Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"

Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"

Cons: "Cramped seating ; touch screen misaligned makes it near impossible to select entertainment;"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Caused my bags to miss my connection to Mumbai. Very inconvenient."

Cons: "Seats could’ve been a little more comfortable. Maybe I’m spoiled by traveling the A380 more."

Cons: "No food for vegetarian"

Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"

Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible...it was connected for the first 2 hours only then got disconnected for the whole flight duration...I couldn’t watch any movie, tv show, music, live tv, and the crew tried to reset the screen several times with no success, then it worked again in the last hour...I travelled on business class and paid the extra charge for better service"

Pros: "The entertainment system was really good..."
Cons: "The food was poor compared to other airlines...IE British airlines void us great"

Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"

Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."

Pros: "Would have been better if the Veg food was not of the saem menu as in the preceding flight"

Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."

Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."

Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."

Pros: "F"

Pros: "Dubai was fun."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. Not very heathy. More fruit and veg please. I don't like that the flight attendants close the curtain for first class disembarking. Seemed pretty childish and snobby."

Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."

Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I missed the first segment of my flight due to an accident and traffic on the way to the airport. I was asked to pay $1200 to get on to the next flight (without any warning that my subsequent segments will be suspended) so I bought an one way to Dubai from NYC. Then my subsequent flights were all suspended and I had to buy a new set of flights for the remaining of the trip. I didn't get to take any of the flights I purchased through Kayak."

Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"

Cons: "Business class was beyond amazing"

Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"

Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Cons: "Price,"

"I choose Lufthansa cause it’s a good airline with great quality but this one was soo old and poor. Food was terrible. Blankets and pillows very old, looked like they were like used. The chairs were soo uncomfortable"

"I liked absolutely nothing about this. The worst airline I have ever dealt with. We missed our flight. As we were boarding the flight (we arrived well in advance) the flight attendant demanded a negative covid test. We were asked for vaccine cards at checkin, never a negative covid test. They asked us to rebook the flight, thus we missed our flight, had to book a hotel, all of our luggage was going straight to Miami so we have no change of clothes. An absolute nightmare. Next, I stood in line for OVER 2 hours to get on the next flight. They gave no apology or explanation as to the 2 hr wait, nor why we weren’t informed of the negative COVID test in advance. They then recommended a covid testing center in the airport that charged 169 euro a person. I refused and found another less expensive yet approved center. I will NEVER use this airline again, I will never recommend it and I will never come back to Germany. The entire Frankfort airport staff was wretched. Awful experience."

Pros: "yes great"

Pros: "Premium class is awesome. Nice size and comfortable seats with a foot rest. Food as tasty and hot. Attentive attendants."
Cons: "Honestly can’t think of anything!!"

Pros: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Seats, and helping passengers when they have delays"

Cons: "The seat didn’t recline and the entertainment didn’t work"

Cons: "Excelente fly"

Pros: "The crew were truly great as I had an extremely difficult flight due to tremendous pain in my knees. Coach economy are way too narrow, even if I paid for preferred seating. A joke. Cldnt move. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boardingvwas delayed so we left a good 50 minute late. Ran out of meal choice so we had to eat what they had left which was pasta that was too spicy for me anyway. I was very disappointed bec I preferred chicken but there were none left."

Cons: "The travel has bien good"

Cons: "Flight from Berlin to Frankfurt was late, but I made my connecting flight to Amsterdam."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and as far as airplane good goes, it was great."
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "Best company and the 380 is amazing."

Cons: "Passenger in next seat was so big that his fst hung over the armrest and he took up 3 to 4 inches of my space. Lufthansa should not let passengers this big fly in economy class. I appreciate my space in economy will be limited but I should be able to use all of my allotted space."

Pros: "Nice to have more legroom, crew was egficient and accomodating, they treated a sick passanger in the row in front of me with great empathy and professionalism."

Pros: "We very much appreciated you the Lufthansa agent helped us after we missed our connecting flight to Toulouse due to German passport control. She was able to get us on a flight to Munich then on to Toulouse. We were able to get to Toulouse 4 hours after originally planned."
Cons: "Though our flight arrived in Frankfurt on time (6am) we missed our connection to Toulouse (7:20am) because of the passport check in Frankfort. There were only two agents and they were working at a snail's pace. It was incredibly frustrating and if this happens often, those flights shouldn't be advertised as connecting."

Cons: "The food was not good at all. The economy seats are uncomfortable and you should be able to walk around the plane, especially on a 9 plus hour flight."

Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."

Cons: "Need AC outlets and better WIFI"

Pros: "The crew helped my mom very much with her ansiery and were with her at all times."
Cons: "I bought the flight for my mom and she is handicap, the flight got delayed and they wanted to leave her in Frankfurt for 2 days because there was no more flights to the States, in the end they found a flight to Washington DC, she was coming to Miami. She is an old woman who gets lost and I had to order assistance for her, in Washington DC they opened her bags after that they lost the bags, she had medication on them and it was a nightmare to get them back. Im really upset and I don’t think That I’m going to book with this aero line again."

Pros: "all"
Cons: "nothinh"

Pros: "5 Star: Comfort 4 Star: Crew 5 Star: Boarding 5 Star: Entertainment 5 Star: Food.. One of the best flights of 2017 by far. Premium Economy will deliver the basics of luxury comfort."

Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("

Pros: "Crew attention"

Pros: "The same"
Cons: "Nothing to be mentioned everything was good"

Pros: "The flight attendants were always friendly and attentive. No comparison to some other airlines I have flown with. Food was excellent and entertainment as well. Boarding went great especially when considering that the capacity of the plane is for 440 passengers."
Cons: "The seats are very close to each other, so when the person in front of me move their seat back I had to ask him not to."

Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and with few choices. Food was awful."

Pros: "Great movie options, relatively good food for an airplane."
Cons: "Booked way in advanced, paid extra to book upper deck on both; outgoing flight Miami - Frankfurt and return, but was bumped out of our seats. Spent 2 hours on the phone trying to book them again, and ended up on a lower deck on the Miami - Frankfurt flight, but re-booked on the upper deck on Frankfurt- Miami flight although not the side seats as I originally booked myself, but in the middle section. The entertainment's touch screen system is inadequate, not reacting to touch efficiently."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."

Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"

Pros: "Excellent service and very professional crew both on the ground and in the air. Flight comfortable and a right on time. I highly recommend Lufthansa."

Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and helpful. Excellent service."
Cons: "The entertainment interface us slow and kludgy."

Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "entertainment selection"

Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"

Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and rude. Also not very attentive. The crew on the first trip from Miami to Frankfurt in contrast was outstanding. I'm disappointed because this was not up to Lufthansa's standards."

Pros: "There were lots of out of the ordinary (read annoying) behavior. Of other passengers and the cabin crew responded patiently and professionally."
Cons: "Boarding did not proceed by rows as customary so boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone rushing to the gate. The reclining seats aee an issue. Although comfortable for the ones reclining they are uncomfortable and at times painful ( taller people) and makes watching the screen impossible when fully reclined."

Cons: "Entertainment system was very slow."

Pros: "Apart from the turbulence everything was perfect. Flight attendants were very hospitable. Love the aircraft design. Great movie choices for the kids. In addition to that we all reach our destination safely. That's all that matters."

Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy"

Pros: "Top of the line service on a very long but smooth ride"

Pros: "Attendants were extremely helpful as I needed assistance to, and from Munich to Miami."
Cons: "Too long flight time. I left booking up to someone else so not fault of airline."

Pros: "Very kind professional and accommodating crew"

Cons: "Behind my seat there was a couple with a young kid kicking our seat all the time for 8 hours...the crew would walk by saw it and didnt say anything. The kid is young, not his fault. Kids are kids. But when i told his parents that we were being bothered they just ignored us. I believe the crew has to keep an eye on behavior like that and put a stop to it. I guess those are the perks of flying economy class. Cheap and nobody cares..."

Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."

Pros: "I love Lufthansa! It's my preferred carrier!"

Pros: "I like the service in general. Everything was great and the flight attendants where very helpful and kind. The food was good and the entertainment had all types of movies, music and games."
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike"

Pros: "The idea of flying your airline and passing through Frankfurt"
Cons: "Terrible communication, scheduling, and handeling of both passengers and baggage. Worst management of any disembarkation and flight cancellation ive experienced"

Pros: "Smooth flight, very nice, polite crew, good entertainment selection. I'm a tall guy so I'll always complain about comfort lol. Food was OK. Choice of mystery pasta and once beef once chicken ( I had pasta twice )."

Pros: "Crew was polite but kept on speaking to me in German, I am American and only speak Finnish besides English, it was annoying"
Cons: "Having to wait over 90 minutes to debark the plane, this after weather pattern diverted us so much it added couple of hours to our flight, not fun at all. Also the gluten free food ordered did not show up so I got a yogurt the whole 13 hrs, with celiac it impossible to eat anything else."

Pros: "Helpfulness of the crew for special needs"
Cons: "Improve restrooms"

Pros: "Crew were attentive and the plane is always a great one to fly"
Cons: "Boarding was a joke as it's really bad add there is no real order and business class queue doesn't seem to have business people boarding but everyone"

Pros: "Crews were wonderful. Seat space could be better."
Cons: "Leaving on time could be better."

Cons: "Enjoyed it very much. Great crew and clean plane!!"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "LAX has to get its remodeling completed. Getting to Tom Bradley International terminal and taking the bus to our plane was not impressive. The food on Fiji Air is not good."

Pros: "Seating was good for an economy class redeye--the seats (A330) reclined well, though the seat in front of you reclined into "my space". Okay food, polite, efficient attendants, complimentary wine or beer with meals."
Cons: "Two-pronged headset outlet made using my own headset unworkable. Their headsets aren't very good."

Pros: "Amazing service on Fiji Airways"

Pros: "Very friendly crew..."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Comfort was decent."
Cons: "Late due to crew."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."

Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."

Cons: "The temperature in the airplane... Couldn't feel my body!"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and efficient. it was a pleasure to fly with them."
Cons: "The entertainment system had EXACTLY the same movies/shows we had on the flight over. Since we flew like 14 hours, we saw everything we wanted to see the 1st time. Maybe offer different choices on southbound and northbound itineraries."

Pros: "Loved the soft good quality complintary blankets they had available for us on every seat as well as pillow. Really made it feel homey and comfortable. Probably the best airline meal I’ve had. It was like a creamy mushroom chicken with mashed potatoes, cheese wedge, crackers, etc."
Cons: "The luggage weight limitation on carry-on bags"

Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Pros: "Nice blanket, good food, friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "comfortable flight"

Minimum entertainment options - approx 30 movies all together and most were older. Food was not good. Small seats with very little leg too"

Pros: "Flight attendants were terrific, nice to be able to drink and eat with no worries after a week in Christmas Island."
Cons: "I would Jhabvala liked to have a choice of seats in a plane that was not full. Some people had a whole row while others were full."

Pros: "Fiji airways food it horrible.........cant even eat it.. management should eat the slop they give us,, the service is horrible...we are treated like cattle unfortunately i must fly Fiji airways as they have a concession Fiji from LAX"
Cons: "NOTHING .............MY ADVISE IF POSSIBLE AVOID FLYING ON FIJI AIRWAYS"

Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."

Pros: "The plane interior is decent & clean for the most part."
Cons: "I had to call Fiji airways 10 times and explain the situation to 10 different people, got hung up on 7 times, & no one ever called me back to resolve the issue. I ended up having to pay $100 to change a flight because of their cancellation... Flight attendants were bossy and rude. One blew a whistle at a passenger when they got up to use the bathroom after we landed."

Pros: "All of the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. The seats were as comfortable as possible given the length of the flight."
Cons: "Some of the food was actually quite good; breakfast on the return flight was not good. The cabin was extremely cold...I wore jeans, and a sweatshirt and even with the blanket I was uncomfortably cold. My husband, who is rarely cold, even felt chilled."

Pros: "Covered by headline"

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "The only choice of food was curry"

Pros: "The flight was relatively smooth, Fiji air had great food and complimentary wine with dinner. The airport terminal is top notch with traveller comfort of utmost importance. Very nice."
Cons: "The seats were a little cramped and the baggage policy is a bit too strict. My carry-on was overweight so i had to pay $320 pa'anga to check it...that was irritating."

Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."
Cons: "Need to have special ENCLOSED seats for young children and their parents! It was a horrible night hearing a 2 year scream the entire night! The food smelled so bad coming down the aisle, it was nauseating."

Cons: "The button to call a flight steward means nothing. I pushed the button over 5 times and saw others do the same and no one came - it took 15 minutes! In any airline 2 rings and no matter what someone would come if to say wait please. I experienced this 3 out of the 4 flights I had with Fiji Airways. Terrible!

Cons: "Entertainment was limited. Smaller plane / less space"

Pros: "Boarding was quick.... I am just filling space to get to 50 characters as United was quite bad and that’s paying for first class"
Cons: "First class doesn’t get you into their United Club before the flight. You still have to pay for any food in first class. And they tell you need to download the app after you exit the airport area and lose WiFi and coming international couldn’t go and download before flight. United was a huge disappointment."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seating and comfort"

Pros: "Straightforward, smooth flight."
Cons: "One quirk, announced carousel 23 for bags, but no mention of the alphabet A or B. Curious, there should be a way to put the under-seat bag not to deep, up one can stretch legs over it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed for like 12 hours.... I ended up just going home! This flight was important to me and it's sad the service I got. Crew didn't even offer water when we were in plane for 3+ hours. We we're in the plane with no ac. Huge dissapointment"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Almost got diverted to Tampa by thunderstorms, but this was not United's doing."

Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"

Pros: "They actually checked sizes of some “carryons.” Of course, it’s a cash cow for the carrier. The checkers should get 20% of the fee collected for checking oversized carryons at the gate."
Cons: "There are faster, more efficient ways to load and unload passengers."

Cons: "I had very little time to make my connection in Newark. Other airports/airlines have given me a short connection pass which has allowed passengers to make their connection with less stress. The security line inNewsrk was ridiculous. I spoke to a TSA agent who couldn’t have cared less if I missed my flight and a United representative who told me to “just try.” In the end, I had to ask other passengers if I could go ahead of them. While I made my flight with a few minutes to spare, the process could have been much easier and the United Rep could have done more. He could have just called the gate at the very least to let them know I was coming. Apathy is not an indication of good customer service."

Pros: "Great flight experience thank you United."

Pros: "Having a direct flight across the country was a good thing. That was about the only positive, well that & we did land safely."
Cons: "Ticket agent said I could take my bag on the plane. Gate agent told me my bag not I were going on the plane unless I paid $50 to put the bag below if I wanted to get in the plane. Very matter of fact & rude. I was just about the last person they let board so there really wasn't a chance to discuss with them. No WiFi on a cross country plane, lame. No access to the headrest video screen w/o paying for it, lame. Snotty unconcerned flight attendants as well. Overall one of the worst flights I've had in memory. I would pay more next time to fly another airline."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Too crowded and not much space"

Pros: "I had no problems the gate agent was very nice and I did get the basic economy which that only did I have to pay for my bags but I also got the last seat in the back in the corner which is OK I guess I’ll pay more attention to the fair I still probably saved a little money but I don’t know that I save that much I think that sometimes the boarding agent needs to pay attention to the carry-on luggage for sure bring a lot carry-on luggage which doesn’t allow for others to have carry-on luggage who were in the later groups and then they get penalized with their bags being checked as there’s no more room and they’re not basic economy but other than that I like taking United they have nonstop service between Orlando in Houston and it’s been a wonderful experience most of the time and I think the airlines do a pretty good job considering the traveling public themselves to be very challenging at times professionalism and courtesy works both ways and unfortunately people buy tickets and think that it’s a one-way street. they then run to the media who loves to make it about the big guy versus the little guy anyway good job united and I will continue to fly you when you’re the most appropriate carrier to get me to where I want to be."
Cons: "Nothing I just need to pay more attention to my ticket purchase I didn’t realize it was a basic economy until after I bought it which meant I had to pay for my bags which added $50 to my fair which wasn’t that big a deal but then I got a seat all the way the back in the corner which really wasn’t that bad either but if I went to Carrynon a bag I was allowed to do so"

Pros: "Got their early."
Cons: "Took an extra 20 minutes to get our luggage as it came after everyone else's, of course."

Pros: "Got in my seat and took off right on time. Courteous welcoming staff as we boarded and deplaned."
Cons: "The servers serving drinks and snacks, never smiled never said your welcome...maybe having a bad day? Sucks we have to pay to watch anything on tv. We pay enough at least let's us have two hours of entertainment."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Sane"

Pros: "Not much, the staff was ok."
Cons: "Boarding passes were a nightmare. Airline claimed we bought the basic ticket which doesn't allow you a seat choice, or boarding passes without a checked bag and there was no mention of this basic ticket upon the purchase. Then after you take off they explain you need the United app to watch their entertainment, but you can't download it without purchasing a $24. WiFi. They charge higher prices but act like a discount airline. My last trip with them."

Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "They gave us free tv to watch but my headphones didn't work in the jack. Even the pair they gave me didn't work. Also my flight was almost an hour late."

Pros: "Well, at least they gave me a blanket to sleep with."
Cons: "You still have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The flight attendants did not give me any drink or snacks. They did not say goodbye or wish me a good time back home. Flying in the plane itself was awful, as it continuously shook even when weather was alright. The pilot seemed rude. No warnings from the pilot when we were going through bad weather - just a surprise "HANG ON" as the plane would shake in a frenzy. The chairs were also incredibly uncomfortable and very hard to relax on. I couldnt even sleep well, and it was an overnight trip. Seriously felt so disrespected by the crew and the company, and this experience was the same with all 4 flights I took (to portland and back). I will never again choose United."

Pros: "Great price, speedy flight"
Cons: "Don't remember having to be in lines for so long for reserved seats - awful technical delay (1.5 hrs)"

Pros: "It is really bad the seat to small for average person not leg room at all it is a flying school bus."

Pros: "I did not like the plane ride. There were way to many things to comment on. Most importantly everyone of my.flights was delayed."

Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "I was asked to go thru security a 2nd time because of a cloth abdominal binder I wear. I r got it back. And it's medical."

Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."

Pros: "-Complimentary Snack and beverage -Can pick your seats when booking -Changing Tables in restrooms -Entertainment options -Early boarding for families with small children"
Cons: "-Free Soda but charged for water -Had confirmed seats but then our party with 2 toddlers got split up -Semi convenient( rather small could hardly fit a 1 year old) changing table but then flight attendants threw a fit when a stinky diaper was changed in there. -Had to have special programs on device to even play anything, thought I had everything on for return flight to watch movies but nope still needed something extra Wifi only works for United App and Website -Waiting in the shorter line to preboard with our 2 toddlers only to be cut off by a Global Travel Program(?) family with 15+ people"

Pros: "The crew were very kind and attentive without being overbearing. They were helpful."
Cons: "I did not like how my boarding pass for a ticket I had paid for long in advance had a 'see us' note about my seating. The counter attendent waltzed in after boarding had already started and treated the issue like it was a joke. I ended up seated in between two hot messes of people which made the flight seriously uncomfortable, there were no other options supposedly for me. There weren't even options for me to pay the outrageous pick a seat option when I was doing my preflight check in 24 hours in advance."

Pros: "Loved the movies"
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours because of the arrival of the plane"

Pros: "Clean Aircraft. Fantastic Gate Agent."
Cons: "Flight boarded, no auxiliary power unit so no A/C in plane and Pilot unable to start aircraft engines. Stuck in aircraft away from gate for 30 min with no A/C. Finally moved to gate to wait for repairs and allowed to disembark. Flight 2 hours late to Orlando. Direct TV no audio in seat 11F entire flight and I WAS TRYING TO WATCH THE WORLD SERIES!"

Cons: "That the flight was late because the problen with the air condition and that cost me more money"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."

Pros: "That I finally made it to Orlando"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours... Took forever to get on plane once on plane people were in wrong seats so I had to keep getting up so they could figure out who was in the wrong seat. Just a mess. Even crew seemed annoyed. Finally got to Orlando at 3am suppose to be there at midnight."

Cons: "I was thoroughly disappointed when I realized that I had to pay to get any type of entertainment on the in-flight screen. That feels like zero effort on the part of the airline to make my flight enjoyable."

Pros: "i like that the pilot got us there on time, after a 30 minute delay. over a missing catering truck. on a flight this short, i could understand if you could just leaving without it. maybe offer free wifi as a comsolation. but i just wanna arrive on time."
Cons: "the whole delay over a catering truck. who cares if i cant get a coke or a cookie? just skip it. i get that you as a company, want the chance to upsell. but if its cutting into my time, im not gonna patronize you in the future. luckily the pilot made up the time in the air. but if i missed my shuttle over your mistake, id be more upset."

Pros: "Boarding was fast, enough overhead compartment room, loved the wifi and free inflight entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't like the crying babies on board or the little girl that kept kicking my seat , otherwise it was a great flight."

Pros: "The flight attendant were super nice. Really nice people"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Then the guy on the front desk was really rude .. Maybe because I'm Latino? I mean he was super friendly with a white guy and a African American girl .. But with me .. Rudeness and bad service .. I said "hello , how are you?".. He didn't answer .. I told him when I did my checkin my boarding pass had "See agent" in the seating section .. He just took the ticket and gave me the last sit available on the plain even though I arrived almost 3 hours before the original departing hour .. I don't know .. It might be the only available sit or it was just a racist thing .. Who knows .. Really disappointed with United. I'll go back with Ameican Airlines."

Cons: "Kayak failed to alert me that MCO has an A & B bagge pickup areas and did not indicate which area I would find my luggage."

Cons: "Delayed because there was no crew to fly the plane switched gates 6 different time other than that everything was good"

Pros: "Snacks on board - but not always available. Liked that the flight was direct."
Cons: "Didn't like middle seat, but had no option. Didn't like having to pay for movies so I didn't. Didn't like restrictions on luggage and having to pay to check in a bag. Didn't think the staff were friendly or helpful at all. Wouldn't recommend this airline to my friends because of those reasons. Need more improvements."

Pros: "Just the boarding was ok"
Cons: "This was a horrible experience I hope I never use this airline again."
