When our flight was delayed, I mentioned about the reality of possibly missing our next flight. The air hostess asked whether we had booked all the way with AirNZ. When I answered no, but with a Star Alliance member (United Airlines), she didn't seem to care. I wonder at the purpose of the Star Alliance.
Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Cons: "Delays, bumpy ride, narrow seats, no drinks."
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long 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."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 9:15pm and didn’t leave until 12:00 am."
Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I noticed two flight attendants hand hot beverages without looking at you when they pass it to you. Its a bit dangerous, especially if it accidentally spills on you. The Japanese translating flight attendant for flight UA78 on 3/27/19 was gruff and rude in her tone of voice. She needs some help!"
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "How much do United Engineers get paid? They can’t figure out how to make the last row recline? And why was this particular flight not able to let me select a seat?"
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: "Flight attendant was great at least and despite seatbelt light being on whole flight, attendants did pass out those struppelwaffle things which I really do enjoy. Offered complimentary checked baggage to destination for people to use for their carry-on bag."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without a reason given. Plane appeared poorly maintained on inside, with loose interior border panels that would shake and make noise during turbulence."
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Frankly, I didn't like anything. Flying economy, even economy plus for more than 2 hours is not comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system had an annoying buzz in the system."
Pros: "Crew and employees were all great, could not have gone any better."
Cons: "For a three hour flight, entertainment was lacking. The fact that there are ONLY paid options was kind of a slap in the face. Even just providing some radio stations to listen to would have been acceptable as a free option"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Jamestown airport is so small and stress free. And parking is free! Also, the price was much cheaper than flying from Fargo."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "United Airlines for a change did a decent job flying back to LAS unlike our flight from BUF to EWR which got canceled and we had to drive to Newark which was not only disappointing but to witness customer service uncaring even more distressing."
Cons: "We may not choose UA for our family from now on. Quite a bit of confusion even when trying to reach customer service over phone, the hold time is 15 to 20 min?"
Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Cons: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was clean,"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great for this flight"
Cons: "The check-in staff were rude and didn't seem to care about clients. Two different people were rude to me when i checked my baggage upon leaving and returning. I'm not impressed with United."
Pros: "Private screening and movies available."
Cons: "No drink was offered due to descent sooner than planned. Very rough turbulance during descent."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and pilots."
Pros: "Illy coffee & Tapas"
Pros: "The steward was very helpful, when we were stuck on tarmac for thirty minutes, she helped with my next flight showing me how to reach next gate in time to board."
Cons: "Stuffed into seats. The three seats where there is only room for two is absolutely terrible. Average people have shoulders not of a nine year old. The middle seat is ridiculous."
Cons: "Took a long time to get support when gate changed. Could not walk at the time due to skiing accident."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Pros: "Still not in stl"
Cons: "Still not in stl"
Pros: "better seats than in the past"
Cons: "flight attendants fighting with a passenger"
Pros: "Nice new large plane, boarding was quick and the flight was fast"
Pros: "The Captain gave us all free access to watch the last game in the American League playoffs. It was appreciated and unexpected."
Cons: "That my flight to Seattle was delayed 4 hours, and that my return flight was delayed 1.5 hours as well."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Pros: "El sistema de entretenimiento. Optimo"
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen and the food was tasty"
Cons: "My seat...not being able to pick an aisle seat. Also the passenger behind me kept doing something with her seat pocket and I could feel that everytime. Need more padding there. And halfway through the flight the screen quit working."
Cons: "Very late departing Boise. No crew to fly plane. Our plane sat at the gate with no crew to fly it."
Pros: "The Air NZ FLight from Aickland to San Francisco was operated by United Airlines. The seat had excellent leg room. The attendants were very pleasant and available throughout."
Cons: "When I first border the plane there was another passes egg in my allocated seat. The selection of movies available was only okay. their is only a minimal number of toilets for the number of passengers and one of them was out of paper when I went or use it. But they were always clean."
Pros: "All the staff working for United Airlines are very professional and caring. Wifi onboard was fantastic!!"
