Flight was delayed at IAD Washington. Passengers were anxious as there was delay announcing about it.
Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."
Pros: "Amazing crew, seats were super confortable. Overall top experience !"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They paid attention to every detail and anticipated requests. Always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The service and the aircraft with QSuites were superb."
Pros: "Crew was very active, attentive and bice, seats are wide and comfortable, food is tasty and delicious! Great experiencce!"
Cons: "If all people would remain upright, that is actually saves more space for legs then horizontal position ;)"
Cons: "better food"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "The leg space the reclining chair the personal tv the head rest The food"
Pros: "All the crew"
Cons: "The airline services"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"
Pros: "Every aspect of flight was wonderful, though I’m sure that fly"
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable and the staff are friendly"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "Good attentiveness from crew, food was fine. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Boeing 787 was uncomfortable on the trip to Doha - hard seat cushions and little legroom. 777 much more comfortable on the leg to USA."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Good food includes veg."
Cons: "Communication with our delay...NOT TOO GOOD"
Cons: "No worries with Hawaiian Airlines’ staff and service … the “free meal” (sandwich) was unexpected, tasty and something not found on other domestic carriers."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was a little cold - but in Hawaii, not always a bad thing!"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late, but we made it to Kona in good time, and we were out of the airport and at our lodging 30 minutes before I thought we would be, so we must have been on time"
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Pros: "Quick flight from Maui to the Big Island"
Cons: "A bit more padding to the seats"
Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Entertainment set up is terrible, only available through app for purchase on tablet or smartphone. Cheap and antiquated. No vegetarian options for food."
Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Cons: "They lost one piece of luggage. Waiting to see if they find it and its returned"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Getting to our seats I was allowed to move one row up to an exit row which was great! Service by attendants was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Boarding, check in and crew were ok."
Cons: "I knew, based on my flight to Hawaii, that there was no included entertainment - a big disappointment. I also knew their food would be mediocre. However, I had called the airline before our trip to request vegetarian meals. We were told that was taken care of. On the flight, we were told that the only meals on that flight were very mediocre chicken sandwiches. Thus, we had no meals."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Nice refreshing juice!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Cons: "We ended up upgrading because kayak doesn’t let you assign a seat and we were the last to get a seat on a very full flight. I will never use Kayak again."
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "The service and food and drinks"
Cons: "How dirty the plane was and especially the restrooms"
Pros: "The gate crew was outstanding in a very difficult situation. They were all very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Scheduled departure was eleven a.m. and actual departure was over seven hours later. We were each provided a $100 credit memo for future travel, but when we tried to reschedule our return trip to avoid LAX we were told the credit could only be used for new travel. Not happy about either the delay or the inability to use the $100 each credits. On top of that, we had to pay $400 rescheduling fees for the two tickets. That looks like a threefer to me. Pretty much sucks."
Cons: "Not clear what line to stand in signs would help Such as if you had a boarding pass you can just stand in the line that will give your baggage tag versus just standing in the general line"
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than those on the long flight from LAX to OGG."
Cons: "Checked bag didn’t make the connection."
Pros: "Good entertainment systems. Easy flying from Maui to Auckland."
Cons: "OMG the food. Were they serious? The Breakfast was the worst food Ive had on my 37 years on Planet Earth."
Cons: "Overcrowded and too noisy"
Pros: "Food was not great but it is always nice to have a hot meal provided on the flight and I also appreciated the Maui Brewing beer they offer during beverage service."
Cons: "I was seated in the back row and found it difficult to rest/relax on this overnight flight from Auckland to Honolulu because the flight crew was in the back socializing very loudly to the point where it was unprofessional. I could tell that I was no the only guest annoyed by the noise.It was very inconsiderate and unprofessional to behave this way while on the job especially during the announcements that I couldn ot understand because of the talking behind me. I fly Hawaiian Airlines often and have never had this type of issue. I was surprised that none of the other crew members said anything to the noisy group of hosts/hostesses."
Pros: "Speedy and friendly service throughout. I did the self check-in and when the worker checked my ID she's told me I was military so I didn't need to pay the check-in baggage fee and refunded me. Awesome benefit to those that serve."
Pros: "Variety of drinks"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours Not serving food and snacks until 2.5 hours after boarding even though it was already 4.5 hours after lunchtime and everyone was starving Flight attendants not responding to the service requests at all"
Cons: "Plane showed up 2 1/2 hours late. Seats in terminal were very uncomfortable and staff had no clue what was going on. They had 3 flights trying to leave from same gate at same time. Plane seats were also very uncomfortable. Once plane was boarded and on way pilot came on and blamed the delay on maintenance issues and weather. Airline delay caused 2 hour delay getting our rental car. We didn't get to our lodging until midnight and should have been there by 7 pm."
Pros: "Overall I was happy. Would fly again."
Cons: "Advertisements annoyed me, especially after waking up. Turn them off plz."
Pros: "The assistance given from curbside to the gate for my husband and I who are elderly and I am disabled in a w"
Pros: "At airport they pulled my husband aside for random screening making us last to board jet."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. Movie selection mediocre"
Pros: "Boarding was unorganized and slow. Flight took off in time but arrived a half hour late. Food was horrid, even by airplane standards."
Pros: "Hawaiian staff and crew are fun people to be around."
Cons: "Last minute gate change."
Pros: "Free guava juice and quick flight"
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Ruth, was fantastic. Very personable and attentive."
Cons: "We had splurged on Business Class as it was our 25th wedding anniversary. Food options were not great. I follow a plant-based diet. Hawaiian Airlines do not offer any meals for plant-based (aka vegan) diets. They have vegetarian, but that is not acceptable for vegans. I spent 8 years living abroad. Many foreign carriers allow you to go online and manage your meals prior to your flight; vegan, kosher, low salt, Hindu, gluten free, etc. Business Class experience was much less than other airlines we've flown. Airbus aircraft are always seem on the "cheap" side to me."
Pros: "Easy upgrade to extra space!"
Cons: "Temperature was too warm in the cabin"
Pros: "The seating and the pleasant stewards."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Last raw no window For window seat"
Pros: "Easy service. Great people."
Pros: "Crew was the best part of the trip! They were courteous, friendly, efficient & helpful! Always with a smile!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre but it was FREE! The last of the airlines to offer that! Hooray for them!"
Cons: "No free entertainment available on a 5.5 hr flight. Touch display for movies didn't work very well."
Pros: "Same excellent service as previous flight."
Pros: "Moved up our flight."
Pros: "Crew were relatively nice until there were mass delays deboarding and they refused to keep us informed as to what was happening. Also, delays at the start (with no AC, so it was very hot in cabin)."
Cons: "I could not eat the food as there were eggs in pretty much all of it (I have an allergy), and I was given no other options, which is unacceptable, especially given that this was a long international flight. Wine was terribly sweet. Touch screen basically inoperative (very tiresome)."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Other than that the plane was packed and the bathrooms got dirty very quickly. Food was terrible! When I booked the flight, tried to find special diet options but were not available. Flight attendant told another passenger that they don't offer special meals."
Pros: "Flight attendents could not get up for the flight due to weather."
Pros: "Left my carry on in the overhead with about $800 in Christmas presents and was able to retrieve in after clearing international customs. Nice, friendly, kind, helpful!"
Pros: "The attendant who picked me up in a wheelchair was very attentive and stayed with me until we got my bags."
Cons: "Having to pick up my bag in Honolulu in order to fly back to the mainland was a hassle, especially because I was being assisted in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful I give them a perfect 10 or a 5 ⭐️ Very accomodating and helpful."
Pros: "Lived the staff on the plane"
Cons: "Did not like that with threw flighis home they would Not check our bags through"
Really old ✈️ plane, needs maintenance inside. Crew was excellent.
NOT THE BEST FLIGHT I'VE HAD RECENTLY
Our flight was 3 hrs delayed
Worst experience ever for my family, on so many levels will never fly with them again.
Charlottetown airport is wonderful. Montreal was a bit confusing & overwhelming but the Air Canada staff were helpful, patient & kind. I’d fly with them again..
Easy check in, excellent onboard service.
Pros: "Food and beverage service was great. Wine/beer and hot meals provided on the long flight were really appreciated. Excellent restrooms on the 787."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for the long flight."
Cons: "The flight itself was great but it was very late in starting due to technical problems with the aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "It would be better if the checked-in luggage is included everytime we book our flight via air canada so it will be hustle free for all the passengers."
Pros: "Not much except the smooth flight."
Cons: "We were served only one drink on a four hour flight. Couldn’t find a flight attendant to get a glass a water. Had my flight attendant call button on for a long time with no response. Flight attendants walked right by while attending to other tasks and never even asked what I needed. There were a few call button lights on that never seemed to be answered. I asked for water but never received it. Rouge seems to be a very sub par airline from its Air Canada parent, as I fly Air Canada frequently and am not new at this. This airline needs to work on customer service and it’s image."
Pros: "I was bumped to an earlier flight after asking 'cause my original flight was delayed."
Cons: "My wife was denied boarding the flight because of some confusion with her documentation. This "kid" that was an Air Canada representative took it upon himself to deny her boarding because of what he claims as documentation not good enough to travel through Canada into the United States. My wife, who's green card is pending has travel authorization by USCIS that expires in Oct. 2018 that permits her to travel back and fourth from Peru to the US. She also has a special stamp from USCIS in her Peruvian passport. We tried our best to make this guy understand. He clearly did not understand the rules regarding her situation. He didn't even bother to get a manager. Furthermore, we were treated terribly by the Air Canada staff at the Lima Airport. They could see I was visibly furious. I had to leave my wife there at the airport not knowing for sure if she was ever going to get out of Peru. When I went to check in my bags, they tried to charge me $250 because both my bags were overweight. One of the gate agents tried to coax me into a fight just so they could call security. The whole thing left me shaken. Not only that, I had to make another reservation for my wife on United Airlines which costs me $1700. She had no problem boarding that flight with her documentation. I find that interesting don't you?"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Pros: "The only person who who tried to relax customers waiting to board was the pilot. Flight was delayed. No updates on monitors, no crew at desk. The pilot was first to arrive and had no information but was engaging and joked with all the passengers just standing around. He was our only assurance that flight was still going. He had same attitude on the plane and seemed determined to get us home eventually."
Cons: "No communication from airline. The flight was delayed but we only find out because we show up to gate and nobody is there. No counter agents. When they eventually show up, there is no explanation. Just acted like everything was normal."
Pros: "Friendly crew, onboard food was fairly decent and an okay price."
Cons: "Even a “preferred” seat on Rouge (27E, bulkhead on B767-300ER) has no legroom. This, combined with a short and low seat cushion means a dead butt. I’m only 5’11” too."
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight. Boarding is a bit stressful because storage is eaten up quickly by other passengers. Great movie selection and decent food. Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was ok, entertainment was great"
Cons: "Seats in ac 787 are very soft, you will feel the knees of the passenger seating behind you, I couldn't fall a sleep, you feel a kick every time the passenger behind you moved his knees. Kosher food was terrible! Not eatible! Plane is very slow l, took 11.5 hours instead of 10 hours with the 747."
Pros: "Nice friendly crew"
Cons: "Limited entertainment; no wifi"
Pros: "The overall performance and teamwork of Air Canada from check-in to landing was the best experience ever with Air Canada. AC has always been my first carrier choice for travelling, and this was the best service in flying the sky with AC."
Cons: "I find that the previous location for Air Canada for checking in at LAX for departure and arrivals was quiker and easier(stop and go)."
Pros: "They provided a meal, a snack, and plenty of beverages. The crew was pleasant, attentive, and helpful."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours. My flight and one other were the last to leave that night. There were no TVs on this flight. The only way to watch movies was on a smart phone or electronic device through their app. My poor old fashioned dad, didn't bring his phone so he would have just sat there for seven and a half hours if I didn't let him borrow mine. AirCanada's alternative is to rent an iPad from them, just another way for airline companies to get money out of us. The movie choices on their app were bad and older. International flights usually have new movies to so it is less likely passengers have seen them already."
Cons: "Airlines should inform parents and their kids that it's NOT OKAY to kick and punch the seats in front of them. I would like to see this as a PSA and via any other communications channel. It's becoming too normal and must be prevented. It's not fair to the rest of us."
Pros: "Late departure due to an incompetent airport crew (the guys who fuel the plane) . The pilot keep us well informed about the delay. Since we left Vancouver late, we arrived late and had to sit on the runway for 30 minutes until we could get a gate at LAX. Again the pilot keep us informed and apologized for the inconvenience, The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Enough empty seats that I could lay out to sleep. The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Hard to believe in 2017 an airline can offer a 9-10 hour flight without any in-flight entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew on board all flights were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination I found that the item I had gate checked had been damaged- an instrument case I was no longer able to close. The zippers had both been busted off. Due to time constraints I was invited to write a review and email which I intend to do. The item itself was gate checked for safety - and to me the damage says that still somehow it is unsafe to fly with an instrument which as a professional musician is frustrating. In addition flights have very limited food options that accommodate persons with gluten/dairy allergies."
Cons: "Noisy misbehaved child passenger."
Pros: "Friendly staff n helpful. Good seats, movies available"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything even the headphones. The seat, the luggages n not even a small peanuts snack they give you. Flight are very expensive for you to pay all extra."
Pros: "I had a medical incident and air Canada moved me to a more comfortable seat and gave me oxygen to help me recover. Also the stuardesses all were really nice and made it their priority to make sure I was doing OK through the rest of the flight"
Cons: "There was no designated person as a medical professional to handle emergency situations. an emergency situation can occur anytime. luckily there was a passenger aboard who knew what to do I think his name was Dave you should give him thanks."
Cons: "Very rude air crew who treats you as a bus passenger, does not completely listen to your requests, on business class. I also had my return connection flight cancelled and moved 6 hours ahead of the original one, which made me just wait that long at the airport."
Pros: "Nice plane on short flight. Why can't they use the nice planes on the long haul flights?"
Pros: "The flight was long, but fine. Meals were very good."
Cons: "I had to buy a one-way ticket. It was $900. + It would have been great to be upgraded for that price!"
Pros: "The staff was great and helpful"
Cons: "Main connecting flight no screens but could use my iPad for to access entertainment. It would be lot useful to supply means peering your pad, even an USB port would be good. Felt sorry for the passengers who didn't have one, but had rent one for $10 to for the entertainment Also from experience the choices was not outstanding"
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Food not enough"
Pros: "People that helped us were personable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 and then 50 minutes. No announcements were made, the screen just changed. I'm glad I went up to ask about my connecting flight to Athens; if I had waited and got on the flight, I would have missed my connection. The people at the AirCanada desk were nice, and were able to find us other seats. However, we were promised seats on the 7:30 flight, but instead were put on the 5:45 flight. We asked for the AirCanada person to call back and change our flight, but she said we would have time (at this point, 1 hour and 20 minutes before the flight left), even though I showed her that there was a lot of traffic between LGA and JFK and we probably would not make it. We had to leave LGA, find our bags and wait in a long taxi line to sit in traffic in a cab we had to pay for our of pocket, and could not make the 5:45 flight. I then had to call AirCanada and wait for 15 minutes for the lady to switch us to the 7:30 flight. In all, we also lost 2 full hours in Athens."
Pros: "It was a short flight and I shared my seating with average weight people. The crew members and the pilots were very informative."
Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."
Pros: "Oddly, entertainment options vastly superior on this 50-minute flight than on the 7-hour flight."
Pros: "Movies were good. Landing was good."
Cons: "Ventilation was not great. And the Wrap was awful."
Cons: "Staff needed assistance in folding stroller - whereas this has never been a concern on porter. - stroller was thrown on the floor at landing and retrieval."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cramped old plane loud and noisy. But it got me where i needed to be."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "There were so many things I didn't like. First of all, the departure time was delayed by 30 minutes. Not cool. Secondly, the plane itself felt very small and old. It was very cold inside the plane which made the ride very uncomfortable. Thirdly, there was absolutely no in-flight entertainment on this flight, making it a very boring experience. I would not recommend this kind of air travel!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "TV, music, and Movies were available at no additional charge. The passed out headphones also at no charge. All of the movies were available with subtitles in many languages. The were snacks, a dinner and breakfast plus a beverage service in between. Pillows and blankets were provided."
Cons: "I would suggest travelers bring their own headphones. Although the ones given out were functional the sound quality was poor."
Pros: "Effective. Good crew. No (bad) surprises."
Cons: "I could not checkin online and had to arrive really early at the airport so the agent could do it at the counter because Air Canada's system screwed up my ticket."
Pros: "movie selections"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical."
Started out with a crying baby in the next seat but fortunately he slept for most of the flight.
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.
Nothing in specific right now
Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"
Pros: "Seats and layout was updated. More room in economy. Staff was personable 3 bathrooms in economy rather than just 2."
Cons: "Offer dinner service for a six hour flight."
Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
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: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
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."
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Cons: "Nothing, overall great experience"
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: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
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: "The gate was right next to the one I flew in from."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "The entertainment onboard was good"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
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: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "Very friendly & accommodating crew. Pilot kept up informed. Personable disposition exuded across the board."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "That it was only a 5/6 hour flight"
Cons: "Movie choices were very limited. Need better snacks than only little mixed crackers."
Pros: "757 first class was excellent"
Cons: "First time using 1st class, now I am spoiled. United coach seats are to small"
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Cons: "Not accommodating"
Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."
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: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "Service/flight attendants were great. Flight was smooth mostly. Space was good as nobody next to me. Flt from YYZ via ORD to SFO misplaced my luggage and got it the next day."
Cons: "ORD to SFO was very turbulent and luggage didn't make it. Seats tight in middle for ORD to SFO"
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!"
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
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."
Cons: "The seats in coach were curved in a weird way. The seats made my posture bad."
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
