Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat was comfort, good attention, flight on timing 😇"
Cons: "In several times the plane went down and up, and I think the pilot had no experience or it was the first time flying"
Pros: "seat was comfortable"
Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"
Cons: "Latam Airlines has the worst service for the fare paid. We were charged for two carry on bags while other passengers with same bags didn’t have to pay. Crew gave us stupid explanations to justify charging us like you are in the boarding group 7 which we never asked to be placed. It’s the airline business to choose some passengers to charge $100000 Colombian pesos for getting bags, and then after being forced to pay for the bags crew doesn’t give a receipt so we wouldn’t have proof of the fraude. Charging for bags is at discretion of crew. When buying the tickets for me and my family I checked the policy about luggage and the website doesn’t state about being charged for getting regular size bags like ours."

When trying to cancel I was hung up or disconnected from 6 times. Each time calling back with 10-15 of wait time. Finally got through and was told it's non refundable. Why kayak even deals with companies like this I have no idea. I finally cancelled and I'm still getting emails aasking how my flight was."

Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs.

Pros: "lousy crew"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Cons: "Delayed 2+ hours"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "Stop pretending I can take a carry on. I'm boarding last, and guaranteed I'm going to have to check my carry-on."
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: "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: "Good plane good entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Attendants could not put could together. I bought business ckass tickets to my daughter and her husbandfie their honeymoon. They could not use the business lounge: when they arrived they were told that they needed to wait in front of the boarding gate. They waited two hours asking many times why they could not get their seats. They were ordered to stand by and wait to be called. Finally they insisted and they got two sits but not side by side. It was too late to use the business class lounge. What a shame. Food was so basic. Noodles overcooked with few veggies that all. Cabin attendants we're stressed and rude"
Pros: "Great crew, food was good"
Cons: "Still need updated seating for room and comfort"
Pros: "It was great that there were several empty seats so I could stretch out on the overnight flight."
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: "There was plenty of room because I upgraded to 1st class. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My tv didn't work for the first 20 mins of the flight and had to be reset. They only had one of the drinks I wanted. I would have thought being that it was around lunchtime they would have served more than a bag of chips or banana. In coach, you get a bag of pretzels and/ or a cookie sometimes. American Airlines provides warm nuts and a fresh baked cookie and I had to pay more for the upgrade than I did on American for a longer flight."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The team did their best to get everyone boarded quickly and make up time for the delayed flight. Even the captain was doing what he could within safety limits."
Cons: "The TV would not change channels or turn off. It was very distracting on my night time flight. And maybe it's just when you're trying to sleep, but there just seemed to be less personal space than I remember on other recent flights."
Cons: "We never made this flight. United texted us multiple new gates confusing us. We stood at customer service for almost 3 hours never able to talk to an agent. Had to go to a desk to figure it out. It was still messed up in Dallas. Two in my party almost didn't make it to Cancun this day."
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: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "The employees work good."
Cons: "No food for almost 6 hour fly, no tv."

Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"
Cons: "Sitting on tha runway in LA for one hour"
Cons: "I left an important notebook on the back of the seat that was in front of me; I was assigned a seat on the rouse 8. Can you do something to get it back to me please?"
Pros: "The price was right! For a one way ticket in the summer I can't complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, friendly. Captain kept us infirmed"
Cons: "Both legs of the flight were delayed for 1-2 hrs."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very tight. Entertainment depends on bringing your own ipad or laptop and using the United system. Movies tended to be oldies. Food is 10 pretzels. Count them."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Cons: "since I am short, the neck portion of the seat is uncomfortable."
Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Pros: "Getting to distination early."
Cons: "United customer service is cold."
Cons: "Multiple long delays."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed due to late incoming plane. This made me miss my connection. I was put on a different airline (which I hate) only to arrive 7 hours later than expected."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Had us planeside check our roller bags but had at least 4 overhead bins around us that ended up being empty. They then took a substantial amount of time to unload the plane side checked bags. I was toward the rear of the plane and still had to wait."
Cons: "A 6:30 pm flight that leaves at 8:15? What is there to like?"
Pros: "Delayed bc of weather."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "I guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "I did not like that the check in in Mexico started late. They took a while to start boarding the plane. I do not like that United now charges for luggage. Mine was small. I did not like that the seats were uconfortable. I am short and there is not much leg room. There was no entertainment. When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "United has squeezed its Economy class customers into seats that are tolerable only for the shortest. If I were an inch or so taller, I would have found the space intolerable. As it was, my knees were against the seat in front. For a flight as long as this one (over 5 hours from Anchorage to Denver), it was uncomfortable to say the least. The middle of the plane was nearly empty, because United charges $75 per seat for an upgrade. For the round-trip for two of us, that would have added $300 to our bill. The fact that so few are willing to pay the upgrade fee indicates that the increment is too large."
Cons: "90 minute delay!!!"
Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "delay arrival delay for gate lost luggage"
Cons: "The airplane was freezing, and I'm 23 years old and very used to flying."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "The last seats were really uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't like that I missed this flight because your first one was late"
