Pros: "Ground crew was especially helpful to my mother who could not speak English or Arabic, and had never flown before. She also had difficulty walking, so everyone assisted her in the airport and during her long connection in Doha."
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."

Cons: "Little bit congested."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable.

Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, they were aware of alternative meal requests, professional, comfortable temperature"
Cons: "When dropping my bag at check in counter, the employee at the counter asked, somewhat intrusively, what the extra fee I paid was for. When I told her it was for the Al Mourjan lounge in Doha, her facial response and attitude came across as judgemental, and was not appropriate"

Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Over all great"
Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"

Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."

Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"

Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "The service was great"

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was good, one little thing, just had to wait for crew member to respond to the bell."
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent."
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Nice and clean flight good crew"
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Crew was a little less cooperative than my usual Emirates experiences"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"
Cons: "Didn’t like behavior of Dubai airport’s staff. They were too rude and Newark wheelchairs helper were asking for too much tips. Are they allowed to ask for tips and speak rudely with senior citizens. Please give attention towards these problems"
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
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."
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
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: "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"
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
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."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
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."
Pros: "Cabin crew was courteous. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding we haphazard."
Cons: "Always spicy food"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."
Pros: "The service is the best."
Cons: "The seats on the Boing 777 don't compare to the seats on the Airbus from Dubai to Los Angeles."

Cons: "Food was not tasty or interesting."
Pros: "Service Gluten free food provided."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"
Cons: "In this flight the flight attendant thought she was doing us a favour,although seated in 26F,preference of food was finished,there was no Pepsi,and felt I was treated badly because of my color and dress mode."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "The crew was bery rude and not helpful at all. Worst airline we have ever used"
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Cons: "I had given preference of Asian vegetarian food on line but was not served the same"
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "The food and tv, and the staff is so helpful"
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."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Delhi to dbx was uncomfortable & they have changed our seat without any warning"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "Elegance in general"
Cons: "Nothing to complain"
Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"
Pros: "Like everything"
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer for abt 10 years but airline does not give any advantage to regular custoners. As per IATA in case if stay more than 8 hoursin transit they should provide complementary rooms to aged people atleast. Very POIR customer service"
Cons: "Airlune doesnot differentiate between firime customercand its own frequent flyers customers. I prefer other airliness for better customer service."
Pros: "Food is great"
Cons: "Service is good"
Pros: "The crew were nice, entertainment was very good"
Cons: "The Delhi staff were very rude, the baggage allowance was inconsistent in terms of inbound and outbound flights, was excessively charged!"
Cons: "Nothing, one of my best flights ever."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin"
Pros: "Seats were small."
Cons: "The boarding process was inefficient and long. The seats don’t recline and very little leg room."
Cons: "American airlines connections were terrible"
Pros: "seat was not comfortable as it was economy. staff was decent."
Cons: "friendlier staff, better food options"
Pros: "The flight attendant in our long flight, London to Hoiston, was extremely nice and took very good care of our section. The seats were not all that comfortable: you could feel there was minimal padding on mine and my partner's neck rest wouldn't stay up."
Cons: "We were shocked to learn there were no outlets on the long flight from London to Houston. Luckily we had a power bank, otherwise our phones would've been dead."
Cons: "Poor service overall."
Cons: "The food could have been a a bit better."
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "Yea the crew members were very polite and nice"
Cons: "There was no charging point in the plane in my returning flight so that was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "On time good service"
Cons: "Very cramped seats on old plane."
Cons: "Bit of delay."
Pros: "New plane and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food and drinks. No entertainment but very short flight."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "Seats not good for 5'10" and taller. Leg room cut short by box fixed under seat in front of me"
Pros: "Customer service in London extremely helpful"
Cons: "Left our bags in London"
Pros: "Food was ok and they were pretty generous with the alcohol which I needed since the guy in front of me had a seat which allowed him to lean almost all the way back. He ignored several of my comments and none of the staff had anything to say about this even though it was pretty obvious."
Cons: "Too cramped.The guy in front of me was laying in my lap the whole trip I have short legs and my legs were hitting the seat in front. Flight left late causing problem all along the way i.e. lost luggage for three days. Nobody was particularly helpful or knew what was going on. I had to make several calls just to have somebody find the luggage. We had to go all over the place just to find somebody to give us new connecting flights. The airport there is a disorganized mess which is beyond words. Nobody wanted to take responsibility for the loss between British air and Aer Lingus and my impression over the phone was that nobody cared one wit what happened."
Cons: "Traveling business class it felt as if I am traveling in city bus plane was so old seats were falling apart and above all the way ba staff most unfriendly people I was just imagining if this they do in business class what they must be doing in economy class I will not recommend any one to travel from Phoenix to Delhi on B A Jiten"
Pros: "Flight from Delhi got delayed thus missed connection to Montreal . Put on flight to JKF - Montreal , which didn’t made any sense as we live in USA . Thus requested to be placed on flight JFK- BTV. Then that flight was missed by 5-10 mins , plane was still attached to gait as we reach at gait & it was 2240 pm & flight time was 2250. So spend the night At airport floor with two kids & seven people total in party . No compensation was given at all . BA is the only carrier that charge money to pick up seat assignment in advance more 24 hrs ."
Cons: "Everything mentioned in above section ."
Cons: "my ticket was suspended for no reason, asked me get another ticket book , can't board, later a lady ( Sonam ) there in check in counter resolved. The check in Staff Mr. Gaurav at India airport was rude and over smart while talking to me, he pretended he was busy , but who is FREE in this world. Poor experience at the time of check in. and yes Thanks to Sonam who walked extra mile to talk to customer care of british airways and resolved for my ticket. Finally I could board. Even if ticket was suspended why it was not informed me to take any pro active action, why I had to wait in long queue to know that my ticket was suspende, IS IT NOT RESPONSIBILITY OF BA ???"
Pros: "There was one female stewardess who was extremely kind and helpful"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the back of the plane Bathrooms were FILTHY! Flight delayed by an hour Lost our luggage and then gave us the run-around about how we can get it back, when we would receive it, and did not compensate us for anything; ruined our weekend plans Extremely rude steward who, when we were upset about not having food behaved as if we should be grateful just to be in his company This flight was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect and appreciate about BA... Not sure I would ever endorse flying with them again..."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment system. Lounge at Heathrow airport served bad food. Bread had fungus in it. I pointed out to the staff there, and there reaction was "no big deal" !! There is such a big difference in"
Pros: "The room on plane to Heathrow, wouldn’t know about way back considering I had to rebook onto Air India..."
Cons: "Just the fact that BA decided to hold us in UK for 6 hours to get their full pay and the fact that Heathrow ground crew had not enough de icing equipment and resources were at an all time poor response. Three hour lines for checking on status of bags, status of flights, unable to book a hotel through BA and got nothing from them. I didn’t enjoy freezing and staying there in Heathrow freezing... plus I didn’t fly this flight home due to fears of them not being able to handle a coating of snow versus what loads of snow we recieve in the states. I had to take Air India home to the US AND HATED IT... thank you BA and especially Heathrow Number one for lack of response and total irresponsibility..."
Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."
Cons: "Got sick with the food I had on flight from Del to London and was puking through my next flight from Lon to Van"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Lost my bag. No idea where it was for 48 hours. Staff was ok. Ran out of meal options, took 4 asks to get a glass of wine and by the time I got it, I was done eating."
Pros: "Good price, got to check a bag included in my fare ( always nice when on vacation)"
Cons: "For short Hall flights: You have to pay for any drinks (even non-alcoholic) which is kind of a shock especially if your use to USA airlines."
Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."
Cons: "Online checkin wasn't working and the flight was oversold... After running through Heathrow after a delayed connection, we were told 5 min before the flight was scheduled to take off that it would be delayed. The coach seats were some of the smallest I've ever experienced (I fly 2x a month on average). The crew broke wheels off both of our roller bags."
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Movie selection"
Pros: "There were only two kind of entres, and both had possible allergenic items for someone allergic to nuts."
Cons: "I suggest either have three choices or whenever nuts are sugggested have one with, and another without."
Cons: "Misleading about food policy."
Pros: "The crew tried to keep me comfortable. Even though I was in a regular seat despite paying for a premium seat"
Cons: "When I reached the boarding gate, the attendant took my boarding pass as if he was checking something and changed my seat without asking me, issued me a new boarding pass... no explanation. I had a long flight to London from Delhi already so I was too tired to immediately realize what he had done. It only occurred to me when I boarded the flight. I had booked a premium seat in advance and had paid $175 extra for it. He basically moved me to a regular economy seat at the back without asking me or refunding me. That's fraud."
Pros: "787 is new. boarding was mostly efficient, although i was prevented from boarding even though there was nobody in queue due to some rules. food was good. entertainment was pretty complete. crew did well, but their command of english was not as good as one might expect."
Cons: "787 had issues with the window tinting. although it was a day flight, it felt like a night flight, with the expected effects on jet lag and fatigue. also, in premium economy, my seat was in the very last row, next to the toilet with no window, even though it is a window seat. to call a seat the 'window' seat, and then have no window is deceptive."
Pros: "Inflight crew was good and polite."
Cons: "Made me go in economy class que to enter the aircraft inspite of I having paid the 3 times more expensive business class ticket. Business class seats were too small and uncomfortable compared to the other airlines. Loos and facilities were not in accordance compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "The check in process from Prague to London to Dallas was inefficient. Too few agents, minimal direction from the representative guiding the line. Also, there were no food/beverage option unless you paid for them! No coffee etc on a 650a flight unless it was purchased. Ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight times and route are great - very early start but you are in Chania for lunchtime."
Cons: "Seats felt cramped. Staff helpful but seemed disinterested, and rather embarrassingly didn't know the name of the arrival airport. The much hyped M&S food was very uninspiring - my cheese sandwich was soggy, bland and slightly chemical tasting. There isn't the option for online check in from Chania to Heathrow, so ignore the error message you get when you try. I'd probably fly this route again but only for convenience not quality."
Pros: "Safe and punctual, good flight times"
Cons: "Preference given to passengers with large hand luggage to fill up the racks Being rushed to board, it makes passageners rude Paying for food - happy to pay more on my ticket as it's BA Cabin crew generally disengaged, not attentive. They could sell a lot more food and drink. They don't seem happy generally, I feel sorry for them. Paying for food in Ecomony"
Pros: "Individually the crew was quite nice and tried to do their best to their best."
Cons: "Dirty toilets. No toilet seat covers. Ran out of toilet paper. No oversight to basic hygiene given a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight. The staff were excellent, very professional, and were very helpful. When they heard about our plight at LHR Term. 5 when connecting to this flight, they were very considerate and offered to send in a report (still waiting for the result of this, no contact yet 6 days later). Again, the luggage space and lie-flat seats (Club World) and meals (except my gluten-free meal) were very good, as was entertainment and cleanliness of the plane and lavs. This flight was supposed to be delayed by two hours, but in the end, they managed to take off at the originally scheduled time. More good news: the flight was smooth and arrived on time and most importantly, safely. Luggage arrived quickly and in good condition on the carousel. BA is really good!"
Cons: "Lavs: Lavs were clean, which is always good, but there was no red/green availability lights on this aircraft, those would be helpful."
Pros: "Civility in the boarding process, bathroom cleanliness and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Poor entertainment system and choice. Some parts of the main cabin were dirty. As an asthmatic, I tend to be quite sensitive to dust etc. The age of the plane. Some of the flight attendants seemed not as friendly on request of some, not all, service."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time."
Cons: "No free alcoholic drinks. Seats are barely up to international standard - narrow, as is the aisle. Very poor quality food."
Cons: "They had me change my seat so couple could sit together. Then gave my special gluten free meal to the man sitting in my former seat. They never checked and I had to inform crew that I never got my special food. They did get me something to eat finely. I was not very happy. Kathleen M Quinn"
Pros: "Able to stretch out with empty seats and don't feel so much like a sardine in a can. When it's full, like the flight from Houston to London, it's misery and I remember why I hate flying. Flight left on time and arrived a little early. Crew were very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Old aircraft on sector"
Pros: "entertainment crew comfort"
Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Sold as a BA flight but it wasn't BA but Vueling a subsidiary of BA. This is in the small print and feels like a deliberate misleading statement. Far worse than other budget airlines like easy jet. Poor organisation and lack of staff with adequate training resulted in lack of information, long queues at check in and delays with take off and baggage collection. Practically queued for 2 hours. Make sure you arrive at least 2 30 hours before check in or you may miss your flight."
Pros: "Crew and food were great as always between LHR and CDG."
Cons: "No leg room in business class. Normal LHR air traffic control delays."
Pros: "On time. No issues"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "Single worst airline ever"
Pros: "Ground crew at VPS was very helpful during a long delay."
Cons: "Delayed ( four hours) because United, or whatever regional flyer they use, did not have a first officer to fly our plane to VPS. Of course, we missed the last flight back to Amarillo. Now, I’m missing a day of work. This flight is now costing me a fortune, as well."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats, we got some sleep."
Cons: "Delayed, but not announced all at once. People could have been put on other planes if the delay had been honestly announced"
Pros: "Clean, new, amplíe seats... in Economy!"
Cons: "45 min delay..."
Cons: "Very small screens, poor service when flight was delayed from boarding hostess"
Cons: "Cabin too cold"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Seats were comfy and roomy."
Cons: "There was only pay entertainment so that is why the low rating."
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Pros: "7 hours added to trip due to poor management of missed flight in Brussels"
Cons: "United needs to do a better job of dealing with missed flights. Missed flights happen, but over an hour in various lines because they couldn’t manage relations with Brussels Air, to say nothing of not realizing there was no chance of making the flight"
Pros: "The crew were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Small and cramped seats."
Pros: "Despite all the security checks, it was easy to board even in group 4. :)"
Cons: "Food was just mediocre. Would be nice to see a menu. They didn't offer slippers and the eye masks for the long flight. Comfort plus seats were spacious not really "comfortable:"
Cons: "The flight was about 9 hours delayed and I didn’t feel like anyone was trying to make up for it"
Cons: "Poor services and customer support"
Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "It took you 4 days for you to get back to me with the confirmation number after I had requested it via e-mail. Also, you should note Lufthansa-issued documents never commence with "220-" and then the subsequent numbers. Lufthansa tickets are always issued with "2220-" at the beginning and then the subsequent numbers. You need to update your computers otherwise with the original Lufthansa-issued ticket number you provide at time of booking, the booking will not show up in Lufthansa systems."
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."

Pros: "Flight crew on the plane were friendly and engaging, and the flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "Gate agent made a brief and vague statement that the flight would be delayed and offered no updates for about an hour and a half until the very minute boarding was starting. The United app and website never updated to reflect the delay, which made it difficult to coordinate pickup with family in Chicago."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good..."
Cons: "Baggage delayed for three days... had a terrible unnecessary painful stay at delhi,india.. claimed for compensation since July 19th, still on pending..."

Cons: "Tiniest, tightest seating ever - claustrophobic"

Cons: "It was a 15.5 hour flight, and food was served 14 hours apart! Could've served the second meal a bit earlier."
Pros: "Isle seat as empty but when i asked to move they told me i would have to pay over $100 and we were ready to take off so no one ever used the seat and i was smushed by the window the whole time."
Cons: "Air plane with mechanic problems and I buy firts class when they changed the fly don't give me the same class and can't take the refund"
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Pros: "The movie selection was great, upto date with great titles"
Cons: "Crew was surly, and acted like they were doing us a favor for being there. service was slow. Food was pricey and terrible. I had the Ceasar chicken wrap paid somethings around 9 dollars and Iwas served half a small wrap. The worst part was even though we bought our seats early, together and picked our seats during purchase were changed at the gate and my wife and I were seated in opposite sides, both in center seats and had to beg our way into sitting together."
Pros: "Great Dep and Arrival times. Punctuality. In fact flight arrived an hour earlier."
Cons: "In flight service appeared to be just mechanical.."
Cons: "Not only did they change gates several times and the flight was delayed close to two hours, they didn't provide any information and refused to answer any questions."
Pros: "The price was right and the flight was direct"
Cons: "Overhead is always a huge hassle. Airlines should just stop offering overhead storage to make embarkation/disembarkation much faster."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "It was a light flight, so I could have my carry-on with me even though I was in group 5. The breakfast -- berry pecan French toast -- was surprisingly tasty and satisfying (if not very attractively presented)."
Cons: "Too bad I had to pay so much for the exit row seat. I'm tall and it's needed for standard comfort (as opposed to extra comfort). Oh well. Gotta squeeze those dollars out of the passengers every way they can."
Pros: "Got us safely and conveniently to Vic at a good price and on time. Flight attendant was fine and cooperative, though no special warmth."
Cons: "I have one star on food and entertainment because there wasn't any of either, but that's understandable for a short flight. No issues."
