Pros: "Great crew and amazing food."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."

Pros: "Service and entertainment"
Cons: "On boarding and on time departure"

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."
Cons: "The food. The vegetarian meals were both noodles. And the meals were not very healthy. Too high calorie. I couldn’t figure out how to customize my meals On the Qatar app"

Pros: "Qatar Airways could not be described except a FIVE STARS airline. Great hospitality and respectful crew"

Pros: "Was the crew amazing and nice"

Pros: "Friendly and beautiful crew (specially one air hostess) lol"
Cons: "too long flight"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"

Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Cons: "nil"

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: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

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"

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: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. 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."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs"

Pros: "Good amenity kit. Decent food offerings. Great range of alcoholic beverages"
Cons: "Business class crew were overstretched and inattentive. Had to find my own seat and flag crew down for hot towel."

Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"

Pros: "Not much except the on board crew are nice."
Cons: "The first flight from KTM the TV didn't work and I didn't fit into the seat. The most uncomfortable seat in a long time. The second flight from Doh to JFK was not good. I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."

Pros: "Qatar has one of the best service in the world"
Cons: "Nothing that I ca th think off"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

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: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."

Pros: "The aircraft was new, the flight was empty and the flight attendants were extremely attentive! It was great. Wish I had the same experience on the previous flight."
Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."

Pros: "Enterment"
Cons: "Crew nice alway take care customer"

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"

Pros: "On time departure and nice group of crews"
Cons: "Main food amount is small compared To other long range airlines. Did not offer coffee or Tea."

Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"

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: "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: "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."
Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "Crew were nice as always and the toilets were clean."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't that great and food was disappointing. My meal was cold and unappetizing. Vegetarian food can be delicious and vegetarian meals used to be good in QA. I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."

Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Friendly crew Good choice of food and beverage"
Cons: "Aircraft changed without notice Trapped in cramped window seat No storage bins IFE strobing windows tabs and would not switch off Useless design of chair lead to loss and destruction of my Kindle"

Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"

Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."

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."

Pros: "Real silverware."

Pros: "This plane had lots of room and was comfortable. The food was good and unexpected. The amenities provided was thoughtful and useful."

Pros: "Aircraft clean and crew very personable. It was the second day that refreshments had begun to be served again onboard."
Cons: "Tough to understand the gate agent announcements."

Pros: "We like how delta still has the middle seat open. Makes it feel more comfortable. Also the loading the back of the plane first. Always was a smart idea, glad it’s finally happening."

Pros: "Comfortable and safe flight."

Cons: "THE FLIGHT LEFT WITHOUT ME AND THREE OTHER PEOPLE"

Pros: "Feeling Covid safe."
Cons: "More attention to those not wearing masks properly ."

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"

Pros: "Food on long legs was excellent."
Cons: "Delayed in Atlanta. What’s new?"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."

Pros: "nice crew and newer plane"

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

Pros: "The flight was safe and efficient."
Cons: "The seats on the 787 Dreamliner proved to be uncomfortable AGAIN this trip. 2 years ago we flew the 787 overnight and the seats were the same. Hard cushions, tight seat pitch, and little room to move about."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My reservations were messed up and I had to wait for another flight to my final destination."

Pros: "The check in process was smooth and the flight crew were pleasant"
Cons: "some of the TSA crew were rude/seemed to be doing a lazy job with helping load items on the belt"

Cons: "It was great"

Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."

Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"

Cons: "The food was just ok."

Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"

Pros: "The snacks were decent on the flight. Everything else was a disappointment."
Cons: "Unexpected delay for take off after being told the flight was going to be on time. They couldn’t give us a reason or an eta on take off while waiting at the gate which affected my ride situation once I landed in Seattle."

Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."

Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."

Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"

Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."

Pros: "Loved the in-flight entwrtainment, choice of snacks, movable headrests and plug to charge electronics."

Pros: "The crew was outstanding, polite, and professional."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?"

Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."

Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was great. The plane was great. I would highly recommend Delta over every other airline for travel within the USA."
Cons: "The airport in Minneapolis is ridiculous. If you get a short lay-over, then hope you did your sprint training. I avoid this airport as much as possible. Had no choice with this flight."

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."

Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."

Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."

Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too hot and made for a very uncomfortable flight. The individual air conditioner spewed out hot air. My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."

Cons: "2 hr delay"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."

Pros: "My comfort zone seat"

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."

Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."

Pros: "service and accommodations."
Cons: "Ran out of a meal that I wanted. One flight attendant forgot to hand me utensils with my dinner meal."

Pros: "Happily, the flight was completely non-eventful."
Cons: "The food and snack choices are quite limited."

Pros: "The boarding process in Atlanta was as smooth as could be expected given that it was a full flight. I appreciated the gate announcer's suggestions to everyone about how to ease the overhead baggage crunch."
Cons: "Economy is very tight quarters."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."

Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."

Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"

Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "My non-reclining first class seat was a disappointment on this long flight. The flight was full, so there was no re-seating option."

Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"

Pros: "Captain and crew were dealt a 50 minute delay and still got is to Atlanta 10 minutes early. If I could gove them a cash tip I would."

Cons: "Only the price and boarding was different for this Air France run Delta flight. All the seats (3&3), space and service were the same throughout this plane."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good price. Upgraded to comfort seating without charge since I'm a Delta sky priority flier"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."

Pros: "IT WAS A GOOD TRIP AND THANK YOU"
Cons: "EVERYONE ON THIS PART ON MY TRIP WAS FRIENDLY"

Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Due to the corona19 virus I was not able to travel and the airline phone lines have been so busy that I’m not sure if I will be able to change my ticket."

Cons: "The seat didn’t recline and the entertainment didn’t work"

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

Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."

Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"

Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"

Pros: "Leg room"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and cool."
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Flight crew and food was wonderful."

Pros: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."

Pros: "Super flight and service"

Pros: "The food and crew were great.."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay due to a malfunction on the plane in Frankfurt. Upon landing in Atlanta there was no gate to deplane from so we had to sit on the hot plane for over an hour (still sitting as I’m writing this)."

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

Pros: "Can I say basically everyyyyyything. The meals were amazing with respect to taste and the timeliness of them. The crew was extremely courteous and kind"
Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"

Pros: "Needed to cancel trip - had insurance I thought was good"
Cons: "it sucked !!!!!! someone had to die before they covered cancellation"

Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No entertaintment system. Some crew members did not speak English."

Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "food quality can be improved"

Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."

Pros: "everything was great"

Pros: "Held the plane for late arriving transfers. Good food."
Cons: "Tiny space for 8 hour flight. Men not sharing arm rests or leg room. Really really uncomfortable."

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: "We sat at a very very bad seats. No space for the legs. And when we wanted to go to the rest room it was so narow we couldn't get out or up."

Pros: "I always try to fly with Lufthansa when I do go to Germany to visit my family. At times they might be more expensive then others but you don't pay extra for everything. Also I got a great price at Kayak. The service was excellent and I do love the fact that Lufthansa is now flying directly from Denver to Munich makes it so much easier."

Pros: "Very friendly staff and good was good."
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes on the plane due to weather before taking off and there wasn't much care on how that would impact everyone's connecting flights."

Cons: "Crew members were awful and rude and unhelpful. I landed in Munich and had to run to my next flight and when I asked a Lufthansa staff for help in making my connecting flight he turned to me and said "I don't care-this isn't my problem" upon finally making it for last boarding call to my next flight the staff were rude and unhelpful-I was so stressed I literally had a stomachache and felt completely unwelcome."

Pros: "Again, nice staff. Clean plane. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The games and the book for the teens did not interest my kids. Not sure how popular those items are. Food-not good at all."

Pros: "Everybody was very courteous and tried to accommodate us and our baby!"

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

Pros: "Dissatisfied!!!"
Cons: "See comments above."

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"

Cons: "They forgot the luggage at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("

Pros: "Overall good."
Cons: "Quantity of food served was very less. They could have given more."

Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."

Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Most of the cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff was a concern. Flight departed one hour late. Scanner at Gate Z13 was malfunctioning. One steward from Frankfurt to Dallas was pre-judging my food choice based on how I look. Normally that would not bother me, but he kept asking if I had ordered a Vegetarian or Hindu meal several times even after I confirmed that I had requested the standard meals for all my journey. The same steward on the Dallas to Frankfurt demonstrated the same questionable behavior. Infants on the flight get very noisy and Lufthansa Staff can help by asking accompanying parents to be prepared prior to take off and landing with warm milk in the baby milk bottles which the children can ingest to equalize ear drum pressure. Unfortunately cabin crew is not using this simple technique and the children on board cry excessively with lot of pain making everyone around them very uncomfortable. This can be nerve wracking for all accompanying Lufthansa passengers near bulkhead rows. Frankfurt Main is too dependent on bus transportation causing passengers to get wet on days when rain occurs."

Cons: "I could use some more latest Tamil movies. There was only one Tamil movie available and that too was old."

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

Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"

Pros: "Very good entertaining system plus good food . Crew members taking care about people all the time."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "The staff are so personal and efficient. In a 10 hr flight we had 6 drink services, 2 snacks, and 2 full meals. All delicious. United and Delta could learn a LOT from this airline about customer service..."

Pros: "The variety and ease of use of the entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding was not at all well organized. There were no instructions about what to have ready and the woman who checked our passports was rude."

Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."

Cons: "Impossible to select seats online because of technical issues thus our family got spread all over the plane in middle seat. Our next connecting flight got cancelled without notice so we got booked on the next flight 3 hours later. My complain on their web site after this poor trip has been acknowledged automatically but completely ignored by the customer service."

Pros: "Priority economy class had enough legroom, larger screens, more space to stretch, even water bottle on a side."

Cons: "seats were old and uncofmortable. i asked for coffee which they totally forgot to bring me and the crew was just generally mean and very dismissive. no food at all - could have served a breakfast sandwich or something no entertainment or charging docks. ."

Pros: "The plane stewardesses were actually really efficient (German style). Because of being on the waiting list to get on the plane I couldn't get a seat next to my partner so they did the biggest math exercise to put us together. Props to them"
Cons: "The flight overbooked (I still don't understand this concept, since is basically selling twice the same seat, right? Is that even legal?) Also the system was down, so no check-in online = the biggest line at the airport, it took me more than 1 hour to check-in and drop my luggage, all to get there and the ground force lady (the rudest person alive) tell me that I had no seat available, that she was going to put me on the waiting list... WHAT? I bought my ticket already, waiting list? Well, to say that I highly doubt that I'll book with Lufthansa again."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always and put people at ease even in the midst of a pandemic."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Small seat for first class; no inflight entertainment; terrible meal; lost baggage."

Cons: "The plane was not stocked appropriately- ran out of mist drinks."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The lady at the boarding gate at newark airport was extremely unpolite and with a very law service attitude"

Pros: "My original flight and rebooked flight were both canceled, then this flight was delayed. Even with the extra time, we still sat on the runway because paperwork wasn't in order. It was just a mess."
Cons: "I had to rebook my own flight and considering the plane was already delayed, it should have departed as soon as we left the gate."

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

Pros: "United’s crew were the sweetest. They knew I looked so tired, they took care of me and everyone on board!"

Pros: "Arrived a few minutes later than scheduled but no fatalities or interruptions."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. Earlier flight delayed twice for take off."

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."

Cons: "United's In-flight entertainment did not work."

Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs"

Pros: "They loaded the plane quickly."
Cons: "They don't enforce the carryon bag size. Overhead bins filled with large bags."

Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "no entertainment"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very tight. Not food except snack."

Pros: "Plane was on time and even landed early"
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me held his duffle bag on his lap the whole flight. Take off and landing included. Take off I thought no big deal, but when it was time to land the flight attendant actually looked right at him and said nothing.. When I put my tray down, there was sugar and coffee stains on it. Luckily, I had a wet wipe to wipe it off. The attendants were not very friendly and I was disappointed with them. It just seemed like they were in a hurry. Note this was my flight from Omaha to Chicago. NOT the connecting flight Ord-DCA."

Cons: "No snacks...free"

Pros: "Helpful crew"

Pros: "The United staff I interacted with were some of the friendliest people I'd worked with all day."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed, which meant we'd miss our connecting flight. We were moved to a flight that would leave us in the airport for 8 hours. I called and someone got my onto an earlier flight, but when we showed up at the gate, we found out she hadn't finished the transaction and now there weren't enough seats for us. We were supposed to land in RIC by 2, but by the time we got a flight (which was again delayed), it was almost 10pm. The only helpful person I dealt with was John, who took my call to get us on another flight."

Pros: "Our flight was on time. Economy plus seats were roomy. Also, we had gate checked car seats and the pilots waited to ensure that they were delivered before de planing."
Cons: "My only complaint was that there was no food for sale. We had 2 hungry kids and we only got some free pretzels and a drink. It would have been nice if there was a snacks to purchase."

Pros: "View out the window"

Cons: "Delayed at Chicago for 8 hours before they canceled the flight. It was beautiful & Sunny in both Chicago (depart) & Omaha (arrive) all day. The flight was most likely canceled because of an incoming flight that never arrived. Stayed at hotel on my own dime after wasting an entire day. Completely unacceptable and will never use airline for this route again."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Friendly crew. Got us there on time, despite a late start That included a gate change."
Cons: "Was asked to check my carry on bag, because the flight was full. Meaning they sold the seat I purchased for my wife (who was unable to make the flight). I did so, but when I looked in the overhead bin after the flight, it was empty. When we arrived in Denver, I waited at the baggage carousel, watched everyone pick up there bags, until there were only 5 or 6 bags going around. I then went to a counter behind the carousel and asked about my bag. I was only then told that my bag had been there the whole time I was waiting."

Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."

Pros: "People were very nice and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was rough & delayed"

Pros: "I always appreciate a nice smooth landing."
Cons: "The caramel wafer served with the beverage in flight."

Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."

Pros: "Even though we left almost 30 minutes behind schedule on a hour and a half flight, the pilot made up the time in the air and we touched down 2 minutes ahead of our original time. I know a bunch of people had connecting flights and we're very happy."
Cons: "Departure was delayed for unknown reason, first flight of the day and the plane was sitting at the gate 2 hours prior to it's scheduled departure time."

Pros: "All the staff working for United Airlines are very professional and caring. Wifi onboard was fantastic!!"
