Movie choices are very limited, emirates choices were lot better

My luggage was delayed because the flight arrived late and I almost missed my connecting flight to Atlanta. My luggage was delayed and it took 3 days to receive my luggage once it arrived in Atlanta. The baggage department is horrendous and non-existent. I did not get a call, I had to go to the Airport and wait for manager to board a flight, waited 3 hours and then they got my luggage for me. I understand staffing issues but there should be a better process for baggage services.

This flight was cancelled

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
Pros: "All is well"
Cons: "Everything is excellent"
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Cons: "Too much A/C, feel cold."
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Pros: "Entertainment, vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Bit more comfortable seat"
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."
Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Excellent Service and most friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. But the food taste can be better"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"
Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."
Cons: "Can't find any fault...Sorry!"
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."
Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Cons: "Thanks"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
Pros: "It was really good, crew helped a lot me n my baby, it was not difficult to travel alone with my baby"
Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
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: "Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Wine. Good movies"
Cons: "USB charging didn’t work. WiFi wouldn’t connect. Food was horrible. Cheap pasta. Flight attendants are just German, no warmth or connection, they just gave orders like we were employees. Will try to avoid Lufthansa in future if possible"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The transfer at Frankfurt was a horrible experience. The terminal for departure was all the was at the other side of the airport. Leaving me barely enough time to transfer."
Cons: "Poorly equipped aircraft. No charging stations. No video of any kind. Pitiful food offerings. It's a four hour flight. Gotta do better."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Cons: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"
Pros: "Nice plane, about the best in-seat entertainment options I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Water only and.. I had to asked for it. No snacks or other drinks in my eighteenth hour of flying back from Poland :(("
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom and it was very, very much worth it. My husband is 6 foot four and he was able to stretch out his legs comfortably. Seats are not uncomfortable, which is different from some airlines we’ve been on, and we really like the adjustable headrest where the sides can be flipped up to keep your head from rolling around while snoozing. We like that the silverware is actually metal instead of plastic!"
Cons: "The screen that folded out of the armrest was so small that watching a movie on it gave us a headache. The furst meal/lunch was so-so. Personally I would prefer a mixed fresh salad with a little bit of ham or chicken on top instead of the attempt at a hot mushy entree. The second meal/dinner was Similar to a hot pocket. The bread and the filling was pretty tasteless. Why not just have a healthy fruit bowl? Would have liked to see some English language reading material in the seat back pocket – it appeared to be only German language. Alternatively, it would be great if the flight attendants could offer non-German language reading materials upon request."
Pros: "Service personnel for the most part were friendly on the plane. I was happy that my luggage came with me, i've had several times in the past when it hasn't."
Cons: "Some of the German women and men at the counter could be LESS serious and more polite in customer service. Delayed flight was a long time to wait."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Plane was newer (and cleaner)."
Cons: "Look like everybody to not know what they want to do"
Pros: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."
Pros: "The crew, both in SFO and on board where e excellent. We were well taken care of, in both area's. The service on the plane were top notch, anticipating our every need. The food was yummy and the entertainment great!"
Pros: "Promptness Excellent cabin crew"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Very professional!"
Cons: "The movie collection could be better."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Lufthansa did well with handling a very difficult situation with courtesy, attention, and offering of amenities."
Cons: "Through no fault of Lufthansa, because of problems at JFK, our flight was turned around and returned to Munich after two hours of travel."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The premium economy clas was wonderful. All of the amenities, comfort, room made a long trip far more enjoyable. The crew was right there to help me get to the next gate."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is dreadful. I'm elderly and being forced to climb up and down stairs to the Tarmac with luggage and then crammed into a bus to the terminal was terrible. I would avoid Frankfurt at all costs. Lufthansa needs to take some initiative with this."
Pros: "service crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."
Pros: "Great customer services, Very outstanding staff."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."
Pros: "My flight was business and it was excellent the staff was great and I think his name is Peter"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They served a light snack in spite of being a very short flight."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Clean, polite, new, MUC is a sparkling modern airport. Crew looked snazzy and there were plenty of downstairs bathrooms. On flight movies are great as were audio books on board,"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "The cabin was warm and couldn't control temp."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Food Crew appearances"
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Pros: "I like the friendly crew. They give refreshments at no charge on a 40 minute flight and get it done in time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was nice Lots of movie choices but the headphone jack isn't compatible with regular personal headphones so you had to use theirs which were uncomfortable and poor sound quality"
Cons: "And they lost our luggage."
Pros: "We made our transfer"
Cons: "Our airplane was assigned a remote parking space instead of main terminal but our bus came quickly to main terminal and we made our transfer and through customs in an hour"
Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Love the variety of entertainment options on such a long flight. The food is always so good, you make me feel so cared for."
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."
Pros: "Most of all."
Cons: "The headphone connection method. It is difficult to replace the headphone w/ your own because the connector is located deep in the headphone compartment and you cannot see it in easily. As far as you use the built-in headphones, no problem."
Pros: "Food , great service"

Everything was great

The most exceptional jester durring experience with American Airlines was the assistance I received from the ladies at the arrival kiosk. They helped me identify my ticket number from an American Airlines e-mail and then completed the whole process for me on the self-help computer. This saved me time from standing is line at the information counter to find out what to do. The worst experience was trying to find my checked luggage in the Miami Airport. It was very confusing to know which belt my flights my flights luggage was delivered to. Other passengers were also confused and we waited at the wrong belt for over half an hour before receiving help from one of the customer assistants to learn where to go. This was not directly the airlines fault, but they could have anounced which belt number our luggage would be delivered to.

Employees very helpful and courteous. Nice trip.

Pros: "Crew amazing!!!"
Cons: "Better maybe in giving drinks every once in a while like they use to."
Pros: "After the GSO - PHL flight, I mistakenly boarded a flight to Portland Maine PWM. Why didn’t the gate attendant catch this error?"

Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"
Pros: "The crew handed out “party favors bags” with bottled water and snacks."
Cons: "The American Airlines app deleted the connecting flight after a Ground Stop delay caused us to arrive after its departure. We were “flying blind” trying to get set up as a standby for a subsequent flight. The process was stressful due to insufficient information."

Cons: "There is a complete lack of airport personnel at 3:00am and the fire alarm went off and sounded for about half an hour or so."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Did not cramp anywhere entire flight. Great air vent control."
Cons: "Boarding was weird. Many Passengers in the last rows put their bags up by row 20 so that made boarding and disembarking slower and harder as we had to go forward extra rows to use the back empty bins and then fight against traffic to get back to our seats. Passing bags up when leaving or waiting to"
Pros: "I am traveling with my 79yr old infirm mother. The crew was so kind & so helpful! On the scale of 1-10 (10=Best) they were like 100! Even though my flight was delayed a bit it was still VERY GOOD! Plus the flight was amazing. The flight was also amazing. Even though we were flying though a storm."
Cons: "You couldn’t have been on time because of the storm so there’s nothing that you could have done"
Pros: "Crew was amazing considering we had a delay for a 18 minute flight due to weather. They passed out water etc.. even though they didn't have to"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "On times and good service - half-empty plane."
Pros: "Great film selection. Wonderful food and drinks. Airline staff quickly arranged for us to catch two more flights when there was a delay."

Cons: "May be legg more room, either I gain way or the seat are smaller. But I got home safe, so I will use you again."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, clean and comfortable and the flight was on time"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly"
Cons: "No individual movie screen. Entertainment bad for an international flight. I paid for selected seats but did not receive, instead our family was scattered about the plane."
Pros: "I got there in one piece. Even made my connection (barely)"
Cons: "TSA were abusing power and pulling ppl out of line like crazy. Tried to take Christmas toys from someone (and they weren’t in violation of anything. ) flight was delayed and took so long it would have been faster to drive to Charlotte. Whole airport was the most inefficient thing I have ever seen."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Movies."
Cons: "Food-gross, but expected for pre-fab food."
Cons: "Think this plane still had screens overhead vs personal screens."
Pros: "boarding process"
Cons: "seats feel crowded. the actual seat is very uncomfortable, they lack padding."
Pros: "The pasta offered at lunch was tasty."
Cons: "The snack which was described as pizza had a really bad taste and this offering should be discontinued and something that tastes better should be offered."
Pros: "It was okay flight little late on departure but could be better"
Cons: "Seats are not roomy or comfortable"
Pros: "Comfort and roominess of seat, after switching seats with another passenger who requested it to be closer to her boyfriend. Great take off and landing. Crew was attentive. Entertainment system at each seat was awesome."
Cons: "Although the food was better on my trip back to NY from Rome, it was not the best."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Everyone was helpful and friendly and genuinely wanted you to have a safe flight."
Cons: "The plane didn't have a plug to charge your phone or independent dedicated screens you could pick your entertainment to watch. Everyone had to watch the same thing. I suggest downloading your favorite Netflix shows to your phone or tablet for entertainment. The food was just ok also."
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight got cancelled because of no available pilots"
Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was a lot of extra room on the flight so it was comfortable. The meals were tasty. I was glad they gave us a few snacks in addition to the main meal and the dinner snack with the tart and the sponge taper very good."
Cons: "The monitors were very difficult to use. I had to press them multiple times to change the screen"
Cons: "Delays, attitudes, and fees"

Cons: "Brand new plane seats were great and tons of entertainment"

Cons: "Friendlier service."
Pros: "Most uncomfortable plane that I've ever been on"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "I missed the flight because we were delayed out of NC. And I had to get a hotel since there were no more flights that night. I’m still stuck in Denver."
Cons: "Better accommodations by United."
Pros: "The crew were great but the inability to elevate your legs for such a long journey wasn’t too comfortable"
Cons: "The ability to elevate your legs"
Pros: "Being on time at departure and arrival is a challenge, but despite having a completely filled cabin, they made it look easy."
Cons: "I boarded in Group 4 and all bins were full. So my carry on case had to be checked (several others’ cases as well). This caused me a 30 minute delay at baggage claim and some minor scuffs on an item that wasn’t designed for checking in. These are 2 reasons why I no longer check in. 3 is lost items."
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "Highly professional and exceptionally courteous service by the cabin crew. Professionally dressed. Organized and dilligent. Customer friendly. The way an airline owner and CEO would want to be represented to the paying customer by a frontline segment of his/her organization. Best UAL/Lufthansa experience ever for me."
Cons: "The ‘third world’ arrival handling by IAD. Ragged transporters. No intercom service or effort whatsoever to advise pax of apparent problem at main terminal. Turned off transporter engine and left us on the tarmac breathing diminishing air in the module and wondering what was going on. Mobile passport service ‘not working’ at jam-packed immigration. Luggage retrieval frustrated by problems or incompetence and finally located at an undesignated conveyor area. No kudos to IAD. All kudos to Lufthansa/UAL. One Exception was my ‘by chance’ immigration agent who for the first time ever for me at IAD said “welcome home” as he waved me on."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have no customer service."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"
Pros: "Reasonably helpful counter staff that let me still board 10 mins before takeoff"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "Every time I fly to Denver, we land in one terminal and your connection is in another terminal that requires a train ride to get there. ,ayovers are short — generally barely an hour. If the flight is late you stand a very good chance of missing your connection, as I’m betting happened to over half the passengers on this flight. I was the lucky exception — this aircraft was actually the connecting flight too. Why can’t all United connections be in the same terminal? It makes no sense."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their jobs/duties."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "I got to my destination and didn’t die."
Cons: "Poorly marked gate. Late boarding time. Sat on shuttle for 20 minutes before they took us to the plane. Then we sat on the plane with the heat blasting and no air available. Flight was delayed due to maintenance."
Pros: "Frankly, I didn't like anything. Flying economy, even economy plus for more than 2 hours is not comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system had an annoying buzz in the system."
Cons: "Not only was boarding delayed almost 2 hours. Once we were on the plane, we sat on the tarmac for over an hour. We landed in SFO at 12:45 and missed my connector to Bend. United was not willing to do anything for me for the inconvenience (except hand out blankets)...so I slept in the airport until the next available flight at 8 a.m. the next more...I hope."
Cons: "2 Hours late"
Pros: "Rude and un friendly stewards"
Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Flight was late, at the end they told people to hurry up so they can be on their way with the next destination"
Cons: "Almost didn't get to flight. Service desk had one person checking in bags. No communication with anyone in line and they had no help. Very poor service. Only was I made it was risking taking bag on flight."
Pros: "Nice Airplane and all good except the service. Can't complain about anything but the unfriendliness of the flight attendants. The food was not as god as foreign carriers but basically OK."
Cons: "The service was very curt and unfriendly. This seems to be typical on United International flights when flying in Coach! I've spoiled myself by flying on foreign carriers who all have MUCH friendlier flight attendants, better food, and no charge for drinks. that would include Air France, KLM, Turkish, LOT and British Airways."
Pros: "That we made it with no major issues."
Cons: "Delays to land, taxi, and no TV, no outlet in the plane. Very old plane."
Pros: "The in-flight crew were very nice and no one got beat up. our flight was delayed but we got put on a later flight without issue."
Cons: "No entertainment and no free wifi and the seats hurt my beck and back. The girl who checked us in was abrasive to us and everyone in front of us in line, but maybe she wasn't trying to be, that was just her personality. Our flight got delayed which meant we missed out on seeing an old friend I hadn't seen in years, but at least we got there."
Cons: "The employees were verbally rude, borderline abusive. The airline was completely disorganized, changing our gate 3 times. Literally the worst airline experience I have had in years."
Pros: "I got to fly with friends. It was a short enough flight."
Cons: "You have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The tv screen's controls look over a decade old. I hate watching nothing but advertisements so i can buy into United's overpriced entertainment. The plane itself looked and felt ancient. I couldnt sleep to save my life. And the pilots voice was non existent."
Pros: "Nothing is good about united."
Cons: "Had to fly into Memphis instead of Nashville in order to make my event. United didn't even help me do it, I figured it out myself . Asked for a refund and they gave me $3. Had to drive 4 hours and rent a car for $75 just to make my event on time that I had planned months ago. United is a terrible airline and I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Worst experience of my life's flies. United missed mine and my parents luggage, delivery after 5 days, made us to loose good part of our appointments. Very disappointed with United."
Pros: "It was a very good flight, everyone was happy, so no complaints!"
Pros: "It was simple, straight forward, and easy. Encountered no problems, and the crew was great."
Pros: "Attendant was nice."
Cons: "Unexpected, unannounced delay put us into Chicago 30 minutes late. I was scheduled to have a 45 minute layover, now down to 15. I was given no support getting to my next gate, that plane was not held despite the fact that I ran across the terminal to catch it."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight attendance wasn't so friendly, I felt as if I was a bother to them."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Pros: "My mom is disabled and was flying alone. United was amazing. As soon as I pulled near the curb someone was there with a wheelchair. I parked the car and he waited for me. He already checked her in dropped her bag off and was waiting for me. He said that he was going to take my mom through security and bring her all the way to the gate. I was so relieved because I was not able to travel with her but felt she was in good hands."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The people were really nice. We left on time or early on most flights which was also nice. Like the variety of liquor and prices for beverage that's offered."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment doesn't compare to delta. Our last plane was getting retired so it didn't have any in flight entertainment and the snacks tasted really old. The other flights had spotty connection at best and was hard to connect to their movies."
Pros: "Easy"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and on time"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Entertainment from the 80s. Meaning one TV screen on ceiling. Violent entertainment for kids Uncomfortable seating. No power outlets and very old plane. Reminded me of traveling back in the 80s Adding all this to an 11 hours flight makes it a very undesirable flight. I understand this was a Lufthansa flight operated by United Airlines."
Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."
Pros: "Crew member was excellent."
Cons: "As the ground staff had trouble loading the luggage in to the booty...plane was stranded on the runway without AC... caused unnecessary delay. We missed the connection."
Cons: "Delays in both flights"
Pros: "Nice people working."
Cons: "The weather! And air traffic control!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible flight. I payed for an upgraded seat, list my flight due to a crew on previous flight being late then was put on standby on this plane in a tiny seat next to someone else. We sat on the runway for 45 min. There was an open seat in row 1 that I could have been seated in, but no one offered"
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "attempted to provide too fancy of food; but the options and taste were bad....also, on our trip to London, 1 of our 4 entertainment systems did not have sound and on our return trip 1 of our 4 entertainment screens did not work.....although the movie/tv show options were pretty poor"
Pros: "Flirt wasapearme on time and ver y good tiamina arrival"
Cons: "Snack"
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent and the crew was very carismatic, nice."
Cons: "How the pilot end the flight. The lights were on and I could not sleep at all."
