Pros: "Loved it"
Cons: "Sit was a little tight"
Pros: "Decent seats. Good amenities for a long flight - entertainment, pack with toothbrush/mask/earplugs/socks."
Pros: "Yes, Crew was amazing and timing was perfect."
Cons: "Excellent performance"
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew attentive, cabin quiet, seats comfortable, rest rooms clean."
Cons: "Hot food was luke warm, portions skimpy."
Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"
Cons: "The new Q suites in business are GREAT!"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Food is becoming predictable Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."
Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"
Cons: "No HE"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "Very old flight"
Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."
Cons: "So the seats while comfy are not as nice as the seats now on the reframed United Polaris and Delta and Air France in their newer planes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "On time departures Good entertainment options Could charge my electronics"
Cons: "Food was ok Boarding was somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the bathrooms there was only one type of tissue paper beside the toilet paper. Adding a thicker paper towel like most airlines do would be better so that passengers can clean up any water splashes as soft tissue is not effective for this."
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The plane was wel kept and crew was very pleasant. Food was good and service was best I have had in economy class."
Cons: "Only complaint is crew would wake you for very frequent snacks and meals . Minor deal. Crew was great"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Enjoyed the personal attention and charming personality of the flight crew!"
Cons: "Can't think of any!"
Pros: "Comfort, entertainment, amenities"
Cons: "You have to improve the food service. The food tasted horrible. You have to circulate the beverage cart more often."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."
Cons: "This flight was an older carrier and although it had a USB outlet to charge your devices it didn't work."
Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."
Pros: "upgrade flight"
Cons: "Poor quality food"
Cons: "Less uncourteous flyers"
Pros: "The seats were suprisingly comfortable for economy class and I am over 6 feet tall"
Pros: "Very smooth flying and timely takeoff and landing"
Cons: "WiFi had trouble. Had to be restarted. Not a huge problem."
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "It was nice to have a meal and complimentary drinks."
Cons: "it was a 20 minute trip, it was fine and easy"
Cons: "Make the movies free 7.99 is ridiculous Also no vegetarian meals is completely unacceptable!"
Pros: "Rum punch and boarding was gread"
Cons: "I would have liked to purchase a Leo Hawaii experience in on the Maui end"
Pros: "It was on time leaving OGG and landing at SFO. Our luggage was delivered intact."
Cons: "Once at the gate, we had to wait ~20 minutes for it to become available. Did they not know we were coming?"
Pros: "I like the crew, they were so sweet as always!"
Cons: "As is an issue with all Hawaiian Airlines flights, there is no fan/ temperature control option and I tend to feel motion sick if I don’t have cool air blowing towards me. It also helps me feel less trapped. But, all was fine because it wasn’t a full flight and I didn’t have someone sitting next to me."
Pros: "Service Food Chocolate Clean Aircraft"
Pros: "I like biking through kayak. I just wished they could warm u.s but too book a1 way flight to NZ because your wasting money."
Cons: "I booked a 1 day trip not realizing I could only book a round trip tick to get in new Zealand. I almost missed my flight and had to book another 1 way trip.. wasting over $100 dollars. That ruined my flight exp."
Pros: "Crew and flight were great!"
Cons: "It took forever to unload the luggage in Oakland, and it was very disorganized. People on the flight were sent to Carousel 3, and later told to move to Carouse 4. Our son had circle the airport for almost an hour to pick us up!"
Cons: "Luggage not transferred to this flight. Delayed leaving airport timely to file missing luggage report. Delay meant we had to upgrade car rental because unit originally reserved was rented to another party who was able to timely get luggage and rent car with no delay. Note, did finally receive luggage about 5 hours later, came in on next flight from mai to Kauai."
Pros: "Staff was able to correct the seating assignment when the plane was changed causing the seat assignment to change. Flight was great!"
Cons: "The lunch food could be better on our return flight it was wasted and most guests threw it away after two bits. :/"
Pros: "USB charging station. Hot meals."
Cons: "To pay for movies. Boarding announcements initially confusing . Plz note Sailors are not allowed to wear uniform even on official travel."
Cons: "Do not like their zone loading technique."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment options"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than those on the long flight from LAX to OGG."
Cons: "Checked bag didn’t make the connection."
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "Friendly crew Fast boarding"
Pros: "Thank you to the crew for serving us a drink, even though the flight is very short."
Pros: "Short flight connection"
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort kits, and drinks were thoughtful. Staff extremely friendly. Food was better than most domestic airlines. Seats were large enough for comfortability during a long flight. Seats against walls still recline."
Cons: "Can't pick seats online for international flights, so we're stuck with whatever is leftover. Planes not particularly clean; lots of crevices with years of debris."
Pros: "Free rum punch"
Cons: "Food option is lousy - instead of sandwiches, just give me some fruit or vegetables or hard boiled eggs. And the entertainment options are mostly paid - terrible for kids. We had children screaming on the whole flight and this might have been helped if you offered free kids selections on the entertainment. Even Delta and Alaska offer free entertainment. And I was surprised there was no Wifi either."
Pros: "nice crew, clean plane, free meal."
Cons: "no wifi, and not communicated in advance. made it seem like we'd selected our economy seats in advance when really, we'd only "requested" those seats, and didn't sit together. this was misleading at time of booking and very frustrating. no wifi + no free entertainment = mildy frustration."
Pros: "I liked the atmosphere, food, and attentiveness of the crew. It was great to also be able to track our trip and charge devices in flight."
Cons: "The seatbelt sign was on the majority of the flight and the captain was not quick to turn it off when it was clear the turbulence was over."
Pros: "I love that Hawaiian still gives you a meal for free."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the in-flight entertainment was pretty lame."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, very warm and welcoming. Best flight I've had in a long time. I'm definitely going to only fly Hawaiian air to Hawaii from now on."
Pros: "No A/C while on the ground and it got very very hot waiting to take off. Then no entertainment or power supple for the entire flight. I had heard many good things about this airline before, but NONE were fulfilled. Won't fly again or recommend. They could have at least offered so compensation or at least a couple of drinks."
Cons: "The wait time at baggage claim was 40 minutes, longer than the flight time from Maui to Honolulu! Inexcusable, especially since the baggage from a later OGG- HNL flight arrived sooner than our delayed flight."
Pros: "The food offered was tasty enough"
Cons: "The chair was the worst one I've experienced this far in an airplane."
Cons: "No entertainment. Flight from OGG to HNL is only 30 minutes"
Pros: "FOOD AND DRINK SERVICE"
Pros: "Clean comfortable plane , great service , and free food ?!?!! Not expecting anything like this , thought I was put in first class"
Pros: "Seat upgrade (to comfort class), very friendly flight attendant, decent food / hot meal"
Cons: "Rude personnel at gate"
Pros: "everyhing seeme o g smoothly. th service was good and I enjoyed h business class. on trp ck to sfo, i agin ttrVELLED BUSNESS class. Unfortunately there was a crying baby 4 seats over. it cried for over 2 hours and I felt sorry or the eole who had paid for first class tickets to be so disturbed. Baby not HGawaiian's fault but wis they would put all young fhildre together in bak of play. or have flights that exclude children under 2 yars old."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. Some crew memebets very nice others not. All in all it was an okay experience. I don't usually complain but there were a few things that seemed a little off about the service. Not expecting anything special but a little kindness and thoughfullness when possible is appreciated."
Cons: "No food option for vegetarians on flight. Crew member said I may have had an option when I booked the ticket but if I didn't want chicken I should just not eat. I would hope they would have a few extra vegetarian meals on hand for passengers who may stupidly and mistakenly not selected that during booking.. The touch screens are poor quality, not a huge deal but frustrating to have to tap so many times. With most of the extra comfort seats around me empty I was not allowed to move to one of them from my economy seat. Not asking for extra service but it seems like it should be fine to move if there are completely empty rows all around. Not sure if the crew members are not allowed to give extra treatment to passengers or what."
Pros: "Thank you for the beverage service, and in flight meal and snack. Totally appreciated. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were sandwiched in like sardines. I will never get used to that. Hawaii to Oakland is a long flight to sit with no room. We had to buy entertainment, which we did not do."
Pros: "The crew was great in helping us try to make our connecting flight after we realized we might miss it. They helped us tag our gate-checked stroller (which we had to ditch) and let us off the plane first. And the pilot notified the ground crew at our connecting flight too. Thank you, we made the flight!"
Cons: "The 1 hr delay in OGG caused us to nearly miss our connecting flight in SEA."
Pros: "Loved the customer service all the way. All of the employees were very attentive and were genuinely interested in helping everyone."
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like. I really liked everything."
Pros: "Hot dinner and wine were provided free of charge. The plane was a 767 which is probably the best plane out there. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Typical of Hawaiian Air, the seats are quite close together. But on this flight, we seemed to be OK."
Pros: "It was nice they came around with drinks and snacks quickly and had food for us too."
Cons: "They made an announcement to sell the Tablet rental for $15 and you'll have it 20 mins into the flight versus if you get on the plane for $17 and it would be 2 hrs later. But that was not the case. The Tablet was available right away the same time I got my tablet, which I paid pre-board. so I don't like to be "Lied" to."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Pros: "Great flight, crew and plane!"
Cons: "I paid for an expensive ticket to get back home relaxed and on time for my sister's birthday and to have time to prepare for my new job on Monday. We ended up having 6 hour delay arriving at 1 am. This added so much stress that I lost all the energy I absorbed in Maui. I missed my sister's birthday, we ended up having to eat at ogg twice, we lost our ride and had to take a taxi home. I need my money back."
Pros: "Nothing- 4 hour delay on the Tarmac and they did nothing to advocate for us getting off the plane or keeping us updated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, engaged, helpful"
Cons: "In-flight food still needs some work."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and I liked that they still serve an actual meal. They offered one free alcohol drink and came through the aisles often to offer drinks, snacks or meals."
Cons: "The plane was pretty old. All 4 of our seats were broken in some fashion. There was no entertainment on board even though they had a video screens - and these are 5+ hour flights. They charged an extra $15 for an iPad mini that you pre-loaded movies. Would have been better to watch a movie on a regular sized iPad but even better to have not been charged."
Pros: "THE RIDE WAS EXCELLENT"
Cons: "The cost of the flight, was a little more, just to go to another, island. I think it should be more reasonable."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean aircraft, on time departure."
Cons: "Entertainment system."
Cons: "Enjoyed it very much. Great crew and clean plane!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the bula plus seats are worth the money."
Cons: "The entertainment on board is very dated and doesn’t have that much to choose from."
Cons: "The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "LAX has to get its remodeling completed. Getting to Tom Bradley International terminal and taking the bus to our plane was not impressive. The food on Fiji Air is not good."
Pros: "Fantastic service from check in until arrival."
Cons: "More up to date movies"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great on board hospitality"
Cons: "Boarding in Nadi international airport for Fiji airways is boarding the passengers from the back of the aircraft first which was different for me"
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More leg room and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Some crew members are excellent and some are flat."
Cons: "Food is kind of bad"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seats in a business class were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It’s hard to compare after my recent flight on Emirates which was superb."
Pros: "Trip , food etc"
Cons: "Delays on flights"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."
Cons: "with 39 passengers on a 60 persons flight the following annoncement came up: we need 5 volunteers or we leave 524kg of baggage we have to leave here. Than the locals started to bribe the personel... we have no idea if and when our stuff arrives..."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Audio for in flight entertainment did not work midway through the movie. Video was unclear. Food was terrible."
Cons: "planes seats dirty chewing gums stuck on seats talking of entertainment not everyone will prefer to watch what is being played there arw children and elderly thats needs to be considered"
Pros: "well refer below"
Cons: "plane seats were dirty had crumbs on it seats had chewing gum stick on it movie how can u expect everyone to watch same movie there are children wlderly no respect to what they like"
Pros: "Superb customer service It was my first time using Fiji Airways along with my children. We usually fly AirNZ or Emirates because they have everything I need. Now we have added a third airline to our list. My kids are also fussy with the airlines we use. But they really enjoyed their flight with Fiji airways."
Cons: "Food was average and I could not put my seat back slightly."
Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"
Cons: "No information around delayed flight. There were 4 delays.."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"
Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Plane seems dated"
Pros: "Nike complaints good food everything was on time"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Good flight. The curry chicken was spicy, but good. Concerns on weight totals for luggage for checked (50 lbs) and carry-on bag (15 lbs). Never weighed either bag. Was prepared though just in case they did weigh, as we’d read about $150 overweight surcharge."
Pros: "Boarding was chaotic. No microphone, so couldn’t hear rows being called. Passengers were pushing to get onboard. No numbers, rows, etc being used. Nice airport."
Cons: "We were in the last row on the plane for some reason that was not explained....Parts of plane fell on our heads..Not enough room to lower the tray table...Wedged into seat like sardines...Entertainment was the sounds of toilets flushing...We paid a fortune for first half of flight from LAX to Nadi that was excellent...The second leg of trip to Auckland was a HUGE NIGHTMARE that won't be forgotten....Shirley and Ron Richard"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
Pros: "By far the best flight attendents. Friendly, sincere and happy - the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the food. It badly needs a revamp."
Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled which ruined the trip for myself and seven friends."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"
Pros: "Airline stays rooted in its culture. The interior, uniforms, and ambience all give way to the Fiji island culture. They also give a small pillow and blanket in every seat."
Cons: "I wish the seats were a bit wider and had more legroom. But overall the airline is on average for space and I have flown in more uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Comfort of "quiet zone" seating which was an extra $149 per person."
Cons: "Check in clerk and Manager were not very helpful. Check in was a nightmare with no organization for preferred flyers. Boarding was also disorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"
Pros: "Crew is very nice & welcoming"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which I understand happens. However they stayed the new flight time was 6:05pm. We didn't take off until at least another hour after that. Minimum entertainment options - approx 30 movies all together and most were older. Food was not good. Small seats with very little leg too"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."
Cons: "Same as above comment. Plus something needs to change about bringing water bottles on to the plane from Fiji airport. It's just dumb to put people on a flight for 10+ hours with no water. Not happy with this experience."
Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."
Cons: "Missed the flight! I find it ridiculous you do not get a "Check In Online" email from Fiji Airways if you do not book directly through them. That, to me, is insane. All Fiji Airways passengers, whether they booked directly or not, should get that email."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised plenty of legroom and the service was great. Good value and would definitely fly with them again"
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Got us to Nadi safely."
Cons: "We had a banana from LAX airport and intended to eat it on the 13-hour overnight flight. Unfortunately we forgot about it. The customs at Nadi found it on X-ray and slapped us with FJ$400 fine! One of the Fijian bio security officer told us that "by handing out big fines, we hope the airlines will remind passengers of biosecurity rules...". But Fijian airways failed to do that. $400 fine is a horrible start of your vacation and we will never come back to visit Fiji. We will also advise all our friends not to visit Fiji on facebook."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "The food. The crew can be a little friendlier. They don't seem too happy to work for the company."
Pros: "Food was great!! Flight attendants provided excellent service. Entertainment was really good, and the plane looked pretty new."
Cons: "There was barely enough room for everyones stuff in the overhead containers. Because of the location of my seat (aisle, just when the number of seats oer row changes) I got bumped on my shoulder quite frequently."
Pros: "Service food were good"
Cons: "Plane broke down upon arrival. New plane. Had to be flown in from Fiji. Caused a full day delay in return travel."
Cons: "Check in was going smoothly until the lady questioned our carry one, which we had used through your our journey. We felt singled out for no reason and after jumping through hoops and complying to pay for extra weight, the lady said, it's ok, and that she was sorry. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "The planes were clean. The flight attendants were mostly friendly."
Cons: "For an international flight, I would have expected to have a little more room even though I was in economy class. The food was OK. The limitations on checked baggage and carry-ons were not very good. 40 lbs for a checked bag, ok. But only one allowed. I've never had an airline, let alone international, that weighed my carry-on. All in all, it wasn't what I'd expect from an international flight."
It would have been nice to have a pillow and a blanket. food was not great
Pros: "It’s been a while since I have flown United, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great the crew on both of my flights were. I flew basic economy and was treated better and had as much leg room as with “upgraded service” from another carrier with an American name. After this experience I’ll go out of my way to book on United. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Bad baggage claim info"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Nice and clean than past old metal."
Cons: "Close captioning or English subtitling didn’t work with the app."
Pros: "Crew was great seats are small"
Cons: "Bigger seats! Very good overall"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "The plane was a newer one with a bit more leg room."
Cons: "The snack was lousy - a very small pack of pretzels. For example, I’ve been on United flights when they gave us maple crisp cookies that were delicious. You would think for a five hour flight they could give you better snack! Drink service was very good."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Almost full flight. By the time the food cart reached the back if the plane, it was damn near empty (nothing decent to eat)."
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: "Rudest employees ever and a serious incident. Never flying United again"
Cons: "In flight entertainment was a phone/tablet holder in the headrest. This would have been okay except it required to have the United app installed on the devices which my kids did not have set up. The seats were tight and uncomfortable, plus the flight was completely full."
Pros: "Haven't flown United, now we remember why. Paid extra for comfort and the seats we had were actually more cramped than those around our seating. A long trip with no food, unless you want to pay more than a high end restaurant in Maui. No entertainment made a long, uncomfortable flight unbearable."
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
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: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Pros: "Friendly attendants and a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight and poor food choice"
Cons: "Old plane, very hot cabin, no WiFi, no food, entertainment system would freeze and was glitchy. Awful airline now. Very disappointing."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight. Good food."
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."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, we were in first class. United provided a good selection of recent movies."
Cons: "United stewardesses have little to no interest in their duties. Questions were clearly an annoyance to them. The leg of flight from Denver to Des Moines was very uncomfortable, seats much to tigh, no leg room. Gate staff in Denver were exceptional. United needs to revisit their time for loading. We preloaded, I had a broken leg, I was traveling with a special needs woman. We just reached our seats when other passengers were prodding us to sit so they could board no time to settle. Not impressed"
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"
Pros: "Check in excellent, staff at airport very professional."
Cons: "No negative issues"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Customer svc was able assist us so we can all sit together since our original seats we were all separate."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their jobs/duties."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Sexy eyes on that one"
Pros: "Lots of space and please take attendants"
Cons: "I didn’t have the vegan meal I ordered however they did give me a replacement"
Cons: "Paying for TV when first flight let Us watch app on our iPad for free. Also - lackluster food choices."
Pros: "Enjoyed watching DIRECTV and sleeping"
Pros: "4 hour 15 min."
Cons: "Bring your own entertainment"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Very clean. Decent room in economy plus. On board food is expensive but tastes ok. Free soft drinks served a couple of times during the flight (4.5 hours)"
Cons: "No in seat screen for movies. Only if you had your own personal device e.g. iPad. Also access was not working consistently across the plane. Was told that only a certain a certain number of seats could access the in flight entertainment system at one time and "to keep trying" and "hopefully someone will drop off soon". In the end they acknowledged the issue and told all passengers to go online for compensation which they honored immediately."
Pros: "Good fare"
Cons: "Flight attendant chided me for not reading menu beforehand. On one of the flights I had to shout out to thrm to even get a drink since they didnt stop at my seat. No space for a bag on the aisle seat on the 777."
Pros: "Spacious seating with no one next to me"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Economy Plus saves a bit New plane"
Cons: "VERY narrow seats Stupid buttons in the arm rest, constant beeping from people pushing them by mistake"
Cons: "The United agent at the gate in Maui was terribly rude. She didn't even acknowledge that I was waiting in line to be helped for about 5 minutes. She went on the plane to check something for me and didn't return until 10 minutes later. When she came back to the counter, where I was still waiting, she started to talk to her coworker about chocolate and how great the crew was. She then turned to me and said, "can I help you?" She didn't even remember that she was in the middle of helping me! When I reminded her she was like "oh that's right" but didn't even apologize. The flight was delayed 2 hours which was pretty annoying too."
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Lights were dimmed in the cabin"
Cons: "So many things. My complaints wouldn't change this company's plans. It's clear what United values"
Pros: "The seats we're ok"
Cons: "Delayed, bad service, bad boarding technique, bad cabin crew, and when we landed we spent another 30min taxiing and sitting. My connector flight was delayed two hours and by time I got to San Diego my rental car company was already closed."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "The seats in first class were ok, not wonderful. Too expensive for only 'okay'."
Cons: "never flying united."
Cons: "I came up with some pretty bad bruising on my stomach from the seat belt during the landing."
Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "I sat next to someone who basically took up half my seat which is the most uncomfortable way to spend a redeye. And an eight dollar fee for DirecTV is the silliest thing I've ever heard of for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Boarding was organized. When we wanted to check in our cabin baggage afraid that the overhead bins may be full by the time we board, we were properly guided that there is ample space, so there was no need to check them in. This saved us waiting time at LAX."
Cons: "We were not allowed to do online check-in because of codeshare, which was not very convenient."
Pros: "An eighty-five mile an hour tailwind got us from Los Angeles to Denver twenty-five minutes early. At LAX, our departure gate was only three gates from the arrival gate of our connecting flight, so no long trek through LAX. Seats on our 737-900 were tight and didn't recline far but, hey, United is the Wal-Mart of modern air travel. What do you expect?!"
