Airline reviews

Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"

Pros: "comfortable seats. Crew was friendly. Food was good."
Cons: "cannot think of any. I am Qatar airways fan"

Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. The seat was as comfortable as it could be for economy."
Cons: "No complains. Qatar has always been my preferred airline."

Pros: "Quality aircrafts and entertainment."
Cons: "Service and helpfulness of attendants."

Cons: "I wish to have little more room on seat for long flight."

Pros: "Very efficient and comfortable flight."
Cons: "The airline appears to have done away with the courtesy pack, and this was the one time I was travelling without ear plugs!"

Pros: "Helpful,courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Wifi was hard to connect"

Cons: "Very poor meal for vegetarians on one flight (toasted veggies on a tiny round bun)."

Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."

Cons: "I get the safety thing with the window blinds but wish if it was 40 degrees outside they would let you close them until the plane takes off"

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

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "I was really impressed by how nice caring and wonderful were the flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! Great food!!!"

Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Food was excellent."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "everything went perfect , tank you KAYAK"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"

Pros: "Wonderful services"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

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

Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."
Cons: "It was a confusing boarding procedure. We were sorted into zones, but boarded late. So, folks tried to get on all at once. We were in zone 1, and should have been the first economy on, but others just pushed past."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Pros: "Worst service from hyd to doha"
Cons: "I have travelled fro hyderabad to miami,i had a bad experience at hyderabad air port at qatar counter for baggage Please baggage standards should be unique across all airports travelling from miami they accepted the laptop bag plus 7kg small trolley cabin luggage In retun journey qatar pople said laptop and small trolly bag should be of 7kg .my laptop itself 6kgs is there and they charged me 65usd as excess luggage. I said iwas not charged extra at miami why you are charging extra here ,they said rules are different at miami but in hyderabad this is the case I am very much frustrated on this service ,atleast once in a year i will travell on qatar from next time i never prefer to travel on this carrier. Thanks a lot for great qatar servic"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Pros: "Excellent aiways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "When it was time to leave Doha, Qatar there was a massive delay which caused us to be late for any upcoming transfer in BKK. That told me that my would be delivered the next day. I am currently trying to figure out whether they have my bags or not."

Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Cons: "Only issue was long transit line in Doha, otherwise outstanding service and comfort"

Pros: "everything especially the vegeterian food choice."
Cons: "everything was excellent"

Pros: "on time, good planes, no problems, good food and service, bags arrived quickly, what else is there to hope for?"

Pros: "Plane is good, seats are comfortable, crew were ok"
Cons: "Food was aweful, you should have like fruiets or somthing for ppl who doesn't like the food, it smelled indian food to me both ways, asked for fruite or snack, they never got back to me after they said we don't have any, but will check, again never came back to me, went after an hr. to the kitchned to find out there was a tray of chips and chocolate, buttom line i was starving both ways from the food, was realy nasty (sorry). If your customers are lots of indians, maybe a reminder for hygiene and picking nose, the man next to me drove me crazy from picking his nose and i told him not to, bath room door they leave it open, limit the indians."

Pros: "Crew wax amazing"

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive ."

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

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."

Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "So nice to still fly on a comfortable seat and with great and friendly service."

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "The environment was good and clean The food was on time and fresh"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "OK flight"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I missed the first segment of my flight due to an accident and traffic on the way to the airport. I was asked to pay $1200 to get on to the next flight (without any warning that my subsequent segments will be suspended) so I bought an one way to Dubai from NYC. Then my subsequent flights were all suspended and I had to buy a new set of flights for the remaining of the trip. I didn't get to take any of the flights I purchased through Kayak."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"

Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"

Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "Doesn't"

Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."

Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."

Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"

Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"

Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."

Pros: "Good multi media access and content"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."

Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"

Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."

Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."

Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco).

Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"

Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears.

Cons: "Old plane."

Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."

Pros: "Courteous crew"

Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"

Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"

Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"

Pros: "Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "Nothing much to add for a short journey."

Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."

Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "leg space in plane"

Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice to me. TV was very good. space was enough ."
Cons: "We had to pay for wi fi."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."

Pros: "Standard stuff"

Cons: "Too crowded"

Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."

Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"

Cons: "Small leg space"

Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."

Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"

Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."

Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."

Cons: "When flight is delayed (by taxing for 45min or delayed take off of 3h40) allow passengers who are trying to connect disembark first."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"

Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."

Cons: "It was United. Enough said. They stink, especially after having flown on Lufthansa overseas. The United flight had zero leg room."

Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."

Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."

Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"

Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."

Pros: "The prevoarding was fine!"
Cons: "I was sat next to two verge large people that smelled and farted before pushback. One finally got up and left to sit somewhere else. The flight to SFO was fine until landing when they missed the landing and took an extra hour and 15 minutes to get to the gate. Passengers were scared for their lives! I was terrified at one point due to the lack of knowledge shared with the cabin!"

Pros: "Entertainment, and leg space."
Cons: "Full plane, long wait to use lavatory. Crew was good, but should have upped their game under the circumstances, especially with regards to keeping the lavatory clean. The noodles for breakfast turned out to be porridge, and went straight to the waste basket."

Pros: "A+"

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"

Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"

Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"

Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."

Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"

Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."

Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. The flight also arrived early."
Cons: "If you're going to offer personal device entertainment, you need to offer power outlets. How is that not common sense?"

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."

Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."

Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."

Pros: "Arrived 1 hr early"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."

Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."

Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Almost everything"

Pros: "personal service"

Cons: "Nothing was fine"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "My husband and I were given seats in different rows. When you book two seats together they should be next to each other"

Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
