Cons: "In Orlando there were no Alaska Airlines Agents until 1:30 in the afternoon. There was a very long line of customers by the time they got there. The kiosks would not print baggage tags, there was no one to drop your bags with. We waited 2 1/2 hours, having to sit on the floor because there are no chairs in the terminal. When we finally got on the plane I witnessed the miss handling of pets being loaded by the baggage handlers. They had 3 pet carriers on the cart. Two were set apart on the bottom with the third tipped diagonally in the the space between on top of the other 2. Then the picked up and plunked down on the belt. That animal would have had no water for the 5.5 hour flight as the dishes in the carrier were spilled over."

As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."

Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and worked hard."
Cons: "Seats were very basic and not as good as the low cost carrier I normally fly out of the UK. Very old and noisy aircraft. Seemed little control over how much hand luggage passengers were bringing onto the aircraft."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Very small cramped aircraft"
Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"
Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."
Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."

Cons: "THE flight from Newark to Montreal was HORRIBLE! the flight was delayed and when we boarded, we were stranded on the taxiways for 2,5 hours. After 20 hours of flying, and you know your last flight was just another hour, I ended up arriving Montreal at 12.30 AM when it should've been 9 PM"
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Cons: "Broken video monitor on my seat and window seat. Ripped and dirty pockets on all the back of the seats in the row in front of me. Just a feeling of disrepair."
Pros: "The controlled and orderly way when boarding."
Cons: "The staff from the desk was unfriendly. On boarding no one showed you where your seat is located. The food was dreadful. The same aweful pasta meal on the outbound journey was served again. During the flight I was feeling very unwell I asked the flight attendant our axeick bag which she brought, but I was told to go to the toilet. She did not return to enquire after my well being. I was in the toilet for 5 minutes. Very uncaring. The tea was cold when served"
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Pros: "United seems to have simplified how it separates the boarding groups, so getting on the plane was well organized. The 787 aircraft was spacious and comfortable, which seems to put both passengers and crew in a good mood. Lots of entertainment options were available, so the three hour flight flew by. And we arrived early! A great experience on United."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Pros: "Service was very good, they were on time and considering the flight time food was good too."
Pros: "Despite sitting in the middle seat and being well over 6 feet, there was room."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."

Pros: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "Although I arrived a few minutes late, the check-in agent managed to get my bag on the flight. When I missed my flight, the agent quickly got me on another flight (with a competitor airline), with no additional charge."
Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."
Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "Crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful Entertainment system was so so good Landed early"
Cons: "Overnight wasn't the easiest flight in the seats Serving people coffee when others are probably trying to sleep probably wasn't the wisest idea either Pre flight queue system is just baffling"
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work with Android 8.0 devices because you decided not to support newer versions? Stop restricting it to higher versions idiots"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "And it was actually terrific. United employees were top shelf at every stop, on every plane. (I did seven flights total.)"
Pros: "Not anything in particular, this was a pretty aweful flight. They at least gave out connection flight information and told passengers which flights would be missed and set those people up in hotels."
Cons: "Plane was fully boarded and as the crew was preparing the cabin, the pilot realized there was a mechanical issue. An hour and half of sitting on the plane with few updates and grumpy people and crew, air being turned on and off as they fixed the issue and no indication when we would actually take off. They should have offered some water and snacks at least and gave more frequent and better updates."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Cons: "Shitty service ,...."
Cons: "Majorly delayed, barely made my connecting flight, My poor body was so confused - "WHY are we up right now, WHY are we running so hard and carrying much weight." I felt exactly like I was finishing a cross country race trying to make my connection, then the gate agents made me check my bags, I'm looking at completely vacant overhead compartments and will never fly this airline ever again. No food. No drinks. Rude and disriptive attendants - let us sleep!"
Pros: "It was great!"
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "The seating was the worst I've ever had in my life and I've traveled my whole life. After I finish this trip I will never take United again. Everything else was wonderful"
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of the weather and then I have to wait more hours in the airport for the next flight.."
Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Pros: "Sat by united pilot who was just on flight to go to training and was with my 10 mo old daughter and was absolutley wonderful, so helpful and Im sure it was not an ideal situation for him. On second flight we sat next to flight attendant and a trainee and made our first flight trip... that could have been awful great! Big thanks to all the staff."
Pros: "The movies were good - glad it was free and nice selection"
Cons: "US Pre-clearance in Dublin was ridiculous. I don't know what else to say about it. They were even holding us going down the escalator to the actual screening part. It was just one crazy queue to another. Will definitely make me think about ever going through Dublin again."
