Pros: "I never flew to Rome because of LATAM!"
Cons: "Flying home"
Read more about LATAM Airlines
Pros: "I never flew to Rome because of LATAM!"
Cons: "Flying home"
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Luggage....it is allowed to charge but they shouldn’t charge. During on boarding they communicate that because the cabin was full of hand luggage the rest of the passengers needed to dispatch their hand luggage for free. This occurs only because they charge to dispatch luggage when buying the tickets. So nobody dispatch luggage and those who dis became frustrated because they payed. This unfortunately occurs on all companies."
Pros: "Easy check in, and kindly personnal"
Cons: "Maybe consider some upgrades when its possible"
Pros: "Foot rest in coach"
Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Cons: "Low cost, no frills, but on time. It's what we want and they delivered that today."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and caused all sorts of problems and headaches. Had to book a new final destination and didn't even make it to my original final destination."
Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."
Cons: "long long line at check in... long line at the TSA late getting to the gate. Flight left an hour late did not meet my connecting fight no help in SP no ground crew for directions. long long line at customs then long line to rebook flight had a 7 hour layover in SP before Rio."
Cons: "Nice"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."
Cons: "Boarding was adjacent to C04 with the Aerolineas flight leaving 5 minutes before us. This congested the boarding but was well handled."
Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Business class seats too narrow on 767. Needs upgrade"
Cons: "Old aircraft Business seat narrow"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Had to pay for luggage. Had to pay for TEA...didn’t even have milk. No air con of the seat."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Pros: "Perivian movies. Fast check in"
Cons: "Problems to boarding Short space in the cabin"
Pros: "Good crew, excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable seats and on-time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking, so there was only an in-flight magazine to read with limited English language material"
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "East check in. Punctuality. Good coffee"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight because of a death in the family. To change my flight was more expensive than the initial ticket itself. That is ridiculous. You should not do that to people. There should be a $300 change fee and that's it. At most. The entertainment would be good if I could hear it - but I couldn't. The sound was terrible. Uncomfortable seats. Barely slept. Overal terrible experience. Also turn on the damn entertainment while we are waiting on the tarmac - why wait until we are in the air? Almost every other airline - all the good ones - Emirates, Lufthansa, and other quality airlines - will let you access the in flight entertainment as soon as you sit. But the change cost of the ticket was the most offensive thing. I feel robbed, in a time of tragedy."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."
Pros: "Food, movies"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane shakes moves and jumps to much. Seems like LATAM is always late. They did not honor the seats which we pre purchased. Seems like the captains fly to fast and don’t know how to land"
Pros: "Love the food, presentation, service EVERYTHING about this flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, as expected in business class"
Cons: "1. Entertaining not working Rebooting didn’t fix it Nobody offered any alternative 2. As the last seat, NONE of my meal options were available. Surely they could hv started fm the back at least once to offset this handicap?"
Pros: "All of your staff where very nice and kind."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Comida, al llegar a mi ya no habían opciones."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The plane is ok but it is an old 767"
Cons: "When I check in, they don't find my booking information. And let me to find out the solution. It's so terrible airline."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Boarding itself was organized, though the people didn't really catch on. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "3-3-3 in the 787. Yeah, everyone has it but that doesn't make it nice. Sandwich was small in quantity, average in quality."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and they offered drinks and a snack. We had an extra seat between us that was not taken. Lovely"
Cons: "The check in was horrendous with a wait of 45 minutes. The flight had to circle for 30 minutes before it could land in Arequipa."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "Absolutely no customer service. Lost my full payment because Latam has no flexibility. They don't need to employ people in a "custom service department " because they don't offer any. Their options for rescheduling is zero. Their reply to all modifications is "no". Not even if you're standing at the boarding gate and they have empty seats. Use any other options for flight. Try Sky Airlines instead."
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "This was the last leg of a very long trip. It went great and the whole trip went as planned. Highly recommend LATAm and American."

Cons: "Breakfast could be improved"
Pros: "Flight was great! Crew was great! We've never had any problem(s) et all w/LAN."

Cons: "boarding, we were told the flight was overbooked and we would have to wait for another flight"
Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE DO NOT FLY WITH AREOMEXICO"
Pros: "gooe friendly service. Flights were on time. Embraer 1900 performed well."
Cons: "More English tranlation"
Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."

Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."
Cons: "I wish I didn't have an almost 6 hour layover and that there was a personalized screen for this longer flight."

Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"
Pros: "On time, fast boarding"
Cons: "Too much airport security"

Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"
Pros: "Right on time, great entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Ground crew is inept. 1. They keep separate lanes for passengers who checked-in via web and who had not checked-in yet. However they did not prioritized one over the other. So people who arrived 10 minutes after me and had not checked-in dropped their luggage before me. 2. They did not ask questions to figure out how to best help passengers. 3. Provided incorrect boarding time 4. provided incorrect information to pickup luggage in CDMX"

Pros: "Leaving on time"
Pros: "Overall great experience."
Pros: "I will definitely fly with Aeromexico in the future. Great crew and amenities."

She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"
Pros: "Well organized boarding and time efficient"
Cons: "Food mediocre"
Pros: "The timing was great. The boarding time. The flight left on time. The crew were very attentive and courteous. The transport from the aircraft to the airport was also good. There wasn't any entertainment, so I couldn't give that a good rating."

Cons: "People make you feel dumb when you have a question or they need to repeat something they mentioned before. Is very hard to understand sometimes trough the speaker."
Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "I missed my from Tijuana to Guadalajara and I called kayak to let them know I still needed the flight from Guadalajara to Tijuana. I asked them not to cancel it and hey said no problem. Well that wasn’t the case my flight got canceled and I had to pay 250 dollar store to get back to Tijuana.

Pros: "FOOD!!!"
Cons: "Nothing to comment."
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Pros: "There was a ten and a half hour delay of which two hours was on a plane waiting on the tarmac with mechanical problems and two more hours waiting to be reticketed in the terminal. But the airline took care of us with vouchers for food, hotel and taxis. The crisis was handled really well. It was just miserable because we only got two hours sleep. I am glad this was just a once in a lifetime crisis and inconvenience. Maybe it was caused by Boeing who made the plane."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."

Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Can do better on the snacks"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, when I have a very important return to Mexico. This airline is an exact clone of American Airlines, which are known for their horrible and disgusting customer service. They said I should have my luggage by tomorrow, but I don't believe it as this isn't the first time with me flying with them and they loose my luggage (it's take them 3 days to return my luggage and there was never reimbursement for the receipts of clothes and items I had to purchase because they were in my bag they lost!). Your mediocracy isn't going to make you a legacy airline AEROMEXICO, this is an AVgeek who has work for the industry!"

Pros: "Quiet , comfortable cabin and crew was quick to board everyone"
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "My plane was downgraded to a smaller and the weight restricted. I was unable to get on my flight at the designated time so now currently sitting in another plane 2 hours later and still haven’t left for my destination GRK.

Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Free movies lagged and got stuck on wifi. Gave up watching one."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."

Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."

Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Pros: "A comedy of errors that really wasn't funny. My poor elderly parents are exhausted by what should have been an easy non-stop flight in good weather."
Cons: "The service and equipment problems."
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Delayed on both flights"
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats and space"
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short.

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Good flight, helpful staff and friendly crew. There was a flight delay out of Iquitos due to fog, causing us to miss our next connection in Lima to Cusco but the staff in Iquitos made sure we got on the next plane with new tickets and luggage transferred to the right plane. Naturally, we were disappointed with several hours of delay due to safety but were pleased with the service in resolving our concerns. There was no entertainment available on this trip ever through there was a screen for each seat."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Each person having their own screen for movies and Tv is great! Food good/ too much but spaced apart very well...overall excellent service"
Cons: "Being pulled aside prior to boarding because we did I not have a sticker on our passports... otherwise boarding was excellent!"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."

Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"

Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."
Cons: "Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was how polite and helpful the staff was at the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants both seemed unhappy and we're not very polite. They hardly came through the cabin at all. It took a while to get anything. They mostly just stayed in the back talking to each other. The pilot didn't greet us. Just stood there when we walked in. And there was a kid screaming for most of the trip. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. This was my first trip flying, and on the trip to Miami I flew with Delta. The service with them was tremendously better. I was really disappointed."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."

Cons: "Atraso (nos voos de ida e de volta) sem que tenham sido dadas explicações ou informações."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I would rather eat angry bees."
Cons: "crew could have been more professional, the signs for boarding were confusing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the crew was excellent. The boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "My center seat, which was assigned, put me in an extremely uncomfortable position physically for the entire 14 hour flight. My two seatmates extended physically into my space, and minimal legroom meant by knees were pressed against the seat in front. I was not happy at the lack of seat choice."
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Pros: "Liked the comfort of the plane, on time, and smooth touchdown"
Cons: "Food was dried out, crew was extremely slow to dispense beverages and food"
Pros: "Great plane B 787"
Cons: "Paid online for food and most choices gone Overpriced"

Pros: "nice crew, very attentive"
Cons: "no movies, charge for food"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food options, Air Canada used to have tasty food!"
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."
Cons: "Started off by being 40 mins delayed. Not bad, compared to the 4 hour delay I had going to Vancouver. Flight was super uncomfortable. Upon arrival to Toronto. The gate had ice on it. So we had to wait in the plane for over an hour before we could get to a gate and off the plane. And then the entire plane of people (300-400 people I believe?) had to wait for our bags to come out for TWO HOURS! Meanwhile flights from Vancouver that we’re supposed to leave after us , left before us, got there before us, and got their bags before us. Horrible trip. I could not believe how unprofessional and unprepared Air Canada and the Toronto airport was during the holidays!"
Cons: "Why did I have to pay to select my seat? Isn't that the point of purchasing a seat at all? Silly."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "Food was not as good time"
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Pros: "The flight was underbooked, so there was extra seat space. Our delay was cut from 90 min to just 30 min"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to fog in San Francisco"
Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Pros: "Customs and immigration happens in Canada, not US"
Cons: "Delays, computer malfunction during boarding"
Cons: "Didn't board as I missed the connection."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Lack of in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "After a bad connection, it was nice to have a smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was always as good as can be expected BUT THE DELAYS AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION WAS THE ACTUAL LOWEST LEVEL OF AIR FLIGHT WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. TIME AFTER TIME DELAY AFTER DELAY RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS BOTH WAYS!!!"
Cons: "PLEASE SEE WHAT WE DID LIKE HOWEVER AGAIN TO REPEAT THE NUMBER OF DELAYS RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS WAS ABOVE AND BEYOND BELIEVABLE. NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GATE AGENTS AND INCORRECT INFO ON FLIGHTS AND DEPARTURE TIMES WAS TRULY BEYOND BELIEF"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "delayed by 4 hours - had to miss my onward flight & have only 1.5 hours instead of 8 hours"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, one of the ladies was rude and I did not get window, even though I requested with enough time."
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Pros: "I liked having Nexus get me through air Canada's malfunctioning Website to airport chaotic check-in otherwise may have missed my flight! Actual flight was smooth,quick and comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. Airplane interior open and bright. Bathrooms clean and well supplied."
Cons: "Customer's time is valuable too! Air Canada website check-in malfunctioning causes anger, frustration and chaos at home and continues through airport check-in. HUNDREDS of angry, frustrated customers paid for their tickets, tried to check-in online and arrived early all converged into one CHAOTIC crowd. ADDRESS these issues, FIX YOUR WEBSITE, TREAT YOUR HARDWORKING, PAYING CUSTOMERS with DIGNITY and RESPECT they DESERVE. Competing Airlines are waiting for your dissatisfied customers."
Pros: "On time clean"
Pros: "Generally the flight was just fine."
Cons: "Nothing stood out as being a problem."
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "I am not an especially large person and felt squeezed into my middle seat without any room to move without bumping into either of the people beside me, who were also small to normally sized. Very uncomfortable! I will avoid this airline again if possible, it was not a pleasant experience. I also didn't have enough room to put my backpack under the seat in front of me and was further confined."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airline oversold seats for my son's flight -- even though I bought my ticket back in April for a flight in November. This is absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I know it's a growing practice, but to charge for food is a policy that I think is short-sighted."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Pros: "The crew were helpful & friendly. The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "The rows of seats were too close together for comfort."
Pros: "That there were no delays."
Pros: "Very fast."
Cons: "TV was frozen, meaning nothing to do for 5 hours, no alternate option. flight was full, no room for overhead baggage. Spent entirely too much money for these conditions."
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, and then they lost my baggage, when I landed in Chicago, no bag. A person from United Airlines called me at 7:00 AM the next morning and said that they had my bag. He directed it to GRB that day. Thanks to him I got my bag back!"
Pros: "NIL"
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"
Pros: "Clearing customs in Canada"
Cons: "Over priced food"
Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, and actual seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The canbin temperature was kept far too low; unless you are forced to buy some over priced blanket"
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Last minute plane change due to incomplete repairs was a bummer, but I appreciate that they caught the issue before we took off"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, both in the air and on the ground"
Cons: "Wasn’t able to do my pre-check via the airline due to a technical glitch on their end, but boarding staff was very helpful and should be commended. Their also wasn’t any inflight entertainment options, which for a 4 plus hour flight would be helpful"
Cons: "Friendlier service."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "The ability to scan for juvenile adults acting like children."
Pros: "On time flights"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Slow with drinks and food, late departure"
Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"
Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"
Pros: "I finally arrived."
Cons: "More communication about delay and lost luggage."
Cons: "A mechanic issue with a fan in the cargo hold kept us from boarding for 40 minutes. Once we boarded and got out onto the tarmack they discovered an issue with the GPS. We sat for 2 hours before going back to the gate. Maintenance came on and fixed it. Then we took off.. 3 hours late"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"
Cons: "Faster boarding"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Cons: "Saw many backpacks inefficiently stored overhead, yet I was told to check in my carry on even though I had paid to upgrade my seat. Staff extremely unhelpful and clueless."
Pros: "Got to gate on time. Attendants nice, good service"
Cons: "seats of course. No room anymore"
Pros: "Crew was cheerful."
Cons: "Bring your own everything, even your own entertainment. Download the app before you fly so you can watch 20 year old movies."
Cons: "This flight and three others arrive into Dublin at 5:00 am This is a bizarre time to arrive at a destination"
Pros: "I LIKED THE WAY I WAS TREATED BY PERSONNEL AT FLIGHT DEPARTURE ZONES ESPECIALLY IN VANCOUVER AND CHICAGO. WHEN BOARDING THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE POLITE AND HELPFUL IN GETTING MY CARRY ON SUITCASE PROPERLY STOWED."
Cons: "THE OPTION TO WATCH TV WAS NOT USED AS I PREFER READING AND CHATTING WITH FELLOW PASSENGERS AND I DID BOTH!"
Pros: "On time, pleasant crew"
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Take off and landing very good"
Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Indifferent staff, absolutely no customer service Flight late, no food, no entertainment, seats extremely cramped, packed in like sardines, no personality at all, just attitude- get through it, provided basics, waited 20 min for first bag to appear in luggage carousel too, nothing good about it! It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
Pros: "They at least had the option for live TV on one of the flights, but wanted $8, when Southwest gives it to you free."
Cons: "The gate agent also just seemed and unpleasant in general. The leg room is the worst in the industry, it's absolutely terrible"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers"
Cons: "Unfortunately the first leg of our flight was delayed over an hour. Although we made our connecting flight (barely), our luggage didn't make it onto the plane. It was OK since it was our return flight and we received our luggage later the next day."
Cons: "I don't like delays..."
Cons: "I don't understand why you don't load from the back of the plane first, it just makes more sense."
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful service,"
Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the staff was polite."
Cons: "The food that was supplied was meager!. When you fly half way across the United States and get 2 cups of a soft drink, no peanuts or chips; that is terrible."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Your refund or rescheduling policies."
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight to PHX the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"
Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Gate Crew in YVR was very courteous"
Cons: "Deadheading pilots throwing large carry on in front rows but sitting in back rows. Really guys?"
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Cons: "I was in the very back seat, and the lady in front of me had her seat leaned back the entire time. I had no room, and was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
