Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"

Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "Good was not good"

Same as my other review.

All luggages got lost, one of them had my dad’s 3 month supply of medicine (hence we had to check), and none of the Lufthansa nor United customer service have been helpful. This is outright horrible… Will always try to avoid Lufthansa whenever I can from this point on

We didn't have right seat.. No kosher food

Cons: "I got overcharged for a bag $230 Dollars, both planes were delayed, the supervisor Danny at Ohare was horrible, will never use Lufthansa ever again!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."
Cons: "Had to wait in tarmac forever from Frankfurt to Florence"
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."
Cons: "Food was OK, could have been better."
Cons: "Best flight ever! Plane was so empty everyone had their own row to stretch out in! Crew was excellent!!"
Cons: "2 hours Delayed and operated by United ..."
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."
Pros: "Check in was easy, flight was smooth, had good seats with legroom. Liked receiving updates on phone."
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)."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Pros: "It was great."
Pros: "High quality service, attentive flight attendances, as always on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"
Cons: "Needed more option in sports. Specifically Cricket"
Cons: "no tv and long flight. Food was terrible."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
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: "After the delay I was given a spot on the direct flight so I didn't have to deal with the complications of the connecting flight. The staff was nice and helpful."
Pros: "Appreciated pillow, blanket and headphones on each seat. Served edible dinner on a 10 pm flight."
Cons: "Movie selection was subpar."
Pros: "The meal was very delicious and had a good selections of different movies. The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Very long delays"
Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."
Cons: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "First of all, the boarding took an hour longer than it should have been so we all sat in the plane dripping with sweat, because it was 100 degrees in Houston and the plane didn't have A/C on until we took off. Food was not good, some mysterious meat they called beef stew and veggies with strange texture. We ended up drinking more since the food was bad. The entertainment choices were OK but the equipment was a bit ancient, my husband's screen ( we sat in the front where screen pulled out of the seat) was broken and was held by a duct tape(???!!!) The seats are small, I have flown with other companies on transatlantic flights and their seats are bigger and more comfortable in economy class."
Pros: "Free wine; flight was on time; movie and TV shows are good; crew gives out water constantly. I prefer Lufthansa over any other airline."
Cons: "I do not like the big metal boxes that take away your leg room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delays and cancellations required me to go through security 4 times, deal with 4 different check in agents (at 3 different locations) and 2 international calls to Lufthansa customer support before being able to rebook my ticket. It took 3 hours to get rebooked, and just barely made it to the new flight. Lufthansa Agents at airport were rude, would often make me wait while they did other things, and then just tell me that they couldn't rebook me, and I needed to go to another line."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An hour late"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Super staff!"
Cons: "The crew we had was very impatient and irritated quickly. The flighy attendent name was Jorge. Starting at the beggining of the flight before we took of I asked him about the head phones. One child had one on tye chair and I asked him if its suppose to be on the seat or given later on. He said it will be passed later and then with a patronizing manner he gave another head phone set and said: "I guess we havw an emergency". On the flight, every time he with the food and drinks he just stood there next to me talking over my head with the passenger begind me. Very uncomfortable, especially when it happens 6 or 7 times. When asking what drink we wanted ( the first time), i replied apple and orange juicewith no ice. He replied, with a patronizing manner "this it European company, not American company. Here we don't put ive if you do not ask for it".The incident that bother me the most is one that involved my kids also. My daughter (3 years old) was a bit scared of the flight, tired and did not want to sit on her chair. We tried to keek her on the chair buy she started crying laying down on the floor infront of our seats. Jorge the flight attendant saw her and told me to put her on the seat. Not in a manner I expect out of soneone in the service industry. I told him we are working on it and we will have her on the chair as soon as we can. When I said that he got irritated and a bit aggressive. For no reason the situation became hostile. The flight attendent on the other side (do not know his name). Can over and asked us what we needed amd if we need help. I told the other flight attendant we need 5 minutes and he said OK. After a few minutes she calmed down. Anotger passenger asked Jorge what beer it is and he replied, with contempt, " its German beer, its good"."
Pros: "Even the hot food was sweet."
Pros: "I flew round-trip in Business Class from Munich to Kiev and then back to Germany via Frankfort and both flights were on time. The dedicated business class check-in line and advance boarding process was smooth - as were both flights. The cabin crew on both flights were very good and all spoke English well. My chief complaint is with the European Business Class seating model (3 across with center seat empty) - which does not afford much more leg room or seat pitch than in economy class. On the plus side you don't have to get in a fist-fight with anyone over the overhead bin storage problem since there are less people in business class and hence more storage space."
Cons: "The "European business class model" is not that great when you are paying a premium price to ride in Business Class. I think the prior 2 x 2 arrangement on each side with larger (and more comfortable) seats...plus more legroom and seat pitch...is preferable."
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Pros: "Late flight with no prior notification. Caused us to miss our connection."
Cons: "The seating was poor. The armrest did not go up even so I and another passenger tried hard. I then had to climb over it to be able to get to the washroom at 86 that was not the easiest and again it should not happen regardless. Otherwise I was treated well.I was a wheel chair passenger for medical reason. Thanks Helen"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Cons: "I am tall and the seats are too close together."
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Cons: "We couldnt fly because our name was in different order and they didnt want to change the order of our names."
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."

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 --

Did not have a good experience. They gave us connecting flights from London to Washington and then to Atlanta just because their flight was delayed from Hyderabad to London the flight from London was missed and even though it’s not passengers fault they had to suffer as they couldn’t give direct flight from London to Atlanta. And for vegetarians food is also so pathetic they need to have more vegetarian options as cold sandwiches is not a good option in winter. And just think how they feel if they have to be eating 3 cold meals for 24hrsin winter.

Pros: "Crew.. single person was okay. Overall company operation plus late flight was poor"
Cons: "Luggage handling could be better. Flight on schedule will be good."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
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!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Cons: "This was a really old plane. The screens were really small And was so scratched and messed up that it was almost impossible to use . I was never offered a choice of breakfast before I boarded and I could not get what I wanted. You do not offer enough space fo list all my comments. Very unfair"
Cons: "BA is löst. This whole experience for a first class flight was a joke. SF no Lounge, food terrible, london lounge max BC level. LH 2x better, they need change"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Cons: "British Airways lost my ski bag. I had plenty of time with connections and feel there was no excuse. I had to wait in line over 30 minutes to report, thus missing my train. I'm 4 hours behind in travel and who knows when my ski bag will show up. I am very upset."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration BA is using in Business class. The staggered seating with 50% rear facing makes griping in and out of seats"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
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."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Everyone went the same time. Had to come in via a small queue and then wait for the gate to open."
Cons: "No food or drinks given at all for free. You had to buy even a soft drink. Not a good experience at all. I waited and bought fast food at the airport after the flight."
Pros: "American Airlines is kicking your guy's butts when it comes to comfort."
Cons: "Tiny seat for international flights is nearly inhuman! I became an overnight contortionist sensation whether I liked it or not."
Pros: "We were given a voucher for our meals ."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after all passenguhaf boarded due to some mechanical problems. Big issue with hotel accommodation."
Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"
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."
Pros: "The flight to London was fine."
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: "Seats were comfy, good choice of films. Food was good."
Cons: "There are other airlines with a brand I associate with more. Any airline can get me to London for more or less the same price; I may as well do it with a company that aligns with my view on life."
Pros: "The staff helped me board and get better seating."
Cons: "There was only one meal through out. A few snacks here and there."
Pros: "Cabin crew from London to Heathrow was pleasant. Movie choice was good."
Cons: "Ordeal at Heathrow of going miles up and down, taking two transports and having to go through full security again for connecting flight. Checked in 24 hours to connecting flight to London or 30 hours prior actual flight from London. Airline indicated that plane had only one middle seat. Tried to get a better seat at airport, but BA ground crew did not even check and said flight was full. Yet my one of my fellow passengers was able to get window seat without extra pay 3 hours after I was denied. Sardine city for 7 hour flight that turned 8 hours."
Cons: "very little food! chairs r too tight and tv screens r rediculously small... no usb adaptors to charge ur phone, no toilette seat covers!"
Pros: "The food was tasty."
Cons: "flight was 1 hour and 40 minutes late. We sat on a hot plane waiting for take off and the temperature remained too high during the flight. Very little water was offered. Seating in coach was very tight."
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At check in desk , i have been told that the ticket is suspended and cancelled !! I asked why ? She replied : contact british airways !! I was waiting more than 45 minutes standing looking for a solution before i miss the flight , until finally , i called the customer service( 25 minutes waiting) in LOndon , where they explained to the boarding desk that they should check the credit card to release the ticket !!!!"
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Cons: "Checked 3 bags. 65 euros each. I think you own this one."
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"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks or soft drinks offered unless you paid."
Pros: "No turbulence!!!"
Pros: "Crew helpfulness, food bit better than flying from houston to london"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable, old screen, even though ba offers great selection of movies etc, i can't barely see a thing on old screen. I flew from london to houston last year same day of week & time; they actually had new dreamliner this route; I don't understand why they replaced with old plane. :( disappointing."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
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: "Safe flight arrived early!!!"
Cons: "Crew seemed non friendly. Did only what was required. Seats were tight And very cramped."
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"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "Good job"
Cons: "With the exception of delays due to thunderstorms all was excellent."
Pros: "The level of service and appearance of employees. The entire staff was very attentive and offered assistance multiple times. The airplane was clean and kept at good temperature which is a plus because other airlines don’t put focus on this."
Cons: "Our seating could have been placed in a better range. We had a party of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) our seating was split sporadically, the 2 adults were split and placed in two different rows next to 2 other single individuals. The 2 children were placed in the back rows. Same rows next time!!!"
Pros: "Served food"
Cons: "At first the flight attendant seem rude. Bad 1st impression."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff and entertainment"
Cons: "Comfort, seats felt tight"
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Horrible seating, small, cramped, ergonomically impossible"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."
Cons: "Small plane. Pay to play movies. Dated entertainment options."
Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Not a lot of foot room"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "There is no TV. They give you free United wifi that you can use if you have a device to watch movies/TV on, but they don't have any outlets to charge the device, so it's kind of pointless."
Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."
Pros: "Delays because of fires , had to wait in line close to 90 minutes but when we finally reached the ticket counter the agent moved took great care of us and we made to Boise only an hour late even with all the delays and confusion . Excellent job , one of the better customer experiences I’ve had flying !"
Cons: "Paid extra for carry on,couldnt sit by my wife,no screens but even if there was you now have to pay for an inflight movie,sucked"
Pros: "It's only an hour flight"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with no explanation or communication given for over an hour. Uncommunicative crew."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline."
Cons: "The crew at the gate was really rude. Zero customer service. She raised her voice at us and another customer who was charged $50 for our carry on. Not only was the flight delayed for over 2 hours. We were not informed that we could not bring a carry on even when we were at the main entrance with an agent for over 30 mins when you entered the airport. All their staff needs new training everyone kept on giving us a different answer. We asked because of this delayed will our room be comp due to the fact we will be missing our connected flight. On the phone the agent said yes. When we got to the airport that agent said no. When we got on the plane that agent said no. When we landed in Denver that agent comp our room. We ended up booking a room making sure we had a place to stay at night. It created more work for us because we were trying to cancel our room took even more time. Definitely wanted to give United the benefit of the doubt that they were at least at the level of American Airlines. The last time we flew United it was delayed for 8 hours they ended up canceling the flight. When we called they said it was the weather and we told that agent it's mechanical issue because we are watching someone remove the engine. We will stick to American Airlines. Free entertainment."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew member working at the gate told the lady next to me "get in line if you'd like to complain" regarding the continuous delays. Crew member let us know that united was aware of our delay ed take of 4:05 rather than 1:00pm several hours before yet, We were only informed through notifications in increments of 30 minutes. be transparent with your customers, the delay would have been much less frustrating had we known. Instead notifications every 30mins were teasing us that we're about to leave but it's clear united had not intention of taking off. Also crew member on board serving beverages "I need your money" is an extremely unprofessional and inappropriate way to ask for a card."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That my return flight was canceled with no notification after I missed my first flight. I ended up getting a new flight and was never informed that my return flight was cancelled there for when I got to the airport to return home I had to buy another $600 ticket. After buying a new ticket when I missed my first flight (my fault, I know) but I really think I should be compensated for this inconvenience and the lack of notifying me whatsoever."
Cons: "We were in first class first row, the crew kept talking and laughing during the entire flight (this is a 5 hours flight and we landed at 5am). Loud and banging the trolleys (why, everyone is trying to sleep!). We asked them to not speak as loud, but to no avail.... asking for a glass a water was a no no, you could clearly see they were not there to help you... The entertainment system was a vintage tiny TV which did not work well anyway (loss of image...). The seat was half broken. Not sure where the first class experience was. United please do something... Start first with your employees. Send them to Southwest for training..."
Cons: "I thought it was ridiculous you had to pay to watch tv despite there being a monitor in each seat. That was the first time I've encountered that on a flight."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "safe"
Cons: "They where late coming for about 30 minutes and going back it was late 3 hours. very frustrating for picks."
Pros: "Pilot and stewards were upbeat and cheerful."
Cons: "sfo had shut down a runway so we were 3 hours late."
Cons: "I was told that a transport would be available upon landing, it was only there for first class patrons. We landed 20 minutes late due to maintenance issues and I missed my flight by five minutes. I feel that united could have expedited my departure from the plane."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was polite and accommodating."
Cons: "After zone 2, no passengers were allowed to carry on the allotted amount of luggage. Boarding took a long time, passengers were rude, and the gat agents didnt notify anyone of the flight status until 30 minutes before boarding time. This changed three times."
Pros: "Being a red eye, they were too busy congregating among themselves and chatting away.. when requested for a beverage, the service was as though they were doing a big favor and the guests on-board were disturbing them..!!"
Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "Flight back was delayed 10 hours and my daughter was stuck at airport and had very little sleep . Upset about this experience and won't fly united ever again"
Cons: "The check-in staff was dismissive and unhelpful when I arrived past the 45 minute bag check cut-off time due to traffic. No help getting a bag check refund even though I paid for it a day early. Come to find out that the gate staff was courtesy checking everyone's bags anyway, and they took it with a smile. Those fools at the front were content to take my money and tell me to somehow mail my luggage to my destination (not possible since the flight was boarding in 35 minutes). There needs to be communication with the check in staff regarding courtesy check ins."
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped-didn't pay extra for upgraded seating , in back row. Horrible"
Pros: "No kids and quiet"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Cons: "Seats are too small no leg room"
Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"
Pros: "LOVE the plane! CLEAN!! New and BEAUTIFUL!!!!"
Cons: "Sat and listened the WHOLE trip except when drinks were being served to the private lives of the flight attendants. The didn't pick up trash so everyone had to place their ice and semi full drinks in the nets when it got bumpy for the landing. I watched the flight attendants the whole time- they got paid to converse about everything- here is proof- one flight attendant was complaining that she only had 4 days of vacation and that she never gets called to work- I think I can guess why- and that she has talked to Kaitlyn- I think that was her bosses name?? But she wasn't given more hours. I wish I had ear plugs. The African American lady was so unkind and uncaring. She scollded another African American lady for coming to the back to throw away her trash. She hurt the lady's feelings and made her mad too. The folks on the plane seemed to be too much of a deflection to their personal conversations, but they were successful at ignoring everyone. We had to be careful to not spill liquid on our carry on etc and not hit the cups and such with our knees on the way out. I usually fly Southwest and want to write a letter telling them how great their service is! I apologized to the cleaning crew as the flight attendants told us to not worry about our drinks"the cleaning crew" will get it. How unprofessional to treat others that way. Stop talking! You can get A WHOLE lot done when you aren't sharing your personal life and opinions with each other!"
Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"
Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."
Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Pros: "The service was good, the workers were doing their best to calm everyone down"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as well as my connecting flight."
Pros: "Both flights arrived early."
Cons: "I spent 8 hours waiting for a connecting the scheduled time was less than one hour"
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"
Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."
