Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."

Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"

Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Pros: "The ground staff at Delhi was very helpful in giving us a new flight ticket for the next day for free eventhough they maintained that it was actually Air India's responsibility."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and ran smoothly. In flight crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "We did not have dinner as we tried to get some sleep on this 6.5 hour overnight flight to London. The 767 was in a 2-3-2 configuration for economy plus and general economy. Thankfully they kept the temps cool to the point where we used our coats as additional blankets. I appreciated that the FA’s did not wake us for dinner and they closed my window shade at some point. They were 100% polite and helpful. That said, with the new Polaris Business Sears, UAL has eliminated the restrooms between Business and Economy. So it is a very long walk to the restrooms from Econ Plus and it appears that there are only 4 restrooms for about 120 passengers. Absurd. My family made do because we used the restrooms in the middle of the night when most people were sleeping but this would have been a nightmare after breakfast or with a small child. It appears that UAL has gone for profit over customer satisfaction."
Cons: "Food vegan"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Pros: "The entertainment and crew made it one of the most pleasant flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "The main course was quite gross, but the croissant was nice."
Cons: "Few more food options"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and I appreciated the entertainment options"
Cons: "I have a receipt showing Austrian airlines, was unable to check in online, so I waited in a very long line to get to the Austrian counter only to be told that my flight was actually a United flight and I would need to go wait in that long line for my ticket."
Pros: "Crew attentive and always offering refreshments."
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Pros: "Seats were the most uncomfortable I've experienced in years"
Pros: "The crew and the food was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and one of our bags was left in London."
Cons: "Wholly inaccurate and frankly FALSE information about baggage policies and seating. This was advertised and linked to the baggage policy of Austrian Airlines. I learned at the airport that I would be charged for bags, by United. I am inclined to never use Kayak, Austrian, or United ever again."
Pros: "Meals were good, good service, complimentary food and drink at good intervals"
Pros: "IT WAS UNEVENTFUL WHICH IS WHAT YOU WANT. CREW WAS VERY NICE AND NO CRYING YOUNGSTERS."
Pros: "The crew were super! Extremely attentive and always gracious."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Left on time. Food was better than usual."
Cons: "Audio options were v poor. Not enough leg room even for a small person like me. Stewardesses were too rushed and not v pleasant."
Pros: "Crew were nice; movie selection was very good"
Cons: "It was so so cramped, and the area under the seat in front of me had a support/leg of the seat in front of me right in the way, so I couldn't stretch my legs nor store my bag there. Such disastrous design."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food choices were great. I enjoyed several hours of dimmed lighting, which helped with sleeping and kept my five year old daughter calm. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One irritation was that the temperature of the plane was too cold and we have a/c blowing in our faces most of the trip. We couldn't control it from our overhead fans, so we were a bit chilly."
Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."
Cons: "Flight was freezing cold and staff were very rude. Worst flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "Nothing at all!!! That should really tell you something!"
Cons: "The staff were rude, abrasive, ignored several passengers that were trying to get her attention before take off as 2 overhead bins were wide open and full to the brim. She of course was too busy playing on her cell phone in the back of the plane and ignored/silenced the passenger call button. They were so loud when people were sleeping, yelling ‘trash please’ every 5 minutes, we are not stupid, we can see what you are doing and if we have trash, we will give it to you - so please STOP disturbing my peace and let me bloody sleep!!!! I was never offered any food or drink during the entire flight, not even when I was awake - other airline attendants are more observant and come back and ask us when we are awake if we would like anything to eat or drink. So essentially that was 7 hours with nothing after having paid a little over $700 for what was seemingly the WORST transatlantic flight I’ve ever taken. I travel back and forth often, because I’m a dual national, but I will stick to BA or Virgin Atlantic - the planes and service are far superior to this pile of turd that goes by the name of United. There were no charging facilities (power outlet or USB port) and the TVs had such horrendous resolution that you would get a headache from having to squint at the screen."
Pros: "Flight, crew and reasonable comfort for economy class."
Cons: "Nothing significant."
Pros: "The flight attendants were cheery and quick with their service. Was very impressed."
Cons: "I was sitting in the row behind the extra leg room seat. When they were fully reclined, I could not open my laptop fully, so I had to work with my laptop screen angled toward me. The seat back entertainment screen was impossible to see when the seat in front of me was reclined as well, and the screen did not adjust/tilt. Worst of all, it was extremely difficult to get out of the seat."
Cons: "I thought it was very misleading that my ticket that was emailed to me said "Austrian Airlines" so I got dropped off at the first terminal. But when I arrived, the attendant told me even though it says Austrian, that really Im flying with United. I had to walk 15 mins all the way to Terminal 7. This was a total let down. why was my actual airline not listed ?"
Pros: "I likedthe ease of ticketing, well-organized boarding procedures and flying on a soon-to-be retired 747."
Cons: "I was most fortunate to have an empty seat next to me, but cramped seating makes it hard to be comfortable for 10.5 hours."
Pros: "Three seats to myself, not crowded."
Pros: "Free food and drinks"
Cons: "Wish there was an option for me or even Lufthansa to resell the ticket I couldn't use. $500 wasted"
Cons: "Was surprised to receive dinner and wished they had not served so we could have more quiet time."
Pros: "It was an efficient flight. My only suggestion is for the flight attendants to receive some training on the finesse of service. They could be abrupt and mechanical rather than service oriented."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."
Pros: "I had the worst experience."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled in Munich and I was rerouted to Rome, Italy. In Italy they didn't find my ticket and I was made to wait an extra 4 hours. My carry-on bag was taken in London, as there was not enough room on the fight to Munich, but then when I finally got to Cairo, one day after I was supposed to arrive, both bags were lost and I stayed one week without anything. I missed an entire day of my vacation because of the cancellation and confusion in Rome. I am a Gold Star Alliance member and this was the WORST flight in I have ever taken in my LIFE!"
Cons: "The Audio Visual was inoperative!!"
Pros: "Missing my connection due a security in Newark the plan was 2 h delay"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Cons: "HUGE DELAY. MISSED CONNECTION. CONSTANT UNCERTAINTY"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal good taste."
Cons: "Hour delay by "catering", missed connect at LHR. (United's booking too tight also). TV screen needed "reboot", flight announcements piercingly loud. Requested gluten free meal not provided."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "not to mention non existent entertainment. TV never worked no.map. no interesting info from pilot unlike last pilot we'd had on this flight who'd given us great information on our flight. no apologies. we were told about 50 tvs were out on the flight. the chicken meal was delicious pasta awful (we shared because of that). the couscous salad which lady flight had been super this time was too spicy for us much less if we'd bought a child. if this is the positive ... we got there safely and the boarding was better than sometimes."
Cons: "see above. united which ran this flight more intent on telling you what you can't do than making it a pleasant flight. no entertainment. 75 per cent of food was inedible. will be looking at Ba in future or Virgin despite being United mileage plus members. how about some customer service training?! as a repressed brit living in us I'm not normally a picky passenger. but a smile? sorry the movies aren't working? hi? just the greeting over the intercom makes you feel as if you are an inconvenience. not friendly skies thus time. put off."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Pros: "It was a old plane , entertainment was horrible . There was no choice of movies and other channels . For a flight this long they should have thought about this"
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
