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: "There was not enough tome to catch my connecting flight and I had to stay in the airport an additional 6 hours and had to stay the night in the hotel and then get to Portland on another airline 21 hours later than planned."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The food sucked."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"
Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"
Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."
Pros: "Nice crews"
Cons: "No headsets to hear movies"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st Class. Very grateful for the experience. Outstanding service. Very professional crew. Awesome recliner seats. What's not to like about premium service?"
Cons: "Too short leg :( This upgrade would have been awesome for the longer leg of the trip (for a much needed decent sleep)."
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Their efficient technique of boarding in Zones made it quick and effortless. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The entertainment was good and the flights where always on time.The food was excellent flying from Venice! Overall a great experience with a world class airway."

Pros: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"
Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"
Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food frequency for 16 hour flight was awfully inadequate. Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. No intermittent beverage and snack service in 16 hour flight segment. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Poor management didn't provide a hotel for layovers more than 12 hrs"
Pros: "Cabin crew courtesy."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"
Pros: "Inflight services, food"

Pros: "Food comfort"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
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."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time"
Cons: "Food could be better"
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"

Cons: "Not enough recline in economy to really b comfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
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: "Entertainment and the seats (leg room)"
Cons: "Food is horrible. The option you want usually runs out and then you are at the mercy of the service crew to find one"
Pros: "Love the A380 - the sheer size of it allowed for more personal space. Consequently, it was a much more comfortable flight."
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"
Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."
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: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."

Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"

Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "I wasn’t sure why my small rolling luggage was being tagged and told to be left at the gate. Others had their rolling pieces brought onto the plane and there was enough room, so I was a little worried about if someone was going through it or if it would make it to the destination.

Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs.

Cons: "No TV or entertainment. Very little leg room... !!"
Pros: "Plane was new and very comfortable. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants had to serve food/drinks, which they did the entire flight (literally, drink service took 2 hours). People got drunk and super loud.

Cons: "Lost luggage. Bag that I should have been allowed to take on as a carry on but woman at check in said it was a full flight. Meaning while the whole bin above me was empty. At least let me gate check bag if it didn’t fit. Especially because she let the couple in front of me take their bag as a carry on afyer she first told them they couldn’t take it. Double standard. Then after all that the bag is lost. I fly foreign often and Food was mediocre."

Pros: "Pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "Flight delay - but that is not always under airline control."

Qhen we went to board the shuttle bus to the tarmac we were.pullednout of the.line and made to wait 25 minutes and ended up.being the last people to board. We arrived at the airport 2 hours in advance and cpuld have handled this in.advance if we had been notified properly. The BA employee checking us in didn't care that he pulled us and made us wait.... we were very unhappy as to how this was handled."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and did a great job serving passengers in a timely manner."
Cons: "- my headphone jack was broken so I had to ask to move 3 times, and then finally walked up to the back of the plane to ask to be seated somewhere else - This particular flight had an unusually high number of babies. I was seated next to a couple with twin babies and of course they cried every so often. Only a few rows away there were another two babies. - food selection was super heavy on sugar or carbs. Entre choices were pasta with tomato sauce or chicken with cheese ravioli. Almost no one chose the pasta. Please introduce healthier options with actual protein for meat eaters and vegetarians."
Pros: "Ok food."
Cons: "Horrible flight from a comfort standpoint."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "As ever, BA Flight attendants are courteous and approachable - consistently one of the best adverts fort the airline."
Cons: "Poor quality of service and courtesy provided by outsourced ground handling providers"
Pros: "Good economy flight from Heathrow to Madrid. Would recommend!"
Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The check in people' rudeness, awful food, slow service"
Pros: "Staff excellent, check in straight forward, and very pleasant and quick flight."
Cons: "Very long bus ride from T5 to the Boeing 777, which seemed a little "tired". Seat in Economy Plus showed evidence of previous spillages, screen was smaller than I recall on previous flights."
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: "They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days."
Cons: "Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."
Pros: "I was not made to board the plane because I didn't have a transit visa to London causing me to be stranded in Boston.i called the customer service a month before my departure but he was not able to tell me to get a transit visa to London before my departure"
Cons: "British airways were not helpful....webjet costumer service did not also provide me with enough information before booking me on the flight...I therefore need a refund of my money ASAP"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived ontime and early both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable in economy,"
Pros: "I landed in San Diego"
Cons: "The seat was so small if I dropped something there was no way I could pick it up off the floor. I had to hold my arms in front of me because with an adult beside me there was no way both our arms could rest at the same time. I think if seating in coach gets any smaller you'll have to give disclaimers that only children should consider coach seats as suitable."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Some passengers were allowed to drink excessively becoming very loud and continually bumping into aisle-seated passengers."
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Pros: "Customer Concern."
Cons: "Food Quality needs improvement w.r.t the Indian Food."
Pros: "Clean and newer plane"
Cons: "Row 6 seat C (aisle)... The curtain for biz class needs a better hook so that it doesn't rest on the legs of the person in that seat (6c)"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and great inflight movies"
Cons: "Even though we selected to be seated together, on all of our flights we were seated apart."
Pros: "Excellent service with good major airline."
"United jerked us around. We had Business Class seats but were refused entry to the United Lounge because we were leaving for Boston from the International terminal where our flight landed. Really!?"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
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: "The flight started with 7 min delay for one crew not showing up. Eventually we had to wait on the plane for one hour for the plane to fly"
Cons: "contacted customer service 3 times while the first 2 times over the phone and was promised to get a $100 travel voucher in 24-48 hours. Never got that. When called 3rd time I was asked to email their support which I did and one week have passed and nobody bothered to respond yet. Typical United!"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."
Cons: "One of the csbin crew was very angry, rude snd confrontationsl to the wheelchsir assistsnt. He challenged her sbout not picking up my carryon from the foor where he put on the floor. She commented she did not like to work for Uunitd because they were demsnding and demesning. This united rmployee csme back 4 times as we werr behind each other when we deplaned. Twice he szid,"L'm dorry but....." finslly he adked fpr her nsme. Tsking out hid isdues on another employee was unvslled for and unprofessional."
Pros: "This was an overseas/overnight flight and I was a little concerned because last time I had a 10 hour flight with United (NY to Hawaii) they gave us nothing but water and pretzels. This time we got 2 meals, dinner and breakfast, plus beer and wine. Service was very good, staff very friendly, flight on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Ended up waiting on bags for the better part of 30 mins"
Cons: "I hated that the flight was about 90 minutes LATE which made me almost miss my next flight (had I not jogged an entire airport, I would have)"
Pros: "On time, not crowded, seat with enough space, responsive screen and good sound"
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: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."
Cons: "Spotty Wi-Fi. Only on an American flight"
Cons: "This airline sucks so bad........I had a flight that' was suppose to leave at 6 pm from salt lake.....to LA .needless to say it's 11pm and I'm still seatingbon the runway"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline and were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Pros: "It's a plane and it's a flight"
Cons: "I don't understand the stripped down ticket where I have to check in my carry on and only allowed a personal item. The same exact plane flown by Air NZ allows all passengers a carry-on plus personal item."
Pros: "I enjoyed the assistance, the food and the movies"
Cons: "I liked every single bit of my experience."
Cons: "We star boarding 20 min late, after that the airplane was totally full i was separated from my family"
Pros: "Flight was cold and they did not have blankets"
Pros: "Great crew, boarding process, drink service"
Cons: "No entertainment or food served on flight for free"
Pros: "United customer service was able to to find alternative flights"
Cons: "My flights going to and coming back from New Orleans got delayed by a large amount of time both ways at nearly the last minute"
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Pros: "The separate lines for group numbers."
Cons: "Kiosks service was confusing. I paid for my baggage and received my boarding pass. However, I was supposed to stay at my kiosk until an agent came. There were 10 kiosks with only 2 agents helping people and no screen notification or sign asking customers to wait. In addition, TSA pre-check is not available at this airport."
Cons: "Neither my fiancée nor I were particularly fond of the inflight sauna. I had try dry my sweat soaked shirt in the bathroom while waiting to make my connection. If the flight had been any longer I would have opened the door to let a breeze in."
Pros: "Economy plus seating for free. Checking in early has its benefits since you get the extra legroom perks without having to pay for it."
Cons: "An hour delay for boarding due to computer problems, but these things happen from time to time."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Pros: "Seats were small. Passengers very rude!"
Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Cons: "I hated not having access to movies on my personal device."

Pros: "Every thing I like about the flight"
Pros: "Good weathet. Smooth sailing. Arrived early."
Cons: "Baggage took a long time"
Pros: "Although the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane i got my money back."
Pros: "I have nobody sitting next to me"
Cons: "The 20 min delay"
Pros: "Staff are nice and helpful."
Cons: "Everything is an additional cost! Food, tv, beverages and that is not how it is anywhere else unless you are on a budget airline or flight which this was not."
Cons: "Inconsistency of United over size baggage embargo."
Pros: "The flight was a lot more than what I had expected. I have spent my life staying in many hotel rooms and my fair share in planes, this was an excellent flight. It was on time both from Appleton to Chicago and Chicago to Houston. I have no complaints."
Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"
Pros: "No problems"
