Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entertainment in plan .. airport facilities"
Cons: "Staff in chick in only no staff .. staff in plan ignoring most of passengers except the rude passenger to stop fighting"
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Service on plane good friendly staff and helpfull"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Service on the plan was excellent. Food was delicious"
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: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
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: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "So so"
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "food courtesy boarding"
Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."

Pros: "The attendants are friendly, helpful and responded to my needs graciously. I also love the uniforms, especially the hats. The food was decent and was offered at appropriate intervals. I like the plane too."
Cons: "I had reserved an aisle seat by phone but at the airport I was assigned a window seat. No problem---the attendants were helpful and a nice man changed seats with me. I had difficulty with the headset, couldn't get it comfortable and had difficulty adjusting the volume. No big problem considering how good the service was in general. I didn't like a 6 hour wait at Kennedy on my flight to Milan which was dreadfully late."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "nice plane , good crew, on time,"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets way over 6 months in advance for our honey moon and they did not sit us together on our 8 hr flight to milan. I always hear how people get complimentary upgrades in such a situation. Apparently not for us."

Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Pros: "I was unable to board the flight so there is nothing to talk about."
Cons: "Provide options for accommodation, refund or alternate flights after announcing a 24-hour delay.

Not the level of service expected from an international airline."

Pros: "Was good but the food was bad"
Pros: "The overall service is great for the airfare price I paid. Can’t complaint! The new plane with central air control was a great idea; it was comfortable for the duration of the ride. That being said, I would definitely use Cathay Pacific again in the future for this price range."

Cons: "Everything is fine"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all.

Cons: "No audio/video entertainment."
Cons: "Simply excellent service"
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."

"Canceled my trip never flew. They were rude and uninformed. Caused me grief wanting another covid test even though I had one plus I am vaccinated. No excuse. They should have had a test station by their ticketing counter. Had to hunt for transportation which was very difficult since it was 10 pm. Rented car for 350 to get home. I would think twice before booking through Kayak and with BA. kayak should have had more assistance and not just sell the ticket. Both receive an F ."

Pros: "Nothing particularly"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight attendant throws the tray of food all over me. Never apologize Worst flight ever I'm a Gold Frequent Flyer. No more!!! Good Bye British Airways Hello Cathay Pacific!"
Pros: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Cons: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"

Cons: "Ancient, filthy plane, rude personnel, awful food, and probably the worst boarding experience for premium travellers imaginable at Nairobi airport"
Pros: "Service, clean restroom, courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."
Cons: "No breakfast on out bound leg"
Cons: "Don’t do it!! Totally disorganized airline with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful"
Pros: "My upgrade."

Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Pros: "The new flight procedures informational film at the beginning of the flight (BA/Comic Relief)"
Cons: "The flight was to Heathrow which was not prepared to accept us at all. We waited 45 minutes in passport control. I expect BA to make sure the port of destination is prepared to receive its passengers"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "Everything. Thank you and keep up the great work"
Cons: "My seat was broken."
Pros: "Upgraded to world traveler plus was way more comfortable. The flight crew were so so nice and helpful. I am handicapped and they just couldn't do enough to make me comfortable."

Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Cons: "No food selection. No vegan meal that i ordered for my daughter."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Cons: "BA cancelled the flight, did not reroute us, provided a phone number for tel aviv (closed for the weekend). Terrible customer service. And our ticket was bought thru vayama who also did not bother to help us. Bad bad customer service for BA."
Cons: "boarding with bus instead of sleeve"
Pros: "Security staff was rude in England and our suitcases was lost And they did not even let us know"
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The anarchy boarding process. The lack of plugs on the flight. The 2-year-old lap child in the seat with his Mom next to me that kicked, threw, fussed, hit, cried and more through most of the 8-hour flight because somehow a child that big doesn't need his own seat. The lousy, lousy food. The lack of food. The seats that were so tight I couldn't get up to use the lavatory when the inconsiderate woman in front of me put her seat back (and I'm totally average size). The awful entertainment selection. The worn, dirty plane."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Cons: "I received no information from British Airways! Luckily someone saw that all flights on BA had been canceled. This is the second time this has happened with British Airways. They have zero customer service and terrible communication."
"The flight from Madrid to NYC was operated by American airlines,it took them a while to figure it out that I'm on flight number 095,it was really frustrated and a lot of pressure for me.finally a wonderful lady figure it out and helped me to go on the flight back home to NYC."
"Service and kindness of crew could be improved substantially!!"
Cons: "The suitcase did not zrrive"
Cons: "The people working on the land side lack of a complete sense of service. They are rude, unrespectful and with no professionalism. It is a shame that the last impression you get from Israel is the aggressiveness."
Cons: "The airline accepted our checked baggage, although they already knew that it would not make it to our final destination (Marrakech) on the same day that we would arrive. We had to pay, out of our own pockets, for the inconvenience. Apparently this happens a lot, and it happened to our entire plane"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, new plan, nice crew"
Cons: "Wi-fi did not work"
Cons: "It should have departed on time. It departed 50 minutes later than the original time."

Cons: "It would’ve been better to receive our luggage on time. We have to wait an extra day even though we had to pay 100 Euros to check our bags."
Cons: "Toilets were REALLY dirty"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous. USB charger"
Cons: "2 hr delay. Auxiliary battery crashed. Mediocre food. Poor wine. Limited entertainment"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work. Seats were ridiculously small but it got me to Paris safe and sound, and that’s what matters most."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "Thw crew were amezing, with a lot of patient. The entertainment was graet. The seats were graet.7;"
Cons: "Pedí que me manden la factura del vuelo y no me a llegado nunca."
Pros: "Volar con Iberia es sencillo y particularmente buena atención."
Cons: "No hay distraccion ni almimentacion,. El vuelo era largo de 2:45 h y siendo iberia pense que seria mucho mejor que ineria express"
Cons: "We never made it to this part of our flight because our Budapest to Madrid flight was canceled due to faulty AC system. We were boarded In Budapest and about two hours later they made as deplane after sitting in the hot plane for two hours. It was around 10 PM and no food was available at the airport, so I could not feed my four-year-old son ."
Pros: "Saving grace: movie selection much better than expected. Food a bit better than expected (in the world of airline food). Crew capable & nice enough. We got to our destination on time, so at least there’s that."
Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."
Pros: "Staff was very nice There was a medical emergency that deleted our deplaning Passagers were concered regarding their connection The medical staff was still on board when we deplayed"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on line Had difficulty in getting a contact phone who dismissed my concerns Just said show up two hours before Good thing I went earlier since Ben Gurion has long lines for security before one gets to the ticket counter"
Cons: "My checked baggage was not trasnferred and did not arrive in Chicago."
Cons: "No WiFi on a 10 hour flight!"
Cons: "Krew. Comfort srat . Space."

Cons: "Could not do online check-in."

Cons: "At the airport in Rome, I wasn't able to take on my carry on bag, when it was within limits. I was upset because many had the same size and had it with them. I was concerned with valuables inside, but thankfully all arrived OK."
Cons: "I was Given different seat at boarding into less comfortable place - no explanation."
Pros: "Seats in the first flight were very tight"
Cons: "No space for the legs!"
Pros: "This was a good flight with good service and a nice crew. It was especially nice to have actual silverware to use for the meal."
Cons: "Changing terminals in New Yory was challenging because the route was not clearly marked. They did not honor the on-line boarding passes, so I had to go to the counter to reprint the boarding passes and then go through security again. I also would have preferred a clean blanket once I got on board. The flight attendants seemed hesitant to speak to me in Spanish, which I speak pretty well and they also seemd uncomfortable talking to me in English, which is my native tongue. This made it hard to interact with them in my normal good natured way."
Pros: "Seats were too crowded. No leg room."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had to wait in the Madrid airport for seven hours before getting a new flight and retrieving my luggage (five for the new booking, 2 for luggage). It's understandable that flights get cancelled due to weather, but the handling of re-accomodations should be much faster. Iberia did not have enough people to handle it and made no effort to bring in more help. Instead, workers were continually leaving. By the end, there were only two people helping the line of dozens of stranded travelers. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to weather. BA could not rebook me to get me to Seville in time for my meetings."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. I paid for a seat only to get bumped to the very back of the plane. I waited in line for 30 plus minutes to talk to a gate agent who just ignored everyone in line. Their service is worse than United. You get what you pay for. I will never fly with these clowns again. And I want my $33 back for the seat I didn't get!!!!!"
Cons: "Puse un reclamo pues me cobraron 150€ por un perrito de soporte médico y no me han respondido al respecto."
Pros: "The flight was ok."
Cons: "Ok. I was so rushed from my connection I got sick. My bag was left in Madrid."
Pros: "Flight from tel aviv to Madrid was awful. Bathroom was dirty and no hand soap. Ordere d a special meal and never came. It was so cramped you couldn't move. I was betwee 2 tall men who placed there legs under my seat. No direction for connection flight."
Cons: "My connection flight to use was better on americal"
Pros: "Again, the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "This time, we didn't start boarding until *after* the scheduled departure time."
Pros: "Crew were really nice and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment, I can't believe how close the seats are to each other. I'm not a very tall person and my knees were hitting the front seat constantly (and the kness of the passenger seating behind me of course)"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Staff was not very accommodating. Plane air-conditioning did not work well and then as very hot"
Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "Take-off and landing was timely."
Cons: "Really disappointed with a lack of service. On the 8 hour flight we had one meal service within an hour of take-off and one within an hour of landing. No water or checks or anything for almost 6 straight hours, unlike my prior flight. I had to finally get up and ask for water. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Iberia is not good at boarding"
Cons: "First leg of flight, the most uncomfortable seats. I had literally no leg room. Will never fly them again. Second leg different aircraft, much newer. Happier crew better food. But still won't fly them again because of the first leg. It was unacceptable"
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I think the Brie cheese I ate made me sick afterward. I wish the staff had brought water around more."
Pros: "I got a connection in Madrid to my destination, but the previous flight was delayed about 30 minutes. I got in the airport about 15 min before the gate closed. The gate that i arrived to my connection flight was around 26 min away. I have a condition on my leg and i cannot run, so i walked really fast through the airport and I was so happy to see that they were waiting for my delayed flight... which is very unusual. Thank you!!!!"
Pros: "Choice of entertainment: movies, tv shows, etc."
Cons: "Wifi was >$50!"
Pros: "Boarding on time."
Cons: "Entertainment- not a good selection of movies. In one of the flights there was no entertainment at all. Food and drinks in that flight was served late. I thought they should serve drinks more frequently."
Pros: "Madrid airport is seriously beautiful Flight departed on time Seats was lie flat and comfortable Food was best of any European business class"

Cons: "No Masks really enforced"
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "A horrific, frustrating and humiliating experience at the Tel Aviv airport. United airlines did not inform me about the security process for transit passengers. I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."

Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."
Cons: "There's no Premium Economy cabin. The Economy Plus seats are as narrow as regular economy seats. The food is fairly basic, and many other airlines serve better."

Cons: "food was terrible"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."

Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Super small aircraft so suitcases didn't fit. Didn't have food options, just pretzels."
Cons: "I called about changing my travel dates to later dates and they wanted $200, each direction, to change them. That's more than it cost to buy the later tickets, outright. In other words, the message from United is: "How about we keep your money *and* we fly someone else in your seat (because we overbook)?". Okay... how about I never fly on your airline, again."
Cons: "It was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "Staff person resolved Issue quickly"
Cons: "Boarding pass From DCA-DEN did not scan. Flight attendant asked me while seated if I was JENNIFER DICKSON"
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"

Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"

Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "Friendly staff, and an informative pilot."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."
Pros: "Entertainment great. Boarding efficient."
Cons: "Again my seat was changed to a middle seat even though I chose window. From this flight all the way through Burbank I thought all employees were slightly rude and unhappy and unfriendly."
Cons: "The food was terrible"
Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Service, look like you have to purchase everything from food to entretaiment."
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Pros: "That i finally arrived at my destination"
Cons: "The flight was immorally delayed by 1.5hrs. then by another half an hour. Then there were issues with boarding, which delayed us more. Then the plane was put in a holding pattern (just circling in the area) because there was too much traffic at Seattle. I understand there are many factors that affect flights, but the entire experience today left me feeling really down and disappointed, and unfortunately, annoyed."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Cons: "Food was not great. Crew was not so friendly."
