Airline reviews

Pros: "Hainan airline it's just amazing."
Cons: "They did everything on high customer expectations level."

Cons: "I miss the flight and I need to change it please"

Cons: "Poor connection"

Cons: "More movies in different languages"

Cons: "Airline lounges"

Cons: "Airline Lounges"

Pros: "Crew is nice!"
Cons: "The screen/entertainment is totally not working, and it’s not only my seat, it’s more than 4 seats not working just around my area and the crew cannot fix it. So we spent 12-13 hours without anything to watch or listen. The crew told us such Boeing 787 international flights in Hainan airline was used to run China domestic lines and the entertainment system was ruined by Chinese older passengers who do not know how to use it, but this sounds like a really stupid excuse for what happened, because there is no visible damage to any hardware of the entertainment system. I’m not suggesting taking Hainan airline until they fix this issue. By the way, on my return flight, my entertainment system works fine, but there is one person who sit in the front row had bad luck. Again, this is not occasional insident, it’s happening widely in this route."

Pros: "Better than US airlines in service and comfort"

Cons: "I had to cancel my fight because my name did not perfectly match my passport. I got no refund and had to pay for a new flight."

Pros: "flight crew is pleasant. cabin and toilets are clean."
Cons: "I missed my connection to Washington DCA. Had to rebook for another overnight flight on United, which gets me into IAD in the morning. That is an extra expense for me. Hainan Airlines would not provide overnight accommodation in Seattle. poor selection of English language movies/TV"

Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and their English was reasonable. They fly the same 787 - 8 planes that they do from LAX so business class is big."
Cons: "The boarding process is terrible. It's a cattle call. There's no priority boarding, just everybody lines up and goes. There is however priority bus service out to the jetway."

Cons: "The flight was listed on the boards as leaving almost 2 hours late. We left to determine what was happening because we would miss our connection in Beijing if true. We had to go through security twice to do this. The flight was not changed to the correct time on the board until it was boarding for the scheduled time. Meanwhile we worried we would miss our next flight. HU7606 May 26, 2018. Very stressful."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Video feed for Movies went down in my part of the cabin after an hour and could never be fixed."

Pros: "Good movie options."

Pros: "Good movie options"
Cons: "Some kind of squabble broke out and it seemed to take the flight attendants a while to settle the people down. The menu said that snacks were available but I never saw any offered. Attendants came around regularly with hot water but no refills for other drinks. My tray table was broken. my food tray slid into my lap because the table wasn't sitting horizontally. Could not check in online, cannot check for 2nd (connecting) flight when checking in for first flight in person in China. As a non Chinese citizen you cannot check in via the kiosk. It's a pain."

Pros: "The service is outstanding."
Cons: "All so good"

Pros: "The flight itself was great! The cabin crew were friendly and welcoming. At the boarding gate, i suppose because it was a domestic flights the airport staff made all announcements in Chinese but I was able to follow along well enough to board the correct flight"
Cons: "A few more English announcements prior to boarding would have been more helpful. But I understand that i perhaps was the only foreigner there so may not be practical haha"

Cons: "Management is not strict. Too many people standing at the back talking all the way. It bothers others to sleep. No one care about it."

Pros: "The service is good"
Cons: "You need to pick up your luggage and check in again even you already buy a connected ticket at this company."

Cons: "Can get refunds on double booked flights"

Pros: "Everything was clean and well appointed. The air attendants were helpful and friendly. The seat was fine and they provide a nice little back pillow & blanket in economy. The food was tasty and simple which is good for long flights. Not overly salted. I found it to be a satisfying experience in economy."
Cons: "All was fine"

Pros: "The flight went smoothly, once we began."

Pros: "Food was quite good and there were plenty of TV and movie options to choose from. Little perks like warm washcloths before meals and a packet with slippers, an eye mask and a a toothbrush were a nice touch for an economy seat. Staff had a very helpful attitude."

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "There was no vegetarian food."

Cons: "One has to rush to be on the plane because the take off time is half an hour earlier, and we didn't get any notice beforehand."

Pros: "Overall service was good. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Check in was efficient and fairly quick. There are signs in Chinese and English so it is not too difficult to find out where you need to go."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 3 hours and not much communication about the delay. They made an announcement in Chinese and everyone started lining up. My gut instinct told me the flight was delayed because i saw food being stacked at the counter and then the peoole in front of the line was picking the food up and sitting back down. That is my only real complaint about this airline. The food was was okay."

Pros: "Exceptional service"

Cons: "4 hr delay"

Cons: "If there are empty first row seats, with extra leg room, I don't see why you couldn't let people use them just because they didn't pay the extra $100. It's absurd that once we are 40 thousand feet in the air you would enforce keeping those seats empty instead of increasing the happiness/comfort level of at least some people aboard. Also the food quality should improve."

Cons: "I was disappointed with the airports in China"

Pros: "staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "no slippers were given, only socks"

Pros: "Loved that they showed season 1 of "Atlanta" in its entirety!"

Pros: "flight was great and the staff was friendly. my special meal arrived as requested."
Cons: "Flight left and arrived by bus to the plain. I hate that..."

Cons: "The domestic flight from Guangzhou to Beijing was canceled so I missed my connecting flight to Beijing. The airline was very difficult to work with and eventually they got me a flight to Boston two days later."

Pros: "The seat is ok"
Cons: "The first flight was canceled with no reason. No one sent me a notice and we had to beg the crew to find us a different airline to fly with. There was dellay in both flights. Will think twice next time before buying a ticket with Hainan Airlines"

Pros: "Best service with genuine hospitality. Wish all airlines were like Hainaun airlines"

Cons: "delayed flight"

Cons: "Wifi is not available. It said wifi is available but later I was told only the business seats or higher level seats can enjoy it. 2h Delay without any compensation which made me go to U.S.A. without my baggage."

Pros: "It seemed like the beverage tray was on a constant loop. Made staying hydrated very easy! Staff was also very friendly and considerate - one of the attendants snuck a sandwich onto my tray while I was passed out."

Pros: "Staff and crew remained polite and professional in the face of some difficult, older Floridians (Sorry to all of the decent Floridians out there). One young flight attendant made a HUGE effort to turn around their mood. He wasn't very successful, but it was a valiant attempt."
Cons: "Boarding was a little stressful, but I think that had more to do with some belligerent, unprepared travelers than the staff and crew."

Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good. Seats were ok, like any airline."
Cons: "Food was not good."

Pros: "没有语言障碍,交流方便。服务也不错。"

Cons: "The connection btween Shangjai and Beijing was terriblle. On my way to Shanghai from Beijing I missed my flight because of your airline. There was no one to help me to resolve the problem. I am an experince traveler and never had this attitude from an airline before."

Pros: "They reimbursed us 500RMB for the flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 10 hours. During this time, the only food we received was a hot pocket and some cookies. They offered no explanation for the delay and did not even alert us of the delay through email or any other communications, so I did not find out until I landed in Seattle from New York."

Pros: "Their business class is great. When we had to change planes in Beijing (we flew from Shanghai to Chicago by way of Beijing), they sent someone to guide us from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. Since most of the signs at the airport were not that understandable, it relieved us of stress. And, of course, it's nice to be picked up by limousine and driven to the airport! And flat beds, excellent food, caring flight attendants."

Cons: "I have to take my own big luggage to catch next flight. Not convenient."

Cons: "Not my type of food"

Pros: "The crew was very good and very attentive!"
Cons: "The boarding process.... we had to change gates kind of last minute and from there on it was a bit chaotic ... we boarded via buses and then had to climb stairs to enter our airplane."

Pros: "Crew attentive"
Cons: "Check in REALLY slow. Seat space unacceptably too small. Couldn’t hear entertainment sound over engine noise with earphones so could not use entertainment. Need better earphones. Chair wouldn’t recline."

Pros: "Good service good flight fair food and nice seat."
Cons: "Biggest issue the start very lax re security, 2 people never wore their seatbelts at any time, take off and landing. They hardly checked anything."

Pros: "Air Canadas flights were on time and run very well. Wasn't impressed with the food choices but felt that what was provided was of good quality."
Cons: "My girlfriend has a nut allergy and we asked if a particular bread contained nuts and flight attendant basically said they don't know what's in the food. I don't think that's acceptable."

Pros: "AC 018 takes the shortest route from Shanghai to Montreal. The check in and boarding were like a breeze. Cabin was clean, staff were amiable and hard working. The variety of drinks were plenty, the food matched the standard of cost efficiency flight ticket so how could you complain it? On board TV/Movie has new coming features such as HBO's Game of The Thorne, season 7. It was a comfortable and pleasant journey with the team of AC 018. Merci beaucoup!"

Cons: "With basically all my flights on Air Canada, there were significant delays. The delays on this flight caused me to almost miss my connection. I had to run full speed to make it to the next flight, and the attendants on this flight were very terse announcing as we were landing "Do not ask us about your connections; we have no information. Do not ask us about your luggage; we have no information" With other airlines in the past, if I have had a flight delayed by an hour, the attendants have announced where I should be headed for my connection, or have called ahead to the connecting flight (if within the same airline" and asked them to wait for us. I didn't feel that AC did anything to help make up for the fact that my flights were so late. Almost ally other AC flights on this trip we're also delayed."

Pros: "Friendly folks"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled, and there wasn't even bad weather at either airport. I still don't know why the flight was cancelled. My alternate flight had to be from a different airport and that flight was also delayed. I went from a non-stop flight to a flight with a layover... a 7 hour layover. Was not fun sleeping at the airport. On top of that, I had paid to select my seat and it wasn't honored on the flight back. Somehow I was unassigned because of the flight change during departure but I was still charged."

Pros: "Overall good flight in terms of smoothness, safety, timeliness, etc."
Cons: "No enrertsinment without downloading google app for phone or pad. Short announcement about this made shortly before flight and we did not react in time to do it. Thought I would read but overhead lights broken; complained three times before fixed."

Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."

Cons: "Our direct flight to Montreal was canceled due to mechanical issues. The rebooking process was discombobulating and we ended up arriving at our destination after the rerouting that was stressful and ensured that we lost a whole day of our vacation time. Our flight back the entertainment system in our seats did not function."

Pros: "Decent movies."
Cons: "I separated from my 2 daughters and husband because they did not allow me to pick seats or check in online. I was stuck in the seat immediately in front of the stinky bathroom in a seat that didn't recline, had no hdmi charging port and was pretty much continuously crowded by bathroom-goers. In fact, so many bathroom goers grabbed the seat in front of me that they touched my movie screen about 7-8 times, causing the menu to pop up and interrupt the movie. Otherwise, the food was gross and one of the flight attendants was very grumpy."

Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."

Pros: "plenty of room, media player, wifi, nice selection of snacks and meals."

Pros: "Quick professional services"

Pros: "The counter employees as well as the people who helped me navigate the airport ( I am disabled) were very helpful."
Cons: "The crew on the plane seemed very overburdened and somewhat annoyed by passengers. Maybe they were having a challenging day. I don't know. I didn't even want to ask for a glass of water."

Pros: "Service food on time flights"
Cons: "No movie for such a long flight."

Pros: "Seats"

Pros: "clean, polite, helpful crew"
Cons: "obtaining boarding passess via smartphone"

Cons: "Our flight was over an hour late getting to the airport in Morocco and when there we were left standing in the jetway after scanning our tickets for a good 30 minutes. The flight was so delayed, many of us missed our connecting flights and had to be issued later flights. I was originally booked to fly out the next day, which would NOT have worked out but was booked instead for 5 hours later. I stood downstairs for 2 hours trying to find my baggages, however, they never came where they were supposed to come out and I received 3 different answers on where they were. "They're at carousel 5," "you don't have to get them they will be checked to your final destination," no they're at carousel 3, so you can grab quickly and recheck upstairs." My bag wasn't at any of these places. I finally found a nice air Canada agent who took the time out of his day to actually go to the back and check on my bag to which he returned 10 minutes later with it. It was just "circling around back there" with nowhere to go. Had I not been persistent, my bag would not have made it to my final destination. I wish the story ended there but it does not. After a 5 hour wait, I sat at my gate which continued to say "American Airlines" I asked the gate if United Airlines flight was still leaving from there she just stated she "had no idea" frustrated, with no gate to go to with a flight leaving in 1 hour nobody seemed to know where our new flight was boarding. After 3 gate changes we were finally able to board our flight to D.C. I am sorely disappointment in both Air Canada and the YUL system. This would be my second time flying this way and both times I have had issues. It's too bad. I do not plan on doing so again."

Pros: "I liked the friendly crew members"
Cons: "1. Could not reserve seat on the return flight and still got charged for it. 2. My seat did not have the new outlet for phone jack and USB charger. I had to use old headset outlet on the arm-rest which did not work. 3. Planes delayed on both directions."

Pros: "Didn't take it"
Cons: "Customer service in Toronto did not know how to get us to Venice before our cruise departed. Wild goose chase sent us on a one hour, $26 train ride to Milan central station where we learned the train air canada told us to take didn't exist. Suddenly forced to take a 2.5 hr, $500 cab ride to Venice."

Pros: "It is one step back from Air Canada Rouge but it is the best airline flying to LA"
Cons: "I missed the blankets and pillows"

Pros: "Air Canada Rouge business class is excellent I would recommend it to anyone"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like"

Pros: "Comfort, decent entertainment selection, crew was pleasant and professional, boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Food = bland mystery meat entree."

Pros: "We had to sleep on floor of Toronto airport all night"
Cons: "Bumped from flight no compensation"

Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."

Cons: "Horrible to fly Air Canada"

Cons: "There was absolutely nothing that I found to complain about"

Cons: "Didn't accept my carry-on that was always accepted before with all airlines.At least from Mtl to Quebec,i would have been able to do it.I will reconsider travelling with A C ???"

Cons: "What a mess. Every DELTA flight I have been on in recent months has had terrible delay issues - I'm cancelling my credit card."

Cons: "I was dozing when the attendant came around- as a result went through whole flight without water!"

Cons: "Everything costs extra: picking seats, pillows, blankets, no Economy Plus for Star Alliance elites, any food, etc."

Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"

Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."

Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."

Pros: "Loved the plane."
Cons: "I tried to get business class it was full. In general, I don't spend for business class because AC BC is so poor (horrible food, iffy seats, broken entertainment systems). But this plane was different, unfortunately I couldn't get on."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and nice."
Cons: "The flight took off late and did not make up the lost time during the flight."

Pros: "Arrived early at check in counter and was offered to catch an earlier flight"
Cons: "Was not able to use a toddler booster for my daughter"

Pros: "The crew were terrific, business class splendid, information readily available but not incessant."
Cons: "We left 90 minutes late: 30 minutes because Air Canada arrived in Shanghai late, then another hour because we'd missed our window. As a result, I missed my connection and had to spend the night in an airport hotel in Montreal (which Air Canada paid for). These things happen, and they were very professional and sympathetic about it, but under the circumstances I can't give it more than 3 stars overall."

Pros: "The ice cream and the one woman in customer service that actually seemed to care."
Cons: "My husband and I were flying to Italy, on the first leg of our flight neither of our screens worked so we had six hours with no entertainment. They gave us a card to make it up to us but (wisely) don't tell you what it is for. It turned out to be for 10% off your next flight if you book it through their website within a year. Useless. On our return flight we were delayed on the tarmac for over an hour with no air conditioning, they originally said they were waiting for a signature but then said that there was something wrong with the engines that help us take off, then the cabin filled with a fuel smell, then they said they had brought the wrong item for the repair and we were waiting for the correct one. When we finally took off my husband's screen didn't work yet again and this was a 9 hour flight. The flight attendant said that some of the screens hadn't worked for a while ( probably cheaper to hand out useless discounts than to fix them.). We received another 10% off card, which we cannot combine or transfer, again useless. We missed our connection because of the delay, they booked us on another flight but because they didn't tell us that we had to pick up our luggage or where (it was on a different carousel than the rest of the luggage from our flight) and that we had to go through customs we (and many others) missed that flight too. We finally got a flight out the next morning and they put us up at a hotel. We both had to miss another day of work and it was quite an ordeal. My husband's screen worked for almost all of that last flight before it seized up. We didn't bother to report it that time since another 10% off coupon wasn't going to do us any good. Overall it is concerning that Air Canada doesn't seem to be maintaining their planes in optimal condition and that their idea of compensation involves them making even more money from me. Never again."

Pros: "The flight was on time, boarding was well-organized, the service was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The line to the washroom was quite long - there were only two washrooms at the back of the plane."

Pros: "Everything was ok ! I love late departures"
Cons: "From Cancun to Mtl, we had to wait 2 hours before boarding!"

Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."

Cons: "The crew"

Pros: "I liked the flight when I got off the plane because it was over"
Cons: "The whole experience was horrible, the landing, the food, the noise, the unconfortable seats, the plane was too hot and especially the bad landing...never again...it was the worst trip I have ever taken and I fly 2 times a year."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent and the liquor selection exceeded expectation. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn't give us US customs forms, had to ask, only got one, had to ask again, and then rushed to fill them out and THEN customs threw them out and we had to do everything on the computer. I would think that the crew would be familiar with this process at their home airport and not waste our time. Also, no one could tell us if we would have to go through security again and if we could buy any liquids in Paris duty free to bring home due to the liquid rule and going through security. Just a wildly uninformed airline (asked our crew and other AC officials) they couldn't answer a few simple questions."

Pros: "Prompt, courteous staff, clean ."
Cons: "Don't love having to watch movie on a phone. Would prefer screens on plane."

Cons: "I did not like that I could not use my own ear phones to watch movies during my flight. Also they do not offer visa debit on flights so I was not able to purchase ear phones. Which made the 4.5 hour flight long. And my head rest was very uncomfortable, I am short and it pushed my head forward too much which hurt my neck. It would be nice to have the option to remove it. Also on a 4.5 hour flight they should offer free little snack like peanuts or a fruit cup."

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and accommodating."

Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to crew unavailability. Entertainment did not work due to connectivity issued during flight. No cookies nor snacks were served vs outbound flight where they offered 3 snacks!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were proficient and courteous."
Cons: "The seats are horrible and gave me backache. Hardly any cushion that could provide any form of comfort to an 11 hour flight and the recline was nonexistence"

Cons: "I ran to the gate from my previous flight, but it turned out this flight had been delayed. The flight boards and United app didn't show that though."

Pros: "Had the whole of 3 seats to myself. Was a fast and pleasant and direct flight. Flight attendants gave me the option to take the row. Nice of her."
Cons: "Food selection and tastiness ... room for improvement."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment that’s all"
Cons: "Better crew and food"

Cons: "I was flying with Air Canada. The UI for watching movies was not good, it had a hard time to respond to the inputs. It was also hard to move the videos forward to the part I needed. Plus, the audio wasn't working well with my own earphones."

Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "It was an older airplane. For a long flight from Montreal to San Francisco, a plane with more room would be more humane. People were lined up for the bathrooms most of the trip since could not use the small first class bathroom. If one wanted a meal, it was one you had to pay for. Broken monitor"

Cons: "Delayed flight, seat didn’t recline"

Pros: "In flight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Departure was 45-60 minutes late because the plane arrived late. We sat on the runway for ~ 20 mins after landing in Chicago because there was no available jetway. Passport “spot check (?!) at jetway for all deplaning passengers created a slow crush once we left the plane."

Pros: "the crew was amazing and pleasant."
Cons: "everything went well and what i was expecting."

Pros: "There is nothing to like about Air Canada's Rouge service. Their sardine seat layouts are amongst the worst in the industry."
Cons: "1. Seat comfort. 2. On-time departure. 3. Boarding Procedures. 4. Pre-boarding announcements."

Pros: "Nice flight!"
Cons: "Huge line to take off at Newark Airport"

Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "All was good. Didn’t have any problems."

Pros: "- Food was good, (3 cup chicken) - Ontime departure - Early arrival - Friendly attentive staff"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was in schedule. Bonus was those smaller extra foam pillows in Polaris."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Made great time despite being grounded for over 1.5 hours due to PVG ground control. Only arrived 10 mins late."
Cons: "Got bit six times by a rogue mosquito that made it onboard during boarding."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Travel plans will be impacted due to lost luggage"

Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"

Pros: "the comped hotel"
Cons: "Improper handling of situation. There was flight scheduled later, but CS agent kept jerking us around. By the time I reached the United counter, the next flight was full. My total flight time was 36 hours. I still can’t believe that the pilot was missing. Worse yet, the agent at the gate could have made things much easier instead of telling everyone that a pilot was on his way to the airport."

Pros: "Entertainment, and leg space."
Cons: "Full plane, long wait to use lavatory. Crew was good, but should have upped their game under the circumstances, especially with regards to keeping the lavatory clean. The noodles for breakfast turned out to be porridge, and went straight to the waste basket."

Pros: "On time and flight crew were very courteous and professional."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"

Pros: "1 hour late"

Pros: "Flight was on time and on schedule,"
Cons: "The cost of a one way ticket was more than a return flight The entertainment system did not work, no movies were accessible on the entire plane for the 12 hour flight. Meals were OK but nothing fantastic to write home about Seat were crowded for eccomomy class, I flew on Emirates on my way to Zurich, for 60% of this flight cost, and would give them a solid 9 or 10 rating our of 10. This was an old plane, 747 Jumbo, Looked tired and was loud inside."

Pros: "Nice attendant, food OK, no delay."
Cons: "Internet costs"

Cons: "The yogurt that was served in business class was out of date by 10 days"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and service not bad. Flight on time."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. One snarky light attendant. Little leg room. Terrible selection of films for all passengers. Have to get United app on ground--need this to be communicated better, on website, before boarding, and onboard."

Cons: "United is no longer customer friendly. Personnel on ground are like robots. They no longer recognize loyal customers as the core. Stewardess and stewards are not courteous. The steward was chewing while serving food. No more what high standards are about. Just to get through with the job. Sad."

Pros: "The purser was amazing. He set a high bar for personal service and caring."
Cons: "Lots of problems with seats around us (and ours) in business class. For a new airplane (787) that was surprising!"

Pros: "Put us up in the hilton."
Cons: "Told us to run across the airport just to get there and they already shut the doors 20 minutes before the scheduled departure. had to miss another day of work..."

Cons: "too much technical problems too long of delays,horrible"

Pros: "Shanghai"
Cons: "Los Angeles"

Pros: "The pilot did a good job. However the cabin crew needs more training. Very rude and unattentive"
Cons: "Rude and incompetent staff on this flight. Plus the overweight/hot/sweaty/snorlax gentleman squeezing me into my window seat for 12hrs was pleasant."

Cons: "It delayed an hour for no reason. It was very late flight and then it delayed one hour which was very inconvenient."

Cons: "The flight was delay for more than an hour and I lost my conecting flight to my country. Terrible costumer service at San Francisco"

Pros: "Crew service,food was excellent, entertain was ok except the audio no music selection to cannot choose individual music cannot forward or playback songs but overall it was an excellent flight especially Shanghai to Sfo trip"

Pros: "United personal quickly found our bag location and made the arraingement to send it to us ASAP."
Cons: "The fact that the only bag we checked in with the airline did not arrived in our plane with out any warning what so ever."

Pros: "The variety of movies and music to listen to. Very comfortable"
Cons: "The quality of food could be better. I always order a Hindu meal not because that's my background but because it has more flavor than a standard meal"

Pros: "The plane was big and they made sure to keep you hydrated."
Cons: "Most of the airline staff were unbelievably rude. They wouldn't let me 91 year old grandfather get up to stretch at ask during the flight. They also told me to stay out of the way and sit down during a medical emergency when I got up because they needed a doctor."

Pros: "Fight was 45 delay but still 10 minutes earlier arrived.that was very good."

Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Comfortable seats on the long flight. The crew did their best to put together a vegetarian breakfast for me."
Cons: "It would be helpful to make meal choice an easy option as you are purchasing your flight, or checking in. More vegetarian options ready for guests on flight."

Pros: "Crew members are nice and attentive."
Cons: "Entertainment: they took away personal screen but then the "new" personal device entertainment option never worked on our roundtrip flight SFO-PVG. The movie froze every 10-15min even on their own big screen. Food was very disappointing even by airline food standard. I was not expecting it to be great food but hey at least provide some options with decent taste please? Comfort: Seats are tight and you will have very minimal space and an awkward position if the person in front of you recline the seat but you don't. Flight is old and seats are uncomfortable. Very little leg room"

Pros: "Snack delicious"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count & cancelled around midnight. AWFUL!"

Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Crew was courteous, though not very helpful. I liked the convenience of a direct flight."
Cons: "First the change fees. To reschedule for a week later would have cost over $800. I only paid $540 for the RT ticket! Second, my seat was broken and would not stay upright. Attendant simply told me to not lean back. Furthermore the audio in my wife's seat did not work; only produced static. Although we had these problems, and the plane was not full, the attendant did not offer a solution - like changing seats. Chinese airlines offer free second bag, and not cost changes. I will probably choose another carrier, even if it cost a bit more, for the extra flexibility and service"
