Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Cons: "Screens (for in-flight entertainment) kept freezing, not as much legroom as previous flights (BKK-DXB, DXB-SIN, NBO-DXB) on Emirates"
Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "The boarding process was very light and smooth . There weren't many pax though."
Cons: "A small smile by the S. Korean cabin attendant whilst conducting the service would have made the flight even more pleasant."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The entertainment system, the items handed out for our comfort, the food, the attention."
Cons: "The problem which happens when the person in front of you leans back his/her seat. It makes watching something on the entertainment system very difficult!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "Staff is very attentive and always around. I am not a fan of instant coffee, but I got a cup of coffee when I asked for one outside of "meal times". The leg room is good, though I could still use a little extra."
Cons: "I wish the crew asked all passengers to reset their seat upright when food is served. I am quite tall and having the person in front of me recline is uncomfortable at all times, but while eating, there just isn't very much elbow room. Also the temperature in the cabin is really too cold. The entertainment system uses a two-prong plug for the headset, which requires you to bring an adapter if you want to use your own noise-blocking headset or headphones."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive. didnt respond properly"
Pros: "Food and tv"
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "In flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Had requested for wheel chair assistance but was denied saying everyone was " too busy". When the passenger stated she cannot go without help, the flight attendant helped her out and to a bus. She almost fell while getting on to the bus. Assistance was requested because of her poor eye sight on the left eye and issues with mobility because of that. Although I'm glad nothing bad happened, denial of assistance and making her feel concerned and speak for herself for someone to help could have been avoided if Emirates could keep their promised support. Very disappointed."
Pros: "ALL seats were super comfortable, the LCD screens were like suer HD! Crew was warm and everything was just perfect!"
Cons: "Crew didnt know about baggage transfer procedures from Emirates to JetBlue (Dubai - Boston _ pittsburgh). Knowing this shall ensure 100% customer satisfaction."
Pros: "Excellent service and attention, good food, new plane with better air circulation and space"
Cons: "Crew members are very arrogant at passengers they will not respond quickly .Food is not at all good"
Pros: "Spacious seats..comfortable flight and great on board service"
Pros: "Emirates is my favourite airline. I find their service to be above and beyond other airliners I've used"
Pros: "Everything was done by staff to ensure comfort for such a long flight. I was very pleased!"
Cons: "nothing in particular."

Much much better than Alitalia or Delta

I had bought a ticket with two checked bags but when I did the check in they made me pay for the second bag saying it wasn’t included in the ticket. Plus, I had asked for vegetarian food when buying the ticket and they didn’t gave me special food. Don’t know if it is eDreams fault or Turkish Airlines.

Pros: "Food on the second leg ( Istanbul to Delhi ) of the journey was good."
Cons: "Poor Boarding In Chicago, no lines were formed to let people board in an organized fashion. Insufficien/inappropriate food ( BEEF Prevented choices ) - Eliminate beef from your food choices. Many people like me can eat Non vegetarian meals like chicken, fish , EXCEPT BEEF Ran out of the Salmon fish dish. I was given a snacking cheese sandwich instead! This would not have happened if you had selected other than a beef dish! Cramped seating. The airlines greed shows in picking out the seat placement design. The plane had extremely limited knee room. I'm five foot five inches tall and my knees were almost touching the seat in front."
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"

Pros: "excellent"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were not good."

Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and regular drink, hot wash cloth, and food."
Cons: "Bringing a hot wash cloth around just before landing after flying all night would be refreshing. I think it would give people the next best thing to a hot shower. I should have picked an isle seat. I was on a 10 plus hour flight and felt trapped and my isle guy had his headphones in or slept all but one small break in that 11 hours. I felt abit claustrophobic."
Cons: "Lack of space for over 1.95m person, uncomfortable seats (seat can not be adjusted because the button was broken for the flight over 10hours!), old fashioned seats, no usb to charge any device."

Cons: "Wasn't able to go due to the coup and I haven't heard back from anyone and have not received a reimbursement. And when I call it takes more than 30 minutes to reach an actual person."
Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."

Delayed flight, no explanation as to why. Took too long to Exit plane! One would have thought there would have been a rush to get us off…🤷‍♀️

No ear pieces for entertainment.

All 8f rhe main dishes in business class had cumin or other sharp spices which I can not tolerate

Pros: "The crew was very professional and polite, my flight attended (blond lady) was very pleasant and very professional. She should be promoter to teach others how to be professional without kiss passenger's a*s."
Cons: "Could be better if the check in line employee were be able to sell one way ticket to Boston at 13:20hr , instead I had to purchased round trip just to get at my destination at planned time. Also I had to pay 30 dollars to go get the next flight at 18:59hrs , which was extremely inconvenient."

Pros: "Clean first class seat."
Cons: "My connecting flight, and the the flight not being delayed the night before."

Pros: "they let me drink the whole can of soda..."

Cons: "Timing"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"

Cons: "Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Nothing... no movie, no food, just awful."
Cons: "I decided to cash in some miles for first class, what a waste. Never book first class on delta flying a short route, it’s just not worth the money. The flight attendant had the ATL attitude, if you know what I mean."
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."

Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time."
Cons: "After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late."
Cons: "It was it little confusing that I booked with AeroMexico but it was really a Delta flight."
Pros: "Customer service was great"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

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

Delta remains the best."
Cons: "No power to charge"

Swift clean friendly on time

Okay

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "."
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."

Less over zealous woke flight attendants. Never again ! I felt more like a prisoner than a passenger.

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "The Free glass of wine was a very nice surprise."
Pros: "Entertainment included screens in front of every seat, plus tv/movies over Wifi on my iPad, with a good selection."
Cons: "The extra security line in Panama was slow and painful, and they dump you into this very small waiting area once you're through it."
Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "No wifi or in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "United Airlines has really gone downhill"
Pros: "It went smoothly"
Cons: "No service"
Pros: "Our flights arrived just in time, and everything was set up for us to be on time in our destination."
Cons: "There was just ONE lady trying to check all the passengers in. Obviously, it was complicated for her since no other people tried to help her registrate lots of passengers. We could have lost our connection flight, if she hadn’t made it on time. This happened in Panama."
Cons: "You didn't get my bags to airport on time and so I missed my connecting flight which was 90 minutes after my previous flight, I have an 8 month old son and you made us spend another 4 hours waiting for a flight."
Cons: "There is not food and not entertaiment"
Cons: "There’s non food!"
Cons: "The boarding process."
Cons: "Flight arrived early but we had to wait over an hour to disembark and bathrooms were locked down."
Pros: "I like COPA more"
Cons: "Very little communication at the gate and 4 hours late. No offer of food vouchers or future travel vouchers."
Pros: "Pilot made up for delayed departure by landing only 20 minutes behind schedule."
Cons: "45 minutes Delayed departure. Pretzels and drinks were only provided in a 3 1/2 hour flight..."
Pros: "D"
Cons: "Not enough choices for dinner. It was salmon yuck"
Pros: "The crew on the United flight were kind and helpful during the flight"
Cons: "The change of the departure of my flight The miscommunication between airlines No customer service of united airlines in Panama during transit and not being presented with all the boarding passes when checking in. The old business class seats were very uncomfortable. Having no help from representatives to issue a boarding pass"
Cons: "We should be able to watch a movies without having to pay for internet or the movie what else are they gonna take away ?"
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Cons: "No outlets"
Cons: "I paid for power, entertainment and dinner and I got none of that. My legs were FAR too long for sitting there. I am a disabled vet, the whole trip was PAINFUL."

Cons: "Horribly rude. She even cursed at another passenger."
Cons: "very old and awfull plane"
Pros: "The employees work good."
Cons: "No food for almost 6 hour fly, no tv."
Cons: "Ive never flown with United Airlines internationally and now that I have I never will again. I had just flown with COPA airlines from Colombia to Panama and it was great. I thought I would have a similar experience with United, but alas it was not. You have to pay for movies and food on an international flight?! what is that! terrible terrible"
Cons: "Bad, bad, bad"
Cons: "Flight was aborted on the runway, we were returned to the terminal, and flight was delayed over 6 hours."
Pros: "Boarding to the United, was smoth"
Cons: "Menu; Menu selection was none except for a sandwich. The crew was not friendly at all. Courteous by doing their work, but not friendly and welcoming at all."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Seat flight comfort"
Cons: "TSA, food was bad in first class,"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 5 hrs. I was supposed to arrive in Charlotte, NC around 10pm. I didn't get there until almost 3am. My flight was due to leave at 630pm didn't leave until 1130pm. I called united airlines to try to get another flight but the agent said there were no other flights to Charlotte. I had to change terminals from B to E. while waiting there were many flight delayed by United Airlines. The pilot said that our flight was delayed due to crew issues/not enough leaving Mexico. We were also delayed from leaving IAH because we had to wait to board because there was not enough flight attendants. This trip was a inconvenience of my time. I should be compensated. This was ridiculous! I will never fly United Airlines again. #getittogether #hostageairlines"

Pros: "Unforeseen delay was well managed by United!"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment ($7.99 for long flights) not good at all. The crew didn't offer to check/ review the menu. Ps: in my flight Houston- Panamá city the entertainment was free through the united app. Also,there was free wifi during my flight ( very good)"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "Crew was professional , courteous and tried the best they could with a full plane"
Cons: "Two screenings in Panama , carry on luggage rule constantly being abused , smell of the cabin"
Pros: "Organization for boarding and the seats. The staff was awesome"
Cons: "Snacks the waffles is to sweet so early in the morning!"
Cons: "I was very displeased with the boarding process in Panama City. We were moved from the boarding area without explanation and asked to screen our luggage again at the gate. I had to discard a full bottle of water that I purchased after the first security check. It would have been nice to know about this before so that we could consume our water and use the rest room before boarding. Very frustrating!"
Pros: "Boarding was nice and fast"
Cons: "Rude crew, bad seats, unfortable seats"
