Airline reviews

Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"

Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."

Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."

Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "crew was nice, seating was fine."
Cons: "food was not great"

Pros: "Good entertainment. Flight tracker kept breaking."
Cons: "They don't come around with beverages hardly ever (twice on 13 hour flight) and they tend to skip the window seats. They tried to kick me off an overbooked flight even though I paid extra for a picked seat and booked months ago. Mediocre food. Tiny seats and I'm only 5'5". Will never fly again."

Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."

Cons: "Long lines for security in Auckland, so I barely made the flight to Chicago. There were delays in Chicago due to the weather."

Pros: "Amazing airline and seem less travel"

Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"

Pros: "flight crew are good, other general categories are average."
Cons: "Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed."

Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Cons: "Due to limited internet in Rarotonga, we weren’t able to fully check in until we got to the counter. The flight in came with two checked bags and not our flight to Auckland. We were expected to pay a fee at the counter but was charged $170 for the counter checkin of one bag. This price was not listed or posted anywhere during the booking or via email for mobile check-in."

Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."

Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"

Pros: "The flight was good. The plane is very nice. The in-flight entertainment was good, but you have to pay for most shows/movies. The flight attendants were very nice. The landing was a bit rough. The plane kind of swayed/slide down the runway. But it was raining so it was understandable."
Cons: "Snacks aren't free. They ran out of food before they got to the back section of the plane. Most of the in-flight entertainment is not free."

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Pros: "Air New Zealand is one of the best air experiences we've had. Employees seem to enjoy their jobs and are usually happy. Very service oriented. Ground staff and check in terrific. Why can't USA folks and TSA figure this out? Updates from flight deck were good and pilot seemed to avoid some expected turbulence. Cabin crew friendly, competent, helpful. Food was very good, nice touch with comp wine. Entertainment options were many and good variety. Hope to fly ANZ again someday."
Cons: "A little weird, to go out of secured concourse and go back through security, again, in Auckland. Safety, I suppose. At least process was fast and efficient and folks were friendly."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and went out of their way to do what they could to make everyone happy and comfortable."
Cons: "I had input that I was vegan when I booked and it’s on my airpoints profile- however I did not receive a vegan meal which was a bit disappointing."

Pros: "Will never book though BYOJet again."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."

Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

Cons: "Crew forgot to serve us our meal."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."

Pros: "Food service"

Pros: "We were allowed to check one bag for free...that's awesome. And we were provided with two full meals on the flight, more food than we could eat. And even a complimentary alcoholic drink! Great selection of movies. New Zealand Air is one of the best flying experiences I've had"

Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."

Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."

Pros: "The boarding process was efficient and the seat was comfortable enough for coach class across the Pacific. It was a definite bonus not having someone in the middle seat. The food was quite good, and I appreciated the ability to get snacks throughout the flight. The crew was efficient, the IFE is very good, and the entire experience was very positive. I will continue to fly ANZ internationally as often as I can."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."

Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."

Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Was the same, everything allright"

Pros: "Boarding from last row first"
Cons: "Food was just okay."

Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly, helpful and good humored. The in-flight video and audio choices were outstanding. Meals were good but not outstanding."
Cons: "I suppose it is good marketing to make you walk past the amazing seats in business/premier class on your way past "Premium Economy" back to economy class on the Boeing 777 -- but it did make me wish I had a few thousand dollars to throw away on 13 hours of being pampered. Economy seats are pretty narrow. I am of average size and I was often bumping and being bumped by the passenger in the adjacent seat as well as by people walking up and down the aisle."

Pros: "I was in Premium Economy and everything was wonderful! The food the entertainment system and extra legroom (with a leg rest!) was fantastic! I slept so well!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was non-eventful."
Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."

Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"

Pros: "Unlike a trip on Air New Zealand several years ago, there is actually enough leg room now so knees don't push into the seat in front. That is a huge improvement! The airplane we flew in this trip was a nice new one, very well designed."
Cons: "No complaints! Air New Zealand really seems to be putting forward a god effort, and it shows. Hope they keep up these service standards and improvements over the past."

Cons: "United is so blegh: staff, seats, service, etc."

Pros: "Being almost home"
Cons: "The quality of care they give everyone that rides the plane"

Pros: "I love Air NZ, near new 777, spacious, noise wasn't bad, excellent staff. Decent food choices for dinner, breakfast was merely OK. Infotainment was top notch on the new Boeing, but lots of unique Air NZ content too. All my 4 domestic flights on A320s the previous week with Air NZ were top notch too."
Cons: "No way to pay to get in to the lounge for a day pass if you dont have airline status. I got accustomed to having it traveling with a coworker with access, but flying solo, in Auckland, no status, no access, would have gladly paid for the privilege."

Pros: "Your flight attendants provide first-class service even in economy."
Cons: "Bathrooms could have been cleaner"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and seemed a bit smaller than usual."

Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Crew are not polite and carry arrogance while talking to the passengers, especially in the economy cabin. The seats are narrow compared to other 777 300 ER flights"

Cons: "Not much food to eat."

Pros: "nothing out of ordinary"
Cons: "The aircraft has no or little serviceable inflight entertainment. The food offered on board is really bad. Any additional water has to be paid for"

Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Xcellent"

Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."

Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"

Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"

Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"

Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."

Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"

Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"

Pros: "The flight didn't feel long at all since I was very comfortable throughout. They offer good on-flight services and an endless list of movies to watch. I give this 9/10."

Pros: "the flight was on time"

Pros: "Emirates is my new favorite airline. Food was excellent, flight attendants were all friendly and professional, the seats were spacious, and there was a great selection of movies."

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."

Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."

Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."

Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"

Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Pros: "The food and tv, and the staff is so helpful"

Cons: "AC and sound system from DXB to BH"

Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."

Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."

Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"

Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "Wish that the airline would have told me in advance that I need an Australia transit visa before I went to the airport."

Pros: "From Los Angeles to Dubai there was Airbus A380 and that was amazing with a lot of fun available like free wifi hundreds of movies etc"
Cons: "I like rvery thing so I can't say any thing every thing was good"

Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"

Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."

Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Otherwise everything was good"

Cons: "Hi do veg meal could have been better and communication about my bags could have been better ."

Pros: "the crew was professional and efficient on board the plane."
Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"

Cons: "Shopping items available."

Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."

Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."

Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."

Cons: "My seat would not recline."

Pros: "Seat and legroom ok. Seats are on the narrow side if you have a large person beside you. Supper was excellent. Breakfast so so."

Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."

Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"

Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."

Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"

Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."
Cons: "Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!"

Pros: "Excellent service for wheelchair passengers"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hours"

Pros: "Staff was welcoming, everything was well organised, food was good. Journey was comforatable ."
Cons: "More choices foe veg meals"

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"

Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Very quiet (A350), good crew who helped direct those unused to flying to the correct class. Good seat comfort and food, very good good entertainment. Toilets were cleaned periodically during the flight."
Cons: "Rather a wait for the toilets at times - not the most efficient layout and not that close to Premium Economy seating."

Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."

Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."

Pros: "Easy boarding, good entertainment. Great crew."
Cons: "Long flight to easy to complain about something. But really no problems here"

Pros: "Mostly the amazing staff on the airplane... I'm pregnant and the staff at JFK were very unpleasant and rude."
Cons: "Staff and tsa at JFK"

Pros: "Crew was helpful and accommodating. The food served on this particular flight was outstanding"
Cons: "Typically cramped seats (I know its what I paid for, but still)"

Pros: "They were able to provide drinks and food at a timely matter"
Cons: "The long flight"

Pros: "The food - best in the sky"
Cons: "Cathay's business class seats are not as wide at Singapore Airlines'' business class seats"

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Another passenger request me move to a window seat from a front row with leg room seat and it was hard for a big guy to go to and from washroom. Plane was hot and sweat throughout the flight making it very uncomfortable. Ran out of food choices for breakfast really fast."

Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"

Cons: "late boarding."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Professional, cheerful, willing to help. from take off till landing"
Cons: "Seating was atrocious. I specifically asked whether I could get an exit row seat (i am 6'4"). I was even willing to pay the extra 200$ for my partner and myself. I was told that there were no open exit row seats. But on boarding, the entire exit row was empty. It stayed that way through the flight. Super annoying."

Cons: "Though nothing completely egregious, my interaction with crew on the flight were the worst I have ever experienced when traveling. The first was after attempting to go to the bathroom mid-flight. This was an 11 hour flight. I'm not sure whether the captain forgot to turn off the seatbelt sign during the middle of the flight or if he anticipated turbulence, but the seatbelt sign was on for at a minimum, 45 minutes. After waking up I had the urge to go to the bathroom and walked back to try to get there. Once close to the bathroom a flight attending pointed in the other direction and said "sit down and put your seatbelt on." I expressed that I had to go to the bathroom and he again just repeated "go put your seatbelt on." I stood for another few seconds in disbelief that I would really be turned away from using the bathroom in the middle of a flight and during this short time of standing there he again repeated: "go put your seatbelt on." I would like to stress that there was absolutely no turbulence at this time. Whether or not this is protocol and any attendant would have told me the same, the attendant could use lessons in how to properly speak to people by having a better tone AND saying please. Explaining the situation would also be helpful instead of just using your power to command another adult to do something. After returning to my seat, I saw multiple other people also try to get up to go, who received the same fate, so it was obvious he was trying to adhere to the rules, but clearly if the fasten seatbelt sign has been on for over an hour at that point, you should be able to be an adult and put the situation in context; people need to use the bathroom on a long flight. My second poor interaction was at the conclusion of the flight. I was listening to music on my phone and hadn't heard the captain announcement that we should begin to prepare for landing. On ANY other flight I have EVER been on, the crew will come around and verbally ask people politely to put their seat up, return trays to their stored position, and unplug any USB electronics. One of the crew, without asking me first or even making eye contact, came up and unplugged my phone from being plugged in and manually put my seat up to upright position and walked away. This might seem like a simple thing, but you should NEVER touch someone else's property. Further, to place me upright without warning was extremely rude. If this flight had been the only flight I had with Cathay Pacific, I would never fly with this airline again, because it would have seemed to me that your crew lack social skills, are impolite, and may have language barriers. Luckily, my trip was round trip from NY to Bali and as such there were multiple connecting flights, and I had good experiences on all the rest. I really wish I had gotten the name of the 2 individuals I had a poor experience with, as I don't think they will help you in securing future customers."

Pros: "Crew was cordial."
Cons: "Again, would it be possible to have more Christian-friendly movies?"

Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"

Pros: "They are nice, let space, shopping options unpaired. Cathay attendants, are they trained to be as nice or are they born like that in Hong Kong?"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"

Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."

Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."

Pros: "Nice service!"

Pros: "Great staff. Very friendly and helpful for those in need :) i wasn't in need but I've watched them help passengers every flight I've taken with Cathay pacific"

Pros: "Liked the added legroom and seating of ecomomy preferred."

Pros: "Service, Food, and every aspect of the flight was the best I've experienced in a long time."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say at all."

Pros: "Beautiful plane and it was well kept. Nice service. Very soft landing."

Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. 1.5 hrs was barely enough to get through baggage claim, customs, baggage recheck, customs again, subway ride to Denver United terminal and sprint 30 gates only to make it 1 minute before the gate closed."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "They delayed the flight like 5 different times and then the luggage took over a half hour"

Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, wishing more crews were as great and friendly."
Cons: "Non business class passengers were constantly using the business class bathroom, curtains were not drawn."

Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "So incredibly cramped and no seat screens to watch movies. Bumpy that that’s no ones fault."

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."

Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"

Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"

Pros: "Bulkhead window seat, very pleasant and informative pilot"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on this flight"

Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"

Pros: "One of the crew members was excellent, kinder than most. My bag made it on the flight in spite of the delay and very tight connection."
Cons: "No plugs in regular economy class makes it hard to use the United app for entertainment."

Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."

Pros: "Flight was short and got to gate on time"
Cons: "sat for about 20 min. before takeoff with no info"

Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."

Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive"
Cons: "Slow boardidng, delayed departure, overcrowded flight, no overhead space"

Cons: "Missed my flight."

Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."

Pros: "On time, very pleasant crew"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."

Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."

Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"

Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."

Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."

Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."

Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."

Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."

Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."

Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."

Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"

Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"

Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."

Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"

Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."

Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"

Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."

Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."

Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"

Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and 45 minutes because engine did not start. Had us deplane. Caused us to miss our connecting flight and we had to wait 6 hours for another one."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."

Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."

Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."

Cons: "Don't fly United"
