Pros: "Some of the crew were friendly, certainly not all of them."

Pros: "Crew were excellent , very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food was horrible , not much options for vegans"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "Hard sandwhich"
Pros: "Best food on a plane I have had yet"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service."
Pros: "The staff near Baggage check-in area are always rude with the customers, it also happened to us in the past."
Cons: "Very very poor customer service"
Cons: "Service was not as good."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Bad food in flight back from dubai to dallas."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and not very accommodating. They did not respond to the request button and did not bring the water I asked for many times."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Good tasting dinner and pizza. Decently comfortable seats:good recline, nice headrests, and sufficient leg room, but the seat and back pads were hard."
Cons: "Smoked salmon is gross for on a plane,even just as an appetizer. Meals were skimpy (dinner, apple/granola bar, pizza snack) for such a long 8+ hour flight. Collecting blankets & headphones well before landing was inconsiderate (I was COLD for the last 40+ minutes, and couldn't watch anything or listen to music for the last 30 minutes). Flight attendants needed to offer pens for customs forms."
Pros: "Availability of choice of meal (vegan)"
Cons: "Crew behaviour in general"
Pros: "Excellent food, good timing of food, drinks, etc. helpful flight attendants who were efficient and not overbearing."
Cons: "The plane was very cold when we got on, and it was difficult to get a blanket. It was also very cold when landing when we were required to give our blankets back!"
Cons: "Can you enforce the team NOT to throw the luggage to keep on the belt(s) as you guys don't have to."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Pros: "Great service, decent & hot food options."
Cons: "Could do with a better food & drink selection."
Pros: "Best airline I have had the chance to fly with. Right up there with Virgin - this time it surpassed. Great staff, lots of room, clean, amenities (blanket, pillow, toothbrush, eye mask, earphones for the movie ), 2 quality meals + meal voucher for overlay redeemable at a variety of options."
Cons: "Response time (over an hour) on requests. I don't believe there was internet available on the second flight?"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "The crew didn't turn off the lights completely. Was tough to get any sleep. The new business class seats are quite cramped."

Enjoyed business class, food, comfort and the crew was great. It as if I was on a shorter trip because of the comfort. I love Qatar airways 👍👍👍👍👍

Overall good experience with just the JetBlue Qatar should have kept the checked in luggage at the Boston Airport while rebooking the missed connection to MSP. That made it extra hard on passengers to carry their luggage to hotel and back and check-in again.

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."

Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight and the service was great!"
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Cons: "No upgrades. Worst flight."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."

Everything was efficient. Plane left on time and arrived on time. Good weather and a smooth flight.

I completely missedy flight to South America because of a maintenance issue.

Delayed departure due to short staffed security at Burlington Airport. Missed connection flight. Terrible customer service at Delta. 7 hour travel day turned into a 24 hour travel day.

Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and it was a day fast flight."

Cons: "More vegan options"
Pros: "Not a lot"

Pros: "I had an awesome seat 10a with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was as good as can be expected."
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Cons: "Add A Display Board For When Cabin Sections Are Boarding"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Pros: "The movies were entertaining"
Cons: "Delays."
Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."
Pros: "Emergency exit window seat"
Cons: "Punctuality 7hrs delays over 2 flights is unacceptable Ruined the first day of my trip"
Cons: "they let someone get off the plane and it delayed the flight an hour and a half which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I now have to sit for a 5 hour layover"
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Nice plane staff"
Cons: "Very hot airport. Having to load plane outside (hotter on tarmac). Then Delta being 3.50 hours late. Sitting in a hot airport for 6 hours. Not my idea of fun"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and well planned. The pilot was talking to the passengers politely, was updating about the flight every time when it was turbulence. The crew is very smiling, sweet and nice. The snacks are good and fresh. Very clean airplane with a good fresh odor. Good job! You are fantastic!"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"
Cons: "Delayed, gate agent trying to rebook not super helpful"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Pros: "Great service, free movies, nice crew."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"
Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Cons: "We sat near the back of the plane and it was terribly noisy. You couldn barely converse with your seat partner or the flight attendant. These seats should be discounted."
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."
Pros: "The tv in the back of every seat makes any seat a good seat."
Pros: "smooth landing, little turbulence and very accomadationg staff. Plane was clean and comfy seats. My youngest had not been on plane in quite some time, and the flight attendants my her very at ease"
Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"
Pros: "Good Comfort+ seat, but needs a bit more recline - especially on a 9+ hour flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Glad I have the comfort+ as the other seats have minimal leg room. Bathrooms could use a refresh."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "No food. Only snacks and very good snacks"
Pros: "Flight left on time and got in early. This allowed us to catch an earlier flight to Seattle."
Pros: "Everything went fast and smooth."
Cons: "Thought Comfort Plus had in-seat charging ports, but neither leg of our flight did (A320, RJ900)"

Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"
Cons: "I like everything about the flight"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Flight took off on time. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Cabin was cramped. Food quality was so so."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment equipment needs to be updated. And the seats arrangements are not the best in term of privacy."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Departing on time."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "I really like this airline"
Cons: "The crew were all very nice"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "Just flight attendants"
Cons: "I paid $123 for the flight and than I was profiled by the attended and forced to pay $85 to check in my carry on as a baggage. My carry on fit in the display model, it was 1/2 inch showing because of the handle and I was forced to pay an extra $85! Almost as much as my flight costed. When I was boarding the plane I saw several people with carry on baggage that were wider and longer than mine. I will never fly thru British Airways or book thru Kayak.com again. When I get back to my country I will file every complaint I can thru google and social media. I never felt so disrespected and ripped off!"
Cons: "Double charge and unprofessional untrained staff on the counter"
Pros: "On time, smooth boarding."
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing - and this was Club Europe"
Cons: "Punctuality (lack of). Comfort (lack of). Seat pitch. Food. Cabin crew service. State of aircraft. Price (premium for a budget service)."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Your teammates, Fatou and Sarah at the check in desk in charles de gaulle made our lives doo easy after a stressful and ling journey. Their kind service and forethought helped us a lot."
Cons: "BA's poor customer service team who don't explain extra baagge charges correctly and don't have the decency to say they were in the wrong for not dealing with my issue correctly ans giving the run around"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, serving food, drinks and water very often"
Cons: "BA made me place my laptop and Ipad in the checked bag, preventing me from working on my computer for the next 20+ hours until my final destinations. Ridiculous policy! Very rude immigration and security people at Riyadh, I realize this is not BA's fault, but it was very annoying. Second level search of my carry-on bags at the gate very invasive procedure."
Cons: "For the second London trip in a row, my return flight to BWI was cancelled. Not weather, not equipment, just cancelled."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Pros: "On time, smooth and comfortable flight. Crew very helpful"
Cons: "There wasn’t much not to like about this flight. All very good. But so short no entertainment really possible"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Security - I was screened and it was uncomfortable and they kept the lights on for a while overnight"
Cons: "Extremely long delay and the crew didn't explain until half way to London why the flight was so delayed. Horrible service"
Pros: "Online check in & boarding pass on your phone using BA app."
Cons: "Seats are quite cramped"
Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "The airplane was new"
Cons: "Check in Crew and service Unqualified personnel is running the operation I suggest they get some training g from Turkish airlines"
Cons: "I have change my return tickets to one week before original return date, and the fees for changing was 4600£ I have the same issue with Qatar airways and they charged me only 100£"
Cons: "Airline had email and cell phone and did not notify me of the canceled flight. Wanted to fly me out two days later. Did not offer to look at airline partners or rivals to try and fly us out on day we were scheduled. Offered a refund. So they were willing to refund a flight we booked a year in advance so I can look for new airfare with 12 hours notice."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Cons: "Takes too long to go through security in Lisbon. Several passengers were left behind. Having to pay for even a glass of water is not acceptable. BA has gone from one of my favorites to just average."
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty, but had to pay for it. On short flight, that's not a big deal."
Pros: "Loved the new BA airplanes. Great staff and customer service"
Cons: "I would not use Kayak again. Went though some noname ticketed named webjets. Called multiple times and could not get anyone who spoke proper english. Due to the fact that you did not buy the ticket direct BA customer service could not assist us"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

Super old plane. Needs updating badly. Great crew. First class experience seriously lacking these days- a whole can of ginger ale and crackers? Disappointing.

We were late getting to our connecting flight. The flight crew was immensely helpful in getting us on the plan and on our way home.

Pros: "good crew. plane was showing of wear. torn pockets and worn out seats."
Cons: "newer aircraft or refurbished one."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"
Cons: "Had to wait on the plane for an hour before takeoff for a 2.5 hr flight."
Cons: "No room in the seats at all"
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Pros: "very friendly crew"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"
Cons: "As a result of arriving late on Air Canada we never made our flight to Tokyo. Had to rebook and fly Asians through Seoul. Asiana flight was excellent!"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Pros: "Flight delayed, missed connection in Chicago. United automatically confirmed me on next flight."
Cons: "United sent timely notification that flight would be delayed. Sent no notice regarding missing connection in Chicago or rebooking the connection. The only notice that United automatically rebooked me was on the United app on my phone."
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."
Pros: "The staff was extra friendly. I had a good seat coming and goin. Flight was very smooth."
Cons: "No headphones were given. I left mine at home."
Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."
Pros: "economy is so cramped! It really should not be legal. Any flight at 5:30 AM should give people more than a cookie. All airport food shops are closed at that hour."
Cons: "Why is every connecting flight in Denver located in a different terminal and at the farthest gate? It's always a sprint to make the flight. I got singled out for a complete pat down. I was wearing light summer clothing. I'm 65 years old. It makes no sense. Those machines need recalibrsting."
Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"
Cons: "Was supposed to arrive in time for my speaking engagement - since I was the speaker, I was very upset I missed it!!!"
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"
Pros: "Being told how unimportant my issue/ need was"
Cons: "Customer service, terrible desk agents and a triple delay."
Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "Boarding, on time and luggage handling were all smooth with no glitches"
Cons: "Snacks. Really, why bother."
Pros: "ONLY 3 OF 10 CHECK IN DESKS OPEN FOR 250 PEOPLE. TOOK OVER 90 MINUTES."
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."
Cons: "People carry to many carry-on's and many times to large but the policy is not enforced."
Pros: "Good service, quick flight, food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Checked my carry on even though there were many open overhead bins and I explained we only had an hour layover in Dulles"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very confusing boarding, multiple flights in same gate with no obvious line. Plane interior very bare-bones, not updated in any way for comfort or ergonomics. No entertainment or food available, though it was a short flight. Plane responded terribly when we hit significant turbulence."
Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Departing from Charlotte was delayed more than 2 hours made it to Dallas in time for the connection to San Francisco, then that flight was delayed 3 hours. I was originally scheduled to arrive at 9:46 pm but arrived around 1:00 am. This has been happening more frequently on flights on United."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."
Pros: "I didn't like the flight cuz I wasn't on it..."
Cons: "Father in hospital tri d to change flight ... 250$ change fee for a 130$ ticket is stupid"
Pros: "Easy."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "the staff was friendly and helpful, boarding was fast"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirty, crumbs on my seat for the first flight but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient. All went as planned"
Cons: "I'm not a big person .. But still felt like a sardine in a can .. I had to coordinate moves with the man next to me just to be able to read a magazine or try to reach my bag under the seat .. Good thing it was a short flight!"
Pros: "Great service and flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for TV."
