Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"

The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive to my needs. They met it with a smile."
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home!

Pros: "They did an upgrade to make it business class! It was a very nice surprise! Such great Emirates Airlines! The BEST as always!"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"

Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive.

Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "Everything during the flight was lovely"

In my opinion they should provide an excellent customer service, but everything I noticed there was unsatisfactory, I love to fly with Emirates but such things will make everyone disappointed."
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "I paid $190 for extra legroom for an economy seat by an exit door, however the remote for the entertainment screen encroached an inch on the already VERY narrow seats - I'm six foot three and 215 pounds and both hips were in full pressing contact against the sides of the seat - TOO NARROW!"

Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."

Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together.

On meals, forget the things that are impossible to to sustain in a fresh/tasty state, like melon, Tomatoes fried, certain types of sandwich where the bread absorbs any liquid/juice, overuse of rolls. The meals are tested under almost clinical conditions, who ever travels Economy and tastes the food in situ. Put more of the edible foood in. People prefer a single course meal as against a 3 course with dead ends on each side of the main."

Cons: "A great flight!!"
Pros: "Good seats, friendly staff, quick boarding."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and left early! Hold luggage arrived really quickly on conveyor belt."

Cons: "not aplicable"
Pros: "I loved the in flight service and entertainment. Also, the flight had seats that actually reclined and I was able to sleep."

Pros: "Good service, good flight, all on time."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "The smooth journey in the sky"
Cons: "The fact that BA flights even morning ones are always behind schedule"
Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Boarding OK, Seats very very comfortable. Enough space for my long legs"
Cons: "Coffee and tea were proposed, but have to be paid. I would understand for alcohol, but for tea and coffee, as a customer I felt a bit insulted"
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Why do they do this job if they hate dealing with the passengers? They act as if we are a burden to them."
Pros: "Tight in ecomony. Aisle seats are bad I was hit the entire flight."
Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "I enjoyed all of the amenities provided on this flight, the service and food was great and I got to enjoy 3 new movies I'd been meaning to see."
Cons: "No complaints here! It was a great way to start off our vacation."
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."
Pros: "personnel extremely courteous, helpful and looked like they enjoyed their vocstion."
Cons: "not being able to check bags thru entire trip from gerneva thru London to lax. had to travel thru customs etc to get backs and then travel to terminal 2 from terminal, awful experience. made connecting flight by 15 minutes."
Pros: "Meal was delicious"
Cons: "Flight delayed by rain - normal. Very little communication. Old plane with antiquated technology. Flight was extremely warm."
Pros: "Impressed by the staff again, they’re yet to disappoint. Food was good too."

Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and accommodating for passengers"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Nice efficient crew"
Cons: "Announcements on plane very loud sometimes"
Pros: "Timing of flight. Gate not too distant at Gatwick.."
Cons: "The check in and seat allocation process is awful. Boarding was chaotic with passengers still standing as we rolled back (quite sensibly the pilot did not want to miss the slot). Sitting around rows 19/20 means that even on an a two hour flight, you risk attendants never reaching you with the trolley."
Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "British airways have always been good and my best airline to fly."
Cons: "This occasion, the manager was So rude to me and even called me a liar in front of too many people. I don't speak or understand French and the woman really embarrassed my life. I checked-in online before I got to the airport and I mistakenly went to terminal 1 instead of terminal 2. So by the time I realised and got to terminal one, the baggage collection stand had closed because I was there by 15:18. To make the long story short, I got through the security where I was delayed for 20mins searching through my things and when I asked about time, the security said the flight won't leave with out me and they would inform them about the delay before I get to my departure gate. Anyway, I got to the gate with some time left and this extremely rude woman whom I was told is the manager insulted the living day light out of my life and turned me back. So I didn't fly with BA in the end. No matter the situation and despite me being late, I believe things would have been handled better. And even if the manager felt I was lying, she should have been more diplomatic about it and speak to me in a good manner. I won't be recommending flying BA from Nice to anyone. That woman was so hurrible, that experience haunts me psychologically."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I did not order food I liked the new safety Videos"
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"
Pros: "Was not able to check in for the flight on the ba.com. Called BA on the phone - no help. Person in the Geneva airport - unprofessional, unhelpful, had to go to another agent to get seat assignment. British Airlines - disappointing."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
Pros: "Thanks for bringing us water when my husband needed to take some medication, some airlines won’t do that."
Cons: "Excessively busy at DIA, seemed under staffed, lines stretching across the airport."
Cons: "Long haul airlines across Atlantic charging people for drinks and food on flights !! Best call yourself as cheap budget airlines and stop the pretence . Would be useful if this information was shared at booking plus “drip cost feeding” policy is appalling! Frequent traveller and have never seen such an appalling behaviour on long haul airlines"
Pros: "Crew was friendly & attentive."
Cons: "Food, lunch"
Pros: "Food was delicious!!"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Good seat pitch in economy. Food and beverages included and tasted good surprisingly. Crew were helpful and efficient. Plenty of entertainment options for film, TV and music."
Cons: "Do not like the process of boarding by group number. Another way of squeezing money out of the consumer. Also causes chaos when trying to board. Seats too narrow in economy especially if your broad shouldered."
Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight. Ended up being ticketed with a different itenerary with 11 hrs layover in Dulles washington. Had to spend my own money to hotel and taxi. And just few hrs when I finally arrived to my final destination, i had to work since I didnt have anymore sick time or vacation time. Very exhausted. Its was a night shift 12 hrs duty."
Pros: "I only rated Good because the flight was not too crowded and I got 3 seats to myself. Your seats are tiny and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Beautiful views of the mountains."
Cons: "Was delayed for hours and missed my shuttle to Bellingham. Nearly ruined my trip."

Cons: "A bit hot n stuffy"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "CCheck in process was horrible I only had a small bag which fit under the seat and yet I could not check in online or at the kiosk without somebody coming out to certify that my bag was indeed small very stupid and very cumbersome. I’ve been a United flyer for 30 years and this is the worst experien"
Pros: "The crew were great but the inability to elevate your legs for such a long journey wasn’t too comfortable"
Cons: "The ability to elevate your legs"
Pros: "great crew, easy flight"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "seat awful, legroom awful, crowded overhead bins, jammed with people"
Cons: "Wifi did not work well."
Cons: "Flight departed late"
Pros: "The seats were super comfy, the flight was practically empty so I had an entire row of seats to myself! The complimentary movies & entertainment is awesome and kept me from getting fidgety during the long 8 hour direct flight. I honestly didn't even feel like I was on an airplane."
Cons: "Nothing, this was a perfect flight!"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Cons: "My suitcase handle was broken"
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Flight was switched to United airlines so the confirmation number did not work and we could not check in on line. Food was the worst I have had on a flight."
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: "Great attitude and a genuine love of their job made pass / crew interactions very pleasant"
Pros: "The bed, pillows and blanket, the flight attendants and the captain, who was on his final flight after 30 years."
Cons: "The dry chicken"
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."
Pros: "Not much to like. The flight was okay."
Cons: "Not having free Wi-Fi and sound on the entertainment.I We could have been offered complimentary snacks as well with the beverage."
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Pros: "Got home without delays. As satisfactory as possible in economy class."
Cons: "Much better flight back than going to switzerland"
Pros: "Flight crew from Geneva was nice"
Cons: "The pilot held the Geneva flight for 35 minutes for late arriving inbound passengers. This helped them but hurt far more passengers connecting in Washington DC. We missed our flight and waited in standby mode all evening for a Denver flight."
Pros: "On time, plane in relatively good shape."
Cons: "The entertainment system is of low quality and kept freezing and needing reboot. It is almost impossible to hear the movie sounds. Somehow the food served was truly disgusting, like an horrible TV dinner. United always stands out on international flight for having the worst dinner served. Always take your own lunch with you! Finally it has been my consistent experience on United that the stewardesses are really unfriendly. They do their job just fine but do they look so miserable compared to other companies. Do the airline treat them real bad?"
Pros: "Excellent food and service"
Cons: "Cabin very cold."
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Cons: "Not atypical of this airline and flight, we sat on the tarmac for 1 hr 45 minutes after boarding for a repair."
Pros: "Comfortable seating Temperature was good Flight crew kept us informed and were friendly when we deplaned Food was good. Nice people at check in"
Cons: "I think the flight attendants were not very friendly. When they were thanked they did not respond at all. I saw one roll her eyes at someone in front of me when turning to head back to the galley They fulfilled my requests quickly but were rather blaaaaah. And one in particular mocked me in front of the other attendants in the galley when I engaged in a little small talk. This particular woman prompted me to take the time to write all of this"
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Security was overzealous. I didn't know the standards changed for how many ounces you could carry over three days. The normal ounces of liquid was no more than 4.0 ounces. I had no problem going through security with that amount of spray deodorant flying from IAW, Dulles. DFW airport security says the limit is no more than 3.4 ounces. So they kept my harmless deodorant. I need TSA to get on the same sheet of music worldwide. People don't have time or money to waste having to deal with different TSA standards everywhere they go."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were extremely pleasant. Food was pretty good and not too plentiful. Nice way to come back to USA after three weeks abroad."
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."
Cons: "We missed the flight."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Cons: "Minimal and rushed service due to holiday shortage of flight attendants should be compensated. Otherwise a good flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
