Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "wasn't able to incline my seat..."
Cons: "being able to incline my seat..."
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
Pros: "Quick & easy flight"
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Pros: "The crew was super courteous and nice."
Cons: "Nice newer aircraft and the crew goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, arrived on time - run of the mill stuff for Air NZ. Crew very good as per normal"
Cons: "I swear the seats are getting more and more 'scrunchy'. There are more appropriate places to get almost intimate with your seat buddy."
Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Pros: "Flew spaceseat home and loved it to pieces. Tired so fell asleep for main course. Remote gate boarding but that is LAX's airports fault. Crew are brilliant as always. Good to chat. Smooth flight home - yay!"
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "entertainment, cleanliness, comfort"
Cons: "seats go far back in front of your face"
Pros: "Comfy front row seat on Q300, quick trip"
Pros: "We upgraded to premium economy, and Tony was very attentive and took great care of us!"
Pros: "Seats, blankets, entertainment system and service was solid. Food was also good, not great, but included in fair which is nice. Cabin Crew were a delight."
Cons: "I needed to receive a boarding pass in person, could not receive a digital one before arriving at LAX."
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Cons: "Temperature on the plane kept shifting from freezing cold to too hot."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."
Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for 3/4ths of the movies and shows. Kayak didn't specify whether I had a checked bag or not so when I got to the airport I had to fork over $120! I had no choice because I'm not going to leave my luggage behind. I was not pleased with this third party booking."
Pros: "Smoothe flight"
Cons: "1/2 hour late to depart"
Pros: "Boarding from last row first"
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "Handsome, kind and efficient crew. Good amount of space in and around my seat. I was not cramped, although I was in the economy section. The plane interior was indeed nice. Power outlets (both USB and 110V DC) in my seat (I assume then, every seat had that). I fly few times a year between the West Coast and Europe and my overall flight experience on this flight I think was the best one I've seen in years. Food, quality and selection was good. Nice wines in economy. Sufficient number of clean, sufficiently roomy and well stocked toilets. The fare rate I was able to get was outstanding and contributed to the overall satisfaction. Even my neighbor, in the seat next to me was very polite, quiet and pleasure to travel with (though here New Zealand Air perhaps had less of an influence)."
Pros: "Unlike a trip on Air New Zealand several years ago, there is actually enough leg room now so knees don't push into the seat in front. That is a huge improvement! The airplane we flew in this trip was a nice new one, very well designed."
Cons: "No complaints! Air New Zealand really seems to be putting forward a god effort, and it shows. Hope they keep up these service standards and improvements over the past."
Pros: "Great entertainment system with lots of selections. Electrical outlets and USB port also great amenities"
Cons: "I am a small person and found the legroom to be inadequate. I paid $50 to upgrade the seats to economy plus to give us a bit more space but it wasn't any better. For a long, overseas flight, more space is needed. I had more legroom on my domestic flight with United. Also, the airline attendants for Air NZ were unpleasant and downright grumpy at times. It made a long, uncomfortable flight seem a whole lot longer."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable experience ever! I was disturbed and/or woken up several times, during flight, by the flight attendances to place my seat in the upright position to accommodate the person sitting behind me who either wanted to drink alcoholic beverages every hour on the hour."
Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"
Pros: "Great seats on the 787 dreamliner"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "They all very much friendly staff and very helpful"
Pros: "The service was really good"

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "Travelling with baby/kids/family....not good with this plane, And when asking APPLE JUICE for my baby, they so really PELIT ,only give one glass, i cannot asking 2 glass , im thristyyy n need sweet , coz we cannot bring our any kind of WATER to plane.... I will not fly with qantas anymore...."
Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."
Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."
Pros: "Smooth boarding Comfortable seat,love the entertainment as I could not sleep. Managed to catch on lots of movies that I have not seen."
Cons: "First stage , food not too crash. Rest fine."
Pros: "Clean, timely, organized, good food, good entertainment, smooth... Aussome! :)"
Cons: "My remote in my arm rest (58D) was a bit broken. While it still worked, the flap was missing some screws to hold it in place. Also, the touch screen oftentimes had issues sensing my finger on the pause button. Overall it did not hinder me from enjoying the entertainment services provided."
Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"
Pros: "QANTAS were excellent."
Cons: "That we missed our connecting flight (not our fault) but they put us on another flight immediately after, so it was all good"
Pros: "Handling our expenses during the delay"
Cons: "Changed our seats. We were not put next to each other. Reservations did a horrible job, could not get any information from them on my booking. The rebooking procedures were handled poorly. People with connections should have been handled separately and in a different way. Some people got rescheduled on earlier flights than we were told but did not know about it so many missed their rescheduled flights."
Pros: "The crew we're wonderful and very attentive."
Cons: "For being one of the longest flights in the world, there is little in the way if accommodations to make it any easier. The food was less than desirable and the seats not nearly as comfortable as they should be."
Cons: "Regarding Qantas flight 568 on March 11, 2018, from Perth to Sydney: the plane was old, extremely filthy, and falling apart."
Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."
Pros: "Quantas rerouted our SFO - SDY non stop trouble LAX to pick up 28 Passengers!! So 270 Passengers ha to endure an additional 3grs 30 min. No compensation not even a drink voucher! Not up to Quantas standards."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."
Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."
Cons: "when my bag got lost"
Pros: "Checking in and boarding was good and reasonably fast. Room available for everyone's hand luggage. Toilets were reasonable. Food in economy was ok."
Cons: "No hot USB port in economy. Inflight information system is old and screen resolution and contrast is not so good. Best to use own headphones."
Cons: "Seats too closely squashed together Screen faulty towards end of flight Tried unsuccessfully to check in online - did not get an aisle seat which I specifically requested all along"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "We were two hours late taking off because of mechanical glitches. We missed our original connection and our baggage was lost on our additional flights."
Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "charging extra money for seat selection cabin service"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Could use a better description of chicken dish. Did not say that it was curry flavors"
Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."
Pros: "Again, top quality service and support from all qantas employees. Good was yum also! And the Rv made time go by fast."
Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."
Cons: "Five hour delay due to faulty maintenance at LAX. Pilot (rightly) refused to fly until maintenance work correctly completed. Plane then diverted to Brisbane to change crew, en route to Melbourne."
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Pros: "I was fortunate to a e a points upgrade to 1st Class Like a dream"
Pros: "Qantas was half the price of what I had paid for last year on United. Overall the price was great for I had paid for. The staffs were friendly. They let the passengers move around because there were plenty of seats."
Cons: "I didn't like how they didn't give us notification of how far out we were to landing. I end up going to the restroom a few outs. The flight attendant kept knocking on the door. Obviously, I cannot stop what I am doing to go out."
Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"
Pros: "they gave me the special food"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "More entertainment choices"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "As much as the flight was truly very good and the crew very friendly and helpful as much as the equipment (airplane, seats, entertainment) really shabby and certainly not worth the the 2500,00 $ I paid for a better seat. I could of flown with Air transat and get better than I got with Air Canada. I feel it was rip off. Quality - price not there . Please give your crew a better uniform. The ones they wear now is very sad and oldish looking. If I think this and am 67 years old, imagine what the younger generation thinks."
Pros: "Everything was perfect on the flight. The service, the food and the crew."
Cons: "Seats are a bit small. Not very comfortable and touch screen of entertainment system was slow."
Pros: "Zone boarding"
Cons: "Very hot terminal quite sweaty"
Cons: "Lack of communication. Crew was unattentitive and seemed to not know protocol or appear to have things under the control."
Pros: "I was first in zone three to enter the craft. Still overhead bins!!"
Cons: "Worrying about overhead bins!"
Pros: "The seating was good and the pilot was friendly."
Cons: "There was not a good movie selection and there was not a lot of information regarding the altitude and there was not very much warning during turbulence."
Pros: "Had to cancel due to flooding at my house. Air Canada was super kind and offered me a credit. Thank you!"
Pros: "Where do i start? It’s a short flight to be sure but air canada planes never feel like many Other airlines’ mini planes or puddle jumpers. they seem new, spacious, seat back Entertainemnt, just great. Also, there is no scrimping on Service. How many Delta or united or American flights have i taken on this route only to be told “coffee or water” and sometimes no coffee “the flight is too short”. Nonsense! Granted I was in business, but I had a full hot breakfast served and a full array of beverages offered. It AC can do it, everyone can. The flight attendant was lovely."
Cons: "The flight was too short :)"
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "On time,good boarding."
Cons: "Out of food to buy for dinner."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The counter assistant was very, very nice."
Cons: "It is good that the flight was very short. The seats were crammed together and the plane was very small. I felt like I was in a sardine can."
Cons: "No entertainment no snacks no checked in luggage. You have to pay to rent iPad to watch inflight movies as pay for earphones. Air Canada has become a premium priced airline with extra low cost /no frills service. Sad and disappointing. Last time I am flying with AC. Rather book cheaper airlines and know what to expect than pay a premium and get even less than the low cost option. Boarding staff was rude pushing people etc"
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Delay was not explained, gate change was not communicated. Poor communication overall."
Pros: "Decent movie selection on one of my flights"
Cons: "I had booked my Air Canada trip and had a single stop-over while I switched to a different plane. Both of these planes were Air Canada. I Even though I made it through Customs in the shortest time possible, and back through security, I still managed to narrowly make my second flight. They were final-calling my name and actually taking off earlier than expected. Had I been 2 more minutes late, my flight would probably have taken off. I didn't check any bags either, so had I checked one, I don't think I would have made my second flight."
Pros: "Nice service by flight attendants"
Cons: "Late departure due to mechanical issues."
Cons: "The flight was at least 1/2 late leaving. We were told we had to detour to Toronto to refuel as the plane couldn't hold enough fuel to make it to Los Angles. This caused us to make an unplanned stop which added a total of another 2 3/4 hours to our trip. Really not enough fuel to make a trip we paid for. The cabin was very warm, and we had already eaten our food we brought. Many people missed connections... Not pleased with Air Canada"
Pros: "Alles goed"
Pros: "Air Canada was kind enough to give us a hotel voucher."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we weren't informed until we arrived at the airport. An email was supposedly sent, but I didn't receive it. We had to fly out the next morning and missed half a day of work. Fortunately, we didn't have anything important scheduled."
Pros: "No issues with the plane or service itself but we were stuck waiting for a replacement plan for a late night flight and departed 4 hours after schedule."
Cons: "Old planes,limited food"
Cons: "7 hours flight delay"
Pros: "Lots of leg room and was able to board early"
Cons: "Food not good"
Cons: "I did not take it."
Pros: "It was on time - no delays"
Cons: "Would have liked some snacks along with the drinks offered."
Pros: "Media and staff"
Cons: "No organization for filling planes. Worse than Rome."
Pros: "Cabin crew were really nice."
Cons: "The media selection was minimal."
Pros: "I liked the airport design at Montreal."
Cons: "the whole process in Montreal seemed cold. Not really friendly compared to our domestic flight from Los Angeles to Montreal. The crew weren't very friendly at all. It's as if we were bothering them to ask a question or for them to give a smile once in a while."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No leg room Overbooked Bad choice of movies"
Cons: "There was little seating space. I was unable to fully recline back because the person sitting behind me was too tall. Also had broken/uneven food tray."
Cons: "put on stand by, while this was a non required stop over to Brussels."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "Pretty much everything was a bad experience from start to finish. The flight was delayed a half an hour which is fine and can be understandable. The space in the seats was almost criminal for an 8 hour flight. Pretty the equivalent of having people shoulder to shoulder. Impossible to try and sleep on an overnight flight. During mid flight I noticed that I had a lot of trouble breathing and thought it was just me. My wife said the same thing to me and someone on the flight needed medical assistance for oxygen. It was extremely hot the whole flight with no ability to control the air flow which made it even worse. The entertainment selection was good however the device was almost unsable because it was very laggy and it wouldn't select what you wanted. It was easily the worst experience I had and I only really went into some of the details. Having trouble breathing was by far the worst part and I couldn't believe it. My flight back was glaringly better so I'm perplexed by why this was so bad."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and attentive crew."
Cons: "Other than delays and gate changes, flight was fine."
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Pros: "Boarded and arrived on time."
Cons: "Too much waiting at Toronto airport"
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "No free meal on 6 hours flight, small plane, chanel gates..."
Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"
Pros: "Great short flight"
Booked economy through United - air canada treated it as standby and was almost refused boarding.
Pros: "Crew in flight was nice and professional Sit in 1st class was comfortable"
Cons: "For this flight everything was good"
Cons: "Late crew caused delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "Less cramped airplane: there is nothing wrong with the plane itself but every time I have travelled this route the plane has been completely full (this time it was even oversold) so a bigger plane would help"
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Pros: "The connection time Mach very well。"
Cons: "I learned that 3 flight together long hours have no food been sever and we have time to get food from airport. Next time I will do better☺。"
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."
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: "Seats seems like they becpme closer and closer to each other making any travel ove 5.7ft very uncomfortable thru the journey"
Cons: "Over size person sitting next to me. I was very tight in my space."
Pros: "Wide body jet on a domestic route has a wider cabin."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no PTV entertainment, you have to stream from the wi-fi using united app, but you have to pay for wifi to download it."
Pros: "The crew was cordial and attentive"
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight, but don’t force me to buy either a movie or TV show. At least give me some free options."
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."
Cons: "Smoke on the plane crazy delay"
Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Pros: "We left early and they gave me a set of headphones because I couldn't find mine."
Cons: "Cramped and would have liked the whole soda for a 3.5 hour flight. TV should have been included."
Pros: "I loved how comfortable the plane was. The snacks were tasty! My husband and I actually looked in the grocery store for them when we returned home :)"
Pros: "Seats were very roomy and pilot did a great job!. Boarding went great!"
Cons: "We were stuck on tarmac but this was weather related. No gluten free snacks. Some crew was nice others less so."
Pros: "Price point. Grabbed the flight on a rather spontaneous move. Flight was on time, although started boarding way early."
Cons: "Tight seating."
Cons: "It was a long delay, which meant I missed my connection at O'Hare even though I had a 3 hour window."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
