And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Got me booked on Delta."
Cons: "Itenirary fell apart and had no good solution."
Pros: "Free entertainment options"
Cons: "4 hour flights should get a little more free food than crackers."

Cons: "I miss the good old days where Captain X tells us what’s seeable out the window!"

Cons: "Waiting for bags."

Pros: "Boarding, service, staff attitudes, on time and deplaning"

Cons: "Seated in 8C on 737-900. Could not strrtch legs as blocked door to toilet in front of my seat. Had one passenger exit the toilet and fall in my lap."
Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Pros: "Easy boarding"

Cons: "Poor services and customer support"
Pros: "the crew was great. there were several high maintenance travelers on this flight. they handled them the best they could."
Cons: "so uncomfortable. my knees hit the seat in front of me (i am of average height). seat would not recline."
Pros: "Without letting me know to a bad one where I had no empty seat next to me I looked to my original seat was given to someone else"
Cons: "Hot cabin"
Cons: "1. The flights within the US and Canada was delayed. 2. The United Airline staff in San Francisco told me to pick up my luggage when I get to Seattle despite of the fact that my final destination was Vancouver. I questioned the staff about this ata this seemed odd, but he insisted that I pick up my luggage in Seattle. Upon arrival to Seattle I went to the baggage claim area to find out that my luggage was already put through to the connecting airline to Vancouver. This resulted in me having to go through a long line of passengers to do all of the security checks again to enter the international airport gates. This almost resulted in me missing my connecting flight to Vancouver. The only saving grace was that the flight was delayed by another hour. 3. Changes made on my connecting flights were only given to me during my check in at Auckland. My previous booking was Auckland -San Francisco - Portland - Vancouver. The boarding pass I was given in Auckland omitted Portland and was changed to Seattle. I was never informed about this by United Airlines. 4. United Airlines website NOT allowing me to log in using my e-mail."
Cons: "Flight delayed 70 min"
Pros: "N/A due to them rerouting my itinerary."
Cons: "N/A due to them rerouting my itinerary."
Pros: "Clean comfortable, friendly service"
Cons: "Again, seats are too close front to back."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculously slow. Why not load from the back row first? Then you wouldn't have 150 people behind one slowpoke. You could cut the boarding process time by 90%."
Pros: "The helpfulness of the representative at HNL."
Cons: "Last minute 17 hr "delay" Screwed out of an entire day in Hawaii. Dream vacation ruined. No car, no hotel, no time to see Honolulu. Awful."
Pros: "We didn't die in a fiery explosion. The flight attendants were nice too"
Cons: "I know that I was in economy, but JEEZ! Everything was super cramped. I don't take up much room, but you couldn't do anything. I had a larger dude partway into my seat, my seat barely leaned back (and would slowly creep it's way to upright anyway), and of course I had no leg room at all, not that I was expecting that. Also, a six hour flight with just a snack offered is pretty absurd. I know cutting corners saves money, but I'm still paying money and it would be nice to have a slightly more pleasant experience. This was easily one of my worst flight experiences"
Pros: "Due to a computer error there was a slight delay on take off. However, the flight crew bought us a tasty beverage for the inconvience. Kudos to the flight attendant as she had a short amount of time to provide our service and did a wonderful job. Thank you."
Pros: "Getting home."
Pros: "3 hous of waiting after our original departure time. Gave us free tv though so that's nice."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Much more cramped than other airlines."
Pros: "From beginning to end my flight experience was great."
Cons: "I requested wheelchair service and on my return flight from Denver the people who assist werected sitting around and I had to walk to the area where they were sitting. The ticket agent did not call anyone for me, although I told him I needed a wheelchair."
Pros: "Things went great"
Pros: "This was the first flight in approximately 10 years where everything worked as it was supposed to. The flight was on time. Our crew were pleasant, friendly, and warm - this has been the missing element for a long time. The new plane was comfortable."
Cons: "I still could not get my PC to work with in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathrooms is gross"
Cons: "The plane was fully loaded and sitting at the gate before take off due to a paperwork issue. Finally departed about 30 minutes late. Upon arrival we were held on the plane for another 20 minutes with the fear of "tail tipping". Grateful that we didn't have a connection to make but really astounded. This is an airline, getting people around is what they do. These seem to be poor planning and execution issues (i.e.- not weather related) ."
Pros: "Dinner and our attendant were great"
Cons: "The movie channels were out in first. Pretty lame."
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "At least it was largely empty"
Pros: "Easy to print ticket, United employees readily available."
Pros: "On time and people nice"
Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Cons: "I am 6' 5" and my wife is 6' and we are both thin. She had the middle seat and I had the window. There was not enough leg room and we were squeezed in shoulder to shoulder. This was for the flight from San Francisco to Portland."
Cons: "The refreshments should be better than a tiny packet of pretzels."
Cons: "It was delayed by 3 hrs"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to me while I was boarding. There was room for my carry on in the overhead compartment but she told me I had to keep my bag under the seat in front of me. There was also an extremely overweight person next to me, I couldn't lean back.I had to ride the entire flight on the edge of the seat stooped over. They should have made the large man buy 2 seats."
Pros: "It's helps when the plane has extra seats"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment that I could see?"
Cons: "It was an enjoyable trip, no complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
