Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."

Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"

Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."

Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"

Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"

Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"

Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."

Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."

Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"

Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."

Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"

Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."

Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"

Cons: "Not enough choices for dinner. It was salmon yuck"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."

Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."

Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."

Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"

Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"

Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"

Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."

Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."

Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."

Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."

Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."

Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"

Pros: "Excellent service. I love Kayak is the best!"

Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"

Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."

Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"

Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."

Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"

Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
