Cons: "More space on the flight"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Pros: "Was able to get an Economy Plus seat, which is nice - great legroom for an almost 6' tall person and power plug is very handy. Entertainment & screens on the 787 is very good. Regular distributions of water was very helpful since I wasn't able to fill up my bottle before getting on the flight."
Cons: "Not a great amount of food available, and one of the larger cabin crew members kept brushing my arm as she walked past, which didn't help me get any sleep."

Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"
Pros: "We were early. We sat together"
Cons: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"

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"

Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t free"
Pros: "Fast n easy flight"

Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."

Pros: "Water and snacks offered when flight was delayed over an hour! Crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour."

Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"
Pros: "The bathroom sign that shows if it is busy without going there"
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."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Pros: "We had the most wonderful, friendly crew ever! They came around with good and drink many, many times! Such a pleasant and enjoyable experience!"
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Cons: "they changed our flight without notifying us! they messed up our seats and asked my mother to deplane! when we were flying with twin babies! they also gave us grief about gate checking something on the trip home that we had no problems with on the way there. honestly i will never fly united again."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."

Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"

Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence due to weather"
Pros: "Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful."

Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."

Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Cons: "Hotel provided was ok but I expected more . The wait to get to the hotel was way too long and people at airport were not helpful. There was no clear instructions on where to wait, who we were to deal with . The directions were misleading."
Cons: "delay of about 1 hour, we almost missed our international flight from beigin"
Pros: "Crew is wonderful .they do everything in business class to make you feel comfortable"
Cons: "I will never fly China Eastern again. EVER !! I need to add an extra day or two onto our flight. We purchased business class flights so they are not cheap. In order for us to make a change they want $1700 each person, a total of $3400 to take the same flight two days later. The fee is the highest I have ever hear for the same flight class .. I will never ever use China Eastern again, they are taking advantage..I could actually buy a return ticket on another airline for cheaper than they want for a flight change."
Pros: "הצוות היה מאוד נחמד. האוכל היה בינוני וכך גם איכות הסרטים."
Cons: "אינטרנט אלחוטי חינם. לעדכן באופן ברור שהצ׳ק נסגר מוקדם (כשעה ומשהו לפני המראה) עקב המרחק הגדול בשדה. כמעט פספסתי את הטיסה."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Check in agents could have been more professional"
Pros: "I hated the airline!"
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff was not nice at all. Worst airline."
Pros: "My screen on the first leg didn’t work too well. It would turn on and off on its own, but since it was an overnight flight and I was tired, I slept most of the way so didn’t complain. Just had to dim the screen for the times it would turn on automatically while I was trying to sleep. 2nd leg had"
Cons: "I understand it is a Chinese airline, but I wish there was more English spoken, or the flight attendants not assume everyone who is Asian understands Chinese, especially since the flights are international."
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Food very unappetising. Poor movie selection"
Pros: "Loads of space. Super crew,"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect."
Pros: "It was cheap but I would not do it again"
Cons: "I made friends with another passenger who when texting his number introduced himself as ‘XYZ, flight from hell’. That pretty much sums it up but here’s a laundry list of issues I faced on the trip 1. They landed us in a different airport in China and did not inform us on how to get to the other airport (PVG). After several failed attempts of catching a taxi that accepts Visa or US dollars, we finally got a bus that ferried us 2. They also did not automatically transfer the luggage, so I had to carry my two checked in bags to the other one and then stand in a 45 min queue to get them checked in again 3. Unhelpful ground staff 4. Delayed second flight. After a shitty eight hour long layover, we got another 2 5. Horrible food 6. No ear plugs are available in the plane 7. Not a single apology from the crew about the delay Also, anyone who doesn’t speak mandarin needs to understand that the crew in China is not well equipped to understand and help you, so be prepared to have the translation struggle"

Cons: "some of the crew didn't understand English very well, not much movie choice on board"

Cons: "Food is meh"

Pros: "There is absolutely nothing I can say that I liked about China Eastern flight. See comments below."
Cons: "Service was horrible. Flight got delayed by 10 hours and staff expected us to wait at the gate till the next flight."
Cons: "This was terrible.. Coming home, they would not let me on the plane from Bangkok to San Francisco.. No reason given.. Was there in plenty of time, the agent was a jerk and would not let me board.. I had to buy another ticket.. On Philippine Airlines. I will never book with you again unless you all make it up to me.. This was terrible ."

Pros: "the crew were fantastic thank you"
Pros: "Is fine"
Cons: "There was a long wait to transit or transfer but besides that everything was great"
Pros: "Flew business class on their 777's to and from LAX/Shanghai. Unbeatable service at LAX where the gate agent escorted us through security onto the plane and on the ground in Shanghai and Beijing where ground personnel were on hand to help you make your connections. Great service in both economy and business class. (Domestic economy-full hot meal service with choice of entree!!) China Eastern will be my choice for travel to China."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. All announcements were made in both Mandarin and English, which I appreciated a lot. Wifi was relatively good at the Kunming airport."

Pros: "Delay ex Manila was said to be 3 hours but was shortened. Looking at bright side."
Cons: "The reception in Shanghai did not at first permit me to connect on my flight to Rome. If I missed that I have a flight on Monday 11am to Geneva that I would miss. My shortened layover in Shanghai due to Manila delay was still 45 minutes but Inwas being asked to transfer and get another flight through the transfer desk. Luckily After a few minutes in line at the transfer desk, was allowed back on my original flight. However and unfortunately, it was due to another 2 hour delay. arrived Rome 815++ pm ISO 6pm."
Pros: "I do not think the check in staff could have been any more useless, they wanted us to collect our luggage at every transfer, the plane was cramped, obviously made for people a lot shorter than my 6 ft, majority of the food was not edible for western people. I will not be using them again."

Cons: "The snacks and food offered are terrible. Cabins are dry and uncomfortable (not pressurized enough)."
Pros: "Professional and quick boarding"
Pros: "Just about everything"
Cons: "I had lower expectations. That's probably I did not dislike anything. I'd easily benchmark China Eastern to Cathay Pacific. Very happy. Will use China Eastern again. For sure"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The boarding process is quite efficient."
Cons: "My seat had a hole in it and a plastic part of the mechanics was protruding out sticking me in the leg the entire time. The food was not good. Wish they would start letting you use your cell phone in "airplane mode" on the flight."
