Cons: "if I remember correctly the screen size was a little small for a new plane. Also I asked for two alcohol drinks, but was told only one may be served. I only asked so I wouldn't have to get up during my movie, and on Air New Zealand, they freely offer more than one drink. Also, if I remember correctly the arm rests did not raise all the way. We had all three seats to ourselves, and it would have been nice to lift the armrests all the way up so we could stretch out properly."

Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."

Cons: "The plane (A330) was parked at outer parking position away from the terminal building. They kept us waiting inside the bus for almost 30min with barely working AC at 40+ degC. Once the bus arrived to the plane embarking was done via roofless staircase."
Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."
Cons: "Again pyjama on business class will have equalised Qatar business class.Well done,otherwise,Etihad."
Pros: "The crew was easily the WORST I have dealt with. Both on the flight to Abu Dhabi and to NYC. They were rude, unhelpful and extremely arrogant. A co passenger was chatting with one of them and she happened to mention that working with people was the worst ever. She’s been with Etihad for 5 years!!!"

Cons: "Entertainment, comfort"
Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."
Cons: "The main meal was ok but that was it. If you can't do food to a standard them dint do it at all. A piece of fruit would have been better"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "All of the above"
Pros: "services are good. flight is on time."

Pros: "Clean aircrafts, average leg space and nothing less in services then what you get from other airlines as well."

Pros: "great plane, comfort, crew"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."
Pros: "Flight was 5hours late, how can it be good!!!"
Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."
Pros: "Never flying with Etihad before, but it really impressed me with its roomy aircraft, friendly crew, well-rounded and creative e-entertainment and fine food for its amazingly affordable price. I was somehow selected by the airplane for an upgrade flying to Bangkok which even elevate all of my experiences above. A great layover program definitely recommended!!!"
Cons: "Flight attendants in the economy class could be more attentive and walk around more frequently to check up passengers needs and passing out waters. Need more care to the food sanitation especially open water because I had later diarrhea after drinking it. Could be more organized for lining up different seating zones onto the flight, also seat arrangement is a bit off because bothe times I was asked to switch seats for couples and families w kids."
Cons: "Crews attitudes + the long flight"
Cons: "Small seats-space limited."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con"
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"

Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."
Pros: "The flight was very quiet so I was able to lie down and get a good rest - I know this isn’t possible on every flight but it made the long flight a lot more comfortable. All of the crew members were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good and tasty (lamb curry I think it was) - best plane food that I’ve ever had. Good choice of new movies too."
Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"

Pros: "It is an overrated company. Does not desrve its fake reputation."
Cons: "The seats never recline. All the 4 leg seats had reclining ossue"
Pros: "The seats on the flight were TREMENDOUSLY uncomfortable. As a 6’1” tall, male, I truly felt like a sardine in a can on the flight. And, for a 7-hrs flight, the food made available, I did not find to be sufficient."
Pros: "I purchased a premium seat, and I still felt as though I was being packed into a sardine can. Furthermore, the online seat map used to purchase my preferred seat did not match the seating arrangement of the actual aircraft, which was TREMENDOUSLY disappointing."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "We got the extended leg room seat we asked for, but next time I will be a bit more particular about its position. The problem was we were right behind the Business/Economy partition, which a) limited our stowage and b) it was a passageway for passengers getting from on aisle to the other."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Although a late take off we managed to arrive 3 minutes early!"
Cons: "Nothing, keep up the good service!"

Cons: "My seat and table were dirty and sticky. We had a 45 min delay. I was seated in the middle of the plane and received my meal lady and of course had no more meal choice available since they had run out . For the snack I also was given a different meal than my seat neighbor"
Cons: "Ordered special meal, did not get it so did not eat. Cabin crew unfriendly. Old aircraft so could not hear the announcements. Screen did not work. Bags took ages to come out despite being priority. BA has definitely gone downhill."
Pros: "Selection of films was good"

Cons: "Departure time"
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Pros: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Cons: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Cons: "More staff needed at security clearance"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Pros: "Fast boarding with group number priority"
Cons: "No complementary rescteshments. You had to pay and only pay by card."

Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "Good service, good flight, all on time."
Pros: "Comfort of the journey, take off and landing were expertly done, approach was just the right speed and contact was soft but firm. Crew were pleasant enough. One of them felt he always had to show his authority with a firm voice, not necessary but maybe that’s how he speaks. In general no problems"

Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Pros: "Selection of movies and stewardes."
Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."

Cons: "Was delayed"
Cons: "Most passengers had to pay for any food even water. No plugs at the seats."
Pros: "we took off and we landed"
Cons: "Checkmytrip kept giving different information about the flight. once on board with delay first officer said they would try to make up time. Soon it was all about air traffic control. said that FlightConnections would be working on flights for this with missed connections. not true - nothing done while we were flying, and landed"
Pros: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."
Cons: "I paid extra charge for Seat 29C. It was not provided though requested several times. After a hot argument this was provided. Crew were not co-operative. Flight was delayed by three hours. Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."

Cons: "Nothing could have been better."
Pros: "Flight was onetime, food on the flight was for purchase but it was vert nice, boarding was onetime and smooth."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant, with great service. The in-flight entertainment selection was good, food was tasty. The day we flew, this flight was maybe half-full in coach, which may not be great for BA, but fantastic for leg room! The attendants were lovely, and I particularly enjoyed the continuous water service through the flight, which kept me nicely hydrated. The ice-cream mid-way through movietime was a welcome treat!"
Cons: "mybroken seat"
Pros: "The landig was the best I have ever experienced in 20 years of travels, I was then informed that the pilot was a woman :) great to see more female pilots around"
Pros: "Good flight no complaints"
Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"
Pros: "Great crew. Modern plane, excellent legroom with a payment of €100. I’m 194cm and could barely reach seat in front with my feet. Food very good, Bathrooms downstairs large and always was available. Entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "That the flight wasn't any longer than it was"
Cons: "A bit hot n stuffy"
Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."
Pros: "Came close to missing flight because of gate delay because of connecting flight, but one of the flight attendants saw I was flustered and sweaty and gave me a cup of water before the flight even took off. Very thoughtful and nice."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
Cons: "So it was annoying that the seat that was assigned to me..airline assigned that seat to someone else because that person asked for it. And nobody bothered to ask me( no email or call or anything) even though there were lot of empty seats. But the passenger was polite he moved to his original seat."
Pros: "Generally flight was ok."
Cons: "Food was not too much. Probably men was hungry, for me it did not taste good."

Pros: "Nice quick flight staff great and very helpful!"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t free"
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: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Pros: "Helpful crew and loads of space on bulkhead with bassinet (had to pay extra for the seats though but worth it when travelling with five month old)."
Cons: "Misinformed about luggage being checked all the way to Auckland - like other US airports all luggage must be collected and handed over again for onward journeys. Also travel cot was lost in transit."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Flight was switched to United airlines so the confirmation number did not work and we could not check in on line. Food was the worst I have had on a flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"

Pros: "Unable to since they did not wait for several passengers."
Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On this particular flight for some reason the crew served food before drinks."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Comfortable as well. Courteous and attentive crew."
Cons: "The food was awful if you didn't like curry or cheese (my husband and son didn't eat and it was a 9 hour flight). The landing was aborted after the wheels were on the ground. We came down way too fast and hard, and had to take off again and ascend very quickly. Circled an additional 25 mins before landing again."
Pros: "New flight reservation took us directly from Newark to Phoenix."
Cons: "This flight was totally cancelled. New reservation took us to Newark. Here the crowds were very long, baggage took over 20 min. to arrive, missed our connecting flight and had to wait 4 more hours for next flight. The flight out of Newark was held on the tarmac for 40 min."
Cons: "Unprofessional rude United staff"
Pros: "Crew were fabulous with my children, 2 and 5 years old."
Cons: "Not enough room on jetway to collapse and open stroller. My kids almost got trampled as I was doing this even though they stood still against the wall!"
Cons: "Wait time for US specific security check Line was too long and slow"
Pros: "The food and the attention of the crew was excellent I saw three movies in this long trip"
Cons: "I am not happy with the service of the Counter in Munich. I had my seats reserved in march when I bought the tickets and the employee without my autorization, changed my seats and my wife and me traveled separed. The position in my seat 2D was terrible. Everybody walk in the aisle and touch me several times. It is better to travel to Europe in European Airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment variety and selection. Food and Drink. Had the curry chicken, surprisingly good."
Cons: "Not enough food & drink service. On an 11 hour flight went 4 hours without a visit from food/drink cart. On the flight from Houston to Munich the food was lousy but we got several more visits/opportunities for drinks."
Cons: "The boarding process."
Pros: "We got home safely."
Cons: "We couldn’t arrange seats in advance online; there was much confusion since it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United. There was no one from United to talk to at the Hamburg Airport, and multiple Lufthansa agents said they had no control over the United flights, and could not contact them either. We weren’t able to get food at the Munich airport because we had to go through a second passport control just before the gate, and there was no food. The automatic snack machine only took Euro coins and not bills or credit cards. Then the crew was a little snippy and unfriendly. Not a great experience overall."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! thank you!"
Cons: "The screens are outdated and don't respond properly to touch, old movies, old games, no live-news (available at other airlines - e.g. LH)."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Cons: "worst food ever internationally. And I've been to 43 countries. crackers as snack, only one meal on an 11 hr flight, ran out of fizzy water, for sandwich, I had to take off one layer of bread to taste the meat at all (thinest layer ever seen with only two dots of a pesto."
Pros: "Food was really good and I watched some great movies. I was happy to see that there is much more room on Int'l flights than domestic flights. The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I was pulled out of line when trying to board at the gate for not having a 'stamp' on my boarding pass which would tell them I went through security (even though I had gone through three levels of security!) I was sent back to a gate that had no idea what I was talking about and I became frantic, as my son was about to board a flight that I could not. I finally found what was needed (after being sent through the line and patted down this time!) and I ran back to the gate to be the last person on the plane. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Also my son's video touch screen was not working properly. I realize that it is hard to keep these operating well, with all the use they get, but it was annoying as this happened on the flight over as well."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and seating arrangement. Lots of storage places. Ample water supplies."
Cons: "Would have preferred something other than chicken for pre-landing meal. Fruit, cheese & veggie option shown on menu was not available."
Cons: "We waited in line to check baggage because it was Lufthansa and got to the front before finding out it was a united flight. No where did it say United check in. Just aggravating."
Cons: "However flight from Athens to Munich sucked. Charged for carry on at check in , even thou others before boarding were checked there’s for free since flight was full. If that was the case I should of gotten mine free. Wish United would drop Lufthansa airlines."
Pros: "The flight was actually with United not Lufthansa."
Cons: "It was like they changed our Lufthansa flight to United. I was not able to get our seat until the last minute at the counter. Luckily the crew was good and helpful atherwise I could not even sit with my husband. My chair was broken so I had to sit very straight. The screen was very tiny like only half size of the one on Luthansa flight. The food was only so so as well but that was just my personal taste."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Pros: "Highly professional and exceptionally courteous service by the cabin crew. Professionally dressed. Organized and dilligent. Customer friendly. The way an airline owner and CEO would want to be represented to the paying customer by a frontline segment of his/her organization. Best UAL/Lufthansa experience ever for me."
Cons: "The ‘third world’ arrival handling by IAD. Ragged transporters. No intercom service or effort whatsoever to advise pax of apparent problem at main terminal. Turned off transporter engine and left us on the tarmac breathing diminishing air in the module and wondering what was going on. Mobile passport service ‘not working’ at jam-packed immigration. Luggage retrieval frustrated by problems or incompetence and finally located at an undesignated conveyor area. No kudos to IAD. All kudos to Lufthansa/UAL. One Exception was my ‘by chance’ immigration agent who for the first time ever for me at IAD said “welcome home” as he waved me on."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Pros: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
