Pros: "There was no distance between seats with COVID 19 Craft was so crowded and full on kids under 5 years which Made it super noisy. Even with earbuds there was no peace."

Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Cons: "Nothing to complain, simply perfect."
Pros: "Food is amazing, planes are good."
Cons: "The boarding crew at the gate did not say anything while weighing the carry on bag. I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."
Pros: "The crew was really good, even the food was nice"
Cons: "I think the economy class seating could be better & even the ticket prices could be reduced a bit"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable , the leg space was too small ."
Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been kept more strict and organized."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."
Pros: "The size of seats , the food and the service"
Cons: "The entertainment system had few glitches but workable ( flickering banners of the channel or sound, volume"
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: "I love rraveling eith with Emirates. The seats are comfortable. They have good entertainment system eith a variety of choices. The attendants are polite and respectful and they do an amazing job. The food is good as well."
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."
Cons: "Breakfast could have been a bit better"
Pros: "Food was good when we got it."
Cons: "Flight crew was horrible. They rarely picked up Trash and I had my call button on for 2 hrs before someone actually responded just for something to drink. They also continually bumped into everyone walking down the aisle as well as hit people with the food carts. They definitely need a lot more training. Not happy at all."
Pros: "Airbus from Melbourne to Dubai is very comfortable for a long haul flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Service from crew slow and when you ask for something they sometimes forget to bring it"
Cons: "I haven't got onto the flight you stupid twerps."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."
Pros: "Great service and airplane!!!"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable when you lie down on flat position, narrow space, and attendant woke me up for breakfast despite tellingher not to do that at begginig of the trip"

Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "Highly recommend Emirates"
Pros: "Good food and little amenities that are a nice touch during a long international flight (fresh fruit, hand towels, etc.). Good entertainment selection and nice aircraft with USB ports/easily accessible charging outlets."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed. Crew did very little to manage expectations or let us know why we were so delayed - on top of that, there was no special treatment for being delayed over 2 hours. Crew was polite, but not overly friendly or helpful."
Pros: "Trip was shorter by at least one hour than projected."
Cons: "Very dissapointed with return flight. It was like a different airline experience than first leg of trip to Athens"
Cons: "Very far gate, long bus ride to reach plane"

Cons: "I Was sick had a flu ! I asked for tea and I was waiting for about an hour :("
Cons: "we were delayed by 3 hours and missed our next flight to seattle, emirates did nothing to help us catch our next flight, even though it sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we were denied entry to the gate."
Pros: "Except the seats satisfied overall."
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Not enough Veg food even though requested well in advance."
Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."
Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "Great entertainment choice on board. Free, cheap in-flight Wi-Fi."
Cons: "No free seat selection available anymore until checkin."
Pros: "Flight was clean that's pretty much it."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
Pros: "great plane and service, and so many movies"
Cons: "the passenger next to me had no sense of personal space or boundary, head on my shoulder while sleeping, foot in front of my chair, etc. and no english; gave the flight attendants a hard time too"
Pros: "Lots of food. Ok about giving out water between meal service"
Cons: "Aisles were very tight so hard to pass people when leaving/queuing for toilets."
Pros: "This is the 4th times I use Emirates and they maintain their standards. The entertainment is very good, a lot of new movies and tv shows, in many languages. The quality of the plane is still amazing, I love Airbus even in economy class and I am 6'2 tall. So enough space for my legs, the plane seemed to be pretty new. Love it. No problem during the boarding. Staff very efficient at that time The same during the flight. they were there to provide us a high standards services. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "The food portion were pretty small BUT there were some leftover that the crew agree to give if you asked for. So at the end not too bad."
Pros: "The movie selection is always good."
Cons: "The crew on this flight were rude which came as a shock to myself as I usually have a great experience flying with Emirates. I wish that was the case this time."
Pros: "The food was great and so was the service."
Cons: "The ride was a bit bumpy at times. I wish there is a foot rest in front for Economy class, just like Singapore Airline ."
Pros: "The whole Experience was Amazing. From Comfortable Seat, Great Flight Crew, Tastey Food"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and allowed me to change my seat to be near the door as I had a connecting flight fairly soon after arriving in Manila. This flight was very comfortable and excellent."
Cons: "There was no movie but that is Ok. I just read"
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Pros: "Service was efficient and responsive ."
Cons: "Food was good"
Pros: "Quite comfortable, met my expectations and I slept well. On board team were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Lounge in TPE is awful! Over crowded, noisy and a mess. I wouldn’t fly CI again just from the lounge experience."
Cons: "No seat number on the ticket. Wrong gate number. Food has hairs in it. I have back pain problem...was asking for the outside seating so I can stand up one in a while but got Negative answer for both ways....don’t think to book with you guys and China Airlines again.....very painful experience."
Pros: "Cabin fitout is cozy and comfortable. Great service onboard and free WiFi for Premium customers"
Cons: "Taoyuan airport facilities"
Pros: "Though the boarding process for this flight had the passengers take a shuttle to board the plane, I actually preferred this, because it seemed that the process was more efficient. The crew was quick to get everyone settled and our flight departed within just a couple of minutes from the original departure time. Seemed as though it was way faster than the normal gate departures of most flights I've been on."
Pros: "Food is surprisingly not bad, with entertainment is a plus."
Cons: "luggages delayed for nearly one hr. Many ppl waiting for luggage at the luggage bell"
Pros: "I was surprised that they provided meal for less than 1.5 hour flight. The fare was very affordable for only a few extra hours waiting in Taipei. Very happy with their service. I will definitely use China Airlines again."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "good it was not a long flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit negligent. They passed me when serving the food just because the aisle seat passenger next to me was served his special meal earlier, so they did not notice that the passenger at the window seat (which was me) had no tray in front of him when running the regular meal service. Isn't this sloppy !? Problem is that once they passed you, it's hard to get their attention, as they are always in a hurry, and not looking over the cabin just to check if someone needs something or wants to call on them for any reason, and there are no attendant calling buttons available. So you have to wait until they come by your seat again. Finally I got my meal with apologies 15 minutes later, but the experience was already ruined and the negative impression built.. Also, when departing from Taipei, the boarding process was a bit disorganized, compared with the one we had in Vancouver. As for as the entertainment, the LCD monitor at my seat was pretty worn out, with very poor contrast, making it difficult to watch a movie or read information. Same airline with two opposing experiences: Vancouver-to-Taipei very good, Taipei-to-Manila: poor."
Cons: "there was not much information at the airport, the flight did not appear on the screen. but when I asked, I get the information."
Pros: "Comfortable and relaxing!"
Pros: "Transit was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "I like the boarding styles and the crew"
Cons: "I didn't like that we had to wait for one guy cause he was late. I also didn't like the little room we have to streach."
Pros: "Recent movies were available. Enjoyed the personal screen with games and options to keep entertained."
Cons: "Originally, I had 2 flights scheduled from Myanmar to SF. One connecting flight from Yangon to Taipei, then from Taipei to San Francisco with a 7 hour lay over in between. Not too bad. 3 weeks before my vacation to Myanmar, China airlines moved my return connecting flight from Yangon to Taipei a day early, which meant I would need to cancel hotel reservations in Yangon and would be stranded in Taipei overnight. I called China Airlines and the only option was to move my 2nd flight a day early. No apologies or reason why my connecting flight was changed a day earlier."
Pros: "I had a seat in Premium Economy and the seats were very comfortable. The chair had the option to extend into a foot rest and had wider arm space than standard economy seats do."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed and hectic (seemed disorganized). The flight was quite crowded/full so this was likely a factor. Also, I was served a dish with ham (which I don't eat) even after asking for the contents & there being no mentioning of ham being in the dish. The crew was very apologetic and kind enough to offer any other dish option they had available."
Pros: "Excellent condition of Aircraft"
Cons: "fter serving a meal, it was 7 hours later we received any beverages. the cabin air was very dehydrating and everyone started coughing because we had been given no water. this is how people get sick and spread diseases. the plane definitely needed to consider hydration. and when they finally served us the meal, they didnt offer water rather coffee or tea and i had to ask for water and juice. the cabin temperature also fluctuated from hot to cold."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was kept really cold and entertainment system didnt work very well."
Pros: "Everything is good & went fine!"
Pros: "It was very organized ."
Cons: "Nothing ."
Pros: "First of all, china airlines cancelled my original flight and put me in one 6 hours earlier, I had to change around and pay for changes to my other flights to make it work. Then 3 days before I depart they cancel another flight and don't even offer me one on the same day, they didn't have any. They put me on a flight 17 hours earlier that threw my schedule so much I had to hasltle with them, book anoth r airline and lose another few hundred dollars. To say china airlines is awful and unreliable is an understatement. it is the second time this has happened to me, the appearance of cheaper fairs is never worth the trouble u will have with china airlines or any of its affiliates such and china eastern. Thy have old planes, funny rules about phone use and just awful customer service and disregard for people plans and changes that they make. Never book China airlines. You will regret it I promise you."

You will regret it I promise you."
Pros: "They operate the Airbus A350, a nice very modern plane on this route"
Cons: "Boarding left on time, but there were staff members frustrated and yelling at passengers to get on the plane. Normally I am not a picky eater, but I could not eat the food on the flight. It tasted like dog food"
Cons: "The seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines his chair, there is no room to move around at all. It would be helpful to announce that passengers should recline their seats only during sleep time."
Cons: "2 hours late because of mechanical issues. They offered food with no water or juice - later only coffee or tea on a 3 and a half hour flight. Staff was not the friendliest - asked for water twice, was told just a moment but was never brought any. How do you not give people water on flight over 3 hours? I would have even paid for it. I have a history of heart failure and was worried because my ankles were swelling and my legs were tingling. We missed our bus because of the delay, The airline staff in taiwan took all of our travel info and said they would help us book other transport to get where we were going in Cambodia. When we got to Cambodia the check-in desk was closed so info told us to go to the china airlines office - we waited almost an hour and still no one showed up (middle of the afternoon). Had to pay 6x the price to get to Sihanoukville plus we weren't able to get a refund on the bus tickets. Crying, screaming kids in front of us kept standing up on the seats so no one behind them could see the TV - staff said nothing. Terrible experience."
Pros: "The staff was amazing and the movie options were extensive"
Cons: "We departed much later than anticipated and I missed my connecting flight as a result - had to spend an extra 10 hours at LAX until next flight available. The food was terrible, I only ate the fruit!"
Pros: "The flight crew were extremely friendly and nice."
Cons: "I had a pleasant ride. So I enjoyed my trip"
Pros: "For economy class the seats were not cramped and had some space to them."
Cons: "Lack of selection for food."
Pros: "My seat was upgraded the first class so I received the first class service. It was excellent service and the flight was comfortable. Thank you for the great service."
Pros: "The flight was fast. Seating super tight. Food was mediocre. But because flight was fast, didn't have to suffer tight economy seating for more than 11 hours."
Pros: "I've been taking CI to Taiwan since I was a little kid. My flight to Seoul via Taipei was a bit uncomfortable bc the flight was fully packed and even though I had an aisle seat, the person sitting in the middle was hogging up all my space . Once I landed in Taipei and went on next flight to my destination at Seoul, that flight was much more comfortable and less people. On my return direct flight from Taipei to JFK seats were comfy and service is always attentive. I enjoy taking china airlines and can always rely on their service and clean planes"
Cons: "The new interior decoration seems outdated and gives a weird vibe."
Pros: "Clean plane."
Cons: "The dinner upset my stomach, leading me to get sick once I got home."
Pros: "Quiet cabin - no crying babies or toddlers"
Cons: "Food was terrible; will choose different airline in future for long haul trips"
Pros: "Entertainment - good choices of movies and newer LCDs."
Cons: "Compared to Delta where they proactively offer unli cocktails and drinks to business class and comfort, I've never had one offer in my return trip. Had a technical malfunction twice which caused me to miss my 7am connecting flight by 2 mins. The next plane didn't even bother to wear for 2 mins even if they caused the delay. They gave a 250NT lunch voucher and asked to what til the next flight in the afternoon. That was the longest flight I experienced coming from New York."
Pros: "The crew didn't nag that I can't watch a movie on my mobile, even during take off and landing. That's highly appreciated. I also could tallies my GoPro during the entire flight, no negative comments from the crew, unlike many other regional carriers here."
Cons: "The IFE screens are very small and dated. There are big IFE boxes under the seats limiting your feet real estate. Food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Since there is no Premium Economy class on this route, I was upgraded to business. Good, but not great experience."
Cons: "No complaints, except that the business lounge at TPE, after the very long ordeal of going through security, is out of the way. Why the lights there would be so dim is a mystery to me, but the lounge is great."
Pros: "Plane was clean and food was okay. Quiet flight and staff was helpful."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and there were few if any announcements. The boarding area is confusing and not having clear signage made it difficult."
Pros: "I wish to commend a particular flight attendant on my CI7 flight on August 10 from LAX to Taipei. A young lady who I believe is called Jashe was especially helpful and attentive to me, and served me with very kindly. I believe she a strong asset to your organization, and wish to compliment her. Allen Wittenborn Seat 60C"
Cons: "Seats were very narrow, even for economy class. The food on this flight was mediocre. I don't expect much in this class, but I did not find the meals very tasty."
Pros: "the one they call pork noodles was excellent lavatory at the back was clean even at the end of 12 hour flight"
Cons: "assigned seats 71 D & E had my head shaking when turbulence hit the plane. poor leg room as expected. i will continue to complain about this however fruitless, helpless & frustrating it is"
Pros: "I liked that I eventually arrived to my destination and was able to go home."
Cons: "Was not notified that my flight was cancelled. Remained on hold for over 2 hours as I had to beg and plead with China Airlines to find and place me on another flight that was not days after my original arrival date. Did not get any form of an apology or upgrade for the stress and inconvenience caused by the last minute cancellation. Taipei to LAX: had to wait in line to check in for 1.5 hours, as there were only 3 China Airline people working the check in desks, I have posted a video on instagram of the massive line that I stood in. https://instagram.com/p/BHobbM0A6mP/"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Food was good."
Cons: "They make you stay in China overnight EVERY flight layover......even by saying the weather is bad......others on my cancelled flight told me they'd waited 2 days for a flight but keep being sent back to a hotel"
Pros: "747. Older aircraft, not much to make the passenger smile here. Flight was short!"
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Not done by zones. Everything is willy-nilly at boarding in Taiwan. First to board were families with small children (even before first class). Fine, except: There were several families with small children lined up at first. The gate agent was about to board them, then she stopped and went out into the gate's seating area and started grabbing families with teenagers (only) to board with the families with small children. Seriously, she went and got several families that had teens (no kids in the fam under age 10) only, and lined them up behind the fams with smaller kids. What an interesting look on the faces of the first-class passengers waiting in a separate line to board. After boarding the new category of "All Families", first class boarded. Then the masses. Once again, zones were not utilized by gate agents, and we all boarded at the same time, ignoring the zones (front/middle/rear). Once in my seat I could not find a charging outlet, nor a USB outlet. And wifi? I asked the F/A. Her response: "We don't have. Sorry. Its 1 hour 50 minute flight. You are OK." Really! No, sweet woman, YOU will be OK, working. I will have to waste 2 hours not getting something productive done. Entertainment unit on seatback: Waste of time. Even if it worked, the sound requires the old twin-male plugin jack on the armrest. Nobody has one of those in his pocket, and the F/A's never passed any out. I can hear it now, had I asked for one: "1 hour and 50 minute flight. You are OK.""
Pros: "Same. Movies, staff, food."
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "Fast, easy, got decent seats and didn’t have to sit next to anyone"
Cons: "No social distancing AT ALL. Flight was packed"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "The choice of new movies!"
Cons: "On my side crew lady was almost rude, for sure not friendly nor smiling. A lot of space for improvement there."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I would have like to leave on time."
Cons: "Inflight Wifi was spotty"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. I am an elite flier and was put in an n uncomfortable middle seat with no choice."
Cons: "Seat should with choice."
Cons: "Boarding procedure could have been a bit more organized as we had trouble hearing what seats were boarding."
Pros: "The plane was super comfortable"
Cons: "Long check-in lines in Denver - there were two sky caps outside who had no line which allowed me to reach my gate in time. Otherwise I may have missed my flight"
Cons: "Try to be on time!"
Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "K&yak was awful. Tossed me to a low end third party provider once booked. Never go through them again."
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "Short and great"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Pros: "Crew onboard was nice and helpful"
Cons: "No power outlets at my seat meant that my purchase of internet was pointless after my computer died and I couldn’t recharge it. My bag was checked despite being a priority Gold customer even though I pleaded with them to let me take my bag on board. When I got to my seat, there was plenty of room"
Pros: "The free entertainment was great! Left on time and arrive time. No lost bags and no incidents."
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints. We flew basic economy so there were no frills and sat in row 26. The flight was safe and"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No snacks because of short trip, so can’t rate properly."
Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."
Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"
Pros: "The rest was as usual"
Cons: "My seat was broken and would not recline, i mentioned it to the stewardness and even though there were other empty seats they did not offer to move me."
Pros: "The aircraft, the entertaining"
Cons: "Food service"
Cons: "The landing in Charlotte."
Cons: "The changed of flight from.BA To American airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment options are always a plus for long flights."
Cons: "On the flight to Japan, I was fortunate to not have anyone sit next to me, so I was comfortable. Can't say the same for the way back. I'm fairly petite, 5'2, small frame, and even I felt cramped in the seats. I can't imagine how it feels for bigger folks."
Cons: "The plane was a little too hot."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nisy airplane and hard seats."
Pros: "Great food, menu choice, flatbed, entertainment. Fast track security"
Cons: "Why do AA have to take away the noise cancelling headphones an hour before landing and disturb a sleeping passenger. Collect them when passengers have disembarked. A full fare biz class fare passenger is NOT going to take thee used headphones"
Pros: "Entertainment on the newer AA planes is great. Meals are sparse but tasty (chicken wrap)"
Cons: "Middle seat always stinks - flight attendants on AA always seem like they hate their jobs"
Cons: "American flight attendant service"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Never made it to San Juan to catch my cruise. To top things off I was a ship for two days without my luggage and underwears. Never again!!! Thank you JetBlue!!!"
Pros: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Pros: "It's convenient that was next to a laboratory."
Cons: "It's convenient that my seat by a laboratory but since the way to laboratory is narrow the crews kept bumping my seat by the catering carts that kept woke me up while resting..."
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
Cons: "they were keeping delay, delay, and delay when I was on the aircraft. My flight was from BOS to PHL on June 13,2017 was delayed and cancel then they pushed me back. They pushed my flight back on the next morning and without any apologize or responsibilities for me and I have been sleeping in the AIRPORT all night! never go to this airline again! bad and worst airlines ever!!!"
Pros: "You are pushed into 4 square inches. But the boarding and checkin process was much much better then the ny experience."
Cons: "Food and comfort"
Pros: "It was nice that I had a seat empty next to me, allowing for extra room. Flight was a little early in landing in Dallas, allowing for extra time for a short layover to find my terminal and gate for my next flight."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Everything was great to me"
Cons: "The flight was packed"
Pros: "God service at the flight ."
Cons: "Canceled my first flight of American airlines, I had to wait 11 more hours, I had no compensation and nobody even apologized to me."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "One of the worst flights ever. The plane was jammed. My seat was in row 20, directly across from the lavatory. The light was one every time they opened or closed the door. I had people standing right next to me with their rear ends in my face. The plane would be fine for a short trip with that many people and such small uncomfortable seats (and I am a little person 5'1"). But to put that many people on a "cattle car" for a 6 hour flight... no bueno. Also, I could not check in online to get seats and I wasn't able to upgrade. My husband was stuck 13 rows behind me. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean, that the staff consisted of somewhat normal, more mature people, and that water and carry-ons are free."
Cons: "I felt that having to pay $50 extra for a seat when I checked in was pretty deceptive and unethical. I think most people would agree that when they purchase a boarding pass, it is assumed that it includes a seat. Having to pay extra for a seat was something I did not plan for and it was out of my budget, but I had no choice, because I had to get home somehow! I'll be going without groceries this week due to this unplanned expense."
Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Had to pay for bags No snacks No entertainment system"
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Check-in was slow but due to all the covid protocals
Pros: "It was meh...."
Cons: "I got no notification that the flight was going to be 1 hour earlier"
Pros: "Used miles to upgrade to Premium Plus. Excellent seat and food!"
Cons: "Wifi only worked for a half hour, we paid extra to bring carry on bag, and the're was no space in the plane, had to send it in the cargo."
Pros: "The UI to watch videos on the plane is really good. They have good quality screens, so I watched movies for all the 12 hours of lfight I had."
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it was miserable!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Pros: "Service and punctuality"
Cons: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Cons: "Need more legroom and luggage space. Long flight is painful"
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "Da food, seat"
Cons: "Da Music"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Then for 2 of the 3 meals they missed even serving some rows entrees."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, food was average."
Cons: "The flight being cancelled. Wifi doesn't even come close to working. No personal entertainment. Communication was poor for the rescheduling of flight that led me to miss the next flight"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "The entertainment worked for like most of the time (surprisingly) and I got an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "What can you expect from united... the crew members were terrible absolutely unprofessional and unwilling to help. We were delayed for 3 hours in Taipei due to an issue with the plane that they were trying to fix. During this time many people were trying to change flights as they had connections in SFO. When they asked the hostesses for help, they either got rude unhelpful responses or got completely ignored. United really needs to train their flight attendants better."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "All the food choices had some sort of animal product – eggs, dairy or meat"
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "The stewardess miss polanxo was great"
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
