Ground staff at bangalore are very helpful

Ground staff at bangalore are very helpful

I have Covid because they didn’t enforce face mask on the plane.

The entire crew was awesome, very courteous and well above the standard. Keep up the good service and I would want to travel more with Qatar Airways.

Not bad

Very organized airline with friendly and professional air and land crew.

The breakfast menu was quite disappointing in comparison to the other food I’m used to being served on Qatar Airways

Everything was okay

food could have been better.

The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution.

Excellent

👍

Cons: "Everything was just great in their business class."
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "Breakfast was good; the first meal was average"
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Qatar airways claims to have inflight wifi. But it is not true because it did not work in either of my flights. Food could have been better."
Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "Aircraft was very nice and comfortable. Flight crew as friendly."
Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent seats..."
Pros: "Nice menue, friendly staff, very comfortable seats"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food Plane was freezing on international flights and at 3:50am in the morning pls provide blankets to all"
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
Cons: "The food was actually very good, nothing was an extra charge and the flight attendants were wonderful. US airlines should really do a better job!"
Pros: "Wonderful crew. Pretty nice and clean plane, I wish the normal distances between chairs were a bit bigger. My knees hurt. Flight was very smooth, landing seamless."
Cons: "Boarding in jfk is always a nightmare, and this was not any better. Huge crowds blocking the hallways, boarding started 15 minutes late, departed late - therefore arrived late and we missed the connection to Kiev, had to spend 8 hours in Doha."
Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Cons: "Not one of their newest planes."
Pros: "طيران ممتاز"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Cons: "I had to ask for wine to 3 different hostess's"
Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Pros: "Best airline in the sky"
Pros: "all the crew they were awesome it's my favorite airline QR⛤⛥⛦⛤⛥⛦⛤"
Cons: "I like every things"

Great flight - great crew. Thanks American!

Leaving our luggage in Dallas the night before my daughters Vet school interview was not acceptable. We asked multiple times before volunteering to check our bags. Then American Airlines delivered the luggage to the wrong place. We had to buy her new interview clothes and toiletries.

Ground stop at ORD delayed our flight out of Burlington. Arrived ORD with a few minutes to spare. Sure would’ve been nice to know that our connecting flight had been delayed. Would’ve saved some stressful running from gate to gate. Otherwise: all good.

Cons: "The airline needs to board and deboard by group number."
Cons: "Being offered a cup of coffee would be nice"
Cons: "they keep using a very old 767: no personal entertainment screen, no USB outlet and absolutely freezing temperature. Most of the people put on their heavy coats."
Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"

Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Ok trip"
Cons: "Could not watch movies on app or website.. “technical dificulties” made the trip longer and dull"
Pros: "I was in business class and the individual cubicles were so comfortable. I slept well. The airline attendant was so attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Going through LAX what a mess"
Pros: "Although they charged me $10 to book a seat for check in it allowed me to pick one that keep the middle seat open for my wife."

Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"
Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."

Pros: "Boarded on time, and was a quick flight."
Cons: "There were cabin pressure issues mid-flight that really hurt my head."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable on American Airlines compared to Qantas"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner"
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats."
Pros: "Left an hour late, but it was the airport's fault, not the airline's. Arrived very close to the original arrival time."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused by the airline's identity crisis. It was an Avianca flight, not an American Airlines flight."
Cons: "Thought I would be flying on Quantas, not AA"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was efficient. Flight was fine"
Pros: "The crew were fast and friendly but maybe too fast. It felt a bit rushed."
Cons: "It felt a bit rushed."
Pros: "we paid $300 for more leg room on the 787...it was great....really comfortable seats."
Cons: "the volume on back seat screen....impossible to get right with the touch screen. GO BACK TO KNOBS PLEASE AS SOME AUTO COMPANIES ARE DOING."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The check in computer crashed before it started. Only manual check in available and the staff wasn't trained to handle it. It delayed the flight over 2 hours and then the process screw up someone visas and they had to be removed with their luggage. But you know this already! You need to implement a better secondary system and have your employees be trained to use it."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Cons: "I am an AA member and usually fly them domestic. The seats are horribly uncomfortable for an international flight. The flight attendants woke you up for meals. There is no space between you and the seat in front of you and they didn't tell anyone to put their seat up while you were eating. It was really difficult to get comfortable. I find it easy to fall asleep on planes and I couldn't fall asleep on this one."
Cons: "Felt as though some American Airlines crew members were abrupt. I've never experienced that with Qantas or Jetstar."
Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."
Pros: "- The boarding process went very fast and smooth for such a packed plane."
Cons: "- food was HORRIBLE. I asked for the chicken dinner and it was COLD and disgusting. There should always be a pasta option on a flight. Also, they ran out of red wine before dinner. - the staff skipped over me TWICE when handing out beverages. I had to remind them that I existed twice and they didn't apologize for skipping over me."
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"

Communication - 20 minute delay turned into over 1.5 hour delay with minimal communication

Delay it they kept up informed

Pros: "Food and beverage service was great. Wine/beer and hot meals provided on the long flight were really appreciated. Excellent restrooms on the 787."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for the long flight."
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "Travel agency did not notify me that I needed to get a Yellow Fever immunization"
Pros: "Staff were ok."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed but they delayed it 30 minutes at a time. Giant lines to board, poorly organized. Flight overbooked. Finally we were seated and they announce another 30 min delay because the “casseroles” weren’t hot. Flight attendants were clumsy and dropped ice on my head. Tiny seats."
Pros: "The staff and efficiency"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The food was ok. Movie selection was decent and the screens are a lot better than on jet airways."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed. Service was a little slow, but the crew was courteous and did their best."
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food options, Air Canada used to have tasty food!"
Cons: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Cons: "Everything was sub-par, the food, entertainment, the crew responsiveness, I asked for two drinks and was told that I could only get one at a time... really? The crew was multilingual, which was great, but also very annoying to have to listen to announcements in 5 different languages. They could use media with standardized messaging and a choice of an appropriate language, but these would make too much sense I guess. This was the tightest coach I've ever flown in, the seat ergonomics was horrible."
Pros: "general state and size and comfort of the plane. Overall AC experience always good. The flight back to montreal, the service was exceptional!"
Cons: "only a dairy plate available, next time I need to specify no dairy entertainment -- too many ads and no previews for the movies so I have to start playing then stop and go through the entire same series of ads for the next one. the system just seems clunky and antiquated in today's tech age."
Pros: "The end of the trip and delivery of luggage 24 hours after arriving in Vienna"
Cons: "Old and partly broken plane, horrible food. 2 officials to immigrate hundreds of people at Brussels. Breakdown of luggage system in Brussels. No luggage at arrival in Vienna."
Pros: "Predictable, no cost surprises, included all normal long haul flight amenities."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "For business class the accommodation was appalling. The seat would not even recline more than a couple of inches, let alone lay flat which is what one is paying for. The touch screen entertainment did not work. The flight arrived too late to make connections - again. The boarding agent at the gate in Los Angeles was one of the rudest and most arrogant men I have ever encountered. I complained to the plane's Captain about him, as he was going through. All the business class passengers around me were commenting on it. One was even filming his egregious behaviour for Facebook. He alone was enough to put one off Air Canada ."

Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "nothing was impressing about Air Canada"
Cons: "Seats was not comfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with good entertainment system"

Pros: "Entertainment system had good offers."
Cons: "Queuing in CDG was inefficient as was much of the airport experience at all sites (outside of PHL)."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Plenty of Entertainment Choices"
Pros: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Air Canada used to be one of the best airlines in North America now I would rate them as one of the worst! Every since they started the air Canada rouge flights.

Cons: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "Convenient times and pricing."
Cons: "Seat spacing and amount of space for carry-on luggage is not enough."
Cons: "Flights got delayed both going away and coming home. They almost lost baggage and I was going on a cruise the following day. Workers didn't seem to care that I was going to miss my connection. Kinda made it the connecting city's problem."
Pros: "A reasonable amount of leg room (I'm 6'1" and didn't have my knees pressed against the seat ahead), decent selection of films, and regular food--airplane food, but decent for that."
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "The food and service and all the delays. One was cancelled and the hotel that the put us up in the food was horrible. They offered us no compensation."
Cons: "Not on time. I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was old and looked like it was going to fall apart. My seat was torn and the back of the seat in front of me was broken. Not my favorite airline by far."
Cons: "The Crew Was rude. the seats were small, NO TV's, for a 10 hour flight. Had to "rent" a iPad. I was not able to download movies on my own device. Had to pay for drinks, on an international flight, Are you kidding me!!?? I will never fly Air Canada Rouge again. Very disappointing."

Cons: "On the air canada website it said food included on international flights but when I got on the plane they said Panama - Toronto was not covered as International. ...really?"

Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice"
Cons: "I hated the breakfast food. One of the flight attendants pushed me when I was leaning in my seat to see something ahead of me. I thought that was very rude. She could have asked me to move."
Pros: "I wish it was better advertised that there was no dinner service on a three hour flight!"
Cons: "If I am booked on an international flight where I am allowed to check in 2 bags, why would this first leg charge me $70 extra for a piece of baggage??? Does not make any sense!"
Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"
Pros: "Staff are very kind, and seat was comfortable, but it was not perfectly clean. In average, I satisfied with this flight."

Cons: "We purchased our tickets well in advance yet we were not able to sit together. There was no options to choose seats, even for extra pay. it was also very difficult to get ahold of someone on the phone. I was on hold with interjet for over 15 min.

Finally, on another leg of the trip they never played the safety video nor gave the demonstration. I know that's against the law"
Pros: "Nothing. On the first leg of the round they moved my flight back FIVE HOURS! It messed up my weekend but I still went on vacation. On this leg, the one home to Monterrey, they moved the flight back three hours and forced me to miss it, and they couldn't fly me home for over 24 hrs. I canceled the flight for some refund, and then spent hundreds buying a new flight on a new airline. This happens a lot, and I won't fly with them anymore unless there is no choice. It's a shame as I really like their seats/legroom and they have really polite professionals working for them."

Cons: "Don't not hold your customers captive to inane and annoying endless commercials and stupid shows with the volume up for everyone to hear. Headphones should be used if people are interested. Otherwise the volume should be OFF except for FAA regulated and mandated safety information. Totally ruined every leg of the flight. Will never fly interjet again!"
Pros: "Nothing, started with baggage policy that is not consistent. May not use internet again if charged for checked bag on return flight."
Cons: "When I checked baggage policy, I was allowed 2 checked bags for international flights. A travel companion left for the same destination 3 weeks earlier with 2 checked bags, she was only allowed 1 free bag. She contacted me to tell me I would only be allowed 1 free bag. I had to pay for my 1 checked."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was left in Mexico City, but they got it on the next flight to Oaxaca and delivered it to where we were staying a few hours later."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, staff nice"
Cons: "Only soft drinks available- no orange juice, chips were offered not healthy for my mom who has diabetes and high blood sugar. No low/no sugar options or low sodium."
Pros: "Courteous staff, great leg room between seats, and comfortable over all."
Cons: "The fact that all passengers were on board by the time the plain was supposed​ to take off (750pm), and the plain took off 40 minutes later and kept us all seating there without even offering water"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Aircraft is a nice size with enough leg room. Flight departed on time"

See previous comments. Flights cancelled and replaced with different itinerary resulting in 2 day delay in arriving at destination.

Pros: "Comodidad en el avión"
Cons: "Hay desorden en la coordinación de los vuelos, atrasos, yo tuve un atraso de 11 horas, otros perdieron conexión, y no es tampoco porque se paga barato, porque los pasajes están caros"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
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."
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Cons: "they changed our flight without notifying us! they messed up our seats and asked my mother to deplane! when we were flying with twin babies! they also gave us grief about gate checking something on the trip home that we had no problems with on the way there. honestly i will never fly united again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen and the food was tasty"
Cons: "My seat...not being able to pick an aisle seat. Also the passenger behind me kept doing something with her seat pocket and I could feel that everytime. Need more padding there. And halfway through the flight the screen quit working."
Pros: "The Air NZ FLight from Aickland to San Francisco was operated by United Airlines. The seat had excellent leg room. The attendants were very pleasant and available throughout."
Cons: "When I first border the plane there was another passes egg in my allocated seat. The selection of movies available was only okay. their is only a minimal number of toilets for the number of passengers and one of them was out of paper when I went or use it. But they were always clean."
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
