Pros: "Very good experience with ANA."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "on time"

Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."
Pros: "Clean, friendly and the 787 Dreamliner was great, be sleep with 2 different families little ones keeping me awake."
Pros: "the place. new. lots of space for the legs. air inside the plane was better than others."

Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "The ANA crew is always exceptional. Drinks and food are constantly being provided and the crew routinely walks about the cabin to ensure passenger needs are being met."
Cons: "For some reason, other countries do not use a number system when boarding. This often means if you're not paying attention, you could be the last to board the aircraft because a line will form almost out of thin air. Minor issue, but a systematic boarding procedure would be good."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Not ok"
Pros: "Everything about my flight was wonderful. The staff was always extremely helpful and happy. The plane was new and comfortable. Meals were good. Flight was on time. Everything went as best as it could."

Pros: "Very helpful and experienced crew, really good service! Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Seat was narrow for business class."
Pros: "the food on LH755 was decent. LH454 second snack, a cold sandwich was inedible! Too salty, soggy and just plain yucky!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "Honestly, it was probably the best trans-Atlantic flight I have ever made. Clean, comfortable craft. Polite and attentive crew."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Istanbul to frankfurt flight had no entertainment, no charging usb ports n a small ham sandwitch for breakfast - this was a 4 hour early mirning international flight!!!"
Pros: "-"
Cons: "I could not make it for the 1st part of my journey due to personal circumstances. There was no notification from Lufthansa that my return journey would be been cancelled as well. I found out 1 hour before the actual flight. Was offered a replacement ticket for over £900. Bought a new one with BA."
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The workers at Lufthansa can learn to communicate with one another so that people don’t miss their flights. First flight stayed on the runway for an hour with no explanation for the delay. This caused us to miss our connecting flight, which clearly could have been avoided. Pathetic professionalism."
Pros: "The economy seat was surprisingly comfortable"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and service was great and good food and drink"
Pros: "it’s wasnt a full flight, so that was nice"
Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"
Pros: "Large entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort less than desirable. Not enough sitting space. Also my luggage was left behind in Munich."
Pros: "It was very smooth, the connection was great, boarding went easy, service was nice."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and because I booked pretty late, didn't get the seat choice I wanted. I purchased the flight via the Lufthansa site, but then on check-in, I found out that the first segment was SAS, so neither the Lufthansa site nor the SAS site let me check in online."
Pros: "Aircraft, cleanliness, crew, food"
Pros: "Not much compared to Lufthansa from AID to Munich."
Cons: "Old plane, old movies, service was mediocre"
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding. Flight attendants were very good. On time arrival."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time boarding. Food decent."
Cons: "Wife n I was seated separate; I was assuming management would understand we were travelling together, seat was cramp. Meals was served far apart in timing or closed to landing on last meal."
Pros: "My wife and I travel frequently and Lufthansa has always been a "notch above" all other airlines in onboard service. Imagine, airplane food that you can actually eat and enjoy!"
Pros: "staff"
Pros: "Asked for an extra pillow - handed that straight away. Excellent food - loved every meal, both portion and quality. Boarding process was smooth too. Pilots are always great."
Cons: "Would have been nice to get upgraded to premium economy since they had seats available."
Pros: "Great crew, polite and helpful. Pillow and blanket were a nice touch. Will use them again!!"
Cons: "The food isn't that great though it wasn't horrible. Plane was extremely warm both to me and some seated around me."
Cons: "Terrible food and atrocious crew staff -- impatient, rude, unhelpful and racist. Unacceptable to give kitkat and sweet offerings for kids meals both times. Zero nutrition and terrible for children. Adult meals were equally unpalatable. Aircraft was also older and not in the best condition."
Pros: "One of middle aged blonde flight attendants - didnt get her name- was super nice and friendly and shoukd be rewarded for standing out in the crowd of flight attendants. Food above average."
Cons: "Delay at departure in Frankfurt - fuel tank problem- made people miss their connection flights. Medical problem on board caused delays and me having to change seats at the end to where the sick woman used to sit - smelled of vomit, gross. 3 crying bwbies for 12 hours. Seats too narrow, room in front too small with table pulled out. LH always good but not this time."
Cons: "I cannot accept that the airline lies to its passangers through crew members about delays, is not willing to wait for a few minutes for rushing passangers from connecting Lufthansa flights and doesnt care about problems this may cause"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Attendants were impressive. kind and so willing to serve."
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible. Those movies were not the best selection but the poorest selection as the cheapest probably."
Pros: "Liked the crew, the food, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport wheelchair service needs to be better administrated."
Pros: "Everyone at Lufthansa are very friendly so thank you everyone we love you"
Pros: "Quick flight and very comfortable."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Pros: "The most professional and helpful crew"
Pros: "The food was good and seemed to be plenty for an airline. Most of the crew was really friendly. Just one seemed short and put out by requests. Lots of movie choices. Loved having a USB port available"
Cons: "got the back row, so no reclining, yet the person in front of me reclined so felt crowded and kinda stuck"
Pros: "Attendants were extremely helpful as I needed assistance to, and from Munich to Miami."
Cons: "Too long flight time. I left booking up to someone else so not fault of airline."
Cons: "Very long flight. Try to get as much sleep as possible."
Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"
Pros: "Same for all flights"
Pros: "Lufthansa - The best."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"
Cons: "Little more leg room would be nice"
Pros: "I love the Service the attender provided"

Pros: "Everything just sort of fell in place. No complaints!"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attentiveness of the staff"
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Pros: "very nice and attentive personel"

Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.

Always exceptional service

Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."
Pros: "Crew are the best!"
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"
Pros: "Speed, courtesy of the flight attendants"

Cons: "Treated like cattle while boarding unless your preferred member. Average food quality."
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."
Pros: "Seat room was better on most economy flights. The food was good and the glass of champagne did not hurt at all. The aircraft flew very smoothly from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Cons: "We tried to check our bags through Charles DeGaulle onto our connecting Air Canada flight and the agent refused to even discuss it. Pretty bad service."
Pros: "The service provided by Jet and Air France was excellent. The wheelchair service did help very much"
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Cons: "The company failed to transfer my checked-in bag to the next flight during the transfer apparently"
Pros: "Was upgraded to Business class, so the food was acceptable. Comfort score also reflects the Business class seat. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "One bag did not arrive in Toronto, apparently delayed in Paris."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."
Cons: "The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any)."
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Cons: "Everything was sub-par, the food, entertainment, the crew responsiveness, I asked for two drinks and was told that I could only get one at a time... really? The crew was multilingual, which was great, but also very annoying to have to listen to announcements in 5 different languages. They could use media with standardized messaging and a choice of an appropriate language, but these would make too much sense I guess. This was the tightest coach I've ever flown in, the seat ergonomics was horrible."
Pros: "Modern planes, very comfy (Vancouver to Beijing), nice entertainment options, good food"
Cons: "super cranky flight attendants who looked and talked to us like we are idiots. Not just my feelings; the rest of my travel group of 7 agrees...."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the baggage claim team in Ottawa who took extra steps to ensure that a piece of my carry-on luggage that I forgot on the flight was returned to me safely and packaged with more care than I did for myself!"
Cons: "I can't take the flight and I can't get my money back. It is horrible"
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Cons: "Overall everything was great, but they lost our luggage going to our destination and coming back."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "crew was friendly. thankfully the flight was not full, so most people (not me) were able to stretch out on multiple seats in the rear. Food was typical; keeps you alive but that is the best we can say."
Cons: "entertainment system offered very limited variety. I think the movies were picked by a 12 year old."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago). This blatant discrimination nearly caused me to be arrested and deported from China. It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."

Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Cons: "I can't fly in Canada with my US visa... so I am rejected. I think I should get more advises on about that from Kayak. I feel weird for Kayak choose my flight from Vancouver to Toronto and then to Raleigh. But I feel it would be ok if the ticket is financial. But, I was rejected by Air Canada because of that...And I need to pay more than 7000 RMB for another flight( there is $250 change flight fee). I feel terrible honestly! Time and money are what important for me and at last I've got neither of them."
Pros: "People were nice wHen airline made them available to us. But business lounge, special services, and other services were not available in Toronto when we wanted them."
Cons: "Connecting flight was repeatedly delayed. Then finally cancelled because no crew was provided by the airline. Since this was only announced so late - after midnight - hotel rooms were no longer available we had to try to sleep on the floor in the departure hall. Maybe ok for 20 year old travelers. Not for 75 year olds like me who paid business class fare so as to hopefully avoid some of the rigors of travel. I managed to catch up on some sleep the next day in the business lounge while eating for my rescheduled connection. Still it has taken an additional period to physically recover from this experience."
Cons: "Cannot watch movies in over 10 hours flight, rude service."
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "I liked the newer plane and cloth seats with mild colors. The chargers were a nice accessory but sacrificed leg movability which leads us to the negatives --->"
Cons: "Wow, I know that business means remaining competitive and as such any and all cost cutting measures are taken along with profit increase measures but............... Wow, talk about being crammed in like a sardine. I'm a male of average height and usually this is a blessing because it feels as though all vehicles, amusement rides and doorways are custom made just for me with the exception of Air Canada planes. I have never in my 300+ number of flights ever felt so confined in any seat. The distance from my knee to the seat in front of me was a claustrophobic finger length at best. Getting up to use the restroom required the other passengers to get up, and I had to stand and walk across their seats to get in/out. Luckily the lady next to me was nice enough and the flight was pleasant overall, but I will certainly think twice before booking another Air Canada flight!!!"
Pros: "Air Canada does it all well. There is a strong sense that every piece o the process has been checked and double checked. Good value for money. Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "In economy, the seats are small. Sigh. And the breakfast sausage was white. But otherwise, all good."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Pros: "Very good food. Great range of entertainment -- much better than United, which last year gave no selection for the long rides between Beijing and Chicago"
Cons: "Boarding process. We had four flights on Air Canada, and were put in the last boarding group on every one of them, which makes it hard to get overhead space. It seems statistically impossible for them to assign the worst boarding group to the same people every time, but they did it."
Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
Pros: "Two bags plus a carry-on."
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Salty pretzels!"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"
Pros: "spaced out"
Cons: "there was no food alergy alternatives (Gluten Free)"
Pros: "Everything happened as planed"
Cons: "Covid testing and requirements was stressful"
Pros: "short time, smooth flight"
Pros: "Love the new premium plus. Comfortable."
Cons: "777 overhead bins suck."
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Absolutely horrible aircraft. I am 6 ft 3 and there was no way I could fit my body into the seat without crushing my knees. So I had one leg underneath the seat in front of me the other leg in the Isle. The flight attendant came down the aisle with the drink cart running it squarely into my knee."
Cons: "I cried out in pain with tears in my eyes and all she could say was you shouldn't have your leg in the Isle."
Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on this flight, often interrupting cabin service."
Cons: "We were delayed in Chicago due to weather coming home from Europe. We were not allowed to use the business class lounge even though we paid for business class tix. My family is still sitting in the airport waiting on their flight to dallas. We have been up now for over 24 hours. We should be allowed to be someplace comfortable for the price of the business class tickets. poor form on Lufthansa’s part."
Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"
Pros: "Poor experience sitting in the seats right in front of emgency exit. I’m not that tall at 5’11’ and sitting straight up I had 1 inch between my knees and seat in front with no ability to recline."
Pros: "Not a thing! Except that the flight landed."
Cons: "Hated the entire flight. It left late. They lost my luggage. The flight was overcrowded. The crew was rude. I didn’t get my correct aisle seat assignment as requested. I’m all and have long legs. United is the WORST airline to fly. I have had previous bad experiences with United, but this was the worst. I will not fly United EVER again if I can help it."
Pros: "Staff were respectful Plane was warm enough Left on time Extended leg room seats were actually comfortable Not next to toilets"
Cons: "Food was somewhat disappointing. Ordered a gluten free meal which somehow turned into a vegetarian meal - that was disappointing."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "The sound system had been down most of the flight. Butter cube was completed melt. Bread was cold in the center."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Rarely does an international flight not equipped with TV screen on back of chair. It's so ancient to have overhead screen"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious."
Cons: "My legs hurt during the flght and I couldn't get pills for air sickness, plus a half-an-hour delay. Also, my screen didn't work properly, which needs repair."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible food. Cramped, uncomfortable seats. No in-flight entertainment, app did not work."
Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"
Cons: "Flight was late Food on trip was barely average"
Cons: "Stewardesses were over worked and their arritude showed showed it. I didn't blame them ."
Pros: "The service at the check-in wass awful. The problem with the kiosk machine, I asked for help and they responded rutely. No Customer Service Skills."
Cons: "The crew in the plane was wonderful."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."
Pros: "No delay at all"
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Leg room in economy was bad for a international flight"
Pros: "Nice seat space (upgraded) Good flying into Chicago"
Cons: "Our plane and seats were changed by United (originally thru SFO) and we ended up in front of the exit rows so seats did not recline. The crew announced that this was not a full flight but asked that and movement await all boarding. I waited until airborne and moved into the empty seat in back of me. It actually was comparable to my own but I remained now that I moved. Several hours into the flight a male attendent told me I had to return to my original seat. No explanation. This did not present a hardship but very unnecessary and possibly risky not to have manpower in the emergency row."
Cons: "I have united credit card and still had to pay for baggage cause I didn't purchase ticket with card. American has wifi, free movies and plugs. I'm very disappointed with United."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 and half hours"
Pros: "Very good!"
Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by an hour and a half. That's the amount of time I could have spent to drive home to Milwaukee. I stuck around because there was no indication of a flight cancellation. I would rather hop on a 15-30min flight than go through the hassle of renting a car. BUT the flight did get canceled, the next flight was completely booked and the next flight out after that was at NIGHT. I arrived in Chicago in the morning. The gate agent told us all to head to United customer service. There I received RUDE, poor excuse of a "service" only to be told they don't give refunds at the counter as we were told by the gate agent. So do that on your own time. THEN I had to buy my bus ticket and spend 1.5-2hrs on top of already waiting 1.5hrs for the flight that got canceled. HORRIBLE. Will never fly United again. Did i mention upon my arrival home I found out American was WIDE open seat wise to chicago?? And no one checked for me!"
Cons: "Missed my connecting fight due to my aircraft having malfunctions, as well as my flight home being delayed three times. Worst flying experience to date."
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."
Pros: "Everything ran super smooth from baggage check in to departure exactly on time. Even arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "Even upgrading to economy plus seating it was still u comfortable. Wifi if you chose to pay. Tiny little bag of pretzels."
Pros: "I like the United check in person in Milwaukee / kind- helpful- informed. All United personal were polite and professional in spite of many delays , cancellations and upsets."
Cons: "Out going flight to Denver never made it to salt lake . Rebooking barely got us to connecting flights.... but made it we ran to connecting flight and did make connection. Returning, our first flight also never appeared ... two hours and 15 mins of standing in line to rebook We boarded another flight. In Chicago we stood in another line to rebook . Eventua"
Pros: "Onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "United terminal gate crew at Norfolk International was horrible."
Pros: "Perfect all around and arrived 25 minutes early."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"
Pros: "On time; very attentive flight crew"
Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."
Pros: "Flight departed An hour late but caught up time on route. service was cold, rude and lazy. Many passenger brought food trash tray to the station by themselves. Bathroom was gross. Food was salty and I requested water and I was ignored. I finally raised my voice and start asking their names because I would write a complain. Tha started all hassle for me. Long story short, I was demanded to identify if I held Chinese or US passport... I have written a letter to United CEO. I got reply that I would get a reply in 24-48 hours. I'm waiting. My second leg was two hours delay from Chicago to Boston."
Cons: "those FA should be fired, especially the one who demanded to identify my nationality."
Cons: "The crew members were not very happy and were snappy in their replies. The seating is ridiculously small, you cannot access the carry one baggage under the seat if the person in front of you puts their seat back. The food was better this time than the flight to Beijing, still not great. I also need to add that the original flight from Chicago to Beijing had a 7 hour delay which was ridiculous, especially when traveling so far. No food vouchers were offered and passengers were kept in the dark for long periods of time. The return flight was also slightly delayed. This is not a good reputation for an airlines to have. United will not be my first choice of airlines in the future."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "I liked arriving home in a timely fashion."
Cons: "The first gate agent responding flatly, "I have NO idea." to a gate change question. OR the Mother Superior flight attendants that couldn't wait to point and nag about seat backs and tray tables. I wonder if either of the women noticed they were talking to someone who wasnt't an English speaker? United needs to fly Southwest to learn the right way to do things."
Cons: "I need my suitcase asap. There are lots of important stuff inside."
