Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy.

Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"

Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."

Pros: "nil"

Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No wifi"

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

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

Cons: "The WiFi did not work the entire flight (4 hours from Chicago to Seattle) and despite passengers inquiring multiple times, we were never informed whether to expect it to start working or not. Streaming TV was also poor quality on the United app."

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

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I have no complaints!"

Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was directed to Chicago nonstop flight"
Cons: "Washrooms"

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: "On time departure & arrival"

Pros: "Plenty of snack and drink service"
Cons: "Rude service / inflight entertainment is terrible and also WiFi wasn’t working for half the flight / overhead bin space was lacking and only fit one bag per row. I can’t emphasize how terrible the service was on the flight there and back. they simply do not care."

Pros: "Pleasant flight crew and comfy seats, even in coach."

Pros: "They did allow myself and children to board earlier 5/4."

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"

Pros: "boarding and landing excellent time."

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

Pros: "Legitimately, nothing was liked."
Cons: "My plane broke, worked multiple mechanicals, returned to the gate, my severely delayed departure caused all my connections to be missed thus creating more compounded issues. HUGE HUGE headache. Almost forgot, I'm still missing my luggage 2 whole days later."

Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Entertainment worked for 20 min on a 5 hr flight with a 1.5 hr delay."

Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."

Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."

Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "The plane wasn't very clean. And I might have liked another option besides a weird trail mix for a snack."

Cons: "Seats are too close."

Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."

Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Economy is very cramped"

Cons: "flight was late due to unavailable equipment no peanuts for those of us who must have gluten-free snacks"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious place were awesome :) The snack was very good, the best I had so far while flying. Service was great :)"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was 4th group to get in the plane, all the space above my seat was full and I had to go put my carry-on quite further down. It didn't cause me any problem because my connection flight had a long layover, but if had not been, I could have been late."

Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Old plane- lots of noises/raddles. Flight attendant not especially friendly, but that's ok? Wish United went direct from Louisville to Ft Myers. Need to add trip to Frequent Flyer Account"

Pros: "Ease of travel, friendly crew and snack on flight."
Cons: "Bumpy from weather, just thankful we made it safely."

Pros: "Easily the best flight of our entire trip. Airplanes was nicer so the others couldn't help that but the crew was outstanding on this flight. All of them were amazing! Kindness is what the world needs and all three were wonderful. The comfort was also the best on this plane. This was the first time flying with United."
Cons: "Problem was after the flight. My luggage was lost. This was the first trip with United so I'm not sure about the future. This was the first time my luggage has ever been misplaced."

Pros: "Always the service is above and beyond"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."

Pros: "service was great"

Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence for the 1st hour of flight"

Pros: "The piolets and staff were kimd"
Cons: "The airline kept delaying and canceling the flights with little to no notification, resulting in people missing work, connecting flights, and other important situations. there weren't many employees working at the airport to assist the people who were in unfortunate situations involving the flight, including myself. Overall it was a poor experience flying with United airlines, but that won't stop me from future planning."
