Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."

Cons: "check in procedure in Berlin: That airport is different. You drive right to the gate from which you board the plane. I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."

In Swiss on a 50 minutes flight I got a complimentary chocolate, a crossaint and beverage service. Amazing. The crew also has been very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Landing in Zürich has been the bumpiest landing I have ever had. I believe that is due to the location and weather conditions but felt like the pilots also did not exactly react the way it should have been."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane.

Cons: "Checking bags took longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach).

Pros: "mtl to Zuric was t"

Cons: "They didn't let me on the flight because I'm disabled pure discrimination"
Cons: "Foddd no gud"

Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces. Seats were packed together very tightly. Given the lack of space, better to fix seats to only recline a little."
Pros: "Plenty of films."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot."
Pros: "I love the food and the movies"
Cons: "Seats allocation was uncertain until we checked in"
Cons: "When my first flight was late, Turkish air took 5 hours to rebook me. Two people forgot that they were helping me and when I asked why it was taking so long, they had to start over.

Every step of the process they asked me how I could have missed the connection....it landed 20 min before the next one took off!!!"

Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Pros: "Well priced airline with higher levels of service than contemporaries. But contact with them is a challenge. Getting breakfast on the first leg was great."
Cons: "Could not check in online so got a middle seat at airport. Airport in Istanbul is very spread out. Be ready to walk. Give up on boarding groups or the reality of announcements."
Pros: "The flight was very accommodating. Everything from eye shades, tooth brush and slippers were provided. I took the red eye and slept the whole way."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Everything you want in an overnight international flight. Enjoyed the food."
Cons: "The crew was not very warm and/or welcoming - they were short, impersonal, and kind of cold"
Cons: "After returning home I found items had been stolen from my luggage. Specifically about half of the items in my first aid kit were taken. Total cost of replacement will be approx $30."

Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"
Pros: "Everything was great but I particularly liked the meals."
Cons: "Our trip to Europe required three legs: Boston to Ljubljana, Slovenia; Slovenia to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Boston. Each leg required a plane change in Istanbul which added a lot of time to the trip and resulting jet lag. We knew this going in but were motivated by the very low fare. I don't think I'd do it again."
Cons: "My lugged lost"
Cons: "Lounge at Ankara not comfortable and food need to change"
Pros: "Great entertainment systems"
Cons: "Leg room was especially tight."
Pros: "I know it wasn't Turkish Airlines fault, but I booked through Kayak who went through Web jet for the tickets. Webjet cancelled our tickets and never notified me. They never contacted me back, and I almost had to book another ticket."
Pros: "The entertainment and accommodations were superb. I appreciate all the things they think of to make you comfortable. The seats were a bit hard but they reclined nicely."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Pros: "Service and people."
Cons: "Long lines...far away gates...and double security check with pat down...besides having electronic items taken away and a separate line to pick that up and separate line to pick up our baggage in Miami"
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as, if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Pros: "Electronics confiscated from passengers (all passengers, no profiling or consideration for who is dangerous and who is not, which is NOT WHAT I LIKED, I hated it, this political correctness, so everyone "suffers the same", while bad guys still have all the freedom to do terrible things. It is not a security, it is a stupid put on!) but at least our electronics were carefully packed and delivered to Boston. It took whole hour afterwards to retrieve them!!! Terribly inefficient."
Cons: "Stupid, completely idiotic security, caused, of course, by our completely idiotic president Trump rulings, but... Turkish air workers took this stupidity up to an unseen levels. I fight stage 4 cancer, it requires timely medicine. I was not allowed to take on board several critical supplements because they were either in powder, granulated or liquid form (all in their original medical packaging), my custom made crocheting hook was labeled as a dangerous weapon and I was not allowed to take it on board either, so I had no means to alleviate my air flight anxiety. they were going to confiscate and throw it away. Cold "sorry for your loss" was their only reply. They tried to scare me by calling police. Extremely impolite personnel. It took almost two hours, when TA security threaten that I won't fly, to make them pack this little darn crocheting hook together with my iPad. Funny that food on board comes with real metal silverware, forks and knifes included, which are far more convenient and dangerous if I was to use it as a weapon in comparison to a hook (3 inch wooden handle and 1 nah of a metal shaft ending with a small blunt hook, thin - size 2). TA said they provide us with free wifi to compensate for confiscated electronics. I was not able to connect to that wifi all flight long. Movie selection is below mediocre, little choice, practically no quality. Food is bad - not appropriate for my condition at all, but of course I can't bring on board cancer-appropriate food - security labels it as a threat to passengers. No leg room at all for a medium-built lady like myself, can't imagine what thicker or taller people do to survive 9+ hours flight, seats do not recline, pull out tables are of terrible quality- very unstable, so food and drinks fall off even without turbulence, just because of no leg room our knees are always interfere with these flimsy tables. With a comfort and restrictions like I had tickets must cost not a penny over a bus or metro ride, not hundreds of $$. It took about two hours to get my suitcase too - they said our luggage had to go through a second inspection before it gets onto baggage carousel. All in all, I will avoid TA for long flights by all means. Never again. They were an huge downshift to my perfect vacation. I had to go to an emergency treatment today because of the way TA treated me yesterday. Unfortunately, I can't measure how much yesterday's abuse advanced my disease, I am disturbed and frustrated enough to go to court to bring a suit against... yet again, those imbeciles from security do have a good alibi - their actions were triggered by US government regulations."
Pros: "Movie selections. Larger displays. Comfortable seats. FOOTREST."
Cons: "When going from US to India, food was excellent. But when traveling from India to US, the food was not good at all."

Pros: "The food was really good but very little"

Pros: "You can easily trust Turkish Air to get you there on time and in relevant comfort. The staff are very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane was a bit more cramped than for example, Singapore air. I also thought the boarding could be improved significantly by calling groups. Even though it was a small flight, the boarding was a bit of mayhem due to the fact that we had to shuttle to the plane."
Pros: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."
Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean, and the crew was both professional and friendly. The food was excellent and it was a surprise to be served a full lunch on a 2-hr flight in coach class. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"
Pros: "Up to date movies!"
Cons: "Crew need to smile a bit."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "The service was great. The flight attendants are professional, accommodating and very helpful. Inflight entertainment is great."
Cons: "The temperature runs high on most Turkish Airlines flights that I have taken, especially the red eye flights. Every time that I have flown from Istanbul to Almaty, the plane is hot and people are sweating. This time I asked for the temperature to be adjusted, and after about 4 times, I finally felt a bit better - but still not comfortable. I don't know if this is a malfunction, or an opportunity to save money?"
Pros: "Great screen and movie selection."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Worst I've ever been on for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Crew service, choice of in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Discarding our original chosen seat assignments and assigning us random seats. Food was also below par."
Pros: "Kind. Generous. Competent. Relaxed. Thank you."
Pros: "It's good to flight public transit long time I'm the food is really bad pouring food"
Cons: "Racists bastards!"
Pros: "Overall, I can’t complain. The take off and landing was peaceful"
Cons: "The food could’ve been better. The wait time at Abuja needs lots of improvement. It was the worst part of the trip"
Pros: "Flight was in time with no delays. Arrived in Germany early!"
Cons: "The size of the seats is horrible. Can barely move. When the gentleman in front of me declined, his seat actually hit me in the face."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Good food, good drinks, good flight attendant crew"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable. There were also no air vents"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Cons: "too many unruly kids"

Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Service in cabin"
Pros: "We lost our bags"
Cons: "Our barges were damaged"
Pros: "I am always amazed how Lufthansa gets it right."
Cons: "Legroom was tide. When the person in front of you put their seat down you feel like ham in a sandwich."
Pros: "Super flight and service"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, food good, flight attendants professional. No complaints"
Pros: "My wife and I ran from our connection all the way from one end to the other and the crew could tell. They said after I stow my carry ons to corn to the back and get a drink and use the bathroom to cool down as we were just about to take off to taxi to the runway. The crew was absolutely great and the I. Flight entertainment and food was great. We just wish our luggage had made it back too. We are still waiting to see where our luggage is - if in Europe still or Dallas."
Cons: "I would say that other passengers had their kids behind us and they kept screaming and kicking our chairs. We told the woman to tell her kids to stop but all she said was “they are a child” when all they needed to do was just tell their kid to stop. Flight attendants saw and knew but I don’t know what they could do to help when they can’t help with bad parenting. I wish there was a clear way to upgrade to first class on a trip as it was difficult to find out how."
Pros: "Left in time, arrived too early"
Cons: "Boarding took a lot of time"
Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Pros: "I loved the hot towels."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!!!!!! (I am only 5.3 Inch tall) What about the taller people? I was having stomach problems after eating the airplane food."
Cons: "waited before takeoff, didn't go to right terminal, waited on tarmac for 40 minutes for steps, bags still no on carousel , lost bags....almost missed connection. overall poor experience."
Pros: "The lady at the check-in at the Atlanta airport was extremely nice and extremely helpful"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Very late, rebooked to 8 hours later but told to try standby 3 hours later, hold up all my time and person who picked me up's time. He even had to drive back and forth between home and airport twice each time took him 3hours"
Pros: "Leg room is superior!"
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Pros: "Great movie choices"
Cons: "Temperamental touch screen was frustrating."
Pros: "all the flights were on time, the service was wonderfull"
Pros: "Service was Friendly"
Cons: "Baggage took a long time l"
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Pros: "Food snacks were awful."
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot strike."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean plane and excellent, attentive service on board. We had little time between connections but airport staff offered to drive us, two seniors, to distant gate on his cart which was a lifesaver."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "All would have been great, but the cross Atlantic had a locked seat assignment. I was assigned last row and middle seat, I could not change seat when there were other seats available at check-in. United would not let agents change either. Maybe kayak related? Expedia always allows seat changes"
Cons: "Late flight with no explanation for the delay until after boarding left passengers in the dark and in some cases unable to communicate travel changes (when they could have used the airport wifi if notified in a timely manner)."
Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."
Pros: "I liked that they passed out hot towels and how often they came by with food and drinks! Every time I started to get thirsty they came by with drink service! The temperature was great and we had comfy chairs that made napping easy. The pullout tablet for games and movies was also a great surprise"
Pros: "Seats were really good despite the fact that it is economy class. Food was very good، and entertainment was a blast، watched 4 movies during the flight. The crew members were really polite and helpful. Lufthansa will be a choice for me for any further travels."
Cons: "My trip from Washington to Amsterdam wasn't pleasant at all، because it was operated by United Airlines، which I do not recommend or even try again."
Pros: "Great service, good food, plenty of (and good selection) beverages. This is the way flying used to be and it is awesome on Lufthansa and I was only flying regular coach. Also really good music/movie system with plenty of great choices, I watched some very good movies and the system works very well."
Cons: "Only downside is that despite being pretty techie I could not get the wifi to work and I tried three browsers and every bit of advice in the Magazine on board."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"
Cons: "Very long lines while checking in"
Pros: "It was nice to have both a dinner served in a timely manner, the additional option of drink offered and the snack before arrival. Staff working the flight were polite and friendly. Thank you for providing both a blanket and pillow - which its own Lufthansa pillow cover. Sadly the Anticipation of a Lufthansa flight still rests on the laurels of years of recognized quality. Sadly the Anticipation was greater than the rewards."
Cons: "It is always so much easier to come up with the issues - wish I had more to add on the previous section. ENTERTAINMENT. Headphones provided required a two-prong jack option. There was only room for one prong - so only one ear had sound. The sound perhaps due to this limitation was poor and I couldn't hear the track. Consequently I choose one film with subtitles - which was helpful. The cabin comfort overall was on the chilly side and required the use of the blanket for the whole trip. Meals - the dinner meal served was a nice selection. However, the dessert was still cold - affected flavor. I think a nice bar of chocolate would have been equally welcome as dessert option. There was a small Ritter - which was nice. Lunch or pre arrival snack - really a poor excuse for what was served as pizza. Very doughy and little filling. The tomato was ok but the other selection served - was not a good choice. Not sure what it was. Also had anticipated a warm cloth before landing as a refresher. The seating is incredibly narrow. While most planes are forced into less space, this ride was particularly uncomfortable. I know that there are different model planes each with its own space limitations, advantages or disadvantages, but - frankly, I had expected better from Lufthansa. Finally, by chance having flown to Europe by Swiss Air - I reluctantly have to say that their comfort level, meals and refreshing cloth made it a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Very good staff and service"
Pros: "What a wonderful experience. My husband is a very tall man and he had commented on how much leg room there was in this plane. Everything was very comfortable, people were very polite. Wonderful experience. We also appreciated in the terminal in Munich the free coffee and newspaper stand when we left the plane. How refreshing it was to be able to get a free cup of coffee after a 6am flight. We will be looking into Lufthansa again!"

Pros: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Cons: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."

Pros: "There was nothing to like. Horible experience will never fligh with Austrian Air again"
Cons: "The flight was long delayed, there was no explanation or any sort of pasenger notification about the delay. When I boarded the overhead luggage was full could not find space to secure my bags. The flight attendant was very rude did not assist me and made me wait. Other people traveling without luggage pushed me to pass by. I was told not very nice things. The flight was overbooked and overall horible experience."

Cons: "No place to put my feet. No foot room"
Pros: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."

Cons: "Can’t like it if you missed it!!"
Pros: "Except eventually delay, the flight experience is good."

Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Cons: "Changing planes on Vienna was not easy so 1-hour layover was barely enough (required running)"
Pros: "boarding/deplaning relatively quick. plenty of leg room in emergency row seat"
Cons: "only provided ONE meal on an 11 hour flight?? how is that ok? people were very hungry. when i asked about that, the disinterested flight attendants tried to convince me that they had in fact provided “two services” -they apparently think a small packet of crackers counts as dinner. shortly before landing they served a stale ham sandwich (8 hours after the only meal). Food quality was poor as well. during booking there was not an option to indicate dietary requirements either. not impressed with austrian air overall."
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent. Better food in coach than I get on first class domestic flights. Also, the in-flight entertainment was very good. I watched a couple of science shows and extreme sports shows that I truly enjoyed."
Cons: "There wasn't much I did not enjoy that could be changed. I chose to go coach and had to put up with seating that was more cramped than I like, but I expected that."
Pros: "If you have to fly coach, this was the way to go. The star were lovely, plane clean, food was good. Very nice flight from LAX to Vienna."

Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Pros: "In general, I like the on board food of Austrian and especially in regard of Do&Co catering from Vienna Airport. Staff was not to trying this time but service was still okay."
Cons: "The Senator Lounge at Vienna Airport is very poor, food selection is very limited and it is obvious that the focus is on cost saving. Another disadvantage is that the lounge only opens at 5.30am in the morning but first flight already leave Vienna around 6am. Mine was at 7.05am which meant that I just arrived when the lounge opened and I had to wait in a long cue. Boarding was due to the limited space in front of the gate a mess, priority boarding was announced but I was not made sure that priority passengers board first. The seats on board are for business to small and there is not even space to hag up the coat."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "got to my destination on time."
Cons: "uncomfortable chairs. zero entertainment for a non EU flight (over 3 hours), missed the meal, nothing was offered...."
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."
Pros: "We paid extra for extra leg room. Exit row. Well worth Cabin crew very good and friendly"
Cons: "Connecting flight on United. Horrible experience Chicago to Vegas.seats are small, feeling of claustiphobia, nothing free on entertainment. Only interested in adding to price of ticket. Very warm A/c didn't work well. Totally bad experience on United. Never want to fly on them again"
Cons: "My flight to JFK on August 31 was cancelled. And they didn't provide me ticket same day. They gave ticket for next day. I had problems at work and other issues because of that."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "More organized boarding, crew, piloting"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Short and easy. Good food, fine service and drinks are plenty."
Cons: "Seats not to comfortable. Boarding was a mess because they let families with children together with business class passenger and this creates confusing at the gate. There's no entertainment really...but I guess that's not important for such a short time."
Pros: "It seemed like the crew and passengers had really good attitudes; which always goes a long way."
Cons: "The screens were very small. It would have been nice to have an entertainment menu, with the ability to choose a film and to have a play/pause option. Meal options were limited; by the time I could choose pasta was the only choice left. I would have also appreciated the option of herbal or decaf tea."
