Airline reviews

Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"

Pros: "Great seating"
Cons: "Free internet in long flights"

Cons: "I think the food in our flight was not that good.."

Cons: "For business class SQ, the crew service was severely sub-par. Seat arrangement same as in bigger 777, so actual space is much shorter and therefore uncomfortable for sleeping and lounging."

Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."

Pros: "okayish"
Cons: "Delay could be complimented by faster speed"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Better food, better selection movies"

Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"

Pros: "I have bought air ticket a few months in advance. I have paid a lot after changing the flight schedule."
Cons: "I will not buy the air ticket from cheap ticket any more."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"

Pros: "More space then previous flights. Attendants very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Ran out of the food choices by the time they reached me. Had to make do with what was left."

Pros: "Food was pretty good. Loved the Weiss ice cream bars"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat ever. Wouldn't recline. TVs small and poor quality. Sound patchy. Not a pleasant flight. Must have been an old plane."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "food"

Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"

Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."

Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"

Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."

Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("

Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Because the flight from IAD to London was cancelled, I never made it to this flight."

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Entertaiment"

Pros: "I love traveling on Singapore airlines. They have excellent service and always on time. Their entertainment system is very good. I won't say excellent as I've seem Emirates and they still have along way to go to catch up."
Cons: "They did not give us the landing cards and we had to fill them in at the airport. Many were like us and I am surprised. Also for business class passengers they don't get into a priority lane as you see in Emirates and other airlines. while Singapore airline is very good, they still lack in the details."

Pros: "Great they are now flying Canberra to Singapore. Judging by our full flight it is very popular also!"

Pros: "The cabin crew are very helpful and friendly. I sat at the end of the row in the upper deck. After the gate door closed , they let me sit in the empty sit away from the toilets . During the flight they’re around with water and juices to make sure we’re dehydrated,"

Pros: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."
Cons: "Announced early landing but then doing circles without any update, we ended up being 30min late. Updates would have been good."

Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."

Pros: "The hot towels. The meals were good. The entertainment screen was great, and a great selection of movies and TV."
Cons: "Don't change anything!"

Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."

Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."

Pros: "Great flight amazing service"

Pros: "Professionalism and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Seat not great for my length even though it was business class"

Pros: "Flight Delhi to Singapore was uncomfortable. Flight to SFWas very comfortable. Roomy seats. Good service."

Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"

Cons: "The headset didn’t work properly so had to listen to music and movies through half the earphones."

Pros: "Everything. Nothing negative."

Pros: "Emirates is a great airline with friendly staff and an amazing fleet of aircraft"
Cons: "I had updated for my flight from Jeddah to Dubai, but found that business class passengers were not given priority boarding and had to wait for all other passengers to board. The plane also took off late."

Pros: "Quantas Operated by Emirates is definitely not Emitrates standard."

Pros: "Left on time. Reached early. Flight crew was friendly. In flight entertainment was good."

Pros: "A380 economy cabin, excellent legroom for a 6"2 bloke like me. Seat was wide enough too. Really good food and a cracking entertainment system. Happily fly them again."

Pros: "Was overbooked from start -"

Pros: "It was a smooth and pleasant journey."
Cons: "Menu options were somewhat limited"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flighet delay"

Cons: "There were not proper announcements for delay of flight. Flight moved from gate while overheads bins doors were still open, lots of passengers were still standing, walking in the aisles. Even though I told Steward not to wake me for the meals but still I was woken up 3 times for two serving of meals."

Pros: "spacious aisles, friendly stewardesses"
Cons: "4 hour delay and a missed connecting flight because of that delay."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Cons: "The Crew was very inexperienced and had difficult time in managing the passengers. The food also below par!"

Pros: "Boarding process followed at LHR #3 was well done and organized, made good use of passenger's time. Desk personnel at LHR #3 was professional, as was crew on aircraft into Dubai."
Cons: "No breakfast (had sticker on seat to wake up if needed) and ended up awake whole flight. Flight for LHR to Dubai did not provide breakfast although 1950 -> 0550 red-eye flight"

Pros: "I liked the complimentary alcohol, but you had to get up and ask for additional beer /wine/etc...."
Cons: "They need to be better at cleaning up... I had to clear trash from others frequently"

Pros: "great lie flat bed, was too tired to take advantage of the service"

Pros: "This was my first time getting a bump up to First. Loved the dining options and comfort level. Staff on board were wonderful. Shower a particular novelty but it did perk me up prior to landing."
Cons: "I cannot fault anything about his experience. Simply fantastic."

Pros: "Emirates flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bug in Kayak app cost me £60 through the flight not being confirmed and having to rebook. Be vary wary of the Kayak app."

Pros: "Timing, service, comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"

Pros: "Emirates is easily the beeeest airline out there. Their economy beats almost every other airline, and their rewards system is fantastic (truly rewarding -- I get free flights all the time for being a Skywards Silver member). The food is so much better than other airlines too. I ordered a vegan meal and their vegan meals over the past 6 years went from absolutely awful to incredibly delicious and gourmet. Their entertainment system is also the best Ive seen across all airlines. They have movies that are literally still in theaters, as well as old classics, comedies, horrors, tv shows, world movies in every language, audiobooks, meditation guides and more. The crew is totally accommodating. Happy to keep flying on Emirates for every flight !"
Cons: "I haaaate that there are no footrests. It literally makes the biggest difference. These flights are always so long and its impossible to sleep unless you have three or so seats in a row to yourself."

Pros: "I felt that the crew kind of forgot about us; there were lots of trolleys going by with drinks but each presumed that we had been served. I also felt that the crew in this section weren't friendly. I know it was an extremely busy flight but there wasn't much eye contact with the some of the crew, I felt that the stewards (men) were the least friendly."
Cons: "The food was bland and boring but i do like having real knives and forks. The white wine choice wasnt good. The crew didn't seem that familiar with the types on offer, ie savignon blanc, chardonnay etc. They just handed you the wine and hoped it would be ok. I felt for such a long flight the crew could have announced that if anyone would like extra snax or drinks then feel free to call a member of the crew or even go to the kitchen and ask. Wifi was offered on the flight but it wasn't explained how to use it so I didn't have this facility as I couldn't connect! Once we asked it was explained but I still wasn't able to connect. Would be helpful if this could be explained / announced to the passengers."

Pros: "Crew is attentive and helpful. Seats are comfortable in economy class. Bathrooms are well equipped and generally speaking clean. Meals are good quality."
Cons: "I would change the snack in the flight Milan to JFK. instead of the pizza pesto, I would offer fruit options or regular breakfast food although it is a snack."

Pros: "Safety, on time, A380 is better than B777 (comfort)"
Cons: "Food, i like the hot bread rather than cold bread"

Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The hand luggage compartment of the aircraft makes terrifying noises during turbulence like it is going to drop on one's head during the flight. It should be fixed."

Pros: "Good space"
Cons: "It's unfortunate that when you order a special meal you dont get your drinks until after you have eaten your meal. and if you end up waiting then you end up having a cold meal. It would be great if this could be changed"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Cons: "There was only one hour of wifi, seriously? I mean Dubai is one of the nicest airports but maybe whats necessary is to be able to cater and not just put up even more redundant shops which lack people. People are traveling and might actually need to be in contact especially since flights are so spaced out"

Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing was amiss"

Pros: "Food and seat and entertainment"
Cons: "Check in time is too early (at least 90 hours before departure) Not part of sky team or star alliance"

Pros: "Entertainment and food and drinks. The recline in the chair allowed for sleeping."
Cons: "I wish there was more seat room especially when the seat in front reclines."

Pros: "Had 3 seats to myself as plane wasn’t full."
Cons: "Long walk from connecting flights at LAX and incorrect gate number on schedule, necessitating even more walking. Exhausting before even getting on plane."

Pros: "First rate crew, friendly and professional through the long flight. The food was excellent and the crew offered snacks and drinks between meals. I paid the extra to sit in a section upstairs that I was able to get up and move around frequently."
Cons: "It’s a long flight but that can’t be helped. Economy seats are really cramped and so I paid $190 for more leg room on the way back. Would highly recommend. I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line."

Pros: "I slept for 12 of the 15 hours so? Food was good!"
Cons: "More leg room."

Pros: "One member of the crew did her best to treat me as a premium FF member. That was about it."
Cons: "Qantas really screwed up the operational management of this flight resulting in a long delay into Sydney and then a further delay to Brisbane. Getting the water weight and balance right is FLIGHTOPS 101, but not for this B Team. Much of the flight delay was completely avoidable."

Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."

Pros: "Crew was fine, seating was ok. Appreciated food and snacks, boarding - and disembarking- was handled super well."
Cons: "How do you enforce 'quiet time' when there are chatty children in the row in front and in back of you? Was constant distraction."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Made me run from connecting flight in Sydney."

Pros: "Smooth flight and well managed. Coffee just not up to Australian standards."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"

Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"

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

Cons: "I tried to change the date and/or the routing for the return flight, but it would have cost more than to buy a new one-way ticket, so I didn't use it at all -- and got no refund."

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."

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

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and understanding , helping us in best manners."

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"

Pros: "This flight was delayed and caused significant disruption to the remainder of our travel plans. We missed our next two flights and had to forfreit the cost of a hotel."

Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."

Pros: "Overall the flight was lovely. Flight crew was wonderful and I can’t say enough good things."

Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Thank you Qantas I enjoyed the flight, the service was excellent. Cabin crews were friendly. Overall excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing that I dislike."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "Roomy, boarding was efficient, clean"
Cons: "some crew member favoring, service attitude"

Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"

Pros: "Not to much turbulence"
Cons: "Mainly the lack of leg space"

Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"

Pros: "toddler seat. Staff took care of my family and went out of their way to find us and got us situated."
Cons: "food selection"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"

Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."

Pros: "Smooth flight, good breakfast options, easy check-in, flight was on time."
Cons: "I"

Pros: "Economy cabin red-eye service Perth to Sydney included sandwich and drink soon after departure, quiet cabin with ample at-seat entertainment for those electing not to sleep on the way, and cold bottle of water immediately upon decent in the morning. Being from the US, the cabin and service level far exceeds domestic service offerings from the large US carriers. Value quickly exceeds that of low-cost carriers, especially as a checked bag is included."

Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."

Pros: "Overall everything was great, flights were on time, boarded efficiently, staff very friendly."
Cons: "I think the service of offering passengers to order their food online prior to the flight is nice, but in practice is inefficient and frustrating at service time. We chose not to order in advance as we didn't know what we wanted. I was annoyed and frustrated to have to wait for the crew to go to and fro with meals and drinks to the pre-ordered customers before being offered our meal. I imagine that if the entire flight preordered their meal, it was also not work so well..."

Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"

Pros: "Direct flight to Brisbane. Cheerful crew doing their best with what they had to deal with."
Cons: "Late departure. Remote boarding gate to bus. Even more remote field from which plane departed. Overcrowded flight. Poor quality food. Access to Qantas Club denied (only for first class passengers)"

Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes."

Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."

Pros: "Crew: helpful/cheery, cabin: clean"
Cons: "Reclined seats intrude on passenger behind"

Pros: "Appologises for the delay and the pilots attempt to make up time. The care taken during the turbulent period."

Pros: "Despite the fact that there was a nearly 9 hour delay in Sydney, Qantas handled it as best they could. I received three $15 meal vouchers to use in the airport. And, since I missed my connecting flight, Qantas booked a hotel for me, free shuttle service to the hotel from the airport and rebooked me on the earliest connecting flight. I was of course inconvenient for this to happen but it was handled well."

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Pros: "Great check in, comfy plane, with arm rests that go fully up, even when the plane is taking off and landing."
Cons: "The lamb meatballs with couscous was the worst tasting thing I've ever eaten on a plane ever."

Pros: "spaced out"
Cons: "there was no food alergy alternatives (Gluten Free)"

Pros: "This was my first flight in Polaris and I was very impressed. I had a window seat and the cabin is configured so that you do not have to climb over someone else to exit your seat. In some other business class cabins on other airlines this isn’t always the case. This reminded me of a BA first class cabin setup. Nice large TV screen and window locker to hold items you want to access during the flight and also a small locker with a water bottle, headphones etc. Food was good and there is an option of do not disturb that you can switch on from your seat. One passenger slept through this meal and the crew were able to reheat his meal. Final comment. I had a 70 minute layover between landing from Hamburg and leaving to the US. Heathrow is a big airport and on a previous flight with BA I have missed a connection with a 90 minute layover. However with United, it was very efficient. No time to visit the lounge but made it to the gate with approx 10 minutes to spare."

Pros: "Not so many passengers so we're all spread out and enjoyed the space and privacy. Got free upgrade to Premier Plus."
Cons: "There flight was a bit on the long end (9.5 hours). There was at least one baby crying pretty much most of the flight."

Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was poor"

Pros: "Came close to missing flight because of gate delay because of connecting flight, but one of the flight attendants saw I was flustered and sweaty and gave me a cup of water before the flight even took off. Very thoughtful and nice."

Cons: "My name was on both reservations, i did not notice this until my wife and i tried to check in. They would not change the name on one of the tickets to my wife, Kathleen. So we had to cancel the entire reservation. I have trip insurance with Allianz, and am trying to get a refund for the tickets. If"

Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and very helpful; one gentleman even took time to help me figure out how to get around the airport before we landed since I had a very short amount of time to make a connecting flight."
Cons: "Honestly, this was the best flight I've ever been on. I've never had the pleasure of having an entire flight crew be so friendly, and since the flight wasn't full, it was very comfortable."

Pros: "Generally flight was ok."
Cons: "Food was not too much. Probably men was hungry, for me it did not taste good."

Cons: "Totally false information provided by Kayak re: seating and seat assignment. Sold as Austrian Airlines flight w/ links to their baggage policies and ability to pick seat. Arrived at airport and told I must check in with United, who charged me baggage fees contrary to Austrian policy."

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: "Helpful crew and loads of space on bulkhead with bassinet (had to pay extra for the seats though but worth it when travelling with five month old)."
Cons: "Misinformed about luggage being checked all the way to Auckland - like other US airports all luggage must be collected and handed over again for onward journeys. Also travel cot was lost in transit."

Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."

Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"

Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."

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

Pros: "The seats on the 777 give a little more leg room than other airlines. They are attentive with the food, which isn't bad. The attendants were pleasant. Lots of choices for movies, tv, or relaxation screens on the small individual screens."
Cons: "They never offered earphones for the movies. Good thing I had some in my bag already. I also wish airlines would make small bags available for passengers to put their trash."

Pros: "The crew was stellar! For a change, the flight wasn't too full, and one of the flight attendants went out of her way to move me and my husband to a row where we could have the middle one open. Another flight attendant was so pleasant and friendly, without being in the least intrusive, and so was one of the flight crew who I by chance exchanged a few pleasantries with. The food was reasonably good, although oddly leaning a little too heavily on the carbohydrate side. The WiFi actually worked, and the entertainment offered not bad. I liked that there were a few off-the-beaten-track choices in movies and TV documentaries."
Cons: "What I didn't like was after booking a ticket, then calling before my round trip to see if I could make a change of one day for the return. I was quoted a price of $4,870 to change two $300 tickets. I opted to not change and expressed my dismay at this preposterous fee to change. Her best suggestion was to check again after the trip out (Denver to Heathrow). I did, on Friday April 13th, when I called Lufthansa (it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United) I was told it was a mere $600 to change 2 $300 tickets. Again my husband and I decided not to do this. Yet, when we arrived at Heathrow for our return trip, we couldn't get our boarding passes because they said we were too early for our flight tomorrow. Somehow they'd changed it after we declined to make the change! We were able to get it changed back and get on the flight, but got not a word of apology or explanation. Still waiting to see if any kind of charge shows up we will have to dispute. Not at all happy with Lufthansa for this."

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

Pros: "all smooth"

Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "None"

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

Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"

Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."

Pros: "The flight length and capacity was fine. Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "The plane was outdated, the entertainment was a screen smaller than my phone and had only set movies or shows that played in repeat. Apparently you could download their app and watch other stuff but we weren't informed of that at all while waiting to board which would have been sensible (when there was Wi-Fi access). For a long flight, that would have been nice. They also made a big scene about the bathrooms, apparently us in economy didn't pay enough to use the bathrooms in front of the thin blue curtain that wasn't really closed. It was a bit weird, they're just crappy bathrooms regardless of where they are on the plane."

Pros: "bad movie choices"

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

Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"

Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."

Pros: "We were told that if we boarded quickly we might be able to leave early. That was motivating."
Cons: "In-flight service was a bit spotty. But crew was courteous and professional when it really mattered."

Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"

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

Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"

Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."

Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"

Pros: "overall very pleasant and relaxing food good able to sleep due to luckily extra space! very pleased"

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

Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"

Pros: "New plane, friendly flight attendants, quick meal and drink service and we arrived a bit early. Nice job overall."

Pros: "The crew were excellent and receptive to needs on the flight."
Cons: "Baggage Claim was a nightmare. I did not receive a baggage ticket when I checked my bag in London. Part of that is my fault. I should have made sure I had one. It took an extra long time to get my bag. Everyone else had left the area from my flight and I approached the counter. The attendant at the counter was rude. She said she couldn't help me unless I had the baggage claim ticket. Which I get that, but it all comes down to how she said it to me. She went over to the carousel and said that my flights bags were still going around and at that time I saw my bag. I said there it is to her and she responds, well you can go get it yourself then. Just completely rude. It all came down to how she responded to me. I was freaking out at the prospect of my bag being lost and she responded as clipped and uncompassionately as possible."

Pros: "At boarding there were delays which the boarding personnel updated as they had information. After boarding flight crew passed out water while we waited on the tarmac for hours while a maintenance issue was reviewed. Safety protocols that had a engine issue looked at on the ground prior to putting us in the air. Curry chicken was good."
Cons: "Several issues that caused this flight to be late. Part of the issue was the plane was not available to be in the gate on time. The longest delay was on the tarmac for over 2 hours as an engine was analyzed. Does this suggest need for more regular maintenance? I don't know. Given the delays I think United could have done more in recognition of the delay to its customers on the flight such as not charging for some of the services they normally charge for like wifi access and such. As it was I was delayed on both legs of my trip by a minimum of an hour. United should do better."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, the complimentary wine and beer, the service, the movies!"
Cons: "The flights was delayed, but it worked OK for our schedule this time."

Cons: "I understand sometimes there are problems with gates once a plane lands, but an hour on the tarmac waiting to get into a gate is ridiculous. Pay up to have gates available for your aircraft. We have choices when flying. If you disrespect the customer's time, we take our business elsewhere. Also, having the customer do everything from tagging our baggage and automated check-in at the airport should reflect in the price we pay for a flight. Instead, you make us do all the work and keep prices the same."

Pros: "The people at the gate were very friendly and helped ensure we made the plane although we were late because of a misunderstanding of the boarding times. The original itinerary was booked through Kayak for Lufthansa months ago. The flight was 10:25 and boarding time was 9:50 up until the night before the flight. The crew members made a remark while we boarded as if it was because we went to the duty free. It was not because of the duty free visit and would have liked to tell the flight attendant to keep that remark to herself or wait until she was in private with her coworkers. It's a matter of professionalism if she wasn't going to confront me personally."
Cons: "Plane was old. The overhead compartments kept opening upon takeoff and landing. Although passengers were able to close them, they would just open again. This posed a safety concern to the passengers near the compartments. (3 compartment doors that I know of opened). The TV screens were unsatisfactory for an international flight greater than 5 hours. The food was disgusting and competitor airlines offer a much better selection for international flights. Would not consider United for an international flight based on this experience despite price."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, instead of a direct flight back, we had to go to Munich and then fly to LA"

Pros: "At gate, staff generously gave me priority boarding because I'm pregnant."
Cons: "We couldn't access the inflight entertainment because we didn't have the United App and you can't download it once the flight has started (flight was operated by United)."

Pros: "The plane was almost empty so I took a 3 seat and layed down to sleep. There is not entertainment or reading material so there is nothing else to do. The crew was exceptional in all ways."
Cons: "There is not entertainment or reading material so there is nothing else to do. It would have been miserable if the flight was full."

Pros: "United now has small mattresses to put on your lay flat bed in business class. Very comfortable! For once they had my first choice for lunch and it was delicious."
Cons: "The seats are lay flat beds. However they are very narrow especially where the feet are resting. If you are over 5ft10 it's too short a bed. You feel that your feet are pressed together when you sleep. Also no seat level storage space. Seats are narrow and are almost impossible to sleep in resting on your side. Would suggest united try out the Emirates airline business class seats on the A380. The British Airways business class seats and New Zealand business class lay flat seats are also much nicer."

Pros: "The flight was fine. Trouble is, it's not a Luthansa flight, it's a United Airlines flight. That's not clear when you book, and the reservation shows up with the confirmation number on the Luthansa site. We had to call them to find that the flight was actually United when we went to book the boarding pass. It didn't flag the flight as united...it would look up and find the reservation, then the web site would simply hang when we tried to print the boarding pass. That's poor customer service to say the least. I get that the Star Alliance and other partnerships are eroding brand, but this should have been listed as United."

Pros: "Choice of entertainment was great."
Cons: "The system kept malfunctioning repeatedly, and had to be restarted by both the flight attendants, as well as myself (I had to keep turning it off and on and restarting movies)"
