Rued and unhelpful airport staff when asking for directions. Food is really bad.
The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!
once again everything from the boarding process to in-flight service was impeccable.
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "everything was decent"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Cons: "There is nothing to improve. I wish other airlines can learn from them."
Cons: "Keep employees have to give excellent service & smiles to passengers"
Pros: "A vast amount of entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew was not the best. Some were very forgetful and did not return to provide us with drinks with our meal. Some did not ask passengers to raise their chairs during meal time and we were constantly forced to do it yourself."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I did not get the seat that I booked online. This made things a little hard for me."

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Cons: "Screens (for in-flight entertainment) kept freezing, not as much legroom as previous flights (BKK-DXB, DXB-SIN, NBO-DXB) on Emirates"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."
Pros: "The overall experience was good."
Cons: "The non-veg food option was limited to a prawn dish only which may not be a good option for all. Should have a chicken or goat meat alternative."
Pros: "Food ,seat,everything was just great"
Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."
Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."
Pros: "All are good."
Cons: "Served vegetarian, I am very happy."
Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."
Pros: "Loved the in-flight entertainment options. The food was excellent. They managed my gluten free options with ease and everything was delicious. The attendants were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I paid for the higher wifi bandwidth, but the service was spotty and some websites/social media wouldn't load. Even some texts wouldn't send. I wish there was more legroom between the seats for such a long flight. But the value for the overseas flight was still quite good."
Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "Was a very average flight from Dubai to Kuwait nothing special."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how great our travel with Emirates was. We usually fly in business class when traveling to Europe, but this time we were pleasantly surprise that the economy on our flight was as good as business on most American airlines. We are looking forward to another flight with Emirates!"
Cons: "Everything was great, I can't think of one thing that disappointed me."
Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew and decent food. Good infotainment although I couldn't find live TV in the Menu."

Pros: "First of I was bumpedI to business without asking. I appreciated ho attentive the flight attendants were. I also enjoyed the gourmet airline food."
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised when my whole family received a business class upgrade The services on board was excellent."
Cons: "Check in at he Jeddah Hajj terminal is chaotic"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed a total of 6 hours. We were notified of the original two hour delay but we sat on the plane for hours due to plane trouble. This is in addition to the actual 8hr flight. Very unpleasant experience which is surprising for a reputable airline"
Arrived early. Smooth ride.
Timelessness could improve greatly. And for a coast to coast flight, the food options were very limited in my opinion (goldfish, 1-pop, and only water after that).
Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…
Delayed departure due to short staffed security at Burlington Airport. Missed connection flight. Terrible customer service at Delta. 7 hour travel day turned into a 24 hour travel day.
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Last second gate change was confusing and poorly communicated"
Cons: "The exit row 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Kind staff, comfortable seats, movies, easy flight - pretty much everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing- it went very smoothly."
Pros: "The airplane looked old. There was no entertainment available on the flight from AMS to SVO, but definitely more leg room then the newer airplanes. No having entertainment available made it a very long flight."
Cons: "No entertainment available."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Cons: "Ear buds that allow me to hear the movies clearly; better equalization of the treble, bass and volume. I had to constantly turn volume up and down because of fluctuations in the movie sound track."
Cons: "No WiFi. Little service."
Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."
Pros: "Emergency exit window seat"
Cons: "Punctuality 7hrs delays over 2 flights is unacceptable Ruined the first day of my trip"
Pros: "Smooth sailing"
Cons: "Small bathrooms, difficult to access."
Pros: "The Grand junction staff is always great."
Pros: "Crew members on plane were fine, but crew at JFK airport needed training in customer service skills."
Cons: "Big delay because no running water in bathrooms, which caused me to miss 2nd flight. Seating was ridiculously tight. Check in online was problematic."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."
Cons: "Multilpe delays"
Pros: "Food was good and so was the movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the interviewers were disrespectful. Also I was upgraded last minute and I could never understand the system by which upgrades to first class are granted. Just because I used my points to buy the flight I wasn’t eligible for an upgrade to the one seat left in first class even though the flight is full and I am the first one on comfort+ upgrade list and there was no one on delta one upgrade list."
Pros: "Entertainment on first flight"
Cons: "Food, no smoking at Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "Awesome selection of movies"
Cons: "The seats are too close together, they do not recline far enough and the leg room is minimal"
Cons: "Delayed, gate agent trying to rebook not super helpful"
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"
Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Cons: "Delayed boarding as the first flight of the day"
Pros: "Delta is always running behind."
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. I have been traveling 13 hours and am still not in London."
Pros: "We had 35 minutes from landing in MSP to takeoff for BOS. We came in on gate C20 and our departure was for C5. The gate person could not confirm the gate so we hailed a vehicle to take us. The driver added 2 more to our cart which slow us down appreciably. We got to the gate and they hadn't started boarding. My wife went to the Ladies Room and I walked over to the desk. The boarding flight was going to LA!! Our flight was going out C11! I had to ask a woman to go into the restroom and yell for my wife to get moving! We made it but I don't know how. Typical Delta!!!!"
Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Flight left on time and got in early. This allowed us to catch an earlier flight to Seattle."
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable in delta comfort zone."
Cons: "My flight from Veracruz to Mexico City was canceled at the last minute and the entire itinerary was changed without notifying me. I found out the night before I was supposed to fly and spent over an hour on the phone with Delta, on and off hold, only for them to tell me there was nothing they could do and that I needed to call Aeromexico. Which I had already tried. Aeromexico stated I needed to call Delta. The back and forth was absolutely ridiculous and made even more difficult by the language barriers. There was a 6am flight that I could have been placed on in order to make my original connections, but by the time the Delta took me off hold, they told me it had been booked up. Instead they had automatically placed me on a flight 5 hours later, with a 6 hour layover in Mexico city, then to Las Vegas, and on a redeye to Charlotte (absurd considering my original itinerary had me arriving in to Charlotte at 9pm with reasonable layover times)."
Pros: "Actually, the entertainment was non-existent. It's a fairly short flight on a commuter jet, so there is no entertainment system."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Food and entertainment were not applicable. Short flight. Rest went smoothly.
Flight delayed. Crew excellent. Airlines are struggling amid shortages of staff. Be prepared to have flights canceled or delayed.
Boarding was done extremely poorly. Landed in Newark only to find out that a plane still loading in baggage was occupying our gate. Creating another ridiculous delay when there are many gates I’m sure we’re available since they have the entirety of terminal C. No excuses united.
Super old plane. Needs updating badly. Great crew. First class experience seriously lacking these days- a whole can of ginger ale and crackers? Disappointing.
We were late getting to our connecting flight. The flight crew was immensely helpful in getting us on the plan and on our way home.
Pros: "good crew. plane was showing of wear. torn pockets and worn out seats."
Cons: "newer aircraft or refurbished one."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"
Pros: "I liked the free in ight movies which makes a 5 hr plane ride a a lot more enjoyable. Having 2 rounds of free beverages was also what I liked. The seats are comfortable, plenty of leg room, love that there are plug/ports to charge you electronic devices."
Cons: "What could have been better especially on a 5hr flight to Honolulu would be free wifi, free meals, if not free meals then 2 rounds of snacks, and I know it's out of the airlines control, but families with their screaming babies who's parents leave the tray down to keep their toddler entertained so she could kick it up and down through out the flight. I feel the airlines should place families with babies and toddlers together on a portion of the plane."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "No room in the seats at all"
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Cons: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connections in Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night. United airlines did not even give us a voucher for a hotel this causing us to spend more money. We will now arrive in Amsterdam a whole day late missing our check in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue so we missed our connection. Still in the states a day later trying to get to Paris."
Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Just waiting in line to get on a plane. Pretty easy."
Cons: "No problems with the flight from Dallas to Chicago. Very quick and easy flight. Chicago to Paris was a bad experience."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Cons: "Captain was 1 hour late, then wasn't prepared with a gate when we arrived in Seattle. I got home 3+ hours later than I expected, and I have a short vacation time."
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Seat too narrow and not enough leg room"
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."
Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "Other then they got me there safe, I dont think there is anything I liked about this flight. Pilot did a decent job, there was lots of turbulance so nothing they could do about it and I made it safe."
Cons: "Plane from Chicago to Savannah was small. I was all the way in the seat not slouching and my knees were crammed in the set infront of me. The arm rests were digging into my thighs as well. Im used to not much leg room but this was a first for how crammed in I was into a seat, Im 6'3" & 270lbs. Ive probably been on 50 different planes over the years to give you some perspective of my experience flying when I say this was a first and a very uncomfortable plane. The plane to take us to Savannah arrived so late it pushed my flight back by like an 1.5 hours from what it was supposed to be."
Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"
Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "The temperature inside the plane was nice. The stewardists did well."
Cons: "Why are planes loaded so erratically it should go first class then back of the plane to front of the plane. I had to check my bag cause everyone is put on the plane randomly the over head compartment filled up and I had to check my bag. I specifically packed to only have a carry on not a check bag. Carley"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "This is the 4th time flying United and every time I experienced a delay and disorganization after delays."
Pros: "Everything. We were held up in traffic and United was so accommodating. We were in awe"
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."
Pros: "We were not sitting together the agent was able to sit us together. Not only this but I wanted a window seat and she also was able to do this"
Pros: "Good service, quick flight, food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Checked my carry on even though there were many open overhead bins and I explained we only had an hour layover in Dulles"
Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
Pros: "Pilot was very nice!! Co-pilot too!!!"
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
