Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Luggage was not received. Now being told it will take up to 5 days! Unacceptable performance"
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Cons: "Viaje corto"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was late. Airport experience in Frankfurt horrible. It looked like all was intended to increase the delay. They made me miss my train connection"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with plenty of food, drink, entertainment and good service. Flight left on time."
Cons: "The flight departure time was too close to the arrival time so we ended up running thru the Frankfort airport."
Cons: "We booked our plane reservations through Kayak . My sister booked my reservation along with hers at the same time. Kayak put us on different planes at different times on our return flight back to the USA. I had assumed we were flying together ( sisters with the same last names), so I showed up at the airport to find out that I had missed my first flight. I already had a boarding pass for the next flight, but Kayak had canceled me and booked someone else in my seat. No more seats in economy and I had to pay $1750. Euros for another ticket. Why would 2 passengers flying together and booking together be put on different planes and different times. We will NEVER use Kayak again!7"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Cons: "Standing outside of the plane in the freezing hail, when my clothing was completely unequipped for it"
Pros: "The premium economy clas was wonderful. All of the amenities, comfort, room made a long trip far more enjoyable. The crew was right there to help me get to the next gate."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is dreadful. I'm elderly and being forced to climb up and down stairs to the Tarmac with luggage and then crammed into a bus to the terminal was terrible. I would avoid Frankfurt at all costs. Lufthansa needs to take some initiative with this."
Pros: "Staff were amazingly helpful n friendly. Food was yummy."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "priority boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "aisle bulkhead seat: curtai separating business class from economy was hanging over my legs."
Cons: "We were detained at the airport after boarding and then deboarding without information. The entire flight was locked in a room and not allowed to leave with very little explanation as to why. After 5 hours they let us board another plane. There was water and candy supplied as food. It was a joke for anyone with kids or the elderly. Nevermind anyone with health concerns. BAD way to manage a crisis in my opinion. We were treated like cattle. And these were NOT cheap tickets."
Pros: "Air dolomiti - great service, prosecco in a real glass and with small sandwich provided."
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Pros: "We were well taken care off for a short flught"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent on these Star Allisnce international flights booked by United but operated by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is inadequate for international flights. Seats had no cushion left in seat bottoms. It was like sitting on cement."
Pros: "Plane not full so we hat an extra Seat"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight, fun snack (cakes on a plane!), relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Decent legroom. Crew pleasant. Food was very good especially for a very short flight."
Cons: "I did not know I had purchased economy light ticket. With this you can only carry on 18 pounds and must check and PAY to check any other bag. I looked at my reservation from Vaysms and did not see notice of this. Surprised that one hour trip at this price , well over $200, was in this category. Also trying to buy the option for the bag on phone was difficult. Whole page with options would not show and getting English version was difficult probably because page would not fit on screen."
Pros: "Our flight out of Amsterdam was roughly 30 minutes late. Since we were connecting to an International flight to return to the US there was no possibility we would be able to get to the International terminal through security and board our flight in the time available. So, Lufthansa staff met the connecting passengers as we disembarked, shuttled us via bus to the International terminal and ensured we made our connection. Finally, for airline food it was quite good (Vegan)."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "This was NOT a Lufthansa flight. The plane was a United flight. One of the worst I have experienced in 40 years of flying to Europe and Hawaii."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Pros: "Safe and efficient transportation."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't functioning so there weren't any viewing options presented. The crew failed to mention that the United app provides movies on your phone."
Cons: "It was not a Lufthansa flight, as I had bought, but a United flight because of their partnership. The bathroom made me gag, the food and the entertainment left much to be desired but the service was good. Cannot complain about the flight attendants. Entertainment was also very 2008 with tine screens and not able to select what and when to watch. They only had movies and series on loop. Will avoid having to fly United in the future and will make sure I am indeed getting on a Lufthansa plane."
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and attentive. Sitting in Economy plus is acceptable comfort wise. Captain was very communicative when there was a mechanics issue and delay, much appreciated."
Cons: "United check in desk was unnecessarily long wait, other airports/airlines have a better flow. The screens on the seat backs on 767 are ridiculously small and stuttery. The main meal was not very good, pasta sauce was gross, could've done better with prego."
Pros: "We arrived 15 minutes early, which is always great!"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken for dinner and only had manicotti left, which was horrible! No apologies for running out of 1 of the 2 options. The audio was horrible. In order to watch the movies, I had to hold the cord in 2 places in the exact right manner, or it would cut out and there would only be silence. Not fun trying to maintain that position for 9 hours."
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Seat back entertainment? What a joke! It was like watching a movie on a Motorola Razr (or my old Ericsson flip phone). Surly old battle axe sky waitresses. 90s vintage plane interiors. Need I go on?"
Pros: "We cheked in on line At Amsterdam airport at the drop of lugage was a nightmare Line out the door wich made us almost missing the plane"
Cons: "We cheked in on line for our flight Amsterdam Boston Ariiving at 5.05 AM for our first flight to Frankfurt at the lugage drop of desk There was a line out the door wich made us almost mis the plane At the gate they had problems with my carier on The same carier on is traveling with me for more than 15 years and never denied plane acces Result all my creditcards/money and important documents where not longer withs us So we could not buy a drink or food at two airports There was plenty of space in the overhead compartments above our seats That part of our experience was very bad Tnx"
Pros: "The flight was relatively empty, so I got to stretch out across three middle seats and sleep for the entire duration of the flight. The crew did a wonderful job of serving the food and clearing away very quickly. They were very friendly overall."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen -- but I barely had a chance to use it, so I'm not complaining."
Pros: "All except food"
Pros: "A very average experience. Nothing amazing."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed, crew at the counter would not give updates or be kind enough with the situation."
Pros: "Food was nice."
Cons: "2hrs delay caused major inconvenience on my schedule."
Pros: "It was on time and flights itself was pleasant."
Cons: "My luggage is lost and I hope it will come on the next flight to Yerevan."

Pros: "The food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was completely awful"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled in the last minute, information was scarce"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Better quality of food"
Cons: "Same as before"
Cons: "- Boarding: was rainy and is quite complicated when you need to take the bus; All the other difficulties were more related to the weather. However, for a ~260 EUR flight, the lack of comfort and basic food were unexpected."
Cons: "Food and not enough entertainment"
Pros: "Over all was ok nothing exceptional but boarding was very slow, and slk of us with connections did not make it as the luggage came on the carousel 60 min afterward checked the security. Will not use them again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
Cons: "Cramped plain; leg room no existing; on-board service mediocre at best! But I guess you get what you paid for...."
Pros: "Business class was very roomy. There was easy access to storage. The flight crew was extremely courteous and did their very best to see to the needs of the passengers."
Cons: "The seats, when in reclining position, could have been a bit more comfortable."
Pros: "Very caring flight attendants, awesome service."
Cons: "Took too long to get our luggage."
Pros: "Arrived to Toronto on time. Flight attendants provided excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing to mention."
Pros: "No way to reschedule if NOT STAYING FOR HOURS IN LINE"
Pros: "The price was ok for last minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess no order by back and window seats first"
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no Wifi, the seats were a bit small, and the connecting flight to moscow was only about 40 mins from the arrival, and we were delayed and I missed my connection. They should not plan connections this close."
Pros: "fast crew service"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, each arrival was not too late."
Cons: "Had to check a bag at the gate, despite being under the two-bag limit. However I was not charged (as my destination was intercontinental)."
Pros: "Very good pilots, good flight without any noise or air pockets."
Cons: "The flight back departed in a delay of 40 minutes, we lended very late."
Cons: "No space"
Pros: "Excellent service better than expected accommodations. On time."
Cons: "I have to pay for baggage in the airport becase it wasn't included. And while i was ordering tickets through kayak i cant choose option it wasn't offered"
Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "There was a lot of passengers crowding the aisles making is very difficult to get around and the crew did not seem to do anything about it. The person in front of people up standing around a lot and even had her hand on my entertainment screen. She also did not seem to care if the seatbelt sign was on our not. The boarding was just chaos with little direction and of course everyone pushing to be first on the plane."
Pros: "nice clean aircraft"
Cons: "they did to run late and lost my bags on both occasions i flew with them."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my hand luggage, but the Amsterdam personnel attached to it a tag without any flight information, so this luggage missed my plane in Warsaw on the connecting flight and arrived later that day as misplaced piece. LOT needs to fix the hand luggage tagging system on connecting flights."
Pros: "Very efficient, professional and friendly"
Cons: "My bag didn't arrive in Warsaw. I asked the LOT representative at JFK to verify that my bag was on the flight between NYC and Warsaw. She said that it was, but it wasn't there when I arrived"
Pros: "The boarding and the flight itself was fast as there were a lot of people for connecting flights in Warsaw."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1.5h which is not ok. I see that for LOT is a standard practice unfortunately."
Pros: "I liked the new modern Dreamliner, the in-flight food, the entertainment, and the comfort."
Cons: "I was I could have stayed on vacation longer."
Pros: "Ground crew did a good job rescheduling and arranging hotel"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "they were not very late - within one hour."
Cons: "For three of us we had only one bag to check. They charged us 70 euro for that bag. All their flights were 30-60 minute late."
Cons: "Please note that Economy class requires separate luggage fee (70 EUR in airport) even if customer service confirmed by phone that your class includes it."
Pros: "The initial flight was delayed and they sent an agent to escort us quickly through the airport and ensure we didn't miss the flight."
Cons: "Unpleasant crew members"
Pros: "Food and service were ok."
Cons: "I flew in Premium, but I had to call the airline to have the seat assigned. I could not choose the seat online although the website said I could choose a seat ahead of time. The only way to see the arrangement of seats was through seatguru.com. The best seats for the Premium Class are 4A, 4B and 4F and 4G, which are the first row in Premium. The rest of them have legs or boxes under the seat in front of you, so there is really now way you can stretch your legs fully under the seat in front of you during the flight. I was able to secure 4G for my return flight from Warsaw, but going to Warsaw from O'Hare I was put into 6B, no proper room for the right leg. They did not let us use the Business Class bathroom, which was much closer. We had to go all the way to the bathroom behind the row 19. Very inconvenient. They allow dogs in the Premium cabin, so if you are allergic to dogs brace yourself. I fly LOT only when I have no other option."
Cons: "The cost to seat comfort was not in harmony."
Cons: "My first flight from budapest to warsaw was delayed 4 hours and no gate was scheduled. No one was at any desk to help answer questions about connecting flights. When we finally got on the plane and landed, I had to sprint through the warsaw airport in order to make my next flight. ."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice!"
Pros: "Boarding went easily the flight was quick and filled with snacks"
Pros: "LOT was very helpful in rescheduling my flight over the phone."
Cons: "The flight was severely delayed out of Chisinau, for unexplained reasons. I expect the airport was to blame. Because of this I didn't take either flight to Warsaw or Chicago and rebooked a flight for the next day."
Pros: "Flight attendant made me a cup of decaf coffee. It was really good. And she found artificial sweetener."
Cons: "Boarding announcements in Warsaw for the flight to New York were ONLY in Polish. This left many passengers confused. I could understand this if the flight were to a Polish destination. During the flight, intercom announcements overrode the Entertainment System at FULL VOLUME - EVERY TIME. it is as though they wanted to maximize our discomfort. I would not fly with Lot again."
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"
Pros: "Just I had flight."
Cons: "When I got bording pas I don't have sate number and zone number. when I ask many times just they told me wait.....I had many flights from different air lines but I didn't saw like that."
Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."
Pros: "considering all the delays, both in delay in leaving Amsterdam and holding pattern due to thunderstorms in Toronto all went well in a very long day."
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "Great airline for food and service."
Cons: "For couples traveling in business Air Canada's seating is designed to de-couple by placing barriers between seats . They need to try Emerites to check out how a pod should work Entertainment is limited"
Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "They lost our luggage not only on the way to our destination but also on the way home both times in Toronto"
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Not anyone's fault --- delayed due to Fog. Then on rout to Ottawa when they started selling food, they ran out of the main breakfast meals and or cheese plates by isle 19."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Cons: "The crew didn't finish the inflight service so a bunch of us didn't get drinks or snacks. This was all the more frustrating when the flight then circled Ottawa for 20 minutes before landing."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft - 767"
Cons: "What food? Salt pretzels are not even truly safely edible!"
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"
Pros: "Great crew and on schedule."
Cons: "One of the better flights I have taken no complaints."
Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."
Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, plane A/C not working. Waited for another plane. They tried to fix the first plane but they just delayed getting another plane."
Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."
Cons: "No good movies or music"
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system is crappy and looks like it's from the 1990's. It needs a serious overhaul. I reserved windows seats and showed up to check and had been placed in the middle."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Cons: "There was no access to movies."
Pros: "boarding was quick, organized."
Cons: "my in-seat personal tv was broken. If there hadn't been other empty seats, I would have had to sit with no IFE the whole flight."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"
Pros: "as above"
Pros: "Never got on this flight. We were never given an email to self check in, and we're unable to board 45 mins before at the gate coming frim anotthe flight. They overbooked this flight & sold our tickets, and then told us we couldn't get on flight. Now we are out $2500 buying new tix!"
Cons: "All the above. A simple check in email would have averted this problem. All the other airlines do this. We were under the presumption that we had to check in at airport when we didn't get check-in notice. Furthermore, they sold our tickets, so we're down $2500 and they doubled their profit. It would be hard for me to say I will use Air Canada or kayak in the future."
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual, and I always enjoy the unique selection of international film in the entertainment system."
Cons: "That old plane was VERY drafty around the emergency exit. I can't remember ever feeling cold on a plane. Usually it's the opposite. But here was a consistent stream of ice cold air leaking through the airframe around the emergency exit. It was cold enough that I had to put several layers of blankets up on the wall and lean against them all the way home. In addition, my seat was so "well-used" that it provided very little support and often felt as though I was sitting on a bench. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."
Cons: "Salty pretzels!"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"
Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."
Cons: "we no have entertainment for 8 hours. 20 TV's no worked in the plain"
Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
Cons: "United is awesome."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The check in process was a nightmare at Amsterdam airport. Partly due to the not being able to check bag straight through, multiple visits to counters, long lines for dropping off bag, and in ability to check in on line or on app from either Lufthansa or United. Each site said visit the other site."
Pros: "Not too late. Older 767-400 planes are not comfortable but are reliable."
Cons: "Amsterdam airport Schiphol is among the very worst in Europe. I will never fly thru Amsterdam again. Truly miserable experience despite being a Business class traveler. The United crew was mediocre at best. Food was not good. Disappointing."
Cons: "flight was late close to 4 hrs"
Pros: "Safety and crew’s are best"
Cons: "It would be great if airlines would identify where infants are sitting when it comes to upgrading seats. I spent $350 so my husband and I could be kicked and pushed non-stop by a screaming and crying infant. If we had known, we would’ve saved our money and just sat in economy."
Pros: "Very well-run flight. Crew was on top of everything. Very cheery."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better. If you have 5 groups you should have 5 lines — not 2. Also the terminal in Holland was extraordinarily cold."
Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Great. I had no issues with boarding."
Pros: "It was nice and smooth. The crew was great, especially Urere, our stewardess. Comfort and food were good, on par with the nickel diming of airlines."
Cons: "Comfort can be greatly improved."
Pros: "I had economy plus so was comfortable. The check in and boarding was great, no complains there. Flight was before time both ways."
Cons: "For a 10.5 hour flight the food served was not enough. I am a 123 lb female and was hungry. I always carry snacks with me because of previous experiences like this. Also when you are at a window seat it is hard to get up frequently to even get water as the people next to you are sleeping. The stewardess came by twice offering only water. I remember before they offered juice and came around more often. They gave 1 small bottle of water after serving the meal. Wish that was a bigger bottle."
Pros: "The availability of media to watch on the long overseas flight was helpful to avoid boredom."
Cons: "Flight attendants passed out headsets to hear the media, my set was missing one of the foam ear pads. When I called it to the attention of a flight attendant, she took my set and did not return with one, causing me to search out my telephone headset."
Pros: "New Polaris Business"
Cons: "Cabin crew"
Pros: "For the most part the staff made an attempt to help me get onto a flight. I think."
Cons: "I had to go on my trip a few days later due to a work conflict. I never changed my itinerary because I didn’t think it mattered. I bought a new one way ticket on a different airline and went to get on my return flight that I had paid for and was still receiving emails about. I got to the airport to check in for my return flight and it had been canceled because I didn’t get on the first leg. I was never notified and they couldn’t get me on the flight I wanted because it was leaving in less than hour(which is a stupid rule). And to get me on a flight the next day would cost $2500. No thanks. And before anyone tells me that it’s in the fine print that they cancel a flight if you don’t show up, save it. We all know people don’t read all that. Be a human being. So if your plans change, make sure you officially change your plans, because they may go above, but probably not beyond. Oh and it took quite a long time for them to figure out what happened. If they had realized and I didn’t spend so much time on the phone with customer service, I might’ve been outside the hour window requirement."

Pros: "I did like that it was pretty fast"
Cons: "Crew was rude, super unfriendly and not understanding with my toddler"
Pros: "For the movies that are only viewable try the united app. They have very few licenses for viewing so if you don't grab a movie once you begin you will get an error messsge all tru the 8 hour flight. The air steward just said it is what it is and that I wasn't paying for it anyway . That the little screen in front of the seat from 1988 was enough .."

Cons: "Plane sat on rinway in Newark. For 4 hours before takeoff with no explanation provided. I miissed my connection to Dubrovnik. I was flown from munich to frankfurt and then to zagreb. I was put up in a very low class hotel. I aarived in dubrovnik at noon the following day. This caused me great anxiety and aggravation and a losd of a full day of vacation."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, efficient, quick. The food was better than similar airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment & TV system was poor!!"
Cons: "Air temperature was too warm which caused nausea."
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."
Cons: "I think Kayak wasn't clear that Lufhansa and United are partners....all that Kayak put on my ticket was United. When I went to JFK I could not find United international and the airport info people said it's Lufhatnasa and then when I went to Schipol airport and went to Lufhtansa they said there is a United international check in. Kayak cost me a lot of walking and delays because they were not clear on what airline out of which airport."
Cons: "Sorry not to have had recreatiegebied towel before Dinner."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an additional 3 hours on a 2 hour layover. We left 5 hours later. It was exhausting! worst airline ever. I will never fly united again."

Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "The international flights were good - slightly more room and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "The domestic legs were annoying. Very coach experience."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Giveaway was the bathrooms when we had just boarded. One of the stewards had an attitude. Entertainment system stopped many times. United did offer a "recompense. " However, my touch monitor was not responsive; so was for the person who sat behind me as he kept poking my headrest. Boarding line did not move for a long time."
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Cons: "Entertainment Did not work properly."
Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."

Pros: "Wonderful assist personal. Plenty of water/fluids and food"
Cons: "PA was far too loud!"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very friendly, helpful and wonderful experience with them. I appreciate the flight leaving and arriving close to scheduled time."
Cons: "No USB charge connectors/power outlets (integral these days on a long international flight). The quality of in seat tv screen is mediocre - best to watch on your own device (but then you need the USB connection that is missing on this flight). The wifi kept on dropping in the plane (both ways). The food is not as good as served on other airlines and they ran out of dishes both ways and we did not have choices and had to eat what was available (which was not good either). Should indicate on seat selection when making purchase if there will be items below seat such as metal boxes that will limit legroom more than for other seats. I was placed at such a seat both ways, and had no legroom for over 8 hrs each way. :/"
Pros: "Initially, the price"
Cons: "Had to change outbound flight which Lufthansa said I could not do through them and instead had to do via the travel agency. The agency contradicted that, saying that the airline could have done it. The agency took 24 hours to change my flight after me calling them every 2 hours. Ultimately I was rebooted for 2 days later with various bits of inconsistent info along the way. What a circus that was. Worst part was the departure time of the return flight. Lufthansa and United (codeshared) showed 10am as the time on some screens but 11am on another. I still never understood the actual schedule."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "there weren't any movie options. the crew put on three or four movies that started and ended at their own designated time."
Pros: "I like the crew. They were very friendly and great."
Cons: "The entertainment was terrible. On the way to Amsterdam, it was an old TV that had a few channels that looped the same thing over and over again. On the way back to Washington, DC, the TV didn't work."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Eventually they moved us through realizing they were going to have an empty plane if they didn't"
Cons: "Terrible check in. Thought I reserved a seat on Lufthansa only to find out that United changed it."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and even fun"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. I believe it was broken."
Pros: "the United app that let me watch movies from my own device. The flight attendant gave me an extra blanket."
Cons: "the plane was very old and didn't have the entertainment options that newer planes have. The screen was so small and nearly impossible to see when the person in front of me reclined. The toilets weren't very clean. The food was very mediocre. I have a dairy intolerance, and both options contained dairy products. There was no lactose free or diabetic special meal option. There was an hour and a half delay to repair something on the plane when we made an emergency medical landing in Boston. I didn't mind the landing; I minded the excessive delay and wonder what would have happened if we didn't stop in Boston? What would have happened to the plan?"
Pros: "On broading support was outstanding. As this was our first international trip we appreaciated all the help provided. The food was excellent as well as comp drinks."
Cons: "Could not see outside the plane. Maybe camera pointing below the airplane and its signal feed into the television channel.."
Pros: "The flight landed early."
Cons: "United Priority Gold Status were placed in Group 2 boarding?!"
