Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"
Pros: "As always, Qatar Airways has new planes, comfortable seats, clean atmosphere, and pretty good leg spaces. They fly on time and land on time."
Cons: "1. Food - It was not that great, especially if you are allergic to cold. It applies to asthmatic patients like me. You have very limited choices. The only hot item in my whole tray was "chicken mixed rice". Everything else from yoghurt to fruits went waste. Can we have HOT FOODS for people like me? 2. Flight Attendants - It seemed that the flight attendants were not so experienced at handling customers. Plus, several of them had poor English. That would have been okay if they had patience to listen to me slowly. But, they seemed to be in hurry and not wait enough to understand my request properly. I was asking HOT WATER and they were repeatedly handing me COLD WATER. Plus, they could see me breathing heavily and feeling great discomfort. Nobody asked me 'ARE YOU OKAY?". It seemed, they didn't care for customers like me. I found a serious lack of CUSTOMER RESPONSIVENESS, forget PRO-ACTIVENESS among several flight attendants. Finally, I found an example of SNOBBERY in the plane. A flight attendant was asking a couple sitting next to me to fill up the FEEDBACK FORM. They looked like from Middle East but were British citizens. They didn't talk to me even though I volunteered at frist to introduce myself. The lady was especially rude to me. They were dressed like high class folks. That's it. They neither represented the hundreds of passengers, especially Indians, in the Economy Cabin, nor were they friendly to fellow passengers. It left me with a feeling that Qatar Airways attendants were judging a book by cover and asking the wrong persons to fill the form who didn't really represent their majority customers for that cabin."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."

Cons: "Flight crew member crept giving alcohol to passenger in 7A, who was harassing passengers around him the more he got drunk"
Pros: "The crew tries."
Cons: "Planes are just uncomfortable and the airlines have a monopoly on long distance travel."
Pros: "Right on time"
Cons: "Wife on board"
Cons: "I would blame this on myself but had a second incident with CheapoAir. The date was wrong and neither cheapoAir NOR AA would help me to fix it without extravagant fees. Ended up eating the ticket."
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Not being delayed. Not waiting an hour for our bags once we got off the plane."
Cons: "Usual uncomfortable seating. Plane was not pulled into a gate. DCA should be an embarrassing operation for American."
Cons: "American’s little buses at DCA suck. Why should I have to wait for everyone who gate checked a bag to get to the terminal? Let me walk to the terminal, get more buses, or get more gates."
Pros: "We’re able to get a different flight after ours was re-scheduled several times."
Cons: "Re-scheduling was later then earlier then later, hard to plan’ Comfort: airlines should have a bill of rights for passengers."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Flight was too crowded!"
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Several delays. Paid for window seat and did not get it. Missed last flight."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "We never took off"
Pros: "Announcements clear pleasant staff decent food"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Excellent experience despite short weather delay. Outstanding flight crew"

Pros: "On time. Comfortable seat. Courteous crew. Easy transfer."
Cons: "Comfort, timeliness."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Pros: "Nothing special about the flight"
Cons: "Tight seats, return was late missed connection had to spend the night in Charlottte."
Cons: "Made me check my carry-on because they claimed the bones were full and they weren't. Not even close."
Pros: "Food was good. Price was decent"
Cons: "No wifi. Headphones didn't work. Hardly any leg room at all."
Pros: "On time flights, friendly crew"
Pros: "Good service by crew and the food. That's about it."
Cons: "The plane was old -6 seats across no leg room, seats narrow, packed in like sardines. Isle monitors for entertainment - everyone to watch selected old movies. Sound so garbled in our seats that we couldn't watch. Almost 8 hour international flight costing over $800 USD. Terrible."
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "Flight was direct and on time."
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes at baggage claim before the carousel even began to move. Not much legroom or personal space."
Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."
Pros: "1. Let me check in online but NOT my wife ... we are both Advantage Gold & TSA pre .... wasted 2 hours on the phone with idiots in their Manila call center 2. An ancient plane, cramped seating, wretched food. 3. An hour late departing JFK & arriving CDG so right in the middle of Paris rush hour !!"
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Normally wouldn't be an issue, but it would have been nice to be more comfortable on a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew very helpful. Screen broken, crew attempted to fix. When unable to fix, moved seat. Followed up and made sure I was taken care of."
Cons: "Entertainment screen broken."
Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Cons: "Mejorar el snack"
Pros: "Most things were fine, it left on time, seats were as expected etc."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on because they ran out of room on the plane way too early- a lot of us had to check carry ons. Crew in second flight- one lady was rather miserable with her attitude in general. The rest of the crew was great."
Cons: "Well the delay was the whole problem, so as of 11:17 I am still in Chicago. Nothing against Chicago but I didn’t pay as much as I did to stay here."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice and very responsive"
Cons: "The food was not that good"
Cons: "The seat in business class was small."
Pros: "what's there ever to like in United? One things is worse than the other!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour for crew not showing up. contacted customer service 2 times on phone and was promised to get travel voucher in 24-48 hours. Never got that. On 3rd time contact I was asked to email their support I did one week ago and nobody bothered to respond yet. Typical United!"
Cons: "No video screen, WiFi didn’t work, hot, got one lousy glass of water"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Pros: "The bathroom sign that shows if it is busy without going there"
Cons: "Volume of the PA was so loud it was painful"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Why are there 2 sets of announcements which interrupt the program we are watching? It could be done at one time. Food was bland. Plane was delayed 30 minutes"
Cons: "DEN security line was long and slow"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Cons: "United Express flies out of Terminal A at Newark (EWR) and routinely they do not have Precheck lanes open. Despite flying on the Saturday after Thanksgiving they only had one mixed security line open. When I asked TSA they said they simply weren't staffed to have a Precheck line open. Everyone was working diligently but this happens every time we fly United out of Newark. Traveling with 2 small children it is incredibly frustrating to have to go through the full security line, take off our shoes, and take all of our electronics out of our bags."
Pros: "The view of the sun set"
Pros: "Service, and the plug for the charger, blankets"
Cons: "Late flight. No support to find back-up flights. No help with tips of how to navigate chicago airport to hopefully get to connecting flight in timely manner. Shuttle service could have been mentioned. The area of the airport I would need to get to in Chicago was not known. Although thr flight to Chicago was by far not full Iwas denied my request to take my roll on on the flight. It fits under seat. I am 70 and had to run across the airport."
Pros: "On time, friendly, overall great!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Forced to check in carry on, 1 hour to get it at bagage claim."
Pros: "Great fly"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Booked aisle seat. Plane change resulted in seat reassignment to middle seat. Awful. And United declined repeatedly to reassign me without $$$ upgrade. United sucks."
Cons: "No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying."
Pros: "Constantly getting beverage service and so many movies and shows to choose from."
Pros: "Great experience overall"
Pros: "Quick boarding m"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay"
Cons: "Put me in a later flight and cannot give me accommodations. I am handicapped and they cannot give me accommodations"
Pros: "Seats were comfy and I liked that the screens on the back of seats had a map of where we were in the flight."
Cons: "Wifi was kind of expensive- I bought 30 minutes for like $3- but it didn't even work. Maybe got 5-10 minutes of actual internet out of it, the rest was frustrating loading pages. Not worth the purchase."
Cons: "2hrs late"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "I flew round trip to Bangkok from Chicago last year for $460. Why does one way from Fargo N.D. To Green Bay, WI cost $480?! My flight said it was late on the screen (6:40) but actually flew on time. I think a kid missed his flight because of it. My connecting flight in Chicago was way too tight because of a LONG delay waiting to unboard. Had to run, yes run through ORD to get to terminal 2 from 1 within minutes to catch my flight. It was too stressfu and expensive."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Coffee was great."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Doesn't look like it's been thoroughly cleaned in ages. My seat was broken. Had to sit upright the entire trip. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."
Cons: "The guy putting his feet on me next to the window"
Pros: "Amazing plane with great features! Incredible staff!"
Cons: "Bathrooms should be bigger"
Cons: "On recent travels with Iceland Air or Delta I have been able to choose a vegan meal option for long flights. It would be great if that was possible with Lufthansa as well, instead I left the plane quite hungry."
Pros: "I missed my flight with Alligent due to an overturned tractor trailer and they couldn't do anything to help me (I'll never fly with them again) and I had to book a last minute flight with United, very easy just pricy due to last minute. Thanks!"
Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."
Cons: "No mechanics available and had to send for some, taking 5 hours. Didn't get to destination until late at night and missed my event."
Cons: "Delayed because of baggage not being ready for flight."
Pros: "Excellent cabin service. Arrive destination on time."
Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."
Pros: "What a difference a plane makes. Traveling on the embraer plane versus the CRJ700 is night and day. I can't believe that the price is the same for these flights! There is entertainment available inflight. There is more room overhead, more room in the aisle, two bathrooms, on and on...this flight was so much better. I will make sure that I never book on the CRJ700 flight to Houston again if I can avoid it!"
Cons: "The flight attendant in first class didn't have the best attitude but it was ok."
Pros: "I liked that I was given spacious accommodations for myself and my service animal."
Cons: "I didn't like that we then sat on the plane for 2 hours, then had to get back off. I don't really blame United Airlines for this because there was a storm. But if Kayak wants me to rate the flight I'd have to say it was bad because it didn't even occur."
Pros: "The one little flight attendant was sweet and kind."
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."
Cons: "cold I the cabin - leaky vent by my legs in 3D"
Pros: "Easy access to wifi, smooth flights."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
