The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

meal portion used to be bigger.

They claimed no fees to change ticket flight yet they made me pay 400 dollars to change the flight date. Very very very expensive for no reason.

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "nothing much"
Cons: "One stop would have been better"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "No hotel room for long trip"
Cons: "Me"
Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Hotel stay on your long hold"
Cons: "Needs to improve in all sections"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."
Pros: "so much service, I turned down breakfast."
Cons: "Leg space horrible. Wasn't even able to fold my legs just a bit, was stuck in one position resulting in severe neck pain."

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."
Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."
Pros: "everything about emirates is what i loved"
Cons: "the airplane was an older model, seats were not very comfortable"
Pros: "Emirates is an airline that knows how to pay attention to the details. Amazing airline."

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."
Pros: "Emirates service is what set them apart. The crew is always smiling and helpful. Makes for a great flight experience."

Pros: "Flight staff was responsive and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Had to sit on pillow and blanket to soften. Entertainment screen did not work properly (would not follow finger movement - seat 45A. I did not tell staff."
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."
Pros: "Entertaimnment"
Cons: "Carry on weight retractions and scattered boarding"
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."

Flight was delayed at IAD Washington. Passengers were anxious as there was delay announcing about it.

Pros: "The staff was very friendly was nice trip"
Cons: "The food was not great"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Cons: "I wish to have little more room on seat for long flight."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."
Pros: "Much better than average meals"
Cons: "more cell phone charging stations at the airport"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."
Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
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"
Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."
Pros: "Worst customer service"
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: "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: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Service was not the same, flight attendants were not attentive or very accommodating. There were very rambunctious children on the flight and they did not consider everyone else by asking the parents to calm their children down instead allowed them to run up and down he aisles screaming etc"
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: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Quite journey"
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."

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"
Cons: "No flexibility in flight changes"
Cons: "Nothing wrong every thing is good"
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"
Pros: "I flew from LAX to Dhaka Dec 18th and had a great experience. Staff was very helpful -- I was given the opportunity to re-arrange my bags, to avoid a baggage fee. Excellent entertainment options. New and comfortable planes."
Cons: "Had a bit of a delay getting checked in at LAX, as they only have one counter, and weren't open when I first arrived."
Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"
Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Pros: "Schedule of flight"
Cons: "Space between seats were smaller"
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."
Cons: "The food in economy class and the lack of interest of the air hostesses."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Non"
Cons: "The delay was awful Al marjan business class lounge in doha don't have good quiet room bed for sleeping"

We had no kosher food

Pros: "I paid for seats"
Cons: "Sure many"
Pros: "Not even a bump ...seriously an amazing plane and pilot!"
Cons: "The afternoon snack was disgusting ....(not just my exclusive opinion)"
Pros: "Nothing. The flight was delayed and I missed my connection"
Cons: "My flight leaving on time"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "It would have been better had we not had a delay of 50 Minutes"
Cons: "The airline lost our bags!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Crew was really wonderful"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and the food was terrible"
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: "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."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled from Nashville to Chicago due to "mechanical issue" so we were unable to get on the flight to Naples. United rebooked us on a flight leaving the next day, and we are currently sitting in Chicago on a 6 hour layover. So no, I am not happy at all with this experience. We are missing a day in Italy and have been charged a day stay in Sorrento which we are unable to use. I have contacted United customer service to see if they can compensate us."
Pros: "Priority boarding for parents with children was a huge help. Provided extra blankets and most of the crew's friendliness was very appreciated."
Cons: "Provided bassinet is much too small for even a 17 months old. Also very hard bedding made it impossible for the kid to sleep. We observed same with the other parents. Alone with that, the height of the bassinet makes it easy for the kid to get distracted. WORSE PART: Our daughter couldn't get comfortable to sleep and got fussy, so I took her for a walk which didn't help much. Since it was bedtime 11pm with 0 to little traffic, and to avoid her crying from disturbing everyone I resorted to one of the bathrooms with her. She did fall asleep for about 1 hour until one the FA came literally BANGING on the door. Very rude even after I calmly explained the situation. So sorry for such people with no compassion nor understanding in their hearts."
Pros: "Excellent service, professionalism, and almost no turbulence."
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable, great food, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The staff tried to helpful but lost at times"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "The flight kept cancelling then company offers indirect flight temptations new flight I had to take 6 hour train I hope Lufthansa compensaye"
Cons: "The flight was 100 percent full. So it was very difficult to move around. And on a 10 hour flight that is tough."
Pros: "One of the crew members, a male, was very nice."
Cons: "•We boarded and consequently landed late, which caused my cousin to miss his connecting flight, coupled with the long customs process upon landing. There was no accommodation given to my cousin so I have to take him back home with me and then drive 2 hours tomorrow morning to bring him back for his new flight. •The charger ports for our seats were not working, which means we were 8 hours + without a phone. •One female flight attendant had a bad attitude and dropped pretzels in my lap after I turned to quickly ask my cousin a question regarding what drink he wanted. •The plane landing was one of the most reckless I’d ever witnessed."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Everything overall"
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "The Staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the seat was cool, txting home while flying was nice. charging phone is always great"
Cons: "seat was tough, food was not fabulous..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve a seat, even 24 hours in advance because web checkin was turned off. Ended up in the middle of the middle on both directions."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Good overall experience"
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: "They were waiting for us even we were running late from connecting flight, everybody was super nice"
Cons: "Seat space is limited and if one is traveling from us to India both the planes have same entertainment channels"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the temperature was fine during flight. They fed us dinner almost right after taking off. The staff was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Almost was late for our flight, because it took us over 1 hour to pass the passport control at the Frankfurt airport. It was terribly organized and understaffed which caused other people to miss their flight. My husband and I ended up running to our gate like mad men and we were the last to board right before they closed the gate. Very stressful and frustrating!!! Other than that the flight was ok. We were surprised that we were served a dinner right after we took off, but the hot entree was bad, so we ended up asking the flight attendant bring us more bread so we filled up on that."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Not on time. Lost luggage."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by 50 min reason was because the flight crew was stuck in a traffic jam from kiev city centre to airport by 1h. the flight crew stayed overnight in Kiev city centre which is 30-40 min drive away from city centre and had time to own accord to have a walk around the city centre in the morning. So I wonder why the crew cannot travel earlier to airport taking into account potential traffic jams. Knowingly I trvaelled to the airport about 2.5h before departure and made it perfectly on time to the airport, even though working in the morning, whereas the crew couldnt make it. maybe Lufthansa should change their crew hotel policy in particular for towns with notorious traffic jams like Kiev.."
Pros: "Quick flight Crew efficient"
Cons: "Slight delay Food was an energy bar type candy No entertainment Seats slightly uncomfortable"
Pros: "great entertainment on monitors at seat. kept us full with two full meals and a snack. came around with beverages often. seats very comfortable with leg room and reclining"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "The food was terrible. Your seat space is exceptionally small. I am small but others of greater stature cannot really fit and then they encroach into my space. Makes for an uncomfortably long journey. Your attendants were most attentive."
Cons: "The food, food, food."
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section. Food"
Pros: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Cons: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Cons: "I have flown with Lufthansa before and this is the first time I have had a cabin crew be rude. She came over to ask me if I wanted to switch my seat with someone and I said I enjoy my window seat and the middle seat she wanted me to switch to makes me feel castrophobic. She then proceeded to role her eyes and just walk away. It was very rude and disturbing of her to do that to a passenger. And on top of the rude service, my chair was not reclining causing the flight to be uncomfortable. I feel as though I have to think twice before traveling with Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Airline people all very professional, welcoming, courteous."
Cons: "Almost missed flight from heathrow to Newark. Previous flight was delayed. No airline personnel at arrival gate in heathrow. Finally had to run from the after the multiple security and passport checks, for about 15 minutes and we were the last to board, before they took off. Huge risk of missing the flight altogether."
Pros: "The lady on the counter was very friendly & helped me to rebook another flight to Frankfurt early next morning."
Cons: "Flighing from Nashville to Washington for 30 minutes & than have to turn around due to weather."
Cons: "After we realized our flight was cancelled we were trying to reach Lufthansa but couldn't for a long time. It was very frustrating. There was nothing we could do on their website either. No alternative flights were offered, no additional information about how and when we can fly home. We had to stay one extra day on Salzburg since this was the only option given to us by Lufthansa when we finally spoke to them the next day. This experience with Lufthansa was absolutely disappointing and we will probably never book with them again."

Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

This flight was fine.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"

Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Cons: "I cannot even begin..."
Pros: "Food was good and service excellent"
Cons: "The plane was very unconfortable"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, service excellent and smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats in front tilting back."
Pros: "Entertainment system was ok but selection limited compared to other airlines. Crew was friendly and unobtrusive, nice for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Hate the fact that you have to pay at least $41 to reserve any seat before 24 hours before flight time, even the worst seat on the plane. Seats in coach are very narrow and poor padding makes for an uncomfortable ride or over 7 hours."
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "Only direct flight from Nashville to Europe"
Cons: "Ground staff is clumsy, boarding is messy and unorganized. They need to go fly somewhere and see how a plane should be boarded. Seats are cramped, comfort level only so-so Not a bad flight but below average"
Pros: "Because someone was sitting in my seat, I was moved to one near the exit which has more legroom, without having to pay £28. The flight was on time and we were kept well informed of some chaos that was happening around push back."
Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Pros: "Pilot was great in bad whether."
Cons: "Pork sausage for dinner, we couldn't believe it!! Not a enough food provided to the flight so we got what was available. Our first family vacation to Europe and had a awful experience for my family."
Cons: "Had to circle London twice because we were way too early."
Pros: "For an hour and a half flight all went smooth."
Cons: "You can even offer your passengers a cup of water? We arrived three (3) hours before departing. Check in was so slow, and disorganized. We know it's a short flight but after a (2) two hour of check in, those Italians don't break a sweat so. offer just a cup of water!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and dated entertainment system"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Pros: "All but one of the FAs were amazing. Very kind and patient with the kids on the plane. The plane was also very quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The food was super greasy and not good. My daughter wouldn't even eat her Mac and cheese. The overhead voice is very quiet and hard to hear. I didn't hear most of anything that was said other than the safety briefing."
Cons: "Iberia airlines, operating for BA, refused to honor the tickets we had bought via Airfare .com. Would not let me fly!!!!!!! After several hours they found a way to put us on a later flight--got in late, had to stay overnight in Orlando. Don't understand!!!! Wife and I are in 70's--spent 22 hours trying to get home!!!"
Cons: "Could not get seat assigned until I was at the gate. Same thing occurred on the way to Edinburg. Not sure what the issue is but it happened both ways and was a problem."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

I wasn’t able to make my flight because my first flight from Nashville (BNA) was delayed for mechanical error (someone’s chair wasn’t able to stay in the upright position), so when I arrived to New York/Newark (EWR) the connecting flight was gone. Since it was the last flight heading to Norfolk (ORF) that night, I had to be rerouted to Richmond (RIC), which is a 90 minute drive to my home. I will admit the lady working the counter was helpful in getting me that replacement flight ticket and put me in first class. Although I think there needs to be someway of halting a connecting flight if the previous leg is delayed. Yet I can see that would probably start a chain reaction of missing times, which helps no one. I just wish it were avoidable, but thankfully I arrived safe after all the headaches. The replacement flight got delayed too, but that’s because it was arriving late and held the crew for the flight I was getting on, but that’s a story for another time…

Shortage of labor resulted in a one hour delay in take off waiting for baggage to be loaded. With a one hour layover in Denver we nearly missed our flight home - very stressful!

Everything was good. Snacks were a disappointment.

Horrible

Pros: "Seats were amazing"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue so we missed our connection. Still in the states a day later trying to get to Paris."
Cons: "Very crowded and had to take the rear seats but otherwise OK."
Pros: "On time. Efficient on and off plane. Didn’t hassle me about my carry on."
Pros: "Nothinh"
Cons: "The flight crew’s non challent attitude"
Pros: "There were too many people. It seems United is trying to put more seats to make more money. Giving more uncomfortable to passengers."
Cons: "The company forced me to put my luggage out of the plane, which I found strange. On my first flight in this roundtrip they let me have my carry-on without any problems. If they are going to have policies, they should be standards and they should stick to one thing instead of doing different things in different flights."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth."
Pros: "The second lady that helped me, Michelle Reilly, was SUPER helpful. I am so thankful for her"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight"
Cons: "I'd rather use a different airline that allows you to watch the tv monitor on the back of the seats for free. Delta allowed it and they were great."
Pros: "Easy access on boarding"
Cons: "United took over the first 2 flights before final destination they try to charge for everything food , entertainment , etc etc with copa is different"
Pros: "Gate agent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Missed my connector."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and helpful. Our flying experience went off without a hitch. It was one of the smoothest flight experience I have had. I also liked the text alerts and the prompt updates on the app."
Cons: "Nothing! It was great!"
Pros: "The service was amazing."
Cons: "It was a bit difficult to navigate my way in Munich but the staff was helpful. I would suggest a 2 hour layover."
Pros: "Friendly staff, bags were received quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "40 min boarding delay, didn't have a phone charge at my seat."
Pros: "Finally getting to SEA"
Cons: "The Captain kept lying to the passengers why we were delaid ! Finally after 40 minutes sitting on the ramp he came on and apolized for telling us the wrong information but actually what happened was someone loaded all the luggage in the aft baggage compdartment incorrectly and they had to reload the the bags and move then to the forward compartment This certainty didn't give you a safe feeling knowing there ground crew didn't know ho to load there plane correctly! Another reason not to fly United Airlines! Everett Johnson, Bellevue Wash."
Pros: "Newer aircrafts"
Cons: "Delays delays"
Pros: "Nonstop BNA-SFO"
Cons: "United Economy Plus bulkhead was awful. I was seated in seat 7D - there was no bulkhead for me or middle seat - just a curtain. The screens and tiny pockets were only accessible over another passenger. The seat stuck out into the aisle so I was bumped by 200 other passengers at least once - not to mention the flight crew. Finally I had my emotional support dog with me and the crew told me I should. It be in that seat - the seat was assigned by the United Accessibikity Desk as a good one for a service animal - and I had zero choice in the matter. Baggage claim at SFO took over 45 minutes to start -I was home in San Francisco in only 20 minutes after getting my bag."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Snack pack, Direct TV, more leg room"
Cons: "Flight was a little rocky on landing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were bumped and cancelled our reservation"
Pros: "Great experience. No hitches."
Pros: "I received my prepaid tickets, passed easily through the TSA checkpoint, and arrived safely on time at my final destination."
Cons: "N/A, no really, everything was enjoyable."
Cons: "Still sitting at the airport. Flight delayed :("
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They changed my seats."
Pros: "The flight was prompt and smooth. Flight crew was nice and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats seemed too tight. Uncomfortable if you're tall."
Pros: "The airline offers a pretty good entertainment selection if you have downloaded the app."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting on repairs, the idea of purchasing airline food was annoying. I feel something should have been offered to the passengers as a reprieve."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full and the staff allowed me to change to a larger more comfortable seat."
Pros: "The option to control my personal tv."
Cons: "Bad service. I was ignored when I it was time to order a drink. The attendant scolded me for using my service button. I wouldn't have used it if they hadn't entirely skipped my row. There were three of us sitting debit cards in hand to order drinks. The same attendant was very rude to a family with a small child and a man trying to put away his baggage at the start of the flight. I will avoid united in the future if possible."
Pros: "Staff was pleasent"
Cons: "Had a delay made me 2 hours late"
Pros: "I like the personal device entertainment system -- it really helps to pass the time"
Cons: "The flight was late by an hour. There was no food and the seats were okay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Didn't clearly explain my flight so I missed my flight !"
Pros: "The attendants were super nice"

Pros: "It was good for most"
Cons: "Was good"
Pros: "Very decent legroom onboard....flawless connections....pleasurable. Flight crew were responsive, friendly, and professional."
Pros: "I liked that the flight wasn't longer."
Cons: "There was a group of noisy, obnoxious women on the flight. They annoyed all the passengers around them, but the flight attendants never asked them to settle down. Then served them alcohol which made the situation worse."
Pros: "Not friendly personnel"
Cons: "Very rude flights were both delayed for not having a crew and problems with plane in the connection was very short time"
Pros: "That your seat is assigned"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "Overall everything was well conducted. the seats were comfortable and the flight attendants cordial and welcoming."
Cons: "We were a bit late boarding then sat on the tarmac for an extended period of time only to be told that we were headed back to the gate for inspection. They didn't tell us up front what they were dealing with and there was an odd sound and for a few moments the smell of jet fuel wafted in. It was frightening, especailly since the noise persisted and there was no further information offered. When we were set to get back on the runway we were told it was a cargo door that was the issue and that all was well. I would have appreciatted being told what the nature of the problem was initially so that we could know if it was mechanical, engine related etd."
Pros: "The seat that I got"
Cons: "I would expect having a entertainment screen on my seat on a almost 6 hr flight in 2016!!! Wouldn't you????"
