Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."

Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."

Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult."

Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"

Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"

Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats."
Cons: "The TV screen interferes with the tray table and could knock off food from the table."

Pros: "As I was in premium economy it was of course amazing, however it was a very packed premium compared to my previous experience so wasn’t as comfortable but still amazing."
Cons: "The selection of movies currently was a bit lacking."

Cons: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."

Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Cons: "Our family nearly missed the trip due to delayed from Melbourne"

Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Pros: "this is Second times to use Air NZ to go to LA. before flight, they found technical problem, but ok .. nothing happen . Ground saffs helped us before on board . hope to use again ."
Cons: "generally nothing"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"

Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."

Pros: "The crew were delightful. Nice cup of tea and a magnificent day for flying."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Meal was excellent"
Cons: "Would have liked a blanket, it was a bit cold."

Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"

Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."
Cons: "Allow passengers to choose if they want a vegetarian meal."

Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."

Cons: "Limit the recline on seats to less of an angle in economy."

Pros: "The service and entertainment provided"

Cons: "Less single use plastic on the flight"

Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."

Cons: "All was fine."

Pros: "On-time, Food, Comfort"

Pros: ":("
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("

Pros: "Fantastic service and overall experience on my first flight on a 787 Dreamliner. Flying QF50 with Qantas from SFO to Melbourne. Slept 8 hours. Will fly down from Sydney to leave via Melbourne in the future, such a good plane."

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"

Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew was great..easy check in for a techno dinosaur like me."
Cons: "Was not impressed with the seat armrests...but it was my first time on the dreamliner...usually fly airbus and sleep like a top !Would also prefer not to have to do customs till I reached Adelaide but thats just a minor quibble."

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Cons: "On"

Pros: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."

Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."

Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."

Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Cons: "Baggage arrived late."

Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "Friendly and easy"

Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"

Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."

Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"

Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"

Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."

Cons: "Seat the family together"

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Cons: "Ran 2 1/2 hours late, poor customer communication"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic. Departed on time, arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Delta One is a bit jaded on this flight."

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We had mechanical problems and had to come back to Atlanta, get off our plane and get on another one"

Pros: "The crew and comfort was ok"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time flight courteous service"

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"

Cons: "-"

Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."

Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."

Pros: "The on time departure. The air hostesses were very attentive. Fast baggage arrival"

Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"

Cons: "No wifi otherwise was great"

Pros: "see SH to GZ prior flight. The same."
Cons: "Same problems. Get KFC or McDonalds to cater. No one enjoys the airline's food which I suspect is prepared on a very small budget. Even a sandwich with a pre-packaged drink would elevate the foodservice."

Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."

Pros: "Excellent sleeper seat in business class. Good food. Good service. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "no suggestions"

Pros: "Nice crew, night food."
Cons: "Old aircraft type, insufficient entertaiment."

Cons: "i had a hard time with their english, but it is better than my Chinese"

Cons: "Wine ran out at the first meal - they only had 5 red and 5 white for the whole plane for a 13 hour flight. No hard alcohol at all so I couldn’t have my G&T to help with sleep. The food was definitely not anything special - the chicken and potatoes was potatoes with sauce and one nibble of chicken."

Pros: "It was a newer model of the plane that I flew out with and it showed. Excellent interior, food was better than the previous flight. Very comfortable and functional for each individual . Crew were fantastic in there dealings with the passengers Overall a very pleasant experience"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment was not as good as I expected. To the extent there wasn’t anything that I wanted to watch as I’d seen the only 2 films that I wanted to watch in my previous long haul leg. TV series were severely lacking in choice as was the latest movies."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "All are fine"
Cons: "Choice of food should be offered"

Pros: "I was expecting less and China Southern delivered a very good experience on their.international flight from Auckland to Guangzhou. I was able to meet up with my son who flew them from SFO and fly on to Cambodia together. Guangzhou airport is stellar, clean, spacious, and transit was comfortable. Will flutter again with confidence."
Cons: "The usual complaint thatevery airline's economy seats are just too small."

Pros: "Very nice comfortable seats in business and wonderful FA. This was a short connection so i was nervous what to do as ive never been to guangzhou before...but they met me at the departure stairs, another person guided me thru all the steps to security and it was great! No line at security so i was thru fast...very impressive airport and china southern"
Cons: "No vip bus for businessclass, we waited a long time, poor organization. Flight delaye of 30 minutes. Then nine of my luggage arrived in manila!! Very bad! The baggage agent couldnt tell even where the bags were at...very poor organization. Finally got the bags de,ivered the next day but no compensation...im unimoressed with this asoect of china southern..poorly done"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late on departure"

Cons: "Bags lost."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "2h delay for unknown reason, missed connection"

Pros: "Service and food were fine. Baggage allowance was generous."
Cons: "There was very little seat space... seemed narrower than usual and knees touched seat in front all the time unless I got them in one particular position, then it was just a very light touch. I don't recall being on a less comfortable flight. It's a shame that it was an 11 hour flight. The next flight was far better although only 7 hours. However, after the first flight I really appreciated the extra space so very much!!"

Pros: "Loved the good space in seating. Really appreciated it. Mostly crew were friendly and eager to be helpful. The sudoku was the only entertainment I really wanted to use on this flight but it just refused to load. Didn't really matter as I had a good book with me and really enjoyed that."
Cons: "One stewardess seemed reluctant to help me with cabin baggage. No smiles. Didn't much like the 3 hour delay, especially as my waiting time was already 5 hours, however, I'm sure your were doing all you could to get us safely to our destination as quickly as possible. These things happen."

Pros: "Busines class seats (pods)."

Pros: "Service was excellent !"

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "My Baggage came on the next flight and not on the one i boarded which caused a lot of problems"

Pros: "Boarding procedure, flight attendants were helpful"

Pros: "I like it allow an adult passenger with 2 free checked baggages,each can be 23kg max."
Cons: "The Online service is only set for Chinese who is living in China. You can not do the Seat Reservation without Chines mobile phone. You can not do any pre check-in because you are holding an Australia Passport."

Pros: "Great smooth flight"

Pros: "Cabin crew support for food."
Cons: "Availability of limited Bollywood movies. Expecting English subtitles for Hollywood movies"

Pros: "window control"
Cons: "I travel to see the places I go, not to watch movies instead. I found the auto-darkening of the window infuriating as I couldnt look out to watch the world I travel to see. Pretty much makes flying a waste of time if you are forced to look at movies you dont really want to watch because the real reason you bought the ticket is denied you without warning it will happen prior to investing in the ticket for the route. Button at seat worked for a while to sneak a peak at the real world but then the system seemed to take over and tell me to conform with the demand I not look."

Pros: "entertainment system"
Cons: "Didnt work"

Cons: "Guangzhou airport transfer was uncomfortable expensive and won’t be traveling via this airport again"

Pros: "Fligths were on time"
Cons: "The entertainment system didint work on my seat, the crew on the fligth from China to Bangkok was not friendly, most of they were not smiling."

Cons: "Our flight fr Mnl to China was delayed and missed out flight going to SFO. Have to stay ivernight didn’t get to the hotel untill 1am and flight is 10 am and the flight have a stop at a different China city and have to change plane again. Travel was so long and inconvenient."

Pros: ""Nothing". I really mean it Nothing."
Cons: "I was flying to Delhi & it was an emergency situation for me bcz i lost my Dad & i was flying to perform the cremation of my Dad. And thing this was informed to the China Southern officials so that they could arrange something for me. I requested them to put me into another flight for which i was ready to pay the whole amount but no one listen to my request & i had to wait so long. I was amazed to see that no one was keen to understand my problem at both he airports i.e. Auckland Airport & Ganzhaou Airport. Apart from this the behavior of your officials was so rude & arrogant it made me feel as if i was a slave or some kind of culprit. Due to the ignorance & laid back attitude on your part i couldn't reach my destination on my time. Seriously it took me "24 hrs Extra" to reach my destination & as a result of which i couldn't perform the cremation. I was pissed off by the service; complete ignorance by the staff/officials of ur airlines. I wasn't expecting this kind of treatment from a reputed company like you. I request you guys to look into this matter seriously and try to take some corrective measures so that this thing won't happen in future with someone else."

Pros: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days."
Cons: "We took China Southern from Sydney to Guangzhou few weeks ago , the crew was rude, very bad services, but when we come back from Guangzhou to Sydney yesterday, same airline, Crew was excellent. can't understand why so much different in two different days. the services need to be consistent ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ground staff did not want to help me and refused to put me on this flight because they reffered to no transit visa, although I was legally allowed to get on the flight as I have just found out, but it is gone already. As a result all my consecutive flight were cancelled as no show. I tried to reach the airline help line, however due to Chinese New Year they don't work, so there was no way to solve this problem I am VERY dissapointed. Will take this case to the court if my money not refunded"

Pros: "Smaller plane, but more personal space."
Cons: "No entertainment available, but to be expected on shorter flights."

Pros: "Both flights the Food was lukewarm"

Pros: "After traveling on the large US carriers China Southern is a breath of fresh air. Nothing is too much trouble for the cabin staff who were absolutely fantastic. The price was super competitive. Will always try and travel with them on trips to Asia."

Cons: "I paid the seating selection and seat was assigned. The southern airlines changed my seat, didn’t fulfi my requirements. Didn’t do anything to comfort me."

Pros: "Cabin crew very courtious and professional."
Cons: "Sitting on the Business class seats is like sitting a lump of rocks."

Pros: "Service and aircraft fleet."
Cons: "Most flights delayed for no good reason. Miss connections on both legs of our round trip to India"

Pros: "Meals and professional cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats and movies are due for an update."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "No toiletry bag"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Two flights now that I had a touchscreen that didn't work. Flight was fine but not exceptional. The main frustrations were from inconsiderate passengers - no doubt the ones who take advantage of lower airfares."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, solid"
Cons: "Flight got rerouted to Chicago because of snow. Airline abandoned us for almost 10 hours. No one knew where to go, what to do. That part was horrible after a 15 hour flight."

Pros: "Seats were ok. Downloaded media for each seat was diverse and entertaining. Food was alright."
Cons: "Crew was pretty curt and not polite. They also 'didn't have time' to load my bag onto the plane, along with ~15 other people. I had to wait two days for it to arrive. 'No time' to load bags is kind of an odd and slightly unacceptable reason to not load baggage onto a plane. Airlines close check-in for flights 30 mins before departure time to ensure that all bags make it onto the plane. I was 3 hours early. Don't know why they 'didn't have time'. They also broke my friend's bag."

Cons: "Me and many customers on CZ 371 lost our baggages during the transit in Guangzhou. Still no update on lost and found yet."

Cons: "It was a horrible flight for me will never travel again with you guys"

Pros: "Ontime departure"
Cons: "Nothing special. Entertainment system was intermittently working requiring reveal reboot. Food just average or perhaps slightly below. Customer service was fair but not to the caliber of other Asian airlines (e.g., Cathay Pacific)"

Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."

Pros: "Everything on time amd friendly helpful staff. The food was not bad and the sandwiches and drinks in between were good and plentiful. As well there was alot of entertainment options. My bag didn't make it on my flight, but this was due to a tight connection and it arrived on the next flight."
Cons: "Immigration at Guangzhou airport was too time consuming for a 24 hour layover. The airline was convienent and cheap- but if it loses the convienence by delaying passangers with cumbersome visa procedures, I at least will transit through another country and not use China Southern."

Pros: "Food was okay compared to Melb-Guangzhou journey that was excellent."
Cons: "Not much leg room (structural bits took up space). Entertainment touchscreen did not work. Not many snacks offered. Food was served more than an hour after a 12:20am take off. No toiletries."

Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"

Pros: "Read above"

Pros: "Nothing"
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 arrives early."
Cons: "Very long walk to next gate. No golf carts wanted to bring US. Wife is pregnant"

Pros: "Request for supply of earplugs was kindly met. Cabin crew were attentive and friendly. Food was some of the best I have ever eaten in Economy."
Cons: "Check-in staff at EWR were abrupt to the point of rudeness. Did not feel valued as a customer."

Pros: "Flight was nice and empty"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"

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."
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"

Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."

Cons: "To whom it may concern I had booked flight from Casablanca to Chicago via Frankfurt , on May 6th , by Lufthansa, two hours before the flight , at the counter in CMN , they notified me , that the flight , is over booked , and I can’t catch this flight , and they offered me different difficult options, , till the flight boarded , they offered me one of the most inconvenient flights , and reward me some amount , in this case : I missed my flight which accordingly , lose my appointment , and lose my business. I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me ."

Pros: "The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing."
Cons: "The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner."

Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight"

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."

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

Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"

Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"

Pros: "bad movie choices"

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."

Pros: "Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful."
Cons: "One nice flight attendant out of the five I interacted with. I'm flying United less and less because the service just sucks."

Pros: "The flight attendants were polite, helpful and super patient with our kids."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Improve the food and be ahead of the best"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!"

Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."

Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."

Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"

Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."

Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"

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: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."

Pros: "The movies were good - glad it was free and nice selection"
Cons: "US Pre-clearance in Dublin was ridiculous. I don't know what else to say about it. They were even holding us going down the escalator to the actual screening part. It was just one crazy queue to another. Will definitely make me think about ever going through Dublin again."

Pros: "Both flight were delayed and I had to reschedule my flights and miss my arrangements."
Cons: "It looks like that there is no respect for Time ."

Pros: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."

Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"

Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process; no lingering trying to sit."
Cons: "We waited for a while to depart; I believe that's customary dealy for Charlotte Douglas now, so not a sole reflection of United."

Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"

Pros: "Appreciated the boarding style, more organized crowds"
Cons: "Seats are getting too small, not enough room for elbows"

Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."

Cons: "When sitting straight up in the seat, my knees hit the seat in front of me. United seems to be making the space between each seat terribly close."
