to boot. Take home lesson? NEVER FLY WITH CONDOR. I'll walk to Europe before ever booking with them again. And I'll make sure that all my friends and colleagues, all of whom travel extensively, know of our experience."
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Pros: "Had really less than an hour to pass through immigration and catch a connecting flight to Rome. In particular I thought my bag would not make the connection, and as I was going on to Perugia that evening and it would have been a big mess. At check-in for the Rome flight, the LH lady was able to confirm my bag was already aboard which put me at ease. It came through very quickly in Rome and I arrived in Perugia on time and with my bag! Food from Bogota was tasty and there was a complimentary snack on flight to Rome."
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, no delays"
Cons: "Not enough healthy options, such as fresh fruits and vegetables"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "crew was very polite & attentive; relatively comfortable even though the flight was packed; free cognac after dinner, even in economy class!"
Cons: "some of the food was only so-so, but still not bad"
Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Unhelpful and now luggage has been lost going on 3 days in same clothes"
Pros: "Stewardesses were very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Didn't like my family (including 14 year old daughter) being assigned separate seating for a long overseas flight! Idiotic!!"
Pros: "Landing was very smooth! Loved being able to go downstairs to baths b/c it was a chance to move!"
Cons: "AC was broken for the first 30-45min. It was quite hot with all of the people stuck on the plane. Luckily, the pilot was able to use the plane's engines to create AC."
Pros: "The attendant showed concern and promised to report, great attitude"
Cons: "I was surprised that my meal request was not passed to the airlines"
Pros: "The flight was on time, staff attentive and made frequent rounds. The food was good and entertainment with a fair selection of options."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the day of my travel Lufthansa had a ongoing strike at the Frankfurt airport. The Lufthansa terminal was closed, luckily I was one of the few to get the bus shuttle. Once I arrived at the correct terminal the check in process and boarding was a pleasure, much friendly and competent staff to assist"
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "The seats, staff, entertainment, particularly liked that you served hot chocolate! The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food -vegan menu was bad for n the outgoing flight, better on the incoming flight. No vegan food available on domestic fight. Sitting in the aisle seat meant often people pushing past your seat."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."

Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"

Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "The schedule and timing"
Cons: "The airport, some of the crew, the aircraft seats, the entertainment system"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats in business were super comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."

Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."

Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."

Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."

Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"

Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."

Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"

Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "Boarding & crew (inc ground staff & check-in) all good."

Pros: "Nice food Right in time Police and customs formalities easy"
Cons: "Poor comfort in business class No entertainment at all"
Pros: "Boarding and punctuality."
Cons: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We ordered a vegetarian meal. However, the vegetarian option offered to those who did not order a special meal looked better than the vegetarian option that we received."
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"

Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
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 fast boarding."
Cons: "The long wait without the air conditioning until our slot in the takeoff list became available."
Cons: "Crew member in first class not polite at all... And there was no food on a 5hr flight even in first class."
Pros: "United is fine."
Cons: "They have a Delay and they comunicated late. I traveled with a 3 month old baby, so you can imagine whe you have a delay of more than 5 hours."
Pros: "Made up time lost to bad weather. Several announcements from pilot-I always like that. Makes me feel more personally cared for. "My friend the pilot is taking me there". That might explain how it makes me feel. Wish they did it more. Don't usually complain but below you will see I did."
Cons: "Your headrest are especially cheap, plastic like, with little padding. Being in back row(no recline) would have been manageable if I could have leaned head to side to rest on something that extended out. Left too much light on (all down center) for an overnight flight. Served heavy dinner at 2am. Woke everyone up. Later light breakfast would have been more appropriate. Bathrooms reeked and waste bin overflow. Stewardess in back chatting. Don't they ever check?. They didn't seem to want to there."
Pros: "seat was comfortable, crew was kind"
Cons: "screaming child"
Pros: "The lounge and boarding area at Houston Airport were great. The staff at boarding did a good job keeping everyone happy and in line and boarding in the proper zones."
Cons: "All the flight attendants were trainees. I was served cold coffee because it took so long to get from the front of the plane to the back. I was given a toothpick to stir it with.

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Flying on the beauty Dreamlier Boeing 787"
Cons: "Luggage crew too slow in both airports"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The attendants were diligent.the gate areas were comfortable. Check in was easy, and help was standing by for any issues."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process"
Pros: "Help changes with my seat assignment"
Cons: "Leg room bad.....attendants. not very happy"
Pros: "They staff was friendly and they boarded efficiently."
Cons: "The worst part of the flight was the fact that they have redesigned their planes. They have put the seats even closer together and their new seats are horribly uncomfortable. The seats are made out of a hard molded plastic. There is no give and they don’t form to you back at all. Their comfort level I would rank at a zero! I had thought they may not be bad for a domestic flight as mine was international, however, I also had them for a domestic and they were equally uncomfortable. I will be checking off of United on my next flight as I can not sit in a seat this uncomfortable ever again! Try again United!!! #UnitedSeatsUncomfortable, #HorridSeats,"
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Pros: "One flight attendant who went above and beyond to compensate for the airline having prepared a vegetarian meal option"
Cons: "Called ahead to secure a vegetarian meal option for a 6-hr flight and the meal was promised. Once on flight it was explained to me that vegetarian option was not offered on this flight. If customer rep would have explained that, u would have taken measures to bring along a prepared meal for myself. Not okay."
Pros: "Economy tickets were over sold and I was moved to 1st class seat! Best flight ever.!!!"
Cons: "Customer service, baggage policy, service at the airport counter, in short everything."
Pros: "Flight was delayed but the pilots got us there in time to make our connecting flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "On an international flight didn't expect to pay for movies and our seats didn't recline. Made for a long and uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Because of the delay, I missed my connecting flight, but a United staff member was ready to hand me a boarding pass for a new flight right when I got off the plane. That took away any worry or hassle for me, which I appreciated."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 2 hours. Also, my headphone jack was broken, so I could not connect my headphones to watch a movie. When I tried to explain the problem, the flight attendant misunderstood and just ended up bringing me a new pair of headphones... not helpful."
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay caused necessity of connection to be unusable - no explanation. Virtually useless help in getting a new connection."
Cons: "seating at the exit row so no screen and wifi did not work so no private screening"
Cons: "I got ripped off I paid in advanced and gave all my information to them in Dallas and they told me I am not in there system so I could not fly home i had to take the grey hound at the last minute"
Pros: "The people at the gate were very friendly and helped ensure we made the plane although we were late because of a misunderstanding of the boarding times. The original itinerary was booked through Kayak for Lufthansa months ago. The flight was 10:25 and boarding time was 9:50 up until the night before the flight. The crew members made a remark while we boarded as if it was because we went to the duty free. It was not because of the duty free visit and would have liked to tell the flight attendant to keep that remark to herself or wait until she was in private with her coworkers. It's a matter of professionalism if she wasn't going to confront me personally."
Cons: "Plane was old. The overhead compartments kept opening upon takeoff and landing. Although passengers were able to close them, they would just open again. This posed a safety concern to the passengers near the compartments. (3 compartment doors that I know of opened). The TV screens were unsatisfactory for an international flight greater than 5 hours. The food was disgusting and competitor airlines offer a much better selection for international flights. Would not consider United for an international flight based on this experience despite price."
Pros: "The roominess of the sets on this plane were excellent and the stewardesses were very friendly and accommodating ."
Pros: "Great service from take off to touch down!"
Cons: "No vhangibg table in 1st class cabin bathroom!"
Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"
Cons: "Bag was sent LAX. I have very important documents and items in my bag. Still waiting on it to arrive..."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I was not able to use the TV because the key to change channels was broken. I did not like the food, Too many calories and starches and the airplane was old and outdated. Thanks"
Pros: "I liked that we made it to Cabo in a timely fashion"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to download an app to get free wifi."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour Changed gates after our initial flight time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The aircraft was a bit older for a 6 hours flight so I felt too closed to a person next to me"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was having an "off" day - the bin she had closed over my head opened during takeoff (nothing fell out), and later she broke a glass on my tray, sending pieces of glass into my lap. Not damage done (except that I didn't finish my last few bites of lunch!), and everyone has an off day sometimes..."
Pros: "Appreciated the heads up of slight flight delay and baggage carousel location."
Pros: "Everybody help me good information Thanks"
Pros: "The overall punctually of the flight was very accurate and i appreciate that very much."
Cons: "One flight attended in particular was very rude. Blonde short and slightly over weight. Her deminer towards the passengers was very unprofessional. It is unfortunate to have someone like that in a 6 hour flight. Seats are very small and couldn't charge my phone. Also couldn't watch the flight path unless I paid for the entertainment"
Cons: "Was late like 7 hours"
Pros: "Punctual, good service"
Pros: "Honestly nothing. The flight was a disaster."
Cons: "Second flight of the day with zero drink service. I suppose the hostesses were too busy napping and eating their dinner as they never left the last row of the plane. They sure had drinks and dinner even though we didn't. Also should have cancelled or delayed the flight rather than make us wait forever on the plane waiting for a new route to miss weather at our destination."
Cons: "They delayed the flight because they had no flight attendant. They delayed it every 15 minutes from 450 to 715 and then just stopped updating us at all. We all waited with no food or drink or any news. At 815 they cancelled it and sent the whole plane to customer service to wait in line. Most of us had to stay in Wash and leave the next day. They offered us nothing except to rebook the flight. The boarding crew was laughing and joking the whole time with zero regard for our discomfort or ruining connecting flights! Never again."
Pros: "Arriving 6 hours late"
Cons: "Talking to filth in the Dulles International Airport"
Cons: "Tv control did not work, cabin in my área very hot"
Pros: "Seats and leg room were acceptable for economy seats."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work right on most devices. Finally got some of it to work on one cell phone."
Cons: "have no idea if I'll even make it thru the day."
Cons: "incoming plane was delayed 3 hours and caused me to miss my connection. got transferred to another flight the next morning."
Pros: "Right away when United found out we would not make our connecting flight in Denver they called AA and booked us with them."
Cons: "That due to the delay and new airline we arrived in Springfield an hour later then planned."
Pros: "I slept during both flights. The connections were close by and I had time to grab a bite to eat."
Cons: "I have no complaints whatsoever. The weather cooperated and the flight crew was super good."
