Airline reviews

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 being ontime"
Cons: "Seats are too hard"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"

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"

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Departed on time. Courteous staff."
Cons: "I had a continuing flight in first class but was not allowed entrance to the first class lounge."

Pros: "The Crew was only Alright this time, not has attentive jas the first Time, but still good"
Cons: "Overall IT was a great trip, but the Seat are still the best Selling point for business class, not vert confortable for a 7h et 12h flight"

Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."

Cons: "see my words above. it is bad tryout with your site. there no responsibility. i am very upset about your negligence of your clients."

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 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: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Pros: "In time me ,food ,clean"

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: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Theyt cancelled my trip"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"

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: "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."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

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: "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: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

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"

Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."

Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"

Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"

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 during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

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

Pros: "Food is palatable. Crew are acommodating"
Cons: "Many of the films have no English subtitle"

Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall service excellent"
Cons: "Seating... our seating was changed so we did not sit how we would like"

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: "So far nothing. Plane from Ukraine was delayed by 2 hours and we missed our connecting flight to Washington DC. Now we have to spend a night in Istanbul and missing the event that we had to attend on Feb 26!"

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow, uncomfortable ."

Pros: "The food was good. The staff very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"

Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent meals, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Istanbul airport- needs major refurbishment"

Pros: "Paying only half of what other USA airlines offered we had a one stop trip from (IAH) Houston to (TLV) Tel Aviv and were served two meals with offerings of other food if needed. I don't know what was served but it was good yet very different from what we eat in Texas. Then we had a 2 1/2 hour layover in (IST) Istanbul Turkey which gave us plenty of time to get off the plane, shuttle to the terminal gate then walk around the airport for about an hour before heading to the next gate for our connecting flight. The crew was very pleasant and the flight very smooth."
Cons: "The landing in Instanbul Turkey was very poorly done, by far the worst I've ever experienced but the rest of the flight and connecting Turkish Airlines flight to Tel Aviv was great. The seats are very cramped but not much different than any other economy seat I've had on any other USA airline. The price of the ticket more than made up for the seat."

Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."

Cons: "Leg space on this flight was less compared to other flights I had with TK."

Cons: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"

Pros: "Food was great, flight was on time, clean plain, great interior, great entertainment."
Cons: "Really limited leg space. I'm 5.9 and felt like I was a giant, couldn't stretch. Ordered kids meal at the time of ticket purchase but due to some reasons that crew could explain there was no food for our two year old. They offered a regular meal which my son did not want to eat. Crew was not super friendly and that seems to be the norm for this airline. Limited s"

Pros: "amazing !!!"

Pros: "THE FLIGHT ITSELF WAS GREAT. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COMFORTABLE FOR A 12 1/2 HR. FLIGHT. MY WALLET FELL OUT OF JACKET AND WENT UNDER SEAT, AND THE MAN BEHIND ME HAD TO HAVE TAKEN $400.00 FROM MY WALLET BEFORE I NOTICED IT WAS MISSING...AND ONLY GAVE WALLET BACK WHEN CONFRONTED LEAVING PLANE."
Cons: "FELLOW PASSENGERS WERE NOT THE BEST. CREW WAS EXCELLENT."

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Cons: "slight delay on the outgoing leg"

Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. and i really like the food they serve"

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"

Pros: "The crew were very nice al of them."
Cons: "The seats were to close to each other, so when you watch a movie on the screen it was very close that it will hurt your eyes if you keep watching the whole movie."

Pros: "Decent entertainment system, reasonably priced in-flight wifi, decent food and friendly accommodating staff."
Cons: "Boarding process can be a bit chaotic, but they do well to organize it by groups or seats/rows, so still miles better than any US carrier."

Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats was a lil tight , food was a lil warm not hot"

Pros: "To small area for passengers after security before boarding"

Pros: "The service I received on Turkish Airlines was excellent. I live in rural Rwanda and it was really nice to actually sit back, relax, and not worry about getting to where I was going. The staff was courteous and friendly and even let me keep my can of tomato juice. These may seem like small things to you but it made me feel at home for the first time in over a year and I want you guys to know I truly appreciated it. In addition to that, the flight was actually affordable and I was able to make it to New York to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday. Job well done! Thanks again and best of luck! Sincerely, Emily Hardy"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Food and drinks was good."
Cons: "More movies in Russian language, or with English subtitles"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Cons: "Mine crew 2 ladies"

Cons: "It was great"

Pros: "Everything thanks"
Cons: "Awesome thanks"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "All things were beyond airline control. Screaming children, weather delay, and moderate to heavy turbulence. Wind shear off the deck required pilot to punch through and stick the landing, but recovers well."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight cancelled due to a technical problem, missed connecting flight."

Pros: "Beautiful plane, economy seating more generous than normal, excellent in-seat entertainment (easy to navigate, more options than I've ever seen before). Well done!"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Crew was super attentative."
Cons: "Nothing, they tried hard to make sure everyone felt they were available to take care of what they needed and when they needed."

Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"

Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."

Pros: "Everything was dood"
Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Gate changed ast minute so we had to walk a long way to get to it with 3 kids. Airplane with no entertainment at all. Also the worst was getting to Beirut without 2 of our bags. We got one of them 1 day later and the second 5 days after. When we got the second bag few of our things were gone."

Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Boarding by rows or areas would be better than the masses all at once after 1st class and business."

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well in MXP, however both were approved for the cabine. Due to the late departure our luggages missed the connection so they left our luggage behind in MUC"

Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."

Pros: "Toilet facilities"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Easily the most comfortable I've ever been in TATL economy. Lufthansa's 747-8 is set up strangely: the main deck is arranged First - Business - Economy - Prem. Economy - Economy. This means that if you can book a seat in the forward economy mini-cabin, you get dedicated cabin crew, no other passengers walking through your space to get to the bathroom, plenty of bin space, and – best of all – a lot of aisle space to stretch your legs. Row 16 aisle seats are especially good, as the bulkhead between J and Y doesn't extend all the way, and therefore you can stretch your feet out. Food was actually excellent (for economy), hot and flavorful and generous, with snacks available mid-flight. Beverages also tops – gotta love Lufthansa for offering Campari (!) and more than one wine choice."
Cons: "Entertainment (music and movies at least) was up-to-date but not very interested. Boarding and transit security in Frankfurt was anxiety-inducing – between getting to the US departures area and additional screening, it took more than an hour from deplaning to getting in line. Boarding w/o group numbers was an exercise in patience. And the terminal wifi is so spotty!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Cons: "Missed flight due to customs they gave vouture then took it back because i booked threw kayak it made it more difficult to change i even obtaijned insurance"

Cons: "One of the restrooms was out of service for most of the flight. The other ran out of toilet paper."

Pros: "Borading Flights on time Crew Confort was just ok."
Cons: "Food. Very bad. Tasteless. And not much food provided. Emirates have more dishes and many servings. ENtertainment: Not many regiional movies. Overall movies are very few."

Pros: "New plane, good food, nice attentive crew, on time"
Cons: "Seats and seat space are shrinking, s not super comfortable."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "The big deal for me was that I was upgraded (at no cost) to Premium Economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg room and the ability to lie back (further than in regular economy class). The free drinks were also a plus."
Cons: "The only thing I can remark upon is that because someone in front of you can lie back so far, it becomes difficult for the person sitting in the window seat to leave his or her seat without disturbing the person in front of him or her."

Pros: "This leg of light was good. Service on board was very good."
Cons: "no complaints."

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

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

Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."

Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."

Pros: "Food. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding by row would have been better. All of economy boarded at the same time."

Pros: "My husband is very tall and had enough legroom to make him comfortable."

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

Pros: "The seats are hard and we were packed like sardines in the back rows. Wish that they would pass out water more often, we were dehydrated and also cold. Choice of movies were ok. The kids movies were the best"
Cons: "Seat co figuration is awful especially for families. Got very warm on the pls rand then very cold."

Pros: "Really NOTHING!!!"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy I had to search if my flight was cancelled due to. Lufthansa pilots strike. I'm not enjoying to still wait to find out if I have a flight to get back to the States on Monday because my flight was cancelled. I'm really annoyed to get this survey since Lufthansa should know there was NO flight to LA today!!!"

Pros: "The airline staff for Lufthansa were kind, courteous, and respectful! As mentioned, haven't flown in 30 years, let alone, never overseas, and I couldn't have had a better experience; especially being in economy seating! Would fly with Lufthansa again in a second, and recommended them to friends on Facebook!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

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. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Pros: "In flight entertainment, food good, wine free."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit tight when passenger in fron reclined."

Pros: "Service was great , flight attendant very courteous"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was just a short hop, no complaints."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Sat in the middle of 4 people for a long flight...was not able to sleep at all."

Pros: "Smooth flight & everyone was friendly!"
Cons: "More flights options"

Pros: "flying in and out of COU is the best"

Cons: "Flight left 2.5 hrs late. Had to wait on tarmac 45 minutes then had to change planes and run to other end of Chicago airport. My friend was in a wheelchair so extremely inconvenient."

Pros: "The food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats felt a bit too cramped."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything! Arrived 5 hours latter than expected"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the cabin was comfortable."
Cons: "No change required."

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

Cons: "Hold time on tarmac. Over an hour. In a hurry to board people. If they knew they had a delay due to weather they might have done some better planning"

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: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"

Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."

Pros: "It was okay."

Pros: "The flight got us back home alive."
Cons: "mechanical delays in Tokyo with only fair communication especially after we were in the plane."

Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "Seat cushions were old and hard to sit on in excess of an hour. The don't look worn out, but certainly no one is asking. Not very comfortable for a four hour flight."

Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."
Cons: "The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was delayed on two flights and ultimately could not make my connecting flight to Tokyo which cost my company a lot of money. Spent hours on the phone with very poor customer service support trying to locate my bags and get me to my destination. Far more of a headache than I have ever experienced. Will never fly united again and will be more wary if ANA is a pattner airlines with them"

Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I wouldnt know"
Cons: "I didnt like that I was charged almost a full month after the booking and wasnt reimbursed for ANAs fuckup"

Pros: "That I got a direct flight to my destination! Which I've never had before."
Cons: "That there was an hour long delay. What if I had a connecting flight?"

Pros: "Missed connection to RDU"
Cons: "Had to pay out of pocket for a hotel to catch next flight to RDU"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Couldn't even get me a slightly better seat given all the hassles I'd been put thru up to that point."

Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."

Cons: "Late departure with no explanation. Had to walk outside in freezing snow and rain. Miserable."

Pros: "I liked the cleanliness. The use of wifi was great."
Cons: "Didn't like that there was no tv access"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "For the second time this trip our seats were changed and we were separated seating both of us with strangers after we had chosen our seats at the time of the ticket purchase"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"

Pros: "Staff was great, friendly, and accommodating"
Cons: "Upgraded to first thinking i would be more comfortable and have a decent meal...wrong...seats were so blown out that my butt and back were in pain most of the flight. Caught food posioning from the rice pilaf. I dig that united offers inflight entertainment through your phone but its annoying that i have to hold up my phone i watch something but now I'm just nitpicking."

Pros: "Entertainment system cannot function on Android 5.0 and above. Likely due to Flash which is an Antiquated software that cannot adapt to Android. Won't catch me on any United flights any time soon."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."

Cons: "the flight was scheduled to get into Phoenix at 8:18. We didn't get in until midnight. That was a horrible experience"

Cons: "I upgrade to premium economy. This gave me a seat with legroom -but one that did NOT RECLINE ... on a night flight. I am very unhappy. It was not made clear when I upgraded (must have been very small print). I feel ripped off"

Pros: "Great flight. Crew was also very helpful and we landed early at IAD. What more. An you ask for?"

Cons: "It never left"

Cons: "My luggage was lost"

Cons: "Why is it that an a thirty minute flight I can watch entertainment on my own device but when I am on a two-hour flight with a TV in the headrest that I'm not able to watch anything without paying for it first? I've already paid for the ticket, I don't want to pay for freaking a movie too. Especially after having a three-hour layover and having the gate change 3 times on me"

Pros: "The"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work. The plane took off late, we were in the plane for over 8 hours and the movies kept dropping. I will never fly in United to Europe again. Our flight attendant was very slow, the other side had their food like 10 minutes before us. When it was our turn she was out of chicken. We were four traveling together and purchased our tickets at least two months in advance and they didn't seat us together."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Pros: "On a 4+ hour flight, food and entertainment should be free like the "old days""
Cons: "United, should take the LEAD, and bring back the glory days of air travel. It should not be all about squeezing every cent out of ticket prices. Respect air travel!!!"

Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"

Cons: "Recent airline corporation consolidation has greatly reduced consumer choice. The surviving major airlines, in their effort to cut costs, sacrifice quality control and assurance. Pittsburgh's status as "no longer a major hub" was on full display here. United needed to have customer service agents available on site, but they did not. The review could easily turn into an essay on United's complete failure (ask the remaining passengers who were supposed to be on the PIT-IAD), but such a review would not change the state of affairs in the airline industry. I will be contacting United reps to lodge an official complaint."

Pros: "Crew was great. Affable, service-oriented, friendly, accomodating. They made a long flight a pleasurable experience."

Pros: "Snack options."
Cons: "No entertainment as No tvs and no wifi was available. Even the Delta App was not working."

Pros: "The communication via Kayak was great in notifying me there was a 25 minute delay."
Cons: "Not seating with my kids but they loved the sense of independence."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "united was very rude to me. they charged me twice for the same ticket and never refunded me that money."

Pros: "That despite leaving late we arrived on time."
Cons: "The delays due to unorganization."

Pros: "Loved the amenities."

Cons: "Kind of hard to comment or rate a flight that we never made due to a three hour delay. Oh and it happened on our trip on the 16th too. Today after being 3 hours late and waiting 2 hours in line - had to spend $200 to rent a car and DRIVE 4 hours home at 1130pm because we all have to be to work by 9am! NOT HAPPY"

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly and staff was nice"
Cons: "The plane temperature was freezing! My whole body felt numb by the emd of thr flight, I was so congested I could barely breathe and I started to have a sore throat :("
