Cons: "Small seats. Uncomfortable. Limited and expensive food."

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("

Pros: "Good communication between once we had to re route for technical difficulty and united gave us 100$ coupon to fly with them again after our trip changed from 9hrs to 18 hrs"
Cons: "No TVs, no charger points, not a lot of knee space/leg room, not enough luggage storage at back of plane, can’t sleep in isle seat due to people constantly bumping into you while walking by"

Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."

Pros: "It ended up being united not Lufthansa and they were delayed 45 minutes so they rerouted me through Munich which made me miss a free bus to my destination outside of Rome"
Cons: "More time in Chicago in case of a delay I only missed my flight by 5 minutes"

Pros: "efficient and communicative"
Cons: "Not necessarily United's problem, but I feel like the design of the seating could be more efficient. The 3 or 4 in a row seats can be super problematic if you have to use the bathroom and need to climb over a stranger to do it and they're asleep/3 times your size. Holding for 5 hours is not fun."

Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"

Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Free snacks and tv and charging sockets"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly.. a little delayed but that's ok..."
Cons: "These days, to get these kinds of "First class" doesn't seem so first class for the price. Lower the price or up your first class game..."

Pros: "We paid for extra leg room but did not receive it. Our complaint to the staff was dismissed without a care. We will be taking our business to Alaska Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"

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."

Pros: "Nonstop is the greatest."

Pros: "Uncomfortable"
Cons: "A few more inches of seating"

Cons: "More room for your knees"

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."

Pros: "Very friendly flight crew. Lots of smiles and personal touches."

Pros: "I was in first class and talked some w/ the pilot during our massive and enjoyed that. But not the almost 3 hr wait. The lunch, a choice of brisket or spinach ravioli - I took the pasta - was quite good. Amazing for an airline now known for service. The wine was also pretty good."
Cons: "The wait, the wait and the wait. Economy passengers - my friend Tanya was in econ - got not much during the wait. At least she had the whole row 38 D-E to herself. I sent her the cheese plate from my meal. Even though the crew kept us informed, it was too little and too late. When I asked the Captain when the missing part blew off he had no answer. Not impressive..."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "Quality of food (snack) was just not good."

Pros: "The male flight attendant was friendly. The boarding personnel were friendly and apologetic for needing to check our carry ons."
Cons: "seats are so uncomfortable. no space."

Pros: "Friendly and courteous servive."
Cons: "No entertainment and very uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Comfortable, clean, friendlier staff and newer planes than United."
Cons: "Snacks - pretzels? Fresh baby carrots would have been better, or apples & PB. Purchase food options are not healthy."

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."

Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"

Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."

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

Pros: "Our flight home was Great. At kona airport the flight crew was Amazing, the captain even let my daughter set in the driver seat, which is something she will never forget."
Cons: "Downside there was no onboard t.v.s which makes 4 hours seem long."

Pros: "I wish I remembered their names, but I have never had more friendly and engaging flight attendants. It made the flight a very enjoyable one!"
Cons: "Food & entertainment options were lacking."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "The staff were friendly and the movie choices were good"
Cons: "The seats were pretty tight and there were only pretzel snacks"

Pros: "There were no positives to this flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. The crew stood at the airport gate for a good hour chatting with each other completely disregarding the fact they had a plane full of people around them waiting to board. They were drinking coffee taking selfies it was ridiculous."

Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and sat next to someone who was real sick.Should make sick people wear a mask.I got sick the next day."

Cons: "When did a garment bag become a third luggage. Terrible company"

Pros: "Nice flight crew served Illy coffee as a delightful beverage surprise Overnight flight was smooth and restful On-time departure and early arrival exceeded our expectations"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "No one let the children on their flight. Should have never been able to be booked on this site in the first place. Thanks. We just lost 600!!! Never using again"

Pros: "Kind staff."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable. Unbelievable for an overseas flight. Hard plastic commuter plane seats meant for short flights."

Cons: "Late start"

Cons: "The plane had mechanical issues. they flew the plane that had mechanical issues to a Honolulu. spent eight hours in a Honolulu. had to catch a redeye to San Francisco. 12 hour layover caused us to have to pay for a rental car to get to our final destination Of Reno. I would hope that there would be some sort of compensation."

Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."

Pros: "Clean new aircraft, flight attendants pleasant"
Cons: "Bare bones, no entertainment system, beverages offered once in 5 hours, water once. Narrow seats with lots of neighbors elbows."

Pros: "Pilot and flight attendant communication"
Cons: "Seats too close. No food available for last 10 rows of plane. Way too long of a flight for there to be limited food availability."

Pros: "UAL gate agents were nice."
Cons: "TSA precheck still funnels in with non-precheck passengers and I had to take out my laptop even with precheck. Not efficient."

Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."

Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."

Pros: "Super Bowl Perks!!! & great service tight"
Cons: "As usual with all flights, tight seating"

Pros: "Snacks were good. Flight attendants were friendly."
