Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
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: "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"

Cons: "I was not able to fly"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor service and flight was dirty"

Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."

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 food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."

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."

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."

Pros: "Business class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No WiFi, Poor list of shows"

Pros: "Quick"

Pros: "Attentive"
Cons: "Nothing it was great"

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Cons: "I did a web checkin for my flight number QR501 Hyderabad to Doha inspire of doing a web checkin I had to wait for 2 hours to get a boarding pass. Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option. There was no apology from any of the staff. No one values the time of the people who chose Qatar making it a very bad experience overall"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "Movies collections, friendly staffs"

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: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"

Cons: "I didn't like that I had to get off the plane and then put back on the plane. That was not noted when buying the ticket. That is important information."

Pros: "Comfy, good food, good service"
Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."

Pros: "La mejor atención, buena comida, comodidad, confiabilidad, pilotaje, tranquilidad"
Cons: "Podrían tener más películas con subtítulos en español, jugos mas conocidos y la música mejor organizada para búsqueda"

Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"

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: "Unfortunately..."
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: "Let's just say there was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "I have no comment"

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: "great service, food, friendliness of staff, clean plane"
Cons: "nothing"

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: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Pros: "Crew was very efficient"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding at JAC was done by walking to plane. Signage for the correct plane was absent, and some passengers were erroneously trying to board the wrong aircraft."

Pros: "I appreciate that Delta chooses customer safety over profit by not packing flights and continuing to social distance."

Pros: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection."
Cons: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection. We would like to give a shout out to the baggage team that were able to transfer our bags in such a short amount of time. And also to the San Jose flight that we did for four of us."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The plane ride was smooth!"
Cons: "You should load the plane from back to front since everybody exits the plane from front to back. It is simple school bus rules"

Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."

Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "The planes are made for humans not for monkeys as in some other airlines. Leg space was way better."

Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"

Pros: "Seats and crew were fabulous and the flight itself was very smooth ."
Cons: "This particular plane had no entertainment system whatsoever, big disappointment."

Cons: "it is a shame that for an international trip, with a "superspecial rate" of almost 700 USD. We still had to pay to register 1 piece of luggage. Why are these flights NOT considered international and allow at least one piece of registered luggage? They seem to be considered international when it comes to the ticket price."

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."

Cons: "No free wifi."

Pros: "How can airlines help screaming children?"
Cons: "Screaming child on plane for 30 minutes have me a headache- perhaps flight attendants could offer something like coloring books or stickers to help in the future. When I got too baggage claim the baggage claim not listed. Ticket agents declined to help, so I was walking all over try g to find which claim area to go to which was frustrating."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."

Pros: "Everything, confort, pilot's comunication..taking different route to NY to avoid weather, and wind problem."

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything!! I wanna be compensated for this nonsense I went through!!"

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "Relatively painless."
Cons: "I do not like the seating and the need to be on a regional jet for more than an hour. Delta should think about passenger comfort when they consider their bottom line. You'll lose me as a customer."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable, seated in an exit row. It was an early flight on an A319. Always nice to have free seat back entertainment. Crew was friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was excellent, seating just OK."

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"

Cons: "The crew were not very friendly. They were snappy and were irritated by requests. Often walked past us instead of offering drinks, felt ignored. The TVs did not work properly for many people."

Pros: "Crew rearranged people before takeoff to allow elbow room. Excellent food, salad and vegetable with meat option to help with hydration, wonderful noodle."
Cons: "Slightly too cool but I had an extra blanket and that is preferable to hot."

Pros: "Speed of boarding and de-planing."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "We only had carryons and they took the. From us before boarding the plane."
Cons: "They should tell people that there is delay and that they will take their carry one"

Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."

Pros: "Same as above but even better."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "The seats on the leg of this flight were much more comfortable and there was normal space for feet."
Cons: "The boarding here was completely unorganized. After people had just been in a crowd, they attempted to have people love up, which was futile. Some of the seats were dirty and/or unkempt. The snack option wasn't to my liking and may have been the cause of a stomachache later."

Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."

Pros: "Well organized and in time"

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Service!!"

Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."

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.

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Long walk to gate in Munich"

Pros: "You'r aamazing, great deals! Thank you!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, crew was attentive."
Cons: "The selection of movies was pitiful. We sat and waited for food service to deliver half of the catering order that they didn't load at first. The flight was an hour behind take off time because of late connections And then we had to wait for catering??? Not very professional."

Pros: "Your airline is Awesome. Thank you So much."

Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."

Pros: "Ended up with a row to myself since flight wasn't full and people were able to move to different seats to provide for social distancing."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not operating in any way like there is a pandemic going on. Both overbooked flights. Put everybody too close together and then spouted a bunch of social distancing. All words no action. No sanitizer or wipes offered. No amenities."

Pros: "Flight crew were good."
Cons: "My checked baggage did not make it on this flight even though it was checked in over an hour before the flight. I have been getting the runaround at the Baggage Claim area and on the phone. It may be delivered tomorrow afternoon and I have food items in the baggage and it may not be delivered until the afternoon of the next day. They don’t have a good baggage tracking system."

Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful and flight was smooth. The movie made the trip even better."

Pros: "Great flying great time"

Cons: "My Seat was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "P"

Pros: "Excellent crew and friendly staff on flight."
Cons: "Due to re-evaluate cancellation priority given to guests the rebooking needs over guests needing to make requests about current flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "At this stage, you cannot use such an old plane for an overseas 8 hour flight. The plane was so old it even had the cigarrete disposers on the arm rest and it didn't have TVs not power outlets."

Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "My favorite part was after we all got off, the man helping everyone get their luggage said take one down and pass it down if it’s not yours. It was genius!"

Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no refund."

Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."

Pros: "This leg of our trip was much better than our flight out to Venice on British airways. Comfy seats, good entertainment and clean plane."

Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."

Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"

Pros: "Very nice crew. Thank you. I get to see my family."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Change of gate without notice because of this I lost my flight and I had to stay at the airport overnight the next flight was seven next day and the person out of content wass not nice at all she was so rude that didn’t make it easier for me !!"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "The connection was too short and I nearly missed my flight. This idiot shuttle operator willfully refused to tell me (literally she just walked away when I asked which terminal the shuttle was going to) where the shuttle was going and I ended up at the wrong terminal"

Pros: "The newer plane is the only nice thing."
Cons: "This service is terrible. We had to run and practically knock people over to get to this flight. After being stuck in Dallas at the beginning of our trip. There is nothing organized about this company. And no concern for their customers. We heard different things from every single employee we talked to."

Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "we had to wait for the 4th flight attendant for almost 3h in la. The Crew at the gate wasn't even able to make proper announcements. The plane didn't provide charging stations for your devices, I would expect for a flight like this that you either have screens on each seat or you're be able to charge your devices"

Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Could not get seats together with my husband"

Pros: "This was a great flight! I love the brand new plane, very comfortable even in coach. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. I didn't need my own device to be entertained on the long flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and i have to miss my connecting flight."

Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."

Pros: "New plane, big TV screens at each chair, got a nice emergency row seat."
Cons: "Ground delayed for two hours, somewhat uncomfortable seat, one of our "emergency row" seats we paid for wasn't actually an emergency row."

Cons: "No choice in food. Flt attended said he would try to find a sandwich or snack left over from coach but he never offered anything."

Pros: "Arrived safely and captain had good communication."
Cons: "Gate agent closed door and left the gate at least 15 minutes before departure, so when myself and other passengers arrived no one was there to board us, then she got upset at us. Tray table in 11F was broken. Catering delayed the flight, and never showed."

Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."

Pros: "Standard flight , however I can't believe what most passengers bring on as cabin baggage !!"
Cons: "Evening meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable and considering that they co-share with Qantas , American could learn about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"

Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "Lengthy delay due to a broken seat. Missed connection then the next plane had an equipment issue. Had to deplane after 40 min and wait on a new plane. Every flight has had an equipment issue causing a major delay. I'll never fly American Airlines again."

"Safety..care about the passengers, crew very polite, very roomy and spacious,"

Cons: "They overcrowded a flight in the middle of a global pandemic which shows they do NOT prioritize the health and safety of their customers."

Pros: "Love this airport. It’s clean and comfortable!"
Cons: "I had been told there was a restaurant and there was one tiny coffee bar with little to no food. Most likely covid related but still probably one of the best airports I’ve been to"

Cons: "The remote on the arm rests werent working correctly for the inflight entertainment. My menu button didn't work. It was stuck on ESPN. The armrest is really an awkward set up. I don't want to keep shifting and possibly nudging my neighbor. Wish they touch screen like Delta, American, Air Canada,etc."

Pros: "Fast and friendly"

Cons: "Strange reason for delays"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "More legroom."

Pros: "gate agent helped to get me on a flight at LAX just made it an extra 10 hours"
Cons: "not cancel my flight"

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "It got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "So crowded, seats uncomfortable, wifi not working completely, screaming children."

Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On this particular flight for some reason the crew served food before drinks."

Pros: "Crew was great, accommodating and friendly. Beverage and snack service were on par with other United flights."
Cons: "Flight had issues with WiFi so personal entertainment didn’t work until a few hours into the flight. Although, I was never fully able to watch a movie due to buffering. As for boarding, Honolulu airport terminal is under construction so it made boarding the plane a mess as groups merged with other groups. Not United’s fault but felt it could have been managed better."

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: "Good Movie Selection, food was descent, no screaming children,"
Cons: "Layover in Frankfurt too long; Unable to sleep on flight, nearby windows were open creating too much light, seating a bit too close to relax."

Pros: "Free streaming IFE is nice. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "3 independent instrument failures made us 2 hours late and I missed my connection."

Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"

Pros: "Repairs caused a long delay, they kept us informed but it was a hurry up and wait forever"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Long delays in both trips. 6 hours stuck in Munich & 24 hours in Luxembourg. Asked to get on earlier flight-was told not possible even though 27 seats open. Not possible to check in online and chose seats."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant served a snack and drink, flight was good got us there on time pleasantly surprised thanks United ."
Cons: "Slow boarding process should use front and rear boarding but then again all airlines do it and flight boarded 30 minutes behind schedule"

Pros: "No food or entertainment. Crew very friendly. Tony plane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed making me miss my connecting flight and was not compensated for anything only a sorry"

Cons: "Lost my luggage, ruining my trip."

Cons: "Noisy intrusive kids-clueless parents no help from crew"

Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."

Pros: "Kudos to the gate attendant for enforcing the carry on size limit! She required a passenger with a large bag to check it instead of hauling the oversize suitcase onboard. I wish more agents would be this diligent!"

Pros: "Left on time."

Pros: "The one crew member was excellent"
Cons: "No Tv's for everybody"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No room for bags"

Cons: "Rude staff"

Pros: "But as far as I know, nobody was beaten up by your goons. From now on, I will fly United only as a last result."

Pros: "Efficient and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight still hasn't left"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant under the adverse situation"

Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."

Cons: "I was not helped at the airport and missed my connecting flight to Mexico threw areomexico. No one helped me and was at the gate, i slept in the airport last night with no sign of help an hour before travel. I now have booked another flight back to the city I came from to fly out. Very upset, my confirmation email was not sent to me, and I had no way to oneline check in. Beyond upset and wasted my money flying back and forth to lax to sfo. Kayak did not have a contact number on their website and no one at the terminal helped me. Horror story travel nightmare. I now will refuse to use kayak and extreamly upset with areomexico."

Cons: "I was traveling with someone and the tickets were purchased at the same time but we weren't seated together."

Cons: "Seating is just cramped!"

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."

Pros: "The flight was fine and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Arriving home four hours late due to maintenance issues after a long day doesn't inspire trust in the airline."

Pros: "overall the trip was pleasant, i dont like my 1 carryon be selected to not go in the overhead when groups like couples or families get to take on a few - but i did receive my carryon in a timely fashion considering we were not let off board after 15 min of landing"

Pros: "Will others are not serving food or drinks unless you purchase them, you can count on United fir free drinks."
Cons: "Everything was exellent."

Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff members were, and how informative the pilots were."
Cons: "The seating in the economy class is just horrendous. There is no acceptable reason for a person to pay $200, $300, or even $400.00 for a flight and have to be so uncomfortable. I must say had I known it was going to Be that small I would have driven to my destination probably would have been much better for my knees and thighs. There needs to be a revamping of the seating size and space on these planes. The fact that you have to pay to watch T.V , 7.99, is a bit of a joke."

Cons: "No leg room at all and I'm not that tall"
