I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk.

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."

We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled my return flight was delayed by 5 hours They made me check my carry on even though it was with in the size limit which cost 85 euros and when trying to ask why the staff was extremely rude and not helpful worst flight experience I’ve ever had"

Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Cons: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."

Pros: "The food was good."

Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "The fast boarding."

Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."

When I received the suitcase, over $1000 in equipment was stolen , suitcase was all scrambled...I WAS ROBBED ! ...then on the return flight to HOUSTON, they lost my suitcase again ! W.T.F ? ! No one has called me to apologize for anything ! I expect to be reimbursed for my loses, or I will sue the airline."

Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very efficient and polite"
Cons: "Baggage folks were not helpful towards anyone. There were a lot of problems and the agents seem to just ignored most everyone."
Cons: "Can’t charge devices. Have to pay for watching movies. Pay for suitcase!"
Cons: "I was seated next to an obese man who was racist and homophobic, and when I asked the flight attendant if I could move to the empty seat next to me because he was taking up a chunk of my seat, I was told “no” because I am not a united mileage plus member. not so nice! If i pay for an aisle seat I expect to be able to “sit” in the whole seat (and not to mention free from hatred)"
Pros: "Staff was excellent. From check in to flight crew. On time and earlier arrival. Unexpected."
Cons: "Unable to bring some carryon. No coffee available on board."
Pros: "Very easy and smooth flights"

Pros: "A comida"
Cons: "As cadeiras poderiam inclinar mais para trás."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."

Pros: "Flight was on-time; no delays; great crew! I also liked the fact there was a person at the gate to let us know where our connecting flight gate was - that was really helpful!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment (archived TV/Movies) not provided (other than through personal electronics); but that didn't bother me - flight between Santa Barbara and Denver isn't that long."
Cons: "Flight attendants were inconsiderate and rude about using the lavatory. Boarding process felt disorganized and chaotic and the planed ended up needing maintenance. Additionally the smell of gasoline as the flight was taking off seems like it's actually a serious health risk no one is addressing."
Pros: "One ground agent worked hard to communicate what decision the airline had made regarding the flight delay in response to aircraft malfunction. His words helped establish a priority on which passages need to be rebooked"
Cons: "Flight Attendant communication was less than professional. Speed, pitch, and I found it generally annoying"
Pros: "Power plugs"
Cons: "No tvs"
Cons: "Customer service is Zero."
Cons: "The seat table was badly stained andlooked like it hadn't been wiped in ages. The sack in front had garbage from previous passengers. It was also freezing cold. Food inedible"
Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "When booking through kyak, we were not informed that we were booking basic economy and all of the restrictions that come along with that ticket. We were not happy to have to check our carry on luggage and not be able to choose our seats and would have opted for a more expensive ticket if given the option"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Cons: "They were cancell my fly let me sleep in airport never fly to united"
Cons: "I fly out of Halifax once a week and the flight has let 4 hours late two weeks in a row with out compensation. I missed my connection flight and was forced to sleep in airport. Never again Delta all the way."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight didn't offer PDE"
Pros: "I have no complaints. On time, easy peasy!"
Pros: "4 hours 40 mins delay."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."
Cons: "We book tickets round trip for 3 passengers, on the way going and come back we never have the seat together! Can someone tell me why? I even ask the counters they don't have any answers for me!!!! We are going as a group of family and we would love to have a quality time together!!!!"
Pros: "Left out of Houston a hour late."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and there was absolutely no delay. As soon as we boarded we were on our way..I was such a pleasant flight with very little turbulence."
Cons: "Day I did not select. I'm furious."
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Pros: "Flight was not very crowded so had room to stretch out"
Cons: "There was no power available"
Cons: "The flight never happened. My flight was delayed 3 times before being cancelled and united could not book me on another flight until the following day. They would not put me in a hotel, pay for another flight or even get me a taxi to a hotel I could stay at over night. I had to book a last minute flight through another airline at my own expense"
Pros: "Comfort alerts to delays"
Cons: "Hate hate hate having to check carry on at the gate There is pkenty of room if enforce the carry on under the seat Do so It is unfair to make later groups pay for selfidhness"
Pros: "1st flight left on time and was comfortable."
Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum."
Pros: "Smooth and efficient boarding process resulting in the flight actually leaving before time.Flight attendants were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise when I was required to pay for one checkin luggage. I am normally allowed one free and felt that I should have been notified beforehand."
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"
Pros: "Red eye flights are always difficult, this one was no different."
Pros: "They got us on their plane."
Cons: "Arrived in Sam Fransico 1 1/2 hrs lay. Middle of rush he!"
Pros: "The customer service agents at check-in. The flying skills of the pilot on the O'Hare to Lincoln segment. The speedy correction of the mistake of sending my luggage to the wrong airport by having it delivered to me in Lincoln, NE."
Cons: "The group announcement at the gate in Newark. The missed connection in Chicago. Sending my luggage to the wrong airport. Flight delays on both segments of the trip over two days."
Pros: "Overall, this was an OK flight; nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The flight attendant told me that I did not need to collect my bag in Toronto and that it would automatically be sent onward to Halifax. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. All United passengers arriving in Canada MUST manually gather their luggage at baggage claim in Toronto and clear customs manually. ONLY Air Canada has this automatic option. Even if the United flight has an Air Canada code share United passengers MUST clear customs manually. How hard is this for flight attendants to understand?"
