The flight was almost full, and the airline was not able to seat the family together, even though we tried to check in online 24 hours before the flight. The food was much better than what is usually served on airlines, and the choice of entertainment was quite extensive.

Cancelled flight at the last minute, tried to sell the same ticket for triple the price.. very poor service

Good service

My luggage was left at doha nd flight landed houston. Horrible experince i had this time.

I love Qatar Airways.Thanks to all the people who serve the airline

The best airline ever

My TV screen was freezing, it was hard to navigate. Everything else was just excellent.

Pros: "GOOD FLIGHT"
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Food was good and crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft from Doha to Dhaka."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is the best first class airline in the world hands down"
Cons: "Nothing they do a great job!!!"
Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Did not serve vegetarian food even after repeated requests"
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"
Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
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: "Dreamliner"
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"
Cons: "The problem is when they linked a flights frome other airlines companies. Under ( one world ) On this flight the were linked with sirlankian airlines The flight was full and a lot of older asian on flight they don’t respect people and speak loudly The smell was not good enough"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"
Pros: "12 hrs transit must give Hotel, without Hotel it was bad!"
Cons: "More than 10 hrs transit must give Hotel !!"
Pros: "Plane was new and very nice."
Cons: "Kuwait airport is extremely un organized. Also you cannot upgrade your ticket as the staff in Kuwait are not able."
Pros: "the attendants were always on top of things. One of best overall flights ever."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Although I felt Qatar responded poorly to the cancelled flight, the actual flying experience was wonderful and made me forget about the extreme inconvenience and poor customer service regarding the cancelled flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."
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: "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: "long long long trip in the middle of the trip ther is no water to wash my hands"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Good crew. Nice plane and amenities."
Cons: "Flight to was canceled due to engine issues. Flight home was canceled due to scheduling error. Issue resolved at check in, but caused stress."
Pros: "Wonderful Experience with Qatar airways, as always."
Cons: "Leg room is tight, as it's with other economy airlines. Aside from that, there is really nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Maybe the food"
Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."
Pros: "The views from the plane"
Cons: "A bit more room"
Pros: "The crew was great. I have sensitive ears, so sitting beside the loud engine is not something that I liked. I was uncomfortable, until I moved."
Cons: "having some ear plugs"
Cons: "The seats and the flight entertainment."
Pros: "The gate attendant switched me to an earlier flight. Made my night much better."
Cons: "I really have no complaints. Airplane seats are never all that comfortable, but short flight, so these were okay."
Pros: "Barely had any interaction with the crew. They greeted me when I came on board but that's about it. Not much can happen on a 45 minute flight. I had a good aisle seat; thank you Orbits."
Cons: "This plane was very basic; no technology and the tray table was TINY; not easy to put ANYTHING on. Useless! It got the job done. No sooner were we up in the air then we landed."
Pros: "The flight attendants and gate agents were very pleasant. My luggage was already at the baggage carousel when I got there."
Cons: "HNL has far too little space outside of security and has too few TSA agents, so the security lines are horrible."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Long flights get boring. But that’s not the airlines fault."
Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the aircraft and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Entertainment is not free, and you have to have your own device. The food was a very small snack for the length of the flight."
Pros: "It’s wonderful to fly like our grandparents did with the style & comfort along with the service they enjoyed!! I cannot think of any other airline that serves a meal and on going snacks. I feel I got first class service (which I cannot afford) for a coach rate! Stepping onto the plane you get a sense of the islands. I’d recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "Being a 6 ft woman, leg room is important for me, which I had, but the seat where a bit close together."
Pros: "Line up process to board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We upgraded our seating for roomier and it was fabulous ..."
Cons: "The WiFi did not work and a snack instead of a meal and having a six hour flight with NO entertainment was not cool in my book"
Pros: "Boarding was great, seats were not too cramped, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Hawaiian Air changed our seat assignments which I did not find out about until checking in for our flight the night before. My wife and I were 20 rows apart and we were moved from aisle seats to window seats. Flight was fully booked so no way to change. The aircraft did not change, so I am unsure why seat assignments changed."
Pros: "Fast boarding and fast disembarking."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Everything was fine in general."
Cons: "Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it."
Pros: "From check in to inflight excellent"
Cons: "Nothing other then screaming babies, people don’t fly with your screaming baby, do stay cations"
Cons: "Luggage not transferred to this flight. Delayed leaving airport timely to file missing luggage report. Delay meant we had to upgrade car rental because unit originally reserved was rented to another party who was able to timely get luggage and rent car with no delay. Note, did finally receive luggage about 5 hours later, came in on next flight from mai to Kauai."
Pros: "Punctuality,polite,courteous staff"
Cons: "Can't recline seat for particular."
Cons: "flight left late and onboard service was quite poor, including the so called meal of a mushy chicken parts sandwich. Also Hawaiian no longer responds when you push the service button. Unlikely I would fly Hawaiian again."
Pros: "Still thinking about other!"
Cons: "Food, uncomfortable in my seat - could not move seat backward , crew not very smiley. First time using airline will not book in the future."
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."
Pros: "Staff gave out some wonderful fruit drinks."
Cons: "Flight was hard to get boarding passes printed out. Had to go through agents, and couldn't use kiosk very well. Window seat was changed to an aisle seat last minute so I couldn't look out as we landed in Kauai"
Pros: "Not much to like when your reservation is not upheld and your property is lost and you miss your intended outing due to no fault of your own. Really poor customer service."
Cons: "I didn't like any of it."
Pros: "The flight to lax was good. It was awesome. The flight to HI sucked. But you can't win them all. I'm happy i guess."
Cons: "Everything was cool. I guess."
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."
Cons: "Air craft too old. Lot of noise in the back section. Not comfortable for economy seating."
Pros: "Not that much, your airline is going to a place that is limited in air travel competition."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the buying options for food is dreadful. The seats have no USB to charge a device (the most important feature to me. And every airline is required to have its customers fill out that form to come into Hawaii - BUY A PACK OF PENS!!!!! It's not my responsibility to have a pen - totally annoyed about this one small amenity not being offered. Also I'm sick of hearing your plug for a credit card."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Pros: "Service of all staff is the best and friendliest of any American carrier, period."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Our first flight on Hawaiian Airlines. Short but wonderful staff"
Pros: "On schedule"
Pros: "The flight was short and sweet, really only have good things to say!"
Pros: "Seats were like a park bench, not comfy. Crew indifferent. It was such a short flight maybe that’s the best you can expect, but I would hesitate to book a longer flight on Hawaiian"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "bad pog"
Pros: "Breakfast, juice, smooth flight"
Pros: "Staff very friendly, quick flight but still gave us juice and a map of destination island. Nice touch"
Pros: "No food or entertainment options available, but you do get a beverage of juice or water. The flight is very quick (under 1 hour) so it's nothing fancy."
Cons: "I wish there was an option to watch a movie. The screens were off the whole time and no tv's in the seat. I saw an ipad was an option but more i had to spend. Overall you guys are smooth and inviting as a company"
Cons: "Our flight did not leave til 8, boarding was from 7:15-7:40, we arrive a little late, 7:19, but still makable and they would not let us put our bags on the plane. Where is this policy made clear for people? As far as we knew we still had 20 minutes. Our options were we could pay 700+ dollars per person to reroute our plane, or we could go to Hawaii without our stuff, which was just not within reason obviously."
Pros: "In-flight fruit juice was tasty."
Cons: "There was something wrong with the plane. Was not realized until the plane was loaded and doors were shut. We had to deplane and wait for new plane while they got crew transferred and plane ready. Ended up being about an hour delay - not too bad considering."
Cons: "There was no TV's for each individual.. It's a small complaint.. But yea.."
Pros: "Short flight no food just a drink"
Cons: "Once we got to the airport we lost all assigned seating. Not good."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the trip was smooth"
Cons: "Food-poor. A plastic bag handed in your lap with 1/2 turkey on white and 1/2 Egg salad sandwich on stale wheat bread! It's so far from the service Hawaiian used to provide that it ruins the reputation more than helps it. Why bother? It's obvious that it's only a half hearted attempt at best. Asked for a better seat n got the seat next to the restroom. It was literally 5 1/2 hours on a flying toilet with people constantly in and out the whole trip. I should at least been warned."
Pros: "Online check in, no luggage, mobile boarding passes, boarded quickly and took off immediately LOL! Ideal flight!"
Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"
Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"
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."

Crew member was extremely helpful with all passengers and was trying to make everyone comfortable .she had a cheerful disposition.

Delayed by 1.5 hours.

Disembarking much better and safer when controlled by flight attendant

There was no flight. Flights got cancelled. Kayak or British never informed us. I had to call so many times and wait hours to get to talk to someone. Made my vacation pretty bad. I still havent heard from anybody. No apologies, nothing. Just horrible!

Pros: "They dont let me in the plane I loose the flight"
Cons: "i loose the flight they dont let me in the plane"
Pros: "I was unable to board my flight given British airways misinformed me about a COVID test prior to boarding for a flight to Israel. This resulted in a $50 fee, loss of money."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."

Cons: "Some free snacks could have helped"
Pros: "We got to London on time"
Cons: "Is an old plane with a old hard product needs to be retired or retrofitted"

Pros: "We finally got there."
Cons: "Make water available at Heathrow 5 (2drinking fountains for thousands) and no water or any drink on the plane."
Cons: "Delayed and missed my connecting flight. Total cluster."
Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Cons: "One flight attendant was exceedingly rude during the boarding process, but thankfully she was not in our area."
Pros: "New planes, good food, professional crew."
Pros: "Original timing"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic affair. Landed late but no mention of apology. Disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived 20 early in AMS and departed LHR 5 min behind schedule"
Pros: "Sydney arrival amazing swift immigration and customs staff polite another step forward Australia"
Cons: "The BREAKFAST wow CHILLED egg and bacon sandwich it may have been delicious in 1956 on an old Viscount but really substandard is an understatement LATE too tight to speed up ie spend more on fuel which increases the stress for me as now we are really close to missing the next leg but praise be - arrival was amazing once we got off the plane see above"
Pros: "The crew was great and made the flight comfortable and easy! They brought drinks as needed, free of charge, movies and headphones were provided, and the flight arrived ahead of schedule in London! A wonderful experience! Would absolutely fly again and was so pleased to find the deal on kayak!!!!"
Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"
Pros: "Meal service"

Pros: "Plane was new and very comfortable. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants had to serve food/drinks, which they did the entire flight (literally, drink service took 2 hours). People got drunk and super loud. We were late leaving London which isn’t an issue except the people at the BA desk were the least helpful. We found out more from the pilots than anyone in the airport."
Pros: "Nice variety of movies to watch on personal screen. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food too spicy and not British enough. Button on chair broken so unable to recline even a little on long flight. Luggage not transferred to final destination...stayed in London"

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "A 30 minute delay in taking off caused by de-icing."
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Cons: "it is ridiculous that i should have to pay 75 euro for my first bag. additionally, BA doesn't even give you free refreshments anymore!!!! When every other airline does better than BA on these fronts, why would I ever fly with them again?"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Cons: "I paid for TWO EXTRA suitcases for my flight. I carefully packed and weighted them in advance. The "lady" on the counter made me remove one jacket and one pair of boots from each suitcase because it was GRAMS over the limit. Grams those that my hand scale did not accuse at all. The following customer right after me had KILOS OVER the limit (almost SEVEN) and were not flying business or first class, regular economic class just like me. And they did not had to remove a thing from their extra heavy suitcases. What is the company criteria? Anyway, I bought me another return flight on OTHER airline and simply lost my return flight on BA. I am never flying this horrible company again."
Pros: "Flight was not to crowded"
Cons: "Seat are smaller than usual"
Pros: "It’s was very good thanks"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine with the meal!"
Cons: "The entertainment was kind of blah and the food was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transfering at Heathrow is a stroke-inducing experience. Just getting from one terminal to another takes close to an hour. Add to that sadistic, bossy security personnel, incomprehensible flight announcements (in England!!) and trademark British incompetence -- Brexit can't come soon enough!"
Cons: "We were mislead on gate assigment which impacted our whole experience. There was no entertainment"
Pros: "Choice of food and cabin crew"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Cons: "It would be nice to have a free juice or soft drink on this flight. They only offer free water, and then you have to ask for it."
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Old media system and plane"
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "Reasonably efficient and comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The temperature was extremely warm and the food was terrible."
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Cons: "We missed this flight due to Kayak's failure to get us on any other flights to Chicago after our original one was cancelled."
Pros: "Routing"
Cons: "English airline food. Flight attendant's after shave too strong, started me sneezing every time he walked by."
Pros: "The seats on this little plane were more comfortable than the huge double decker plane."
Cons: "My Entertainment device was broken"
Pros: "The crew was attentive. I was seated by the window and couldn't get out unless I inconvenienced the two people sitting next to me. Whenever I needed water, I just pushed the attendant button and they brought me ice water, without me even asking."
Cons: "The seats! OMG. The person in front of me leaned her seat back and I swear her head was on my chest. I couldn't even watch my video monitor until I leaned my seat back. I felt really bad for the guy behind me. He was a bigger sized guy and he didn't have the option of leaning his own seat back."
Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Bad food. Very few portions. Serving drinks only once and making one pick a beverage for the meal and nothing mere."

It was ok. Nothing to get excited about.

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.

great personal interaction by flight staff. Small point. Having missed eating the main meal served just after boarding as I needed to sleep as I had been travelling 24 hours , the promised inflight light snack was not offered and not obvious how to get it. Would have appreciated more drinks offered throughout the flight.

Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Pros: "The reps at customer service were very nice and helpful. Kudos to them"
Cons: "I missed my flight to Grand Junction the night before because my plane from Dulles was delayed. So, consequently I had to spend the night in Denver. I was not pleased with that at all."
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: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."
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: "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: "The breakfast sandwhich they gave me for free (because they didn’t have lunch? Idk they just said don’t worry anout it when I went to hand them my card)"
Cons: "Of course economy is just not comfy. Also I couldn’t sit with my girlfriend :( And the backside of the seat in front of me was dirty (fluid stains). They also didn’t have lunch on a 6 hour flight from 9am-3pm"
Cons: "cancelled"
Cons: "I hated that the flight was about 90 minutes LATE which made me almost miss my next flight (had I not jogged an entire airport, I would have)"
Pros: "Clean, good crew, not too cramped."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable on the upright position. It would be nice to have some complementary food on a long haul. Even air Dolomiti on a 1 and a half hour flight offers better than... pretzels!"
Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Crew was responsive to an engine circuit breaker issue while taxiing and returned to the gate to have it addressed. Took off two hours late, but secure in the knowledge that the problem was not a flight safety issue. Kudos to the crew."
Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."
Pros: "The service was excellent! The crew was happy and accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "Flight attendant where very nice and courteous"
Cons: "Entertainment took a while to upload or kept freezing on screen"
Pros: "Got an earlier flight direct to Boston."
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."
Cons: "One hour on tarmac."
Pros: "I'm sure this flight would have been fine if it wasn't missed due to previous maintenance delays on my first flight causing a catastrophic snowball to my entire trip."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "I like that they had freer media for us to see and wifi abalibl"
Pros: "Same as above (for both flights"
Cons: "Same as above (for both flights"
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: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Small chair"
Pros: "On time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Boarding process needs work. Wifi and entertainment only worked for first 1.5hours of flight."
Pros: "We weren't very late into montrose despite the wait"
Cons: "Must have been 80 degrees in the cabin, air from overheard nozzle was warm Waited at the gate having boarded for 20 minutes"
Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."
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"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They offered refreshments when we needed."
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: "Friendly crew, easy, quick boarding. I had gate checked my bag. Upon arrival, it wasn't brought up with the others. A ground crewman said he would find it. After a few minutes he returned with my bag, thanked him profusely, he saved the day for United"
Cons: "I am tall and don't fit the curvature of the seatback plus the padding of the seat pan was too hard"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled 3 times before 9am..... me like me any passengers arrived really really early to FWA & they cancelled flight because of mechanical issues. Which is fine but the airline had no backup plan.... meanwhile planes just leaving out of FWA & all we kept getting was updates on a cancelled fligyt AGAIN.... now im in a cab traveling 2 1/2 hours to IND to hopefully get on a flight to EWR.... but honestly I am lacking confidence it will happen"
Pros: "After the 2nd broken plane, they gave everyone $10 food coupon"
Cons: "Three hour delay, two broken planes, but all things considered not too bad."
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: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."
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."
